There they are! ...But th-those aren't looters. They're g-ghosts! No wonder we didn't see them! They came up through the spring.
— Corrin noticing mysterious raiders at the ruins

Ghostly Gold is a downloadable content xenologue chapter in Fire Emblem Fates. As a xenologue chapter, it does not officially bear a chapter number; if all xenologues are purchased and its list is viewed at the Dragon's Gate, Ghostly Gold is the first one from the top in the North American version of the game. Ghostly Gold is part of the first series of DLC releases in all regions.

This chapter was first made available on July 30, 2015 in Japan, March 3, 2016 in North America, and June 2-3 in the PAL regions. Despite its place at the top of the North American Dragon's Gate listing, it is not the first DLC chapter to be released in any region.

In this chapter, Corrin's army are tasked with guarding ruins in an Outrealm said to be loaded with treasure from invaders out to loot the place. The army ends up oversleeping, and must now deal with enemies that appear to be ghosts that are active in the early morning.

Plot

Main article: Ghostly Gold/Script
The below plot corresponds to the use of a female Corrin. If you refresh this page, it is possible to get an alternate reading using a male Corrin instead.

In a forest in the middle of the night, Lloyd tells his brother Llewelyn that he's tired--they can't keep up the duty as they lack the strength; Llewelyn states that they need to find another individual to do their work, preferably someone ripped. Llewelyn sees something and asks Lloyd if he also sees it, to which Lloyd asks if his fingernails need trimming; Llewelyn states that there's a gang of brawny folk (Corrin and their army) approaching the area, to which Lloyd asks if they know someone who can help them, with Llewelyn stating they are the ones who can help them and gets Corrin's attention. Corrin asks the twins if they are talking to her, to which Llewelyn confirms and asks them if she has bad hearing; Corrin denies the accusation and then asks them how she can help them. Lloyd states that he and Llewelyn guard the nearby ruins and reveal that someone's been raiding their temple, to which Corrin asks if this place is sacred to them, with Llewelyn confirming; Llewelyn states that the ruins might not look interesting, all that's left are stones and buried treasure, with Lloyd adding that looters sneak in and tear up the place with their axes and shovels. Corrin notes it as a terrible act, wagering that the looters are destroying the artifacts, then asks Lloyd and Llewelyn why they don't stand guard and catch the looters; Llewelyn states that Lloyd has a "derelict consternation", to which Corrin corrects to "delicate constitution", with Llewelyn stating he just said so--and states Lloyd would have nightmares for a month. Corrin states that she won't let a sacred place be defiled in such a fashion, she and her friends will help; Lloyd thanks Corrin, that she is the best, to which Corrin states she'll set up a watch. Llewelyn answers that the looters come very late at night, so they'll want to stay up until dawn, prompting a shocked reaction from Corrin; Llewelyn states that he and Lloyd are off to bed, that they'd better get into their pajamas and they'll sleep good that night.

The following morning, Corrin wakes up, noting the morning has come and stating she thought the sun would never come up; she, despite knowing her promise to keep watch, doubts her army's helpfulness--not hearing so much as a peep. Corrin asks Jakob if he saw anyone suspicious, only to find Jakob still sleeping; Corrin wakes him up, who then denies having slept in. Corrin asks him if he didn't see anything unusual the previous night, to which Jakob replies he did indeed not see a thing--with Corrin saying she believes him since he was asleep; then says she too saw nothing--at which point she hears sounds from the ruins and asks Jakob if he also heard; and asks if the someone is searching for the treasure. Corrin states she doesn't know, then asks how the invaders got inside; Jakob states they kept vigil all night and nobody could have slipped past them as they would have seen them, to which Corrin confirms some of them would have seen them--those of them who were awake! Jakob again tells Corrin he didn't sleep a wink

Corrin asks Jakob to have a look, then calls him to come over, with the latter complying...

We cut to inside the ruins, where Corrin spots the invaders--and notes that they're not looters, they're ghosts! Corrin notes that the ghosts came up through the spring, to which Jakob finds it troubling that ghosts would raid the temple and destroy the ruins; Corrin states that it's time for them to clean house, to which Jakob asks to allow him the opportunity--Corrin looks a little tired, he shall defend her and the ruins and it's a good thing he snuck in that nap. Corrin says she knew Jakob was asleep, and states they'd better hurry--the ghosts are stealing all of the treasure; he states they've got to get that gold back before the ghosts disappear. Battle preparations take place at this point.

Once the battle ends, Corrin states that now that the ghosts have been taken care of, they can finally head to bed--but first they need to do something with all of the gold; Jakob notices the sizable gold pile and states no person should be burdened with such a heavy load and decides to take a few coins. Corrin tells Jakob to put the gold back, they'll be returning every last piece to Lloyd and Llewelyn, to which Jakob tells Corrin she's right; Llewelyn thanks Corrin for scaring off the looters, with Lloyd stating they owe her one, with Corrin stating she's just glad they were able to get rid of the ghosts for them. Llewelyn asks where the gold coins came from, to which Corrin states that the ghosts were stealing them from beneath the ruins and it belongs to them; Lloyd asks Corrin to take the gold as a reward, as her army stayed up all night protecting the ruins and deserve a reward. Corrin states that they couldn't possibly accept the gold; Llewelyn states that Lloyd's right, they slept like babies and this gold's their way of saying thanks, with Lloyd stating that the gold's theirs. Corrin tells Lloyd and Llewelyn that's very generous of them and that she feels bad, but promises the gold will go to a worthy cause--they'll use it to build a better future; Llewelyn asks Corrin to promise him that, if the ghosts come back, she'll help them again, with Lloyd stating they could always use someone to help them keep watch. Corrin states that they're done with all-nighters for awhile, then states that she has to run; Lloyd asks Llewelyn if he thinks they should have told them the gold's cursed, that last time Llewelyn touched the gold, he had bad breath for a week; Llewelyn states that they'll figure it out.

Note: The returning characters list represents the minimum characterbase recruitable by the point the player can first access the Dragon's Gate. Felicia is only a returning character if Corrin is male, while Jakob is only a returning character if Corrin is female. If more chapters along the chosen main story path are cleared, or if any paralogues are cleared, the player can have access to characters not listed here by the point the chapter is first started. As bonus units are recruitable at the player's discretion, the returning characters list does not list them either.
