|Oil and Water
||Death God Gang? What kind of childish nonsense—Where's the Death Knight?
Oil and Water is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 8 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Manuela or Hanneman and neither one must have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Manuela and Hanneman investigate rumors of the Death Knight lurking nearby.

Manuela laments to Byleth about the wound she received from the Death Knight approximately two months prior. Hanneman notices and approaches, leading the two to a bickering match. He explains that rumors have placed the Death Knight on the western edge of the Sealed Forest, and Manuela runs off to confront him. Hanneman, Byleth, and the students pursue her and find her cornered by a pack of bandits. In the process of rescuing her, they find out that these bandits are part of a group calling themselves the "Death God Gang", hence the rumors. Afterwards, Hanneman berates Manuela for her recklessness. The two make up and head off for a celebratory cup of tea.
Manuela and Hanneman have predictably opposite reactions to a disturbing rumor going around the monastery.

This paralogue only requires Hanneman or Manuela to be in Byleth's class. If one of them is not a member of their class, they will be temporarily controllable for this map with the following stats.
Hanneman, Normal Hanneman, Hard Hanneman, Maddening Manuela, Normal Manuela, Hard Manuela, Maddening
This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.
You absolutely need Flayn with Rescue for this map, or Manuela is hosed. Manuela can easily go toe-to-toe with the Archer with the Experience Gem. If you have any good fliers, sending them up to her location to support her is a very good idea. Afterwards, she should dart south. Meanwhile, the rest of the army should carve their way north so that Flayn can Rescue her. The Swordmasters are particularly dangerous, so use caution. The Sniper with the Rapier runs when you get too close, so make sure to dart in and cut him down before he runs off with a valuable weapon.
- "Oil and Water" is the title of the final story event of the Azure Moon route in Three Houses.
