    General Tropes 

  • A Day in the Limelight: The Heirs of Fate DLC stars them in an Alternate Universe where their parents died.
  • Alternate Universe: Each kid comes from a different world than the others in Heirs of Fate, where Anankos killed everyone they knew and forces them to participate in combat against each other for his amusement. Male Kana and the children of Nohrian descent came from worlds that chose Conquest, while Female Kana and the Hoshidan children came from worlds that chose Birthright. Shigure is the one exception, coming from the Heirs of Fate world, which is implied to stem from Revelation.
  • Anachronic Order: The game implies that the children were born normally even if they aged abnormally, meaning that all the pregnancies happened offscreen at some point during the adventure without interrupting any missions. If Kana or Shigure end up with siblings, that means their mom went through two pregnancies back to back within a few weeks/months, or that they're twins who either way may end up years apart in age due to growing up in different deeprealms. Or the pregnancies and nursing took place in the Deeprealms, minimizing the maternity leave's impact on the rest of the army.
  • Badass Family: Each one is the child of a Battle Couple.
  • Creature-Breeding Mechanic: Pretty much their primary function, since the Year Inside, Hour Outside justification for their existence has nothing to do with the main plot, unlike the second gen of Awakening who were time travelers trying to avert a Bad Future. Gameplay-wise, they are obtained the same way, by getting first gen to S support and then recruiting them in a paralogue. This time, the unit produced is tied to the father and the hair color comes from the mother, but they both still pass down skills and classes.
  • Demoted to Extra: The second generation as a whole are inconsequential to the story this time around. Contrast to the children of Awakening, who, while mostly optional, still had plot related reasons for appearing and one of them was a major character in the story. However, they get A Day in the Limelight in the Heirs of Fate DLC, which focuses entirely on them.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Kana, Selkie, and Velouria are this by default, but all of them can potentially be this if the Avatar marries their father (or mother, in Shigure's case, with Keaton and Kaden being added).
  • Hero of Another Story: The third batch of DLC has the Heirs of Fate story, where the second generation must succeed where their parents failed.
  • Just Friends: For the first time in the Fire Emblem series, reaching an S-support does not automatically mean romance; some of the kids have decidedly platonic S-supports. It must be noted, however, that is only in the English localization. Even then, the romantic supports usually lead to them being each others' boyfriend/girlfriend, contrast to the Awakening children rushing into marriage.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: In order to save Shigure from sacrificing himself, the other children in Heirs of Fate give up their own memories of their journey together. They forget how they saved their worlds and countless more, along with the friends they've made that they would have never known in their own worlds.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: The children are all linked to their fathers, save for Shigure (Azura) and Male Kana (Female Avatar).
  • Kissing Cousins: Since many of the first generation characters are siblings, it's possible for Kana, Shiro, Siegbert, Forrest, and Kiragi to marry their aunts' children. Also, Shigure and the Female Avatar are cousins by default and can marry each other as well. Asugi and Midori, who are always cousins regardless of who their fathers marry, are the sole exception, being Platonic Life-Partners if they S support (though only in the localized release, in the Japanese script they could marry, as first cousin marriage is much less taboo in Japan).
  • Mama Bear: All of them invoke this or Papa Wolf in their (set) parents. Generally their recruitment paralogues involve danger to them in some shape or form, and their set parent reacting appropriately.
  • May–December Romance: With the exception of Kana, all of them can be romanced by the Avatar, who's old enough to be their parent (and in the female Avatar's case, can be, if she marries their father), Year Inside, Hour Outside notwithstanding.
  • Missing Mom: In Heirs of Fate, the children lament the loss of their fathers, but never even mention their mothers (or vice-versa for male Kana and Shigure). A necessary use of this trope to avoid Cutting Off the Branches, and if they were to use the players pairings, then some of the children could potentially not exist (Kana and/or Nina, if said player went for the Gay Option, or any child from a mixed marriage save for Shigure since he's the only one coming from a Revelations-like world).
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Averted with a vengeance in the localization. Every single child's name is said by their tied parent during their recruitment Paralogue, likely to specifically prevent this.
  • Parents as People: All of them have been left in alternate realities by their parents for their own protection; they could only visit occasionally due to the differences in time and the kids aren't happy for that, but by the end of their supports, they realize that their parents' situations weren't exactly a cakewalk either.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: A number of possible S supports between the second generation characters end with romantic advances being turned down, or romance never even coming up, ending in the characters being this in the English version. This is averted in the Japanese version.
  • Royal Inbreeding: If any of the second generation are children of the Hoshido siblings and they in turn marry the Avatar, then this happens, as they are marrying their blood related aunt/uncle. Of course, the player knows that they are not actually blood related, but there is no way for the Avatar to both know this and still marry their sibling's child.
  • Shared Family Quirks: As in the Japanese release of Awakening, the children's crit/skill quotes are based off of their father's (or mother's in male Kana's and Shigure's case), sometimes saying them verbatim. The Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC also allows them to have a conversation with their non-tied parent which reveals that they inherited a quirk from them.
  • Schrödinger's Player Character: Kana will always be the gender opposite the Avatar's, meaning that you can only have one of them. This is averted in the Heirs of Fate DLC, where the two meet, each armed with their father's/mother's Yato, which they later awaken into Omega Yato in the climactic battle.
  • Ship Sinking: Not all their S-supports end in a Relationship Upgrade, for whatever reason or another.
  • Sibling Team: Any of the kids can form a team with their brothers Kana or Shigure using the Pair Up mechanic, as long as their mother is a female Avatar or Azura, respectively.
  • Sole Survivor: All twenty two of them are this in Heirs of Fate. In a twist, they are each the single survivor of their own world that Anankos conquered.
  • Take Up My Sword: In Heirs of Fate, the children who are royals by default end up inheriting their fallen parents' regalia weapons, with Shigure inheriting Azura's song and pendant. Percy also comes armed with an Arthur's Axe.
  • Theme Naming: The Japanese names of many of the Hoshido children are based on many IJN ships.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Well, obviously, they can upgrade their classes once they hit L20. But the later the player comes to their chapters, the higher their starting levels are, up to and including L20. This also means they'll have an Offspring Seal in their inventory, which allows them to upgrade to an advanced class at a higher level (and maintain the stat boosts they'd get from leveling up normally).
  • Warrior Prince: Both Kanas, Shigure, Siegbert, Shiro, Forrest, and Kiragi are this by default, but any of the other kids can possibly be the child of the Avatar, Azura, Camilla, Hinoka, Elise, or Sakura, naturally making them this. Ophelia, as Odin/Owain's daughter, also technically counts.
    • The Kanas are particularly notable because they're the prince/princess of two nations, Nohr and Hoshido. Three if you count Valla and four if Kana's father or mother is Odin or Ophelia respectively.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: In chapter 5 of Heirs of Fate, the Nohr and Hoshido children begin to fight and argue amongst themselves due to learning they came from worlds where Leo/Hinoka became King/Queen, and where some of their parents died. Downplayed, as they end up eventually getting over it as they are forced to work together and start getting along again.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Most of them are not pleased that their parents sent them into another dimension, though how displeased they are and how long they're content to stay there varies from child to child.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Most of them develop complexes about how little they see their parents.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: In order to protect their children, the parents of each child sends them inside a Pocket Dimension... but due to differences in time passage, the kids come out aged up, and sometimes their physical/mental growth will vary from kid to kid (i.e. Ignatius, Dwyer, Shiro, Caeldori, and Asugi look like they're in their late teens, whereas Midori and Percy (and possibly, both Kanas) are still pre-teens). If their mother happens to be Sakura or Elise, or the father is Hayato (for Shigure and Rhajat), they will actually come out older than they are (with the possible exceptions of Percy, Midori, and Kana, who are at least around the same age).

Child Characters recruitable in all routes:

    Kana (Kanna)

Male Kana
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_60.png
Female Kana
Click here to see both Kanas in Fire Emblem Heroes 
"You look upset, Papa/Mama. I didn't mean to do it. I only wanted to protect you! But I'm small. And I felt...useless."

The child of the Avatar, whose gender is always the opposite of their parent. Though they are cheerful, obedient, and energetic, they are actually a quite lonely person who (especially in the case with Female Kana) cries often. They enjoy the fact that they're dragons. Their birthday is April 19th.

Just like their parent, their personality is different depending on gender, though the changes are more drastic. The female Kana is peppy, energetic, and loves helping others in any way she can, but is also more childish, can be a bit of a ditz, and cries more often. The male Kana is a bit more mature and willing to take on responsibilities, but also feels the need to prove himself to others (especially his mother). In the Heirs of Fate DLC, Kana becomes the wielder of the Yato.

Class: Nohr Prince/Princess, Nohr Noble (male, Heirs of Fate: V and End), Hoshido Noble (female, Heirs of Fate: V and End)
Male Kana voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Japanese), Laura Faye Smith (English, Fire Emblem Fates), Sandy Fox (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
Female Kana voiced by: Satomi Sato (Japanese), Danielle Judovits (English, Fire Emblem Fates), Eden Riegel (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)

  • AcCENT upon the Wrong SylLABle: Female Kana calls her father "pa-PA", using an archaic but still not technically wrong pronunciation.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Neither of them likes being treated like a little kid and really wants to be allowed to fight and protect their father/mother, despite their young age. Male Kana in particular goes out his way to do chores and patrols just to prove his maturity. They also use surprisingly complex vocabulary for their age and worry about their friends' Character Tics, such as when Male Kana balks at Velouria eating food off the floor and tries to get her to stop.
  • Affectionate Nickname:
    • The female Avatar refers to male Kana as "Kana-bean".
    • If Izana is Kana's father, he likes to refer to him as "Squishbubble," "Kana Kabana," "Kana-bun," "Kanabee," and "Kan-o." "Squishbubble" is the one that appears more than once, however.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: In the localization, male Kana's S-supports with Sophie, Caeldori, Velouria, and Soleil have him asking them to be his girlfriend or declaring he has a crush on them, but the girls reply that they're better off just being friends. While initially upset Kana does quickly get over it. Male Kana does have some options that either are explicitly romantic, or implied romantic, but most of the time male Kana seems to be more interested in friendship than romance anyway.
  • Alternate Self: Both Kanas meet in Heirs of Fate. The boy comes from a Birthright timeline, while the girl comes from Conquest.
  • Apologetic Attacker: They'll sometimes say sorry after killing/knocking out an enemy.
  • Badass Adorable: Small and cute, but still able to expertly fight and utilize their dragon abilities.
  • Battle Couple: They can S-support with the other kids, but in the localized version, most of them end with them being Just Friends. While some of their platonic relationships imply that it could develop into a romantic relationship in the future (i.e, Mitama, and Ophelia (male) Asugi, Hisame, Percy, and Siegbert (female). The only people the Kana's end up explicitly romantically involved with are Kiragi (for the female) and Selkie (for the male), as well as Nina and Rhajat in his paired endings with them.
  • Birds of a Feather: Male Kana and Selkie, who hit it off immediately and bond over their shared ability to transform (while both thinking the other's transformation is cool) as well as their similar, unashamedly silly personalities. This is the main reason why Selkie is the only S-Support Male Kana has who immediately returns his affections after his love confession.
  • Birthmark of Destiny: Is shown to have inherited the Mark of Naga in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC, if Odin or Ophelia is their parent.
  • Cheerful Child: Subverted. Kana is said to be very happy but also lonely, and female Kana is especially prone to tears over this.
  • Childhood Friend Romance:
    • Only Kiragi/female Kana and Selkie/male Kana will get together right from the moment the love confessions are given.
    • Male Kana's endings with Nina and Rhajat confirm that they eventually get together, his S-Rank with Ophelia has a lot of romantic subtext, and the S-Rank with Mitama ends up with them agreeing to what can be seen as either a friendly outing or a romantic date. In female Kana's S-supports with Asugi, Hisame, Percy, and Siegbert they all promise to stay together with her forever. Judging on the way they are blushing they could be indirectly promising a romantic future.
  • Childhood Marriage Promise: Female Kana's S-support with Kiragi ends with them promising to get married once they get old enough.
  • Cute Monster Boy: Male Kana is adorable. He can also turn into a monstrously powerful dragon. If his father is Keaton or Kaden, he can also be a Wolfskin or a Kitsune.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Especially if Kana's mothers are Velouria or Selkie, she can become a Wolfkin or Kitsune.
  • Daddy's Girl: Female Kana dearly loves her papa, and tries to spend as much time with him as possible.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Just like their parents, Kana isn't too big on the whole "shoe" thing.
  • Everybody Hates Math: Female Kana struggles with math in her supports with Siegbert.
  • Expy: Of Morgan in Awakening. They are the children of the Avatars of their respective games. The girl is peppy and emotional, while the boy is more relaxed and thoughtful.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "I... love you, Mama/Papa.."
    Heirs of Fate Kana: "Sorry, everyone... Sorry, Shigure... Papa/Mama... I really tried... So please... Let me see your face... one more time..."
  • Gender-Blender Name: In the English release, their name "Kana" is a completely feminine name, meaning that Male Kana is saddled with a girl's name.
  • Genki Girl: Female Kana is young, childish, and very energetic.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Depending on who the Avatar marries, they can also be part Kitsune or Wolfskin, along with having the ability to turn into a dragon. They're technically already one by default, seeing as the Avatar is half-human, half-dragon.
  • Hates Being Alone: The thought of being alone is enough to make either Kana, especially the female version, start crying, as seen at the end of the Paralogue where you recruit them.
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • Male Kana is almost always referred to as "dragonspawn" by Rhajat. Additionally, the female Avatar calls him "Kana-bean" and if Izana is his father, Izana calls him "Squishbubble" among others.
    • Female Kana is called "Little Miss Dragon" by Asugi.
  • Interspecies Romance: As a Half-Human Hybrid, they'll have one with Kiragi and Selkie if they reach an S-support with them, as well as in his paired endings with Nina and Rhajat.
  • Just Friends: In the localization, male Kana's S-Supports with Sophie, Caeldori, Velouria, and Soleil end with him being rejected by them after confessing his love to them. They then elect to just stay friends. Most of his other S-supports he just mentions wanting to be best friends with the girl he S-ranks. Some of these supports, however can be interpreted as Maybe Ever After with most of the supports ending with a promise to stay together, accompanied with a Luminescent Blush and the fact that they can no longer S-rank any other character. A good example of this is his S-supports with Ophelia and Mitama. If Kana S-ranks either Rhajat or Nina his ending text confirms that he eventually gets together with them when they get older.
  • Maybe Ever After: A number of their S-supports imply that they might eventually end up in a romantic relationship with their partner, but it's not made clear. Some notable examples being Mitama and Ophelia for the male and Asugi, Hisame, Percy, and Siegbert for the female. In Male Kana's S-Support with Mitama he writes a poem on their friendship, she loves it and is blushing as she says so, and at the end of the support she offers him the chance to go out for a walk and then write poetry together. By Mitama's standards, the last one can count either as a friendly outing or a date. In his S-support with Ophelia he gives her a gem and she puts it on a ring to remember they are fated together, while both blushing they say they'll remain together forever.
  • Momma's Boy: Male Kana does his best to please his mother, going as far as doing chores for her just to hear her say "Thank you" to him.
  • Mundane Utility: Female Kana uses her dragon powers to help her beat Asugi in a game of Hide and Seek. In her Supports with Shiro, she also mentions wanting to use them to get an apple out of a tree.
  • Mystical White Hair: Their default hair color (used in Heirs of Fate) is white with a beige-grey tinge, just like their dad/mom. It marks their dragonic heritage.
  • Nice Guy: Female Kana is a bit more immature about it than Male Kana, but nonetheless both are as kindhearted as the Avatar.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Female Kana knows people see her as a bit of a ditz, which she abuses in her Supports with Dwyer. She pretends to go along with his (very clearly bogus) martial arts training to get him to see that he's been acting like a jerk.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. In Heirs of Fate, both Kanas show up at the same time with the same name, distinguishable only by their gender.
  • Physical God: In their default ending, "the divine Kana" becomes worshiped as a god in later generations, like Tiki in Awakening.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: They are the smallest and youngest of the children, but they have full control over their dragon abilities, making them exceedingly powerful in combat.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Many of Kana's S-supports in the localization end up with them just becoming good friends with their partner. The exceptions are Kiragi (Female) and Selkie (Male), who get a Relationship Upgrade at S-rank; and with Nina and Rhajat for Male Kana in their paired endings. With some wriggling space, Mitama, Ophelia,(Male) Asugi, Hisame, Percy, and Siegbert (Female) may count as this too.
  • The Pollyanna: They are ever cheerful and upbeat. It's more noticeable for the female, though.
  • Precocious Crush: They are among the youngest of the children, but they can develop feelings for the other Second Gens (many of which are implied to be in their late teens or early adulthood) if they reach an S Support. Male Kana can crush on several of the older girls, such as Sophie, Caeldori, Velouria, and Soleil, while female Kana is implied to develop a crush on Asugi, Hisame, and Siegbert if she S-ranks them.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "This ends now!"
    "I won't surrender!"
    "You won't stop me!"
  • Pointy Ears: They inherit pointed ears from the Avatar, which serves as an indicator that they're part dragon like their parent.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Female Kana has one, keeping her apparently long hair out of the way.
  • Reincarnation: Like their father/mother, Kana is implied to be the past life/reincarnation of Morgan in their skinship sessions.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Their name bears a strong resemblance to Kanna-Kamuy, an Ainu dragon-god of thunder and lightning. It also pairs with their parent's default name in Japan, Kamui, the Japanese equivalent of "kamuy".
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: They're royals by blood and more than willing to help their parents save the world.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, and in fact the grandchild of Anankos, they are able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Just like their dad/mom, Kana likes walking around barefoot, is overall very optimistic, and may apologize after attacking.
    • The Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC shows they almost always inherit a personality trait or ability from their non-Avatar parent. For example, if Azura is female Kana's mother, she can sing just like her, and if Takumi is Male Kana's father, he shares his insecurity issues.
  • Shonen Hair: Male Kana's outrageously spiky hair could give many of Shonen Jump's protagonists a run for their money.
  • Significant Birth Date: Their birthday, April 19th, is Fire Emblem Awakening's Japanese and European release date.
  • Stepford Smiler: Female Kana's loneliness is actually crippling enough that she cries whenever she's alone, as shown in her supports with Forrest, but she nonetheless tries to keep up a cheerful demeanor in front of the rest of the army.
  • Superpowerful Genetics: By default Kana has access to all the draconic abilities the Avatar has. However, they also inherit a permanent weakness to dragon slaying weapons.Like the Avatar all this is inherited from their grandfather, the Dragon God Anankos. Kana could potentially inherit the Mark of Naga if you have the Female Avatar marry Odin or if you have the Male Avatar marry Ophelia.
  • Take Up My Sword: In the Heirs of Fate DLC, they end up wielding the Avatar's Yato.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Kana is, by their own admission, the youngest child of the second generation children, being even younger than Midori and Percy.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening:
    • In their Paralogue, their dragon powers awaken after seeing the Avatar (their father or mother) being attacked by enemies.
    • In Heirs of Fate, the grief of being separated from his mother causes male Kana to transforms into a dragon for the first time.
  • Warrior Prince: Or Princess. Despite being inexperienced, Kana can be just as capable as his or her parents.

