—Louise talking to Eliwood
Louise is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. She is the wife of Pent, Count of Reglay of Etruria, while also being the distant cousin and close friend of Queen Hellene of Bern, making her a distant relative of Zephiel.
Louise was born to a family of low nobility. She was smitten by Lord Pent, becoming one of the many women up for consideration for his wife. Rather than honing her skills in singing and dancing like the other women of the court, Louise instead chose the path of a warrior, learning to utilize a bow. Honing her skills, she developed a deadly skill with one. This, accompanied by her vow to protect Pent regardless of whom he chose, led to him selecting Louise as his fiancée.
Louise accompanied Pent on his quest into the Nabata Desert in search of artifacts. Although they are nearly robbed, Eliwood and his army arrive at the desert and protect the two. As thanks, the duo and Hawkeye lead them to Athos and subsequently fight alongside Eliwood for the rest of his journey.
During the battle against the Fire Dragon, Louise mentions to Pent that she is pregnant with their first child, news that elates him.
Louise gentle and well mannered, albeit somewhat childlike in nature, but can be overprotective as well, as her supports with her adoptive son Erk prove.
She loves Pent, even taking on the role of both his wife and protector, having taken up the bow as a means to catch his attention away from his other suitors in the past. Despite many other men in the army finding her beautiful, she never once swayed from her feelings towards him.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
Before looking at anything else, Louise looks like a unit that would not often be used. Her base stats in Skill, Speed and Luck are quite good, although they are hampered by her mediocre defenses and strength, and, most importantly, her foot lock, and lack of 1 range, due to being a Sniper.
While she's not amazing at fighting by herself, she can one-round fliers reliably with a Silver Bow, and Pent helps raise her offense quite a bit. Her support with Pent is actually the factor which makes her a unit you'll usually see in most playthroughs, as she makes Pent's combat even better, allowing him to survive more hits, and one-round almost every generic unit.
While Louise herself may not be amazing, she's a passable unit for flier killing, and she can buff Pent quite a bit, although she still needs to make sure that she's out of range of enemies which she cannot counter while supporting.
Louise: Forgive me, my love...
Pent: Louise! This is too dangerous. Let's return home.
Louise: But everyone...
Pent: You are my most important responsibility. Here, lean on my shoulder.

Eliwood: How is Lady Louise?
Lyn: Lord Pent is escorting her home to Etruria.
Hector: I see...
Lyn: Her life is not in danger. She said she'll be fine and that we shouldn't worry. Lady Louise is more concerned for our safety than her own.
Eliwood: Lady Louise...
