Edelgard: Ah, Ferdinand. I hadn't realized you'd returned to the palace.
Ferdinand: Yes, here I am. Not that I have official business like you.
Edelgard: Then why come such a long way- Ah, I see. You're here to visit your father.
Ferdinand: I am ashamed to say this was my first time seeing him in his cell. My father insisted I stay away for my own safety. Though I must confess, the dungeon was not the horrid place I had imagined it to be. I was envisioning...you know. Fiery hot pokers, spikes...that manner of thing.
Edelgard: Oh? Then it may interest you to know that we do actually have such a dungeon. I've only seen it once, myself. It's...further down from where we're keeping the former duke. It's a dismal place, one where rats scurry to and fro.
Ferdinand: Rats? I do not imagine that Father would cope well with that at all. While he did look haggard, it sounds as though his treatment could be far, far worse.
Edelgard: We're doing our best to keep him in good health-the rest will depend on his frame of mind.
Ferdinand: Well, you will hear no complaints from me. I care only that he is kept alive and given a fair trial. And that his punishment fits the crime, of course.
Edelgard: You'd better speed things along then, because Hubert is quickly losing patience.
Ferdinand: A fact I am very well aware. The problem is that I remain unable to connect my father to many of the acts he is accused of.
Edelgard: Perhaps you're wasting your time. A noble as powerful as your father could easily have documents forged and witnesses bought off. Any records that remain will be considered far too dubious to prove guilt or innocence.
Ferdinand: Another fact I am very much aware of... In truth...I already found proof some time ago. Proof of his corruption that is. I discovered it while looking through his tax records. When I realized what he had done, I was ready to serve him up to the authorities myself.
Edelgard: Your own father? I'm surprised to hear you say that.
Ferdinand: I mean it. I thought I could carefully build a solid case against him while studying at the academy. However, you had him clapped in irons before I could have my case organized. Heh. Now there is a bit of comedy. I idolized my father since I was a child. Yet I had to push those feelings aside in order to muster the anger to punish him. Now I find myself trapped between both of those emotions with no resolution in sight.
Edelgard: I see. And tell me, is that the end of your story? I thought you were going to become prime minister. Keep me in check. Surpass me, even.
Ferdinand: Oh! Uh, well, I did not mean...
Edelgard: You can still share words with your father and see him punished for his crimes, you know. So if you desire resolution, start resolving matters. It's never too late.

Ferdinand: Hm...
Edelgard: You're in better spirits than I expected. You look at least two shades less pale than you did after the battle at Fort Merceus.
Ferdinand: Oh, but Your Majesty does enjoy telling it like it is! Would it be the end of you to show a little compassion? No. Then you would be pitying me. I do not know which is worse. Regardless, I am well. Thank you for noticing. Ask of me what you will, and I shall see it done.
Edeglard: I don't need anything from you, Ferdinand-or at least not in that way. Just give me your usual effort, and that should be enough to get us through the upcoming battle.
Ferdinand: You can count on me. Point me at a foe, and I will dispatch them with all haste. I cannot afford to die now, or my page in the history books will end in a most horrid fashion. "Plagued by the guilt of striking down his father, Ferdinand welcomed the cold embrace of death on the battlefield." Or some such hogwash. Yes, I killed my father-and I would be a liar if I said it did not wound me nearly beyond reckoning. But I will not hate myself for it. It was the correct choice. I did the right thing.
Edelgard: Well, don't feel too bad. Imagine what they would write about me if we lose this war. "Despite her futile attempts to wrest power from the prime minister, the emperor's people turned against her and her life ended in abject failure. The end." I know exactly what the world would say of me, which is why I have no intention of losing.
Ferdinand: I will not permit such a thing to happen. If ever my life were to be weighed against yours, I would gladly perish in ignominy if it meant keeping you alive and well.
Edelgard: Heh.
Ferdinand: What? Did I say something amusing?
