Narration Edit

Garland Moon

When the warm winds blow from the from the sea to the south of Adrestia, residents of Fodlan know that the rainy season is upon them. Before the heavy rains take their toll, the young women hurry to pick the last of the white roses. The ivory buds are woven into garlands and given as gifts to close friends or potential lovers.

Event: Rumors of a Rebellion Edit

Audience Chamber | Daytime

  • Rhea: Professor, I have a new mission for your students.
  • Seteth: We have received reports that Lord Lonato has rallied troops against the Holy Church of Seiros.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Who is Lord Lonato?
    • Choice 2: Why would he do that?
  • Rhea: Lord Lonato is a minor lord of the Kingdom. He has been showing hostility towards the church for some time now.
  • Seteth: A vanguard unit from the Knights of Seiros is already on its way to his stronghold, Castle Gaspard. Lord Lonato's army is nothing compared to the knights. It's quite possible the rebellion has already been suppressed.
  • Rhea: Even so, I would like for your class to travel with the knights' rear guard to deal with the aftermath.
  • Seteth: War zones are unpredictable. We do not expect you will have cause to battle, but be prepared for the worst.

(Catherine approaches Byleth, Rhea and Seteth)

  • Catherine: Excuse me. You sent for me, Lady Rhea?
  • Rhea: This is Catherine. She will be leading the knights whom you will be accompanying.
  • Catherine: Nice to meet you. We've heard a lot about you. If you need anything, just ask.
  • Rhea: She is one of our bravest knights, and that is no small feat. Only an exceptional few have what it takes to join the Knights of Seiros. This mission should prove useful in demonstrating to the students how foolish it would be to ever turn their blades on the church...

Monastery Exploration Edit

Sothis Edit

  • Sothis: You have spent quite some time in here, engaging in such idle chatter. Do you not know that we do not have a moment left to waste?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I had forgotten.
    • Choice 2: I should have listened more intently. (Relationship with Sothis up)
  • Sothis:
    • Choice 1 response: Forgotten? I don't believe that is the truth. No, it is more likely you were dreaming the whole day away. You must try harder from now on.
    • Choice 2 response: You must try harder from now on.

Edelgard Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Other routes Edit

Lord Lonato...

  • Edelgard: Lord Lonato must know that his efforts are futile...yet he can't help but fight. If I were in that situation, I would do whatever it took to ensure victory. You can count on that.

Dimitri Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

This rebellion...

  • Dimitri: Doubtless, there are times when one must take up their blade, even if there's no chance of winning. But this... It's downright senseless. Lord Lonato knows better. If he had enough allies to back his rebellion, it would be a different matter...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Allies?
    • Choice 2: How so?
  • Dimitri: Ah, my apologies. I was just thinking aloud. This whole situation is a bit too strange for my liking. Even with the necessary preparations in place, there is always a chance that something unexpected will occur. Please be ready for anything, Professor.

Other routes Edit

Claude Edit

Golden Deer route Edit

Other routes Edit

A rebellion...

  • Claude: Hey, Teach. There's some minor noble rebelling in Faerghus, right? He has no chance of winning. I wonder what he hopes to achieve... Huh? Are you going along to help? Sounds like an easy victory, but good luck out there.

Hubert Edit

Hmm...

  • Hubert: Something about this situation doesn't feel right. Why would a minor lord raise an army against a foe he cannot possibly hope to defeat?

Ferdinand Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Other routes Edit

A disgrace!

  • Ferdinand: I heard about your class's assignment, by the way. Good luck subduing those treasonous nobles!

Linhardt 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)
    • Choice 2: He must have a healthy appetite.
  • Linhardt:
    • Choice 1 response: Hence my mentioning it to you. Good luck with him.
    • Choice 2 response: If that is a polite way of calling him a goat, I'm inclined to agree.

Caspar Edit

That was delicious!

  • Caspar: Today's meal was delicious! Linhardt keeps bothering me about eating too fast. Says I'm gonna choke or something.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It's not safe to each so quickly.
    • Choice 2: When you're busy there's no alternative. (Relationship with Caspar up)
  • Caspar:
    • Choice 1 response: You're really gonna agree with that guy? Why is no one here on my side?
    • Choice 2 response: Absolutely! I knew you'd see things my way.

Bernadetta Edit

  • Bernadetta: ♪Hm hm-hm hm-hm... ♪ H-huh?! Um, is someone there? What do you want?

