Plot

Main article: The Struggle Commences/Script

Two years have passed since the Officer's Academy closed its doors. Edelgard has reformed Adrestia's military and social structure, Count Varley has been targeted for censure and assassination by the Central Church, and Lord Arundel and his accomplices remain at large. Edelgard decides the time has come to declare war on the Central Church due to its abuses of its position for its own benefit. She and Hubert gather the former Black Eagles and explain that she intends to invade and conquer Garreg Mach Monastery in the coming days, and wants her former classmates to act as officers in her army. With preparations complete, the Adrestian army marches for Garreg Mach.
