“When I was just a child, she was stolen away by bandits. My father had already passed away, so I was totally...sniff...”
—Amelia talking about her mother in a support conversation with Duessel.

Amelia is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is an orphan from the small Grado village, Silva, and is a young girl who is inexperienced in combat.


Amelia's motivation to join the Grado army stems from her broken childhood, where her village, Silva, was attacked by bandits. Her father was killed in the raid and her mother, Melina, was kidnapped and presumed dead by Amelia. After this event, Amelia vowed to be the greatest soldier Grado will ever behold in order to protect her loved ones.

She first appears in her new residence, Serafew, where one of Eirika's companions or Eirika herself visits her house just as she leaves, finding a Torch that she had dropped in her rush to join the army.

  • Carcino, where she joins a Grado battalion in capturing Eirika. If she is not recruited in Carcino, she later withdraws and reappears in Hamill Canyon as part of Aias' reinforcements.
  • Fort Rigwald, where she objects to Gheb's ranting of a soldier who has doubts about the war. As punishment, Gheb forces her out into the frontlines, hoping for her to die.

At first, she is merely one of Grado's forces fooled by the propaganda declaring the siblings Eirika and Ephraim evil nobles of Renais, but when encountering them or the cavalier Franz, her opinion quickly changes and she defects to their side. She then aids Eirika and Ephraim in their journey.

If Amelia has not obtained any supports, she returns to Grado after the war and helps rebuild the nation after the war. Her endings with Franz and Ross lead her to moving to Renais with her husband. Her ending with Ewan leads her into traveling across Magvel with her husband, while with Duessel she simply travels with him as a friend.


Amelia is a kindhearted and selfless girl with a strong desire to defend those she cares for since the incident in Silva. She is also stubborn and quite hesitant to speak about her past, but concedes to discussing it to people she feels close to, like Franz. This stubbornness often makes it hard for her to let go of an idea once she had it, having decided decisively she wanted to protect her loved ones by joining Grado's army.

A major part of Amelia's desire to become stronger was in part due to the helplessness she felt when Silva was raided by bandits, prompting her wish to train in martial skill to be able to help herself as much as her loved ones. She hates the feeling of uselessness and as such is very eager to prove herself herself to the army. Despite this, her inexperience shows even given her best efforts, such as the Torch she inadvertently left behind in Serafew when making the preparatory trip to Grado's capital. She also, at least initially, shows some degree of naïveté such as having believed Grado's propaganda on villainized accounts of Ephraim and Eirika's military victories.

In addition, Amelia tends to be overtly formal and polite around fellow personnel she doesn't know too well, only tending to get more informal after knowing the person well. She even notes to Franz she's "not used to being so casual", showcasing how much she cares about following protocol. Nonetheless, she still shows several moments of humor, especially when relaxed, such as teasing Ross for his desire to be her "big brother" given her rough childhood.

It is hinted that Amelia has a crush on Franz in her Support Conversations with Neimi. Also, in one such Support Conversation, it is revealed that she likes to cook. In another Support Conversation, it is shown that she had a songbird which she released prior to joining Grado's army.

Amelia is the second recruitable Trainee. Contrary to the standard of Trainee units, Amelia has the standard low base stats and joins in a rather punishing period of the game where she is too low to kill units on her own, making it tedious to level up. Her saving grace is her starting Javelin, which should allow her to be funneled some kills safely. If looking to effectively train her, Revenants, Entombeds, and severely weakened Bonewalkers are her safest options to gain experience.

Amelia's branching options vary in performance, though they both let her use her existing Lance proficiency into her new classes. Her natural Speed and Skill stats blend nicely to the Cavalier classes, but unfortunately, she faces intense competition for the class with five preexisting Cavaliers base units, one of which is Seth, arguably the strongest unit in the game. Given the importance of mobility in Sacred Stones, it is viable to turn her into a Cavalier, though there is nothing unique to her that lets her stand out too much from her Cavalier rivals.

The Knight gives Amelia only one "competitor" for the role with Gilliam, letting her be a slightly more unique take on the Knight role. Gilliam fulfills the Knight archetype in its fullest while Amelia can be considered a slightly more offensive version. She trades a bit of her physical durability and Strength in exchange for her better Speed and Skill, making her less likely to take Follow-Up Attacks, but takes more damage per hit. Thankfully, the General gives her Great Shield to help mitigate some of the incoming damage.

As a Cavalier, Amelia will have intense competition from Franz, Forde, Kyle, Seth and Duessel. The only advantage in this route is that she can enjoy the greater movement provided by cavalry, although she'll suffer immensely forest, mountain and sand tiles like them.

Amelia is statistically the weakest character in the game. She is difficult to bring up to speed with the likely numerous other units who had much more time to train. One of her promotions, the Cavalier, is the most populated class even before she becomes one, leaving her with only the Knight class as the only way to make her more unique. If attempted, considerable time and effort must be specifically funneled into her to bring her to a remotely competent level. It is possible to start this from the moment she is recruited, but funneling resources to her may also inhibit the growth of other characters who may provide much better returns for far less effort and time. Overall, Amelia is a considerable resource and time sink that is not spectacular by any means, but will at least give a decent performance that should not leave much disappointment if not expecting more than a mediocre return.

