Tempest of Swords and Shields

Opening Narration Edit

With Derdriu now under Imperial control, the Leicester Alliance ceases to exist, and its remaining lords ally with the Empire. The Black Eagle Strike Force, now having conquered all of eastern Fodlan, confidently moves to invade the Kingdom.

Event: Facing the Kingdom Edit

Knights' Hall | Daytime

  • Hubert: ...And that concludes Count Bergliez's report.
    • Hubert: Just as Claude said, the old Alliance has willingly fallen under Imperial rule. However, knowing him, there is no telling what manner of poison could be waiting within. (If Claude was spared)
    • Hubert: Just as Your Majesty predicted, the old Alliance has willingly fallen under Imperial rule. However, even with Claude dead, there is no telling what manner of poison he left in his wake. (If Claude was killed)
  • Hubert: We must be careful not to expose any weakness.
  • Edelgard: Of course. Though it seems we can now attack the Kingdom without issue.
  • Hubert: True. However, you should know that Lord Arundel has entered Derdriu. It would seem he has already started collecting the Relics of the old Alliance...
  • Edelgard: Let him do as he pleases for now. It's not yet the time to chide him.
  • Hubert: Understood. As for the Kingdom... As we theorized, it is not entirely united. If we defeat the royal family of House Blaiddyd and a handful of other notable houses, it should fall under our control quite easily. Those we must target include the houses Fraldarius, Galatea, Gautier, and Charon.

(If Felix, Sylvain or Ingrid has been recruited)

  • Hubert: We have allies who are close to some of those lords.Perhaps that can be used to our advantage. Persuasion by tears or threats...Perhaps one would consent to act as an hostage? We must make good use of the tools given to us.
  • Edelgard: What about House Rowe in Arianrhod, the Fortress City? Will they not side with us?
  • Hubert: The head of House Fraldarius, Lord Rodrigue, has entered the city. It is possible that he has seized it.
  • Edelgard: I see. Then it might prove too difficult to strike Fhirdiad right away.
  • Hubert: Either way, when preparations are complete, we can begin our deployment into the Kingdom.
  • Edelgard: That part of the plan remains unchanged. Professor? Is something wrong?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: No, it's nothing.
    • Choice 2: Many of those names are new to me.
      • Edelgard: Yes, I don't imagine you have much interest in a running list of noble names. But it matters not. The nobility and the weight of it all those names will be gone once the war is over.
  • Edelgard: This month, we must put all of our effort into preparing for battle. I'm counting on you, my teacher.

(Scene transition)


(Byleth is walking across the Dormitory until they hear Edelgard shriek.)

  • Edelgard: Aaah!
  • Byleth: ... (With a shocked expression)

(Byleth rushes into Edelgard's room.)

  • Edelgard: Professor! You didn't hear anything just now, did you?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Are you OK?
      • Edelgard: Of course I am! It's nothing...nothing at all.
    • Choice 2: That was a cute shriek.
      • Edelgard: Cute?! Huh! Well, be that as it may, it is not your concern. It was nothing.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Are you sure about that?
      • Edelgard: I told you it was nothing and I meant it.
    • Choice 2: Really, very cute...
      • Edelgard: You seem to be trying your hardest to infuriate me. Don't you dare say that again! (if "That was a cute shriek" was chosen)
  • Edelgard: It's just... Well, there was a rat. I don't enjoy the company of rats. I believe I've told you about this before...about when I was held captive beneath the palace. There were a lot of rats there. To this day, I just...

(Byleth is shocked as they notice a portrait of themselves on the desk)

  • Byleth: What's that?

(A picture of a desk is shown)

  • Edelgard: What?! Oh! Professor! Leave here at once! I recall now that Hubert needs to speak with me. I must change my clothes. Now. Whatever you do, don't look this way.
  • Byleth: I already saw it...
  • Edelgard: Aah! Then forget what you saw! That's an order!
  • Byleth: ...

(The scene fades out)

Explore Edit

Edelgard Edit

There's no time to waste.

  • Edelgard: If the Alliance falls, then the Kingdom will... There's no time to waste. If we hesitate, we risk losing the initiative. I do think we should let the troops rest, though... We must maintain morale, Professor. And let's make sure this matter stays between us. If it gets out, I'll struggle to forgive even you.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: What matter?
      • Edelgard: Hmm... It seems you don't comprehend the consequences of angering the emperor.
    • Choice 2: Understood. (Relationship with Edelgard goes up)
      • Edelgard: Thank you.

Hubert Edit

An interesting character.

