“No matter the pain it might cause me, I have made my decision. Not even your words could sway me, my brother.”
—Olwen to Reinhardt in Thracia 776

Olwen is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is the eighteen-year-old younger sister of Reinhardt, whom she initially admires. She leads a reconnaissance squad in the Friege army.

ProfileEdit

Olwen makes her first appearance in Chapter 10 of Thracia 776 when she and her subordinate, Fred, are working on surveillance duty at Noel Canyon. In their scene with Largo, it is revealed that Olwen has a strong dislike for Kempf, who despises her out of envy towards Reinhardt. When Noel Canyon is attacked by Leif's army, Olwen and Fred fight against them for a short while, but eventually decide to leave in order to ask Kempf for reinforcements.

At the start of Chapter 11, Olwen requests reinforcements from Kempf, who points out her failure to identify the enemy army that attacked Noel Canyon. Once Kempf openly shows his disregard for Largo's life, she speaks out against him in shock. After he taunts her and claims that Reinhardt's greatest skill is seducing women, Olwen attacks Kempf out of anger, causing him to label her as a traitor. Following her imprisonment in Dandrum Fortress, Kempf reveals that he intentionally provoked her in hopes of removing Reinhardt from his position. He also uses Olwen as a hostage to force Fred to fight against Leif's army to the death.

In her cell, Olwen finds several children. Upon learning that they were captured in the child hunts, she becomes horrified by the actions of her country. She is later rescued by Fred, and reveals that she now doubts their cause. Fred advises her to join Leif's army alongside him, which she agrees to after hearing that Leif's ideals are similar to her own.

In Chapter 16A, Olwen asks Leif to allow her to approach Kempf in order to provoke him. If she speaks to Kempf during the chapter, she points out his cowardice and inability to compare to her brother. Her words deeply anger Kempf, causing him to abandon his strategic position of defense that he had been ordered to remain at.

During the battle against Reinhardt in Chapter 22, Olwen can speak to him. In their conversation, she reveals that she has chosen her own path of standing against the Grannvale Empire, with her reason being her opposition to the child hunts. She also receives the Blessed Sword from Reinhardt as a parting gift.

After the war, Olwen returns to Friege and contributes in its reconstruction. It is mentioned that whenever she remembers Reinhardt, she becomes infuriated by how pitiful he was. She also marries Fred, who is surprisingly ordinary, much unlike her brother.

OverallEdit

Olwen has below average base stats, especially for a prepromoted unit. Her prepromoted status means she will gain EXP slowly and while her offensive growths are good, her defensive growths are still lacking. Due to her low durability, she will have trouble surviving enemy attacks and is better suited for doing Player Phase combat. Her main advantages are her being mounted, her strong personal weapons such the Dire Thunder and the Blessed Sword, as well as her PCC of 4.

Despite her frailty, Olwen can become an Enemy Phase combat unit if she is given the Ambush scroll. With Dire Thunder, this allows her to obliterate enemies before they can attack her. However, this can be unreliable as her hit rates are not particularly high, and if she misses she risks getting doubled and even killed as Dire Thunder lowers her attack speed by 12. In order to patch up her hit rates, she should be near a unit with Charisma or Leif in order to gain a hit bonus.

Aside from the Dire Thunder, Olwen can opt to use Wind instead as it has a more reliable hit rate and 10 innate crit. With her 4 PCC and a Leif support, she can use it to get guaranteed crits on second attacks against enemies. She can also quickly reach A rank thunder, which lets her use Bolting and attack enemies from far away. Due to her poor strength and underwhelming sword rank, it is not recommended to give her any swords apart from the Blessed Sword.

It should be noted that one cannot recruit Ilios without killing Olwen or leaving her recruited. If the player is deciding between which of the two to use, Illios is generally better than Olwen due to his much better bulk, speed and higher sword rank. He is covered more in-depth in his own unit page.
