“I understand if I lose to someone with better technique. When that happens, I can always hone my skills and work on getting more combat experience. If I lose, it's not because I'm a woman. It's because someone trained harder than me. And if that happens, I'll hone my skills and come back to beat them.”
—Mia, in her supports with Largo in Path of Radiance.

Mia is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. She is one of the members of the Greil Mercenaries, and works as a sell-sword.

Profile[edit | edit source]

In Path of Radiance, Mia is a mercenary hired by Crimea, and is captured by Daein soldiers. As a result of being set free by Greil, she joins his mercenary band to pay off her debt, but remained with the mercenaries. Mia's training tends to be rather extreme, with her attempts to spar with others being rather aggressive in nature, whereupon she convinces Rhys to stand by her side in order to heal any wounds she may receive. She is most likely Ike's preferred sparring partner, as she tends to not complain about the fact that he never holds back during their training sessions, even seeming to enjoy them. After the defeat of Ashera, Mia sets off on a journey around Tellius in search of new opponents, occasionally stopping by Greil's retreat to rest.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Mia can be described as energetic and quirky. She is obsessed when it comes to proving the strength of her mettle, a fact that surfaces prominently in her support conversations, where she will often run around and challenge the first person she sees to duels. Despite her eccentricities, she has a heart of gold, willing to lend her aid to people who need it. For instance, her supports with Ilyana sees her attempting to look after the mage because the latter is fatigued from her usual hunger spells. Also, one of her training sessions with Rhys has her ardently forbidding him from practicing with swords when she sees that doing so makes him ill.

Mia is stalwartly opposed to the backdated viewpoint of women being unsuited for the battlefield, training rigorously every day to disprove this notion. This belief of Mia's has had a major influence on her being quick to accuse male duelists of going easy on her or assuming that her prowess as a swordswoman is inferior due to her gender. This is proven through her supports with Largo, where she takes deep offense over the man suggesting that she is better suited to doing something domestic instead of taking to the battlefield with a sword in hand.

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.

Mia joins relatively early on, and her high base speed practically guarantees she will be doubling all but the fastest enemies. However, she is held back by her relatively low Strength, as well as her bad class. She will often not do much damage to enemies even with 2 attacks. While a 40% growth is by no means bad, it's low enough where it has trouble salvaging her base, meaning she will continue to have lackluster attacking prowess throughout the game. It also doesn't help that she only starts with D Swords, meaning she will struggle to hit C by the time Zihark joins with the Killing Edge. It also means that the most powerful weapon she has access to, the Steel Sword, weighs her down by 5 points unless weight is forged off of one. This means that early on she will often have to choose between double attacking and doing a notable amount of damage per hit. Being locked to swords in general can be crippling in a game like PoR. Since most combat happens on enemy phase, the inability to retaliate on and kill units with magic, bows, hand axes, or javelins can make certain maps take much longer than necessary. Her damage output flaws can be mitigated through the use of an Energy Drop, the Adept skill, and/or the chapter 21 Brave Sword. However, considering she is not mounted and has no reliable 1-2 range, many will not consider her worth this investment.

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.

Mia's Strength and Defense growths are well balanced in Radiant Dawn, and her Skill, Speed and HP are by far her best stats. Her Luck is also decent, but due to the cap of 35 and the growth of 35% it will most likely not cap. She'll have an easy time capping HP, Skill, and Speed, giving her great Bonus Experience potential, allowing her to improve her already decent Strength and Defense. Curiously (and also somewhat funny) is that if she caps Defense as a Swordmaster, the +3 promotion bonus will cause it to be immediately capped as a Trueblade. This gives her inherent bonus experience potential as a Trueblade, and will cap HP soon after, and Speed and Skill following shortly after as well, allowing her to improve her Strength, Luck, and Resistance, which all have decent to high caps. Overall, Mia, due to her high availability and high growths, is the best of the Trueblades, with a trained Edward or Zihark being her most prominent competition. Lucia usually is worse in every stat except Skill and Resistance in comparison to Mia, and the skill is only marginally higher. Mia can be brought into the Tower of Guidance and can wield the Vague Katti, and due to her dodging capabilities and decent durability, will be a useful asset throughout the game.

Path of Radiance[edit | edit source]

"Heya, Boss! We did it! Whooo-hooo! You know, I am completely in love with your fighting style. If I could train under you, it would be great! So let me stick around for a while. All right?"

Radiant Dawn[edit | edit source]

Aspiring Lady of the Blades (頂へ昇る剣士 Itadaki e Noboru Kenshi, lit. The Rising to the Top Swordsman)

Mia set off in search of new opponents. She traveled the whole continent, but sometimes rested at the Greil's retreat.

Non-Canon Appearances[edit | edit source]

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

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mia's Radiant Dawn incarnation came in 16th place for females in the Fire Emblem Heroes Choose Your Legends popularity poll, with 8,946 votes. Her Path of Radiance incarnation came in 37th place for females, and had 4,408 votes.
  • Mia, alongside most of the Greil Mercenaries, is given a voice in a cutscene of Radiant Dawn. Alongside Micaiah and Rolf, is voiced by Lani Minella.
    • Mia is the only one of these characters to retain Lani Minella as a voice actress in Fire Emblem Heroes.
  • In Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Forde mentions that Kyle has a sister named Mia in their B support. However neither character's name is Mia in the Japanese versions.
  • Throughout the Tellius series, Mia searches for her rival "clad in white", accusing several unlikely characters of being this person. Strangely enough she never seems to take notice of Lucia, who serves in the same army as her in both games and is a Swordmaster in white garb.
  • Mia has cut supports with Marcia and Nephenee in the data for Path of Radiance.
  • If Mia supports Ike in Radiant Dawn, she will refer to him as "boss" instead of Ike.