Base Kit[]

Contrary to her performance in her original game, Amelia debuted in Heroes in Book I as an powerful Axe Armor. Most notably was her emphasis on good offense with 34 Atk and Spd, the latter being notable as she is the fastest Armor unit in Book I. Her mixed bulk is average for an Armor, but both still respectable at 62 physical and 60 magical. Amelia has managed, by virtue of being an Armor, to remain a popular choice for a legacy unit from Book I as she molds well to the growing pool of skills both geared towards Armors specifically and Atk/Spd skills. Amelia is among the few Book I units to have aged well and continuously gets better as more skills become available, helped particularly by her access to a Resplendent Form for some added stats. While she may not be as explosive or oppressive as many future Heroes, Amelia remains a reliable unit.
Upon release, she wielded a Slaying Axe+, which accelerates her special cooldowns, and later received her own personal Grado Poleax, which retains the same effect, but has more might. When refined, if she has a visible buff put on her like a Hone/Fortify skill or Armor March active, she gains +5 Spd/Def during combat, giving her a solid means to push her Spd enough to prevent being doubled by enemies and soak a few more physical hits better. Amelia enjoys allies who can buff her as a result, especially an armor ally, but she is able to self sustain this effect due to a skill in her set.
Sacred Cowl reduces ranged attacks by 30% when activated, which increases her bulkiness, but can ultimately be replaced in favor of an offensive skill. Earth Boost further increases her Def by 6 if she has at least 3 HP more than her opponent. While she is higher than a chunk of units, a handful are immune to this effect and thus it becomes a dead skill, especially against most heavy Armor teams, of whom the most commonly used do not activate the skill. Armor March is her Skill C, which grants Armors an additional space of movement for their turn. While it requires Amelia to be next to at least one Armor ally to activate, the tight formations of most Armor set ups allows it to come into play easily. The additional movement range creates deceptive range and removes the mobility limitations that often plague the unit type and as an added bonus, she herself receives the benefit so long as she is next to an armor ally at the start of the turn. This skill alone makes Amelia incredibly valuable for skill fodder as she is one of two in the regular summoning pool to have this.


Amelia's biggest weakness is her lower magical bulk, which leaves her vulnerable to a host of units like Tharja, Lilina, and especially Festival Micaiah, the latter of whom can easily one shot her with Dawn Suzu's armor effectiveness. In turn, armor slaying Reds like Hana, Tobin, and Halloween Hector easily demolish her despite her solid physical bulk. That aside, even some Greens with armor slayer effects like Bartre and Brave Micaiah similarly can smash through her bulk simply due to high might and armor effective weapons. Even if running Distant Counter, the most powerful staff users Brave Veronica, Brave Camilla, and Bridal Fjorm can poke her from a distance and apply the standard Staff skill combos to slowly whittle down her and her allies health due to the usual tight formations of armor teams.

Skill Inheritance[]

Like most Armors, Amelia should inherit most standard skills attributed to the class, namely Pivot or Swap for a support skill simply for the mobility it helps provider or her teammates and special skills like Bonfire for the damage boost it takes from her solid Def. Distant Counter is put to use easily on her, though alternatives can include Fury just for the flat stat boost. Her Spd makes her one of the best Special Fighter users as she does not need to worry about needing skills like Quick Riposte or Bold Fighter to score a double against her opponent, though Quick Riposte is a decent option to inherit if Special Fighter is not available for inheritance simply to secure doubles against the faster end of the Spd tier.
Amelia works well with Attack Speed Ideal, which syncs well with her Grado Pole Axe. Assault Troop allows Amelia to burst forward with three tile movement in a cardinal direction, forgoing a tight Armor cluster for solo performance while Attack Speed Near Save or Attack Defense Near Save lets Amelia soak the attack of melee enemies that attempt to attack her allies and boosts her two best stats depending of the player wants to win the speed threshold game or just outright improve her physical bulk.

Recruitment (Ephraim's route)[]

With Ephraim

  • Ephraim: You're a Grado soldier? But you're just a child.
  • Amelia: I am not a child! I'm a soldier of Grado, and I will defeat every soldier of Frelia I meet!
  • Ephraim: Is that so? Guess I'm ready then.
  • Amelia: Um…
  • Ephraim: Is that the stance you're going to use? You'll drop your lance that way. I'm Prince Ephraim of Renais. Why don't you surrender and come with me?
  • Amelia: Wha-what are you going to do to me?!
  • Ephraim: Calm down. As long as you don't try to stab me, I won't do a thing to harm you.
  • Amelia: You lie! You're a liar! Everyone knows about Prince Ephraim of Renais. He's a beast who attacks any woman he sees…
  • Ephraim: …..Right, this has gone far enough. I am not going to hurt you. If you're scared, throw down your weapon and run away. But…if you're willing to listen, I'd like to ask for your help. You must realize this whole war is madness, right? Something is wrong in Grado.
  • (Ephraim leaves)
  • Amelia: ….. I-I'm…

