Thank you for coming all the way to the Imperial
The announcement of my enthronement
Until then, can you please keep it to yourself?
There are many preparations that must be made
before the news spreads.
I believe Hubert will be occupied and away from the
monastery for much of this month.
I have returned, Professor. All that needed to be
done has been done.
I really hoped you would join me in Enbarr, but...
sometimes your path takes you far away from where
you wish to go.
Professor. Please. If he hears it from you that he
needs to rest, perhaps His Highness will listen.
He's exaggerating. He thinks my color is off and
that rest will cure all.
I have a headache, but that's just from lack of sleep.
It's not going to stop me from completing this
The professor agrees. Please rest. At least until the
task is at hand.
I won't. Even if I tried, it's not like I would get any
decent sleep. It would only be a waste of time.
I must insist—
Who do you think you are? I can take care
of myself, Dedue.
In any case, we won't let you down this month,
Professor. You can rely on us.
Hey, Teach. Is it OK for you to be out on your own
right now? Just...please be careful not to topple
over again. You scared us nearly to death.
Anyway... Doesn't Rhea want something from you?
I'm glad I'll be there to witness the ritual at the
I want to see whether or not something happens
with my own eyes.
I always knew there was something special about
you, but you've only gotten more and more
extraordinary the longer I've known you.
That transformation was just the beginning,
wasn't it? I have a feeling that things will
only grow more dire from here on out.
Edelgard and Hubert have been busier than usual.
Constantly coming and going, in and out
of Garreg Mach. Perhaps they are doing
something in the Empire?
As the legitimate heir of the Aegir family, I have not
heard anything about it.
But if it were significant, I am sure my father would
have told me.
How are you, Professor? Did Hanneman make his,
"I will do no harm" speech or promise "this won't
hurt a bit" when he asked to study you? Both?
I've a bit of research I'd like to perform. Nothing so
crass as Hanneman's poking, prodding, and drawing
of blood. No, I wish to investigate Crest power itself.
Crest power must have some kind of limit, right?
Lady Rhea says any limits must be the protection
of the goddess, but that doesn't quite answer it
for me. Hmm...
You're so strong now! I'm starting to understand why
you were appointed professor.
I thought I was stronger, but I still have such a long
way to go.
Oh, I will. I still plan on beating you some day!
You'd better not go easy on me. I need your training
to be strict if I'm gonna get any better!
So hungry... Oh, is that you, Professor?
Sorry. I'm really not feeling well this month.
Even leaving my room for dinner is just too much.
It's got nothing to do with your, um...changes.
So, um, don't open the door, please!
Recently, Professor, I feel as though you've been a
It's like you're sort of floating above the clouds,
separate from other people... And like you've got
no interest at all in ever coming back down.
How can I help?
Hey, don't worry. I thought maybe I'd ask and see
what you'd say.
In Brigid, we have legends. Stories containing people
who have a spirit living inside of them.
Those spirit people have much strength. They are
maybe able to fly in the air or race across the ocean.
Hair that shines and eyes that glow... They have
qualities that are not unlike what you are looking
Are you knowing that for certain? Maybe you will
have wings grow and soar through the sky...
Do not have doubt, Professor. The powers you have
are like the powers of the legends.
Hurry up and cage the wild boar.
Look, he's losing his grip. Even in his swordplay,
he's getting sloppy. If he keeps progressing like this,
he's going to get himself killed.
Kronya, Solon... They're dead, but we still have a
glut of enemies.
We still have to take down the Death Knight and
the Flame Emperor.
Our next battle is fast approaching. I'm ready for it.
I can't even imagine what it must be like inside the
Well, it's probably a grave, that much is for sure.
And it's likely underground. Beyond that,
I guess you're right. Holy or not, all graves are kind
of the same, aren't they?
I can't help but wonder though... Just what kind of
ritual is this?
I swear, it's like you're an entirely different person.
Heh, I guess you're right. If I look hard, I can still
tell it's you.
