As all of you have committed a breach of faith, the archbishop will now pass judgment.
link
Shamir
Inciting a Kingdom noble to rebel. Unlawful entry. The attempted assassination of the archbishop. An attack on the Holy Mausoleum.
link
Shamir
It is unnecessary to go on, followers of the Western Church.
link
Priest
What?! We have nothing to do with the Western Church!
link
Seteth
You have already been identified. Please spare us your second-rate theater.
link
Rhea
Dishonoring a holy ceremony is worthy of death for a member of the church.
link
Rhea
You are well past the hope of redemption. If you have any grace remaining, you will willingly offer your life as atonement for this crime.
link
Priest
No! This isn't what we were told would happen! We've been deceived!
link
Shamir
It's no use arguing. Whatever your excuse, the punishment stands.
link
Rhea
May your souls find peace as they return to the goddess...
link
Priest
Wait! Please! The goddess would never forgive you for our execution!
link
Priest
Monster! We know you've already slaughtered many of our fellow brethren like this!
link
Rhea
This concludes the investigation. Please remove these poor, lost souls from my sight.

Priest, Priest leave the scene

Claude enters the scene

Claude
I suppose that's that. The assassination attempt, the attack on the Holy Mausoleum... Looks like it was all a plot by the Western Church.
link
Claude
It's just too bad that that masked knight who was leading the attack got away. Vanished without a trace.
link
Hilda
But why would the Western Church want to attack Lady Rhea?
link
Claude
Why? Take your pick of reasons. Relations with the Western Church aren't exactly friendly.
link
Claude
Oh, that's right. Jeralt mentioned that you grew up completely isolated from the church.
link
Claude
The Church of Seiros is split into a few different branches across Fódlan.
link
Claude
The Central Church is headquartered right here at Garreg Mach.
link
Claude
Then there's the Western Church. Far west from Castle Gaspard, where Lord Lonato had his little rebellion, is the Fortress City of Arianrhod.
link
Claude
It's the strongest fortress in the Kingdom. On the other side of it is the headquarters of the Western Church.
link
Hilda
Not too smart to bicker with people who worship the same goddess as you.
link
Claude
The bishop of the Western Church must be pretty ambitious. Probably hopes to split off completely.
link
Claude
In which case, he'd need to weaken the Central Church's influence. Killing Rhea is certainly one way to do that.
link
Claude
To the shock of no one, I hear the knights have been sent to subdue the leaders of the Western Church.
link
Claude
We'll probably get a chance to assist.
link
Hilda
You're an odd one, aren't you, Professor? How'd you make it this far in life without ever interacting with the church?
link
Hilda
I can't believe someone like you exists in Fódlan. It's too strange!
link
Claude
If you think that's weird, consider the fact that Rhea hired Teach despite all that.
link
Raphael
So, those guys they caught... They all got the axe, right? That's brutal.
link
Lysithea
Lady Rhea can be rather intimidating at times. In fact...she can be downright terrifying.
link
Marianne
Professor. Those who cannot be saved must be delivered to the goddess for judgment. Is that not so?
link
Seteth enters the scene

Seteth
There you are, Professor. It seems Lady Rhea would like a word with you. Come with me.
