Claude and Byleth approach Rhea, who confirms she is The Immaculate One and the last child of the progenitor god Sothis. She explains that Sothis came to Fódlan long ago, assumed a human form, gave her blood to birth many children, and created a prosperous civilization. However, humanity engaged in senseless wars and eventually turned on Sothis, leading to humanity's near-annihilation; those who slither in the dark are likely distant descendants of the survivors of that catastrophe who retreated underground. Sothis took many more years to restore peace to Fódlan before falling into a slumber in the Holy Tomb, and her remaining children settled down at Zanado to protect the tomb. However, Nemesis appeared and slaughtered them all. Rhea, the sole survivor, took the name Seiros, founded the Adrestian Empire, slew Nemesis at the Tailtean Plains, and reclaimed the Sword of the Creator.
A soldier approaches and reveals that an unidentified military force is rampaging to the east and slaughtering innocents wherever they go; they have crossed Myrddin and broken through Alliance forces led by Holst and Count Gloucester, they march under the banner of the Crest of Flames, they are gunning straight for Garreg Mach Monastery, and the leader wields a weapon that resembles the Sword of the Creator. Rhea realizes that the enemy is a resurrected Nemesis himself; she explains that he acquired the Crest of Flames from Sothis' blood and that he and those who slither in the dark crafted the Sword of the Creator and the Heroes' Relics from the bodies of the children of the goddess. Rhea reveals that after defeating Nemesis, she retook Sothis' heart and spent the next millennium attempting to resurrect her with it, ultimately planting it in Byleth's body. Sothis' power now rests in Byleth, and they are the only one capable of defeating Nemesis.
The day before the final battle, Byleth pays a final visit to Jeralt's grave. Recalling his last words and his desire for Byleth to give their mother's ring to the one they love, Byleth can decide to propose to anyone they have an A-support with, gender permitting. Afterwards, the Alliance forces intercept Nemesis at the Caledonian Plateau. The heroes engage him in a tumultuous final battle; they emerge victorious, and finally slay him. As narrated by Jeralt, Claude tears down the old order of Fódlan and begins the process of uniting the whole world in friendship.
