Byleth enters the scene

Dedue
Oh—it's you, Professor.
link
Dedue
Since you are here, I have a favor to ask.
link
Dimitri enters the scene
link
Dedue
Your Highness. You've returned.
link
Dimitri
Sorry to keep you waiting, Dedue.
link
Dimitri
I'm glad you're here as well, Professor. I want you both to hear this.
link
Dimitri
Dedue is already aware, but you should know there's been an uprising in the Duscur region, in the western part of the Kingdom.
link
An uprising in Duscur? Why?
link
Dimitri
Dedue... Would you like me to explain?
link
Dedue
No. It should be me.
link
Dedue
I am from Duscur. It lies just beyond the mountains on the northwestern border of Faerghus.
link
Dedue
You are, of course, aware of what transpired there.
link
Dedue
But the people of Duscur no longer live there.
link
Dedue
The land was burned to ashes by the army of Faerghus. All of the people were slaughtered.
link
Dedue
This was our punishment for the crime of regicide.
link
Dedue
The barren expanse that was once Duscur is now controlled by a Kingdom noble.
link
Dedue
But Duscur survivors, such as myself, still exist outside the region.
link
Dedue
This uprising is most likely the work of such survivors, seeking to reclaim their homeland.
link
Dimitri
A request for aid was sent from Viscount Kleiman to the Kingdom capital and the church. He is the one who rules over that region at present.
link
Dimitri
For now, the lords surrounding the Duscur region have sent their armies to help suppress the uprising. However...
link
Dimitri
They have sufficient troops, and strong ones at that. My worry is that there will be more unwarranted death.
link
Dimitri
There have always been many in the Kingdom's army who believe the people of Duscur our foes, and hate them because of it.
link
Dimitri
You would think they'd refrain from squashing the rebels out of political expediency...but I doubt that will be the case.
link
Dimitri
If the Kingdom's army and the rebel forces of Duscur collide, there is no doubt that the rebel forces will be annihilated.
link
Dimitri
I'm afraid...that's the best case scenario. It could also turn into complete and bloody chaos for both sides.
link
Dedue
Indeed.
link
Dimitri
Which brings me to my news. I have just now received the permission I requested from the church.
link
Permission for what?
link
Dimitri
I asked the church to deploy our class to help handle the situation.
link
Dedue
So we may go?
link
Dimitri
Not so fast. We still have a responsibility as students of the academy, after all.
link
Dimitri
The only one who can truly make the decision as to whether or not we go is our professor. So... What do you say?
link
Dedue
You have my most sincere gratitude.
link
Dimitri
And mine as well. But we must move fast. I will go and alert the others.
link
Dimitri
I know this was sudden, but given the situation, I'm afraid there isn't much time to ponder.
link
Dimitri
When you've decided, please speak with me right away.
link
Dedue
Please, decide quickly.