No, not at all! I'm just not used to it. It really suits
It's not weird at all. It's... You're somehow even more
beautiful than before.
I'm joking! I'm joking! Don't get mad.
Who— Oh! Professor! Ah, I'm sorry. That was rude.
I didn't recognize you for a second.
You've been granted this power by the goddess
herself. Truly, you must be a very special individual.
Maybe Seiros transformed before receiving her
Hmm. I haven't heard anything about that before...
Maybe that part never found its way into the legend?
It is told that Seiros had a revelation instructing her
to use her power for good, and to lead the people
of Fódlan to salvation...
I wonder what sort of revelation you might have,
Bah! Professor! Sorry, this will take some getting
Your hair and eye color are completely different!
You just don't look like yourself anymore.
Of course. You're right. I'm just being silly, as usual.
Don't scare me like that! You are still you...right?
You are, right?!
Bah! Professor! Sorry. You gave me a shock.
To be honest, I cannot keep up with all that's been
Monica was actually Kronya. Tomas was actually
Solon. Who were these people?
What about you, Professor? You are a true ally, yes?
Not the most convincing answer you could have
given. Still, I simply must take you at your word.
Pull yourself together! It is still your duty to lead us,
is it not?
You look so...different. You're still our professor
in there, right?
Did anything else change besides your hair and eyes?
Are your arms bigger? How do your abs look?
Really?! You gotta teach me how to do that!
That's disappointing. What's even the point?
So, this month's mission is to take part in a ritual at
the Holy Tomb, where you will receive a revelation
from the goddess herself.
What if she really appears? What if I finally get to
gaze upon her radiance?
I've always imagined the goddess—how beautiful she
You're going to the ritual at the Holy Tomb, right?
I hear that a revelation from the goddess is expected.
What if she shows herself? I'll be so jealous!
Your hair! And your eyes! What happened to you?!
You didn't lose something as a consequence of
gaining these powers, did you?
I see. Well, that makes me feel better. But still,
Sometimes our frail bodies don't do well with excess
power... So don't push yourself too hard.
Long ago, Saint Seiros was gifted with a divine
revelation from the goddess, as well as
Is that what happened to you too, Professor?
No way! The professor transformed before receiving
any kind of divine revelation, right?
Still, I wonder. Does the fact that you've changed
really mean you've been granted some kind
If that's the case, then what sort of revelation can be
gained from the ritual?
I'm guessing the revelation will just be a gentle
reminder to use this new power to save the
people of Fódlan. What else is there to say?
You don't actually believe we're going to hear the
voice of the goddess, do you?
When you changed, even the other professors were
taken completely by surprise.
There's a ritual at the Holy Tomb this month,
isn't there? I wonder what'll happen with that.
I'm sure you'll be all right. But don't lose sight of
who you really are, OK?
However you may change, and whatever new power
goes along with those changes—you'll still be the
same person, deep down. Remember that.
Ah. It is you.
I am sorry, but I have a lot on my mind. I would
prefer to be alone right now.
Professor, I am so happy. Your new hair and eye
color suit you well. We make quite the pair!
But...recently I sense that things are a bit strained
between Lady Rhea and my brother.
She wants to do something at the Holy Tomb.
I do not know what, but... Hm.
Whenever it has concluded, I hope they will return
to their friendship, as it has always been...
Oh my! Professor...you certainly transformed!
Your hair and eyes complement mine. I am
Are you positive? Really? Your appearance is due to
the influence of the Crest of Flames? Intriguing.
Unfortunately, I have found no record of Nemesis's
hair and eye color ever changing. However...
If that transformation was brought on, in part, by
the power of the Crest, that would be most...
Well, I suppose interesting is too small a word.
Still, it would be an absolutely exceptional discovery.
To know for certain, we must investigate further.
So, clothes off!
What? A full physical is in order, yes? We need to
know if this transformation affected you adversely.
Don't worry, it won't hurt a bit.
