"I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve!"
Chrom's tomboyish little sister, the Princess of Ylisse. With nary an ounce of snobbery in her nature, she is among the most likeable and approachable of the Shepherds. The girl most likely to snort. Her birthday is March 6th.
- Almighty Mom: This is apparently the case with Owain, who pretends to be cursed with the uncontrollable power of his Heroic Lineage in his C support with his father.
Owain's father: All right, Son, just stay where you are- I'll get your mother!
*Owain's father goes off-screen*
: Given a moment, I'm sure it will abate! I've weathered far worse than... Er, Father? ... ACK!
Did he actually go to get Mother?! Suddenly I don't feel so well...
- Aluminum Christmas Trees: It was never used in battle (and certainly wasn't intended to), but the impractical-looking hoop skirt she wears (and by extension, anyone else you choose to make into a cleric or a war cleric) really exists. It's called a crinoline.
- Always Someone Better: She, like Chrom, considers Emmeryn to be much better than her in everything. To a lesser extent, she also feels this way about Chrom, since he's a capable fighter and leader and she is not.
- Anime Hair: The hair of her pigtails seem to curl in rather bizarre directions.
- Apologetic Attacker: One of her post-fight quotes is a very innocent-sounding "I'm sorry!"
- Badass: After promoting.
- Battle Ballgown: The metal frame under her skirt seems to also be designed for protective purposes.
- Battle Couple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio as well as the male SpotPass characters. She supports the fastest with Vaike however, as he both admires Emmeryn and is Chrom's Friendly Rival.
- Big Sister Worship: She idolizes Emmeryn and desires to be a Proper Lady just like her.
- Her robes as a Sage is even the same color scheme as Emmeryn's — green and yellow.
- Birthmark of Destiny: The Mark of Naga... supposedly. It turns out she doesn't have one, and it was implied that she feared that she was a bastard child until her son was born with the mark.
- Bodyguard Crush: If paired with Lon'qu or Frederick. In Frederick's supports, she mentions that he was her First Love.
- Character Development: She goes from complaining about having to camp outside in the beginning to a battle-hardened warrior near the end.
- Childhood Friend Romance: Probably with Vaike.
- Crash-Into Hello: According to the comics, she found the Avatar by tripping over their unconscious body.
- First Girl Wins: If paired with the Male Avatar.
- Genki Girl: She's very upbeat, and Inigo describes her as a social butterfly.
- Girlish Pigtails: Simple, seemingly hastily done pigtails, in contrast to Maribelle's Ojou Ringlets.
- The Glomp: Does this to Owain in their A support:
Owain: Gah, just p-please stop...hugging too tight... C-can't...breathe...
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Very open-hearted and well-intentioned, though she can occasionally veer into childish antics.
- The Heart: According to Chrom and Lon'qu, her greatest asset to the Shepherds is her ability to keep the army in high spirits.
- Heroic Lineage: Like her brother Chrom, Lissa is a distant descendant of Marth's.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Maribelle.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: Her supports with Chrom reveal that she is envious of how amazing her siblings are and wishes that she was as important as them.
Lissa: Oh, puh-leeeeeeese! No one would care if something happened to me. Someone stronger would just roll my corpse out of the way and take up the fight...
- Lethal Chef: Her "rainbow" filling pie caused Kellam to faint.
- Little Miss Snarker: She has her moments, especially when characters like Frederick and Virion give her plenty to work with.
- Magikarp Power: Starting off as a Cleric makes her so squishy she can die in one turn and leveliing her up takes time and effort. However, if she promotes to a Sage, she can become one of the most powerful magic users in the entire game. Sure, it doesn't look as unique as the NUNSWITHAXES thing, but still she kicks some ass.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Her supports with Frederick pretty much revolve around butting into his routine and then getting him to loosen up a bit.
- Modest Royalty: She doesn't like to be called by titles and prefers to be on a First Name Basis with everyone.
- Naïve Newcomer: Lissa is very new to the Shepherds; the trip where she and Chrom found the Avatar was her first mission as part of the army. As such, she is initially quite fussy about trekking it in the outdoors and complains frequently about training, and one of the comics is centered on her first days as a Shepherd... and finding the Avatar by crashing on his/her unconscious body.
- Nice Hat: Buttons.
- The party hat in the Harvest Scramble DLC map. She gets to keep it during the remainder of the map during conversations AND battle model, which doubles as Gameplay and Story Integration.
- Older Than They Look: She's actually sixteen years old in the early stages of the game, despite looking about fourteen to viewers - Supplementary material reveals that she's 3 years younger than Chrom, who in turn is 5 years junior to Emmeryn. In addition, Chrom makes a telling comment in Chapter 6 that marks Emmeryn at 24-25 years of age (that she ascended to the throne fifteen years prior, before she was even ten - and her birthday is in December). Lissa is confirmed to be older than Donnel - who according to her is one of few Shepherds who is her junior, his birthday falling 3 months after hers - and all-but-stated to be older than Ricken.