  • Hubert: Claude von Riegan. What an interesting character. Underneath that compassionate exterior, he was always cold and calculating. Ordinary fools run headlong into combat, without even considering the possibility of defeat. But to consider one's chances, and to prepare for plans to go awry--that takes real intelligence. I have to say, I am impressed beyond words.

Ferdinand Edit

I'm so moved.

  • Ferdinand: The majority is with us. This conflict will end soon. I am so moved by the Alliance nobles' decision. That is true nobility! Acting in accordance with the people's needs and wishes. As war drags on,those living near the front lines inevitably get the worst of it. We will not see such a peaceful resolution in Faerghus, I am afraid, as it is ruled by the royal family, not a council of nobles.

Linhardt Edit

The Holy Mausoleum's interesting, no?

  • Linhardt: I've been exploring the Holy Mausoleum. It's quite interesting in there. There is a mechanism I believe would allow us passage into the Holy Tomb, but I'm unclear on how to activate it. My research hasn't turned up much. It may come down to asking the archbishop for details.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Your research will find something. (Relationship with Linhardt goes up)
    • Choice 2: That's a puzzler.
  • Linhardt: Indeed. We'll see if it's worth the trouble.

Caspar Edit

Did you meet my father?

  • Caspar: Did you meet my father in Derdriu? I guess he'll be responsible for controlling the Riegan territory and maintaining popular support. Not really sure what all that means though...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You should study more. (Relationship with Caspar goes up)
      • Caspar: You're probably right. I'll do my best!
    • Choice 2: It doesn't matter.
      • Caspar: Are you sure? I figured you'd say something about me having to study more. Oh, I get it. This is a test! I'm definitely gonna have to brush up.

Bernadetta Edit

That's good, right?

  • Bernadetta: War isn't kind to you if you're a recluse. By the time you realize what's going on, you're already under attack. And if you're off by yourself, you can get killed with no one ever even finding out.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Sounds like you're learning.
    • Choice 2: Isn't that a little pessimistic? (Relationship with Bernadetta goes up)
  • Bernadetta: Got me out of my room, at least! That's good, right?

Dorothea Edit

They write operas about things like this.

If Byleth is female Edit
  • Dorothea: The Leicester Alliance is no more. Three hundred years of history...gone and done. They write operas about events like this, you know. I'm sure they'll have a talent and beautiful songstress playing you. Probably for Edie as well. I wonder if there'll be romantic tension between your two characters, even if it's not historically accurate?
If Byleth is male Edit
  • Dorothea: The Leicester Alliance is no more. Three hundred years of history...gone and done. They write operas about events like this, you know. I'm sure you'll be played by the most handsome actor of the time. Hearts will pound as he takes the stage. A diva will play Edie! You'll fall madly in love, even if it isn't historically accurate.

Petra Edit

The Kingdom always is cold...

  • Petra: The Kingdom always is cold. I have hatred for the cold. Brigid is not cold. We have no Cold Spirit. Does the goddess of Fodlan give protection from the cold? I am wishing I knew how to ask her...

Felix Edit

Can my old man defend Arianrhod?

  • Felix: Hmph. My father is holding Arianrhod secure. Our next battle will be there, against him, or in Fhirdiad, which the king is protecting.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Can you fight them?
      • Felix: Ha! Don't underestimate me. I've been preparing for this for a long time.
    • Choice 2: I'm counting on you. (Relationship with Felix goes up)
      • Felix: Hah. You just worry about yourself.

Sylvain Edit

Ah, that'll be really tough...

  • 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. (Relationship with Sylvain goes up)
      • Sylvain: Yeah, but Edelgard and her idiot sidekick haven't shown much desire to compromise, have they?
    • Choice 2: No.
      • Sylvain: 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.

Ashe Edit

Will the Kingdom fall like the Alliance?

  • Ashe: Derdriu's fallen. The Alliance nobles have surrendered to the Empire. We made it through with as few losses as possible. Not bad, all things considered... But I doubt it'll be so easy to deal with Faerghus.

Mercedes Edit

Can we settle this without a fight?

  • (If Claude was spared)
    • Mercedes: Oh, Claude. I'm so relieved that he managed to make it out alive. You'll be fighting the Kingdom next, right? Then the church? Isn't there some way we can do this without fighting Dimitri and Lady Rhea? I suppose not...
  • (If Claude was killed)
    • Mercedes: Oh, Claude. It's too late now, but it's such a shame... You'll be fighting the Kingdom next, right? Then the church? I guess Edelgard won't hesitate to cut Dimitri and Lady Rhea down...

Annette Edit

A moment in history...

