Claude
Hm...

Byleth enters the scene
link
Claude
Very interesting...
link
Claude
Oh, Teach! How long have you been there?
link
Claude
Don't sneak up on me like that! You almost gave me a heart attack.
link
Claude
Anyway, I'm reading the official biography of the Four Saints, as sanctioned by the church.
link
Claude
I know you're not very familiar with the teachings of Seiros, but even you must have read it at least once.
link
Claude
Huh. I'm amazed you managed to get a job teaching at an academy run by the church.
link
Claude
Tell me again... How exactly did you manage to get a job teaching at an academy run by the church?
link
Claude
Well, whether you've read the biography or not, the Four Saints must at least ring a bell, right?
link
Claude
Well then, I've got a little quiz for you. Name the Four Saints, companions of the great Saint Seiros.
link
Claude
I'll give you a hint. There was Cichol, Cethleann, Indech, and...who was the fourth one again?
link
Claude
Ooh, tough luck! That would be incorrect. The name you were looking for is "Macuil."
link
Claude
Correct! I was hoping you'd know that much, at least.
link
Claude
Ooh, tough luck! That would be incorrect. The name you were looking for is "Macuil."
link
Claude
In any case, you can learn some interesting things reading about the life and times of Saint Macuil.
link
Claude
For instance, he was more skilled with his hands than his fellow saints, and even became an accomplished blacksmith.
link
Claude
He used his skills to forge countless sacred weapons for the army of Seiros.
link
Claude
Of course, he didn't just forge the weapons. He also used them in battle himself. Legends say his strength was second only to Seiros.
link
Claude
It's even said that he played a big role in the Battle of Tailtean, where Seiros fought Nemesis, the King of Liberation who became the king of evil.
link
Claude
Macuil lost his life in that battle, and now his body rests in a coffin within the Holy Mausoleum.
link
Claude
Or so one story goes. Another legend says he set off on a journey to find a new land.
link
Claude
That he left Fódlan from the east, crossed the sea, and vanished.
link
Claude
He must have left Alliance territory, but where exactly would he have set sail from, I wonder?
link
Claude
Thinking about it reminds me of another interesting story concerning the Sreng Region.
link
Claude
The peninsula is attached to the mainland of Fódlan and extends from the northeastern part of Kingdom territory.
link
Claude
If you were to set sail from Margrave Edmund's territory, you could cut cross a stretch of sea and land there.
link
Claude
And it just so happens that in the Sreng Region, there are ruins built to worship a sacred beast that appeared from across the sea.
link
Claude
If the ruins have something to do with Saint Macuil, there could be sacred weapons there...
link
Claude
So? Have I piqued your interest or what?
link
Claude
You always have to play it cool, don't you? Just think of how useful it would be to have weapons like that!
link
Claude
Not to mention that the peninsula would be pretty easy to get to about now, seeing as how Alliance territory has settled down a bit.
link
Claude
We'd be there and back in no time. No one would even notice we were gone. Come on, Teach! Let's go to the Sreng Region!
link
Claude
I always see it through once I set my mind on something. Let's make the necessary preparations before I die of curiosity.
link
Claude
I guess I can wait...just a while. But make sure you decide before I die of curiosity, OK?