- Even moreso after the two-year Time Skip - since nobody's portrait changes, she looks the same despite being at least 18 years old.
- Palette Swap: Her Cleric and War Cleric dresses are yellow, while her Sage robe is identical to Emmeryn's.
- Plucky Girl: By the end of the game, Lissa will have been through a lot of crap, but she never loses her optimism.
- The Prankster: Gets into pranking the Avatar in their supports. They get back at her in the A support
- Loving Bully: If she reaches S Rank with a Male Avatar, she reveals that she likes him and was doing it to get his attention.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
"You asked for it!"
"This one might hurt!"
"This might surprise you!"
"Clear a path, everyone!"
- Protectorate: She is watched over by Frederick, Lon'qu, and even Maribelle gets in on the protecting.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Maribelle.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Lissa willingly joined the Shepherds to protect Ylisse alongside her brother, though she does complain frequently about the hard knocks of soldier life.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Forms a pair with Lon'qu, who tries to keep Lissa at bay while bodyguarding her, despite her repeated attempts to befriend him.
- Also happens in her supports with Gaius.
- Sleep Cute: With Henry in their A-Support.
- Spoiled Sweet: Despite having grown up in the luxurious royal palace, Lissa loves associating with her lower-class comrades.
- Squishy Wizard: Her stat modifiers lean towards this, getting good magic and resistance, but low strength and defense, complementing the Sage class very well.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Lissa is quick to remind that she is not "delicate", and despite her inexperience she proves this early on. She's also more likely to snort than any other woman in the army and doesn't like to stick her pinky finger out when drinking tea, propriety be damned. On the other hand, she does enjoy shopping and wearing dresses, prefers healing to harming (though she's willing to do the latter for the sake of family and friends), and looks up to Emmeryn enough that she wishes to emulate her in being a Proper Lady (not that she likes everyone just knowing this). She strikes the fine balance between traditional femininity and "tomboyishness" quite well.
- Took a Level in Badass: Should she promote or otherwise reclass. Only then can Lissa's Pre-Mortem One-Liners be heard.
- In a support-increasing tile with her son Owain, her son mentions that during training, she beat him up a lot.
- Uptown Girl: If paired with guys like Donnel, Vaike, Gaius, or Kellam.
- White Magician Girl
- White Mage: What she starts out as.
- An Axe to Grind: Unbelievably, she can be an axe-wielder if you promote her to War Cleric!
- Red Mage: If you promote her to Sage, she can use tomes along with staves.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She fears ghosts, bugs, snakes and amphibians, darkness, long finger nails, and... lemons.
"Turns out the business end of my sword is me!"
A no-nonsense, capable Shepherd with a mouth that would make brigands blush. Ylissean women admire her strength and call her "The Woman to End All Men". The last one you want cooking. Her birthday is December 5th.
Voiced by: Momoko Ohara (Japanese), Amanda C. Miller (English)
"I am a staunch believer in amelioration."
A grandiloquent but fastidious Shepherd who waxes wroth if so much as a single arrow sits askew in its quiver. She adores research and obsesses over her object of study. The most superfluous packer. Her birthday is February 12th.
Yurika Aizawa (Japanese), Tara Platt
- Ambiguous Disorder: Due to some of her character tics note , some fans believe she may be an Autistic Savant.
- Badass Bookworm: She spends a great deal of her free time with her nose in a book. Her favorite piece is a book of theories written by her late mother.
- Badass Boast: In the first Champions of Yore DLC, Miriel proposes dissecting Lilina.
Lilina: "What?! I'm not some frog for you to pick apart!"
Miriel: "No, of course not. I have no interest in frogs. But come at me anyway. Let us see whether or not you croak."
- Battle Couple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio as well as the male SpotPass characters. She supports the fastest with Stahl.
- Black Mage: As a Mage, Miriel can cast offensive magic.
- Catch Phrase: "Fascinating."
- Creepy Good: Not quite to the extent of Tharja, but Miriel is not above threatening to fuse weapons to people's arms so they won't forget them, or taking rather extreme measures in her study of magic (see For Science! below).
- Deadpan Snarker: "Asinine Knave."
- Elemental Powers: Able to wield magic tomes.
- For Science!: She considers dissecting Lilina to study the source of her magic, for one... To be fair, the Lilina in question isn't a real person but a representation of the real one.
- She also puts statues of women in Lon'qu's tent in their B support to see if he is afraid of them as he is with live women.
- Glass Cannon: A magical one thanks to her modifiers. Great magic and decent skill and speed at the cost of defense and strength (the latter of which won't matter much to her).
- Hot Witch: A mostly benevolent one.
- In Harm's Way: In her supports with Lon'qu, she never tries to avoid the dangers that she's exposed to, if she even notices them at all. Partly because she knows that he will save her, but mostly because she wants to study the effects of his gynophobia.
- The Lab Rat: She's always off analyzing something or other. Whether or not her research has practical applications is another story entirely.