Dorothea Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Other routes Edit

This month's assignment...

  • Dorothea: Are you going to fight alongside the Knights of Seiros? Hmm... Let me know if you meet anyone I might be interested in, OK?

Petra Edit

That plant has strangeness...

  • Petra: This flower is one that is eating insects. Is that factual too? I am wondering who watches over the plants in Fódlan...

Dedue Edit

Your Highness...

  • Dedue: His Highness is strong. But on the front lines, anything can happen. Losing him would be devastating for Faerghus. I hope the church understands that.

Felix Edit

Thunder Catherine, hm?

  • Felix: Catherine, hm? Her skill is impressive, I'll admit. So is her sword. But I think she's hiding something. Nobody knows anything about her past. You should spar with her. She's strong. Stronger than you are, I'd bet.

Ashe Edit

This must be a mistake...

  • Ashe: Ngh... Please, Professor, there must be some mistake. Lonato would never raise arms against the church. At least, he never said anything to me about it.

Sylvain Edit

Where's Felix?

  • Sylvain: Professor, have you seen Felix around? I swear, as soon as you take your eyes off him–poof–he's gone.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I saw him at the training ground. (Relationship with Sylvain up)
    • Choice 2: I saw him at the dining hall.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Ah, of course he's there. Sorry for bothering you, Professor. Thanks!
    • Choice 2 response: Ah, right, it is meal time. Sorry for bothering you, Professor. Thanks!

Mercedes Edit

I wonder...

Conversation Edit

  • Mercedes: I've heard whispers about Lord Lonato. They say he is a very kind and gentle lord. Why would such a kind man suddenly raise an army? Oh, Professor. You were working late last night, weren't you? You shouldn't overdo it. A ghost might rise up from the well to get you if you stay you too late! Or so I'm told.

Quest Edit

  • Mercedes: Those who struggle with private concerns will sometimes visit the cathedral for guidance. If you have the time, why not offer your keen insight, Professor?
  • Mercedes: (Quest completion) Resolving other people's problems is difficult... You may be able to figure out what they're seeking if you become close enough to spend time alone with them.

Annette Edit

Could it be...

  • Annette: We're going on a mission with the knights, right? I wonder if... Oh... Sorry! It's nothing. I was just wondering if someone I've been searching for might be among them.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You're looking for a knight?
    • Choice 2: I hope you find whomever you're looking for. (Relationship with Annette up)
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: Yes. Well...maybe? If he's here, he's probably a knight. Though it's also possible he became a monk...
    • Choice 2 response: Thank you. I'm definitely going to find him one of these days!

Ingrid Edit

I don't understand...

  • Ingrid: Why does His Highness take the side of the people of Duscur? I just don't understand it. Only four years ago, they murdered our king and slaughtered the soldiers and knights who were with him, all of whom were innocent. Even if he can forgive them, I can't–not ever. What they've done is against all codes of honor and ethics.

Lorenz Edit

What foolishness.

  • Lorenz: It's a noble's duty to protect the commonfolk, not to endanger them by rallying armies in such a feckless and improper manner. Abuse of that kind is no better than slavery. A proper noble must guard the people from such a fate, wouldn't you say?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I agree. (Relationship with Lorenz up)
    • Choice 2: We don't know all the details yet.
  • Lorenz:
    • Choice 1 response: Precisely why true nobility is well respected.
    • Choice 2 response: There can be no legitimate cause for a noble to abandon that basic obligation. Let us put an end to this quickly.

Raphael Edit

Need...food...

  • Raphael: Hey, Professor! Do you happen to have any food on you? I'm starving! No matter how much I eat before I train, I'm always so hungry after. My muscles must be going through a growth spurt!

Ignatz Edit

Breathtaking!

  • Ignatz: This place has so many breathtaking works of art. I feel like I'm living in a museum. Each piece can teach us about styles and techniques from a thousand years ago!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Do you know a lot about art?
    • Choice 2: Do you like art? (Relationship with Ignatz up)
  • Ignatz:
    • Choice 1 response: I'm from a family of merchants, so I've been able to see a lot of art, but I won't pretend to be an expert.
    • Choice 1 response: Oh yes, very much. I'm from a family of merchants, so I've been able to see a lot of art.

Lysithea Edit

Hmm...

