FixedThese units are obtainable regardless of the player's pairing choices in Generation 1.
Holy blood: Baldur [Major], Naga [minor]
Voiced by: Yuuma Uchida (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Christian La Monte (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
- The Ace: In Thracia 776. Given how Seliph doesn't think too highly of himself, it is likely derived from the point of view of Leif, who highly looks up to him.
- Ancestral Weapon: He'll ultimately inherit Tyrfing.
- Anger Born of Worry: He has a brief moment towards Lana's Taking the Bullet attempt in the Nea Fuyuki manga.
- Beware the Nice Ones: If he gets to face Manfroy, he lets him know in no uncertain terms that he is pissed off. The Nea Fuyuki manga has him react badly in general any time an innocent or someone he cares about is killed/nearly killed.
- Bishōnen: Taken Up to Eleven in the Nea Fuyuki manga.
- Broken Ace: He feels the pressure of everyone pinning their hopes on him, particularly in the Nea Fuyuki manga where he begins to isolate himself for it.
- The Chosen One: Subverted. This is what the people think he is, but Seliph genuinely wasn't chosen by a god or a prophecy. He knew about his heritage and all, then decided that he'd had enough of Grannvale's tyranny and chose to stop hiding and start kicking arse up and down the land until he changed things.
- Cool Sword: Tyrfing.
- Cowardly Lion: He may be the leader of the rebellion, but underneath that, he's timid and even wishes to just run and hide from the war (see his conversation with Muirne); however he still soldiers on and never stops fighting for his cause.
- Curtains Match the Window: Like his father.
- Depending on the Writer: Like Sigurd, Seliph was given a far more emotional and intense side in the Oosawa manga.
- Decon-Recon Switch: His story in a nutshell. Sigurd's story deconstructs the usual Fire Emblem standards of "gather army, battle across continent." Seliph then gathers an army and battles across the continent, but he does it right.
- Disc-One Nuke: Due to Sigurd getting the lion's share of rings, a powerful sword, probably enough kills to grant his sword Critical, and a few assorted bands as well, Seliph can become extremely strong in the first generation's early game. It doesn't hurt that the vast majority of enemies in the sixth chapter use axes, meaning that Seliph can potentially solo the whole map. Certain setups can have him as a Knight Lord by the start of Chapter 7, at which point he will be your most useful unit for some time.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: His portrait in Genealogy is essentially a reverse-side Deirdre with blue hair, something that seems to have been intentional if developer notes is something to go by. The Mitsuki Oosawa manga plays up this fact by mentioning how much he looks like Deirdre on several occasions, all the while playing up his attractiveness towards both genders.
- Even the Guys Want Him: An omake in the Oosawa manga has some Red Shirts in the army discuss the girls in the army to see who's the "best idol"; Lana is deemed too sharp-tongued, Julia is too quiet, Larcei is too energetic, which leads them to conclude that Seliph is the best.
- Generation Xerox: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he, Leif, and Ares form a trio of friends just as their fathers did before them, with Oifey and Shannan commenting on the nostalgia.
- Good Is Not Soft: Typically very sweet, if not a little shy. If you're a douchebag, though, expect no mercy from him.
- The Good King: By the end of the game, he's king of Grannvale, if not a good chunk of the continent depending on how many heirs you let die.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Just like Sigurd, even moreso, considering that he can easilly inherit some good swords right from the start, including Sigurd's Silver Sword. It should be noted that he is a Swordmaster instead of a Paladin in his Spotpass inclusion in Fire Emblem Awakening.
- Heroic Lineage: Baldur from his father's side, Naga from his mother's.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Zig-zagged. To Arvis and his followers, Seliph is widely reviled as the son of a traitorous usurper whose coup nearly plunged the land into chaos. But for the oppressed, Seliph is hailed as a savior and the rightful heir of Granvalle, as much as he felt like he's not living up to the hailing he got.
- Humble Hero: He continually downplays his own importance.
- Hurting Hero: In a conversation with Muirne, he admits that the war's taking its toll on him and that on some nights, he can't even sleep.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: ...and not someone that everyone else feels the need to protect.
- Just a Kid: At the start of Gen 2, he points out that Larcei's treating him like a helpless kid, just as how she was complaining about Shannan treating her like one.
- Kid Hero: Subverted in the original game, where Seliph is at least eighteen, as that's how many years pass in-game after Deirdre's disappearance. The manga, however, ages him down a little bit.
- Lightning Bruiser: With Tyrfing, due to a boost in Speed, he becomes one.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He keeps his hair in a ponytail, and he's on the pretty side.
- Mage Killer: Once he gets the Tyrfing, he picks up a solid magic defense buff while wielding it. Having minor Naga blood also gives him a nice 20% boost to his resistance growth.
- Magnetic Hero: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he basically goes around charming people into joining his army by being such a Nice Guy.
- Martial Arts Headband: Well, a sword-fighting headband, but the principle is the same. The Light Inheritors manga has him without it at first, and donning it after he decides to fight directly against the Loptousian Empire.
- Mighty Glacier: While his Speed cap is 22, which is not bad, he has rather shaky growth of 35%. A Speed Ring is recommended. Or the Tyrfing. Or both.
- Nice Guy: A very pleasant young man who is friendly and welcoming to those who express interest in fighting alongside him. Cranked Up to Eleven in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he extends his hand to Ares even as Ares is trying to kill him and has him cornered at the edge of a cliff.
- Oblivious to Love: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he's oblivious both to Julia and Lana's feelings for him and to his own feelings for Lana.
- Older Than They Look: He's eighteen at the start of his journey, but looks considerably younger due to the art style.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In Heroes."With all strength."
"I will never yield!"
"I will protect everyone!"
"Until the end!"
- Protectorate: Shannan's in particular, due to the man swearing as a child to Deirdre that he'd look after him and owing Sigurd for saving him.
- Red Baron: "Scion of Light." Fire Emblem Heroes gives his title as "Heir of Light" instead.
- Reconstruction: Whereas Sigurd is a Deconstruction of Marth's archetype, Seliph takes everything that was dismantled during the first generation and puts it back together.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend:
- With :Julia and, in a twist on the usual scenario, they actually aren't together because they're really half-siblings.Lewyn: You're worried about Julia, aren't you...? You really like her, don't you...?
Seliph: No, I'm just worried about her.
- However, this can be subverted and the two can be made into Lovers if you exploit the jealousy system, which, due to a technical oversight, gives them relationship points despite them being half-siblings.
- With :Julia and, in a twist on the usual scenario, they actually aren't together because they're really half-siblings.
- Shy Blue-Haired Girl: He's something of a male version at the beginning.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Before Fire Emblem Awakening came out with his official name, one spot for Genealogy in Nintendo Power gave his name as "Serlis." This is even poked fun of in the most recent fan translation; Bramsel will try to remember his name, thinking it's "Serlis" or "Celice", the most common fan translations before his official name came out.
- Superior Successor: In gameplay, Seliph has a significantly worse start than Sigurd, due to starting unpromoted and being in a stronger army, but by the endgame, his higher growths, extra skills, three Leadership stars, and inheriting all of what made Sigurd so strong will make him into a better unit overall. From a story perspective, Seliph is also more thoughtful and handles the consequences of his actions much better than his father did.
- Supporting Protagonist: The line out of the story of Generalogy's second generation can be summed up as Lewyn narrating about the current situation, or talk about past history while Seliph listens and morally grows as a person. The actual personal conflict in the story are largely centered on the antagonist, or Leif many of which does not involve Seliph in any ways.
- This Is Unforgivable!: To Manfroy for... well, everything, really.
- Vengeance Feels Empty:
- Seliph feels this way after killing Emperor Arvis, who murdered his father and so many of his friends parents as well. By the Epilogue, Seliph tells Azelle's son (if he's alive) that he no longer has any hatred for him.
- The secret event between Seliph and the ghosts of his parents has the latter lecturing the former about this trope.
- Walking Spoiler: He's Sigurd's son. Beyond that, you can't talk about his role in the story at all without revealing Sigurd accidentally helps Arvis create The Empire and dies halfway through, and Seliph has to fix his mess.
- Warrior Prince: In a sense. While nobility, the constant conflict since his birth means that he's never even set foot in the very region he's meant to rule, and his title is mostly just that — a title — until he finally manages to liberate Grannvale.
- Weapon of Choice: Tyrfing, inherited from his father.
- We Cannot Go On Without You: As with all other Fire Emblem protagonists, his death results in a game over.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: To an extent in the Nea Fuyuki manga: he wants to prove himself to Shannan, albeit less so out of a need for his approval but to make Shannan recognize him as a equal and therefore stop feeling obliged to protect him.
- You Are Not Alone: Leif beats this into him (somewhat literally — they were sparring) in the Nea Fuyuki manga, fed up with Seliph's "I'm responsible for everyone's lives" attitude.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Inherited from his dad.
- You Killed My Father: Chapter 10 lets him duel Arvis. He doesn't have to be the one to kill him, but he's the best equipped for it, and even gets a special cutscene afterwards if he lands the killing blow. However, he's not quite happy about it.
Holy blood: Baldur [Minor]
Sigurd's cousin and Shannan's best friend, we meet him in Part 1 as a sweet boy who worked as The Strategist for the good guys. After the Time Skip, we meet an Older and Wiser Oifey who helped raise Seliph and the other children, trained Diarmuid in swordplay, and is now a strong fighter.
- Badass Moustache: He grows one in the 2nd Generation, mostly to hide his baby face.
- Cosplay Otaku Girl: In the Fujimori manga.
- Crutch Character: Though he gives his name to a subset of the archetype that can remain useful throughout the game, unlike his predecessors.
- Heroic Lineage: Of the Baldur bloodline, to a degree.
- Keet: Very much so in the Fujimori manga.
- Master of Disguise: Tries to be this in the Nuts Fujimori manga, but repeatedly and hilariously fails.
- MayDecember Romance: A mild case happens if he gets paired up with anyone. Fee seems to be quite smitten with him, to start.
- Meido: In the Nuts Fujimori manga, this is one of his favorite disguises.
- Mentor Archetype: He's this to the entirety of the Tirnanog group, but especially to Seliph and Diarmuid.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: He has good skillsets, good growth (comparable to Sigurd), a horse, and remains relatively useful throughout the game. However, for low levels, it's not like you actually need his help to keep Seliph's team alive thanks to how powerful the children are, and as far as late-game stats goes, he is overshadowed by almost everyone in the team. He is still considered upper-mid-tier at worst, though, given how low-maintenance he is (all he really needs is a sword better than his starting armorslayer and he's basically good forever) and his status as a mounted unit with good starting stats.
- Parental Abandonment: He mentions having been an orphan taken in by Sigurd's family. It's worth noting that he also has minor Baldur blood, so he is actually related to Sigurd, even if the relation is distant.
- Parental Substitute: Helped Edain to raise Seliph and the other kids. In the epilogue, Seliph explicitly says that he was like a father to him.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Takes over the Dukedom of Chalphy after Seliph is crowned the Emperor of Grannvale and Shannan becomes the King of Isaach.
- Sorry That I'm Dying: His Famous Last Words, as his death quote, are him apologizing to Sigurd. In this case, though, Sigurd is long dead.
- Student and Master Team: He's more than willing to fight alongside Diarmuid.
- Survivor Guilt: He's pretty downbeat about abandoning Sigurd and leaving him to die in Gen 1, even though Sigurd told him to go.
- The Strategist: Was this as a boy. Then he grew up and Took a Level in Badass, thus Lewyn takes his role.
- Team Dad: He offers stern advice and training to several of the kids.
- Teen Genius: Considering he's only fourteen at the start of the game and yet he's the army's tactician, it's safe to assume that he's this.
- Took a Level in Badass: Between the generations.
