Papa/Mama, I have to say one more thing before we leave. ...Rrrgh rawrggh rrh! That's dragon for "I love you!"”
—Kana joining Corrin's army in Paralogue 2

Kana is a playable child character in Fire Emblem Fates. They are the child of Corrin who is the opposite gender of them.

Profile[]

Kana is the child of Corrin and the grandchild of Mikoto. If Male Corrin is married to Azura, Female Kana will be Shigure's sister. Any other mother will leave Female Kana an only child. Male Kana can be the brother of all possible children except for Shigure. According to Male Kana's supports with his sibling, he is the youngest of all child units in Fates.

Shortly after being born, Kana was placed in the Deeprealms for their safety so they could be raised free from the war between Hoshido and Nohr. From time to time, Corrin and their spouse would come over and visit to make sure that Kana was okay. After several years in the Deeprealms, Kana grew excited when they learned that Corrin was going to pay them a visit on one particular day.

In Kana's Paralogue, their excitement for Corrin's visit is cut short by a sudden attack by invisible invaders. However, as fate would have it, Corrin arrives just in time to save them. Corrin tells them to flee to safety, but the enemy invaders are too much for them to handle. Kana refuses to leave, and in their rage of seeing Corrin hurt, degenerates into a Feral Dragon, revealing that they inherited their parents' transformation ability. Corrin is not given much time to recover from the news as more reinforcements show up. The enemy invaders are quickly routed before Kana can fully degenerate. If the player does not clear the Invisible forces by Turn 8, the Bandit Twins, Lloyd and Llewelyn, appear on the battlefield seeking to capture Kana as a pet and are swiftly dealt with (either killed or captured) as well.

With the enemies dispatched, Azura helps to calm Kana with special song, reverting them to their human form. Kana believes that Corrin will be upset by their sudden rage, but they instead express amazement and pride. However, they warn Kana that without a Dragonstone, which Azura crafted one for them, they could lose themselves once more. Although Corrin does not want them to come along because of their youth, Kana's fear of them never returning again if trouble occurs again convinces Corrin to allow them to join them on their journey.

In their default ending, Kana becomes revered as a dragon god incarnate.

Heirs of Fate[]

In the Heirs of Fate DLC, both versions of Kana appear as separate individuals and playable main characters alongside Shigure. Both of them wield different forms of Yato. In the first chapter, Female Kana joins with the Hoshidan children to fight Invaders, while Male Kana takes dragon form and joins the Nohrian children to escape Invaders in the second.

In the first Xenologue, Female Kana cries because she was not strong enough to fight alongside her father, and fears that he may have been killed. She bumps into Mitama and Selkie, who are experiencing the same problems as her. while in the midst of conversing, the three are ambushed by invisible soldiers and decide to retreat, since they are outmatched. They soon find Kiragi and Hisame fighting off two more invaders.

The three then converse with them. Suddenly, Fujin Yumi starts reacting with Yato, which turns into Noble Yato. With it, Female Kana is able to fight back against the invaders. After the battle, one Invader flees from the battlefield, and Kana starts to chase them when a spirit appears before her, telling her not to. Kana, Mitama and Selkie somewhat recognize the spirit, but they are unable to identify it. The spirit notices Kana's Yato and explains the several forms of the blade to her. When the spirit asks Kana if she has transformed into a dragon before, she says that is not the case. The spirit gives a Dragonstone to Kana and explains its uses before leaving.

Meanwhile, Dwyer and Sophie attempt to calm down Male Kana, who has transformed into a dragon, to no avail. Forrest, Nina, and Ophelia are wandering when they hear Kana's roar and find several invisible soldiers surrounding him. During the resulting battle, the group manages to escape from a Vallite ambush, and Kana returns to his human form; he reveals that invisible soldiers attacked his parents, similarly to those of the other children. Kana's Yato reacts with Forrest's Brynhildr and becomes Grim Yato. Suddenly, all of the children forget who Kana is, much to his confusion. However, Kana notices a spirit, who gives him a Dragonstone to control his impulses.

Kiragi and Female Kana later join Shiro's group and block the enemy attacks. Afterwards, the Hoshidan children retreat to a safer location. During this time, Shiro's Raijinto reacts with Kana's Noble Yato and turns it into Blazing Yato.

Male Kana later joins up with the rest of the Nohrian children and tries to fight, but Grim Yato is not strong enough to match Female Kana's Blazing Yato. Siegbert offers his assistance to Kana, and Grim Yato turns into Shadow Yato after it reacts with Siegfried. Kana uses it to attack Female Kana, and for a few seconds, it shows the true identity of both sides. This confuses and surprises them before the illusion resets.

Afterwards, both Kana's transform into dragons. Siegbert and Forrest attempt to calm Male Kana down, but are stopped when Shigure intervenes.