  • Annette: We may be witnessing a key moment in history. Hundreds of years from now, your name and Edelgard's will be written in the history books, Professor!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Perhaps. (Relationship with Annette goes up)
    • Choice 2: That's a little embarrassing.
      • Annette: What, how? I think it's just amazing!
  • Annette: I wonder who will decide whether we did the right thing or not... Well, it won't be us, anyway. Probably the people of a future era.

Ingrid Edit

Do not underestimate things.

  • Ingrid: While the battle with the Alliance is over, we still need to stay vigilant. Both the church and the Kingdom are not to be taken lightly. I have the feeling we'll draw their attention soon. Weapon prep and training are of the utmost importance now more than ever.

Lorenz Edit

The praise for Claude was unfounded.

  • Lorenz: It seems all that praise of Claude's ingenuity was largely unfounded. A truly clever man would have realized defeat was inevitable and surrendered. Or, failing that, he could have rallied the Alliance nobles to secure a real fighting chance.
    • I regret missing my only opportunity to tell him so. (if Claude was killed)
    • I regret not telling him so. But I suppose a man like him will not remain hidden for long. (if Claude was spared)

Raphael Edit

It still hasn't hit me...

  • Raphael: I'm no noble, so it won't make much difference to me... But it hasn't really hit me yet that the Alliance is finished.
    • It hasn't even hit me that Claude is dead either. I half think he might have faked it so he can jump out and surprise us. That's the kinda thing he'd do. (if Claude was killed)
    • I wonder where Claude is now. What he's getting up to... (if Claude was spared)

Ignatz Edit

I saw it with my own eyes.

  • Ignatz: To think, I saw the end of the Leicester Alliance with my own eyes. I witnessed a turning point in the history of my homeland. I'm not sure how to express my feelings right now.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Why not write about it?
      • Ignatz: No, I don't have a gift for words. But perhaps I'll tell my children someday, if I have any.
    • Choice 2: Why not paint a picture? (Relationship with Ignatz goes up)
      • Ignatz: That's right, I'll paint it! "The Fall of Derdriu."
  • Ignatz: So that posterity can remember our triumph.

Lysithea Edit

If Lysithea was already recruited Edit

I'll leave the rest to her.

  • Lysithea: The battle ended without House Ordelia getting involved. Although...I've no desire to continue on with my family, so from here on out, it's up to Edelgard. I have Claude to thank. Ultimately, this ended without the Alliance being entirely consumed by war. It's all thanks to Claude.
If Lysithea was just recruited Edit

I'll offer thanks to Claude.

  • Lysithea: I have Claude to thank. Before the battle, he considered my precarious position and told me it wouldn't matter if we fell to the Empire. So when you invited me, I accepted without hesitation. Ultimately, this ended without the Alliance being entirely consumed by war. It's all thanks to Claude.

Marianne Edit

All I can do is pray...

  • Marianne: I wonder... Was there really no way to end it without fighting Claude?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It couldn't be helped. (Relationship with Marianne goes up)
      • Marianne: You're probably right...
    • Choice 2: It's better this way.
      • Marianne: I hope you're right...
  • Marianne: I suppose the only thing I can do for him now is pray...
    • Marianne: That he may live the rest of his life in happiness. (If Claude was spared)
    • Marianne: That he may rest in peace. (If Claude was killed)

Leonie Edit

Am I too soft?

  • Leonie: The worst part about going to battle is knowing you might have a friend fighting for the other side. You were a mercenary, Professor. Were you always prepared for that?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Absolutely.
      • Leonie: Guess I need to learn. Won't make a very good mercenary otherwise, will I?
    • Choice 2: I still hesitate. (Relationship with Leonie goes up)
      • Leonie: That's reassuring. I don't think I'll ever get used to it.
  • Leonie: Fighting old friends--there's nothing worse. My hands shake just thinking about it.
    • Leonie: I'm glad Claude didn't die. Does that make me soft? (If Claude was spared)
    • Leonie: I didn't want Claude to die. Does that make me soft? (If Claude was killed)

Alois Edit

I ought to properly search the place.

  • Alois: I've lived at Garreg Mach Monastery for a few decades now. Still, the other day I got myself all turned around! There are so many secret rooms and hidden passages. Maybe I'll take the time to properly search the place. Care to join me? I expect it'd take a whole day.

Shamir Edit

The thing about the emperor...

  • (If Claude was spared)
    • Shamir: You're too soft. I'm talking about Claude. Our emperor mercilessly cuts down all those who stand in her way... But perhaps she is more tolerant of those who know their place.
  • (If Claude was killed)
    • Shamir: Our emperor mercilessly cuts down all those who stand in her way... Even the "Master Tactician."

Hanneman Edit

Has the dynasty expired?

