—Monica's reanimated corpse at the end of Chapter 16.
Monica (モニカ Monika) is a character mentioned in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is Orson's reanimated wife who died sometime before the beginning of the game. According to Orson, her birthday was on the same day Chapter 16 took place.
After Eirika and Ephraim retake Castle Renais, they and Seth encounter Monica in Orson's quarters. Affected by the same magic used to control Emperor Vigarde, her corpse is capable only of saying "darling" over and over. Seth offers to destroy her body, but Ephraim destroys it instead.
