“So I guess my 20,000 gold wage really is the highest here... Well, who should be surprised? I am quite simply the finest mercenary that money can buy...”
—Farina in a support conversation with Dart

Farina is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. She is a famed member of the 3rd Wing of Ilia's Pegasus Knights. She is the middle sister of Fiora and Florina. She only appears in Hector's Tale and joins in that version of the story.


Before The Blazing Blade[]

When Farina was a pegasus esquire, her squad almost died in a practice maneuver. However, Fiora left her own mission and arrived to save them, which resulted in her being charged with a massive termination fee. While Farina says that Fiora should have left her to die to preserve her own honor, she is also grateful to her for her actions and wishes to help her pay off the loan.

Some time before the storyline, Farina got into an argument with Fiora that caused the two of them to separate.

Hector's Tale[]

Farina makes her first appearance in Chapter 25 of Hector's Tale and offers to be hired by Hector for the large sum of 20,000 gold. Whether or not she is paid and recruited is the choice of the player.

If she is recruited, she reveals that she asked this amount of money to pay Fiora's debt. Despite her older sister's protests of receiving the payment, the two make amends.


If Farina achieves an A support with Hector, she will marry him in the Epilogue, making her the marchioness of Ostia. In this scenario, Farina gives birth to his daughter, Lilina. She passes away for unknown reasons prior to the events of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.

In other routes, Farina can marry Kent or Dart. If she settles with Kent, she still lives as a mercenary and they are wed when Lyn abdicates Caelin. If she falls for Dart, she joins him as a pirate and accompanies him in his nautical adventures.


Farina is a very cynical person and sees the world in realistic lenses, having a rather jaded approach towards life and people in general. She is very greedy and seems to be obsessed with wealth. She also has a high opinion of herself, as she believes that she is the finest mercenary that can be bought with money. This demeanor results from the fact that she grew in poverty so she is aware that everything comes with a "price", therefore she seeks money restlessly, to have a sense of material and emotional security. Still, once she signs a contract, she’ll never betray her employer.

Farina can be very sarcastic at times, and is rather rude to those who can't afford her services, She appears to be miserly and crude at times, but she does care deeply for her friends and family. She is the most spunky and energetic of the three pegasus sisters. Although Farina is on poor terms with Fiora due to their past, she gives her a portion of her 20,000 gold payment to pay off the termination fee in their support conversations. She is on better terms with Florina, but used to tease her younger sister until she cried. This is because she saw Florina as too weak and wants to test her limits. While she continues to tease her in their support conversations, Farina states that this is to make sure that Florina hasn't changed too much from her newfound strength.


The Blazing Blade[]

Description: A member of the 3rd wing of Ilia's pegasus knights.


Speak to her in Chapter 25 of Hector's story mode and pay her. It should be noted that if the player talks to her a second time, even if its the turn after the first conversation, and the player refuses to pay her, she will leave and it will become impossible to recruit her. Oddly enough, talking to her with her two sisters Florina and Fiora will have no effect on her payment.

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.

Farina has a very impressive strength growth, but her cap is very low and she will max it before long. Her Skill and Speed are lower than her sisters', but she has higher defense. Her Resistance is alright, but nothing special for her class. Her Luck is decent, as well as her HP. Her Con is too low to wield even most swords, so she may have trouble doubling Swordmasters when using lances, unless she uses a Body Ring. Her joining time is very late, but she is not of the Est archetype. However, this makes her an excellent candidate for the Afa's Drops, if the player chooses not to level Nino.

While her recruitment costs of 20,000 gold might look like a considerable drawback, her utility as 4th flying unit are without a doubt worth the price, especially since money shouldn't be much of a problem after the Dragon's Gate in a non-ranked scenario. It's easy to give her level-ups during her recruitment chapter, and she can promote at base, further increasing her movement and durability, making her an excellent choice for Night of Farewells and Cog of Destiny where land units might have trouble advancing fast enough to reach villages or threats such as status-staff-users or long-range tomes.

