Bandit Leader

We were protecting your subjects, not your ego. I don't give a damn as to whether you can bring yourself to face a dead king.
— Felix

True Chivalry (Japanese: 真の騎士道 True Chivalry) is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 8 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Felix, and he must not have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Felix is called to Fraldarius territory to subdue a bandit attack.

Plot

Main article: True Chivalry/Script

Felix approaches Byleth and explains that ever since the Tragedy of Duscur, public order in Faerghus has disintegrated and bandit attacks are common; Felix's father Rodrigue has recalled him to Fraldarius territory to drive off one such attack. Felix asks Byleth and the students to accompany him.

With Felix and Byleth's aid, Rodrigue drives off the bandits. Afterwards, Rodrigue thanks them for their aid and admits he wouldn't have been able to face King Lambert if the village fell, but Felix accuses him of caring more about his ego than his subjects. A weary Rodrigue explains that his elder son Glenn died in the Tragedy of Duscur; he feels that Glenn died a hero's death and would have never forgiven himself if he had abandoned Lambert, but Felix feels that Rodrigue places no value on Glenn as a person.

Beginning log

Safety for the people of the Kingdom has been a growing concern, and Fraldarius territory is no exception. Felix has been called upon to help restore order back home.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

Normal/Hard

Your overarching goal is to protect the green NPC villagers from certain death at bandit hands. Unfortunately, they are all fairly far away from your starting position and are pretty dumb, so speed is of the essence. Start smashing your way through any bandit within reach and rush west and south. Cavalry and especially fliers are very useful for this map. Fortunately, the Kingdom soldiers are actually relatively strong and can hold the line until you reinforce them. On turn 2, Rodrigue will order the villagers to bolt for an escape point in the southwest, so it's a race to get over there and take out the enemies in the way so they can escape safely. Taking out the enemy strongholds suppresses their reinforcements, so make sure to get that done. If you can send a fast-moving unit up to take out the boss fast, you shouldn't have too much trouble earning the Aegis Shield. It doesn't actually matter if the villagers reach the escape point; as long as they are still breathing at the end of the chapter, it counts as a victory.

Maddening

Rodrigue's stats do not change from his Normal/Hard version. This means he is nearly guaranteed to die on the first enemy turn due to any two of the three Mercenaries targeting him, and his Aura will have roughly a 50% accuracy against most enemies in the level. If by some miracle he lives his first turn, there's still a small chance he will suicide himself into a nearby enemy with his Silver Lance. You'll either need to take out the units in his vicinity via Cavalry or fliers, or block off one of the squares beside Rodrigue so that only one Mercenary can attack him on the first turn. Managing Rodrigue throughout the level will be your biggest concern, as he will actively seek out fights he cannot win. As soon as all villagers are safe, make sure to kill the boss before Rodrigue reaches him.
