  1. I don't really think they will give Rhea the sword, most likely it will be reserve for another Seiros alt. Since Sword of Seiros is mostly associated with Seiros rather than Rhea, even 3H datamine shows Rhea(Archbishop) being more magic while Seiros(Saint) more physical And maybe they will eventually also do "fallen" Rhea from Silver Snow* (I found common term "fallen" Rhea for SS kind ironic comparing to CF ending for story reason, maybe berserk Rhea is a better term here) -------- Also, I think Serios MGB is a reference to Red Canyon massacre, since most enemies are dragons.
  2. Actually it's quite common in navies, most navies have midshipman or similar ranks (naval officer students who haven't receiving their commission) on actual combat vessels both in peace time and in war. Since you can't learn sailing in a classroom. And unlike armies, navies still have to fight pirates, privateer or enforce blockades regularly even during peace time. Historically, quite a few midshipman were killed in combat, and also many were awarded for bravery. For US Army, MS-3 cadets (equal to junior year in college) could be assigned to a real platoon one month at a time to get them experience leading real unit. They are very unlikely to see combat since most units are stateside or in Europe, except those who assigned to Korea. But theoretically they are assigned to real combat units.
  3. This, In fact only church character religious in the traditional sense would be Gilbert, everyone else, including most senior knights (Captain Jeralt and Catherine) outright stated they don't believe in the practice. Seteth and Flayn obviously knowing the deeper knowledge different from the doctrine Cyril actually said Rhea told him it's ok not to believe in CoS doctrine. Rhea cares really only about if they will carry out their duty, rather than if they believe in the religion. The game also stated at least twice that deploy students into combat requires direct approval from Rhea herself, obviously Byleth often work around this by pretending field studies or other excuses in paralogues.
  4. Considering you seem to be still very early in the game, maybe at least finish two opposing paths first? A number of the issues here would be resolved once you experienced perspectives from different characters.
  5. Just curious, from a leader's (Rhea) perspective what's wrong about executing a group of accused assassins against you? Especially they were accused to be working with Lornato, who was just saying he's goal was to kill you. It's actually a much bigger conspiracy behind that event but I won't spoil for you, which you probably have to play multiple route to find out. just wondering what you think about it first.
  6. Consider my earlier posts, it's possible that "Nabatean Civilization" in the ancient time included Foldalian, if not the majority of their citizens. Since the game implied there were only dozens of Nabateans before the war broke out (including those buried in Holy Tombs, and rumored in other lands), I highly doubt they could build massive cities and called a civilization with just dozen people. We saw large number of citizens in Sothis' flashback, most of them were probably Fodlanians On the other hand, if Nabateans were numbered in tens of thousands, that Agarthan or later Nemesis would stood any chance opposing them. As for lore, maybe InISys has grander plan for future related titles, so they intentionally left out some lore details. In interview they did mention some lore questions could not be answered yet.
  7. Just wondering, how do we know the story passed down by House Hraelverg were actually accurate? Edelgard never told us the detail of what exactly was passed on, just her interpretation of it. Unless it was recited in verbatim, how could a complex verbal story maintain accuracy over 1000 years?
  8. From DLC we know that Agarthans are consider separated race from Nabatean and Fodlanian. And from City Without Light Considering a few other factors: - We never know any Agarthan sire a children with Nabtean or Fodlanian - No Agarthan carries a Fodlan Crest or use relics. They have their own unique crest system that's not explained in the game - No Agarthan ever changed into demonic beast - Fodlanian, when exposed to crest stone, could change into demonic beasts. I think the most likely conclusion is that Fodlanian were creation of Sothis, thus share similar heritage with Nabateans. While Agarthans were completely different "specie" in terms of genetic. This reminds me of JRR Tolkien's Simarillaion, where Iluvatar created both elf and man, both known as Children of Iluvatar. While Dwarf was created by Aulë in a completely separated attempt and shares no blood connection with Children of Iluvatar
  9. Yet, there wasn't even a named enemy character in BotW besides Master Kohga, who wasn't born in AoC era, yet they made the era into a Warrior game without an issue. Ganon might not even be playable in history mode since he's not corporeal. Only really solid characters we have are 5 champions and Zelda, and none on the enemy sides. We also already getting OC characters like the Eggbot Guardian. (I wouldn't consider Impa or Purah solid characters since they only have few lines and never show carrying weapons in BotW, but they are likely playable with unique moves) In that sense, Nemesis War would already have more characters to use, especially if we counted Agarthans, and almost certain Emperor Wilhelm,. As for OC character, likely ancestor of each crest carrying Black Eagle except Dorothea, and they were probably lieutenants to each Saints. Wouldn't the historical vagueness an equal argument against Zelda? Zelda games is famously known to be vague about events outside the games. I remember hearing exactly same argument before against having a BotW prequel, but here we are...