- Undying Loyalty: To Sigurd and Seliph.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Gets hit by this regarding Midir in the Nuts Fujimori manga. He still finds him irresistibly attractive even after this revelation.
Holy blood: Naga [Major], Fjalar [Minor]
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Cassandra Lee Morris (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
A sweet and shy girl who is somewhat younger than Seliph and his group, and is brought by Lewyn in the group. She has amnesia and has forgotten a good part of her past, but can handle staves and magic tomes well. She is actually Seliph's half-sister, Julius's twin sister, Deirdre's daughter with Arvis, and the second Princess of Grannvale, as well as the one holding major Naga blood in this generation.
- Adaptational Dye Job: Usually silver-haired, Fire Emblem Heroes had her hair colored purplish-pink.
- Amnesiac Hero: She has no memories from before Lewyn picked her up.
- Ancestral Weapon: She eventually gets the Book of Naga, which originally belonged to Crusader Heim.
- Badass Adorable: Very cute, and, should you give her Nosferatu, almost unkillable... the Book of Naga makes her a Game-Breaker.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Manfroy does this to her and forces her to fight against Seliph's army. This also has the purpose of keeping her Naga power from threatening Julius.
- BrotherSister Incest: Subverted, as she and Seliph have a negative love growth. However, it is possible to pair them anyway if you exploit the "Jealousy" system via strategic placing of Larcei and Lana: but this only works if you don't reset the game at all after Chapter 5. (Or if you keep them pretty much "glued" to each others's sides until she gets kidnapped.) Though they were actually originally planned to be a set-in-stone couple by chapter eight in the game's original production before the idea was changed.
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Julius's Cain.
- Deuteragonist: The twin sister of the main villain, and is essential to beating him.
- Depending on the Artist: A bit more than some other Geneaology folks. In the 90s-era art and into the new millenium, her dress tended to be floor-length and if you could ever see her feet, she was wearing short boots; this was relatively in-line with her sprite. Her initial redesign by Haimura Kiyotaka for Fire Emblem Heroes, however, shortened the dress slightly (and also made it gauzy and translucent below the ankles), allowing her feet to be easily seen... and she now wears ankle-clasped, arch-banded sandals that wouldn't look terribly out of place on Lene, Arthur or Linda. (Also, surely coincidentally, in her "damaged" state this allows her to Show Some Leg.) This has remained fairly consistent in the FEH era, with several of her Cipher cards using the new design and her variant versions, drawn by Sachie, maintaining the concepts of the Kiyotaka design.
- Hair Color Spoiler: Her white hair marks her either as related to Deirdre or a member of the Friege family, and in context, it's pretty obvious that it's not likely the latter, so...
- Heroic Lineage: Of Naga from her mother's side and Fjalar from her father's.
- Interface Spoiler: Her parentage is only a mystery to other characters once you look at her Holy Blood.
- Kissing Cousins: Technically possible, though not easy because she has zero base points and a zero natural growth with every eligible male other than Seliph. Still, by keeping her glued to one of the eligible males, you can give her a non-Seliph love interest — including, potentially, the son of her father's half-brother Azelle. Of course, Seliph is technically her cousin as well as her half-brother.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: Her appearances in the DLCs of Awakening and in Heroes make zero attempts to hide whom she's related to.
- Light 'em Up: Uses light magic such as Nosferatu, Aura, and The Book of Naga.
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Played with, she functions the same way as any other unit, but her natural love growths are all 0 with the exception of Seliph, whom she has a negative love growth with.
- Mysterious Waif: A young girl with no memories of her past...
- Mystical Waif: ...who is also a kind, quiet, and polite White Magician Girl with Mystical White Hair, is able to sense the future (to some degree), and is actually Julius's twin sister, Seliph's half-sister, and the only one alive who can use the Book of Naga.
- Mystical White Hair: A girl with no past, an affinity for magic, and silvery hair. The white hair is from her mother, Deirdre. Unlike her, the white hair doesn't coincide with Loptous blood.
- Nice Girl: Very sweet, especially in the Nea Fuyuki manga where she pleads to Seliph to not fight Iucharba and Iuchar because she can tell that they're good people.
- Non-Lethal K.O.: Much like her mother, if she is defeated in battle, once the stage is over, she'll be found by Seliph in the recently-taken castle. Grannvalian enemies aren't likely to kill their princess, and the Thracian enemies presumably want to use her as a hostage. However, after she's been cured from brainwashing in the Final Chapter, this wears off and she'll die for real after that point.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In Heroes."I... I remember!"
"Away with you!"
"I'll fight... I will!"
"May the gods protect me."
- Princess Classic:
- Has some elements of this, though she Took A Level In Bad Ass after regaining her memory. Gameplay-wise, she is far from helpless and goes from being a Badass Adorable Glass Cannon to a Game-Breaker once she gets the Book of Naga.
- Turned Up to Eleven in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where she never picks up a weapon.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When she's brainwashed by Manfroy, her eyes turn red.
- Shrinking Violet: She's on the quiet and demure side for the most part of the game, but gets a significant confidence boost late in the story.
- Silk Hiding Steel: After regaining her memories and becoming un-brainwashed, at which point she displays how much of a backbone she has. In the Nea Fuyuki manga, she displays this side long before that, when she calls Ares out on his wishy-washy attitude regarding his whole vengeance schtick.
- Single-Target Sexuality: If her love growths are anything to go by, she doesn't have any love growths with anyone except for Seliph (albeit a negative love growth but exploiting glitches can make them pairable).
- Spanner in the Works: Julia's mere existence as the major Naga blood heir can potentially throw Manfroy's plans off. If you play the game right and de-brainwash her in time, she will totally trash through them.
- Spell Book: Uses tomes as her weapon. Very notable as with her Holy Blood, you may in turn give her the Book of Naga.
- Squishy Wizard: She can't take much physical abuse. However, the Nosferatu tome can help her compensate for this.
- Supernatural Sensitivity: It's suggested that she has this, with her being able to detect Ishtar's strength without Julia herself even being entirely aware of what she's doing.
- Taking the Bullet: She comes close to doing this for Seliph in the Nea Fuyuki manga. Thankfully, Iucharba wasn't so keen on axing some random civilian.
- Theme Twin Naming: Seeing as how her name is the female version of Julius... yeah.
- Tooka Level In Badass: Both personality- and gameplay-wise, after getting her memories back.
- Trauma-Induced Amnesia: After regaining her memories, she suspects the reason she lost them in the first place was due to the shock over the entire mess of Julius killing their mother and whatnot.
- Unrequited Tragic Maiden: Towards Seliph, as she has no storyline pairings. Lampshaded by Lana if she is the chosen love interest, since she feels guilty about having her own feelings for Seliph requited when Julia's own cannot be. Averted in the Oosawa manga, where the ending strongly hints at them ending up together even after finding out about their origins, and Lana's romantic interest seems to lean more towards Scáthach instead. Subverted in the Nea Fuyuki manga: While Julia seems to have unrequited feelings for Seliph (who has romantic interest in Lana), she also has ship tease with Ares.
- Waif Prophet: Has shades of this:Julia (to Seliph): " I just have a terrible feeling that well become separated somehow, never to meet again. Im Im scared, sir."
- Weapon of Choice: The Book of Naga.
- White Magician Girl: No matter what spellbook you give her, she'll always handle staves well.
Holy blood: Nál [Minor]
The second of the three sons of Danann, the ruler of Castle Isaach and heir of Nál. A mounted axe warrior with a crush on Larcei and a somewhat kinder disposition than his dad. Sadly, he does NOT get along with Iucharba, his youngest brother; therefore, he can't be recruited if you reach for Iucharba first.
- Apologetic Attacker: To his father if used to attack him, though his sincerity is somewhat questionable.
- An Axe to Grind: Bonuses for being a mounted axe fighter.
- Bad Boss: One of his soldiers claims that he treats them "like dogs", though it's not known how seriously this was meant.
- Cain and Abel: With Iucharba and Brian.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Tries to woo Larcei/Creidne with Purple Prose if she comes to recruit him. She will tell him to cut it out.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Neither he nor Iucharba support the child hunts.
- Graceful Loser: Surrenders to Seliph's army in the Oosawa manga. Though unlike Iucharba, who did it out of respect of the late Ayra, Iuchar fell head over heels over Larcei and allows himself to taken prisoner.
- Harmful to Minors: As said below, the Oosawa manga states that as kids, both him and Iucharba were there when Danann betrays Lex and Ayra and has them killed.
- HeelFace Turn: If recruited by Larcei or Creidne.
- Heroic Lineage: Of Nál's bloodline, to a degree.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not as openly as Iucharba, but people still note that he's not as bad as his older relatives.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired with Lex's daughter. Common if the player paired Lex with Ayra, since he and Larcei are easy to pair up.
- Love at First Sight: With Larcei in the Oosawa manga, complete with an cartoonish Eye Pop.
- Martial Arts Headband: A blue (and sometimes white) one.
- Mutually Exclusive Party Members: You can get him or Iucharba, but not both.
- Patricide: If you personally make him kill his father. Much like Lex, he's not quite as torn up about it (save for in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he's horrified at the prospect).
- Purple Prose: He even waxes it out when he dies!Iuchar (as an enemy): Ahh... The virtuous rebel army has defeated me... Larcei/Creidne, our love is eternal...
Iuchar (as an ally): Though Iuchar dies, love will never... Guhaa...
- Recurring Element: He and his brother are continuing the trend of Mutually Exclusive Party Members left by Arran and Samson (Iuchar most likely took after Arran due to being a horse unit).
- Something About a Rose: In most illustrations.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Of sorts. In the Fuyuki and Oosawa mangas, Seliph recruits both him and his brother, whereas in the game one of them must die.
- Those Two Guys: In the manga, since both he and Iucharba live, the two of them become this.
Holy blood: Nál [Minor]
The third and youngest of the sons of Danann, the ruler of Sophara and heir of Nál. He is a Hot-Blooded axe fighter who tries to act like a tough loner but has a good heart. Too bad he doesn't get along with Iuchar; therefore, he can't be recruited if you reach for Iuchar first.
- Apologetic Attacker: Like Iuchar, if you make him attack Danann, and similarly with questionable sincerity.
- An Axe to Grind: On foot, unlike his brother.
- Cain and Abel: He's on terrible terms with his older siblings Iuchar and Brian.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Doesn't hurt kids or women, unlike the rest of Danann's troops. And neither of the brothers like the child hunts.
- For Great Justice: He'll declare this if recruited.
- Graceful Loser: When approached by Larcei in the Oosawa manga, instead of fighting her, he surrenders and allows himself to be taken prisoner upon seeing how she strongly resembles her mother.
- Harmful to Minors: In the Oosawa manga, he and Iuchar witnessed something horrible: their cruel father Danann's betrayal and murder of both Lex and Ayra. Years later, he tells Larcei and Scáthach what happened, and he even adds that as the servants took both boys away, the last thing he saw of his uncle and aunt was Ayra getting ready to make her Last Stand.
- HeelFace Turn: If recruited by Larcei or Creidne.
- Heroic Lineage: Like his brothers, of Nál's.
- Hot-Blooded: He's very enthusiastic about beating his brother in their quest for Larcei's hand.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold:"He acts like a bad guy, but is honorable deep inside."
- Kissing Cousins: If paired with Lex's daughter. Common if you paired Lex with Ayra, since he and Larcei are easy to pair up.
- Love at First Sight: With Larcei in the mangas.
- Martial Arts Headband: A green one.
- Mutually Exclusive Party Members: You can get him or Iuchar, but not both.
- Nothing Personal: What he tells Danann if Iucharba attacks him.
- Patricide: If you personally make him kill his father. Much like Lex, he's not quite as torn up about it (save for in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he's horrified at the prospect).
