      • "Well, well! It must be my lucky day today, being approached by such a beauty. I'm Sylvain Jose Gautier. Feel free to say hi whenever you like."
    • Male Byleth
      • "Hey there. Are you the mercenary who saved His Highness? It's an honor to meet you. I'm Sylvain Jose Gautier. Feel free to say hi whenever you like."
  • Second conversation
    • "Well, there's Dorothea, Hilda, and Mercedes. Lady Rhea's quite the beauty too. And I must admit, I've even checked out Professor Manuela once or twice. You know, Professor, I think I'm going to like it at the Officer's Academy. There are beautiful girls as far as the eye can see...
  • Share a Bite quest
    • "If I have to eat in that filthy dining hall, I prefer to invite a cute girl to dine with me. Beforehand, I'll find out her favorite foods so I can order them. She's happy, I'm happy. I haven't missed a move! Pretty great, huh?"
    • "Heh, so you're getting right to it! I'm impressed to find someone who's more proactive than I am. Nice going, Professor. All right, then. Next time will be my turn!" (quest completed)

Three Houses (Chapter)/Script

White Clouds Chapter 2: Familiar Scenery Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

Blue Lions/Sylvain recruited

  • "Our first assignment is to take out some bandits? Did anyone tell Lady Rhea that people's lives are at stake? I lost my own brother to bandits......Is something someone has said at some point, I'm sure. OK. Not my finest attempt at humor."

Not recruited

  • "Professor, you're the one taking out the bandits? Heh, that's one way to start your career at the academy. I didn't expect they'd order us to risk our lives here. Seems a bit extreme, doesn't it?"

A True Battle Edit

Familiar Scenery/Script

Red Canyon Dominance (Mission) Edit

  • "I had to do it. Don't hate me, please." (first kill)

White Clouds Chapter 3: Mutiny in the Mist Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • First conversation
    • 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. (raises support with Sylvain)
      • 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!
  • Second conversation
    • "Don't you love looking after horses? I do. They repay your absolute love and trust with the same. I wish girls were so easy to deal with..."

White Clouds Chapter 4: The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "No classes on a festival day! I thought I'd get to spend all day relaxing in the company of some lovely ladies, but now this mess has happened. Hey, Professor, I know there's talk of an assassination attempt, but do you really think they'll do it on the day of the Rite of Rebirth. I feel like security would be looser some other time. Is there some reason why it has to happen on that day?"

White Clouds Chapter 5: Tower of Black Winds Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I can't believe my own brother is the leader of the bandits. House Gautier is my true home...and his. Please, Professor. He really is one of the worst people I've ever known, but we still... We share the same blood. We're still family.

The Gautier Inheritance (Mission) Edit

  • "Don't hold back for my sake. My brother is going to pay for everything he's done." (mission start)
  • Vs. Miklan
    • Miklan: Why have you come, you Crest-bearing fool?
    • Sylvain: I'm here for the Lance of Ruin, Miklan. Hand it over. I don't want to humiliate you, but I will.
    • Miklan: Hmph! Hurry up and die already. If not for you... If it hadn't been for you...
    • Sylvain: Shut up! I'm so tired of hearing that. You've always blamed me for something that isn't my fault.
    • Miklan: So you think you can take the lance from me, huh? I'll kill you... I'll kill every last one of you!
  • "What the-Miklan?! Is that you?!" (battle start, after Miklan's transformation into the Black Beast)
  • "What is that?! It's like watching a bad dream come to life." (Vs. Black Beast)
  • " brother..." (after Black Beast is defeated)

White Clouds Chapter 6: Rumors of a Reaper Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Ow! Ingrid just about slapped the teeth out of my head. All I did was suggest that Flayn might've eloped...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Quite an insensitive joke.
    • Choice 2: Is that a possibility? (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Insensitive? I was just exploring possibilities!
    • Choice 2 response: I don't know. I was just suggesting things, then suddenly I was seeing stars and Ingrid was yelling at me.

White Clouds Chapter 7: Field of the Eagle and Lion Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: After all, the ladies love nothing more than a winner. And around here, there's no bigger game.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's the wrong reason to compete.
    • Choice 2: I'm sure they do. (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Everyone has their own reason to fight. At least I'm honest about mine.
    • Choice 2 response: I knew you'd understand, Professor.

