“I had to fight every day of my sorry life and wear a smile while I did it!”
—Inigo talking to his father.

Inigo (Íñigo in the Non-English European versions) is a playable character introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening and returning in Fire Emblem Fates under the alias Laslow. His birthday is on August 7.

He is the son of Olivia, and a character from the future. In Awakening, he can be the brother of Lucina or Morgan, depending on if Olivia marries Chrom or Male Robin. In addition, he can also be the father of Morgan if Female Robin marries him.

In Fates, he is the father of Soleil. He can also be the father of Male Kana or Shigure, by achieving an S-support with Female Corrin or Azura (respectively).

Profile

Awakening

In the future, Inigo was shy, much like his mother, Olivia. However, Olivia wished to help him overcome his shyness by having him talk to girls. Although successful, this ended up turning him into a womanizer in the long run. Olivia also trained Inigo to dance (and mime), which fueled his desire to become a dancer himself. Olivia began teaching Inigo her favorite dance, but only managed to teach him the first half of it, as she was killed protecting him from the Risen. Inigo recovered Olivia's wedding ring and wore it from then on. Inigo helped to battle the Risen while furthering his dancing skill by improvising the ending. He often would practice in front of her grave, while pondering what she would think of the dance. Inigo eventually joined Lucina and the other children in returning to the past to prevent the ruinous future.

In his Paralogue, Inigo tirelessly fights off bandits to protect a local village near the Great Gate. Chrom's army arrives to help clear out the bandits, who have been ravaging the local villages.

If Chrom is his father and speaks to him, he will be surprised and slightly pleased that he has a son, albeit concerned that he raised a philanderer. If Olivia talks to him, he will be flustered by her appearance. Regardless of if Chrom or Olivia talks to him, he will become recruitable after being spoken to and leave to kill the bandits so he can impress a village girl.

After routing the bandits, Inigo approaches his mother and tries introducing himself, but finds himself unable to do so. So he shows Olivia his ring; the same ring she is wearing. Since returning from the future, Inigo had been searching for his mother by locating as many dancers as he could, hoping he would find her. Inigo tells her that he can dance, but when Olivia asks him to show her, he becomes flustered and asks his mother to dance instead. She is quick to reciprocate his earlier shyness. Inigo prepares to head back to the village for "tea-time" but Chrom tells him to either come with them or get left behind. Inigo abandons his original intention and joins Chrom's army.

After the war, Inigo traveled the world, solving other people's problems as a mercenary or entertaining others by dancing. Many people were grateful for his services.

In Inigo's support with Olivia, Olivia overhears that Inigo has been seen, on rare occasions by other members of the army, dancing in a secluded place in the middle of the night. Inigo is embarrassed by this and grows uncomfortable as Olivia tries her best to see him dance. Finally, Olivia manages to see him practicing her favorite dance, but with a different ending. Inigo tells her that this was the last dance she taught him, but he was only taught the first half because she died before he could learn the rest. Olivia loved Inigo's ending and promised to teach him the final part.

In Inigo's support with his father, his father is concerned with Inigo’s seemingly air headed and carefree attitude, despite coming from a desolate, post-apocalyptic world. When Inigo’s father catches him trailing behind his comrades with a serious leg wound, he scolds him for his reckless behavior and berates him for not seeking immediate medical attention. Inigo panics and makes an outlandish excuse about wanting to impress women, prompting his father to further voice his disappointment, and tell him he doesn’t know what it means to be at war. Inigo snaps upon hearing this, and lays out to his father that he doesn't know anything about him, and reveals that he isn’t nearly as carefree as he seems. He deliberately acted as though he didn’t have a care in the world for the sake of his friends. He didn’t want to show the world any weakness, so while everyone looked to him to be strong, he kept on smiling and laughing to keep up the moral of his comrades-in-arms. Even though both of his parents were dead, and he watched his mother die, he continued to act as though nothing was wrong for the sake of those around him. Feeling as though his pain was nothing to whine about with everyone else struggling in “that damn war torn wasteland”. After he calms down, he smiles and tells his father that he appreciates the concern and walks off to the healers tent. This causes his father to lament his words. He later reconciles with Inigo sometime after his leg is healed and tells Inigo that he couldn't be prouder of him, but that he shouldn't pretend to act invincible, and to come and talk to him rather than shouldering so many burdens alone. This support also reveals that part of the reason Inigo went back in time was to create a future where everyone could smile.