- Life Drain: Through Life Absorb, if she promotes to Dark Knight.
- May-December Romance: If she marries Ricken or Donnel.
- Meganekko: One of the few Fire Emblem characters to be bespectacled.
- Mundane Utility: In a support with Ricken, Miriel uses Thunder as the power source for an electroplating experiment.
- Mystery of the Week: The general theme of her supports. Most of the supposed mysteries are Miriel just overthinking things. These topics include gravity, the colors different elements burn, and why nobody can see Kellam.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Her intelligence and quirkiness are mentioned to be a few of her best traits in some of her S Supports.
- Never Found the Body: In her conversation with Laurent in Future Past 3, he reveals that her body was never found and he kept hoping that one day he'd find her. Seeing Present!Miriel will allow him to let go and move on.
- Nice Hat: Minerva even thinks so, according to Miriel's support with Cherche.
- Odd Friendship: Has platonic supports with both Sully and Cherche.
- Palette Swap: Her Sage's robe is black instead of the usual blue, and has a different collar design as well.
- The Perfectionist: She can become quite obsessive with her experiments, unable to stop thinking about them until she dissects every detail.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
"Begone, foul miscreation!"
"Your demise is nigh!"
"Desist at once!"
- Robe and Wizard Hat: Awakening's Mages now wear a more classic-looking "wizard hat." Miriel's hat has an especially large brim.
- Recurring Element: Her For Science! attitude, single-minded pursuit of her study, and her confusion when her love interests propose to her make her the stand-in for Lute.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Her battle sprite.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Have a dictionary handy when she starts talking, you will probably need it.
- Show Some Leg: In their C Support, Miriel was able to use her being a woman to exploit Virion's chivalry, forcing him to assist her.
- Spock Speak: She never uses slang or curses, she never jokes around, and she never gets to the point, as Sully can testify.
- The Stoic: She does not seem capable of expressing strong emotions, though she does derive some enjoyment from performing science.
- Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: Pretty much treats magic like a science, and uses magic to discover real science.
- Take My Hand: In her supports with Kellam, she gets him to help her experiment on his phenomenon of seemingly disappearing even in plain sight. She holds his hand to try and figure out the how and why it happens. By their A support, her holding his hand becomes much more than just an experiment.
- What Is This Thing You Call Love?: A few of her S supports give this vibe, particularly Frederick's, in which she tries to rationalise why she feels angry when he's around other girls.
"Look at all that you can accomplish if you try."
An absent-minded, klutzy Shepherd with a shocking lack of self-worth. However, she exhibits one-of-a-kind talent when it comes to working with animals. The best at tripping over nothing. Her birthday is November 24th.
Class: Pegasus Knight
- Adorkable: She so clumsy, yet tries so hard...
- Apologetic Attacker: Occasionally when she Dual Strikes.
- Apologises a Lot: It's her shopping quote!
- Battle Couple: She can be paired with Male Avatar, Chrom (her fastest support, in gameplay), Frederick, Gaius, and Henry.
- Beware the Nice Ones: It's difficult to imagine someone this sweet makes a living skewering enemies with her lance.
- Be Yourself: In her A rank support conversation, the Avatar said that she's fine the way she is and need not to emulate and behave like the heroines in the novels that she reads. This, however, leads her to believe that the next novel she reads should be about a heroine who's as clumsy and plain as she is. Although her S rank conversation with a male Avatar shows that she thought about it and realized he was right.
- Blade on a Stick
- Magic Knight: A flying version if promoted to Dark Flier. Is a flying Combat Medic version instead if promoted to Falcon Knight.
- Covert Pervert: She gets quite excited by the idea of Sully entering a cross-dressing pageant (with a rather epic rant about the female body included), and teases Frederick during their own S Support about his... rather strong devotion to Chrom.
- Cute Bookworm: Her support with Avatar shows she LOVES to read novels. Although in her case it's more for escaping reality.
- Canon Welding: One of the books she reads is called "The Genealogy of the Holy War". The English version hilariously changed this to the "Ribald Tales of the Faith War" instead.
- Custom Uniform: Her Pegasus Knight dress, along with Cordelia's and Cynthia's, all have a unique pattern, and all three of them also wear short shorts underneath. Extends to her Falcon Knight outfit, which is the same mauve that her regular outfit is.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Sumia has a habit of tripping over her own feet and any task she is involved in typically ends in disaster — except for fighting. She apparently has no problem fighting.
- Declaration of Protection: "I make sure everyone is safe and sound. Nothing hurts like losing a comrade."
- Deconstructed Trope: Her moe and Cute Clumsy Girl traits, while amusing, are actually both the cause and the consequences of severe self-esteem problems for her.
- Disc One Nuke: In difficulties other than Lunatic and Lunatic+. Sumia's has a high speed that is enough to double attack anything short of bosses, even without Pair Up, during the time where every other unit might have problems doubling enemies. This, combined with Flying capability, means that a Sumia Paired Up with Frederick is likely your best unit for the first half of the game.
