The Rite of Rising

Marcelle, Simone

It is said that deep underground, below even Abyss, is a place called the Chasm of the Bound wherein lies the Chalice of Beginnings.
— Aelfric

The Rite of Rising (Japanese: 宝杯の儀の伝承 Legend of the Chalice Ceremony) is the third chapter of the Fire Emblem: Three Houses expansion Cindered Shadows.


Main article: The Rite of Rising/Script

Byleth approaches Aelfric to learn more about their parents. Aelfric recounts how Jeralt was a well-respected knight who often taught combat and tactics to the monastery children while Byleth's mother Sitri was a kind-hearted bookworm who had trouble expressing her emotions. Afterwards, the two return to the rest of the group, and Yuri explains that they only managed to learn from the mercenaries that they are after something in Abyss. Aelfric theorizes that the marauders are seeking the Chalice of Beginnings, a holy artifact crafted by Saint Seiros that can supposedly resurrect the dead through a ritual called the Rite of Rising. Byleth investigates the legends about the Chalice.

Afterwards, Aelfric refuses the group's request to search for the Chalice themselves. In defiance of his orders, the group travels through a secret passage to find the Chalice. During the trek, Constance's dream to restore House Nuvelle, an Adrestian noble house that fell in battle against Dagda and Brigid, comes up in conversation. Eventually, the group reaches a chasm far underneath the bridge at Garreg Mach Monastery. The surface-dwellers discover that Constance becomes extremely self-deprecating and submissive when exposed to sunlight. The party discovers an army of Golems and phantom soldiers, defeats them all, and recovers the Chalice.

Beginning log
