The City Without Light

If we do nothing, Fódlan will be destroyed by a rampaging Immaculate One and these "children" of hers. There is only one way to stop this. We...we must... Damn it! We have no choice but to kill the Immaculate One...to kill Rhea!
— Seteth

Following a Dream (Japanese: 夢の跡 Trace of a Dream) is the twenty-first and final chapter of the Silver Snow route in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Plot

Main article: Following a Dream/Script

As the Resistance forces escort Rhea back to Garreg Mach Monastery to recuperate from her injuries, Seteth confirms that she is the Immaculate One from ancient Fódlan lore and that he and Flayn are both children of the goddess. As Rhea is likely to succumb to her wounds and die soon, Seteth asks Byleth to step up and take charge of post-war Fódlan.

Before making their decision, 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 S-support with, gender permitting. Afterwards, Byleth meets Seteth, Flayn, and Rhea outside Garreg Mach Monastery. Rhea reveals that Byleth is the ultimate product of Rhea's millennia-long efforts to revive her mother Sothis. She attempted to create a body and implant Sothis' Crest Stone within its heart in order to create a vessel for her resurrection. The twelfth such vessel fell in love with Jeralt and had a child, Byleth, with him, but Byleth was stillborn and their mother started dying from childbirth complications. Acting on the mother's request, Rhea transferred the Crest Stone to Byleth, saving their life. The combination of a mother born from Sothis' crest stone and a father who carried Seiros' blood finally created a suitable vessel for Sothis.

As Rhea finishes her explanation of Byleth's origins, she suddenly and unexpectedly is driven berserk by her power and transforms into the Immaculate One. Several Church soldiers report that the priests who Rhea shared her blood with are turning into White Beasts, and Seteth realizes that in her current state, Rhea will raze Fódlan to the ground; their only option is to kill her. The Resistance Army engages the berserk Rhea in a harrowing final battle, and finally defeat her. The wounded Rhea flies to the monastery cathedral, transforms back into her human form, and collapses into Byleth's arms, dying unless they A-supported her. In the aftermath, Byleth begins the reconstruction effort as the new leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan.
