Summary

Sword, Fish, Resistance

Meeting up with Teppei, he tells the Traveler that their appointment with Sangonomiya Kokomi is coming and sails them to Watatsumi Island. Arriving at Bourou Village, Teppei suddenly remembers about the appointment as he puts himself at ease. The two head there and find Kokomi talking with Ookubo Daisuke, the former telling the latter to keep food supplies steady and that the army is expanding. As the two walk in, Daisuke is surprised to see Teppei, and even moreso when he recognizes the Traveler as the new recruit everyone is talking about. Daisuke then excuses himself.

Teppei then asks Kokomi what she meant about the expanding army, and she tells the two that a short while ago, someone sent her a letter promising her men and supplies as long as they continued their fight against the Shogunate. While suspicious of their true motives, she nonetheless chose to ally with them for the badly needed supplies. Seeing the Traveler's potential, she also promotes them to captain of the Swordfish II spec ops group, much to Teppei's bewilderment. Kokomi hands them an appointment letter so they could get their squad's trust, while explaining that some ronin have been causing trouble for the rearguard and need to be exterminated. As Teppei asks what he could do, Kokomi promises to find something for him.

They find two members, who inspect the letter. They are skeptical of their prowess, so they have them take out a group of ronin nearby, as they don't have time for a duel. After clearing the ronin, they introduce themselves as Koutoku and Yoshihisa. Koutoku cedes position of captain to the Traveler, who then asks them if there are any other ronin to deal with. Yoshihisa states that there is a stronghold on the eastern side of the island, and Paimon encourages the Traveler to clear them out so they can't hamper the war efforts. At the area, there are three camps, and the group separates to clear them all out at once before they could scatter and regroup. With the island now secure, the Traveler returns to Kokomi for further instruction.

Kokomi thanks them for their efforts and gives them a new assignment. The ruins of Fort Mumei during the Archon Wars have been used as a supply transit between Watatsumi and Tatarasuna, but recently, supplies have gone missing and there were no reports of danger in the area. She tasks them with investigating what is going on there, but allows them to take a few days' respite. The Traveler then asks where Teppei went, and she tells them that she sent him on a naval battle against the Shogun's Navy per his wishes to fight on the front lines. The Traveler trains with their unit and meets Teppei a few days later. He is excited to see them doing well and also reveals that due to his participation in the naval battle, he has now been appointed captain of the newly formed Herring I unit. As the two share some small talk, a member of Herring I calls him over for their new mission. The Traveler and Paimon then go off to complete their own assignment.

Those Who Yearn For the Gods' Gaze

Arriving on Fort Mumei, the pair arrive on the island and find some suspicious Electro monuments. Upon activating them, a Thunderhelm Lawachurl ambushes them, but the Traveler easily dispatches of it. Teppei soon comes in, having returned from a supply run. Paimon notes that he's worse for wear and constantly coughing. Teppei states that he knew someone was investigating and hoped to be the hero to save them, only to be surprised when it was the Traveler. He then explains about Orobashi, the snake god who the Raiden Shogun slew during the Archon War. There are rumors that she lost someone dear to her during the war, but because of the Vision Hunt Decree, it is up to the resistance to fight against her injustice. As Teppei takes his leave, Paimon suggests to return to Kokomi.

At the shrine, the pair find Gorou with Kokomi, while Paimon notes that the tone is serious. Gorou states that some soldiers are showing signs of advanced aging by using secret weapons in battle, hence why the resistance is doing well. Kokomi does not want anyone to use these weapons, and the two note the pair have returned. Gorou shows the Traveler what he confiscated, which the Traveler recognizes as a Fatui Delusion. The three are shocked to learn that the Fatui are sponsoring them, but Kokomi states that they have to put a stop to the Delusions right away. Paimon them remembers Teppei had shown similar symptoms and the two rush to check in on him.

Teppei has significantly aged and reveals that after they got promoted to Swordfish II, he met with people who claimed to be with their sponsor and gave them the Delusion. The Traveler explains to Teppei that the Delusion is dangerous as it drains their life force, which he only realizes at the moment. Lamenting that the gods have not seen him, he asks them to bring the Herring I uniform so they can change together as he dozes off and dies. The Traveler vows revenge on the Fatui.

