Ngh… this is terrible… House Akaneia must truly be cursed. As you know, two years ago… Hardin and Princess Nina were wed. In order to restore Akaneia to glory, a king was needed. There were but two suitable individuals: King Orleans’s younger brother, Duke Hardin, and you, Prince Marth of Aritia… Princess Nina begged me to wait just a while longer, but once I insisted of its absolute urgency… She said that it could not be you, for Princess Sheeda would grieve. In the end, Hardin was our only choice…
– Bishop Boa of Akaneia, talking to Marth, as he lays dying in front of Pales Castle
In this scenario, Hardin of Orleans had married Nina, but she did not return the favour. In truth, she loved General Camus of Grunia, who was thought to be long dead… That is how it goes in the original Mystery of the Emblem. But what if Nina chose the other option available to her? What if she chose to wed Marth instead, regardless of any grieving Sheeda might go through? Biraku Emblem serves to explore this alternate history of Akaneia.
