Narration Edit

Blue Sea Moon Edit

As the sun grows stronger and the nights grow ever shorter, the Blue Sea Star returns to the sky once more. Believed to be the goddess's home, her followers look to the star and commence celebrations of her rebirth. On the grounds of Garreg Mach Monastery, a grand ceremony is held in honor of this much anticipated event. Every true follower of the Church of Seiros is sure to be in attendance.

Event: The Enemy's Aim Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

Reception Hall | Daytime

  • Dimitri: So, our task for this moon is to patrol and guard the monastery, to help put a stop to that assassination plot. The knights will certainly have their hands full protecting Lady Rhea. Perhaps our enemy is counting on that...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: What do you mean?
    • Choice 2: I agree. (Relationship with Dimitri up)
  • Dedue:
    • Choice 1 response: Your Highness. I am curious as to what you mean by that.
    • Choice 2 response: Please, elaborate.
  • Dimitri: Why would Lord Lonato be carrying around a secret note with an assassination plot written on it? Isn't it possible he hoped to monopolize everyone's attention with this alleged plot...in order to distract from his true aim?
  • Annette: Maybe they're after the treasure vault. There's also lots of valuable stuff in the library and Professor Hanneman's quarters!
  • Felix: True. The monastery undoubtedly houses many weapons that rival even the Heroes' Relics.
  • Sylvain: Whatever their aim, we can't allow any harm to come to the ladies of the monastery. I mean, what would I do with my spare time?
  • Dedue: You mean to say we should search the monastery. Try to find what the enemy is truly after.
  • Dimitri: Yes. And we should be prepared to fight them as well, should it come to that. I wouldn't mind getting in some training, just in case.

(Shamir and Cyril approach)

  • Shamir: A secret meeting, Professor? Oh, we haven't been introduced. I am Shamir.
  • Dimitri: Shamir is one of the Knights of Seiros. And this young man here is–
  • Cyril: I work for Lady Rhea! And I'm Shamir's apprentice! Oh, the name's Cyril.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You work for Rhea?
    • Choice 2: Shamir's apprentice?
  • Cyril:
    • Choice 1 response: Yep. I help Lady Rhea with all kinds of stuff.
    • Choice 2 response: Yep. She's teaching me about the bow and the sword and all kinds of stuff.
  • Cyril: I've gotta protect Lady Rhea, so that's why I've gotta learn all I can from Shamir.
  • Shamir: Cyril adores Rhea. That aside, if you need anything, ask.

(Byleth nods)

Golden Deer route Edit

Reception Hall | Daytime

  • Claude: OK... So our task this moon is to patrol and guard the monastery in support of the knights, who are busy trying to stop an assassination plot. Here's the thing. I don't think the bad guys are really trying to assassinate the archbishop.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: What do you mean?
    • Choice 2: It's a distraction.
  • Claude:
    • Choice 1 response: Come on, Teach. Don't you think that "secret" note Lord Lonato was carrying around was just a little too obvious?
  • Claude: People don't just carry around secret notes. Someone wanted us to find it.
  • Ignatz: Do you really think the assassination plot is just a distraction?
  • Hilda: Oh, yeah. That makes complete sense. But then...what are they really after?
  • Claude: If I knew that, I wouldn't be so worried. Let's see... It probably involves somewhere that will be empty during the Rite of Rebirth, yeah?
  • Lysithea: Since the ceremony is at the Goddess Tower, it follows that everywhere else at the academy will be severely understaffed.
  • Leonie: Do you think they're after the church's donation money? I hear noble families tend to donate quite generously.
  • Raphael: My bet's on the dining hall. It's a treasure trove of delicious food. Makes me angry just thinking about them getting their grubby hands on it!
  • Hilda: Let's split up and look around! I'll keep an eye on the reception hall.
  • Claude: You should get in some training if you have the time, Hilda. There's a good chance we'll have to fight.
  • Hilda: Uh! Well, I'm not the only one who needs to train here! It's not right to single me out like that.

(Shamir and Cyril approach)

  • Shamir: A secret meeting, Professor? Oh, we haven't been introduced. I am Shamir.
  • Claude: Shamir is one of the Knights of Seiros. And that little go-getter there is–
  • Cyril: I work for Lady Rhea! And I'm Shamir's apprentice! Oh, the name's Cyril.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You work for Rhea?
    • Choice 2: Shamir's apprentice?
  • Cyril:
    • Choice 1 response: Yep. I help Lady Rhea with all kinds of stuff.
    • Choice 2 response: Yep. She's teaching me about the bow and the sword and all kinds of stuff.
  • Cyril: I've gotta protect Lady Rhea, so that's why I've gotta learn all I can from Shamir.
  • Shamir: Cyril adores Rhea. That aside, if you need anything, ask.

Explore Edit

Sothis Edit

  • Sothis: A Hero's Relic...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Do you know anything? (Relationship with Sothis up)
    • Choice 2: It represents great power.
  • Sothis:
    • Choice 1 response: However could I know something? But still, it is heavy on my mind.
    • Choice 2 response: Quite so.
  • Sothis: The stone within the sword... A glow of red... Hm? Oh, it is nothing.

