Byleth, Hubert, Edelgard, Lord Arundel enter the scene
link
Lord Arundel
So, we have finally arrived. It has been a very, very long road.
link
Edelgard
Why are you here, Uncle? We haven't prevailed just yet.
link
Lord Arundel
Even better. I decided I wanted to see the end with my own eyes.
link
Lord Arundel
The very moment that humans will finally be free from the control of that false beast of a goddess...
link
Edelgard
Understood. Behold to your heart's content, just don't get in our way.
link
Lord Arundel
Of course. I could not stand to be dragged into the fighting.
link
Lord Arundel
When this fight is over, a world completely controlled by the Empire will be upon us.
link
Edelgard
Not completely... I will only do what I must.
link
Edelgard
But until our reign becomes stable...
link
Edelgard
Uncle... No, all of you. I believe that your power and knowledge may be essential during that time of transition.
link
Lord Arundel
Perhaps so. We also will do what we must.
link
Lord Arundel
For that short while, we will lend you our strength.
link
Edelgard
Yes... We're counting on you. For now.
link
Byleth, Edelgard enter the scene
link
Edelgard
Professor, may I speak with you?
link
What's on your mind?
link
Edelgard
I know the timing is less than ideal, but there's something I need to tell you.
link
Edelgard
I imagine you've already sensed it, but even still...
link
Edelgard
I must tell you the truth...of the power you wield and of what you are.
link
Edelgard
I expected as much.
link
Edelgard
Have you still yet to realize it? If so, then it's absolutely vital that I tell you.
link
Edelgard
You, like Rhea, share a bloodline with the so-called goddess.
link
Edelgard
Your mother likely had some connection to the goddess, whose power has always been sleeping within you.
link
Edelgard
Five years ago when your power awakened, I was afraid you would choose to join with Rhea.
link
Edelgard
I did. As you know, my goal is to free our world from the control of Rhea and the other children of the goddess.
link
Edelgard
Yes. In the Sealed Forest, when you returned from the eternal darkness...
link
Edelgard
As you know, my goal is to free our world from the control of Rhea and the other children of the goddess.
link
Edelgard
I seek to obliterate her, as well as those around her who use the church's power to control Fódlan.
link
Edelgard
I swore to free the people from Rhea by striking her down, whether or not it meant making an enemy of you.
link
Edelgard
And yet...you came to my aid and chose to walk with me on the path against Rhea.
link
Edelgard
I was overjoyed of course, but I was also confused.
link
Edelgard
I thought that perhaps it wasn't the path you were meant to take.
link
Edelgard
But I chose to trust in you, to rely on you and your strength. And now, here we are.
link
Edelgard
Thank you for listening, my teacher. I'm glad I finally had the chance to talk to you about it.
link
Edelgard
After Rhea is gone from this world, I don't know what will become of you.
link
Edelgard
But whatever happens, I hope you know that you're very special to me.
link
Edelgard
You are the one person in this world who can share the heavy burden I must carry. Someone without equal who I can always speak my mind to...
link
Edelgard
I hope that I hold a special place in your heart as well. But regardless...
link
Edelgard
It's time. Let's go, Professor.
