Event - A Decisive Battle

Date: 6/1
Entrance Hall

(Byleth and Claude discuss the upcoming fight.)
Claude: It's almost time to invade the Imperial capital. We still don't know where Rhea is, but if she's alive, she's likely in Enbarr. Hopefully we manage to find her without too much trouble.

Choice 1 Choice 2
We need to save her quickly. I wonder if she's alive.
Claude: I know, but if we're not careful she'll just be whisked away again. Claude: If the Empire has some reason to keep Rhea alive, then she's alive.

Claude: I'm sure you must be anxious to see her again.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I need to see her again. All I care about right now is saving her.
Claude: I understand. You need to see Rhea again so you can figure out who you really are. Claude: Well, if that's what you want, I'll do my best to make it happen.

Claude: But we're going up against Edelgard here... It won't be so simple

Dining Hall

(Meanwhile, in the Dining Hall....)
Hilda: Our next stop is the Imperial capital. We've sure come a long way.
Raphael: What're you talking about? This is Garreg Mach! It's where we started.
Hilda: I didn't mean literally, Raphael. I was speaking symbolically!
Lorenz: My earnest desire to protect the Alliance has carried me this far. It will not fail me.
Lorenz: I am sure the rest of you all have your own reasons to fight as well. Of course, I understand that the fight will not end until we defeat the Empire... And now the time has arrived at long last to march on the Imperial capital and defeat the emperor...
Hilda: It really gets you thinking, doesn't it? We all come from different places and have different goals and dreams. But thanks to those two, we were all able to come together and overcome all sorts of challenges.
Lysithea: You are referring to Claude and the professor, I assume. Even within our own odd group, those two are particularly unusual.
Hilda: Oh! So, you are aware that you're odd!
Lysithea: Well... That's... It was simply a figure of speech. I am speaking about Claude and the professor right now!
Marianne: They're like the wind and the trees...
Hilda: Huh? Claude and the professor are? What does that even mean, and who is which?
Marianne: Oh, um... I was just thinking that if we're the birds, then those two are like the trees and the wind.
Marianne: The professor is a great tree that kindly embraces us and watches over us as we perch on its branches... And Claude is like the wind, pushing us forward as we soar across the open sky...
Hilda: Hm. The metaphor about the professor is solid, but I think Claude just blows us around on a whim. Still, we owe him a lot.
Ignatz: I think that's beautiful, Marianne. I can really picture it.
Ignatz: When the war is over, I'd love to paint a picture of those two. Oh! And of all the people we've fought with as well!
Leonie: You mean like a historical painting? I like that! Maybe our descendants will look at it a long, long time from now...
Lorenz: I must say, that piques my interest. I look forward to seeing how you portray my valiant efforts.
Leonie: When you put it that way, we may be witnessing one of the greatest events in Fódlan's history. It's a lot of pressure, but the sense of duty I feel is even stronger than the fear.
Raphael: I'm just happy to be here with all of you! I won't get scared, no matter what we face!
Hilda: We have our goal. Enbarr, the Imperial Capital. Let's get to work!

Narration - The Enbarr Infiltration

After making preparations at Garreg Mach, the Alliance army marches to Enbarr, the Imperial Capital. In response to the Alliance's movements, Emperor Edelgard orders her trusted retainer, Hubert, as well as the Death Knight, to the front lines to meet the Alliance army head-on. The two forces clash in the city streets.
— Introduction to The Enbarr Infiltration

Event - The Streets of Enbarr

Date: 6/29
Enbarr, The Imperial Capital

(The Alliance army stands on the entrance of the streets of Enbarr)
Claude: There it is... Enbarr. The Imperial capital and the largest city in all of Fódlan.
Judith: It's not just big. This city was designed to protect the castle where the emperor lives. It's as though the city itself is a massive stronghold.

Choice 1 Choice 2
And the citizens? What is the state of affairs in the town?

Claude: They surely noticed us approaching some time ago, and yet...
Shamir: Our scouts confirmed the citizens haven't been evacuated. They're being kept in town.
Claude: I've got to hand it to Her Imperial Majesty. Using her citizens as a shield to protect the castle takes some resolve.
Lysithea: I suspect those mages will be lurking within as well...
Shamir: Troops deployed to other areas are also returning.
Judith: If we don't conquer the city quickly, things will get complicated fast.

I hope we find Rhea...

Seteth: We can't search until we conquer the city. Let's focus on the fight for now.
Cyril: Lady Rhea, please be safe.
Claude: We've kept the Empire waiting long enough. Onward!

Battle: The Enbarr Infiltration

Before Battle

Claude: We were told Hubert would be leading the enemy forces, but the Death Knight's also with them. We'll have to take care of both of them, but we won't have time to mop up all the enemy units. We'll have to split up and take them on at the same time, or risk being overrun by their reinforcements.

Player Phase 1

Imperial Soldier: It's here! The Crest of Flames banner! There! On the other side of the canal!
Hubert: Uninvited guests, I see. Heh. Let's ensure they receive a warm welcome. Ready the artillery. Prepare to attack. Rocks, arrows, magic—rain death upon the enemy until they are silent as the grave. Reinforcements will fly in shortly. Defend the heavy weapons until they arrive.

Enemy Phase 3

(First reinforcement wave arrives)
Hubert: Our first wave of reinforcements is here. It will not be long until the next.
Seteth: Reinforcements?! That was quick... We can't hang around or they'll just keep coming. We'll have to capture the artillery. We can turn them against their reinforcements...

Enemy Phase 5

Hubert: We have reinforcements coming in from another direction. Deploy them as soon as they arrive.

If Dorothea gets near the Opera House

Dorothea: The battle is nearing the opera house. I hope everyone in the company is safe.

