— Hector

Whereabouts Unknown (Japanese: 謎の行方 Mysterious Whereabouts) is the sixteenth chapter of Eliwood's Tale and the seventeenth chapter of Hector's Tale in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. To play the following sidequest, at least one NPC Soldier must survive this chapter.

Plot

Main articles: Whereabouts Unknown/Script (Eliwood) and Whereabouts Unknown/Script (Hector)

Hector, Eliwood, and Lyn have fought their way through Bauker's forces and are able to enter Castle Caelin. Eliwood notes that the castle's guard is strangely absent; Lyn states that those still alive are likely being kept as prisoners. The trio then commences the battle with the hope of saving Lord Hausen and the imprisoned soldiers. If Chapter 13x was not played, Merlinus introduces himself to the group; after hearing Merlinus's heartfelt desire to work for a noble house, Hector hires him. Once the battle starts, Raven, imprisoned along with Lucius and Caelin's castle guard, demands that the guard allow him to fight on Laus's side, which the guard eventually allows.

As the battle continues, the imprisoned soldiers reveal they hid keys and weapons in the cell before they were thrown in. Lucius declines the chance to fight alongside the soldiers, as he wants to wait for Raven to retrieve him. Priscilla may recognize Raven as her long-lost brother, Raymond, and convince him to fight for Caelin; Raven may then return to Lucius and inform him that he is now fighting against Laus—for the long-term benefit of getting closer to Hector for his revenge—and Lucius joins him.

After seizing the castle back from Laus, the three lords begin to search for Marquess Caelin. Leila approaches the group and reveals that she has been treating the marquess's wounds in a secluded room. Leila is an Ostian spy who has been investigating Elbert's disappearance by working undercover in the Black Fang; she explains that the Black Fang originally targeted nobles of Bern who abused their power, but in the past year, their leader—Brendan Reed—remarried and they have started to target anyone they are paid to kill. Leila also informs the group that Elbert is alive and is currently at the Dragon's Gate on Valor, commonly known as "the Dread Isle",. After Leila finishes her report, she sets off to regroup with the Black Fang and complete her mission. Eliwood, now with the knowledge of his father's whereabouts, sets out for Valor accompanied by Lyn and Hector.

If Matthew is alive, he and Leila briefly meet; he invites her to visit his hometown and meet his parents once they've finally freed Lord Elbert, but leaves before she can respond. If at least one of the Caelin soldiers survived, they stop Lyn before she can leave; she asks that they protect her grandfather, and they give her an item they retrieved from the vault before it was ransacked.

Strategy

Hannah's Augury

Price: Is gba gold.png50
Intro: Heh heh heh... So, you seek insight into your next battle?
Augury: The skills of a thief will serve you well. Oh, and there will be a meeting... Take the polite girl, the flame-haired beauty. And again, take your rapier and hammer. That...is all I see.

Right from the get-go, you'll need to move your units up with a sense of urgency. On turn 9, the soldiers of Caelin will begin moving out and risk getting killed by Raven (or possibly killing him on lower difficulties). If all of them get killed, you cannot access the sidequest chapter, and thus cannot recruit Canas. If you wish to recruit Raven with Priscilla, be sure you have units that can both move far and keep her safe, as well as some healing in case she takes a ranged attack. Raven will attack and kill Priscilla if she is within range.

One may consider allowing only one green unit to survive to get a free mine and perform the special enemy control glitch later.

Trivia

  • Lyn, Sain, Wil, Florina, and Kent can have conversations with the soldiers once they are rescued.