    Shigure 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_61.png
Click here to see Shigure in Fire Emblem Heroes 

"I won't shy from battle."

The son of Azura. Like his mother, he is great at singing, has sharp senses, and an artist’s soul. Though calm, collected, kind, and gentle, he can be moody and loves doing things at his own pace. He loves high places. His birthday is June 6th.

Class: Sky Knight, Falcon Knight (Heirs of Fate: V and End)
Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)

  • Archnemesis Dad: Or Grandad at any rate, but he might have this relationship to Anankos in Heirs of Fate, if it's assumed that the Shigure who acts like the Big Good in that stage is fathered by the Male Avatar.
  • Ascended Extra: Just another unit in the main story, but Heirs of Fate sees him become the main character.
  • Badass Bureaucrat: His solo ending mentions that following the war he served the Hoshidan government's administration for the rest of his life.
  • Barrier Maiden: In Heirs of Fate he becomes this because not only he has Azura's magical pendant, but as said above he is supposed to be the only one capable of performing a Magic Music that will complete a world-changing Prophecy. (At least the only one alive, that is.)
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation females (except Soleil in the Western versions).
  • Big Good: In Heirs of Fate, he is the one who brings the Hoshidan and Nohrian children together and directs their efforts to bring down Anankos.
  • Birds of a Feather: Bonds with Mitama in their supports over their mutual love for the arts.
  • Birthmark of Destiny: If Odin is his father, the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC reveals that like Ophelia he too inherited the Mark of Naga.
  • Bishōnen: He's a very pretty man. He could give Marth a run for his money. The Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) card game takes it to the logical conclusion of Dude Looks Like a Lady to a ridiculous extent.
  • The Comically Serious: He's more social than his mother, meaning he's more willing to hang out with people, but shares her unflappable demeanor. This leads to his serious nature being paired up with the wacky shenanigans and personalities of the more bizarre children in Support conversations. Ophelia, for example, rants about Shigure's "divine and magical singing" while he stands there utterly baffled.
  • Cultured Badass: A very talented artist (specifically in painting and singing), and he can still hold his own in battle.
  • Deadpan Snarker: It's not apparent at first, but Shigure can be very sarcastic. A great example is his quote when fed terrible food at the mess hall.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Mother... will your singing... be able to reach above the skies, I wonder..."
    Heirs of Fate Shigure: "This is... what I feared... that we wouldn't finish Anankos... in time... I'm sorry, Kana... We'd only just become... true friends... Mother... I'll see you again soon..."
  • Friend to All Living Things: Shigure's Supports with his sibling show that he frequently goes out into forests to talk to the native wildlife.
  • Going Native: After a fashion: His name is Hoshidan, his starting class is the Hoshido-only Sky Knight (his mother's default reclassing option), and his solo ending has him working as an official for Hoshido's government. In the Heirs of Fate DLC, when he reminisces about his mother, he's wearing a kimono and writing at a Hoshidan-style home while she's watching over him. It could be Azura's love of Hoshidan culture is shared by him, but he doesn't indicate bias favoritism towards it like she does, due to not having faced any kind of heavy discrimination from Nohrians like her.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Much like his mother, Shigure's main color palette is white and gold, with both his class promotions having the same palette. Additionally, he has Heavenly Blue as accenting, just to drive the point further.
  • Grief Song: Sings Lost In Thoughts All Alone to grieve for his caretakers who died protecting him.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Depending who his father is, he has the potential to use Dragonstones or Beaststones.
  • Kissing Cousins: If paired him up with the Female Avatar, who is his first cousin once removed, or Female Kana, who is his second cousin.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted in Heirs of Fate. He attempted to do this by singing the 4th verse of Lost in Thoughts All Alone, but Lilith frees the other children and sends them to stop him. Instead his mother's spirit sings with him, allowing him to survive.
  • Identical Grandson: He's said to be a dead-ringer to Cadros, the first king of Valla and Shigure's ancestor.
  • Larynx Dissonance: In-universe; in his and Azura's C-support, they try singing together, but Shigure realizes he's no longer able to hit the same pitch as his mother. Azura has to explain that he grew up and his voice got deeper.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Looks like his mom, is a good singer, is a very calm spear-wielder, etc. The primary difference is that Shigure is more open and social than Azura.
  • Little "No": Shigure gives this along with a Big "NO!" when, at the end of his Paralogue, Azura apologizes and tells him that the Deeprealms village where he was raised was destroyed and everyone there was murdered.
  • Love Confession:
    Of all the songs I know, none of them can capture how deeply I love you. No sound is sweeter than your voice.
  • Meaningful Name: "Shigure" can refer either to the Japanese word for "drizzle", keeping the theme naming with his mother, or to an Imperial Japanese Navy destroyer. The destroyer boat, known as one of IJN's Lucky Ships, survived several battles that otherwise slaughtered its entire fleet, much like how Shigure is the sole survivor of his Deeprealm.
  • Nice Guy: Very helpful, kind, and compassionate.
  • Not So Above It All:
    • He's usually calm and subdued, but if his father is resident Large Ham Odin, Shigure willingly asks for an exam in his... Odin-isms in the Hoshidian Festival Scramble DLC. And he's as into it as Odin and Ophelia.
    • If Niles is his father, Shigure will slip in some of the same type of innuendo Niles is known for, and Niles actually seems a bit mortified hearing his son talk like that.
    • Additionally, regardless of father, he tells Selkie that buzzing houses gets old faster than she'd think, almost as if he's done that exact sort of prank before.
  • Palette Swap: He inherits his mother's light blue color palette for his Sky Knight line of classes.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His right eye is covered by his light blue hair. Lampshaded in his supports with Sophie, who wonders if he can actually see with his hairstyle like that.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: His non-sibling S-rank supports with Female Kana, Soleil, and Midori end with them as these.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "Let's hear your Swan Song!"
    "An encore? If you insist!"
    "It's showtime!"
    "This show is over!"
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He's of royal blood just like his mom, and every bit as willing to fight to defend the world.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, he is able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Usually the sensitive guy to one of his various potential brothers all being the Manly Man.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • If his father is the Male Avatar, Shigure inherited his father's love for animals, and they both have a case of Survivor's Guilt.
    • If fathered by Arthur, the Children DLC states that he inherits at least a part of his father's... bad luck.
    • Should Mitama be his sister, they both share an interest in art. He also inherits his father's worldview, even if he doesn't let it affect his personality overall.
    • If his father is Niles, he inherits his penchant for Double Entendres, though he seems more oblivious to how it comes off than Niles.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Rare Male Example. He's polite, nice, and generally pretty calm, though not to the extent of seeming emotionless.
  • Sole Survivor:
    • In Birthright if his father is Kaze who does not have an A ranked support with the Avatar, then he will be the last of his direct family left since Kaze will die saving the Avatar, Azura will die at the end, and his potential sister Midori is never born.
    • He's the sole survivor of his village in the Deeprealm, whose inhabitants were slaughtered by raiders.
  • Spear Counterpart: He is this to Lucina in some respects. He's tied to an opposite gendered parent than the rest of the children. He both highly respects and has similar specialties to his mother, though he can't be a singer for story and game balance purposes. And he will always have his mother's hair color, regardless of his father (unlike Kana, who will always get the hair color of their non-Avatar parent, even if male). This is much more prominent in Heirs of Fate. Interestingly, he shares his English voice actor with Lucina's father.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Shigure essentially looks like a Gender Flip of his mother. Additionally, Heirs of Fate reveals he bares a strong resemblance to his ancestor, King Cadros aka the founder of Valla.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Shigure has his mother Azura's bright yellow eyes. Azura's mother Arete and Lilith also have these, hinting at their connection to Valla.
  • Survivor's Guilt: His dialogue in his Paralogue and some of his supports, specifically with Sophie, show that the death of all his friends and caretakers weighs very heavily on him.
    • Heirs of Fate takes this Up to Eleven with the reveal that Shigure is from a universe where everyone else failed and died to Anankos in Revelation. This drives his Death Seeker later in the DLC.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His portrait in the Heirs of Fate DLC shows him wearing Azura's pendant, and knowing the fates of the entire first generation...
    • His hairstyle can be considered as such. If he supports with Sophie, he tells her that right before coming into the army, he and his best friend from his Deeprealm switched 'styles as a joke. However, everyone in the Deeprealm village was slaughtered and Shigure barely managed to escape, so he kept using his friend's hairstyle to honor them.
  • Warrior Prince: He clearly inherited his mother's skill with a lance and is technically a royal of two (actually three) nations, like her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Just like his mother. He'll always have Azura's light blue hair regardless of who his father is.

    Dwyer (Deere) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_80.png
"As if I don't have enough trouble."

The son of Jakob. Though he has an apathetic personality, he has extremely great potential. Thinks often of his comrades. He is a naturally skilled butler, and is just as skilled at combat. He has the most hidden talents. His birthday is November 16th.

Class: Troubadour, Butler (default class for Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Yuichi Iguchi (Japanese), Gideon Emery (English)

  • The Ace: He excels in everything from combat and stealth to house keeping and cooking.
  • Always Someone Better: Tries to compete with his dad in one or another manner. In a twist, he is already better at doing household chores than Jakob, but Jakob is still the better fighter. His solo ending mentions that his tea extraction methods continue to be used to this very day.
    • He's also this for many of the other children. Asugi spent an entire day tailing him to figure out just how Dwyer is able to best everyone at everything, only to discover that he does absolutely nothing but nap between daily chores.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: He hilariously and awesomely defeats an enemy invader this way at the end of his paralogue, and even dubs the move "slappyface".
  • Battle Butler: Can become a literal one if he promotes to Butler.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation females (except Soleil in the Western versions).
  • Birds of a Feather: His supports with Mitama have them bonding over healing people and their shared love of sleeping (when they're not having Snark-to-Snark Combat that is).
    • Also has this with Velouria. His A-support with her reveals one of the reasons he felt a connection with her was because they both had a lazy side.
  • Bishōnen: Not as obvious as his father, due to his disheveled appearance, but official artwork from the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) card game shows that he's just as attractive as his father.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's actually pretty good at being a butler, but he's often too apathetic (or desiring of a nap) to utilize his skills to the fullest.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Has a technique called "slappyface", which he declares before using.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Constantly snarky and sarcastic, which is accompanied by his dry tone.
  • Expy: He shares a few similarities with Brady from Awakening. Both are healers clad in dark clothing, have a tendency of slouching, and come off as standoffish yet they're also genuinely nice.
    • His appearance has been compared to L, especially if he has black hair. It's also quite ironic since Dwyer loves to sleep while L doesn't sleep at all.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Hah... I'm tired... I can't... move another... finger..."
    Heirs of Fate Dwyer: "You're kidding me... How am I gonna face Father now? And after he saved my life, too... Sorry Father... I failed you again."
  • Guyliner: It appears that he has these in his portrait, and his Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) artworks as well.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: His artwork from the Festival of Bonds DLC shows that he is actually quite handsome if he just straightens his hair and posture a little and wears more bright clothing.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Has evenly spread out stats, with HP and Strength being his best stats.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Much like his father but to a lesser extent, he can come as halfhearted and blunt most of the time, but he's actually a nice guy at heart.
  • Lazy Bum: Jakob seems to believe so, and Dwyer's apathetic personality and tendency to nap on the job aren't helping his case.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Played with. He inherited several of his father's personality traits (a penchant to snark, stubbornness, crassness that hides caring) and skills as a butler, but Dwyer is also not above shirking his duties, something Jakob would never even consider doing if his life depended on it.
  • Looks Like Cesare: Seems so. This is even more notable if his mother has dark hair, like Nyx or Kagero.
  • Love at First Sight: Should he S-rank the Female Avatar, he reveals this was the case when he first met her when in her Private Quarters.
  • Love Confession:
    I don't lift a finger for just anyone... but I would do anything in the world for you.
  • Messy Hair: Very, very messy!
  • Must Have Caffeine: Most of his supports with Jakob and his mother involve coffee, with and his Paralogue has the implication that he also enjoys it himself.
  • Nice Guy: It's hidden under layers of Deadpan Snarker and Lazy Bum, but Dwyer is a actually a nice guy who generally enjoys pleasing others, though apparently doesn't like being told he's nice. That last bit is actually a shared trait with his father.
  • Only Sane Man: Dwyer's Support conversations tend to have him as the voice of reason dealing with a wacky compatriot.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "You've got a lot of nerve."
    "I just want to go home..."
    "Get out of the way."
    "Let's get this over with."
  • The Rival: Becomes this to his father, of all people.
  • Secret Art: He apparently considers slappyface to be this.
  • Serious Business: Apparently, going by his supports with his father, brewing coffee.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • His supports with his father reveal that Jakob's abrasive personalty and rudeness is genetic, as Dwyer is incredibly rude to his father (though it likely wasn't helped by Jakob belittling Dwyer's coffee-making). Additionally, like Jakob, Dwyer does not like being told he's actually nice, and random conversation in your My Castle reveals that if Jakob isn't helping the Avatar he's most likely napping.
    • Should his mother be Setsuna, he shares her lazy nature and has a similar slow speech pattern to her.
    • Should his mother be Charlotte, killing enemies bare-handed runs in the family.
  • ShipTease: Interestingly, his A support with Velouria has subtext of this.
    Velouria: None of that was work. It was enjoying what life brought me. Like you.
    Dwyer: Oh? Like me? I see.
    Dwyer: Erm...
  • Stalker Without a Crush: A male Avatar apparently had a tear in his outfit that bothered him enough follow the former to try to fix it in their C support.
    Avatar: Dwyer? Are you stalking me?
    Dwyer: Not you. Your sleeve. If you wouldn't mind...? Your sleeve...has a little hole...right...there. May I?
    Avatar: Fix it? Uh, sure.
  • Supreme Chef: Gameplay-wise, if you make him the chef in the restaurant, the stuff he cooks boost all of your characters' stats (+1 for all stats, additional +1 for random stat) for the next battle. He is in the same cooking category (Delicious) as Mitama, Mozu, Caeldori and Flora.
    • Also a case of Gameplay and Story Integration. In all of his supports involving food and drink, Dwyer's cooking and brewing is noted to be utterly superb. Even Percy's wyvern can't get enough of his coffee.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Drink in his case, and it's coffee. His C and A supports with Jakob involve them getting into competition over it, and his Paralogue has Jakob mention he had to get Dwyer his favorite type of coffee bean. Additionally, if going by his supports with the Avatar and his lines for purchasing items, Mint tea is also high up on his list.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: While still considering his father a rival, he looks up to Jakob and wants him to recognize him.
  • White Mage: A mounted one. Can become a Combat Medic (as a Butler) or a mounted Red Mage (as a Strategist).

    Sophie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_82.png
"I have to come to the rescue! I bet Daddy will even be proud of me!"

The daughter of Silas. She is extremely prone to making mistakes, but is always optimistic and cheerful. She named her favorite horse Avel. She talks to herself more than anyone. Her birthday is July 21st.

Class: Cavalier, Paladin (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Sakura Nakamura (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

  • All Girls Like Ponies: Her relationship with Avel aside, she's very fond of horses in general. Her supports with Forrest reveal that she likes clothing with silhouettes of horses on it, or fabric that's the same color as Avel's coat.
  • Alliterative Family: Possible if Silas marries any of Selena, Setsuna, or Sakura to get Sophie. Can be taken further if Sophie marries, say, Siegbert.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation boys.
  • Cool Horse: Avel, who was a gift from Silas. Unfortunately for Sophie, he doesn't always listen to her.
  • Clothing Damage: Her personal Skill strips enemies of their clothes and leaves them in their underwear.
  • Covert Pervert: In the Hoshidian Festival Scramble DLC, should her mother be Oboro, Sophie lets slip that she's actually stripping the enemy on purpose. And in her conversation with Peri as her mother, she admit to have grow to actually like seeing the enemies' clothing flying off them.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She is prone to making mistakes. Her personal skill, Mischievousnote , even causes her opponent's clothes to be ripped apart while lowering their defense!
  • Expy: Of Cynthia, as both strive to be great heroes like their fixed parents, but their clumsiness frequently gets in the way.
    • Her constant bringing up Avel in conversation is also reminiscent of Cherche's obsession with Minerva.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "I'm such a klutz... to the end... I wanted... to become a wonderful knight..."
    Heirs of Fate Sophie: "Wait... You haven't spent our memories yet, right? So how come... Mine are going black..."
  • Genki Girl: She's said to be cheery and happy all the time.
  • Hair Decorations: A black hairband.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: She aspires to be a great knight like her father, but her clumsy tendencies get in her way.
  • It Never Gets Any Easier: Going by one of her quotes if she defeats an enemy.
    "When does it get easy?"
  • Love Confession:
    I love you! I'm sure you, me, and our children will make a perfect family. Oh, and Avel too, of course.
  • Moody Mount: As much as she loves Avel, he hasn't returned her affections. He disobeys her frequently, causes random mischief (like kicking an old lady), and even eats Sophie's hair once.
  • Noodle Incident: In her C support with Hisame, she mentions that the last time she tried to use chop sticks, she almost burned the house down.
  • Plucky Girl: No matter how many times she goofs, she never loses her spirit.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "I have no choice!"
    "I will do my duty!"
    "You asked for it!"
    "Good night!"
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Should her mother be Felicia or Setsuna, she will share her clumsiness with her mother.
    • If a male Kana is her brother, she tends to bring flowers to a female Avatar like the latter does in their C supports...only, it's Played for Laughs here rather than heartwarming.
  • Thong of Shielding: Despite being a horse mounted unit, Sophie (and other female cavaliers as well with the exception of Peri) wears a really revealing thong to battle.

    Midori (Midoriko) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_81.png
"Pick on someone your own size!"

The daughter of Kaze. She loves to make medicine and has a curious mind. This makes her a polite and honorable student. She also loves her father and likes to brag about him whenever the opportunity presents itself. Has the most acute sense of taste. Her birthday is May 17th.

