Byleth, Cyril enter the scene

Cyril
They aren't really trying to cross Fódlan's Throat.
link
Cyril
I'm not saying they're not serious, but fights like this one aren't really invasions.
link
Then what are they doing?
link
Cyril
They just start fights like this sometimes. It's so they can show off how strong they are.
link
Cyril
I think it's pretty dumb. I mean, people are getting killed! And why? So some guy can think he's tough?
link
Cyril
After every fight, they do a big feast, and everybody eats and dances and there's music...
link
Cyril
It's supposed to honor the dead, but I figure they just like to make noise.
link
Cyril
I think they're all idiots, but if I'm real honest, it wasn't the worst way to live life.
link
Feeling homesick?
link
Cyril
Nah, I'm where I belong now, and I don't really like Almyra.
link
Cyril
If they wanna show how tough they are, then they oughta look after kids who've lost their parents.

Hilda enters the scene
link
Hilda
Whew, I'm tired. Professor, Cyril, thanks for all your help.
link
Cyril
You get a chance to see your brother?
link
Hilda
I did. Though I think I'd be better off otherwise.
link
Hilda
He was horribly ill, for one thing. He looked so pale and haggard.
link
Hilda
Apparently he'd eaten a bad mushroom before the battle and it made him horribly sick. What an idiot.
link
Hilda
Anyway, when I told him we'd handled the Almyran situation, he was just gushing with praise.
link
Hilda
I tried telling him that it wasn't all me, but he didn't even listen.
link
Weren't you glad to get praise from your brother?
link
Hilda
That did feel pretty good, I'll admit. But then things got awkward.
link
Hilda
He started trying to pawn off his whole inheritance. I told him I wanted none of it!
link
Hilda
Eventually he settled for foisting this thing on me. Do you know what it is?
link
Cyril
One heck of an axe. He gave it to ya?
link
Hilda
Yes. It's a magic axe called Freikugel. It's the Hero's Relic of House Goneril.
link
Hilda
He said that I should have it, since the Crest I bear will allow me to wield it.
link
Hilda
He was so insistent, I eventually relented. But I don't think I can be responsible for something so precious.
link
Hilda
Hey, Professor... Why don't you take it instead?
link
Hilda
Heroes' Relics contain terrifying power. They're beyond the capabilities of a novice like me.
link
Hilda
You're the only person I trust to take care of it. Please, help me out here!
link
Hilda
Thank you so much! I honestly didn't know what I was going to do with this thing!
link
Hilda
A big scary axe is not my style.
link
Hilda
Plus, look closely—parts of the axe are pulsating, like it's alive! How gross is that?
link
Hilda
But I'll use it if you tell me to, Professor. Or you can get somebody else to wield it, if you like.
link
Hilda
It's all up to you now!

Hilda leaves the scene

Cyril
That Hilda... She really is something.
