How pathetic. Do you think me so easy to conquer? Onward! Destroy the Hoshidan army!
— Xander

Crown Prince Xander (Japanese: 暗夜第一王子 マークス Dark Night First Prince Marks) is the eleven chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors. During this chapter, the group is able to meet up with Xander and help him fight against the invading Hoshidan forces.


Main article: Crown Prince Xander/Script

Xander asks his troops if any of them were able to locate his siblings, with one saying they heard a report of Corrin being seen with a Hoshidan soldier. Xander orders more troops be sent to that area while the rest of them prepare against the invading Hoshidan army. Nearby, Darios leads the group to where Xander was reportedly located, and Elise is able to spot him leading the Nohrian army. Leo recognizes that Xander is about to lead an offensive, so Lianna orders the group to go help him.

Not long into the battle, some Hoshidan Sky Knights try to attack Xander from behind, only for him to swat them out of the air. The Nohrian siblings are able to reach their oldest brother, with Elise expressing her relief in seeing him. Xander, while relieved to see his siblings, tells them they need to defeat the Hoshidans first. They and their allies are then able to drive back their enemy, reclaiming all the forts in the process.

After the battle, Xander thanks Lianna and Darios for reuniting him with his siblings, but explains they must now search for Corrin. Darios suggests they can help him search for her after they regroup with Rowan and his team. Upon hearing that, Xander requests that they take Camilla, Leo, and Elise with them so they learn more about Aytolis as well as search for Corrin. Elise asks what Xander plans to do, with him replying he'll take the Nohrian army and continue his own search for their sister. As the party regroups, Lissa expresses her joy in being able to stay with Elise, while Camilla implies what she'll do to any Hoshidans they encounter, which terrifies Owain. Darios comments on how lively things will be once they group up with the others, to which Lianna agrees.


With Leo added to their ranks, Lianna's group arrives at a fortress that towers above the fog. It's there they find Xander squaring off against a Hoshidan army.

  • Despite having it in the cutscene prior, Xander is oddly not equipped with his personal sword Siegfried. Instead he is wielding an Iron Sword.
