We must begin our search for Flayn, Professor.
If she ran off of her own free will, that's her
business. But that may not be the case.
For her sake, I suggest we assume that she was
abducted and begin an investigation.
Who benefits from kidnapping her?
Let's gather all the information we can on anyone
who's been acting strangely.
Manuela ran off with Jeritza's mask?
Hmm... We'll have to speak with both of them.
But where could Manuela be?
Jeritza is likely at the training grounds or in his
quarters on the eastern side of the knights' hall.
Flayn is missing... We should split up and search
There isn't a moment to waste. We must find her
before it's too late.
When I consider how Seteth must be feeling,
my heart breaks. We must find Flayn as soon
There are no signs of her having left the monastery,
but we cannot safely rule out any possibility just yet.
I'm wasting precious time standing about trying to
think of a solution. I'll survey the monastery and
see what information I can gather.
There must be someone who has a clue as to
What? Professor Manuela ran off with Professor
I have a bad feeling about this... We must find them
both at once!
Professor Jeritza will be at the training grounds or
his quarters. I believe the latter can be found on the
eastern side of the knights' hall.
I have thoroughly surveyed the entire monastery,
and yet I have not found a single trace of evidence
that suggests Flayn was abducted.
Perhaps we must seek out personal recounts rather
than physical evidence... In any case, we must hurry
before something terrible happens.
Flayn's gone missing? Where could she be?
If it were an ordinary kidnapping, you'd think
there'd be a demand for ransom or something
by now. I don't like the sound of this...
No sign of her leaving the monastery, eh?
That is, assuming we can actually trust
Oh, but I'm sure this space has no shortage of secret
passages and hiding spots!
True. For now, there's not much we can do
aside from making a thorough search of
Let's ask around and see what we turn up. You never
know who might have seen something.
Professor Manuela ran off with Professor Jeritza's
mask? What could that possibly mean?
Well, that's suspicious! Sounds like we should try
talking to them.
Professor Jeritza is almost certainly in the training
grounds or his quarters. Where was that again?
Oh, over on the eastern side of the knights' hall.
If Flayn has been taken hostage, then we know she is
alive. At least for now.
There would be no point to abducting her if simple
murder was the objective.
That's only logical, Professor.
A beautiful, delicate maiden vanishing into thin air...
It is like something out of a book.
If it were a book, we would have no need
to worry! She would be rescued presently
by a dashing nobleman.
Do you have any idea as to where she might be?
Where she might have wandered off to?
That is what I thought! Why I am here, in fact.
But she is nowhere to be seen.
Hmm, the greenhouse. I did not think of that.
I will take a look around there later.
Flayn? No, I haven't seen her. She's been abducted.
Oh, you're looking for her. Sorry, my mind was
I just recently learned she has a Crest. Did you know
If it was a particularly rare Crest, I could imagine
Professor Hanneman would have quite an intense
interest in her.
Oh, no, I'm not accusing Professor Hanneman of
I don't know if she ran off or got kidnapped or what!
I just know that Flayn's in trouble.
That's it! I can't keep sitting around. I gotta go
Now where do I start?
Uh, Flayn's not in here!
Ugh, I guess I have to let you in to prove it, don't I?
There. See? No one's in Bernie's room but Bernie.
Maybe Flayn just wanted to be alone for a while.
Have you considered that?
Come to think of it, where is her room, anyway?
Hey, Professor, have you seen Manuela?
I saw her running off somewhere in a terrible hurry.
I wonder if it has anything to do with Flayn's
disappearance. Do you know, Professor?
Oh, yes. Didn't you know? She was the senior diva
in our Opera Company.
Flayn was childnapped. That is what you are
thinking? And the villain is inside our monastery?
Hmm. I must have admittance. One person...
has been catching my eye.
Shamir is a knight not like other knights.
Her movements are being reminders of...
no, they remind me of warriors of Brigid.
Before she was here, what was she getting up to...
I've heard the monastery is full of secret passages.
If there is no sign of Flayn's departure, it is possible
that she used one of those.
Whatever has happened, I hope she is all right.
Ah, you're looking for Flayn's kidnapper.
I can't say anything for sure, but I do have suspicions
There's something about how he's handling his blade
lately. It seems more...impulsive than usual.
It couldn't hurt to try speaking with him, at least.
At this hour, I think you'll find him sparring with
Catherine at the training grounds.
I heard something like this happened last year too.
Neither the culprit nor the missing student were ever
found last time. Some people say it was the work of
D-don't say things like that, Professor! I'm sure the
culprit is, you know, corporeal. We'll catch whoever
I thought the same. Could there be a connection?