Class: Apothecary, Merchant (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Marika Kouno (Japanese), Sarah Blandy (English)

  • Adorably Precocious Child: She really is serious about learning medicine and is constantly scouring books for new treatments but gets embarrassed so easily that it's hard to take her seriously.
  • Agent Scully: Show shades of this in her C-and B-rank support with Ophelia; she thinks fortune-telling in general is fake and doesn't hesitate to tell Ophelia that her fortune-telling methods are made-up nonsense. It becomes ironic if Orochi or Nyx is Midori's mother.
  • Badass Adorable: She's capable of defending herself, and is very cute at the same time. Her tendency to speak in third-person also adds the cuteness appeal.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation males (aside from Asugi in Western territories).
  • Born Lucky: Her personal skill, Lucky Charm, increases the activation rate of all skills that use Luck by 20%.
  • Catchphrase: "Well, the fact is..." She mainly says this whenever she wants to prove a point.
  • Custom Uniform: Along with her green Merchant outfit, she has a unique, green-colored Ninja and Master Ninja uniform like her father. They are also both far more modest compared to the usual female version of the uniforms.
  • Cute Bookworm: She's an avid student of herbal medicine, studying remedies in her free time.
  • Daddy's Girl: Loves to brag about her father.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "I guess... this is the end... No herb... can heal this wound..."
    Heirs of Fate Midori: "I tried so hard... guess it wasn't enough. I'm sorry, father... I hope... even if you win and everything is restored... you'll remember me..."
  • Friendly Tickle Torture: Accidentally inflicted on Male Kana in their supports. No matter which pressure point she tried, Kana was sent into a laughing fit. He gradually becomes used to it, so this phases out by the end of the A-Rank support.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Despite the fact that her personal skill implies she's Born Lucky, Midori also inherits Kaze's negative luck modifier. Much like Percy, the only way for Midori to have a positive luck modifier is to be the daughter of an Avatar with Luck as her boon.
  • Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex: She's implied to have been conceived from it in the Birthright path, as her Paralogue is unlocked only after Chapter 15 (aka the one where Kaze dies in a Heroic Sacrifice if he doesn't have an A support with the Avatar) is completed.
  • Girlish Pigtails: With two tiny bows, not unlike the younger-looking Avatar from Awakening.
  • Kissing Cousins: In the Japanese version, she can potentially reach S-Support with Asugi, who is her cousin due to their fathers being brothers. Like Lucina and Owain, it becomes more platonic in the localization.
    • Can be taken Up to Eleven, if you marry the two brothers to Hinoka and Sakura, then hook her and Asugi up with each other.
  • Like Mother, Like Daughter: Should her mother be Orochi, she will inherit her herbal healing skills.
  • Love Confession:
    True love is so sweet! Like the sweetest thing ever! Except maybe a box of chocolate!
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means "Green," referencing her affinity for herbs, association with good lucknote , and her father's green hair, which will manifest in her green eyebrows regardless of what color the rest of her hair is. However, it's also impossible for her hair to be fully green unless her mother is a green-hairednote  female Avatar; the closest possibilities are Beruka and Setsuna, whose hairs are light and dark aqua, respectively.
  • The Medic: Her hobby is making medicines, her solo ending mentions that following the war she developed various new medicines, and scholars state that she managed to save more lives than anyone else in history.
  • My Greatest Failure: If her mother is Nyx, then her conversation with her in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC reveals that Midori regards her inability to create a cure for her Curse as this.
  • Nice Girl: A personality trait that she inherited from her father. Like father, like daughter indeed. She also fits into the "Sweet" category (along with Oboro and Elise, which adds +1 Luck to those affected) if she's made as a chef for your restaurant, which is more or less fitting to her personality.
  • Not the Intended Use: While Midori's personal skill, Lucky Charm, is meant for skills such as Salvage Blow, Profiteer, and Good Fortune, players have noted that it also stacks with the skills Hoshidan Unity note  and Quixotic note . Since Midori is able to inherit the Hoshido Noble class if the female Avatar is her mother, she can also access the Dragon Ward skill note  and the said Hoshidan Unity skill. This had made players to make her more of a support unit instead with a combination of Dragon Ward, Quixotic, and Hoshidan Unity. Bonus points if she is also reclass into a support class that has a naturally high luck cap and use staves such as a Priestess, Strategist, or Maid.
  • Older Than They Look: In the Western release, Midori fits into this. One of her support conversations with her mother mentions that people ask Midori where her parents are when she's an adult. However, Midori is about the only person who insists that she's an adult, and she's not consistent on this either (such as her A support with her mother, where she asks if it would be a bad idea to go into the woods without adult supervision). This makes it rather vague as to whether she truly is an adult, or just wants to be seen as one.
  • Permanently Missable Content: Unlike the other children, this can happen even if her father gets married. In Birthright, Kaze has to survive chapter 15 by reaching A rank with the Avatar. The paralogue will unlock immediately afterwards if he's married so if this condition is not met, Midori's paralogue will never unlock, even if she's almost certainly already been born. This was necessary to prevent inconsistencies in her supports.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Shigure, if they reach S support and are not siblings. Asugi as well in the localization.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "My diagnosis? You're done!"
    "Take your medicine!"
    "Here's a bitter pill!"
    "This might sting a little!"
  • Shared Family Quirks: If her mother is Orochi, she shares her habit of referring to herself in the third person as well as her interest and skill with medicinal herbs.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: If Felicia is her mother, Midori looks exactly like a younger, purple-eyed, pigtailed version of her mother. Midori's fringe is even nearly identical to Felicia's, and their eye shape is identical (Midori's being slightly wider to indicate her youth). Midori shares a number of personality traits from Felicia, too, such as her eagerness to help, determination, and slight recklessness.
  • Third-Person Person: Sometimes slips into such speech patterns, showcasing her youth.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Midori is considered to be one of the youngest of the second generation children, around Kana and Percy's age.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her default portrait has light green hair like her father. She'll keep her green eyebrows if her mom has a different hair color.

Hoshido Exclusive Characters:

    Shiro (Shinonome) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_62.png
Click here to see Shiro in Fire Emblem Heroes 
Raw Talent

"You ready for this? I doubt it. Fine then. Take your best shot."

The son of Ryoma. Aims to be like his father and considers him a worthy rival. Friendly, but the type of person who hates to lose. He finds no greater joy than fighting the strong and always hungers for victory. The best arm-wrestler. His birthday is August 22nd.

Class: Spear Fighter, Swordmaster (Heirs of Fate)
Voiced by: Yasuaki Takumi (Japanese), Kaiji Tang (English)

  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido females, as well as second generation Nohr characters Nina and Ophelia in Revelation.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Plays this role towards many of the second generation kids, most notably male Kana and his younger cousin, Kiragi.
  • The Big Guy: Of Hoshido's second generation. Not only is he one of the physically largest, but he's the strongest too.
  • Birds of a Feather: Has this relationship with Caeldori in their supports, both worrying about being in the shadows of their respective fathers.
  • Blade on a Stick: As a Spear Fighter, he is adept with lances.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's very strong and competitive, but also has a tender personality and a very informal manner of speaking despite being heir to the throne.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Shiro has a minor one at the end of his Paralogue, mainly calling Ryoma out on not telling him he's royalty and heir to the throne of Hoshido. Shiro specifically seems to be annoyed that he was treated by his caretakers as special, but didn't know why.
  • Commonality Connection: His support line with Nina. Both love watching buddy-comedy plays, and though he initially doesn't see them in quite the same way she does, he comes to support her hobby and praises her imaginative nature . Should they S-Rank together, his first date venue is a play solely focused on the relationship between two men.
  • Custom Uniform: His Spear Fighter and Spear Master outfits are predominantly red. He also gets Ryoma's Swordmaster outfit, should you reclass him.
  • Emotional Bruiser: Shiro, in contrast to his father, is much more willing to express himself and how he feels regardless of what others think.
  • Expy:
    • Like many of the children, Shiro shares traits with characters from Awakening, unlike the other ones, he appears to be a Composite Character of Vaike and Owain. He has both of their easygoing personalities, Hot-Blooded nature, and like Vaike, has a rivalry with the main Lord of his kingdom (in his case, his father). Bonus points in that he can potentially have blond hair (from Elise, Hana or a blonde Female Avatar) to drive this further.
    • He also resembles Ike a bit in both appearance and personality. Additionally, should his mother be Oboro, Azura, Setsuna, or a blue-haired Female Avatar he'll also have the Lordly blue hair color endemic to Fire Emblem. The resemblance to Ike is greater if a blue-haired Shiro reclasses to Vanguard.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "I... wanted to become... stronger... just like mother... and father..."
    Heirs of Fate Shiro: "Dammit... I wasn't good enough... Hey, Dad... I want a rematch... someday..."
  • Foil: To Siegbert as the sons of Ryoma and Xander, the Avatar's two older brothers. While Siegbert grew up fully aware of his royal status and idolizes Xander to a fault,Shiro was left in the dark about his heritage and hates Ryoma for his absence during Shiro's childhood.
  • Friend to All Children: Shiro's supports with the younger characters show that he is actually very good with kids and genuinely enjoys spending time with them. This especially shows in his non-sibling supports with both Kanas, doing his best to keep male Kana entertained during a rainy day and giving female Kana piggyback rides and spinning her around in circles. He also eagerly helps his younger cousin, Kiragi, out with his hunting by carrying him across a river.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: He became a spear fighter specifically because polearms have the weapon triangle advantage against his father's sword.
  • Glass Cannon: When activated, his personal skill, Noble Cause, makes both him and the enemy deal more damage to each other.
  • Heroic Build: He's ripped!
  • Heroic Resolve: Shiro's personal skill, Noble Cause, gives him a small boost in power so long as he is being supported by an ally who is not at full health.
  • Hot-Blooded: Very much so, just like dear old dad.
  • Irony: In Heirs of Fate he states that Siegbert's weapon Siegfried likely killed his father in the worlds that chose Conquest, while he actually holds his father's blade Raijinto, the weapon that actually killed Ryoma.
  • Japanese Spirit: Shiro embodies the core qualities of Koyuu (natural talent), Chie (righteous convictions), and Kakan (desire to make himself better).
  • Leeroy Jenkins: His strategy in combat tends to be just rushing at his opponents blindly.
  • Lightning Bruiser: His class makes him seem like a Mighty Glacier, but because of Ryoma's stupidly high Speed stat, Shiro will end up being a fast, and hard hitting unit with ease, especially since most of his potential mothers have either good, or solid Speed stats as well.
  • Like Father, Like Son: In his A support with his mother, it's revealed that Ryoma said something similar to Shiro regarding making his mother happy, with each mother having a slight variation of explaining that Ryoma said he'd be a failure of a husband if he couldn't keep his wife happy. If his mother is Camilla, Kagero, Oboro, or Rinkah, she even name-drops the trope.
    • Promotion-wise, he wears the same armor his father does if you promote him to Swordmaster rather than a normal kimono the class comes with. If you choose, he can wear his father's mask from the Accessory store.
  • Lovable Jock: He's very strongly built and has a competitive personality, but he's still a very friendly and caring guy who is good with children.
  • Love Confession:
    I'm stronger with you at my side. Stay with me forever.
  • Meaningful Name: In the localization, his name is Shiro, which is Japanese for 'white', the main color theme for Hoshido.
  • Momma's Boy: His supports with his mother imply that he grew up being closer to her than his father, and in his Hoshidan Festival of Bonds conversation with Elise, he reveals that he desperately wants to be spoiled by her, which is a trait he got from her.
  • Noble Male, Roguish Male: The Roguish to Siegbert's Noble.
  • Palette Swap: A red Spear Fighter uniform.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "Ready for this?"
    "Sorry to do this."
    "Any last words?"
    "And...go!"
  • Rated M for Manly: He's noticeably muscular and possesses more masculine and chiseled looks compared to the other second generation males. He certainly has the personality for it too, and is even a pro at arm wrestling.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: Shiro was never told that he was a prince during his stay in the Deeprealms.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • The red to Siegbert's blue. Hell, his Swordmaster's armor is red like his father's to contrast Siegbert's purple paladin armor, the latter of which matches Xander's.
    • He also has this dynamic with Asugi.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Just like his dad.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, he is able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Shout-Out: His supports with Caeldori have him reference the famous Smokey The Bear "Only you can prevent forest fires" slogan.
    Shiro: Lamps out at bedtime, everybody! Only you can prevent fires!
    Caeldori: Shiro! Not so loud. You'll wake the poor people just getting to bed.
    Shiro: Aw, c'mon! I've always wanted to say that.
    Caeldori: "Only you can prevent fires," though? We're on perimeter patrol tonight, not fire watch.
    • Hilariously, the one time he doesn't shout about fire safety, one can guess what happens.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Shiro got Ryoma's habit of never giving up, as well as having a habit of wanting to make his mother happy.
    • Should his mother be Camilla, it's clear where Shiro's Team Dad traits came from. Additionally, he's one of the children of hers in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC who's revealed to have her.... possessively protective personality. He's uncomfortable hearing this.
    • If he's mothered by Elise, alternately, he takes after her in wanting to be spoiled.
  • The Social Darwinist: His supports with the Male Avatar reveal he thinks along these lines. In his opinion, the strongest should become king, not whoever is next in line, because inheriting a throne doesn't mean you're suited to rule. In a manner, he's kind of correct.
  • Sore Loser: He's got a competitive streak and hates settling for second place.
  • Spirited Competitor: Is always searching for strong opponents, including his own father. His drive to beat his father is so strong, his entire reasoning for being a Spear Fighter is so he can have weapon advantage on his father.
  • Take Up My Sword: In the Heirs of Fate DLC, he ends up wielding his father's Raijinto.
  • Team Dad: As one of the oldest of the second generation, if not the oldest, he naturally fits into this role. It helps that he also has a very brotherly instinct towards his peers, especially the younger ones, always doing his best to help them out whenever they need him.
  • Warrior Prince: Like his father and uncle(s).
  • Weapon of Choice: The Bright Naginata, but only in Heroes. In Heirs of Fate, he gets to use his father's Raijinto.

    Kiragi (Kisaragi) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_63.png
"No biggie. I've got the bow my dad gave me. Let's call this target practice!"

The son of Takumi. Both optimistic and friendly, he thinks about everything in a positive way. He’s a wild boy blessed with limitless physical strength. Has the best eyesight. His birthday is July 4th.

Class: Archer, Sniper (Heirs of Fate: V and End)
Voiced by: Kiyotaka Furushima (Japanese), Yuri Lowenthal (English)

  • Always Someone Better: He is this to his father Takumi as an archer.
    • However, Caeldori is the one who's better at it than him, but then again, Kiragi did give himself a handicap while competing against her.
  • Battle Couple:
    • Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido females, as well as Velouria in Revelation.
    • In the Japanese version, he could also marry Soleil. They're more of Platonic Life-Partners in the localization since her supports with guys (save for Forrest and the Male Avatar) were toned down.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A very kind and cheerful fellow who takes a great amount of joy in fighting.
  • Blood Knight: Takes an almost sadistic pleasure in fighting enemy armies, which leans into borderline Creepy Child levels. In fact, his primary motivation for joining the Avatar's army is that he found the constant battling his father does "fun". Can be seen as a Shared Family Quirk if his mother is Camilla.
  • Book Dumb: Shirks studying whenever possible to go hunting and particularly loathes history and math until his mother goes through the effort of turning it into terms more relatable for him.
  • Childhood Marriage Promise: Makes one with Female Kana in their S-support.
  • Creepy Child: Played with in his case: Kiragi is a sincerely kind and sweet Nice Guy most of the time, but, as said above, he's kind of a Blood Knight regarding fights and, depending on who his mom is, can have some rather... startling talks with said mom in the DLC.note 
  • Disney Creatures of the Farce: In his Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC conversation with Azura, he mentions how animals often gather around him when he sings...and he then proceeds to hunt them.
  • The Empath: His superb archery skills are backed up by his sixth sense that lets him sense people's auras, though this is only brought up in very few Support conversations, especially the Male Avatar.
  • Expy: His Cheerful Child behaviour mixed with his worrying love of fighting are reminiscent of Rolf. He even looks a bit like him, especially if you can get a Kiragi with green hair.
  • Everybody Hates Math: His supports with his mother show that he swears by this trope.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Thank you... everyone... It was... really fun..."
    Heirs of Fate Kiragi: "So I lost... I'm sure the others can pick up the slack... Hey, Dad... Hey, Mom... did you see me fight?"
  • Glass Cannon: By default he tends to be this because of his father's growths, though his mother will typically determine how much of this he is. A mother like Oboro tends to even his defenses out, while a mother like Hana plays this even more straight.
  • Hidden Depths: His supports with Female Kana show that he genuinely worries about his responsibilities as a prince, and that one of the reasons he's so fond of the forest is because it's a place where he can just get away from everything for a while.
  • Jumped at the Call: Decides to join the Avatar's army because he finds what his dad does for a living "fun".
  • Keet: Unlike his serious and cynical father, Kiragi's very energetic and optimistic.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Takumi is a very cynical person, but Kiragi is perpetually optimistic.
  • Love Confession:
    Guess I'm not the only archer around here—you got me right through the heart, you know. And I couldn't be happier.
  • Nature Lover: Loves hunting and running around in the outdoors.
  • Nice Guy: Unlike his father, Kiragi is very friendly and open.
  • The Pollyanna: He could give the Avatar a run for their money in terms of being upbeat. In fact, he's arguably more chipper than them, since their reaction to being surrounded is to grimly get ready; Kiragi's is to chirp that it's time for target practice.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "War is heck!"
    "Have a nice day!"
    "Here goes!"
    "No more mister nice guy!"
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Just like his dad.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, he is able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Has this dynamic with Forrest as the Manly Man in the Revelation path. Kiragi dragging the reluctant prince on a few nature hikes and hunting trips inspires Forrest with whole new ideas for outdoorsman fashion, with Kiragi set up to be his dressup doll.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • He is an excellent archer like his father—in fact, Takumi's supports show that he's potentially better than him.
    • If Mozu is his mother, he takes a lot after her in terms of hunting and liking the outdoors.
    • The Hoshidan Festival of Bonds shows that, should his mother be Camilla, he gets her obsessive and possessive traits. Even Camilla is startled by it. He is the only child who can give Camilla that reaction, and that says a lot about him.
    • The same DLC also shows that, if mothered by Azura, he inherits her singing ability just like Shigure. Except he uses it for far more nefarious purposes.
  • Shout-Out: In his and Midori's S-Support:
    Midori: Well, see... I made that new tonic using the flower you picked for me...
    Kiragi: You did? Congratulations! I bet it's super effective!
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks a lot like his dad Takumi, especially with his default hair color, save for his lack of a ponytail.
  • Take Up My Sword: In the Heirs of Fate DLC, he ends up wielding his father's Fujin Yumi.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Inverted. His Father, Takumi is cynical and hard on himself, while Kiragi is idealistically optimistic.
  • Warrior Prince: He's a skilled bowman like his father.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In their A-Support, Midori tearfully berates him for putting his life in mortal danger when he went into a volcano to fetch a medicinal flower that she mentioned, at the risk of breathing in poisonous fumes, reprimanding him for not thinking of what she would feel if she had sent him to his death. Later in their S-support, it becomes a case of Slap-Slap-Kiss, as she names the tonic she made from the flower after him, confessing her love.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He's very positive, almost the opposite of his father. Kiragi's personal skill, Optimist, gives him a considerable Speed and Luck boost for choosing to wait during his turn. The implication is that just having good faith makes him stronger.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Gives this to his dad in their supports, in which the latter feels inferior to Kiragi after watching him shoot a deer that he could not, only for Kiragi to point out how difficult it is to use the Fujin Yumi and to encourage his dad to take some pride in himself.

