Caspar
Damn it! It was all so pointless. I've never seen so many people utterly heartbroken...
link
Ferdinand
Forcing innocent citizens to risk their lives... That man was not a noble, but a monster.
link
Hubert
What could have pushed Lord Lonato to this point?

Byleth, Edelgard enter the scene

Edelgard
Everyone was a bit shaken by the militia fighting alongside our enemies.
link
Edelgard
If only everyone could face reality so unflinchingly.
link
Edelgard
The commoners who allied themselves with Lord Lonato believed they were fighting for a just cause.
link
Edelgard
It would be disrespectful to consider them simply victims when they died for what they believed in.
link
Edelgard
Still, we have no choice but to eliminate those who cling to unreasonable ideas of justice.
link
Edelgard
Even if our enemies are the gods themselves... we must never lose sight of our goal.
link
Edelgard
Is it? Such a day may come, whether you expect it or not. You should be ready.

Edelgard
I'm surprised to hear you say that.
link
Edelgard
Really, I'm just like Lonato. I, too, will be the sort of ruler who's willing to risk the lives of my citizens in service of a higher cause.
link
Edelgard
It's not possible to change the world without sacrifice. Dying for the greater good is not a death in vain.

Catherine
Professor... I'm afraid this incident is far more serious than anticipated.

Catherine
I found this on Lord Lonato. It's a note that mentions a plan to assassinate Lady Rhea.
link
Catherine
We can't tell who sent it, so the source is suspect, but the content is too disturbing to ignore.
link
Catherine
We must report this to Lady Rhea right away. I hope that it's nothing...
