The history of the Empire spans 1185 years. And just
like that, it ends.
But the Hresvelg legacy could live on...
When Edelgard assumed power, there were no other
She said that whoever takes the throne next should
do so by virtue of merit, not blood. And she truly
meant what she said.
At any rate... I feel that a huge hole has opened up
in my heart. Who knows if it can ever be filled?
As history proves, everything comes to an end
eventually. I knew that all along, but it still came
as a surprise.
Those who slither in the dark... It's all so fascinating
and strange. They must certainly have a long history
of their own.
And when they fall, that will come quickly too.
Don't you think?
Heh, that almost sounded like a prophecy there.
Am I spooking you yet?
He's dead... My father's dead...
I'm OK though. Really.
I was ready for it. He was a general in the Imperial
army, after all. Minister of Military Affairs...
He gave his own life so the Empire's soldiers
wouldn't have to lose theirs.
That's a fight that only he could take on. He was
such a tough guy.
I fought side by side with you this whole time.
But did I ever get any stronger? Will I ever be as
strong as my father?
With Edelgard gone, maybe Fódlan will finally find
That's all well and good, but, um...
She was also the one to put my father under house
arrest, so now he's been released, and he's taken
charge of House Varley.
I can't handle it! I can't deal with him! Please, you
have to do something!
Thank you so much!
So, the moment we defeat Edie, the nobles cozy up
to the Alliance and church...
That lot really does think only of themselves, and no
But then there's Count Bergliez. He used to be
Minister of Military Affairs...
He sacrificed his own life so that all the soldiers and
officers who fought could be given quarter...
When I heard that... I don't know...that simple act
of humanity... I couldn't help it. I burst into tears.
You know Count Bergliez is Caspar's father, right?
I can't even imagine how Caspar must feel about it.
The Empire has broken in...in smithereens. Now it is
possible for me to go back to Brigid.
But... I cannot choose that choice. The time is still
too soon for that.
We must be stopping the evil for everyone in Fódlan.
We will be fighting until the end of it!
I thought that after the Empire fell, the boar might
finally be avenged...
But something dark is certainly lurking in the
shadows—an organization behind the Empire.
We'll have to take care of them if the boar...
if Dimitri is to rest in peace.
I've only ever done what I thought was just.
I've got no regrets, but sometimes I do wonder if I've
really done the right thing.
Was all this really for the best?
Sorry—thinking about the end of the war makes me
reconsider all kinds of things.
But it's not over yet, is it? I need to steel myself for
the next battle.
This war might be over but not war in general.
Human beings thrive on conflict. We can't get
enough of it.
I don't know when, but you know someday another
war will begin.
Heh heh... That's the way it is, right?
Yeah, but the fight is still worth it.
War may always come back but so will peace.
And peace is what we fight for.
Lady Rhea still seems weak...but at least she's
I'm praying that she'll be well as soon as possible.
Goddess...I beg you... Protect Lady Rhea!
Finally that awful war is over.
Everyone lost something, and everyone had to
But maybe we can put a stop to all of this pain and
loss now. Let's hurry to Shambhala, Professor!
We have to defeat them if we ever want to see a
world without war.
Is it really prudent to bring Lady Rhea on our
It would be best not to have her doing anything
strenuous, considering how long she was confined...
There are still many in Fódlan who are seeking
Lady Rhea's salvation.
For their sake, we cannot put her in harm's way.
A mysterious power threatening the very future of
Fódlan? Certainly we cannot give it leeway.
Right now, the Empire, the Kingdom, and even the
Alliance no longer exist. There is only Fódlan—and
Fódlan must fight together as one!
Fear will serve no purpose here. The only path to
survival now is victory.
There is simply no option but victory! The
alternative is unthinkable.
Perhaps I will have the opportunity to strike the
decisive blow on the enemy commander. That
would secure my place in history for certain!
Wake up, eat, train, eat, train, eat, sleep.
We gotta prepare for the assault, but that hasn't
changed my routine!
