I told them I was sorry many times over. They just wouldn't listen...

Band of Mercenaries (Japanese: 小さな傭兵団 Small Group of Mercenaries) is the third chapter in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. In this chapter, the player learns about ranged combat, flying units, weapon durability, and shops.

Main article: Band of Mercenaries/Script

Ten days after leaving the plains, Lyn's group comes upon a village that has been savaged by bandits. While examining the destruction, Lyn finds her old friend and Pegasus Knight Florina. Florina is being harassed by two bandits because she accidentally landed on one of them with her pegasus. Lyn attempts to intervene, but the bandits are too agitated to listen, and attack; saying that both Florina and her pegasus would fetch a good sum of gold.

During the battle, either on the third turn or by visiting the closest villiage, Wil, a Pheraean Archer, assists Lyn and the others in defeating the bandits. After the battle is over, Sain suggests that Florina and Wil join their travels. They both agree, and Wil coins the term Lyndis's Legion.

Beginning log

"The secrets of her past revealed in the words of two Knights of Lycia. Now to meet her grandfather, Lyn heads west, to Lycia and to her destiny. A mountain range separates the Sacae Plains from Bern. There are many bandits lurking here, the cruelest of which are then Taliver. They wreck havoc on both Sacae and Bern, and their savagery knows no bounds. On her tenth day away from the plains, Lyn witnesses their atrocities herself."