  • Lysithea: The monastery grounds are far too spread out. Feels like it takes hours to get from one area to another. And, no, that's not because I'm getting lost. I'm a fully capable, mature person! Who never gets lost.

Marianne Edit

Hello, Dorte...

  • Marianne: Oh. Hello, Professor... Um. Was there something you needed?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I came to see the horses. (Relationship with Marianne up)
    • Choice 2: I'm just looking around.
  • Marianne:
    • Choice 1 response: Oh! You like horses? I like them too. They're such kind creatures.
    • Choice 2 response: I see. I won't bother you, then...

Hilda Edit

Heya, Professor!

  • Hilda: Professor, your clothes are a bit dirty. I'd have expected you to be more careful, seeing as how you're a professor and all. I hate when my clothes get dirty. That's one of the many reasons I find it best to train as little as possible.

Leonie Edit

Someday...

  • Leonie: I'm studying here so I can be the best there is, just like Captain Jeralt. Do you think I've got it in me to be a top tier mercenary, Professor?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That depends on how hard you work.
    • Choice 2: You really want to bring the money in, huh? (Relationship with Leonie up)
  • Leonie:
    • Choice 1 response: I'm going to work a lot harder than all the fancy nobles around here, I can tell you that.
    • Choice 2 response: I do! Though, it's about so much more than being rich. It's about honor.

Flayn Edit

Such pretty flowers!

  • Flayn: If the flowers within the greenhouse are removed, they will soon wilt and whither... Is that not so, Professor? I feel I can empathize with them... The flowers. Flowers that thrive–despite their environment–are truly inspiring, are they not?

Jeritza Edit

Hmm...

Conversation Edit

  • Jeritza: What? I desired fresh air.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's not like you.
    • Choice 2: The wind feels nice.
  • Jeritza:
    • Choice 1 response: True...
    • Choice 2 response: Hmph.

Quest: Bolstering Forces Edit

  • Jeritza: There is solitude on the battlefield...but there are limits to what one can achieve alone. To be stronger, more efficient...visit the battalion guild.
  • Jeritza: (Quest completion) You went to the battalion guild... Track how your battalion and those of

others are faring... Although solitude is the true battle...

Rhea Edit

Punishing sinners...

  • Rhea: Pointing a sword at the Holy Church of Seiros is akin to pointing a sword at the goddess herself. Meting out appropriate punishments to the sinful... It is a sacred duty with which we have been entrusted. As a member of the church yourself, I hope that you will take that to heart.

Seteth Edit

I cannot overlook this.

  • Seteth: If you have a moment, I would like to have a word. It has been brought to my attention that certain individuals have been making advances towards Flayn. Have you witnessed any such behaviour?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Not at all.
    • Choice 2: Actually... (Relationship with Seteth up)
  • Seteth: If you see anything similar in the future, please inform the perpetrators of their peril.

Jeralt Edit

Castle Gaspard, eh?

Conversation Edit

  • Jeralt: Castle Gaspard, eh? I've been there once before. Many years ago... It was by request of the son of that family... Christophe, I think it was.

Quest Edit

  • Jeralt: Hey. It seems I've lost something. When you have a minute, can you help me look for it?
  • Jeralt: (Quest completion) That was helpful. Feels good, doesn't it? If you come across any more lost items, be sure to find their owner right away.

Alois Edit

Here is the Holy Mausoleum.

  • Alois: Past here is the Holy Mausoleum, where the saints of the Church of Seiros slumber. Sorry, but only a select few members of the church are allowed entry. It's open to the public on only one day of the year, for the Goddess's Rite of Rebirth.

Hanneman Edit

I can't believe that Manuela...

  • Hanneman: I'm sorry, but I must vent to someone, Professor. You're familiar with Manuel'as slovenly behaviour, yes? That woman! She borrowed a book last week and returned it with stains of unknown origin on the cover, and several pages either folded or torn. Just now, she dropped a sandwich on the floor, picked it up and kept eating. When she saw my shock, she said simply, "Three second rule." Ugh!

Manuela Edit

So utterly awful...

Conversation Edit

  • Manuela: Did you hear? There's news of someone in the Kingdom raising an army. The Kingdom, the Empire, the Alliance... They do love a good war, don't they? Spilling the blood of young men and women...and for what? Just to enjoy the horror of it?

