Three years have passed since the Mad King's war, and Tellius is
once more falling into turmoil. Upon winning the war, Crimea is
forced to turn control of the war-torn Daein over to the Begnion
Empire. Thanks to a group of crooked senators, the citizens of Daein
are made to live in suffering. Their only hope is a group of chivalrous
bandits, The Dawn Brigade.
Led by the Priestess of Dawn, Micaiah, and the young veteran of
the Crimea-Daein war, Sothe, the Dawn Brigade fights for the freedom
of Daein. Led by the hope from the true ruler of Daein, Prince Pelleas,
the Dawn Brigade begin a campaign that brings them to the doors
of the capital city.
Meanwhile, a plot has been hatched to overthrow the Queen of Crimea.
A secret rebellion led by the evil Count Ludvek sweeps across the
land, spreading rumors of icompetence in the newly crowned Queen,
spurring the younger generation into action. Queen Ellincia's faithful
retainer's protect her with their lives, but their numbers are few
and the outlook grim. If only they could locate those heroes of
the war, Crimea's saviors, the Greil Mercenaries, the tide of battle,
would push in their favor.
Elsewhere, the Laguz territories finally learn the truth of who
was responsible for the Serenes massacre. An alliance is formed,
and the Laguz troops march for war, steadfast in their drive for
justice. Joined by Ike and the Greil Mercenaries, the alliance gains
momentum and pushes into Begnion. Deep into Begnion territory, the
alliance is met by Zephiel, the most powerful general in the Begnion
army. A betrayal tears asunder the plans of the alliance, and they
are forced to retreat. Begnion gives chase across land and water,
determined to strike down the Laguz menace once and for all.
Amidst the horrors of war, a voice is constantly heard, the voice
of the Dark Goddess. As the whole of Tellius slips into the icy
grasp of war, she struggles against her prison, determined to break
free and wreak havoc upon Beorc and Laguz alike. Barely held in
check by the royal clan of Herons, is there any hope for those who
stand on the side of right? Or will the might of the Dark Goddess
overcome her boundaries and destroy all that lives upon the face