- Dork Knight: Brave, loyal, strong... and kind of a ditz.
- Escapism: The reason why reading is one of her hobbies is because she can pretend to be the protagonist of the novel instead of her usual clumsy self. Her supports with both Avatars show them being concerned about this, and her S rank support with a male Avatar has her admit it and decide to stop in order to better herself.
- Fragile Speedster: Her modifiers lean her towards this, getting good skill and great speed, at the cost of defense and strength.
- Friend to All Living Things: She has an uncanny ability to communicate with animals and she gets along quite well with them...except for cows, which annoy her.
- Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Tries to do this to Chrom, with an Armor-Piercing Slap, but accidentally punches him instead.
- Girly Bruiser: Although her demure demeanor would suggest otherwise, Sumia has no problem kicking ass with the rest.
- Good Is Not Dumb/Good Is Not Soft: Even with all of her ditzy spells, she doesn't hesitate to help out with her trusty lance and pegasus whenever she can.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: "Oh, HORSE PLOP!"
- Graceful in Their Element: A disaster on land, but get her on her pegasus...
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her Pegasus Knight outfits features purple, an allusion to her femininity and noble status.
- Hair Decorations: Beaded hairbands and wings for her ponytail.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Even though she's arguably one of the best Pegasus Knights in the game, she still has a severe inferiority complex due to her blatant klutziness. Most of her Supports, such as with Henry and the Avatar, are about her trying to deal with it.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: She finds out in her supports with Cynthia that she is a legendary pegasus knight in the future, known for violently destroying friend and foe alike. She resolves to tread carefully with any historians she happens to meet from then on.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Cordelia.
- Innocent Flower Girl: Played with. Sumia is an avid practitioner of flower fortunes.
- Loves Me Not: She likes to use flower fortunes to predict whether she survives the next battle or not. Even if she gets a bad fortune, she just repeats it until she gets a good one. In some of her endings, her fortunes actually become well-known as a bringers of good luck.
- Hidden Depths: In her A rank support with Cordelia. she affirms that, in fact, she doesn't care whether her flower fortunes are correct or not. She just uses them to motivate herself to create the best possible future. Cordelia responds by saying that's "the most reasonable nonsense" she's ever heard.
- Instant Expert: Although it's likely Sumia already possessed equestrian skills from the beginning, almost immediately after meeting and befriending her pegasus, she was somehow able to expertly ride it.
- She did mention Philia saying that pegasi are very weak to arrows and wind magic, so it's possible that she was previously interested in riding them and took some private lessons.
- The Millstone: In her Supports with Gaius, she screws up his attempts at finding honey. Later, she generously helps him get honey... by giving him a beehive while the bees are still chasing her.
- Nice Girl: Sumia is an absolute sweetheart. She seems to care for and love everyone. Except for cows. Cows annoy her.
- Ojou: Implied by Gaius, who refers to her as "that crazy noblewoman" in their supports.
- Ojou Ringlets: Parts of her hair are curled this way.
- Opposites Attract: She's kind, sweet, and unassuming. Henry is creepy, snarky, and weird. Of course, the game allows you to pair them if you want to.
- Plucky Girl: Sumia is a ditzy, hopeless klutz and she knows it, but, as Gaius notes, that doesn't stop her from always trying her best, even if she looks like a total fool in the process.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
- Rapunzel Hair: Waist-long, wavy hair plus Ojou Ringlets to boot.
- Rescue Romance: If Chrom is not paired with another girl, their cutscene in chapter 3 has shades of this. In an interesting twist, it's Sumia doing the rescuing!
- Ship Tease: Aside of the Female Avatar, she's the one who gets the most of this with Chrom.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Sweet and unassuming out of battle. Hyper-competent in battle. Hyper-protective of those she cares for in and out of it.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: All of her possible husbands are nice guys in some way. Yes, even Henry, in his own weird way.
- Through His Stomach: She bakes Chrom a pie in their B Support with this intent. Also, she will try baking another pie for Gaius in their S support.
- For her "gift" event tile, should she be married to any of her prospect boyfriends (Chrom, Frederick, a male Avatar, Gaius and/or Henry), Sumia will also prepare lunch for whoever her husband is. Of course, she ends up dropping it twice, but it's the thought that counts.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to either Sully or Cordelia's Tomboy.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: They're not visible in the game, but concept art◊ suggests that she wears them underneath her minidress.
- You Meddling Kids: Parodied and ultimately subverted. In the Summer Scramble DLC, Miriel assumes that Sumia's klutzy attitude is nothing but a trap for Sumia to attract the attention of men. Sumia denies this until Miriel brings decisive evidence during her entire observation process. Then, Sumia laughs maniacally and admits that she's truly is acting like a klutz to get attention (saying a variation of this trope), and then she decides to silence Miriel forever so that nobody else finds out about her secret. However, it turns out to have been just a big heatstroke-induced delusion on Miriel's part due to the warmth of the beach exhausting her.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A.
