Where the Goddess Dwells

Opening Narration FETH Blue Lions symbol.png

Ss fe16 chapter 10 mural.png
Long ago, the guardian Seiros made an appearance during this moon. She had been summoned by the goddess, whose soul was suffering as the flames of war raged across Fódlan. Some believe that high in the sky above Seiros, the Immaculate One's mighty wings are what powered the strong winds carrying the guardian and her forces into battle.
— Chapter 10 introductory narration

Event - The Enemy

Date: 1/2
Outer City Wall
Evening

(Somewhere near Garreg Mach, Dimitri is hiding...)
Sothis: What are you doing at this hour? Ooh, I know... You are eavesdropping! I must admit that I approve.
(Byleth is around the area as well. Then, they silently approaches Dimitri to check that's worth hiding from.)
Dimitri: Professor? We must remain quiet...
(Both then pay attention to the ensuing scene in front of their eyes.)
Sothis: I see... The Flame Emperor and Monica...and the mage who rescued Monica.

Choice 1 Choice 2
It's time for revenge. What is that guy's name?
(Support points with Dimitri go up.)
Dimitri: Not yet, Professor.
Dimitri: I don't know, but if we keep listening, we might be able to find out.

Sothis: An unexpected chance to hear their plans. Patience, patience!

(The camera then switches to Monica, the Flame Emperor and the pale dark mage that rescued her...)
Monica: Oh, thank you. You saved me!
Thales: If you were to die, then the mystery of our bodies would be revealed. Preventing that was my only aim.
Thales: I'm afraid you must remain, Kronya. There is something I need you to do.
Monica: Oh, of course. I am always happy to cooperate with Solon. Leave it to me.
Flame Emperor: How annoying.
(The Flame Emperor doesn't sound comfortable...)
Thales: Flame Emperor... Is she offending you? Unfortunately, we cannot take our eyes off her, so there is nothing to be done.
Thales: You are our greatest creation. We used the defiled beast's blood as the fuel to your flame, that you may burn even the gods. Now is the time to cleanse Fódlan of that power, and bring forth our salvation.
Flame Emperor: There will be no salvation for you and your kind. Those responsible for such gruesome deeds in Duscur and Enbarr.
Thales: All so that you may acquire the strength you need. All for a purpose...

Dimitri: I've got you... Finally...
(Dimitri suddenly speaks. Is he...?)

Choice 1 Choice 2 Choice 3
Wait. Don't go out there Let's keep listening.

Dimitri: If we don't act now, we'll miss our chance!

Flame Emperor: Hmm...
(The Flame Emperor suddently looks at Dimitri's direction. Then, they quickly throw a sharp object at it.)

(The sound of a metal object falling into the ground is heard. It seems to have missed it's target.)
Thales: Hmph. Even if someone has overheard us, there is nothing they can do. There have always been rats in the walls, and there always will be.
Flame Emperor: ...
(One by one, Monica, Thales and the Flame Emperor teleport out of the scene, leaving Byleth and Dimitri alone to search the place.)

(Just then, Dimitri happens to find the weapon the masked figure in red just used.)

FETH dagger.png

Dimitri: No... The dagger...

Choice 1 Choice 2
What's wrong? What about the dagger?

Dimitri: It...no. Never mind. It couldn't possibly be so.
Dimitri: Professor, those are the ones we must destroy. They're the bastards who killed my family and Jeralt.
Dimitri: For now, let's return to the monastery and regroup. As for the Flame Emperor's dagger...I'll hold on to it for the time being.

Exploration: Where the Goddess Dwells

Potential Dates: 1/4, 1/11, 1/18 and 1/25

Event: Forest Invitation

Date: 1/30
Entrance Hall
Daytime

(Dimitri finds Byleth on the Entrance Hall.)
Dimitri: Professor, have you heard? They say we've finally located the enemy. It seems they're hiding in the Sealed Forest, right near the monastery. Lady Rhea has summoned all of the knights to return and take them down. And all of this is being done in secret. Why? To keep us...no, to keep you in the dark.

Why in secret?

Dimitri: Lady Rhea likely assumed you wouldn't be able to stop yourself from confronting the enemy if you knew their location. But that is not how this story ends, is it? Professor... We're at the ready. Order us to depart, and we'll fight at your side.
(Rhea, Seteth and a Church Swordsmaster interrupt the scene.)
Rhea: No. I will not allow it.
Seteth: This discovery comes just when the knights are at their busiest. It is all too likely that our foes revealed themselves to lure you out there.
Seteth: They are the ones who took Jeralt from you... I know how you must despise them, but I must ask you to rein in your personal feelings for now.

You can't stop me.

