  • Annette: Hello, Professor. Do you have a moment?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Of course.
    • Choice 2: What do you need?
  • Annette: Well, I have this book of battle tactics that I borrowed from one of the knights. There's one part that I just don't understand. Do you think you could explain it to me?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Leave it to me.
    • Choice 2: I'm not sure I can.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: Great! Thank you so much! It's about this diagram here...
    • Choice 2 response: Oh. Well, maybe we can figure it out together. It's about this diagram here...
  • Annette: I don't get why the knights are grouping up in that forest there. I just can't see the advantage to a formation like that.

(Blackout)

  • Annette: Yay! I finally get it! You really are a great teacher.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I'm always happy to help.
    • Choice 2: You're the one who did the work.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: I knew asking you was the right idea.
    • Choice 2 response: No way. I couldn't have done it without you.
  • Annette: I just love learning new things. That's why I came to the Officers Academy. I want to learn magic, battle tactics, martial arts, and, and... Well, all kinds of stuff! I'm learning more now than I have in my whole entire life! Speaking of, I'd better go visit the library for some research before magic practice, which is just before sword training...
  • Byleth: Don't overdo it.
  • Annette: That's just not possible! I always find it's more tiring to laze around doing nothing. I've never been any good at that. I have to have something to do. Like, on my days off, I need to get up early and take care of the cleaning first, or I just...can't relax. Know what I mean?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Not really.
    • Choice 2: I know the feeling.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: But a day without accomplishments is completely wasted!
    • Choice 2 response: Oh, I'm so glad you agree! You'd be surprised how rare it is to find people like us. Mercie never sets foot outside her room on her days off. I don't get that girl sometimes.
  • Annette: Not to mention... Oh wait... Oh no! I was supposed to be on cooking duty today! I completely forgot! Sorry, Professor, but I have to run! Thanks again for your help!
  • Byleth: ...
  • Annette: Argh! Who put this stupid barrel here?

  • Annette: I'm so sorry, Professor... I somehow overslept and missed our training session. I didn't mean to cause you and the other so much trouble. Imagine if that had happened during one of our missions. It really is inexcusable!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Don't worry about it.
    • Choice 2: You need to rest more.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: It's just...when I'm studying tactics, I lose track of time, and... Oh, who am I kidding? I've always been like this.
    • Choice 2 response:
  • Annette: Before I came to the Officers Academy, I was a student at the school of sorcery in Fhirdiad. Even back then, I was pulling all-nighters well before the exams. And I never even noticed I was harming myself. I'm just too focused on my goal. I know I've already told you this, but I really love to learn new things. It's a passion of sorts. I first realized I had the learning bug when I was about four or five years old. My father was so happy to see me using magic... Seeing him happy made me happy too, and that made me want to work even harder. If only things could have stayed like that...
  • Byleth: What do you mean?
  • Annette: When I was about 13, my father left home. He was a devout man, so I figured he'd gone to the monastery. That's why I went to the school of sorcery, so that I could eventually get accepted at the Officers Academy. I studied harder than ever, and sure enough, I finally earned a referral. Unfortunately, my passion for learning became more of an obsession. I got so focused, I kind of forgot how to relax. It feels like I've been running in circles ever since.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Rest is just as important as work.
    • Choice 2: You're impressive just as you are.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: That's true. Just look at today. If my hard work stops me from working hard, what good is it?
    • Choice 2 response: No way! I still have such a long way to go. Still, I guess I'm doing something wrong if I'm working so hard I can't even work hard anymore.
  • Annette: OK, it's decided. From now on, I'll try my best not to try my best!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You have my support.
    • Choice 2: That's confusing.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: Yay! With you on my side, I'm sure to succeed!
    • Choice 2 response: I'm sorry! All I meant is that I'll try... I mean, I'll slow down a bit.
  • Annette: From now on, if you see me going overboard, just let me know. I'm a new woman, after all!

  • Annette: ... Oh. Hi, Professor.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You look down.
    • Choice 2: Did something happen?
  • Annette: Do you remember what we talked about before? About doing my best to not do my best? Well, I've been pretty busy recently, and despite my best efforts, I've been trying way to hard... I was busy all day yesterday with training and work. I just couldn't help myself! That's why I decided to take a day off today. It's just... Now that I have a day off, I don't know what to do with myself! Please, you have to help me! What should I do?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Nothing.
    • Choice 2: Have a nap.
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: I can't relax if I'm doing nothing! I need something to keep me occupied or I'll go nuts!
    • Choice 2 response: I tried that! I couldn't calm down enough to fall asleep. I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm cut out for not doing my best... Oh! You're a professor! You must know some secret technique for deep relaxation, right? If you do, please teach me! I'm begging you! I'm at my wit's end!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Have a cup of tea.
    • Choice 2: Have some sweets.
  • Annette: Got it! I'll try that right now! Mmm! This candy is so sweet and delicious! And it goes so well with piping hot tea! Ooh, and speaking of the tea, your brewing skills are incredible! I'd love to be able to make such nice tea, but... Oh, Professor! Will you teach me how to brew tea like this? I'll do my best to learn, and then I'll make delicious tea for you as thanks!
  • Byleth: Is this doing your best...
  • Annette: Oh... Um, sorry. Back to my old tricks, it seems... Oh! Why is it so difficult to not do my best?! I try and try not to try, but it just doesn't work!
  • Byleth: Just be yourself.
  • Annette: Professor... You're right! Doing nothing is just not my style! To be myself, I've got to do my best every day!
  • Byleth: That's the spirit!
  • Annette: OK! Then you really must teach me how to make such delicious tea! You will, won't you? Please! Oh, and also... Well, thank you. You've listened to me and helped me face my troubles. Now I feel like I can talk to you about anything. Honestly, I wish we could go on drinking tea like this forever...

