Chapter Quotes Edit

Chapter 1 (White Clouds) Edit

Vs. Dimitri Edit

  • Edelgard: I would expect no less!

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Claude: Look at that, a real-life princess! I"ll have to be careful not to scar that little face of yours.
  • Edelgard: Careful, Claude. I'll win no matter what, but you're only making things harder for yourself.
  • Claude: Losing hasn't even crossed your mind, has it? Ooh, this'll be a bit of shock, then.
  • Edelgard: To shock was your intention to begin with, was it not?

Chapter 2 (White Clouds) Edit

First Kill Edit

  • Edelgard: Regrettable...but there was no other way.

Vs. Kostas Edit

  • Kostas: Spoiled little noble! Just die like a good little rich kid!
  • Edelgard: Do you really think being born a commoner gives you the right to kill? Despicable.

  • "It’s almost time to begin. Steel yourselves, everyone."

Vs. Dimitri Edit

  • Dimitri: So, it is time to cross blades… I have never imagined such a day would come to pass.
  • Edelgard: If the Empire and the Kingdom go to war, we’ll be able to fight as much as we please.
  • Dimitri: I am very sorry, but that is not something to joke about. The thought of fighting you is troubling at best.
  • Edelgard: In that case, I wonder when you’ll be able to stomach facing me in battle… Do you need a few moments?

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Claude: Hey, Princess! Heads up! There's a rat right by your Imperial feet...
  • Edelgard: BAH! I-- Huh. How dare you make a fool of me. You will not rile me with such childish tactics.
  • Claude: Ah, so the sheer terror in your eyes was...something else entirely. My mistake. Anyway, it was only a joke.
  • Edelgard: You really hope to unsettle me with childish jokes? It won't work. You must stand and fight!

Chapter 8 (White Clouds) Edit

Vs. Solon Edit

  • Edelgard: Tomas! No... Solon. I will stop you.
  • Solon: What?! If you insist on turning your blade against me, then expect no mercy.

Vs. Death Knight Edit

  • Edelgard: You're the one who should be answering that question. Stay out of my way!

Chapter 10 (White Clouds) Edit

Vs. Kronya Edit

  • Kronya: Huh? What are you- Are you here to kill me?
  • Edelgard: I am. Prepare yourself for death while you still can.

Vs. Solon Edit

  • Solon: So, this is how it is... I cannot let you live!
  • Edelgard: You stole the words from my mouth. You lost the moment you failed to kill the professor.

Chapter 12 (Crimson Flower) Edit

Vs. Rhea Edit

  • Rhea: No matter your reasons, I cannot permit you to go on living any longer!
  • Edelgard: The feeling is mutual. I must put a stop to your reign of tyranny!
  • Rhea: You must know what a fool you are. The greatest of sins is to make an enemy of the goddess herself!
  • Edelgard: I have only made an enemy of the church, not of the faith.

Chapter 14 (Crimson Flower) Edit

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Claude: We haven't seen each other since Garreg Mach. You've grown lovelier than ever, Edelgard.
  • Edelgard: You're not so unfortunate yourself. And as usual, you're here at a most inopportune moment.
  • Claude: Well, I'm sure we have much to talk about... But how about we settle things first?
  • Edelgard: No objections here. Prepare yourself, Claude.

Vs. Lysithea Edit

  • Edelgard: Lysithea. How unfortunate that a talented woman like you should throw her life away on a pointless battle.
  • Lysithea: Ha, do not underestimate me. The fight is far from over, Edelgard!

Vs. Nader Edit

  • Nader: The emperor continues fighting at the front line. Is the Empire short on troops?
  • Edelgard: Unfortunately, I can't deny it. But then, I've heard the Almyran king does the very same. You have traveled far. I do hope it's for a king who would not only lead his army but fight at their side.
  • Nader: Touché... Yes, he is that sort of king!