All the training...and eating...I do is for the sake of
Fódlan! Gotta stay strong...and fed...to keep it safe!
Our next opponent is an ally of Solon.
Do you remember what Solon called us?
No. He called us beasts.
That's right. He called us beasts.
Meanwhile, he refers to himself as "the Savior."
Who exactly is he saving?
Those who slither in the dark... It seems we'll finally
discover their true form.
I get the sense that they're in league with the mages
who experimented on me as a child.
I wouldn't be surprised if Edelgard was subjected
to them too.
There's no telling what their true motives are.
But whatever their motives, what they have done is
unforgivable. They must be exterminated.
I thought the war would end with Edelgard's defeat...
But that wasn't the case.
This may be premature, but I'm feeling a
I have to consider what I'll do with myself and
where I'll go when this war is finally over...
I don't have an answer yet...
Let's make sure the next battle puts an end to this
war. That way we can all move forward!
"Shambhala" it was called, right? Scary that it's so
close to the House Goneril territories.
Who'd have thought all those creeps were living
right under my nose?
I was hoping my big brother would help us in this
But he says that I can represent House Goneril
without his help. That I have it in me.
I'm glad he recognizes that I have some ability.
Still, I wish he wasn't leaving it all to me.
These are Monica's people, aren't they? The ones
who killed Captain Jeralt.
Then this is my real opportunity for revenge. There's
no way I can back down from this one.
No, I'm OK. Actually, I'm eager to get out there and
fight. This is what I've been training for.
If we lose, it's the end for Fódlan. So we have to win,
even if it kills us.
Rhea is sleeping right now. If it is not absolutely
urgent, please do not disturb her rest.
The long confinement took its toll on her health.
Truthfully, she is in no shape to be exerting herself
at all—to say nothing of a military expedition.
To make matters worse, we are now facing a very old
enemy. One that has conspired against us since time
out of mind.
Please proceed with caution. I have a bad feeling.
I am so glad that Rhea is unharmed.
My brother continues to worry about her, however.
Of course, I am worried myself. I cannot imagine
being in that situation while in such a state...
I hope she will rest now and leave it up to you and
my brother to see things through.
A mysterious organization, slithering in the dark of
Fódlan... Like something out of a midnight tale.
It appears these fiends have infiltrated the deepest
corners of the Empire.
After the fall of Enbarr, they've remained
That said, I would keep an eye on Edelgard's uncle,
Lord Arundel. Something about him sits ill with me.
Professor! I just got word from the opera company.
I don't know if everyone survived, but it looks
like they should be able to mount a revival.
They even asked if I'd consider making a return to
the stage someday...
I suspect I may refuse though. We're at the dawn of
something new. No reason to look backwards, eh?
You've done it. You did it. You crushed the Empire,
and rescued Lady Rhea.
I'm sure the captain is proud of you right now.
As am I, of course! I'm as proud as if I'd done
Sorry. I didn't mean to overdo it.
We still have to deal with Monica's group... Those
who killed the captain.
We'll knock 'em down so hard that they can't get
We rescued Lady Rhea! I can hardly express my joy.
But now we know about a new foe, who intends to
bring her harm.
In time, we'll realize the peaceful world that Lady
Rhea has always hoped for. I'll have to keep that
in mind when I'm fighting.
We saved Rhea and the Empire has crumbled.
The Kingdom may as well be finished too.
The reasons for me to remain in Fódlan are fading.
Of course. I've come this far. May as well see it
through to the end.
That's a little hasty. I've come this far. May as well
see it through to the end.
Lady Rhea's back! Lady Rhea's back! I'm so happy!
But...things aren't gonna be like they used to be any
time soon, are they?
There's still folks out there that want us all dead, and
Lady Rhea still hasn't regained her strength yet.
Speaking of which, Professor, please don't ask too
much of her right now, OK?
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
I can hardly believe you managed to handle the
capital city like that. Everyone did sterling work!
I really thought we'd know peace after that battle.
