Chapter 9

Eirika chooses to travel by sea to the theocracy of Rausten. Her search for a ship leads her to Port Kiris in Carcino. Carcino is a young nation ruled by a council of merchants, and it is an ally of Frelia. Carcino council leader Klimt, a staunch opponent of Grado's imperialistic actions, has pledged Carcino's support to Frelia in this conflict. Prince Innes also intends to pass through Carcino on his way to Jehanna. Eirika believes there is nothing to fear in Carcino, but she is wrong.


Distant Blade is Chapter 9 of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones if you choose Eirika's route. This is the first chapter you can get Amelia, and see a future character like Rennac who comes later in the game. This is also the first chapter you can use Tana to fight. You get your first Ocean Seal, an item used to promote thieves and Pirates. You get your second Rapier here as well, which can only be used by Eirika.

Try to recruit Amelia as soon as possible as Amelia will retreat at turn ??. She will appear again at chapter 12/13 if i am not wrong, as a level 4 recruit.