    Asugi (Grey/Gurei) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_64.png
"You care about your dumb name more than you've ever cared about me. It's my life. I'll live as I please."

The son of Saizo. A cool, sharp, and able person that's extremely fond of sweets. He doesn't want to follow his father's footsteps as Saizo the Sixth, which naturally puts a large strain on their relationship. He smells the best out of everyone in the army. His birthday is January 1st.

Class: Ninja, Master Ninja (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Shinobu Matsumoto (Japanese), Gideon Emery (English)

  • Adorkable: His confession scene is this in spades, professing his love for the Avatar before gushing about making "the biggest cake ever".
  • Battle Couple:
    • Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido females, as well as Nina in Revelation.
    • In the Japanese version he can also marry Soleil. In the localization, they become Platonic Life-Partners instead.
  • Call-Back:
    • His paralogue plays out similarly to Chapter 6 in Fire Emblem Awakening, where Gaius first shows up. Gaius and Asugi were both hired for what they thought was just a heist, only to find out later on that the job involved a murder.
    • In his C Support with the Female Avatar, he mentions he was thinking about calling them "Bubbles" instead of "Boss", a reference to what Gaius would call the Avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening.
    • His C Support with Caeldori is nearly identical to Gaius's C support with Cordelia.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Non-romantic example. He has a somewhat rough time thanking his dad and telling him that he loves him in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC, but is clearly putting his heart into it.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": As his first born son, Asugi's real name is also Saizo, though he's cast aside the name, at least during the course of the game.
  • Everyone Has Standards: During his Paralogue, he's shown to be working with a band of thieves led by Funke. However, once he finds out that he was hired to kill the people who lived in the mansion that the group was raiding, he immediately betrays Funke and makes a run for it. In his own words...
    "I'll steal anything that's not nailed down. But murder—like that? Nah. Crosses a line. And there's NO price he could pay me to do that."
  • Expy: Basically, Gaius as a ninja. He also shares Gaius' Sweet Tooth and his birthday is a day before his. He even cuts ties with the people he's with for similar reasons (ie. Not believing in murder.).
  • Family Theme Naming: All members of the Saizo clan name their eldest son "Saizo," a name that Asugi will eventually inherit.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "...Sorry, pops... it looks like... I can't be the next Saizo..."
    Heirs of Fate Asugi: "I thought I was tougher than this... Guess you never see it coming, huh? Dad... I'm sorry... but I won't carry on the Saizo name after all..."
  • Flanderization: Gaius's comical traits are a bit more pronounced on Asugi. This makes sense as Asugi (who's in his late teens, tops) didn't get to rack up an extensive criminal record like Gaius (a full-grown adult) and isn't constantly being suspected by others, so he's much less jaded and more friendly as a result. Taken Up to Eleven in the localization, in which Asugi's voice is considerably higher-pitched and goofier than Gaius's.
  • Foil: To Nina. Both are children who resent their father for leaving them in the Deeprealms, are introduced in a level where you have to prevent them from escaping, and act exactly the way their fathers feared they would. The difference is Nina tries to follow the path her father walked as a thief, despite his attempts to stop it, while Asugi acts against the path his father wants him to follow, despite his attempts to ensure it does. Unsurprisingly, they can get hitched in Revelation.
  • Guys Are Slobs: In a Call-Back to Gaius's supports with Cordelia in Awakening, Asugi's support with Caeldori has him being nagged by her for wearing dirty clothes and later on for not cleaning up after himself in the kitchen. Apparently, his mess was so bad it took ten soldiers to clean it up, and all he did was bake one cake.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • His supports with Saizo show that he actually worries quite a lot about inheriting his father's legacy.
    • His support with the Male Avatar also shows that he's a fantastic baker, able to replicate several recipes just from eating the desserts.
    • His supports with Hisame give quite the insight on what being a Hoshidan ninja means. According to him ninja are not allowed to form close bonds with others, so that even if they die in the line of duty the rest of the army would be unaffected by their death. They are also not allowed to let their faces be well-known, otherwise they would be unable to carry out undercover missions.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Just like the character he's an Expy of, many of his quotes are puns referring to his love of sweets. Some examples are "That's where the cookie crumbles!" after defeating an enemy, or "Just desserts!" for one of his Critical Hit quotes.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: A variation. At the end of his B support with Rhajat, after dealing with Rhajat being, well... Rhajat, he says "Criminy. I need a cinnamon roll..." in a way of being his version the trope.
  • Irony: Asugi is said to smell the best out of everyone in the army. Gaius (the character Asugi's based on) was noted for having horrible personal hygiene in his Supports with Cordelia.
  • Kissing Cousins:
    • In the Japanese version, he can S-Support with Midori, who is his cousin due to their fathers being brothers. Like Lucina and Owain, however, this is made more platonic in western versions.
    • Can be taken Up to Eleven in the Japanese version, if the player marry the two brothers to Hinoka and Sakura, then hook him and Midori up with each other for some double cousin loving.
  • The Lancer: Just like his father is Ryoma's Number Two, Asugi more or less takes this role towards Ryoma's son Shiro in the third part of the Heirs of Fate DLC.
  • Legacy Character: Subverted. He is named Saizo, just as his father was before him, and his before him, and so on. He has little interest is taking up his father's name and legacy, however.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Asugi often worries about living up to Saizo's name as he already has little in common with his father. Notably, Asugi is mischievous and light-hearted while Saizo is dead serious, and while Asugi loves sweets, Saizo can't stand them.
  • Love Confession
    You're sweeter than sweets my sweet! Let's celebrate our delicious love with a giant wedding cake! (whispers) I'm serious... biggest... cake... ever!
  • Magic Knight: His default growths are this being in the middle of the sliding scale. However, he usually lean towards one or the other due to how passing down growths and stat mods work. See below for more details.
  • Master of None: A rare example of this not being a bad thing. Due to having his father's balanced growths, Asugi starts off with a versatile stat growth spread that, on its own might not seem impressive, but due to his surprisingly high magic growth, is set up to where he is the only of the second generation to not have a mother who is outright a bad option for him. This means he is the most versatile Second Gen unit because he can fit perfectly for any situation, especially if he stays a Ninja thanks to his Mother determining his stats. For example, if his mother is a magical unit like Orochi, he can stay in the Ninja class and use the extremely powerful Flame Shuriken without problem and still have a solid strength and speed stat to match to use other Shuriken weapons, making him an extremely good Mage Killer. Meanwhile if his mother is martial unit like Kagero or Charlotte, he becomes the best hidden weapon unit in the game since any of the non-magical Shurikens will deal immense damage. Whenever pairing guides for generation two is brought up, Asugi is typically seen as a top tier unit as a result, and most of the time, you'll be stated to pick his mother from whats left since the only way he can be a bad unit is if you don't bother to even get him.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Not only is Asugi a Significant Anagram of Gaius, but it sounds similar to "Azuki", a type of red bean used in East Asian sweets. Asugi, of course, is known for his massive sweet tooth.
    • Additionally, no matter the version he chose his name because it means "Gray" in one of the languages spoken in the Deeprealm he grew up in.
    • In his localized A-Support with Saizo, he says that "Saizo" is a Hoshidan word for "color bringer." Saizo thinks he's reading too much into it, because that doesn't describe himself or his own father at all, but Asugi says it would be apt for someone who chose the wishy-washy, middle-of-the-road name "gray" to earn a name like "color bringer."
  • Meaningful Rename: His father named him Saizo, after himself and the previous four generations of their paternal ancestors. Asugi renamed himself because he didn't want the pressure of living up to that legacy, and more over, because he felt like Saizo cared more about that legacy than he ever cared about him as his son or as a person. If he and Saizo reach A-Support, he acknowledges that Saizo has made a real effort to meet him halfway by calling him "Asugi" and that he's decided that he does want to eventually rename himself again and be the sixth Saizo. Saizo is pleased, but tells him that he doesn't have to, and that five generations is long enough to let the name go. Furthermore, he threw the name aside once, and Saizo has no intention of relinquishing it to him so easily. Asugi agrees, and tells his father to call him "Saizo" if he ever thinks he's earned it. Asugi's epilogues all state that the Saizo named has continued to be passed down without fail.
  • My Beloved Smother: Whoever Asugi's mother is, they will turn out to be this, to the point of following him on an espionage mission without his knowledge.
  • Mythology Gag: Asugi's paralogue begins with him running with a questionable crowd, but bailing on them when he discovers that they plan to assassinate a very important clan. Similar circumstances surround Gaius' introduction, where he bails on Validar when he discovers that they are planning to kill the Exalt.
    • One of Asugi's possible mothers in Revelation is Charlotte, who gives him the Fighter class. With this he would have an equivalent to every class that Gaius does. The other is Beruka, who gets Fighter as her secondary class.
  • The Nicknamer: In the localized version, similarly to his Awakening counterpart, Asugi gives nicknames to other characters, which often describe their personalities or is out of sarcasm. To him the Avatar is "Boss", female Kana is "Little Miss Dragon", Dwyer is "Naps", Sophie is "Fumbles", Midori is "Doc", Hisame is "Gramps", Mitama is "Star", Rhajat is "Sunshine", and Ignatius is "Fraidycat".
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: In his introductory scene with Funke, he's rather flippant with both him and Saizo, but is shown to be a decent person who refuses to kill for money.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "Piece of cake!"
    "This is gonna be tasty!"
    "Just desserts!"
    "Oooh, piñata!"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Manages to be both. He is the blue to Shiro's red, and the red to Hisame's blue.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Asugi has a passion for baking, and most of his confections have a cutesy aesthetic. He even bonds with Ignatius over their mutual love of cute things, but while Ignatius is shy about it, Asugi proudly declares that there's nothing wrong with that.
  • Reincarnation Romance: It's easier to miss compared to Rhajat and Caledori's implications, but in his S-support with the Avatar she thinks it's a start to a beautiful life together. Asugi's response is "This life and the next one, too."
    • And this could potentially apply if the player pairs him with Caeldori or Rhajat while pairing Gaius with either Cordelia or Tharja.
  • Shared Family Quirks: If Sakura is Asugi's mother, he inherits her sweet tooth. A good proof is their Children Scramble talk.
    • If Charlotte is his mother, he inherits her enjoyment of being popular with the opposite sex. Thankfully, he's also inherited his father's sense of reason, so he's able to rein it in.
  • Significant Anagram: Of Gaius. His Japanese name is an anagram of "Guire," Gaius's Japanese name.
  • Supreme Chef: Asugi is exceptionally good at cooking, especially when it comes to making sweets. He is able to recreate dishes just by tasting them without knowing their exact recipes.
  • Sweet Tooth: Asugi loves candy and sweets. He even makes his own.
  • Vocal Dissonance: A strange example in the English version. Asugi's voice actor, Gideon Emery, is the same actor who portrayed Gaius in Fire Emblem Awakening. However, Emery's voice for Asugi is noticeably a few octaves higher than Gaius' voice, while the other actors reprising their roles or playing the Expy children sound very similar to their original performances.

    Hisame 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_66.png
"I have to fight my own battles. Starting now."

The son of Hinata. Very serious and a stickler for protocol, in complete contrast to his father's laid-back and informal attitude. He is careful about everything he does. Loves tea and pickles above all else. Acts the oldest despite his age. His Birthday is September 27th.

Class: Samurai, Swordmaster (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Mitsuhiro Ichiki (Japanese), Roger Rose (English)

  • Adorkable: Shows more in his conversations with women, especially female Kana.
  • Always Someone Better: It turns out that this is how he actually feels about Hinata, despite what his comments may suggest. Hisame is actually very envious of how carefree and laid-back his father is, and hates how uptight he is.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: While Hinata doesn't try to embarrass him, Hisame is quite annoyed by his father's antics in their Supports nonetheless.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido females, as well as second generation Nohr characters Velouria and Ophelia in Revelation.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Caeldori, as both are the most mature and serious of Hoshido's second generation, though it appears at first that they differ in how they view their fathers—Caeldori idolizes Subaki, while Hisame is embarrassed by Hinata. However, it's then revealed that Hisame is actually just envious of his father's carefree and lovable nature, and secretly wishes he could be more like him.
  • Bishōnen: He has a slender build and pretty face, in contrast to his rugged father.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: A mild case. In his own words, he has trouble talking to the opposite gender.
  • Character Exaggeration: Hisame's love for pickles is just an incredibly minor detail in the original Japanese version. In the English translation it's a very bizarre obsession, to the point where several of his Private Quarters quotes are pickle-based puns.
  • The Comically Serious: His usually-mature nature turns him into this when dealing with some of the wackier characters, such as Ophelia and his own father.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "It was... a brief life... Forgive me... for going on ahead..."
    Heirs of Fate Hisame: "So this is the end, huh? Well... can't no one say... I didn't give it my all... Just a shame... I couldn't fight... to the finish..."
  • The Generic Guy: He's rather undercharacterized compared to the other child units, being largely just a serious guy (which there are no shortage of in this game) to contrast his Hot-Blooded father, lacking the quirks and Hidden Depths others have. The localization at the very least gives him a comedic quirk to give him more personality. Then again, that helps him stand out in his own right; amongst the second generation, he's the Comically Serious Straight Man among a larger-than-life cast of characters. His straightforwardness may as well be a quirk.
  • Informed Flaw: While he's not exactly charming, he carries himself just fine in most of his supports with the girls despite supposedly being terrible at talking to them.
  • In-Series Nickname: Asugi calls Hisame "Gramps" because he's way more mature than his age would suggest.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: As a result of his father's stats, Hisame's base growths are fairly balanced between Hp, Strength, Speed, and Skill, which are all around 40%, with his Defense growth being 30%. His mother's growths will typically make him either a Fragile Speedster, Mighty Glacier, or a Lightning Bruiser, depending on who the mother is.
  • Large Ham: Anytime he's talking about pickles.
  • The Lancer: He becomes this to Kiragi in the Heirs of Fate DLC, mirroring his father's relationship with Kiragi's father.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Butts heads with his father Hinata in his paralogue and parent supports, due to Hinata being fun-loving and laid back, while Hisame is much more serious and cool-headed.
  • Love Confession:
    Our love is stronger than the world's most pungent pickle. Won't you dive into the brine with me?
  • Nice Guy: Though he can appear cold and aloof on first impression, Hisame is actually pretty nice and many of his supports feature him trying to help out whoever he's talking to, even the odder girls like Rhajat and Ophelia.
  • Not So Different: The male Avatar points out that Hisame's not completely different from his father, as they both have issues with women.
  • Not So Stoic: While he's often calm and serious minded, he does break his stoicism from time to time, especially around women.
  • Only Sane Man: Of the second generation. Even the similarly serious Caeldori has her moments of whimsy.
  • Parental Title Characterization: Hinata's a bit surprised that Hisame's started calling him "Father" rather than "Dad," since it doesn't seem like that long since Hinata visited him, but Hisame then reminds him that time passes more quickly in the Deeprealms.
  • Porn Stash: Played for Laughs and subverted. In his C-support with his mother he will be very possessive of a locked diary that she found, leading her to remark that "a boy his age would have all kinds of thoughts best kept from his mother". It turns out it's just childhood memories.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "This is the end!"
    "Prepare for oblivion!"
    "Your time has come!"
    "Watch and learn!"
  • Retired Badass: In the epilogue, he eventually retires from fighting and becomes a renowned professor.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
  • Teens Are Short: Averted. According to the end of Hisame's recruitment Paralogue, he's at least as tall as (if not taller than) his father, much to Hinata's chagrin.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He loves pickles to the point of obsession, and they're often brought it in his Support conversations and DLC lines.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Hisame used to be a Daddy's Boy who would come running whenever Hinata came to visit. Unfortunately, Hinata allowed enough time to pass since his last visit that Hisame is now an angsty teenager who both loves and resents his father, regarding him as immature and at the same time envying how good he is with other people.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Hisame is very serious, especially when compared to his Hot-Blooded father.
  • When He Smiles: Midori comments in their supports that Hisame has a nice laugh (and she apparently used to be put off by his serious expressions before then).
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: His supports with Velouria reveal that he's afraid of spiders.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: He acts much older than he actually is. Asugi even calls him "Gramps", despite actually being older than Hisame.

"Hmm? What's does "selling" mean? Or this "dead" thing? Weird. Whatever it is, sounds like fun."

The daughter of Kaden. She has an innocent and cheerful personality. She is very active and loves to play around. She is the least afraid of things in the army. Her birthday is October 20th.

