Greil Mercenaries | PoR Beorc Allies | PoR Laguz Allies | PoR Antagonists | RD Protagonists | RD Major Antagonists | RD Minor Antagonists | NPCs
A band of travelling merchants whom Ilyana is part of, and the Greil Mercenaries bump into as both parties flee Crimea. They hook up and supply the mercs with all sorts of goods and handy services for the duration. Three years later, they're stuck in Daein during the occupation, and end up helping the Dawn Brigade in the same manner. When that conflict ends, they go to work for Ike and co. again in the Laguz Alliance.
The convoy's armorer. Sells an ever-expanding stock of weapons of every type.
- Arms Dealer: Acts as an armorer for the convoy.
A charming lass who runs a goods shop which typically stocks healing items and staves. In Radiant Dawn, this expands to a "Bargain" (term used loosely) rack with different rare items and weapons every chapter. Is hopelessly infatuated with Ike, much to his annoyance.
- Abhorrent Admirer:Ike: (to Soren) Look, whenever that woman corners me, it takes forever to get away. Let me hide in here until things simmer down.
- Hopeless Suitor: Her... odd obsession with Ike withstanding, she's actually a pleasant and courteous woman; not to mention rather good-looking. Too bad for her, Ike doesn't feel the same as she does.
Daniel & Jorge
Twin brothers, Daniel in red and Jorge in green. The former is a blacksmith who can forge custom weapons for you, the latter an antiques dealer (read: buys your unwanted items from you). Jorge, in turn, gives the scrap weapons to Daniel to be smelted into more forged weapons.
- Call-Back: Jorge's Grand Hero Battle map in Heroes has him fight alongside allies. However, said allies are all haphazardly built (both Jorge and a foe having Bond and Oath skills that grant them more stats but only when they're next to another unit which either isn't close to, a Bowknight with Spendthrift Bow+ with an area-of-effect Special which they will NEVER trigger due to Spendthrift's Special cooldown penalty making it outright impossible to trigger elemental Specials, a Firesweep Sword+ flier who has Iote's Shield which doesn't go well with their kit, a staff unit with high Atk but doesn't have Wrathful Staff to help them hit hard, and the ninja with The Cleaner+ and a Ruse skill they will never exploit because the debuffs don't last long enough for them to exploit and said debuffs don't help their weapon deal more damage since it punishes buffs). The whole questionable setup isn't weird because Jorge (and Daniel) is bad at strategy games.
- The Cameo: While Daniel isn't directly controllable in Heroes, he does pop up in Jorge's special artwork and he is credited as the one who made the personal bow Jorge is using.
- Chekhov's Gunman: On a couple of occasions in Path of Radiance, one of the two pesters Ike for military strategy tips, to help them beat their brother at some pen-and-paper war game they're playing. Those tips just so happen to come in handy for you in the next chapter.
- Promoted to Playable: Jorge makes his playable debut in Heroes.
- You Require More Vespene Gas: Weapon forging in Radiant Dawn had a new wrinkle attached: in addition to gold, you required 50 Forge Points (accumulated by selling off stuff to Jorge) for every weapon made. Key word being "had"; this was mysteriously removed from the international versions of the game, which left nothing stopping you from forging as many weapons as you could afford (besides common sense). Dialogue was still translated and left in about the now nonexistent Forge Points, though this might suggest that they were cut at the eleventh hour.
NPCs and Backstory Characters
Warning: MORE MASSIVE SPOILERS.
A Daein priest running the Palmeni Temple who was taken hostage by Schaeffer and his mercenaries.
- Human Shield: An unwilling one by Schaeffer.
- Martial Pacifist: He is still equipped with Light magic when he is in the map. This can be unfortunate as your unit can still retaliate against his attack so care should be made when being near his range.
- Sheathe Your Sword: You have to save him and the other priests by not attacking him and only attacking Schaeffer and his troops. Sparing every priest in the map will give you the Ashera Staff, the most powerful staff in the game.
A veteran general of Begnion who leads the Central Army. He is an ally of Ike's in the Mad King's War, and a formidable foe in the Laguz-Begnion war. He harbors a couple of unsavory secrets.