Edelgard Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Other routes Edit

Such a stir over a single letter...

  • Edelgard: Oh, have you been tasked with guarding the monastery as well? Such a stir over a single letter...but I suppose the archbishop's safety is too important to risk.

Dimitri Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

The enemy's aim...

Pre-Quest Edit
  • Dimitri: If the enemy's aim lies elsewhere, we had better discern their true intent quickly. As I see it, our best option is to explore every inch of the monastery. We should also speak to everyone here. Let's plan to compare notes once you've got a lead.
Post-Quest Edit
  • Dimitri: So... There is something that the church values above all else. On the day of the rite, it will be open to the public. That will make gaining entry far easier than usual. You know the place of which I speak...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: The greenhouse?
    • Choice 2: The Holy Mausoleum?
    • Choice 3: The dining hall?
  • Dimitri:
    • Choice 1 and 3 response: Whatever would make you think that? This is no time for games, Professor.
    • Choice 2 response: Yes, that is the most likely possibility.
  • Dimitri: We do not know their objective, but there is a good chance that our enemy is planning to target the Holy Mausoleum.

Other routes Edit

Claude Edit

Golden Deer route Edit

Other routes Edit

Lady Rhea's in danger...

  • Claude: There's been talk of an attempt on Rhea's life. We've been order to help the knights patrol. Could that possibly mean that Rhea isn't beloved by everyone the world over?

Hubert Edit

I wonder what would happen...

  • Hubert: Can you imagine the archbishop being murdered? I prefer not to consider such a gruesome scenario.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Of course not. (Relationship with Hubert up)
    • Choice 2: Frightening thought.
  • Hubert:
    • Choice 1 response: Awfully calm, aren't you? I wonder what it takes to rile you up.
    • Choice 2 response: That easy to get under your skin, is it?

FerdinandEdit

Such impressive horses.

  • Ferdinand: Hmm... Setting fire to the stables to distract everyone, to cause a commotion. It is the oldest trick in the book, but I cannot shake the thought that our enemies may attempt it... I will stand guard and watch over the stable...and the knights' horses. They are truly magnificent.

Linhardt Edit

Can't stay...awake...

  • Linhardt: So sleepy... Too sleepy... I found an interesting book in the library. Got so caught up reading it I forgot to sleep... Interesting discovery though–the coffins of the Four Saints in the sanctum each have their Crests carved into them. I'll need to find a way down there to get a look.

CasparEdit

Hey, Professor!

  • Caspar: Oh. Hey, Professor. I was just reading this letter from my father. Do you know him? He's a pretty big deal in the Empire. He only writes to ask how my training's going, or how many monsters I've killed. Stuff like that.

Bernadetta Edit

  • Bernadetta: Um... Hi. Right now is, um... Well, right now's OK I guess. If you, um, want to chat...a little.
  • Byleth: Didn't I see you in the dining hall last night?
  • Bernadetta: Hey, I get hungry sometimes. Like anyone else! What? Eating at night is bad for you? There's no way that's true. Wait, really?

Dorothea Edit

People die in battle, but...

  • Dorothea: Is it true you got caught in the fighting? I'm so thankful you made it out alive. I don't know what we would do if we lost you...

Petra Edit

Assassinations are many...

  • Petra: Fighting to stop a murdering is my specialness...no, my specialty. I will show my best work!

Dedue Edit

Understandably wary...

  • Dedue: The monks declined my offer of assistance. They said that no one from Duscur is to be trusted, especially now. Given the circumstances, I cannot fault them.

Felix Edit

I want a good fight.

  • Felix: Sending an assassin to the monastery, hm? Hopefully it's someone worth crossing blades with.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I hope so too. (Relationship with Felix up)
    • Choice 2: I hope we can avoid bloodshed.
  • Felix:
    • Choice 1 response: It seems we're cut from the same cloth.
    • Choice 2 response: You're entitled to your opinion.

Ashe Edit

Lonato...

  • Ashe: I can't stop thinking about Lonato... I'm sorry, Professor. I know this isn't the time, but... I just can't get past it.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: There's nothing to be done.
    • Choice 2: Pull yourself together. (Relationship with Ashe up)
  • Ashe: Thank you. No matter what happens, I promise you I'll do my part. I checked on my brother and sister who were living in Castle Gaspard. Thankfully they're all right. I was worried because they're both so young, but the church in the castle town offered to take them in. That much, at least, is a big relief.

Sylvain Edit

It's festival day. And I've heard rumors...

  • Sylvain: 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 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?

Mercedes Edit

Absolutely horrible.

  • Mercedes: The monastery holds many treasures. Maybe the enemy is after one of those? Even so, the idea of stealing from the church is just horrible...

Annette Edit

I'm back from shopping!

  • Annette: I bought the ingredients for making some sweet treats I can't wait to eats! Huh? Oh! I know it looks like I'm fooling around, but I'm not. I'm preparing for potential battle during my patrol by making sure I have plenty of food I can eat while walking. Smart, huh?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Good thinking. (Relationship with Annette up)
    • Choice 2: You're making patrol sweets?
  • Annette:
    • Choice 1 response: I know! Once they're ready, I promise to share some with you.
    • Choice 2 response: I just thought I'd be more alert if I had something sweet in my tummy. Oh, wait! Was it spicy food that you liked, Professor?