Rhea: Please, Professor. Do not act carelessly. I ask that you leave this to us. Losing you so soon after losing Jeralt would be unbearable.
Dimitri: Lady Rhea, Seteth. Please, try to understand our reasoning before you refuse.
(Dimitri begins speaking in favor of Byleth.)
Dimitri: With most of the knights still far away, we cannot afford for you two to leave the monastery undefended. he enemy's strength is yet unknown. The only warriors who likely stand a chance are those who wield Relics.
Dimitri: With all that in mind, it's obvious who should be dispatched, is it not? If the professor leaves, we will go as well. We've already made preparations and are ready to depart at a moment's notice. Surely you must see that we cannot wait any longer for the knights to gather. Please... Do what must be done and give us the order.
(Rhea then looks at Byleth.)
Rhea: Professor... Do you agree with this strategy?
(Byleth nods.)
Rhea: Understood. I will give you the order.
Rhea: Destroy the enemy that is hiding in the Sealed Forest... You have the protection of the goddess on your side. Whatever happens, you shall overcome.
Dimitri: No matter what enemy we face, we will not fail. I promise you that.

Event - The Sealed Forest

Date: 1/31
The Sealed Forest
Daytime

(Byleth, the Blue Lions and Flayn have arrived at the forest.)
Dedue: The Sealed Forest is up ahead. Stay alert.
Ingrid: This is for Captain Jeralt. I will not falter.
Flayn: It is time to repay the kindness of the professor who saved my life!
Ashe: Leave it to us, Professor. I'll give it my all.
Sylvain: Fighting Tomas... It will be difficult, that's for certain.
Mercedes: I don't really love the idea of fighting people I know...
Annette: We don't have a choice. Even if it's difficult, an enemy is an enemy. We've just got to get it over with!
Felix: Just kill them from behind. As long as you don't see their faces, you won't know if you know them.
(Something about Felix's comment unnerves Dimitri.)
Dimitri: We won't know unless we see their face... Yes, I suppose that is true.
(Dimitri then looks at Byleth's eyes.)
Dimitri: Professor... I hope you know I meant what I told you before. Your enemy is my enemy. And I will follow you until the end, whatever that end may be.

Choice 1 Choice 2
That's reassuring. Let's do our best.

Dimitri: Yes...right. We'll fulfill our duty together. We've come this far. We can't stop now. I hope you know that you can rely on us. No matter who the enemy is, we are prepared to cut them down.
(Dimitri's expression turns grim all of a sudden...)
Dimitri: Yes... No matter who they may be..

Battle: The Sealed Forest Snare

Before Battle

Dimitri: Demonic Beasts! The enemy was always intending to lure us here...
(The camera then focuses on the Demonic Beasts lying around Monica's soldiers...?)

Player Phase 1

Monica: Hello! You're here! Welcome to the forest of death!
Monica: My name is Kronya. This weakling girl was just a borrowed look for me.

(Monica does a backflip in the air as she seamlessly discards her disguise.)
(Her true skin is ghastly white just like Solon and Thales's, one of her eyes is covered by her short hair, and she wearing a black leotard containing three sharp tails...?)

Kronya: This is what I really look like! Now, you vermin... I'll take down every last one of you!

Enemy Phase 1

Kronya: If this takes too long, I might be forced to escape. Oh, or do you simply intend to let me go? How accommodating of you!
Kronya: As for me, I intend to kill you all.
(Kronya laughts smugly.)

Boss - Kronya

Vs Anyone:

How cute, you're trying so hard! But now it's time to die!
— Kronya Vs Anyone

Vs Byleth:

You're a fool to be so brazen. You'll never avenge your father at this rate. I'll have to kill you too! With my own hands!
— Kronya Vs Byleth

Vs Leonie:

Leonie: Monica. You'll pay for what you've done.
Kronya: I told you! I am not Monica, I am Kronya! Do not call me by that fake name!
Leonie: I don't care what you're called. I don't care if it takes my last breath. I'll kill you.
Kronya: Please! My powers are beyond your comprehension. You're just a filthy worm!

— Kronya Vs Leonie

Movie - A Trap

Ss fe16 a trap icon.png

Byleth is seen chasing the recently bested Kronya through the woods. Eventually, the latter trips down and rolls over the ground before briefly assuming a combat posture in the middle of some ruins.

Kronya: But how? How could I really lose...to a lowly creature like you?

Kronya is shocked over her defeat. Just then...
Solon: Well.

Kronya notices Solon is standing behind her.
Kronya: Solon! Don't just stand there and stare! I need your help!
Solon: Yes. You most certainly do.

Solon complies and slowly advances, but towards Kronya instead...?
Kronya: Huh?

Solon quickly grabs Kronya's neck and slowly drags her body to the middle of the ruins as she struggles.
While this happens, Solon is methodically inserting his hand inside her chest, looking to rip out something...?

