— Anna

Anna the Merchant (Japanese: 行商人アンナ Peddler Anna) is the fourth paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. As a paralogue chapter, its events are not integral to the game's main storyline and can be done at the player's leisure. In this chapter, the Shepherds come to the aid of a secret seller who wandered right into a bandits' hideout; the leader of the bandits is looking to sell her to slavers, hoping to build either a grave or a home for his twin brother (depending on choices the player has made up to this point in time).


Main article: Anna the Merchant/Script

A merchant informs Chrom that a merchant girl is being beset upon by bandits, and the Shepherds move to save her. If player has completed Paralogue 2, the bandits' leader Vincent recognizes Anna and swear to avenge Victor, much to her confusion. After the battle, if Anna was not incapacitated and the player has completed Paralogue 2, Chrom recognizes Anna, who explains that she is the identical twin sister of the Anna they previously rescued, much to Chrom's confusion. Regardless of whether Paralogue 2 was completed, Anna offers her services to the Shepherds. If Anna was defeated in battle, Frederick notes that she was injured and fled.

Note: The returning characters list only those recruited by the time this chapter is unlocked. 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. The returning characters list also does not include any characters recruitable in other paralogues, as the player may not have taken on any other available paralogue chapters yet. The list also does not include any bonus units, as they are recruitable at the player's discretion.

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

There are two major problems on this map - saving Anna and intercepting the Thief before he escapes with your Arms Scroll on turn 6. Anna herself is a solid pre-promoted Trickster who can fare decently in combat and provide valuable healing and thieving support. It is wise to prioritize training Anna's staff rank to C so she can use Physic. Deploy Chrom, Robin, Libra with a Rescue staff, Tharja, and Frederick. Frederick should start two spaces to Chrom's right while Robin should start one space above and to the left of Chrom. With a Magic Tonic and Tharja's pair-up bonuses, Libra can rescue Anna from the spot directly to Chrom's right and place Anna in a very convenient position. Chrom can then recruit her and pair up with Robin in one move. From there, send Robin charging north and killing everything in her path to get to the Thief. You will likely intercept him on turn 4. Keep Anna and Libra out of danger. With Frederick's pair-up bonuses, Anna can one-round Barbarians as long as they don't have Pavise+. Make sure to leave the Mage in the western room alive for now since he doesn't aggro until directly provoked and you can keep him around to give you some time to collect the treasure. Once the aggressive enemies are dead, have Anna loot the chests. Thanks to Frederick, she can dart in and claim the western one from outside the Mage's range, allowing Robin to finish him and claim victory. Robin should be at or pushing level 15 promoted at this point - reclass her to keep the skills coming. Dark Flier is highly recommended for Galeforce.


  • This chapter is one of four paralogue chapters in Awakening that connect only to other paralogue chapters on the world map. The others are paralogues 9, 15, and 20.
    • This chapter is the only one of those four that is neither a child paralogue nor a SpotPass paralogue.
