Meroë is located next to a steep mountain range, which kept the town safe when the empire dropped the Ultima Bomb to the north of them. The town is conquered by the Militesi Empire during Cid Aulstyne's campaign to claim all the Crystals of Orience. Agito Cadets from Akademeia are deployed to liberate it. Class Second students fight the invaders, but discover Class Zero has captured the imperials' aircraft with the local leaders inside. It turns out Class Second was used as decoys, and Class Zero got the true assignment, annoying the Class Second cadets.
After the town has been liberated the cadets can visit it and find dominion quaestors there. One asks if the cadets are familiar with the Nameless Tome, a collection of apocalyptic prophecies of unknown authorship stored at Akademeia since antiquity. The quaestor explains no one is certain of its meaning. There is also a kid who has only learned about Tempus Finis, an apocalyptic calamity spoken of in legend, asking a quaestor if the world will end soon, who explains that Akademeia's Agito Cadets are working day and night to prevent it, and that the kid should not worry.
The town is liberated in an Expert Trial the party can take on in Chapter 5 first free time period: Covering the Cadets. If the player has Rem Tokimiya in the party and gets an S rank they can fulfil a request back at Akademeia.
