“I may not know how to govern yet, but I'll learn. I will make Ostia a land where our children can live in happiness.”
—Lilina in a support conversation with Ogier in The Binding Blade

Lilina is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is the only daughter of Hector, who is one of the protagonists from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, and the heiress apparent of Ostia. She appears as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Lilina's deceased mother is never mentioned in name during The Binding Blade. She is deliberately left ambiguous, as Hector has four potential wives Lyndis, Florina, Farina, or an unknown woman depending on which supports he gained in The Blazing Blade.

Profile[edit | edit source]

The Blazing Blade[edit | edit source]

Hector, in their conversation, tells Eliwood that he had a dream of an older version of himself with a young, blue haired girl. Eliwood believes that Hector has caught a glimpse of his future self. This girl is eventually revealed to be his future daughter Lilina.

At the end of his tale, Hector summons Mark shortly before his coronation as Marquess of Ostia. He and his wife announce that they wish for Mark to be their future child's godparent and requests a name. While Hector desires a boy to clash with Eliwood's future son, his wife asks for a girl's name just in case. Hector would eventually be blessed with a daughter, for whom he used Mark's suggested name, Lilina.

Around a decade after the events of The Blazing Blade, Eliwood travels to Ostia to speak with Hector about the recent unrest in Bern regarding the attempted assassination of prince Zephiel. Lilina would meet Lord Eliwood for the first time and also become acquained with his son Roy whom Eliwood had brought along. Though shy at first, the two strike up an immediate friendship and go off to play while their father's continue to discuss the discord in Bern.

Years later, she and Roy studied in Ostia under the tutelage of the Mage General Cecilia. Lilina was very good in magic while Roy was not, so Cecilia trained Roy as a swordsman and Lilina as a mage. In this time too, Lilina seemed more mature than Roy. Lilina grew especially close to Roy since the two were taught the art of combat in together, becoming one of his closest companions throughout his journey, potentially blossoming into love.

The Binding Blade[edit | edit source]

During a break on her studies, Lilina was visiting Pherae, the territory ruled by Eliwood. Roy, who stayed in Ostia is suddenly called home by his sickly father. Upon arriving in Pherae, he finds that his home was being attacked by bandits. He manages to defeat them, rescuing his father and Lilina, who were barricaded in the Castle. Lilina was eager to help the fight, but was forbidden by Eliwood, who wanted her to return safe to Ostia, as a rebellion was going to break in the capital under Bern's attack, that wanted to conquer the nation of Lycia.

After sending her knight, Bors, to Roy’s service, Lilina hurries back home to Ostia. Unfortunately, after the death of Marquess Hector, some of the Ostian soldiers turn renegade and she is captured and locked inside of a room in her own castle. When Roy arrives to rescue her, the enemy General plans to kill Lilina, and attempt to pass it off as an unfortunate consequence of the upcoming war. If he is unsuccessful in his attempt of assassination, Lilina is rescued and joins Roy's army, along Ostian soldiers and knights that swore loyalty to her: Bors, Ogier, Gwendolyn, Astolfo and Barthe

Despite being daughter of Hector and sucessor of Ostia, she trusts her soldiers under Roy's command, making an alliance, strengthening the army in an unified group. After being devasted when learning of her father’s death, she leads Roy to a secret cave where they obtain one of the Divine Weapons: Durandal, the Blazing Sword.

As the journey advances,  once the army arrives in the Western Isles, they need to face bandits who are exploring the islanders for mining. One of the mercenaries, Gonzalez is ordered to burn down a village, suspected of being the base of a rebel faction. However, Lilina notices his sad and reluctant expression, and realizes that he can be reasoned with. Gonzalez attempts to get Lilina to have the villagers evacuate, so he can complete his orders without harming anyone, but Lilina sways him over to her side, with the promise of being accepted and no longer needing to harm innocent people to survive.

In a similar fashion, Lilina recruits Garret, a reluctant mercenary fighting for Bern, to the Lycian army. She convinces him to join the army with the promise of ending the war, and living in a future in which he wouldn't need to fight for money anymore.

She notably developed a childhood crush on Roy, but the possibility that he doesn't feel the same is reason of anxiety for her, so she decides to focus on trying to win him over other girls, to not lose him to the "competetion". It's implied that Lilina can move on from her feelings for Roy, as it's implicated in her A support with Gonzales, in which she realizes she wants to be by his side.

