Event - Students of the Golden Deer

Date: 4/24
Golden Deer Classroom

(Byleth enters the Golden Deer's Classroom, where they're greeted by their new class...)
Hilda: Wait. What?! Are you really our new homeroom professor?
Ignatz: Is that true? You aren't quite what I had pictured... Oh! Sorry! I didn't mean that the way it sounded.
Hilda: I was sure you'd be roped into joining the knights!
Claude: Don't tell me. You chose this class just to get to know me better, right? I'm flattered, really. Heh, whoops. Now that you're our professor, maybe I should choose my words more carefully.

I don't mind.

Claude: Oh? Well, then! Since we're pretty close in age and all, I suppose formalities aren't all that necessary.
Lorenz: One must truly marvel at the exceptionality of this appointment. Becoming a teacher to students almost the same age as yourself. How...unusual.
Lorenz: I've heard you are a skilled mercenary, but I cannot shake my discomfort at your new position.
Raphael: Are you really as strong as they say? Let's see your biceps! I bet I've packed on more muscle than you!
Ignatz: I doubt that. Apparently our new professor was personally recommended by Alois, one of the knights.
Claude: As far as skill goes, I saw it with my own eyes. What's more, Teach here is the child of the most renowned former captain of the Knights of Seiros.
Leonie: I heard! There's no way a child of the captain isn't worthy. It's simply not possible.
Lysithea: The captain? Who are you talking about?
Leonie: Captain Jeralt, of course! The most notable captain of the Knights of Seiros and a peerless mercenary.

Choice 1 Choice 2
He's not that well known... You're exaggerating a bit.

Leonie: Hmph! It doesn't matter what you think of him. Captain Jeralt deserves nothing but respect.
Lysithea: Hm. Well, after working as a mercenary alongside a father figure such as he, I have high hopes for our professor.
Hilda: Just because someone is special doesn't mean their children are special too, Lysithea. Assuming that a child is going to be exceptional just because of their lineage is a bad idea. Don't you agree, Marianne?
Marianne: Huh! Oh... Um, yes. I suppose so.
Leonie: Well, we can find out for ourselves in battle. I can't wait to see what tactics you've learned from the captain.
Raphael: A battle? Shouldn't we have a welcome party or something first? I'll get the meat!
Lorenz: How savage. I propose a nice conversation over tea instead. I am more than willing to procure some high-quality leaves.
Raphael: Tea? You can't get to know someone over tea. If there's no meat involved, it's not a party!
Lorenz: Your common sensibilities are grating to my noble ears. Please quiet yourself.
Claude: Sorry for the bickering, Teach. As you can see, the Golden Deer House is a rowdy bunch. We're not especially unified. You'll find nobles and commoners alike here. Those who are dedicated to their studies alongside slackers.
Claude: But, hey, that just makes your life more exciting, right? I really hope you're looking forward to the year ahead as much as I am.

Event - The Crest Scholar's Office

Date: 4/26
Professor Hanneman's Office

(At last, Byleth visits Hanneman's office...)
Hanneman: Say, while you're here...I'd like to use this device I designed to determine whether the power of a Crest resides within you. Won't hurt a bit. Promise.
(Hanneman notices Byleth is still confused.)
Hanneman: You don't know about Crests? Well, allow me to tell you everything—absolutely everything—about them. Is your calendar clear? This will take a while.
Hanneman: Crests are a fascinating topic, but before one can dive deeply into said topic, one must first understand what Crests are. They are power incarnate. They are said to have been bestowed upon humans by the goddess countless ages ago. They exist within the flesh, and are passed down through bloodlines. Those who carry Crests may excel at magic, display exceptional strength, or any number of boons. Each Crest has its own power, the nature of which is beyond mortal understanding. For now.

And you believe I have a Crest?

Hanneman: I suspect as much, yes. But we won't know for sure unless I look into the matter.
Hanneman: As I said, Crests are passed down through the blood. However, just because someone carries a Crest does not necessarily mean their descendants will inherit it as well. Only a scarce few descendants of a Crest's bloodline end up inheriting that Crest's power. Perhaps one of your ancestors bore a Crest, and you just happened to inherit it. That is how a Crest usually presents itself, after all.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Do what you can to find out. There's no need to look into it.
(Support points with Hanneman go up.)
Hanneman: Yes, of course. I'll get to the bottom of it straight away.
Hanneman: I most strongly disagree! There absolutely is a need. My Crest research is of critical importance to the church, I'll have you know.
Hanneman: Since you are now a professor here, I must insist that you aid in my research. Of course...there are those who lack the foresight to aid in my endeavors, such as that stubborn Seteth. But such individuals are the rare exception.

Hanneman: Now then, please go ahead and hold out your arm over this device here.
(As instructed, Byleth holded one of their arms on Hanneman's device...)

