Alliance General

Death Toll (Japanese: 不穏な死の連鎖 Chain of Restless Death) is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 8 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Raphael or Ignatz and neither one must have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Ignatz and Raphael rescue merchants under attack by Demonic Beasts in Leicester territory.

Plot

Main article: Death Toll/Script

During a tutoring session between Byleth and Raphael, Ignatz appears and reveals that merchants travelling from Duke Gloucester's territory to Duke Riegan's territory have been coming under attack from monsters. The two enlist Byleth and the students' aid in stopping the attacks. The class heads to the Gloucester region and encounters the monsters under the control of an Alliance general. The party defeats the general, who names Count Gloucester as his patron before retreating. Afterwards, Byleth speaks with a surviving merchant, who postulates that Count Gloucester is jealous of House Riegan's wealth and is sabotaging them to increase his own standing within Leicester. He further notes that Count Gloucester is rumored to have assassinated Duke Riegan in the incident that also killed Raphael's parents. Ignatz elaborates that his own parents were originally contracted to accompany Duke Riegan, but were too busy and suggested Raphael's parents as substitutes. Raphael refuses to let the knowledge affect his relationships with Ignatz or Lorenz.

Beginning log

Ignatz and Raphael, two sons of merchant families, set out to put an end to a series of monster attacks in Alliance territory.

Strategy

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

If you have a short fuse and want to one-turn this map, you can have a bowman pick off the Dark Mage next to the boss and charge in with a strong flier to smash right through said boss. If you want to do this the long way, put plenty of cavalry on the west side of the map - your immediate concern is lowering the southern drawbridge and clearing out the southwest enemies so that the NPC merchants can escape before they get turned into wolf chow. Once the bridge is down, you can hit the Giant Wolf with a gambit to draw his attention away from the helpless green units. Meanwhile, the east group wants to start hammering away at the group guarding the boss. Be careful here, as Archers are prowling and you can get overrun quickly if you're not smart in your advance. Once the merchants are safe, the map is fairly straightforward. Smack down the boss and win the chapter. Note that the merchants don't actually need to reach the escape point for you to get the full reward; simply keeping them alive is enough.