  • (If Claude was spared)
    • Hanneman: It seems Claude has disappeared...
  • (If Claude was killed)
    • Hanneman: Claude...lost in battle. My goodness.
  • Hanneman: Do you suppose this means the end of House Riegan? While the Crest of von Riegan is not terribly rare... The long linage of the von Riegan family will be broken.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: (If Claude was spared) It's just another consequence of war. (Relationship with Hanneman goes up)
    • Choice 1: (If Claude was killed) We should mourn his death. (Relationship with Hanneman goes up)
      • Hanneman: Agreed. The poor boy...
    • Choice 2: Does this pose an obstacle to your research?
      • Hanneman: No... At the very least, I think not. There are other, lesser Crests to research. Yet I am a human first and a scholar second. For now, I grieve the fallen and pray for those still living.

Manuela Edit

I'm still uneasy about this...

  • Manuela: You know as well as I do, the day's coming that we'll have to fight the archbishop and her knights. We've got some strong fighters here, sure. But even with all our training, I don't know if we can win. I just don't see how any of us can compete with the archbishop, say, turning into a monster.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: If we must fight, we will. (Relationship with Manuela goes down)
      • Manuela: Yeah? What if that fight's to the death--yours and mine in particular?
    • Choice 2: Sometimes it can be better to retreat. (Relationship with Manuela goes up)
      • Manuela: That's exactly what I was saying. I've always appreciated how you listen to me.

Jeritza Edit

The reason I'm here...

  • Jeritza: Neither the emperor nor the Empire have my allegiance. It is all simply part of the agreement. There is no other reason for me to be here.

Anna Edit

How could the Alliance have disbanded?

  • Anna: The Alliance is just...gone. It's hard to believe. The merchants of Derdriu all have nerves of steel. I'm sure they'll be up and running again in no time.

Randolph Edit

I will protect Garreg Mach!

  • Randolph: Finally, the Kingdom... After that, we'll battle the church. I volunteered for monastery guard duty. It was more for my family than anything. But now, from the bottom of my heart, I want to see Her Majesty ruling this land. Even if it costs me my life, I will protect Garreg Mach!

Fleche Edit

I'll defend to the bitter end!

  • Fleche: I just wanted to help out my brother, Randolph, so I aspired to be a soldier. My brother puts his life on the line to fight, so I'll put everything I have into it too. Eventually the enemy will attack, and when they do, we'll defend this place to the bitter end!

Ladislava Edit

Good luck in battle!

  • Ladislava: Your next opponents will be the Kingdom's army and the Knights of Seiros. Both fearsome foes. Put the mobility of my troops to good use, and let us protect the Kngdom's western battle front. When this month has ended, I'll depart. I pray that you have good luck in battle.

Gatekeeper Edit

Best of luck!

  • Gatekeeper: Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report! You may already know this, but the Kingdom and the Alliance were once a single entity. The leaders of the Alliance, House Riegan, are actually a branch of the Blaiddyd royal family. In a way, it's just a battle of the part of Blaiddyd family tree that rose in rebellion against the Empire...

Soldier near Officers Academy Edit

Lord Rodrigue won't surrender.

  • Soldier: They call Lord Rodrigue, who's defending Arianrhod, the Shield of Faerghus. He used to be on friendly terms with Dimitri's father, the former king. There's no chance that he'll surrender to us.

Soldier in Reception Hall Edit

The Knights of Seiros...

  • Soldier: It goes without saying but Garreg Mach is the most important sacred place to the Church of Seiros. The Knights of Seiros will try to get this place back by any means necessary. I don't think they're going to stay in the Kingdom capital forever. We should stay vigilant.

Soldier at Stables Edit

They say he is superhuman.

  • Soldier: King Dimitri of Faerghus possesses superhuman strength... I heard he can lift a horse with a single hand! I wonder if it's true...

Soldier in Entrance Hall Edit

The time is close at hand.

  • Soldier: The main body of the Imperial army is moving to the western region of the former Alliance territory to attack the kingdom. The time when victory or defeat will be decided between us and the Kingdom is close at hand.

Citizen in Dining Hall Edit

Randolph sure is easy on the eyes.

  • Citizen: Randolph has a big appetite. It does a heart good to see him. And he's handsome, too. Compared to him, Hubert is... Heh, forget I said anything.

Citizen at Fishing Pond Edit

General Ladislava...

  • Citizen: General Ladislava is really popular among the citizens of the Empire. If I remember correctly, the emperor herself has recognized her genius and made her a general. Despite her considerable talent, she never puts on airs. And she's beautiful too. She's even known as the Scarlet Warrior.

Merchant next to the Gatekeeper Edit

General Randolph is a strong leader.

