Professor, you already know about the Battle of the Eagle and Lion, correct?

Edelgard
I see. In that case, allow me to fill you in.

Well then. Allow me to fill you in.

It's a large-scale mock battle between the rival houses that takes place every year.
link
Hubert
Its scale is incomparable to the mock battle we fought during the Great Tree Moon.

Hubert
It will take place in the vast Gronder Field. That is in Empire territory to the southeast of Garreg Mach.

Edelgard
Whichever house defeats the most opponents wins.

Edelgard
Of course, the professors also fight alongside their respective houses.

Hubert
Well, usually. Professor Manuela is being prudent. She will not be participating this year.
link
Hubert
Since his long-time rival will be absent, Professor Hanneman has also declined.

Manuela
Oh, don't worry about us. You know you wanna see the kids in action.

Hubert
Are you feeling any better, Professor Manuela?
link
Manuela
Thanks to all of you. But I'd only be a burden out there. My students don't need to see me collapsed. Well, not on the battlefield, anyway.
link
Hanneman
Correct, we will not be participating. Regardless, do not expect victory to come easily. Or at all.
link
Manuela
Well put. We've spent the past few months pushing our students to their limits. You can see me in the infirmary after they destroy you.

Oh my, look at you. If you're as confident as all that, my students will walk all over you.

We have taught our students well. There is no need to hold back. Challenge them with everything you have!
