Gift of Ganglari

Motivated, are we? Then use that fire to best me in battle, little Prince/Princess. If you would see the outside world beyond the view from your window, defeat me. Prove that all of the time I've devoted to training you has not been in vain!
— Xander

Nohr (Japanese: 暗夜の同胞 Dark Night Compatriot) is the first chapter of Fire Emblem Fates. It mainly exists for story purposes, with little gameplay required. This chapter introduces Corrin's attendants and Nohrian siblings, and again demonstrates the power of Dragon Veins.


Main article: Nohr (chapter)/Script

Corrin spends some time with their Nohrian siblings and has a fruitful training session with Xander. After training, Corrin learns that King Garon has summoned them to the Nohrian capital, which means they can finally leave the fortress in which they have been sheltered.

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

On the first turn, move Corrin towards Xander, and attack on the second turn. Xander will trigger the Dragon Vein point to reveal a Healtile; use it to recover HP. Corrin can then challenge Xander twice more to win the battle.


  • The damage dealt in each round of battle is predetermined, and is not affected by either unit's actual stats.
    • In the first round, Corrin will deal 8 damage, and Xander will deal 11 damage.
    • In the second round, Corrin will deal 8-11 damage. Xander will deal 11 damage if Corrin's HP is full, or 9 damage if it is not. As such, it is impossible to lose this chapter if the player selected HP as Corrin's boon stat.
    • In the third round, Corrin will deal 10 damage, defeating Xander.