"I won't be satisfied until I'm the very best!"
Lissa's best friend. A proud and sharp-tongued noble from one of Ylisse's most well-to-do houses. She is cold to strangers, particularly commoners, but warms quickly. The most likely to toss in her sleep. Her birthday is April 14th.
Hiromi Igarashi (Japanese), Melissa Fahn
Panne (Velvet / Palne)
"My strength is that of all Taguel!"
A nationless shapeshifter and the last of the taguel. While cool and sensible by nature, she shows little interest in finding a partner and remedying the fate of her race. The fastest at wolfing down a meal. Her birthday is November 8.
Voiced by: Yuki Masuda
(Japanese), Jessica Gee (English)
"I am yours to mold as you see fit."
An Ylissean pegasus knight who has been friends with Sumia since childhood. Her beauty, skill, and record are surpassed by few, but she cannot seem to win Chrom's heart. The deepest, most frequent sigher. Her birthday is July 7th.
Class: Pegasus Knight
"Yeah! Don't even think of messing with Nowi!"
A manakete from no land in particular. While she looks young and likes to play outside with children, she is actually over 1,000 years and counting. The biggest oversleeper. Her birthday is September 21st.
Voiced by: Kumi Tanaka (Japanese), Hunter Mackenzie Austin (English)
- Badass Adorable: She can turn into a dragon and lay waste to the enemy. Not only that, but when she joins your party, she comes equipped with a dragonstone, meaning it's the first attack you see her execute. One hell of an introduction.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit doesn't cover much.
- Battle Couple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio as well as the male SpotPass characters. Her fastest support is with Gregor.
- Bullying a Dragon: A literal dragon, in Nowi's case. The slavers that captured her prior to her meeting the party know of her transformation abilities, yet still somehow thought it was a good idea to attack her.
- Chainmail Bikini: Seems to be composed of scales, and likely her own.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Has more than a few elements of this, to the point where Nah wonders what her dad saw in her.
- Depending on the Writer: Supports say Nowi breathes fire, but her animations depict her with misty breath similar to Tiki, and the special Awakening comic says Nowi's breath is slushy rather then firey.
- Idiot Hair: Nowi always has one bang standing up, hinting at her absentminded innocence.
Nah: What do you like about her, anyway? You're so serious and responsible, and she runs around like a headless chicken!
- Genki Girl: A Deconstruction of being Really 700 Years Old. What happens when you have near eternal life? Nowi chooses to spend her days happy rather than depressed by the fact that she will outlive all of her friends. She doesn't qualify as a Stepford Smiler since, despite how she hurts over the eternal life deal, she never really hides her pain.
- Giant Waist Ribbon: One on both sides.
- Hates Being Alone: She's so outgoing because her greatest fear is being all alone.
- Hidden Depths: When she bothers to show her mature side, Nowi is actually a lot more savvy than she lets on.
- Immortal Immaturity: Subverted. She acts like a happy child to help her cope with her very long lifespan.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: With the aid of a Dragonstone, she can take on her Dragon form, allowing her to beat the crap out of most enemies with ease.
- Junior Counterpart: Of Tiki. She has the exact same childish appearance and mannerisms that the latter showed in the original series.
- Last of Her Kind: While there are other manaketes in the world, they're very rare, and lacking the companionship of her own kind has definitely affected Nowi.
- Made a Slave: Prior to being recruited, Nowi was sold into slavery, where she was forced to transform and do other "tricks".
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: In her supports with Libra.
- May-December Romance: No matter who she marries, this is inevitable. For example, Ricken looks about the same age as her when they marry, but the epilogue tells of a future where he inevitably ages much faster and people talk about this behind his back.
- Mayfly-December Romance: Also inevitable, thanks to the lengthy lifespans of Manaketes. Referenced in several of the S-rank supports, specially the ones with Ricken where she straight-up asks him if he's up to the task of being with a girl who will not age as he does...
- Moveset Clone: Has the same skillset of Tiki including effectiveness against dragons, and use of what resemble Divine Stones. Whether this is because Nowi is somehow another surviving Divine Dragon or gameplay is unclear.
- Mighty Glacier: Her modifiers are very much geared towards this, more than even Frederick and Kellam.
- Mundane Utility: In Nowi's A support with the Avatar, Nowi uses her Dragonstone to attack a snake. By throwing it at the snake. She didn't know it was her Dragonstone until she'd already thrown it, but still. Needless to say, the Avatar and her then have to find it.
- Never Grew Up: Physically, and maybe even mentally too, except...
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She looks and acts like a little girl pretty much all the time, but more than a few of her supports (particularly with Nah) will remind you that she really is over a thousand years old.
- Odd Friendship: She has a platonic support with Tharja, and they get along pretty well, at least by Tharja's standards.
- One of the Kids: She's at least a thousand years old and she likes to play with kids a lot, and she's very child-like in behavior. If she romances Henry, he says he's giving her kids to give her Manakete playmates.
