Byleth, Rhea enter the scene

Rhea
It is finished.
link
Rhea
Well done, everyone. Because of you, her restless soul has finally found peace.
link
Rhea
Professor... I imagine you have much on your mind.
link
My mother...
link
Rhea
I was there the day she brought you forth into this world.
link
Rhea
Sitri had always been frail. Giving birth proved to be too much for her in the end...
link
Rhea
On that fated day, it looked as though neither of you would survive.
link
Rhea
In those final moments, she spoke, saying, "My heart... Give it to my child."
link
Rhea
That is correct. The heart that lies within your chest is none other than hers.
link
Rhea
It was the only way that you could be saved.
link
Rhea
But Sitri loved others, much as a human might—and I loved her in return.
link
But why wasn't she buried?
link
Rhea
Sitri looked upon me as though I was her mother, and I wished for her to have a bright future...
link
Rhea
I would not have her buried in the cold, dark soil.
link
Rhea
Prior to her funeral, I arranged for a fake burial. Afterward, I brought her body to Abyss, where I would sometimes visit her.
link
Rhea
I never thought that anyone—especially Aelfric— would find her. I did not expect for such a tragedy to ensue...
link
Byleth, Rhea leave the scene
link
Yuri, Balthus, Constance, Hapi enter the scene
link
Balthus
Boss, there's something you gotta tell me.
link
Balthus
Was Aelfric really just using us all that time?
link
Yuri
How should I know? I mean, he always acted that way around me—like we were a means to an end.
link
Yuri
But the church records indicate he founded the Ashen Wolf House 15 years ago.
link
Yuri
He mentioned he found Sitri 10 years ago, so it seems he really did mean well, at first...
link
Hapi
What's done is done. He's gone, and we're here. That's what matters now.
link
Constance
You're always so quick to adapt to change, Hapi. I should follow your example.
link
Yuri
Heh, yeah, you always get to the heart of things quickly. Right, then. I've got a lot to take care of now.
link
Yuri
I need to fill the church in on all the details about how things actually played out.
link
Yuri
And with my people freed from the monastery prison, they'll need to be accounted for.
link
Hapi
Good luck with that whole mess. I'll be rooting for you from afar.
link
Constance
Surely you'll let us know if there is any way at all we can help. We'd be just thrilled.
link
Balthus
Hell, if you want, your people can be my people. I could use some good mercenaries to watch my back.
link
Yuri
Enough already. I get it.
link
Hapi
It's no less than you deserve.
link
Constance
What you have sown, now you shall reap!
link
Balthus
You made your bed, now shut up about it, pal.
link
Hapi
Heh... Anyway, what do you figure will happen to Abyss? The church will want to step in, no doubt.
link
Yuri
You got me. After everything that's happened, things can't stay the same.
link
Yuri
The church will probably assign an official to oversee things. Hopefully whoever they choose knows how to get along with Abyssians well.
link
Balthus
Let's worry about all that some other time, yeah? I could really use a tall drink and a long sleep.
link
Hapi
I'm with you. I hurt in places I didn't even know could hurt.
link
Constance
It has been a terribly long night, indeed. One I won't ever forget.
link
Yuri
A terribly long night, but a beautiful morning, haha.
