Fire Emblem (Japanese: 炎の紋章 Fire Emblem) is the fifth chapter of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. As the remains of the Lycian League Army travel to Ostia, terrified villagers ask them to stop the bandits looting the nearby villages.

Plot

Main article: Fire Emblem (The Binding Blade chapter)/Script

Roy's forces reach a mountain pass that is infested by bandits under command of Dory. A local villager begs Roy to help, and even though Merlinus objects, Roy agrees to defeat the bandits. The battle then begins.

At the start of the battle, in a nearby village, Dorothy searches for Saul, who is busy womanizing. She eventually finds him and chastises him for his actions, then informs him that the Lycian Army is nearby. She also confirms that Princess Guinivere is with the army, and now knowing that, Saul wants to join Roy as quickly as possible.

Once Roy defeats Dory, Saul requests an audience with him and Princess Guinivere. Roy accepts, and in the ensuing conversation, Saul asks Guinivere about the location of the Fire Emblem. He explains that he was sent by the Elimine Church to investigate the Emblem's disappearance from the Shrine of Seals, and that he suspects Guinivere because she vanished at the same time. The princess admits she has the Emblem and that she stole it in order to stop his brother from invading, but it did not work. After Guinivere declares to Saul that she still wishes to end the war, Saul volunteers to join Roy's army, and Roy accepts him into the ranks.

Strategy

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

This time, the player is presented with two routes to the castle gate. The first and shortest path is to put Roy near the eastern gate, and villagers will open it. However, the player should try to deal with the surrounding enemies as fast as possible, so the bandits in the northern side of the map do not have enough time to reach the army. Since this can be somewhat difficult to achieve, the player should put some sturdy units on both sides of the castle and create a barrier.

The other way is to go north. If the player chooses this route, they should try to reach the forts near their party before the enemies do it. Once the first enemies have been dealt with, the player can take advantage of the forests to gain avoid points. Between turns 12 and 15, two bandits will appear from the forts in the upper left corner of the map per turn. They do not represent a real challenge.

The only village in the map gives Gant's Lance, which is a weaker version of a Silver Lance, but with more uses and lower rank. It is also recommended to buy some door keys in the vendor; this will save time in the next chapter.

The boss, Dory, can pose a danger to the player's party, due to his Killer Axe giving him a high critical rate. It is recommended to force him to equip his Hand Axe by putting a unit two spaces away. The player can then attack him with sword users without too much worry. Once the boss has been defeated, Roy can seize the castle and the chapter will end.