The Forgotten (Paralogue) Edit

  • Pre-mission cutscene
    • Sylvain:
      • Female Byleth: Hey, Professor. You're looking lovely as ever.
      • Male Byleth: Hey, Professor. How's life treating ya?
    • Sylvain: Are you working today? You gotta take a day sometime. Get out in the world and have some fun.
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: That's not a bad idea.
      • Choice 2: I could never...
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 1 response: Right? Sometimes you gotta forget all the things you oughta do and focus on what you'd rather do. Hey, we should go get something to eat. My treat.
      • Choice 2 response: Aw, come on, Professor. Let me buy you something to eat. Relax for a couple of hours at least
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: No, thank you.
      • Choice 2: What are you after?
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 1 response: Ah, fine. You're missing out though.
      • Choice 2 response: What? I can't invite my professor to dinner without it being a scam? Heh! I...ah... OK, fine. You got me.
    • Sylvain: I need to ask a favor, and I wanted a way to work up the courage to ask you.
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: Ask me what?
      • Choice 2: Is this about a girl?
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 2 response: No, for once it's not about a girl.
    • Sylvain: There are thieves in my family's territory. I was wondering if you'd go with me to drive 'em off. You remember the thief leader you fought at Conand Tower, yeah?
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: Your brother?
      • Choice 2: Miklan?
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 1 response: Yes, Miklan. He was the oldest son of House Gautier.
      • Choice 2 response: That's right. Although he's dead now...
    • Sylvain: What's left of his band of thieves is causing trouble in Gautier territory. My father has asked me to come home and put down those murderous jerks. But he's asked for me to come alone-no knights, no backup of any sort. That's crazy, right?
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: Yes, that's crazy.
      • Choice 2: Why just you?
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 2 response: Because he thinks he'd lose face asking the church for help. I don't know. He could have asked another trusted house to send troops, but he only asked me.
    • Sylvain: And the way my father is...he probably has some other motive that I'll never know. Maybe he just wants me to get some more experience in battle. Crazy way to suggest it though. Anyway, I'm not going alone, no matter what he asks. I'm going to ask some of the others in our class for help too. But none of us have your experience. If you'd come with us, I'd be grateful.
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: Of course. (Begin Paralogue battle)
      • Choice 2: I can't right now. (Return to previous screen)
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 1 response: Great! I'll talk to the others and see who's in. Thanks, Professor!
      • Choice 2 response: OK. I understand. I did kind of just drop that question on you, huh? If you change your mind though, let me know. I'll be around for a bit.
  • "OK, we've got the thieves covered on both sides. Some of the thieves are still carrying what they stole, so we have a chance to get it back. Gotta be careful though. They'll run off faster than a nobleman's daughter if we just rush in. Target the strongholds to cut off their escape routes. My father's offering a reward for every thief and rogue we take out. The more you beat, the more you get. Just remember, you gotta take them down fast. They'll bolt as soon as they're hurt. Take the strongholds and we cut off their escape route." (mission start)
  • Vs. Thief Leaders
    • Thief Leader: Hey, I know that face. You're the boss's little bro, right?
    • Sylvain: I'm sorry to say it, but yeah, I'm his brother. And he's led you into a bad spot. Anyway, your boss is dead. So this is your chance to disband this little thief gang of yours.
    • Thief Leader: Quiet, fool! You think I have any other choice but to be a thief?
    • Sylvain: Well, it's probably on me for making such a stupid request.
  • "OK, that'll do it. This exit route is blocked off." (stronghold taken by Sylvain)
  • "Very good. Now, let's keep cool and take out the other strongholds." (first stronghold taken)
  • "That's one more stronghold taken and one more escape route blocked. There are still some strongholds left, Professor, which should we go for first?" (second stronghold taken)
  • "Another escape route blocked. We're nearly done! Take out those thieves, and capture that last stronghold." (third stronghold taken)
  • "Ugh, they're getting away! If only we'd taken the stronghold out in time." (thief escaped)
  • "Professor, are you letting them get away? Come on, we gotta block off their escape routes!" (half of thieves escaped)
  • "Damn. They all got away. These guys are pretty light on their feet, huh? Probably not much reward to look forward to now, but whatever we get, we can split up." (all thieves escaped)
  • "That's the last of them. Great work, everyone. Thieves everywhere... I can't believe this is what the world is coming to. At least we've restored the peace here, even if it's only just for a little while." (map cleared)
  • Post-mission cutscene
    • Sylvain: Professor, thank you for your help. We drove off the thieves and got a reward from my father. Job well done, eh? Although, I don't know how I feel about this particular reward. I guess that's why my father tasked me with this mission. He wanted me to prove myself worthy of this Relic. This weapon, the Lance of Ruin... It killed my brother, and now it's mine.
    • Byleth: Isn't that dangerous?
    • Sylvain: Not remotely. I bear the Crest of Gautier. The same Crest my brother wished for his whole life but never came to possess.
    • Byleth: You're still thinking about your brother, aren't you?
    • Sylvain: I suppose I am... Miklan hated me from the moment he found out I had a Crest and he didn't. He was selfish and egotistical. I know it's not right to say bad things about the dead, but he earned it. Even now, I'm still cleaning up his messes. I have to wonder though... What if it was the other way around? If he had the Crest and I didn't... Would I be the one my father thought was worth forgetting? Or would my fate have been wholly unlike his?
    • Byleth: Thinking like that won't get you anywhere.
    • Sylvain: You're probably right, Professor. It's not like me, is it? I don't pray much...but I think I'm going to pray for those who lost their lives to the thieves tonight. And for all of us. I'm afraid there are more days like these coming our way.
    • Byleth: Why do you say that?
    • Sylvain: Faerghus has always been a cold place. Never very well-to-do. Until about 10 years ago, our region was a battlefield for the people of the Sreng Region to the north. And after the late king fell, the whole Kingdom became unstable. So it's no real surprise that more and more people are resorting to thievery just to survive. And there are those rumors of the current regent being too busy chasing the ladies to bother with governing. Don't worry, I get the irony. The whole damn Kingdom is in decline because of nonsense like that. I'm hoping once we get Dimitri on the throne everything will get better. Anyway, I'll leave it up to you to decide how you want to use our reward. Including the Lance of Ruin. I know I can trust you with it until you think I'm ready. And, Professor, if I could, I'd still like to buy you a meal sometime.
    • Byleth:
      • Choice 1: There's no need.
      • Choice 2: You have another favor to ask?
    • Sylvain:
      • Choice 1 response: Or do you just really hate the idea of having dinner with me? Just kidding! I know you're busy.
      • Choice 2 response: No, I'm just asking a friend to hang out, that's all.
    • Sylvain: Again though, thank you for everything, Professor. I couldn't have done it alone.