- Recurring Element: He and his brother are continuing the trend of Mutually Exclusive Party Members left by Arran and Samson (Iucharba took after Samson for being a foot unit).
- Sorry That I'm Dying: To Larcei, if you kill him as an enemy unit.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Of sorts. In the Nea Fuyuki manga and Oosawa manga, Seliph recruits both him and his brother, whereas in the game one of them must die.
- Those Two Guys: In the manga, since both he and Iuchar live, the two of them become this.
- Youngest Child Wins: If he's recruited.
Holy blood: Baldur [Minor], Njörun [Minor]
Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Nicolas Roye (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
Seliph's paternal cousin and the youngest son of Quan and Ethlyn, raised by Finn in hiding.
- Ascended Extra: His later role as The Hero of Thracia 776.
- Boring, but Practical: Master Knight Leif is unable to equip a Holy Weapon, in exchange for being able to equip almost every weapon in the game (A Rank in every weapon other than Light (C Rank) and Darkness Tomes). However, for the most part, Leif is one of the best staff users, especially Rescue Staves, which is really useful when combined with his high movement as a mounted unit and his amazing combat capability.
- The Cameo: Marth has a Palette Swap based on him in the Super Smash Bros franchise.
- Deuteragonist: Except Seliph and Lewyn, Leif is the third most significant character in the story. The stretch between chapter 7 to 9 are set in Thracian peninsula, which largely covers his personal conflict. This part of the story is so significant, that a good chunk of the next game, Thracia 776 is basically a How We Got Here towards the chapter 7 of Genealogy.
- Generation Xerox:
- He looks a lot like a younger version of Quan, and his canon pairing according to Thracia 776 pairs him with the Troubadour Nanna, which mirrors Quan and Ethlyn. (This is even lampshaded in Genealogy.)
- In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he, Seliph, and Ares form a trio of friends just as their fathers did before them, with Oifey and Shannan commenting on the nostalgia.
- Good Is Not Soft: He's a good kid, but he's also devoted to restoring his country, no matter what it takes. He also expresses a very deep desire to personally kill Travant "with his bare hands" in their battle quote.
- Heroic Lineage: Of Baldur's from his mother's side and Njörun from his father's, but both minor enough that he can't wield any Holy Weapons.
- Hero of Another Story: He was leading a rebellion in Leonster as Seliph began his holy war. This rebellion is shown in Thracia 776.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: As a Master Knight, Leif can do everything other than wielding Holy Weapons. However, he has a pretty weak start.
- Last of His Kind: Initially believed to be the only surviving member of Leonster's royal family — until Altena shows up, at least.
- Magikarp Power: Very difficult to train up unless you can get him to inherit the Pursuit Ring or a Brave Sword via the pawn shop, but he goes from low-level prince to ass-kicking Master Knight.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: If up against Bloom."You've made my people suffer, King Bloom. You'll die for what you've done."
- Red Baron: Sage-Lord.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: So much so the game's narrative questioned why everyone other than him is stuck in Thracia.
- Took a Level in Badass: After his promotion to Master Knight and generally in comparison to how he was in his own game.
- Warrior Prince: In a similar vein to Seliph. He's technically not ruler of his country just yet, due to it having been taken over, but he's fighting to reclaim it.
Holy blood: Od [Major]
Voiced by: Toshiki Masuda (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Ted Sroka (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
The half-nephew of Ayra and the son of King Mariccle of Isaach. He is the rightful heir to the Isaachian throne occupied by Danann after the Time Skip. Raised by Edain alongside the other kids, he is one of the oldest of the group and has a huge responsibility on his shoulders in liberating his own country.
- Ancestral Weapon: Balmung, which he'll receive fairly early on.
- Anger Born of Worry: In his last lovers conversation with Patty, he gets angry at her when she brings him lunch...on a battlefield, where she should absolutely not be letting her guard down. This also happens when he reunites with Larcei in the Oosawa manga.
- Badass Adorable: Very cruel aversion in the Oosawa manga. We do see the kid beating up adult fighters in the arena, but the rendition of Deirdre's capture is something very different; bless his heart for trying to help, but he gets completely trashed by Manfroy, and it's when Deirdre tries to save him that she lowers her defense enough for Manfroy to get at her.
- Big Brother Instinct: He's rather protective of Seliph, who looks up to him as an older brother of sorts.
- Big Brother Mentor: To all of the children raised in Isaach, but especially Seliph.
- Body Double: He has a looklike in Chapter 9 when entering a village with Jeanne or Hermina. Considering that a man named Shannam in Thracia 776 is under his request as his double, it is strongly implied to be him.
- Broken Ace: Aside from his Failure Knight issues, this is implied towards the end of the game, where in a conversation Seliph credits all of his swordsmanship skills to him, to which he gives a somewhat lackluster response and Seliph then comments on how tired he seems (which Shannan then deflects by joking that Seliph's calling him old).
- Chick Magnet: Patty, Daisy, Creidne, Larcei...
- Cool Sword: Balmung.
- Disc-One Nuke: You'll get him (and Balmung) early on in the second chapter of Gen 2, and depending on how the rest of your army from the previous chapter turned out, there's a very real possibility that you'll need him to take on the bosses, if not solo the entire map.
- The Faceless: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, his face is always obscured in some way until he's explicitly introduced.
- Failure Knight: Driven to be strong since he failed to keep Deirdre from being kidnapped and memory-wiped by Manfroy.
- Fallen Princess: Forced to flee his country with Ayra as a child due to his father knowing that Isaach didn't stand a chance in the war, with Grannvale ultimately taking over. At the end of the game, if he survives, he'll finally inherit his birthright as Isaach's king.
- Fanservice Pack: Heroes is very flattering to him appearance-wise. He's given notably prominent pectorals straining a very tight undershirt in his art set, and said undershirt doesn't hesitate to literally explode into shreds in his injured artwork to expose his chest.
- Heroic Lineage: Holding Major Od blood, and thus the inheritor of its Ancestral Weapon that he travels to the Yied Desert to retrieve.
- I Gave My Word: He promised Deirdre that he'd look after Seliph, to the point where in Ch. 5, when Sigurd tries to get Oifey to take Seliph and flee, Shannan basically forces him to let him accompany them, making it clear that he won't hand Seliph over to anyone else.
- I Owe You My Life: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, at least, it's mentioned that part of his devotion to Seliph stems from all that Sigurd did for him.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired with Larcei.
- Last of His Kind: If Ayra didn't marry, then he's the sole remaining member of the Isaachian royal family, which becomes particularly obvious in hindsight if he doesn't make it to the end of the game.
- Little Miss Badass: By the time Ch. 5 rolls around, he's mentioned to be a good enough fighter that he's apparently all the protection that Oifey and Seliph need while fleeing to Isaach despite likely being only in his preteen years or so.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His hair reaches his waist, and he's fairly attractive.
- Master Swordsman: Aside from being your sole prepromoted Swordmaster unit, a few of his conversations involve him giving swordsmanship lessons/advice to others, and he was the one who taught Seliph.
- MayDecember Romance: A May September case happens if he gets paired up with anyone, since all the gen 2 females are 15-ish years younger than he is.
- My Greatest Failure: Still hasn't forgiven himself for failing to protect Deirdre, years later.
- No Hero to His Valet: He's more casual to Seliph than most are, with his wife (should he be married) calling him out on it in the epilogue as Seliph is then the to-be king of Grannvale. Seliph, on his part, doesn't mind, as he sees Shannan like a brother to him.
- Parental Abandonment: His father was assassinated, and his mother is never mentioned, but she's presumably dead as well, hence why he's in Ayra's custody.
- Parental Substitute: If Shannan is dead but Scáthach/Dalvin is alive, he'll mention in the epilogue that Shannan was the closest thing to a father that he and his sister had.
- Protectorate: Ayra's in Gen 1.
- Rebel Leader: Leader of the resistance against Isaach's tyrannical government in part 2. And he's crowned as King of Isaach if he makes it to the end of the game.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: If you pair him up with Genki Girl Patty/Daisy.
- Sorry That I'm Dying: His Famous Last Words, should he be killed, are him apologizing to Seliph.
- The Stoic: Compared to his more energetic self as a child, he grew up into this.
- Strong Family Resemblance: When grown up, he looks exactly like his dad Mariccle. Seriously!
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: He can be somewhat aloof and uptight, and his love conversations show that he's not exactly the most romantic person, but he's warmer to those he cares about.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's got the looks, and several of the Generation 2 girls are smitten with him.
- Took a Level in Badass: Like Oifey, between the generations.
- Underestimating Badassery: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, the Loptous Cult members at Yied Shrine claim that he's no threat without Balmung — immediately before he proceeds to beat them up.
- Undying Loyalty: Towards Seliph, with even his death quote being directed to him. See I Gave My Word and I Owe You My Life for why.
- Warrior Prince: Like Seliph and Leif, a disgraced prince who intends on reclaiming his birthright.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: In the Oosawa manga, Oifey comments on Shannan handling leaving behind Sigurd and co. to flee with the children more maturely than him despite Shannan being the younger one.
- Would Hit a Girl: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he makes it clear that he doesn't discriminate against enemies based on gender and would've killed Tine if Arthur hadn't stopped him.
Holy blood: Hezul [Major]
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Robbie Daymond (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
Son of Eldigan and Lachesis' nephew, and the holder of the major Hezul blood.
- Aborted Arc: It is entirely possible for Ares to never learn of his father's death and his animosity of Seliph to go unresolved. The event where he finds out the truth is only initiated by Nanna, not Jeanne. As the result, him completely forgetting about his grudge in the epilogue comes off as jarring.
- Aloof Ally: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he remains standoffish to the others even after joining them.
- Ancestral Weapon: He inherits Mysteltainn from Eldigan, as the holy weapon that originally belonged to the Crusader Hezul.
- Black Knight: A more benevolent version than usual, but he still makes it clear that he's not Seliph's friend. He seems to warm up by the end of the game, particularly if he receives his father's letter from Nanna.
- Broken Pedestal: Javarro, his Parental Substitute, becomes this for him once he realizes how callous the man is regarding Lene's fate.
- Call-Back: The stage design and his joining situation are radically similar to Chapter 2 and Beowulf.
- Cool Sword: Mysteltainn.
- Disc-One Nuke: You recruit him about halfway through the second chapter of the second generation, and between his possession of Mysteltainn, being mounted, and having no real weaknesses, he'll likely be one of your best units.
- The Dulcinea Effect: Turns against both his employer and the man who raised him since childhood, and sides with his (presumed) mortal enemy, to rescue a girl he only recently met and befriended.
- Enemy Mine: He joins Seliph's army on his own because he needs their help to fight Javarro and Bramsel.
- Fallen Princess: Was raised by a mercenary named Javarro after Nordion fell, his dad was executed, and his mom was killed when Leonster also was invaded. If he makes it to the end of the game, he returns to Agustria so he can take over and reconstruct it.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With Seliph, once they sort the Sins of Our Fathers issues out.
- Generation Xerox: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he, Seliph, and Leif form a trio of friends just as their fathers did before them, with Oifey and Shannan commenting on the nostalgia.
- HeelFace Turn: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he starts off as an enemy.
- Heroic Lineage: Of Hezul's, from his father.
- Kissing Cousins: Since he's the son of Eldigan, this happens if he's paired with Lachesis's daughter Nanna.
- Mage Killer: The Mystletainn gives him a substantial resistance boost.
- Palette Swap: His sprite is a heavily edited version of his father's.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In Heroes."Drink, Mystletainn!"
"You would become my prey?"
"I will take your life!"
- Ship Tease: With Julia in the Nea Fuyuki manga.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Looks very much like his father, except facing the other direction and wearing a suit of black armor.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Fairly cold to most, but caring if he likes you.
