What? But I've never even heard of Valla. You're saying that my father—and King Garon—were aware of this land?
— Ryoma

Hidden Strings (Japanese: 滅びの街 Ruined Town) is the nineteenth chapter of the Revelation campaign of Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Azura reveals more about Valla to the group, and they encounter a boy on the run from Vallite soldiers.

Plot

Main article: Hidden Strings/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.

Azura begins telling the group what she knows of Valla: that it was once friendly with Nohr and Hoshido, to which Ryoma is surprised. Azura states that the Hoshidan Throne of Truth was in fact a gift from its king, and that the kingdom was thrown into disarray when Anankos seized power. She then shows the group a statue, which Leo and Xander recognize as the same idol Garon worships. Azura says that it is a symbol of Anankos himself, who once had great wisdom and foresight. Xander is confused as to why his father would worship him and not the Dusk Dragon, to which Azura responds that Garon is likely nothing but a puppet at this point, saying that Anankos's magic is very corrupting. Leo and Xander initially express disbelief, though Leo thinks that it explains their father's insanity. Azura then tells that Anankos plans on destroying both kingdoms using his undead soldiers, so he can in turn conquer every remaining one. Xander remarks on how similar Anankos's plan was to the events in Cyrkensia.

Still unsure, Xander asks Azura why she knows all of this, with her revealing herself as a princess of Valla, and that she had learned everything from her mother after they escaped the land. Xander and Ryoma, now understanding the curse of the land, declare to unite to defeat Anankos. Suddenly, a boy is seen under attack by Vallite soldiers, prompting Corrin and the group to either escape with him or defeat the soldiers.

After saving the boy, he thanks Corrin, and introduces himself as Anthony, a former page to Anankos. He tells that the few people remaining in the kingdom are trapped and forced to work as slaves. Azura requests his help in leading them towards Anankos directly, though he doesn't believe they can possibly defeat him. Corrin promises Anthony that, if he helps them, he will not have to fear him any longer, and Anthony agrees.

Meanwhile in some kind of building, three mysterious figures express interest in Corrin's and Azura's presence in Valla.

Summary

While mourning the loss of Scarlet, the group make their way deeper into Valla. Azura shares what she knows of this hidden kingdom.
