The party flees from the chasm with the Chalice of Beginnings, pursued by multiple phantom soldiers. They make their way through several gates, break through another group of mercenary marauders, and eventually escape back to Abyss. When they return, some Abyssians report that Aelfric has been abducted by the marauders. Yuri immediately orders the Church notified. Hapi and Linhardt discover a ransom note identifying Aelfric as a cardinal and demanding the Chalice in exchange for his life and ordering them not to summon the knights on pain of Aelfric's death. Constance realizes that in order for them to have known about their search for the Chalice, someone in Abyss must have betrayed them.
Byleth speaks to the residents of Abyss. Afterwards, Hilda notes that Aelfric's status as a cardinal is top-secret. Friendly reinforcements led by Alois arrive. After being debriefed about the situation, Alois decides to report what has transpired to Rhea.
After the player returns to Abyss after completing the battle, the Sword of the Creator automatically has 5 uses restored.
