Dimitri, Lord Arundel enter the scene

Dimitri
I see. So you'll be staying here for some time, then.
link
Dimitri
Honestly, I'm surprised. I've heard it's been a few years since you last donated to the church.
link
Lord Arundel
That was merely because of the financial situation of my territory. I assure you, it has nothing to do with my dedication to the church.
link
Lord Arundel
By the way, Dimitri... Isn't Edelgard currently enrolled at the Officers Academy as well?
link
Dimitri
Yes. She's in the Black Eagle House. I don't believe she has any plans to leave anytime soon. Why not pay her a visit?
link
Lord Arundel
I may do just that. It's nice to stay in touch with my dear niece every now and then.
link
Lord Arundel
Of course I'm also delighted that I was able to speak with my nephew, as well. Whether through marriage or otherwise, family is family, after all.
link
Dimitri
Of course. The feeling is mutual.

Dimitri
Professor... If you were watching, you should have made your presence known.
link
Who was that?
link
Dimitri
That was Lord Arundel, the Regent for the Empire. He is also Edelgard's uncle.
link
Dimitri
In a sense. We have spoken on several occasions, albeit many years ago.
link
Dimitri
My stepmother was his younger sister. We are not related by blood, but he is technically my uncle.

Dimitri
Yes. My stepmother was Edelgard's birth mother.
link
Dimitri
Edelgard and I are siblings by marriage.

Dimitri
We can delve into that topic another time. For now, let's make preparations to investigate what's happening in that village.

Oh dear. The princess of the Empire and the Kingdom's prince are kin! How very odd.

All beings are attached somehow to those who are their family. Yes...even I.
link
Sothis
I must have had a family too... I wish I could remember them.
link
Sothis
My family... I wonder who and where they are, and what they're doing now.
link
Sothis
They likely harbor knowledge they do not wish to share. Oh yes, I'm sure of it. But I suppose we must wait until the time of truth arrives...
link
Sothis
In any case... About this Arundel. You've heard that name before, correct?

Quite true! We came across that name within the library, right where the prince had been.

Sothis
The library! We came across that name within the library, right where the prince had been. Don't you recall?
link
Sothis
I thought that Arundel had died... And yet, not so. He seems alive and well.
link
Sothis
I wonder what the prince had hoped to learn from reading of his uncle's charity...
link
Sothis
So many things the prince has yet to tell... How bothersome...