  • Annette: There you are! Everybody's been looking for you. It must be hard being so popular. I bet it's a whole lot of work too... If I'm being honest, I'm a little bit envious.
  • Byleth:
    • Option 1: It's hard work.
    • Option 2: I like to keep busy.
  • Annette:
    • Option 1 response: Oh, but don't you enjoy keeping busy?
    • Option 2 response: So do I! Like I said, I'm envious.
  • Annette: After each battle, there's always more to do, so every day is exciting in its own way. Though it's true I haven't been able to relax for a while...no matter where I go or what I do. OK, so I finally realized why it is I feel this way. It's because...I need you.
  • Byleth: What do you mean?
  • Annette: When I'm with you, I feel like I can be myself. It's not a matter of doing my best or not doing my best... What really affects my happiness is whether I'm with you or not. Hehe! Um, actually, I've practiced what I'm going to say to you countless times... But of course, now that it's time to say it, I'm feeling shy. Terribly shy...
  • Byleth: I feel the same way.
  • Annette: You... You what?! Oh goodness! You really mean it!
  • Byleth: I love you, Annette. Marry me.
  • Annette: Oh! I...
  • Byleth: Yes?
  • Annette: I'm sorry! Why am I crying when I'm so happy? I've been so worried about this! I was thinking of what I'd do if...if...if you said no! But then...you asked me! I didn't even have to ask you! I love you! So very, very much! We'll be together forever! And ever! I promise to make you happier than anyone's ever been, my darling!

With Dimitri Edit

C Support Edit

  • Annette: Good morning, Your Highness! Getting in some early training, huh?
  • Dimitri: Oh, it's not too terribly early. And what about you?
  • Annette: Oh, I'm just going for my morning walk. Hey, maybe you'd like to join me. It's a great way to start the day!
  • Dimitri: A morning walk? Funny. Gustave always kept the same habit. You really do remind me of your father, Annette.
  • Annette: I hear that a lot. Father was always busy with work, so he wasn't around much. But when he was home, he'd often take me with him for his walks.
  • Dimitri: Annette... Something's been weighing on me. Something I've done terribly wrong. Your father... He worked tirelessly. I don't know if I ever saw him take a rest. I feel as though, in a way, we stole him from you.
  • Annette: I'll admit, it was a bit lonely growing up...but I understand. Father loved his work. No one ever doubted that. Actually...I've been thinking recently that I'd like to talk to you more, Your Highness.
  • Dimitri: Oh? Any reason in particular?
  • Annette: Father was a man of few words, both with myself and my mother. But sometimes he would tell me about you. So...you don't really feel like a stranger to me. In a way, it's like I've known you for a long time... Almost as though you're my big brother.
  • Dimitri: Your...big brother?
  • Annette: Oh! Uh... I'm so sorry. I don't know why I let that slip out. That was rude of me.
  • Dimitri: No, nonsense! I promise you, I don't mind at all. It's certain that my days would have been filled with more fun if I'd had a little sister like you. What kind of things did Gustave tell you about me? I'd love to hear more on this topic.
  • Annette: Do you really want to know? Well, for one, he used to tell this story about when you were a child and...
  • Dimitri: You know what? Never mind. I have a bad feeling about where this is going. How about you forget we had this talk altogether? And don't mention it to anyone...

B Support Edit

  • Annette: Your Highness! I have a little favor to ask of you.
  • Dimitri: Of course. How may I be of assistance?
  • Annette: Well, I was hoping you could...tell me about my father. I imagine he was a very different man at home than he was at work.
  • Dimitri: Ah, so you wish to hear about the Gustave that I knew... As you know, he was a knight who served the royal family since my grandfather's reign. To me, he was a teacher of martial arts and tactics. He was someone I depended on since I was a small child. But he was also a very stern and strict instructor.
  • Annette: That doesn't surprise me. He was much the same at home. He'd chide us if we made mistakes, whether it was with cooking or even how we spoke.
  • Dimitri: Is that so? Funny. I suppose in front of his family he felt the need to demonstrate proper etiquette.
  • Annette: Wait... Are you saying that's not how he was around you?
  • Dimitri: Even all these years alter, there's something I recall with perfect clarity. It happened in the autumn of my eleventh year... Before the break of dawn, he woke me suddenly. Said he'd heard a disturbance and had me grab my bow... Then he set me and a fellow pupil loose on a dark mountain. Our only directive was to "go catch a deer." As you well know, autumn in the capital is very cold. Now imagine being up on the mountain at night, with no idea what might jump out from the shadows. That, in a nutshell, is the Gustave I know.
  • Annette: Hehe, I can hardly imagine that! He was completely different with me.
  • Dimitri: I recall one other defining detail... He used to speak of you at every possible opportunity.
  • Annette: Really? What would he say about me?
  • Dimitri: Are you sure you want to know? There's one story he used to tell, from when you were very small...
  • Annette: No, stop! It's probably too embarrassing to bear... Is it?
  • Dimitri: Ah, perhaps...
  • Annette: Look, I'll promise to forget the stories he told me about you, if you return the favor. Deal?
  • Dimitri: Yes, that seems the only thing to do. It's a promise.

