Waking after five years of slumber, Byleth returns to Garreg Mach Monastery and reunites with Seteth, who is intent on driving out thieving bandits that have taken up residence in the years since the members of the Church abandoned the grounds to search for Rhea. Byleth agrees to help, but the pair are soon joined by familiar faces.
As the battle progresses, all Black Eagles students that have survived to this point in the game and that remain loyal to Byleth will return:
- Caspar, arrives in the NW
- Dorothea, arrives in the NW
- Petra, arrives in the SW
- Bernadetta, arrives in the NE
- Ferdinand, arrives in the NE
- Linhardt, arrives in the NE
Any students recruited from other houses and additional non-student recruits acquired in the Academy Phase of the game will rejoin the player's ranks upon the chapter's conclusion, except for Ashe and Lorenz, who can be re-recruited in chapters 15 and 16 respectively.

- North of his starting position
