Plot

Main article: Death (chapter)/Script

Queen Henriette arrives at the Order of Heroes' base in order to escort Alfonse and Sharena back to the capital of Askr for a meeting with King Gustav. As they begin to make their way home, they are waylaid by undead Emblian soldiers led by Líf, first king of Askr, and Thrasir, first emperor of Embla. Henriette explains that they have come from Hel, land of the dead. As the party approaches the castle, Hel orders her daughter Eir to infiltrate the Order so she may kill them all when the time is right. Eir challenges the heroes to battle, but is defeated and taken prisoner. Afterwards, the royal family goes to meet Gustav, leaving Eir with Anna and the Summoner. Eir offers to join the Order, raising Anna's suspicion when she refuses to elaborate why. Anna vows to kill her at the first sign of betrayal.
