“After liberating Grust, Marth accepted Wendel's request to find the lost Orbs, and headed to Raman Temple. However the ancient temple, built to worship Naga, was wrecked by constant warring and has now become a thieves' hideout. "They're escaping with the temple's valuable treasures. We mustn't let them take them away. We must recover them!!" "We mustn't attract the attention of the soldiers guarding Cashmere Bridge. We don't stand a chance of winning, so don't appoach at all costs." "Also it seems there's a travelling child dancer who's lost her way in the forests. We must rescue her before she gets ambushed by the thieves!" After the troops received their orders, they surrounded Raman Temple. The flame of a new battle was about to ignite.” —Opening Narration, Mystery of the Emblem
