It's finally time! The Battle of the Eagle and Lion at Gronder Field is this month. Don't tell me you forgot, Teach?

You're kidding! Come on, Teach, I need you to keep it together for me. Don't lose focus when it counts.

Claude
You're kidding! Didn't Rhea or Seteth fill you in? Guess I have to do everything myself around here.

The Battle of the Eagle and Lion is one of the academy's annual traditions. It's a huge mock battle between the three rival houses.

Hilda
But you know all about rivalry battles, Professor. There was one right after you got here, remember?

Hilda
I hear the Battle of the Eagle and Lion will be held in Gronder Field, far away from Garreg Mach.

Claude
The house that defeats the most opponents wins. It's a three-way battle that relies heavily on strategy. Sounds exciting, doesn't it?

Hilda
Hey, Claude, what about Professor Manuela? Do you think she'll be able to join us despite her injuries?
link
Claude
I'm afraid she's sitting this one out, as is Professor Hanneman.

Claude
"As my persistent rival will not be present, it only goes to follow that I must also sit out this year's battle. Now leave me be, Claude!"

Manuela
Oh, don't worry about us. You know you wanna see the kids in action.
link
Claude
If it isn't our own Professor Manuela! All things considered, you're looking well.
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
Hilda
Does that mean you really won't be joining us for the battle?
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!