Ingrid Edit

We must be prepared.

  • Ingrid: Professor, while the investigation is important, don't forget to make time for your training. If we have to battle and cannot win, all will be lost. We don't know who our enemy is, so we must be prepared for anything.

Lorenz Edit

Probably a tasteless joke.

  • Lorenz: The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is the most significant ritual for the Church of Seiros. Could it be that someone has spread these rumors of an assassination plot merely with the intention to hinder the celebration?

Raphael Edit

Here's what I think...

  • Raphael: I bet the enemy's using this assassination nonsense just to sneak in and raid the pantry. What do you think, Professor?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: You may be right. (Relationship with Raphael up)
    • Choice 2: I don't think so.
  • Raphael:
    • Choice 1 response: Oh, I'm right all right. My animal instinct is telling me that the enemy is after our best meats.
    • Choice 2 response: You don't think so? Then dinner's on you if it turns out I was right!

Ignatz Edit

This month is hard...

  • Ignatz: With the whole monastery preparing for the Goddess's Rite of Rebirth this month, it feels like everyone's a little on edge...

Lysithea Edit

How inconvenient.

  • Lysithea: I don't know who to blame for all this commotion, but it's frankly a huge inconvenience. With everyone stuck on guard duty, our study and training time has been drastically reduced.

Marianne Edit

I don't understand...

  • Marianne: It seems there were forces opposing the church, beyond Lord Lonato... I never thought such forces could exist in this world.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It makes sense that the church has enemies.
    • Choice 2: We only know a small part of this world. (Relationship with Marianne up)
  • Marianne:
    • Choice 1 response: I don't understand. What would they have against the church?
    • Choice 2 response: I suppose that may be true...

Hilda Edit

It's kinda fun.

  • Hilda: Did you know that, on the last day of the rite, the monastery's open to the general public? It's kinda fun. It makes the place feel like a festival.

Leonie Edit

Have you heard, Professor?

  • Leonie: Hey, did you hear? A knight wielding a scythe is roaming around town at night. If he's a villain, I'd like to get the measure of him.

Rhea Edit

Professor...

  • Rhea: Hmm... Might you have come looking for me because you were worried about my safety?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I was worried. (Relationship with Rhea up)
    • Choice 2: The enemy could have other objectives.
  • Rhea:
    • Choice 1 response: I am quite all right. But your concern means a great deal.
    • Choice 2 response: I am aware of the possibility. On the day of the ceremony, I am trusting that you will not allow your attention to wander or wane.

Seteth Edit

I think this is all of it.

  • Seteth: I've been in town, procuring some supplies for Flayn.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Did you encounter any danger? (Relationship with Seteth up)
    • Choice 2: What supplies?
  • Seteth:
    • Choice 1 response: No, but do not concern yourself for my safety. I am very much stronger than I appear.
    • Choice 2 response: Nothing out of the ordinary. Do not trouble yourself over it.

Flayn Edit

Professor...

  • Flayn: Professor... I am afraid I have acted a bit childishly toward my brother recently... Given the circumstances, I requested that he provide me with some candies... Silly of me, really. The timing was improper, and I regret it very much now. Oh, but more importantly, this place is off limits, Professor. It is only open to the public on the day of the Goddess's Rite of Rebirth.

Alois Edit

The Goddess Tower...

  • Alois: Have you visited the Goddess Tower? It's a sacred place, used for rituals and the like. In general, students aren't allowed entry. But as you'd expect, that rule just excites their curiosity. Some have even tried sneaking in. Well, at least for this month, that kind of behavior is totally unthinkable. We have a lot more security, what with the Goddess's Rite of Rebirth coming up.
  • Gained Investigation Note #2 x1

Catherine Edit

Watch it.

  • Catherine: You'd best keep your distance. In this nervous state, I might just cut you down.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Please don't.
    • Choice 2: I dare you to try. (Relationship with Catherine up)
  • Catherine: Oh, come on. I'm only kidding!

Shamir Edit

What do you want?

  • Shamir: You spend too much time roaming the monastery. If you're looking for something, try less aimless wandering.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I was thinking about the enemy's objective. (Relationship with Shamir up)
    • Choice 2: I'm not looking for anything.
  • Shamir:
    • Choice 1 response: Do you even know who the enemy is? You can't know why without knowing who.
    • Choice 2 response: Sure. It's none of my business anyway. I'm just here to take care of enemies who get too close.
  • Shamir: It's none of my business anyway. I'm just here to take care of enemies who get too close.

Jeritza Edit

You...

  • Jeritza: You're skilled. Why won't you battle me? Hmph.

Jeralt Edit

What's the matter?

  • Jeralt: What's the matter? You're running all over creation. Ah... You don't believe Lady Rhea is the real target, do you? Even so, the knights have their orders. We can't abandon our duty to guard Lady Rhea. The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is an important event for the Church of Seiros. They say it's the day when the goddess will return to walk among us. Not too likely, if you ask me. Uh... Best if you keep that to yourself.

Hanneman Edit

What a terrifying story!

