||A chosen warrior come from the future to bring hope to a dying world...I am Owain! Now, atone for your deeds in the eternal hellfire of perdition! RADIANT...DAAAAAAWN!
Scion of Legend (Japanese: 伝説の継承者 Legendary Heir) is the fifth paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. As a paralogue chapter, its events are not integral to the game's main storyline and can be done at the player's leisure. The chapter is unlocked after both clearing chapter 13 and have Lissa married. Reaching this chapter has additional requirements; the player must either clear chapter 14 or unlock paralogues 10 and 9.
In this chapter, the Shepherds come across a village under attack by ruffians seeking treasure, as well as a mysterious youth apparently seeking a sword not even native to the game's lands. Something the mysterious youth does possess eventually comes as a shocking surprise to his mother.

We cut to a forest situated somewhere in eastern Valm where Lissa asks Lucina have begun talking; the former asks if she's still alive in the latter's future, then asks what she's like in the future. Lucina (potentially lying to avoid alienating Lissa) reveals that future Lissa is warm and kind even among the darkness and desolation, her smile serves as a beacon of hope for those around her; Lissa states she'd better get cracking if she wants to live up to that. Lissa then asks if she has any children; Lucina reveals that she has a son named Owain. Lissa asks what Owain is like, with Lucina revealing Owain to be quite colorful; Lissa says she's not sure she wants to know what that means. Lissa prepares to ask Lucina if Owain has something, but opts not to do so; Lucina asks Lissa if she's sure, with Lissa saying she just remembered she promised to help Chrom with something and leaves the area.
We cut to another area, where a ruffian is reporting to his boss that the treasure is in this area and that he's sure of it. The boss of the ruffians, Gecko, asks a woman to speak and asks her where she put something; the woman says she honestly hasn't heard of any treasures in the area, with Gecko saying they're done and tells his underlings that she's useless and to kill her. The ruffians are about to kill the woman when an unknown man arrives on the scene and tells the ruffians to halt; the ruffians ask who he is, to which he introduces himself as one chosen by forces beyond mortal comprehension, asking the ruffians to see how his sword hand twitches, hungering for justice. The man tells the ruffians to leave right then if they value life and limb, for he cannot stay his hungry hand; the ruffian says the man has rocks in his head, then is about to reveal the man is the first to do something, right as the man kills the ruffian. The man says he tried to warn the ruffian, his hand cannot be denied; the woman from before thanks the man for saving her life. Chrom arrives on the scene and notices the man's stance; Gecko then asks the man who he is, with the man introducing himself as a wolf who howls for justice, an eagle who cries for love. As the game reveals the man's name to be Owain, he reveals himself as a chosen warrior from the future to bring hope to a dying world, then introducing himself by name; Owain then tells Gecko to atone for his deeds in the eternal hellfire of perdition before shouting a seemingly-random phrase. After a brief moment of silence, Owain curses out his sword hand, saying this is no time for games; he tells Gecko that he's escaped fate this time, but to remember that justice always prevails. After speechless moments from both Gecko and Chrom, Lissa arrives on the scene and reveals Owain to be really weird, with Gecko following up saying he knew Owain had rocks in his head; Gecko tells his surviving underlings to ignore Owain and keep searching for the treasure—take everything shiny and run for the hills. Owain tells Gecko it's not his day, that the legendary blade Mystletainn is fated for his twitching hand alone; Chrom tells Robin that he is so lost right now and wonders what Owain is even talking about, later saying to never mind and worry about taking out the bandits, sure everything will sort itself out. Preparations take place at this point; the battle begins straight away once battle preparations finish.
