— Chapter 14 opening narration

Event - In the Heart of Fódlan

Date: 1/1
Entrance Hall

(As the screen is still black, multiple steps can be heard coming to Byleth's way...)
Seteth: You! So, you were alive after all.
(The darkness fades, revealing it's Seteth, Flayn and the other members of the Church.)
Flayn: Professor! It is so good to see you again. My brother and I were worried about you.
Alois: Ah, thank the goddess... I couldn't bear the thought of letting Jeralt down by not finding you.
Shamir: Guess you lucked out.
Catherine: We've been looking everywhere for you! But...I see Lady Rhea isn't with you. Damn.
Cyril: Everyone was real worried about you, Professor.
Hanneman: Gilbert has told us everything. From here on, our strength is yours as well.
Gilbert: It does my heart well to see that all of you are safe. Now that we have all gathered, let's discuss our next course of action.

Knights' Hall

(Now that everyone's reunited, the Kingdom and Church forces discuss their next course of action...)
Seteth: We have two overthrow the Empire and to rescue Rhea. I have no objection to joining forces with you. After all, our interests are aligned.
(Gilbert bows down to Seteth in gratefulness.)
Gilbert: Nothing could be more reassuring than securing the cooperation of the Knights of Seiros.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Thank you. Let's fight together.

(Byleth too is pumped boths sides have successfully joined forces.)
Seteth: The archbishop entrusted all of her affairs to you. From now on, I shall comply with your wishes.
Gilbert: We'll make Garreg Mach our base, and prepare to make our stand against the Empire. There is a fair amount of damage, but we will at least have shelter from the wind and rain.
Catherine: Surely those Imperial jerks have this place staked out, right? It's a highly strategic location.
Gilbert: While it may be a strategic location, it's too far from the front lines to be worthy of notice at the moment. This area is inconvenient as far as transport time is concerned, so it's of little importance to their war effort.
Seteth: Even so, nothing slips past the emperor. It is safe to assume she at least has this place under surveillance.
(Gilbert then directs to Byleth.)
Gilbert: Professor... What do you think about making this place our base?

Choice 1 Choice 2
I have no objections. Gathering resources would be difficult.
Gilbert: Yes, that is a valid concern...

Gilbert: Fortunately, there are still villages and hamlets nearby. And though I wouldn't call them abundant, we have war funds, as well.
(Gilbert then looks at his liege.)
Gilbert: What do you think, Your Highness?
Dimitri: Do as you please.
Annette: Hey! Don't act like this doesn't concern you! We finally reunited after all this time... We've got to work together!
Sylvain: She's right. In fact, why don't we all join forces and clean this place up a bit?
Annette: Ooh, yeah! That's a great idea! And it'll give us time to reminisce about all the good old days at the academy. I can't wait!
Dimitri: How carefree of you.
(Dimitri said in a mocking tone.)
Ashe: It may sound trivial, but... Well, I think it's a good idea...
Gilbert: I understand feeling impatient, Your Highness. But patience is key at a time like this. If we fix up our base, it will improve morale, which will be sorely needed as we—
Dimitri: Fools.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's all settle down. Let's all get along.

(Byleth attempts to done down the hostility.)
Dimitri: Stay out of this.
Gilbert: Please calm yourself, Your Highness. We are not your enemies.
Dimitri: My enemies say the same.
(Dimitri then leaves the room, leaving everyone confused.)
Felix: What happened to him? It's like he's a completely different person.
Mercedes: I feel so bad for him... Would it help if I brewed him a nice pot of tea?
Gilbert: I cannot claim to understand how he feels. However... The way he's behaving—it's as though he's being haunted by some unseen force.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I'm worried. He wasn't always like this.
Gilbert: As am I. Gilbert: Perhaps...

Exploration: The Delusional Prince

Event - Imperial Invasion

Date: 1/30

Dimitri: You're wrong.
(The scene shows Dimitri talking to rubble in the cathedral. Just then, Byleth enters the area as well.)
Byleth: ...
Dimitri: It's not like that, Glenn. I swear it. Any love I once had for my stepsister...has been tossed aside. Only hatred remains. If I could tear that woman to shreds right this very moment, I would. I don't care if she's the emperor. It's no different than killing anyone else. So I beg you...all of you... Do not worry about my resolve.
(Desperation can be felt within Dimitri's voice.)
Dimitri: Please, Father... And you too, Stepmother... Do not gaze at me with that look in your eyes... I will bring you her head soon. And when I do, you may finally rest in peace. I know it... Yes, I know it...

Choice 1 Choice 2
Snap out of it, Dimitri. What is troubling you?

(Byleth tries to reach out Dimitri, only for the latter to look back at them with a murderous glare.)
Dimitri: What do you want?

