“Top secret military information has been stolen. To recover the information, Chrom chases after the perpetrator.”

Roster Rescue (Labyrinth Pursuit in the Japanese version) is Xenologue 21 of Fire Emblem Awakening. This chapter takes place in the Outrealms.


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

Due to the nature of the Ruins, at the end of the enemy's turn they will either crumble themselves or restore themselves, the latter making it impossible to pass until they collapse again. All the ruins are passable like in Nah's Paralogue, so you do not have to keep waiting for the ruins to collapse to pass over. However, if you want to obtain Palla, killing all seven Revenants are mandatory. Using Mire is required in order to kill some, due to the other Risen that will interfere with your attempts to kill them.

The Risen in this DLC are somewhat strong, having a rating around 200-250. It should be important to note each Risen unit and what they have:

Your team is split up into two groups in the northwest and northeast corners. The Revenants will escape from the north central, southwest or southeast areas of the map. If you want Palla, kill the Revenant in the middle as it is next to an escape point and if the player is not noticing, it will escape and prevent the player from recruiting Palla. Try to clear up enemies as quickly as you can; however, you must be careful of the staircases, as like most battles in Awakening, these are same-turn reinforcements which can cause casualties if the player is being careless.

Eventually, the last two Revenants will appear from the south central staircases. It is possible to block the exit points, though you will need to clear the Risen out quickly to ensure that they are not killed. The enemy commander is aggressive, so a strong unit should bait him out.

There are two chests in the southwest corner; looting these are optional.

Enemy ReinforcementsEdit

  • Random Risen (those on the map) will appear from the top staircases, gradually appearing towards the bottom staircases.
  • Two Revenants will appear from the south central staircases.

The glitch in action.

  • There is a glitch in the English version where Inigo's pre-battle text does not display properly; pressing the right shoulder button will allow you to view the text on the bottom screen.
  • When battling the seven Revenants, combat animations are always on, even if the player turns them off.
