“He's very important to me. And the world... But mostly to me. So do as I ask, Ogma. Keep him safe. That's my first and last request.”
—Caeda to Ogma about Marth in Shadow Dragon.

Caeda (Shiida in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the European version of Shadow Dragon and the Latin American / non-English European versions of Heroes, Sheda in the English version of the anime, and Shida in the Italian version of the anime) is a playable character from the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem. She is the pure-hearted princess of Talys, daughter of King Mostyn, and a childhood friend and later wife of Marth.

According to the Takayashiki Hideo novel adaptation of Mystery of the Emblem, Caeda is 14 years old in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and 18 in Book 2 of Mystery of the Emblem.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

At some point of time before the events of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light take place, Caeda, age 10, while exploring the streets of Knorda, chanced upon the local arena, where she bore witness to Ogma being whipped for having aided in the escape of his fellow gladiator Samuel. Midway through Ogma's torment, Caeda embraced his back and used her body as a shield to prevent the tormentors from continuing to mete out Ogma's punishment. Shortly after her act of heroism, she purchased Ogma from the arena owner and appointed him as one of her personal bodyguards, granting him the opportunity to escape from his wretched life as a gladiator.

War of ShadowsEdit

Caeda makes her first formal appearance in Chapter 1 of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, where she, in a frenzied state of panic, flies to the eastern fortress that Marth has taken up residence in on the island nation of Talys. There, she urgently seeks his assistance in eradicating a group of Galder Pirates besieging the castle. After Marth and his loyal retainers succeed in fulfilling her request, she then joins him on his conquest to bring the War of Shadows to an end. Along the way, Caeda proves to be instrumental in recruiting several characters to Marth's cause, including Castor, Navarre, Roger, Jake and Lorenz. Following the conclusion of the war, Caeda is engaged to Marth as his fiancée, and she returns to Talys with the purpose of visiting her father.

Upon setting foot onto the island, however, Caeda is thrust into the mire of conflict, as the local clans, learning of her engagement with Marth, seize the opportunity to revolt. The events of Downloadable Episode 3 in New Mystery of the Emblem are thereafter spurred, where Ogma leads Bord and Cord on a mission to rescue Caeda. Midway through the ensuing battle, however, Ogma is ambushed by Navarre, who intends on settling an old score through a duel. Caeda later enters the scene with Norne, whereupon she rushes to Ogma's aid by convincing Navarre to defect to her cause. After the remainder of the hostile stragglers are routed, Caeda will tearfully depart from Ogma after expressing her heartfelt gratitude towards him for his devout loyalty, thereafter settling down in Altea Castle with Marth.

War of HeroesEdit

Chronologically, Caeda reappears in Prologue III of New Mystery of the Emblem, where she assists Cain in training the 7th Platoon. After being bested by the 7th Platoon, she then proceeds to aid them until they are recognised as full-fledged knights at the end of Prologue VIII. After the harrowing encounter with Eremiya's assassins in the same chapter, Caeda seeks an audience with Kris, where she requests that they remain steadfastly by Marth's side and protect him from coming to harm.

As the day of Caeda's wedding with Marth draws near, a request from Emperor Hardin for Marth to quell a supposed rebel uprising in Grust arrives in Altea. Forced to postpone the wedding as a result, Marth sets out to fulfil the request, while Caeda remains behind to keep watch over Altea Castle alongside Cain. Shortly after Marth sets out, the combined might of Gra and Aurelis besieges Altea, rapidly seizing control of the country. In an act of selflessness, Marth's sister, Elice, elects to surrender in place of Caeda, urging her to escape and reunite with Marth. Caeda succeeds in doing so at the end of Chapter 4 in Holm Beach, where she relays the grim news before taking up arms to fight alongside him. She then accompanies him on his campaign to bring the War of Heroes to an end, recruiting several personages into Marth's army along the way, including Samuel, Roger and Jake. After the conclusion of the war, Caeda finally marries Marth, and she is said to resemble an angel in her wedding dress. She would rule alongside Marth as the new Queen of Archanea.

AwakeningEdit

Caeda was among the many combatants in the War of Shadows whose legacy endured over 2000 years into the present timeline of Awakening. Many Pegasus Knights of Ylisse idolize her and see her as a model Pegasus Knight, both remembered for her strength, kindness, and ability to sway enemies into Marth's army. The First Exalt is said to have had a bride who was a Pegasus Knight who wielded a Spear with Wings on it, much like Caeda once did.