Hanneman: What is this?! A pattern I've never seen before... Is it possible an as-yet undiscovered Crest has been detected?
Hanneman: To think there are still Crests out there that even I am unaware of! How thrilling!
Hanneman: Ahem... Pardon my unrestrained jubilation. I have much to consider. You may leave now. I have more research to do in regard to this Crest. Yes, so very much more research. But for now, your work here is done.
(Hanneman turns away in excitement.)
Hanneman: Hmm... What could this line here be indicating? Perhaps it represents a lack of symmetry... or perhaps... What in the world? Oh, I see... It may be connected to that, but to a greater degree than usual...
Byleth: ...

Event - The Golden Deer Rise

Date: 4/30
Training Grounds

(Byleth and Claude lie in the training grounds as the mock battle draws near.)
Claude: Time for a mock battle, eh? Hmm, how should we go about this... Well, you'll be our commander, that much is for sure. Just don't screw it up and everything'll be great. Got it, Teach?

Choice 1 Choice 2
I'm not concerned. Leave it to me.

Claude: Right. I'll do whatever I can to help too. I mean, I'm kind of obligated to. For example! If I add a little something to their food to upset their stomachs...

Don't even think about it.

Claude: Yeah, yeah, wink, wink. I read you. You can't officially condone that sort of thing, right? But say, hypothetically speaking, students from the other houses started racing to the infirmary... As far as anyone knows, it could just be a harmless little stomach bug making the rounds.
(Edelgard and Dimitri enter the room.)
Edelgard: Well, well. What a fascinating conversation you two are having. May we join?
Dimitri: Claude, I can't believe you would stoop to such crooked schemes to gain the advantage. Have you no honor?
Claude: If that was really my scheme, I wouldn't be talking about it out in the open. I'm afraid you'll have to wait until our battle to see what's really in store.
Edelgard: It's irrelevant anyhow. Whatever you have planned won't save you from a crushing defeat.
Dimitri: She has a point. Still, I'm rather eager to see what sort of schemes that mind of yours conjures up.
Claude: You heard 'em, Teach. We can't let these fine folks down.

Choice 1 Choice 2
It will be a fair fight. If they insist.
Claude: Heh, of course. A fair fight, as all fights are. Good one, Teach. Play innocent now so they won't see it coming. (Support points with Claude go up.)
Claude: Are you serious, Teach? Well, if a crooked scheme is really what you're after, I've got more than a few of those up my sleeve.

(Hanneman and Manuela then enter the room.)
Manuela: Aw, how precious. Looks like you and the students have become fast friends.
Hanneman: While I am pleased that you are taking the initiative to acquaint yourself with the students, I'm afraid it's about time for the faculty strategy meeting.
Dimitri: I'm sorry, Professors. It's about time I returned to my training anyway. Claude. Edelgard. Until we meet again on the battlefield, farewell.
Edelgard: I look forward to assessing your abilities. I hope you don't disappoint.

Battle: Rivalry of the Houses

Before Battle

Claude: So this is the stage for the mock battle... The command's all yours, Teach!

Player Phase 1

Jeralt: I'm sure you already understand, but the house that defeats the other two is declared the winner. Incidentally, I'll be overseeing this mock battle. So listen well if you want to win.

Enemy Phase 1

Ferdinand: I will fight on the front lines! I can stop the enemy's advance with grace!
Hubert: Do you have Lady Edelgard's permission to—hmph. I suppose I've no choice but to provide cover.
Edelgard: Thank you Hubert. We are off to a terrible start.

Dimitri: Ashe, can you move to the front lines? I want to lure the enemy this way.
Ashe: Got it, Your Highness! Leave it to me!
Dimitri: Once you've finished preparing, make your move. Dedue, Mercedes. Keep our enemy occupied until then.
Dedue: I'm on it..
Mercedes: Oh my! We'll try our best!.

Enemy Phase (Enemy unit has been defeated)

Edelgard: Hm, you are performing as expected, Professor. We will have to face you with our full might!

If Approaching the Black Eagles First

Edelgard: We will use the forest to ambush our enemy. Everyone, I am counting on your support!

Jeralt: If they're waiting in the forest, we'd do well to take a detour.

If Edelgard is Surrounded

Edelgard: It seems we're surrounded... At a time like this, our only option is to cut a path through!

If Approaching the Blue Lions First

Edelgard: Are you planning on fighting two houses at once? I will admit, that is favorable for us.

Dimitri: This is a good opportunity for us. Let's forge ahead!

If Approaching the Blue Lions After Dealing With the Black Eagles

Dimitri: Beautiful work, Professor. But the true challenge starts now!

Edelgard: Careful, Claude. I'll win no matter what, but you're only making things harder for yourself.

All Enemies Have Been Defeated

Jeralt: All right, that's that! The winner of this mock battle is... The Black Eagle House!

Claude: Great work, everyone! Even if it's just a mock battle, the taste of victory is sugary sweet!

