“I'm Peri! P for pulverize, E for eviscerate, R for ruin, and I for impale! Kee hee!”
—Peri introducing herself in Chapter 12 (Conquest)

Peri is a playable character in Fire Emblem Fates and an ally on the Conquest and Revelation routes.

ProfileEdit

Peri is a daughter of a noble family in Nohr and a subordinate to Prince Xander. Her supports with Laslow reveal that prior to the events of Fates, her mother (who she was very close to) was killed by a servant who became obsessed with her mother and wanted her forever. A very young Peri walked on the murder scene, initially thinking it was a lot of tomato juice that spilled before realizing that her mother was killed. She suffered severe emotional trauma as a result, which pretty much locked her mind and heart in a perpetually childish mindset.

Despite the servant being executed by her father, Peri still thought that any servant in her house was her mother's murderer, and took to murdering servants using mistakes as excuses. Even though her father was aware of this, he never said anything or got any help for his vengeful daughter, and she eventually left when the numbers began dwindling.

One day, Peri participated in a nobles' fighting tournament and ultimately placed third. Among the spectators of the tournament was Xander. Impressed by her character from watching her fight, Xander immediately summoned Peri to become his retainer, an offer she accepted. Should they achieve an S-Support, Xander reveals that he did so with the intention of marrying her.

Peri first appears in Chapter 12 alongside Laslow, assisting Xander in stopping Corrin.

In Chapter 26, Xander orders Peri and Laslow to stay in his room while he duels Corrin alone. Concerned with his safety, the two disobey his orders, grab several soldiers and rush to Xander's aid, worrying him even more. Peri can be killed or spared in the ensuing fight; if she is spared, it is unknown what happens to her after the battle.

PersonalityEdit

Peri mostly acts like a spoiled child, crying very easily when upset and will lash out violently. Such feelings stems from the murder of her beloved mother by a servant when Peri was a very young girl: she walked on the murder scene, saw her mother's corpse lying in a puddle of blood, and her whole mind and heart simply broke. She began violently lashing out against nearly all servants, even ones hired after her mother's death as she became unable to distinguish the one who killed her. Peri's father's general apathy toward her violently injuring servants further stunted her sense of morality, escalating to her outright murdering anyone she feels has wronged her. To further her childish behavior, in the Japanese version, Peri often refers to herself in the third-person, a trait usually expressed by young Japanese children or adults portrayed as childish.

Peri borderlines on sociopathic behavior, relishing in the act of murder though most instances are contained to the battlefield where such thoughts are acceptable. However, there are even several instances where she may have committed random acts of murder simply on impulse. Felicia spills tea on Peri during their support and she threatens to kill her if she does so again. When Felicia inevitably blunders again, Peri follows through on her threat without hesitation, though Felicia is only saved due to her own martial prowess.

Though she loves killing on a whim, Peri prefers opponents who are capable of defending themselves, and even respects a worthy opponent. This is shown in her supports with Corrin if they achieve a S-Rank support, as he promises to hire servants who will not die in a single stroke. In her supports with Felicia, after Peri fails to kill her, she compliments her martial prowess and even asks her to train the servants at her mansion so that they can at least fight back as well as she can.

Peri is shown to have some knowledge that her behavior is wrong, as shown in her supports with Jakob where it is not fun if the killing is directed at her. Her supports with Arthur also support this, as when Arthur brings her the blade she wanted, she considers that maybe stabbing does not have to be the solution for everything. Silas also presumes that Xander is partial to her. When Laslow asks her if she thinks of the people who are close to those she kills, this leaves her speechless and prompts her to tell him about her mother's murder. In some supports, her partner attempts to teach to teach her morality, but most fail and simply accept her murderous tendencies as a part of her.

At the end of the war, Peri seems to have calmed down better, when unmarried, her ending states that her cruelty faded, and if married, states that she eventually learned the difference between right and wrong. An exception to this is if she marries Odin or Laslow, in which case she vanishes along with her husband at the same time a string of missing-persons cases comes to an end.

Peri cooks the best out of everyone else in the army primarily because she always cooked her own meal due to her fear of poisoned food. This is highlighted greatly in her supports with Kaze, where he comments on the complexity and deliciousness of her snacks and her support with Selena, where she beats her in a cooking contest. Peri also reveals to Kaze that all of her cooking comes from natural talent, as she never had any formal training. She prefers cutting raw meat the most just to see the blood spill out of it.

