“The next day after Dorias departed for Alster, Leif gathered the remaining troops and prepared to leave as well. However, just as he was about to start on his way, one of Dorias' messengers came rushing to him back from Alster. His words were the beginning of a long and difficult task for Leif...”

|The following part of this article contains strategy; therefore, it is subjective, and may not work for everyone.|
This chapter can be relatively easy or incredibly difficult depending on how your units are arranged and there is unfortunately little you can do to mitigate that. Ideally, you want as many mounted units to start toward the bottom of the map, but you have very limited control over their starting placements so you will likely have to work around them. The basic strategy for this map is to grab all four civilians (if you want another Knight's Crest) and rush your units upward toward the castle in the upper part of the map. Reinforcements will be constantly arriving and the enemies have very powerful weapons making it difficult to stand your ground. You can use the Rescue staff if absolutely necessary or a Rewarp staff if an A rank stave user started there. If you intend to grab a civilian before doing the latter, be careful on the turn you rescue them as you will be very vulnerable.
Most of the houses have mediocre items so don't worry too much about stopping the Thieves. You can use a flyer to grab the specific items you want early and ignore the rest if getting all of them proves too difficult. The only other thing to do whilst escaping is try to recruit Conomore (if you took the B route) or Amalda (if you took the A route) with Miranda or Sleuf respectively. This is a dangerous proposition considering how frail the units you need to use are so be ready with a Rescue staff or a few units to block them off. Once you've recruited either Conomore or Amalda, their troops will assist you as neutral units.
Once you have gotten to the north castle, you can also opt to turn and fight the reinforcements for EXP using the bridge as a choke point. With support from Nanna and a King Sword holder, this can be a perfect time to level your newly promoted Leif up to 20 while also using scrolls to patch up his weaknesses. Once they are taken care of or you have been overrun, move everyone to the exit and go to the next chapter.