Epilogue[edit | edit source]

Once the war is over, she succeds her father, becoming the new marquess of Ostia and eventually becomes the first queen of Lycia after leading an unified alliance. Lilina is one of Roy's possible love interests, and if they have an A level support at the end of the game, an ending is triggered in which Roy and Lilina marry.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Lilina is outgoing and cheerful, often abandoning social obligations between nobility and commoners, desconstucting the knight's desire to maintain their relationship formal due to their different status. On the other hand, she is also childish, idealistic and naive to the point of being slightly detached from reality. Emotional, she cries easily when she feels that she has hurt someone's feelings or dredged up painful memories.

Lilina's compassion and tendency to trust others blindly ultimately brings people to her, and none are particularly offended or troubled despite her occasional outbursts. During the war, Lilina feels anxious and left behind by her childhood friend Roy, realizing that he changed once he got a leadership position, since he had further responsibilities. She often compares her abilities to Roy, and feels unsure of her skills as a leader and future ruler of Ostia, fearing that she is not qualified enough since she is rather guileless and she didn't identify the coming uprising in Ostia. Seeing others being changed by the war resulted on Lilina feeling eager to be useful, despite missing the carefree older days.

She eventually adapts to the circumstances and develops into a charismatic lady which spontaneous charm allows her connect with outcasts and lower members of the army. She matures into a charming leader that recruits a considerable amount of new members to their cause, such as Gonzalez and Garret. By interacting with them and her knights, she starts to understand in first hand the harsh reality of the common people, a reality that she was unaware due to being rather sheltered and naive, finding in them a reason to fight, and a motivation to became a fair ruler.

She is stubborn like her father Hector, but is far more inclined to seek a peaceful solution. She loves her father dearly and is devastated by his death, but does everything to hide her sadness under a smile. Succeeding him as the future leader of Ostia, Lilina desires to improve herself to become a ruler befitting her father's legacy. Curiously, in her conversation with Ogier, she reveals the wish that she had a little sister, instead of being an only child

Lilina's expansive personality contrasts with her disposition when she was a young child. A period in which she was shyer and more reserved towards strangers, yet polite and friendly, exemplified by her first meeting with Eliwood and his son.

While boasting a very high Magic growth, Lilina joins at a low level and facing competition for the Chapter 8 Guiding Ring, with the next one appearing in Chapter 14. Lugh, who joins earlier, has similarly low bases with a higher emphasis on Speed and more time for investment. One thing to note is that she has a fast support growth with Roy which grants her important +3 Attack and +15 Accuracy/Critical bonuses. This gives her a niche wielding Bolting tomes later in the game thanks to her high damage output and the possibility of doubling some of the slower enemies thanks to its relatively lower weight in this game. In all, Lilina is a growth unit who joins under-leveled with low base stats at a time when many units should be around Level 10+. She also takes time and effort to train due to her frailty and also because the difficulty is past level 1 at this point.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Lilina performs similar to her original Binding Blade with an impressively high base Atk stat of 37 with a neutral IV on it, allowing her to launch powerful attacks. Unfortunately, she lacks the speed needed to double attack enemies, forcing her to rely on one singularly powerful attack. She does have a respectable Res stat as well, letting her duel mages, but her Def leaves her vulnerable to physical assaults. During the first year of Heroes, Lilina was a subpar mage, but vastly improved with the introduction of the Weapon Refinery, turning her into one of the most powerful single hit nuke mages in the game.

Her starting tome was Bolganone, which fit naturally with her high base Atk to launch a powerful single powerful 50 base Atk. Lilina was blessed to later on receive a new Legendary Weapon in the form of Forblaze a new powerful tome with a Chill Resistance effect, allowing her to better dispatch high Res threats. It also came with a Refine, giving her a Death Blow 3 effect, making her initiations even more powerful and can stack on an inherited Death Blow, leading to even higher nuking potential.

Growing Flame was a decently powerful AoE special that let her damage enemies with unresisted damage to enemies around her target when the skill activated. Attack +3 gave her a flat 3 damage boost to her Attack, but it lacks longterm viability. Spur Attack is a decent supporting Skill C, but other skills are better suited for Lilina.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Lilina's Spd and Def creates her biggest weakness. She cannot survive any form of physical assaults aside from a few Green units. Great Blue mages like Delthea, Lute, and Micaiah easily survive her attacks and deals with her easily while Reinhardt can plow through her with Dire Thunder. Distant Counter weapon users like Fjorm, Camus, and Fallen Hardin also easily take her attacks and retaliates. Lastly, certain red units can deal with her if she is unable to finish them. Both forms of Tharja, Ryoma, Young Tiki are good Red units that can duel her and defeat her if she is unable to take care of them. If using an AoE Lilina, Vantage who can counterattack can use the non-lethal damage limitation of her Special to enter the skill's damage range before demolishing her.