  • Annette: Your Highness! I have one more favor to ask...
  • Dimitri: Is this about Gustave again? I have plenty more stories about him, but perhaps it is time for you to speak with him yourself...
  • Annette: Um, it's not about Father this time. This time, I wanted to ask about you.
  • Dimitri: About me?
  • Annette: I mean, I heard all about Father last time. But I didn't ask about you.
  • Dimitri: Ah, well... I am afraid there is not much of interest for me to tell you.
  • Annette: Oh, it doesn't have to be funny or interesting! That's not why I'm asking. It's just that I thought I already knew you, but I'm not sure I really do... That day when we were reunited at the monastery... I didn't know what to say to you. So I wanted to prepare some of your favorite food.I thought maybe if you ate something that you liked, you'd cheer up a little. But when I got to he kitchen, I realized I didn't even know what you like to eat.
  • Dimitri: I see... Well, it's a little hard to say what my favorite is. I just don't really have any strong feelings about food. That said... You're pretty keen on sweet things, right, Annette?
  • Annette: Yes, that's right. I'm at my happiest when I'm digging into a sweet treat. Oh! Did you know there's a famous sweets shop in the capital?
  • Dimitri: Yes... It often had long lines outside, didn't it? The castle guards often spoke of it.
  • Annette: The sweets were so good... They cost a fortune, but I loved them. When Father was still around, we all lived as a family in the capital. Since then, I've had them only a few times. Ahh... How I'd love to taste them again.
  • Dimitri: Say, Annette... When this war is over, where will you go? I heard that you were close to Baron Dominic back in the academy days.
  • Annette: That's right... But five years ago, my uncle betrayed the Kingdom and went over to the Empire's side. I reconnected with Father. So I'd like to live with my family again, in the capital. Also, if I'm in the capital, I'll be able to see you from time to time... Right?
  • Dimitri: Ah, that settles it, then! We'll have to get your father working twice as hard!
  • Annette: Father's at a ripe old age now. I'd appreciate it if you didn't work him too hard!
  • Dimitri: Oh, of course. I will keep that in mind.

A Support 2 Edit

  • Annette: Your Highness! Thank you for everything.
  • Dimitri: This is sudden... Why so formal! You are not about to tell me you intend to leave the army, are you?
  • Annette: Oh, no, it's no that. I just had the chance to return to the capital on military business. It had really been a long time. Life's pretty hard there right now, but its old vitality seems to be returning, bit by bit. If it wasn't for you, I'm sure things wouldn't be looking so promising. So...
  • Dimitri: Come now, no need to exaggerate. Do not forget that I abandoned them and fled once as well.
  • Annette: You had no choice! If you had remained in the capital, you would have been killed. If you keep thinking so dark and gloomy, you're going to end up looking just like Father.
  • Dimitri: Annette... You probably do no realize, but over those five years, I took many, many lives. I slaughtered generals and officials alike, with brutality you would scarcely think a human was capable of. And as I have intensified my fight with the Empire, how many people have fallen in the capital? My hands are already dripping with blood. I cannot be forgiven.
  • Annette: You really are a lot more like Father than I am. Before Father left us, he used to say similar things. I don't want you to end up like him, so I've been thinking... When this war is over, I was wondering whether I could help you with your work. Of course, I don't know how much I'd be able to support a king...
  • Dimitri: What are you saying?
  • Annette: If I leave you to your own devices, you'll forget how to laugh! We can't have that. You won't be able to do what you have to do with such a miserable look n your face. So, if you'll have me, I'd like to stay by your side. If you're sad or suffering, I'll just starve you until you muster a smile!
  • Dimitri: Starve me... Hahaha!
  • Annette: Hey! You weren't supposed to laugh at that part! I thought a lot about this!
  • Dimitri: Heh... Sorry... I could not help myself. Certainly, with you around, I will not have any cause to frown. By all means, join me, Annette. And never lose that sweet smile of yours.
  • Annette: Yes! I promise!

  • Annette: Soul stirring? My creepity creep song? I think that's a bit of an exaggeration...
  • Claude: I never, ever exaggerate. In fact, it reminded me of rituals we have back where I grew up. We'd gather around a blazing fire and spend the whole night caught up in song and dance. Not unlike what you just demonstrated. Really, the dance I'm thinking of is exactly like the one you just did. We'd scream like beasts and then jump up and roll around. It's freeing, isn't it?
  • Annette: Scream? Like a beast? That's not what I was doing. And...and what's this weird ritual you're talking about?
  • Claude: Even better than your angelic voice were your lyrics. I can't even begin to fathom the deep meaning they contain, but maybe if we talk about it...
  • Annette: Deep meaning? No... Just... No.
  • Claude: Oh, I get it. It's the sort of thing you have to figure out for yourself. OK, don't tell me. Give me time. I'll work it out.

  • Claude: A land that's dark and frigidly cold... That could only mean the underworld. In my search for truth, I read up on the old rituals of the eastern regions of Faerghus. Those who died with regret are thought to end up in an underworld of sorts. Somewhere cold. Somewhere dark. Somewhere...creepy. To escape from their bitter limbo, they did their way up through the earth, trying to find the surface...or the light in other words. And so they creep about endlessly in the cold dirt of the underworld, clinging to their hopeless desire...Creepity creep, Annette. Creepity creep.
  • Annette: Eh...
  • Claude: So? Was I right or was I right?
  • Annette: What? No! You're not even close! It wasn't supposed to be a dark and miserable song at all.
  • Claude: Huh. Now that I think about it...the melody and dance didn't really match the weight of the lyrics.
  • Annette: The lyrics are simply about seeds pushing out of the ground to become sweet, little buds. They creep through the dirt until they find the light! The song just describes what it's like to be a budding flower.
  • Claude: Damn. That is good stuff. OK, maybe I read too much into it. Actually, now that you've explained, it really is a nice little song. Creepity creep... The gentle journey from the ground to the surface. I love it.
  • Annette: Do you...think it's embarrassing that I made up such a silly song?
  • Claude: Not at all. Oh! But that reminds me. I was so inspired by Creepity Creep that I made up some lyrics of my own. I've been nonchalantly carrying them around with me hoping to run into you. Would you mind taking a look?
  • Annette: Oh, of course! Let's see here... ♪ Walking the purpose and a steady stride... Lively and bright and full of pride... Crying, laughing, and blazing ahead... Why worry 'bout tomorrow? Let's eat instead... ♪ So, uh... What would you say this song is about, Claude?
  • Claude: Oh, Annette. Sweet Annette. This time it's your turn to decipher its meaning. Let me know when you've figured it out!