  • Hanneman: Unbelievable. What a terrifying story. However, an assassination attempt on Lady Rhea is doomed to fail. Pardon? You think the goal may be different than simple assassination? Intriguing. I suppose the priceless objects in this room could perhaps draw thieves. However, there's no one but me who could make use of them...
  • Gained Investigation Note #1 x1

Manuela Edit

I hope you're well.

  • Manuela: Professor. I hope you're well. As for me, I had a date with a splendid specimen of a knight. But now he's suddenly not in the mood to see me again. I blame all these rumors of a deathly figure showing up in town. Such an uproar must have, beyond reason, drawn his attention away from me.

Tomas Edit

Have you witnessed it?

  • Tomas: I hear you have fought alongside Catherine. I would wager that her power exceeded your expectations. Had you the chance to witness her Relic? Thunderbrand, glowing red... That glow is a sure sign that her blood contains a Crest that harmonizes with that Hero's Relic.

Cyril Edit

Excuse me?

  • Cyril: Excuse me, Professor? I just wanted to let you know that Lady Rhea is always real concerned with you. She expects great things, I think. Please don't let her down, OK?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Of course not. (Relationship with Cyril up)
    • Choice 2: We'll see...
  • Cyril:
    • Choice 1 response: I hope you're not just saying that.
    • Choice 2 response: Ya know what? I'm watching you.

Gatekeeper Edit

Should be a busy month...

  • Gatekeeper: Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report! The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is this month, right? The monastery gates will be thrown wide open on that day! I'll be working as a guide. I hope I get to guide some lovely ladies around... Heh heh...

Squire at the Cathedral Edit

The goddess...

  • Squire: The goddess's home is in the sky! She lives on a bright and shining star! But in the spring, you can't see that star. That means she can't protect Fodlan. That's why we all celebrate the day when her star returns to the sky! That's the day of the Rite of Rebirth! See, see? I've been studying! I know just about everything!

Knight of Seiros at the Cathedral Edit

People don't understand.

  • Knight of Seiros: People seem to think that all the Knights of Seiros are equal, but that isn't quite so. There are many distinguishing ranks within the order. For example, there are squires, who are training to become knights, as well as full knights, like myself. Oh, and then we have the holy knights, such as Catherine. Those are the knights that can wield a Hero's Relic.

Priest at the Cathedral Edit

It's strange...

  • Priest: About 20 or so years ago there was a big fire in Garreg Mach. On that day, Captain Jeralt went missing. Everyone thought he was dead... It never occurred to me that he might actually have survived. The truly strange part is that, in all those years, he hasn't changed a bit...

Knight of Seiros in front of the Holy Mausoleum Edit

Did you know?

  • Knight of Seiros: On the day of the rite, the monastery will be open to the public, including the Holy Mausoleum. The Holy Mausoleum is where the tomb of the divine Seiros lies. There she slumbers, eternally. That's...pretty much all that in there. Just an ancient coffin. It's sealed with a powerful magic, to protect against would-be grave robbers.
  • Gained Investigation Note #3 x1

Knight of Seiros at the Officers Academy Edit

The War of the Eagle and Lion...

  • Knight of Seiros: Have you heard of the War of the Eagle and Lion? It was the battle that won the Kingdom its independence from the Empire. Even the Church of Seiros had no choice but to recognize the courage of Loog, the King of Lions, who emerged victorious. The church awarded him a crown and the right to govern the Faerghus region, backing him in his bid to found the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. In return, Loog agreed to make the Church of Seiros the religion of his territory, and permitted them to publicly proselytize across the Kingdom. In the 400 years since, the church and the Kingdom have continued to maintain very close relations.

Knight of Seiros in the Dining Hall Edit

Plenty of valuables...

  • Knight of Seiros: Something in the monastery that someone might go after? There's so much here I couldn't possibly name just one. Even this here kitchen contains previous wares. Wine bottles from centuries past and the like. I hear that stuff is fancy, but not very drinkable. I doubt anyone would go to the trouble of stealing it.
  • Gained Investigation Note #5 x1

Monk in front of the Greenhouse Edit

I'm so worried...

  • Monk: It would be terrible if the greenhouse was targeted. The plants in here are incredibly valuable. This place contains the heart of Garreg Mach's 995-year history! So many beautiful flowers... Plants that can save or end lives... They are all my precious children.
  • Gained Investigation Note #7 x1

Knight of Seiros at the Stables Edit

A request, Professor.

  • Knight of Seiros: I have heard talk of students wandering the monastery late at night. They wouldn't happen to be from your class, would they? Please keep your students in line, Professor. Kids these days...

Priest at the Knights' Hall Edit

This is the treasure vault.

  • Priest: Do you know what this room is? It is the church's treasure vault. I say treasure, but I do not mean silver and gold and jewels. It mostly contains weapons, artifacts, and the like. Anything that would cause too great a stir should it be stolen? No. The church knows better than to store anything too valuable in such an accessible location.
  • Gained Investigation Note #4 x1

Male Monk in Library Edit

Hmm...

