“I'm scared of when you grow up. Will you still play with me? I never want you to leave me! I want to play tag and other games.”
—Fae in a support conversation with Sophia

Fae is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is a Divine Dragon child from the hidden Manakete village of Arcadia.

True to her appearance, she is childish and naïve. Despite this, she is several centuries old. Because she is a full blooded dragon, she ages very slowly, even more so than Sophia (who is a half-dragon).

Profile

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade

Fae can be found in the house in Chapter 22 of Eliwood's story or Chapter 23 of Hector's story in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, making a brief cameo. She is alone there watching the house. She reveals that there is treasure buried in the sand near the bones and implies that she encountered Pent, telling him about the treasure. Her name is only mentioned if Hawkeye enters the house, in which case, she will tease him about his habit of saying "Is that so?" and reveal information about the buried items.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

When Roy first arrives in the hidden village, Fae wants to go with them but is forbidden to do so. Despite the guardians of Nabata watching over her, first Hawkeye, then his daughter Igrene, Fae sneaks out and is captured by Bern. She is saved by Roy later on and fights with the army using her Divinestone.

Although Fae is an extremely powerful unit with very high growth rates, she faces many perils. Her base HP and Speed are all very low so even if physical units do poor damage against her, she's still getting doubled which adds up very fast due to her low base HP. Furthermore, her weapon only has 30 uses and cannot be repaired which limits her combat even more. Lastly, she has very low movement which means getting her to the frontlines is hard without another unit ferrying her. Many players will point out that she's required for the final chapter but it's very easy to have another unit rescue her and move as there aren't many enemies on the map and reinforcements appear somewhat late and have trouble catching up.

However, she has unique utility in stopping long-range magic (siege tomes and status staves) users dead in their tracks, as her high RES boost from her Divinestone gives her enough to take no damage and also makes her great at dodging status from staves such as the Sleep staff, making her very useful in baiting them out (she has to be last in the deployment order for this to work though, due to how enemy status staves users' AI works in The Binding Blade).

The Binding Blade

“I'm so...scared...”
—Fae's death quote in The Binding Blade.
“...Do we have to fight...? ...Sniff...”
—Fae's final battle quote in The Binding Blade.

The Blazing Blade

Conversation in the house on Chapter 22

(if any of the Player Units visited the house)
Fae: You know what? I'm watching the house all by myself. Do you know how to do that? You have to sit and be good. So that's why I'm here. What are all of you guys doing? Are you hunting for treasure, like that other guy? Let me tell you a secret. There's something good buried near the bones. I know stuff like that.

(if Hawkeye visited the house)
Fae: Ah! It's you, Hawkeye!
Hawkeye: What are you doing, Fae?
Fae: I'm watching the house!
Hawkeye: Is that so?
Fae: Oh, guess what! A man came to see me earlier. So I told him a secret. I told him something good is buried near the bones. Yup! He looked pretty happy!
Hawkeye: Is that so...
Fae: That's all you ever say, Hawkeye! "Is that so?"
Hawkeye: Is that so?
Fae: See! You said it again!
Hawkeye: Is that—sorry.

Etymology

"Fae" is variant of the name "Fay", derived from Middle English faie meaning "fairy". It appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Arthurian legends in the name of Morgan le Fay. It has been used as a given name since the 19th century. In some cases it may be used as a short form of Faith. Also, "fey" means magical, fairylike, strange and otherworldly.

Bugs

  • While Fae can only attack using a Divine Stone with only 30 uses, it is possible to steal a Fire Dragonstone with infinite uses in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade for Fae to use. This can be done in either Chapter 22 or 23 by having a Thief run up to an enemy Manakete and have the thief get berserked by an enemy spellcaster (although this can be very dangerous for the thief). Should the thief choose to steal from the Manakete, he/she will end up stealing a Fire Dragonstone, something that a normal thief not berserked would not be able to do. This will glitch Fae's battle animations, and may cause the game to crash.
    • Using the Fire Dragonstone against Idunn will cause severe graphical glitches, as described above.

Trivia

  • Fae shares her English voice actress, Sarah Blandy, with Kagero, Midori, Layla, and Nino.
  • On the official Japanese website for Nintendo, Fae won 13th place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. The male-female vote ratio is 1:1. The voter comments seem to mainly focus on her endearing and innocent personality.
  • In a support conversation with Elffin, she reveals that "Fae" is only a nickname, and that her real name is a very long sound that humans are unable to hear.
  • In Japanese versions of dialogue, she speaks in third-person.