  • Merchant: Doesn't seem to be much unrest in the former Alliance territories, perhaps thanks to Count Bergliez' strength. That said, General Randolph is the head of one of the branches of House Bergliez. It was once difficult for someone from a branch family to get ahead in life. But under His Majesty... Anyone who accomplishes great deeds during the war will see more success than they could have ever imagined!

Scholar in Library Edit

You must know this already.

  • Scholar: You must know this already... The former Faerghus territory used to belong to the Empire. The Battle of Tailtean, where Nemesis was defeated, put Faerghus under the Empire's control. Centuries later, a revolution sprung up in Faerghus, and through the mediation of the church, the Kingdom gained independence. The ringleader of the revolt became the first king, Loog von Blaiddyd. The Blaiddyds, the royal family of Faerghus, are directly descended from Loog, who was also known as the King of Lions. If you look at it from the point of view of the Empire, the Kingdom is just a bunch of traitors.

Explore: Abyss Edit

Yuri Edit

Better really focus.

  • Yuri: I'm impressed by how quickly toppling Derdriu brought the Alliance into the fold. Ideally we'd crush the Kingdom with ease...but something tells me it'll be...complicated. You'd better sharpen your focus to a fine point. Though I'm sure you already know that.

Balthus Edit

I've gotta keep doing my thing.

  • Balthus: The Alliance may be finished, but House Albrecht managed to come out unscathed. It's all thanks to my little bro. He's a great guy. I'm sure he'll do well under the Empire.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: That's good to hear. (Relationship with Balthus goes up)
      • Balthus: No kidding. I may have cut ties with them, but I was still curious to know how they were managing.
    • Choice 2: Will you go back there now?
      • Balthus: Not a chance. I don't have time for drama like that.
  • Balthus: The world may have changed, but I haven't. I have no interest in playing the noble game. I'd rather just keep doing my thing.

Constance Edit

Our victory draws nearer!

  • Constance: The swiftness of the Alliance's withdrawal on seeing that they had no hope of victory was unsurprising. Given their complete lack of solidarity, there could really have been no other outcome.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Do you have a problem with the Alliance nobles? (Relationship with Constance goes up)
      • Constance: No. But a noble's duty is to protect the commonfolk of their territory. I judge the Alliance by that metric.
    • Choice 2: Wasn't their withdrawal Claude's idea?
      • Constance: Yes, but he built his scheme with their self-interest as its cornerstone. Very cunning of him.
  • Constance: What's important is that one of the forces arrayed against us has fallen. Our victory draws nearer!

Hapi Edit

It's pretty twisted.

  • Hapi: We're fighting people we used to know from the Officers Academy. Guess that's the king of thing that happens in war, but...still. It's pretty twisted. It makes me feel so... Oof. Maybe I'll just try not to think about it.

Abysskeeper Edit

Times are changing...

  • Abysskeeper: Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report. The Alliance is a thing of the past now. Times are changing fast these days. It's hard to keep up, even for me! I wonder if Abyss is on the verge of change too. Change leads to uncertainty, and uncertainty leads to...change? I dunno. I'm just a guard.

Resident in Wilting Rose Inn Edit

Got a wager for you.

  • Resident: Got a wager for ya. My friend says there's twice as many women in Abyss as men. You think he's right?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: No. The men aren't as few as that.
      • Resident: Good eye. You win. Here, have a little something. (Gain Mythril x5)
    • Choice 2: Yes. Easily twice as many women.
      • Resident: No way. You got eyes? Take a look around.

Resident in Chrysalis Row Edit

Please don't tell anyone!

  • Resident: Please, you can't tell anyone you saw me here. I'm in hiding from the army. I couldn't stand the war. The violence. I had to get away... But now that I've deserted, I can't go home. Justice, ambition—what does any of that matter if you're dead? I just want to live. Is that so wrong?

Suspicious Man at Pagan Altar Edit


  • Suspicious Man: ... That damn prince. Seems my role here is at an end. No matter. Should another chance present itself, I'll take a less subtle route... (Disappears)

Quests Edit

Supply Run (Hubert) Edit

Receiving the Quest Edit
  • Hubert: Would you assist us in securing more resources?
Quest Completion Edit
  • Hubert: Thank you for helping to gather resources. Please accept this simple gift, by way of compensation.

The Secret Shop (Anna) Edit

Receiving the Quest Edit
  • Anna: It's gone! Gone, I say! I can't do business without it... Hey, you! Get it back for me, and I'll cut you the deal of your life!
Quest Completion Edit
  • Anna: Thanks, friend! That's a huge relief. Now I can finally open up shop! I'll be sure to swing by the monastery again, so keep an eye on the schedule and bring lots of gold!