- Anti-Villain: He's fighting for the corrupt Begnion senate, but he's an honorable general, best shown when he agrees to withdraw after Elincia flies into the middle of a warzone to beg everyone to stop fighting on Crimean soil. And when Sanaki escapes the senate's clutches, he sides with her in a heartbeat.
- Berserk Button: Do not insult Sephiran if you value your life.
- BFS: His artwork shows he wields a greatsword nearly as tall as he is.
- Cherry Tapping: Easily beats Ranulf and Skrimir with nothing but an Iron Sword. Might be a case of Gameplay and Story Segregation since his sword in his artwork and the pre-rendered cutscenes looks very different.
- Everyone Has Standards: Expresses disgust when Valtome sics his troops on a defenseless Elincia, and deserts him in response.
- Fighting Fingerprint: His combat animations when fighting Ranulf and Skrimir are identical to the Black Knight's.
- Half-Human Hybrid: He's a Branded. His physical characteristics and unusually high speed for a General suggest he might have raven ancestry.
- I Have Your Wife: Forced to obey the Begnion Senate's orders after they capture Sephiran and Sanaki.
- Neck Lift: Inflicts this on Valtome after he insults Sephiran.
- Playing Both Sides: He's both a general of Begnion and the Black Knight of Daein, helping escalate the war between the two nations in accordance with Sephiran's plans.
- Supporting Leader: In Path of Radiance, he shows up with reinforcements to watch Ike's rear as he fights the final battle with Ashnard.
- Think Nothing of It: He downplays helping out Ike and co. at the end of Path of Radiance, saying he was Just Following Orders.
- Undying Loyalty: To Sephiran, who took him in after learning about his Laguz heritage.
- The Worf Effect: On the inflicting end in Radiant Dawn, casually wasting Skrimir in a cutscene battle.
The consort of King Ashnard and queen dowager of Daein in Radiant Dawn. Revealed to be the daughter of King Dheginsea of Goldoa and the sister of Rajaion and Kurthnaga. Although she is a dragon laguz, the birth of her branded child has left her unable to transform into a dragon, and so she passes herself off as a beorc woman.
- Blood Knight: Implied to have been in the past. She left Goldoa because she disagreed with her father's policy of strict military neutrality, and she had an attraction to Ashnard until she got pregnant from him.
- Broken Bird: Her life was extremely depressing. She left Goldoa because she objected to her father's isolationism and became Ashnard's mistress until she became pregnant and lost her shapeshifting. Afterward, Ashnard abandoned her and their son when he learned that both are completely useless to his plan, but not before using her son as a hostage to lure Rajaion. She was totally in grief that when Izuka showed her Pelleas, she immediately consider him her son when he's not because it was a total crutch to her sanity. If Pelleas dies, she completely lose her mind and lash at Micaiah for "killing" her son.
- Deliver Us from Evil: Either the conception or the birth of her son (depending on whom you ask) robbed her of her shapeshifting ability, meaning that she couldn't be the Blood Knight that she used to be. Twenty-odd years later, she is much more interested in doting on her son than fighting.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: She was willing to sacrifice the entire kingdom of Daein to save her beloved Pelleas.
- Love Makes You Crazy: In the expanded script, if Pelleas dies and his mark is transferred to Micaiah, she contemplated killing Micaiah to break the Blood Pact even though it wouldn't work because she was completely in grief and madness from his death.
- Love Ruins the Realm: Her affair with Ashnard resulted in Rajaion, Ena, and ten other red dragons leaving Goldoa and violating its strict military neutrality, which nearly resulted in Yune being awakened in Path of Radiance. Possibly subverted in that her son, who obviously wouldn't have been born otherwise, was directly involved in preventing the "dark god's" awakening.
- Mum Looks Like a Sister: While she appears to be a beorc woman in her mid-thirties (if that) and is alleged to be the mother of Pelleas, a beorc man in his early twenties, she is, in fact, neither. Played with later. While she isn't Pelleas' mother, she does have a son in his early twenties. However, she's also Really 700 Years Old.