Ow! Ingrid just about slapped the teeth out of
All I did was suggest that Flayn might've eloped...
Insensitive? I was just exploring possibilities!
I don't know. I was just suggesting things, then
suddenly I was seeing stars and Ingrid was yelling
Do you really think Flayn was kidnapped?
I have a feeling you're right. We really need to find
her, and quickly!
Do you think she ran off on her own? That doesn't
put me any more at ease.
There have been a lot of rumors swirling around
lately about a Death Knight who kidnaps people
from the nearby town...
You don't think Flayn was...you know. Do you?
Whether the rumors are true or not, I just hope our
Flayn is safe...
To think that Flayn would disappear like this...
Seteth must be worried sick.
I haven't got much to go off of, and perhaps it's out
of line for me to feel so uncomfortable...
But something has been bothering me for a while
about Gilbert. I feel as though I've met him
I also noticed him staring intently at Annette
If Flayn were taken hostage, I expect we would have
received demands from the culprit by now.
Perhaps this is not a kidnapping at all. Do you
suppose she could have simply run away?
If that is the case, it is unlikely that we will find her
anywhere in the monastery.
What could it be, then? What possible motive could
there be to abduct her?
I hope Flayn isn't going hungry. If someone really
kidnapped her, I'll never forgive them!
Now that I think about it, I saw Alois hanging out
by the pond not too long ago.
He was always getting into trouble for trying to
talk to Flayn, you know.
It's probably a crazy thought, but I'm starting
I've only ever spoken to Flayn a handful of times.
She always seemed so naive about the ways of
the world. I'm worried about her.
Yes, I'm afraid so. I just hope she comes home safe.
Wh-what makes you say that?! This is hardly the
time for teasing, you know!
Reflecting on it now, Flayn has always seemed a
rather odd person.
She appears young, yet there's something about her
that seems much older than her years suggest. And
she's quite wise, but also surprisingly naive...
Hmm, you might be right. Whatever the case, Seteth
seems to care for her more than anything.
A ghost?! Don't be absurd!
Dear Goddess, hear my prayer...
Please watch over Flayn... Please protect her...
I bet Flayn ran away. She couldn't stand being held
back by Seteth any longer.
I can empathize. I know what it's like to have an
overbearing big brother.
Where could Flayn have gone? Do you think she's
really been kidnapped?
I hear Tomas has been going around asking
But he's probably just worried like the rest of us.
Though it wasn't just Flayn. He was asking about
you and Captain Jeralt too.
That is all I can ask. Please, lend me your aid!
You ask the impossible. Oh, Flayn...
She would never have left the monastery of her own
volition. Why is there not a trace of her to be found?!
Young Flayn's disappearance is most troubling.
What? Who would suspect me? You know what?
I'll tell you who. A fool. That's who.
Flayn's Crest, the Major Crest of Cethleann, is rare,
but there are others who possess it.
Alas, Seteth would never allow that.
However, while Flayn's Major Crest of Cethleann
is rare, there are others who possess it.
Miss Flayn's whereabouts are unknown? I pray she
We do not seem to have any leads at present.
I am one of the suspects, am I?
Well, hopefully I can lay your suspicions to rest. Do
you know of my, let's call it...unique situation?
I was once a knight in service to the Faerghus
If Ingrid believes she saw me before, it was likely
in Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital.
Annette is... She is my... But no. I would appreciate
it, Professor, if you would ask no more.
Hey there, Professor. Did you want to talk?
What?! Me, abduct Flayn?! You can't really believe
I did that!
Well, this may sound silly, but...
I was too scared to even look. I couldn't bear the
thought of finding her in its depths.
Oh, that's just because of my dumb jokes. She says
that they're not very good.
But if I went around kidnapping everyone who
said that, the whole monastery would be empty!
Did you hear about Flayn? It's just one thing after
another this year, I swear.
Some of the lower-ranked knights are searching for
her in the town. If they find anything, I'll know.
What? Jeritza? Hm, come to think of it, I haven't
seen him today.
What would make you suspect him?
I see. Well, I'll let the knights know.
What brings you here? I'm taking a break.
Is this about Flayn? You find me suspicious? Hah.
True. Your point being?
I was somewhere else. Fighting. Is that a problem?
I understand that I don't fit in among the Knights
But that hardly links me to Flayn's disappearance.
I can't believe Flayn just disappeared. I don't like it
one little bit.
Oh, are you here to see someone?
Alois and Shamir and all the knights are gonna head
into town soon.
Because of Flayn's disappearance, all of the knights
are searching nonstop.
