Entrance Hall

(Marianne is seen running away from someone...)
Crest Scholar: There's no reason to feign ignorance. I know all about you!
Marianne: Wh-what are you talking about?
Crest Scholar: Just come here!
(Byleth happens to pass by.)
Marianne: Professor! Help!
Crest Scholar: Don't interfere. Just hand the girl over to me.


(Byleth stands defiant.)
Crest Scholar: I'm telling you this for your own good. You're putting yourself in danger by associating with her.
Marianne: ...
Crest Scholar: Do you know of the Wandering Beast stalking the woods in the Edmund territory? It is said that it attacks people every night and drags them off to feast.
Crest Scholar: The true identity of the Wandering Beast... Is that girl right there!
Marianne: No! I would never...

Get out of here!

Crest Scholar: No matter. I'll get the evidence I need...
(The Crest Scholar retreats from the scene.)

Marianne: My apologies for getting you involved in that...

What happened?

Marianne: In truth, that man has been following me ever since my father disappeared... He's a Crest scholar.

Why is he following you?

Marianne: The Crest that my father bore and was passed down to me... It was... Maurice's Crest.

Maurice's Crest?

Marianne: Yes. It's also known as...the Crest of the Beast...
Marianne: It's said there were once 12 heroes who saved Fódlan. There was the King of Liberation, Nemesis...the 10 Elites, and finally...Maurice. One day, Maurice suddenly transformed into a hideous beast and slaughtered innocent people. It was like when Miklan of House Gautier turned into a Black Beast.
Marianne: The negative energy dwelling within his Crest turned Maurice into a monster. The people of Fódlan grew to despise him, and he was stripped of his honor. His whole clan was conquered, and it was believed that his bloodline had vanished... But even now, there exist a few descendants who have inherited Maurice's Crest, and his curse. My family one of them.
Marianne: Maurice's Crest is a symbol of disaster. Anyone who comes in contact with it is met with great misfortune. Those who carry the Crest become beasts at night and slaughter innocent people.

What that man mentioned earlier...

Marianne: Yes, the rumor about the Wandering Beast in the woods... People are saying the creature is similar in appearance to Maurice's bestial form.

If it's defeated, wouldn't the rumor be dispelled?

Marianne: That may be true but...I doubt I could do it on my own. If you and some of the others came with me though...

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's go. (Begin Paralogue battle) I'll think about it. (Return to previous screen)
Marianne: Thank you! But, um... Promise you won't tell anyone about my Crest? Marianne: It is my personal matter, so I can't expect you to get involved. But if you change your mind...I'll be waiting.

Battle: Forgotten Hero

Forest (Edmund Territory)

Before Battle

(In the middle of the forest, far away from the crew...)
Marianne: A-are you really the Wandering Beast that people talk about?
Wandering Beast: You... Do you bear our Crest? For what purpose did you come here?
Marianne: Our Crest? Does that mean...
Wandering Beast: It appears that your presence has been detected by bloodthirsty Demonic Beasts...

First Demonic Beast is Fought

Marianne: Demonic Beasts? Everyone... Please move carefully!
Wandering Beast: This forest is the den of Demonic Beasts. You will be lucky to make it out alive.

Marianne Confronts a Wolf Near the Wandering Beast

Marianne: This one looks like a wolf!

Byleth Talks to Marianne

Marianne: You saved me, Professor... Thank you. The Wandering Beast's true form... Could it be... Oh! Sorry! I need to focus on the fight!

If Marianne's Low on Health

Marianne: Dear Goddess... My soul is yours to take...

If Marianne Falls

Marianne: Dear Goddess... My soul is yours to take...

If an Ally Approaches the Wandering Beast

Wandering Beast: My beastly blood is roused... You will not be able to stop me!

Boss - Wandering Beast

Vs Anyone:

Nothing will stop me...from feasting upon your flesh and blood!
— Wandering Beast Vs Anyone

Vs Byleth:

That sword... It's the sword of the king! Are you the one who can liberate me?!
— Wandering Beast Vs Byleth

Vs Claude:

Claude: That looks just like Miklan's Black Beast... Could a Hero's Relic be at fault?
Wandering Beast: Hero... There is a word that takes me back.
Claude: Takes you back? You... Are you...
Wandering Beast: After so long, I cannot speak of it.

— Wandering Beast Vs Claude

Wandering Beast: Well done... Finally, this nightmare of a thousand years is at its end. Oh, inheritor of my Crest...if this body is to decay, then the sword... I leave it to you...
Marianne: ...

Entrance Hall

(Back from Edmund's woods...)
Marianne: I still can't believe what we saw in that forest... The Wandering Beast's eviscerated body... Only human bones and this sword remaining.
(Marianne shows Byleth an ancient looking sword.)

FETH Blutgang.png

Marianne: Surely the creature's true identity was...
(Suddenly, the Crest Scholar from earlier reappears.)
Crest Scholar: I'm sorry...
Marianne: You again?
Crest Scholar: I heard rumor that the Wandering Beast was slain, but do you really believe that frees you of suspicion? Without proof that it was slain, the argument that you are not a beast does not stand. Furthermore, I—
(The man looks at Marianne's sword.)
Crest Scholar: Huh? Oh! That sword!
Marianne: When the Wandering Beast was defeated, this sword...
Crest Scholar: It's unmistakable! Carved into that sword's Crest stone is Maurice's Crest! But how would the lost Magic Blade end up with the Wandering Beast? According to what I know of Maurice's story, he didn't let go of the sword until the very end. That must mean...
(Something lights up within the Crest Scholar's mind.)
Crest Scholar: I see. So that's what happened... My apologies, it seems I was mistaken. I must be going.
(The Crest Scholar leaves in silence.)

Marianne: So the Wandering Beast was...

Choice 1 Choice 2
Maurice himself. Someone who bears the Crest of the Beast.
Marianne: No, I'm sure that was Maurice himself.

Marianne: He was roaming the dark woods for over a thousand years, suffering for his murderous past.

Good thing you were able to put an end to it.

Marianne: It's true... And because of that, I feel as curse has been lifted. The blood of a beast no longer flows through me. I feel human for once.
(As Byleth nods, Marianne's face shows a sign of relief.)
Marianne: Thank you, Professor. I couldn't have done it on my own. Without your help, I would never have found peace. I'll do anything I can to repay my debt to you!