- My Beloved Smother: She is always overprotective of Pelleas. It's a lot sadder than most examples, as she has completely lost herself and that the only thing that keeps her from going insane from grief is Pelleas. If Pelleas is alive, he had enough of her clingy care when he begins suspecting that he wasn't her son to begin with.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Almedha carries a great deal of guilt over what happened to Rajaion, because it was her departure from Goldoa that ultimately caused it.
- Parents Know Their Children: Knows Soren is her son after their first interaction despite not seeing him since his birth.
- Poor Communication Kills: It is possible for her to be responsible for the death of Pelleas because she refuses to elaborate more about the Blood Pact, out of fear that Micaiah might murder Pelleas. This leads to Pelleas wrongly concluding that killing himself would break the curse.
- Really 700 Years Old: Due to her being a Dragon Laguz, and a black dragon no less. Her exact age is never specified, but given that she's the older sister of Kurthnaga, who himself is just over a century old, she's probably a few centuries old at a minimum.
- Unholy Matrimony: With Ashnard (seeing as she was his former concubine), albeit one-sided. She was attracted to Ashnard, but outside of bearing his child, he felt nothing for her or their child (especially when he discovered that his half-Dragon Branded of a son possessed no special powers to exploit) and used them to lure Rajaion to Daein.
- Unperson: Her father, Dheginsea, made sure she never existed to hide the truth that she lost her powers as a result of becoming pregnant with a Branded child.
- Widow's Weeds: As Ashnard's widow and former concubine, she wears black as well as a veil. She is also a tragic person as she wish to see her son again, which can be taken away from her if Pelleas sacrifices himself.
The firstborn son of King Dheginsea, brother to Almedha and Kurthnaga. He left Goldoa to look for Almedha after she gave birth to her son, and so he came upon a Fate Worse than Death.
- Ascended Fridge Horror: Remember when people wondered whether the wyverns used for mounts in past games were actually enslaved dragons? Poor Rajaion plays the original theory for all the horror it deserves.
- Big Brother Instinct: He attempted to save his sister from her crazy lover, and spent almost twenty years suffering for it.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Due to the feral drug.
- Dub-Induced Plot Hole: A very minor one his translated death scene was worded slightly ambiguously, not making it quite as clear that he had in fact died and suggesting that he may be still alive and accompanying Ena back to Goldoa. This was rectified with Radiant Dawn specifically mentioning his dead status.
- Dying as Yourself: Thanks to Reyson and Leanne, he transformed into his humanoid form just in time to...
- I'm a Humanitarian: Implied; Ashnard threatened to feed incompetent generals to Rajaion.
- Papa Wolf: Or Uncle Wolf in this case. Rajaion cared just as strongly about saving his nephew as he did about his sister.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted; his eyes glow yellow when he is drugged and insane, and return to their natural red color after he is cured.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: In Path of Radiance, Rajaion had the same eye color and mark on his forehead as Kurthnaga, although they were not confirmed to be brothers until Radiant Dawn. His portrait in Radiant Dawn, which is how he looked before he was drugged, looks like an older version of his nephew Soren.
Callil and Largo's adopted daughter.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Has a brand somewhere on her body.
A priestess from Palmeni Temple near Nevassa, the capital of Daein, and wife of General Gawain. After Ashnard brought Lillia and the Fire Emblem to the temple, Elena gained Lillia's trust and learned of the Galdr of Release. After Lillia's death, Elena took the Fire Emblem and the song and, accompanied by Gawain, fled to Gallia, where she gave birth to Ike and Mist. But King Ashnard sent dozens of his best soldiers to hunt down the renegade general and the Fire Emblem, and Greil only fought them off while under the chaotic influence of Yune. Seeing that her husband had gone insane, Elena ran up to him and snatched the medallion from his hand, though not before he ran her through with his sword.
The king of the Heron tribe and the father of Rafiel, Lilia, Reyson, Leanne, an unnamed son, and two unnamed daughters. He is one of the few survivors of the Serenes Massacre but became terribly ill and is bedridden and under the protection of Tibarn and Phoenicis.
