I’ve been a knight for 30 years, and here is one thing I learned. A person with eyes as bright and true as yours is no deceiver.
— Wallace to Lyn

A Grim Reunion (Japanese: 悲しき再会 Sad Reunion) is a chapter Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade; it is the ninth chapter in Lyn's Tale.

Plot

Main article: A Grim Reunion/Script

Having been branded as an imposter to the throne by Lundgren, Lyn turns to Eliwood to ensure that the other Lycian nobles remain neutral in Caelin’s ongoing inheritance dispute. He succeeds but is unable to assist Lyn any further. After Eliwood departs, Lyn notices that a fog is rolling in, threatening to delay their arrival to Castle Caelin. Kent informs Lyn that the best way to proceed is through the estate of his and Sain's former captain, Eagler. Before the group can begin the battle, they are approached by Wallace, who has come out of retirement on the commands of Lundgren. He was sent to capture Lyn, however, upon seeing Lyn’s eyes he chooses to ignore Lundgren’s orders and joins Lyn’s group.

After Eagler is defeated, he admits with his dying breath that he knew Lundgren has been poisoning the Marquess and urges Lyn’s group to save Caelin. Eagler’s last words leave Sain and Kent to speculate that Lundgren was threatening someone close to Eagler, forcing him to obey Lundgren’s orders. Lyn swears vengeance on Lundgren for all the suffering he has caused and continues on to Castle Caelin. Meanwhile, Lundgren, desperate to ascend to Caelin's throne before Lyn arrives, attempts to weaken his brother's hold on life by falsely reporting that Lyn has died. Hausen believes his words and begins to drown in his regrets and despair.

Beginning log

"Lyn and her friends have been branded as traitors pretenders to the throne. Lundgren has sent word to Caelin's neighbors, warning them of Lyn's approach. He calls for reinforcements to put an end to the 'imposters.' If the other realms of Lycia choose to act, Lyn will never reach Caelin alive. Lyn places her faith in Eliwood and waits."

Strategy

On Normal mode,The player is forced to promote Wallace into a General before they can make any moves. In hard mode, Wallace will still come with a Knight’s Crest, however the player will be allowed to use the item on whichever unit they choose. Since Kent and Sain join Eliwood and Hector in their stories far earlier than Wallace, it is recommended that you promote one of the cavaliers instead. This action does result in Wallace rejoining Eliwood and Hector as an unpromoted Knight in Chapter 23E/24H, though Wallace is a rather-lacking unit when he rejoins regardless of whether he is promoted or not. Make sure to promote one of the characters with the Knight Crest as it disappears at the end of Lyn’s Tale and taking on Lundgren without a promoted unit will be somewhat difficult

Visit the village to grab the torch on the first turn, preferably with a mounted unit so that they can use Canto to move back towards the group. When you use a torch, make sure Matthew is the one to use it. Thieves have the largest range of vision in the game and a torch will add four tiles to the thief’s base range of ten. The fog will show up on turn 3 so note the enemy’s current positions and the locations of the forts.

Reinforcements will begin to show up on turn 1 and will continue to do so for two more turns. All reinforcements on this map are ambush reinforcements, meaning they will move and attack your units the same turn they appear. If you place a unit near a fort, make sure they can handle the units that will come from them. When facing the Brigands, let them come off the mountain terrain so that they are easier to kill

The goal of this chapter is to seize the throne with Lyn. Keep this goal in mind as you move your units. Rescue drop Lyn closer when you have the chance or use Nils to move your boss killers closer to Eagler. Despite having nothing but 1-2 range weapons, Eagler cannot one-shot or double any of your magical units and Lucius should be able to double him if you have given him a few levels. If you decide to attack him with Erk or Lucius, make sure to rescue them out of the way so Eagler does not kill them on the following enemy phase. Alternatively, you could weaken Eagler with a lance-user or place a lance-user in his attack range. This will prompt him to switch to his Hand Axe on the enemy phase, enabling Lyn to deal a significant amount of damage or easily secure the kill with the Mani Katti on the next turn.