  • Annette: I thought i may as well get it over with, so I decided to carry them all at once. Big mistake.
  • Linhardt: Smart thinking. "Do it all at once!" That's what they say, right? Work smart, not hard.

  • Linhardt:Thaw was almost pretty bad.
  • Annette: Linhardt! I thought you had an important nap to get to.
  • Linhardt: I'd call it insomnia, but I suppose it was really just a guilty conscience. I came to see if you needed help. And sure enough, here you are, about to tip all the boxes on the floor.
  • Annette: Thanks. Though it may have been best if you had just chipped in from the start...
  • Linhardt: Huh? But it was your job. Why would I step in? You clearly had things handled.
  • Annette: Then why help me at all?
  • Linhardt: If the boxes had fallen just now, everyone would have had to help tidy them up anyway. If anything broke, more boxes would need to be carried... And if all of that came to pass, then there'd be noise and more noise and no chance of my taking a nap.
  • Annette: Huh. But if you had helped me from the start, there would have been no danger of anything being dropped at all.
  • Linhardt: Correct. But there was no danger yet, and so there was no need for my help. So I left you to it. Try carrying one box at a time instead of straining to do it all at once. Work smart, not hard, as they say. All right, well, I think you've got it from here, so I'm off. Good luck.

  • Linhardt: I was dreaming about the best afternoon nap of my life, and the dream I was having in the dream was amazing...
  • Annette: I thought as much. I have to ask. I'm pretty sure you could do anything you put your mind to, so why do you spend so much of your life sleeping?
  • Linhardt: I sleep because I'm tired. What other reason would I have?
  • Annette: No one can be that tired all the time.
  • Linhardt: Well, not all the time, no. Most nights, I'm quite wide awake. Sometimes I get distracted and forget to sleep. Usually, I sleep for two days for every three I'm awake.

  • Linhardt: Not as such. Why would I go through that effort? For what gain?
  • Annette: Um, for the gain I mentioned...that it helps you grow as a person.
  • Linhardt: Oh, I see. Well then, continue working hard for my sake. For example, waking me up today. And I suppose I will try to do a little bit more for you too... I find working for others to be annoying, yet I wish to make an exception for you. I hope that's all right...
  • Annette: Just for me?

  • Annette: I looked away for a moment and the pan just went BOOM! Ugh, I'm grateful nothing caught fire, but now the kitchen is a mess.
  • Dedue: Are you hurt?
  • Annette: Oh, no. I just got a little spooked. Heh, I really lucked out, didn't I? That could have turned out much worse.
  • Dedue: Indeed. But do not turn your back next time. Your life could depend on it.

  • Annette: Of course not! I'm just so sorry to bother you with this.

B Support Edit

  • Annette: Hi, Dedue! I wanted to thank you again for helping me out the other day. Everything was ready in time for dinner, and we all agreed the food was really tasty!
  • Dedue: I barely did anything.
  • Annette: That's silly talk! With just a few ingredients, you made an amazing meal! I could never have done it, no way. You deserve all the praise in the world!
  • Dedue: I still have much to learn. Truly delicious food brings a smile to people's faces. Until I see His Highness smile that way, I will spare no effort to improve.
  • Annette: Well, if that's your aim, you're in luck! I've seen him shovel in your food with gusto. You must be really ambitious if you're not satisfied with that meal. I've love for you to teach me your ways. I want to be a great cook too!
  • Dedue: Your skills are not the problem. You merely make errors of negligence.
  • Annette: Well, sure...I know that. But how can I stop making those errors? No matter how hard I try, I always seem to mess things up. The pan explodes when I cook. I forget my purse when I go shopping. That's just how life is for a scatterbrain like me. Just the other day I was nearly laughed off the training ground for wearing mismatched shoes! My uncle used to sigh in despair when he saw me messing something up.
  • Dedue: You simply fail to pay attention to your surroundings. Ensure the pan is on the flame, and that the knives are put away properly. Look at yourself in the mirror before you go out to make certain you have what you need. Everyone makes mistakes, but yours should be easy enough to correct.
  • Annette: That's all great advice. Thank you, Dedue! You really have a kind heart. At first I thought you were so stern all the time.
  • Dedue: Am I that imposing?
  • Annette: Uh. Well. A bit? Maybe if you smiled sometimes. All you have to do is lift up the corners of your mouth, like this. See?
  • Dedue: I see. I- will try it.

  • Annette: Don't be ridiculous! And especially don't be sad. It's no trouble at all, I promise. Everyone makes mistakes. Isn't that what you've been trying to teach me?
  • Dedue: Yes, I suppose so.
  • Annette: It does look like this will take a while to clean up. But if we work together, it'll be done in no time!
  • Dedue: I am truly sorry.

  • Annette: Sure! And in return, you can help me out when I'm on kitchen duty.

