“I'm at fault for being a child too long. My eyes have been closed. But my heart has been opened. I can imagine, a little, what it must feel like to live in your world. Still you find it in yourself to sing. And so must I.”
—Shigure to Azura in his Paralogue Surprise Duet

Shigure is a playable character in Fire Emblem Fates.

ProfileEdit

All RoutesEdit

Shigure is the son of Azura who inherited her beautiful singing voice. He is also the biological grandson of Arete. Like other children in Fates, Shigure was raised in his own Deeprealm world where he made many friends. Unfortunately, his happiness was broken when Vallite soldiers attacked his Deeprealm, forcing him to flee.

In his Paralogue, Shigure is fleeing the Vallites when he crashes onto a ship that Corrin and their allies were on. Azura is surprised to see him here, but he tells her that strange warriors had been pursuing him from his Deeprealm. Azura is surprised that they are also targeting him, while Shigure is unaware about his mother's powers and the past. Two large ships broadside theirs in the process. Shigure asks Azura if he may fight so that he may avenge his friends, but Azura refuses to let him and asks him to hide somewhere, much to his disappointment. After the battle, Azura tells him that she went to his Deeprealm to find the village destroyed and its inhabitants killed. Shigure sings Lost in Thoughts All Alone as a requiem for his fallen friends. He then asks her if he may join them, having no where else to go. She initially rejects his offer, but changes her mind so that she may protect him.

If unmarried, his ending mentions that following the war he served the Hoshidan government's administration for the rest of his life.

Heirs of FateEdit

A different Shigure acts as the narrator of the DLC Heirs of Fate set, giving the player insight about his world where Corrin and their allies tried to defeat Anankos (therefore following the Revelation path), but failed to. While it is unknown what happened to them, it can be presumed that they died and were returned as corpses bent to Anankos' rule, barring Corrin and Azura.

Shigure learns the fourth and final verse of Lost in Thoughts All Alone and is told of the consequences that could happen if he sung it. Shigure spends his time during the first three parts of Heirs of Fate singing about several phrases and gives a mysterious meaning behind it. He does not actually appear until Heirs of Fate 4, where he stops both Kanas from fighting each other in dragon form and explains to them about his world, and is distraught with worry when the Hoshidan and Nohrian children leave due to conflicting reports about the war.

In Heirs of Fate 5, Shigure is with the two Kanas who support his actions and shows concern about the other children who rashly left after refusing to believe each other. They are ambushed by Arete, Sumeragi and Mikoto, but some of the Hoshidan and Nohrian children return and help them out. At the end of the battle, they reach Castle Gyges, where Shigure uses a crystal to forcibly warp the rest of the children away while goes ahead and confronts Anankos to sing the last verse of Lost in Thoughts All Alone, thanking them for their company.

In Heirs of Fate 6, Shigure confronts Anankos, who in his insanity, mistakes him as Cadros. Shigure prepares to sing the fourth verse of the song, while Anankos pleads with him not to, as he is aware of what will happen if he does. Shigure is suddenly stopped by the children, who teleported back in with the the same crystals Anankos had given to Odin and Laslow, which the two respectively passed to Ophelia and Soleil before their deaths. While Shigure is upset with the fact that he was close to stopping Anankos, Anankos views this as betrayal and summons his Vallite forces to stop him.

After the battle, if any of the children died, Shigure laments their death, saying that they did not deserve to die there. Despite this, he thanks both Kanas for helping him save his world.

If all of the children survived, they have one final conversation with each other before their memories of the event fade away, as it replaced the "person" part of the component of the verse. Before the children return to their original realms, he suggests to use the phrase "It's good to meet you." followed with a smile if they somehow manage to encounter each other again, which the other children agree. At an end scene, Shigure uses this phrase when he meets both Kanas again.

Regardless of the outcome, Shigure throws his mother's pendant into a nearby spring, hoping that no one will ever find and use its powers again.