Field of Three Edit

  • "If I emerge victorious in the lauded Battle of the Eagle and Lion, the ladies are sure to take notice. I'll have to go into hiding."

Trust in the Professor Edit

  • "Getting cozy, are we? Mind if I cut in?"

White Clouds Chapter 8: The Flame in the Darkness Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I wonder how Remire Village is faring. Hopefully we're not dealing with some new epidemic. It wouldn't be unheard of. Almost 20 years ago, a terrible plague blazed through Faerghus. It even hit the capital city, taking the queen consort's life...or so I heard. The whole Kingdom was in an uproar over that loss. The person who saved the Kingdom wasn't a doctor but a holy woman-the fair Lady Cornelia. After that, she was awarded the honor of being a mage in the service of the royal family. She sounds like an amazing woman, but... She must be pretty old by now. But hey, maybe she's aged like a fine wine."

Village Tragedy Edit

  • "Slow down, Annette. It won't do anyone any good if we panic and get injured ourselves."

White Clouds Chapter 9: The Cause of Sorrow Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "Great work in Remire Village, Professor. Who would have ever guessed it was Tomas? Ah, but no. Now isn't the time to get lost in gloomy thoughts."
  • "The ball is almost here...and the White Heron Cup dance contest. So, Professor, who'll be representing our class?" (choosing class representative for the Cup)
    • "Me? Uh, sure! Why not? I'll get out there, show off my moves, and drive ladies wild." (chosen)
    • "I get it. No worries, really. I'd rather see a beautiful person dancing instead of some goof like me." (not chosen)
  • "Oh, Professor! I'm glad you're here. I need help figuring out this whole...dancing thing. Mind helping me?" (chosen as representative, asking for dance help)
    • "Aw, don't be like that, Professor. You chose me... You should help me win." (refuse to help)
    • "One and two and three and four... Got it! I'm pretty good at this." (dance lesson completed)
    • "Heh heh heh! I knew I had it in me!" (White Heron Cup won)

