In this map, Byleth and their army retake the Great Bridge of Myrddin from the Adrestian Empire.

Note: In Silver Snow, the blue deployment slot with the General icon is unusable.

Acheron only needs to be defeated if he appears; it is possible to defeat the other three bosses before he arrives, thus clearing the mission without defeating Acheron.

Trivia

  • Unused data of a battle quote between Claude and an enemy Lorenz suggests the latter was planned to potentially leave the party in the Verdant Wind route and be fought here, as he is in Silver Snow and Azure Moon.[1][2]
    • Similarly, both used and unused data within the Silver Snow route suggests Ferdinand was considered to potentially defect in the route if he had previously fallen in battle during Part I in Classic Mode and be fought here as well.