- Tragic Keepsake: Aside from the Mystletainn? A letter from Eldigan that Lachesis gave to Nanna before leaving. She gives it to him as proof that Sigurd and Eldigan never were enemies.
- Unskilled, but Strong: He essentially relies on the Mystletainn to hit accurately. Without it, he has some trouble hitting enemies at times.
- You Killed My Father: When he joins, he makes it clear that he wants to kill Seliph because he believes Sigurd killed Eldigan. (Which may or may not be true, depending how you played.) He gives this up, though, and the chapter following his joining has Nanna giving him a letter that proves to him that Sigurd and Eldigan were never enemies. In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he actually starts off as an enemy.
Holy blood: Njörun [Major], Baldur [Minor]
Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Morgan Berry (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
The princess of Leonster, as well as Quan and Ethlyn's daughter and Leif's older sister. Raised by the killer of her parents, Travant, she appears as an enemy but soon starts having doubts about her mission and heritage, thus she can be swayed to your side.
- Ancestral Weapon: She wields Gáe Bolg.
- Anti-Villain: Until she's recruited.
- Apologetic Attacker: If she attacks Finn.
- Blade on a Stick: Her Gáe Bolg lance.
- Broken Bird: Despite starting off in Thracia, she has many doubts about what it's doing. The Nea Fuyuki manga also implies that she had a rather unhappy childhood being raised by Travant, as well.
- Death Faked for You: Finn and Leif assumed she died in the Yied Massacre and thus weren't aware that she was alive.
- Dragon Rider: Being raised in Thracia, the land of wyvern knights, results in this. And one of the only two flying units in generation two, to boot.
- HeelFace Turn: She starts off as loyal to Travant, but his orders trouble her deeply and meeting her long-lost brother compounds this to the point where she decides to turn against Thracia.
- Heroic Lineage: Of Njörun from her father's side and Baldur from her mother's. The former is why Travant kidnapped her instead of killing her.
- Lady of War: She comes across as very mature and graceful.
- Long Lost Sibling: To Leif, though she doesn't know it. He can reveal this to her, plant the seeds of doubt in her heart (leading her to call out Travant), and make her pull a HeelFace Turn.
- Not Blood Siblings: Heavily implied that she and Arion are lovers. The fact that she can't be paired up with anyone else in your army supports this.
- If Arion dies in the final chapter, Seliph points out that she loved him, to which she replies, "Please do not speak of that again! Its ended and over "
- Not Quite Dead: Arion only knocks her out instead of killing her when she confronts Travant regarding the murder of her parents.
- Recurring Element: The red dragon rider that defects from the enemy faction, just like Minerva. Even her name sounds similar to "Athena", the Greek equivalent of Minerva's namesake.
- Tomboy Princess: Let's be real: could you really imagine Travant raising her to be a Princess Classic?
- Tyke-Bomb: The reason Travant kidnapped her was to groom her into a Gáe Bolg wielder loyal to him.
- Warrior Princess: As the princess of Leonster and adoptive princess of Thracia.
- The Wise Prince: Female version for Thracia, as she heavily dislikes the army's disregard for the lives of innocent people.
The most powerful general of the Thracian kingdom, and a noble and just person who is very well-loved. Unfortunately, his boss, King Travant, has caught on to his intentions...
- Awesome, but Impractical: He's a prepromoted General with fairly high base stats, but much like Arden, he really can't catch up with the team, so it's best to just have him defend the home castle.
- Cool Old Guy: While his exact age is unclear, he's definitely much older than everyone else, as evidenced by the wrinkles on his portrait and his huge Badass Beard.
- Four-Star Badass: A respected General of Thracia.
- Married to the Job: According to a villager.
- Mighty Glacier: He's quite strong (and his class grants him the Great Shield skill, which prevents the enemy's attack from doing any damage upon activation), but he doesn't have a lot of movement.
- Parental Substitute: To Coirpre.
- Recurring Element: Mirrors Lorenz as the enemy general who can join your side since he's been pushed to beyond his standards, although the hoops you had to go through before recruiting him is more reminiscent of Sheena.
- Red Baron: "The Shield of Thracia".
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: About the only thing he's especially good at is castle defense... which is why it's a good thing that his joining chapter is one of the only ones where your home castle is actually at risk of being lost.
ChildrenChildren of Edain
- Heroic Lineage: Minor-blooded descendants of Ulir, much like their mother. However, only Lester benefits from the blood as Lana doesn't use bows.
Holy blood:* Ulir [Minor]
The daughter of Edain, and a quite powerful healer. As strong-willed as she is kind, she's among the first who joins Seliph's quest.
- Boring, but Practical: At worst, she'll turn out to be a slightly improved version of Edain and a reliable healer. Therefore, most players focus on improving Lester (who is easy to screw up) when selecting fathers.
- Childhood Friend Romance: She's in love with Seliph, and she can also have this if paired with Scáthach or Diarmuid.
- Cool Big Sis: To Julia. To the point that Lana feels guilty if she hooks up with Seliph, believing that she's betraying Julia's love for him.
- Florence Nightingale Effect: In the Oosawa manga, she starts getting Ship Tease with Scáthach when she takes care of him after he almost dies killing Danann, much to Lester's chagrin.
- Generation Xerox: If Aideen is paired up, Lana will be very similar to her. Lampshaded by Finn if he's her dad.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Like her mother, she's a blond, kind-hearted healer, though her hair takes on a more orange-y tint.
- Implied Love Interest: Mechanically Lana is this towards Seliph, she has the highest base love points with him as well as an early join time to seal the relationship quickly.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired up with Brigid's son, Febail. Technically BrotherSister Incest as well, as they're genetic siblings due to Brigid and Edain being identical twins.
- Plucky Girl: When Seliph tells her "nuns and warfare DO NOT MIX", she stands her ground and refuses to leave. Seliph admits he's wrong and lets her join.Lana: Nuns can fight too, you know. I feel just as strongly about this as Larcei does. The imperial troops are becoming crueler with each passing day. It's dangerous just to be a girl anymore! But I don't plan to go down without a fight. I have my own means of warfare!
- Silk Hiding Steel: Like her mom. On promotion, she could use some tomes, with strength depending on who her father is.
- Taking the Bullet: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, she's prepared to do this for Julia. Luckily for both parties involved, hurting Lana isn't something Seliph, who's nearby, will stand for.
- Unrequited Tragic Maiden: If she's not paired up with anyone, she'll muse about having an Unrequited Love for Seliph that he was oblivious to...
- White Mage: Again, takes after her mom.
Holy blood:* Ulir [Minor]
Edain's son, Lana's brother, and Seliph's good friend. He is a skilled archer like many descendants of Ulir.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Patty, whom he teases and bickers with.
- Big Brother Instinct: After the Empire begins moving on the Resistance hideout, he's keen on finding Lana and making sure she's okay.
- Played up and for laughs in the Oosawa manga, where he does NOT take it well when it looks like Scáthach and Lana are crushing on each other.
- Big Damn Heroes: His introduction in the Oosawa manga, where he rescues Edain and Lana when the abbey and its surroundings are nearly taken over.
- Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair and blue eyes.
- Horse Archer: He's mounted and wields bows.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired up with Brigid's daughter, Patty. Technically BrotherSister Incest as well, as they're genetic siblings due to Brigid and Edain being identical twins.
- Not Quite Dead: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, after Febail shoots him.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He actually looks a lot like Lex.
Children of Ayra
- Good Bad Bug: If Chulainn is their father, they can wield Balmung due to their father giving them Major blood. However, since Balmung is considered "locked" on Shannan, it requires a series of glitches and tricks that would allow them to wield Balmung.
- Heroic Lineage: The minor-blood descendant of Od, much like their mother.
- Master Swordsman: They are powerful swordsman, like their mother and cousin Shannan.
Holy blood:* Od [Minor]
Voiced by: Atsumi Tanezaki (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Lizzie Freeman (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
One of Ayra's Half-Identical Twins children, and a Hot-Blooded swordwoman just like her mom. She was raised with Seliph and has a crush on her cousin Shannan, though her romantic feelings can be swayed towards others.
- Action Girl: Just like her mother.
- Boyish Short Hair: Her hair is short except for two long strands of hair as part of her bangs.
- BrotherSister Team: While any sibling pair can technically be this, special mention goes to her and Scáthach for debuting together (and having stronger shades of this in general in the Oosawa and Fuyuki mangas).
- Cute Bruiser: She is rather cute and quick to join in the fighting.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: In the Nea Fuyuki manga.
- Dude Magnet: Both Iucharba and Iuchar have it bad for her, to her displeasure.
- Gender-Blender Name: Her original name in Japanese is derived from Luchtaine, a male Irish deity. This is probably what motivated the change to her name in Fire Emblem Awakening, where she appeared in English for the first time.
- Generation Xerox: She really is very, very much like her mom (though perhaps even more Hot-Blooded) and fills the same role in Seliph's army. Also very true on a purely technical level, as she straight-up shares battle sprites with Ayra and her in-game portrait is literally Ayra's face with slightly different hair and clothing, and the same can be said with artwork comparisons with her mother in Fire Emblem Heroes, right down to the poses they take. Much like with Lana, this is lampshaded by Finn if he's her father.
- Genki Girl: Shows some traits in the Oosawa manga, especially in her introduction. Though she can be more serious when the occasion calls for it, like when she and Lana recall their Cool Big Sis Creidne's Heroic Sacrifice and when she gives a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Dalvin for his FaceHeel Turn, with Scáthach having to give her a Cooldown Hug.
- Half-Identical Twins: She and Scáthach look extremely similar.
- Hot-Blooded: She's very much the most eager-to-fight in Seliph's group, and is the most pleased to be kicking things off at the start of the second gen. Fire Emblem Awakening likes to hang a lampshade on this by giving her the "Quick Burn" skill, which massively boosts her hit and avoidance at the start of a fight which then cools off.
- Just a Kid: She complains about Shannan giving her and the others this treatment, regarding why, at the beginning of the second generation, they rarely get to see the action.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired with Shannan. Also with Iuchar/Iucharba if her father is Lex.
- Lightning Bruiser: Often has high speeds thanks to Ayra's growths, but can naturally deal more damage if her father is strength-oriented.
- Missing Mom: She firmly believes Ayra is still alive somewhere, even chastising Scáthach when he contradicts her.
- Palette Swap: Her sprite is a heavily edited version of her mother's.
- Plucky Girl: When Scáthach first comes to tell them that the empire is coming for them, her immediate response is to take up arms to fight.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Scáthach's blue. Being more Hot-Blooded of the two.
- Rescue Romance: Possibly, if paired up with Shannan, seeing as how she mentions that he once saved her from the Imperial troops.
- Secret Art: In Heroes, apart from her mother Ayra she's the only unit to get the Regnal Astra skill.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: In the Oosawa manga, she and Scáthach are a sibling version of this trope.
- Shipper on Deck: For Scáthach/Lana in the Oosawa manga.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Her mugshot is really Ayra's portrait but edited to have shorter hair and wearing a different outfit. Iucharba in the Oosawa manga easily recognizes her because of her similar appearance to her mother.
- Tsundere: Towards Iuchar or Iucharba.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Scáthach, of the sibling variety.
- You Killed My Father: Very much present in the Oosawa manga. Since both Ayra and Lex were betrayed by Danann, she loses it in rage when Iucharba tells her and tries to infiltrate Danann's stronghold to kill him. Bad thing, she's captured and slated for a Public Execution, but once Seliph and Co. free her, she and Scáthach kill Danann together.
Holy blood:* Od [Minor]
The other half of Ayra's Half-Identical Twins children, also raised with Seliph and Shannan alongside other fugitive royal kids. Levelheaded and soft-spoken, but as strong as his twin sister.
- Big Brother Instinct: He's quite protective of Larcei; though she can take care of herself, she's also very quick to fight.
- BrotherSister Team: With Larcei.
