“I am a knight of Pherae. I will carry out my duty and return safely.”

Isadora is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.


Isadora hails from a Pheraean noble household from the country side. From her youth, she desired to become a knight in service of Pherae, a dream she would eventually achieve, becoming Pherae's first and currently only female knight in its services. She eventually gained the attention of House Pherae itself, becoming the personal guard to Lady Eleanora. She is betrothed to fellow knight Harken.

Lord Elbert left Pherae to investigate mysterious developments in the region, taking Harken in town. When news returned, informing Eliwood that Elbert had been taken hostage and all of his accompanying knights had been slain, Isadora was ordered by Eliwood to continue to protect his mother while he left to investigate himself. The apparent demise of Harken weighed heavily on Isadora's heart. Later, when Eliwood sent a message to his mother of Elbert's demise, Isadora was sent by Eleanora to protect her son, eventually rendezvousing with his forces after their battle in Badon.

Isadora remains a part of Eliwood's forces for the remainder of his journey and can discover that Harken was the sole survivor of the ambush that lead to Elbert's capture. Seeing his suicidal desire to make amends for the death of Elbert, Isadora can be one of the individuals who can convince him to rejoin the service of House Pherae and protect Eliwood.

In the aftermath of Blazing Blade, Isadora returns to the service Eleanora where she served her dutifully. In her solo ending, she studied to be a proper Lady until she eventually married. Should she have rekindled her relationship, Isadora can wed Harken. She can also strike up an interest in Legault, but the two never follow through on this potential, eventually meeting on the battlefield as enemies in a future conflict. If she forms a bond with Renault, Isadora eventually commits herself to the church of Elimine, hoping to find answers in the clergy.


Isadora holds steadfast loyalty to house Pherae, in particular to Lady Eleanora. Though she is a believer of the Church of Elimine, she feels that her duties as a knight goes against the teachings of Elimine, even stating that she holds far too many "sins". Speaking to Renault, Isadora knows that her responsibilities as a knight and the things she has done as one are for good reasons. Yet, she deeply regrets the lives she has cut down in service to Pherae. Though she seeks vindication, Renault offers her none, simply telling her that her doubts make her human and she should use those doubts to discover an answer on her own, even if she may never find them.

Her relationship with Harken is both close and strained as she holds a deep love for him and his apparent demise caused her much sorrow. The revelation that he survived was both news of great joy, but also great pain. Having already "lost" him once, Isadora greatly fears that he could possibly leave her once more. Should the two rekindle their bond, Isadora weds Harken after the war with their bond a topic of envy for how strong their marrige is.

Isadora is a pre-promoted Paladin that joins the player's army in the chapter Kinship's Bond. As a pre-promote she will not have needed a rare Knight Crest to access her advanced class. Isadora's stats in Strength and Speed are notable for her join time and level, and alongside her high B rank in Lances and A rank in Swords give her a respectable starting offense against the enemies in her joining chapter and beyond. She also has the advantages of her class, as Paladin's high movement and mounted status allows her a high degree of maneuverability and potential utility that foot bound units do not have.

Isadora has a number of weaknesses however. She has mediocre physical durability for her joining level, with low base stats in HP and Defense. While her full use of the Weapon triangle will allow her to lessen the damage she will take from combat, she will remain the least durable of the paladins in the game overall. She also has a very low con stat of 6, which will cause her to lose Speed when wielding most weapons in the game. Her high Speed and the low Speed of enemies will nonetheless enable her to double attack reliably, but heavier weapons such as Axes will give her difficulties unless the player uses the rare Body Ring on her.

While Isadora has the least impressive long term prospects of the potential Paladins, especially those of Sain and Kent, her lack of a required investment and her well rounded class make her a solid filler unit in the player's army, and she can be used alongside the other Paladins if the player wishes.

'Isadora' means 'gift of Isis,' from the Egyptian goddess 'Isis' and the Greek 'doron' meaning 'gift.'

'Isadora' can also be a variant of Isolda, a fictional Irish princess who fell in love with an English knight, Tristain.


  • A villager describes Isadora as having "emerald eyes", though her eyes are actually blue.
  • Isadora and Harken are based off Midia and Astram, since Midia and Isadora are both blue-haired paladins who are in love with blonde heroes, Astram and Harken respectively.
  • If Lowen recruits Harken in Pale Flower of Darkness, during their recruitment talk Lowen will erroneously refer to her as "Isabella".
  • Isadora is the only female character able to use axes in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.
