|“||Come to me, my children! Come to Rhajat, your loving mother!||”|
After the End (Japanese: 秘術の果てに To the End of the Secret Arts) is the fourteenth paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem Fates, and the one with the highest number available to the Birthright campaign. As a paralogue chapter, its events are not integral to the game's main storyline and can be done at the player's leisure. The chapter is unlocked after both clearing chapter 8 in Birthright or clearing chapter 9 in Revelation, and have Hayato married.
In this chapter, Hayato visits the Deeprealm where his daughter, Rhajat, lives, only to find it warped by the effects of dark magic arts Rhajat has been studying. Corrin and his/her army find themselves fighting seemingly never-ending Faceless spawning from acid bogs while it is up to Hayato to talk some sense into Rhajat.
- Main article: After the End/Script
We cut to a spooky Deeprealm where Subaki tells Hayato that the surroundings are not at all how he pictured where Hayato's daughter lives, and even states that he didn't know any part of the Deeprealms looked so ominous; Hayato states that the area wasn't this creepy the last time he visited Rhajat and deduces that something terrible has happened, after which both Subaki and Hayato agree to investigate.
Cutting to the house where Rhajat lives, we see her standing right outside her house summoning Faceless from acid bogs as Subaki and Hayato arrive; Hayato asks what's going on, to which Subaki notices the Faceless that appear to be surrounding the house and possibly even coming out from it. Hayato notes that the house is where Rhajat lives, and the situation at hand can only mean one thing--she actually pulled something off; Hayato then reveals that Rhajat dabbles in the dark arts, and last time he was in the area, Rhajat was amusing herself with summoning spells but couldn't get them to work. As Subaki states he can't believe Rhajat is behind what's going on, Rhajat reveals that the Nohrian monstrosities are all hers after a lot of toil; Hayato asks Subaki if that convinces him, to which Subaki states he shouldn't have been surprised--she inherited Hayato's knack for magic and it appears that Rhajat has succeeded beyond her wildest dreams, after which Hayato corrects Subaki and states Rhajat's dreams to be weird nightmmares. As Hayato calls out for Corrin's army to get into the fray and clean up this mess, Rhajat asks the Faceless to come to her as if they were her children; Hayato then notes that Rhajat has dabbled herself into a very dark place. Preparations take place at this point; the battle begins once preparations are complete.
Upon Hayato speaking with Rhajat, she notes his arrival and tells him to meet his grandchildren and asks if he's proud of her--she's mastered the art of summoning, and that the sight of Faceless that keep on coming is beautiful; Hayato states the situation is horrifying, and if she summons any more of them, Corrin's army won't be able to cut them all down. Rhajat states that she's only just begun and that the Faceless are part of their family, to which Hayato tells her that she needs to stop this act right then and there and that he knows best; Rhajat asks Hayato how he could say what he just said and states that he knows nothing about summoning, to which Hayato states that she knows what he actually meant and asks her to help clean up the mess, to which Rhajat reluctantly agrees. The player may now control Rhajat at this point.
Once the battle ends, Hayato states that they've cleaned up this mess and states that, while he's never discouraged Rhajat from dabbling in the dark arts, asks her if she has to pursue the worst possible spells, to which Rhajat states she has been working on a spell that makes a person taller and less baby-faced; Hayato asks Rhajat if what she said was true, to which Rhajat states that it's not--after which Hayato tells Rhajat that there is to be no more summoning, to which Rhajat states that her nest spell is going to be a hundredfold more effective. Hayato asks Rhajat what possesses her to do such things and declares that he's got no choice, she's becoming part of Corrin's army; Rhajat states that this place is her sanctum, to which Hayato states that if Rhajat keeps up with studying the dark arts, he has to keep an eye on her and even take charge of her magical education. Rhajat deduces that she doesn't have a say in the matter and agrees to what Hayato proposes as long as he has some interesting challenges, to which Hayato asks about the taller-person spell mentioned earlier; Subaki apologizes for intruding and reveals he also has some great plans for research, such as a spell that makes a person less afraid of the dark or a cure for crying every time for someone botches his battle moves--Rhajat asks Subaki if the spell is for himself, to which Subaki states the spell is for Hayato, who needs to be braver rather than taller, prompting Hayato to state he's braver than Subaki. Rhajat states she's about to get working on those spells right away, and states that she can see how she can really help after seeing Hayato in action; Rhajat deduces that Corrin's army also needs help and noting that this experience is going to be fun.
In the event someone other than a female Corrin is Rhajat's mother, a short time later, Rhajat is about to take one last look at the inside of her dark sanctum, stating that she won't miss it too much given that it's just a home and that the real darkness is inside her; a surviving Faceless appears and begins to attack Rhajat, only for Corrin to step in, ask the Faceless to stop and get away from Rhajat, and proceed to attack the Faceless. Corrin notes the close encounter and asks Rhajat if she's okay or if she's hurt; Rhajat asks Corrin what his/her name is, then after Corrin introduces himself/herself, Rhajat asks Corrin if he/she is the one Hayato's been talking about, to which Corrin confirms. Rhajat thanks Corrin for rescuing her that that she owes him/her her life, as nobody's been willing to sacrifice themselves for her before--and Rhajat states that she owes Corrin her entire life, every hour and day until the end; Corrin states that this isn't necessary, after which Rhajat states that Corrin has her full attention, she'll watch him/her like a hawk on a mouse forever and ever until one of them is no more and maybe then some--and that Corrin's name is branded upon her mind's eye. As Rhajat starts to leave, Corrin notes Rhajat as strange, deducing this act as her way of saying thanks and again noting Rhajat's behavior as odd; Rhajat returns and asks Corrin if he/she summoned her and that she's there for him/her if he/she needs her—her dark arts are at his/her disposal and she will be as close as his/her shadow, then states that she'll actually be his/her shadow.
In the event a female Corrin is Rhajat's mother, Rhajat tells Corrin that she's glad she's safe, apologizing for the summoning spell getting a little out of hand; Corrin tells Rhajat not to apologize, as all she cares about is that she escaped the mayhem unharmed. Rhajat notes that Corrin is not furious with her, and thus Corrin really is the best mother in the world; Rhajat then notes that she's not fond of people as they seem dull, then deduces that she might be hoarding all her love toward Corrin, after which Corrin deduces that Rhajat is a softie at heart. Rhajat asks Corrin not to let that deduction get around as people might get the wrong idea, as she doesn't squander her affection on anyone but her--not because Corrrin's her mother, but because she's special; Corrin tells Rhajat that everyone's special in one way or another, to which Rhajat notes that othere are nowhere near as special as Corrin, and that's why she doesn't mind leaving her sanctum--she can be with Corrin and watch over her like a hawk on a mouse. As Rhajat starts to leave, Corrin deduces that their conversation is over, and that Rhajat can go a bit overboard sometimes but really is good at heart, and who couldn't love anyone as truly unique as her; Rhajat returns and asks Corrin if she summoned her and that she's there for her if she needs her--she will be as close as her shadow, then states that she'll actually be her shadow.
The group visits Rhajat, Hayato's daughter. As she studied the dark arts, Rhajat has summoned a throng of Faceless, and they are out of control.