- Despair Event Horizon: The death of his kinsman and his country affected him so terribly that he became almost permanently bedridden. He got better when Rafiel performed a ceremony in the Serenes Forest.
- The Ghost: He never appears in both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, what's with being bedridden for the entire game and such. He has concept art (the artwork you are seeing) that shows him what he looks like.
- Outliving One's Offspring: Lorezieh had seven children. His middle son and his oldest two daughters died in the Serenes Massacre, while his second youngest daughter died due to related events. For twenty years he believed that his youngest son was the only other living Heron, and only recently learned that his oldest son and youngest daughter had also survived.
- Interspecies Romance: At least, down the line that would lead to Stefan. Whether he had a Beorc wife in his lifetime or one of his later descendants had a relationship with a Beorc is unknown.
- Famous Ancestor: To Stefan. It's more obvious in the Japanese version as he was named Soanvalke.
- Great White Feline: A Lion Laguz with pure white fur, said to be the greatest of all the Beast Laguz.
- King of Beasts: He is a Lion Laguz and the most powerful of the Beast tribes. He is also the second ruler of Begnion after Altina (the English version mistranslated it as the 2nd ruler of the Beast Tribe, which chronologically, Gallia didn't exist at the time).
- Out of Focus: Unlike the rest of the Three Heroes, he serves no role in the narrative and is there mainly to fulfill the quota for a beast tribe member among their number.
- Riddle for the Ages
- How did his blood get mixed into the Beorc population?
- What did he look like in his unshifted form?
- Secret-Keeper: He was one of the very few people to know the truth about Lehran and Altina's child.
One of the Ashera's Three Heroes that defeated the dark god and the only one to both be a woman and a Beorc. She was the original wielder of Ragnell and Alondite, twin swords that were blessed by Ashera. She was the first ruler of the Begnion Empire and the ancestor of Empress Sanaki and Micaiah.
- Action Girl: The sole woman and Beorc of the Three Heroes but is one of the strongest swordswoman in the past.
- Amazonian Beauty: She has a pretty face, a large bust, and long, flowing hair. Her original (albeit blurry) flashback art shows she has well-defined abs as well. When appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes, her art is clear enough and her top tight enough to show that she actually has a six-pack under her clothes - something that backs up her ability to dual wield the massive longswords Ragnell and Alondite.
- Ascended Extra: She goes from a Precursor Heroine who is long, long dead in Ike's era to a playable character in Heroes.
- Boobs of Steel: Is very well-endowed (albeit covered up), and was the greatest sword user alive in her era, male or female. She also dual-wields Ragnell and Alondite, which in modern times are individually wielded by Ike and the Black Knight, two of the three strongest warriors alive.
- Cuddle Bug: In a special video for her Christmas version in Heroes she's surprisingly affectionate to Sanaki and holds her like a mother would.
- Dual Wielding: She did this with Ragnell and Alondite.
- Famous Ancestor: To the Begnion imperial family.
- Founder of the Kingdom: She was the first ruler of Begnion.
- Heroines Prefer Swords: And she sure did with both Ragnell and Alondite in hand.
- Interspecies Romance: Altina and Lehran were not the first Beorc and Laguz to become romantically involved, but the were the first such couple to have a child, the very first Branded. Sadly, the birth of their child caused Lehran to lose his Laguz powers. Fearing that a new race war would be caused by the Laguz panicking over being absorbed by the Beorc entirely, Altina and Lehran separated and their child's birth was covered up. She later took an unidentified Beorc man as her second husband, and presented him as the father of her child.
- Mighty Glacier: In Heroes, she has high Atk, great Res, and good HP and Def, but abysmal Spd, with Ragnell and Alondite dropping it further. However, she's able to strike twice consecutively on either phase, which helps make up for her lack of Spd.
- One-Handed Zweihänder: She was strong enough to wield the huge swords Ragnell and Alondite with one hand each.
- Power Floats: In Heroes, she floats in the air as a sign of her sheer power.
- Precursor Heroes: She is one of the ancient Three Heroes who fought to seal Yune.
