“Being family allows you to forgive some things you couldn’t otherwise. Though I understand it also makes other things unforgivable.”
—Palla in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Palla (Paula in the Italian version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem Gaiden, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and their remakes.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Palla is the eldest sister of Catria and Est, and raised them after their parents died. Loyal to Princess Minerva of Macedon, she was part of the Whitewings, an elite Pegasus squad from Macedon. The Whitewings wanted to join the Altean army alongside Minerva, but when Prince Michalis heard this, he locked his and Minerva's younger sister Maria, in jail to prevent Minerva and the sisters from turning on him. When Marth eventually rescued Maria, Palla and her sister Catria set off to look for Marth and Minerva. When they found them, they joined the Altean army. During the war, Palla developed a crush on Abel.

In Fire Emblem Gaiden, Palla and Catria journeyed to Zofia in search of the kidnapped Est, eventually joining with Celica's army to help them save Est and to aid Celica on her journey.

In Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, a rebellion against Minerva's rule broke out in Macedon and Palla was forced to flee, meeting up with Julian and learning that Lena and Maria were captured by Gharnef. She joined Marth's army in order to save Minerva and Maria. After the war, she pushed aside her feelings for Abel and continued serving Macedon.

Personality[edit | edit source]

As the elder sister of the three Whitewings from Archanea, Palla is mild-mannered and down to earth, always caring about her sisters. However, she also has a stubborn side and absolutely will not budge after a decision is made.

Palla has lingering feelings for Abel, and as such, refuses to find another lover on the request of Est with the excuse that the happiness of her sister (and to an extent, Abel) comes first, and also states in a base conversation that she refuses to admit her true feelings for this reason.

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.

Palla, and her sisters Catria and Est, are all Pegasus Knights recruited in Celica's route. When considering all of the Pegasus Knights in Gaiden, Palla is strong and durable but slow for a Pegasus Knight. Catria and Est are both strong all rounders whose balance between Speed and Strength usually makes them the most offensively potent, and Clair is very agile but fragile.

Although all 3 Pegasus Knight sisters are good units, Palla will likely wind up the weakest of the three if you choose to level all of them. Palla joins at the same time as Catria, and although she starts 3 levels above her sister, Catria actually starts out significantly stronger in most stats. When she closes the 3 level gap, the only stat Palla is likely to have more of is HP, and it is the only stat she is likely to beat her sisters at in the long run. By the late game, she will end up with a few more points of Strength and Defense than Catria, but Catria will blow her away in every other stat. While Est will statistically beat Palla in everything but HP, she does have the drawback of late recruitment and starting at a low level, meaning that Palla's early availability may prove to be of more use than Est's statistical superiority. Palla unfortunately has no way to fix her very poor Speed, which is the main thing that holds her back. Her Promotion to Falcon Knight doesn't fix the problem as the class has a low base speed of 5.

In all, Palla is still a good unit. She can tank decently well, still benefits from great mobility that ignores terrain, and does good damage due to her high Strength. However, where her sisters will probably Double Attack everything they encounter, Palla will have a lot more trouble doing so, particularly later in the game.

(Palla will leave the party if the player moves towards the Earth Mother's Shrine, however can be recruited again in the mountain village.)

Palla has some of the highest base stats of any unit in the entire game, despite joining as obscenely early as Chapter 3. She also joins at level 10, ripe for an immediate promotion into the Dracoknight, which is almost indisputably the best class in the entire game. Although many people choose not to use her because of her low speed growth, they often fail to take into account that she is only 4 points away from the speed cap at base, and will average capped speed naturally as a Dracoknight even if promoted immediately (and this is not taking into account the potential she has for starshard abuse). Her base weapon level means that at join time, she'll be able to wield virtually every single lance in the game, and in conjunction with her 10 flying movement on promotion, she'll prove to be easily one of your strongest units.

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.

Palla has stiff competition with her younger sister Catria, who has a higher growth rate in speed, as a considerably higher growth rate in luck, and no shabby stats across the board. However, Palla is has higher base stats and weapon ranks out of the gate, which is extremely important when it comes to fast paced play. As such, on extremely high paced play, Palla is generally better than Catria. In addition, since Caeda's effectiveness is greatly neutered in LTC and zero growth runs, Palla will be an excellent addition to your team. If you are playing at a more modest pace though (anything less than an extreme pace or a zero growth run), Catria and most other possible Pegasus Knights or Dracoknights will generally do better in the long run. She also generally does not have an overflow of speed, and thus does not have to worry about the low speed cap of the Dracoknight class, whereas Catria or Caeda would rather reclass into a Paladin, Swordmaster, or Sniper for that higher speed cap if required.

Overall, Palla has some key disadvantages over her younger sister Catria, but has enough to distinguish herself as a Dracoknight in regular play. However, in fast paced and zero growth runs, Palla will be a near essential flier in the mid to end game that will perform very well.

