From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

Introduction

???

(Somewhere in Byleth's subconscious, something troubles Sothis...)
Sothis: Hmmm... What was that name again?

What's on your mind?

Sothis: Oh, this is frustrating me to no end! I simply can't recall.
Sothis: Oh, I have it! Zanado!

Choice 1 Choice 2 Choice 3
Zanado, the Red Canyon? Where we defeated the thieves... What is that?
Sothis: That's it! It was not long ago that we were there... And still, I somehow managed to forget! Sothis: That's it! It was not long ago that we were there... And still, I somehow managed to forget! Sothis: Oh my, your memory is even worse than mine. It was not long ago that we were there!


What about it?

Sothis: Well... That place brought back some fragments of my memory. I cannot help but wonder why. I feel we must return to find some answers there.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's go. (Begin Paralogue battle) Now isn't the time. (Return to previous screen)
Sothis: Yes, you are right! For as the saying goes, there is no time like the present. Sothis: No? You must delight in spoiling my mood... Well, if you refuse to go, there's little I can do...
Sothis: Please tell me if you change your mind.

(As Byleth passes by the Entrance Hall, Edelgard and Hubert catch a glimpse of them walking away....)
Edelgard: Hmm... Our professor is sneaking off alone. Where to, I wonder...
Hubert: I don't recall hearing of any such plans for our class. Perhaps we should follow.
Edelgard: Intrigued, are we? Yes, let's do just that. We will consider it...extra training.

Zanado, The Red Canyon*

(Byleth and Sothis admire the scenery.)
Sothis: Yes... It is all coming back to me. This structure... Oh, but it's as though my memories are clouded. The most important pieces are obscured. But I once called this home. I have no doubt.
Sothis: I seem to recall something...on the other side of that wall. I cannot see it, but I can still feel it... It is not my imagination. I know this to be true. We are already deep within this valley...

???: Grrrraargh!
Sothis: Oh! What was that awful sound?!

Choice 1 Choice 2
You heard something? It was a terrible scream.
Sothis: This is no time to joke around! Do not pretend you didn't hear! Sothis: Yes. And that was not a normal beast, but a huge and terrifying one!

Sothis: Look! There! At the entrance of the valley... a giant shadow!

Battle: Tales of the Red Canyon

Before Battle

Wild Demonic Beast: Graaargh!
Sothis: What is it now?!
(Multiple monsters are lured by the Wild Demonic Beast's scream.)
Sothis: Those hungry wolves... That howl must have riled them up. We have no choice but to fight our way out. Give it your all!

(Far behind Byleth, their students rush their way towards them as they're being chased by monsters...)

Hubert: It's good we've caught up with the professor, but this situation is—hard to put into words, actually.
Edelgard: Wolves to the front, hawks to the rear, and what appears to be a Demonic Beast at the canyon's mouth...
Hubert: A wild beast, at that. Or perhaps it's more fitting to call it a stray.
Edelgard: If we can't prevail over that Demonic Beast, we won't make it out of the Red Canyon alive.

Player Phase 1

Edelgard: The first thing we need to do is reunite with our professor. The wolves are closing in...

Wild Demonic Beast Summons Monsters

Wild Demonic Beast: Graaargh!
(The monster advances as more Giant Birds appear.)

Black Eagles Black Eagles Blue Lions Blue Lions Golden Deer Golden Deer

Edelgard: More hawks... This is bad. We'll be caught from both sides!

Wild Demonic Beast Summons Even More Monsters

Wild Demonic Beast: Graaargh!
(The monster advances as even more Giant Birds appear.)

Black Eagles Black Eagles Blue Lions Blue Lions Golden Deer Golden Deer

If Edelgard has not reached Byleth...

Edelgard: More hawks... And our professor is still trapped out there!

However, if Edelgard has reached Byleth...

Edelgard: The hawks are still coming. Perhaps we should see to those before we deal with the beast.

Boss - Wild Demonic Beast

Vs Byleth:

Wild Demonic Beast: Graaaargh!
Sothis: This thing... It has no will or mind to call its own. You must now strike it down! That is the best you can hope to offer this poor, lost soul.
Byleth: ...

— Wild Demonic Beast Vs Byleth

Vs Flayn:

Flayn: Let us put an end to its suffering. I think that is the most honorable thing we can do at this point.
— Wild Demonic Beast Vs Flayn

Vs Claude:

Claude: Do you think it was once a human, like Miklan? No... It's not possible...
— Wild Demonic Beast Vs Claude

After Battle

Sothis: Our work is done? My, my... Things did not go as planned. Let us return, before any more hawks or wolves join us. But what was that Demonic Beast doing within the Red Canyon...

Ending

(Now that Byleth and their students are done with the monsters...)

Edelgard: I'm glad that you are safe, Professor. It was rather reckless of you to venture out alone like that.
Hubert: I suppose we came out here without permission too. If we all wish to avoid punishment... Perhaps we can all agree that we came out here for an extra-curricular activity. Let's leave it at that.
Edelgard: Still, I would like to know what brought you to this valley in the first place...

(Some time later...)

???

Sothis: Oh dear... I put us in a bit of danger there! We are most fortunate that those delinquents followed us... You very nearly met your end! What a marvelous professor you must be, for all your students to be so concerned.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I'm proud of us. I'm not used to it yet.
(Support points with Sothis go up.)
Sothis: Hmm, you seem more confident in your ability to teach. But that makes sense, as you have me to help you out.
Sothis: You are not used to it? Hm. You must start thinking of yourself as a professor here. Be confident, as you have me to help you out.

Sothis: How disappointing to have dived so deeply into danger, and yet to have nothing to show.
Sothis: Huh? What is this...strange feeling...
(Something is illuminated within Sothis's memories...)
Sothis: My memories... Do you feel them stirring? How curious. You seem to have grown stronger! And all thanks to our journey to Zanado. It really was worth all that effort!

I found something...

Sothis: Huh? You found this? I daresay you may find a use for that. You should decide how best to use that thing. But wow! We got a lot out of this trip.
Sothis: It was a bother for a spell, but in the end, I feel we should think fondly of our little trip. We actually had a delightful time, wouldn't you say?