  • Monk: There are numerous books in this library that you cannot find anywhere else. But once you are here, you can read them easily enough. I doubt someone would go to the trouble of stealing one. Sometimes Seteth will dispose of books that are deemed inappropriate for the monastery, but that's about it. In a way, I suppose that makes those particular volumes more valuable... Right?
  • Gained Investigation Note #6 x1

Female Monk in Library Edit

There's something about that boy...

  • Monk: That boy who assists the archbishop... Cyril, I believe? I hear he's originally from a foreign land to the east called Almyra. I know he's still only a child, but I do wonder about his true intentions...

Quests Edit

Quest: Know Your Enemy (House Leader) Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

(Dimitri)

Receiving Quest Edit
  • Dimitri: We need to know the enemy's motive so we can adapt. Let's talk to people around the monastery and see if we can learn anything that might lead us to a clue.
Quest completion Edit
  • Dimitri: We seem to have narrowed down some of the enemy's possible objectives. I wonder if our conjecture is correct... I suppose time will reveal all.

Golden Deer route Edit

Quest: In Hiding (Seteth) Edit

Receiving Quest Edit

  • Seteth: A band of thieves has been raiding villages in the north of Faerghus. Reports indicate they have made an old tower their stronghold. Do you have any idea where it might be?

Quest completion Edit

  • Seteth: Conand Tower? Yes, I suppose that would make a sensible base for a group of thieves. I will use this information to investigate the matter further. You have my thanks.

Quest: Tea for Two (Ferdinand) Edit

Receiving Quest Edit

  • Ferdinand: I made a dreadful mistake and ended up with two of the same tea set. Now I must gift one of them to someone who can appreciate its value. Could you help me find someone deserving of such a precious gift?

Quest Completion Edit

  • Ferdinand: Thank you for your help, Professor! There is nothing quite like a tea party to brighten your spirits, don't you think? If you would like to get to know someone better, try inviting them to have tea with you.

Quest: Only the Bold (Caspar) Edit

Receiving Quest Edit

  • Caspar: Do you know about the fighting tournaments here at the monastery? I hear anyone can get involved! Oh, I know! You and I should sign up, Professor!

Quest Completion Edit

  • Caspar: You know how fighting tournaments work, right? One-on-one fights, one after another. Each month there are different tournaments. I can't wait!

Event: The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

Cathedral | Daytime

  • Dimitri: The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is finally here. Let's move ahead with our plan.
  • Dedue: Leave it to me. Professor, Are you in as well?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Of course.
      • Ingrid: We've narrowed down our objective...kind of. So, let's show everyone that we can carry out our duties better than anyone!
    • Choice 2: I'm not sure about this.
      • Mercedes: Oh dear. Our professor seems to lack confidence in our plan. That is not very reassuring.
    • Choice 3: I'm hungry.
      • Annette: Umm... Oh! Well, I'll be sure to whip you up some tasty treats when this is all over!
  • Dimitri: We're counting on you, Professor.

(Seteth and Flayn join them)

  • Seteth: You seem a mite too relaxed for my liking. The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is about to begin. While we are in the Goddess Tower, we are relying on you to secure the locations that are lacking in defense.
  • Flayn: May I let you in on something, Professor? My brother can be a bit...callous. He told me that he was concerned about you, and hinted that perhaps you would be better off patrolling a coffin!
  • Seteth: That was said in jest, Flayn. And in confidence. Please just remain by my side and do not cause any more trouble. As a professor, you would do well to remember that it is your duty to guide your students down the path of righteousness.
  • Flayn: Please excuse us, everyone. We shall see you again after the ceremony has concluded!

(Seteth and Flayn leave)

  • Dedue: It's time.
  • Dimitri: All right. Let's stick to the plan, and go hide where we can watch over the entrance to the Holy Mausoleum. If anyone suspicious enters, we'll follow them in and take them down. Got it?

Alternate (if the player didn't complete the quest to discover the enemy's objective) Edit

Cathedral | Daytime

  • Dimitri: The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is finally here. Yet we still don't know what the enemy is after... I suppose all we can do is try to cope with whatever should occur as we're patrolling the monastery.

(Annette joins Byleth, Dimitri, Dedue and Felix as:)

  • Felix: Heh. Nothing like being a step behind, eh?
  • Annette: Oh! I thought we might get hungry during our patrol, so I baked up some yummy treats for us. I may have messed them up though...just a bit.
  • Dimitri: Annette... Don't tell me that explosion in the kitchen last night was–

(Seteth and Flayn join them)

  • Seteth: You seem a mite too relaxed for my liking. The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is about to begin. While we are in the Goddess Tower, we are relying on you to secure the locations that are lacking in defense.
  • Flayn: May I let you in on something, Professor? My brother can be a bit...callous. He told me that he was concerned about you, and hinted that perhaps you would be better off patrolling a coffin!

  • Flayn: Please excuse us, everyone. We shall see you again after the ceremony has concluded!

(Seteth and Flayn leave)

  • Dedue: It's time.
  • Dimitri: OK. I've narrowed the possibilities down to just a few locations that seemed especially suspect. Let's tackle them one by one. The second floor, the white tower, and deep underground, the Holy Mausoleum.