Solon: Have no fear, Kronya.
Solon: Your sacrifice will help to rid of this world of the filthy vermin that have long infested it.

As he says this, crunching sounds can be heard from Kronya's body as she recoils in agony.
Dark magic begins oozing out of the ruins. Byleth, who had been on the defensive during this time is caught off guard and is quickly incapacitated by shadowy tentacles coming from the ruins.

Kronya: Solon... Stop this!
Solon ignores his ally's pleas. Just then, he seems to have found what he was looking for...

Solon: The time has finally come...

Solon rips out a spheric object from Kronya's body, which he raises into the sky.

Solon: to unleash the Forbidden Spell of Zahras upon our enemies!

Solon crushes the sphere, summoning a vortex of dark magic just as he lets Kronya fall into the ground.

Barely able to move, Kronya attempts to reach for Byleth.
Kronya: Please...help me...

The dark vortex of dark magic engulfs Kronya. Then, it eventually reaches Byleth as well.
The darkness then disappears, Solon is seen standing alone. Smirking.

Solon: Begone with you...Fell Star.

Event - The Missing Professor

(Byleth's students reach to confront Solon.)
Dimitri: What was that sorcery? What happened to our professor?!
Solon: They were swallowed by the mystical darkness of the forbidden spell. An eternity wandering in a void of darkness, never to return to this world...
Solon: To think we almost had the Sword of the Creator...
Annette: That's a lie! There's no way the professor is really dead!
Flayn: That's right! Our professor is no ordinary human!
Dedue: I do not believe our professor has fallen.
Solon: It is possible that death has yet to find your friend. But there are worse things than death. Drifting through the darkness with no chance to escape... Overwhelmed with hopelessness... It must be torturous.
Dedue: We cannot abandon hope, Your Highness. Our professor lives. I know it.
Dimitri: You're right. We will save the professor. But first, let's destroy this fiend! I'll slice you into a thousand pieces as you watch with horror... You will know true pain before I finally allow you to die!
Solon: How trite. But if you wish for pain, I shall oblige. If you prefer it so, you shall also be added to the ranks of the dead!

Event - Sothis: The Beginning

???

Byleth: ...
(Byleth finds themselves surrounded in nothing but darkness.)
(Just then, someone teleports in front of them, throne and all...)
Sothis: You fool!
Sothis: What were you thinking, charging right into an enemy's trap? Are you just a boulder that rolls down whatever hill it's on? No, even a boulder has more sense!

Choice 1 Choice 2
I'm sorry. I can explain...
Sothis: Apologizing won't make things right! This darkness is terrifying! Sothis: Excuses won't help us! This darkness is terrifying!

Sothis: As you and I are one... I, too, am trapped within this void. But please consider this...
Sothis: This realm of darkness we are in is separate from the world from which you came. I mean that it would take a god to leave this place. In time, our hearts and minds will cease to be. Are you prepared to die?

Choice 1 Choice 2
I am. I am not.
Sothis: How very brave of you, to joke at times like these... Sothis: I thought as much. I also do not wish to die. And yet...

Sothis: There is no other choice...

What choice?

Sothis: Do you recall your father's diary? He said you were a child who never cried nor laughed. I think I am the one to blame. I must have been asleep, but even then, I feel I was a part of you.
Sothis: I do not know how Rhea managed it, but she allowed me to exist inside of you. The truth is I have always been with you. It is within you that I found my power yet again.
Sothis: The power of a goddess. The power of the progenitor god.
Byleth: ...
(Byleth is shaken by Sothis' words.)
Sothis: My name is Sothis. By now you must be well aware of what that means. I am the one who watches over Fódlan and the creatures dwelling there. I am Sothis, she who died then returned.

Choice 1 Choice 2
I can't believe it. Somehow, I know it to be true.

Sothis: There is only one thing left to do to save us from this darkness of eternity. I must now use the power of a god. However, I lack a body of my own. And so, I must relinquish all the power that I have...to you.
Sothis: The time has come for you and I to join as one. And when that comes to pass…then I shall disappear.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Disappear?! I won't allow it.

Sothis: When I say disappear, I do not mean that all I am will be no more.
Sothis: My soul will join with yours, and you and I will never be apart. But...I will no longer have a chance to speak with you. I shall miss it. So long have I been on this path with you. Through you, I got to see and hear this world. I even got to chastise you from time to time. I may not have acted like a goddess, but...it was certainly fun.
Sothis: For all that you have done... Thank you. I'm glad that it was you to whom my fate was bound.

Thank you...for everything.

Sothis: Now... We must pray. For if we share this wish, our spirits two will join as one...
Sothis: Your wish...is to return to the forest, stop the enemy, and rescue the little ones. No need for words. I know your heart as though it were my own...