Quest Edit

  • Manuela: It's extremely important that professors tend to their own studies as well. If you agree, I'd be more than happy to share my knowledge.
  • Manuela: (Quest completion) It's fun to learn like this, even as adults. How about we get others to join up as well? I'm sure they'll be elated to participate.

Tomas Edit

Hello, Professor.

  • Tomas: Professor, I heard that you may battle alongside Catherine. Even among the knights, she is something special...a holy knight who is able to wield a Hero's Relic. Still...she can be a mite difficult.

Catherine Edit

You're training too?

  • Catherine: Here to train? You really are as hardworking as they say.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's an overstatement. I'm just me.
    • Choice 2: That's right. I'm a force of nature.
  • Catherine:
    • Choice 1 response: Spoken like a true hard worker.
    • Choice 2 response: Huh. Maybe the gossip's wrong. Hardworking people usually don't like to make a big fuss about it.

Gatekeeper Edit

I hear it's amazing...

  • Gatekeeper: Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report! Have you talked with Catherine yet? If the knights are the cream of the crop, she's the cream of the cream. Oh, and that Relic of hers! I hear it's nothing short of amazing.

Knight of Seiros at the Marketplace Edit

There'll be some nice scenery.

  • Knight of Seiros: Since we're heading to Castle Gaspard, that means we'll be passing through Magdred Way. The road is well known for its beautiful surroundings. Depending on the time of year, it can be incredibly foggy, though. When it's like that you can't enjoy the incredible scenery. Lucky for us, it shouldn't be too foggy while we're there. Not that we'll have time for sightseeing anyway.

Knight of Seiros in the Entrance Hall Edit

It's none of my business, but...

  • Knight of Seiros: I hear that Lord Lonato served the king of Faerghus's older brother when he was younger. Or something like that. He already had status and prestige, so why raise a rebellion? Eh, I guess it's none of my business.

Knight of Seiros at the Knight's Hall Edit

I'm not ready!

  • Knight of Seiros: Catherine has invited me to train with her. How much do you think I should train before I'm ready to train with someone that strong?

Monk in the Cathedral Edit

Lord Lonato used to be different.

  • Monk: Lord Lonato... He used to stay at the monastery rather frequently. He was such as pious man. A true believer... Such a terrible shame. I wonder what changed him...

Pre-Battle Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

Event: Into the Fog (Blue Lions) Edit

Magdred Way | Daytime

  • Dimitri: I have to say... It's a real honor to accompany such a brave and distinguished knight. None other than Catherine, wielder of Thunderbrand!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Thunderbrand?
    • Choice 2: What are you talking about?

(Image of Thunderbrand)

  • Catherine: You mean you don't know? My weapon is called Thunderbrand. It's one of the Hero's Relics. A long, long time ago, the goddess bestowed divine weapons upon 10 heroes, which were passed down to their descendants. It's an honor to wield, but I'm afraid there won't be any chance for that today. Our mission is to help clean up the aftermath, not to fight.
  • Ashe: Why would Lonato incite such a reckless rebellion?
  • Catherine: You should know more about that than any of us, Ashe.
  • Ashe: Well, I don't. Lonato never mentioned anything of the like to me.
  • Dimitri: He probably didn't want you getting caught up in his own personal vendetta.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Is Ashe related to Lord Lonato?
      • Ashe: I'm Lonato's adopted son. He raised me as though I were his own blood. He was always so kind. I don't understand... I guess it has to do with Christophe.
    • Choice 2: What vendetta?
  • Catherine: How much do you know about the Tragedy of Duscur, Professor?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I've heard of it.
    • Choice 2: I don't know much about it.
  • Catherine: It's when the king of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus was...was murdered by the people of Duscur. It happened about four years ago... (Catherine looks at Dimitri)
  • Dimitri: It's OK, Catherine. Please, go on.
  • Catherine: Right. Well, Lord Lonato's son, Christophe, was accused of being involved in that whole awful affair. He was executed by the church.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: The church executes prisoners?
      • Catherine: Speaking from the church's perspective, we simply passed judgement according to our doctrine in place of the Kingdom, which was in complete chaos.
    • Choice 2: Why was the king targeted?
      • Dimitri: ...
      • Catherine: King Lambert was attempting a major political reform. Needless to say, he had many enemies.
  • Catherine: Whatever the truth behind that incident may be, Lord Lonato has harbored resentment to the church ever since. Well... To be more specific, his grudge isn't only against the church. It's also against the one who turned Christophe over to them...
  • Church Soldier: Report! The enemy is approaching! They can't be avoided. Their numbers are far greatly than we predicted. They used the fog to slip past the knights' perimeter!
  • Catherine: It looks like our mission just changed, Professor. Everyone, prepare for battle!

