First i would like to say that this article has really big Fire Emblem 6 spoilers in it..
FE7 ends with Hector and Eliwood talking about strange reports comming from Bern about Berns King and Prince Zephiel. One saying that the prince was killed, the other said that the king was killed.
At the end they show Zephiel talking to a cloaked man.. who asks him why he wishes to bring back the dark dragon. Zephiel just smiles.
At the beginning of FE6 the story starts off with Zephiel, King of Bern sends his his forces out to conquer
the rest of Elibe. Sacae and Illia have already fallen to Bern. And Bern has its sight set on the Lycia Alliance.
Lord Eliwood tells Roy, his son to go to Ostia and see what he can help with since Lord Hector isnt in Ostia right now. On his way he meets up with Guinevere the princess of Bern, Zephiels sister. She tells Roy that she wants to end the war peacefuly. Roy agrees and takes her to meet with Lord Hector.
However, when Roy was only half a day away from Castle Araphen, a messenger brought him news that he could not believe. The message was this.”Bern has a trio of elite generals called the Three Dragon Lords. Two of these, General Brenya and General Narshen, have attacked Castle Araphen and have nearly decimated the Lycia Alliance Army”.
General Brenya tells Zephiel that they captured the enemy leader. Zephiel tells her to bring him to me. Hector apears. Hector asks him why?
Bern and Lycia were always on good terms.
Zephiel answers: “Respect? Don’t be ridiculous. Lycia…no, this entire continent must go under my rule. That is the only way to liberate this world. I lack the time to be worrying about such trivial matters as respect.”
Hector: “To liberate…this world? What do you mean…?”
Zephiel: “It is of no importance to you. You are going to die anyway. Someone! Take him away!”
After a soldier takes Hector away Brenya asks Zephiel is its wise to trust sinister people? Zephiel asks her if shes talking about Idoun, and tells Brenya to have faith in him.
Later, Roy arives at the castle and talks to a spy who tells him he’s sure that Hector is still alive inside the castle. Roy finds him in the castle severely wounded. Before he dies Hector tell Roy that he didnt think it was possible for Bern to bring back the dragons that humans fought during the Scouring. And leaves Roy in charge of the Lycia Alliance Army.
Through the story Roy makes his way through all the countries that Bern had conquered reclaiming them.
When traveling through all these countries he hears of a strange rumor that Zephiel was the one who killed the king. He desides talk with Guinevere about this strange rumor. She’s shocked when he first tells her about it and tells him to give her some time before she talks about it.
Later Guinevere approches Roy and tells him in sort.. the rumor is true. Then Roys confused and responds by saying that King Zephiel killed his father so he could have the throne? Guinevere who is now very emotional tells Roy, no your wrong our father tried to kill Zephiel first. She starts to say something but stops and says its nothing.
The next day Guinevere meets with Roy again and tells him that shes actually Zephiels half sister, Zephiel’s mother was the Etrurian princess and Guineveres father was the king of Bern. The King already loved someone else but he was forced to wed the Etrurian princess to strengthen the bond between Bern and Etruia. She continues by telling that Zephiel always tried gain our father’s affection, he excelled in everything and gained the respect of Berns people but it just made our father jealous. She continues her story by telling one day the king said that Guineveres husband would be the next king. Zephiel didnt even mind, but the people were looking forward to Zephiel being king. The king had enough and desided to kill Zephiel.
At a banquet our father handed Zephiel a poisoned drink, for 10 days he lingered between life and death, Guinevere says. Durring those 10 days General Murdock cared for him.
“She continues by telling Zephiel made believe that he was dead. Our father then checked the coffin to confirm Zephiel’s death. At that moment, Zephiel rose up from the coffin and…with his sword…” She was young so she had no idea what had happened but after that day Zephiel never smiled again. She tells Roy no matter what he has to stop him.
Later Roy makes it inside Zephiels castle. He walks toward Zephiel and asks him why did he start this war? Zephiel tells him he wants to end the age of men. “Jealousy. Hate. Greed. Friends, even family members would be driven to kill by these stupid emotions. Such emotions create fathers who try to kill their own sons to save their own flesh. As long as humans control, as long as humans dictate, as long as humans exist…this madness will never end”
then he tells Roy if he knows how the scouring ended, Roy answers: yes the dark dragon was sealed away.
Zephiel tells him it was a mistake, dragons have no “self” and if they ruled, the world would be fair and peaceful. After Zephiel is defeated he tells Roy “…So you have defeated me… But remember… My will shall never die…
As long as…humans retain control…madness will persist…”
I feel kinda bad for him.. seeing as it was never his fault..
