The Battle of the Eagle and Lion is finally upon us! This is our chance to show off the results of your expert training, Professor.

Dimitri
Have Lady Rhea and Seteth really not filled you in? Well, if that's the case, I'm happy to explain.

Dimitri
Haha, I highly doubt that. If you don't mind, I'd be happy to explain.

Dimitri
The Battle of the Eagle and Lion takes place every year during the Wyvern Moon. It can best be described as a mock battle between the three houses.

Dedue
Much like the one we had during the Great Tree Moon. Do you remember, Professor?

It was certainly an unforgettable time. I've never seen anyone put away as much victory food as you did that night, Professor!

Dimitri
This battle will take place in Empire territory, at Gronder Field. In other words, far removed from the monastery.

Dimitri
It's a mock battle between the three houses. The house that defeats the most opponents wins.

Your Highness, if the rumors are true, I believe Professor Manuela and Professor Hanneman will not be joining us.
link
Dimitri
Ah, yes, right you are. Given recent events, Professor Manuela has opted to sit this one out.
link
Dimitri
Since she won't be present, Professor Hanneman has decided to skip this year as well.

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

Dimitri
Professor Manuela! Are you feeling better already?
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
Dedue
In that case, perhaps it is best that you sit this one out.
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!