Although Inigo appears shy in Awakening, it is more prominently shown in Fates.

The Future Past

In an alternate future, Inigo is seen with Owain, Yarne, and Brady, running from a swarm of Risen that has began to chase them. Owain manages to persuade Yarne and Brady to run ahead to deliver the Gemstones to Lucina. Inigo makes a last stand with Owain and cuts the bridge to prevent the Risen from crossing. If all the children manage to survive at the end of the battle, Inigo and Owain will meet up with Brady and Yarne and safely return to Ylisse with the Gemstones in tow.

Should the player-controlled Inigo be adjacent to the computer-controlled one at the end of his turn, he will note that he remembers this place, but no Risen had been chasing them; as a result, he did not need to cut the bridge.

If Olivia or Inigo’s father ‘wait’ next to his green-unit counterpart it will initiate a unique conversation.

Half a year later, Inigo has stopped his womanizing habits and has begun dancing for a living with Brady accompanying him as his musician.

Fates

Some time after the events of Awakening, Inigo appears in the world of Fates, alongside Severa and Owain, and takes on the alias "Laslow". His supports with other characters (apart from Selena and Odin) show that the three of them are here for an unknown reason. Laslow becomes a personal retainer of the Nohrian, Crown Prince Xander. Though his birthplace and personal history are unknown to the people of Nohr. He is good at dancing and can use it as a special command. If he achieves an S-Support, he will have a daughter named Soleil.

In his support conversations with Xander, it is revealed that Garon ordered Laslow to serve as Xander’s retainer. Unsatisfied with having a stranger forced to be his retainer, Xander sparred with Laslow to test his skill. Xander was impressed by his foreign technique, leading Xander to accept Laslow as his retainer.

During his supports with Nyx, Laslow implies he feels incredibly guilty for abandoning his own world to travel to the world of Awakening stating, "Let's say I'd done something so cruel that I never wanted anyone to find out. If, say, I'd neglected a great many people... let them all die... Would you call me monster, too?". This is likely a reference to the third CD drama of Awakening, where the children from the future debate whether or not it's morally correct to leave the people of their world in order to have a chance of saving the world of Awakening.

Birthright

Laslow first appears on Birthright in Chapter 12, where he arrives with Peri and Xander to prevent Corrin from escaping. If Corrin battles Laslow, he will mention how he respected them prior to their defection, despite Corrin not remembering him. He is potentially defeated (or avoided) by the Hoshidians and retreats with Peri and Xander.

He later appears in Chapter 26. After the Hoshidians break in Castle Krakenburg and kill Hans and Iago, Xander leaves his room to confront Corrin alone, ordering him and Peri to stay in the room and not interfere. Concerned for the safety of their lord, Laslow and Peri disobey his orders and bring soldiers to help Xander. When they arrive in the chamber, they find Elise dead and assume the Hoshidans caused her death, and prepare to battle them. In the ensuing battle, Laslow can be fought. However, unlike Odin and Selena who retreat in their respective chapters, if defeated Laslow will die instead. If he's spared or avoided it is unknown what happens to him afterwards.

Conquest

Laslow first appears on Conquest in Chapter 12, he is sent with Peri by Xander to assist Corrin. They find Corrin in Palace Macarath and assist them in escaping the Hoshidan trap.

Laslow later helps Corrin settle the age old conflict between Hoshido and Nohr. At the end of the war, he "mysteriously disappears" alongside his wife (if he is married).

Revelation

Laslow first appears in Chapter 13, where he accompanies Xander to battle the Hoshidans in the ruined city of Cyrkensia. At the end of the battle, he retreats alongside the rest of the Nohrian Army. Laslow does not appear again until Chapter 17, where he arrives late into the battle due to Xander rushing, on horseback, straight into the battlefield.

At the end of the war, Laslow returns to Ylisse. If he is married, his wife will accompany him. His daughter’s fate unknown. The lone exception is if he marries female Corrin, where he disappears for a short while, then inexplicably returns to Valla to rule alongside her.

