Hmm...Maybe it was the first world unlocked by Askr--but the history of the term isn't of interest to me. Right now the people here are celebrating this world's first hero, who was named Anri. Can you just imagine what Heroes we might find here. Does that not excite you? No doubt the Order of Heroes has noticed us and will try to get in our way...

This chapter was added to the game as part of an update released on April 20, 2020, alongside its featured characters, and a number of related quests, which were available until May 20.

Trivia

  • This chapter is the first to introduce a themed world based on the backstory of a game's events, in this case the World of Origin being a world based on events prior to Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light. Ironically, the world based on Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light proper, a world that can be inferred to exist due to Wrys's presence from the game's initial launch and the fact that Mystery of the Emblem and New Mystery of the Emblem have separate themed worlds, had still not been properly named by the time of this chapter's debut.