Owain can be spoken to with either Chrom or Lissa. Should Chrom speak to Owain, Owain will be having another sword hand episode when Chrom apologizes for interrupting Owain's apparent conversation, then asks Owain about his stance—Owain may have crafted his own style around it, but it's clearly from the royal house of Ylisse. Owain mistakes Chrom for another future traveller and reveals he's never seen anyone like him; mistaking Chrom for a villain, he asks Chrom who he is. Chrom introduces himself and says he has no quarrel with Owain, but if they have to fight; Owain cuts him off with a shout of joy upon hearing that who he's speaking to is indeed his uncle. Owain asks to start over, this time as a fellow scion of the great hero, greeting himself as kin and kind; from across the misty shores of time, bearing forth tidings—Chrom cuts him off asking Owain to keep it brief. Owain then introduces himelf as Lissa's son from the future; Chrom states that wasn't what he was expecting to hear, then asks Owain if he came with Lucina, to which Owain confirms—the blood they share have drawn them like moths to flame. Owain continues his speech by stating like a great tidal wave of heroism, they crash upon the shores of evil—Chrom cuts Owain off asking if he can fight or if he just talks a lot; Owain says his mettle in combat is the stuff of legends, that bards sing of something of his, then notices Chrom walking away, asking him to wait. Owain tells Chrom he has one request—if he finds a sword called Mystletainn, to permit him to wield it; Chrom reveals he heard Owain wailing about that point before, and asks what kind of blade Mystletainn is, with Owain reveling Mystletainn being a legendary blade imbued with the very power of the gods, if the tales are to be believed, and he would use it to defend Lissa. Chrom states he should simply be happy Lissa has a devoted son. Should Lissa speak to Owain, she'll attempt to thank Owain for helping out—but when Owain cries out "mom", Lissa acts shocked, followed by Owain saying he's crossed oceans to find her, then introducing himself as her son from the future, asking she look at the ring on his finger—a perfect match to Lissa's. The ring is supposed to be unique in the entire world, yet here are two of them, positive proof that his claims are true. Lissa asks Owain to start again from the beginning; after a conversation where the two acquaint, Owain states there is none prouder to bear his name, and that he's come to part the dark clouds that hang forebodingly over this era. Once Owain's conversation with his relative finishes, the player may now control Owain at this point.
If Owain speaks to the sage in the southeast building, he'll trigger a special conversation. The sage tells Owain he's a kind soul and prepares to give Owain something; Owain reveals that, by Ike's ghost, he's at last found the fated mate to his sword hand—the divine blade Mystletainn. The sage reveals that Owain has made a mistake, that this blade is an extremely common make, that he's been using it to dig a well, but he figured Owain might do something—Owain cuts him off by telling the sword, which he believes to be Mystletainn, to come with him and that destiny beckons. The sage also reveals he used the sword to cut vegetables before it got dull, but then notices Owain has left the scene. The player will receive a sword called Missiletainn at this point. Should someone other than Owain speak to this sage, they'll instead get a Speed Tonic.
Once the battle finishes, one of the sages reveals that the owe the Shepherds a great debt for protecting their village. After a brief fade, we cut to Lissa seeking out Owain, heading in the direction Lucina said she saw him go; after a brief pause, Lissa says she should just forget the matter she was thinking about, if Owain doesn't have what she's thinking of either, when a surviving ruffian jumps her and asks she surrender her money or else lose her head. Lissa asks the ruffian to stay back, with Owain jumping onto the scene and telling the ruffian that nobody hurts his mother, belting out another seemingly-random phrase in the process as he proceeds to kill the ruffian. Once the ruffian is down, Owain asks Lissa if she's all right; Lissa says she's fine, then notices something on Owain's arm, with Owain noting it's nothing but a torn sleeve. Lissa then asks about something else on Owain's arm; Owain apologizes and tells Lissa he should have shown her before, then reveals his Brand, the one carried by House Ylisse, telling Lissa there's no more need to worry. Lissa then asks Owain if he knows of something, with Owain adding that Lissa's Brand never surfaced and that he told her as much, something that always weighed on her; she should have seen how happy her future self was the day Owain's Brand first appeared, that she was sobbing and laughing for an hour without pause. Lissa says she was hoping to grow out of the crying thing, and Owain tells Lissa that there's to be no more worrying—it was mere chance Lissa's Brand never surfaced, that they're all family linked by blood; Lissa is indeed Chrom's sister, and Owain's brand proves their lineage. Lissa thanks Owain as she starts to cry, with Owain thanking her; Owain later reveals that, as scions of the hero, it falls on them to ensure his dark future doesn't come true. Owain asks Lissa to come with him, that they shall fight together; he then has another sword hand episode, with Lissa telling Owain he should get it looked at.