Class: Kitsune, Nine-Tails (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Mitsuki Nakae (Japanese), Elizabeth Daily (English, Fates), Lexi Klein (English, Heroes)

  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido males, as well as second-generation Nohr characters Forrest and Ignatius in Revelation.
  • Birds of a Feather: Selkie and Male Kana, who hit it off immediately and bond over their shared ability to transform (while both thinking the other's transformation is cool) as well as their similar, unashamedly silly personalities. This is the main reason why Selkie is the only S-Support Male Kana has who immediately returns his affections after his love confession.
  • Blood Knight: Has a few shades of this, since warfare and slaughtering the enemy is just more fun and games to her. She even lets out a giggle when scoring a Critical Hit.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She's an adorable fox girl.
  • Evil Laugh: When she is about to do a critical attack or skill activate, she cackles like a maniac. She even sometimes does a sinister giggle when she hits her enemy with a critical attack.
  • Famous Last Words:
    “How laughable...it's because all I ever did was play...I...I'm getting...sleepy...”
    Heirs of Fate Selkie: "Heheh... I hoped that I could play longer, but... I'm already worn out... If we ever meet again, everyone... let's play some more..."
  • Fragile Speedster: Defaults to this usually thanks to her growths being focused on high Speed, but low Defense. Most of her mothers also keep her this way, with few being able to bump her bulk up.
  • Genki Girl: As said above she has an innocent and cheerful personality.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Nearly all of her potential mothers are human. The lone exception, a Female Avatar, is half dragon.
  • Healing Factor: She'll learn Even Better as a Nine-Tails, which heals a portion of her HP every even-numbered turn.
  • I Will Find You: In Heirs of Fate, she finds Kaden's scarf and nothing else. She vows to find him despite this.
  • Interspecies Romance: She's already the product of one, so any romance she falls into is this by default.
  • Kitsune: She's a fox spirit.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Like her dad, she looks mostly human but has fox ears and tail.
  • Like Father, Like Son: If her mother is Peri in the Revelation route, she will inherit her Blood Knight personality, where killing people is fun and games to her.
  • Love Confession:
    Aww, you're the best! Get ready for a love tackle!
  • Mage Killer: Her father's growths often end up with her being this way, on account of a solid Res growth before her mother steps in. Thanks to a good Speed and serviceable Strength stat, she can usually tank enemy mages, and then finish them off once she gets close.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: To the more dour guys, such as Dwyer and Ignatius. She constantly tries to drag them places and get them to enjoy life.
  • Meaningful Name: Like the rest of the beast people characters, she is named after a fabric. Selkie is derived from "silk", which is her Japanese namesake.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: If her mother is the Avatar, she's capable of being both a Kitsune and a Dragon via reclass options, though not at the same time.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "My bite is worse than my bark!"
    "Ready or not, here I come!"
    "Ahahaha!"
    "Watch out, I play rough!"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: She is the red to Velouria's blue.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Both her and Kaden love cackling in the midst of combat, and they have similarly childish and playful personalities.
    • If her mother is Peri in the Revelation route, she will inherit her Blood Knight tendencies, where killing is fun and games to her.
  • Skunk Stripe: She'll have a lock of hair in a different color than her blonde bob, the exact color depending on which girl Kaden married.
  • Team Pet: Her motivations are those of a pet — having fun and demanding praise and attention from the people around her (though this might just be how she is with the Avatar).
  • Theme Naming: In the English version should Azura be her mother. The word "Selkie" most commonly refers to the aquatic shape-shifting seals of Irish and Scottish lore. This fits the naming conventions of Azura and Shigure whose names were chosen to reflect their association with water. See the above Meaningful Name for details.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Soybean powder, according to what she says in the bean food tile.
    “I love soybean powder! It's so sweet and nutty, and it feels funny on my tongue!”
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Averted, she is the only character to have any real reaction to the fact that the Avatar and Kana are dragons as her supports with both of them surround the fact.
  • Womanchild: Despite being a teenager, she's so childlike in personality that she doesn't quite comprehend in her Paralogue that the poachers she's fighting are there to kill and skin her, requiring Kaden to tell her that they're playing a game called "Hunt the Humans".

    Mitama 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_679.png
"Beseeches he me? / I am the Maiden of Z's. / At the least say please."

The daughter of Azama. She loves to sleep, and can even be found napping in really bizarre places if she gets tired enough. Often speaks in haiku to express her feelings. Spends the most amount of time dreaming, more so than anyone else in the army. Her birthday is June 26th.

Class: Shrine Maiden, Priestess (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Azusa Matou (Japanese), Danielle Judovits (English)

  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido males, as well as second generation Nohr characters Siegbert and Percy in Revelation.
  • Birds of a Feather:
    • Bonds with Shigure in their supports over their mutual love for the arts.
    • Her supports with Dwyer have them bonding over healing people and their shared love of sleeping (when they're not having Snark-to-Snark Combat that is).
  • Brutal Honesty: She doesn't exactly mince words when criticizing the male Avatar's inability to compose a proper haiku, flat out asking if he even knows how to count.
  • Cultured Badass: Having been raised in a Shinto-like shrine by a group of shrine maidens who encouraged her to read, Mitama is an avid fan of haiku poetry and often drops verses in conversation. Mitama's personal skill allows her to heal two allies directly above and below her for 5 health, and Mitama, herself, for 7 health, mimicking the structure of a haiku.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her official portrait has pink hair and eyes.
  • Cute Bookworm: She's cute as a button, has super cutesy eyes, and expresses herself through poetry.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: She literally has stars in her eyes, which are supposedly inherited from Azama.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "I should be... reciting a death poem... but I'm so sleepy, I..."
    Heirs of Fate Mitama: "Everyone dies... Death comes for us all someday... There's no need to fear... I only wish... I could have seen... how it ended for you all..."
  • Girlish Pigtails: Two, tied with paper ribbons.
  • A Glass in the Hand: A variation; her "angry" sprite shows her breaking the pen she always holds with just one hand.
  • Heavy Sleeper: She loves sleeping, so much that Azama believes her to be a Lazy Bum. In the Heirs of Fate DLC's, she was asleep when her home was attacked and she almost didn't make it, but Azama pulled a You Shall Not Pass! to save her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's irritable, antisocial, and full of snark. However, most of this can be attributed to her constantly being disrupted from her naps, and she's usually in a better mood once she's fully awakened.
  • Like Father, Like Son: If there's anything Mitama managed to inherit from her father, it was his sharp tongue.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: She acts nothing like Sakura should she be her mother, who is a Shrinking Violet while Mitama is a Deadpan Snarker, despite both being shrine maidens.
  • Love Confession:
    How can it be that at the happiest moment of my life, I cannot think of a haiku? Oh, well. You know I love you, right?
  • Miko: As a Shrine Maiden, her outfit and starting class essentially make her this.
  • My Greatest Failure: The Heirs of Fate DLC version of Mitama comes from a failed version of her recruitment paralogue, where she napped right through her village being invaded until it was too late to turn the tide. She's also rather crossed by Azama's Heroic Sacrifice for her sake.
  • Not a Morning Person: As expected of a Heavy Sleeper. In her support conversations with her father he tries to get her to wake early, which she finally accomplishes by staying awake through the night.
  • Odd Friendship: With Female Kana, who admires her skill in poetry. Mitama, for her part, doesn't mind the hyperactive girl's presence and helps her become better at haikus.
  • Off-Model: Mitama's in-game portrait is not scaled to match the rest of the characters, making her look noticeably tiny in comparison to say, her father, during their supports. Even when she's supposed to be tiny it's obvious that her portraits have lower resolution compared to the others.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "The pen is mightiest of all!"
    "Nap time!"
    "Reflect on this!"
    "Death comes for us all!"
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • She has her father's sharp tongue, slightly nihilistic outlook, and his slightly jerkass personality, though this only really comes through for Mitama when she's being annoyed.
    • If her mother is either Kagero or Azura, they both have an appreciation for the arts, further followed with the latter in that her potential brother Shigure will also have this.
    • If mothered by Effie, she inherits her love for exercising and is as ripped as her.
  • Sleepy Head: Often sleeping and napping, which tends to annoy her parents.
  • Supreme Chef: Gameplay wise, if she's the chef in the restaurant, the stuff she cooks boost all of the characters' stats (+1 for all stats, additional +1 for random stat) for the next battle. She is in the same cooking category (Delicious) as Caeldori, Mozu, Dwyer, and Flora.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Freshly made rice with pickled plum:
    “Fresh-harvested rice / Pickled plum placed over it / Heaven in a bowl...”
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pink hair in her default portrait, which makes Mitama and Soleil unique as they doesn't share their hair color with their father or the person they're an Expy of. But unlike Soleil, who seemed to inherit her hair color from her grandmother, Olivia, Mitama doesn't have an explanation. One can only assume Azama is closely related to someone with pink hair.
  • White Mage: As a Shrine Maiden. Can become a Combat Medic (as a Priestess) or a Red Mage (as an Onmyoji) upon promotion.

    Caeldori (Matoi) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_68.png
"I'll never be as perfect as you are, Father. But I'd like to start trying to be!"

The daughter of Subaki. She's a very gifted individual, though she often downplays her strengths and constantly works to improve herself. Can be a bit snippy towards others if they try to skip out on chores or do something disagreeable, but she ultimately means well. She falls in love more easily than the other members of the army. Her birthday is July 6th.

Class: Sky Knight, Falcon Knight (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Eimi Okada (Japanese) Julie Ann Taylor (English)

  • The Ace: She is, if anything, even more skilled than her father, in everything from fighting to logistics, as her supports with her parents indicate.
  • A-Cup Angst: Implied to be insecure about the size of her breast, just like Cordelia.
  • Adorkable: This comes through in certain supports, most notably with the Male Avatar and Siegbert.
  • Affectionate Nickname: If Hana is her mother, she calls her "Caeldy" during their parent-child supports.
  • Always Someone Better: She sees her beloved father as this. Her mother will ironically end up feeling this way about Caeldori, only for her to reveal she also views her mother this way. In their supports, she also views the Male Avatar as this.
  • The Apprentice: She self-appoints herself as the male Avatar's protégé in their supports.
  • Birds of a Feather:
    • With Hisame, as they are the most mature and serious of Hoshido's second generation. However, they experience some tension over their opinions of their respective fathers—Caeldori idolizes hers, Hisame not so much. Though it later turns out that Hisame does admire his father after all.
    • Downplayed in her C Support with Shiro; he mentions that both are more or less in the shadows of their respective fathers, Subaki and Ryoma respectively, with both of them agreeing for different reasons.
    • In Revelation, she's this with Siegbert. Despite their insecurities and status in lives, they're very humble and caring people, who just want to be the best for the sake of others.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido males, as well as second generation Nohr characters Siegbert and Ignatius in Revelation.
  • Call-Back:
    • Her C Support with Asugi involves her chastising him over his poor hygiene, similar to the C Support between Cordelia and Gaius in Fire Emblem Awakening.
    • In her A Support with Mitama, she talks about showing her the book "Falling for Her in a Fortnight", which has a similar name to the book "Make Him Fall for You in a Fortnight" mentioned by Cordelia and Severa in Fire Emblem Awakening.
  • Covert Pervert: If the aforementioned "Falling for Her in a Fortnight" is anything like "Make Him Fall for You in a Fortnight" was implied by Cordelia and Severa, Caeldori wants to share a porn book (or trashy romance novel) with Mitama.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In her default portrait, Caeldori's hair and eye colors match. If her mother is Hinoka, Sakura or Selena, this can happen in-game by being either downplayed (Hinoka and Sakura) or played straight (Selena).
  • Easter Egg: If Selena is her mother, she shows up at the end of Caeldori's Paralogue to say a few lines. Selena's A Support conversation with Caeldori also has extra dialogue where Selena will compare her daughter to her own mother.
  • Expy: She's pretty much a younger version of Cordelia from Fire Emblem Awakening. Both are pegasus-riding classes, have a lot of talent, fall in love way too easily, and are into romance novels. Caeldori's design is even heavily based off of Cordelia's.
  • Famous Last Words:
    But... I'm not done yet... I'll just have to be perfect... in the next life.
    Heirs of Fate Caeldori: "Did I falter when I saw my opponent? Or... is that just an excuse for failure... I was never perfect, Father... Not like you..."
  • Generation Xerox:
    • She inherits much of her father's many talents and her perfectionist personality. Double so if her mother is Selena/Severa, who in turn got that from her mother, Cordelia. Though much of this is the result of her trying to live up to her father's reputation.
    • If Selena ends up as Caeldori's mother, Caeldori inherit Selena's inferiority complex in terms of her relationship to her mother.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She constantly downplays her talents when talking to Subaki in their Supports.
  • Identical Granddaughter: If Selena (Severa) is her mother, Caeldori ends up being a complete dead ringer for her grandmother, Cordelia.
  • Identical Stranger: In the Before Awakening DLC, Chrom mistakes her for Cordelia whether she is mothered by Selena or not, but he realizes she is indeed someone else.
  • Jumped at the Call: In her Paralogue, she immediately throws herself at the chance of joining the main group.
    "I want to help! I really, really do! I'm tired of sitting home alone and waiting to be of some use. I'll never be as perfect as you are, Father, but I'd like to start trying to be!"
  • Love Confession:
    Our love is eternal; somehow I just know it. If we cross paths again in a distant future, dear love... promise you'll remember me. Promise...
  • Meaningful Name: Her Japanese name, Matoi, is a kind of flag used in Edo period Japan by firemen to notify people of a fire near or within a building. This is referenced in her Supports with Shiro, where the two have several conversations regarding fire safety.
  • Mentor Ship: Has this sort of relationship with the Avatar if they S-Support.
  • Mercury's Wings: Her headband is adorned with a pair of avian wings, indicating her default class.
  • Mythology Gag: Caeldori's possible mothers in Revelation are Selena and Nyx, who pass along Mercenary and Dark Mage respectively. These are Cordelia's reclass options in Awakening.
  • Nice Girl: Caeldori is very humble, caring and very much willing to help others.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "I'd run if I were you!"
    "Say your goodbyes!"
    "You're not going to like this!"
    "No more messing around!"
  • Reincarnation Romance: In her Love Confession (see above) she implies that her resemblance to Cordelia isn't a coincidence, as well as a connection between the Avatars of Awakening and Fates, meaning the player S-Supporting with both is a case of this trope. Of course, if this is true, pairing Selena/Severa with Subaki might make Cordelia/Caeldori a case of My Own Grandma...
    • This trope also applies if the player pairs Caeldori with Asugi while pairing Cordelia and Gaius.
    • And to rub it in further, Caeldori is very impressed when meeting Chrom.
    • In a variation, there's also pairing Caeldori with Siegbert, who is an expy of Chrom, and Shiro, whose attitude is similar to Chrom's.
  • Significant Anagram: "Caeldori" and her name in the Japanese version, "Matoi," both contain the same letters as Cordelia's name and her name in the Japanese version, Tiamo, reinforcing her expy status even further.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
  • Supreme Chef: Gameplay wise, if you make her the chef in the restaurant, the stuff she cooks boost all of your characters' stats (+1 for all stats, additional +1 for random stat) for the next battle. She is in the same cooking category (Delicious) as Mitama, Mozu, Dwyer, and Flora.
  • Tempting Fate: In her A support with Shiro, Caeldori comments about Shiro not yelling about fire safety. During said support, a fire breaks out.
  • Unrequited Tragic Maiden: Like Cordelia, but in a different way. Apparently, she once was in love with one of her caretakers but was turned down, and ever since then she's crushed on other guys who were unavailable for one or another reason. Naturally, this bad luck in love will finish once she falls in love in-game.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Played with. Subaki is already proud of Caeldori, but her self-deprecation makes her convinced that he's just being soft on her and she wants to earn his "true" respect.

    Rhajat (Syalla) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_69.png
Click here to see Rhajat in Fire Emblem Heroes 
"Hee hee hee! You truly want to tangle with me?"

The daughter of Hayato. Appears as a boss leading an army of Faceless. She is extremely prejudiced and stalks those she deems compatible with her. Thinks her father is childish. Deeply delusional and has a one-track mind. She stalks people who tickle her fancy and makes it her daily duty to research dubious spells. Has the darkest thoughts. Or in the Japanese version . Her birthday is April 1st.