  10. 1. Not all cardinals transformed, there are a few human cardinals during Silver Snow the final battle, all of them regardless if transformed, had minor crests. 2. There is no instance in the game someone changed their crest size in any circumstance, especially making crest smaller, so we can assume they were minor crest to begin with. 3. Aelfric, a cardinal can be viewed both as allied and enemy human prior to final battle in DLC, he had minor crests. https://fireemblem.fandom.com/wiki/Aelfric#In-Game
  11. Unless you can use both character in the same time same weapon separately rather than pair up, I guess it is still justifiable as Zelda "loaned" it to Link... It's also possible you are limited with canon weapon in the story mode, but can freely choose in free/adventure/historical mode.
  12. I think you were confused with my comment, I was referring to "Nemesis War" (aka War of Heroes) 1000 years ago, rather than current era. Correct me if I was wrong, but wasn't the 5 years war mostly a stalemate before Byleth showed up? Also different path featured very different grand situations. Most combat were fairly small skirmishes between pro and anti imperial houses in Kingdom and Alliance, it also seem that Ferdinand was leading some kind resistance movement, but none of the major battles yet. IMO, Nemesis War is a much better topic - It features massive battles over 50 years, in fact opening cutscene suggests each Nabatean and Elites could easily matches hundreds of regular human soldiers, a perfect fit for a Warrior game. - It could cover many lore lose ends from Three Houses, such as nature about Sothis and Agarthan, or truth about Empire and Church. - Some mechanism poorly fit into traditional FE, such as Nabatean and Demonic transformation would be perfect in a Warrior game since there is no balancing or pathfinding issue. Like we could actually control Rhea, Seteth, Flayn and their dragon forms. - There are quite a few named characters already available for the era: 5 Saints, 4 Apostles, Emperor Wilhelm, Emperor Lycaon; Nemesis, 11 Elites, Agarthans. There could be a few more OC characters from the Empire, Church and TWISTD - Dev does hints possible prequel in interview, like how Rhea's reasoning was not to be known yet. I don't see where in the trailer indicating there were more than one? Link's Slate in BoTW was exactly same one carried by Zelda, that's why it has all her pictures stored, for the memories quests. When Link fell in battle, Zelda likely ordered surviving soldiers to seal Link and the Slate away together, hoping he could use it to unlock the powers when he returns.
  13. They all carry minor crest though, Jeralt is the only human with major Serios crest in the current time, making him very unique.
  14. I think it would be better written if later Agarthan revealed to have ability to counter Divine Pulse, making Byleth unable to change this event and chapter 12. Original script calls that Edelgard and Nemesis could counter this ability, (implied it's why Agarthan so interesting in this crest) but it was not adopt into the final game.
  15. I wonder if they are going to do the same with Three Houses later, considering it would fit into exactly mode de operandi: A cross over warrior game focused on ancient events covering between Assassination of Sothis, massacre of Red Canyon, Nemesis War finally to foundation of Empire and Church.
  16. Oh, I understand well the "transfusion story", so that wasn't my question. My question is if Jeralt is the only human with Major Crest, and if so, why Rhea only favored him over numerous humans that served her in the ages (like the guy op mentioned) We could also call into the question if the story was even the truth, considering Rhea is probably the best sword fighter in all Fodlan history, did she really need saving from some random bandits to begin with? Maybe even this story was heavily alter from the actual event, especially this was part of C support before Rhea and Byleth trusted each other. Byleth also never confirm the story with Jeralt. (Jeralt did admit he received blood from Rhea to Alois when he was drunk)
  17. Jeralt did mention about ancient great battles in the opening chapter, but most likely he's talking about War of Eagle and Lion rather than Nemesis War. I think he more likely below 300 years old, but there is no definitive evidence in the game about Jeralt's true age. Overall, we simply don't know enough about him, besides his true age, other important questions like - Was Jeralt Reus Eisner even his real name, or just another alter ego like Rhea to Seiros? - How did he assume knight commander for over 100 years without being exposed? He certainly has to meet more outsider than Rhea did. Did he faked his death often just like Rhea? - Was he the only one of his kind? Are there others like him holding major crest of Seiros? If he's the one and only, why did Rhea pick him among all who fought for her over 1000 years? - How much he knows about secret of Rhea? How much he knows about the "plan"? I don't believe that he never noticed his wife Sitir's unique appearance and pointy ears sharing with Rhea. Flyan also mentioned green hair and eyes are unique among Nabatean, making the connection even more obvious.
