==Profile==
Libra is a saint and war monk of [[Ylisse (Country)|Ylisse]] with a calm and composed nature; he joined the clergy after a painful life of neglect due to being abandoned by his parents. Even though he is often mistaken for a woman due to his adrogynous appearance, [[Virion]] discovers he is a man with a masculine side to him, as Virion tends to pay attention to the tiniest details. Being of religious nature, Libra often prays to the gods more than anyone in Chrom's group. His birthday is July 1st.
+
Libra is a saint and war monk of [[Ylisse (country)|Ylisse]] with a calm and composed nature. Having grown up abandoned by his parents, Libra was left with a literal scar on his neck, as revealed by his supports with [[Nowi]]. Due to his painful past, Libra developed a distrust of people and even [[wikipedia:Haphephobia|haphephobia]], or fear of being touched. While the details of his past are never made explicit, it is heavily implied that Libra seeks to atone for it, first by becoming a priest to help others, and then by lending his strength towards Emmeryn's rescue. This prompted him to join the Ylissean clergy.
   
Libra arrives at [[Plegia Castle]] in [[Emmeryn (Chapter)|Chapter 9]] just as [[Gangrel]] is about to execute [[Emmeryn]]. He fights his way and eventually encounters [[Chrom]] and asks to join his ranks to save the Exalt.
+
Hearing of [[Emmeryn]]'s impending execution, Libra and a group of his fellow clergymen head off to [[Plegia]] to rescue the Exalt. However, they are ambushed by the [[Grimleal]] along the way, where their numbers are depleted, leaving Libra as the sole survivor. He later arrives at [[Plegia Castle]] in [[Emmeryn (Chapter)|Chapter 9]], just as [[Gangrel]] is about to execute Emmeryn. Fighting through the Grimleal forces, Libra eventually encounters [[Chrom]] and requests to join his ranks to save the Exalt.
   
After the war, Libra builds an orphanage and watches over the children there for many years. He is courted by many women and men and is said to be the incarnation of [[Naga (character)|Naga]]
+
After the war, Libra builds an orphanage and watches over the children under his charge for many years. He is courted by many women and men, and is said to be the incarnation of [[Naga (character)|Naga]].
   
Libra's supports reveal that he somewhat hates who he is. His support with [[Sully]] reveals that he is empty inside. He talks about wanting to live a clergyman's life, being kind to everyone and praising the gods. Yet at the same time, he claims that there is a nagging feeling in his mind that tells him that this type of life isn't what he really wants. His support with [[Maribelle]] reveals that he had little faith for humanity until he saw Maribelle going through a trial record and siding with an abandoned orphan who stole from a noble. The event touched his heart greatly, and her words were "his salvation," possibly his salvation to continue living. His support with [[Tharja]] reveals that he wants to erase all traces of his past, so he volunteers for a memory manipulation experiment. The more Tharja tries to curse him, the more of his past is revealed, yet he feels like he is being saved instead of cursed. His support with the male [[Avatar (Awakening)|Avatar]] reveals that he is an extremely skilled artist and loves to paint, but never does requests.
+
==Personality==
  +
Libra is a kind man who presents as stoic and patient, almost to the point of being oracular; as a result of this, he puts others at ease and is very trustworthy, having a motherly and caring disposition acting protective of those around him, though his support with [[Gaius]] shows that even he has limits, and when the he keeps praying to the gods for superficial and materialistic reasons, Libra loses his usual demeanor and becomes angry with him, though he forgives and is still willing to teach how to pray. However, Libra is also somewhat detached from others and himself, feeling that his being a priest is only a substitution for a real identity, compounded by what [[Tharja]] can only describe as a horrifying dark side; one that he tries to suppress and veil, but is able to disturb even the likes of her with it. Truly, his supports with [[Tharja]] reveals that he wants to erase all traces of his past due to the unpleasantry of it, so much so that he feels like he is being saved instead of cursed.
  +
  +
Due to his reserved nature and lack of self worth, Libra somewhat hates who he is, revealing to [[Sully]] that he is empty inside, since while wanting to live a clergyman's life, be kind to everyone and praise the gods, at the same time, he believes that some part of him thinks that this type of life isn't what he really wants, while admitting to [[Maribelle]] that he had little faith for humanity until he saw her efforts for equality between nobles and commoners, claiming her words were "his salvation". As a result, he believes that he's a flawed human being whether regardless of his clergy, acknowledging to Gaius that fighting with the Shepherds means that he has to kill people and even if it's for the greater good, he isn't proud of these deeds.
  +
  +
Even though he is often mistaken for a woman due to his androgynous appearance, [[Virion]] discovers he is a man with a masculine side to him, as Virion tends to pay attention to the tiniest details. His support with [[Cherche]] also showcases his rather eccentric thought process, wherein he attempts to speak to and befriend a mole, both to Cherche's surprise and, unfortunately, no avail.
  +
  +
His support with [[Robin]] reveals that he is an extremely skilled artist and loves to paint, but never does requests and finds very little if any passion in his craft.
  +
  +
In his religious devotion, Libra often prays to the gods, leaving him with scabbier knees than anyone in the group.