It is shown in her supports with Kaden that she is afraid of bugs, usually killing them just because they "are in her way". The Boo Camp DLC also shows that she is afraid of mummies.

Base Class SetEdit

Peri generally performs well as a mage-killer since she has relatively high strength, speed, and resistance growths to allow her to reliably rush or kill magic users without incurring devastating counter damage. However, as she suffers from mediocre HP growth, she cannot sustain prolonged magic attacks as well as low Defense growths, making her less durable against physical weapons compared to the other Cavaliers. Nevertheless, her high movement can help her to enter range of mages, bait them closer to your allies for her or an ally to finish off. Her personal skill, Bloodthirst, grants her a 4-point boost to strength, magic, speed, and skill when she initiates a battle and defeats the enemy. This effect lasts until the start of the player's next turn. This makes Peri sync well with Azura as her singing can allow her to use her Personal skill in an offensive manner, rather than utilizing it only for counterattacks. Alternatively, if the Dark Falcon is available, she can become a potent solo unit killer as she can kill an enemy, refresh herself with Galeforce, and perform another turn of action without having to use Azura. However, her personal skill counts as a Rally effect, meaning that Rally bonuses will not stack on this skill.

Peri's base class line, Cavalier and comes with Elbow Room and Shelter when recruited. Elbow Room provides a 3 point boost on her attacks when she is on a terrain bonus-less tile such as a Plain or a Floor. Shelter is a good supportive skill to pull an ally unit into her, making them a Guard Stance ally. Depending on what the player wants to do with her, Peri's two promotions leads to different results.

Peri's first Promotion is the Paladin class, which keeps her relatively the same, though she gains more movement and resistance growths. Peri first learns Defender starting at Level 5 which gives her stats a 1 point bonus whenever she is the lead in a Guard Stance, synching well with Shelter for unit rescuing. These bonuses will also stack on her Personal Skill. At Level 15, Peri learns Aegis, which shaves damage from distance weapons, most notably Magic, further making her nearly unkillable by Mage units. Peri's semi-low Skill growths means that she may not have a high activation rate, but it still can activate with some reliability if she has gained a modest amount. If Peri's role as a mage-killer or a mage bait unit is working, this promotion is best to keep that role.

Peri's second promotion option is the Great Knight class. Peri gives some of her Speed, Luck, and Resistance in exchange for higher HP, Strength, and Defense growths. Normally, the Great Knight proves to be a Physical Tank more than a balanced unit, but Peri defensive growths equalizes in this class. While she loses her specialized role, she becomes an all-around tank compared to Silas or Xander. Peri learns Luna, one of her two attacking skills in her base class set, which ignores half of the enemy's defensive stat when attacking, which is good against particularly tanky units. She also learns Armored Blow, which further boosts her Defense when attacking, which can be useful given her semi-low defense growths, even when in this class. Overall, she is a more balanced tank compared to the other Cavaliers in the game in this class.

Secondary Class SetEdit

Peri's secondary class set is the Dark Mage class set. Peri's very poor base magic growth will likely prevent her from performing at even subpar standards for a spell caster, unless she's fed Stat Boosts. Regardless, the class set offers an interesting set of skills for expanding Peri's role as an anti-mage or clean-up.

The Dark Mage offers two skills: Heartseeker and Malefic Aura. Heartseeker reduces the avoid rate of adjacent enemies by 20, which can be useful for Peri's offensive playstyles as it boosts Peri's chance of hitting her enemies, especially considering her low Skill. Enemies within two spaces of Malefic Aura holders will incur 2 additional damage from any magic attack. This skill provides Peri an opportunity to slightly support allied magic users.

The Dark Mage promotes into the Sorcerer and Dark Knight classes. The Sorcerer class offers two skills: Vengeance and Bowbreaker. Vengeance is an offensive skill that, when activated, adds half of accrued damage to the user's might in battle; the rate of activation is 1.5 times the user's skill stat as a percentage. Peri may seldom see an effective Vengeance play because of her mediocre HP; nonetheless, it has the potential to deal bonus damage during counterattacks or in a pinch. Bowbreaker increases hit rate and avoid rate by 50 points during any combat against a bow-user. This is a nice offensive and defensive skill against the plethora of bow-users in all three routes, and it slightly improves Peri's offensive playstyles in clean-up. Peri lacks the solid foundation to make an effective Sorcerer (without the help of stat-boosting items or very lucky level-ups), but the Sorcerer class provides skills that slightly aid in her offensive capabilities.