Hidden Truths

Anankos' human form arrives in Ylisse after seeing the warriors of that world destroy the Fell Dragon, Grima. Anankos recruits Inigo as well as Severa and Owain to help save his world. He changes their appearances off screen and brings them to Valla in hopes of stopping his dragon half. He tasks them with finding his child but is unable to tell them his child's name or how to return to Valla. Inigo is given a new set of clothes and the pseudonym Laslow. As is revealed in Hidden Truths 2, he also gained the ability to invigorate allies through his dances. Laslow takes up Anankos' request and eventually travels to Nohr with Odin and Selena in hopes of finding Anankos' child. Eventually he becomes the retainer of Xander.

Personality

When Inigo was little, he was shyer and more timid than his mother, Olivia. However, after having talked to girls so often in order to build confidence, he developed a great interest in them. Unfortunately, this causes Inigo to flirt with most girls he comes across, with many rejecting him. He has a tendency to become crestfallen when girls reject him, or become teary-eyed and frustrated when Gerome and Brady unintentionally become chick magnets without even trying. Note that those two tendencies are completely absent when concerning his daughter in Fates, Soleil. He can often be seen trying to lift the spirits of those around him. Inigo exudes a hyper-smiley and carefree attitude to keep from showing the world any weakness, and so that his friends can see him as a beacon of hope. Contrary to what he himself does, he often tries to get others to open up about their problems to him so that he can help them with whatever is bothering them, and alleviate their stress. Inigo dreams of becoming a dancer much like his mother, but is embarrassed to do so, even in front of her Awakening world counterpart (initially).

In Fates, despite still being a flirt and very shy, he is shown to have become more subdued and mature. Often times he uses flirting as a pretense to build stronger bonds between him and his comrades, rather than just shallowly chasing skirts. He is also considerably wiser, often giving advice to those in need, like with Felicia and Mozu. Most of his supports show a surprisingly sad and introspective side to him, likely due to homesickness. In his supports with the Avatar he laments not being able to see people he considers friends again after they suddenly die as a consequence of war. He teaches the Avatar to treasure each moment as most do gems, because the people you spend time with can be gone in the blink of an eye, and it’s important to value what time you do have with them.

After becoming a father to Soleil, Inigo begins to understand why his parents protected him with their lives, much like how he wishes to protect his own daughter. He is exceptionally loyal to Prince Xander, demonstrated by his declaration that protecting Xander came first, and then Nohr after. As well as him staying and potentially dying by Xander’s side in Birthright, rather than retreating and staying alive so he can see his friends again as Odin and Selena do.

It is also worth note that while in the Awakening DLC Death's Embrace, he mentions hardly feeling anything while fighting real people anymore. Later, in the world of Fates, while in his support with Peri he shows he has gotten much better at feeling empathy for his enemies, much like when he first travelled to the world of Awakening. Going out of his way to make sure he never forgets that even his enemies have friends and loved ones that would mourn their deaths, rather than tuning it out for peace of mind as many other soldiers do. He later tries to teach Peri to do the same thing.

In both Awakening and Fates, he is the biggest night owl out of everyone in the army.

Inheritance from Olivia

Inigo cannot be re-classed into the following class sets, but it is possible for him to inherit a skill from them.

Overall

Secret Book (Artwork).png
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.
Base Class

Inigo's starting class is Mercenary which nicely complements the growths he gains as a base growth rates from Olivia. He inherits Olivia's strong Speed, Skill, Luck growths allowing him to double and activate skills when needed. However, he slightly suffers from a low Defense and Resistance growth but like Olivia, his evasiveness makes damage only a problem if he is hit by chance. Starting off as a Mercenary starts him off with Armsthrift which helps to preserve his weapons and, with his high luck growth, in his promoted classes, Inigo's weapons become virtually unbreakable, making him a good candidate for Forged and Regalia Weapons. All in all, Inigo is a great unit and depending on his Father, they can either cover up his flaws or enhance his strengths.