Undercover Commerce (Merchant) Edit

Receiving the Quest Edit
  • Merchant: Don't tell anyone, but...I'm actually an Almyran merchant. I'm looking to export some goods from Fodlan and sell them back to my homeland. If you help me, I'll reward you handsomely.
Quest Completion Edit
  • Merchant: Thanks for helping us out. Here's your reward. It's a stuffed Nader bear! Cute, right?! This toy is incredibly popular with Almyran children these days. Feel free to show it off, but don't tell anyone where you got it from.

Narration Edit

Following the Alliance's defeat, the Black Eagle Strike Force prepares to invade the Kingdom, but the Kingdom's new allies--the Knights of Seiros--begin to make an advance of their own. After appearing in Ailell, the Valley of Torment, and following the border south, the Knights of Seiros openly march to recapture the monastery at Garreg Mach.

Event: Surprise Attack Edit

Reception Hall | Daytime

(An Imperial Soldier rushes up to Byleth, Edelgard, and Hubert to report.)

  • Imperial Soldier: Raid from the north! Their flag bears the symbol of the Knights of Seiros! One of our troops has already intercepted them! Your Majesty, please give us your orders!
  • Edelgard: From the north? Interesting... Could it be they journeyed through Ailell, the Valley of Torment? Is the archbishop among the enemy ranks? If so, focus our attacks on her first.
  • Imperial Soldier: Understood!

(The Imperial Soldier runs off.)

  • Edelgard: Our enemy knows Garreg Mach from inside and out. They can come and go as they please. It would have been best if we had detected them sooner, but that can't be helped. Professor. We must hurry and intercept them ourselves. I'll leave the preparations to you.

(Byleth nods.)

  • Hubert: Heh. The battle looks to be rather cumbersome. We are still guarding all of Garreg Mach, but there are undoubtedly numerous secret passages and magic traps... There is still much about this place that we do not know. It is quite possible that they will attack from a location we cannot anticipate.
  • Edelgard: I must head out first to give my orders. I'll meet up with you soon. Call for General Randolph and General Ladislava! Hurry!

(Edelgard and Hubert walk off, and the scene transitions.)

Monastery Outskirts

  • Seteth: It feels like only yesterday we called this place our home... We must show these fools the error of their ways. They shall pay for the sin of invading Garreg Mach...
  • Flayn: Oh, but the professor is fighting alongside our foe! The same one who saved my life...
  • Seteth: That is true... Though I find forgiveness difficult, we do owe that wayward soul a debt. However, the fact remains that because of the professor, Rhea has long been tormented. To think that the vessel of the goddess, entrusted with the Sword of the Creator, could go on to... Ah, it angers me to even think of it! All that has happened has changed Rhea. I imagine it has changed the professor as well. Even if we prevail, I doubt the church can ever fully return to the way it once was...
  • Flayn: Umm... Brother?
  • Seteth: Dear Flayn. I only brought you with me because you were so insistent. Still, no matter what happens, you must not go near the front lines. If something were to happen to you, it would utterly destroy me. You are my reason for breathing. Do you understand?
  • Flayn: I...I understand. If something were to happen to you, it would break my heart. I could not go on either. I cannot help but wonder...if there is a way to end this without fighting the professor...

(The scene fades out)

Battle: Protecting Garreg Mach Edit

Before Battle Edit

  • Shamir: Our surprise attack on Garreg Mach was a success. Now we just need to break through past this point. (If Shamir was not recruited)
    • Knight of Seiros: We were successful sneaking up on Garreg Mach. All that's left is to break through past this point. (If Shamir was recruited)
  • Alois: Lady Rhea and Catherine are holding back most of the Empire's army. Thereby leaving us, the expeditionary force, free to recapture the monastery! (If Alois was not recruited)
    • Knight of Seiros: The archbishop and Catherine are handling the bulk of the Imperial army. That gives us the chance to infiltrate the monastery! (If Alois was recruited)
  • Edelgard: Our enemies have followed us even here. How unfortunate.
  • Hubert: Your Majesty, the enemy's movement is suspicious. They may have some tactic in mind.
  • Edelgard: If so, then let's face them without delay. Form defensive lines and hold them to the death! Strike down all who approach!
  • Hubert: Their troop composition is also strange. I would bet that they are concealing additional soldiers.

Ally Phase One Edit

  • Hubert: The enemy is transporting large quantities of flammable material into the woods. They clearly intend to attack us with fire. We should do all we can to prevent it.
  • Edelgard: Troops waiting in the woods to ambush? We must avoid any suspicious areas as we advance.

