“Certainly, Captain. I'd be happy to. We'll neutralize anyone in your way. You can count on me, sir.”
—Kyza in Radiant Dawn

Kyza (Kysha in the PAL region game versions) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. They take on the role of a Laguz officer, serving under the command of Ranulf. Kyza is a superior officer to Lyre, and keeps her from acting out against others, alongside fighting over Ranulf's attention with her.


Kyza is a rather dutiful and loyal individual, but is perceived to be boring, stiff, and humorless by others around them. They are essentially the polar opposite of Lyre, with their differences repeatedly leading to heated arguments breaking out on a regular basis especially when competing for Ranulf's attention. Despite these feuds, Kyza and Lyre are close friends. Kyza tries to resolve conflicts within the army, calming Lyre down after Shinon offended her with bigoted slurs, and apologizing to Shinon on her behalf.

Despite their normally serious and formal demeanor, when around close friends, their behavior changes, talking and acting in a more feminine way.

Kyza has an obsession with their superior officer, Ranulf, and repeatedly tries to gain his attention.

Kyza, much like Lyre, has poor Base Stats but high growth rates. Both are poor starting out and may be chosen over the other Beast Laguz because they are easy to use and train. However, the other beast Laguz have very poor growth rates, but much better base stats. To make the best of them, follow the same strategy as Lyre: Blossom + Paragon. Bear in mind that Laguz gain much more experience when untransformed, just tapping an enemy netting a fair amount of EXP. Utilizing this can help Kyza and Lyre catch up to other Laguz faster and help make the most out of Blossom, though keep in mind the vulnerability of Laguz while untransformed.