His base class promotes into the Hero and Bow Knight classes. Like his base class, both classes build off of his stat growth inheritances. Hero is a good option to capitalize a direct, offensive approach, fighting with Swords and Axes. He will learn Sol at Level 5, helping to regenerate health if he ever takes a hit. If he does not inherit the Dark Knight or War Monk class from his father, this is his only Health Regenerative skill. Axebreaker is learned at 15, perfect to take down Axe wielders. Bow Knight has comparatively lower strength, speed, skill, and defensive growths. However, he will specialize with Bows instead, allowing him to either be a direct or indirect fighter when needed. He also gains a larger movement range compared to being a Hero. The only notable skill gained the Bowbreaker skill which can help him dodge Snipers.

Maternal Inheritance
  • Olivia: Inigo's mother is truly unique because she has access to the exclusive Dancer Class, but Inigo is not blessed with the Dancer class himself. He can inherit the Dancer's Luck +4 skill from her, but this skill is more short term as there are better skills for him to learn from his mother. Luckily, Olivia has a female-only class set as one of her reclasses. Her Pegasus Knight base allows Inigo to inherit the Galeforce skill, which increases his map clearing abilities and is generally the best skill for him to inherit from her. Inigo's two reclassing that he will always have regardless of whom his father is will be the Myrmidon and Barbarian classes. Myrmidon will complement his high speed and skill like his mother and is worth considering if Inigo has a good father. Vantage, Astra, and Swordfaire are useful in Inigo's base class promotions if he does not remain a Myrmidon related class. Lethality can be considered but the unreliability of its low activation (without Rightful King) may not be desired and Pass is a good situational skill, but only if Inigo is swarmed and needs to escape. The Barbarian class as well as the Berserker class ups his strength and speed in exchange for defenses, ensuring that Inigo hits hard. Warrior is a little more balanced but relies on Axes and Bows instead. All in all, most Barbarian skills are good for initial training, as well as the skills Counter, Wrath, and Axefaire. Despoil can also build nicely off of his high luck for easy gold if needed.

Overall

Base Class

In Conquest, Laslow joins only two chapters after his fellow mercenary, Selena, and his high bases ensure that he will be on equal or better footing than her. Laslow's growths allow him to be a highly competent unit, with high growths in HP, Strength, Skill and Luck, and risky but decent growths in Speed, Defense and Resistance. Solidifying him as a high damage dealer with enough strength and skill to deal heavy damage and activate skills frequently. While his defense and resistance are fairly low, his high HP and decent speed ensures that he will not be one-rounded by most units, and his high Luck helps his Avoid. In Revelations, due to Xander's late joining time, and barely improved base stats, Laslow and the other retainers will have to grind quite a bit to become salvageable units, though he remains the same growth-wise. Due to his lackluster speed, its advisable to pair him up in battle with somebody who gives him a speed boost. Notably, Selena, Felicia, Charlotte and Hana are available for this purpose.

As a Mercenary, Laslow starts off with the Strong Riposte and Good Fortune skills. The former allows Laslow to deal +4 damage on the enemy phase, covering up his mediocre speed and making him a better powerhouse on enemy turns. Good Fortune is a regenerative skill, giving Laslow a Luck% chance of recovering 20% of his max HP. While not incredibly reliable, it is nonetheless a useful boost that will activate relatively frequently with his high Luck.

The Mercenary's two promotions are the Hero and Bow Knight classes. In the Hero class, Laslow's growths are barely changed, with less resistance being the only difference. This class further emphasizes Laslow's well-roundedness as a unit, and is probably his best final class. As a Hero, he stands to learn Sol and Axebreaker. The former is a regenerative skill that allows Laslow a Skill% chance to recover HP on an attack equal to half the damage he inflicted. Given his high Skill, this will activate fairly frequently, and is recommended to have a place on his skillset. Axebreaker is not as useful for him, as his primary weapon, swords, already have an advantage over axes. However, it is still quite useful for dealing with enemy axe users, whose high strength can make Laslow susceptible to more damage taken. As a Bow Knight, Laslow's growths are all reduced, bar speed and resistance, but the class offers more mobility and versatility with Bows. In this class, Laslow stands to learn the Rally Skill and Shurikenbreaker skills. Rally Skill offers Laslow an opportunity to further become a supportive unit, as it stacks with his Fancy Footwork skill. Shurikenbreaker on the other hand, allows Laslow to be more capable of crippling enemy Master Ninjas, especially on Conquest, where they litter the route and can cripple Laslow with their debuffing abilities.