- Deadpan Snarker: His appearance in Fire Emblem Awakening has him lapsing into sarcasm when facing Owain.
- Dub Name Change: Oh boy. He went from Skasaha/Skasaher in Japanese, then he was localized to Ulster in Awakening and remained like that for the English version for years, then in 2020 in Heroes it was changed to Scáthach, being more consistent with the Japanese version of his name. Taken Up to Eleven when Larcei's description in Heroes mentions him as Ulster AGAIN. However, later on it was revealed that Intelligent Systems decided to use the name Ulster for the homeland of Miranda (previously known as Alster), and thus went back to Scáthach for the boy.
- Gender-Blender Name: His name is derived from the female warrior Scáthach of Irish mythology. Likely because to avoid this trope, his initial translated name was "Ulster", which comes from the "Ulster Cycle" of said mythology, until Ulster became the name chosen for the translation of Miranda's homeland in Thracia 776.
- Half-Identical Twins: With Larcei.
- Knight Templar Big Brother: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he does not take well to Iuchar and Iucharba's moves towards Larcei, and makes it clear to them with a murderous atmosphere. Arthur (in a similar situation with Tine) even refers to him as "comrade".
- The Lancer: To Seliph, alongside Larcei. He offers the calm, cautious perspective.
- Lightning Bruiser: Often has high speeds thanks to Ayra's growths, but can naturally deal more damage if his father is strength-oriented.
- Nice Guy: Very levelheaded and kind, sometimes has to keep his sister from running off on her own. Awakening reflects this by giving him the "Patience" skill, as opposed to Larcei's "Quick Burn".
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Larcei's red. Being a more calmer Nice Guy.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Must be an Od trait.
- The Generic Guy: To some degree, he looks much like a common Isaachian swordsman.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: In the Oosawa manga, he and Larcei are a sibling version of this trope.
- Ship Tease: In the Oosawa manga, he gets this with Lana. She patches him up after he and Larcei defeat Danann together, Seliph and Larcei can't help commenting on the chemistry between them, and later he's at the receiving end of Lester's fury for it...
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Larcei, of the sibling variety.
Children of Lachesis
Holy blood:* Hezul [Minor] *
The oldest of Lachesis's children, and a mounted swordsman. Was taught swordplay by Oifey while being raised by Edain.
- Childhood Friend Romance: If paired with Lana or Larcei.
- Failed a Spot Check: Strangely, he simply mentions Finn as a "knight of Leonster" even when he's his father.
- The Lancer: To his cousin Ares in the ending, whom he follows to Agustria if he doesn't inherit a land from his father's line.
- Long-Lost Relative: Nanna had no idea he existed until they finally meet each other for the first time.
- Prince Charming: He's a prince with the Charm skill, so it's easy to connect the dots.
- Student and Master Team: He's eager to show his mentor Oifey how far he's come.
- Utility Party Member: He will always have Charm from inheritance, meaning that he is always useful at supporting allies with a boost in hit and avoid, even if his father hampers his offensive capabilities.
Holy blood:* Hezul [Minor]*
Voiced by: Kaori Nazuka (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Abby Trott note (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
Diarmuid's younger sister and the other child of Lachesis. Unlike Diarmuid, she grew up in Leonster alongside Leif, and was taken care of by Finn.
- Calling the Old Man Out: Mild case, if Finn is her father. In their Chapter 7 talk, she has just found out that Lachesis never reached for Diarmuid and went missing after getting into the Yied desert, and is not happy about it.
- Combat Medic: This is the game where Troubadours wield swords, though whether she's better at hacking or healing will largely depend on who her father was.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Regarding Leif in the Nea Fuyuki manga.
- Depending on the Artist: Her eye color has changed through different arts. She had brown eyes (Genealogy), green eyes (Heroes), and blue eyes (Thracia) throughout her appearance in the series, with several Cipher cards even picking one of the other.
- Kissing Cousins: With Ares, if you pair them.
- The Lancer: She also follows Ares to Augustria if she's not paired up.
- Official Couple: Thracia 776 establishes her and Leif as this.
- Palette Swap: Besides her hair and feather, she has the same face sprite as her mother's.
- Plucky Girl: Nanna is very stubborn and brave in the face of danger. In Thracia, i.e., she's once captured alongside Mareeta, and when her captors try to use her as a hostage she immediately tells the group to not give in.
- Recurring Element: Your secondary noble healer who was in distress (in this game, being surrounded with enemies) during the time she appeared, which was quite similar with Maria. Bonus points for being a little sister to someone else (Diarmuid), and also repeating the role in Thracia 776.
- Support Party Member: She is an useful unit with her healing capabilities and the Charm skill which lets her support allies with a boost in hit and avoid.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Her mugshot is an edited version of Lachesis's to have shorter hair and have feathers in it.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: In Genealogy of the Holy War, if you don't pair her with Leif.
- Victorious Childhood Friend: Officially becomes this with Leif in both Thracia 776 and the Nea Fuyuki manga.
Children of Erinys
- Badass Normal: Like their mother, they by default do not possess any holy blood, but they can still kick just as much ass as the other children. Averted if they does have a father with holy blood though, which according to side-material and the midquel is canonically the case.
Holy blood:* None *
A Pegasus knight in training who hails from Silesse, and the daughter of Erinys.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: She bickers entertainingly with Arthur.
- Big Brother Worship: She makes it clear in her conversation with Ced that she pretty much thinks he's the greatest.
- Blade on a Stick: She is after all a Pegasus Knight.
- Blue Blood: If Lewyn's her father. Which he canonically is.
- Boyish Short Hair: She's got the hairstyle and is one of the more melee-oriented female characters of Gen 2, after Larcei and Altena.
- Break the Cutie: If you pair her up but let her husband die by the end of the game. In the epilogue, what would normally be a conversation with Seliph about how she's a Genki Girl is instead replaced by her breaking down when Seliph asks how she is.
- Calling the Old Man Out: To Lewyn, if he's her dad. And she keeps resenting him afterwards.
- Combat Medic: Gains staves after promotion.
- Curtains Match the Window: Like her mother.
- Dead Guy Junior: Not her, but her pegasus mount is named after Annand, her deceased aunt. A hidden event showed that she gave her mount that name as a way to commemorate her.
- Failed a Spot Check: If Lewyn was paired with Tailtiu, then she fails to recognize Arthur as her own prince despite being a knight. (Granted, it's not like he would have been on TV.)
- Fragile Speedster: As per her class.
- Genki Girl: She's very eager to start fighting in the liberation army.
- Heroic Lineage: In the Nea Fuyuki manga and Thracia 776, Lewyn is her father, and so she has minor Forseti blood.
- Inconsistent Dub: Her name was spelled "Phee" in Awakening before becoming "Fee" as of Heroes.
- Jumped at the Call: She apparently thought that "this [joining the liberation army] is my calling" and just up and left Silesse.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Tells Arthur that her mom used to tell her a bunch of stories about Sigurd and the Holy Knights. Those stories really inspired her and are her big motivator for joining Seliph.
- Plucky Girl: Despite not being able to find her brother before she meets Seliph, she's not very worried; In fact, she has a feeling they'll meet up soon.
- Stepford Smiler: Karin in Thracia 776 mentions that, after Erinys's death, Fee's been putting on a brave face in public, but breaking down and crying in private.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Much like her mother being similar to Palla, Fee is character-wise very similar to Est. Both are young, short-haired Pegasus Knights with a cheerful outlook on life and fighting.
- Tragic Keepsake: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, she gets Thunder Sword, a memento from Erinys.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, she's pretty desperate to get Lewyn's approval, or heck, even just his attention.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair that she inherits from Erinys (and Lewyn, if he's her dad).
Holy blood:* None *
Voiced by: Gakuto Kajiwara (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Phil Reich (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
Erinys's son, Fee's brother, and an extremely powerful magic user. He is considered "Ced the Brave" for fighting against the empire.
- Ancestral Weapon: While Forseti will technically go to whomever has Lewyn as a father, Thracia 776 makes Ced his canon son, in which he's the official inheritor. Averted in Heroes, where his status as Lewyn's son were made ambiguous again since he only carried the tome called 'Wind of Silesse', presumably since he's based on the FE4 version, where any other man from Sigurd's army can be his father.
- Blow You Away: While he's a sage who masters all anima and light magic, to fans, Forseti is his Iconic Item thanks to how damn powerful it makes him.
- Calling the Old Man Out: Not as harshly as Fee, but he's definitely not pleased with Lewyn if he's the father.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: He can't ignore people in need, with Fee noting that him putting aside his quest of searching for his father to help the people of Manster is so like him. To an extent, it's to a detriment: Thracia 776 points out that that this all led to him taking too long and ultimately failing in his original purpose, with him not even being there at Erinys's side when she passed away.
- Curtains Match the Window: Like his mother.
- While averted in his FE4 game portrait where he is heterochromatic, with one green eye and one brown eye, it is likely just a coloring error as Ishtar also has a similar issue.
- Determinator: He's utterly devoted to protecting Manster, going as far as to state in the Nea Fuyuki manga that it doesn't matter even if he's alone or powerless, and was prepared to pull a Last Stand when things started looking truly grim.
- Generation Xerox:
- To the Crusader Ced himself, as pointed out in Thracia 776.
- Plus, while probably coincidental, if he has Lewyn as his father, then Ced inadvertently mimicked his actions in Gen 1: as prince of Silesse, he left behind his mother and the country, with a Pegasus Knight going out in search of him.
- Hero of Another Story: In Thracia 776.
- Heroic Lineage: In the Nea Fuyuki manga and Thracia 776, Lewyn is his father and he wields Forseti, meaning that he inherited his major Forseti blood.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Does a fine job of defending Manster from Thracia, yet believes he hasn't done enough."Manster had a great number of children seized and sent to the shrine in Miletos. I was unable to prevent it... I'm not brave, sir. I'm a coward if anything."
- Implied Love Interest: While he can be paired with anyone, the game seems to hint that Ced's main destined pairing is with Tine. Not only
- Infinity -1 Sword: With Lewyn as his father, he gets Forseti and insane stat growths.
- Last Stand: His dialogue with the villagers of Manster in his debut implies that if Seliph and his army hadn't made it there in time, pulling this off was Ced's intention.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: In Awakening's DLC, he wields Forseti, making it clear that he's canonically Lewyn's son even if one hasn't played Thracia 776.
- Left Hanging: He left his home in order to find his father. Unless his father is Lewyn, he will never reach a conclusion by the end of the final battle.
- Legacy Character: He's named after the Crusader Ced, whom he may not be related to if his father's not Lewyn, in which Generation Xerox applies instead.
- Light 'em Up: The tome he'll always start with is the Light tome.
- Mismatched Eyes: It's a little hard to tell, but one of his eye's sprites looks brown while the other is green.
- Nice Guy: Particularly if he's paired with Tine.
- One-Man Army: Has been protecting Manster, alone, for a long time, and done an admirable job of it. It isn't Gameplay and Story Segregation either; Ced is a powerhouse regardless of his parentage. Add in Forseti and he can literally take out entire armies by himself.
- Red Baron: "Ced the Brave." He doesn't much agree with the title.
- The Stoic: Especially in the Nea Fuyuki manga, outbursts of anger to Lewyn aside.
- Teleportation: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, like Lewyn (his father in said adaptation), he can teleport using the wind.
- Tranquil Fury: Played for Laughs in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where an omake has him be as passive-aggressive as possible to Lewyn (his father) in response to Lewyn being, well, not the greatest dad.
- Wise Prince: If Lewyn is his father. Which he canonically is.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair that he inherits from Erinys (and Lewyn, if he's his dad).
