The Peddler Merlinus (Japanese: 行商人マリナス The Peddler Merlinus) is chapter 13x in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and the first sidequest of Eliwood's and Hector's tale. To play this chapter, you must visit the northern village in the previous chapter.

Plot

Main article: The Peddler Merlinus/Script

Hector and Eliwood are preparing to camp outside a Caelin village for the night. Eliwood entertains the thought of visiting Castle Caelin to check on Lyn, but in the midst of his pondering, the two lords hear a scream. They follow the scream to its source and find a merchant being harassed by a group of bandits. Eliwood and Hector attempt to intervene but the bandits’ leader Puzon mistakes them for rival bandits attempting to steal their target, thus beginning the battle.

The bandits eventually tire of fighting and flee the battlefield, still believing that Eliwood and Hector are bandits. The merchant intorduces himself as Merlinus, thanks the two lords for coming to his aid and attempts to give them a token of his thanks. Hector rejects Merlinus’s token and, instead, asks him if he would like to accompany him on his and Eliwood’s journey to manage their merchandise. Merlinus gladly accepts Hector’s offer.

Beginning log

Eliwood's Tale: "The dying words of Lord Helman stun Eliwood beyond belief. “Darin, the marquess of Laus, knows all…” Despite the pain it brings, Eliwood takes this newfound knowledge to heart and sets out for Laus once again. On the way to Laus, he travels through a Caelin village. Eliwood and his party decide to rest there for a night."

Hector's Tale: "The dying words of Lord Helman, the marquess of Santaruz…only serve to strengthen Hector’s convictions. “Darin, the marquess of Laus, knows all…” To ascertain the truth of what he’s heard, Hector departs for Laus. To reach Laus from Santaruz, Hector’s group must pass through a village in Caelin. They decide to rest there for the night."
