Plot

Main article: In War's Grip/Script

Shortly after Aurelis is liberated, Marth receives a plea for help from a village whose children have been abducted by pirates. Marth immediately races to their rescue. Meanwhile, a foreign swordswoman named Athena prepares to battle the pirates to repay the villagers for nursing her back to health after she washed up on their shores. The village elders convince her to wait until Marth and his army arrive before undertaking such reckless actions. Sure enough, Marth arrives, and with Athena's aid, the village is liberated and the pirates slain. Afterwards, Athena decides to accompany Marth on his journey.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

Gaiden chapters in Shadow Dragon are meant to give struggling newcomers a breather, some experience, and a serviceable unit to replace their fallen comrades. This chapter sets the trend. After three chapters of suffering through Macedon's finest warriors, a band of ill-equipped, ill-trained pirate riffraff who literally run right into your waiting blades one or two at a time should be nothing to you. The enemies downgrade from H5's usual Steel weaponry to the more common Iron varieties. The only people who should really give you pause are the two Mercenaries with Armorslayers, who can make quick work of your Knights and Generals. Athena is very solid for a Myrmidon; she won't come out ahead against a properly trained Navarre, but she is certainly worth the deployment slot if you're running low on good units.
