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

Libra (リベラ Ribera, Riviera in the Japanese version, translated Libera in the fan translation) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Awakening.

He is voiced by Megumi Yamato in the Japanese version and by Cindy Robinson in the English version.

Profile

Libra is a saint and war monk 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, which left a literal scar on his neck as revealed in his support with Nowi. Due to this he developed a distrust of people and even haphephobia. 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. Being of religious nature, Libra often prays to the gods thus resulting in having scabbier knees than anyone in the group. His birthday is July 1st.

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 met by the Grimleal along the way and slowly, their numbers dwindle until only Libra is left. Libra arrives at Plegia Castle in Chapter 9 just as Gangrel is about to execute Emmeryn. He fights his way through some of the Grimleal there until he eventually encounters Chrom and asks 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.

Supports

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/female Avatar reveals that he is an extremely skilled artist and loves to paint, but never does requests.

Overall

Base Class

Libra plays the role of a stereotypical pre-promote: he joins promoted, but has lower base stats than a unit who was trained up into a promote. However, Libra can prove to useful unit. All of his stats will grow at a moderate rate, though in harder difficulties, the need for Second Seals will be in higher demand to increase his stats. He will wind up with decent physical and special defenses, as well as balanced stats across the board. He already comes with Strength to work with, unlike Lissa and Maribelle, who can wind up with 2 strength as a level 20 Cleric/Troubadour.

Libra is also capable of supporting any female parent characters, and can give any of his children Renewal, Tomefaire, Vengeance, Tomebreaker, and Lifetaker.

Reclassing

Libra's alternate class lines are the Mage and Dark Mage lines. Libra as a Mage is more skillful than Ricken, but has a lower growth rate in luck. He is also more balanced than Miriel and Lissa. The same applies for him in the Sage class, though Healtouch can prove to be quite useful.

Libra as a Dark Knight has really balanced growth rates to help him grow. Slow Burn is an okay filler ability if Libra needs a small amount of hit or avoid. Lifetaker combined with Renewal can make Libra very expendable. Henry and Tharja are better Dark Knights in the long run, but Libra can benefit from some time in the class.

Sorcerer Libra has less physical defense than Henry, but higher resistance. However, Libra can grab Tomefaire from the Sage, giving him an edge over Henry. The Vengeance skill is good, since Libra lacks many offensive skills, and Tomebreaker is a good utility skill for anybody with the high diversity of Tomes.