Class: Diviner, Onmyoji (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Kana Akutsu (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She has dark hair in her original portrait, but will only fit in (in a No Social Skills way) if she has a dark-haired mother (like Mozu, Nyx, Kagero or a black-haired/brunette Female Avatar).
  • Battle Couple: Can marry both genders of the Avatar and any of the second generation Hoshido males, as well as second generation Nohr characters Forrest and Percy in Revelation.
  • Badass Bisexual: Bisexual and a Lady of Black Magic in training, and even more so if given a mother capable of drawing out her potential.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The reason behind Tharja's obsession with the Avatar isn't really explained in Awakening. For Rhajat, it's because they saved her from a rogue Faceless that she summoned.
  • Bi the Way: The Avatar's gender has absolutely no bearing on her feelings, but, like Tharja, she has other potential partners too.
  • Bonus Boss: Fighting and recruiting her is optional. A player who doesn't feel like it can simply send out Hayato to talk her out from bringing up more Faceless.
  • Brutal Honesty: Rhajat has no brain-to-mouth filter and claims to not care one bit what others think of her. It's not always true, however, judging by her supports with Hayato.
    Rhajat [to her mother]: "Those villagers will be wary of me regardless of what I do. Maybe it doesn't really matter [...] My sole concern wasn't their perception of me. It was their health. The most important thing was to find a cure before the sickness got out of control. All I really cared about was you trusting me."
  • Call-Back: Asugi's nickname for her is "Sunshine", the nickname Gaius gave to Tharja in Fire Emblem Awakening.
  • Creepy Child: Mentioned to like cursing her father and mother.
  • Custom Uniform: Downplayed example. As a nod to Dark Mage Tharja, the character she's an Expy of, she has dark, translucent material covering the exposed parts of her Diviner outfit.
  • Cry Cute: She tears up in her and Hayato's A support.
    Hayato:: Why are you staring at your feet? Won't you look me in the eye?
    Rhajat: *sniffle*
  • Cute and Psycho: Has a VERY distinctive laugh and casually makes jokes about hexing (or even killing) people.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She's a creepy teenage girl with No Social Skills and rather disturbing habits and powers... while at the same time she yearns for love and affection, especially from the Avatar.
  • Determinator: If the below is to be taken literally, it basically means that even death can't get between her and the one she loves.
  • Developers' Foresight:
    • Should the Female Avatar become her mother, the end cutscene of her paralogue ends up with Rhajat apologizing to her, with the Female Avatar telling her that the incident didn't matter as long as she was OK.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: She gets quite angry at Shigure when he tries to bond with her, explicitly telling him not to feel sorry for her.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her default pose of her biting her thumbnail was in fact first seen in a sketch of Tharja by Kozaki, the character designer. And with the possibility that Rhajat and Tharja are one and the same...
  • Evil Laugh: The localization gave her a pretty wicked cackle.
  • Expy: Is an almost exact duplicate of Tharja from Fire Emblem Awakening, which is noticed by the magazine that revealed her. They even share the same voice actress and both her Japanese and English names are anagrams of Tharja's Japanese and English names, respectively.
    • Though with the hints that Tharja might be the past life/reincarnation of Rhajat, the Expy isn't really an Expy.
  • Famous Last Words:
    I see... a distant sandstorm. Will you be there, waiting...?
    Heirs of Fate Rhajat: "I feel so foolish... being cut down here... but no matter. This dreadful scene... all this fighting... It will soon be forgotten..."
  • Flanderization: Downplayed in the localization. While her Stalker with a Crush behavior towards the Avatar is more pronounced, especially in their supports together, she still has her many Pet the Dog moments and overall nicer behavior compared to the character she's an Expy of.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She was actually saved by the Avatar as a little girl, but both of them forgot about it until they met again later.
  • Gayngst: In the Japanese version of her S-rank support with the female Avatar, she expresses doubt toward her own feelings and mentions that she wishes she could have been reborn as a man so that she could protect the Avatar and for the Avatar to love her back. Fortunately, the Avatar then accepts her feelings and says she'll love Rhajat just as she is. The localization changed this however, making Rhajat's support the same as the male Avatar's - probably to avert the trope.
  • Gay Option: A female Avatar can marry her. Interestingly, they could be said to be each other's gay option, since they both have supports with the opposite sex.
  • Gender-Blender Name: While her Japanese name of "Syalla" is clearly feminine, her English name of "Rhajat" is a male name in India.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: A snarky and creepy young Spellcaster with a dark personality.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears an odd circlet, which is rather similar to the headband her father wears.
  • Hidden Buxom: Similar to Tharja, her art in Fates obscures her chest. Her art in Fire Emblem Heroes shows off her assets well, so to speak.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: For such a creepy and apparently fearless girl, she does desire to have more friends. She straight up says it in her supports with Selkie that she's wanted to strike a friendship with her from the start, even if she goes Tsundere when Selkie hears her:
    Rhajat: Let us make a pact. We will spur one another on, intervene on each other's behalf... and otherwise do all the things that friends do, for all eternity.
    Selkie: Uhhh... O-OK! Sounds good! I'm in for your weird pact, Rhajat! Especially the part about us being friends, heehee!
    Rhajat: Phew...I finally said it. Honesty wasn't as bad as I was expecting. It may have been a circuitous way to make friends, but it is my way.
    Selkie: Hmm? Did you say something?
    Rhajat: O-only the usual, my friend Selkie. Praise the gods...and their divine vessels...
  • Ironic Nickname: Asugi's nickname for her is "Sunshine", which is totally at odds with her dark demeanor.
  • I Will Find You: What she says she'd been doing for her entire life ever since she met the Avatar when she was a little girl. Taken Up to Eleven when it turns out she might have done this across incarnations and dimensions. And she declares no matter how many times she's reborn, she'll find the Avatar once more to fall in love with them all over again.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Hayato is an arrogant kid who is deeply concerned with how others perceive him, and is secretly afraid of the dark. Rhajat, meanwhile, is a young woman who couldn't care less what others think of her unless it's her parents, and loves dark places.
  • Lost Food Grievance: The Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC shows that no one should get between a Sakura-mothered Rhajat and her bean jam-filled rice cakes if they appreciate their lives.
  • Love at First Sight: In her support with the Avatar, she claims she doesn't quite remember the first time they met, but she does know the second she did that she fell in love with them and has been chasing them ever since. If the Avatar is her mother though it's Averted.
  • Love Confession:
    I've got you right where I want you. And I'm never going to let go...
  • May–December Romance: Regardless of gender, the Avatar is old enough to be Rhajat's mother or father. In fact, it's possible for a Female Avatar to actually be Rhajat's mother, should she marry Hayato.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • It is utterly unsurprising that this game's version of Tharja is willing to go for the Avatar regardless of gender.
    • Like Tharja, her trait was changed to "Has the darkest thoughts" in the localization, and in Japan her trait was that she had the "best thighs in the army", much like Tharja's own trait being "has the best body in the army".
    • Rhajat's possible mothers in Revelation are Nyx and Effie, who gives her Dark Mage and Knight respectively. These are 2 of Tharja's classes in Awakening.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Not as Stripperific as Tharja was, but the standard Spellcaster class' outfit is still pretty revealing. Also referenced in her character trait of "has the best thighs in the army", which is a nod to Tharja's "has the best body in the army".
  • Opposites Attract: With Male Kana. She explicitly considers him as different from her as possible, and yet admits that she loves being around him in their S-support. Eventually, they end up being lovers, as stated in their paired ending.
  • Pet the Dog: She'd rather let people accuse her of having cursed them rather than getting distracted from finding the cure for the illness they suffer, since she's that concerned for their well-being.
  • Power Incontinence: According to her supports with Shigure, when she was younger she sometimes lost control of her magic.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "I want your skull as a trophy!"
    "Hope you like hell!"
    "Let's see what this does!"
    "Heeheehahahahahaha!"
  • Reincarnation Romance: Her love confession and death quote imply that she's either Tharja's reincarnation or a preincarnated version of Tharja, and that Fates' Avatar is the reincarnated/preincarnated version of Robin from Awakening. The player can potentially hook them up in both games. This trope also applies if she romances Asugi, and had her hook up with Gaius in Awakening.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Another shared trait with Tharja. Rhajat doesn't seem to know how attractive she is, or at the very least doesn't enjoy people commenting on her looks. In her support with Percy, she was plotting to curse the clerk at a clothing store because they kept giving flattering remarks whenever she tried on an outfit, which she claims "ruined her concentration".
  • Rescue Romance: Potentially with the Avatar, who saves her from a surviving Faceless at the end of her paralogue.
  • Second Love: She's obsessed with the Avatar, but the player can have her fall in love with and marry other people.
  • Sensual Spandex: Just like Tharja, and she's the only non-Dark Mage to have it.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Should her mother be Nyx in Revelation, she will inherit her mother's (former) love of cursing other people.
    • Should her mother be Rinkah, according to their A support, she inherits her mother's headstrong nature.
    • If her mother is Sakura, the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC reveals that she has both of her parents' Sweet Tooth. (And that no one shall get between her and her sweets.)
    • If she's mothered by Oboro, in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds she says that she has both her mother's "Demon Face" and sewing skills.
    • Hoshidan Festival of Bonds states that a Rhajat mothered by Azura inherits her mother's talent and love of singing.
  • She's Got Legs: Her character description says as much, and she's identified as having "the best thighs in the army". Though, her bosom is also nothing to sneeze at.
  • Sick Episode: Rhajat's generic support with her mother are about the girl trying to cast a protective spell over a bunch of villagers to protect them from an upcoming illness. However, she casted it too late for it to be effective and the village people mistakenly thought she had cursed them instead. (And she didn't exactly defend herself, either) Rhajat's mother is caught in this conflict and, while she does her best to take care of the ill, she also tries to reassure Rhajat about not blaming her for anything. In the end, Rhajat manages to raise a plant that will make a good cure (which is why she didn't defend herself, it'd take time away from her research), so her mother is very proud of her.
  • Significant Anagram: Her name is an anagram of Tharja's name. Same goes for her Japanese name, Syalla, being an anagram of Sallya.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Like her inspiration from Fire Emblem Awakening, she has a very unhealthy obsession with the Avatar, regardless of gender.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Apparently, Rhajat's way to show her care for other people is to stalk them.
  • Stepford Snarker: She hides her insecurities behind her snark and creepiness.
    Hayato: I understand why you want to put on a brave face. But you are my daughter. I know you.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Very, very rarely she shows her soft side. If she's Kana's mother, she's surprisingly doting and attentive - specially in the Child Scramble DLC.
  • Supreme Chef: She has her own cooking flair, "Dedicated," which produces food that matches the "Exquisite" flair in quality... but only enough for one person, the Avatar.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Rhajat explains that she used to be cheerful and outgoing when she was younger, but her personality completely changed after she nearly died from falling from a cliff.

"If I can't manage a few incursions here...if I couldn't defeat them...I wouldn't be worthy of being called your son."

The son of Xander. He is kind, serious, straightforward, and a culturally refined elite. Despite his strengths, he sees his father as an insurmountable paragon that he has no hope of matching. Has the whitest teeth. His birthday is May 28th.

Class: Cavalier, Paladin (Heirs of Fate: V and End)
Voiced by: Kengo Kawanishi (Japanese), David Stanbra (English, Fates), Todd Haberkorn (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)


  • Accidental Pervert: His supports with Soleil start with him walking in on her when she was changing clothes. Not that Soleil cares.
  • Always Someone Better: He has his father placed on such a high pedestal that he doesn't believe he could ever hope to match him and develops quite an inferiority complex because of it.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Often times, he'll apologize if he manages to land an OHKO on his enemy in-game.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr females (except Soleil in the Western versions), as well as second generation Hoshido characters Mitama and Caeldori in Revelation.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Forrest in his Supports. He is very protective and defensive of his cousin, to the point of My Beloved Smother degrees until Forrest calls him out on it.
  • Birds of a Feather: In Revelation, he's this with Caeldori. Despite their insecurities and status in lives, they're very humble and caring people, who just want to be the best for the sake of others.
  • Bookworm: He spent most of his time in the Deeprealms reading all manner of books, and still devotes three hours a day to reading.
  • Chick Magnet: His personal skill, Gallantnote , has the lead unit get +2 damage if female.
  • Custom Uniform: His default Cavalier outfit has a purple-and-black motif similar to his father's.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Rarely comes up, but Siegbert has quite the wit. Case in point, his C Support with Female Kana:
    Kana: Hi, Siegbert! I'm trying to—but these math problems aren't very interesting. I mean, why split all your apples among the horses... when you should just make a bunch of apple pies and have a horse party?
    Siegbert: Please invite me if you ever have that party, Kana.
  • Eternally Pearly-White Teeth: Implied to have these according to his profile.
  • Expy: Of Chrom, possibly, though his resemblance is much more subtle than Rhajat, Caeldori, and Asugi. Both are wise warrior princes who have both a family member they greatly respect and want to emulate (Emmeryn for Chrom, Xander for Siegbert), and another whose violent past they want to avoid (Chrom's unnamed father, and Garon). Siegbert's birthday is one day after Chrom's, as well.
    • His self-deprecation and desire to live up to his father's legacy also heavily harkens back to Seliph. Thankfully for him his father doesn't get burned to death..
  • Famous Last Words:
    "In the end... I could never... catch up to my father..."
    Heirs of Fate Siegbert: "I'm sorry... everyone... but this is the end for me... I'll never be King of Nohr... after all..."
  • Foil: To Shiro as the sons of Ryoma and Xander, the Avatar's two older brothers. Shiro grew up unknowing of his royal heritage and greatly resents Ryoma, while Siegbert was fully aware of his royal status and idolizes Xander to a fault.
  • Gentleman and a Scholar: He is a polite, chivalrous young man who is very well-read and diligent in his studies.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Siegbert is very dismissive of his own abilities and potential, and outright tells Xander that if he is an apple from his tree, he's undoubtedly a rotten one.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: His default stats are much more flexible then his fathers are, making him very flexible when it comes to mothers as long as his mother is not a magical unit. Mothers like Charlotte make him a Glass Cannon, while mothers like Severa or Hinoka tends to bump him into Lightning Bruiser territory.
  • Large and in Charge: Siegbert may not be king yet, but the Heirs of Fate DLC has a CG showing him next to Xander and it's seen that he's able to stand eye-to-eye with him. Xander is already among the tallest men in the game, so a fully grown Siegbert will probably be even bigger.
  • Love Confession:
    I'm still full of shortcomings, but someday, I promise I'll be a man who deserves your company. I can do anything if it's for you, my love.
  • Meaningful Name: His name roughly means "bright victory" in German, a possible reference to being Xander's heir after the war. It can also be interpreted that his name is based on his father's sword, Siegfried.
  • Nice Guy: Much like his father, he's a calm, kind, and honest young man.
  • Noble Male, Roguish Male: The Noble to Shiro's Roguish.
  • Oblivious to Love: In his S Support with Kana, he doesn't seem to realize she's basically confessing her love for him, and mistakes her metaphor for their relationship as a game she's playing.
    Kana: I did. But now I have a different math problem for you, Siegbert. What's me plus you?
    Siegbert: Er, what?
    Kana: Me plus you. Tell me the first answer that pops into your mind!
    Siegbert: Uh...math friends forever!
    Kana: Close enough. I accept, Siegbert. I will be your Princess of Math. And you will be my...?
    Siegbert: Prince of Math? Ha, sure! This is a fun game, Kana. I think we can play this for a long time!
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "...Now!"
    "No holding back!"
    "Be ready!"
    "Out of my sight!"
  • Princely Young Man: Very much the Nice Guy type.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Shiro's red in their supports.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Just like his dad.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, he is able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • His personality overall is very similar to his father's, although with a bigger emphasis on Nice Guy as he is less stern than Xander.
    • If his mother is Selena, they both share an insecurity towards a parent who in their mind is the epitome of perfection. For him it's Xander, for Selena it's Cordelia. The main difference is that Selena's insecurity towards her mother is what strives her to be different but still the best while Siegbert wants to be as similar to his father as he can.
    • If Nyx is his mother, he'll share her studious nature and love of reading. He'll also share these traits with his uncle, Leo.
    • If Sakura is his mother, he shares her soft, gentle voice, her modesty to the point of Self-Deprecation and insecurities.
    • The Children's Festival DLC has a Siegbert mothered by Effie inheriting his mother's Big Eater tendencies.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Get him with blond hair like in his official artwork, and he's basically a teenage version of his dad in both looks and personality.
  • Take Up My Sword: In the Heirs of Fate DLC, he ends up wielding his father's Siegfried.
  • Teens Are Short: Completely averted. As said above, Heirs of Fate DLC includes a CG where Siegbert is standing next to Xander and it shows that he's nearly as tall as his father, who is one of the two tallest men in the game.
  • Warrior Prince: Like his father and uncle(s).
  • Weapon of Choice: The Dark Greatsword, but only in Heroes. In Heirs of Fate, he gets to use his father's Siegfried.
  • The Wise Prince: Said to be refined, kind and wise.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Many of his supports have him being told this. Siegbert is very critical of himself, and he constantly downplays all of his skills and positive traits in comparison to others, especially his father Xander. Considering who his father is, and the responsibilities of being a king in general, he understandably, if to an unhealthy extent, has his doubts about being a worthy successor and ruler. Yet when he confides his doubts and fears in others they mention that while he does have quite a bit more to learn before he's ready he's still just a kid, and that he still has a lot more to experience and learn. Even then they often mention that he already has many of the necessary qualities that will help him lead a country; like fighting skills, empathy towards his subjects, an ability to easily understand others, and a true desire to help everyone around him.

    Forrest (Foleo) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_71.png
"Excuse me? Since when is saving lives considered a disgrace?"

The son of Leo. He loves fashion and is noted to be very talented at making clothes. However, his decision to become a healer over a warrior combined with his tendency to wear women's clothing has led to clashes with his father. Is the most sympathetic towards others. His birthday is March 13th.

Class: Troubadour (default), Strategist (Heirs of Fate DLC)
Voiced by: Yuuta Takahashi (Japanese), Max Mittelman (English)

  • Action Fashionista: Especially if promoted, and therefore able to attack as well as healing. His solo ending mentions that after the war he became famous for his fashion designs.
  • Afraid of Blood: As mentioned above, Forrest has hemophobia.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr females, as well as second generation Hoshido characters Selkie and Rhajat in Revelation.
  • Call-Back: Forrest's character design is similar to Maribelle from Fire Emblem Awakening in terms of hairstyle, color scheme, and class. Furthermore, both characters are also of noble birth.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: In his Paralogue, he's not afraid to snap back at Leo for talking down to him because of his appearance, even going so far as to say his father is not worthy of him.
  • Camp Straight: Though Forrest has some extremely camp manerisms, his support conversations with the Avatar establish that he's straight; he just loves cute things and feels more comfortable in women's clothing.
  • Covert Pervert: Despite his demeanor, he tells the Female Avatar that she looks best when she's wearing nothing in his skinship should they be married.
  • Distressed Dude: In his paralogue, after he runs off in a huff thanks to Leo snapping at him for his crossdressing habit. Though it comes off as more Distressed Damsel thanks to the bandits mistaking him for a girl.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: His massive Ojou Ringlets and effeminate style of dress cause a group of bandits (and Elise) to mistake him for a woman.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: At least in Nina's mind... and she's not the only, as his A Support with Shigure reveals. Forrest and Shigure attempt to pull a prank by having Shigure paint a picture of Forrest in antique gowns, so that they can pass it off as an old painting, only for most everyone who sees the painting immediately identify Forrest, apparently remarking to Shigure that "There is only one beauty in this entire army, and his name is Forrest."
  • Expy: Yet another Lucius. he also has more than a passing resemblance to Maribelle.
  • Famous Last Words:
    “I wanted... a beautiful end...at least...but...I... can't...see...anyth...”
    Heirs of Fate Forrest: "Ugh... these bloodstains won't wash out... but I must fight on... Brynhildr, please give me strength... to stand up... once more..."
  • The Fashionista: Has a keen sense of fashion and is very skilled at making clothes.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blond hair in his default portrait and happens to be a good guy.
  • Hostage Situation: He gets captured and held for ransom by Gazzak's men in his Paralogue. And they will try to execute him when the fighting breaks out, turning said level into a race against time (or wealth if someone uses Freeze).
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: He's a skilled tailor and very fashionable.
  • Legacy of Service: In Heirs of Fate, Ophelia and Nina serve as Forrest's retainers, mimicking their parents' trio of Odin and Niles serving Leo. With mostly the same group dynamics. On the surface they also look like a collective Distaff Counterpart to their fathers, except for Forrest's actual gender.
  • Love Confession:
    I love you for you who are. As I know you love me. What a lovely pair we make. May love always triumph over ignorance.
  • Meaningful Name: References his position as the next wielder of Brynhildr in both languages. His dub name is probably a reference to the trees Brynhildr summons; his Japanese name, Foleo, could be a play on "folio" and "foliage" as well as Leo's name.
  • Nice Guy: He's quite a sweet boy.
  • Nice Hat: A cute pink beret.
  • Ojou Ringlets: He has these despite being a guy, though his hairstyle still fits with his royal background.
  • Palette Swap: The frilly pink Troubadour outfit he's pictured wearing, and he keeps it if he's promoted to Strategist.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "Can't run, can't hide!"
    "I'm stunning. You're dead!"
    "I'm done with this!"
    "I doubt you're ready for me!"
  • Recurring Element: Is yet another character with highly feminine features who is a healer and also happens to be a guy, just like Lucius and Libra. Though Forrest is easily the most feminine looking out of them. Funnily enough, unlike Libra, Forrest averts Crossdressing Voices in both languages.
  • Reluctant Warrior: He isn't super fond of battle, but goes into the battlefield anyway. His Paralogue has him healing people that have been wounded in a skirmish in the Deeprealms.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Not only he's introduced healing people after a skirmish, but his solo and paired endings state that he both worked for the well-being of Nohr and became a well-respected designer.
  • Royalty Superpower: As a descendant of the First Dragons, he is able to use Dragon Veins.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • The Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC shows that, if he's mothered by Selena, he's as much of a Sore Loser as she is. He'll also have inherited her eye for fashion.
    • It's also possible that he got his talent and interest in sewing from his aunt, Camilla, who is also a skilled seamstress.
  • Shout-Out: In his B support with Kiragi, Forrest is attacked by "a horde of insane, bloodthirsty chickens" who seemingly came out of nowhere. Kiragi is quick to point out however, that this likely happened because Forrest smacked one of the chickens around a few times first.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Forrest is gentle and softspoken, but can be very strongwilled when needed. i.e, in the second Heirs of Fate DLC, he keeps his cool even when he and his companions are being attacked and Male Kana is so nervous that he goes into his Dragon Form. He even goes as far as briefly using Brynhildr to snap Male Kana out of it, before giving him and their companions a Kirk Summation.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Downplayed. Forrest has his father's feminine face, especially his long eyelashes, but the similarities stop there. He does look a lot like his aunt Elise.
  • Take Up My Sword: His support line with Leo centers around him one day inheriting Leo's legendary weapon, the Brynhildr tome, though Forrest has misgivings as to whether he can handle or is worthy of such power. In the Heirs of Fate DLC, this very thing comes to pass to the point that he manages to fully activate Brynhildr's power.
  • Teens Are Short: Forrest is one of the shortest characters in the game, and when compared to other male characters in the Accessory Shop, he looks downright tiny. Even Male Kana is taller than him!
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal:
    • In the Japanese version, Soleil adamantly believes Forrest to be a girl... until every one of their friends tell her otherwise. She goes into shock until Forrest proves he's just as cute as ever.
    • It happens again in the Heirs of Fate DLC, when he meets up with Sophie and/or Dwyer.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Fitting, given his gender, but Forrest looks like a girl, dresses like a girl and has some fairly camp mannerisms but his voice in the English version is surprisingly deep.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He just wants Leo to be proud of him, even though he's afraid of fighting and has a habit Leo's criticized him for. Thankfully, Leo does realize this and works harder to become a loving father.
  • White Mage: A mounted one. Can become a Combat Medic (as a Butler) or a mounted Red Mage (as a Strategist).
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Loves to make and wear cute, frilly dresses. He explains to Leo that he's liked girly clothes ever since childhood, as he once got dolled up by his caretaker and Leo was charmed by the sight.

