The jerk's entire fortune is soaked in blood. Do you want to rebuild your own house using that kind of money? I mean, it's all just rumors, but I think it still might be worth investigating.
— Dorothea

Rumored Nuptials (Japanese: 王国貴族結婚余聞 Kingdom Noble Marriage) is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 7 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Dorothea or Ingrid and neither one must have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Dorothea intervenes to prevent Ingrid from being married off to an unscrupulous noble.

Plot

Main article: Rumored Nuptials/Script

Byleth and Dorothea bump into Ingrid, who has received a letter from her father, Count Galatea. The letter explains that a noble has proposed marriage to Ingrid. However, Dorothea recognizes the noble's name from her days as an opera singer, explains that his entire fortune is nothing but blood money, and warns Ingrid to stay far away from him. At Dorothea's behest, Byleth sorties their students to investigate the noble and find proof of his misdeeds so they can call off the marriage.

The group discovers proof of the noble's crimes and prepare to return to Garreg Mach Monastery. However, rogues hired by the noble ambush them at Ailell with the intention of kidnapping Ingrid and killing her companions. Byleth, Dorothea, and Ingrid break through the rogues and escape to the monastery. Afterwards, Ingrid reveals that the marriage has been called off. If Ingrid is a member of Byleth's class, she also receives Lúin, the Heroes' Relic of House Galatea.

Beginning log

Reinforcements

  • For the first three turns of five-turn cycles, repeating indefinitely; stop after the Merchant is defeated
  • Upon Ingrid nearing the western heal tile +, before defeating the Merchant
  • Upon nearing the east chest, or nearing the large central crater after defeating the Merchant
  • Upon nearing the large central crater after defeating the Merchant
  • Upon Ingrid nearing the southeast corner of the map

Strategy

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

Note the crater tiles covering the ground. These burn anyone dumb or unlucky enough to stand on them at the start of their turn, so watch out. They can't kill you, though; only bring you down to 1 HP. Your first move should be to clear out the three thugs just south of your starting location and claim the Killer Axe in the chest. Afterwards, split your forces into two teams. The north group should make their way over to the Merchant summoning reinforcements at the northeast corner while the south group should head south and clean up the bandits down that way. Overall, this isn't a very hard map; just don't forget to get the eastern chest, as Linhardt/Mercedes/Marianne/Flayn would really appreciate that Healing Staff.
