Edelgard
There... We must rethink the supply route now that the battle lines have moved.
link
Edelgard
This one will be Hubert...and Count Bergliez will oversee this force here...

Byleth enters the scene
link
Edelgard
Ah, Professor... Is something wrong? Sorry, I thought I had a bit more time before the council meeting.
link
Edelgard
True. Though ideally, I'd like to hand off anything I can to my subordinates.
link
Edelgard
But while we're on the front lines, I can't help but worry about every little thing.
link
Edelgard
No bother at all, but I'm afraid I'm not quite finished here.
link
Edelgard
Still, I'm happy to see you. Your presence lightens my mood a great deal.
link
Edelgard
Now, let's see...
link
Hubert enters the scene
link
Hubert
Pardon, Your Majesty. An urgent matter.
link
Edelgard
What's happened?
link
Hubert
There is an army from Almyra at Fódlan's Throat. Reports indicate it is of appreciable size.
link
Fódlan's Throat?
link
Hubert
A steep mountain range runs along the border between Fódlan and Almyra.
link
Hubert
That mountain range is called Fódlan's Throat.
link
Hubert
The sturdy fortress built within those mountains is called Fódlan's Locket.
link
Hubert
It occupies the sole path through.
link
Hubert
The church and the Alliance nobles built the Locket to safeguard against Almyran invasion.
link
Edelgard
Normally, House Goneril watches over the fortress. In times of trouble, the lords join together to protect it.
link
Edelgard
But I assume it would be too difficult to defend against this incursion with only the troops of Goneril...
link
Hubert
The situation has been precarious for House Goneril since Holst fell ill.
link
Hubert
The heir to House Goneril, renowned for his bravery. He is Hilda's elder brother.
link
Edelgard
Holst is a formidable commander. It's only logical that House Goneril would struggle in his absence.
link
Edelgard
The Alliance has shattered. They can't request soldiers from the surrounding lords.
link
Edelgard
And the Imperial troops stationed there can't be relocated so easily.
link
Edelgard
The best course of action is for us to go out there and deal with this ourselves.
link
Edelgard
It's critical for us to protect that location. This is our chance to prove that we won't allow it to fall.
link
Hubert
Yes. It is to the benefit of our future governance not to abandon it.
link
Hubert
It seems this must be done. Will you assist us?
link
Edelgard
We'll depart after you finish making preparations. Move swiftly. We must move before the Almyran army crosses the Throat.
link
Edelgard
Yes... Preparations must still be made. We'll wait a bit longer.
link
Edelgard
If you're not going to join us, we'll take those who are able and willing. Don't worry about it.