Skill Inheritance Options[edit | edit source]
Lilina is best built to be a Player Turn character. Given that Forblaze has Death Blow built into it, she can also run Death Blow in her Skill A slot, granting her a +14 Atk (12 if only using Death Blow 3) when she initiates, bringing her lowest possible Atk with a bane to 62 Atk on initiation and 68 with a Boon. Furthermore, adding a Death Blow seal adds an additional 6 Atk, meaning that an unmerged, no dragonflower Atk boon Lilina without any external visible buffs and in-combat buffs can achieve an astounding 74 Atk on initiation. Her high Atk stats makes her an excellent candidate for Draconic Aura as it scales with her impressive attack, though Iceberg also works if working with a Res Boon Lilina. Some suggest taking an area of effect special such as Rising Flame to apply splash damage that is unaffected by color and can easily bring enemies down to 1 HP with the large difference between her potential Atk and her enemy's Res. Lilina's Spd problems are best dealt with by running Swordbreaker or R Tomebreaker as it at least allows her to better combat units of her own color type. Lull Attack Resistance negates enemy visible buffs mainly to their Res and lowers them while simultaneously increasing her own Atk/Res. Her Skill C can be a plethora of supportive skills that help her allies. If able to secure a premium unit with Odd Attack Wave or Even Attack Wave, she can self-buff herself with +6 Atk on Odd/Even turns respectively, thus bringing her maximum Atk to 74 when initiating. She is a decent candidate for Ploy skills given her good Res so that option is also available.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Valentine Lilina existed in an unsaturated weapon/unit type combination pool and when compared to her counterparts, she stood out having slightly better offense than Cecilia but not quite the potent force of some later units introduced after her. She can easily fill a role given to her for a Cavalry team, giving her excellent flexibility, but other units have been introduced since and can specialize for specific niches.

Green Gift neutralizes enemy bonuses if they use ranged weapons, making her an excellent check for common bladetome users who rely on buffs. Blazing Flame is an area of effect special that causes damage equal to 1.5x the different between Lilina’s Atk and the foe’s Res. With her modest Atk, she can deal decent splash with it. HP/Atk 2 gives her a flat HP +4 and Atk +2 increase which are good short term increases, but better replaced. Attack Tactic grants a +6 Atk buff to allies on within two spaces of Lilina if there are no more than two allies who are of the same movement type. This is useful for mixed teams, but not for pure Cavalry Teams.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Her defenses are both low, especially her Def. With a plethora of Red physical units to choose from, Valentine Lilina is utterly helpless against any Red unit who can get to her. While her Res is slightly stronger, common red mages like Sanaki, Katarina, Tharja, and ironically her own original form. Certain strong Green Mages can combat her easily, though if she is maintaining her Green Gift, she can depower some of them like Nino. Anti-Cavalry weapons are another new weakness including Gray, his Zanbato, Summer Micaiah, and Rhajat.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]
Valentine Lilina can be turned into a Gronnblade user as her stats are strong enough to give it decent power behind and with Cavalry boosts, she can unleash devastating attacks. Fury and Desperation are the standard skills taken to boost her stats and give immediate follow-up attacks respectively. Moonbow ignores parts of her foe’s Res and charges quickly while Glimmer is powered by buffs she receives. A Cavalry skill of some form is recommended for her as she is at her strongest on an enemy team. Finally Reposition is always a solid choice for a Cavalry unit.

Lilina is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:


Etymology[edit | edit source]

Lilina is a combination of the name "Lily" and the suffix "-ina" which mean "Little", and could be translated as "Little Lily". Her name could be a derivation of all her potential mothers' names, which include Lyn, Florina, and Farina.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lilina has been in multiple popularity contests and statistics based on character favoritism:
    • On the official Japanese website for Nintendo, Lilina won 3rd place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. The male-female vote ratio is 2:1. The voter comments seem to generally focus on her being a powerful Mage/Sage and her gentle personality.
    • Lilina came in 25th place for females in the 2017 Fire Emblem Heroes Choose Your Legends popularity poll. She had 5,730 votes, ranking in 49th place.
  • If Eliwood marries Fiora, and Hector marries Farina or Florina in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, Lilina will be Roy's first cousin.
  • Hector's B-Rank support conversation with Eliwood has him dreaming of his not-yet-born daughter playing with an red-haired boy in the future, and him getting supremely annoyed at the possibility that he may lose his daughter to Eliwood's son. Unfortunately for Hector, he's right, as Lilina ends up developing feelings for Roy and, depending on the player's actions, ends up marrying him.
  • Lilina is the winner of the 16th Voting Gauntlet (Fathers and Daughters) in Fire Emblem Heroes.