Enemy Phase Two Edit

  • Seteth: Now!
  • Edelgard: Come at me, so that I may put you out of your misery! (Flayn and several Church Soldiers appear on the right side of the map.
  • Flayn: The time is now! As long as we stand here, you shall not pass!

Enemy Phase Twelve Edit

  • Alois: Now! Light it up! Like the goddess's fiery wrath, these flames will engulf our enemies. (If Alois not recruited)
  • Knight of Seiros: Start the fire! (Also plays if Alois was an enemy, but dead at this point)

(Upper part of the map becomes engulfed in flames. Another capture tile becomes available to the enemy.)

  • Shamir: Great. A path has opened for us. (If Shamir was not recruited)
  • Knight of Seiros: All right, a second route is open! Well done on this one too! (If Shamir was recruited or killed at this point)

If the defended location is captured Edit

  • Edelgard: If they break through here, the monastery will be — ...If that happens, all will be lost.

Shamir Edit

(With anyone) Edit

  • Shamir: How much of this can you take? It doesn't matter. We will be reclaming Garreg Mach.

(With Byleth) Edit

  • Shamir: You still align yourself with the emperor? What a shame. Let's make this quick. I don't want the loser to suffer.

(With Alois)Edit

  • Alois: Why, if it isn't Shamir! You're still with the knights. What a surprise.
  • Shamir: You're the surprise, Alois. I never thought I'd see the day you'd choose anyone over Rhea. Don't worry, I won't hold back. I owe an old ally the courtesy.
  • Alois: I won't either. I hope you're ready.

(With Petra)Edit

  • Shamir: I cannot bring myself to kill you... You're a princess of Brigid. A hostage of the Empire.
  • Petra: That was the truth in the past, but it is a different truth now, Shamir... I am...the will of the emperor!
  • Shamir: In that case, I won't hold back.

(When defeated) Edit

  • Shamir: I knew it... Shouldn't have let emotion get in the way...
  • Alois: Shamir, no! I will avenge you! (If not defeated)

Alois Edit

(With anyone) Edit

  • Alois: You fiend, bearing ill will against the goddess. This place will be your grave!

(With Byleth) Edit

  • Alois: I can't believe you would try to kill lady Rhea. Jeralt must be turning in his grave. I can't protect you like my promised. I have to kill you and bury you with my own hands.

(With Shamir) Edit

  • Shamir: So, you're the leader of the Knights of Seiros now? Good for you, Alois.
  • Alois: Indeed. You seem to be doing well for yourself too. The other knights are always cursing you.
  • Shamir: Don't worry, I won't hold back. I owe an old ally the courtesy.
  • Alois: I won't either. I hope you're ready.

(When defeated) Edit

  • Alois: Jeralt, I did it... I protected the monastery...
  • Shamir: Alois! How dare you die before me! (if not defeated)

(When both knight commanders are defeated before Enemy Phase Twelve)Edit

  • Edelgard: Our enemy's plans is in ruins. Still, we must tread carefully.

Flayn Edit

(With anyone) Edit

  • Flayn: This makes me terribly sad, but this is my duty, to which I must be true!

(With Byleth) Edit

  • Flayn: When I heard you were alive, Professor, I was so happy. But now... Now this? How can it be that you fight on that side? I cannot take your life, for I owe you mine, even now. And yet I cannot back away from this fight. When this is over, my brother and I will go into hiding. It is the only way.

(When defeated by Byleth or after sparing Seteth) Edit

  • Flayn: Farewell, Professor. I do not imagine we shall ever meet again.

(When killed by anyone else or after killing Seteth) Edit

  • Flayn: Father, please forgive me... I am returning to Mother now...before you do...
  • Seteth: Flayn! Please, no! No! (If not defeated or killed)

Seteth Edit

(With anyone) Edit

  • Seteth: Trespassing on holy ground is a grave sin indeed. You must atone for it with your life!

(With Byleth, if Flayn is still alive or she's spared) Edit

  • Seteth: It saddens me to face you on the field of battle, after all you've done for Flayn. I cannot approve of your actions. But I also cannot follow Rhea on her current course. It may not change anything, but allow me to make a promise to you. If Flayn and I survive this battle, we will withdraw from the world and leave you to do as you please.

(When defeated by Byleth or after sparing Flayn) Edit

  • Seteth: I'm sorry, Rhea... For Flayn's sake, I must take my leave to retreat...