====Overall====
  +
{{Subjective}}
  +
=====Base Class=====
  +
Libra plays the role of a typical pre-promoted unit with the initial high stats, providing immediate strength, but gradually falling behind other healers. On higher difficulties, Libra is more liable to stay useful owing to his higher starting stats and the tougher enemies, provided he is given enough experience. Either way he starts very solid with balanced stats, both strength and magic stats allowing him to be effective whether he's laying enemies low with his axe or healing with [[Healtouch]]. Libra has average growths, most of which are around 50% aside from a strong 90% for health. While he proves bulkier and offensively stronger than [[Lissa]] or [[Maribelle]] in the War Cleric role, his level-up boosts can get awkward and inconsistent, and his lack of specialization is largely what will cause him to fall behind in later chapters of the main story. Nonetheless, continuing to train him to pick up [[Renewal (Skill)|Renewal]] at level 15 is a worthwhile endeavour, as the skill is useful for many of his classes AND can be excellent to pass on his children.
  +
  +
=====Reclassing=====
  +
Libra has the choice of reclassing to a [[Mage]] or a [[Dark Mage]]. Both sets complement his naturally high magic, though unfortunately, they give him a very small pool of promoted classes: only four, owing to the overlap of [[Sage]] and [[Dark Knight (Awakening)|Dark Knight]]. As all of his classes ''except'' for his starting class are magically-based, it's very worthwhile to pick up [[Magic +2|Magic+2]] and [[Tomefaire]] from the Mage and Sage classes respectively, as they will raise his offences by a whopping +7 in any class but War Monk. The Dark Knight class forfeits Libra's ability to heal allies in exchange for access to swords, which Libra has little use for. However, visiting the class to pick up [[Lifetaker]] is worthwhile, as Libra is very hard to kill when combining this skill with Renewal, both of which allow him to recover 80% of his HP in a single turn.
  +
  +
The Dark Mage skill tree grants several very useful skills for Libra, chief among them [[Anathema]], a great support ability for any of his classes. Upgrading to a [[Sorcerer]] grants his only active damage-dealing skill in [[Vengeance (Skill)|Vengeance]], though its effectiveness is hampered greatly by the Lifetaker/Renewal combo; while risky, it is recommended to avoid running Lifetaker and Renewal alongside Vengeance, though Libra's access to Miracle from his base class provides him with a nice safety net for the risky (if potentially rewarding) tactic. A safer, if less offensively-potent tactic would be to run [[Tomebreaker]] alongside Lifetaker/Renewal, which turns Libra into a magic-soaking tank and effective magekiller. Ultimately Libra is perhaps best putting his magic specialization to good use as a Sage or Sorcerer, depending on whether you need him to run healing duty or focus more on offence via [[Dark (magic)|Dark magic]] spells like [[Waste]] and [[Mire]].

Latest revision as of 01:32, September 27, 2019

Naga has a way of sending a ray of hope into even the deepest darkness.”
—Libra

Libra is a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening.

ProfileEdit

Libra is a saint and war monk of Ylisse with a calm and composed nature. Having grown up abandoned by his parents, Libra was left with a literal scar on his neck, as revealed by his supports with Nowi. Due to his painful past, Libra developed a distrust of people and even haphephobia, or fear of being touched. While the details of his past are never made explicit, it is heavily implied that Libra seeks to atone for it, first by becoming a priest to help others, and then by lending his strength towards Emmeryn's rescue. This prompted him to join the Ylissean clergy.

Hearing of Emmeryn's impending execution, Libra and a group of his fellow clergymen head off to Plegia to rescue the Exalt. However, they are ambushed by the Grimleal along the way, where their numbers are depleted, leaving Libra as the sole survivor. He later arrives at Plegia Castle in Chapter 9, just as Gangrel is about to execute Emmeryn. Fighting through the Grimleal forces, Libra eventually encounters Chrom and requests to join his ranks to save the Exalt.

