When Eyvel from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 first came across a little Mareeta at a slave market, she slaughtered all the traders and guards and promptly adopted the small girl as her own. (If only her in-game stats were better.) Her raging maternal instincts are likely a result of the children she lost after getting amnesia. Her epilogue has her recovering her memories and reuniting with them.
Ayra: "You better not double-cross me, Kinbois, because I'll hunt you down and put your head to a stick! Even if it takes me to the ends of hell! Got it!?"
- Also, even if she's going through horrifying times in between generations, Tailto of Freege is not gonna let her child Teeny take abuse from her sister-in-law, Hilda. This ends up backfiring, though: Tailto does manage to save Teeny from physical torture by taking it herself, but it ends up killing her in the end, and this does nothing on Teeny's psychology that she became shy and withdrawn even if she lived.
- Basically the reason why Cuan's mother Alfiona told Finn to ask Princess Raquesis for help to protect Leif in the back-story of Leonster's fall. Lachesis is a Master Knight, that is canonically an extremely skilled fighter able to use nearly any weapon, and would have her very young daughter Nanna to protect (not to mention, Nanna is all but stated to be Finn's daughter) , making her even stronger in the opinion of Lady Alfiona. And it mostly worked, with Raquesis as quite the Parental Substitute for Leif before disappearing in her way to retrieve her son Delmud.