(When killed by anyone else or after killing Flayn) Edit

  • Seteth: I'm sorry, Flayn... I couldn't protect you...
  • Flayn: Father! Father, why?! Why?! (If not defeated or killed)

Stage Clear Edit

  • Edelgard: We fought them off. Good work, everyone. We've repelled the principle force of the knights and defended Garreg Mach! Hubert, I require a damage report at once.
  • Hubert: Yes, Your Majesty. We will have to make inquiries about the status of the main army.
  • Edelgard: Indeed. After all, it seems they had Rhea and Catherine fighting on their side.

Event: War Council: Pegasus Moon Edit

The Sealed Forest: Daytime

(If Seteth and Flayn were spared) Edit

  • Catherine: Lady Rhea. The unit that invaded the monastery has been completely driven away. We were able to make a clean sweep of those who came to attack us. However, I fear we can do nothing but retreat for now.
  • Rhea: What of Seteth and Flayn?
  • Catherine: Seteth and Flayn were able to escape in another direction. I have a message from them.

(A letter appears from Seteth)

  • Seteth: I am sorry, Rhea. I fear we must return to a life in hiding. I detest that person with all my heart. However, Flayn's life is more important to me than all else. I pray that you will one day be free from the burden of your work...

(The letter disappears)

  • Rhea: I see. As expected, I am the only one left. Mother, please wait for me. I promise that I will save you...The filthy thief who stole you from the Holy Tomb...I will crush them with my bare hands!

(If Seteth and Flayn were killed) Edit

  • Catherine: Lady Rhea! I am afraid I must report...we lost Seteth and Flayn. We were able to make a clean sweep of those who came to attack us. The unit that invaded the monastery has been completely driven away...a bitter disappointment. I fear we can do nothing but retreat for you.
  • Rhea: Seteth... Flayn... First my mother, and now those two have been stolen away as well? Must you take everything from me?!
  • Catherine: Lady Rhea...
  • Rhea: No amount of repentance will bring your wretched soul salvation. You will be chained to the Valley of Torment...eternally walk the desert until the skin rots from your bones... I will ensure that you pay for your sins, Professor! In the name of the Nabateans, I swear it!

(Scene transition)

Entrance Hall

  • Randolph: Edelgard... Your Majesty... I am so sorry...
  • Edelgard: Silence. We must tend to your wounds.
  • Randolph: It will do no good. I can't be saved... You must know that. Ladislava has also passed... The enemy has withdrawn... You are safe now...
  • Edelgard: Understood. Good work. Another loss on my watch... As more blood wets my feet, they grow heavier with each step. Remorse, resentment, despair... I have dispensed with all such things to come this far.
  • Hubert: And we must keep moving forward...
  • Edelgard: Hubert. Tell me the status of the enemy.
  • Hubert: The battle has ended in a draw with severe injuries on both sides. Some known commanders have been slain.
  • (If Seteth was killed)
  • Hubert: The most worthy of mention among the dead was the second in command to Rhea herself, Seteth.
  • (if Alois was not recruited)
    • Hubert: With the death of Alois, the Knights of Seiros have taken a huge blow as well.
  • Hubert: Garreg Mach has not taken much damage, and so it would not be let out of line to claim it as a victory of ours.
  • Edelgard: Yes... We'll call that a victory. Although, I'm sure they will say the same.
  • Hubert: Yes, Your Majesty.

(Scene transition)

Dining Hall

  • Bernadetta: Ugh, what a terrible opponent that was! Why is the church always like this?! How am I supposed to train for that?! It was way too scary!
  • Linhardt: When I saw the enemy enter Garreg Mach, I prepared myself mentally for death. I thought it would be a fine time to die, but I suppose it wasn't quite the time after all...
  • Petra: Our luck was good to have grabbed victory. The church has great strength. We must not have grief, but must keep fighting. Can we be fighting now?
  • Ferdinand: This was certainly a momentous victory. We lost a lot, but we also gained a lot. Certain lords in the Kingdom have examined the situation again and decided to join our cause. Changing their fealty based on just one battle... They are all a disgrace to the nobility!
  • Dorothea: Today, our enemy held many faces I knew well... If we must fight to the death with that kind of opponent, what will become of this world?
  • Caspar: There's no stopping me! I'm ready go strike the Kingdom here and now! Everyone must see that we can easily unite Fodlan! Don't you think?

(Edelgard and Hubert walk into the room)

  • Edelgard: Excellent job, everyone. The battle is over now.
    • Edelgard: Professor, the battle is over now. (If all of the Black Eagle students were defeated in Part 1)
  • Edelgard: While we have sustained heavy losses, our foe has suffered far more.
  • Hubert: Although not exactly as planned, a win is a win. It may be safe to say that there will be no more obstacles on our way to the next battle.
  • Edelgard: We will break through the Tailtean Plains and then set course for Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital. The final chapter of our fight with the Kingdom and the church is close at hand.