  • Annette: By the way, I tried out all that stuff you mentioned before. About how not to be a scatterbrain. I'm still pretty hopeless, but thanks to you, I'm making fewer mistakes. It's probably not a good idea for me to be left alone around knives and boiling water though. That's why it'll be nice knowing you have my back!

He said if I wasn't perfect, as a knight's daughter, I'd be devaluing my Crest. Whenever I messed up he'd look so mad... And he'd sigh, like he'd just lost his faith in humanity.
  • Dedue: That is harsh.
  • Annette: Oh, I know he loved me and all... He was just kind of scary. But you've helped me out and been patient with me without getting mad. I'm just so happy! Thank you, Dedue.
  • Dedue: I have hardly done anything.

  • Dedue: It is a meat dish from Faerghus.

  • Annette: Oh! Ashe. Are you here to study too?
  • Ashe: I am! It's quiet i here. Easier to concentrate.
  • Annette: It really is. Hey, would you like to study together? We can help each other out if we get stuck.
  • Ashe: Oh, yes! We'll get a lot more done working together.

(They start studying together.)

  • Ashe: Uh... Hmm...
  • Annette: What's the matter, Ashe?
  • Ashe: This question's got me stumped. "A ballista inside a castle is ready to fire at enemies outside. What angle should be used for the shot? Assume the ballista is the same as those in Garreg Mach. Ignore the effects of wind." This is fore defensive strategy, isn't it? Why is it so complicated? Don't you just aim and fire?
  • Annette: Hmm... It may help to focus on maximizing target accuracy to reduce your miss rate. To start, let's sort out the setup. Let's see...using the ballista specifications... If the ballista quarrels follow this trajectory, they'll hit the enemy lines, right?
  • Ashe: Oh, that makes sense! Because the enemy line will be here!
  • Annette: That's it! OK, now try using that same technique and applying it to this other problem.
  • Ashe: If the walls are this high, and he enemy lines are that distance--ah! I think I see!
  • Annette: I knew you'd get it.
  • Ashe: Wow. I didn't expect math, of all things, to be useful in a siege. This is tough. Numbers are not my strong suit. But this really is the sort of thing you have to know if you want to command troops.
  • Annette: That's true. But not everyone is good with numbers.That's why we have tacticians to do these calculations for us, or prepare them before we go to battle. A century ago, the Empire's mathematicians played a huge role in the Battle of the Wall of Fódlan.
  • Ashe: I had no idea. Hey, you really know what you're doing, Annette!
  • Annette: You think so?
  • Ashe: Definitely! You've obviously done a lot of studying. I really admire that.
  • Annette: I suppose I have! Studying is a necessity if you want the advantage over your enemies. But necessity aside, it's nice to hear you say that.

  • Annette: Well, studying was something of a necessity for me.
  • Ashe: What do you mean?
  • Annette: My father was one of the king's knights. One day, he never returned home. He just left without ever saying a word to me or my mother.
  • Ashe: I'm so sorry to hear that. Losing a father so suddenly... I completely understand.
  • Annette: After he left, I thought a lot about where he might have gone. My father was a devout believer, so I was certain he must have come here to Garreg Mach.
  • Ashe: Here? Really?!
  • Annette: That's why I was determined to gain acceptance into the academy. I needed to come here so I could search for my father. The problem was that I needed money to get in. Lots of it. And I didn't have any at all. So I entered the school of sorcery in Fhirdiad first, hoping I could somehow find a path here. I studied tirelessly until I finally earned myself a recommendation.
  • Ashe: Oh, wow. So for you, studying has been like a way to meet your destiny.
  • Annette: Destiny, huh? Well, yes, but it's a bit embarrassing when you put it like that. Now I have other reasons for wanting to keep trying hard. I want to protect all of my friends and allies here. I'm studying hard so I can be as useful as possible to everyone I hold dear.

  • Annette: The doll from my father must be in this tower. But I'm too scared to go looking for it...
  • Ashe: Annette!
  • Annette: Ashe! What are you doing here?
  • Ashe: Phew... Here! I got this for you!
  • Annette: My doll! You went back for it? But why?
  • Ashe: Your father gave it to you. I know you said you'd throw it away, but you can't just toss out something so important.
  • Annette: Ashe... Thank you! I'm so happy! To be honest, I didn't have the courage to go back in there to get it myself. But thanks to you, I didn't have to. And you're afraid of ghosts, right? Were you OK in there all by yourself?
  • Ashe: Well, ah, not really... I tried my best not to think about it. My legs shook whenever I did.
  • Annette: Oh, poor Ashe! You're safe now, I promise.
  • Ashe: Knock it off, would you? I'm OK now. But I'm glad I could help you and see a smile on your face. Look at me though. Haha, a grown man, and scared of ghosts. Pathetic, right?
  • Annette: No, I don't think that at all. I think you're something special, Ashe! You were really brave. And all for me... That wasn't an easy thing to do. I'm in awe of you!
  • Ashe: Thanks. Maybe there is still hope for me as a knight.
  • Annette: Yes, I'll gladly attest to that! I'm sure you'll be a splendid knight! Maybe you'll even outdo my father!
  • Ashe: That's a frightening thought, comparing me to one of the king's best knights. But it's a happy one too. It makes me want to work that much harder!