This chapter's map is 25 columns by 20 rows.
Note: The returning characters list only those recruited by the time this chapter can first be unlocked (after completing chapter 8 in Birthright or after completing chapter 9 in Revelation). Felicia is only a returning character if Corrin is male, while Jakob is only a returning character if Corrin is female. As a paralogue chapter, there is no set timeframe in which the chapter must be taken on; thus, it is possible to have recruited more characters than the above by the point the chapter is started.
No items are obtained in this chapter.

Level scaling data
This chapter's enemy units are subject to level scaling mechanisms that increase their levels as the player makes progress along the main story path. The tables below show the differences between the initial levels of the units and the levels of the units at each particular main story path chapter position. Initial unpromoted units who reach an effective level of 21 will become promoted units of level (effective level -20) unless otherwise stated.
- Additional notes: Rhajat stops visibly scaling upon hitting level 20 unpromoted at the chapter 18 position; from the chapter 19 position onward, Rhajat will have an Offspring Seal in her inventory. As all enemies in this chapter other than Rhajat herself are Faceless, subtract 20 from the Faceless' levels to reach the target level Rhajat will attain upon usage of her Offspring Seal.
- Stats are taken from a chapter 9 playthrough, the earliest possible point where this chapter may be undertaken in the Birthright campaign. Levels and stats may be higher depending on progress along the main story path.
- Every two or three turns, groups of four Faceless will spawn from the acid bogs, unless the bogs have been neutralized by their respective Dragon Veins.
- Faceless with Pavise from the bog that initially had Pavise Faceless
- Faceless with Aegis from the bog west of the Pavise bog
- Faceless with Bowbreaker from the furthest southwestern bog
- Faceless with Swordbreaker from the furthest northwestern bog
- Faceless with Lancebreaker from the bog southwest of Rhajat
- Faceless with Axebreaker from the bog north of Rhajat

Despite being faced with an infinite amount of enemies, this is one of the easier paralogues, even on Lunatic. Since the goal is to use all of the Dragon Veins, you'll need to split your army into at least two groups with at least one noble in each of them, mainly by having one of them heading west to seal the Dragon Veins near the southern point of the map as the second team works their way north. Although the Faceless can be troublesome, the worst they can do is either force you to miss an attack or simply reduce the damage that they receive. With that said, the level's main challenge is mostly defeating the Faceless faster than they can spawn and

- This chapter is one of two child paralogues in Fates where a potential non-fixed female parent has a potential special scene that appears should said character be the child's mother, in this case a female Corrin being Rhajat's mother; the other such chapter is paralogue 13 with Selena being Caeldori's mother. In this chapter's case, the non-fixed mother's scene is an alternate scene played in lieu of one involving Corrin where anyone else is Rhajat's mother.