Golden Deer route Edit

Event: Into the Fog (Golden Deer) Edit

Magdred Way | Daytime

  • Claude: It really is an honor to accompany Catherine, wielder of Thunderbrand. I hear you're intimidating enough to silence the howling winds!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Thunderbrand?
    • Choice 2: What are you talking about?

(Image of Thunderbrand)

  • Catherine: You mean you don't know? My weapon is called Thunderbrand. It's one of the Hero's Relics. A long, long time ago, the goddess bestowed divine weapons upon 10 heroes, which were passed down to their descendants. It's an honor to wield, but I'm afraid there won't be any chance for that today. Our mission is to help clean up the aftermath, not to fight.
  • Claude: Why would Lonato incite such a reckless rebellion? He had to have known he had no chance of winning.
  • Catherine: It all goes back to the Tragedy of Duscur...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I've heard of it.
    • Choice 2: I don't know much about it.
  • Claude:
    • Choice 1 response: It happened about four years ago. The king of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus was murdered by the people of Duscur. That about covers it, right?
    • Choice 2 response: You must be joking. Where have you been traveling that news of it didn't reach you? It happened about four years ago. The king of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus was murdered by the people of Duscur. That about covers it, right?
  • Catherine: To put it simply, yes. But there's more to that story. They had accomplices within the Kingdom as well. Lord Lonato's son, Christophe, was one of them, and so he was handed over to the church for execution.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: The church executes criminals?
    • Choice 2: Why was the king targeted?
  • Catherine:
    • Choice 1 response: Speaking from the church's perspective, we simply passed judgement according to our doctrine in place of the Kingdom, which was in complete chaos.
    • Choice 2 response: King Lambert was attempting a major political reform. Needless to say, he had many enemies.
  • Catherine: Whatever the truth behind that incident may be, Lord Lonato has harbored resentment to the church ever since. Well... To be more specific, his grudge isn't only against the church. It's also against the one who turned Christophe over to them...
  • Church Soldier: Report! The enemy is approaching! They can't be avoided. Their numbers are far greatly than we predicted. They used the fog to slip past the knights' perimeter!
  • Catherine: It looks like our mission just changed, Professor. Everyone, prepare for battle!

Battle Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

Player Phase 1 Edit

  • Catherine: With this fog, it's impossible to tell where the enemy might be...or how many of them there are. The enemy could be trying to surround us, but they shouldn't have enough soldiers to form a tight circle. Take down anyone who breaks through the dog, and let's push through!
  • Dimitri: Shouting from within the fog... It seems the knights are already battling.
  • Catherine: Proceed with caution! Wait for them to enter your field of view.

Narration: You can earn a reward if your allies do not suffer heavy losses. Be careful not to let your allies flee!

First Militia attack Edit

  • Militia: Lord Lonato doesn't deserve such sadness and anger... Now it's your turn to suffer!
  • Ashe: Why, Lonato? Why did you drag so many others into this?

Second Militia attack Edit

  • Militia: You would think we're just gonna do nothing while you try to kill our lord?!

Gaspard Commander Edit

  • Gaspard Commander: I won't let you anywhere near Lord Lonato!

Narration: (Upon defeat of Gaspard Commander) The fog is lifting as a result of the Dark Mage being defeated! It seems the fog was being caused by magic.

(Movie: Hero's Relic plays)

Lonato Edit

  • Lonato: The fog has cleared. There's nothing left to hide you or the filthy Central Church from the judgement of the goddess!

Militia death after fog clears Edit

  • Militia: Lord Lonato... Please, don't die...
  • Dimitri: I am sorry... But did you really think you would get away with this?

