Shamir, Alois enter the scene

Shamir
...And that is our situation.

Alois
But with so few knights, we'll surely—

Byleth enters the scene
link
Alois
Ah, Professor! Excellent timing.
link
What's going on?
link
Shamir
Alois. You're not going to suggest we send students, are you?
link
Alois
I am, actually. Do you have a problem with that?
link
Shamir
I do. We can't send them out on a knight's mission without Rhea's blessing.
link
Alois
I'm sure I can get the go-ahead. I'll just say the students have a...new field training opportunity, or something like that.
link
Alois
Besides, we'll be there. We're not going to let them get killed by pirates.
link
Shamir
There are pirates causing havoc in the port of Derdriu, at the center of House Riegan's territory.
link
Alois
The Merchants' Association sent a request via the Eastern Church, asking for protection.
link
The Eastern Church?
link
Shamir
You haven't heard of the Eastern Church? I suppose that's because they don't have much of a presence.
link
Alois
The Eastern Church controls eastern Fódlan. They don't have a standing army like we do.
link
Alois
So, for incidents like this, they customarily ask for help from the Central Church.
link
Shamir
I imagine they want to contribute to make their presence known in the Alliance.
link
Alois
Be that as it may, we knights are quite busy. We don't have personnel to spare.
link
Alois
Therefore, we're enlisting your help!
link
Shamir
You should have some experience dealing with pirates from your mercenary days, right?
link
Shamir
The students have dealt with pirates, so this shouldn't be a problem for them.
link
Alois
Come with us, won't you? Think of it as a training exercise. The Merchants' Association will reward us handsomely!
link
Shamir
We don't have time to lose. Let's take care of this quickly.
link
Alois
We're not leaving right away. Think on it.

Shamir
If you wish to join us, let me know.
