Byleth, Hubert enter the scene

Hubert
We are about to commence our attack on the Great Bridge of Myrddin. But first, allow me a moment of your time.
link
What do you need?
link
Hubert
It is something that I can only ask of you. Listen well...
link
Hubert
It concerns Lady Edelgard's uncle. The regent of the Empire, Lord Arundel.
link
Hubert
Although he is currently cooperating with Her Majesty, he maintains his own sizable military troops.
link
Hubert
It seems to me that his plans differ from our own.
link
Hubert
I assume you recall a certain group's scheming from five years ago.
link
Hubert
Solon and Kronya... They both served Lord Arundel.
link
Hubert
Professor, I understand how you must be feeling, considering what they did to your father.
link
Hubert
I know it must be foul to even consider cooperating with their kind.
link
Hubert
However, their power is essential for us at present. Edelgard also strongly opposed the idea at first.
link
Hubert
Our enemy is the Church of Seiros itself. It cannot be toppled with the Empire's might alone.
link
Hubert
Those working under Lord Arundel are extremely hostile toward the church.
link
Hubert
And the enemy of our enemy is... Well, I think you sufficiently understand by now.
link
Are you sure that's a good idea?
link
Hubert
Until all of Fódlan is united, it is a necessary evil. As for how we deal with them afterward... time will tell.
link
Hubert
Regardless, Her Majesty and I wish to join our power with yours.
link
Hubert
You should know that in her heart, Her Majesty regards that group as enemies of herself and her family.
link
Hubert
They used her father, the former emperor, as a puppet and murdered her siblings with their vile experimentation.
link
Hubert
I believe Her Majesty may have told you some of this herself. That is why this was a...very painful decision for her to make.
link
Hubert
I will do all I can to ensure her suffering is not in vain, and I hope I can count on you to do the same.
link
Hubert
As for all I have told you, please keep it in mind as we march forward.
link
Hubert
More importantly, I implore you to fight as best you can for Edelgard... From the bottom of my heart, I beg this of you.