The Dark Knight class is typically the better class for Peri. It offers growths comparable to the Great Knight's, has good mobility (same to the Paladin), and retains the use of swords as a physical weapon. The class offers two skills: Seal Magic and Lifetaker. Seal Magic temporarily reduces the enemy's magic stat by 6 points after any combat with the user. This greatly augments Peri's capabilities to mage-kill or bait magic users, since her high resistance allows her to tank magic attacks effectively. Lifetaker restores 50% of the user's health when the user initiates combat with an enemy and claims a kill. When combined with her own personal and Galeforce, it allows Peri to revitalize herself, gain extra bonuses and be able to attack more enemies during the player phase to take advantage of Bloodthirst. As Peri's magic growth is lackluster, it is best to avoid using magic if planning to keep her in this class; using Swords should be okay, however.

OverallEdit

Base SetEdit

Peri shares a lot of similarities to her original game, namely a lower emphasis on physical bulk in exchange for high Res which gives her an edge over most of her blue lance competition against dragons. With a solid offensive statline, Peri is very flexible option that is easy to obtain and merge on a budget. She is outclassed by some very potent competition for the same weapon-unit type combo or those who can do her role better.

Peri initially carried a Killer Lance which was an average lance with a special cooldown acceleration effect, but this later received a boost thanks to Weapon Refinery which brought the Slaying Lance into her kit which gave her a better Mt, and thus better damage. Peri is among the many who are blessed to receive a preferred weapon, Peri's Lance, which is yet another upgraded version of her original native weapon with 16 Mt, thus bringing her neutral Atk to 49. Its refine not only boosts her HP by 3, but also gives her a +4 boost to her four core stats when she is under 100% at the start of combat. She needs to be missing at least 1 HP to receive this boost, but this can be addressed through certain skills mentioned below. With it active, Peri can reach some very potent levels of damage and tankiness, but it is all dependent on the player to draw out its benefits to the fullest.

Glimmer gives Peri a damage boost of 50% which she can achieve with her good Atk and Spd to charge quickly with her Lance and unleash it in a single round. Resistance +3 is a flat Res boost that can be replaced with better options as it provides a meaningful boost only during lower levels. Threaten Defense inflicts a -5 Def penalty on enemies within two spaces of her at the start of her turn, reducing the enemy's ability to survive her assaults.

CountersEdit

Peri's got solid Res to resist most mages and dragons save for the most potent Green Mages and Dragons such as Nino, Soren, Fallen Male Robin, and Female Kana. Her physical bulk is on the lower side so most blue and green physical units can smash through her. Hector and other Axe Armors usually carry tremendous physical bulk and can take a hit and likely kill her with a single hit from countering her.

Skill InheritanceEdit

Peri's skills are relatively consistent for some of her sets, mainly usage of Reposition to manipulate enemy positioning and either Luna or Moonbow to outright ignore part of the enemy's Def so she can dish out more damage. Her Res makes her an excellent Ploy user or otherwise using cavalry support skills gives her synergy on such teams.

Her Res is suitable to bait mages and counter with Distant Counter equipped. If she inherited Berkut's Lance, she gains a massive +7 Res when an enemy initiates on her, bringing her res to a potent 37 neutral Res. With a value of 40 with a Res refine and without factoring other potential skills, Peri can reach an astronomically high Res that practically makes her impervious to magic and dragons.

Her new preferred lance gives her an interesting combo set since they synergize off of Fury as the flat 3 boost to her core stats comes at the cost of slight recoil. Once she has taken this recoil, her refined lance grants her plus 4 to her core stats, thus Peri's neutral stat spread for her four core stats becomes 56/40/30/37, which is nearly up to the same level as an Armor unit would. Complete with Desperation which forces her follow-up immediately after her first attack, Peri has incredible damage output that can be achieved with careful planning and smart usage of Fury to get her set going