Event - The Mock Battle (Golden Deer)

Reception Hall

Claude: Great work, Teach! That was a brilliant win.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I'm glad we won. Everyone did well.
Claude: I've been anticipating that magic moment when your tactics and my schemes entwined, and you did not disappoint. That composed expression you always sport like a permanent mask is a perfect complement to my ruthless schemes. That's a joke, of course. Mostly. Claude: Huh. Playing ignorant as to the quality of your command and deflecting the praise to your students. You really are a model professor, Teach.

Claude: To be honest, I had a bunch of other schemes planned as well, just in case the situation called for it. But I didn't have to resort to any of them. I suppose our opponents lucked out.
(The rest of the Golden Deer House then reunites around Byleth.)
Lorenz: Well met, Professor! The breadth of your skill was on full display today. I must admit that your tactics were masterful. I shudder to think what may have transpired had it been Claude leading us into battle.
Raphael: I noticed that too! We just did what you told us, and we won! I love it!
Lysithea: As expected from a child of the former captain of the knights. Thank you for today, Professor. I have much to consider.
Hilda: I never doubted that our professor would be amazing! It was way too obvious. Don't you agree, Marianne?
Marianne: Huh? Me? Oh, um, yes. Of course. Well done, Professor.
Leonie: Captain Jeralt taught his child well. It would have been more of a surprise had our professor proved lacking.
Ignatz: Don't you think it's a bit harsh to give Jeralt all of the credit, Leonie? In any case, it's clear that we only won because of our new mentor's guidance.
Claude: A mercenary's wisdom and techniques are forged in battle. Those are the sorts of things you can only learn through experience. Right, Teach?
Claude: But more importantly, it's time to celebrate our victory! Teach here has yet to try my well renowned home cooking.
(As the scene goes black...)
Claude: I really do hope you'll join us. After all, I swiped some finely aged cheese from the dining hall for just this occasion.

Event - Report: Great Tree Moon

Audience Chamber

(Byleth reports to Rhea.)
Rhea: Your work with the students was remarkable. I can see Jeralt trained you well. I do hope you were able to use the occasion to bond with the students.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I did. Not really.
Rhea: I am so happy to hear it. Nothing would please me more than if you used this coming year to grow closer still. Rhea: Oh? Well, you have only just met them, so I suppose that should come as no surprise.

Seteth: Of course, the mock battle was mere practice. The real fight is the Battle of the Eagle and Lion, which will take place during the Wyvern Moon. You are expected to properly train your students so as not to humiliate the academy during the long-held tradition that is the coming battle.
Rhea: As for today, I have called you here to tell you of your mission for the month ahead. Your class is to dispose of some bandits causing trouble nearby.

Choice 1 Choice 2
My mission? Bandits?

Seteth: Those affiliated with Garreg Mach Monastery have a moral obligation to help those in need, regardless of social standing. Students are no exception. Each month, before the newly birthed moon departs, each house of students must complete their assigned mission. You shall work to complete the task at hand alongside your students and report back to the archbishop before the deadline. Understood?
Seteth: I will soon provide you with the necessary details for your first mission. If I told you now, I expect you would only forget, and I despise repeating myself.
Rhea: I can sense something special within your heart... I have high hopes for you.
(Rhea and Seteth then leave the room.)

Sothis: Bandits, they say...
Byleth: ?! (The voice of Sothis is heard again, which confuses Byleth as she doesn't seem to be anywhere in the room.)
Sothis: Do you recall when we first met? You shall not fall so shamelessly again, correct?
Byleth: ...
Sothis:Have you no words for me? Do not tell me that you are shocked to hear from me! You ought to know that I am always with you now. To hear my voice should not come as a shock.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Right. I don't understand...
(Sothis sighs in disappointment.)
Sothis: Whatever shall I do with you?
(Sothis proceeds to explain herself.)
Sothis: I am alive within the confines of your heart. I am unknown to all but you. But through your eyes and ears, I see and hear. Just listen to your heart, as you are doing now, and we may speak like this. That is all that I know.

Byleth: ...


Zanado, The Red Canyon

Kostas: What is this nonsense?! All I was told was to kill as many noble pipsqueaks as possible! No one said anything about the Knights of damned Seiros being on our trail!
(The thief who had previously attacked Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude is complaining to someone wearing a mask and an armor hidden by a cloak...?)
???: You have proven yourself worthless. Distracted by something so trivial. I had hoped you would achieve your goal despite the setback. But now a child of the knights' former captain is in play. How interesting.
Kostas: Hey! This isn't what I agreed to!
(The masked figure seems to be lost in thought...)
???: Hiring a mercenary as a professor. What was that woman thinking...
Kostas: Are you listening to me?! How do we finish this?!
???: You die.

Kostas: Wh— What?!
???: Underestimating the knights was an amateur mistake. One you will pay for. The road to eternal torment awaits you all.
???: Now I must locate your replacements...
(The masked person teleports away as Kostas tries to catch them up.)
Kostas: Wait! Get back here! Damn you!
