(精霊の森の少女 Girl of the Spirit Forest) is the first chapter of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War following its Prologue. It depicts Sigurd's invasion of Verdane to rescue the captured Lady Adean, his first meeting with Deirdre and his first encounter with the Loptyrian Order as it manipulates Verdane into war.

Plot

Having taken Evans Castle past the Grannvale/Verdane border, Sigurd is visited by his old friend Eldigan of Nordion, who pledges his support in protecting Evans from the warmongering lords of Agustria. Meanwhile, at Verdane's Genoa Castle, the errant Princess Ayra of Isaach is forced by Kinbois to fight under his command with her ward, Crown Prince Shanan, held hostage by him. Elsewhere at Marpha Castle, Adean is released from imprisonment by Prince Jamke, who disagrees with Verdane's actions and seeks a peaceful resolution, along with the thief Dew; Jamke returns to the Verdane capital to attempt to dissuade his father again. After killing Kinbois and seizing Genoa, Sigurd learns of Ayra's plight from Shanan and convinces Ayra to stand down and ally with him, despite their status as scions of mutual enemy nations.

While Sigurd's army is out in the depths of Verdane, the malicious Lord Elliot of Heirhein in Agustria seizes upon the opportunity to assault Evans behind Sigurd's back, but is stopped by Eldigan and his Cross Knights. Adean and Dew rejoin Sigurd's army, which assaults Marpha Castle and kills Prince Gandolf. Inside Marpha, Sigurd rescues Deirdre from harassment by a ruffian, but she flees Marpha to return to the Spirit Forest.

At the Verdane capital, Jamke's efforts to dissuade King Bator from the conflict fall on deaf ears, such is the sway of his advisor, Sandima of the Loptyrians. Jamke is forced to lead a troupe of warriors into the field to stop Sigurd, but Bator begins to question Sandima's hold on him, for which he is mortally wounded. As Sigurd's army passes through the Spirit Forest, Deirdre approaches them again, telling them of Sandima's power and her ability to stop it with a Silence staff, and she and Sigurd confess their mutual attraction. Adean talks to Jamke and convinces him to ally with Sigurd to put an end to Sandima's hold on Verdane.

Upon killing Sandima and seizing Verdane Castle, Sigurd finds a dying Bator, who with his last words warns Sigurd of the rise of the Loptyr Sect and its hold on his and other nations.