- Promoted to Playable: Becomes playable in Fire Emblem Heroes as a Mythic Hero.
- Secret Art: She's the only character in Heroes to learn the Twin Blades Special, which boosts damage based off of the user's Res, and it also negates any skill that mitigates damage taken, such as Close Call or Brave Ike's Urvan.
- The Smurfette Principle: The sole female of Ashera's chosen champions.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Altina looks like a fully-grown version of her descendant, Sanaki. She even mentions it in their Christmas variant for Heroes.
- Token Human: She is the only Beorc among the Three Heroes as Soan, Lehran, and Dheginsea represent each type of Laguz.
Apostle Sanaki's grandmother and direct predecessor who signed the Laguz Emancipation Act. She was more beloved by her people than any apostle before or after her. Rumors that her assassination was orchestrated by the heron tribe resulted in the Serenes Massacre. It's later explained that after meeting with her ancestor, Lehran, Misaha decided to publicly reveal Begnion's greatest secret: that she, her predecessors, and her young heir were in fact Branded. The Imperial Senate, led by Lekain, ordered her assassination for fear of what would happen to their power and credibility if that knowledge became public.
- 100% Adoration Rating: Among the common citizenry by all accounts. They loved her so much that after being assassinated, a rumor was all they needed to commit genocide in her name.
- Birthmark of Destiny: The exact same one that appeared on her firstborn granddaughter.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Turns out the dark secret of the Begnion royal line is that they're all Heron Branded. The Senate had her killed when she tried to go public with this knowledge.
- High Priest: As the only person on Tellius who can speak directly to Ashera, Misaha was both Ashera's high priestess and the secular ruler of Begnion.
- The Faceless: Except for her right hand, showing her Heron brand, we never see what Misaha looked like.
- Mum Looks Like a Sister: Grandmum looks like a sister in this case. As a Heron-Branded, Misaha would have looked much younger than she actually was, and would have still looked like a young woman when her first granddaughter was born.
- Older Than They Look: What is known about Branded aging makes it clear that she was this in life.
- Posthumous Character: She's long dead by the time Path of Radiance starts, and the circumstances of her demise cause a lot of the problems in the backstory and in Radiant Dawn.
- Royalty Superpower: As the direct descendant of Altina, Misaha possessed the power to see the future and speak with Ashera. Misaha's attempt to reveal that her abilities are also Hybrid Power ended in catastrophe.
- Slave Liberation: She officially freed all of the Laguz slaves in Begnion.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Misaha underestimated the Senate when she attempted to reveal her Brand to the world, and that allowed them to frame the Herons for her murder.
The goddess of chaos, and the "dark goddess" sealed inside Lehran's Medallion. Ashera's other half. Talks to Micaiah through a bird (also named Yune) while sealed in the medallion, and talks to everyone through Micaiah's body after being unsealed.
- Above Good and Evil: Claims that she and Ashera are both this. Ironically, she's benevolent, sensitive and fully admits that gods are flawed (in contrast to Ashera's Tautological Templar tendencies). Yune explains that she governs Chaos in all of its forms, including positive aspects such as growth, and negative aspects such as anarchy. Good and evil are simply not part of the equation.
- All Myths Are True: Subverted. Yes, there is a god of chaos contained in the medallion, but she is not a dark god - that was a lie to keep people away from the medallion because of her Power Incontinence. Yune is otherwise kind and loves humans; had Ashnard unsealed her with the intent to devastate the world, her first act would more likely be to devastate him.
- All There in the Manual: Yune's human form never makes a proper appearance in Radiant Dawn's story, not even having a gameplay portrait — she's only briefly seen as blue fire mimicking a human appearance in the ending. Her true appearance is only shown in the extra character portraits.
- Badass Adorable: Her form is that of a small child, but she's a full-blown goddess of chaos.
- Berserk Button: Being called a dark goddess.
- Big Good: She is the one guiding the party towards the final battle in Part 4.
