“...No...I will not be the only one who runs away!”
—Mist, fighting Muarim in The Feral Frontier in Path of Radiance

Mist (Alja in the German version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. She is Ike's younger sister, and the daughter of Greil and Elena. She fights with the Greil Mercenaries out of a fear of being separated from her brother, using healing magic taught to her by Rhys. When Lehran's Medallion reaches its critical state, Mist is the only beorc to be affected by its call, and collapses in a similar manner to the Herons.

Mist appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a Sticker, and in Fire Emblem Awakening as a recruitable SpotPass character.


Path of Radiance[]

Mist was born in Gallia, and spent her early years in this country with her family. During this time, she is entrusted to be the keeper of a bronze medallion by her father. Unbeknownst to her, she is the only beorc who can hold the medallion without going berserk due to the forces of Order and Chaos being unusually balanced in her heart. She often sings a lullaby taught to her by her mother to the Medallion, which, in actuality, is the Galdr of Release. After the death of her mother, Mist moves to Crimea with her remaining family members, where her father starts the Greil Mercenaries.

As the Greil Mercenaries run errands for their employers, Mist assists them by ensuring that their home fort is kept in tip-top condition, doing a wide range of household chores such as cooking and cleaning. Her culinary skills, however, leave a lot to be desired, as described by Ike in a support conversation he shares with Oscar.

Trouble begins to brew for the Mercenaries when news of an impending invasion by Daein reaches their ears. In order to avoid this conflict, they are forced to leave the fort and proceed to the safety of Gallia.

On the way to Gallia, Mist, alongside Rolf and Elincia, is instructed to take an alternate route from the Mercenaries to avoid the fighting. After joining up with Ike and the rest of the Mercenaries, she accompanies them to take up temporary residence within an abandoned fortress.

Greil is later slain by the Black Knight that night, and dies away from the fort. This incident severely impacts Mist, who is unable to forgive herself for not being by her father's side as he breathed his last.

Determined not to make the same mistake with Ike, Mist forces Rhys to teach her how to use Staves, and makes plans with Rolf to fight alongside their siblings. When the Greil Mercenaries move to enter battle again, she and Rolf force their way onto the battlefield, and succeed in convincing Ike and Boyd to allow them to fight alongside them. Mist later plays a major role in uncovering Duke Tanas' plot, and witnesses the rebirth of Serenes Forest by the Herons Reyson and Leanne.

When Ike later challenges the Black Knight in Nados Castle, Mist charges in and provides assistance to him as a healer. The pair will then flee the castle before it collapses.

Mist will then aid the rest of the army in ending The Mad King's War.

Radiant Dawn[]

Mist returns when Crimea is embroiled in a civil war, where the Mercenaries take on a job to quell the rebellion, alongside saving Lucia from being executed. As the Mercenaries later joins the ranks of the Laguz Alliance, Mist will participate in the battles that follow.

As the war rages on, Mist becomes increasingly ill as the forces of chaos residing within Lehran's Medallion become uncontrollable. In the middle of a battle with Daein, she succumbs to the Medallion's influence, whereupon she is led off the battlefield. Mist will then reveal that she could hear a voice in her head urging her to awaken the dark god with the Galdr of Release.

Mist will join Ike's progress to the Tower of Guidance. She also warns Ike to be careful when he faces off against Zelgius, the Black Knight for the final time.

After Ashera is defeated, Mist will return to Crimea with the Mercenaries. Mist will marry Boyd if she shares an A rank Support with him; she cries during their vows, much to his chagrin.


Mist is a cheerful, gentle, and helpful young woman who speaks from the heart and enjoys taking care of others as best she can. She worked in the background of the Greil Mercenaries, until she found herself joining the battlefield in the middle of the war. She is always eager to help as much she can; though, this has lead her to attempt to carry out certain tasks that she is not necessarily good at, with examples including cooking and sewing. Mist often makes valiant efforts to befriend others, as can be observed through her making meals for Jill and striking up conversations with Mordecai.

She harbors a deep love for her family, where she tears up whenever she discusses her deceased father, alongside striving to stay close to Ike in a bid to prevent him from leaving her. Despite her strong resolve, Mist abhors fighting, but understands that doing so is key in protecting her loved ones.

