The Shadows of Adrestia (Japanese: 帝国の闇 Darkness of the Empire) is the third chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes on the Scarlet Blaze route.

Plot

Main article: The Shadows of Adrestia/Script

With Tomas driven out of the monastery, Edelgard elects to use his treachery as a way to convince Rhea to lend her support in ousting Lord Arundel from the Empire. As Shez and Arval brood over the latter's possible connection to Kronya and her ilk, Edelgard recruits Shez to her cause. Together with Hubert, Dorothea, Petra, Monica, and Jeritza, the group makes for Enbarr. Realizing what is happening, Lord Arundel orders his men to warn his associate in the Kingdom, Cleobulus, of Edelgard's actions. Edelgard and her loyalists besiege the palace, arrest Duke Aegir, and force Lord Arundel to drop his own disguise before fleeing.

After the battle, Hubert explains that Arundel is a member of a hostile faction seeking to conquer Fódlan from the shadows, a faction he has dubbed "those who slither in the dark". The remaining Black Eagles arrive in Enbarr and, together with Counts Bergliez and Hevring, swear fealty to Edelgard and prepare to crown her emperor. Edelgard orders Counts Bergliez and Hevring to begin preparations for her plans in two years' time and appoints Count Varley to the post of bishop of the newly restored Southern Church. Later, she visits Shez in their quarters and explains her vision of a world in which people rise to greatness not because of station, but because of merit. Edelgard convinces Shez to accept a post as an officer in her new military.

In light of the coup in Adrestia, in addition to a succession crisis in Faerghus and an attempted Almyran invasion of Leicester, Rhea closes the Officer's Academy and sends the students home.
