Fierce Winds (Japanese: 猛き風 Fierce Winds) is the eighth chapter of the Birthright campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Corrin and his/her army get into a skirmish along the Eternal Stairway against Wind Tribalists disguised as Faceless by Iago; the tribe's chieftain knows Corrin's army didn't intend to attack innocents, but has his forces challenge Corrin's army anyway in order to prove their worthiness.

Plot

Main article: Fierce Winds/Script

We witness Corrin, Azura, Sakura, and Kaze climbing the Eternal Stairway, with Corrin complaining about there appearing to be no end and Azura stating that they're about halfway up; Kaze alerts Corrin to a strange presence, after which some Faceless appear on the scene to Kaze's surprise. As Kaze starts attacking the Faceless, Corrin asks Azura to protect Sakura while he/she helps Kaze with the Faceless, to which Azura agrees; Corrin and Kaze attack the Faceless, only to stop upon seeing the Faceless having apparently transformed into human bodies, after which Azura arrives on the scene and confirms the dead as denizens of the Wind Tribe. A strange presence makes himself known to the group, to which Corrin asks him to show himself; Iago appears on the scene and chews out Corrin for killing innocents and states that anything is fair game since Corrin has sided with Hoshido. After Iago disappears, the group discusses how their route takes them through Wind Tribe territory and they'll likely have a hard time explaining these events; during the discussion, Sakura asks Corrin if he/she knows Iago, to which Corrin explains Iago to Sakura and deduces that he may have made them look like Faceless to the Wind Tribe villagers, after which Azura states Iago did them a favor by revealing himself as their enemy.

Upon arriving at the Wind Tribe's village, Kaze asks Corrin if he/she still wants to approach the village directly, to which Corrin states that sneaking around would make them look even more suspicious; two tribalists approach the group and announce their intentions to attack, after which Corrin explains Iago's deception to which the tribalists do not believe. After Sakura and Azura join in on Corrin's explanation, the tribalists decide to let their chief, Fuga, make the ultimate decision, to which Corrin states that he/she would like to speak with Fuga, after which the tribalists state that they're going to have to engage in battle. Battle preparations take place at this point.

Once preparations are complete, Hinoka asks her retainers, Azama and Setsuna, what is going on in the area, having deduced that the Wind Tribe are supposed to be neutral; Azama and Setsuna dodge the question and instead talk about how Setsuna is sinking in quicksand, resulting in Hinoka stating that she'll have to get Setsuna out of this situation. Hinoka returns to the question at hand, stating that Ryoma and Takumi can help her once they catch up to them; the battle begins at this point. Should Corrin speak with Hinoka, Corrin explains the group's plight to Hinoka, with Ryoma and Takumi having gone missing in particular focus; Corrin then explains why the battle is currently going on and what he/she plans to do when they can finally speak with Fuga. Once the group crosses into the northern half of the map, Fuga calls out toward Corrin and, upon Corrin attempting to start a conversation, states that Corrin has to fight him with honor.

Once the battle ends, Fuga states that Corrin has proven himself/herself worthy to explain his/her group's plight, first talking about the Yato and Fuga's friendship with Sumeragi with Corrin's skill with the Yato being why Fuga needed to put Corrin to the test; after Fuga explains a bit more about the Yato, he states that he knew Corrin didn't intend to attack innocents along the Eternal Stairway, after which Fuga offers a meal to Corrin's group, to which Corrin refuses stating that they have no time due to Ryoma's and Takumi's plight. Once Corrin's group leaves the scene, Corrin and Azura speak about what Fuga stated about the Yato and in particular how it can be linked to a seal; Fuga catches up with the group and offers the services of one of his diviners, Hayato, whom he wants to learn more about the world outside the Wind Tribe village.

Summary

Having defended Fort Jinya against Nohrian invaders, Corrin recruits a long-lost friend. Now, with Ryoma and Takumi in danger, the party sets out toward Izumo.
