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

Libra (リベラ Ribera, Riviera in the Japanese version) 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.


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, or fear of being touched. 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 1.

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.


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

Base Class

Libra plays the role of a typical pre-promote 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 endeavor, as the skill is useful for many of his classes.


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 offenses 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 offense via dark magic spells like Waste and Mire.



  • Chrom: You there! Who are you? Why do you fight alone?
  • Libra: Good heavens! You're Prince Chrom, brother to Her Grace the Exalt!
  • Chrom: You know me?

  • Chrom: With all respect, now is not the time for prayer—it's action that's called for.
  • Libra: Ah, too true! We hurried here to help as soon as word came of the execution.
  • Chrom: We? Then there are more of you?
  • Libra: Alas, there were. I lost many brave comrades along the way. In truth, I was starting to doubt the purpose of my struggle... But no longer! Pray, sire, let my axe serve you and your party!

  • Chrom: Oh. Yes, well, I'm... I didn't mean to imply... Well, this is rather awkward.
  • Libra: Oh, it's all right, sire. You realized your mistake quickly enough. It could have been much more awkward. ...... MUCH more...
  • Chrom: Right! Let's stop there.

  • Libra's official artwork and Cipher TCG appearance depicts him wielding the Bolt Axe.
  • Libra has similarities with Lucius. They are both monks/priests, are males, and are mistaken for being women in their supports with others (and even by players as well). They even look similar physically.
  • Libra's romantic supports with Cherche contradict his support with Gerome if he marries Cherche. He is shown to understand Minerva in their A-Support, however, he cannot seem to understand her in Gerome's A-Support. However, this is due to the fact that all children supports with their parents are generic.
  • Libra shares his English voice actress, Cindy Robinson, with Aversa.
    • He also shares his Japanese voice actress, Megumi Yamato, with Kjelle.
  • Libra is the only male character to be voiced by a female in the English version of the game.
