Edelgard
I appreciate your help back there. Your skill is beyond question.
link
Edelgard
You're clearly an experienced mercenary. And your father...that would be Jeralt, the Blade Breaker?
link
Edelgard
Former captain of the Knights of Seiros. Oft praised as the strongest knight to ever live. Have I missed anything?
link
Edelgard
You haven't heard of the Knights of Seiros? The most famous order of knights in all of Fódlan?

Edelgard
How curious. I'd wager the explanation for that is fascinating indeed.
link
Claude
Hey! You are coming with us to the monastery, right? Of course you are. I'd love to bend your ear as we travel.
link
Claude
Oh, I should mention that the three of us are students of the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery.
link
Claude
We were doing some training exercises when those bandits attacked. I definitely got the worst of it.
link
Edelgard
That would be because you ran off.
link
Claude
Too true! I was the first to make a strategic retreat.
link
Claude
Everything would have worked out if these two hadn't followed me and ruined everything.
link
Claude
Because of them, every single one of those bandits chased after us. Utterly ridiculous.
link
Dimitri
Ah, so that's what you were thinking, Claude. And here I thought you were acting as a decoy for the sake of us all.
link
Edelgard
His intentions were as clear as day. You will prove a lacking ruler if you cannot see the truth behind a person's words.
link
Dimitri
Hm. You will prove a lacking ruler yourself if you look for deceit behind every word and fail to trust those whom you rely on.
link
Claude
Oh, joy. A royal debate between Their Highnesses. I wonder how being completely predictable affects one's ability to wield power.
link
Claude
Personally, as the embodiment of distrust, I'd say your little exchange smacks of naiveté.
link
Edelgard
Me? Naive? Tell me, are you actually incapable of keeping quiet, or is your lack of self-awareness a condition of some sort?
link
Dimitri
In any case, forgive our digression. I must speak with you, if you can spare a moment.
link
Dimitri
The way you held your ground against the bandits' leader was captivating! You never lost control of the situation. It showed me I still have much to learn.
link
Edelgard
Your skill is precisely why I must ask you to consider lending your services to the Empire.
link
Edelgard
I might as well tell you now. I am no mere student. I am also the Adrestian Empire's—
link
Dimitri
Halt, Edelgard. Please allow me to finish my own proposition.
link
Dimitri
The Holy Kingdom of Faerghus is in dire need of exceptional individuals like yourself.
link
Dimitri
Please, do consider returning to the Kingdom with me.
link
Claude
Whoa, there! You two sure are hasty. Trying to recruit someone you just met. Tactless, really.
link
Claude
I was personally planning to develop a deep and lasting friendship on our journey back to the monastery before begging for favors.
link
Claude
But it seems there's no time for niceties in this world. So, capable stranger, let's get right to it. Where does your allegiance lie?
link
Sothis
Hmm. It seems one's place of birth is quite significant to them. Yet they are so impressed by you, that you may take your pick. Well?

link
Edelgard
A wise choice. Though the Empire has fallen from its former glory, the other regions are merely offshoots that pale in comparison.
link

link
Dimitri
Understood. Faerghus is a noble and distinguished kingdom that has always valued chivalry.
link

link
Claude
Is that right? Well, that's a win for the Alliance, so I suppose I'm obligated to be happy.

All right, that's enough with the small talk. It's time to head back to the monastery!

Claude
Looks like we'll have to pick this up another time.

My, my. They are in such a hurry. You know... Each of the three is most unique...
