Hidden Truths 1 (見えざる史実 • 前 Miezaru Shijitsu - Mae lit. Invisible Historical Fact - Previous in the Japanese version) is Xenologue 7 of Fire Emblem Fates.


This Xenologue is the first chapter of a two chapter story that explains how Owain, Severa, and Inigo came to the world of Fire Emblem Fates and became Odin, Selena, and Laslow, respectively.

Some time after the defeat of the Fell Dragon, Grima, Owain, Severa, and Inigo met a mysterious man who asked for their help to save his kingdom. He couldn't explain more, but he left them a map, saying that if they trusted him, they should meet him at the location marked on the map on the next full moon.

When they arrived, the mysterious man changed their appearances by changing their hair color and erasing Owain's Brand mark. Before he could explain more, a ghostly man appeared and attacked them along with an army. However, the three heroes managed to drive them off, forcing the ghostly man to retreat.

The mysterious man thanked them, but told them he couldn't explain more because of a curse that would erase him from existance if he told anyone about his kingdom while he wasn't in it. Instead, he offered them a boon in exchange for their help. The three of them asked him to restore their ruined future world, and the man obliges them. He then gives them a crystal that will allow them to either return to the time they're currently in, or to their own future, once their job in his world is done.


You'll want to focus on keeping the three close together to help them assist each other in a fight, some units will drop stat upgrades, which should be given to one unit who will be essentially leading the fight. Severa can make a good leader, because she has the highest Defense and Strength of the three. You can pair Inigo with her, and have Owain use the Levin Sword as ranged support. Keep all three close together often, and remember to be easy on the Concoctions. Also, make sure you give the stat boosters to whoever needs them the most. For example, Owain should use the Dracoshield and Inigo should use the Talisman. You'll need all three units when you fight the Swordmaster boss in the end, though he can be beaten otherwise with slight difficulty.

  • Because Owain uses the exact same voice samples as his Odin persona instead of his Awakening lines, he may prematurely refer to himself as "Odin Dark" upon executing a Dual Guard.