- This is implied to be the reason that Lon'qu isn't afraid of her, since despite being old enough to be considered a woman, she certainly doesn't come across as one.
- Pointy Ears: One of the clear indicators that she is not your typical little girl.
- Plucky Girl: A thousand years would be a real drag for anyone who isn't plucky.
- Power Echoes: Like Panne, Nowi's voice echoes when she's transformed.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
"You stupid bully!"
"I'm gonna crush you!"
"Who do you think I am?"
- Punny Name: Nowi sounds like "no way".
- Really 700 Years Old: More like over a thousand, she is a dragon after all. Still looks like a child though.
- Rescue Romance: If paired with Gregor.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: This pair would be the smallest female with one of the burliest guys in the game. It can also happen with guys like Lon'qu, Stahl, Vaike, Gaius, or a Build 3 ("older man") Avatar.
- Stripperiffic: Inexplicably, she has the most revealing outfit in the game. It would be an Age-Inappropriate Dress if it weren't for her being several hundred years old.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Energetic Girl to Lon'qu, Gaius and Gregor's Savvy Guy.
- Super Drowning Skills: According to the Summer Scramble DLC she can't swim, much to her own embarrassment. Seems to run in the family, as Nah has a similar problem.
- Third-Person Person: In the Japanese version. Significantly toned down in the English dub.
- Tomboyish Ponytail: The hair of her ponytail actually flairs in random directions, giving it a majestic appearance, similar to the wings of her dragon form.
- Too Awesome to Use: Finally averted, since Dragonstones in Awakening can be reliably purchased from Port Ferox past a certain point. They do cost 2300 gold each, though, which means that the average player can't stock up on them immediately.
- Trickster Mentor: From stealing Nah's dragonstone to demanding she play with her rather than allowing her to study, it seems at first that Nowi's just being her usual childish self. In actuality, she eventually points out that Nah was overusing her dragonstone and was risking wearing herself out due to her (for a Manakete) young age, and that doing nothing but studying had given her poor stamina.
- Voluntary Shapeshifter: As a Manakete, Nowi can transform into a dragon form.
- Magic Pants: Naturally, her clothes are perfectly fine when she reverts.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Discussed. Nowi occasionally shows resentment toward her long life span, since virtually everyone she befriends will end up dying long before her.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: A pink, little pair for the little lady.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A bright green, quite similar to her dragon scales.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A
"I can feel the darkness growing ever stronger..."
A mopey Plegian dark mage with a jealous streak. She usually keeps to herself and chants disturbing hexes, but openly stalks the Avatar (aka you - the player), in whom she has an unhealthy interest. The one with the darkest thoughts. note
Her birthday is April 2nd.
Class: Dark Mage
"Everyone's staring! How embarassing..."
A shy, introverted caravan dancer who goes above and beyond to help others. Despite her stage fright, she is unparalleled in her craft and has admirers around the world. The most mesmerising singer. Her birthday is August 20th.
- After Action Patch Up: With Henry.
- Apologetic Attacker: She tends to apologize after killing someone, whether it was a normal attack, a critical hit, or even Lethality.
- Apologises a Lot: To the point that Vaike tells her in their A support to stop apologizing so they can have an actual conversation.
- Badass Adorable: Although she's averse to violence, Olivia is actually a decent fencer, and can become a useful fighter in her own right if enough effort is dedicated towards raising her.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her Dancer attire is reminiscent of a belly dancer.
- Battle Couple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Basilio and the male SpotPass characters. Her fastest support is with Henry, likely because they are among the last of the 1st generation to be recruited.
- Bishie Sparkle: It's an actual part of her Dancer class model.
- Birds of a Feather:
- With Lon'qu. She even mentions in their S support that they are perfect for each other because they both have trouble dealing with other people.
- Surprisingly (or maybe not), with Chrom as well. For a similar reason: both of them are good-hearted, but also awkward as Hell.
- Born Lucky: Her Dancer class comes with the beginning skill of Luck +4.
- Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: In her C-Support with Henry.
Olivia: I know you! You're that creepy kid who likes blood and magic and... blood magic!
- And in her C support with Chrom, she panics and flips through various things to call him, starting with "Milord", then "Chrom", then "Sir", and finally "Sir Milord".
- The Chick: She tries desperately to be this, trying to find ways to be helpful and supportive towards others so that she has more use besides her dancing.
- Cool Sword: The first Dancer in an internationally-released Fire Emblem to be able to effectively fight back.
- The Dev Team Thinks of Everything: If Olivia has 18 Support Points or more with Chrom by the end of Chapter 11, and none of the other candidates have initiated a C Support with him, she will have the highest marriage priority with Chrom (otherwise, she will be the lowest priority). A clever decision, considering how you only have one chapter to build up their support points before Chrom's marriage.
