Reception Hall

(The sound of rain can be heard outside the reception hall)
Manuela: It's raining, Professor. On rainy days, the wound I got from the Death Knight hurts like fire. Every time it aches, I get angry. You understand, yeah?
Manuela: I'm sure they had their reasons to kidnap Flayn, but still... Did they really need to stab me? What'd I have to do with it?! They ruined my beautiful, porcelain skin. Worse, they took off before I could stab them back. So rude.
(Just then, Hanneman happens to pass by and intervenes.)
Hanneman: That's rather enough, Manuela. Cease your moaning and give the professor a break.
Manuela: Oh, stuff it, Hanneman. Unlike you, the professor has a big heart and listens to me talk about any problem I have.
Hanneman: More likely, your incessant ramblings offer no chance to interrupt.
Manuela: Is that true, Professor?

Choice 1 Choice 2
Manuela isn't bothering me. Professor Hanneman is right.
(Support points with Manuela go up.)
Manuela: I knew it. You listen to me because you care about me, don't you?
(Support points with Hanneman go up.)
Hanneman: You heard that, didn't you, Manuela? You are bothering the professor.

Manuela: Go away, Hanneman! Leave us alone. And stop making me shout! It causes the old wound to hurt again.
Hanneman: Then perhaps you'd best stay quiet. Keep your emotions in check, I'd say.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's stop this now. Let's all get along.

Manuela: Don't worry, Professor. We do this all the time.
Hanneman: Indeed, Manuela and I do not mix well. Been true for years. That said, if it were up to me, I would prefer speaking to her in a calmer manner.
Manuela: It's not like I enjoy bickering with you. So, maybe keep your mouth shut more often.
Hanneman: I state that which needs to be heard! For example—
(Byleth fears how much this will escalate...)

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's stop this now. Let's all get along.

(Manuela and Hanneman catch up with Byleth's worry.)
Manuela: I'm sorry. I couldn't help it...
Hanneman: Same, same. Apologies. I am here because I have new information on the Death Knight's hiding place.
Manuela: What? Really?! You could have started with that.
Hanneman: Several students have reported possible sightings on the western edge of the Sealed Forest. While the authenticity of these reports has yet to be verified, it is still a very real possibility. I was thinking I would report this to Seteth as a precaution.
Manuela: What? Why? We can't be slow! He's going to get away!
Hanneman: Protocol on this matter requires reporting to Seteth, then Lady Rhea, then...
(Manuela switches her view to Byleth.)
Manuela: Professor, let's leave this old geezer behind and get going!
Hanneman: Old geezer? I am barely 15 years your senior! I will not hear such—
Manuela: Stop talking! Let's gather a team and get going!

Choice 1 Choice 2
I agree. (Begin Paralogue battle) Not yet... (Return to previous screen)
Manuela: I'll go scout ahead. I'm coming for you, Death Knight!
(Manuela runs away.)
Hanneman: Manuela, wait! It would not do to get yourself killed without someone to avenge you!
Manuela: Well, I'm going ahead anyway. You can't stop me.
Hanneman: Manuela, take a moment. You must prepare before heading out! Professor, please let me know as soon as you can if could join us.

Battle: Oil and Water


Before Battle

Hanneman: Manuela's in a tough spot, Professor. Even if she's only got herself to blame, we cannot abandon her.

Bandit Leader: Heh... We have plenty of visitors today. Let's stop their annoying rescue attempt!

Player Phase 1

(Near the area where Manuela has ended up in...)
Bandit: Now that is a woman...

Manuela: Uh-oh. They've noticed me. Here they come!

Bandit Leader Notices Manuela is Fleeing

Bandit Leader: What a bunch of meddlesome losers... Maybe we should take a hostage for leverage! Capture that woman! We'll show them what the Death God Gang's made of!

Manuela: Death God Gang? What kind of childish nonsense— Where's the Death Knight?

Archer/Sniper Thief Begins to Run Away

Bandit: Just when I decide to disguise myself as a mountain bandit and sneak in, we get attacked. Just my luck!

Thieves carrying treasure have started to retreat.
Retrieve the treasure by defeating the thieves before they escape.

Boss - Bandit Leader

Vs Anyone:

We are the Death God Gang! We're all unstoppable!
— Bandit Leader Vs Anyone

Vs Hanneman:

Hanneman: Why, there is no Death Knight here. That student's testimony was, well, it was utter bunk!
Bandit Leader: Hey, you! The weird old dude with the beard! What kinda crap are you mumbling to yourself there?
Hanneman: I beg your pardon?! Do not imagine you can insult me without some form of retribution!

— Bandit Leader Vs Hanneman

Vs Manuela:

Manuela: Hey! You're not the Death Knight! What gives?
Bandit Leader: Death Knight? What nonsense are you talking now? Do we look like knights to you, lady?
Manuela: You're just lousy hill bandits. Well, I'll teach you to waste my time!

— Bandit Leader Vs Manuela

Bandit Leader Falls

Hanneman: Manuela, are you uninjured?
Manuela: A few scrapes and bruises. But, yes, I'm well enough.


(Back in the Reception Hall...)
Manuela: How could anyone think that was the Death Knight? It was obviously just an ordinary bandit. Oh well, I may not have found my revenge, but at least we got to retrieve stolen goods.
Hanneman: Manuela! You unthinking fool!
Manuela: Hanneman, I've heard enough already.
Hanneman: How bloody stupid are you?! If that were the real Death Knight, you'd have new—likely fatal—wounds to match your first! Do you know how much you worried all of us? You should be ashamed!
Manuela: Oh no...

Choice 1 Choice 2
Relax. She's OK. Hanneman's right.
Hanneman: This is a matter of life and death! It should not and must not be taken lightly! Manuela: Exactly! You are supposed to set an example for our students. Yet you let emotion get the better of you?

Manuela: You're right... So there, I said that. It's true, but, ugh. I'm sorry. I'll apologize to everyone later.
Hanneman: I should say I'm sorry as well. I lost my temper just now. I see you act so irrationally, and I lose my wits. I care about you a great deal, and wish to see you safe.
Hanneman: Will you believe me?
Manuela: Yes, of course. I'm the same way, after all. I let my emotions get the best of me. We're both too old to be shouting all the time.

So, everyone is friends again?

Manuela: You're awfully quick to put a bow on this. Are you sick of us already, Professor?
Hanneman: You're part of this, Professor. We are the only teachers this academy has. No need for bickering!
Manuela: Well said, Hanneman. Would you care to join me for a celebratory drink?
Hanneman: That sounds lovely. Perhaps a nice cup of tea is in order.
(Both Hanneman and Manuela leave as Byleth remains confused.)
Byleth: ...
