But know this for now... Veronica is not our enemy. The true villain is Bruno.
— Zacharias, in a letter to Alfonse

Blazing Shadows (Japanese: 烈火の暗影 Blazing Shadows) is the third available paralogue chapter of Fire Emblem Heroes. In this chapter, the Order of Heroes return to the World of Blazing, where a number of new Heroes have been forced into a contract with the Emblian Empire.

This chapter was added to the game as part of an update released on March 14th, 2017, alongside its featured characters, and a number of related quests, which were available until the Spring Festival update was released on March 30th.

Plot

Main article: Blazing Shadows/Script

The Mysterious Man returns to the World of Blazing, where he comes into possession of the tome of Bramimond of the Eight Legends. In this tome, he reads a passage on a "wicked god" which, despite having perished, lived on through the bloodline of the royal family of Embla, unknown to them. Powerless to resist the wicked god's influence, several generations of Emblian royals had become mere puppets of the god. The tome lists various epithets of the god—"Devourer of Royals, Ruin Borne upon Wings, The Original Demon"—but, frustratingly for its reader, stops short of revealing the god's true name. The Mysterious Man remarks that the Dragon's Gate on the isle of Valor, acts as a gate to other worlds, and so certain inhabitants of the World of Blazing may also have witnessed the events in Embla. He sets off once more to continue hs search.

Elsewhere in the World of Blazing, a number of Heroes have fallen under the control of Embla, forcing the Order of Heroes into action once more. First, they face the mercenary Raven, his retainer Lucius, and sister Priscilla. According to the contract, if Raven fights off the Order, Embla will give him the power he needs to take his "revenge". Lucius pleads with him to reconsider, but Raven refuses. The Order defeats him, and he leaves, vowing to one day get his revenge.

The next group faced by the Order includes Ninian, Rebecca, and the Sword Demon, Karel. Rebecca is hopeful that the Order will be strong enough to break the contract, while Karel simply wishes to fight, and win. They are defeated, and Ninian thanks the Order for freeing them.

The final group includes two members of the Black Fang—the young mage Nino, and the feared Angel of Death, Jaffar. Jaffar vows to defend Nino, by eliminating their enemies, despite Nino's pleas to reach a peaceful arrangement. The battle is again won by the Order, freeing the two from Embla's grasp.

After the battle, the Order prepares to return to Askr, but before they can depart, Nino follows them, and gives Alfonse a letter from his missing friend, Zacharias. In the letter, Zacharias explains that he happened upon a secret regarding the Emblian royal family, and that he had to depart in secret to learn more. Though his investigation is ongoing, he has a message for Alfonse: Veronica is not the true villain, but rather an individual named Bruno—a relatively unknown prince of Embla, according to Anna. Anna comments that Zacharias would be the best suited among the Order to infiltrate Embla, and regrets that he left without telling anyone, but assumes that he must have had good reason not to do so. Alfonse worries about what has become of Zacharias since he sent the letter, but is now more hopeful than before that Zacharias will return eventually.

Trivia

  • Each map of this chapter is based on the map of a chapter in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade:
  • This chapter is the first Heroes paralogue to include non-generic characters other than ones introduced to the game alongside the chapter, in this case Raven and Nino (both of which were in the game at its initial launch); it would be the only one until seventeen months and twenty paralogues later.
