“In an unthinkable series of events, Sigurd had been denounced as a traitor by his beloved motherland. In the midst of adversity, he found refuge in the sovereign Kingdom of Silesse just north of Grannvale. Silesse was founded by the Wind Crusader Sety. Under the guard of the valiant Pegasus Knights and the Wind Mages, Silesse proved to be impenetrable by any force. As a result, Silesse successfully maintained its neutrality for the hundred years following its foundation. However, opposition arose within the royal family soon after the king's death. Before long signs of war began to emerge within the once peaceful kingdom. Between the late king and Queen Rahna they had a son, Prince Lewyn. The zealous younger brother to the king, Duke Daccar, protested the idea of Lewyn succeeding the throne, and confined himself to Zaxon Castle. And almost as if acting in concert the youngest brother to the king, Duke Maios, began to amass an army at Thove Castle. It was these events that compelled Prince Lewyn to leave the country. There was no indication of just how far the conspiring brothers would go. The majestic land of Silesse was about to be engulfed by the raging flames of war.”

Dance in the Skies/Script

The following part of this article contains strategy; therefore, it is subjective, and may not work for everyone.

This chapter is filled with many Pegasus Knights so Briggid and Jamke will be very busy in this chapter. Midayle and Arden (if you promoted him and gave him a bow) also work well here. At the beginning you should have Tailto talk to Azel so she can get an HP boost and a large amount of love points. Tailto is very weak so training her in the arena by using her Wrath skill is advised. The enemy mages may give her problems due to wind magic having advantage over thunder but she should be fine as long as she is not sent into a swarm of enemies. While moving up, you should have everyone kill off the mages at the top as well as Cuvuli. By the time you arrive close to the forest Deet'var and her group should be nearly there. Set everyone up in the forest for the extra evasion and keep your frail fighters out of the way her leadership stars; the sheer amount of Pegasus Knights could easily cost a loss. Once she is in range have a bow user, or even Lex with a Hero Axe, do away with her. Have Sylvia visit the village toward the middle top to get the Defender Sword. Word of caution, though, as the scene of her dancing may cause the game to freeze. If it happens, just reset the game and visit the village again. Toward the top there are two Wind Mages and a Mage Fighter, all of which have Blizzard, so care should be taken when approaching. The bridge will not go down unless Dew is put there, but don't do it right away as the enemies on the other side are perfect for Tailto to grind a couple of levels on. Let her kill most, or all, of them then drop the bridge. After Maios is killed, the scene will change. Pamela will come out and Mahnya the two forces will fight so this will give you time to get ready. After Mahnya is killed and Silessia Castle is taken, rescue the NPC's to get an instant level up. This is a great time to get Tailto to level 20 and get those who are a bit underleveled up to speed. Be sure to have Lewyn visit Silessia Castle after it's seized so he can get the Forseti tome. It's pretty straightforward beyond this point. Fight Pamela in the same fashion as Deet'var; Lamia can easily be taken down with Lewyn's Forseti; Daccar can be defeated the same way as Maios.


It is very possible for the game to freeze when Sylvia is doing her dance for the village in order to get the Defender Sword. Thus, it is highly recommended to save your game before having her visit the village.