Edelgard: No, it's just... You're so strong. So proud. If all the world's nobles were like you, there would be no need to dismantle the aristocracy. That's all. I know it's a futile thought.
Ferdinand: Nothing is futile! Though even I must admit it seems to be so, given the circumstances. Still, you vastly underestimate the potential of the aristocracy. For generations, our ancestors worked hand in hand, sharing knowledge and wisdom to administer our great land and ensure it was well-protected. They acquired knowledge of the region and developed good policies to rule it. And in doing so, they earned the trust of the people. We cannot throw away everything they have built. It would be folly.
Edelgard: Of course not. What do you take me for? I'm dismantling the aristocracy, not their legacy. The commonfolk will take up the torch and carry on.
Ferdinand: Do you believe they are ready? No matter how gifted they would be, they are only commoners. In order to replace the nobility, they need to be educated... Wait a moment. I see your plan now. You intend to establish a school, one is that not merely for nobles and wealthy merchant children like the Officers Academy once was. A school where anyone can enroll, regardless of wealth or standing, and get an education rivaling that of any noble!
Edelgard: Ferdinand? I cannot guess where that idea sprung from, but this is exactly why I need you beside me as we shape the future of Adrestia.
Ferdinand: You mean to say that you did not actually... So I was... Well, it is nice to be needed.

Linhardt: Hmm... Yes, that looks right.
Ferdinand: Why hello, Linhardt. It is not often I find you drawing outside.
Linhardt: I'm not drawing. I'm simply trying to capture this wyvern's form. See? It's resting on that hill over there.
Ferdinand: Ah, an extraordinary sight indeed. Now then, let us see what you have done so far. I must say, it feels as though something is lacking in your work. How can I describe it? Your depiction is almost too accurate. Take these scales, for example. Why, they could have been plucked from the very wyvern itself.
Linhardt: I told you, this isn't art. I'm doing it for my research. And when conducting research, it's always best to have precise references. The same is true when dealing with numbers or gathering information.
Ferdinand: I see. So you value accuracy above all else.
Linhardt: Right. Honestly, I've never quite understood art anyway. So I'm perfectly content leaving that sort of thing to the true creatives. You know, the quirky ones. People like Bernadetta.
Ferdinand: Even so, there may come a day when your work is seen as the craft of a master artisan. When such precision is lauded as the height of aesthetic genius.
Linhardt: What makes you say that?
Ferdinand: Oh, merely a passing thought. Perhaps in the distant future, connoisseurs will value accuracy and attention to detail over the magnificent interpretive pieces we hold dear today.
Linhardt: Do you really think that'll happen, though? I doubt people will ever stop appreciating the ancient classics. You certainly have always done so.
Ferdinand: Yes, there is no denying that. But I fear my own personal inclinations hold little sway over public opinion. Nobody knows what trends may arise in the decades and centuries to come. So I can indeed envision a future in which accurate depictions are praised just the same as the greats of old. And I encourage you to do the same, my friend!
Linhardt: I don't get it. How are you so optimistic all the time? It's like you're constantly looking toward the future.
Ferdinand: I could say quite the same about you. I have always believed you to be rather forward-thinking.
Linhardt: That's not optimism, though. All I'm thinking forward to is the time when I can just sleep the days away. That's why I'm forcing myself to be as active as I can now.
Ferdinand: Regrettably, those halcyon days of slumber are still but a distant dream. I have much work for you, both now and further down the road. To begin with, might I ask you to paint my portrait?
Linhardt: For the last time, I'm a researcher, not an artist. Are you sure you want such a faithful depiction?
Ferdinand: That is exactly what I want. How else would my yet-unborn descendants know the true visage of the great Ferdinand von Aegir? Indeed, I would be proud to submit myself as a subject of your research. Consider it a study in the personification of nobility itself.
Linhardt: Ugh, don't get ahead of yourself. I'm fine drawing you, but I don't have the slightest modicum of interest in actually researching you. Though I do sometimes wonder where you get all that unabashed confidence from.
