Rhea
I have a new mission for you, Professor.
link
Rhea
I would like for you to take your students into Kingdom territory to eliminate some thieves.
link
Seteth
They stole a Hero's Relic from House Gautier of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus—the Lance of Ruin.
link
Seteth
Their leader's name is Miklan. He is apparently a disowned son of House Gautier.
link
Seteth
I believe it had something to do with his lack of a Crest. Such happenings are fairly common within the Kingdom.
link
Rhea
The Crestless cannot unleash the goddess's power, even if they possess a Relic. Nonetheless, they are still capable of simply wielding those weapons.
link
Seteth
This skirmish involves a holy Relic, and is therefore more than a single noble is capable of resolving.
link
Seteth
The Heroes' Relics are immensely powerful weapons. We must meet this threat with adequate force.
link
Seteth
Unfortunately, most of the Knights of Seiros are away from the monastery purging the apostates of the Western Church.
link
Seteth
So we are entrusting you with this mission. After all, you wield the Sword of the Creator, which is more than capable of opposing any Relic.
link
Rhea
The Sword of the Creator is a powerful weapon, well beyond the other Relics. You have nothing to fear.
link
Rhea
However, to ensure that no harm comes to the students, we will also send the monastery's most skilled individuals to aid you.
link
Seteth
I must remind you that you are expected to conduct yourself in a manner befitting the wielder of that holy sword.
link
Seteth
Also, you should know that Professor Hanneman has been looking for you. That is all.

Dimitri
I heard about our mission for this month. So... We are to eradicate thieves in Kingdom territory.
link
Dimitri
I'm sorry for dragging you into the Kingdom's petty squabbles. This should not be your burden to bear, but my own...
link
Gain support points with Dimitri
link
Dimitri
Thank you, Professor. Hearing you say that puts my mind at ease.
link
Rodrigue enters the scene
link
Rodrigue
Your Highness? Ah, it's been ages!
link
Dimitri
It's been a long time! Two years, if I'm not mistaken.
link
Rodrigue
Indeed, Your Highness. You've grown so much in those years. I hardly recognize you.
link
Dimitri
Professor, this is Rodrigue. He's an old friend of my father's. Some of my earliest memories include this fellow.
link
Dimitri
This is Rodrigue, an old friend of my father's. I believe I've mentioned him, if you recall?
link
Dimitri
When my father died four years ago, he looked after me as though I were his own son.
link
Rodrigue
You flatter me, Your Highness. It was my honor to care for such a fine, young man.
link
Rodrigue
It's nice to finally meet you, Professor. My son, Felix, has mentioned you on occasion.
link
Dimitri
What brings you to the monastery, Rodrigue? Is it the thieves plaguing the Kingdom?
link
Rodrigue
I'm afraid so. This is not merely a problem for House Gautier, but for everyone.
link
Rodrigue
The thieves have set up their headquarters in Fraldarius territory, and are mercilessly pillaging the villages of that area.
link
Rodrigue
You have our full support in stopping those dastards. I thank you for your help, both of you.
link
Hanneman enters the scene
link
Byleth enters the scene
link
Hanneman
Good of you to come, Professor. I've heard much about you lately.
link
Hanneman
Specifically, that you were able to awaken the Sword of the Creator's power. Thusly, it seems the true nature of your Crest has been uncovered.
link
Hanneman
I had, of course, seen your Crest before. However, at first, I failed to recognize its true nature.
link
Hanneman
Eventually, it dawned on me that what is visible is perhaps merely a small part of a greater whole.
link
Hanneman
In other words, your Crest is too significant to be detected when using normal instruments.
link
Hanneman
After this discovery, I began researching Crests that might fit that description, which allowed for a temporary hypothesis.
link
Hanneman
However, I could not be certain. The Crest my conclusions led me to was far too unusual.
link
Hanneman
A Crest thought to have disappeared from this world in the millennium since the fall of Nemesis, the King of Liberation.
link
Hanneman
The Crest of Flames. That is what you possess.
link
The Crest of Flames...
link
Hanneman
Your ability to wield the Sword of the Creator has unequivocally proven my hypothesis.
link
Hanneman
A legendary power, dormant since time immemorial, and now resurrected...
link
Hanneman
There can be no doubt that this ancient power resides within you.
