Aelfric
Professor. You would raise your sword against me?
link
Aelfric
Your mother lies here, waiting for us. Waiting for you! Don't you want her back?
link
Claude
Teach, is that true, or is he just trying to freak us out? If so...it's kind of working.
link
Aelfric
There is no room for doubt. I know her appearance better than anyone. This...is her.
link
Aelfric
An upstanding nun who married Jeralt, she died 21 long years ago...
link
Dimitri
You cannot expect us to believe that someone who died two decades ago is still in such pristine condition...
link
Aelfric
Incredible, isn't it? It's as though she remains untouched, even after all these years...
link
Aelfric
Perhaps her body differs from others. Beautiful, ageless—perfectly preserved by some secret only she knows.
link
Aelfric
Whatever the case may be, it is strange, is it not?
link
Aelfric
It's been 10 long years since I found her. I came across her body, frozen in time, deep underground.
link
Aelfric
I have worked tirelessly to solve the riddle of her death and bring her back to life.
link
Rhea, Alois enter the scene
link
Rhea
Halt, Aelfric.
link
Aelfric
Rhea!
link
Aelfric
You are the cause of this! It was you who killed her! When she gave birth to a child who made no sound.
link
Aelfric
Tell me what you've done to her! Why does her body remain while her spirit does not?!
link
Rhea
I owe you no words on the matter. But I will tell you this...
link
Rhea
She made the choice to die, that her offspring might live.
link
Rhea
I respected her will. Nothing more.
link
Rhea
Aelfric. Just as I viewed her, so do I view you.
link
Rhea
You are as my own child. Please, cease this futility.
link
Aelfric
You expect that I should believe you without question?!
link
Aelfric
You see her lying here before you, and yet you "owe no words."
link
Aelfric
Rhea, I am finished with you. The only thing that remains to be done is to complete the ritual.
link
Aelfric leaves the scene
link
Rhea
Hurry! He cannot have gone far.
link
Let's end this.
link
Edelgard
Yes, we must stop him at once. Let's figure out where he disappeared to.
link
Dimitri
What about you four? You don't look like you're up for much of anything right now.
link
Yuri
It'll take a lot more than that to stop me. If anything, I feel speedier with less blood weighing me down.
link
Balthus
Probably for the best that he drained us, otherwise our blood would be boiling.
link
Constance
Ugh, speak for yourselves. I feel atrocious.
link
Constance
We must end this, and swiftly.
link
Hapi
Count me in.
link
Balthus
Then we're all on the same page. But first things first... Let me see that pretty face of yours, Boss.
link
Yuri
Hm?
link
Yuri
Agh!
link
Balthus
Why the hell didn't you tell us?
link
Yuri
I'm sorry I had to use you all. But there wasn't much choice—someone would've died for sure otherwise.
link
Yuri
It could've been any of you. It could've been one of my rogues, someone from Abyss... Who knows.
link
Constance
You imply that you didn't trust us enough! I am incensed by you, Yuri.
link
Hapi
Use me or don't, but it would've been nice if you'd asked us first.
link
Balthus
Look, I get it. Your people were being held hostage. You were between a rock and a hard place.
link
Balthus
But I thought we were pals. Buddies till the end.
link
Yuri
I...
link
Yuri
I need you...all of you. I've been a fool. Thank you for always being here for me. Even now.
link
Balthus
All right, I think this fool gets the picture. Time to find that other fool and take him down!
link
Balthus
You'll help with that, yeah?
link
Obviously.
link
Yuri
Haha! I love the lip on this one. Let's do this, Wolves.
