Flight Toward Freedom

We haven't the time to await General Cecilia's reply... But I want to help the people. ...Even if it means opposing an Eturian noble.
— Roy to Merlinus

Amidst a Struggle (Japanese: 対立のはざまで Between conflicts) is chapter 10B of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade; the player gets this for their tenth chapter if they visited the village that gives the player a Restore staff in the previous chapter and thus went west toward Caldonia.

Plot

Main article: Amidst a Struggle/Script

Roy's army comes across a small village, where an Etrurian governor, Zinque, is trying to find and kill one of the resistance's members – Elffin. He initially sends a letter to Cecilia and does not want to start a conflict, but Zinque's attack on the village forces his hand, and the Lycian Army fights to defend the village. Before the battle begins, Melady and Galle briefly arrive to look for Princess Guinivere, but Zinque redirects them to Father Orlo in Eburacum, as he possesses no information himself.

During the battle, several additional forces appear, including Etrurian reinforcements from Lord Arcardo, contingents led by Commander Klein and Thea, bandits sent to burn down the village under Scollan, and Gonzalez, who accompanies the bandits. In the end, most of them turn over to Roy's side. Klein had been told by Arcardo that the Lycian Army is allied with the bandits, and once he learns from Roy or his sister Clarine that is not the case, he changes sides. Thea changes sides after Klein does, either through her sister Shanna talking to her or through Klein providing her with new orders. Gonzalez switches sides when talked to by Lilina and reassured that the Lycian Army will not view him as a monster or ask him to burn down villages. If Wade and Lot are deployed, they can also meet their sisters in the village – Mary and Myu respectively.

Once the battle ends, Roy meets Elffin. Elffin tests him by telling him that Etruria may have lured his army away from Lycia in order for Bern to attack it. However, Roy does not make a hot-headed decision and instead chooses to stay on the Western Isles, as the people here have no other force to rely on while Lycia has Eliwood and Cecilia. This impresses Elffin, who then suggests that Roy head south, toward Castle Eidyna on Caldonia. Workers are kept there before being sent to the mines, and they must be freed.
