So, we are taking children into battle, are we? I am not certain I will be able to sleep soundly after beholding something like that...
— Sothis

Familiar Scenery (Japanese: 追懐の風景 Remembered Scenery) is the second chapter of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Its mission is Red Canyon Dominance.

Seteth explains that the monthly mission is to rout a group of bandits in order to give the students practical experience in combat. After a month of studying and training, on 5/31 the Church locates the bandits in the Red Canyon Zanado and dispatches the students to wipe them out. Despite the students being disturbed by their first kills, Byleth succeeds in their mission and defeats Kostas once again, this time for good. Afterwards, Sothis expresses recognition of the Red Canyon and the feeling that something about it has changed, although she cannot recall what. If Byleth is a member of the Golden Deer, Claude wonders why Zanado is called the "Red" Canyon since none of the scenery is colored red. After Byleth's return, Rhea recounts how the goddess of Fódlan granted a divine revelation to Saint Seiros.

From now on, you will earn a stipend determined by your professor level at the beginning of each month. This month, you unlock the ability to lecture your students on Mondays. There is an option to auto-instruct, but directly managing your students' progress results in a far stronger squad. You may also recruit students from other houses if your stats are high enough. As a rule of thumb, Dorothea and Ignatz (authority) and Felix (swords) can generally be recruited rather naturally, as if you simply focus on Byleth's strengths like any other unit, you will cater to the stats that they value. If you want anyone else, you're going to need to make a long-term commitment to raise the appropriate skills and raise their support level with gifts and meals and such to sway them to your side. Don't expect to recruit everyone on your first try. Also note that Hubert and Dedue will never abandon their houses due to personal loyalty to their respective lieges and Hilda will never join the Black Eagles. True to his skirt-chasing character, Sylvain can be instantly swayed to your party if Byleth is female. He's a little on the slow side, but he gets a Relic weapon and he fits nicely into the Dark Knight class.

The 11th is a forced monastery exploration day, the 18th is a forced auxiliary battle, the 25th is a choice between a seminar or a rest, and the 31st is the monthly battle. You can also complete quests to unlock battalions, choir practice, and cooking. Battalions can be attached to any unit, can be used to trigger the Gambit command for a free uncounterable attack, and run off the authority and charm stats. Choir practice lets you build supports with two other units, gives you faith and authority points, gives students in your class faith points, and gives you professor points. Cooking is the successor to tonics from Awakening and Fates, giving you and your allies a small temporary stat boost until the end of the month. On Sundays, you may now hold seminars, do auxiliary battles, and rest. Auxiliary battles are basically skirmishes that allow you to grind, although this costs you your entire day off on Hard and Maddening difficulty. Seminars allow a teacher to lecture your students and improve their skills. If Byleth is not the one holding the seminar, they will always be in attendance. Resting gives your students +50 motivation (enough for two sessions of instruction) and restores 5 durability to the Sword of the Creator once you get it. Make good use of them all.
