Prior to the events of the game, the Flame Emperor hired Kostas and his gang of thieves to attack students from the Officers Academy during a camping trip. Among these students are the three house leaders: Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude.

Byleth and Jeralt come to the students' aid. Together with the house leaders, they defeat Kostas and his thieves. After the battle, Kostas catches Edelgard off guard and attempts to strike her down, only for Byleth to run in and take the blow. This causes Sothis to awaken within Byleth and use the power of Divine Pulse to rewind time. Knowing what's to come, Byleth is able to easily deflect Kostas; who is forced to retreat shortly afterwards when the Knights of Seiros arrive.

A week later, Kostas meets up with the Flame Emperor at the Red Canyon and expresses anger for not being told about the Knights of Seiros being involved. Displeased by Kostas' ineptitude, the Flame Emperor leaves him to fend for himself, effectively condemning him and his gang of thieves to their death.

The Knights of Seiros discover that Kostas and his bandits are residing at the Red Canyon and Byleth - now a newly-appointed professor at the Officers Academy - is sent with their students to subdue the thieves. Kostas refuses to flee, which results in his death at the end of the skirmish.

The next month, a thief from Kostas' group takes refuge at the Abyss and run into Byleth, trying to persuade them that Kostas was deceived and begging forgiveness.