After the two groups are separated from one another, both Kana's despair over the divide because the Fire Emblem cannot be forged from either version of Yato, making defeating Anankos' seemingly an impossible task. Once they finally reach Anankos' palace, the two Kana's attempt to turn their respective Yato's into the Fire Emblem. Shigure uses his song to sap the group's strength, declaring that Yatos' final form will not be needed and teleports them away.

While they are facing Anankos, the two Kanas forge the Fire Emblems. Following this, they enter a battle against Anankos and resurrected forms of each child's parents.

A final scene shows the two Kanas sitting together, and Shigure using the arranged greeting.

Personality[]

In general, Kana's personality is most comparable to that of most children; constantly cheerful, having a big imagination and being extremely enthusiastic. They tend to be highly emotional, and while they dislike being treated as a child, they similarly dislike the idea of growing up. Kana absolutely adores Corrin and aspires to be like them. They adopt many of their mannerisms and habits, such as walking barefoot, being perpetually optimistic, and apologizing after attacking. They are also more clever than they let on, just like Corrin, and are not above using people's preconceived notions of their innocence to hide it, although this is only revealed in Female Kana's S-support with Dwyer. Although they are naturally cheerful, happy, and frank, they have a dislike of being alone.

Their personalities are somewhat different depending on gender.

Male Kana feels more of a need to prove himself, though he still tries to help in any way he can. Male Kana often feels annoyed because he feels that his mother treats him like a child even though he wants to help her, as seen in his Supports with his father. He seems to have inherited some of her traits as well, such as having a way with animals, as he manages to tame Avel and get along with Ace in his Supports with Sophie and Percy, while having some talents of his own, such as drawing, in his Supports with Shiro.

Female Kana loves to help others in anyway she can, especially her father. She is particularly prone to crying in an instant. Female Kana's loneliness is actually crippling enough that she cries whenever she's alone, as shown in her supports with Forrest, but she nonetheless tries to keep up a cheerful demeanor in front of the rest of the army. As said above, she's aware that some people see her as ditzy and uses it to her advantage, like when she tricks Dwyer into realizing and admitting that he's been acting like a jerk, or when she gets back sneakily at Velouria after they have a fight.

They are the most fond of transforming out of all the shapeshifters in the army.

Base Class[]

Kana has the most variety in their stat growths and caps depending on the Boon and Bane chosen for Corrin at the start of the game, alongside their ability to S-Support any opposite gender characters, including non-marriageable first generation units and other children characters. Unless the player wants to create a Kana to fulfill a specific role, the overall end result of any Kana is rather mixed. Kana always inherits and starts off as a Nohr Prince/ss, starting them off with both Nobility to boost their experience gain and Dragon Fang for a solid attacking skill. Kana, upon recruitment, already comes equipped with a Dragonstone which carries the same benefits and risks Corrin has when using it. However, Kana gains an extra incentive to use their dragonstone as their personal skill, Draconic Heir, grants them a 15% HP regen whenever they have it equipped at the start of the player's turn. Due to this skill, and with other HP regeneration skills, they can recover upwards to 95% of their maximum HP per turn, making them a powerful option for a tank that can fully recover almost all of their health if they are not killed. Like Corrin, Kana needs to be cautious of Wyrmslayer and Dragon Spirit-wielding units as they deal effective damage against them, regardless of their current class. If Corrin is married to Kaden, Keaton, Velouria or Selkie, Kana will also need to be wary of Beast Killer, Hunter's Knife and Beastbane using units regardless of their current class.

The Nohr Prince/ss has two promotions; Nohr Noble and Hoshido Noble. Nohr Noble is only accessible in Conquest and Revelation. It gives them access to tomes/scrolls for a ranged magical option. The class' skills revolve around offensive presence with Draconic Hex to reduce the stats of enemies that engage them and Nohrian Trust, giving them access to their partner's skills during battle. Hoshido Noble is only accessible in Birthright and Revelation and focuses on supportive tactics highlighted by their new usage of Staves and Rods. Dragon Ward gives adjacent allies the chance to shave off damage and Hoshidan Unity helps boost their skill activation rates. While playing Conquest and Birthright cements them into a particular role due to the route exclusivity of their promotions, Revelation allows the player to decide their ultimate final class to suit whatever playstyle they desire from them.

Inheritance[]

In essence, due to Corrin's ability to befriend all other units, marry any opposite-gendered spouse they desire, and choose any non-special class as their secondary, Kana has a wide range of classes to either finish as or access to nearly every skill in the game with some help from either the player's own marriage, friendship seal set ups, or through help from the Unit Logbook. It should be noted however that access to Kitsune requires Corrin to marry Kaden or Selkie, Wolfskin requires their marriage to either Keaton or Velouria, and Female Kana has direct access to Villager from Mozu. However, Azura's Songstress cannot be passed down. Overall, Kana can make a great taskmaster, though some player manipulations may be required to achieve a certain result.

Etymology[]

Kanna can have multiple meanings in Japanese depending on the characters used, such as, Kanna (鉋), meaning "Japanese Plane" or Kanna (環奈) meaning "Ringing Beauty" or "A Beautiful Ring", which could be a reference to their sweet, gentle and kind nature, as well as their cry in their dragon form or call to their parents.

