“ I can't keep crying. I have to be strong and keep going.”
—Neimi to Garcia

Neimi is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is a young archer from a village of Renais, and a childhood friend of Colm, whom she brought into Eirika's group.


Neimi and Colm grew up together in the village of Lark. She is a commoner, but was trained by her grandfather, the legendary Zethla, the "single-arrow legend". Whenever Zethla went hunting, he only carried a single arrow with him, yet never missed his hunting target. Neimi's deceased mother was a high-ranked cleric who left the clergy to get married; Neimi's most prized possession is a mirror that belonged to her mother.

Colm always defended her in front of bullies and protected her constantly, a habit he still practices. Colm is blunt and sometimes downright rude to Neimi, though his snide attitude crumbles when he sees her cry. They each have somewhat of a crush on each other, revealed in supports with other characters. Neimi says when Amelia asks her if there is a boy she likes, that "He's someone who's always watched over me, stood by my side. He used to make me cry, but I...I love him."

Neimi had her village burned down by the Bazba bandits, and most villagers were slaughered by the looters. She and Colm were the only ones able to escape the tragedy, and her friend left to steal back the mirror that the bandits stole from her. Despite her protests, he insisted to go alone. Though he took awhile to return, making Neimi worried.

Neimi then approaches Eirika and her army who were traveling around, seeking help to see if her friend was still alive. Upon knowing that she had her homeland destroyed, Eirika is touched and accepts her request, since Eirika believes that it's her duty to protect the countrymen of Renais.

With knowledge of the land, Neimi leads the group to the correct location where the bandits are located, and offers her skills with her bow to help them. Eirika wonders if she can keep herself out of danger and follow orders, and Seth commands Neimi to stay back and protect the princess. There, she finds Colm, who succesfully got her prized possession back, but is still trying to steal more from one of the bandits. Colm can be recruited by Neimi talking him into stopping his dangerous thiefing life and go back with her.

After realising they have no home to return, Neimi and Colm ask to go with Eirika in her journey, which she gladly accepts, despite Seth's resistance. Seth didn't trust them completly, since prior, Colm, while walking in the town had also stolen Eirika's bracelet, without Neimi's knowledge.

In the end, after the war, she returns to her village and has a quiet life, eventually she goes back to the capital of Renais and becomes an archery instructor to the military. If Neimi is paired with Colm, she marries him and they both have two children.


Neimi is a sweet girl, very sensitive and with low self esteem. She feels bad very easily; crying over the silliest things and apologizing to people for doing things without a thought. She always thinks that she has done something wrong, even if she hasn't. She's very insecure and second guesses herself a lot.

If Neimi is a combatant in the final battle against Fomortiis, she wonders confusingly if she should be in this important event. She is not really sure how she got involved in the great conflict as she doesn't have strong will and convictions, but she decided to help the cause even so, because she lost her home town and was searching another group to be part of; and she thinks that it's important that the forces of good win in the end, even though she isn't sure what her role in the war is.

Despite her lack of coping skills, Neimi is actually a great archer with an excellent shot. She holds her grandfather, that trained her, in high regards. She also has a love for animals and used to have a fox as a pet, and wishes to take more animals to raise when the war is over.

She has a childhood crush on Colm, but his harsh demeanor always makes her cry. It is unknown why he is so harsh with her most of the time, though it is implied that he is trying to train her out of her hyper-sensitivity.

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.

Neimi has good availability but has to deal with her horrible bases, as well as being locked to 5 movement until she promotes. As an Archer, she suffers from an inability to counter at close range, which renders her mostly useless on enemy phase and makes leveling her up rather slow. The majority of foes in Sacred Stones are quite weak, making the long-range chip damage of a bow unit comparatively less useful, particularly on Rout chapters where the primary objective is to kill as many enemies as possible. Players will have to consider if her potential ability is worth the effort needed to raise her, as many other units can accomplish the game objectives without needing nearly as many resources.

Neimi's saving grace is her promotion: the chapter 6 Orion's Bolt is only usable by her, so she faces no competition for promotion items. As a Sniper she will gain a whopping +3 strength upon promotion, as well as an increase to her bow rank (provided she has used her bow 10 times), granting her access to killer bows, which stack very well with a Colm support. The only downside is missing out on 1-range options and 7 movement. Sure Strike is also relatively useless; a raised Neimi should have no issues hitting her target. Ranger provides D-rank Swords, enabling close-range countering, an extra point of movement, and a mount, allowing for potent rescue-drops, turning Neimi into a very viable supportive attacker. However, with poor bases and growths defensively, she should not see a lot of enemy phase combat.

Overall, Neimi stuggles to make an impact as a player phase oriented unit in the enemy phase oriented Sacred Stones. Her Colm support is notable due to its superb availability (they start with a C support), fast growth, and crit boost to patch their classes' relatively low damage output. If you want to use Neimi, taking advantage of her and Colm's powerful support is advised.