But we're not quite there yet, huh?
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
I can still see Dedue's struggle when I close
I don't know why he was so bent on destroying
Now that we've completed our mission, I can only
pray that his soul is accepted into heaven to rest
Dedue saw to it that Edelgard was destroyed before
His expression once his mission was over...was a
I don't know where he went off to after that.
Maybe he returned home to Duscur.
So Lady Rhea was all right after all! Well done
bringing her back safely!
Finally, us true believers may breathe easy again.
Simply magnificent! Hm? You're saying the fight
isn't over yet?
We have succeeded in rescuing Lady Rhea, but
Seteth's countenance remains clouded...
When will peaceful days return to this monastery?
That time feels so distant...
We finally got Lady Rhea back from the Empire
and fulfilled our mission.
I wish we could afford for her to have a good,
long rest... But that just isn't possible.
We won against the Imperial army! I still can't
But I guess we still have some enemies left. I'm not
well informed, but I have plenty of fighting spirit!
Fighting against enemies whose true nature is
unknown is honestly really scary. Still...
If there's a force in this world that clearly means
us harm, we have no choice but to fight back.
With our own hands, we'll safeguard Fódlan's future!
I heard that Lady Rhea's back! But why hasn't she
shown herself to everyone yet?
Oh, she's convalescing? Fair enough. She was in
captivity for a long time.
I pray that she feels better soon.
I thought that taking the Empire's capital would
bring an end to this war... How naive of me.
I'll have to write to my family and tell them I'll be
gone a while longer.
Lady Rhea's return has already been proclaimed
to all the churches in all parts of Fódlan...
They are also being informed by order of Seteth
that visitations are very restricted for the time being.
It makes sense. Otherwise, pilgrims would come
from all over Fódlan and overwhelm the monastery.
Professor! My most heartfelt thanks and
congratulations on Lady Rhea's safe return!
With your magnificent achievements, maybe you'll
join the ranks of the saints one day...
I'm sure when the monastery is rebuilt, they'll make a
proper statue of you. All majestic and shiny and tall.
Oh, I just know they will!
Slithering in darkness. Unsettling to say the least.
You must be boiling to avenge your father though.
You seem pretty calm for what it is we're staring at.
Where's your fire, huh?
I've gotta say, I wish you were a little more fiery
about all this.
Though, I suppose a lot of time has passed since your
I imagine this battle will be a defining moment in
history. All or nothing. Let's do this.
I thought defeating the Empire would be the end of
it, but now we're after some mysterious shadow
organization? For crying out loud...
If that's what it takes to achieve peace, count me and
my muscles in.
This might be my last chance to literally save the
world with my strength. Not gonna let that pass
Whatever threatens Fódlan also threatens my dream.
This folly must end now!
Fear is not a consideration of mine. I do what must
be done and always have.
You go to war harboring such doubts? Pray keep
these fainthearted ruminations to yourself!
What is frightening is to have scant idea of what is
in store. Now that we know, victory shall be ours.
Sounds like there were shenanigans happening
behind the scenes in the Empire.
I think war was basically inevitable no matter what
Eddy did, with those creeps pulling the strings.
Come to think of it, I wonder if the lady who
kidnapped me was...
Never mind. Not worth mentioning.
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.
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.
I hear we conquered the Imperial capital...but the
war's still not over? Not sure how much sense that
makes, but then, making sense of things isn't my job.
Look out for yourself in the next battle. Got it?
I'll have lots more things to report by then. That's a
promise. In the meantime, I'll be cheering you on.
I've got a message for ya...from a dead man.
The Emperor was keeping the archbishop alive as
insurance against those who slither in the dark.
"When you go to Shambhala," the message says,
"take the archbishop with you."
Nothing tastes better than a drink to celebrate
the fall of the Empire!
You know... Fraldarius, one of the 10 Elites, is a
distant ancestor of mine.
Even if the Kingdom as we know it no longer exists,
there's a poetic justice in taking the Empire down.
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.