Delusion

Kokomi and Gorou arrive outside the training ground and meet with the Traveler. She has enacted a ban on the Delusions; while most only a loss of vitality, others were not so fortunate. Gorou states that the soldiers will continue to use the Delusions despite the ban. Kokomi decides to head to the front lines to address the situation, but the Traveler insists on going instead to get revenge on the Fatui. Kokomi is worried they will be unable to deal with the situation alone and suggests bringing troops, but Gorou advises her against this, as their reckless confiscation of the Delusions has likely gotten the Fatui's attention and they need to stop the Fatui before they escape. Kokomi then brainstorms where the Fatui are making the Delusions, as the Sakoku Decree would prevent them from importing them into Inazuma. She then guesses that the factory is somewhere on Yashiori Island and the Traveler heads there right away.

As the Traveler clears the facility, they realize that the Kanjou Commission has been collaborating with them due to the Crystal Marrow stocks inside. The Fatui desperately try to hold them off for the "Lord Harbinger". The Harbinger is soon revealed to be Scaramouche, but he claims that he is not the mastermind of the events in Inazuma, only simply following orders. He states that the Delusions make for a powerful market for the weak, such as Teppei, which angers the Traveler. But before they could do anything, the Traveler collapses, as the facility is infested with the wrathful energy of the old gods. Before the Traveler blacks out, they spot Yae Miko confronting Scaramouche.

The Servant's Path

The Traveler comes to at the Grand Narukami Shrine. Yae explains that the Traveler is the only one who can save Inazuma and Ei, the Raiden Shogun. She states that the person they saw at the ceremony is a vessel and that Ei is actually the sword used in the Musou no Hitotachi art. But because the Traveler also manifested inside her realm, Yae believes that Ei has taken an interest in them. She also believes that if they can defeat her in the plane, she would repeal the Vision Hunt Decree and sends them off for specialized training.

Arriving at the abandoned shrine, Yae reveals a mechanism that allows the Traveler to fight the Raiden Shogun based on her memory of her at the time. She also reveals herself to be a fox servant of Ei, but because she believes Ei is acting childish, it is up to her to bring her back to reality. After finishing the training, Yae states that she has a guest to greet at the shrine. The guest is none other than Kujou Sara, who immediately orders the Traveler's arrest, but Yae reminds her that no violence is allowed at the shrine. Sara begrudgingly orders her troops to stand down and leave per Yae's request. Yae tells her that the Vision Hunt Decree is a lie and that the Fatui are pulling the strings, but Sara is not convinced, so Yae states that she'll give her the evidence in three days. Sara accepts, stating that if the evidence is nonexistent or false, Yae will have to apologize for her baseless slander and that the Traveler will be coming with her.

Proof of Guilt

As Sara leaves, Yae reveals that they can get their evidence by "awakening the professional" at Chinju Forest. The professional is none other than Sayu, and Yae tells Paimon that she is a member of the Shuumatsuban. Yae tells the Traveler to go into town to collect evidence, which they are unsure of, but she reminds them of the Yashiro Commission. They arrive at Komore Teahouse and find Thoma, asking them to bring Ayaka to the teahouse. Once she arrives, the Traveler explains their activities. Ayaka found it odd that the Shogun never inquired about the war against the resistance, but only Kujou Takayuki has access to the documents. Even then, it is heavily guarded, but a distraction should help, upon which Thoma remembers about Yoimiya. They meet with Yoimiya and ask for a firework; she gives them an extra-large one and asks them to let it know how it went.

The Traveler meets up with Sayu before setting the fireworks off by the Statue of the Omnipresent God and fleeing back to teahouse. Sayu soon returns, having taken everything she deemed suspicious before going off to sleep. As Ayaka looks at the papers, she finds a document for the latest report, and collaboration with the Fatui. Ayaka gives them to the Traveler, and Paimon reminds them to head back to the shrine.

