Plot

Main article: A Contest of Beasts/Script

The Alliance Roundtable authorizes Claude's invasion of Adrestia. Count Bergliez, his son Caspar, and Jeralt's Mercenaries prepare to defend the Imperial border. Meanwhile, another Almyran invasion force led by Shahid and the reluctant Nader begin making for Leicester's eastern border. Claude leads the Alliance troops into battle with the Empire, and Holst takes the opportunity to face and defeat Count Bergliez in single combat. However, Claude unexpectedly calls a retreat. Byleth attacks the Alliance forces as they pull back, but is confronted by Shez. However, before Shez can defeat Byleth, Byleth's hair suddenly changes color and they begin speaking in the voice of a young girl. Shez barely escapes when Byleth manages to regain control of their body. Claude explains that the Almyrans are leading an even stronger invasion force than the one routed two years ago. As the Alliance departs, Shez floats the idea of hiring Byleth, much to Arval's shock. Meanwhile, Byleth confronts the being who possessed them, the progenitor god Sothis. Sothis explains that she can forcibly take over Byleth's body at any time she wishes. Count Bergliez elects not to pursue the retreating Alliance forces, correctly deducing that Almyra is attacking. Having come to respect Holst and the Alliance, he petitions Edelgard to end hostilities with Leicester. Edelgard accepts Count Bergliez's request and orders an envoy to be sent to Claude.
