Fire Emblem s01e02
Titre original : Crimson Warrior
The second episode focuses on the deadly mercenary Navarre. The episode begins with him surrounded by attackers, but he easily defeats them all, which catches the attention of Reynard, a bandit leader. Reynard offers Navarre a job, which is initially refused. However, Navarre changes his mind once he sees that the bandits have abducted a priestess named Rena. Meanwhile, Marth's group has arrived in a nearby village, and hearing about Rena's abduction, agrees to rescue her.
Navarre's nightmares give a brief insight into his past, but he spends most of his time observing the functions of the bandit lair. He notices that one named Julian has been secretly delivering food to Rena. When the two try to escape, they are ambushed by guards. Navarre approaches, and although he appears intent on killing Julian, he instead kills the guards, and then leaves. Julian is later seen wounded, and encounters Marth, begging him to rescue Rena.
While Julian's betrayal seems to be known, Navarre's isn't, and he remains with the bandits. Once Marth's forces attack, the lair erupts into chaos, and Rena is once again saved by Navarre. She asks why he kills so casually, and he claims that even God can't forgive his sins. While leaving the lair, Navarre encounters Oguma, one of Sheeda's mercenaries. The two engage in combat, and seem equally matched, but Sheeda steps in and stops the fight. She tries to reason with Navarre, who believes that no fighting can be honorable. Sheeda tells him that it can be if his cause is just, and Navarre replies that he wants to see the just cause for which she fights, joining their group.
