The Nest of Evil (Japanese: 悪の巣 Nest of Evil) is the sixth chapter of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem Book II and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem.

Plot

Main articles: The Nest of Evil/Script and The Nest of Evil/Conversations

Marth's forces storm the inside of Olbern Castle, which is being defended by General Lang. Lang tells one of his mercenaries, Navarre, to wait for the Altean army to open the gate and then charge—Navarre is in fact Samuel in disguise, who is terrified at the prospect of facing the Altean army, particularly Ogma.

The battle begins, and during it, Julian may find Rickard and recruit him into Marth's army. Caeda and Ogma can also both recruit Samuel. Eventually, the battle ends with Lang's death and with Marth's army finding Bishop Wendell held captive in the castle. Wendell tells Marth about the Starsphere, which has been split into twelve fragments that scattered across the continent, and which must be put back together. He suggests that Marth go to the Fane of Raman in order to find more shards, and Marth agrees, as it is along the way to Altea, his next destination.