If Manuela gets near the Opera House

Manuela: Has it really been so long since I was in that opera house? Couldn't have imagined any of this back then.

If Seteth gets near the Church

Seteth: Ah—that church. I've such memories of that place. From a time before I was Seteth...

If Flayn gets near the Church

Flayn: That church... It looks familiar. I believe that is where my parents first met.

Boss - Death Knight

Vs Anyone:

I have no need of you...
— Death Knight Vs Anyone

Vs Byleth:

I've been waiting for you...
— Death Knight Vs Byleth

Vs Mercedes:

Mercedes: I came here to get you. Let's return together...Emile.
Death Knight: Leave... The place of your death is not here...

— Death Knight Vs Mercedes

Death Quote:

To kill, to die... To know one without the other would be maddening.
— Death Knight's Death Quote

If Hubert Falls before the Death Knight:

So much has been taken... It is not even. Time to kill...
— If Hubert Falls before the Death Knight

Boss - Hubert

Vs Anyone:

It's almost a shame to kill you. Not even death will make you consequential.
— Hubert Vs Anyone

Vs Byleth:

I should have disposed of you a long time ago. I will rectify that failure here!
— Hubert Vs Byleth

Vs Ferdinand:

Hubert: Running into you in the capital like this—I have to say, it's almost sentimental.
Ferdinand: Hubert. She must leave.
Hubert: You really think you can make her?
Ferdinand: It does not matter what I think. Those are my orders.

— Hubert Vs Ferdinand

Vs Claude:

Claude: It's over, lapdog. Your military rule is at its end.
Hubert: For every step you take along that path, our thorns will cut into your heels.
Claude: Ooh, that sounds painful. I'll have to wear thicker soles for the march.
Hubert: If your boots are too heavy, you won't be able to lift your feet. But enough prattle.

— Hubert Vs Claude

Death Quote:

We must place our Her Majesty... Her victory is everything...
— Hubert's Death Quote

If the Death Knight Falls before Hubert:

Claude: OK! Just Hubert left to deal with...
Hubert: We are taking heavy losses. We need more troops...

— If the Death Knight Falls before Hubert

After Battle

Claude: Well done, everyone! Now we can break through into Enbarr! We need to hurry up and attack the palace to block Edelgard's movements!

Event - The Archbishop's Whereabouts

(Once the battle in the streets has come to a close...)
Claude: We've made it this far... Somehow. Edelgard is probably looking down on us from somewhere in that castle.
Leonie: I wonder if she's panicking or just smiling smugly...
Claude: From this point on, she'll be giving it her all too. Expect her to be tougher than the last time we fought. This battle will settle things once and for all. We'll attack as soon as everyone is ready.
(Suddenly, Dedue reveals himself on the streets of Enbarr.)
Claude: Huh? Is that you, Dedue?!
Dedue: I heard the Alliance's army has entered the city. I've been searching for you ever since.

Choice 1 Choice 2
How long have you been in Enbarr? What are you doing in Enbarr?
Dedue: I arrived not long after the battle at Gronder Field. I am here to kill Edelgard. Dedue: I'm waiting for a chance to kill Edelgard. I have not yet been blessed with the opportunity.

Claude: Well, if you want to fight alongside us, we'd be more than happy to have you.
Dedue: We fight for different objectives. I swore to offer Edelgard's head to his Highness. But... Should I fail, I will have no choice but to entrust that mission to you.
Dedue: This is the information I have gathered during my time in hiding here. It includes details about the inside of the castle. There's more. The archbishop is being held in the palace. I do not know the exact location.
(Dedue gives Claude some notes.)
Claude: I appreciate this, but... What do you plan to do? Don't tell me you plan to go alone?
Dedue: I've done what I came here to do. Farewell.
(Dedue Leaves.)
Claude: Hey! Wait!
Claude: He's gone. He's just as hard to understand as his liege was.

(Sometime later, Claude reaches Byleth in private.)
Claude: The time has finally come, my friend. Once we win this fight, the Empire will fall...

Choice 1 Choice 2
What will become of Fódlan? What will we do about Fódlan?
Claude: What will become of it? Well, that's for us to decide, isn't it? (Support points with Claude go up.)
Claude: The subject is heavy on my mind.

Claude: Odd as it sounds, I believe the forces responsible for destroying Fódlan are also responsible for protecting the livelihood of its citizens. Everything, even the land itself, has been harmed by the chaos of war. Restoring it will be no easy feat. To do that, the first thing we need to think about is a new ruling system for all of Fódlan.

Choice 1 Choice 2
The Alliance lords could divide the territory. We could unify Fódlan as one nation.
Claude: No, I don't think that would work. The western half of the continent has little connection to the Alliance. Any attempt to force dominion on them would breed rebellion. The world would slide back into war once again. Claude: As usual, we're on the same page. I was thinking the same thing.

Claude: Even if the Alliance lords and any remaining influential nobles were to divide up dominion of all of Fódlan... They would simply pursue their own interests. Another war would be inevitable. That's why there needs to be a powerful ruler who stands above them all and unifies Fódlan as one nation.

Choice 1 Choice 2 Choice 3
You should be that ruler, Claude. We must search for a new ruler. I should be that ruler.
(Claude is amused.)
Claude: If it means I can lead Fódlan to a better future, I wouldn't mind that at all.
Claude: A new ruler, huh? I think I've got someone in mind. (Claude is surpised, yet a bit annoyed.)
Claude: My friend... Do you really mean that?

Claude: My dreams await in a future where Fódlan is no longer ravaged by war. There are things I want to see with you some day. I'll keep thinking about the best way to achieve that goal. Whatever we decide to do, we can't do it until we defeat the Empire.
Claude: Fódlan can't welcome a new dawn until we win the war. Let's prepare as best we can.
