“I hope our efforts end this war quickly. I don't want to see anyone else die.”
—Tana in a support conversation with Cormag in The Sacred Stones

Tana (Dana in the Italian version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is the princess of Frelia, and the younger sister of Innes. She is a pegasus rider, and old friend of Eirika and Ephraim.

Profile

Tana is the younger child of king Hayden of Frelia. She and her brother Innes are childhood friends of Eirika and Ephraim, as both are heirs of the allied kingdom of Renais. Frelia is a country known for it's army of pegasus riders, and Tana notably trained under the pegasus knights Vanessa and Syrene. Her pegasus is named Achaeus, name given by Syrene, who Tana seems to idolize and treats her as sort of a mentor towards her.

Tana is first met in the Border Mulan, a place she had gone to help her friend Eirika who was escaping her kingdom, but she ended captured instead. Later, when she is freed by Eirika's army, Tana hosts Eirika, her twin brother Ephraim and their army in her castle in Frelia, and invites them to a war council with her father and brother, to decide their next steps.

She officially joins the army in order to accompany her comrades and older brother to war. The circumstances in which she gets involved in the war vary, depending on the path taken: in Ephraim's path, she runs away from home and is captured when she was tracking Ephraim's group after they leave Frelia, but in Eirika's path, she directly goes to Eirika and asks to join her troops. Regardless of route, without thinking about her own well-being, she went to help the friends of hers.

Tana appears to harbor a crush on her old friend Ephraim, even though he is oblivious all the time of her feelings. She can also move on from his feelings for him and romance Cormag. In Ephraim's route exclusively, Tana is the one that can recruit Cormag if she talks with him. In Eirika's route his recruitment requirements are different though.

Epilogue

After the war Tana, is said to lead a happy life in Frelia, and kept her close relationship with Eirika. If she is paired with Ephraim, she will marry him and become queen consort of Renais. If Tana is paired with Cormag, she returns to her country and search after him for years, until she finally finds him and consecrates Cormag her knight .

Personality

Tana is cheery, sociable, and a little naïve. Her happiness and sociability seem to spread to others, as she is able to become friends with Marisa even though she is noticeably unsociable; this is also seen when she recruits the angry and hurt Cormag by basically sweet-talking him into re-considering his conflicted loyalty to Vigarde as well as his thoughts on Duessel's defection. She also strongly refuses to have people taking care of her, wishing to be seen as more of an adult than a young girl in battle and determined to not let her princess status keep her away from the harsh reality.

Tana is kind and loved by her people. Her personality is the opposite of her brother's, to the point that she envies Ephraim and Eirika's close sibling relationship and wishes her own relationship with the stoic, arrogant Innes was closer. Despite the many fights between Tana and Innes, they actually adore each other.

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.

Of the four available flying units in the game, Tana has the highest overall stats, though Vanessa seems to excel more quickly. Promoting her to a Wyvern Knight will give her 3 more points of constitution, which will allow her to wield heavier lances while losing less Attack Speed. She is a much more durable choice than Vanessa as both a Falcon or Wyvern Knight, due to her higher HP and luck, allowing her to take more hits. On the other hand, Vanessa, while having less strength and durability, has higher skill, and slightly higher resistance. Tana's HP and defense early on are negated by her phenomenal speed and luck growths, making her nearly untouchable.

Tana is a good option to support Cormag with because of their equal movement and Cormag's fire affinity, which increases her offenses. She can initiate the Triangle Attack with the other two Pegasus Knights, as long as 2 of the three are Falcon Knights, even if she is a Wyvern Knight.

A Support with Ephraim
"Once Renais was stable again, Ephraim and Tana were wed. Innes protested vocally, but when he saw how happy Tana was, he gave the marriage his blessings. Renais and Frelia are now bound by blood as well as friendship."

Etymology

Tana is an unisex name of diverse origins. The feminine version of Tana means "dream" in Chuukese. It also means "chameleon" in Malagasy language.

Her japanese name, Turner, is a common surname from anglo-french origins, an occupational name for a maker of objects of wood, metal, or bones.

Trivia

  • In the Beta version of the game, Tana was planned to be a General, but changed to a Pegasus Knight in the final version. She also was not the princess of Frelia, with Amelia in that role instead.
  • Tana is the only playable princess from The Sacred Stones that is not playable or even seen in Awakening.
  • In her A support with Ephraim, she will mention that Eirika helped her prepare lunch, even if the player went with Ephraim to Grado, and have yet to reunite with Eirika.
    • In a similar vein, she can acquire her B support with Eirika without having yet recruited Innes, but their B support starts with Tana upset that Innes told her to go home.
  • In the Japanese version of her paired ending with Cormag, it mentions that Cormag became her closest aide and she placed immense trust in him.
    • In their A support, the talk about woodworking was added into the English version. Cormag simply tells her he might disappear and may never have the chance to take up her offer to join Frelia's army. She responds that, if he does disappear, she'll just go out and find him.
  • Tana shares her Heroes English voice actress Melissa Fahn with Maribelle from Awakening.
