Byleth enters the scene

Balthus
Wow. An underground arena, huh? You sure know some great spots, Yuri.
link
Yuri
I heard about this place from someone back in town. It hasn't been in use for a long time.
link
Yuri
I figured it could prove useful, so I spent some time clearing out the debris that was blocking the entrance.
link
Dimitri
It seems to be a revitalized ruin... Perhaps it was originally a reception hall or something similar.
link
Edelgard
Perhaps. Honestly, all of Abyss feels like a ruin.
link
Constance
Ahaha! This place is magnificent! It is just spacious enough to contain my glory! I shall not hold back here!
link
Hapi
Large. Isolated. I wonder if it would be OK for me to sigh here...
link
Sigh?
link
Balthus
If Hapi sighs, monsters come running. No, I'm not kidding.
link
Edelgard
I'm not sure what you could possibly mean by that...
link
Yuri
I wish, Hapi, but no. Absolutely no sighing. And, Constance, be glorious in moderation.
link
Yuri
Understood? This place is so big that if it collapses, all of Abyss will fall with it.
link
Yuri
The whole reason we're luring our enemies here is to avoid damaging Abyss. Don't lose sight of that.
link
Constance
I am well aware of our aim!
link
Balthus
Sure, but that doesn't mean we can trust you to show restraint.
link
Constance
You as well?! I cannot fathom why I am being treated in such a way.
link
Constance
It is the duty of the nobility to preserve the people's safety.
link
Constance
Do you truly believe that I would destroy Abyss in my efforts to save it? Preposterous!
link
Hapi
That would cause trouble for Elfie too.
link
Hapi
If the underground collapses, he's the one who will have to answer for it.
link
Who is Elfie?
link
Balthus
You must know Aelfric, yeah? He's a big wig in the church, but a friend of Abyss.
link
Balthus
He's the one who opened up this place to folks with nowhere else to turn. Folks like us. He gave us a home, a new life.
link
Constance
It is Aelfric himself who put forth the idea of establishing the Ashen Wolf House.
link
Constance
Sadly, he faces opposition within the church, and so he cannot openly deploy the knights to aid us.
link
Yuri
That means Aelfric relies upon us to protect the people who live here. Us...and now you.
link
Yuri
I hope you're ready, Professor. We're counting on you.
link
Constance
You are a professor at the Officers Academy, are you not?
link
Constance
You may not be our instructor, but I cannot think of a more fitting title to call you.
link
Hapi
Seems like you're with us now. We'll owe you one.
link
Hapi
Reliable, aren't you? We'll owe you one.
link
Balthus
Time to knock some sense into their thick skulls. They picked the wrong strangers to mess with!