Choice 1 Choice 2
I came to check on you. Everyone is worried about you.

Dimitri: I see.
Dimitri: We should make haste and prepare to move out at once. I must kill her as soon as possible...

Choice 1 Choice 2
That would be rash. We must first prepare.
Dimitri: I don't have time to leisurely set up camp like the rest of you fools! Dimitri: We have no time to leisurely set up camp. If I must, I will go by myself.

(Just then, Gilbert enters the cathedral as well bearing news.)
Gilbert: Pardon the interruption. We must prepare a counterattack at once. The Imperial army has caught wind of our position. It would seem they were patrolling this place, after all.
Dimitri: The Imperial army, is it? Well, well. Hehehe...
(Faerghus's crown prince says with sadistic glee.)
Gilbert: Your Highness... I ask that you please refrain from reckless behavior in battle.

Outer City Wall

(The leader of the Imperial squadron near Garreg Mach discusses their situation with a younger female soldier.)
Randolph: It would seem the report that the Knights of Seiros have returned was accurate. This is going to take some effort.
Fleche: Brother... I heard a rumor that there is a vicious murderer among our enemies.
Randolph: Who knows if there's any truth to it. Though I admit we have lost some soldiers recently. Whether he's among them or not, taking on the Knights of Seiros is extremely dangerous.
Randolph: You're not ready for the front lines, Fleche. Stay in the back and support us from there. Understood?
Fleche: No! I want to stay with you! I have to—
Randolph: I need you to understand, Fleche. I will come back. I promise.
Fleche: Fine. I trust you, Brother. safe.
(After putting her sister at ease, Randolph then begins giving orders to his troops.)
Randolph: All units, prepare to attack!

Narration - Protecting Garreg Mach

At the monastery at Garreg Mach, the Kingdom army proceeds to bolster its forces, but the Empire is already one step ahead. An Imperial vanguard, led by General Randolph, has deduced the location of the Kingdom army and now advances with the aim of toppling Garreg Mach for a second time.
— Introduction to Protecting Garreg Mach

Battle: Protecting Garreg Mach

Date: 1/31
Monastery (West Wall)

Before Battle

Randolph: The Knights of Seiros are a powerful enemy, but we have more soldiers. We'll take them down all at once!

Gilbert: There are more enemies than expected. Attacking with fire would prove most useful here.

Player Phase 1

Knight of Seiros: Report! The enemy has entered the periphery of Garreg Mach!
Gilbert: If they reach the interior, we won't be able to protect the monastery. Drive them back!

If the Defended location is Captured

Gilbert: Damn! We couldn't protect the monastery. We must accept defeat.

Allied Reinforcement Appears

Gilbert: It is our duty to guide these soldiers to their destination. Stay alert. An attack may come at any time.

Allied Reinforcement Falls

Gilbert: The fire attack unit has been destroyed. Our plan has failed.

Randolph: It looks like they were planning something, but it failed!

Allied Reinforcement Reaches the Marked Tile

Gilbert: Fire attack is ready. Now to draw the enemy's attention.

Gilbert: So many units, and you still can't defeat us... The Empire's generals are not as formidable as I'd heard.
Randolph: Quiet! Don't think you'll get away with mocking me! Attack! Make sure they never speak again!
(Imperial Forces walk towards the center of the map.)
Gilbert: Now!

(The town is set ablaze.)
Imperial Soldier(1): Fire! Gyaaaaaah!
Imperial Soldier(2): It burns! Save me!
Randolph: Argh, a fire attack... The damage is too great. We can't fight anymore! All units, retreat! I'll take on our pursuers! Carry away the injured soldiers!
Gilbert: Chase them down! Leave none standing. Eliminate them before they can regroup.

Randolph Starts Moving

Randolph: A total loss... But we can't just return home like this...
Dimitri: Professor! Get down!

Boss - Randolph

Vs Anyone

For my house! For justice! I will not be defeated!
— Randolph Vs Anyone

Vs Dimitri

Randolph: A one-eyed demon... So, it's you. You're the one who's been going around killing the Imperial troops!
Dimitri: What is it to you?
Randolph: You bastard! Life is worthless to you, isn't it?!
Dimitri: Ha! You took the words from my mouth, general!

— Randolph Vs Dimitri

Vs Caspar

Caspar: You must be Randolph... My uncle.
Randolph: Caspar?! Yes, indeed... So, I see you have chosen to oppose the Empire. If so, be warned that I won't hesitate. I'll strike you down, even if we're of the same house!
Caspar: You took the words right outta my mouth! Graaagh!

— Randolph Vs Caspar

Defeat Quote:

Randolph: No... This can't end here...
Dimitri: Capture him.

