Empress Avento decides to return to the front for the final battle against the Stormcloaks.
Empress Avento: ''It's about time to show Tullius, Snow Hawk and whole Tamriel, that I'm not a coward, that I'm not just sitting in my save palace and wait until the entire Empire goes down. I know, how it feels to fight eye to eye with the enemy. I will return to my soldiers and fight side by side until my last breath.''
Legate Rikke: ''My Empress, your path is my path. Blood will be shed, but it will be not ours!''