With Franz

  • Franz: You…You're a girl?!
  • Amelia: Ah! Don't make fun of me! I'm a soldier of Grado! Prepare yourself, Frelian dog!
  • Franz: W-wait a minute!
  • (Amelia trips)
  • Amelia: Oof..
  • Franz: Are, are you all right? It's not surprising you fell over from that stance. Can you get up?
  • Amelia: Sh-Shut up!
  • Franz: Did you hurt your knee? I know how it feels. I did it often as a recruit myself. To be honest, I still do it more than I should.
  • Amelia: …..
  • Franz: I'm Franz. I'm a Knight of Renais. What's your name?
  • Amelia: I'm Amelia.
  • Franz: Do you think I could ask you to surrender? This may be odd, but I really have no desire to fight you.
  • Amelia: …..
  • Franz: I get the feeling you don't want to fight either. Am I right?
  • Amelia: I… B-but…I've heard prince Ephraim takes females prisoners and uses them as palace slaves. If I surrender, will I be forced to work in the palace, too?
  • Franz: N-no, don't be silly! Prince Ephraim would never do such a thing…I think..
  • Amelia: You think?
  • Franz: No, he wouldn't! Of course not. You have my word of honor.
  • Amelia: …Well, you seem sincere. I'll trust you, Franz.

Recruitment (Eirika's Route)[]

With Eirika

  • Eirika: Who are you?
  • Amelia: What? What?
  • Eirika: Are you from around here? You should find someplace to hide. These men are after me. It's not safe.
  • Amelia: But… But I'm…
  • Eirika: Yes?
  • Amelia: I'm a Grado soldier. I'm here to stop the princess of Renais...
  • Eirika: Huh? You're with Grado?
  • Amelia: And you're Princess Eirika? But the commander said Eirika's a cruel and merciless fiend…
  • Eirika: What? No, I'm… I don't know what Grado's officers have been telling you, but… Our two countries are at war, so I suppose they can say what they want.
  • Amelia: …Mistress Eirika…I, uh, I surrender. I won't fight you.
  • Eirika: Huh?
  • Amelia: I became a soldier because I admired General Duessel's sense of honor. But the general has been very opposed to this war from the beginning… And now I see you, and you look so sad about all of this. I don't know what's right anymore. I'm just a soldier, but I want to decide for myself. I want to understand the truth myself, to see it with my own eyes.
  • Eirika: …I see. So…does this mean you're coming with us? I suppose I should ask your name then.
  • Amelia: Amelia. Amelia of Silva.

With Franz

  • Franz: Oh, who are you?
  • Amelia: What? What?
  • Franz: Are you one of the locals? This is a dangerous spot. You should hide. Here, come with me.
  • Amelia: But… But I'm…
  • Franz: I'm Franz, a Knight of Renais. What's your name? What are you doing here?
  • Amelia: I-I'm Amelia. I'm… Actually, I'm a Grado soldier. I'm supposed to be fighting you.
  • Franz: Really? So, uh, you're my enemy?
  • Amelia: …I guess… Are you… Are you going to make me your prisoner?!
  • Franz: No! No, I wouldn't do that. But…this is a problem.
  • Amelia: What should we do?
  • Franz: First of all, you must listen to me and do as I say. We'll talk to Princess Eirika later.
  • Amelia: What? NO! My commander told me Eirika's a cruel and merciless fiend who--
  • Franz: Oh, that's utter nonsense. I've never heard the princess utter an unkind word to anyone. I understand why you're frightened. You think we're the enemy. But if you'd only trust me… Will you come with me?
  • Amelia: Mm… Well, all right. I'll trust you, Franz.

Possible Endings[]

Amelia, Rose of the War (戦場の花, Senjō no hana lit. Flower of the Battlefield)
Following the war, she returned to Grado to assist in her country's reconstruction. She surrounded herself with new friends and used the strength she found on the battlefield to live her life in happiness.
Amelia and Ewan
After the war, Ewan and Amelia set out, as promised, on a trip around the world. Their deeds along the way made small legends in the regions they visited. In time, Amelia gave birth to a daughter, and they settled down.
Amelia and Duessel
Upon their return to Grado, Duessel reunited Amelia with her mother. The two wept with joy, giving thanks to Duessel. Afterward, Amelia became the most trusted companion of the man once known as Obsidian.
Amelia and Franz
Franz brought Amelia home with him in Renais. Amelia spent a short time with him in Renais' army, but once she and Franz were married, she retired her commission. The two had a daughter who grew to be a great knight herself.
Amelia and Ross
Amelia traveled to Ross's hometown, where she decided to remain. Over time, the two fell in love and were wed. Years later they had a son who grew into a warrior. As he grew in skill and strength, he surpassed even his father.


The name Amelia comes from either of two names: Amalia, a Germanic name derived from the word 'amal' (work) or Emilia, which derives from the Roman family name Aemilius, which comes from the word 'aemulus' (rival). The birth defect 'amelia' refers to an absence of a limb, from the Greek 'a' (none) and the word for 'limb'. The name Amelia also bears a strong resemblance to the French verb "améliorer", which means "to improve".
