God, I can't stand conceited men like him. I need a man the calibre of my dear brother. That's why I'll never marry.
— Raquesis, on Elliot

Raquesis (ラケシス Rackesis) was a princess of the Agustrian state of Nordion, and the younger sister of its king Eldigan. A friend of Sigurd of Chalphy like her brother, she allied with Sigurd when Nordion was beseiged by Elliot of Heirhein and in the Agustrian civil war, despite this putting her at odds with Eldigan, who reluctantly continued to serve King Chagall. After Eldigan's execution, she accompanied Sigurd's army in his exile in Silesse.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


While Eldigan was in Agusty parleying with his liege, King Chagall, Raquesis remained at Nordion under the protection of three of Eldigan's Cross Knights: Eva, Eve and Alva. With Eldigan gone, Elliot of Heirhein attempted to assault Nordion in retaliation for Raquesis spurning his advances, but was stopped by Raquesis with the support of Sigurd and his army, which came to assist from Evans.

Personality and character

Raquesis is prideful, strong-willed and will not hesitate to make her objections to others known. Fiercely independent, she particularly objects to those who attempt to make decisions on her behalf. She holds her brother Eldigan in the utmost regard and respect, worries greatly about his safety, and uses him as a benchmark to compare the caliber of other people, particularly potential suitors; as far as she is concerned, nobody is as good as Eldigan.