With Sylvain Edit

C Support Edit

  • Sylvain: Hey, Annette. Hitting the magic books again? Has anyone ever told you that you're pretty cute when you're studying?
  • Annette: Sorry, Sylvain, but I'm trying to think right now. Could you keep quiet for a bit?
  • Sylvain: How can you stay focused reading a book that thick...with such small print? Is some of that text upside down?
  • Annette: If I use the formula in this line here, the magical energy should... No, that's not right...
  • Sylvain: You're even cuter when you're working through a difficult problem.
  • Annette: Sylvain, I'm serious! Please be quiet.
  • Sylvain: Hang on. Look at the third line. You've got the formula wrong.
  • Annette: I said be... Oh. You're right. How did you know that?
  • Sylvain: Well, I mean, it's written right there...
  • Annette: Most people wouldn't be able to grasp this formula just by glancing at it. Have you read this book before?
  • Sylvain: Nope, this is the first time. OK, now that I look at it... Wow. This book makes things way more complicated than they need to be.
  • Annette: Hmm... And what's your take on this part here?
  • Sylvain: It's just describing another application for the same formula. Ha! This is pretty easy!
  • Annette: You know...you're actually king of amazing. I've been studying magic for a while now, but even I have trouble with this stuff. You act like all you do is mess around, but are you actually working hard in secret?
  • Sylvain: Nah, hanging out with girls is way more fun. I guess I just picked this stuff up somewhere. Life is short, Annette. If you waste it working hard, it'll be over before you know it. Get out in the world. Have some fun!
  • Annette: That's easy for you to say. You're strong and smart without even trying. It's not fair.
  • Sylvain: Uh...
  • Annette: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to be rude.
  • Sylvain: No, I was just thinking that you're pretty cute when you're sulking. You know that?
  • Annette: What is wrong with you?
  • Sylvain: Hey, uh, I just got lucky with that stuff in the book. I'd normally never be able to outsmart you. Anyway...I'm gonna get out of here and leave you to it.
  • Annette: Got lucky, huh? I'm not sure about that. Well, that does it. It might be tough, but I won't accept second place. Let's go, me! I can do this! I'm going to finish this whole book before sundown!

B Support Edit

  • Annette: Sylvain! Good timing. There's something I want to say to you.
  • Sylvain: Uh-oh. Did I do something wrong? Did you spot me sneaking back in this morning? Or is it about that girl who got mad I kissed her sister good-night... I can explain either way.
  • Annette: No! I'm not here to get after you about those things. Surely other people have that covered. What I really want to talk about is your behavior during our training sessions. When we're sparring, you're always passing on great opportunities to get the edge on me. It's almost as though you're going out of your way to make me think you're incapable!
  • Sylvain: Nah, I just like giving other people the spotlight.
  • Annette: Uh-huh. It's not that you took something I said to heart? About how you don't have to work hard to be good at stuff and how that isn't fair?
  • Sylvain: I did take those things to heart. We're friends, right? I'd be sad if you started to hate me. There's just one thing I want you to remember. Guys like me ho hate hard work and sorta get by on our wits? It all falls apart eventually. I'm smart enough to know that. So I respect people like you. I mean it.
  • Annette: Oh. Is that...sincerity? It's kind of creeping me out. It's just so unlike you!
  • Sylvain: Huh?
  • Annette: When you say nice things like that, I can't take joy in beating you! I want to beat you when you're at your best! That's why it bothers me so much when you don't try your hardest against me.
  • Sylvain: Let me put this a different way... I've always been treated like I'm special, and I'm not. At least, I don't think I am. I'm just tired of people thinking they know what I can and can't do. When everybody expects something of you or envies you...it's kind of suffocating. I'd rather people think I'm dumb. Well, I mean, I can still be pretty dumb. Heh...
  • Annette: I have to admit, I have a hard time understanding where you're coming from. Just know that...I want you to keep being great at things without trying. If you stop being that way, I won't have any competition!
  • Sylvain: Heh, competition, huh? I like the sound of that. Where the heck were you when I was growing up? If I had someone like you back then, I think I may have turned out different. Better, I mean. Anyway, I'd love to chat more with you. Would you like to grab some tea with me or...
  • Annette: Sure thing! The very next moment I'm free. For now, I need to get to my magic training.
  • Sylvain: Oh, I see. Some other time then. I look forward to it, Annette.

With Mercedes Edit

  • Annette: That shopping trip took longer than expected, didn't it Mercie?
  • Mercedes: It truly did. You bought just about everything in the place.
  • Annette: Hehe, you're so good at deciding the best thing to buy. I sort of wanted it all! I mean, not that I was excessive. I think you bought just about as much as I did.
  • Mercedes: Oh, really? The number of bags you're carrying says otherwise.
  • Annette: What?! That's... Oh, fine. You got me. I was just having too much fun! I love shopping with you, Mercie.
  • Mercedes: It was fun! It's nice going into town without having to run errands for once.
  • Annette: Isn't it? And I'm pretty confident the professor will forgive us for our little detour. This actually reminds me of going to school in Fhirdiad.
  • Mercedes: Me too. It almost feels like that time in our lives was a story from long ago.
  • Annette: So much has changed since then. Oh, but there's at least one thing that hasn't changed.
  • Mercedes: Me and you, right? We're the same old friends we always were.
  • Annette: That's just what I was about to say!
  • Mercedes: I've known you so long I can always guess.
  • Annette: Mercie, we'll stay friends like this forever... Won't we?
  • Mercedes: Is something wrong? You sound worried.
  • Annette: Since our time in the capital, so much has happened. We've had to make new lives for ourselves, and we've seen at least as many hard times as good. If things keep changing like this, I wonder if we'll be able to stay the same people we are now...
  • Mercedes: I wonder that too. I don't think everything in the future will be perfect. But it's us, so I'm sure-
  • Annette: We'll figure it out together. Right?
  • Mercedes: How did you know what I was going to say?
  • Annette: Oh, Mercie. I can always guess what you're going to say.

