“No, I'm a swordfighter. I am the daughter of Eyvel! I won't lose to a bunch of brigands!”
—Mareeta in Thracia 776

Mareeta is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is a princess of the fallen kingdom of Rivough in Isaach and the daughter of its Prince Galzus. As a full-blooded descendant of the Crusader Od, Mareeta bears his markings on her back.


Before Thracia 776

As a child, Mareeta traveled with Galzus for a time, but was later abducted by slave traders and taken to Conote. Eyvel later chanced upon the slave market that Mareeta was brought to, where she found the girl chained up and in the process of being sold. Seized by a fit of rage, Eyvel killed all the guards and slave traders, thereafter rescuing and adopting Mareeta. Mareeta was then taken to the Thracian village of Fiana, where she was raised alongside Leif, Nanna, Orsin, Halvan, and Tanya.

Naturally gifted as a sword-fighter, Mareeta took up arms and joined Eyvel's Fiana Freeblades, aiding in the effort to quell the bandit uprising across the eastern coast of Thracia.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Mareeta first appears in Chapter 1, where she and Nanna are captured by Raydrik of Manster when he raids Fiana in an attempt to find Leif.

Mareeta later appears in Chapter 5, where she, having gone berserk under the influence of the Shadow Sword, is pitted against Eyvel in an arena in Manster. She is eventually withdrawn from battle, and Eyvel is petrified and kidnapped by Veld.

While Leif's army passes through Dakia Forest in Chapter 12, it is revealed that Mareeta had been taken under Saias's wing some time after the events of Manster. Having removed the curse placed on the Shadow Sword, he entrusts the now-purified blade into Mareeta's care, emphasising that as a true swordfighter, she must love all blades that pass through her hands. He then departs from her side, leaving her to reunite with Leif and join his skirmish against the bandits attacking the villages in the vicinity.

After Leif's army successfully secures control over Manster in Chapter 24, they embark on a mission to rescue Eyvel in Chapter 24x. Here, Sara uses the Kia Staff to undo Eyvel's petrification, reuniting Mareeta with her adoptive mother.

Mareeta will then go on to support Leif in his final battle against Veld in the Final Chapter, thereafter liberating Northern Thracia from the clutches of the church of Loptous.


Stout of heart, Mareeta possesses a strong will that sees her bravely standing up against Raydrik even when she is captured by him.

Yet beneath this façade of strength is a person riddled with insecurities. This fact becomes more prominent after she is roused from the Shadow Sword's reverie, where she is wracked by guilt over having fought Eyvel against her will.

Mareeta is also known to have a mischievous streak, which surfaces most prominently through the close bond she shares with Nanna. At the end of Thracia 776, for instance, we see her playfully pushing Nanna to confess her feelings for Leif, and much to her delight, this results in Leif proposing to Nanna.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

With a Pursuit Critical Coefficient of 5, the Luna and eventually the Astra skills, as well as Adept on promotion and high growths, Mareeta is one of the strongest combat units in the game. She also comes with a personal weapon that hits twice in row in addition to providing a 20% critical bonus and the Nihil skill. Because of this, she is likely to kill any enemies she comes across later on.

But before that, Mareeta will need a lot of training since she starts out weak and her low defense isn't helping her ability to survive more than two or three hits. The chapter where she joins offers a good opportunity to have her gain a few needed levels against the bandits. If no one else is using it, she can be given the Elite Sword while training to boost her EXP gain and durability, although her low base strength can make it problematic for her to kill enemies with it. Without her special blade, she probably isn't killing anything at base, which she also uses up quickly due to how many times she has to attack to kill anything, meaning if you want it later you will probably have to hammerne it, and a lot of other items, such as the Pugi, a brave weapon, or possibly warp staff. For scrolls, the most useful ones for her are the Hezul and Dain scrolls, which boost her HP and Defense, respectively, as they help increase her durability. They also give her small strength boosts and can help her increase her low base strength faster.

Another problem is that, while Mareeta’s offense can grow to be one of the best in the game, it takes a long time to grow to that point, and after finally growing, it is often overkill due to how weak enemies are in Thracia. This makes her quite redundant, not to mention how she lacks a means to attack at range, besides magic swords that she cant use well due to her 1 base magic and 15% growth.

Remember to have Mareeta talk to Shannam in Chapter 15 to have her learn the Astra skill. It is not required, but if you are using mareeta, you may as well teach her this skill. However, if it is too much of a hastle for you, it will not be the end of the world if you don't teach her this. This chapter also provides with a lot of axe-user reinforcements for her to train against, and she probably needs this training quite a lot.
