Genesis (Japanese: 創られし命 Crafted Life) is the sidequest of the twenty-second chapter of Eliwood's tale and twenty-third of Hector's tale in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. To play this chapter, the player must have recruited Hawkeye by talking to him and gained at least 700 experience in the previous chapter.

After this chapter, which chapter is next played depends on the combined levels of Eliwood, Hector, and Lyn: if the sum of their levels is less than 50, Lloyd's version of Chapter 23E/24H will be played; if it is 50 or higher, Linus's version of Chapter 23E/24H will be played.

Plot

Main articles: Genesis/Script (Eliwood) and Genesis/Script (Hector)
Kishuna recalls his creation at the hands of Nergal.

In Hector's tale, Kishuna remembers his creation by Nergal. Nergal names Kishuna, the first morph with emotions, and compares his creation to the gods' creation of man.

After fall through sand, Eliwood's group find themselves in mysterious ruins with a mysterious atmosphere; if Chapter 18xE/19xH was played, Eliwood or Hector (in their respective tales) compare the air to what they felt on the Dread Isle. Hawkeye and Pent recognize the description as matching that of a Magic Seal. Nils then senses the presence of other morphs, and the group prepares to fight the Magic Seal.

After the group organizing themselves, a wall materializes, potentially dividing them into smaller forces; Hawkeye states that it is Kishuna's doing.

After the morphs are routed, Eliwood or Hector wonders what kind of creature Kishuna is, mentioning that he is humanoid in shape, but seemingly nothing else; in Eliwood's tale, Ninian states that a magic seal's existence is heresy. Pent accepts that there are many mysteries in the world and leaves the ruins. Before leaving, Hawkeye realizes something about Ninian, and tells her to "be strong".

As at the end of the previous chapter if this sidequest is not played, the group arrives at Athos's abode. Athos greets the lords as children of Roland – the wielder of Durandal and founder of Lycia. He introduces himself as Archsage Athos, and confirms that he fought in the Scouring and is the "living legend" Uther spoke of. Athos reveals that he knows of the lords' intention to stop Nergal, but that doing so will be a great challenge; he informs the group that they must travel to the Shrine of Seals in Bern to find the power to truly slay Nergal. Pent introduces himself as Count Reglay of Etruria and Louise as his wife, and they request to journey with the group. If the tactician is present, Athos grants them the Afa's Drops.

Athos decides to warp the group to Pherae. Eliwood envisions his homeland and his mother, and is warped to her side along with his entire company. Eleanora is overjoyed to see her son and insists that his group stay the night. Eliwood attempts to make way for Bern immediately, but Hector and Lyn convince Eliwood to rest, which he thanks them for. If the tactician is present, in Eliwood's tale, Eliwood asks them about themself, as he knows so little about them; in Hector's tale, Hector apologizes to the tactician for doubting their abilities when they first met, and acknowledges their prowess on the battlefield.

Strategy

Nils's Augury
Portrait nils fe07.png
Price: Is gba gold.pngFree
Intro: I see... shades of the battle yet to come...
Augury: A moment, please... ... ... ... I've seen this before... There's someone who can block magic. Use this to your advantage, and you may well win. This will be a vicious battle. Take only your strongest. Take your most powerful weapons as well. Don't try and match blades with the enemy, though. Pick your spot, and let them come to you one at a time. ...That's it.
This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

While the enemy units have a decent number of door keys, it is recommended that you bring a staff unit with the Unlock staff, a thief, or any door keys and chest keys you may have in order to clear this chapter as quickly as possible. You should also bring units that can knock down walls quickly like Hector with a Silver Axe, Hawkeye with a Brave Axe, or an archer/nomad with the Brave Bow. This chapter is a great opportunity to train slightly under leveled units or a recent recruit like Heath since most of the mages will not be able to fight back. Merlinus is in no danger if you deploy him, so feel free to do so. If you have been training a bow-wielding unit, this will most likely be one of their best maps. Most enemies have ranged weapons and will be forced to fight at two range if they are attacked through a wall, meaning that archers no longer suffer from a bad enemy phase. Additionally, if you do not bring a thief, you will usually have to fight units through a wall to get their door key. Having access to reliable damage with the Longbow will be useful for these moments by either killing the unit themselves and taking the key or reducing them to one-shot range for another unit.

Please note that in Hector's Tale, Kishuna will move in his confined space. Generally, he will follow the closest magic user if you brought any. This can be circumvented by rescuing said magic user and bringing them to the other side of the map which will give them a few turns to attack or use staves before Kishuna reaches them again. Kishuna's movements might allow the Sage with the Bolting tome to attack your units without leaving his room. That sage will be a constant nuisance for 5 turns so make sure to take him out early. Alternatively, you could bring a mage and move them close to that sage. Kishuna, will follow your unit and leave that sage unable to use Bolting.

In addition, in Hector hard mode, Kishuna will disappear at the beginning of the enemy phase 5 if he wasn't attacked before then. Since unlocking the door to his room first despawns Kishuna and then spawns the physical enemies that drop Silver weapons, and since it is impossible to unlock that door by turn 5, it is impossible to spawn the physical enemies in Kishuna's room in Hector hard mode.

The magic enemy units can be deceptively difficult to kill as when they are within Kishuna's magic seal range, they suffer no penalties to their AS from the weight of their tomes since they are technically not equipped.

As for killing Kishuna, do not even bother. It is nearly impossible to kill Kishuna on this map and, fortunately, you do not need to do so for any secret ending. Kishuna will disappear if he is attacked once and after he disappears all doors will open, all breakable walls will break, and magical reinforcements will spawn inside the room. In normal modes or in Eliwood hard mode, Kishuna will also disappear and call a set of physical reinforcements if you open the door to his room. Please take note that opening the door to Kishuna's room will not cause all other doors to open or all walls to break. Nevertheless, if you still want to kill Kishuna, you will need to hit him with an attack of 32 damage (Kishuna's defense not counted) and it must be a crit and Kishuna must be positioned against a wall, unless you want to try to kill him with a Longbow. The only kind of unit capable of pulling this off is an over-leveled Sniper or Nomadic Trooper with 23 strength and a Killer Bow or with 22 strength and a Brave Bow. You can also use Filla's Might to get a unit that much strength but you will still need a crit. The other option is to get a double crit with a Brave Bow which is very improbable and will likely require RNG manipulation. On Hector hard mode, you will need four more strength than the calculations listed above, which requires use of Filla's Might. In short, Kishuna is practically impossible to kill except with a unit that's nearly been maxed out with the arena, and at that point they do not need the experience. The only reason to fight Kishuna is to open all the doors and breakable walls and spawn the magical enemies in his room.

This map is also your last chance to train your lords to influence which version of the next chapter you will play. To play Linus's version of the chapter the combined levels of the lords must be at or above 50. If the lords do not meet this requirement, you will play Lloyd's version instead.
