I'm surprised we lasted this long against the Empire's legions. It's been half a year already...this may be it.
— Leif to August

The Scion of Light (Japanese: 光の公子 The Noble of Light) is the twentieth chapter of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.


Main article: The Scion of Light/Script

Six months have passed since the death of Duke Dryas and the retreat from Ulster. Leif's Liberation Army has been defending Leonster from the Empire's siege under General Baráth, but the Empire has gradually taken the fortress piece by piece, driving Leif's forces into the castle's last corner.

General Reinhardt of Friege meets with Baráth's forces outside of Leonster to report on developments in western Thracia. He informs Baráth that the rebel forces of Seliph have taken over Melgen and defeated Prince Ishtore and Lady Liza. He also informs Baráth that King Bloom is dissatisfied with Baráth's failure to capture Leonster, and urges the general to act quickly, warning him that there will be negative consequences if he does not. Reinhardt then departs, and Baráth orders an all-out assault on Leonster.

Leif's forces try to hold out against the enemy until Seliph's army arrives. They eventually succeed in defending the castle long enough for Baráth's forces to retreat. Diarmuid, Seliph's emissary, arrives at Leonster to inform Leif and August that Seliph has besieged Ulster and that the fortress will fall within a few days, which is why the forces besieging Leonster were forced to retreat.

If Nanna is alive and uncaptured, Diarmuid then meets with her and informs her of the fate of their mother, Lachesis, claiming that Lewyn of Silesse from Seliph's army told him. Lachesis allegedly vanished while trying to get to Isaach, but she is still alive somewhere. Diarmuid promises Nanna that once the war is over, they will look for their mother. Then Diarmuid asks Leif if he can join his army, and Leif agrees.

Units are arranged based on their position in deployment order after Leif.

The chipped sections of wall can be broken by an enemy that moves to do so; it consumes their turn, and turns the walls and nearby floors into wasteland.
