Royal Blood (Japanese: 生贄 Sacrifice) is the seventeenth chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors. During this chapter, Rowan and Lianna confront Darios and learn that their mother is still alive.

Plot

Main article: Royal Blood/Script

While heading towards Aytolis Castle, it becomes clear that there is an excitement in the air with everyone preparing for the next fight. Meanwhile inside the castle, King Oskar informs his son Darios that it won't be long before the ceremony to obtain the Chaos Dragon's power is complete, with them only needing the blood of a royal. However they hear noises from outside and Darios decides to greet his former friends. He greets Rowan and Lianna and reveals that their mother, Queen Yelena, is in fact still alive and is intended to be the sacrifice in the ceremony. The twins are shocked to hear this with both of them vowing to save her and stop Darios.

After a long battle, Rowan and Lianna are finally able to corner Darios, only for Oskar to remind him about the ceremony. Several of the twins' allies arrive, and Darios offers to spare Yelena if the twins are willing to surrender their swords. They comply, only for Darios to reveal it was just a ruse. However Takumi fires a shot to disarm him, allowing Rowan to attack Darios while Lianna retrieves her mother. Darios attempts to attack back with magic, only for Chrom and Marth to deflect it. Seeing his plan seemingly foiled, Darios angrily shouts at the party while radiating a purple energy.

Summary

The party pursues Darios out of the crumbling citadel and to Aytolis Castle. As the ceremony continues, he flashes the twins a crooked smile moments before he strikes.

Strategy

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

It is entirely possible to beat the map as soon as you reach Darios; however doing so is not recommended as you would be dealing with the dragon statues as well as missing out on experience and support points.
