“Archanea: the largest kingdom in the continent. The palace: a golden capital proud of its six hundred years of history. However, under the attack of Altea’s allied forces, it fell in a mere day. The Archaneans welcomed them as liberators, supporting them without sparing efforts. All of them had bitter words about Hardin and his bodyguards, who were inside the castle. The people now called Hardin the Dark Emperor. A title symbolic of the people’s hatred for he who had killed so many. "I didn’t wish to fight, given the choice, but now that it’s come to this…" Marth raises Anri’s flag up high, issuing his final order. "Go, heroes of Altea! This is the final battle. All forces, charge into the palace!"”
