Byleth, Raphael enter the scene

Raphael
So basically we just gotta defeat their leader, right?
link
Raphael
Then why don't we approach from...ugh! That won't work at all! Horses won't fit through there!
link
Raphael
I can't figure this out! I give up.
link
Raphael
But enemies never move how you want them to in a real battle, do they?
link
Raphael
I reckon I'd learn better on the battlefield.

Ignatz enters the scene
link
Ignatz
Professor! I need to speak with you.
link
Raphael
Ignatz? You all right?
link
Ignatz
I received a letter from my brother back home. There's some disturbing news.
link
What's going on?
link
Ignatz
Monsters have been attacking merchants within the Alliance territories.
link
Raphael
That happens all the time.
link
Raphael
I mean, that's how my parents died, so...
link
Ignatz
Ah, Raphael! I didn't mean to bring up such a sensitive topic in your presence.
link
Raphael
Hey, don't worry about that. C'mon, let's hear the rest of it.
link
Ignatz
Very well. These attacks seem to be focused on specific merchants.
link
Like who?
link
Ignatz
Those who are traveling from the territory of House Gloucester to the Riegan Dukedom.
link
Ignatz
Merchants traveling in the opposite direction, from Riegan to Gloucester, don't suffer nearly as many attacks.
link
Raphael
That doesn't make any sense. Someone's gotta deal with those monsters though.
link
Ignatz
Agreed. At this rate, my father and brother can't conduct business without risking their lives.
link
Ignatz
Professor, could you assist me? I need your help exterminating these creatures.
link
Raphael
Now you're talking! I'm going too! I'm not learning anything in a classroom!
link
Raphael
You're gonna go, right, Professor? Don't you wanna help these folks?
link
Raphael
Yeah! I knew you couldn't resist!
link
Ignatz
Thank you so much, Professor! And Raphael, I can't begin to express my gratitude.
link
Raphael
Seriously? Can't you see how important this is to Ignatz?
link
Ignatz
Ah, no, that's perfectly understandable. I'm sure the professor has much to do. But let me know if you change your mind, would you?
link
Ignatz
If you can't come, I'll try asking some of the knights.
