Tales of the Red Canyon is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 8 to Chapter 10. In this chapter, Byleth travels to the Red Canyon alone at the request of Sothis, in an attempt to recollect her memory.

Plot

Main article: Tales of the Red Canyon/Script

Sothis recounts that the Red Canyon Zanado triggered some of her hidden memories and bids Byleth travel there to investigate. As Byleth departs, they are noticed by the lord character, who rounds up the other students and follows them. Byleth arrives at Zanado, but is suddenly attacked by a pack of giant animals led by a Demonic Beast. Byleth is rescued by their students, and together they drive off the animals. Afterwards, the lord character berates Byleth for their recklessness, and they agree to pass off the day's events as a training exercise. Sothis apologizes to Byleth for nearly getting them killed, but manages to awaken an improved Divine Pulse in the process.

Strategy

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

Monsters are aplenty in this map. Bring lots of monster-effective weaponry, your best gambits, your best archers, and Catherine for Thunderbrand (unless you're a Black Eagle). Having Mercedes or Flayn with A Faith for Fortify would also be very helpful. This is a very good opportunity to rack up Wootz Steel to forge up Brave weapons and high-quality ranged weapons, as long as you can consistently inflict armor breaks. Before you do anything, make sure to have a Thief with the March Ring nab the chest which someone has kindly refilled since you were last here. Byleth starts off pinned down in the northwest corner of the map with monsters closing in on them fast. If you have them in a flying class, so much the better; you can have them dart south and link up with the students in short order. If not, your best move is to have the students smash north and regroup with the professor as fast as possible. Once you've regrouped, you're going to have to hold the line against an overwhelming horde. Armor break everyone, kill anything that so much as shows a hint of weakness, heal as much as you can, and bring down the Demonic Beast as soon as possible. It's a hard fight, but the three Divine Pulse charges you earn are more than worth it.