Golden Deer route Edit

Cathedral | Daytime

  • Claude: The Rite of Rebirth is finally underway. Time to see if our hunch was right.
  • Hilda: Ugh, I hope it's not. Then we wouldn't have to fight anyone.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Our hunch is right.
      • Ignatz: We've all come to this conclusion together. I'm sure we got it right.
    • Choice 2: We are mistaken.
    • Choice 3: Only the goddess knows.
  • Claude: Right or wrong, the clock is ticking. All we can do now is stick to the plan.

(Seteth and Flayn join them)

  • Seteth: You seem a mite too relaxed for my liking. The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is about to begin. While we are in the Goddess Tower, we are relying on you to secure the locations that are lacking in defense.
  • Flayn: May I let you in on something, Professor? My brother can be a bit...callous. He told me that he was concerned about you, and hinted that perhaps you would be better off patrolling a coffin!
  • Seteth: That was said in jest, Flayn. And in confidence. Please just remain by my side and do not cause any more trouble. As a professor, you would do well to remember that it is your duty to guide your students down the path of righteousness.
  • Flayn: Please excuse us, everyone. We shall see you again after the ceremony has concluded!

(Seteth and Flayn leave)

  • Hilda: Seteth is way too overprotective. He reminds me of my brother.
  • Claude: Come on, Teach. I know a hidden spot where we can monitor the stairs that lead to the Holy Mausoleum. If there's anyone down there, they'll be trapped like the rats they are. We'll just have to take them down without getting bitten.

(Byleth nods)

  • Claude: Back to the subject at hand. What I found last night was a sealed coffin in the underground Holy Mausoleum. I did some research, and the only time you can easily get in and out of that place is during the Rite of Rebirth. And because of that alleged assassination plot, it has even thinner defenses than usual. It's all too clear.

  • Hilda: Oh! The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth is almost starting. But we didn't figure out what the enemy's real plan is...
  • Claude: Worry not. I've got it all figured out.
  • Hilda: Really? I guess I shouldn't be surprised. What did you come up with?
  • Claude: Last night, I imagined myself as the enemy and prowled around the monastery. That's when Master Thief Claude came across something very interesting...

Battle: Assault at the Rite of Rebirth Edit

Black Eagles route Edit

Introduction Edit

  • Edelgard: We were right. Unwanted gusts have come to visit.
  • Mysterious Mage: Those Central Church dastards have spotted us... Buy me some time while I open the seal on the casket!
  • Western Church Soldier: I'm on it.

Player Phase One Edit

  • Edelgard: Our enemy appears to be after the tomb of Saint Serios in the back. Are they attempting to steal her bones? It would be best to defeat them before the achieve their aim.
  • Defeat the enemy general within 25 turns and protect the casket.
  • Edelgard: Look closely... There are contraptions of some sort on the floor. We must pay attention to our enemies' weapons and advance while attacking them from advantageous positions.

Enemy Phase One

  • Mysterious Mage: Death Knight! Prove your strength and scatter these fools!
  • Death Knight: I don't take commands. Or waste my time on weaklings.
  • Edelgard: That knight is a powerful enemy... Let's do all we can to avoid him.

Blue Lions route Edit

Introduction Edit

  • Dimitri: It is as we suspected. The enemy is within.
  • Mysterious Mage: Those Central Church dastards have spotted us... Buy me some time while I open the seal on the casket!
  • Western Church Soldier: I'm on it.

Player Phase One Edit

  • Dimitri: The enemy is after the casket of Saint Seiros. Do they intend to steal her bones? We must defeat those enemies before they open the casket.
  • Defeat the enemy general within 25 turns and protect the casket.
  • Dimitri: But look closely at the ground... There are contraptions of some sort in place. We'll have to look closely at the enemies' weapons and advance while attacking them from the best positions possible.

Enemy Phase One Edit

  • Mysterious Mage: Death Knight! Prove your strength and scatter these fools!
  • Death Knight: I don't take commands. Or waste my time on weaklings.
  • Dimitri: That knight looks like he has experience. It would be foolish to challenge him recklessly.

Enemy Phase Four Edit

  • Mysterious Mage: The reinforcements haven't arrived?! If they approach from behind, we can attack them from both sides...

Enemy Phase Twenty-Five (if you are curious) Edit

  • Mysterious Mage: It's no use! The seal is broken. You can't-- Huh? A sword?

(The Mysterious Mage warps away)

  • The contents of the casket were stolen... You have been defeated. Use Divine Pulse to turn back time.

Death Knight Edit

(Vs. Anyone) Edit

  • Death Knight: Like moths to a flame...

(Vs. Edelgard) Edit

  • Edelgard: There's no way around it... I accept your challenge!
  • Death Knight: Oh? This will be fun...

(Vs. Mercedes) Edit

  • Mercedes: Oh my, how frightening! Won't you please go easy on me?
  • Death Knight: You... Was this meeting...preordained?
  • Mercedes: Hmm? What do you mean?

(After first battle) Edit

  • Death Knight: I told you that if you fled, I would not chase you. But it seems you wish to die...

(Defeat) Edit

  • Death Knight: I didn't expect to encounter someone like you... How fortunate.

Mysterious Mage Edit

(Vs. Anyone) Edit

  • Mysterious Mage: You're too late! The seal will be broken any minute now...