— Randolph's Defeat Quote

Victory Condition has been Reached

Gilbert: A terrible battle, yet Garreg Mach still stands. Your Highness?

Event - Monsters

(After the battle, Randolph is seen barely holding on, kneeling in front of the delusional prince.)
Randolph: I have family waiting for me... Please. I can't die here...
Dimitri: A beast of your depravity, prattling on about family? How amusing.
Randolph: As though you could understand...such a thing as love... You heartless monster!
Dimitri: You are a monster too, General. You have just yet to realize it. A monster who thinks he's a man... despicable.
Dimitri: As a general, you must have killed countless souls without a shred of mercy. Do you still remember the sound of them begging, just as you're begging now? Or, now that your life is at its end, will you hold to the lie that your hands are not stained red with blood?
Randolph: This...this is war. I did what I had to for the Empire...for the people...for my family!
Dimitri: So, you are piling up corpses for the people and for your family. And I am doing the same for the salvation of the dead... After all is said and done, we are both murderers. Both stained. Both monsters.
Randolph: You're wrong!
(Randolph's voice is starting to break down...)
Dimitri: Am I? I can smell the rotting flesh upon your hands even now, General.
Randolph: Enough! That's enough!
Dimitri: I won't kill you right away, my fellow monster. Unless you object to watching your friends die.
Dimitri: If so, I will do you the service of removing your eyes first so that—

(Just then, Byleth walks into the scene and quickly swings their sword against the captive Imperial general.)
Randolph: Gaaah! Fleche... Please, forgive me...
(Byleth's blown was fatal. Randolph is no longer breathing.)

Dimitri: ...
Dimitri: What is the meaning of this?

Choice 1 Choice 2
I couldn't bear to watch. I miss the Dimitri I once knew.
Dimitri: Hah...hahahaha! A grievous error, Professor! Dimitri: The Dimitri you once knew is dead. All that remains is the repulsive, blood-stained monster you see before you.

Dimitri: If you do not approve of what I have become, then kill me. If you insist that you cannot...then I will continue to use you and your friends until the flesh falls from your bones.

Event - War Council: Guardian Moon

Meeting Room

(Some time after the recent Imperial attack, the combined Kingdom-Church army discusses their next course of action...)
Gilbert: We managed to repel the Imperial army, but we remain divided on our next course of action. I anticipate a second and third wave of attack... With our current forces, we'll have our hands full just defending.
Sylvain: It's a miracle we managed to repel the Imperial army with the few units and resources we do have.
Annette: We should probably contact Rodrigue right away to request backup.
Gilbert: Rodrigue is in a difficult position, as he has suffered invasions by the Dukedom. But there are troops who share in our cause gathering in the heart of Fraldarius territory. If we can arrange for them to join us, our forces will grow considerably.
Gilbert: Fraldarius... So, Rodrigue is still alive, is he?

Choice 1 Choice 2
We met five years ago. That name sounds familiar...
Dimitri: So you did. Dimitri: You met Rodrigue when he visited the monastery during Miklan's rebellion.

Felix: I wonder what my old man will say when he sees you now. That spectacle alone will be worth the trip.
Dimitri: Hmph.
Gilbert: I've already sent word with our fastest messenger informing Rodrigue that His Highness is alive. But we'd do well to send another in case anything happens to the first. With the current state of things, we'll be completely helpless without his support.
(Then, Gilbert directs to Dimitri.)
Gilbert: Your Highness, may I ask what your next plan of attack is? Should we dispatch our troops to the Kingdom capital or to the Imperial capital?
Dimitri: We will take the Imperial capital. There, I will kill her. We end the war and chase away the lingering regrets of the dead. Nothing could be more to the point.
Annette: Uh, that may be true, but don't forget that your people need our help right now...
Ingrid: Your Highness... I hate them too. But the citizens of Fhirdiad have long awaited your return.
Sylvain: Just give it up already. Wasting time thinking about stuff like that will only dull your blade.
Ashe: Defeating Edelgard would put an end to the war. That would benefit the Kingdom as well...
Mercedes: We still need to look for Lady Rhea, so I agree that we should get to Enbarr as fast as possible.
(Seteth then looks at the new archbishop for guidance.)
Seteth: Professor... Whatever you decide, we shall follow.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Let's take back Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital. Let's take down Enbarr, the Imperial Capital.
Dimitri: You were entrusted with leading the church. One would think the logical step is to march to Enbarr. If Lady Rhea is being held prisoner in the Empire, we don't have time to waste taking back Fhirdiad. Can you deny it?
Byleth: ...
(Byleth can't come up with a rebuttal.)
Dimitri: Yes... It is the only way.

Gilbert: Either way, we are in need of numbers. It is essential that we secure backup.