PersonalityEdit

Caeda is portrayed as a kind, patient and a forgiving yet headstrong and stubborn individual, a fact that is evident through her interactions with various characters. Her base conversations with Kris, for one, sees her patiently guiding them in the art of cooking, choosing to tactfully console them instead of chastising them when they display a disastrous ineptness in making candy. These traits of Caeda's are ones that extend towards her being able to overlook a given person's past and grant them chances to make repatriations. Caeda's relationship with Ogma best illustrates this point, as she, in spite of her reservations over his past life as a barbaric gladiator with an unquenchable thirst for mindless, meaningless battle, chooses to grant him a second chance at life by knighting him as one of her personal guards. When the situation mandates a need for Caeda to be serious however, she can be gravely so, a fact that sees her risking her safety in many a battlefield in order to seek reinforcements to turn the tide of battle in her favor, as is the case when she escapes her home castle in Talys during a Galder Pirate invasion. Bolstering her battlefield tactics, Caeda has been portrayed to be extremely perceptive and to possess a sharp memory.

Many characters remark on her wisdom and intelligence, which was evident from a young age, making her a valuable asset both on and off the battlefield. Her wisdom and honest disposition has made her an effective diplomat. She is able to reach out to men with even the hardest of hearts like Navarre, convincing them to switch sides and join Marth's army. She has also been shown to be quite politically adept as shown in her recruit conversation with Lorenz. While she does not often employ it, she can effectively utilize her charm and beauty to sway enemies into joining Marth's army.

Caeda shares a close bond with Marth, one that eventually blossoms into a passionate love. As a result, she is exceedingly protective of Marth, a fact that has compelled her to personally enlist in his army to act as a member of his combat troops. This sense of protectiveness is especially evident in her conversations with Marth, where, in response to his request for her to vacate the front-lines out of concern over her safety, she ardently insists on fighting by his side instead of sitting idly by while the other members of the army risk their lives. Other examples illustrating her protectiveness of Marth takes the form of her issuing the command for Ogma and his mercenaries to focus on protecting Marth instead of her.

In Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Caeda has extremely high skill, speed and luck, which will lead to her doubling almost every enemy and seldom getting hit. Her low stength can be a problem, though. Fortunately, her base Weapon Level is high enough to immediately wield Jagen's Silver Lance, which is highly recommended if the player plans on using her, as it will make feeding her kills much easier during the early game. When she promotes to a Wyvern Rider, she will actually lose some skill and speed, but gains massive bonuses to her strength and defense. Since it drastically improves her combat without weapons other than the Silver Lance, it is recommended to promote her as soon as possible, as she will be very likely to cap luck, skill and speed regardless.

In all, Caeda is a very good unit as she has high availability, flying utility, high movement, a high base weapon level, and good combat after promotion.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Caeda's growths make her fit a stereotypical Pegasus Knight, excelling in skill, speed and luck while having terrible HP, strength and defense. However, Dracoknight, the promoted class to the Pegasus Knight, is very opposite to this, particularly restricting her into a very low speed cap while still not gaining enough strength upon promotion to deal much damage to enemies. Luckily, even as a Dracoknight, her speed will suffice to double many enemies throughout the game, while forging the Wing Spear and a Dragonpike allows her to do tremendous damage against bosses and other threatening enemies despite her only average-low strength. Thus it's not a bad idea to keep Caeda as a Dracoknight, since it's the class which grants her the highest mobility and therefore gives her excellent possibilities to contribute in combat, except you really feel constricted by the Dracoknight's statcaps.

A good alternative class option to the Dracoknight class when Caeda promotes is the Paladin class, which has a slightly higher speed cap and also higher growth rates in strength and defense, though they will likely not be high enough to fix Caeda's strength issues, as the increased growth rate in strength is usually counteracted by the loss in one point of strength upon class change. However, the class retains Caeda's ability to use Lances, allowing her to use her personal Wing Spear, gives her good mobility outside of desert maps, keeps the high resistance base of the Pegasus Knight class, and also gives Caeda a secondary weapon in Swords as opposed to Axes; while Axes are undeniably stronger than Swords, Caeda can make better use out of Swords than Axes, as it provides her better leverage against Axe users, and even as a Dracoknight Caeda is too fragile to face most Axe users in higher difficulties

Base SetEdit

Caeda statwise is subpar mainly due to the fact that she has one of the lowest base Atk stats in the entire game. Fortunately for her, she is saved by high Spd and high enough Res to resist Ploy users. Caeda is most proficient against dragon units as well due to her Res and with many Dragons now being armored as well, her damage potential has increased, making her a threat against several top tier dragon units.