PersonalityEdit

Shigure has a natural love for the arts and is especially fond of singing like his mother. He is also a skilled painter, as shown in his supports with his father and during the DLC Anna on the Run where he says that despite being a skilled painter, cannot tell any difference between the brothers in the pirate gang. Humble, Shigure does not let many people see his painting and even initially refuses to have a tent exhibit of his art when his father first suggests it.

Shigure loves his parents, painting a special picture of the two which he claims is his greatest work, a sentiment his father shares. Shigure is aware of the dangers that his mother's abilities are doing to her during the war. Nonetheless, he respects her decision to bear the burden and upholds a promise to rid her pendant should she die.

Calm and serene, Shigure has an affinity for woodland creatures who are drawn to his gentle aura and singing ability. Even large bears are tame and mild around him. He can be socially awkward and has difficulty matching the pace of some of his more excitable fellow children and even initially refuses to bond with his sibling until he realizes that he was being cold. This also makes him moody at times, but is quick to apologize for any sort of rude front he may be projecting at them.

Shigure developed a close bond with his Deeprealm caretakers, notably wailing when news arrived that none survived the attack by invisible soldiers. The reason for Shigure's hairstyle is revealed in his supports with Sophie. One of his old vassals, who Shigure was pretty close to, used to wear his hair like that. They traded hairstyles the day before their village was attacked. Shigure decided to keep it that way to honor his friend. Shigure greatly cares for his mount and the two often ride together during downtime, establishing a close bond that he brings up in several supports such as with Caeldori and Selkie. His riding ability is due to the fact that he likes high places the most in the army.

*Shigure will receive whatever secondary class that a Female Corrin and a Female Kana who isn't his sister have access to, if he has achieved an S Support with either of them.

**Shigure will receive Wyvern Rider from Azura if Jakob is his father, because of class conflict. Both parents pass down their classes, Father's class will pass down first, then the Mother's class. Since the Songstress class cannot be passed down to any of Azura's children, the game would normally look into her reclass, Sky Knight. But this is also Shigure's base class, so the game will instead look into the parallel class from Azura's base one, which is Troubadour. And since this class is already passed down by Jakob, the game will then finally look into the parallel class of Azura's reclass, thus granting Shigure Wyvern Rider.

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.
Base Class SetEdit

Shigure is one of the most flexible child units in Fates; this is due to his incredibly balanced base stat growths (minus the paternal bonuses) with only his Health and Defense lacking slightly, but these are offset by his decent Resistance growth, meaning that he can be an efficient mage-killer. Depending on the parent, these growths can either be ironed out to be more balanced, or imbalance them even more, making him specialize in one role compared to his versatility otherwise; for example, Arthur makes Shigure's growths more balanced, with his Resistance and Defense being only slightly below average with a huge dent in his Luck growth. If you wish to create a stronger but less sturdy unit, on the other hand, puts a massive emphasis on his Strength and Skill growths, meaning that Shigure becomes a more combat-oriented unit.

His personal skill, Perfect Pitch, is a Rally Ability that help keep his surrounding allies healthy, but comes with a few obstacles. First is that Shigure will have issues healing allied units if he is injured, as he can only heal units with less HP than himself. Second, while Perfect Pitch will heal high (Max) HP units more, he will be able to do so less if their HP is higher than his Max HP. What this means is that to get the most out of personal skill, players should consider having his father have a HP growth stat, possibly even a class with a High HP limit. Another consideration towards using Perfect Pitch is a form of easy self-healing, either by using the Quick Salve or Renewal Skills or Blessed weapons in case of injury. Perfect Pitch stacks with other rally skills, making Shigure a natural candidate for being a rally unit: his default class sets give him access to Rally Resistance and Rally Speed, but he can also access the likes of Rally Strength and Rally Skill from his partner sets in Conquest and Rally Magic as well as Rally Luck in Birthright. If Azura marries Jakob, Shigure can gain Rally Defense as well thanks to the Wyvern Lord class.