A Night of Promises Edit

Garreg Mach Ball/Script

The Goddess Tower Edit

  • Sylvain: Evening, Professor. Lovely night, isn't it? Just look at those stars... I heard you were headed over to the Goddess Tower, and I got curious about who you might be meeting. But here you are all by yourself. This isn't a lover's tryst at all! Heh heh...
  • Byleth: Tryst?
  • Sylvain: Oh, yeah. The Goddess Tower is where lovers meet. Didn't anybody tell you? They say that if you exchange vows here, they always come true. It's a sacred place for lovers.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Why are you here alone?
    • Choice 2: Where is your lover?
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: To tell the truth, I got curious about who you might be coming here to meet. I know this sounds weird, but . I'm relieved to find you here alone.
    • Choice 2 response: Well, the person I'm interested already here.
  • Sylvain: You're here alone. I'm here alone. I was thinking maybe...
  • Byleth: Wait. Me?
  • Sylvain: Well, of course! We're the only two people here, aren't we? I keep thinking about it, and it just makes sense. My Crest and yours...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's too much, too soon.
    • Choice 2: Marry you? I can't even trust you.
  • Sylvain: Heh, OK. True, true. You know, I've never regretted any of my past behavior...until you turned me down just now. I can't be who I've been my whole life. I gotta get it together and be a man you can trust. I know that sounds like another one of my games, but it's true. I'll prove it to you. Anyway, I'm going to head back to the ball. Since we're both here, would you accompany me?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I'll go back with you.
    • Choice 2: I'm going to stay here for a while.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Well then, my lady, I do hope you'll give me the honor of a dance. It will be good practice for our first dance at our wedding reception. Heh heh-I'm kidding! Anyway... Let's get going before you change your mind.
    • Choice 2 response: It's chilly out tonight, so take care not to catch (a) cold. And if you do get cold, you know where to find me. Sorry. Old habits die hard, I guess... OK. Well, I'm headed inside.

(Note: in-game he literally says "catch cold", however this is presumably a grammar/spelling error)

Paralogue: The Forgotten Edit

Vs Thief Leader Edit

  • Thief Leader: Hey, I know that face. You're the boss's little bro, right?
  • Sylvain: I'm sorry to say it, but yeah, I'm his brother. And he's led you in a bad spot. Anyway, your boss is dead. So this is your chance to disband this little thief gang of yours.
  • Thief Leader: Quiet, fool! You think I have any other choice but to be a thief?
  • Sylvain: Well, it's probably on me for making such a stupid request.

White Clouds Chapter 10: Where the Goddess Dwells Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Dark expressions don't suit you, Professor. But I'm... Well, I'm glad to see you in the world again. It seems this month will be a quiet on around here. There aren't many knights around to liven things up.
  • Felix: Most of the knights are gone, seeking out the enemy.
  • Sylvain: Isn't that a bit much? I agree it's important, but is it a good idea to neglect the safety of the monastery?
  • Felix: What do you think, Professor?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It would be a shame if we were invaded.
    • Choice 2: You're worrying too much.
  • Felix:
    • Choice 1 response: I agree. We can send some knights after our enemies, but so many? It makes the church seem reckless.

The Sealed Forest Edit

  • "Fighting Tomas... It will be difficult, that's for certain."

White Clouds Chapter 11: Throne of Knowledge Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: I swear it's like you're an entirely different person.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I haven't changed on the inside.
    • Choice 2: Isn't it weird? (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Heh, I guess you're right. If I look hard, I can still tell it's you.
    • Choice 2 response: It's not weird at all. It's... You're somehow even more beautiful than before. I'm joking! I'm joking! Don't get mad.

Deep Underground Edit

  • "If you keep saying things like that, something bad is bound to happen."

The Holy Tomb Edit

  • "Even the Flame Emperor is here. That can only mean..."

Whispers of War Edit

  • "I knew he'd been carrying the burden of that tragedy. I understand his thirst for revenge. His family and closest friends...all massacred right in front of him. still doesn't add up. There must be more that we don't know."
  • "We knew this day would come, sooner or later."
  • "Settle yourself, Ingrid. We need to carefully consider our options."

White Clouds Chapter 12: To War Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Things must be pretty crazy in Faerghus about now. My father must be beside himself. I don't get it. Why did Edelgard make enemies with the nobles?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I have no idea. (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: For the sake of her ideals?
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Me either... Of course, even if we did get it, what do we do about it?
    • Choice 2 response: Ideals she believes in so much she was willing to start a war over them? Those must be some lofty ideals, to say the least.
  • Sylvain: I hope this all gets sorted out quickly and safely. I'm worried about my father.