Palla joins as one of the strongest units in the game. Starting in Chapter 3, she is capable of wielding Silver Lances and easily makes ruin of most enemies early on in the game. She also joins at level 10 in a chapter which contains a Master Seal, making her a prime candidate for an optional early promotion. While on the game's higher difficulties, she'll often find herself slightly less capable than Catria in the near endgame due to the low speed growth she possesses, her amazing base speed prevents this from being too much of an issue (and even then, this is excluding just how many statboosters the player receives in New Mystery). Overall, Palla's fantastic base stats, solid growth rates, and early access to Silver Lances make her a standout unit on any difficulty.

Overall[edit | edit source]

Palla is an extremely polarizing unit in Echoes. She has some good bases for her join time, with higher strength than Catria but with slightly lower speed. Also, her growths are extremely different than what is normal for a Pegasus Knight. With 60% strength, she will hit very hard and utterly destroy monsters, and with 45% defense, she will start to become a monster tank, but will not be able to tank much else, thanks to her base 6 defense. However, her speed growth is a mediocre 30%. This means she will not be doubling much at all, perhaps even monsters. But, this means she will be a great user of the Saunion and weapon arts, which is usually overlooked due to the fact weapon arts cannot double (aside from a select few). As such, Palla fills a very niche role as a potential ranged physical nuke or a weapon arts abuser. She is very effective at this, and this is not even including the fact that she has the Triangle Attack with her sisters, Catria and Est, as well as get support bonuses from them. Of course, you could just throw on a Blessed Lance and call it a day. However, you would be sacrificing her specialty, and she will be inferior than all other Pegasus Knights if you do so. In the end, Palla requires some investment to use properly, but can be very effective at her specific niche.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Palla was one of the two Sword Fliers introduced at the very start of Heroes with Caeda being her only competitor at the time. She has a more well-rounded build than Caeda giving her a flexible role on her team. Unfortunately, many new Sword Fliers have joined the fray since then and have easily exceeded her in specific roles. Palla provides reliability as a dueling unit with average stats across the board, leaving no particularly strong weakness, but also at the cost of no real potent strengths.

Palla started with a Ruby Sword which boosts her damage when she has a color advantage while reducing her damage when in a disadvantage. Palla can use the effect to check many problematic Green units, but this also leaves her extremely vulnerable to blue units. She later received a new Preferred Weapon alongside her sisters, the Whitewing Blade, which is a stronger Ruby Sword, but with a powerful flier effect. If Palla is within two spaces of at least two Flier units, she gains +3 to her core stats. If she initiates an attack, she performs an immediate follow-up attack. The effect is extremely powerful, but coordinating your units to use it can be difficult. On Palla, this further allows her to demolish Green units which is especially useful for many fliers teams as a vast majority are Blue units and Palla can eliminate them for the rest of her flier comrades.

Moonbow is a fast charging Special which allows her to ignore 30% of the enemy Def when it activates, giving her a boost in damage. Wings of Mercy allows her to teleport to an injured ally, possibly allowing her to guard them against an enemy or to help move them out of danger with an inherited skill. Goad Fliers boosts flying ally Atk/Spd by 4 during combat if they are within two spaces of Palla. This syncs well with her refined Sword as it provides a boost to her allies in range.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Palla is utterly destroyed by all Blue units due to all of her swords in her kits enhancing her weakness to them. Any Blue with a manageable offense can take care of her easily from tanky Fallen Hardin, dueling Tana, or explosive mage Linde. Several Red units can also easily take care of her as her bulk is decent, but not high enough to entirely survive encounters with the likes of Zelgius and Ayra. As a flier, bows are especially dangerous for her as the effective damage they all have against her Flier status leaves her unlikely to survive an encounter with them.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]

Palla is one of many units who could be better off with a more general weapon than her preferred one. If sticking to her Whitewing Blade with its refine, improving her offense is a priority as her average Atk leaves a lot to desired. Regardless of her inherited weapon, Reposition is used in all of her preferred set as the positioning effect is extremely useful, especially on flier teams where terrain restrictions are a non-factor. Moonbow is her best overall special since she innately carries it. Hone Fliers is a general skill that provides excellent stat support for flier teams though she can use a plethora of other Skill C that can give boosts to a generalized team.

If keeping her Whitewing Sword and refining it, Death Blow provides the means to achieve this effect and benefits from her effect to guarantee the immediate follow-up when initiating. Chill Defense allows her to reduce the Def of the enemy who has the highest Def, which either sets herself up to counter high Def units like Hector or set up other enemies for her allies to counter. Flier Formation allows Palla move into a better range of her flier allies she can make full usage of her sword effect.

