“As I believe you are already aware, Seteth's younger sister, Flayn, has gone missing. At present, all we know for certain is that she has not left Garreg Mach. There are rumors of someone prowling the streets and attacking innocents, night after night... Professor. Your mission for this month is to help find Flayn.”
—Lady Rhea

Rumors of a Reaper is the 6th chapter of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.


Rumors begin spreading across the academy of a reaper appearing at night, kidnapping students. While the rumor seemed unfounded, the academy is put into high alert when Flayn is a victim. Rhea assigns Byleth to investigate and save Flayn.

By the end of the month, Byleth's investigation leads them to Jeritza's room where they find Manuela wounded and unconscious. Edelgard/Dimitri/Claude takes her to the infirmary while Byleth and their other students eventually find an underground passage where they find Flayn and the unconscious body of a female student held captured by the Death Knight. Byleth and the Students are able to repel the Death Knights forces and the Flame Emperor forces him to retreat, allowing Byleth to recover Flayn.

Flayn is okay, but Seteth expresses worry for her safety after the incident. While he suggests that the two go into hiding to prevent others from kidnapping her again for her unique crest, Flayn adamantly declines as they would at most delay the inevitable and that the two would be far safer at the academy where they can be protected by the Knights and Byleth's students. Seteth, after months of doubt, finally accepts Byleth's capacity as a warrior and a professor and agrees to allow Flayn to join their class as a means to protect her.

Trivia Edit

  • Though the Death Knight is not meant to be beaten, doing so anyway will give a unit access to the Dark Seal, which they will need to promote a male unit to the Dark Mage and Dark Bishop classes.
    • It is possible to steal the Dark Seal, however.
