Garreg Mach Monastery


Cornelia, Rodrigue, Felix*/Kingdom General*, Ingrid*/Kingdom General*, and Gwendal

How could they deceive me and close in on Arianrhod?! But it's not like I'm going to just stand by and watch... I will slaughter them all. Titanus, my lovely dolls... Seek out the enemy and destroy them! And if the chance presents itself, I wouldn't mind being rid of those unsightly Kingdom forces too!
— Cornelia

Lady of Deceit (Japanese: 偽りの乙女 Maiden of Lies) is the sixteenth chapter of Fire Emblem: Three Houses in Crimson Flower.


Main article: Lady of Deceit/Script

Edelgard and Hubert reveal to Byleth that while the general army is under the impression that they will immediately invade Fhirdiad, the Black Eagle Strike Force will launch a secret attack on Arianrhod as a preliminary step. At the end of the month, the Adrestians make for Arianrhod, much to its commander Cornelia's shock; she concludes that they are coming after her personally rather than the fort. She deploys mechanical weapons called Titanus to stop the Adrestians and even kill some of her own Faerghus troops. The Adrestians defeat Cornelia, who ominously proclaims that what has just transpired is all part of her script before expiring. With the total unification of Fódlan in reach, Edelgard announces that the Black Eagle Strike Force will lead all of Adrestia's military might to Fhirdiad.

When the group returns to Garreg Mach Monastery, they find Lord Arundel waiting for them. Arundel explains that he has concluded his business in the former Alliance territories and wanted to drop in on his niece. He further reveals that Cornelia was planning to betray the Kingdom, but that Edelgard's forces killed her before she could get the chance. Arundel chides Edelgard for her imprudence, but she remains confident. Arundel ominously warns her that the Empire may become another Arianrhod before taking his leave. Hubert arrives and reveals that pillars of light have disintegrated Arianrhod, House Rowe has been wiped out to the last, and approximately a third of the Imperial occupation force is unaccounted for, and Edelgard presumes this to be Arundel's work. Hubert explains legend has it that Ailell, the Valley of Torment, was destroyed under similar circumstances, and connects it to the current incident and figures that those who slither in the dark were responsible. The group scapegoats the Church of Seiros for the incident and makes plans to invade Fhirdiad by the end of next month.
