Walhart

Useless husks! Do you bend the knee to me already? Pah! I've no use for blind obedience. I need you to face me! I was driven off the path to conquest, and only blood will see me returned to it. Only HIS blood!
— Walhart

Irreconcilable Paths is the nineteenth paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. As a paralogue chapter, its events are not integral to the game's main storyline and can be done at the player's leisure. It is one of a group often called the "SpotPass paralogues", as the chapter is unlocked via a SpotPass interaction and also requires beating chapter 25 in order to play. This chapter is unlockable via SpotPass starting May 17, 2012 in the Japanese version, February 28, 2013 in the North American version, and May 16-17, 2013 in the PAL version.

In this chapter, the Shepherds must fight off very strong Risen in a very remote area of Valm. These Risen, however, aren't commanded by one you'd think would be commanding Risen.

Plot

Main article: Irreconcilable Paths/Script

In a rainy field, the Shepherds notice a large group of Risen. Lucina feels a dark power emanating from them and comments that the Risen may be too far from any villages to threaten them, but Chrom resolves to fight them.

As the battle begins, the Risen act obediently to Walhart, and he soliloquizes that he has lost his way, and must fight Chrom to find it again. If Chrom fights Walhart, Chrom attempts to dissuade Walhart from fighting and join his cause, but Walhart is set of fighting Chrom; Walhart states that if Chrom can defeat him, he may join Chrom's cause.

After the battle, if Chrom fought Walhart, Walhart asks him how he won, and Chrom states that he fights with the strength of his friends and allies while Walhart fights alone. Walhart decides to follow Chrom "to see just how far [his] kingly path can lead [him]". Regardless of if Chrom fought Walhart, Frederick informs Chrom that they are ready to leave; Chrom comments on his jealousy of Walhart and his confidence in his way, but Frederick assures Chrom that people like Walhart lead simple paths, but Chrom's doubts and corrections allow him to lead a truer one. The Shepherds then depart.

Website summary

The Risen are monsters devoid of souls, seemingly owing allegiance to no one.

There is one place, however, where even the Risen bend their knees to a single man and serve as his loyal soldiers. One man who is master of the Risen…[1]

Note: The returning characters list only those recruited by the time this chapter is unlocked. As a paralogue chapter, there is no set timeframe in which the chapter must be taken on; thus, it is possible to have recruited more characters than the above by the point the chapter is started. The returning characters list also does not include any characters recruitable in other paralogues, as the player may not have taken on any other available paralogue chapters yet. The list also does not include any bonus units, as they are recruitable at the player's discretion.

Trivia

  • This is the only chapter in the vanilla Awakening game that includes generic Risen where the boss isn't a Risen Chief. (A non-Risen boss commanding Risen is the scenario of chapter 22, but the Risen in that chapter aren't generic.)
