So recently we now have the Valentian Accordion reveal the details of the lore and the full story of the Valentian Revelations. And boy is it a doozy. However, this particular part of the Revelations is where I feel holds incredible potential for controversy: The arguments that I have encountered is that this is strictly for the Valentian Falchion only. However, the Valentian Falchion and the Archanean Falchion are both still the same type of weapon. Ultimately, they are weapons meant for humans to have the ability to defend themselves against the dragons. In that case, would that not mean the Archanean Falchion is the same? Blood of a Divine Dragon and a Brand? Of course, everyone knows that Anri, the first user of the Archanean Falchion, and his indirect descendant Marth, have no mentioned Brand, nor Divine Dragon Blood. However, Marth has been implied connection with someone that does have Divine Dragon Blood. In Tiki's B support with Male Robin, she mentions this: Tiki mentions that Chrom resembles a man 1000 years before Marth. Except there's only ONE character that can fit that description 1000 years before Marth, and that man is Sigurd. Sigurd also has a son, Seliph, who has Major Baldr Blood as well as Minor Naga Blood. Given that Genealogy and Shadow Dragon have a 1000 year gap, the assumption is clearly made that one of Seliph's descendants could have gone to Archanea. It's used and before its fun, but it isn't anything conclusive. But now this new information about Falchion opens up a whole can of worms. If the Archanean Falchion functions the same way as the Valentian Falchion, requiring the blood of a Divine Dragon and a Brand, that would mean that Seliph's descendants, and possibly Julia's, would need to actually create a Major Bloodline for Naga likely, and that somehow got to Anri and Marcelus. Anri could wield Falchion, but Marcelus had to also possess the trait, as otherwise, Marth would never get that trait. This is where I believe the potential possibility of a new remake can take place, where we can have a new remake of the Archanea series, as well as the a remake of the Jugdral series. The latter can possibly open the possibility of Seliph's descendants heading to Archanea, and the Archanea remake can possibly reveal to have a retcon that Marth and Anri do have the Brands. Some would argue that this undermines the feats they have done, since Anri was this mere peasant and rose to greatness. Personally, I don't think so, since Holy Blood by itself has nothing truly special until they get a Holy Weapon. So Anri's journey through Anri's Way, being a desert, a volcano, and a mountain, is still all Anri in the end. And Marth only ever gets Falchion at the endgame mostly, so his feats are still well earned and not dictated by any Holy Blood. So what do you guys think? You think the remake will happen and there will be retcons made for the series to fit the new lores being added into it?
I am sure many of us (if not all of us) are familiar with Marth and how Shadow Dragon and its sequel, to an extent, (note, by Shadow Dragon, I mean both the original and the remake) had a rather minimalist plot. That being said, we know that Marth's indirect ancestor, Anri, defeated Medeus and the Dohlr Empire 100 years before the events of Shadow Dragon, and we know of some other characters who were around at that time, including the following: Anri's brother Marcelus, Cartas who became king of Archanea, Cartas' brother Marlon who became king of Aurelis, Ordwin: a soldier who founded the kingdom of Grust, and Iote: slave-turned-rebel against the Dohlr Empire who would become the first king of Macedon. With this and what little was revealed about each of these characters in mind, I had an idea for a Fire Emblem game that took place 100 years before the story of Marth. The story would follow three protagonists down their initially separate routes: Anri, Iote, and Cartas, and all three would have unique classes: Anri would be the typical swordsman lord (though a peasant; quite ironically), Iote would ride a wyvern (one idea I had was that he could dismount the wyvern and the wyvern could fight as a separate unit), and I hadn't decided in the case of Cartas; likely some form of cavalry unit. It would also feature the other listed characters as well as a young Wendell (and/or a young Wrys) as playable characters. The story would help answer a lot of questions left unanswered by the thin plot of Marth's games. What do you think?