- But Now I Must Go: Averted. After Ashera's defeat (and reabsorbing her), she says she has to leave as gods have failed humanity and made them weak... But Ike encourages not to as although humans don't have much use for gods, they show humans what to aspire to and give humans a reason to grow. When she asks Ike if she can be forgiven for the pain she has caused, Ike answers that as she has already forgiven humans, why couldn't they do the same- Which finally convinces her to try again (as the goddess Ashunera).
- Call a Human a "Meatbag": Not having a corporeal form herself, she has a habit of addressing people this way.
- Chaos Is Evil:
- Subverted. When everything goes tits up at the end of Part 3, she's the one aiding humanity.
- Heavily Discussed when Yune admits that she could have been the dark god everyone feared. She explains that both order and chaos are morally neutral, with both positive and negative aspects. Yune avoided succumbing to the negative aspects of chaos because she spent her imprisonment surrounded by the songs of the heron clan, then later by Elena and Mist, preserving her connection to humanity. Ashera by contrast spent her sleep in complete isolation, causing her to forget her connection to humanity and succumbing to the negative aspects of order.
- Curtains Match the Window: Red eyes and red hair.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite her title of being called the "Dark God", Yune is actually a benevolent goddess who cares about humanity. This is reflected in Heroes, where Yune is a Mythic Hero of Dark, and the first Dark Mythic Hero to be released.
- Didn't See That Coming: Like her counterpart, Yune was unaware that the Branded could even exist. She initially thought that Micaiah was completely unique, only to be taken by surprise when she encountered others in the army. Yune thinks their existence is a wonderful development, as it shows mankind's capacity to grow and change without the influence of the gods, growth and change both being positive aspects of Chaos.
- Dropping the Bombshell: It changes very little in the context of the game, but she drops an absolutely brutal one to Stefan during a base conversation in the Endgame that drives him to briefly Go Mad from the Revelation.Stefan: Its said that a union between laguz and beorc is a crime against the goddess. Thats what weve always been told.
Yune: Thats silly. Ive never heard anything of the sort.
- Elemental Shapeshifter: Her true form is that blue fire that comes from the medallion. Ashera having a corporeal body implies that Yune could create one of her own if she weren't weak from being unsealed.
- Genki Girl: Comes with the territory, although she's more subdued than you'd expect for a goddess of chaos.
- God Is Flawed: Declares all gods as this, including herself:Sanaki: I don't understand. How can you be a goddess and not know? I thought gods were perfect beings who knew everything!.
Yune: Gods? Perfect? Where did you get that idea? You haven't met a lot of gods, have you?
Sanaki: Well, no. But divinity created life from nothing! Surely only perfect beings could do that!
Yune: We did create life, and can do many things that you creatures of flesh can't. But that doesn't make us perfect. It just means we can make mistakes on a much grander scale... We're not what you've been taught, and we're much closer to you skin-wearers than some will admit. But we do make mistakes... Sometimes we make terrible mistakes. Sometimes all it takes is one emotional outburst and the entire world is drowning underwater!
- God of Chaos: Her title says it all. However, Yune is a rare heroic example of this trope, embodying the positive aspects of chaos and change. Yune acknowledges that she has the potential to become an evil goddess of anarchy and destruction, but avoided that path by preserving her connection to humanity.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: A peculiar example; the reason the "Dark God" legend was created was done in order to prevent judgment day from coming to pass-the Three Heroes spread legends of the 'dark god' contained within the Fire Emblem to discourage warfare (as Ashera decided that she and Yune would enter a deep slumber for one thousand years, and if upon awakening the beorc and laguz there was to be no fighting and they maintained a prosperous peace throughout this time, the two would reunite into Ashunera; however, if they failed to do so, she would rain divine retribution for the people's sins upon them). Unfortunately, it failed.
- Immortal Immaturity: Played with, as she is Ashunera's emotions - which led to her causing a great flood, so Ashera has a point in considering her this, which is why she's been sealed away for so long. She was apparently like this before being sealed in the medallion, though as Ashera was the one that wanted to destroy her to "purify" herself until Lehran convinced her to simply seal her, probably Ashera was simply paranoid. Ironically this works out to Yune's favor as her immaturity allows her to better empathize with people, whereas Ashera coldly decides that people are imperfections that need to be erased.