  18. Wait, since when Ordelia was opposing the church? Wasn't them opposing the empire during Hrym rebellion and was crushed then experiment on as result? I don't remember they were mentioned to be against church, it's why Lysithea fits well in both side of conflict.
  19. Interesting Rhea FByleth is named Fell Star Duo, at first I thought it's another Sothis' alt (I don't think Rhea was ever referred to as Fell Star in the game, only Sothis)
  20. Also another difference is that Rhea became very protective of Byleth if you sided with her, to the point she's willing to die for Byleth If you side against her in CF she lost her mind though Hubert's personality is pretty much the same regardless which route you choose
  21. Only thing we were told about was from Rhea's theory: But turned out that Rhea was wrong, and it was implied such ritual was never attempted before. And even using Rhea's words, what does "become one with the power contained within" even means? It could be interpret very differently depends on circumstance 1. Sothis overwrites Byleth's personality, which basically means de facto death of Byleth 2. Sothis and Byleth's memory, personality and conscious fused into one, they became one but neither Sothis or Byleth thereafter The way Sothis explained it to Byleth, and that she no longer speaks to them, makes theory 2 sounds closer to the truth IMO. If their conscious fused into one, of course that Byleth no longer hearing Sothis. As for personality, in the following chapters player could choose options that suggesting they have a change in personality post fusion. The only problem here is memory, we didn't gain any new memory from Sothis' side for player to recall after fusion.
  22. My theory is that this map was originally not a final map, but a regular field battle, they later reused it as Verdant Wind finale. But decided to keep the chests I agree, Rhea should be a playable unit in this level and the next one. Making the stake much higher. There is no lore or gameplay reason not able to. In chapter 12 you were supposedly to protect her, but since she's so far back on the top of map guarded by lots of knights, enemy almost never even able to get close, making this objective pretty much meaningless. In fact I think every level Rhea that was present should be playable, including Ashe's paralouge and Shambhala, again, no lore reason not able to, and can flash out some of her arc more. As for me, I don't really like lava maps in any FE title. Especially if your force has lots of armor rather than flyers.
  23. Problem is that everyone actually know he was the one and same Jeralt that lead the Knights. And Leonie knew very well who he was, or she would just think it's a random strong mercenary they hired.
  24. My thought was, if there were others like Jeralt and Wilhelm, they would probably quite well known in history considering their superhuman abilities. While church might have purged some history to censor these individuals, it would be hard to completely erase stories like folklore. Or that after Empire turned against Church, they would keep their own record. As for reinstatement, I found it interesting Rhea gave him commander post back, and basically fired the previous commander by forcing him to retirement. We are told there are several levels of knights, including higher level like Holy Knights, yet Rhea just give him the command rather than other position. Rhea must trusts him very much, since as a commander Jeralt wields the whole military force of the Church. Jeralt could theoretically start a rebellion against Rhea or at least sabotage the knights (like by giving away military secrets) if he wish to. I think Jeralt was the primary suspect in the fire. Not only Seteth, but Tomas also accused him "disappeared" right after fire. Rhea must at least heard about the rumors. It would be hard to conceal Rhea's secrets from Jeralts though, since Jeralt commands the whole knighthood. He also runs the general security of the monastery, that means he would have deep inside knowledge in personals movement, events that happened, rumors and keep daily records. Rhea is also guarded by knights almost 24/7 according to her "notes". Since she doesn't like it, they are probably not some special personal guards that she confides secret with. It seems to me it would be very hard to secretly moving people and material for rituals, or conducting experiments without Jeralt knowing over 100 years span. For example, when Sitri was first added into Monastery, Jeralt would likely very soon notice a new child has been taken into their care due to him being the security commander.