Oh! Yes. I...I should call Manuela. My apologies.
The Holy Tomb, huh?
I've worked here for years, and this is the first I've
heard of it.
I mean, it does make some sense. Sort of. Something
about it is still weird.
I understand now why they'd build the monastery
in the mountainous center of Fódlan. Although...
When the monastery was built, the Kingdom and
Alliance weren't even around yet.
But look how cleverly it was placed right in the
middle of the Empire, Kingdom, and Alliance.
That's weird, right?
Sometimes, I find myself thinking I should leave
Garreg Mach and return to my home...
Where I should have been all along.
Ignore me. I'm sorry...it's a silly thing. An old
man's ramblings, and nothing more.
I hear that Lady Rhea will accompany you for this
She's the pillar that supports the hearts of Fódlan's
people. Her safety is paramount. I hope there are
Oh, Professor! How long have you been standing
there? I didn't see you.
I was just sorting through Captain Jeralt's
Haven't made much progress. I keep finding things
that bring back memories.
Clearing out this room of his belongings again, it's...
It's not easy.
In our battle last month, we really cut the enemy
down to size.
But there are other enemies we have yet to
hunt down, not least the Flame Emperor.
Once we've crushed them all, we can return to our
peaceful lives at the monastery.
It will happen soon. I have a feeling something big
People who live an inordinately long time,
people whose hair changes color, and those odd
Is Fódlan some mystical land full of
You still look human. For now, at least.
You should see for yourself. I'd recommend
exploring west of the Empire.
When I first saw you, Professor, with that hair color
and that eye color? I thought you looked kind of like
Lady Rhea. Like maybe you could be related.
I like the way it looks! I wonder if I could change my
hair color too... Maybe if I tried hard enough. If I
thought real hard about it, I mean.
All I need to do is get trapped up in a strange place
and then escape, right? Just like you did.
I might not need to, but I still wanna.
You haven't a thing to worry about. You have been
gifted the power of the goddess.
Furthermore, you have overcome the death of your
father, Jeralt...and you have destroyed countless
of our wicked foes.
I am proud...so very proud of who you have become.
Once we finish the ritual at the Holy Tomb, all will
That is understandable.
Just know that your unease should disappear the
moment we conclude the ritual at the Holy Tomb.
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
Although I suppose...you are something to report!
For a moment, I thought you were someone
Lucky for you, I am quite perceptive. It took only
that single moment for me to recognize you.
The professor went out and got some new power!
Things we can't obtain here are likely obtainable by
way of the underground.
Are you unfamiliar with Garreg Mach's
underground? The place is an absolute paradise
for those who can't stay above ground.
Those Abyssian idiots. All they ever do is
We'd best purge the entire underbelly of
Those students of yours will soon graduate and
become unreachable royalty and nobility.
You should show them respect now, or you might
find yourself out of a job someday.
Heh...no. One look at your students' faces, and it's
apparent that would never happen.
Even when your kids graduate, I bet they'll still think
fondly of you. You'll always be "Professor" to them.
All things considered, this year has been
As far as the students are concerned, next month
is the last one of the school year.
Next month we will hold the graduation ceremony,
though it'll be an understandably subdued affair.
This month we ask that you carry out your duties
as best you can to ensure that our students
I recently had an errand to run, and so I had to
pass by the office...
I didn't mean to, but I overheard Lady Rhea and
Actually, it was more like Seteth was interrogating
In town earlier, there seemed to be more people
around than usual.
Is there some festival this month that I'm forgetting
Monica... No, Kronya. Kronya is dead. And so is
Solon, by your hand...
Taking vengeance with your own hand. I'm sure
Jeralt would be proud.
Things certainly have changed lately. Not that
Or perhaps the only thing that's different is how
you look. Or has your personality changed too?
Heh heh... Well, that's cute. Glad you're able to joke
around, at least. Makes me less concerned about you.
Is that so... You're not a great liar, you know.
