Byleth, Rhea, Seteth enter the scene
link
Rhea
I cannot thank you enough for defeating those invaders in the Holy Mausoleum, and especially for protecting the Sword of the Creator.
link
Rhea
That sword is one of the Heroes' Relics, and the most precious artifact in the church's possession.
link
Rhea
It is also a weapon of terrifying power.
link
Rhea
For now...I will entrust the sword to you. Please, use it wisely.
link
Seteth
Lady Rhea, wait! Do you truly mean to give the Sword of the Creator to this stranger?!
link
Seteth
Surely it is not the sort of thing one hands over so readily, even to someone who has the ability to wield it!
link
Seteth
If someone like Nemesis were to appear again, all of Fódlan would be consumed by war!
link
Nemesis?
link
Seteth
Nemesis, the King of Liberation. He is an ancient king of mankind who was defeated by Seiros over a thousand years ago.
link
Seteth
When Fódlan was attacked by wicked gods, it is said that the goddess gifted Nemesis with the Sword of the Creator.
link
Seteth
Nemesis used that sword to defeat the wicked gods, saving all of Fódlan. Henceforth he was dubbed the King of Liberation.
link
Seteth
However, his power began to corrupt him until he, himself, turned to the darkness. Saint Seiros was forced to destroy him.
link
Seteth
Lady Rhea, I beg you to reconsider. Given a little more time, we could more accurately assess this stranger's abilities.
link
Rhea
No. I have faith, Seteth. Faith that our friend here will not be corrupted by wickedness.
link
Rhea
Since the death of Nemesis, none have been able to wield the Sword of the Creator.
link
Rhea
Now, after all those long years of being sealed away, it has returned and found a new master.
link
Seteth
I...understand. As you wish, Lady Rhea.
link
Seteth
There you have it, Professor. See that you do not betray the trust the archbishop has seen fit to bestow upon you.

Byleth enters the scene
link
Sothis
The Sword of the Creator. The King of Liberation. Each tale is more confusing than the last!
link
Sothis
And I really can't read that Rhea at all...
link
Sothis
That sword is clearly precious... So why is she so keen to gift the thing to you?
link
Sothis
I feel as though we have become entangled in a mystery...
link
Sothis
And there is one more thing that has been plaguing me.
link
Sothis
The Sword of the Creator... It somehow feels distinct from other Relics we have seen.
link
Sothis
Such as the one that... Oh goodness, what was her name? Ca... Cat...
link
Sothis
Yes! Her! The Sword of the Creator is different from her Thunderbrand in one key way.
link
Sothis
What is wrong with that head of yours? Of course it's not a cat!
link
Sothis
Her name is Catherine. The Sword of the Creator differs from her Thunderbrand in one key way.
link
Sothis
It bears a hole...where something should have been, but is no more.
link
Sothis
I despise not knowing what is going on! It...it frightens me. And yet... I place my trust in you. I must.
link
Sothis
Whatever comes to pass...please swear to cut a path that is your own.
link
Byleth leaves the scene

Claude enters the scene
link
Claude
The Sword of the Creator... Pulled right from the legends.
link
Claude
I finally found it, and yet it ended up in Teach's hands.
link
Claude
Could I even use it anyway? Damn it. There's no telling what's to come...
