“In the past, there was a war known as the War of Shadows. It began when the fearsome Shadow Dragon, Medeus, launched a sudden invasion. The Kingdom of Akaneia, protector of the lands, clashed with Medeus's forces. But against such superior might, Akaneia was overwhelmed and trembled in defeat. Nyna, princess of Akaneia, had no choice but to flee from her beloved homeland. To rescue Akaneia, the Kingdom of Altea, its allied nation, sallied forth. However, it too was defeated by Medeus. With its king lost to war, Altea fell to ruins…
From his exiled shores Marth, young prince of Altea, swore he would retake his homeland. Marth never forgot his oath. Years later, he rallied an army at Talys to defeat Medeus. Starting with Shiida, Talys's princess, Marth gathered together many allies. Duke Hardin, Nyna's guardian, also became one of his trusted comrades. With Akaneia's treasured "Fire Emblem" awarded to him by Nyna, Marth led the Akaneian League, as its commander. In the following battles, the League wrestled back control of both Akaneia and Altea. Finally, after a long and fierce battle with Shadow Dragon Medeus’s forces, Marth vanquished the Shadow Dragon… And thus did peace return to the world.
These are the events that transpired one year ago.”
