Micaiah

This Maiden of Dawn is supposed to be the savior of Daein, whose miraculous powers freed their people from tyranny. In other words, her followers are fanatics who see her as a goddess. She will make a formidable enemy.
— Soren

Rivals Collide (Japanese: 両雄、相打つ Two Great Rivals Collide) is the seventh chapter of part 3 of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. In this chapter, Ike and the Greil Mercenaries square off against Micaiah and the Daein Army for the first time.

Plot

Main article: Rivals Collide/Script
See also: Rivals Collide/Conversations

To the east of the Ribahn River, Ike and Tibarn receive word of Daein working together with Begnion. Ranulf, among the others, finds this suspicious, as Daein was just recently fighting to free themselves from Begnion's oppression. Skrimir arrives, having healed from his wounds, and the group begins planning their next course of action. Soren states that they can use no other part of the Ribahn to cross, as it would lose them time and allow the Central Army to catch up. He also informs them of Daein's leader, Micaiah, and the supposed miracles she has performed, to their skepticism. He declares Micaiah's followers to be fanatics, making them dangerous opponents. As a head-on assault would result in one side being completely destroyed, Titania suggests using a decoy force; Soren sees merit to the idea, as Daein would not have knowledge of the previous decoy used against Begnion. Ike volunteers to lead the decoy force along with Ranulf to give the main forces time to cross the river, and Tibarn also offers some of his own men to help.

Before the decoy force arrives, Sothe informs Micaiah that their army will likely fight beorc forces—the Greil Mercenaries—soon, which neither looks forward to. Micaiah then asks Sothe to tell her more about Ike; he obliges, then she remarks that she and King Pelleas are nothing alike. While Sothe disparages Pelleas's lack of leadership skills, Micaiah continues to trust in him. Before the two can argue further, Ike and his force arrive, and they begin their mission.

After the battle has gone on for long enough, Ulki hears a message from Tibarn that the main forces have crossed the river, and relays this to Janaff, who relays it to Ike. The Gallians and hawks begin attacking the Daein forces from behind, surprising them. Knowing that they lost, Micaiah orders a retreat. Sothe notes that this has been the first time Micaiah has been unable to predict their enemies, then she seems to fall ill.

Meanwhile in Daein Keep, Duke Lekain informs Pelleas of Micaiah's failure, and threatens to break Begnion's more friendly relationship with Daein. Pelleas begs him to give them one more chance; Lekain obliges, and proceeds to warp out of the keep. Afterwards, Almedha attempts to console Pelleas, but he refuses her efforts and goes off to rest.

Beginning log

The Daein army takes to the field and deals a heavy blow to the army of the Laguz Alliance. This sudden aggression shocks the Alliance like a lightning bolt on a clear day. With their only avenue of retreat blocked, the forces of the Laguz Alliance begin to despair. As the last shred of hope is fading, Skrimir appears before his troops and rallies them on, bolstering their failing strength. Gallian morale is further improved by the appearance of Tibarn and Ike's forces, who aid the beast army with talon and steel.

Strategy

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

Similarly to the previous chapter, it is possible to have Jill and/or Zihark change sides from Micaiah's army to Ike's if they are recruited in this chapter. While this can give them more units as well as act as a useful way of transferring items to Ike's army, keep in mind that doing so will take them away from Micaiah's army for until Part 4. As such, it is not recommended to do this, as Micaiah's army is much more wanting for good units, while Ike's army is more than capable already. Jill in particular is also arguably one of the best units in Micaiah's army thanks to her great mobility and respectable stats, so taking her away from them will greatly hamper them in their upcoming chapters.
