Talons Alight (Japanese: 舞い降りる鉤爪 Talons Alight) is chapter 15 of Hector's tale and is the first Hector exclusive chapter.


Main article: Talons Alight/Script

While Eliwood and Hector are finishing their business in Castle Laus they are suddenly attacked by a group of mercenaries. Eliwood speculates that they are under attack by the band of mercenaries led by Eubans, The Hurricane. The group is extremely loyal to Laus and famed for their surprise attacks. Fortunately, the two lords were prepared for a sneak attack and manage to defend the throne. The mercenaries retreat before Hector and Eliwood can give chase, allowing them to give chase to their true target, Darin.

Beginning log

Hector and his companions defeat Marquess Laus's son, Erik, and seize Castle Laus. After the battle, they rest in the castle and settle their affairs. They diligently prepare for any possible counterattack. They should've spotted anyone attempting to approach the castle. And yet, somehow, they find themselves facing an unforseen attack...

Hannah's Augury

Price: Is gba gold.png50
Intro: Heh heh heh... So, you seek insight into your next battle?

Augury: Ah... I see you are surrounded, or soon will be. A dangerous situation, to be sure... Don't worry about defeating every foe you face. Just mind your defenses. And beware the enemy leader. Do not foolishly anger him. Observe his reach and the extent of his powers. Those with weak defenses would do well to remain behind. That's common sense, yes? What else... Oh, yes. Of course. If you would protect your valuables, watch out for thieves. If you don't, they'll steal your eyes from their sockets, they will! all I see.
