Lilith is a non-playable character from Fire Emblem Fates. She is an Astral Dragon that lives in a Shrine in My Castle.


Lilith is the Avatar's attendant, and always follows them when she can. She can help her allies when they fight in My Castle during StreetPass Battles and Castle Invasions. Lilith will accept any food made in the Canteen. As she is fed, the food given will affect her stat growths. Interestingly, she is capable of using staves and breath weapons, such as her Astral Breath. She will also give the Avatar a Gold Bar every three levels she gains.

Lilith first appears in Chapter 1, where she sees the Avatar off when they leave the castle. Later in Chapter 3, after the Ganglari throws the Avatar into the chasm, Lilith suddenly appears and transforms into her dragon form and rescues them by transporting them into the Astral Plane. It is here that she reveals that they first met when the Avatar was very young. The tiny baby "bird" that they found and nursed was Lilith. Grateful for their kindness, Lilith wanted to be by them for the rest of her life.

Hidden TruthsEdit

It is revealed in the Hidden Truths 2 Xenologue that Lilith is in fact the younger "sister" of the Avatar as she was self-sired by Anankos as another pawn in his schemes. Despite Lilith's best attempts to please him, Anankos never showed her any form of love, but she still remained loyal to him. When Anankos' human avatar brings three warriors from another realm, Anankos orders Lilith to intercept them and kill them. After confronting the human Anankos, she puts up a tremendous attack against them, but Odin, Laslow, and Selena receive Anankos' blessing, granting them the power to defeat the summoned Vallite forces. After the battle, Lilith continues to summon more troops, but Anankos sends the three warriors to Nohr in hopes of finding their child. Left alone with Anankos, Lilith attempts to kill him, but oddly cannot bring herself to do so. After the human Anankos' calls her his beloved daughter, she wavers and abandons her will to kill him. Anankos' dragon form senses this and attempts to kill her, but the human Anankos sacrifices himself to protect her. As Lilith holds the dying human form of her father, she regrets letting him die. As Anankos' human avatar expires, he says his final apologies to Lilith, Mikoto, and his child. After hearing the child's name, Lilith decides to head to Nohr to find this child and protect them in her father's place. However, she vowed never to speak of their true relationship in order to protect her father's draconic form.


In Chapter 24, after the Avatar and the Hoshidan successfully enter the Nohrian Castle, they wind up in the training grounds rather than the throne room. Surrounded by Nohrian troops led by Hans, the army is quickly overpowered. As Hans moves in to kill the Avatar, Lilith appears, intercepts the blow. Enraged, the Avatar attacks the Nohrian soldiers and eventually kills Hans. After the battle, the Avatar desperately tries to keep Lilith alive but neither Sakura nor Elise can save her. Lilith changes into her human form as she says her final farewell to the Avatar, saying that with her death, she has repaid the Avatar who saved her life. With her death, the Avatar weeps in sorrow, but with some words from Ryoma, vows to finish their task to defeat King Garon for Lilith and many others who needlessly died during the war.

Lilith appears in the Endgame during a near death experience by the Avatar alongside Xander, Elise, and Flora. They encourage the Avatar to return to the land of the living to finish the fight against Garon.


In Chapter 7, the Avatar and Lilith walk through the Woods of the Forlorn, on their way to complete their mission to put down the Ice Tribe's rebellion alone. After the Avatar runs into some Faceless, she then warps back into My Castle.

In Chapter 21, the Avatar is ambushed by a Faceless when they nearly make it to the top of the Eternal Stairway. Lilith leaps in the way and receives a mortal wound. As Lilith lays dying, the great Astral Dragon, Moro, transforms Lilith back into her human form as she tells the Avatar that she was happy to protect them like they had done to her years ago. Lilith dies in the Avatar's arms, leaving them to wonder what is their purpose when they could not protect Lilith. However, with Xander's encouragement, they move on as that is what Lilith would have wanted. The Avatar tells Lilith that they will meet again one day on the other side and talk of old times.


In this route, she brings the Avatar and their servant to their new My Castle after they decide not to side with either of the Hoshido and Nohrian armies. Lilith is not seen again during the rest of this route and does not die like in the other two routes.

Heirs of FateEdit

Lilith makes two appearances in the final chapter of Heirs of Fate. In her first one, she offers to enhance the children's crystals in order to teleport all of them. Later, after Anankos' defeat, she appears to act as his guide to the afterlife.

Spoilers end here.


Because the Avatar nursed her back to health when she was heavily wounded, she became human in order to repay the Avatar for their kindness. She became extremely close to the Avatar as one of their maids. During the story of Fates, Lilith has always been willing to leap into danger in order to protect them, even sacrificing her life in exchange for their safety.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

On the Birthright and Conquest routes, Lilith will die after Chapters 24 and 21 respectively. In this case, she will appear as a spirit during My Castle battles, helping out castle defenders. She can still be fed food and gain stat growths.

Spoilers end here.

Base StatsEdit

Note: Playthrough determines what Lilith will be using. If playing on Birthright, she is given Astral Blessing, while in Conquest she is given Astral Breath instead. She gets both Astral Blessing and Astral Breath if playing on Revelation.

Growth RatesEdit

Lilith's growths depend on what kind of food she is given. Each certain type of food eaten boosts one (or two, in the case of strength-based food) particular stat(s) by one point while increasing the others by 0.5. The different kinds of food and what stats they boost is shown in the table below.

Food Growth rates
Meat, Beans HP +1, Strength +1, other stats +0.5
Berries, Peaches Magic +1, other stats +0.5
Milk, Fish Speed +1, other stats +0.5
Wheat, Rice Defence +1, other stats +0.5
Cabbage, Daikon Resistance +1, other stats +0.5

Maximum StatsEdit

2 45 18 25 20 23 25 20 25
3 60 28 35 29 33 35 30 35

Lilith is capped at level 99. However, she can continue to gain levels and stats indefinitely past this point. As every third time feeding her yields a Gold Bar, it is best to feed her whenever possible--even if her stats are mostly capped in any circumstance. The only exception to this is if the food is limited and being reserved for other uses, such as cooking or making accessories.

Appearances Edit

Cypher Edit

Lilith appears in the following cards:


Lilith comes from the Hebrew term, lilith or lilit, which means night creature or night monster. It was also the name of Adam's first wife, in Jewish mythology, who was born from the Earth as he was, unlike Eve who was created from his ribs.


  • After transforming, Lilith is no longer voiced in dialogue.
  • Lilith is ranked the most popular story character in the Nintendo dream poll.
  • According to the Making of Fire Emblem 25th Anniversary book Lilith's Dragon form is designed by Kosakihara, while Kozaki designed her human form. She was supposed to look more mature than her final design, but they worked hard to make her more child-like as she is intended to be some sort of cute mascot of Fates. Also "My Castle" is supposedly located inside the Crystal Orb she is holding in her Dragon portrait.
  • Lilith has an unused critical portrait found through datamining the game files.
  • Lilith always gains a level every time she is given a piece of food by the Avatar, it will stop at level 99, however the Avatar can still feed her. With every 3rd time fed after 99, she will hand over another Gold Bar, as she always has.
  • While she doesn't appear in Fire Emblem Heroes, in the Special Events Nohrian Summer, Xander uses a floatie as a weapon that resembles her Astral Dragon Form, the male version of Corrin in the Special Events Happy New Year! costume holds a bow which have a card, having a picture of Lilith in her Astral Dragon form and Xander in the Special Events Festival in Hoshido has a Japanese Mask that looks similar to Lilith's Astral Dragon Form