To War Edit

  • "Hm, I should have made a move on the Imperial princess before things got this far. It could have changed everything."

White Clouds Chapter 12: Outset of a Power StruggleEdit

Encampment Edit

  • "I've gone and done it now, huh? What would my old man say if he knew I'd sided with the Empire? His Highness must be angry. Dimitri gets super scary when he's like that. I wonder how I'm going to die... Ugh, my knees turn to jelly just thinking about it. No, I can't think that way. I promised to fight alongside you. I'm here until the end. Heh, listen to me. I'm terrified, but I feel so calm."

Azure Moon Chapter 13: Reunion at Dawn Edit

Hunting by Daybreak (Mission) Edit

  • "The monastery has become a nest of thieves."
  • "Professor! Has it really been five years? You're as pretty as ever, and that's the only thing that matters." (talk with Sylvain during the battle)

The Fallen Monastery Edit

    • "Well, it's not like all of the Kingdom's lords have sided with the Empire. There are plenty of houses, like mine and Felix's that remain stubbornly opposed."
    • "She's right. In fact, why don't we all join forces and clean this place up a bit?"

Azure Moon Chapter 14: The Delusional Prince Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "Hey, Professor. It's been a while. It's really good to see you again. Gorgeous as ever, might I add. An awful lot has happened in these past five years. There were so many times I wished you were around. I'm glad you're back. Your skills are worth more than a whole army."

War Council: Guardian Moon Edit

  • "It's a miracle we managed to repel the Imperial army with the few units and resources we do have."
  • "Just give it up already. Wasting time thinking about stuff like that will only dull your blade."

Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 15: Valley of Torment Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Ailell, the Valley of Torment. Aw, man... I really do not want to go there.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Pull yourself together.
    • Choice 2: Why not? (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Professor, have you ever been to Ailell? If you had, you'd know.
  • Sylvain: That place is crazy hot! For guys like me who grew up somewhere cold? Man... It's gonna be rough. Though, I guess that climate will keep our enemies at bay.

Valley of Torment (Azure Moon ver.) Edit

  • "Historically, there have been battles whose outcomes were determined in part by the climate. You can't argue that this heat isn't a factor."

Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 16: The Rose-Colored River Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I had an encounter with Lord Gwendal... How many years ago was it? Back before the academy, I met this girl who I fell madly in love with...and her dad tried to kill me. I suppose he just tried to scare me, but I was sure I was gonna die. Oh yeah, her dad? Lord Gwendal. Crazy, right? I never thought I'd seriously be trying to kill the guy in battle. I kind of don't know how to make sense of it.

Azure Moon Chapter 17: Blood of the Eagle and Lion Edit

Field of Destiny Edit

  • "Why not march up to Her Majesty and remind her of that? Oh, that's right...because you want to live to see tomorrow."

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Say we do manage to take down Edelgard here... What do you think His Highness will do next? As long as there's a plan, I won't complain. I just, you know, wanna know there is a plan.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Continue on to the Imperial capital?
    • Choice 2: Head to the Kingdom capital first?
    • Choice 3: I don't know...
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Yeah, I suppose that's the most likely plan since we're traveling with the church and everything.
    • Choice 2 response: Heh, well, I'd be happy if that were the case, but I don't figure that'll actually happen. All this isn't just gonna magically end the moment we kill Edelgard. It's gone too far.
    • Choice 3 response: Heh, well, if even you can't say, I guess it's not surprising the rest of us don't know either.
  • Sylvain: I suppose we should focus on the battle right in front of us instead of what happens later.

Azure Moon Chapter 18: The King's Triumphant Return Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I don't feel like I can just forget all the awful stuff he's done... But if His Highness is owning up to his past, and trying to move forward... I figure I can give him that chance. We've been friends since we were kids. I'm gonna be there for him all the way to the end."

Azure Moon Chapter 19: The Golden Deer's Plea Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Derdriu, the Aquatic Capital... I've heard it's a magnificent city, you know. If we're going, I wish it wasn't to wage war. It'd be more fun to visit with a cute girl on my arm.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Maybe once the war is over... (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: Forget it.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Yeah? Maybe you and me? That'd be a good reason to survive the war. Heh heh...
    • Choice 2 response: Aw, come on. Let a guy dream.

