No way am I sitting on the throne! Let Lianna take it instead. I’m going be Aytolis’s most powerful knight!
— Rowan, to Yelena

Crumbling Peace (Japanese: 平和の崩壊 The Collapse of Peace) is the prologue chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors. This chapter serves as a continued tutorial, as well as a true introduction to the story and conflict.


Main article: Crumbling Peace/Script

Rowan and Lianna are both in the throne room, arguing that the other should become the next ruler of Aytolis as their mother, Queen Yelena, watches in concern. A guard arrives announcing the arrival of Prince Darios of Gristonne, who Rowan immediately rushes off to greet. Lianna follows after Rowan, reminding him that Darios promised to help her study, to which Rowan ignores. Later outside, Rowan and Darios spar while Lianna watches, with the match ending in a victory for the Gristonne prince. Darios then tells Lianna it's her turn, who admits that she feels outmatch but agrees as the match will make her a better fighter.

Suddenly the sky goes dark, with portals appearing across it. Monsters start coming out of the portals, attacking anyone in sight. Seeing some monsters near the throne room window, the group rushes inside to find Yelena. A guard inside the castle informs them that Yelena has already made her way to the secret passage, prompting the group to follow her. Some monsters have found their way into the passage, so Darios reminds the twins of their training as they fight their way though until they reunite with Yelena.

As they continue to escape, the passageway collapses, separating the twins from their mother. Yelena, though a small hole in the rocks, gives Rowan the Shield of Flames and tells them to head for the temple. The twins protest on leaving her behind, but she argues that there isn't time and asks Darios to look after them. As Darios drags the twins to the passage exit, Rowan and Lianna are horrified to hear their mother's scream as the passage collapses behind them.


Royal twins of Aytolis, Princess Lianna and Prince Rowan, are enjoying an afternoon with their friend Prince Darios of Gristonne when a sudden turn of events changes their lives forever.

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

This is the first chapter that will allow you to access the menu; doing so will pop up the tutorial for it. This chapter is extremely straightforward. Just charge southwest to the exit and kill the big monster lurking there. Your Strong IV almost always forces out the enemy captains' crit gauges, and a Warrior Special can handily wreck them if available.


  • The Soldier at the beginning of this chapter is erroneously called "Aytolisian Soldier A". This may be an oversight as later scenes usually have two soldiers labeled as "Soldier A" and "Soldier B".