- Fragile Speedster: All of her class options capitalize on high Speed and Skill, but only mediocre Strength and poor defenses. Her modifiers similarly have negatives in Defense and Resistance, but positives in Speed and Skill.
- Green-Eyed Monster: In Summer Scramble, she gets jealous at Tharja's apparent ability to have a perfect figure without any effort.
- Happily Adopted: Basilio is pretty much her adoptive father, and he took her in after fighting off a nobleman who wanted to force her to marry him.
- Hates the Job, Loves the Limelight: An inversion- Olivia loves her job, but gets embarrassed when people stare at her.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Olivia is quick to compliment others, but she rarely has anything nice to say about herself.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: During The Reveal, if she's Chrom's wife, she thinks that Chrom is cheating on her with Lucina. Mostly Played for Laughs, though.
Olivia: It's alright. She's beautiful and your happiness should come first... WAAAAAAAHHH!!!
- Irony: She's a Shrinking Violet whose passion is sensual dancing in front of a public.
- Last Girl Wins: Up to Eleven if paired with Chrom. She joins in the very chapter Chrom is forced to marry someone, meaning you have to pretty much keep them glued to each other the entire mission, you can't initiate any romantic support conversation until Chrom's marriage (or make sure all of his other potential love interests are already paired up with other men), in order to pair them.
: "Turn my back one minute and you're married. The next minute? A baby!"
- Love at First Sight: A popular interpretation of her and Chrom's marriage, and one that makes sense considering the circumstances above.
- Luminescent Blush: Hell, she blushes even in her Super Move Portrait Attack.
- Magic Dance: As a Dancer class, her moves are graceful enough to give a soldier the will to kick twice as much ass. She also gains a skill actually called "Special Dance."
- Magikarp Power: Her stat growths as a Swordmaster point to this. She'll end up maxing (or nearly maxing) skill and speed and will get surprisingly high strength (for someone who starts as a Dancer).
- Truth in Television: Professional dancers in real life are very skilled, generally are in great shape, and can be incredibly strong depending on their focus.
- Male Gaze: Most characters' official artwork has them viewed from the front. Olivia's picture up there... isn't.
- Morality Pet: Panne is somewhat nicer to her than she is everyone else in their supports.
- Ms. Fanservice: To her dismay, she is frequently gawked at by men. It's a bizarre case because she loves her profession, but is embarrassed by her "uniform."
- No Social Skills: Aside of being awkward and shy, Olivia sometimes can be slightly judgemental and pushy when she tries to help others. See her supports with Henry.
- Odd Friendship: One of her platonic supports is with Maribelle, who makes some...misguided attempts at making her more confident.
- Performance Anxiety: Even though she's fine using her dance to give her allies an extra turn, she's extremely shy about putting on actual performances in front of others.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
"I can fight too!"
"Oh, let this be over!"
"I didn't want to do this!"
- Rapunzel Hair: In a ponytail with two braids as sidetails.
- Reluctant Fanservice Girl: She wears her Stripperiffic costume because it's a part of her work as a dancer, but in Summer Scramble she refuses to put on a swimsuit.
- Reluctant Warrior: As made clear by her Pre-Mortem One-Liners, Olivia is a dancer first and foremost, and really wants nothing to do with all the violence around her.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Usually too shy, but she is capable of playing this straight. Most prominent when she manages to dance at her best.
- Shrinking Violet: Not excessively so, but Olivia is quite shy. Lampshaded with her title in the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue during the ending credits: Shrinking Violet.
- Stalker Without a Crush: Tries to stalk her son Inigo in order to see him dance.
- Status Buff: Her dances, and her main role. Made even better through a skill of hers.
- Stripperiffic: She seems to be wearing scarves.
- Super Reflexes: Thanks to her high speed and luck (both caps and growths), she'll dodge a lot of attacks thrown her way.
- Taking You with Me: Referenced by her quote in the Roster Rescue DLC.
- Through Her Stomach: In her supports with Gaius.
- Uptown Girl: If paired with Donnel.
- Vocal Dissonance: Rei Matsuzaki gives her a very high and childish-sounding voice, possibly to evoke a sense of innocence within her. Averted in the case of Karen Strassman, who gives her a more mature-sounding (yet still soft and shy) voice.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Notices local Combat Sadomasochist Henry cornering a hurt dog and assumes he's up to no good. What she doesn't know is that Henry loves animals and was trying to help it.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A
Cherche (Serge / Zelcher)
"All in a day's work."
A wyvern rider in the service of House Virion. She was raised with simple values and likes to cook and sew, but loves her "sweet, adorable" wyvern Minerva even more. The most terrifying when angry. Her birthday is October 17th.
Class: Wyvern Rider
Voiced by: Kana Akutsu (Japanese), Amanda C. Miller (English)
"Every sword must be tempered in its time."
The upright and dignified princess of the Chon'sin dynasty. Her old-fashioned speech and manners set her apart from the Ylisseans. She loves her brother Yen'fay fiercely, but is currently his enemy for some reason. It was for her sake that her brother joined Walhart's army. She found out about this after his death. She died in an alternate universe where Yen'fay lives.
