Recap of Episode 12 in Season 3 of The Rising of The Shield Hero
At the start of the tale, Sadeena is having a drink with Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Gaelin in her secret hideout. Naofumi advises that Gaelin should use this hidden location to teach him the Way of the Dragon Vein without Atla getting in the way. Afterward, Naofumi muses on whether to use Gaelin’s blessing to make the Way of the Dragon Vein accessible to all.
Erhard brings Raphtalia the new garments Naofumi requested when he arrives in Lurolona Village. He is adamant that she will only wear these from now on. But as soon as Sadeena notices Raphtalia’s new robes, she orders her to change.
It is explained by Sadeena that Raphtalia is making a dangerous declaration by dressing in this way, implying that she is putting herself in line for a position of power abroad. The room in which Raphtalia is changing bursts into flames, and they find themselves under attack by enigmatic men dressed in black, who are very opposed to Raphtalia ascending to the throne.
Even with their greatest efforts, Naofumi’s group is unable to repel the invaders. Naofumi and Raphtalia respond by using choral magic to confuse their attackers.
The reason behind the attempted assassination of Raphtalia is revealed. Raphtalia was targeted by the Q’ten Lo assassins, according to Sadeena, since she belonged to the Q’ten Lo royal family. It is considered a direct threat to the empress title and an act of war against their country to wear the robes of the Heavenly Empress.
Sadeena discloses that Raphtalia’s parents fled Q’ten Lo and took sanctuary in Melromarc to raise her because of disagreements regarding the emperor to coming. Entrusted with keeping the members of the royal family safe, Sadeena fled with them and helped raise Raphtalia.
Naofumi, incensed at the incident, decides to journey to Q’ten Lo to hold talks with their kingdom. But should diplomacy fail, he is ready to use force in an attempt to decisively subdue them.
