“Why do you refuse Duma's truth? It is incomprehensible...”
—Hestia's battle quote in Act 4 of Echoes

Hestia is an enemy character from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.


Hestia is the second daughter of Jedah, the middle sister of Marla and Sonya, and a member of the Duma Faithful. Her soul was offered up to Duma, transforming her into a witch in his service. In Heroes, Hestia reveals that she agreed to become a witch because Jedah insisted that it was needed to resurrect Duma, which was required to save the broken world of man. During the ritual, Marla's soul was offered to Duma first, at which point Sonya fled, but Hestia chose to follow Marla's example, and continued to believe that following her father's plan was for the best.

Hestia is first encountered during the Deliverance's assault on Rigel. She is stationed at Rigel Falls where she fights and is repelled by the Deliverance. She later reappears during the final battle against Duma alongside her father and older sister, where she is killed alongside her family, allowing Alm and Celica's combined armies to finally face and slay Duma.

In Sonya's base conversation, it is revealed that Marla, Hestia, and Sonya had at one point been abandoned at a priory by Jedah. According to Sonya, while growing up at the priory, Hestia was smart and mature, and also marched to her own beat.


According to her youngest sister, Sonya, prior to becoming a witch, Hestia was smart, mature and also marched to her own beat.

Upon becoming a witch, Hestia entered a state of confusion, wondering why Sonya got to live her life freely while she wasn't able to, even after following Jedah's orders and plan to the letter. At the time of her defeat, Hestia admits that she wished she had lived life the way she wanted to, instead of giving up her soul to Duma.