Farina's supports with Florina, Fiora, Dart, and Dorcas are very useful, as they will give her additional attack power to break down the opponent with. Florina, in particular, will boost both unit's attack and defenses, which is very handy for her, considering that Florina's growth rate in strength and defenses are very shaky and inconsistent.

It is not possible to use a Triangle Attack in Eliwood's story as Farina is absent.

Base Set[]

Farina does not heavily deviate from the standard offensive lance flier unit having incredibly solid offensive stats of 36 Atk and 38 Spd in exchange for a middling mixed bulk, scoring 69 for both physical and magical. With the former two stats allowing her to quickly operate in the Heroes meta upon her introduction in her class, it does unfortunately leave her rather one note, leaving her to compete with one of the most saturated unit type combination pools. Farina is also one of the first characters who demands a unique type of investment that no other character upon her release required to fully access her kit's potential. Her overall perks do outweigh her flaws, thus it is merely a preference if wanting to build her as she does earn her weight in gold when she is given her due diligence.
Her Hotshot Lance is a stronger Slaying Lance, thus accelerating her special cooldowns. True to her character, she wants to be invested into to make her stronger. Based on the amount of Dragonflowers she has been given, her lance grows stronger in two separate ways. If she is at least 25% of her maximum health at the start of combat, Farina gains extra Atk/Spd/Def/Res based on the number of Dragonflowers invested. If she gains +4 if she has two or fewer Dragonflowers, +5 if she has three, +6 if she has four, and +7 if she has five or more. On top of the +1 to all five of her stats she gains from giving her five Dragonflowers, this pumps up her offenses and bulk to astronomical levels and makes her far stronger than her field stats suggest. In addition, under the same HP threshold above, if she has at least 3 Dragonflowers, her foes lose visible stat increases during combat.
Reposition is the perfect Assist Skill for Farina to help get her allies out of danger or potentially position them closer so they can attack an enemy she cannot handle. Atk/Spd Catch 4 grants Farina +7 Atk/Spd if her foe is at 100% HP or has a【Penalty】and also grants her an additional +2 Atk/Spd for a sum of +9 which does stack on her Hotshot Lance boosts. Attack Speed Snag inflicts an Atk/Spd -6 penalty on the nearest foe if Farina uses or is the target of an Assist skill. Attack Defense Rein inflicts Atk/Def -4 penalty on foes within two spaces of her during combat.


Farina's strength comes mainly from how much Dragonflower investment she is given and since this does transfer over to enemy AI Arena Duel/Aether Raids teams that use and invest in her, it is best to check for this before engaging in combat with her. Outside of this, Farina is still quite vulnerable to standard flier weaknesses, mainly Bow users like Legendary Leif or Claude and his various forms. Green tome users with flier effective weapons also work nicely due to the color advantage of most of them like Merric's Excalibur or Cecilia's Tome of Order. Bulky green units like Brave Edelgarde, Legendary Hector, and Surtr can also easily weather even her highly boosted blows.

Skill Inheritance[]

Farina requires merely a special to round out her kit with Moonbow being probably the best overall choice simply to widen the range of bulky units that she can destroy. If accessible, Dive-Bomb can ensure that her nearly guaranteed follow-up attack is performed before her foe can counterattack.

Farina's name is a pun with her sisters' names; while Florina and Fiora's names mean 'flower' as in a blossom, the name 'Farina' means 'flour' as in the principle ingredient for bread, in Latin and Italian. This could also refer to Farina's preoccupation with making money, by referring to the slang term 'dough.'


  • Much like Hawkeye, Farina's name is largely changed in the Italian version. This is because Farina means "flour" in Italian, and as such would be a name impossible to take seriously.
  • Farina is the most expensive character in the Beowolf Archetype to recruit, asking for 20,000 gold instead of the usual 10,000 (or less).
  • Farina shares her English voice actress, Reba Buhr with Path of Radiance's and Radiant Dawn's Jill in Heroes and her Japanese voice actress, Shiori Izawa with The Binding Blades' Larum in Heroes.