But we haven't found a single lead. Seteth's face is
getting paler by the minute. It's hard to watch.
What's that? You're looking for Manuela?
Well, I did pass by her earlier.
She was carrying something. A mask of some sort...
I'm not close to the guy, so I can't say for sure.
But come to think of it, you could be right.
Are you feeling all right? When have you ever
seen Flayn wearing a mask?
Professor, have you still not found any leads
regarding Flayn's whereabouts?
I have looked everywhere. Not even the knights
on guard have seen anything of note.
I, too, care for Flayn. She is like family to me.
Yes, let us work together. It reassures me to have you
by my side.
May the goddess protect dear Flayn until she returns
Oh my... Just one small girl who's gone astray
has caused all this.
We cannot let this stand. You must do all you
can to find out where she's gone.
Now ask around to see what information you
can find. Come now! No time to waste!
Is something the matter? I see. So, Flayn has
I will do what I can to support the search.
Hm? It seems that you are a bit suspicious of me.
Might I ask your reasons?
I was away from the monastery for a few years,
but do not forget...
I have spent more than four decades in total
working here at Garreg Mach Monastery.
Yet it was not until recently that I learned that
Seteth has a sister.
It has been two decades since I last knew Jeralt,
yet he looks nearly identical to my memory of him.
It is only natural to be curious, don't you think?
I assure you, there is nothing more to it than that.
Greetings, Professor! Today...there is quite a bit
There is a masked individual who has been going
into town every evening and not returning until
the following morning.
You see? Nothing gets past this guard! I doubt it has
anything to do with Flayn's disappearance, but...
Well, better safe than sorry, I always say.
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
Professor! I saw him! A knight wielding a
He was just like the rumors say! All covered
in jet-black armor! It was the Death Knight,
I just know it!
You don't think he has something to do with
Flayn's disappearance...do you?
I've served here at Garreg Mach in some capacity
or another for several decades now.
But after all that time, even I can't claim to know
everything about the layout.
Searching the entire interior of the monastery is a
more difficult task than you may think.
It makes you wonder who designed such a
There are fragments of records remaining from
its original construction, but none of them name
an actual architect...
This might be the first time I've ever seen Seteth look
so worn down.
If poor Flayn was lured away by anyone...
I personally think the clear suspect is that miscreant
from Duscur. Those people are deceptive by nature...
I can only imagine how worried Seteth must be,
but isn't mobilizing the entire order of knights
I was originally assigned to investigate those
reports of the Death Knight in the town near
When I think how many more victims
that dastard might claim while we're all busy
searching for Flayn...
I'm sorry... That was insensitive. We're all under
a lot of stress right now. It's important that we find
The whole monastery has been turned upside down!
I wonder if we're still going to have the Battle of the
Eagle and Lion next month.
It's a yearly tradition, but with things the way they
are right now...it's hard to imagine.
At any rate, I hope they find Flayn soon.
Looking for Flayn? Some knights came looking a bit
I did some of my own hunting but didn't find any
I even had some of my people search for her
throughout the underground...to no avail.
Think about it. The monastery is some thousand
Who knows how many hidden passageways exist...
She could be here...or anywhere, really.
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.
You're looking for someone? Huh. Try asking Yuri.
He's good with stuff like that. I'm better at hitting
things than finding them.
Honestly, I didn't even know Seteth had a sister.
If you figure out where she is and need some muscle,
just holler. We all have our strengths. For me,
my strength IS my strength.
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.
As soon as word spread of Flayn's disappearance,
the knights burst into Abyss.
We tend to be the first suspects when these things
happen, you see.
I suppose it's little surprise when there are shady
characters always coming and going...
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.
What kind of scumbag would kidnap poor Flayn?
She must feel so scared and helpless right now.
I hope she's OK...
Not really. I just know what it's like to be in
Wow. I knew you had a cynical side, but that's
I was kidnapped once, y'know... Hopefully we get
her back safely.
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.
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. 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.
Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.
Someone's gone missing up top. And guess what.
Because of that...this backup guy... Is. Still. Here.
Ugh! Can't catch a break, can I?
The investigation may be over, but I thought it best
to stay by your side a bit longer.
You hear that? Mr. Backup is here voluntarily.
I guess that's OK... He's actually not so bad.
Did you see the man with the sickle? He looked like
I saw him at the end of the road, but he stepped
around a corner and out of sight.
I think he used some kind of secret passage...
First the knights, then some monk, now a teacher?
Church setting up a punchline for a joke, or what?
Some old guy with a staff or something. Big deal.
You, genius. You're a teacher, aren't you?
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.
