Leif, wherever you go, I shall follow... even to the ends of the continent.”
—Nanna to Leif in Genealogy of the Holy War

Nanna is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is the daughter of Lachesis, the younger sister of Diarmuid, and a cousin of Ares. As a member of the noble family of Agustria's House Nordion, she possesses minor Hezul blood. By the end of Thracia happenings, she is married to Leif, though both can be paired with other characters during the events of Genealogy of Holy War.

Nanna's substitute character is Jeanne in Genealogy of the Holy War.

ProfileEdit

Before Genealogy of the Holy War Generation 2 and Thracia 776Edit

After Lachesis survived the Battle of Belhalla, she made her way to Leonster, where she gave birth to Nanna in the year 761. The following year, Thracia laid siege to Leonster, and Lachesis, along with Finn, Leif and Nanna, fled. A few years later, Lachesis left Nanna in Finn's care, setting out for Isaach in search of Diarmuid.

When Leif subsequently fled to the village of Fiana, Nanna accompanied him along with Finn. Here, she and Leif would be placed under the care of the village's leader Eyvel, growing up alongside Mareeta, Orsin, Halvan, and Tanya.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy WarEdit

Nanna first appears alongside Leif and Finn in Leonster at the start of Chapter 7, where they find themselves stranded, surrounded by hostile forces spearheaded by Bloom. Seliph's army manages to fight through the enemy forces in the Yied Desert to rendezvous with the trio, and Nanna is reunited with her brother Diarmuid.

After capturing Conote in the same chapter, Nanna can share a conversation with Ares, where she explains that Sigurd is not Eldigan's murderer.

After the war, if Nanna has been paired up, she will accompany her husband to his homeland. If she is not paired up, she will then return to Nordion with Ares and Diarmuid.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776Edit

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

Nanna is later reunited with Eyvel in Chapter 5, but under dire circumstances: The pair are trapped in an arena by Raydrik, forcefully pitted against Mareeta, who has gone berserk due to the influence of the Shadow Sword. Leif's army subsequently breaks into arena, but disaster strikes, with Mareeta recaptured and Eyvel petrified and taken away. Nanna is fortunately spared, and she joins Leif's army.

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 Nanna with her.

Nanna will then go on to support Leif in his final battle against Veld in the Final Chapter, thereafter liberating Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. Nanna will wed Leif thereafter, assisting him in the reconstruction of Leonster and the establishment of the New Kingdom of Thracia. Her kind and selfless nature eventually earns her the admiration of the general populace, and she is affectionately addressed as "Princess Nanna".

PersonalityEdit

Nanna's characterisation is inconsistent between Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, Nanna is portrayed as a headstrong and determined person, as shown through her assertiveness in urging Leif and Finn to abandon Leonster and seek cover in a nearby church. If Finn is her father, he even likens her to her mother Lachesis, who is similarly stubborn and strong-willed.

Yet in Thracia 776, the strong character that Nanna possesses in the previous game is absent. She is markedly quieter and more reserved, and this can immediately be seen in Chapter 1, where her capture by Raydrik sees her doing nothing to fight back, instead silently accepting her circumstances. Chapter 5 only reinforces this change in Nanna's characterisation, where she, seized by fear in the arena, heavily relies on Eyvel's protection to stay alive despite being armed herself. This is possibly due to the fact that Thracia 776 occurs a year before Genealogy of the Holy War, and after Nanna's hardships in the game, she grew into a headstrong woman like her mother.

OverallEdit

Secret Book (Artwork)
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.

Nanna starts off fairly weak, but she does come with her personal weapon, the Earth Sword, and she can become very strong after promotion with it. The bonus she grants to nearby allies thanks to Charm makes her an invaluable unit in the hardest chapters, where evasion is much needed. On top of that, Nanna supports the frontlines even more effectively with her ability to heal on horseback without having to rely on Physic staves early on in the game.

Nanna is one of the best candidates for the Wrath Manual, as it boosts her offense and low PCC. It works extremely well in conjunction with the Earth Sword, which allows her to kill and survive hordes of enemies.

It is recommended that you give her the Ced Scroll to fix her somewhat low Speed. This should be mixed with other scrolls to raise her Magic, along with the Hezul Scroll to raise her HP and combat fatigue.

Also, try to boost her low Build with the Neir Scroll, as she loses Speed even with an Iron Sword on hand.

Nanna - The Princess of Nordion (ノディオンの王女 Nodion no ōjo)
"Following their victory at Belhalla, Nanna devoted herself to helping Leif liberate Agustria. After wedding Leif, now King of New Thracia, Nanna dedicated her time to aiding the many orphans of the war. Known for her beauty and compassion, she was affectionately called "Princess Nanna" even after becoming Queen. By all accounts, she continues to enjoy a happy marriage with Leif to this day."

Nanna is illustrated in the trading card game with the following cards:

EtymologyEdit

In Norse mythology, Nanna is the wife of the god Baldr and the mother of Forseti.

TriviaEdit

  • While it is commonly believed that Nanna and Diarmuid may have different fathers (Finn and Beowolf respectively), it is stated in Fire Emblem's 20th Anniversary Book that her biological father is whomever the player married Lachesis to, and that Finn is more of her adoptive father.
  • Just like Fergus, Nanna was stated to be Beowolf's child in early versions of Nintendo's official website. The identity of her father was then concealed.
  • In Thracia 776, Nanna shares the same growths as Selphina.
  • Nanna shares her English Voice actor with Laegjarn in Heroes and Annette from Three Houses.
  • While Nanna is married to Leif in Thracia's ending, in the final events of Genealogy of Holy war, that happen chronologically after the Thracian war, she and Leif can have other partners.