(monastery bells are heard)

  • Mercedes: Oh. It's getting late. We'd better hurry back before the professor gets angry.
  • Annette: You're right. Run, Mercie!

(Annette runs off screen)

  • Mercedes: What? Wait for me, Annie! You know I'm not as fast as you!

(Mercedes follows)

  • Annette: Run! Haha!

B Support Edit

  • Annette: OK, Mercie. This time we're gonna be really good and get the supplies with no detours.
  • Mercedes: You're so good at sticking to a plan. I should leave the shopping to you. I'll stay out of your way and just browse.
  • Annette: Hey, that's not fair! I want to browse too!

(Rogue enters)

  • Rogue: Looks like you girls are havin' a good time!
  • Mercedes: Uh, Annie? Is this a friend of yours?
  • Annette: I've never seen this person before. I'm sorry to be rude, but we're kind of busy.
  • Rogue: Wait a minute. I think you're shopping with money you stole! No need to worry your pretty little heads. I'm just gonna have to take it back for us common folk!
  • Annette: Step back, Mercie. This could get dangerous. Listen here, you! There's no way you can win against me. I don't want to fight you, but I will if I have to. So just...back away!
  • Rogue: You think you can talk to me that way?! I'm gonna-
  • Mercedes: Oh! The knights are coming!
  • Rogue: What?!

(Rogue flees)

  • Mercedes: Annie, run!

(They both run)

  • Annette: This is far enough. We should be safe.
  • Mercedes: I hope so...but what were you thinking? That sort of behavior isn't like you at all!
  • Annette: I just... I thought you were in danger, Mercie!
  • Mercedes: You're actually blaming me for this? It's like I don't even know you anymore!

(Mercedes leaves)

  • Annette: Mercie! I was just trying to protect you...

A Support Edit

  • Mercedes: Annie...do you have a moment?
  • Annette: Is this about what happened when we were shopping? If so, it's fine. Don't worry about it.
  • Mercedes: Not so fast! I haven't properly apologized yet! So, I'm sorry. I just... I got scared. Imagine if something had happened to you because of me...
  • Annette: Mercie...
  • Mercedes: You would have just run away if you were on your own, wouldn't you? Instead you acted defensively because I was there. I dragged you down...
  • Annette: Mercie, you're upsetting me! How dare you say that you drag me down! You know why I was acting so recklessly? Because I wanted to protect my best friend in the whole world!
  • Mercedes: Annie...
  • Annette: Do you remember when we first enrolled at the academy? It seemed like everyone was leagues ahead of us and so far out of reach. I felt completely hopeless... But because you were there, I didn't lose hope. So... Don't say stupid things about how you drag me down or how you don't deserve things!
  • Mercedes: Thank you for saying that... And again, I'm sorry. You're just so important to me. I know I could never find another friend like you. You've stayed by my side through thick and thin... I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if anything happened to you because of me.
  • Annette: Mercie, can we be friends again?
  • Mercedes: Of course, Annie. Friends forever.
  • Annette: Good! I don't know what I would have done if we hadn't found a way to make up.
  • Mercedes: I'm sorry. I should have said something sooner.
  • Annette: No, I'm the one who should have stopped being so stubborn and said something. You know, now that everything's as it should be, I'm suddenly starving!
  • Mercedes: That's just like you. Come, let's go for tea.
  • Annette: Ooh, let's! And we should have some Mercie-baked sweets on the side! I think I love you more than just about anything in the world!
  • Mercedes: You do? Oh, Annie, you're too sweet.
  • Annette: Not as sweet as your baking! I love your baking more than anything in the world too, other than you.
  • Mercedes: Well, I'm always happy to bake for you, Annie!
  • Annette: I'm so happy to have you bake-uh, back!

With Ingrid Edit

C Support Edit

  • Annette: Hello, Ingrid. Can I have just a teeny tiny moment of your time?
  • Ingrid: Sure, I can spare a moment or two.
  • Annette: I was wondering... Do you have any interest in fashion and makeup and stuff like that?
  • Ingrid: I haven't the time to bother with such frivolities. As long as basic hygiene is being met, then I'm happy.
  • Annette: Oh, but you're missing out on something so fun! I mean, it's not like you need it, of course. You've got beautiful bone structure, lovely hair, long legs... But aren't you interested in trying something new?
  • Ingrid: Um, well, thank you... I suppose I do find it all somewhat intriguing. But my time is precious to me, and my focus is on knighthood. Taking time to paint my face simply isn't a top priority.
  • Annette: Sure, but imagine if you could combine the two and become the most fabulous knight ever! OK, maybe I'm taking it too far. I know knights don't necessarily need a ton of make-up or things like that for the job. I'm just saying I really think you'd enjoy it if you opened your mind to it. All I'm talking about is a light touch. I can see it now... Your gorgeous face done up with a delicate application of makeup. The fabulous knight who everyone looks up to and wants to be!
  • Ingrid: Um...well, maybe? I guess? That does sound mostly harmless...
  • Annette: Hooray! OK, we don't have a moment to lose. Here, take this makeup kit. Play around with the colors and see what speaks to you.
  • Ingrid: Now wait just a-
  • Annette: I actually got that little kit as a gift the other day, and I wasn't sure what to do with it, because I already have that one. It's a limited palette, but I think it fits the look you're going for perfectly.
  • Ingrid: I actually never agreed to start putting that stuff on my face, Annette.
  • Annette: What? Oh... Well then I guess this whole kit will have to go to waste. I'll just throw it away like the garbage it is.
  • Ingrid: You're throwing it away? I can't just stand by and let something go to waste... OK. All right. Thank you. We can do this.
  • Annette: That's the spirit! Oh, and I'm happy to help you learn to apply it too. Come on, let's go to my room. I have some brush techniques to show you before you get started.
  • Ingrid: Now, don't get carried away... Argh. She played me like a fiddle.

