—Larum to Douglas in a support conversation
Larum is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is a dancer and a member of the resistance forces against the Etrurian government. She is also the adopted daughter of Etruria's Great General, Douglas, as well as a potential love interest of Roy. If Elffin is recruited instead, she takes the role of the character who manages the Auguries.
She makes a brief cameo appearance in chapter 17 of the Hasha no Tsurugi manga.
Originally part of a group that was to be a mediator with Elffin, they came to participating in espionage against the enemy in order to return a favor to the Resistance that saved them.
A particularly boisterous and loud person, Larum tends to act very childish at times and scream and yell at inopportune times. She also has a huge crush on Roy, which she states on a regular basis. The only two people that tend to take Larum seriously are Douglas and Ogier, in which Larum responds by trying to impress her father and teasing Ogier, causing both to humour her actions in their own way.
Larum also often seems to be somewhat detached from reality, as she does not take much consideration into what she says or does and often daydreams out loud or acts out something she wishes would happen, as her B Support with Geese sees her acting out a fantasy she has of Roy rescuing her from 'the pirate', pretending to be both Roy and herself as she monologues, eventually prompting Geese to leave.
Larum also has an interest in cooking that is revealed in a couple of her supports, though she is apparently very bad at it (with Echidna refusing to even call it by that name.). The only two people who ever ate her cooking without complaint were Elffin and Douglas, though only the latter is able to eat it without any problems, as Echidna seems to be the only person to criticize Larum's cooking in front of her, with most people never doing so out of kindness.
If the player visits the house on the left or neither of them in Chapter 9, Larum automatically joins at the start of Chapter 11A.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
Larum is the A-route version of Elffin who does the same thing that he does, refresh units. Even though her stats are low, since you can just rescue drop her out of the way to keep her safe, her stats do not really matter.
As a Dancer or Bard can enable many interesting strategies, like having an extra Warp use, having a unit attack with a long range tome and use a status staff in the same turn, move further, and many more things, making her one of the most useful units in the game.
