All you have to do is kill the enemy before they kill you. Of course, you'll have to be prepared for the worst...
— Kempf's advice to Oltoph

Murder Hollace (Japanese: マーダーホレス) is chapter 11x of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. In order to play this chapter, you must have completed the previous chapter in 30 turns or less, triggered the trap in the previous chapter by allowing Leif to enter the central courtyard, and kept Fred alive.

Plot

Main article: Murder Hollace/Script

August, feeling that time is of the essence, instructs Leif to have their forces enter the fortress's dungeons to clear out any remaining troops and rescue any child prisoners before they are executed.

Kempf is then seen ordering a begrudging Oltoph to stay behind and fight to the death to guarantee escape. Kempf also orders Oltoph to execute any remaining prisoners as an afterthought and makes his way to the exit.

Olwen, who is locked in one of the cells with some children, witnesses their terror and fully grasps what the child hunts really are. The children are initially angry at her due to being a soldier of the Empire but she reassures them that she will help them escape. She is freed by Leif's forces and her subordinate Fred during the fighting.

After Friege's forces are cleared out of the dungeon and the children escape, Olwen overhears August and Dorias discussing the honor of house Friege in light of the fact that Ishtar's romantic relationship with Julius and open participation in the child hunts makes the entire house followers of Loptous. Olwen is confused by this information and voices her objections to this; she then agrees to accompany Leif's forces to learn the truth of what the Empire, and her brother Reinhardt, have really been doing.

Trivia

  • One of the childrens' names, Sera, bears resemblance to Serra—a playable cleric in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, and Sara—another playable cleric from this game.
  • Oddly, Olwen is mounted during preparations despite being indoors. Once the chapter proper begins, she automatically dismounts.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English
(unofficial)
Murder Hollace Refers to how Kempf ordered his soldiers to begin a murder hollace—they had to keep fighting until their deaths
Japanese マーダーホレス Literally translates to something like "Murder Hollace". A common theory is that it is intended to be "murder holes", but "holes" was transcribed into Japanese literally as ホレス horesu instead of something like ホールズ hōruzu. This is supported by Kempf's other dirty tactic being called "portcullis", another fortification in castles.