After the war, Libra builds an orphanage and watches over the children under his charge for many years. He is courted by many women and men, and is said to be the incarnation of Naga.

PersonalityEdit

Libra is a kind man who presents as stoic and patient, almost to the point of being oracular; as a result of this, he puts others at ease and is very trustworthy, having a motherly and caring disposition acting protective of those around him, though his support with Gaius shows that even he has limits, and when the he keeps praying to the gods for superficial and materialistic reasons, Libra loses his usual demeanor and becomes angry with him, though he forgives and is still willing to teach how to pray. However, Libra is also somewhat detached from others and himself, feeling that his being a priest is only a substitution for a real identity, compounded by what Tharja can only describe as a horrifying dark side; one that he tries to suppress and veil, but is able to disturb even the likes of her with it. Truly, his supports with Tharja reveals that he wants to erase all traces of his past due to the unpleasantry of it, so much so that he feels like he is being saved instead of cursed.

Due to his reserved nature and lack of self worth, Libra somewhat hates who he is, revealing to Sully that he is empty inside, since while wanting to live a clergyman's life, be kind to everyone and praise the gods, at the same time, he believes that some part of him thinks that this type of life isn't what he really wants, while admitting to Maribelle that he had little faith for humanity until he saw her efforts for equality between nobles and commoners, claiming her words were "his salvation". As a result, he believes that he's a flawed human being whether regardless of his clergy, acknowledging to Gaius that fighting with the Shepherds means that he has to kill people and even if it's for the greater good, he isn't proud of these deeds.

Even though he is often mistaken for a woman due to his androgynous appearance, Virion discovers he is a man with a masculine side to him, as Virion tends to pay attention to the tiniest details. His support with Cherche also showcases his rather eccentric thought process, wherein he attempts to speak to and befriend a mole, both to Cherche's surprise and, unfortunately, no avail.

His support with Robin reveals that he is an extremely skilled artist and loves to paint, but never does requests and finds very little if any passion in his craft.

In his religious devotion, Libra often prays to the gods, leaving him with scabbier knees than anyone in the group.

OverallEdit

Secret Book (Artwork)
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.
Base ClassEdit

Libra plays the role of a typical pre-promoted unit with the initial high stats, providing immediate strength, but gradually falling behind other healers. On higher difficulties, Libra is more liable to stay useful owing to his higher starting stats and the tougher enemies, provided he is given enough experience. Either way he starts very solid with balanced stats, both strength and magic stats allowing him to be effective whether he's laying enemies low with his axe or healing with Healtouch. Libra has average growths, most of which are around 50% aside from a strong 90% for health. While he proves bulkier and offensively stronger than Lissa or Maribelle in the War Cleric role, his level-up boosts can get awkward and inconsistent, and his lack of specialization is largely what will cause him to fall behind in later chapters of the main story. Nonetheless, continuing to train him to pick up Renewal at level 15 is a worthwhile endeavour, as the skill is useful for many of his classes AND can be excellent to pass on his children.

ReclassingEdit

Libra has the choice of reclassing to a Mage or a Dark Mage. Both sets complement his naturally high magic, though unfortunately, they give him a very small pool of promoted classes: only four, owing to the overlap of Sage and Dark Knight. As all of his classes except for his starting class are magically-based, it's very worthwhile to pick up Magic+2 and Tomefaire from the Mage and Sage classes respectively, as they will raise his offences by a whopping +7 in any class but War Monk. The Dark Knight class forfeits Libra's ability to heal allies in exchange for access to swords, which Libra has little use for. However, visiting the class to pick up Lifetaker is worthwhile, as Libra is very hard to kill when combining this skill with Renewal, both of which allow him to recover 80% of his HP in a single turn.

The Dark Mage skill tree grants several very useful skills for Libra, chief among them Anathema, a great support ability for any of his classes. Upgrading to a Sorcerer grants his only active damage-dealing skill in Vengeance, though its effectiveness is hampered greatly by the Lifetaker/Renewal combo; while risky, it is recommended to avoid running Lifetaker and Renewal alongside Vengeance, though Libra's access to Miracle from his base class provides him with a nice safety net for the risky (if potentially rewarding) tactic. A safer, if less offensively-potent tactic would be to run Tomebreaker alongside Lifetaker/Renewal, which turns Libra into a magic-soaking tank and effective magekiller. Ultimately Libra is perhaps best putting his magic specialization to good use as a Sage or Sorcerer, depending on whether you need him to run healing duty or focus more on offence via Dark magic spells like Waste and Mire.