Movie - Awakening

Ss fe16 awakening fbyleth icon.png

Sothis stands up from her throne, and slowly waks down the stairs towards Byleth.

Sothis: Your will and mine are now as one. Both sides of time are revealed to you, and you alone.

Sothis has reached Byleth, now standing in front of them.

Sothis: You know I am the beginning. What shall you do?

The throne behind Sothis turns into golden lights that come down and surround her and Byleth.
As the light makes both float, Byleth reaches out their hand as Sothis extends her own.
Once their hands touch, Sothis vanishes into Byleth with the golden light.
A moment of silence happens.

Then, magical energy surges through Byleth's body, making their hair and eyes change color to light green. Their sword's hole begins glowing red.
Byleth takes the sword, yells, and thrusts the sword into the void as they cut it.
Menwhile, in the Sealed Forest, a glowing fissue appears in the air...
Solon watches, fearful...

Solon: So the Fell Star consumes even the darkness itself...

Byleth jumps through the fissure and stands up on the ruins once more. It's the sunset.

Byleth has Returned from the Darkness

Dimitri: Professor... That is you, isn't it? I am glad you are safe. I was sure that you would return. Please tell me all that happened to you later. For now, it's imperative that we kill the demon!

(From afar, Solon can be seen visibly shaken and terrified.)
Solon: What did you see in the darkness of Zahras? This should be impossible. The only being that can withstand that darkness is...
Solon: Unless I dispose of you myself, I may never have the chance to send you back there!
(Multiple enemy reinforcements teleport near Byleth and their class.)

Boss - Solon

Vs Anyone:

I have no time to waste on the likes of you...
— Solon Vs Anyone

Vs Byleth:

I am terrified by you... Even though an emotion like fear has no place inside me. That means you must be eliminated.
— Solon Vs Byleth

Defeat Quote:

To think...that I would lose to mere beasts.
— Solon's defeat quote

Solon has been Vanquished

Solon: But this is not the end... Thales will carry out our mission, somehow...
(Solon collapses. He has drawn his last breath.)

Dimitri: Thales... Does he also serve the Flame Emperor? It can't be...

Event - Transformation

Dimitri: Professor... I'm glad you're OK. And you seem relatively unscathed. I'm...I'm so relieved. What's more, Jeralt's foe is dead. Though we took little satisfaction from it.
Dimitri: Professor... I must ask. What happened after we were separated? You look...different.

The goddess gifted me her power.

Dimitri: The goddess appeared...and gave you her power? It's as though...the legend of old has been made flesh. It's hard to grasp, in all honesty. But having seen you pierce the sky with my own eyes, I find myself unable to doubt it.

A legend of old?

Dimitri: Yes. The legend of Saint Seiros. It is said that she received a divine revelation from the goddess and was gifted with her power. Long ago, the goddess dispatched Seiros to defeat an evil king who went mad with power. Perhaps the goddess saw the goodness of Seiros within you too, and wished to help you in your quest to defeat evil.
Dimitri: Hm. If you're Seiros, granted power by the goddess, then I suppose that makes me... Ah, never mind. I'm getting carried away. (Just then, Byleth faints.)

Cg fe16 byleth lying in the grass f.png

Dimitri: Professor! What's wrong?! Are you...uh... Are you asleep? What is happening these days? Well, it matters not. We must get you help, and fast.

If Byleth is Male. If Byleth is Female.

Dimitri: It'll be faster if I carry you and run.

Event - Report: Guardian Moon

(Byleth rests. the screen is black.)
(Rhea's singing voice can be heard...)

Rhea: ♪ In time's flow...see the glow of flames ever burning bright... ♪

Rhea: ♪ On the swift river's drift, broken memories alight... ♪

(Byleth opens their eyes. Their head is sitting over Rhea's lap.)

Cg fe16 rhea sings to byleth.png

Rhea: Professor. You must remain still.

Choice 1 Choice 2
Where am I? What happened?

Rhea: Everything is all right. There is no need to worry. Those who are trying to harm you are far away.
Rhea: ♪ Mmm... Mmm... Mmm... ♪
Rhea: ...How lovely...it would be for this moment to last forever...
Rhea: I wish I could hold on to this time we have stolen... that you and I could create a world without end...
Rhea: I have heard whispers of what happened to you. Your appearance... You have received power from the goddess. From the moment you took hold of the Sword of the Creator... I prayed that one day the radiant power of Sothis, which bathes Fódlan in its celestial light, might reside within you.
Rhea: But you are so much more than the light. You are my...
(Suddenly, Rhea goes silent for a few moments.)

Rhea: Close your eyes, dear one. Sleep, just a while longer. I will be watching over you, always.
Rhea: Always and forever...
