Anthony

Yeesh... We told you we thought Anthony wasn't trustworthy. Though I suppose now is no time for "I told you so"!
— Leo

Going Forward (Japanese: 進むべき道 The Way Forward) is the twenty-first chapter of the Revelation campaign of Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Corrin's loyalty to others—and to Anthony—is turned against him/her.

Plot

Main article: Going Forward/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 variation instead.

As Corrin and the others rest from the previous encounter, Anthony comes up to speak to her. Aware of the group's distrust for him, he suggests going through the front entrance to Gyges instead of the back entrance as he previously planned. Corrin refuses this, opting to go through the back way anyways. As they reach a set of ruins that leads to the back, Anthony thanks Corrin for her trust, only to immediately summon Vallite soldiers to kill him. Anthony reveals he was ordered by Anankos to kill every last one of them, though Corrin responds that she had anticipated this, and left a message with the group to come if she didn't return. As Corrin fends off the ambush, Takumi, Leo, and the others come in to rescue her, reprimanding her as they do. As Xander and Gunter attack Anthony, Anankos transforms him into a Faceless for his failure. The group then fights through the ruins and finally kills him despite his pleas for mercy.

After the battle, Corrin apologizes to everyone for bringing them into this battle. Xander then reprimands her, saying that her tendency to trust others is her greatest weakness. Despite this, he asks her not to stop trusting people, as he would not be able to follow her anymore. Ryoma tells her to keep trusting in others and to let them handle any trouble that it may cause. Corrin thanks them all for their own loyalty to her.

Summary

The group grows distrustful of Anthony after he seemed to lead them into a trap. Nevertheless, they travel deeper into Valla, seeking the castle's back entrance.

This chapter's map is 26 columns by 26 rows.

In this chapter, red areas cause unpromoted enemies to become promoted, while blue areas cause promoted enemies to become unpromoted. These effects happen after an enemy's turn ends, meaning if an enemy starts a turn as a promoted unit, when they initiate combat on that turn, they will still be promoted for the duration of combat. These areas do not affect playable units.
