A Clash of Forces (Japanese: 激突 Clash) is the ninth chapter of Fire Emblem Engage. In this chapter, Alear and their army fight back against Elusian forces attacking Brodia's border.

Plot

Main article: A Clash of Forces/Script

At the back lines of the BrodiaElusia border, Diamant entrusts his Emblem Ring with Alear, as he could not convince Morion to bring it with him. Diamant explains Brodia's sense of pride in their own sole strength, which Alear believes the Elusians will not follow. Soon, the two nations' forces collide, with Morion leading the charge. He comes face-to-face with Elusia's king, Hyacinth, who equips his own Emblem Ring after a brief fight. During this, he mentions that he is planning to return Sombron to full power with the blood of a royal. With the ring's power, he successfully incapacitates Morion. Alear and Diamant attempt to stop two of Hyacinth's minions from taking Morion away, but they are blocked by Ivy, whom Hyacinth leaves behind to buy himself time. Despite this, Alear's army continues to battle on amidst a snowstorm.

Alear's army succeeds in repelling the Elusian forces. Ivy urges Alear to finish her off, but they refuse. They reason that Hyacinth must have sent her out to die, as he would have given her an Emblem Ring if he intended for her to survive, and the snowstorm likely would have stalled their forces regardless. In response, Ivy reveals that Hyacinth is taking Morion to Destinea Cathedral so that the former might sacrifice the latter in a ritual that will temporarily restore Sombron's power. Ivy then tells them that Hyacinth has changed as a person even since Sombron returned, and then leaves alongside her retainers. Alear, Diamant, and the army rush ahead to stop Hyacinth's plan.

The group briefly becomes lost in the blizzard, where they reunite with Veyle, who does not know how she appeared there. Despite this, she provides them with directions to the cathedral, and thanks Alear for their help earlier. Veyle then notices Alear's Emblem Ring, which causes her to enter a brief trance which makes her drift toward them, seemingly to grab the ring. Alear snaps her out of it, and she immediately apologizes and leaves.