(Defeat) Edit

  • Mysterious Mage: It's no use! The seal is broken. You can't– Huh? A sword?

(Movie: Sword of the Creator plays)

Movie: Sword of the Creator Edit

(The mysterious mage pushes back the lid of the tomb. He pulls out a sword. Byleth charges and attacks. THe sword is thrown out of the mage's hands. Byleth catches it. The mage prepares a magical attack. Byleth unthinkingly uses the sword to block the attack, and the sword begins to glow with power.)

Mysterious Mage: Huh... What?

(Byleth throws aside their other sword and faces the mage, who retreats. Cornered, the mage prepares a magical attack. Byleth overpowers and defeats the mage. As they stand by the tomb, they ponder the magical sword. There is an empty space in the pommel where something appears to be missing.)

After Battle Edit

If Death Knight is not defeated Edit

Blue Lions route Edit

  • Death Knight: That sword is...I see. What a pleasant surprise. (Death Knight transports)
  • Dimitri: He got away... We have no choice but to let them go for now. Professor... The way that sword is glowing. I wonder...

Battle Ending Edit

  • Catherine: Is the intruder here?! Oh... Looks like you have this under control. You! Round up any stragglers.
  • Knight of Seiros: Will do!

Event: Judgement Edit

Cathedral | Daytime Edit

  • Seteth: As all of you have committed a breach of faith, the archbishop will now pass judgement.
  • Shamir: Inciting a Kingdom noble to rebel. Unlawful entry. The attempted assassination of the archbishop. An attack on the Holy Mausoleum. It is unnecessary to go on, followers of the Western Church.
  • Priest: What?! We have nothing to do with the Western Church!
  • Seteth: You have already been identified. Please spare us your second-rate theater.
  • Rhea: Dishonoring a holy ceremony is worthy of death for a member of the church. You are well past the hope of redemption. If you have any grace remaining, you will willingly offer your life as atonement for this crime.
  • Priest: No! This isn't what we were told would happen! We've been deceived!
  • Shamir: It's no use arguing. Whatever your excuse, the punishment stands.
  • Rhea: May your souls find peace as they return to the goddess...
  • Priest: Wait! Please! The goddess would never forgive you for our execution!
  • Priest: Monster! We know you've already slaughtered many of our fellow brethren like this!
  • Rhea: This concludes the investigation. Please remove these poor, lost souls from my sight.

Black Eagles route Edit

(Camera pans back to reveal Edelgard watching)

  • Edelgard: ...

Black Eagle Classroom

  • Edelgard: That's that, I suppose. The assassination attempt, the attack on the Holy Mausoleum... It was all the Western Church's doing. That masked knight who led the attack somehow managed to disappear without a trace.
  • Hubert: The Church of Seiros clearly isn't as unified as it would hope to appear. It seems the bishop of the Western Church was always opposed to the church being ruled centrally from Garreg Mach. Perhaps they hope to remove the archbishop in order to completely strip the Central Church of its authority.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: The Western Church...
    • Choice 2: The Central Church?
  • Edelgard: Ugh, that's right. Jeralt mentioned that you were raised without any exposure to the church. In order to function more efficiently, the Church of Seiros is split into several smaller entities. The Central Church is the largest and leads the organization from Garreg Mach.

(Map of showing the location of the Western Church in comparison to Garreg Mach)

  • Hubert: The Western Church extends from Castle Gaspard, where Lord Lonato rebelled into the far west. They can be found just beyond the most renowned stronghold of the Kingdom, the Fortress City of Arianrhod.
  • Edelgard: It seems the knights have been tasked with subduing the leaders of the Western Church. We may be give an opportunity to help them with their mission.
  • Hubert: To think...our own professor was born in Fódlan and yet knew nothing of the church. I never imagined explaining something so basic to an instructor of mine. You're something of a special case, are you not?
  • Edelgard: How strange that the archbishop would ask someone like that to lead her students. There's clearly more to that decision than we know.
  • Caspar: Lady Rhea is pretty scary sometimes...but to execute that whole group just like that? It seems harsh, even for her.
  • Bernadetta: If one of us does something bad, I wonder what she would do to us!
  • Dorothea: Professor... Do you agree with the archbishop's actions?

(Seteth joins them)

  • Seteth: There you are, Professor. It seems Lady Rhea would like a word with you. Come with me.

Blue Lions route Edit

(Camera pans back to reveal Dimitri watching)

  • Dimitri: ...

Blue Lions Classroom

  • Dimitri: There you have it... It seems that the assassination attempt and the attack on the Holy Mausoleum were all the work of the Western Church. As for the masked knight who led the attack... I'm afraid his whereabouts are yet unknown.
  • Dedue: It makes no sense that the Western Church would try such a thing.
  • Dimitri: It just goes to show that the Church of Seiros is not completely united. The church is led by those here in Garreg Mach, and the Western Church doesn't have a strong voice on its governing council. I imagine the Western Church has harbored some resentment towards the Central Church for a while now.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: The Western Church...
    • Choice 2: The Central Church?
  • Dimitri: Ah, that's right. Jeralt did say that you grew up outside the influence of the church. The Church of Seiros is split into a few branches across Fódlan. The largest being the Central Church, which is headquartered right here at Garreg Mach.

