Riviera (translated Libera in the fan translation) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Awakening.
He is a saint of 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, Virion discovers he is a man with a masculine side to him. He tends to pay attention to the tiniest details. He prays to God more than anybody in the army. His birthday is July 1st.
Riviera'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 Lord. 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.