Palla can use Armorslayer to counter the prevalent Armor meta and give her a means to further punish armors like Hector or Amelia by dealing effective damage or take a Slaying Edge so she can accelerate her special cooldowns. Swift Sparrow or Fury provides initiated offensive stat boosts or flat all around stat boosts respectively. Guard can slow down Armors from charging their specials while Quick Riposte guarantees that she can double enemies due when she normally cannot since she has middling speed.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Spring Palla has a unique unit type combination being a Red Dagger Flier unit. Her stats are much more focused than her base form, having solid offensive stats and a decent magical bulk. She trades this for low physical bulk. Her unit type combination provides an excellent role as a highly mobile debuffer that can deal solid damage to green units thanks to having a color advantage.

Her Pegasus Carrot deals effective damage against armor units, allowing her to check the likes of Hector, Surtr, and Amelia easily. The most important aspect of the Carrot is its ability to neutralize status effects and disables skills that prevent follow-up attacks like Wary Fighter. While she needs to have a color advantage against them, this weapon is valuable for countering some common Armor sets. Since it is inheritable, it can be given to other color dagger units so they can exploit other armor units.

Draconic Aura boosts her Atk by 30% when it activates, giving her a decent boost in damage. Swift Sparrow is a valuable skill for the Atk/Spd +4 effect. Disarm Trap allows Palla to disable any Bolt Trap or Heavy Trap used on the enemy defense map. Hone Fliers grants an Atk/Spd +6 effect to adjacent Flier allies if they start their turn next to her.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Spring Palla’s low physical bulk leaves her vulnerable to most forms of physical offense. Even some hard hitting Greens can deal significant damage at least before going down if they reach her first. Otherwise straightforward physical blues easily take care of her. Dragon units can target her lower Def like Nowi, the various dragon forms of Tiki, and Female Corrin. Common Distant Counter units from Zelgius to Nailah can easily take a hit and kill her on retaliation. Bow units of any sort can easily shoot her down with a single shot as well.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]

Spring Palla’s weapon options are extremely flexible as the plethora of seasonal daggers and general daggers available to her are vast and she can use them all with effectiveness. From unit type countering daggers to heavy debuffing ones, the choice for her dagger is ultimately up to player preference.

The rest of her set is essentially focused on all-out offense as she should avoid being hit at all costs and luckily, requires very cheap and easy to acquire skills to create. Reposition is the go to unit positioning skill that works well on a flier-focused team. Moonbow is a worthy substitute for her special to further help her kill high Def units which are usually armor units. Desperation allows her to immediately launch her follow-up attack after her initial one once she is under a specific health threshold, useful for outright killing units to stop any potential counter attacks.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Duo Palla is a rather unique Duo unit as she instead has Catria and Est featured as allies. She is still a powerful and noteworthy addition to the roster if only held back that she is a limited hero, making it difficult to get merges. The immediate standout stat is her Atk at a strong neutral 39, though the rest of her stats are workable, but nothing particularly noteworthy. Her Spd is surprisingly middling for a flier unit, but she can make up for this easily with her kit and especially her weapon and Duo Skill, which helps her excel as one of the best flier lances to date and is fittingly suited to be used on a flier team.
Whitedown Spear grants her a flat +3 Atk, bringing her neutral Atk to 58 and a dominant 62 with an asset. Duo Palla gains the maximum benefits of her weapon if she is on a flier based team. If there are at least three fliers on her team (including herself), if she initiates combat, Duo Palla will inflict and Atk/Def -4 debuff on her foe during combat and guarantees a follow-up attack, fixing her Spd issue. Additionally, if there are at least two fliers within two spaces of her during combat, she will attack twice, allowing her to quad attack enemies under its full effects, an assault that very few units can survive
Her Duo Skill grants herself and adjacent flier allies one additional movement when activated, giving her an incredible movement range and makes her even more dangerous. It also self-refreshes itself at the start of odd-numbered turns, giving her repeated usage of this skill to dominate enemies.
Reposition allows Duo Palla the ability to position allies away from danger. Mirror Impact grants her Atk +6 and Res +10 during combat that she initiates, perfectly syncing with her Spear and increasing mainly her combat capabilities against Dragons and Close counter mages/staff units. Chill Attack Speed inflicts Atk/Sp -5 onto the foe with the highest Atk/Spd sum, mainly to prevent some enemies from being about to double attack her. Goad Fliers grants allies within two spaces of her Atk/Spd +4 during combat, allowing her to return the favor to her allies by keeping them in range so they too can excell in combat.

Counters[edit | edit source]

As a Duo Unit, her skill is a non-factor when facing off against a Defense team Duo Palla. Her greatest strength is also her weakness as she needs to be an essentially a pure flier team to make the most of all of her effects, meaning that a single archer can decimate her and her fellow flier team. She is also at her strongest during her turn but is significantly weaker during the enemy's as she loses half of the Whitedown Spear's effect. In fact, taking out her teammates will immediately turn the weapon into just a hard hitting weapon that can at best attack twice.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]
Given that she shines best on a flier team, giving her allies with flier skills not only gives her a great boost in performance, but also nicely pairs with Glimmer to turn those buffs into more damage. Desperation allows her to immediately unleash her four quad-attack at once she has met the damage threshold to activate the skill.