- Irony: Despite hating being called a dark goddess, she ends up as a Dark-element Mythic in Heroes.
- Little Miss Snarker: Her default form (if she had a body) is quite small, but her sass is quite large.
- The McCoy: Obviously, being the embodiment of Ashunera's emotions. Which turns out to be a good thing as it allows her to empathize with humans, contrasting the emotionless Ashera who sees them as nothing but imperfections.
- Ms. Exposition: Throughout Part 4, especially during the endgame.
- Pieces of God: She is one half of Ashunera, the creator goddess of Tellius. When Ashunera discarded her emotions, it became the goddess known as Yune.
- Power Floats: In Heroes, Yune is one of the few flying units who doesn't have a mount, floating under her own power.
- Power Incontinence: Even while contained in the medallion, she can't control her power very well. This is why most people who hold the medallion go mad, rather than the "dark" god "corrupting" people like everyone thinks.
- Promoted to Playable: Makes her playable debut in Heroes, following the trend of "Mythic" Heroes being mythical figures. She is classed as a Green Flier that inflicts stat debuffs in a wide area.
- Really 700 Years Old: Still looks like a kid, even though she's thousands of years old. More notably, she looks considerably younger than Ashera, her other half.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Played with, she's nice enough but she also states at length how it wouldn't take her much effort to bury the cast if she really wanted to.
- Redhead In Green: Her only in-game appearance in her original form is as a ghostly spirit, but her official art shows her as this.
- Red Herring: Path of Radiance and most of Radiant Dawn set her up as the standard Medeus archetype. Then she comes out of the medallion, and she turns out to be benevolent and even personable, while it's her Order Is Not Good other half Ashera that fills the villain role.
- Resurrection Sickness: The main reason that God's Hands Are Tied and Yune doesn't take a more active role is that she is weak from her unsealing. She is unable to do much more than give the main characters their class promotions and bless weapons, both of which tire her out. It's also implied this is why she doesn't manifest a physical body beyond the little bird and has to speak through Micaiah.
- Secret Art: She's the only character in Heroes to learn Chaos Named, which inflicts a debuff to foes within three columns of her if her Res is greater than theirs by at least 3, debuffing their highest stat by -5. note
- Split-Personality Merge: Sort of. After Ashera is struck down, she absorbs her, which leads to the restoration of Ashunera as God Is Good once again.
- Vocal Dissonance: Despite appearing as a small child, she has an adult-like voice in the English version of Heroes. This makes sense considering that she is the Goddess of Chaos.
- Walking Spoiler: She's the Goddess of Chaos and is sealed in Lehran's Medallion. Anything more about her role in the story spoils the big plot twist at the end of Part 4.
The goddess that created the world and life that lives in it. She was worshiped by the Zunanma, the ancestors of the Beorc and Laguz, revering her as the Goddess of Dawn for the color of her hair. When their descendants begin fighting each other, she tried to stop the conflict, inadvertently starting the Great Flood that washed away the world save the continent Tellius. She split herself into two separate form: Ashera and Yune.
- Didn't See That Coming: The Zunanma were the only life forms on Tellius that evolved on their own rather than be created by Ashunera. This made her, as well as both Ashera and Yune, unable to predict the actions of both Beorc and Laguz, and the very existence of the Branded was completely unknown to them.
- The Maker: Played With. She created the water and the world and the life that comes from it, but she never directly created the Zunanma, the ancestral species that evolved to the Beorc and Laguz. It was said that the Zunanma were created through evolution, not from the god's intervention.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: When the Zunanma evolved into the separate races and then started fighting each other over their differences, she attempted to reconcile them by giving them the names beorc and laguz. All this did was solidify their beliefs that they were too different from each other, leading to more fighting.
- Power Incontinence: She was responsible for the Great Flood that drowned most of the world besides the continent Tellius, by complete accident when she tried to stop the Beorc and Laguz from fighting each other.
- Walking Spoiler: Her existence is corresponded with her two separate entities, which are also Walking Spoiler themselves.
