Garon

It's time, Corrin. I'm going to sing my song without restraint. You must act while its effects are at their strongest. [...] Don't worry—and don't try to stop me. This is my destiny.
— Azura

Dawn Breaks (Japanese: 闇の去り行く暁 The Dawn Parts the Darkness) is the twenty-eighth and final chapter of the Birthright campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Garon has invoked his draconic lineage to become a dragon himself, and Corrin must end him or face death.

Plot

Main article: Dawn Breaks/Script
The below plot corresponds to the use of a male Corrin. If you refresh this page, it is possible to get an alternate reading using a female variation instead.

Corrin awakens in what appears to be his bedroom in the Northern Fortress, with Flora and Lilith by his side. Flora's refusal to use her ice magic, along with Jakob and Felicia's absence causes him to feel suspicious, when Elise and Xander appear by his side as well. The two urge him to rethink situation, and he remembers that was just fighting Garon in his throne room before this. Xander urges him not to join them in death, and they hear the voices of those who fought with him in the prior battle. Corrin bids farewell to the departed souls one by one, regains the destroyed Yato, and returns to the throne room alive. Garon attempts to shatter the Yato again, only to fail. Corrin vows to end Garon's reign, and to bring peace back to both Hoshido and Nohr. Azura begins singing her song to weaken Garon, and Corrin's final battle begins.

Ultimately, Corrin's army is victorious, and Garon is slain once and for all. Just before dying, however, Garon reverts to his human form and tells Corrin that he saw him as his "most precious pawn", and tells that he is at peace. He reveals that, since some indeterminate moment, he changed and his old self was lost forever. After Garon fades away, Azura follows suit as a result of singing her song, though not before asking Corrin to live a joyful life, and to smile one last time for her. Corrin vows to hold her promise, and hopes that she might sing for him once again someday.

Afterwards, Corrin, Hinoka, and Sakura attend Ryoma's coronation as the next king of Hoshido, where they meet Leo and Camilla once again. Ryoma pledges to maintain peace with Nohr, and to share Hoshido's abundance with them. In the middle of the festival, Corrin visits the lake where he first met Azura, where he has one final encounter with her spirit. The next day, Corrin meets once again with his Hoshidan siblings.

Strategy

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

This is the final chapter of Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, and you cannot save your progress after this chapter; thus, no changes to your army or inventory can be carried over. If you have been saving rare and valuable items like stat boosters or status staves for a rainy day, it's time to take out your umbrella.

This chapter is a top contender for being one of, if not the easiest endgames in the franchise. Garon starts off within spitting distance of your forces with only a paltry General to protect him. Rip him up and send your most powerful units like Corrin, Ryoma, and Takumi (using your cavalry and ninja as ferries if need be) to wail on Garon until he drops. If you feel like killing him even faster, he has no immunity to the Hexing Rod or other debuffs.

Congratulations! You've beaten Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright!
