Across the River

It is said that captives from all over Thracia are sent here. Those captured from our army are probably being held here as well. We must hurry, or everything will be lost...
— August to Leif

The Prison Camp (Japanese: 捕虜収容所 Prison Camp) is the side quest of the twenty-first chapter of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. In order to play this chapter, at least one unit must have been captured prior to the end of the previous chapter.


Main article: The Prison Camp/Script

Leif and a group of his soldiers enter Fort Danzig to free the prisoners before they are executed. The leader of the fortress garrison, Zaom, instructs his soldiers to defend the fortress.

Meanwhile, August informs Leif that his previously captured soldiers are probably in this fortress. However, he also warns the prince that he must hurry – a battalion of Loptr Mages is on its way, which Leif suspects are the Welkenrosen.

Leif's troops eventually escape the fortress. Shortly after, Julius and Ishtar arrive at the fortress and Julius muses on the ineptitude of House Friege, supposedly proven by their struggle to hold Connacht against Seliph and their failure to protect Fort Danzig from Leif. Ishtar apologizes, but Julius says she is not to blame and urges her to go with him to Miletos instead of joining the fight in Connacht. Supposedly, Hilda invited him and he wants to spend some time with Ishtar there. Ishtar mentions that her mother Hilda is hunting children, but Julius makes no comment. Julius then tells Ishtar that she must send Reinhardt away because he cannot stand the presence of the general. Ishtar tries to protest by saying that Reinhardt has always looked out for her, but Julius claims that he hates the way Reinhardt looks at her and threatens to claw his eyes out. Ishtar is able to negotiate that Reinhardt will only be sent home, and then she and Julius leave the fort.

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

As mentioned already, all units prior to this chapter that were captured by enemies without being reclaimed by the player or left behind in escape chapters will reappear here for recruitment.

This is your only opportunity to reclaim your captured units. After this chapter, any units that get captured/left behind are gone for good (in other words, they're effectively dead for the remainder of the playthrough).


  • There are positions for sixty-four prisoners; the player can have a maximum of forty-three units captured by this chapter, so the remaining twenty-one go unused.