Chapter 17 (Crimson Flower) Edit

Vs. Dimitri Edit

  • Dimitri: Must you continue to conquer? Continue to kill?
  • Edelgard: Must you continue to reconquer? Continue to kill in retaliation? I will not stop. There is nothing I would not sacrifice to cut a path to Fódlan's new dawn!
  • Dimitri: Enough of this madness! This future of yours is built on a foundation of corpses and tears!

Vs. Rhea Edit

  • Rhea: An ancestor of the Hresvelgs, who became Adrestia's first emperor... He saved me. Supported me. Gave his all to the cause of defeating Nemesis. That I should find myself here at Tailtean, striking down his scion...
  • Edelgard: I don't advise presumptions, Rhea. I will not die by your hand.

Chapter 18 (Crimson Flower) Edit

Vs. The Immaculate One Edit

  • Edelgard: So it's true. You don't value human life at all. Isn't that right, Immaculate One?
  • The Immaculate One: Nonsense! Fools who do not accept their own sins are undeserving of salvation! You humans are the ones who betrayed! You betrayed me, and you betrayed my mother!
  • Edelgard: I did not betray you or her. I never believed in you from the beginning.

Enemy Edelgard Edit

Chapter 1 (White Clouds) Edit

Vs. Byleth Edit

  • "There can be no victory unless I defeat you. So be it! "

Chapter 7 (White Clouds) Edit

Vs. Byleth Edit

  • Edelgard: If you stand in my way, I will cut you down until you have no blood left to bleed.
  • Byleth: ...
  • Edelgard: What? I was just trying to rally your spirits. Now, to victory!

Chapter 12 (White Clouds) Edit

"You will come to regret raising your blade against the emperor of the Adrestian Empire!"

Vs. Byleth Edit

  • "I wish you were someone whose heart could be swayed by my words and deeds. If it were so, I would have done anything to make you my ally..."

Vs. Constance Edit

  • Edelgard: So, House Nuvelle has chosen the path that will lead to its ultimate demise. How pitiable.
  • Constance: As you say, I have forfeited my claim on being a noble of the Empire. That is why you must permit me to challenge you in combat, that I may establish a new House Nuvelle.
  • Edelgard: As you wish. Let's see if your resolve is a match for my own.

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Claude: Here she is-Her Majesty-looking as pleased as a dog with a stick. What exactly happened to make you this way?
  • Edelgard: I'm simply seeing through a promise I made to myself a long time ago.
  • Claude: Isn't this much force excessive? Thanks to you, my own long-held ambitions are nearly destroyed.
  • Edelgard: If you don't want them to be destroyed completely, I suggest you turn tail and flee.

Vs. Dimitri Edit

  • Dimitri: You're late. I... We are all tired of waiting. Now, let's separate that sick head from your neck, shall we?
  • Edelgard: Heh. You never were one for patience.

Vs. Recruited Black Eagle Edit

  • "Think very carefully about whether you wish to raise your sword against the Empire...or if you will offer it to us in fealty. And after you've thought it through, if you still wish to fight, I won't stop you. I will simply use the full extent of my power...and crush you."

Chapter 17 (Azure Moon) and Chapter 17 (Verdant Wind) Edit

Vs. Byleth Edit

  • "I knew when next we met one of our paths would have to come to an end. Your journey ends here, Professor. Forever..."

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Claude: We haven't seen each other since Garreg Mach. You've grown lovelier than ever, Edelgard.
  • Edelgard: You're not so unfortunate yourself. And you have the aid of the professor. Frankly, I'm jealous. Now's the chance for you and the professor to leave.
  • Claude: I'm afraid I must decline. Even if we left, we'd just have to come right back.

Vs. Dimitri Edit

  • Dimitri: Stab your chest, break your neck, smash your head... I will allow you to choose your own death.
  • Edelgard: I'm not interested in methods of dying. All that matters is when death takes place, not how.
  • Edelgard: And I have no intention of dying today.
  • Dimitri: I'm sure all of the people you've slaughtered so far thought the same!

Chapter 19 (Silver Snow) and Chapter 20 (Verdant Wind) Edit

  • "So you're another of the goddess's vanguard. You don't have even a shred of self-awareness, do you? Come at me, so that I may put you out of your misery!"

