Byleth, Claude enter the scene

Claude
Nice work, Teach. It's thanks to you that we successfully completed our mission.
link
Claude
As for Miklan... I wonder if he really believed he could wield a Relic.
link
Claude
I bet he just wanted to get his hands on it, even though he knew he couldn't use it.
link
Claude
Agreed. He probably just wanted to get his hands on it, even though he knew it was futile.
link
Claude
Though I'm sure he wasn't counting on turning into a monster like that...
link
Claude
I wonder if that monster represents another aspect of the Heroes' Relics. What a strange and terrifying power.

Tomas enters the scene
link
Tomas
Stories of misfortune have followed the Heroes' Relics since ancient times.
link
Claude
Tomas! You've caught me by surprise. That's not easy to do. Though I suppose I should've expected to see our librarian in his library.
link
Tomas
I am sorry to intrude. I simply heard you speaking of the Heroes' Relics. I can tell you more about them, if you'd like.
link
Tomas
The story goes that Nemesis was corrupted by evil because of the Sword of the Creator.
link
Tomas
Other Heroes also lost themselves by continuing to use the Relics...transforming into Black Beasts with twisted souls.
link
Tomas
There used to be a great many records regarding the dark history of the Relics.
link
Claude
Used to be?
link
Tomas
They have been destroyed, across all of Fódlan. Stripped from their shelves, including those that resided at this very library.
link
Claude
You make it sound like the church is covering up the truth.
link
Claude
But now that you mention it, Rhea was very specific about not wanting anyone to find out what happened at Conand Tower.
link
Claude
Hey, Tomas... Why are you telling us all this?
link
Tomas
It seemed like you were searching for answers about the Relics. What is a librarian if not a guide in the search for knowledge.
link
Tomas
And not only have you been searching, but you have been doing so through the night. I would suggest you stop before the knights notice.
link
Tomas
And that is enough meddling for today. Please excuse me.
link
Tomas leaves the scene
link
Claude
So I've been found out, have I? I suppose I do spend more time at the library than most students.
link
Claude
But I won't stop. I can't afford to.
link
What are you after?
link
Claude
Teach... You don't really expect me to tell you something so personal just like that, do you?
link
Claude
Though, I wouldn't mind sharing if you were to tell me some of your secrets in exchange...
link
Edelgard enters the scene
link
Edelgard
I can't let this exchange pass without comment... If you're sharing secrets, perhaps I can share one as well?
link
Claude
Are you sure you could survive that? I'd say you're the least likely to share secrets out of everyone at the academy.
link
Edelgard
Heh heh, coming from you, I'll take that as a compliment. After all, you're easily the student with the most secrets.
link
Claude
I'm afraid you overestimate me. My secrets don't amount to much. But back to Teach...
link
Edelgard
Don't try to change the subject, Claude. We're talking about secrets. Yours.
link
Edelgard
Who is your father? And why did you appear so suddenly, as if from nowhere?
link
Edelgard
Duke Riegan's eldest son died in an accident. Having tragically lost other family members as well, he was without an heir.
link
Edelgard
The Alliance would undoubtedly have been shaken if House Riegan had lost its position of leadership.
link
Edelgard
But then you showed up. Why did you return to House Riegan? What brought you to the monastery?

Claude
Oh boy. I'm trapped here. I have no choice but to surrender under your intimidating gazes.
link
Claude
Alas... To be surrounded by women as lovely as flowers, only to be pricked by their thorns.
link
Claude
My dream, in truth, is a selfless dream. But I require power to make it a reality.
link
Claude
When I learned about the power of my Crest, I knew I had a chance. So I'm chasing that dream. To the bitter end, if need be.
link
Claude
I came to this monastery because I thought I might find someone useful. Someone to help me on my path.
link
Claude
So, what do you think? If you promise to help me achieve my dream no matter what, I'll promise to tell you anything.
link
Edelgard
I have my own dream to tend to. I pray that yours does not interfere with mine.
link
Claude
What about you, Teach?

I see. Well, now isn't the time to discuss this. You are still my Teach, after all.