Children of Tailtiu
- Awesome, but Impractical: Throughout Fire Emblem with skills, there is some merit with the Vantage-Wrath combo, where the unit will counterattack with a powerful critical hit that'll kill any attackers, thus a valuable high-risk, high-reward tactic. However, the only two units that has the Vantage skill is Lex and Arden, unit that'll make terrible fathers for them due to their nonexistent magic growth, making their magical attack suffer in the long run.
- Critical Status Buff: They both have the Wrath skill inherited from Tailtiu, this allows them to deal critical hit when their HP reaches under half of their maximum.
- Heroic Lineage: The minor-blooded descendants of Thrud, much like their mother.
- Magic Knight: Upon class changing, they get classes that allow the use of swords. Arthur gets the Mage Knight class while Tine gets the Mage Fighter class.
- Orphan's Plot Trinket: They both possess matching pendants from their mother. This is how they manage to reunite with each other.
- Shock and Awe: Due to their Thrud blood, they can use Thunder magic with more efficiency. However, only Tine will comes with a thunder spell and, ironically, cannot use Thoron due to having a lower rank (Mages have C in Thunder Magic compare to Thunder Mage's B without blood factoring in).
- Unskilled, but Strong: In terms of magic. If Tailtiu is paired with an father that favors magic growths, they have good magic growths in the long run, but don't have any noteworthy skills.
- Weak, but Skilled: On the other hand, pairing Tailtiu with Lex or Arden gives them the Wrath-Vantage combo. While certainly not practical as explained above, this will guaranteed that they will always attack first and if their HP is low, then they can perform critical hits like crazy (especially if Tailtiu is paired with Lex, as he passes down Paragon to his children). The fact that they can also wield swords makes it a good idea for them to wield physical weapons in the event a enemy has high resistance stats, due to both Lex and Arden favoring physical stats.
Holy blood:* Thrud [Minor]
The son of Tailtiu, who grew up in Silesse. Managed to escape from the Frieges and learned Wind Magic in spite of his thunder-magic-oriented heritage, and now he's back - with some bones to pick with his own family and the firm intention to get his baby sister back.
- Aloof Ally: Due to his Dark and Troubled Past, Arthur comes off more distant and only making contacts (dialogues) with just whoever he deems necessary: His sister, Seliph (whose army he's joining), Fee (the one who transported him all the way from Silesse to Isaach), and whoever is directly causing his suffering (most of the Friege house)
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Fee, while she's transporting him over the mountains.
- Blow You Away: Since he was separated with his mother in Silesse, Arthur had to fend to himself and learn the native magic over there: Wind. That's why he came with Wind tome despite always having a Thrud blood. If his father is Lewyn... well, it's an extra beginning benefit in addition of wielding Forseti later.
- Big Brother Instinct: Towards Tine, especially if you don't pair either and get a special talk event with them in the final chapter.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, where he's silly outside of a battle but deadly in one. Implied to a degree within the game itself, with Fee noting that he didn't come across as very bright to her.
- Deadpan Snarker: As can be seen here:Fee: What are you doing, Arthur?
Arthur: I'm fighting! What's it look like?! Must be nice to be so carefree.
- Disc-One Nuke: If you pair Tailtiu with Lewyn, he gets Forseti at the beginning of Generation 2.
- Failed a Spot Check: Oddly enough, he fails to recognize his own princess if Fee is Lewyn's daughter. (Granted, it's not like she would have been on TV.)
- It's Personal: To Bloom for what the man did to his family.
- Knight Templar Big Brother: Played for Laughs in the Nea Fuyuki manga, where an omake has him so overprotective of her that he chases anyone who wants to even talk to her.
- Long Lost Sibling: To Tine.
- Momma's Boy: A sympathetic example. Having been separated from Tailtiu when he was a little boy, Arthur has Tailtiu's image on a pedestal and is set on paying back the Friege for her and Tine's suffering.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Fee refers to him as one.
- Tranquil Fury: He might seem to take a cool side when addressing Hilda, but yes, he still wants her dead."Well, I'd rather not have my sister dirty her hands for this. So..."
- Recurring Element: Downplayed, he took after Arlen, being the distant mage who's not very social except to a select few, due to his upbringing.
- Unstoppable Rage: Gets pissed at Bloom for what he did to his sister and mother. Appropriately, he comes with the "Wrath" skill both in this game and in Fire Emblem Awakening. His reaction to Hilda is calmer, but he makes sure to let her know that he wants her dead.
- What Could Have Been: He was to appear in Thracia 776.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: In some pieces of official artwork. She's Got Legs isn't just for girls.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pale lilac thanks to his Thrud lineage.
Holy blood:* Thrud [Minor]
Arthur's little sister and Tailtiu's daughter. She was raised in a very ill-tempered household, thus despite her high magical skills, she's very insecure and shy.
- Apologetic Attacker: As an enemy, if she attacks any of your units. As a playable unit, she'll apologize if she's made to attack Ishtar in Ch. 8 and Bloom in Ch. 7, although she sings a very different tune in Ch. 8 regarding the latter.
- Badass Adorable: She's a powerful mage, and she's also the kind of person you just want to hug.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Oh yes, Tine is one of the sweetest and probably most shy and insecure girls in the 2nd gen. She also happens to have the most venomous battle quotes against people that pissed her off (both Hilda and Bloom). Bet you wouldn't expect that coming from this shy girl, if it wasn't for her harsh environment to grow up thanks to those two.
- Break the Cutie: Was a witness to all the shit Tailtiu went through. And Tailtiu herself went Mama Bear and willingly took even more of Hilda's crap to protect her, even at her lowest. OUCH!
- Character Development: Starts out as a Shrinking Violet. Ends as an assured Silk Hiding Steel with a good dose of Beware the Nice Ones. Part of the Decon-Recon Switch appeal of the game means that Tine was having a reverse of her mother's Character Development, where she started out in a depressing position of character, but eventually developing to be in a much healthier position.
- HeelFace Turn: She's not evil by any means, but her intimidating uncle kicks her onto the battlefield just after Seliph's army kills the two family members who were kindest to her. The player has to move Arthur fast to get her on the right side.
- Generation Xerox: Defied. If paired with Seliph, he'll try to send her away to keep her safe, like Sigurd did for Deirdre, and she tells him she doesn't want to leave his side in case what happens to his parents happens to them. He backs down and apologizes.
- I Miss Mom: Once deployed by Bloom, she expressed her confusion that she had to fight what she thought to be innocent Liberation Army that also killed Ishtore, one of the few people that were nice to her. In the end, she wished Tailtiu was there to advise her...
- Implied Love Interest: While Tine's pairing with Seliph has strong references to Sigurd/Deirdre, the game seemed to favor her pairing with Ced. They have very high romance growth points, he's very nice to her, and if you finish the game several times, one of the opening cutscenes features her being healed by Ced after a battle with Hilda.
- Irony: Let's look at this: Tine grew up being abused to hell and back by Hilda, who coveted the riches of being Queen/Empress of Granvalle by having her daughter Ishtar marry Julius. Tine is also a pre-destined pair with Seliph, having some conversations with him and so can likely attain the position of Granvalle's Empress when Seliph becomes Emperor. Meaning that by pairing her with Seliph, Tine will naturally attain what Hilda coveted but never really achieved. Ha!
- It's Personal: To Hilda and Bloom for what they did to Tailtiu (or in Bloom's case, not doing anything).
- Leitmotif: Aptly named after her too. While it played earlier for Tailtiu, it becomes more meaningful to Tine due to her rather depressing upbringing and the resulting shy personality.
- Let's Get Dangerous!:
- When she faces Hilda head-on.
- Also, when she first faced Bloom in Chapter 7, she was actually apologetic for the betrayal, possibly because he still have Mjolnir and would pound her flat. But once that tome is out of Bloom's hand (Ishtar took it) in the next chapter, Tine stops being apologetic and strikes him down while calling out that he let Tailtiu die when he could prevent it.
- Mega Twintails: These are almost bigger than her head!
- Nice Girl: Even before joining the Liberation Army, Tine is known to sneak from Manster castle and help the innocents willingly when Bloom and the others pretty much act like tyrants to them.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: While Arthur fathered by Lewyn will make him a complete Game-Breaker, Tine will just be overshadowed because she lacks the book that makes Arthur so good, plus the lack of the Follow-up skill makes her follow-up much less reliable. When you already have an all-powerful mage, why use other ones?
- Recurring Element: She took after Linde, being the young talented magician girl who had her beloved family member killed by the bad guys, in particular in front of her. Her replacement is a straight up Expy.
- Shrinking Violet: Thanks in large part to her abusive aunt.
- Silk Hiding Steel: What she grows to be; it's especially notable if she's paired with Seliph, as she firmly puts her foot down and insists on staying with him when he tries to send her away for her own safety during their Endgame lovers convo.
- Unstoppable Rage: Much like Arthur, Tine was just ready to let it rip when facing Hilda, her shameless abuser. And it even seeps into the gameplay since she's on the winning side of the Magic Triangle (Thunder over Fire), so if she's properly trained, yes, Tine can't be stopped by Hilda."I pray that you're watching, mother... Because I'm going to kill Hilda!!"
Children of Brigid
- Heroic Lineage: Descendants of the Ulir lineage, much like their mother. Febail inherits the major blood that allows him to wield Yewfelle.
Holy blood:* Ulir [Minor]
Brigid's daughter, who became a thief to help feed the kids of the Orphanage of Love she and her brother Febail were raised in.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Lester and Coirpre.
- Braids of Action: Keeps her blond hair in a long braid.
- Break the Cutie: Much like Fee, she does not take it well if her husband dies. The epilogue has her asking Seliph for a hug after admitting she doesn't know where to go from there.
- Ditzy Genius: Ditzy enough to try to eat lunch with her husband on a battlefield, genius enough to steal the Balmung right out from the Loptousians' noses.
- Fangirl: Of Shannan, whom she's admired for quite a while. In fact, when he catches her stealing the Balmung and reveals his identity to her, she starts fangirling him right there and he has to remind her that she's got his sword.
- Fragile Speedster: Being a thief, she has high speeds but her strength and defense can be lacking.
- Genki Girl: Every piece of official art depicts her with a big grin; given the faces on the other characters (including her brother's) she rather stands out.
- Gold Digger: Portrayed as this in the Nea Fuyuki manga. She comically fails at this, and ultimately can't help but fall in love and hook up with the poor-as-a-church-mouse Lester.
- Hidden Depths: She's actually quite responsible, and chews her brother out for siding with Bloom for money.
- Just Like Robin Hood: When Seliph balks at accepting her stolen funds, she points out that the Imperials are far worse plunderers.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired up with Edain's son, Lester. Technically BrotherSister Incest too, since their mothers were identical twins.
- Magikarp Power: As a thief, her attack power is low until she promotes.
- MayDecember Romance: If paired with the quite older Shannan.
- Nice Hat: Such a cute and HUGE one.
- Older Than They Look: A conversation with Coirpre in Chapter 9 suggests this.Patty: You said I look like a CHILD?!
- Parental Substitute: Sorta. She was raised in an orphanage, and became a thief to help feed the kids there. Think of a Cool Big Sis with a part-time job, only said job is theft.
- Really Royalty Reveal: She and Febail had no idea their mother was nobility.
- Supreme Chef: Shown as this in all of her Epilogue love talks. The various 4-Koma manga tend to go the other way for Rule of Funny purposes.
- Through His Stomach: Her cooking features in all her late game love talks.
- Weak, but Skilled: She's not very combat viable unless you give her Lex or Chulainn as a father, but she comes with a Sleep Sword and, as your only thief, has plenty of utility purposes.
Holy blood:* Ulir [Major]
Brigid's son with major Ulir blood and huge archery skills. Was tricked into joining Friege's army, so he has to be brought into the group by Patty.