Resolve Edit

  • Sylvain: Wait! I remember now! She was that girl, wasn't she? The one you gave a dagger to! Heh, so your little girlfriend was Edelgard."
  • Dimitri: Sylvain. If you have any more foolish things to say, please hold them for later.
  • Sylvain: I do have a few more up my sleeve, but they can wait. Go on, Your Highness. This is important for us to hear.

Azure Moon Chapter 20: The Impregnable Fortress Edit

The Impregnable Fortress Edit

  • "In other words, if we take this fort, then our blades will be at the emperor's throat in no time."

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Ya know, Professor, laying siege to a keep is like asking a girl out on a date. First, you get past her defenses...then you make your move.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's not the best analogy.
    • Choice 2: You might be right (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. I'm a seasoned veteran at this kind of thing. Girls, I mean. I've never actually, you know, captured any keeps...
    • Choice 2 response: See? You get it. Our fearless leader on the other hand... He's never been good with the ladies.
  • Sylvain: Anyway, I figure you go after the main gate. You take that out and I'm sure we can win. Of course, you're making the tactical calls. I'm happier to follow than to lead.

War Council: Blue Sea Moon Edit

  • "Whaddaya know... My old man is really pulling his weight. Did he seem well?

Azure Moon Chapter 21: Our Chosen Paths Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I've been thinking about how we've got our own ideas about justice...and so does the Empire. And what's coming, it's not just a battle between us and them. It's our ideals that are fighting. Whoever wins say they were right and the other side was wrong. And I get it. That's how it goes... But nobody's willing to talk or compromise, so we'll fight to the death to prove the other guy's wrong. It won't be an easy battle, but let's make sure we come back alive. Right, Professor?"

The Imperial Palace Edit

  • "Heh heh heh, is this what a do-or-die situation looks like? You had best give it your all too, General.

Azure Moon Chapter 22: Oath of the Dagger Edit

Oil and Water Edit

  • "Well, if I were to die now, I'd have a lot to explain to my brother."

Crimson Flower Chapter 13: Beyond Escape Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "Hey, Professor. It's been a really long time, hasn't it? The last five years have been full of heartbreak-not from girls...but friends and family becoming enemies. One of the things that kept me going was the hope you'd return, and now here you are. A lot has changed, but you're back, and it's the first time I can remember being happy in a while."

Crimson Flower Chapter 14: Master Tactician Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Derdriu, the Aquatic Capital... I've heard it's a magnificent city, you know. If we're going, I wish it wasn't to wage war. It'd be more fun to visit with a cute girl on my arm.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Maybe once the war is over... (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: Forget it.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Yeah? Maybe you and me? That'd be a good reason to survive the war. Heh heh...
    • Choice 2 response: Aw, come on. Let a guy dream.

Crimson Flower Chapter 15: Tempest of Swords and Shields Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: First Leicester and next Faerghus? Ah, that'll be really tough. Look, Professor... Fighting Faerghus? Isn't there some way we can come to an understanding?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Maybe there is. (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: No.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Yeah, but Edelgard and her idiot sidekick haven't shown much desire to compromise, have they?
    • Choice 2 response: Harsh...but true. I don't see how we can avoid what's coming.
  • Sylvain: Truthfully, I hate the idea of planning to kill people I used to be so close with. I guess everybody feels that way though.

Crimson Flower Chapter 16: Lady of Deceit Edit

Vs Ingrid Edit

  • Ingrid: Sylvain. This isn't funny. What are you doing?
  • Sylvain: I'm sorry, Ingrid. I belive in what the professor is trying to do more than I do in my own country.
  • Ingrid: Perhaps my blade will cut away the scales from your eyes!

Crimson Flower Chapter 17: Field of Revenge Edit

Combat at Tailtean Plains (Mission) Edit

Battle Quote Edit

  • So what are you waiting for? Let's finish this today.

Vs Male Byleth Edit

  • Sylvain: Professor! Has it really been five years? We ought to raise a glass to the occasion. Celebrate your return. Nah, I'd rather commemorate it with your death.

Vs Female Byleth Edit

  • Sylvain: Professor, there's something I should admit. I've got some regrets about how our lives have gone. I should have made a proper attempt to woo you before now. Instead, I have to kill you.

Vs. Felix Edit

  • Sylvain: Hey, Felix? Remember when we were kids and we made a promise about dying together?
  • Felix: I remember.
  • Sylvain: Well, seems we're about to kill each other.
  • Felix: Sorry, Sylvain. You'll die first.