Returning to the shrine, Sara asks Yae for the evidence. The Traveler arrives with them, which Sara reads. She is disgusted to see that there is no mention of the war in the official report, and after looking at the collaboration letter, becomes enraged as she storms off to confront her adoptive father. The Traveler and Paimon prepare to follow her, but Yae states that if they want to reach Ei, they'll have to recreate the scenario as with their first encounter. She also gives them an omamori as a farewell gift.

Blind Loyalty, Reckless Courage

Returning to town, Sara discovers the two have followed her. She nonetheless accepts them witnesses until she gets answers from her adoptive father, but warns them that if they've deceived her she'll charge them with an extra crime. Heading inside, she forcefully removes all of the guards, prompting Takayuki to come out and scold her. Sara asks him if what she saw is true, which he does not deny, stating that the Fatui were means to preserve the clan's power, as they would be no match for the Shogun herself. He also reveals that she is meeting with Signora at Tenshukaku, much to the Traveler and Paimon's surprise as they realize she is the mastermind behind everything in Inazuma.

Duel Before the Throne

Heading into Tenshukaku, the Traveler finds that Sara has dispatched of all of the guards. Heading inside, they find the Shogun, Signora, and an unconscious Sara. The Shogun chastises Signora for punishing one of her own, while the Traveler informs her of the Fatui's misdeeds. Signora feigns innocence in the accusations and reminds the Traveler that they're still a wanted criminal. They counter this by calling a duel before the throne, which the Shogun accepts. Signora, confident that she would win, becomes shocked when she ends up losing. The Shogun then walks towards the two, prompting the Traveler to raise their sword, but she ignores them and heads for Signora. The Harbinger protests that she has diplomatic immunity, but her plea falls on deaf ears as the Shogun kills her with the Musou no Hitotachi. She then allows the Traveler to leave Tenshukaku alive.

As the Traveler leaves Tenshukaku, they get some headaches while Paimon is worried over their silence. Upon exiting the grounds, they find the resistance, along with Gorou and Kazuha, who then stop in horror as they spot the Shogun's sigil behind them as she prepares to strike them down. Kazuha, with the assistance of his friend's Vision, manages to dart to them and block the attack before he is knocked away. The rest of the group charges at the Shogun, but knowing that they are no match for her, the Traveler attacks the Shogun first, arriving at Ei's plane.

The Omnipresent God

Inside the realm, Ei reveals that she allows the Vision Hunt Decree to go on despite knowing of the Fatui's involvement as it poses no threat to her ideals of eternity. The Traveler states that they are here to demolish her notions, which Ei takes as a challenge to a duel and accepts. During the duel, Ei releases the Vision Hunt Decree, but the Traveler remembers the omamori Yae gave them and takes it out, causing her to appear in the plane. Ei is surprised to see that this was all Yae's doing, and Yae reminds the Traveler that the embedded Visions from the Statue of the Omnipresent God have passed their ambitions to them. They tap into these Visions and abolish the decree, allowing them to defeat Ei. Ei concedes defeat but initially maintains that she is doing the right thing, to which Yae replies that she is doing more harm than good. Ei then decides to rescind the Vision Hunt Decree and restart her friendship with Yae.

After learning the full extent of the damage caused by the Fatui, Ei has the Shogun return the seized Visions back to their rightful owners provided that they could be found or were alive and has both the Kanjou and Tenryou Commissoners arrested for their roles in the Fatui plot.

Wishes

Returning to the shrine, the Traveler meets with Yae, who requested them to the shrine. Paimon is glad that they stopped the Fatui and prevented them from getting their hands on a Gnosis, but Yae reveals that she gave it to Scaramouche in return for the Traveler's safety. Yae explains that prior to her meditation, Ei gave the Gnosis to her as she only saw it as a sign of conflict and she had cut off all ties with Celestia. She remarks that she had made a good deal with Scaramouche. In return for saving Inazuma, and knowing that their journey is not over, she allows them to ask several questions. She promises to help them look for their sibling and advises that they go to Sumeru next.