- Ancestral Weapon: He inherits Yewfelle... unfortunately for the player, who might find it difficult to recruit him while keeping their units alive, seeing as how he starts off as an enemy who stands a very good chance of killing any unit he attacks.
- Apologetic Attacker: If he attacks any of your units as an enemy, he'll apologize as a Punch-Clock Villain. He'll also apologize to Bloom if you recruit him and make him turn on the man, although with a lot more questionable sincerity this time.
- Archer Archetype: The infantry bowman of gen 2.
- Big Brother Instinct: Do not badmouth Patty or Brigid!Yeah, well, I caught a guy making fun of you. He said 'It's no wonder you became a thief with a pirate for a mum'. Of course, I floored the guy for saying that.
- Friend to All Children: A conversation with Lana reveals him to be this, even if he denies it.
- Generation Xerox: If his father was Jamke, then his recruitment where he ends up fighting against Seliph's army against his better judgement mirrors his father when he was recruited into Sigurd's army.
- HeelFace Turn: He starts off being hired by Bloom to deal with the liberation army and has to be recruited by Patty, who calls him out for working for the same empire that was responsible for orphaning several children at the orphanage they grew up in.
- Kissing Cousins: If paired up with Edain's daughter Lana. (Who is also his genetic sister, since their mothers are identical twins.)
- Martial Arts Headband: A blue one.
- My God, What Have I Done?: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he has a moment after shooting Lester, whom he then realizes to be Patty's ally and Love Interest.
- Parental Substitute: Like Patty, he looks after the orphans. This is what leads him to fight for Bloom despite clearly not wanting to.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He starts off as one.
- Really Royalty Reveal: He and Patty didn't know about their mother's noble origins until Lewyn told them.
- Recurring Element: Just like his mother, he's the second generation's 'super archer' wielding a powerful bow like Jeorge (in Febail's case, the Yewfelle).
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: In the Nea Fuyuki manga, he purposely avoids shooting lethally at Fee for this reason (that, and more importantly, he doesn't like mindless killing).
Children of Silvia
- Heroic Lineage: The minor-blood descendant of Bragi, much like their mother.
- Support Party Member: They are merely support units; nothing more, nothing less. Though, while Coirpre can only wields staves as he starts as a basic Priest, if his father is Lewyn, he could wield the powerful Forseti upon class changing.
- Unknown Relative: Neither Lene nor Coirpre recognizes each other as kin in their conversation. Not that it matters because neither of them can pair up with each other like other siblings and, depending on certain pairings, recognized as heirs of another house which should imply their relation. It much more plausible with their replacement, unable to pair with each other notwithstanding.
Holy blood:* Bragi [Minor]
Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi (Japanese, Fire Emblem Heroes), Faye Mata (English, Fire Emblem Heroes)
A beautiful dancer and Ares's companion and friend. She is the lost daughter of Silvia, raised in a convent and away from her brother Coirpre.
- Adapted Out: The way Ares meets Seliph in the Nea Fuyuki manga is different from the game, so Lene doesn't appear in that particular adaptation, though strangely her brother does, if only briefly.
- Anti-Gravity Clothing: Her thick striped scarf is always seen floating.
- Bare Your Midriff: Part (or rather, not) of her dancer's outfit, like her mother.
- Broken Bird: Can be quite cynical compared to the other girls in the army, and is revealed to have serious abandonment and self-esteem issues.
- Curtains Match the Window: Like her mother.
- Depending on the Artist: Her sprite and the Super Tactics Book depicts her wearing pink, while the OCG (see above) shows her wearing purple and the Treasure artwork has her wearing orange. Heroes went with the former.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Depicted barefoot in her official art.
- Fanservice Pack: Her Heroes design significantly upgrades her appearance, making her far more busty and her design accomdates to show off her new look. While she wasn't bad looking originally, just compare her original appearance, to her ''Heroes'' artwork◊.
- Mysterious Protector: If her father is Lewyn, she will tell him that she's always felt someone has been watching over her, and wonder if that protector was her dad. Knowing Lewyn, she very well might be right about that.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In Heroes."Have it your way!"
"Do whatever you please!"
- Rape as Drama: It's ambiguous if it was Attempted Rape or not, but she was certainly attacked in this fashion at Bramsel's hands.
- Rescue Romance: If paired with Ares.
- Sorry That I'm Dying: To Ares, if she's killed.
- Spoony Bard: Just like her mother. She can rejuvenate other fighters and give them another turn, but she isn't really cut out for combat.
- Stripperiffic: Part of her job as a dancer.
- Tell Me About My Father: She asks this to Lewyn in Chapter 10, if he is her and Coirpre's father. He can't say a lot for obvious reasons, but will assure her that her parents love her and will come back for her someday.
- Tsundere: Slightly, to Ares. She likes him, but she hates his job.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Inherited her mother's green hair.
Holy blood:* Bragi [Minor]
Silvia's youngest kid, who was raised by General Hannibal... and used as a hostage by his adoptive father's boss, King Travant.
- Awesome, but Impractical: One way to have Coirpre access to Paragon (aside from buying the Paragon Ring, which is expensive) is by having Lex as his father, but doing so hampers his magic growth, since healing calculations rely on the magic stat to be more effective.
- Deadpan Snarker: Lambasts Patty/Daisy's childish attitude. His response to Patty's quote in Older Than They Look?Coirpre: Yeah, I am.
- Distressed Dude: Is taken hostage as a means of forcing his adoptive father Hannibal into battle.
- Happily Adopted: By Hannibal.
- Late Character Syndrome: Most players deem him not worth the effort and relegate him to spamming Physic from as far away as possible. (Unless his dad is Claud, that is; then he can have the Valkyrie staff and handle healing and reviving, while he leaves the Forseti to Ced or Arthur). It really doesn't help that he has to grind 19 levels before he can begin to do anything other than heal, and that Charlot has Paragon and the Berserk Staff to speed up that process. note
- Magikarp Power: With Azelle or Lewyn as his father, he can become quite a powerful magic unit.
- Not Blood Siblings: Any girl he's paired with will say he's going to be like a cute little brother.
- Vague Age: He's a White Mage who is strongly implied to be no older than 14 in Thracia 776 he gets caught in the Child Hunts (which are against children/pre-teens in the 7-13 age range), yet at the same time he's also born and adopted not too long after the Battle of Belhalla, which would put his age around the age of 16.
- White Mage: He's a healer and joins with an A staff level, meaning he can be given the most powerful staves right from the start.
Replacements for Children
- Adapted Out: They don't appear in the mangas, save for Ceridne and Dalvin who show up in the Oosawa one.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: The substitute characters are often overlooked by many players because the children are much more superior due to inheritance giving them better stats and inventory. While some substitutes can be better than their counterparts like Deimne and Charlot, some like Creidne, and Dalvin has to compete with their counterparts who are considered more superior units.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: All of them are expies of the original children, in one way or another. Especially Amid and Linda, since they have holy blood (minor Thrud) as well.
- You Killed My Father: In story, their mothers and fathers were retainers and/or warriors associated to Sigurd and Co. (or to Eldigan, since Tristan and Jeanne's Disappeared Dad was one of Eldigan's Cross Knights); they were killed off either during the war or shortly thereafter, so their kids join the Liberation Army for their sake. For Amid and Linda, their dad was killed off... and their mom was Ethnia, Bloom and Tailtiu's dead little sister, who was abused by Hilda until she died.
Replacements of Edain's children
A civilian girl from Issac who was raised alongside Seliph and trained (presumably by Edain) in staff use. Replaces Lana if Edain didn't have children.
- Badass Normal: On some level. This girl is a completely normal human being, with not a drop of fancy divine blood in her, and she's a field medic, not a fighter, and she'll still march to war to free her homeland and the continent alongside the guy she loves and fight in a conflict between what nearly amounts to demi-gods, especially once the Divine Weapons come out to play. She's still scared out of her mind doing it, mind you, but she'll do it because she loves Seliph that much, confession or no.
- Cowardly Lion: In her secret conversation with Seliph, she admits that while she wanted to help Seliph, she can't help but be afraid of continuing in such a terrible war. Seliph comforts her since he also knows how that feels.
- Hair Color Dissonance: Her various artworks go in and out on whether she has brown or black hair. In-game, it's black.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: She has an affection towards Seliph, but feels that she's not good enough for him since she isn't royalty.
- Implied Love Interest: Muirne is this towards Seliph, she mechanically has the highest odds of pairing with him due to early join time and high base love points as well as her secret event with him at Conote which will vastly increase the affection between the two, if not outright turn them into lovers on the spot should it be triggered.
- Proper Lady: Looks the part well but other parts, not as well.
- Plucky Girl: Just like Lana, Muirne dislikes being on the sidelines. She's a little more shy about it, though.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: She angsts a bit regarding her budding love towards Seliph, due to their total opposite social classes. Logically, if they're paired up, this will be subverted.
- Unkempt Beauty: She's surprisingly nice looking for a girl with unkempt hair and a demure face.
A young archer from Isaach as well as Muirne's brother. Replaces Lester if Edain didn't have children.
- Badass Normal: Despite being a substitute with no Holy Blood, his event with Karen gives him enough Strength to keep him relevant for the majority of the game. Pass him a Brave Bow and he's set to go; some players consider him better than Lester a Holy Blood because of this.
- Break Her Heart to Save Her: He warns Muirne not to get attached to Seliph knowing full well she has a crush on him. Subverted by the fact that it can still happen regardless of this.
- Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair, brown eyes.
- Horse Archer: As to be expected of Lester's Suspiciously Similar Substitute.
- Nice Guy: One of the most soft-spoken guys you'll see in Seliph's army.
- Shrinking Violet: His shyness and inferiority complexes are a constant theme for him.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Looks quite a bit like Roderick from Mystery of the Emblem.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: An old friend of his is at Isaach castle who gives him her pendant as a good luck charm. Due to her being an NPC and Deimne can be paired with any of the female characters, she never gets to let Deimne know of her feelings for him.
Replacements of Ayra's children
A beautiful but skittish swordwoman from Isaach, and Seliph's other female friend. Replaces Larcei if Ayra didn't have children.
- Ascended Extra: She and Dalvin do appear in the Oosawa manga. Her appearance, however, is post-mortem: she died in a Heroic Sacrifice to save Seliph, Lana and Larcei.
- Badass Normal: Even if Creidne simply cannot match Larcei, she isn't completely useless. Her only skill is the VERY sought after Pursuit and she has decent Strength growths, so at least she'll get her share of work more or less done.
- Cool Big Sis: She was one to Seliph, Larcei and Lana in the Oosawa manga. The three (plus Dalvin) still blame themselves for her death.
- Does Not Like Men: Creidne hates men so much due to the Dozelian brutality towards young women that she has two conversations about that. One is when she almost freaks out against Iuchar or Iucharba when one of them stands too close for several turns, another when Dalvin mentions her reasons to not like men.
- Plucky Girl: Very stubborn and resourceful. In the Oosawa manga Seliph recalls that before she sacrificed herself for him, Larcei and Lana, she was smiling brightly and reassuring him.
- Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Part of her distrust of men can be traced to how the Dozelian occupation treats women, putting her on edge with most men outside her group. Unfortunately, in the Oosawa manga, Lana's inner monologue after recalling Creidne's Heroic Sacrifice all but states that Creidne was raped before the Dozelian troops executed her. She also adds that every girl associated with La Résistance is liable to have this happen to her. note
- Tomboy: If not even more so than Larcei: Creidne promotes into a Hero, an almost exclusively-male class (with Machyua of Thracia 776 and Echidna of The Binding Blade as the only other exceptions, until Fire Emblem Awakening opened the Mercenary/Hero line up to females again and introduced the first female character whose starting class is actually "Mercenary".)
- Tsundere: She's a bit rougher around the edges than Larcei.
Creidne's levelheaded older brother, and an Isaachian swordman. Replaces Scáthach if Ayra didn't have children.