Though she has the kind face and demeanor inherited from her mother, she has a fiery determination that burns once pressed to decide on something important, passed on by her father. This leads to her having a tendency to fly into tremendous outbursts of anger at times, specifically towards those who have harmed her family, such as the Black Knight.

Mist starts out as the only playable Cleric. She is a staff-wielder with low base stats who joins in Chapter 9 and can only heal small amounts of HP, but has the potential to grow into a usable healer if given proper training. Mist is able to promote into a Valkyrie, increasing her mobility and giving her a mount, as well as gaining the ability to wield Swords (strangely enough, she does not receive mounted unit bonus damage). Statistically, Mist is very physically fragile but has solid Magic, Luck, and Resistance, though her Strength is a bit shaky and her Skill is very low, which can hamper her offense upon promotion. When compared to Rhys, the other available staff user early in the game, Mist has greater mobility upon promotion, which is important as many of the maps in Path of Radiance favor units with higher movement. Rhys, however, has the advantage of more availability and higher staff rank when Mist joins. He will also usually end up with higher Magic, due to his superior base and growth. As such, continuing to use Rhys while waiting for Mist to catch up is a good idea.

If seeking to use Mist, it is recommended to train her to a B-rank in Swords after promotion so she can use the Sonic Sword. Mist gains D-rank Swords upon promotion, giving her less effort than other characters need to train up to a B-rank in a weapon gained upon promotion. What's more, there is little competition for the Arms Scroll, so those can be used to get her up to B-rank as well. If this is done, Mist can become a glass cannon of sorts.

Mist reappears as a Cleric. She joins with a personal sword, where she is able to inflict damage upon enemies at a distance. Her capped Luck is lower as a Valkyrie than it is as a Cleric, a trait that is most likely a result of the statistical balance that mounted units boast.

In Radiant Dawn, Mist will take mounted unit bonus damage as a Valkyrie, unlike her counterpart in the previous game. Once promoted, she will gain the Sol skill, and is a good candidate for bringing into the Tower of Guidance.

The Holy Crown can only be used by Mist, and allows her to promote into a Valkyrie. However, as she is capable of promoting prior to receiving this item, it is thus considered to be redundant.

According to the Norse mythological poems Grímnismál and Nafnaþulur, Mist is the name of a Valkyrie. In Norse mythology, they were warrior maidens who brought dead heroes to Valhalla, the heroes' heaven. The name means "mist" or "cloud" in Norse.

The reason why her name was changed in the German versions of Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn, Awakening and Heroes is because of the German meaning of "Mist", which is a swear word and a designation for trash or manure, making it inappropriate to be used as a name.


  • Mist shares her third English voice actress, Sarah Anne Williams, with Laevatein in Fire Emblem Heroes.
  • It is not explicitly stated where Mist learned swordplay. It is said in a conversation with Mia in Radiant Dawn, however, that she and Titania "complain" when Ike spars with them (as opposed to Mia enjoying the matches), so it is highly possible that Ike is responsible for training her.
  • By wielding both Swords and Staves, Mist essentially uses both of her parents' primary weapons.
  • Oddly enough, in Path of Radiance, Mist's outfit changes from yellow to red when she promotes. In Radiant Dawn, however, she starts out with a red outfit, which reverts to what appears to be her old yellow outfit when she promotes.
  • Mist is confirmed to have an Absolute Age of 18 in the Radiant Dawn half of the Tellius Recollection, which indirectly confirms she is also 15 in Path of Radiance. This puts her two years younger than Ike.
  • In Radiant Dawn, profiles are created for each and every character. In some copies of the North American version of the game, Muarim's profile is misprinted and is the same as Mist's.
  • Mist can actually lose Luck when she promotes from a Cleric to a Valkyrie, due to the lower stat cap.
  • In Path of Radiance, if Mist is brought along in the chapter Day Breaks, either Lethe, Mordecai, or Nasir will mention that her hearing is on par with that of the Laguz.
  • Four of the units in Mist's SpotPass team in Fire Emblem Awakening represent members of the Greil Mercenaries:
