Plot

Main article: A Chance Encounter/Script

Six months after the deaths of their comrades, Shez awakens in the woods and chances upon three nobles – Edelgard von Hresvelg, Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd, and Claude von Riegan – who are being attacked by bandits led by Kostas. Shez offers them their blades, and the four rout the thieves with the aid of relievers from the Knights of Seiros led by Alois.

In the aftermath, Shez is dumbfounded to learn that they just rescued the heirs to the three great nations of Fódlan. Alois and the nobles insist that Shez accompany them back to their camp for their reward, where Shez meets several Officer's Academy faculty and students. Afterwards, Alois strongarms Shez to come to Garreg Mach Monastery to be paid their reward/hush money.

And to the east, a league of nobles that bends no knee rules the Leicester Alliance. Though once consumed in war, these three powers now exist in relative harmony. Nestled between them is Garreg Mach Monastery, seat of the Church of Seiros—the land's widely practised faith, and a power that helps to maintain peace across the continent. Not far from the monastery, at the northern edge of the Empire, is a small village called Remire. And west of this place stretches a forest where a lone mercenary awaits...
