An Ocean View (Japanese: 海の見える場所 A Place With an Ocean View) is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 9 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Flayn, and she must not have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Seteth sets out to reclaim sacred land from the Western Church, and is accompanied by Flayn.

Plot

Main article: An Ocean View/Script

Byleth blunders into an argument between Flayn and Seteth. Flayn and Seteth explain that the Western Church has seized sacred ground honoring Saint Cichol at Rhodos Coast; if Byleth already subdued the Western Church's bishop, Seteth elaborates that these are radicals who continue to resist the new order. Flayn desperately wants to accompany Seteth on his mission to subdue them and convinces Byleth and the students to join them as well.

After driving off the heretic apostates, Seteth retrieves the Spear of Assal and Caduceus Staff from the site. He reveals that his wife is buried at the monument. Flayn states that her mother can rest in peace, and Seteth reveals that his claim that the two are siblings is a lie and that she is actually his daughter. He explains that since people are willing to hurt Flayn for her blood, the two have falsified their identities, a deception aided by Seteth's relatively youthful appearance. After recalling the happy times they spent with Seteth's wife, the group heads home.

Beginning log

Western Church extremists have taken over land sacred to Cichol, one of the Four Saints. Seteth heads out to rid the area of them, and Flayn insists on going along.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

You're on a beach for this battle, and the coastal terrain hinders most infantry and cavalry. Dismount your cavalry and bring plenty of mages and fliers, as they do not face movement penalties in the sand. Silence users such as Marianne, Manuela, and Yuri can completely shut down the bosses of the map. Send your fliers up the west side to clear out the shoals, preferably with a healer with Physic to keep them all alive. Meanwhile, everyone else should start wiping out the enemies on the beach. The Assassins are far and away the most dangerous enemies on the map; their high Speed doubles all but the swiftest of your units. However, they can only move three spaces through the sand, allowing magic users to outrun them and damage them without taking a counter. The enemy Mages deal very little damage and aren't very good at ganging up on you, though the Warlocks can do more damage. Just keep yourself healed, fight the enemies in small groups, and you'll come out on top. Note that the Priests will bolt once you take out the Bishop in the northwest, but seeing as you're standing right between them and their escape point on the south side of the map it only means they'll run right into your waiting blades. Otherwise, most enemies remain immobile until their group is provoked by a unit attacking them or entering their attack range, so you can take your time with this map without any repercussions.