    Ignatius (Ignis) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_76.png
"Oh no! What will you do? I mean, what can I do?"

The son of Benny. Though he looks unsociable at a glance, he is a timid person like his father. He is fond of cute things, but hates ghosts and bugs. Chatters the most. His birthday is August 16th.

Class: Knight, General (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Akinori Eguchi (Japanese), Kaiji Tang (English)

  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr females (except Soleil in the Western versions), as well as second generation Hoshido characters Selkie and Caeldori in Revelation.
  • Cowardly Lion: While he looks tough, he lacks confidence and gets intimidated easily. He's also shown to be terrified of bugs and ghosts.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Downplayed; he's a tad lighter than Benny and can be given a variety of hair colors via his mother, but Ignatius is still slightly darker-skinned than most of the other characters, and he has blond hair in his default portrait.
  • Expy: Of Yarne from Awakening, both being intimidating looking but faint-hearted young men who become powerhouses when their friends are threatened.
  • Face of a Thug: Inherited this characteristic from his father. His case differs slightly in that while his father Benny inspires utter terror in people, Ignatius is simply thought of as stern or always in a bad mood.
  • Famous Last Words
    "...How odd. It's dark... but I'm not... the least bit scared..."
    Heirs of Fate Ignatius: "I wish I could keep protecting you all... but I'm through... Please... use my body as a shield... and keep going..."
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: His self-esteem is very low. Even when Percy asks for his autograph because he admires his willingness to fight in the frontlines, Ignatius simply tells him that he shouldn't want to be like him.
  • Humble Hero: Has a habit toward this. When his friends praise him for his bravery protecting others on the front line, he deflects the compliments and instead points out their own achievements because he doesn't like to be the center of attention.
  • I'm Not a Hero, I'm...: "...a coward."
  • Like Father, Like Son: He's a socially-inept Gentle Giant just like his father, although Ignatius is noticeably more verbose and expressive than Benny is.
  • Love Confession:
    I used to be afraid of commitment. And then I met you.
  • No Brows: Something he inherited from his father.
  • No Social Skills: He has no idea of how to approach and talk to people.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "Don't come any closer!"
    "I don't wanna die!"
    "I will not live in fear."
    "Leave my friends alone!"
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His supports with Forrest center around his appreciation for Forrest's cutesy aesthetic, which he wishes he could emulate. Forrest is eager to tailor some cute outfits just for him, but Ignatius is shy and self-conscious about wearing the flowery designs Forrest comes up with in public. They end up as casual pajamas to wear while the two hang out.
    • In his supports with Asugi, Ignatius keeps watching over him whenever he bakes, which starts to creep Asugi out. He later admits it's because he likes the cute animal designs of the cookies Asugi bakes, but was afraid he'd tease him if he told the truth. Asugi admits he also likes cute things and tells Ignatius that there's nothing wrong with that.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: He has a lot of issues dealing with others.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: He's not quite a Pretty Boy, having inherited Benny's No Brows and stern face, but his more flattering hairstyle and somewhat softer features make him handsome in a rugged way.
  • Unmanly Secret: His afore-mentioned love of cute things.
  • When He Smiles: Some of the girls note that when he does genuinely smile he can be quite good looking. Nina in particular comments that between his smile and hidden submissive, timid nature he could even be "fantasy material" after all.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: While he frightens easily in general, Ignatius is especially scared of ghosts and bugs (and spiders even more so, judging by his supports with his mother).

"How about I lend a hand? Or a paw?"

The daughter of Keaton. She loves everything about her father. Her emotions fluctuate a little, and she has a bit of a wicked tongue. Has the dirtiest room. Her birthday is October 11th.

Class: Wolfskin, Wolfssegner (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Miho Arakawa (Japanese), Angela Marie Volpe (English)

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In one of her private quarters lines, she gets distracted by a random object:
    Velouria: This room is amazing! There's treasure everywhere! Like that scrap of paper! Can I have it? Please?!
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr males, as well as second generation Hoshido characters Hisame and Kiragi in Revelation.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: In her B-rank support with Dwyer, she gives him one of her valuable treasures because he decided to share cookies with her.
  • Birds of a Feather: In her A-support with Dwyer, it's revealed that one of the reasons he felt a connection with her was to both of them being lazy.
  • Boobs of Steel: She's fairly well endowed and, being a Wolfskin, has a great strength stat.
  • Brutal Honesty: Velouria doesn't care much for others' opinions of her, and as such doesn't mince her words to please them.
  • Collector of the Strange: Just like her father, she tends to collect random objects, including hairballs and acorns. Though while Keaton's tastes lean largely toward the grotesque, Velouria's are much more varied.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In her S-rank Support with the male Avatar, he gives her a wedding ring in a box. She's far too concerned with the box itself to realize the implications of the gift.
    Velouria: What an adorable little box you are. Yes you are! The perfect size for storing an acorn. [...] Inside it? OK. But this box is pretty great. I don't know how you're going to beat it. Oh! My goodness! [...] It's stunning! And so soft. I could spend all day just feeling it. Yes, the fabric they used to line this box is just too silky. You were right, Avatar, the real gift WAS inside! [...] Oh, yes, the ring? We can talk about that later. But for now, I just want to enjoy this! Ohohoho! Eheehee!
  • Cuddle Bug: In her supports with her mother, she hugs her quite a lot.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Though not as obvious as Selkie, she's still a pretty cute wolf girl.
  • Daddy's Girl: As said above she's also very close to her mother.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Her C support with Female Kana shows this.
    Kana: Wait. Are you calling me a child? I am NOT a child! Take that back!
    Velouria: Oh, I see. You're not. Thanks for setting the record straight. Good-bye, Kana.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Most of her supports has her start out cold and rude. But she eventually warms up to her friends.
  • Drama Queen: In her supports with Keaton, after he imposes an imaginary restraining order to get her to stop being so clingy, Velouria compares the punishment to death.
  • Emotionless Girl: Her supports with Nina indicate this.
  • Expy: Of Nah from Awakening. Both act rather childish and are blunt with their words at times, but have a mature side to them as well. Their clothes even seem to share a similar style.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "...Farewell..."
    Heirs of Fate Velouria: "Sorry, daddy... I couldn't save you... I can't even remember... your smell..."
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Nearly all of her potential mothers are human. The lone exception, a Female Avatar, is half dragon.
  • Healing Factor: She'll learn Better Odds as a Wolfssegner, which heals a portion of her HP every odd-numbered turn.
  • Hidden Buxom: While a bit hard to see since she keeps her arms crossed in her portraits, she's decently stacked if reclassed to a Stripperiffic class.
  • Hidden Depths: Though she can seem childish and cold at first, some of her later supports show a cogent, mature side to her that many of the other children lack.
    • In her support chain with Siegbert, he tries desperately to guess her taste in "treasure" in an effort to learn more about the Wolfkin, and fails miserably. When he laments that there's no way he can be a good king if he has this much trouble understanding his subjects, she responds thusly:
      Velouria: That's not true. I think you will make a truly great king [...] You tried earnestly - even desperately - to understand me. I think that is the chief mark of a good king: He listens to his subjects. It isn't always possible to understand them, but the desire is what's important.
    • In her A-rank support with with Forrest, they come to appreciate the way they both buck social norms, and come out stronger as a result.
      Forrest: [I like you because of] The depth of your commitment, for one. You firmly believe things that most people don't value are, in fact, treasures. You live by your own set of values, and I think that's wonderful.
      Velouria: [...] Thanks Forrest, but aren't you just like me? [...] You wear whatever you want, no shame, no matter what anyone says. That's "living by your own set of values" too, right?
    • In her support chain with Ignatius, she explains that the reason she likes collecting junk instead of new things is that new things have no scent, and therefore no sense of history or soul to them. For this reason, she is initially upset that he would give her a brand new charm instead of one that might actually serve to remind her of him, but then decides:
      Velouria: Well, I will treasure and fondle it, eventually giving it a new personality.
  • Interspecies Romance: She's already the product of one, so any romance she falls into is this by default.
  • Kryptonite Is Everywhere: With the correct combination of parents and classes, it is entirely possible for her to be weak to 3 things at the same time where characters usually have 2 at most. This can affect her primarily tanky build.
  • Lethal Chef: Like her father, she has the "Revolting" cooking modifier.
  • Little Bit Beastly: She has wolf ears.
  • Little Red Fighting Hood: Subverted, she has the perfect looks... but is a werewolf herself.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Aside from their wolfskin instincts and tastes, she and her father Keaton have little in common behavior-wise with each other, which Keaton seems to notice. To demonstrate, this exchange she has with Siegbert demonstrates the kind of self-deprecation, aloofness and suddenly refined speech that the proud, sociable closet country mouse Keaton isn't quite capable of:
    Velouria: It's fine. We wolfskin simple have different tastes. You humans would never understand. Not that you need to try to understand ones so low as we. You have more pressing concerns, I trust.
    Siegbert: That's not true! I want to understand all of my citizens as well as I can! No matter who they are—rich or poor, human or wolfskin.
    Velouria: A lofty goal. But more cheaply spoken than done.
  • Love Confession:
    "I knew you were special when I saw how much Daddy respects you. Let's take it easy together for the rest of our lives."
  • Meaningful Name: Velour is a fabric, just like Keaton's Japanese name, Flannel.
  • Mood-Swinger: Her emotions tend to fluctuate.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: If her mother is the Avatar, she's capable of being both a Wolfskin and a Dragon via reclass options, though not at the same time.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Sees no issue with getting super close to people in order to sniff them.
  • Not So Similar: Invokes this with Selkie in their supports, more specifically, she asks her to "not lump foxes with wolves" and that their ability to transform is the the only similarity they share.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: A Wolfskin like her father.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: In her supports with her mother, Velouria asks her constantly for hugs and to allow her to smell her scent. It turns out to be related to this trope, since she missed her mom terribly in the Pocket Dimension and doesn't want to lose her.
    "Mama... Please don't go away. I want to be able to smell your scent forever..."
    • Also says this to Dwyer in their S-rank Support:
      Velouria: Your people complicate everything. Here, just stand by my side.
      Dwyer: All right. Done.
      Velouria: Yes. And now don't ever leave it. See? Easy.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "This makes me hungry!"
    "I always play with my food."
    "Delicious."
    "A hunting I will go."
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The "Blue" to Selkie's "Red".
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Let's see, she has greyish-white hair (albeit not short), brownish red eyes (sometimes depicted as red in some official artwork), is usually seen as emotionless, acts quite odd at times, is cold to others at first and then warms up to them, and holds a strong attachment towards her father.
  • Running Gag: Like Panne, Yarne, and Flannel/Keaton, Velour is a type of clothing fabric.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Velouria inherited her father's love for collecting things.
    • If mothered by Selena, the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC shows that she's as much of a shopper as her mom. After chiding her for doing exactly the same thing.
    • If Camilla is her mother, the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds implies that she shares Camilla's "affectionate Blood Knight" traits, even if not necessarily as much as her mother.
  • ShipTease: Interestingly, her A support with Dwyer has subtext of this.
    Velouria: None of that was work. It was enjoying what life brought me. Like you.
    Dwyer: Oh? Like me? I see.
    Dwyer: Erm...
  • Skunk Stripe: A stripe of her hair is always a different color than the rest, and said color will depend on which girl Keaton married. In her default portrait, it happens to be black.
  • Stealth Pun: She wears a red hood, and turns into a big, bad wolf. Remind you of anything?
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: While she only shows her soft side towards her parents, she usually acts very cold and distant towards everyone in her supports, but she starts to soften up eventually.
  • Super Senses: She's got them from her dad's side....and uses them to constantly track him down much to his annoyance.
  • To Serve Man: If her Pre-Mortem One-Liners are to be taken at face value, she shares her father's (and all Wolfskins) habit of eating humans.

    Percy (Lutz) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feif_icon_75.png
"Back, evildoer! Return to whatever dark hole of naughtiness you crawled out of!"

The son of Arthur. He is obedient and naïve. Though his father is perpetually unlucky, Percy has astronomical good luck. His wyvern's name is Ace (Michalis in the Japanese version). Spots the most shooting stars. His birthday is September 5th.

Class: Wyvern Rider, Wyvern Lord (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Tomo Muranaka (Japanese), Antony Del Rio (English)

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: All of his named attacks have this.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: He's one of the youngest of the children (only Kana is confirmed to be younger than him), but still adamantly believes he's a soldier of justice like his father. His supports with his mother have him almost getting hurt in his desire to impress her and make her proud.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Played for Laughs. Angry at his father Arthur for neglecting him, he declares him to be his "archnemesis" and joins a group of mercenaries fighting him.
  • Badass Adorable: Percy is small and really cute, and he is capable of being one of the most powerful units you can have.
  • Bash Brothers: Taken both figuratively and literally with units that are not only male, but also if his brother is male Kana or Shigure.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Female Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr females (except Soleil in the Western versions), as well as second generation Hoshido characters Mitama and Rhajat in Revelation.
  • Birds of a Feather: Bonds with Sophie over their shared fondness of their mounts in their support line, though he kicks it off wanting to compete to see whose is the best.
  • Born Lucky: Unlike his father, Percy is incredibly lucky. Things will just go right for him due to bizarre coincidences when he tries to accomplish something, and there are a couple of instances of him just stumbling across some treasure lying around. However, unlike how his father is forced to endure and brave on through his misfortune (which Percy greatly admires), Percy really dislikes his luck as it takes away the chance for him to put up honest hard work into his goals.
  • Buffy Speak: In his C-Rank chat with female Kana, he tells Kana that if they train together, they'll get stronger. Then he'll be a hero of justice that's even more "heroey" and "justicier."
  • Call-Back: His supports with Soleil, in which the latter tries to help him find a bride for Ace, are pretty much a gender-flipped version of Cherche enlisting the Avatar's help with trying to find a mate for Minerva in her supports.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: In his paralogue, Percy is mad at Arthur for not visiting him often enough, even throwing an "I hate you, dad!" at him. He comes around at the end, though.
    Arthur: (disgusted grimace) Ugh..."archenemy"? What's gotten into that kid?
  • Calling Your Attacks: Justice Attack in Japanese, Bombastic Beatdown Blow and Super Sidekick Slam in English.
  • Cool Mask: Wears a blue and red Luchador-esque mask.
  • Cry Cute: At the end of his paralogue, he breaks down in tears after Arthur apologizes for his negligence and asks him to leave his Deeprealm and join him, which is what Percy always wanted.
  • Custom Uniform: Along with his mask and his father's color palette, he wears very childish-looking shorts that reach his knees instead of baggy pants, and lacks the scarf generic Wyvern Riders wear.
  • Daddy's Boy: Arthur is quite the Doting Parent towards him. i.e, Ace was a gift from Arthur himself, and he apparently went to big lengths to get him.
  • Dragon Rider: His starting class.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Bye Ace..."
    Heirs of Fate Percy: "I must've been luckier... than all the other "me's"... to make it here... But if I was really lucky... I'd get to stay with you all... just a little while more... "
  • Foil: Serves as one to Kana. Both have something related to a dragon but Percy is the son of a commoner who rides on one that Arthur gave to him for company while Kana is a royal that IS a dragon. Their paralogue settings are different too, with Kana being in a tense and dire situation and is happy to see his mama/her papa, while Percy's temporary vow of antagonism towards Arthur is Played for Laughs. Strangely, Female Kana's ability to turn into a dragon is never brought up in her support with Percy.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Even though Percy has very good luck in contrast to Arthur, he still has a negative Luck modifier, which is inherited from his father. The only way for Percy to have a positive Luck modifier is to have Arthur marry a female Avatar whose asset is Luck.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blond hair in his default portrait and happens to be a good guy.
  • Love Confession:
    Oh, gosh, I really am lucky! I get to marry you AND ride a dragon every day! Can Ace sleep in our room?
  • Masked Luchador: Dresses like one.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • He appears to be named after Perceval, one of King Authur's Knights of the Round Table, or Perseus, a hero from Greek Mythology
    • Lutz is a short form for Ludwig, meaning "famous war".
  • Mythology Gag: In Japan his Wyvern is named Michalis, after an antagonistic Dragon Rider from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light.
  • Nice Guy: Like his father, Percy is a very open and a friendly kid at heart. Though he briefly was a jerk to his dad in the paralogue you recruit Percy.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "I'm feeling lucky!"
    "Bombastic Beatdown Blow!"
    "Super Sidekick Slam!"
    "No more kid gloves!"
  • Pointless Band-Aid: On his nose.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Percy inherits his father's heroic spirit and strong sense of justice.
    • If his mother is Elise, their personalities will be very similar, as both are kindhearted, optimistic, and very cheerful.
  • Supreme Chef: He is a top level cook in the My Castle restaurant, making food on par with notably great chefs like Peri or Jakob. His supports with Dwyer involve him learning to make coffee.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Percy is considered to be one of the youngest of the second generation children, around Kana and Midori's age.

Click here to see Ophelia in Fire Emblem Heroes 
"The chosen heroine arrives! And what is she called, this maiden of darkness? Ophelia Dusk is her name!"

The daughter of Odin. She follows her father's "chosen one" act since she desires to be be just like him, but she also takes it much more seriously and tends to be rude to people who don't indulge her mannerisms. She makes use of stars and stones to perform curious incantations. She is the one most skilled at skipping. Her birthday is September 15th.

