Rodrigue
Cornelia! I have a report from our scouts.
link
Rodrigue
The Imperial army that departed from Garreg Mach en route to the capital now appears be marching here.
link
Cornelia
What did you just say?!
link
Rodrigue
The speed of the army's movement quickens... They will be here to invade within days.
link
Rodrigue
I just sent some of my troops to support the capital. It is likely to be a fierce fight...
link
Cornelia
How could this be? I have not heard a thing about...
link
Cornelia
Ah... I understand now. I am the target.
link
Rodrigue
You? Are you sure they do not mean to take Arianrhod for strategic reasons?
link
Cornelia
It would appear so from the outside. However, the circumstances are not that simple.
link
Cornelia
And will you calm yourself? It will not be a fierce fight whatsoever.
link
Cornelia
The sweet children I have prepared will protect Arianrhod well...
link
Rodrigue
Cornelia...

Hubert
Arianrhod is a fortress city that was built about 400 years ago.
link
Hubert
Originally a base on the front lines of the battle against the Kingdom, it was built using Imperial money and technology.
link
Edelgard
However, the head of House Rowe secretly planned to betray the Empire.
link
Edelgard
As the fortress neared completion, it was rebuilt as a base to defend against the Empire.
link
Edelgard
When the fortress was completed, House Rowe declared its vassalage to the Kingdom.
link
Hubert
Since then, Arianrhod has never fallen. Not once.
link
Hubert
The beautiful white walls that protect it against its enemies have earned it the nickname the Silver Maiden.
link
Hubert
In the end, that is all it is to the Empire... the Silver Maiden stands as a bitter memory.
link
Petra
We will now be destroying that memory. The past is the past. Now is now.
link
Caspar
A fortress that has never fallen?! Ooh, I can't wait to make it fall!
link
Ferdinand
How savage of you. And yet, I must say I agree with the sentiment.
link
Ferdinand
Let us take the sturdy Arianrhod and continue our march against the Kingdom!
link
Bernadetta
An invincible fortress? Sounds perfect!
link
Linhardt
Unfortunately, it will soon no longer be invincible.
link
Linhardt
The Silver Maiden's iron skin is about to be damaged. It's sad, really.
link
Petra
Is it silver or iron? Use your language with clarity, please.
link
Dorothea
Really, Lin. There must be a better way to say that.
link
Dorothea
Since we are attacking a heavily guarded place, we must take extra care to prevent allies from getting injured.
link
Edelgard
Thank you, everyone. I'm counting on all of you. Now, let's resume our advance.
link
Hubert
This battle is for the future of Fódlan...