(Map of showing the location of the Western Church in comparison to Garreg Mach)

  • Dimitri: The Western Church lies far to the west of Castle Gaspard, where Lord Lonato held his rebellion. It's situated on the far side of the Kingdom's most impressive fortress, Arianrhod. I imagine the Western Church's intention was to eliminate Lady Rhea, and the Central Church's authority along with her. Naturally, the knights will be riding out to question the Western Church's top officials. Or rather...to punish them.
  • Dedue: When they do, Your Highness, we will likely be asked to carry out said punishment.
  • Dimitri: Indeed. Now, I don't mean to be rude, Professor, but I must say that your situation is rather unusual. For someone to grow up in Fódlan and yet never have any contact with the Church of Seiros is...it's hard to believe.
  • Dedue: I wonder why the archbishop would hire someone like that as a professor...
  • Ashe: So...those people from the Western Church were... Um, Lady Rhea had them killed, didn't she?
  • Mercedes: Well, of course she did. Going against the teachings of Seiros like that. Quite unforgivable!
  • Ingrid: Those who stray must be punished, I suppose. That said... Professor, I–

(Seteth joins them)

  • Seteth: There you are, Professor. It seems Lady Rhea would like a word with you. Come with me.

Event: Slithering in the Dark Edit

  • ???: The archbishop lives. Not that I had ever placed much faith in those swine from the Western Church.
  • ???: I have news, both good and bad. The remains of Seiros were not in the tomb. However, something else was. The Sword of the Creator.
  • ???: Ah, the weapon wielded by that thief, the King of Liberation.
  • ???: Thief? Hm. At any rate, it is now in the hands of the academy's new professor. I doubt you will be surprised to hear that the Crest Stone had already been removed from the sword when it was found.
  • ???: Hmph. As expected. It would be foolish to keep both in the same location.
  • ???: There's more. The professor was able to awaken the sword's true power. Even without the Crest Stone, the sword glowed red. The professor's Crest is compatible. There is no mistaking it.
  • ???: Absurb. Using a Relic without its Crest Stone should be impossible... The King of Liberation's bloodline should not even... Hmm.
  • ???: They must be allowed to keep it, for now. I do not have enough information about the professor to act. As for your request, I assent. The Death Knight is at your command. Use him well.
  • ???: Good. I believe I will enjoy this a great deal...

Report: Blue Sea Moon Edit

Audience Chamber | Daytime

  • Rhea: I cannot thank you enough for defeating those invaders in the Holy Mausoleum, and especially for protecting the Sword of the Creator. That sword is one of the Heroes' Relics, and the most precious artifact in the church's possession. It is also a weapon of terrifying power. For now...I will entrust the sword to you. Please, use it wisely.
  • Seteth: Lady Rhea, wait! Do you truly mean to give the Sword of the Creator to this stranger?! Surely it is not the sort of thing that one hands over so readily, even to someone who has the ability to wield it! If someone like Nemesis were to appear again, all of Fódlan would be consumed by war!
  • Byleth: Nemesis?
  • Seteth: Nemesis, the King of Liberation. He is an ancient king of mankind who was defeated by Seiros over a thousand years ago. When Fódlan was attacked by wicked gods, it is said that the goddess gifted Nemesis with the Sword of the Creator. Nemesis used that sword to defeat the wicked gods, saving all of Fódlan. Henceforth he was dubbed the King of Liberation. However, his power began to corrupt him until he, himself, turned to the darkness. Saint Seiros was forced to destroy him. Lady Rhea, I beg you to reconsider. Given a little more time, we could more accurately assess this stranger's abilities.
  • Rhea: No. I have faith, Seteth. Faith that our friend here will not be corrupted by wickedness. Since the death of Nemesis, none have been able to wield the Sword of the Creator. Now, after all those long years of being sealed away, it has returned and found a new master.
  • Seteth: I...understand. As you wish, Lady Rhea. There you have it, Professor. See that you do not betray the trust the archbishop has seen fit to bestow upon you.

(Cutscene to hallway as Byleth leaves the Audience Chamber)

  • Sothis: The Sword of the Creator. The King of Liberation. Each tale is more confusing than the last! And I really can't read that Rhea at all... That sword is clearly precious... So why is she so keen to gift the thing to you?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: It certainly is strange.
    • Choice 2: The sword chose me.
      • Sothis: Is that a fact?
  • Sothis: I feel as though we have become tangled in a mystery... And there is one more thing that has been plaguing me. The Sword of the Creator... It somehow feels distinct from other Relics we have seen. Such as the one that... Oh goodness, what was her name? Ca... Cat...
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Catherine?
    • Choice 2: Cat?
  • Sothis:
    • Choice 1 response: Yes! Her! The Sword of the Creator is different from her Thunderbrand in one key way.
    • Choice 2 response: What is wrong with that head of yours? Of course it's not a cat! Her name is Catherine. The Sword of the Creator differs from her Thunderbrand in one key way.
  • It bears a hole...where something should have been, but is no more. I despise not knowing what is going on! It...it frightens me. And yet... I place my trust in you. I must. Whatever comes to pass...please swear to cut a path that is your own.
