Oh, Fa– ...Father... ......
— Eliwood

New Resolve (Japanese: 新たなる決意 New Resolve) is chapter 20 of Eliwood's tale and chapter 21 of Hector's tale in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.


Main article: New Resolve/Script

Eliwood and the others are finally on their home stretch, having left the Dread Isle. Eliwood is still under incredible stress due to the death of his father.

At Badon, Lyn, Ninian, and Nils talk about the last time they were together, and Hector, who is also present, asks that the conversation be something he can actually follow, as he was not present when the trio first met. Lyn introduces Nils and Ninian to Hector. Lyn also acquaints Eliwood to Ninian and Nils, though Nils still remembers when Eliwood rescued Ninian from the Black Fang a year ago.

Nils mentions that Eliwood and Elbert are very similar in appearance and demeanor. Nils also clarifies that Elbert was the one that freed them from Nergal's clutches. Nils mentions that he sensed something dangerous, causing him to arrive at the Dragon's Gate just in time to prevent Ninian from summoning a dragon from the gate. Lyn apologizes to Ninian for bringing her right back to Nergal, though Ninian says Lyn did nothing wrong.

The conversation takes a more serious turn, as Nils begins to explain Nergal's ambitions and his source of power, quintessence. Nergal's current goal, and the motivation behind starting the Lycian rebellion plot, was to start a war to gather large amounts of quintessence from the deceased during the fighting. Nils mentions that Nergal lost interest in the war plot due to the exquisite quality of the quintessence belonging to Elbert and his squad of Pheraen knights. Nils continues recounting his time imprisoned with Elbert, Elbert was the only light in the dark for Ninian and Nils during their time in Nergal's captivity. Eliwood breaks down again at the conversation, and the others, sans Ninian, leave him some time alone. Eliwood and Ninian mourn their troubles together, but this is interrupted by Ninian sensing enemies nearby.

Outside, Lyn, Hector, and Nils are discussing the current status of Nergal. Lyn believes that the wound Nergal sustained from Elbert would be fatal, though Nils thinks otherwise, clarifying that Nergal's magic heals wounds quickly and prevents aging. Before Lyn can continue the conversation Nils has the same reaction as Ninian, and senses enemies nearby. Eliwood exits the nearby tavern and says he wants this fight over quickly. Preparations occurs at this point.

Nils sharing his power with Ninian.

At the start of the battle, Ninian attempts to leave the tavern and assist Eliwood. Nils tries to stop her but Ninian insists as she still feels responsible for Elbert's death. Nils relents and decides to allow Ninian to join the fight but not before transferring his power to her. Ninian leaves the tavern and finds Eliwood who is reluctant to allow her to fight. Ninian decides to demonstrate her dancing which convinces Eliwood to allow her to join the battle. Nothing particularly important happens during the fighting, and Oleg and the other Black Fang are routed. Eliwood begins determining their next course of action, as Nergal is still out there and after them. He comes to the conclusion that they should meet with Hector's other brother and the Marquess of Ostia, Uther. Hector is slightly worried about this, as he has neglected to send Uther correspondence during their travels to Valor. Eliwood lightens up for a moment, finding Hector's shenanigans uplifting.

Marcus takes Eliwood aside for a moment to mention he has contacted Eleanora about the death of her husband at his own discretion due to Eliwoods distress. Eliwood thanks Marcus for this. With convenient timing, Eleanora's guard, Isadora arrives to tell them that Eleanora has received word of Elbert's death. Isadora delivers the message "Obey your father's dying wish." and agrees to travel with Eliwood.

With a change of scene, Nergal, Sonia, and Limstella are shown back at the Dragon's Gate. Nergal is still recovering from the wound Elbert inflicted upon him and says that it will take time and more quintessence to heal. Nergal is still smoldering over his current state and, even though his assailant is dead, commands Sonia to mobilize the Four Fangs to kill Eliwood as "compensation." Nergal then commands Limstella to gather quintessence from whoever she believes to have the best, no matter who they are.

Hannah's Augury

Price: Is gba gold.png60
Intro: This place, it makes my bones ache... You need to care for your elders, not take them to horrible places! What's that? Speak up! Oh, yes... The augury.

Augury: This battle will be fought in darkness, so thieves are good. Torches or light-bringing staves are also good. Bow wielders... Archers or snipers should come along. Antitoxin...the Sleep staff. These are heartening items. I can tell you nothing more.
