Byleth, Claude, Catherine enter the scene

Claude
It really is an honor to accompany Catherine, wielder of Thunderbrand. I hear you're intimidating enough to silence the howling winds!
link
Catherine
You mean you don't know? My weapon is called Thunderbrand. It's one of the Heroes' Relics.
link
Catherine
A long, long time ago, the goddess bestowed divine weapons upon 10 heroes, which were passed down to their descendants.
link
Catherine
It's an honor to wield, but I'm afraid there won't be any chance for that today. Our mission is to help clean up the aftermath, not to fight.

Claude
Why would Lord Lonato incite such a reckless rebellion? He had to have known he had no chance of winning.
link
Catherine
It all goes back to the Tragedy of Duscur...
link
Claude
You must be joking. Where have you been traveling that news of it didn't reach you?
link
Claude
It happened about four years ago. The king of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus was murdered by the people of Duscur. That about covers it, right?
link
Catherine
To put it simply, yes. But there's more to that story. They had accomplices within the Kingdom as well.
link
Catherine
Lord Lonato's son, Christophe, was one of them, and so he was handed over to the church for execution.
link
Catherine
Speaking from the church's perspective, we simply passed judgment according to our doctrine in place of the Kingdom, which was in complete chaos.
link
Catherine
King Lambert was attempting a major political reform. Needless to say, he had many enemies.
link
Catherine
Whatever the truth behind that incident may be, Lord Lonato has harbored resentment toward the church ever since.
link
Catherine
Well... To be more specific, his grudge isn't only against the church. It's also against the one who turned Christophe over to them...

Church Soldier enters the scene

Church Soldier
Report! The enemy is approaching! They can't be avoided.
link
Church Soldier
Their numbers are far greater than we predicted. They used the fog to slip past the knights' perimeter!

Catherine
It looks like our mission just changed, Professor. Everyone, prepare for battle!
