“And I am Aimee, a vendor of...various goods. I have a wide variety of items for sale. I hope you'll stop by soon.”
—Aimee, introducing herself to Ike in Path of Radiance

Aimee (Larabel in the North American versions of Archanea Series) is a non-playable character first appearing in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and from then on she has become a recurring character in the Fire Emblem series.

She usually appears as the item shopkeeper.


Shadow Dragon and Mystery of the Emblem[]

Aimee runs every single vendor in the game, and serves a rather minor role.

Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn[]

Aimee has a storyline role as a member of the Merchant Convoy, which travels with the Greil Mercenaries.

Alongside Ilyana and Kurthnaga, she appears as an ally unit in Chapter 1-3 of Radiant Dawn.

In Chapter 3-2, she gives the Silver Card to Soren as a temporary gift after he compliments her in hopes of earning a chance to buy items at a lower price.

In Chapter 4-1, she gives Rexcalibur to Ike so that he can give it to Soren, with her excuse being that she is attempting to get Ike's attention.


In the Base Conversations across the Tellius Series, Aimee is shown to be quite sneaky and flirtatious, always trying to find a way to ploy Ike into loving her and she does not try to hide this at all, being very open about it. She's very direct with her love of Ike, frequently making advances on him (sometimes to the point of harassment), with one instance having her outright say it in front of him, but he always rejects her.

Aimee dislikes Soren, seeing him as an obstacle in her pursuit of Ike. She can barely tolerate him, but seems to slightly warm up to him after he tells her about the types of foods that Ike likes so that she can cook for him. She will occasionally give a gift or do a favor for Soren, but rather indirectly, as only after Ike is involved in the situation will Soren either intervene with Aimee and receive it, or Aimee giving a gift through Ike.

“What carelessness on my part! I'm injured. Go on without me. I don't want to be a burden. No, no I insist. I'll get away somehow. Until we meet again!”

  • As she first appeared in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, is a merchant, and having been a recurring character, Aimee has been thought as a counterpart to Anna.
  • In previous American localizations from the Tellius Series that she appeared in she was also named Aimee, her appearing as Larabel could be seen as a translation oversight in Shadow Dragon. When the official translation for Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light came to the Nintendo Switch, they still kept the name Larabel based off from Shadow Dragon's North American translations. It's possible that the teams who worked on official translations for Shadow Dragon and Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light had not realized that Aimee from the Tellius Series and Larabel from the Archanea Series are the same person.
  • While technically the same character, her appearance varies between games somewhat, the most notable difference being that she has black hair in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
  • In Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, the shopkeeper of the accessory shop Carabia appears to be based on Aimee.