Compared to his fellow Mercenary, Selena, Laslow will have higher stats, except for Speed, Defense and Resistance.

Secondary Class

Laslow's secondary class is the Ninja class. Though this class may seem tempting, it is best to allow him to level up in his base class and his promotions before reclassing him, as the Ninja class greatly reduces his HP, Strength and Defense, but gives him a needed boost to Speed and Resistance. Overall, Laslow performs fairly well in the Ninja class line, and his Skill growth is unchanged, ensuring that he will still frequently activate his Skill-based skills.

In the Ninja class, Laslow will learn the Locktouch and Poison Strike abilities. The former is not very useful unless a lock-picker is needed, as Kaze and Niles already fulfill this role on Conquest. Poison Strike is a reliable debuffing skill that reduces 20% of the enemy's HP if Laslow initiated the battle, further crippling enemies who he cannot one-round with his mediocre Speed. The Ninja's two promotions are the Master Ninja and Mechanist classes. In the Master Ninja class, Laslow regains his use of swords, allowing him a second weapon for more versatility. He stands to learn the Lethality and Shurikenfaire skills in this class. Lethality is fairly unreliable on most units, due to its low activation rate. Laslow stands a chance of activating this skill fairly frequently, however. Shurikenfaire is not needed unless the player plans on keeping him in a Shuriken-wielding class. In the Mechanist class, Laslow can learn Golembane, which is only truly useful in Chapter 21, and Replicate, allowing him to split into a copy of himself and double-team enemies that he may not be able to one-round.

Friendship Class Sets
  • Xander: Xander bestows the Cavalier class on Laslow.
  • Odin: Odin will give Laslow the Dark Mage class. He won't be able to perform very well due to his limited Magic, but the skills can be pretty useful. It's recommended to go the Dark Knight way if Laslow gets this class, since it'll let him retain the use of swords.
  • Keaton: Keaton gives Laslow the Fighter class. HP +5, Gamble, and Axefaire are all solid skills to take if you want a combat-focused Laslow, but the true prize from this friendship is Rally Strength. This stacks with Laslow's personal skill, allowing him to become an incredibly potent rally-bot. Since no other friendship gives him a rally skill, this is unquestionably his best friendship if you want to make him a support unit.
  • Saizo: Unlike the others, Saizo does not bestow Inigo a new Friendship Class set since Laslow already has the Ninja class. If you go for their supports make sure to Friendship Seal ONLY from Saizo's side, since Saizo can still obtain Mercenary but Laslow himself will not gain anything.
Partner Class Sets
  • Female Corrin: Female Corrin is unique in that she can give him near any class in the game, save for a few (Songstress, Kitsune and Wolfskin). This will be good if you want to give Laslow a Hoshidan class that he can't access - save for Ninja (natural reclass), Sky Knight (given by Azura and Selena), Samurai (from Hana) or Diviner (from Orochi). Such classes include Monk, Lance Fighter, Archer, etc.
  • Azura/Selena: Azura and Selena both give Laslow access to the Sky Knight classline. Rally Speed is the core prize for a rally-bot Laslow, as it can stack with Laslow's personal skill to give his allies an extremely potent offensive buff. If you want him to take a more offensive role, Darting Blow helps patch up his shaky speed while Warding Blow can help him destroy mages on player phase.
  • Felicia/Elise: Gives Laslow the Troubadour classline.
  • Mozu: Gives Laslow the Archer classline.
  • Camilla/Beruka: Gives Laslow the Wyvern Rider classline.
  • Effie: Gives Laslow the Knight classline.
  • Nyx: Same as Odin.
  • Charlotte: Same as Keaton.
  • Peri: Same as Xander.
  • Hana: Gives Laslow the Samurai classline.
  • Orochi: Gives Laslow the Diviner classline.

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.
Base Set

Laslow was among the initial set of Sword Infantry Heroes in the earliest days of Heroes. He struggled to separate himself from his fellow swordsmen due to having a strong Atk and physical bulk, but lacking in Spd and low magical bulk. Without expensive investments, he was nowhere near the level of units released long after him. But as is with many of the Book I 3-4* units, the Weapon Refinery system was especially kind to him as it propelled him from among the most forgettable units to an incredibly potent unit for reasons explained below.