The most talented skin diver. Her birthday is January 11th.
"Who wants to get destroyed first?"
Basilio's counterpart, the East-Khan of Ferox. A brave, heroic, and strong-minded woman who yields to no man. She dislikes formalities and treats her opponents equally no matter whom, but also has a side to her that pays attention to her surroundings and an attention to detail. She and Basilio are rivals, but also good friends. Likes doing push ups the most out of the whole army. Her birthday is October 28th.
- Downloadable Content: The two Secret Characters are of the free kind, through Spotpass. You have to enter their Paralogues and fullfill their requirements to actually get them, though.
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: The two Secret Characters, as Anna's Paralogue is available relatively early, and Tiki's comes around the middle. The Spotpass Paralogues don't open up until you're almost done with the game.
- Irrelevant Sidequest: You recruit them through these.
- Late Character Syndrome: The last Spotpass characters subvert this. They start off with ridiculously high bases, growths, modifiers, and a unique combination of skills. They'll catch up with the rest of your units in no time.
- Optional Party Member: The various Paralogue Chapters are all independent missions and not required to complete the main quest.
"Another happy customer."
An enigmatic merchant with a bevy of identical sisters - more than she can count. Like most merchants, she is a smooth-talker who loves both gold and rich customers. The one with the fattest nest egg. Her birthday is June 11th.
Tropes about Awakening
Anna goes here, while tropes about Anna in general goes here
- An Offer You Can't Refuse: Subject to one in her supports with Tiki.
- Battle Couple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
- Born Lucky: Her main statistical asset is a truly incredible Luck growth.
- Crutch Character: Zig-Zagged, along with Frederick, she plays this role. Early game she can dodge almost anything that comes her way. However, mid-game, unless you get a few lucky finds and get a bunch of Levin Swords (or buy them from Spotpass characters), she tapers off a little bit. Late game, she plays as more of a support character, being able to unlock doors and chests, and can heal and rescue units with a staff. (Given she has a high magic base, she'll always heal a decent amount, and possess decent range for Rescue.)
- The Cynic: Downplayed. Her love of money stems from her philosophy that money in this world is ultimate and can buy anything.
- Derailing Love Interests: Averted. She's a romance option for the Avatar, which led to doubts about her relationship with Jake. As it turns out, however, this is a different Anna entirely, so it's all cool.
- Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Attempted in her support conversation with Tiki. She tries to exploit the Valmese people's worship of the "Voice of the Divine Dragon" and said dragon's innocent nature to get rich quick... and almost gets eaten once Tiki figures it out.
- Double Entendre
"Thanks, baby. I love you too. Want to go in the back room and...count gold?"
- Eaten Alive: Almost falls victim to this after using Tiki's star power to make tons of money charging admission and selling merchandise. Anna only manages to placate the angry manakete by promising to give it all to widows, orphans, and animal charities.
- Famous Last Words:
“It's true...what they say... In the end, material possessions mean nothing...”
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She has a miniature teddy bear attached to the hilt of her sword.
- Greed: For Anna, everything begins and ends with money.
- Hurricane of Puns: In a similar manner to Gaius and his sweets, the majority of her battle quotes are related to her profession.
- Jack of All Stats: Her modifiers lean her towards this, her only speciality being her excellent luck. Her starting class is more of a Fragile Speedster, though.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Her supports in general.
- Lucky Seven: Can learn this naturally through her starting class. It raises Hit and Avoid by 20 for 7 turns at the start, but she has to rely on her own skill afterwards.
- Magic Knight: As a Trickster, she can utilize swords and healing staves.
- Massive Numbered Siblings: Combines with Uncanny Family Resemblance, Inexplicably Identical Individuals, and Name's the Same, akin to Nurse Joy. When confronted by the fact that there are those Annas running through the Outrealm Gate to the other Fire Emblem time periods, she says that they are her sisters.
- Memetic Hand Gesture: Resting her index finger on her face, like her sisters.
- Money Fetish: She loves money above all else. Although during her confession, she says that if the Avatar keeps it up that she'll love him more than money. One of her event tile conversations with the Avatar as her husband does indeed have her tell him that she loves him more than money.
- Only in It for the Money: Made clear in her solo ending where she leaves the army as soon as she sees no further business benefit from being with them.
- Palette Swap: A red trickster outfit.
- Plucky Girl: Even when her greed comes back to bite her, Anna never changes who she is or lets it keep her down.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner
"Ready to get gouged?"
"I make deep cuts!"
- The Trickster: She actually tries to exploit and con Tiki, the daughter of their universe's Physical God.
- We Sell Everything: From swords, to elixers, to facial cleansing cream.
A divine dragon from the era of legends. She is revered as the Voice of the Divine Dragon in Valm. Although usually calm, her "little girl" side slips out on rare occasions. Infamous for being a terrible riser.
