Chapter Quotes Edit

White Clouds Chapter 1: Three Houses Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

Caspar: Is it true?

Linhardt: Need more sleep...

  • Caspar: Is it true that you saved Edelgard? That's incredible! The name's Caspar, by the way. Pleased to meet ya!
  • Linhardt: Linhardt. Good-bye.
  • Caspar: Yeesh, Linhardt. How'd you get into the academy with those manners? So, are you a student here too? Maybe we'll be in the same class!

Nice weather for a nap.

  • Linhardt: (yawns) The Great Tree Moon is the best time of the year for naps. I could just forget all about my assignment...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's not a good idea.
    • Choice 2: Now I'm feeling sleepy too... (Relationship with Linhardt up)
  • Linhardt: Yeah... (snores)

White Clouds Chapter 2: Familiar Scenery Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

Is there anywhere better than a library?

  • Linhardt: Swimming through a sea of countless books, tracking down that single sought-after volume... It's absolute bliss. How do the poor fools who spend their days sharpening swords and polishing armor find any joy in life?

First kill Edit

  • I... killed them. What have I done? The blood...

White Clouds Chapter 3: Mutiny in the Mist Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

I suppose chewing is too much effort?

  • Linhardt: Professor, I feel I must speak to you about Caspar's eating habits. I've never seen the likes of it. He inhales entire plates of food in mere seconds.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Sounds unhealthy. (Relationship with Linhardt up)
      • Linhardt: Hence my mentioning it to you. Good luck with him.
    • Choice 2: He must have a healthy appetite.
      • Linhardt: If that is a polite way of calling him a goat, I'm inclined to agree.

Chapter 20 (Azure Moon) and Chapter 18 (Verdant Wind) Edit

Battle Quote Edit

“I'd rather not fight, yet avoiding it is more frustrating and fruitless than engaging in the battle itself.”
—Linhardt's pre-battle quote

Vs. Byleth Edit

“Ever since returning to the Empire, I knew this day would arrive. I just hoped it might take a bit longer. Ugh...”
—Linhardt's pre-battle quote against Byleth

Vs. Caspar Edit

  • Caspar: Looks like we ended up on opposing sides, Linhardt!
  • Linhardt: Certainly seems that way. I could almost weep over how things turned out. Do you realize, Caspar, that this is the first time we've ever fought?
  • Caspar: Yeah, I think you're right. The first and probably the last!

Death Quote Edit

“I hope someday there will be no fighting and we can all just... nap the afternoon away...”
—Linhardt's death quote

Paralogue: Legend of the Lake Edit

Vs The Immovable Edit

  • Linhardt: We'll fight, but your form and mannerisms suggest that you may be...
  • The Immovable: If you want your wish to be granted, it is better that you fight me in ignorance.

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

Choir Practice Edit

  • "I may sound terrible, but you won't notice when everyone else sings, too."

Cooking Edit

  • "I'll be most useful as a taste tester. The rest is all you, Professor. Oh I'm just kidding."
  • "You'll find it turns out best if you just follow the recipe until the food is done. Easy."

Counselor Edit

  • "I've slept almost everywhere in this monastery, but lately I've been wanting to try sleeping outdoors. Do you know somewhere I could sleep under the stars?"
    • Good answer: A courtyard full of blooming flowers.
  • "I'm an only child. Because of this, I'm worried that my parents will have to adopt a child or do their best to have another of their own if I don't carry on the family title."
    • Good answer: Relax. You can think it over before you graduate.
  • "I used to think it foolish to cover one's face in battle with a mask or helmet, but it actually may not be that bad. It means you don't have to look your opponent in the eye." (war phase)
    • Good answer: Never turn a blind eye to your own actions.
  • "In the past, I would nearly pass out if I got splattered by an enemy's blood. Nowadays I remain entirely conscious, even if my face is drenched in blood. It's disgusting." (war phase)
    • Good answer: It's natural to feel repelled by the horrors of war.

Dining Hall Edit

  • You know, sometimes I forget to eat. Does that ever happen to you, Professor?"
  • "This is my favorite. I am rather happy that you went out of your way to pick it, Professor." (Favorite dish)
  • "Should I be less picky about what I eat, or should we just find better food?" (Disliked dish)

With Caspar Edit

No support:

  • Caspar: Yeah! it's eating time! Come on, let's dig in!
  • Linhardt: Caspar, do develop table manners. Begin by chewing with your mouth closed, especially when I'm around.

Unknown support:

  • Linhardt: You never know if each meal together might be our last. I try to treasure these moments.
  • Caspar: I get what you're saying, but you shouldn't be so grim! Let's survive so we can keep eating together!

With Marianne Edit

No support level:

  • Marianne: Um, I find it difficult to eat when you stare...
  • Linhardt: My apologies. You and the professor are both so fascinating... I simply cannot help myself.

A support level:

  • Linhardt: Marianne, are you going to finish eating that? May I have it? For research...
  • Marianne: Please don't say such bizarre things in front of the professor...

With Hapi Edit

C Support