Laslow carried a Silver Sword which has no effect other than being the non-preferred sword with the highest Mt. Once he received his namesake Laslow's Blade, he gained the powerful buffing effect. If either he uses a supportive skill onto an ally or an ally uses an supportive skill on him, he grants a +4 Atk/Spd/Def/Res buff to himself and that ally as well as allies within two spaces of his partner. The massive boost is already potent, but when refined, if there are at least two allies within two spaces of himself who have a total of at least 10 bonus stats on them, he not only gains a +3 more Atk/Def during combat and also will automatically apply two attacks, regardless of the turn.

Noontime heals himself based on 30% of the damage he inflicted on his opponent. While he hits hard enough to warrant a decent recovery, due to it being based on the total that he actually inflicted rather than what he theoretically could have inflicted if he hits harder than what his target's current HP was when it activated, the healing is often inconsistent. Axebreaker stops any axe unit from doubling him while ensuring his own double. With his color advantage and high Atk, this is often a non-factor for most of his Axe matchups other than to ensure a double against some bulky axe units like Hector or Sheena. Hone Speed is an excellent budget Skill C as it buffs adjacent ally Spd by 4 at the start of his phase.

Counters

Laslow grants visible buffs to his allies so inflicting them with Ploys will not only depower them, but also remove his weapon's effects. Blues with high enough bulk can easily take care of him by tanking a hit or two before retaliating through their color advantage. Because of the nature of his weapon, he requires extensive unit positioning to get its full effect, and is thus requires much more consideration to bring him to his pinnacle, which can be exploited by players when facing an enemy Laslow by isolating him. Firesweep Weapons and Dazzling Staff units who can completely stop him from retaliating instead turns him into a stubborn wall than a dangerous tank, the latter type is strong enough to exploit his lower Res.

Skill Inheritance

[Reposition]] is a must to get his blade effects going on his own and is a given. Moonbow to ignore 20% of his opponent's Def while Bonfire takes his base 30 (33 with his blade in effect]] and applies a base 17 true damage to his attacks.

Distant Counter allows him to take on problematic ranged units to make engaging him as hard as possible. Vantage ensures that his attacks goes first and scores the double attack sometimes without giving his opponent the opportunity to attack him as with an Atk asset and his blade active alone, he will attack with a guaranteed 57 base. While his skill C is flexible, Pulse Smoke and its ability to slow down his enemy's special cooldown emboldens him as a tank while Defense Smoke, a much more affordable skill, inflicts a Def -7 penalty on opponents within two spaces of himself at the start of his turn.

Etymology

The name "Inigo" likely comes from indigo, the sixth color of the rainbow and a cross between blue and purple. In the Japanese version, "Azur" likely comes from azure, also a variation of blue, possibly in reference to his armor. The name Inigo on its own however, means “my little love”.

"Laslow" seems to be a corruption of the name László, a Hungarian name which means "one who commands glory" or “glorious ruler”, it's also phonetically similar to "lazuli". "Lazward" is likewise a Persian word that means blue and might be the origin of the word "lazurite", which refers to the main component of the blue-colored semi-precious stone "lapislazuli".

Inigo's name could possibly be based on the character Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride. Inigo's name choice coincidentally relates to Inigo Montoya's famous quote—"You killed my father. Prepare to die"—considering that his parents were killed in his timeline. In English-speaking countries, "Inigo" is a variant of "Íñigo", which is a common Spanish name as English-speaking countries do not use the "ñ" character.