Mid-Battle (Verdant Wind) Edit

  • Claude: Edelgard, give up! We don't want to kill you!
  • Edelgard: But... I must kill you. If I don't the righteous world which I dream of will never see the light. Come at me with everything you have. For one of us, this is the end!

Vs. Byleth Edit

  • Professor... I suppose you think you can defeat me. Is that right? But I will never give up. Even if my arms and legs failed me, I would still find a way to move forward. I will smash that false goddess and her minion into the ground! I will fight to free this world from her vile grasp!

Vs. Claude Edit

  • Edelgard: Your ideals, I understand they're not so far removed from my own. But without sufficient knowledge of this land's suffering, I can't entrust Fódlan to you!
  • Claude: Perhaps. I daresay it's true I don't fully understand the history of Fódlan. Still, I've seen many things in my life. Don't worry. I'll finish the job for you.

Vs. Constance Edit

  • Constance: What use are words? We are both set on our path.
  • Edelgard: How predictable. But so be it. I will now show you my true power!

Vs. Flayn Edit

  • Flayn: Edelgard! Please! Release Rhea... Release Fódlan!
  • Edelgard: If you strike me down, they will return. I cannot permit what you desire. You are a child of the goddess. You must not be allowed power over the people!

Vs. Lysithea Edit

  • Edelgard: " and I are so alike. We could have walked the same path."
  • Lysithea: "We're alike? ....You don't mean to tell can't be!"
  • Edelgard: "Yet now we're at the crossroads. There's no turning back. Must we fight each other for the things we believe in?"
  • Lysithea: "That's exactly what's going to happen. And I will defeat you, Edelgard!"

Vs. Recruited Black Eagle Edit

  • This has nothing do to with where you were born. That we are fighting now is only a result of the choices you've made. So I'm going to give that the response it deserves. I will crush you with everything I have!

Vs. Seteth Edit

  • Seteth: Edelgard! Return Rhea! Release your grip on Fódlan!
  • Edelgard: If you strike me down, they will return. I cannot permit what you desire. You are a child of the goddess. You must not be allowed power over the people!

Death Cutscene

  • Edelgard: It looks as though my path... will end here...
  • Edelgard:
  • Edelgard: I wanted... to walk with you.

Chapter 22 (Azure Moon) Edit

  • You shall be obliterated! I will take you out so fast you will not have a chance to lament...

Vs. Byleth Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

Choir Practice Edit

  • "Our voices are all over the place. We must learn to work together in harmony."

Cooking Edit

  • "I never had a chance to cook in Enbarr, so my skills are a bit... underdeveloped. This would go a lot quicker if I could just use an axe or a sword."

Dining Hall Edit

With Hubert Edit

No Support Level

  • Hubert: All I look for in a meal is a full stomach. You seem to be after something more than that, Lady Edelgard.
  • Edelgard: True. I feel that sharing a table with people you're close to is a precious opportunity that should never be taken for granted.

A Support

  • Hubert: Heh. When the three of us sit together like this at the table...
  • Edelgard: Let me guess, we look as though we're plotting something wicked? You realize you're mostly to blame for that.

With Ferdinand Edit

With Petra Edit

No Support Level

  • Edelgard: Do you miss the food of your homeland, Petra? I wish there was a way to get some for you.
  • Petra: I have gratitude for your kindness. But it is OK. I am liking the food of Fódlan.

B Support

  • Petra: Food of the palace is extravagant, but food of the battlefield is very plain. Are you finding it difficult to be adjusting?

Group Tasks Edit

With Hubert Edit
  • Edelgard: Being preoccupied with Imperial duties is no excuse.
  • Edelgard: Here at Garreg Mach, I must do my part as a member of the team.

Weeding Edit

Clearing Rubble Edit

With Hubert Edit
  • Edelgard: It's rather impressive how well we destroyed this place. Some areas are still useless.

Sky Watch Edit

With Hubert Edit
  • Hubert: No need to concern yourself with trivialities, Lady Edelgard. I will handle this.
