Plot

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 the mercenaries are led by Eubans, whose mercenary company is extremely loyal to Laus and famed for their surprise attacks. 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 pursue to their true target, Darin.

Strategy

Hannah's Augury
Portrait hannah fe07.png
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! That...is all I see.
