Altea Castle Courtyard

New units

Abel, Frey



Prologue II is the second chapter in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon on Normal difficulty.


Main article: Prologue II/Script

Marth arrives in the castle courtyard and is greeted by two Altean cavalrymen, Frey and Abel. They explain that Elice assigned them as his bodyguards, while the tactician Malledus remains with her. The three are to regroup with Jagen at the main gates, but before they can proceed, more Gra soldiers attack.

After dispatching the enemy soldiers, Jagen arrives to escort Marth away from the castle. Before they leave, another Altean cavalier named Cain arrives badly wounded, despite the fact that he is supposed to be in Gra. Cain reveals he has been sent to deliver a message, but before he can do so, he begins to succumb to his wounds. Jagen insists on waiting to treat him until after they have all escaped.

Meanwhile, inside the castle, Malledus prepares to escape with Elice, but she refuses to come with him. She explains that she cannot abandon Altea's people in their hour of need, and that Malledus must ensure Marth's survival so that he can someday wield Falchion and battle Medeus.

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

You receive two Cavaliers at the beginning of this chapter. Abel's Javelin allows you to attack from range, limiting enemy counterattacks and ensuring your own, though you may also wish to save uses of the Javelin. Like the last level, this is fairly straightforward, though slight risk is now involved as opposed to being unlosable. If you have already chosen one of these two Cavaliers to be the decoy in Prologue IV, you should trade their inventory away now and pull them out of harm's way to keep them from stealing valuable EXP from your other units. If not, you may wish to level up both of them to keep a balanced team.