Lonato Edit

When Catherine is within range Edit
  • Lonato: You! I will be the one to kill you, no other!
  • Catherine: You have lost all sense of justice. You want to fight me? So be it. I'll send you to meet your goddess.
If facing Ashe Edit
  • Lonato: Stand down, Ashe. I must destroy these evil-doers by any means necessary!
  • Ashe: Please surrender, Lonato! Whatever your reason for doing this, we can still talk it out!
  • Lonato: Rhea is an infidel who has deceived the people and desecrated the goddess! We have virtue and the goddess herself on our side!
  • Ashe: Even if all that's true, dragging the townsfolk into it like this isn't right!
  • Lonato: Enough. If that is how you feel, prepare yourself! I'm putting an end to this!
If facing Dimitri Edit
  • Lonato: I apologize, Your Highness. It is regrettable that we should cross swords like this.
  • Dimitri: Lonato, I sympathesize with your position. I really do. I have no wish to kill you, but I am afraid you have left me no choice. Please...forgive me.
  • Lonato: Your Highness... I cannot stop here. For my child, and for the people of Fodlan. If you will not stand aside, then I have no choice but to cut you down.
If facing other members of the Blue Lions Edit
  • Lonato: You have been decieved by that witch... I will show you the truth!

Lonato's defeat Edit

  • Lonato: That vile woman... Christophe... Forgive me...
  • Ashe: Lonato, I...
  • Catherine: I never thought I'd see Lonato meet this fate. Well done, everyone. Let's gather our troops and go.

Golden Deer route Edit

Post-Battle Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

Event: A Harsh Reality (Blue Lions) Edit

  • Ashe: Why... Why did this happen? Lonato was always such a kind man... Everyone in the village was...was so nice to me. And I...I killed them. I killed them all! I had to, I know I had to... I know that! But still... What does that make me?
  • Dimitri: Please, don't beat yourself up, Ashe. We did what had to be done.
  • Ashe: I'm...I'm sorry. I shouldn't be bothering you. I'm...I'm going to check on the town. I hope my brother and sister are OK. (Ashe quickly leaves)
  • Dimitri: That...that was my first time killing civilians too... Those who I'm sworn to protect.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It was a necessary sacrifice.
    • Choice 2: That is the reality of war.
  • Dimitri: Are you insane?! Those weren't knights or soldiers, but fathers and sons! We...we shouldn't have killed them. We should have found another way... I...I'm sorry. It's not fair for me to blame you for the circumstance. I know that if we hadn't...done what we did, even more civilian lives would have been lost. At least, my mind understands that. But...my heart... Professor... Those in power, no matter the era, always claim they fight for a just cause. That they take life to protect it. But... Is it truly OK to take any life you please, all in service of some implacable "just cause"? Lord Lonato didn't take up arms out of a lust for power. He simply believed his cause to be just. Who's to say it wasn't? Maybe we didn't have to cut him down like that. Maybe we could have reached a mutual understanding...found a path of peace. I...I have to believe that. Perhaps the notion sounds laughable to you. Mere lip service to naive ideals. But I can't believe otherwise.

(Catherine joins Byleth and Dimitri)

  • Catherine: Sorry to intrude, but this incident may be more serious than anticipated.

(Image of a sealed scroll)

  • Catherine: I found this on Lord Lonato. It's a note that mentions a plan to assassinate Lady Rhea. We can't tell who sent it, so the source is suspect, but the content is too disturbing to ignore. We must report this to Lady Rhea right away. I hope that it's nothing...

Golden Deer route Edit

Report: Garland Moon Edit

Audience Chamber | Daytime

  • Rhea: I am glad to see that you have returned safely. The goddess is gracious with her divine protection. But it was not only her divine protection that shielded you, was it? You are just as skilled as I had hoped.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: My students deserve the praise.
    • Choice 2: I still have much to learn.
  • Rhea:
    • Choice 1 response: I am not so sure.
    • Choice 2 response: There is no need for modesty.
  • Rhea: I heard some of the students were...hesitant about fighting militia. However, we must punish any sinner who may inflict harm upon believers, even if those sinners are civilians. I pray the students learned a valuable lesson about the fate that awaits all who are foolish enough to point their blades towards the heavens.
  • Seteth: Our real concern is what Catherine reported. The secret message that was in Lord Lonato's possession. It contained a deplorable plot to target the archbishop on the day of the Goddess's Rite of Rebirth. The plan seems unrealistic at best... But a threat is a threat. We must maintain constant vigilance. To that end, I would like for you and your students to help with security on the day of the ritual.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You can count on us.
    • Choice 2: We won't let her down. (Relationship with Rhea up)
    • Choice 3: Won't that endanger the students?
  • Rhea:
