Byleth, Rhea, Seteth enter the scene

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.

Claude enters the scene
link
Byleth enters the scene
link
Claude
Hey, Teach. I gotta say, I never would've guessed you were a descendant of the King of Liberation.
link
Claude
You didn't forget, did you? That story I told you about a Relic that could cut a mountain in half?
link
Claude
That Relic was the Sword of the Creator! The very same used by Nemesis, the King of Liberation.
link
Claude
Don't be coy, Teach. The Sword of the Creator could only be wielded by Nemesis.
link
Claude
If you can use it too, that can only mean you have that bloodline's Crest.
link
I don't understand.
link
Claude
Fine, keep your secrets. But just so you know, "I don't understand" isn't gonna cut it here at the monastery.
link
Claude
Speaking of, Professor Hanneman has been looking for you.
link
Claude
He probably wants to examine your Crest with those crazy instruments of his. Actually...sounds amusing. Maybe I'll tag along.
link
Judith enters the scene
link
Judith
If it isn't my little Claude! What has you so worked up?
link
Claude
Judith?! What are you doing here?
link
Judith
That's Lady Judith to you, boy. I told you, until you're in charge, I expect you to address me with all due respect.
link
Judith
Anyway, I'm here to retrieve you. Duke Riegan's condition has taken a turn for the worse.
link
Claude
Are you saying the old man's on his death bed?
link
Judith
No, it's not that bad. But in the state he's in, he won't be able to participate in the next roundtable conference.
link
Judith
He wants you to go in his stead. I volunteered to play the messenger.
link
Claude
Well, thanks for that. Oh, and Teach, this is Judith. Also known as the Hero of House Daphnel.
link
Judith
So you're little Claude's teacher, are you? How much trouble has he been giving you?
link
Claude
If her nickname didn't give it away, you should know that Judith...er, Lady Judith is the leader of the famous House Daphnel of the Leicester Alliance.
link
Claude
She used to be a big deal at the roundtable conferences, but it seems of late she's been reduced to a mere—
link
Judith
You had better shut that mouth before I put my boot in it, you tactless nuisance! Now come on. Let's get going.
link
Judith
Sorry, Professor, but I need to borrow the boy for a bit.
link
Claude
I suppose we'll have to finish our chat later. Sorry, Teach.
link
Claude
But don't you worry. I'll be back in time for our next mission. All right, Judith. Let's get going.
link
Claude leaves the scene
link
Judith
It's Lady... Ah, I suppose you are the active leader for the time being. Fair enough, boy. Fair enough.
link
Judith leaves the scene

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.
