Caspar enters the scene

Caspar
Professor! Mercedes! What are you two doing here?
link
Mercedes
Um, we were just talking. Why do you look so flustered?
link
Caspar
Haven't you heard? An Imperial army was spotted near Garreg Mach!
link
Mercedes
Oh. Do you think they came to scout?
link
Caspar
Maybe? We could probably take care of 'em if that's the case...
link
Caspar
But I heard the Death Knight is out there!
link
Mercedes
The Death Knight...
link
Caspar
Don't you remember? He's the guy who abducted Flayn!
link
Caspar
We fought him a bunch of times after that! Right, Mercedes? Oh. Is something the matter?
link
Mercedes
N-no. It's nothing. Really...
link
Mercedes
Now's probably not the time, but I was just thinking of my brother.
link
Caspar
You have a brother?
link
Mercedes
Yes, but we have different fathers. He was a year younger than me.
link
Caspar
Why'd he suddenly come to mind?
link
Mercedes
You see—

Knight of Seiros enters the scene

Knight of Seiros
Quickly! You must prepare for battle!
link
Knight of Seiros
The Death Knight has been spotted in the Sealed Forest!
link
Knight of Seiros
He only has a few troops with him, so we planned on taking him out with just the knights, but...
link
Knight of Seiros
We can't guarantee that reinforcements won't arrive. We would appreciate your backup, just in case.
link
Knight of Seiros leaves the scene
link
Mercedes
The Death Knight... I have to go...
link
Caspar
Mercedes, wait! I don't know what's going on with you, but...
link
Mercedes
No! I have to go see him!
link
Caspar
Yeah, we can't let him get away! I'll help Mercedes find the Death Knight!
link
Caspar
You go gather the others and meet up with us, Professor!
link
Caspar
We don't really have time to sit around and think, but a little prep can't hurt against the Death Knight.
link
Mercedes
Yes... You two are right...
link
Caspar
Let me know when you're ready. Try not to take too long though, all right?
link
Caspar
It's not like the Death Knight is just gonna wander around the forest waiting for us to find him.