Class: Dark Mage, Sorcerer (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Yuuki Kuwahara (Japanese), Angela Marie Volpe (English)

  • Absolute Cleavage: She certainly has the chest to show off her Dark Mage's outfit.
  • Alliterative Family: Possible in Revelation. Odin can marry Orochi and they produce Ophelia. As a bonus, the "O" in all of their names takes up a syllable by themselves. As an added bonus Ophelia can mean serpentine, setting up a Family Theme Naming with Orochi.
  • Badass Cape: Wears a cape as part of the Dark Mage attire.
  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr males, as well as second generation Hoshido characters Shiro and Hisame in Revelation.
  • Birthmark of Destiny: According to her A support conversation with Odin/Owain, she inherits the Mark of Naga, which appears on one of her arms. This is further confirmed if she talks to Lissa in the "Before Awakening" DLC, where she briefly brings it up, but a feeling tells her not to show it at the last second.
  • Bodyguard Babes: In the Heirs of Fates DLC, she and Nina are both Forrest's retainers.
  • Bodyguard Crush: She considers herself sworn to Forrest's service just as her father is sworn to Leo, and she can be... excessively fierce in her attempts to protect the prince, to the point of nearly attacking street merchants whose perfume caused Forrest to cough. If they reach an S Support, Forrest proclaims his love for her and she reciprocates.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Just like her father, she's very skilled at fighting... and very eccentric.
  • Call-Back: In her B support with Soleil, she uses the same body-switching curse that Henry uses in his A and S supports with Sumia. Like her father, she also has a personal weapon, Missiletainnnote .
  • Child of Two Worlds: Ophelia can almost literally be this if Odin (Owain) marries anyone other than Selena (Severa), which would make her half-Ylissean and half-Hoshidan, Nohrian, or Vallite. In addition to that if her mother is Elise, Azura, Camilla, or a Female Avatar, then she'll also be royalty of Ylisse and Nohr or Valla.
  • Continuity Nod: Her standing posture in her portrait is exactly the same as her grandma Lissa's, complete with making the same winking expression.
  • Cute Bookworm: Cute, a bit quirky, and very into tomes (her Paralogue even starts because some bandits attack the town she was trying to find a tome in). Her personal skill, Bibliophile, reinforces this.
    Bibliophile: Grants Crit+10 when this unit is carrying three or more tomes/scrolls.
  • Developers' Foresight: In the "Before Awakening" DLC, just as Odin can talk to Lissa, so too can Ophelia talk to her grandmother, although she never realizes Lissa is her grandmother.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Dad... I'm sorry... I couldn't become... a chosen hero..."
    Heirs of Fate Ophelia: "The stars... how lovely they are... and lonely. I'll see them up close now... as I travel beyond the firmament"
  • Gainaxing: In the My Room feature, especially in her ending animation.
  • Generation Xerox:
    • The dialogue at the end of her Paralogue between her and Odin, as well as her supports with her father reveal that she inherited his flair for the dramatic.
    • Also with Lissa if you count the Continuity Nod above.
    • Ophelia's support with a Male Avatar follows her attempts to get him to come up with a name for her new gemstone, just like how Owain tried to get the Female Avatar to name his new sword in Awakening.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: In an attempt to stop Soleil from hitting on her, Ophelia creates a body switching curse, intent on making Soleil swear not to chase her as the condition for reversing the curse. Unfortunately, Soleil is perfectly fine with this, as it lets her "admire" Ophelia's body much more easily.
  • Identical Granddaughter: If she manages to have blonde hair, Ophelia is a near dead-ringer for her grandmother, Lissa.
  • Idiot Hair: She has a very noticeable strand of hair coming out from the top of her head.
  • Large Ham: Just like her father, she speaks in a very theatrical manner, using fancy and complicated-sounding words.
  • Legacy of Service: In Heirs of Fate, Ophelia and Nina serve as Forrest's retainers, mimicking their parents' trio of Odin and Niles serving Leo. With mostly the same group dynamics.
  • Love Confession:
    Fate has chosen us. The moon and the stars bless our union. The constellations celebrate our love. You and I, forever into eternity.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She wears the very stripperiffic Dark Mage outfit. Lampshaded by Soleil in their B support.
    Soleil (in Ophelia's body): "H, hehehe… I've… become Ophelia… ahh… cute… this body really is so cute…"
  • Palette Swap: A yellow Dark Mage outfit, just like her father and grandmother.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner
    "Luminary Uppercut!"
    "Take this maiden seriously!"
    "Unleashing my best!"
    "Witness my true power!"
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Just like Odin, she's very theatrical and wants to be a chosen hero like him.
    • Her pose and facial expressions, especially the winking, are also the same as her grandmother, Lissa. She also gets her skipping habit from her.
    • If you pair Lissa with Henry in Awakening, the ending specifically notes that Owain got his personality from his father, while it goes uncommented upon otherwise. Remember who else uses a body-switching curse?
    • If her mother is Kagero, Ophelia's support with Forrest show she's just as protective of him as Kagero is of Ryoma.
    • If her mother is Orochi, she gets her interest in fortune telling (though not necessarily the talent).
    • If her mother is Felicia, she will prove to be just as clumsy and inept at household tasks as her mother in her supports with her.
  • Sensual Spandex: As part of the Dark Mage outfit, just like her father.
  • Stripperiffic: Like her father, she wears the very revealing Dark Mage outfit.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks a lot like her grandma Lissa. This is even more so if her mother is Effie, Elise, Charlotte or a blonde Avatar.
  • Underwear of Power: Besides the spandex and cape, she wears the Dark Mage attire, which consists of only panties, a short cape, and a bra.

    Soleil

Click here to see Soleil in Fire Emblem Heroes 
"Come on! Turn that frown upside down. Know what you have then? A smile!"

The daughter of Laslow. She has a cheerful and energetic personality. Though she is not too shy, she can get anxious about her surroundings and is quite infatuated with the same sex. She is the worst singer in the army. Her birthday is August 31st.

Class: Mercenary, Hero (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Eri Suzuki (Japanese), Amber Hood (English, Fates), Michelle Ruff (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Heavily implied. In Soleil's B Support with Ophelia, the latter uses a body-switching spell to get the former to stop chasing her. Soleil then says she's going to look at herself (in Ophelia's body) in a mirror, in a private place.
  • Apologetic Attacker: One of her Critical Hit quotes in the Japanese version is a rather high-pitched, cheerful "I'm sooooooorry!". Something she seemed to take from her grandmother, Olivia, another Apologetic Attacker, who even yelled "I'm sorry!" in one of her critical quotes in the Japanese version.
  • Badass Bisexual: Bisexual and the leader of a mercenary band in her Paralogue. She's even more so if given a mother capable of drawing out her potential, like Peri or Charlotte. However, she still can't S Support with any women.
  • Battle Couple: Can be this with the Male Avatar and Forrest.
    • In the Japanese version, she could also marry all of the second generation Nohr boys, as well as Kiragi and Asugi in Revelation.
  • Bi the Way: She has a strong preference towards women, outright saying that she prefers them as romantic partners in her supports with Forrest. However, she's not opposed to guys, and can end up marrying a male Avatar or Forrest.
  • Blackmail Backfire: In an attempt to stop Soleil from hitting on her, Ophelia creates a body switching curse, intent on making Soleil swear not to chase her as the condition for reversing the curse. Soleil's response:
    Soleil: Now I don't need to chase you - I AM you! I've gotta go find a private place with a mirror! Heeheeheehee!
  • Bodyguard Babes: As she puts it to Siegbert in their C-Support, since Laslow was Xander's retainer, that makes her his retainer by default.
  • Boobs of Steel: While hers aren't as obvious as Ophelia's, she has the highest Strength growth of the Second Generation, even beating Shiro.
  • But Not Too Bi: While she has a sexual interest in cute women, she cannot S Support with any of the other female units and can only marry males. In the English version, this is toned down; most of her S Supports now have her letting the other party down gently, with only the Male Avatar and Forrest being marriage partners.
  • Child of Two Worlds: Soleil can almost literally be this if Laslow (Inigo) marries anyone other than Selena (Severa), which would make her half-Feroxi (quarter-Feroxi and quarter-Ylissean or quarter-Plegian depending on who's his father) and half-Hoshidan, Nohrian, or Vallite. In addition to that if her mother is Elise, Azura, Camilla, or a Female Avatar, then she also can be royalty of Ylisse and Nohr or Valla, provided that Inigo is Chrom's son.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Never, EVER ask her to sing. She's horrible at it.
  • Cuteness Proximity: She adores everything cute. Some of her Private Quarters lines show that she has a collection of kitten posters, for example.
    Soleil: You know what this place needs? Kitten posters! I have a few dozen to spare, if you want them.
  • Dreadful Musician: The worst singer in the army.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: Most women in the army get upset or confused when a male Avatar walks into the hot springs while they're bathing. Soleil? Not so much...
    Soleil: Heyyy, nice abs, Lord Avatar!
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Subverted. She's gotten plenty of successful dates with girls who are actually into girls, but has no success with straight girls. Unfortunately, she seems to have difficulty taking "no" for an answer or respecting personal space in these cases, resulting in chasing Ophelia (and in the original Japanese, Forrest) halfway across camp very much against their wishes, as well as stalking and spying on girls who are total strangers in her supports with Ignatius and Nina.
  • Famous Last Words:
    "Ahaha...how lame...say... are these tears...? Even though... I wanted to smile...to the end..."
    Heirs of Fate Soleil: "Ahahah... I can't go on... Sorry, everyone. Put on a brave face... for me..."
  • Gainaxing: In the My Room feature, most noticeable when she asks the Avatar if she can take her clothes off.
  • Genki Girl: With elements of the Plucky Girl. She gets a little nervous at times, but is mostly cheery and always remains optimistic.
  • Gender Flip: If she somehow manages to get the same hair color as her father, she's essentially this to Laslow.
  • Generation Xerox: Soleil acts near-exactly like her father, Laslow, right down to constantly flirting with girls.
  • Hair Decorations: A white and golden hairband. Which seems to be the original one worn by her grandmother Olivia, even!
  • Hidden Buxom: According to her Japanese My Room lines and her conversation with Camilla in the Hoshidan Scramble DLC.
  • I Can't Dance: She aspires to be a skilled dancer just like her father (and grandmother, Olivia) but she considers himself to have terrible rhythm and no skill at it.
  • Incest Subtext: Soleil's support with her mother has Soleil practically drooling over how cute she finds her mother. Well... the "subtext" mostly comes giving her the benefit of the doubt that she wouldn't go all the way with it.
    • However, if her mother is Camilla, as revealed in their conversation of the Hoshidan Scramble DLC, she doesn't feel comfortable flirting with her mother.
    Camilla: Look at me. Won't you try to woo me?
    Soleil: Why does this feel so difficult? It's like I've lost all my drive!
  • If It's You, It's Okay: While she prefers women, her supports with Forrest has her state she desires to be in a romantic relationship with him.
  • Irony:
    • Soleil's grandmother, Olivia, was a very talented singer and dancer, whereas she can't hold a note at all and has two left feet. Made extra ironic if her mother happens to be Azura, who's a songstress.
    • Soleil has a sun-themed name and one of her possible mothers, Selena, has a moon-themed name.
  • Ironic Hell: Soleil is usually praising her mother in their support conversation. However, at the end of her conversation with Camilla if she's Soleil's mother in the Hoshidan Scramble DLC, we get this:
    Camilla: I'll look properly later so won't you praise your mum a lot now? I'll let you sleep on my lap later too.
    Soleil: Aaah! Save me dad!
  • Love Confession:
    I love you more than all the cute things in the world combined! This is kind of embarrassing, but...stay with me forever? Promise?
  • Meaningful Name: Soleil is French for "sun", and she's generally sunny and bright in personality.
  • "Oh, Crap!" Smile: She tends to grin a bit unnaturally when she's stressed or in a tight spot. This applies to when she's in a disadvantageous position in combat too.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Because of her father's life philosophy, Soleil is usually seen with a smile on her face. She's even smiling when she's on the receiving end of an unfavorable attack.
  • Picky Eater: She says she was this in the past, until Laslow convinced her otherwise. She especially disliked vegetables.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: If she reaches an S Support with anyone aside from Forrest or the Avatar, she and the other will be this. This is averted in the Japanese version, where all of her S Supports have a Relationship Upgrade.
  • The Pollyanna: It doesn't matter what happens, Soleil never truly seems to get sad or depressed. She most likely got this from her father, as he was this way in Awakening, though his was a bit of an act.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "You won't get away!"
    "Smile! ...You're dead."
    "This is gonna hurt a bit!"
    "Dance for me!"
  • Rapunzel Hair: It's not that obvious from her sprite, but Soleil's hair reaches past her hips.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair in her default portrait, and her Heroes artwork, and she's noted to be cheerful and energetic.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Has no issue with people looking at her as she's changing clothes, and in My Castle her response to a male Avatar walking in on her in the Hot Springs is to ask if he wants to come in too.
  • Shared Family Quirks:
    • Like her father, Soleil loves to make girls smile and flirt with them. The only difference is that Soleil is actually successful most of the time.
    • Soleil, Laslow, and Olivia, were all born in August.
    • If Peri is her mother, as revealed in the Hoshidan Festival of Bonds DLC, Soleil possibly inherits Peri's tendency towards violence when frustrated. Peri quickly tries to nip this in the bud before it gets to be a problem.
    • If her mother is Camilla, Soleil inherits her mother's love of strong women, her flirty personality, and love of teasing people. She'll also inherit her mother's energetic personality in battle.
    • If Selena is her mother, in their conversation in the Hoshidan Scramble DLC, Soleil will also be a Tsundere and despise being compared to her parents.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Shows shades of this in her supports with Nina and Ignatius, where she spies on girls from behind bushes without their knowledge.
  • Strong Family Resemblance:
    • While it's more obvious when she has a mother with hair closer to Laslow's colornote , she looks a lot like a gender-flipped version of him.
    • Should she have pink hair she greatly resembles her grandmother, Olivia.
  • Walking the Earth: Her solo ending mentions that one day she left to wander the world, never to return.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: When Laslow is about to tell her about his origins, she cuts him off because she can sense how hard the topic is for him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has pink hair in her default portrait. It's likely she inherited it from Olivia.
  • You're Cute When You're Angry: Nearly says this word-for-word in her generic supports with her mother, who gets annoyed with Soleil's gawking at her chores, and with Ophelia, who Soleil pursues to the point of annoyance on Ophelia's end.
  • Yuri Fangirl: She at least says as much during her Supports with the similarly tuned Nina.

Eye Spy
"I had to pursue my true calling. That of chivalrous thievery!"

The daughter of Niles. She's cool, collected, has a good intellect, and is exceptional when it comes to stealth and recon, but she also frequently fantasizes about men doing inappropriate things together. She is the worst at talking to the opposite sex out of everyone in the army. Her birthday is January 31st.

Class: Outlaw, Adventurer (Heirs of Fate: End)
Voiced by: Ayumi Tsuji (Japanese), Natalie Lander (English)

  • Battle Couple: Can marry the Male Avatar and any of the second generation Nohr males, as well as second generation Hoshido characters Shiro and Asugi in Revelation.
  • Bodyguard Babes: In the Heirs of Fates DLC, she and Ophelia are both Forrest's retainers.
  • Braids of Action: Two very long ones.
  • Blatant Lies: She's not as conscious of herself while talking to Forrest, so she lets slip a short little poem stemming from her fantasies right in front of him. After he hears all four stanzas, he asks what she was daydreaming about. Her answer? World peace.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Has a strained relationship with her father Niles in her recruitment paralogue and their first two supports. The family can reconcile in the end if the entire support line is pursued.
  • Cannot Talk To Men: Nina has a difficult time talking to most males.
  • Famous Last Words
    "When I chose... the same path my dad chose... I already knew... that something like this... could happen..."
    Heirs of Fate Nina: "You must be tough... to take me down... Well, it was a good life... despite it all. I regret... nothing..."
  • Foil:
    • To Asugi. Both are children who resent their father for leaving them in the Deeprealms, are introduced in a level where you have to prevent them from escaping, and act exactly the way their fathers feared they would. The difference is Nina tries to follow the path her father walked as a thief, despite his attempts to stop it, while Asugi refuses to take up the name Saizo so he can live his own life, despite his fathers attempt to ensure he does.
    • Also to Male!Kana. While Nina has a strained relationship with her father, Kana is a Momma's Boy.
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: Spends her Paralogue raiding a treasure chest, and then promptly makes an attempt to escape to force a Non-Standard Game Over.
  • Hair Decorations: A very cute headband.
  • Horse Archer: When promoted to Bow Knight.
  • Irony: She sees male homosexuality basically at every opportunity, but the only way for there to be an actual bi relationship in the male cast cast precludes the possibility of her ever existing.note 
  • Just Like Robin Hood: In her recruitment Paralogue, Niles discovers that Nina has been going around stealing from rich people to punish them. It doesn't come up much more than that though, since one of Niles's conditions for Nina joining the army was for her to either cut back on the thieving or preferably to give up on it entirely - though she only ever promises to do so until the war's over; after that, she goes back to "work."
  • Legacy of Service: In Heirs of Fate, Ophelia and Nina serve as Forrest's retainers, mimicking their parents' trio of Odin and Niles serving Leo. With mostly the same group dynamics.
  • Love Confession:
    My wildest dreams are coming to life! Let's see what the future holds...
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: In the Child Scramble DLC if Camilla is her mother, she tells Camilla that she recently started having fantasies about babies. Considering the type of fantasy Nina typically has, Camilla understandably finds this kind of alarming. It's only after Nina explains that they're not that kind of fantasy does she realize that Nina just inherited her strong maternal side.
  • Off-Model: While her normal portrait for dialogue and supports are fine, her crit/skill cut-in has has a curious problem of not properly layering her hair to her head, so you can see the child character's default grey hair sticking out through whatever hair color Nina gained from her mother. It gets worse if you look at the entire portrait, as it looks like she has a ponytail growing out of her ear. This is fixed in the Heirs of Fate DLC, but only for said DLC, as she now uses her official hair color.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "In your dreams!"
    "I spy a corpse!"
    "Look at what we have here!"
    "Watch this, everyone!"
  • The Sneaky Guy: She's extremely good at stealth and recon, making her one of the army's premiere scouts. When asked by Caeldori to just get the location of the enemy and their numbers for a mission, Nina also comes back with very detailed notes about their weaknesses, what patrol routes they take, and the locations of their weapons.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: She's an adept thief and an excellent archer, but she is terrible at conversing with men, attributed to her delusional perception of them.
  • We Help the Helpless: Nina's solo ending mentions that she forms a vigilante group after the war.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When Niles discovers that she is resorting to Robin Hood style thefts, he calls her out on it. When Nina tries to do the same, he points out how he had no choice whereas she doesn't need to resort to it.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: She often fantasizes about men being attracted to one another, is heavily implied to write inappropriate things about them in her journals, and occasionally plays out scenarios with objects.
    Nina: [playing with some weapons] The gauntlet is a swarthy young gentleman named Horst. The helmet doesn't have a name, but he's very open minded.
