Hilda enters the scene
link
Balthus
That crumbly old chapel somewhere nearby or what?
link
Constance
I can play little part here, save perhaps as a bargaining chip for our dear Aelfric...
link
Ashe
Getting yourself captured instead? That wouldn't be good at all, Constance!
link
Hapi
I think we should be more worried about B's... appearance. I mean, he's got way, WAY more, uh...life experience than the rest of us.
link
Hapi
And all that life experience makes you look more like a knight than a student, B.
link
Balthus
You saying I'm old, pal? Don't forget you're speaking to the Ageless King of Grappling.
link
Hilda
She's not wrong, Baltie. There's a pretty big age gap between you two.
link
Edelgard
You're friends with Hilda's older brother, right? That explains your...maturity. You make Hubert look like a spring chicken.
link
Balthus
Can it, will ya? Anyway, I'm wearing a school uniform. No way in hell they'll think I'm a knight.
link
Yuri
Yeah, and anyone wearing a school uniform is without a doubt a student.
link
Ashe
To be honest, for a good while, I actually did think you might be a knight...
link
Ashe
Who made your uniforms and set up the Ashen Wolf House, anyhow?
link
Constance
If I might so humbly interject, that would be Aelfric.
link
Yuri
He pulled everything together for us...some time after he was appointed as the guardian of Abyss.
link
Yuri
Said he wanted to give former students who were expelled from the academy somewhere to live. Somewhere to belong.
link
Yuri
Of course, all of this was established long before any of us were in the picture.
link
Ashe
It does. Whatever his aims, it seems he has quite a few noble qualities.
link
Edelgard
Perhaps. After hearing all of that, it's not as unbelievable as I'd thought.
link
Hapi
All I know is that he helped me, so I'll help him.
link
Constance
I strongly doubt that I shall factor into Aelfric's retrieval, but I shall follow your lead.
link
Balthus
There it is. We owe Aelfric. Maybe your goddess doesn't care about debts, but my fists and I sure do.
link
Yuri
Sorry to have roped you into all this, friend.
link
Yuri
We owe you. Just stick with us a bit longer, won't you?
link
Balthus
What a pal! The Ashen Wolves really landed an A+ professor. Not just on paper, but in practice too.
link
Balthus
This is great! Has me ready to get to it and start hitting things.

Claude, Edelgard, Dimitri leave the scene

Balthus, Hilda, Hapi leave the scene

Constance, Linhardt, Ashe leave the scene

Yuri
How cheeky. Me? Never. Although...
link
Yuri
Ever since I was a kid, I've lived my life by one rule—that I'd only play my hand if I was guaranteed victory.
link
Yuri
I've gotten this far by using my cunning in any way necessary—lying, cheating, even killing when there was no other way...
link
Yuri
But this next play? Well, the odds don't exactly seem to be in my favor.
link
Yuri
Not unless you trust me enough to provide me with an ace...
link
Yuri
Heh. Never you mind, friend. Let's just go.