- Ascended Extra: He and Creidne show up in the Oosawa manga. The two were members of La Résistance, but Creidne was killed and some time later he was captured and beaten to almost death. Shannan rescued him and took him to safety. But then....
- Badass Normal: Just like his sister he's a powerful unit by substitute standards.
- Butt-Monkey: In his conversation with Tristan he frets about getting stuck with guard duty if he doesn't improve, sorta like Arden.
- Despair Event Horizon: In the Oosawa manga, after Ceridne's Heroic Sacrifice and being the Sole Survivor of his squad, Dalvin simply never was the same.
- The Gadfly: He seems to enjoy getting a rise out of people, as his conversation with Creidne has him teasing her for her crush on Shannan, while his hidden event with Tristan has him lampshading how the latter is starting to fall behind.
- The Generic Guy: Dalvin is comparatively average-looking put next to many of the other characters.
- My Greatest Failure: In the Oosawa manga, he has never been able to forgive himself for the loss of his younger sister. Then it turns out to be worse: he's so broken that he has a FaceHeel Turn since he blames Seliph and Co. for it, which causes him to reveal Seliph's location and causes a whole village near Edain's abbey to be slaughtered.
- Sole Survivor: Of an anti-Dozelian group. All of them were captured, enslaved and tortured; Dalvin was barely alive when Shannan found him.
- Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: Subverted, Dalvin tells that to Seliph as he's captured and almost lynched by Seliph's supporters. While Seliph does execute him, he turns this trope in its head by vowing to make the continent a better place and fight to break the tyranny. The guy's actual Famous Last Words are him asking Seliph if he will truly keep his word (and Seliph promises that he will), and before he tearfully but calmly dies at the end of Seliph's blade, he thinks of his sister's faith in the rebellion.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Has the common Isaachian swordsman build, which makes him this by default.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Tristan. Their secret event even has them training together after a rather playful argument.
Replacements of Lachesis' children
Youngest daughter of the late Cross Knight Eve, raised by Finn after a turbulent early life. Replaces Nanna if Lachesis didn't have children.
- Happily Adopted: Twice. After her father perished, she was taken in by a local merchant (and separated from Tristan at the same time). However, her kind adoptive dad was killed too when she was about 7 years old, and then Finn adopted her and raised her with Leif.
- Pink Is Feminine: Her dress is white and pink.
- Plucky Girl: She doesn't let her early life get to her head.
- White Mage: What a troubadour usually does.
- Women Are Wiser: She doesn't fall for the fake Shannan's deception.
Eldest son of the dead Cross Knight Eve and the brother of Jeanne, raised by Edain. Replaces Diarmuid if Lachesis didn't have children.
- Critical Hit: His only skill until promotion.
- Generation Xerox: He becomes one of Ares' most loyal knights if they both survive to the ending, much like how Eve was this to Eldigan.
- Happily Adopted: To the soon-to-be rebellion in Isaach.
- Long-Lost Relative: Like with Diarmuid, Jeanne had no idea he existed.
- Only Sane Man: To Dalvin's antics.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's practically a match for Diarmuid's dashing prince look through this trope.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Dalvin.
Replacements of Erinys's children
A Sigurd and Erinys fangirl who has just achieved her dream to be a Pegasus Knight. Replaces Fee if Erinys didn't have children.
- Ascended Fangirl: Sorta. While she obviously doesn't get to fight with her idols, Hermina does get to join Sigurd's son in his quests. If you pair her and Seliph up, she can even become Sigurd's daughter-in-law.
- Curtains Match the Window: Green hair and eyes.
- Dead Guy Junior: Not her, but her pegasus mount is named after Annand, a famed knight in Silesse.
- Fangirl: She was an Erinys and Sigurd fan, and became a Pegasus Knight to follow their example.Hawk: So you joined the liberation army, did you?
Hermina: Yep. I wanted to help out Sir Seliph.
Hawk: Hmph... I'm not surprised. You've admired his father ever since you were little.
Hermina: Yeah. My dream has always been to become a Pegasus Knight just like Erinys was. You just watch... I'm gonna make it!
- Fragile Speedster
- Genki Girl: Just like Fee, Hermina Jumped at the Call to join Seliph's army.
- Plucky Girl: Like Fee, she isn't very worried about finding her brother because she's sure she'll run into him eventually.
- Women Are Wiser: She doesn't fall for the fake Shannan's deception.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: As a Suspiciously Similar Substitute of Ced, Hawk also shares his biggest flaw.
- Light 'em Up: Just like Ced, he starts with the Light tome.
- Left Hanging: His motivation to look for his father never gets resolved. Considering that his line is identical to Ced, who has Lewyn as his potential father, it was never going to reach any conclusions.
- One-Man Army: He's Ced's substitute, and depending on the father of Ced he can actually be better than Ced.
Replacements of Tailtiu's children
Holy blood: Thrud [Minor]
A wandering mage from Silesse, who has a grudge against the Frieges due to the death of his mother, Bloom and Tailtiu's younger sister Ethnia. Replaces Arthur if Tailtiu didn't have children.
- Blow You Away: He did grow up in Silesse, after all. Amid's a notable case, as he's the only playable Wind Mage in the game.
- Heroic Lineage: Notable for being one of only two substitute characters to have Holy Blood, the other being his sister Linda (both minor Thrud).
- Magic Knight: He promotes into the male variation of War Mage.
- Master of None: An issue he suffers especially later on. He starts as a Wind Mage, but he has minor Thrud blood, meaning he can't use the higher tier thunder magic until promotion and can only use wind magic, but even once promoted he's overshadowed by Linda and Ced/Hawk who can put any resources you give to him to better use with their better skills and stats.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Naturally, as a Suspiciously Similar Substitute of Arthur.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Even more so than Arthur!
- You Killed My Father: He and Linda pull this on Hilda, on behalf of the deceased Ethnia.
Holy blood: Thrud [Minor]
A sweet mage from the House of Friege, and Amid's little sister. Replaces Tine if Tailtiu didn't have children.
- Black Mage: She's actually a Friege, so this is the family business.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Rather like her meta-namesake, Linda does have footwear, technically, but most art tends to depict it as very strappy, foot-exposing sandals that are also quite good at accentuating her legs. And her combat sprites, like a lot of playable female thunder mages, are very easy to interpret as being completely bare-legged.
- Heroic Lineage: Notable for being one of only two substitute characters to have Holy Blood, the other being her brother Amid (both minor Thrud).
- She's Got Legs: In illustrations, the slits of her white robe show off a very long and shapely pair of legs.
- Shock and Awe: She's a Thunder Mage, and she has minor Thrud blood from her mother.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Linda is sweet and humble, but less shy than Tine. She's also a thunder mage, with raw power almost equalling her aunt Tailtiu's.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: In addition to being Tine's replacement character, she's also somewhat of a substitute of the first and third games' Linde, which is lampshaded by recurring character Jake in a conversation. In addition, just like Tine, she inherits Linde's trait of witnessing her parental figure (mother, in her case) killed by the bad guys.
- You Killed My Father: She and Amid pull this on Hilda, on behalf of the deceased Ethnia.
Replacements of Brigid's children
A civilian girl who has taken up stealing from the rich to help the Orphanage of Love she was raised in. Replaces Patty if Brigid didn't have children.
- Depending on the Artist:
- She is seen wearing pink/magenta in her sprite but is depicted wearing orange in her cut portrait in Thracia 776. Her Treasure artwork depicts her wearing orange but her TCG and Cipher artwork depicts her wearing pink.
- She looks like a bit older than Patty but nonetheless is still a teenager. Her portrait in the Super Tactics Book◊ however has her look much more like an adult woman.
- Fangirl: Of Shannan, just like Patty.Daisy: My personal lesson with Shannan! WHEEEE!
- Fragile Speedster: She can't take many hits.
- Genki Girl: Is an very excited thief who is capable of stealing loads of money from enemy units.
- Hidden Depths: Like Patty, she's more responsible than she seems, and warns Asaello about wasting his arena money.
- Womanchild: She looks older than Patty, but she acts very childish sometimes.
A talented and well-known archer known as the Hitman of Conote, and Daisy's brother. Replaces Febail if Brigid didn't have children.
- Badass Normal: There's a reason people fear him, he may lack holy blood but he makes up for it with his excellent marksmanship.
- Eyes Always Shut: Zigzagged, his official artwork and unused portrait in Thracia has his eyes closed, but his in-game portrait and trading card artwork have them open.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With Seliph. He hates all royalty and nobles with a passion after his and Daisy's parents were killed, caught under two fires during the Thracia-Manster wars, but still, on his own admission in the ending, came to like him.
- Friend to All Children: Adults dislike and fear him thanks to his reputation as an assassin, but children love him. And he loves them back, doing his hardest to make money with mercenary work for the orphanage he holds with his sister Daisy.
- Hitman with a Heart: He's an assassin who terrifies people with his very presence, yet seeing people run away from him in fear makes him contemplative and melancholy.
- I Just Want to Be Special: In the last chapter, if he's paired with Muirne, he will have a conversation with her where he'll tell her how frustrated he is at being powerless in this battle, and wishes he could have just a little Crusader blood in him.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: This is done powerfully through the Sliding Scale of Gameplay and Story Integration. Asaello is a competent enough assassin to have earned himself a Red Baron nickname. Yet his stats, while decent, pale in comparison to most of your other units by the time you get him, especially when compared to the Holy Blood characters in your army. Even the child he replaces, Febail, at least gets the Yewfelle bow; Asaello gets nothing. This directly ties into his character arc, in which he wrestles with his lack of Holy Blood and his part to play in the war as a commoner.
- Red Baron: "Hitman of Conote".
Replacements of Silvia's children
A beautiful and sorta cynical dancer who works with Ares. Replaces Lene if Silvia didn't have children.
- Bare Your Midriff: Again, part (or rather, not) of her dancer's outfit.
- Broken Bird: Suffers from the same thing as Lene.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Like most dancers.
- Glass Cannon: Her Strength growth is surprisingly great for a Dancer, but her Defense and Resistance are terrible in return (though she can make it up for the latter by having the Barrier Sword equipped)
- Long-Lost Relative: To Charlot, and unlike Lene and Coirpre, they never find out that they're related.
- Rape as Drama: Since she takes Lene's role in the story, she's the one who Bramsel attacks.
- Spoony Bard: She's not really suited for combat, but she can give units an extra turn.
- Support Party Member: She is a dancer so she could refresh allies to move again and she comes with Charm, a skill that boost allies' hit and avoid when she's near them.
- Stripperiffic: Again, like most dancers.
- The Tease: Is somewhat more seductive and straightforward than Lene.
The adopted son of General Hannibal, and Laylea's brother — though they don't know it. Replaces Coirpre if Silvia didn't have children.
- Boring, but Practical: His only skill is Paragon, but since he joins your army at level 1, it allows him to level up faster and catch up much quicker.
- Child Mage: Being Coirpre's substitute, he's also a preteen boy.
- Deadpan Snarker: His conversation with Patty/Daisy has him mercilessly lambasting her for her Womanchild attitude.
- Distressed Dude: Is held hostage in order to force Hannibal to fight against Seliph.
- Fan Nickname: "Fat Shota Sigurd"
- Late Character Syndrome: He joins as a level 1 priest at chapter 9, but he has the Paragon skill to quickly compensate this.
- Long-Lost Relative: To Laylea, and unlike Lene and Coirpre, they never find out that they're related.
- Magikarp Power: His stats are roughly similar to Coirpre's, if not slightly inferior, but due to the Paragon skill he levels up much faster. The fact that having him is the only way to get the Berserk Staff doesn't hurt that reputation.
- White Mage: Like Coirpre, he starts out as a healer.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Somewhat resembles a younger Sigurd with his blue hair.