B Support Edit

  • Annette: Ingrid...
  • Ingrid: What's the matter Annette? You look upset.
  • Annette: I'm just so sorry. I had no idea!
  • Ingrid: I'm not sure I follow. Take a breath. What's going on?
  • Annette: Well, I was really curious about why you're not interested in things like makeup. So I asked some of our friends about it...and...
  • Ingrid: Oh, I see, I imagine they mentioned that my family was fairly poor, and they probably also mentioned that I lost my fiancé, Correct?
  • Annette: They did. I'm so sorry. It was so thoughtless of me to try pushing those things on you.
  • Ingrid: It's perfectly fine, Annette. It's true my family struggled financially. It wasn't easy growing up, but it taught me values I wouldn't have learned otherwise. And we weren't so poor that I consider myself deprived. I'm sure my family would've bought me makeup if I wanted it. But it never mattered enough to me- not then, and not now.
  • Annette: Oh. So you just...never sought that stuff out?
  • Ingrid: Never. While I acknowledge it can be fun, fussing over my outward appearance isn't an instinct of mine. When I was younger, I'd usually be found covered in dirt, bugs in my hair, and a big smile on my face. Things haven't changed too much since. Then, when my fiancé passed on, my priorities shifted even further. It reminded me of what's most important in life. Beyond that...it's hard to think of myself changing without him around to see it, even if it's something trivial like how I present myself. But talking to you has helped me realize it's OK to loosen up and enjoy those things if I want. So...thank you.
  • Annette: Me? Oh, I didn't do anything at all. Except pester.
  • Ingrid: More importantly... Do you notice anything different about me today?
  • Annette: Yes! It's very subtle, but I could tell right away that you were using that makeup that I gave you!
  • Ingrid: You could? Ah, that makes me happy. I was trying to apply it just how you showed me.
  • Annette: You did great, and it really suits you.
  • Ingrid: I think there's a lot I can learn from you, Annette. You've helped me embrace a lighter side of life I quite like.
  • Annette: It's my pleasure. Oh, this is so great! Want to go shopping to celebrate?
  • Ingrid: Uh, shopping? But...what would we buy? That sounds so overwhelming!
  • Annette: There's a dress I've been eyeing for a while now. I'm certain it will complement your pretty eyes. Just leave it to me, Ingrid. I'll make you the most fabulous knight this world has ever seen!
  • Ingrid: Well that does sound fun! I look forward to it.

  • Annette: Hi hi, Lysithea! When are you going to teach me magic ? Is now good?
  • Lysithea: Why do I have to?
  • Annette: Why? Because you're way better at it than me, silly!
  • Lysithea: Is that so. I thought you were something of an honors student at the school of sorcery?
  • Annette: Well, sure... But I wouldn't say I've got any kind of natural talent for it. I'm going to have to try very hard to become as as good off a mage as you are!
  • Lysithea: What is that supposed to mean? Are you implying that I don't work hard too? IF you think my skills are inherent, you are sorely mistaken.
  • Annette:No! I wasn't saying that at all ! Everyone knows how hard you work. I just meant that if I want to be as good as you, I'll have to work really, incredibly hard!
  • Lysithea: Hm. And what is it you want to learn about?
  • Annette: Oh! So you 'll teach me? Thank you so much! Um, actually...

(They both study)

  • Annette: Oh, I get it now! I never though about it that way before!
  • Lysithea: Look at how quickly you're picking this up. You're clearly very skilled already.
  • Annette:Don't be silly. You're just that good of a teacher! Your way of looking at the world is so fundamentally different from mine
  • Lysithea: Do you insist on taking the conversation in that direction?
  • Annette:Oh no, I'm sorry! I wasn't doing that! There I go, saying the wrong thing again.
  • Lysithea: It's fine. Let's just drop it. A bit more self-confidence would go a long way for you, Annette.
  • Annette: Huh?
  • Lysithea: That's all I've got for you today. I need to get going now. Lots to do.
  • Annette: Oh, I'm sorry to take up your time! Thanks again for teaching me!

  • Annette: Oh... Hey, how about I clean up for you?
  • Hilda: Really? That would be amazing! So, are you good at cleaning?
  • Annette: I love it! Actually, the messier a room is, the more determined I get to conquer the crud!

Scene change
  • Annette: I'm so terribly sorry, Hilda. I wanted to clean up for you, but I basically did the opposite...
  • Hilda: No kidding. I guess it was my fault for getting you to clean up my mess. At any rate, you've made such a mess of my mess, now I feel motivated to clean my own room. So, that's kind of a positive outcome.
  • Annette: I guess that's one way to think of it...
  • Hilda: You know, I really admire your can-do attitude. Although, it might be, ah, too much? You don't want to overextend yourself. For one thing, you'll tire yourself out. Based on what I just saw, you might even get hurt.
  • Annette: Don't worry about me! I'm fine! I've been like this my whole life. I've never wanted to let anyone down. My parents, my uncle... So I always try to give it my all. And it's taken me this far, at least!

  • Annette: You really think it was foolish to abandon us?

I have a busy and satisfying life now. But Mother... She's waited for you to return all this time, living under my uncle's roof.

  • Gilbert: Yes.
  • Annette: So why didn't you send any of them? If you had sent even one, we would have...
