Valorous Roland (Japanese: 勇者ローラン The Hero Roland) is the twenty-eighth chapter of Eliwood's tale in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

Plot

Main article: Valorous Roland/Script

At the Dragon's Gate, Nergal demands that Ninian open the gate; she refuses, and Nergal attempts to force her. Ninian resists Nergal's power and suddenly transforms into a dragon. Ninian seizes her opportunity and escapes; Nergal taunts her as she flees.

Eliwood and company enter the shrine of the legendary Roland to find it filled with lava. Athos explains that the legendary weapons needed to be protected, and warns that Durandal is guarded by those who fought in The Scouring.

Once Eliwood manages to bypass Georg and approach the altar, Athos calls out the spirit of the hero Roland. Athos informs Roland of the group's need for the legendary weapons; Roland grants Athos' request and bestows Durandal onto Eliwood.

A dragon appears before Eliwood and Hector.

Eliwood exits the shrine, prepared to face Nergal. However, an Ice Dragon suddenly appears; Eliwood, guided by Durandal, strikes the dragon down in a single blow. As the dragon dies, Athos notices something is wrong, but is interrupted by Nergal's sudden appearance. Nergal claims Ninian proved to be useless, and puts Nils in a trance to use take him. Eliwood demands to know what Nergal did with Ninian; Nergal states that Eliwood has just killed Ninian, and begins to taunt him for it. Ninian takes her human form once again, and Eliwood rushes to her side. Dying, Ninian tells Eliwood that she is glad he is unharmed, but Eliwood is beside himself with grief and regret. Nergal attempts to depart with Nils, but Athos attacks him with Forblaze. Nergal takes little damage, and boldly proclaims that no legendary weapon can do him harm. Nergal then leaves without Nils, claiming he does so out of respect for the man Athos used to be. Soon after, Nils awakens to see the corpse of his sister, and is himself grief-stricken.
