“Thank you, I'll do my best. By the way, what's your name?”

Laylea is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the substitute character of Lene if Silvia was not paired up. She is the sister of Charlot, despite not having any knowledge of it. Laylea is able to initiate a unique conversation of her own, which will result in her acquiring the Barrier Blade.


Laylea shares similar character traits with Lene, as the major part of their dialogues are shared. She is honest and sometimes cynical, with a realistic world view. She's also shown caring towards her friends, abhorring the idea of abandonment.

Laylea also has a somewhat fiery personality, and is unwilling to back down or kowtow to men.

Laylea is slightly more sultry than Lene is, as can be seen from her adult-like design, complete with a curvy body, large breasts, and a mature face.

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.

Laylea may be easier to use than Lene is, due to the fact that she possesses Charm, a skill that Lene will never learn. As Dancers are generally not made for combat, stat growths are thus irrelevant in that regard. The only advantages that Lene has over Laylea is that she is able to inherit the Leg Ring and Knight Ring from her mother, alongside superior defensive abilities and the Miracle skill. Laylea, on the other hand, will have to buy the two rings in order to really be useful as a Dancer.

It is ultimately up to the player's discretion as to whom to select as their dancer unit in Generation 2. Laylea would be the better choice of the two, should the player opt to have their dancer unit play a supportive role.


In Chapter 7, Laylea can talk to Seliph, but nothing will happen.

In Chapter 7, if Laylea visits a certain Village south of Leonster, she will initiate a conversation with Anna, in which Laylea will receive the Barrier Blade.

In Chapter 9, Laylea can talk to Charlot, resulting in him gaining one point of luck.

Love GrowthsEdit

Original and replacement characters have the same love growths unless stated otherwise.