The low Atk is a sore spot, not helped by her initial weapon Armorslayer, which has a decent stat and can deal effective damage against armor units, but still keeps it at a 37 average. However, she received a boost when her Wing Sword became available, bringing her Atk to a workable 41, but also adding on cavalry effectiveness on top of armor slaying, allowing a wider range of units that she can often kill in a single round. When refined, she gains a Flashing Blade effect, accelerating her special cooldown when she has higher speed than her opponent. Her refinement makes her a speed threat and can easily take full advantage over several common units in the arenas, especially if she has a Boon in the stat.

Her base kit includes Rally Speed a decent support skill, but ultimately powercrept by stronger, advanced versions of the same skill. Darting Blow increases her already high Spd, allowing her to ensure she achieves her refined weapon's cooldown or simply secure a double. Fortify Fliers grants a huge boost to the defensive stats of adjacent flying allies at the start of the player's turn, giving her a natural supportive option for flier teams.

CountersEdit

As a standard flier, Caeda is vulnerable to bows, thus common bow units like Brave Lyn, Klein and Legendary Alm can instantly shoot her down. Her low Atk leaves her little room to contest bulky blues such as Shiro, Nephenee, and Tana. Certain blue armors can potentially survive a hit, such as Fallen Hardin and Effie, but Caeda can threaten them if they are sufficiently weakened.

Skill InheritanceEdit

Reposition is the best supportive option as she can move allies around her and on a flier team, this is a crucial skill. Iceberg pairs nicely with her high Res though Moonbow can be a serviceable option as well given that the def reduction is useful. Fury gives her a nice flat stat boost and the small damage after combat serves to fuel Desperation to ensure follow-up attacks immediately when initiating. While not completely necessary, Caeda can run Ploy skills, especially Speed Ploy as that will help her achieve the Flashing Blade effect of her refined Wing Sword.

Base SetEdit

Bridal Caeda is a typical offensive oriented mage. While her Atk is a bit on the lower side, she makes up for this with her high Spd and respectable Res, leaving her as a powerful Mage dueling unit that can secure double against certain enemies while avoiding them from others. Her physical bulk is on the low side, but ideally she will want to avoid these type of units anyways.

Blessed Bouquet grants a +2 Def/Res buff to any ally within two spaces of her after she initiates combat, giving an ally the ability to tank hits slightly better and allow Caeda to initiate, then have an ally pull her away so they can handle the enemy phase. Iceberg is a natural fit for her high Res and is her best special option. Atk/Res 2 is a flat +2 increase to Atk and Res, but there are better skill options out there. Hone Speed grants adjacent allies a +4 Spd boost at the start of the player's turn, which is a good support option.

CountersEdit

Running Bridal Caeda's physical bulk is the fastest way to kill her, leaving her vulnerable to a host of units in the green and blue pools and several common archer units a s well. Common green units, including Hector and Fallen Male Robin who carries Distant Counter in some form, allows them to immediately retaliate and destroy her with ease. High Res Green units like Sheena, Julia, and Myrrh can resist a hit and retaliate. Green Dragons in particular can exploit her lower Def when attacking due to her lower.

Skill InheritanceEdit

Ultimately, Bridal Caeda would rather have a tome that boosts her offensive potential, which makes Blárblade an excellent option so she can get buffed and demolish a target. Draw Back allows Caeda to pull allies out of danger while Ardent Sacrifice can be chosen to push her into Desperation range. Primarily, Bridal Caeda should be a player turn character so Swift Sparrow is a go option to maximize this while Fury is a good budget option for the consisten flat stat increase and the slow damage to get her into Desperation range. Finally, she can run a host of skills for her C Slot, but she is an effective Ploy skill user.

Base SetEdit

Young Caeda ironically is a superior version of her older, original form in nearly every aspect as a Sword Flier. She has an impressive 42 Spd that can reach a blistering 46 if it is her asset. While her 33 Atk may seem a bit low, her weapon easily addresses this. While her Def and Res are mediocre at best, her kit simply renders these inconsequential in the long run. Rivaling even the mighty Altina, Young Caeda is easily one of the strongest Sword Fliers in the game. Her Feather Sword gives her +3 Atk, essentially making the weapon 19 Mt. However, its most interesting feature is its effective damage effect whenever she battles any armor foe or a foe who wields a sword, lance, axe, or colorless bow, making her a powerful check to a huge portion to the cast, even checking lance units who should normally be her counter. Interestingly, if she initiates combat on any of the aforementioned unit types stated or if she is has no more than 75% of her current HP, she gains a Vantage effect. She also has a unique passive Skill B Belief in Love. If either her opponent initiates combat on her or if they are at full health at the start of combat, she instantly inflicts Atk/Def -5 during combat, making her surprisingly tanky and even more hard hitting than she may initially seem to be. Though she may be vulnerable to bows, Distant Counter allows her check ranged foes and in that weapon's case, she can kill them with Feather Sword's effect before they can even use their own effective damage. Moonbow perfectly compliments her kit to further increase her damage output even against the most hardy of enemies. Joint Hone Attack gives her an easy means to self buff herself and allies by increasing both her and her adjacent ally's Atk by 5 if she starts off her turn adjacent to an ally.

