Castle Shirasagi is a location in Fire Emblem Fates.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Castle Shirasagi is the royal castle in Hoshido. It stands atop a sheer-sided mountain surrounded with the Hoshidan capital at its base, and serves as the residence of Queen Mikoto and her step-children Ryoma, Hinoka, Takumi, and Sakura.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Shirasagi is the Japanese word for Pure-white Heron (白鷺, or great egret). It is also the nickname of Himeji Castle, an 83-building complex near Osaka, which earned the nickname because the white plaster walls resembled an egret's or heron's outstretched wings.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Castle Shirasagi inspires the Castle Sol stage in Fire Emblem Warriors, which often hosts missions including Hoshidan characters.
