Well, this was a long time coming…
If you haven’t unlocked 19xx in FE7, I don’t expect you to have any clue as to what the hell Nergal is talking about. Don’t worry though, everything will be explained over the rest of the piece.
The dragon flashing white was a reference to the Fire Dragon’s critical animation from FE7, and Nergal taking him out so easily with a Luna spell was a reference to how OP Luna was back in the day. Seriously, Canas or Athos using Luna and getting a critical would kill the dragon in one hit. Meanwhile the Sol Katti was completely useless even if you maxed out Lyn’s stats.
Yes, I included Bantu. I figured it would be a nice little Easter Egg for those who have played the Akaneia games. I added the brief exposition about him for those who had never heard his name before.
And now we know how Arcadia was founded… at least partly. Next chapter will expand on what we all learned in FE7.
