No reaction...Was I wrong, then? Chrom...This is some torch I'm passing you...So be it. Chrom...Lissa...And all my people...Know that I loved you.
— Emmeryn's last words

Emmeryn (Japanese: 聖王エメリナ Holy Queen Emerina) is the ninth chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. In this chapter, the Shepherds arrive at Plegia Castle with the goal of rescuing Emmeryn before the Plegians execute her. Events take an unexpected turn after the end of the main skirmish.

In addition to the next chapter in the storyline, completing this chapter will also unlock the fourth paralogue chapter.


Main article: Emmeryn (chapter)/Script

Gangrel and Aversa plot to slaughter the incoming Ylissean vanguard, Chrom, Robin, Basilio, and Flavia finalize their plan to rescue Emmeryn, and Validar gloats to Grima about how events are returning to their destined course. The day of Emmeryn's execution comes, and the Shepherds arrive and attack the Plegian forces. The Shepherds clear a path to Emmeryn so that Phila and her squad of pegasus knights can extract her, but Aversa summons a horde of Risen archers who wipe out Phila and her troops. With the Shepherds cornered, Gangrel again demands they surrender the Fire Emblem; when Chrom agrees to hand it over, Emmeryn begs the Plegian people to turn away from the path of war and voluntarily casts herself off the ledge. A distraught and enraged Chrom swears to kill Gangrel, but Basilio and Flavia force him to retreat. Marth, witnessing these events, laments that she arrived too late and Emmeryn's death sets the world back on course to a bleak future.


The rescue fails, and Chrom is forced to choose between the Fire Emblem and his sister. To spare him and the world further conflict, Emmeryn ends her life.

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

Take note of Libra in the southwest and Tharja in the southeast. Libra is a War Monk with base stats far in excess of what Lissa could hope to achieve even with an early promotion. He can actually take a bump or two if he needs to and is one of your best healers throughout the game. Meanwhile, Tharja is a strong Dark Mage who comes with the first copy of Nosferatu in the game. Nosferatu is extremely powerful in Awakening, granting Dark Mages and Sorcerers unparalleled durability.

Send Robin south to reinforce Libra. It's likely you're going to need to expend a Rescue charge in order to either pull Libra out of the line of fire (especially if the Soldier attacking him has Counter) or hasten Robin's pace to save him sooner. Luckily, he prioritizes using his Concoction if wounded. You want to recruit him by turn 3. Once that's done, send Robin back north to intercept the incoming reinforcement Wyvern Riders. They will appear on turn 5, and every enemy on the map except Campari will aggro at that point. Clearing out the Wyvern Riders gives you a save avenue of retreat in case things get dicey. Recruiting Tharja without accidentally killing her is a bit tricky; you can use Libra or a decently trained Pegasus Knight to lure her out since she doesn't have the inflated stats of a typical Lunatic+ enemy and have Robin eradicate the rest of the enemies. Once the area is clear and Tharja has joined you, waltz up to Campari and delete him.

Upon clearing this chapter, all games will have at least 100 Renown, allowing you to claim the Second Seal. In addition, Steel weaponry becomes available in the shop, and should be made standard issue.


  • During preparations, Gangrel uses his help text description as a recruitable character (describing him as the "former king of Plegia"), rather than his description from Chapter 11.
