Inexorable Death (Destiny of Death in the Japanese version) is Chapter 17 of Fire Emblem: Awakening.
In this chapter, your units start off in small groups of three outside the entrance of Fort Steiger. It is recommended that you bring along a unit or two with the Locktouch ability, noting the various treasures obtainable and the doors you can open, allowing for easier regrouping inside. There are two ways you can go through this chapter, either defeating Pheros as fast as possible and ending early, or ransacking the entire fortress and defeating all of the enemies. Be wary of reinforcements that enter from the various staircases inside, which can spell trouble if a unit is left alone. However, Say'ri will inform you about the reinforcements before they come out in the following turn. If you take the strategy of collecting the treasures inside, it is best to take your strongest units backed up by various seasoned well-ranged units (Paladins, Falcon Knights, and the like) to block off any staircases where reinforcements may arrive. Keep in mind that apart from the Valmese soldiers inside the fortress, a Thief will also be after the treasure, so catch him before he escapes. If Pheros is still alive after the 10th turn, Excellus appears and triggers a short cutscene, sending out a swarm of reinforcements on your team. At this point, it is best to approach Pheros with a single high-Strength unit, because of the high caution of triggering reinforcements to arrive on the scene, and also considering the Valkyrie's low Defense but high Resistance.