CountersEdit

Dealing with Young Caeda is incredibly tricky due to her weapon. Weapons that can outright negate her ability to counterattack like Firesweep and Dazzling Staff removes most of the most looming threats. Colored bows also can avoid her effect, in particular blue ones like Legendary Lucina and Legendary Chrom who not only can exploit her flyier status but also use the color advantage. Strong beast units like Nailah and Naesala also do not activate her effects and has enough bulk to take a hit if needed. Hardy Bearing is also a problematic seal as it removes her ability to utilize her sword's vantage effect, especially if it is used on a colorless bow.

Skill InheritanceEdit

Young Caeda's kit is near perfect and requires merely a support skill to finish her load out. Reposition is the standard best choice for her overall as a positioning assist. Skill C is flexible and can change out with Smoke skills, Wave skills, and even flier skills if seeking to use her as a powerful flier team unit.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

AnimeEdit

Caeda plays a huge role in the anime, especially in Episode 1, which focuses on the relationship between her and Marth. She is portrayed to be rather feisty, especially when she catches Marth daydreaming. Her desire to protect Marth eventually gets her kidnapped by Gazzak, which almost gets both of them killed until Ogma's timely intervention saves the two. She then goes on to save her father, the King of Talys, from the Galder Pirates. After Marth saves Talys, he is forced to reluctantly leave Caeda, and she decides to follow him after her father insists that she do so, acknowledging her feelings for Marth.

Episode 2 sees Caeda argue against Marth's plan to cross Samsian territory, only to be told by Marth that he is well aware of the risks. There, she breaks up a fight between Ogma and Navarre, which leads to Navarre's recruitment and the victory over the bandits.

MangaEdit

Caeda's role in the War of Shadows is further expanded in the manga adaptation, much more so than in the anime. Unlike the anime, Caeda's father disapproves of her seeing Marth at first, as he is concerned over the suspicions that may be raised with regards to Marth's social status as a noble. Again, Marth leaves Talys without her, but again she catches up with him.

Later, Caeda plays a rather significant role, as she heads off to the Aurelis Secondary Castle in order to notify Nyna and Hardin of Marth's arrival, but gets shot down en route. She fights on and manages to reach them, announcing Altea's devotion to Archanea. She then warns Hardin that her pegasus senses something fearful from the western skies before a battle breaks out soon after. Caeda almost dies protecting Nyna until Marth arrives on the scene and rescues the both of them. Throughout the rest of the story, Caeda continues to protect Marth, but never gains the courage to openly tell him that she loves him until much later. After the war, she leaves Talys to wed Marth and is crowned as the Queen of Altea.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FEEdit

Caeda appears as the Mirage partner of Tsubasa Oribe. A "Pegasus Knight" from another world who has lost her memory. She has a kind personality and acts like an older sister towards Tsubasa. In combat, she changes form to a lance to assist Tsubasa.

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

Caeda is illustrated in the trading card game with the following cards:

Etymology Edit

Caeda's Japanese name, Sheeda (シーダ), is ostensibly derived from the Persian name Sheida (‎شيدا) meaning "infatuation", the meaning of which contextualizes itself with relation to Caeda being Marth's love interest.

Her localized name, Caeda, is an alteration of a conjugated form of the Latin word caedo (caedam) meaning to "murder", "strike", or "defeat".

TriviaEdit

  • Caeda shares her English voice actress, Cherami Leigh, with Gwendolyn, Cecilia in Fire Emblem Heroes, Emma in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Mae in both Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and Heroes, and Rhea in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
  • As stated in her supports with Marisha, Caeda is not fond of sweet food. Despite this, in Fire Emblem Warriors, she eats candy with Tiki in their support ostensibly out of courtesy.
  • In Fire Emblem Warriors, Caeda states she is afraid of the dark and cannot sleep without her Pegasus nearby.
  • Like Lucius, Caeda appears using her secondary weapon(swords) instead of her main weapon(Lances) in Fire Emblem Heroes. As such her personal weapon, the Wing Spear was removed and eventually replaced by the Wing Sword which functions similarly to the lance.
  • Caeda's DLC Bride artwork from Fire Emblem Warriors shows her wielding the Wing Spear.
  • Caeda appears as a Sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In the English version of the game, her name is localized as "Shiida."