It also may be based on a Canna, which is a type of flower that grows in the summer.

Kana's localized name, when read as "カナ" in Japanese, are the last two symbols that form the word "katakana" (カタカナ), which is the more angular form of kana (仮名) used in Japanese, primarily used for words of foreign origin. Which possibly references the foreign names of Nohr and the Japanese names of Hoshido.

Another origin for Kanna's name is that the name as well as Japanese name of Kanna's parent, Kamui, is a nod to Kanna Kamuy, a dragon-based Ainu god of thunder and storm.

Trivia[]

  • Kana's birthday is the same day that Fire Emblem Awakening was first released in Japan.
  • Male Kana is the third playable male character who can use Dragonstones after the Male Corrin and Bantu.
  • Kana is the second dragon-blooded character that can freely shapeshift parts of their body into their dragon forms, including changing their body parts in different ways like shifting their hand into a sharp spear or a dragon like mouth that they can shoot their dragonbreath. Corrin is the first to possess this ability.
  • Both Kanas share their Japanese voice actors, Nobunaga Shimazaki and Satomi Sato, with Fates' Corrin.
    • In Fates, Female Kana shares her English voice actress, Danielle Judovits, with Mitama as well as one of the female Corrin's voice sets. In Heroes, she shares her other English voice actress, Eden Riegel (credited as Claudia Lenz) with Awakening's Sumia and Nah, as well as Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's Genny.
  • Kana was voted as the 32nd most popular male character and the 34th most popular female character on Nintendo's official Fates character poll.
  • Female Kana came in 56th place for females and 99th place out of 791th in the Heroes Choose Your Legends popularity poll with 2,837 votes. Male Kana came in 79th place for males and 191th place out of 791th with 1,380 votes.
  • In the English version, unlike Morgan, who had several of their supports end romantically, Kana's S-supports may end platonically, rather than romantically, likely due to (the localization's interpretation) their young age, (with the exception of Selkie and Kiragi). Their platonic S supports include: Rhajat, Shiro, Velouria, Caeldori, Sophie and Hisame. However, the Hubba Tester and Compatibility will still retain the marriage lines.
  • Corrin's and Kana's dragon roars are changed in the international release to generic dragon roars (specifically the sounds that, Minerva, Cherche's wyvern, makes in some of her supports).
  • Though Kana's support dialogue with their mother is the same regardless of gender, the flowers shown to her mother differs in color depending on who her mother is and what hair color, special trait or important role they may have, with one of the exceptions being Sakura, as she is shown her namesake flower.
    • Another case is when Male Kana shows Corrin a white flower field, which is based on her default hair color, regardless of what the player has chosen.
  • Female Kana is unable to unequip a Bath Towel in the international version of Fates. However, it is optional in the Japanese version.
  • Similarity to Male and Female Morgan in Awakening, the Kanas are the only characters in Fates, to not have a confession scene, since they are the children of Corrin, however they still have the Private Quarters model.
  • In the Heirs of Fate DLC, Kana inherits the Yato from Corrin.
  • Both genders of Kana are capable of learning or inheriting the most amount of skills in Fates with 107 out of 108 non-DLC skills. However, this is impossible in a single playthrough without the assistance of the Unit Logbook.
    • Male Kana has the most amount of learnable skills out of all characters in Fates with a grand total of 139 skills when DLC skills are included. Female Kana has the second with 134 learnable skills when including DLC skills.
  • If Corrin achieves an S-support with Kaden, Keaton, Selkie or Velouria, then the resulting Kana will be able to use both Dragonstones and Beaststones (albeit in different classes). They are one of the four units in the game to possibly have this ability, along with Selkie and Velouria.
  • Male Kana is one of two playable male characters voiced by a woman in the English version of a Fire Emblem game. The other is Awakening's Libra (who, unlike Kana, was played by a woman in both the Japanese and English versions).
    • This makes Male Kana is the only playable male character to be voiced by a female in the English version of Fates (Anthony, an NPC from the Revelation route was also voiced by a female).
      • And this also makes the only instance where a male character was originally voiced by a male voice actor in the Japanese version, but played by a female voice actress in the English version (unlike Morgan, who was voiced by a male voice actor in both the Japanese and English versions of Awakening).
  • Kana shares the same critical/skill activation battle quote, "This ends now!", with Corrin and Gunter in Fates.
    • Furthermore, Kana also shares the same phrase "You won't stop me!" and "I won't surrender!" with Corrin, due to being parent and child. However, regardless of path chosen, Kana does not use any phrases such as "For Hoshido!", "For Nohr!", and "I make my own fate!". This make Kana the only playable character with the fewest set of critical/skill activation quotes in Fates, with the set of three.
  • If Corrin marries either Odin or Ophelia, Kana will be descended from the First Exalt, as well as being part of the Altean Royal Lineage.