Vs. Ingrid Edit

  • Sylvain: Stand down, Ingrid. I know you don't want to die here.
  • Ingrid: I will not. I'll never ally myself with the likes of you.
  • Sylvain: Stubborn as ever. I always did like that about you.
  • Ingrid: And you never cease to amaze me with your false flattery. Don't waste your breath.

Death Quote Edit

  • I was such a fool.

Verdant Wind Chapter 14: The Alliance Leader's Ambitions Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • "I'm the heir of House Gautier, and I'm fighting alongside a bunch of Alliance people? I can just imagine my father's face contorted in anger and the delightful words he must have used to describe me. I don't know how staying and fighting for Faerghus would have helped. Sorry, Professor. I don't regret my decisions. I'm just thinking out loud. And I'm hoping I haven't made a big mistake."

Verdant Wind Chapter 17: Blood of the Eagle and Lion Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: The time's come to fight the Empire, huh? Wow, it's shaping up to be quite the battle. And I've got no problem with that, but that mystery army really worries me. There's no indication if they're friend or foe... Who do you think they are, Professor?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Remnants of the old Kingdom?
    • Choice 2: Dimitri himself?
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: I suppose it's possible. After all, His Highness is supposedly dead.
    • Choice 2 response: Heh, not unless he rose from the grave to secure revenge. That would mean... Actually, I have no idea what that would mean.
  • Sylvain: Well, whoever they are, I hope we can avoid fighting them.

Verdant Wind Chapter 18: The Golden Scheme Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Ya know, Professor, laying siege to a keep is like asking a girl out on a date. First, you get past her defenses...then you make your move.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's not the best analogy.
    • Choice 2: You might be right (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. I'm a seasoned veteran at this kind of thing. Girls, I mean. I've never actually, you know, captured any keeps...
    • Choice 2 response: Ha! I knew you'd get it, Professor.
  • Sylvain: Anyway, you know more about tactics than me, so I don't know why I'm offering you advice.

Verdant Wind Chapter 19: The Chaos of War Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: So, Enbarr, the capital of the Empire. It's finally time. I never thought I'd live this long. It's like any battle, really-stay calm, stay focused. Don't give in to the enemy or your own fear.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You seem more serious than usual.
    • Choice 2: We'll get through this together. (raises support with Sylvain)
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Hey, I'm always serious! When I'm chasing girls or preparing for battle, always serious. That's me...
  • Sylvain: Striking down the Empire is my offering to His Highness. Heh, I left the Kingdom... What am I saying?

Verdant Wind Chapter 21: The City Without Light Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: This war might be over but not war in general. Human beings thrive on conflict. We can't get enough of it. I don't know when, but you know someday another war will begin.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Even so... (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: You're probably right about that.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: Heh heh... That's the way it is, right?
    • Choice 2 response: Yeah, but the fight is still worth it.
  • Sylvain: War may always come back but so will peace. And peace is what we fight for.

Verdant Wind Chapter 22: Fódlan's New Dawn Edit

Garreg Mach Monastery Edit

  • Sylvain: Just when we think we're in the clear, the legendary Fell King resurrects. Who'd have thought it? Can you handle this getting any weirder? I don't know if I can.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I can sympathize with you. (raises support with Sylvain)
    • Choice 2: No complaining.
  • Sylvain:
    • Choice 1 response: I don't know how much of this Nemesis guy is a legend and how much is true, but I know this...
    • Choice 2 response: I want to-I'm going to survive. I've spent this whole war afraid I'd die. Not anymore. I'm going to live.
  • Sylvain: I mean, I'll still fight like I want to die because that's worked so far, and why change at this late date, right? And if I'm right and I don't die, would you go have dinner with me sometime?

    • Good answer: You’re bound to meet someone open-minded someday.

With Ingrid Edit

Unknown support level

  • Sylvain: Professor, keep an eye on Ingrid. She'll swipe all the good bits for herself.
  • Ingrid: I would do no such thing! Sure, I like eating, but not to the point of thievery!

Unknown support level

  • Sylvain: It's weirdly soothing watching you just shovel it right in there. What's with the appetite today?
  • Ingrid: None of your business. I can't help it, OK? Everyone gets hungry after exercise! (favorite dish, Ingrid)

With Ingrid (war phase) Edit

  • Ingrid: After the fighting's done, we should all go on a gourmet's journey around the world. What say you?