Well, whatever the case, I still like you just the same
as I always have.
Whoever you are, it doesn't matter much to me.
But I do advise getting out of here before you get
tangled up in trouble.
Unless you've been sent here under someone's
orders. In which case, I'll happily show you a good
time. Heh heh...
Hmmm. You're that mercenary turned professor,
aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery
Yeah, you're the one I've heard so much about.
Well, I guess it's fine you're here, then.
You can call me Yuri. You'll want to remember that,
if you ever come down here again.
Hey, pal, how you holding up? The human body is
strong, but we all have our limits. Even folks who
fraternize with the goddess.
How was she, by the way? A real knockout, yeah?
I knew it! Good thing I never officially turned my
back on that beaut, huh? Next punch I throw is for
Really?! Huh. That's...a letdown.
Well, in any case, we have our work cut out for us.
No telling what they're planning next...
Haven't seen your face before. You're clearly not
from around here.
Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping
about. And yet...you look younger than me. Weird.
The name's Balthus. Formerly of the Alliance.
And who might you be? Not an Abyssian, that much
is clear at a glance.
A visitor from above, perhaps? With what purpose?
Oh...but of course. You must be the new teacher
specially appointed by Lady Rhea. That is it, yes?
Rumors have been flying underground about you.
Well, then! I am Constance von Nuvelle.
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
My word. It seems that the rumors of you receiving
the goddess's power were true.
But you're still you, obviously.
Good. It would be a shame if you changed into
someone I didn't like.
Whatever. You don't seem all that different to me.
It's clear to me, at least, that you are something
more than you were. Something special.
Yeah, yeah. I just hope this newfound specialness
doesn't spell trouble for the rest of us.
Who are you? Wait, shut up, let me guess.
You're...that new professor, right? You just started
teaching up on the surface.
Even here, people have been talking about you.
Not that the gossip got everything right.
I heard you were beautiful, but obviously that was
Hey, Professor. How's it going? Making lots of coin?
I'd love to catch up, but I'm super busy right now.
Working. For money. You understand.
Hey, Professor. You seem...different.
Lots of things seem...different around here lately.
I've noticed it. Have you?
There's unrest everywhere these days. All of my
fellow merchants seem to be endangered.
I hope things go back to normal soon. People need
more to smile about, aside from my great deals.
Abyss? You're interested in that place, are you?
Ancient sprawling remains deep below
Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.
Some folks have made their home there. Obviously
they all have their reasons and tales to tell.
But only the most enterprising merchant
would venture near it. My advice? Avoid
going there yourself.
Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.
You look different. And you're acting different.
You're just all around...different! Shaking things
up, are we?
I think that's great. Gotta keep things interesting,
right? For what it's worth...it's a good look, and you
wear it well!
Hey, you. You're from up top, right?
What business do you have here?
Wait a minute... Ah, got it. You're that new
professor, aren't you? I suppose that means I
have to let you pass.
I guess...welcome to Abyss! This town is full of
rough-and-toughs, so watch your back down here.
Look at you!
Listen, all sorts of folks wind up in this place for all
sorts of reasons. Nobody's judging.
Whatever happened to you doesn't make one bit
of difference to any of these people.
Got a shady offer from somebody well-dressed.
Noble's lapdog, probably.
There was a big sack of coin on offer, but not a lot
of real info about the job.
It seemed suspicious, so I turned it down. Now I
wonder if that was a mistake...
Ah, I see. So you are Jeralt's child. You so resemble
I did indeed. I was acquainted with your parents.
I've been wanting to speak with you for a while now.
I am nothing more than a common monk. I knew
your parents...once upon a time.
I've been gone from the monastery for some time
now because... Well, it matters not.
Might I...ask a favor of you?
Do you mind terribly picking up some fresh flowers
to place upon your mother's grave?
I am certain she'd be deeply moved to receive a gift
Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower
she once loved so dearly.
I can rest easy now.
I must be off. Take especially good care of yourself,
Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