Trivia

  • Soleil, Inigo, and Olivia all have their birthdays in the month of August (the 31st, 7th, and 20th, respectively).
  • Inigo's birthday is the same day that Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon was first released in Japan.
  • In the beginning of Paralogue 6, Inigo is seen saving a villager whom he calls "buttercup". This is a reference to the character Inigo Montoya from the movie "The Princess Bride" who similarly helps to save a Princess named Buttercup through the use of his gallant swordplay.
  • His supports with Odin reference the Harvest Scramble and fourth CD drama (both from Awakening). As well as the events of their support conversations from the same game.
  • His support with his mother has him say that a friend of hers gave her the advice to talk to people of the opposite sex for confidence. One of Olivia’s supports reveals this to be… Maribelle!
  • In the Hot Spring Scramble DLC from Awakening, Inigo mentions a fondness for souvenirs and mementos. In Fates his mercenary outfit has one of his mother’s dancing rings, and his daughter wears his mother’s headband.
  • Laslow’s supports with Soleil reveal he has trouble blocking diagonal attacks from behind.
  • In the Japan-exclusive Nohrian festival, he gives Xander a blue-ish stone to remember him by. It’s implied to be the same blue-hued stone he picked up in his conversation with Robin from the Hot Spring Scramble DLC.
  • His casual mode retreat quote may be a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as there is a knight that says "It's just a flesh wound."
  • Inigo's official artwork depicts him wielding a Silver Sword.
  • Inigo is one of two children to have their official artwork depict themselves with a different hair color than their determinate parent. The other is Kjelle.
  • If Chrom is Inigo's father, the latter will have the Brand of the Exalt in his right eye - opposite of his sister Lucina. He reveals this to Chrom in Inigo's paralogue if Chrom recruits him. Interestingly, the Brand does not appear in his critical cut-ins or confession scene. This is possibly because it would be extra artwork for a minor variation that would be difficult to see in the critical cut-ins.
    • Inigo is the only potential secondary child of Chrom that mentions any presence of a Brand of the Exalt on them. Neither Cynthia, Kjelle, Brady, nor Male Morgan mention having a Brand on them.
  • There is a translation mistake in Inigo's EXPonential Growth battle quote. He calls the Entombed "Mummies", their Japanese name.
  • If Morgan or Lucina are his sister, his relationship event tile will be the same as if he was talking to a male character.
  • Inigo came 6th in Awakening's official popularity poll and 9th in Fates official popularity poll for male characters.
  • Inigo, as Laslow, is the only Awakening character in Fates who is actually killed if the player defeats him in Birthright; Odin and Selena both retreat instead.
  • His quote in the final chapter of Awakening, before the defeat of Grima, reveals his greatest fear is dying alone.
  • He mentions during his support with Kjelle, that his favorite type of cake is lemon with chocolate frosting.
  • As a ”Festival Flower” unit in Heroes, Inigo makes a reference to his sibling support with Lucina if Chrom is his father. “ Do you...think these eggs might hatch into bugs? I'd sooner die loveless and alone than see that happen!"
  • Laslow’s My Room entrance quote reveals that he occasionally reads excerpts from Odin’s journals.
  • In a support conversation with Orochi as Laslow in Fates, he mentions "something that produced flames of different colors", which is a reference to a support conversation between Laurent and Miriel.
  • In Fates, if you give Laslow certain accessories he will react to them. Giving him the Awakening Shield has him question why he would be given it because he can't perform the Awakening Ritual; giving him Lucina's Mask has him remark how nostalgic the mask is; giving him the Bear Hat has him complaining about the stench and he questions if he really has to put it on; and finally giving him the Dragon Feather has him mention that this item brings forth unpleasant feelings.
  • In his A support with Camilla it is revealed that he sings as well as he dances, though his main focus is still on dancing.
  • Laslow's B Support with Saizo in Revelation has him reference how he lost similar ‘contests’ to Gerome and Brady in their supports in Awakening.
  • His C support with Odin contains several references
    • Odin gives him the epithet "Laslow of the Azure Sky" while Laslow asks to be called "Laslow of the Indigo Sky." Both names are references to his Japanese and English names in Awakening.
    • Laslow mentions that he has a sword that he named "Dancing Blade". This naming seems to reference Marth's side special move in the Super Smash Bros. series. A sword also exists named "Laslow's Blade" that could be the sword in question, and given it increases the users speed seems to support the reference.
  • He shares his English voice actor in Fire Emblem Heroes, Mick Wingert, with Jeorge and Abel.
  • He shares his English voice actor, Liam O'Brien, with Izana and Zola in Fire Emblem Fates.
  • In Fire Emblem Warriors, Inigo is brought up in two support conversations between Olivia.
    • In her A+ support conversation with Owain, he briefly mentions that Olivia is kinder than "he" said, indicating Inigo.
    • In her A+ support conversation with Xander, Inigo/Laslow is brought up by Xander who mentions that Olivia reminds Xander of Laslow.
