The Ostian Revolt (Japanese: オスティアの反乱 Ostian revolt) is the seventh chapter in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. In this chapter, the Lycian League Army must make its way through the city of Ostia to reach its castle, taken by the rebels.

Plot

Main article: The Ostian Revolt/Script

Roy's forces enter Ostia after he learns of a rebellion orchestrated by General Leygance and his lieutenant, Debias. Lilina is kept hostage inside the castle, and is the primary motivation for Roy coming here.

As Roy's troops arrive, Leygance and Debias discuss a group of Hector's Ilian mercenaries that keeps fighting them. They intend to beat the mercenaries into submission and potentially use Lilina's hostage status as a last resort. Leygance then enters the castle interior, leaving Debias behind.

Merlinus tells Roy that even though most Ostian troops have joined the rebellion out of fear, a group of Ilian mercenaries remains loyal to Hector, as Ilian mercenaries have a code of never betraying their employers. Merlinus has also learned that one of Bern's Wyvern Generals is going to arrive in Ostia alongside a legion of wyvern riders. Roy realizes they have no hope of fighting a Wyvern General on their own and suggests asking the Etrurian Mage General, Cecilia, for help, as she is his former tactics teacher and will most likely answer the call. Merlinus claims that doing so will put Lycia in a bad political position, but Roy counters by saying Lycia may not have a future if they do not successfully defend it now. He then reveals that he has already written a letter to Cecilia, but has yet to send it. Merlinus caves in and sends it.

The battle begins, and as it starts, the Ilian mercenaries Trec and Zelot appear to fight alongside Roy. Soon after, a third mercenary – Noah – has a conversation with Fir, whom he had just beaten at the arena. Fir overconfidently challenged him and refused to surrender, but Noah spared her anyway, prompting her to thank him and making her declare that she will learn from this. Fir tells Noah that she will travel to the Western Isles to train against the miners there, and that she is traveling the world to better her sword skills, like her mother before her. Fir then leaves, and Noah joins the battle.

The battle eventually ends with Debias dead and the city in control of the Lycian Army. Roy muses about the fact Bern was powerful enough to wipe out Hector's army, even though Hector was known to be a great general. He also wonders why a dragonslaying weapon would be in Ostia, but knowing that he will have to ask Lilina, he focuses his efforts on storming the castle and rescuing her for now.

Strategy

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

Roy's army has finally reached Ostia, and the Lycia arc is about to end. The player should bring their best units to this chapter; mounted units will come in handy for visiting all eight houses. There is no need to hurry, though; there are no Thieves or Brigands who could destroy the houses, so it is recommended first to defeat the nearest enemies and then collect items.

The most challenging aspect of this chapter is to keep alive Zelot and Trec. Noah is not a problem, as he arrives after turn two, and Roy should be already there to recruit him. If the player is interested in the other two units, they should send two strong mounted units to rescue them, such as Marcus, Alen or Lance (the last two only if they have been trained.) Shanna is not a good option due to the three archers who are surrounding the area.

The left side of the player's army should claim the trees there as soon as possible. The right party will face the biggest problems, as most enemies will come from this side. If needed, the player should advance slowly and take their time. The best strategy should be to rescue Zelot and Trec, and to bring them to Roy, instead of sending the lord to the fray. Given that most enemies use lances, the probabilities of Roy leaving the battlefield without a scratch are quite low.

The first arena of the game is located here; it is the building that Noah comes from. The player should keep in mind that units who are defeated here cannot be used any longer (in other words, they die) and all units will use iron weapons to fight. A way to measure how strong the enemies there can be is the amount of money the dealer asks to bet. If it is more than 800 gold, it is better to leave the arena.

After turn 10, four Cavaliers will arrive from the south, so the player should either advance quickly or leave some units behind to deal with them. The most dangerous of them is at level fifteen and has a Silver Lance; the rest are quite similar to the original enemies. The other batch of reinforcements will arrive after any unit crosses either the doors or the small open square in the same wall, with eight enemy units appearing next to the boss. Most of them can attack from a distance, so the player should try to play the open spaces to their advantage, creating a choke point.

The boss is quite easy; Roy's Rapier, the Hammer, the Armorslayer, or magic spells will make short work of him. As a side note, Debias is the first boss with whom someone can have a special conversation—in this case, Bors. Once the boss has been defeated, Roy can seize the gate, and the chapter will end.
