— Shanna, to Thite in a support conversation.
Shanna (シャニー Thany) is a trainee Ilian Pegasus Knight and mercenary, and the younger sister of fellow Pegasus Knights Juno and Thite. She serves with Deke's mercenary squad as part of her training, having worked in the field for a year prior to the onset of the Disturbance of Bern, and was hired into the service of Roy of Pherae during the Disturbance.
When Bern's army first threatened to press on into Lycia, Pherae's Lord Eliwood hired Deke's band as reinforcements for the Pheraen army led by his son, Roy. Designated to meet at the frontier between Lycia and Bern, the band arrived to find a skirmish already underway, and Shanna was tasked to find Roy, then return to Deke and report on his status. After rescuing Elen's mistress, they integrated into Roy's army and served with him for the rest of the war as part of the joint Lycia/Etruria army.
Later, during the Western Isles campaign, Shanna encountered one of her older sisters, Thite, in the battlefield in the employ of an Etrurian unit serving Arcardo; however, she could only convince Thite to not attack Roy until he consulted with Thite's employer. With Klein's defection to Roy, Shanna successfully convinced Thite to join the Lycian army as well.

Personality and character
Shanna is a cheerful girl. She can be rash in the battlefield, which is criticized by her fellow mercenaries. She does not take it very well; depending on the person, she protests in reply, or even makes jokes to change the topic. She can be quite cheeky towards her comrades. She is prone to assume things, though, a bad habit she is aware of. Her cheerful disposition seems to be dampened only when confronting a comrade.
Shanna loves her family dearly, and is overjoyed at the news of having a niece. As the youngest sister, she is used to being doted on by her sisters, and likes laughing at the more reserved Thite's attempts of showing affection.

Shanna, Cheerful Knight
Short: Returned home and was knighted.
Long: After the war, Shanna was knighted and became a full-fledged Pegasus Knight. Throughout her career, she served as lieutenant and squad leader, and she eventually rose to the position of Flightleader of Ilia. Her cheerful personality earned her much admiration and respect from her colleagues.
Roy and Shanna
Shanna gave up the path of the Pegasus Knight and went to Pherae with Roy, where they married. Rebuilding the battered land was a painful process, but her cheerful personality encouraged many people to rise up and help lead Lycia to prosperity again.

- ↑ "Juno: It's already been a year since you left for your training... Are you getting along with the members of the mercenary band? I heard they were all men, but are you doing all right?" - Shanna and Juno's C support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
- ↑ "Wade: Don't be scurrying around the front lines so much.
Shanna: What!? Scurrying around!?
Wade: It's annoying when some weakling who gets shot down so easily by a puny archer is flying around all over the place!
Shanna: Oh, yeah!? Well, it's a pain for me to have some slow axefighter with no brains fighting near me as well! Haven't you ever heard of the concept of dodging?" - Shanna and Wade's C support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
- ↑ "Shanna: Shoot, just 'compared to before,' huh... Oh yeah, I had something to tell you, too.
Lot: Something to tell me?
Shanna: Yeah. The things that you should be careful of in battle! Do you want to hear them?
Lot: Well, yeah.
Shanna: Then give me your ear for a sec.
Lot: Okay... Like this?
Shanna: ...Don't stress yourself too much, big brother.
Lot: What the...!
Shanna: And that was from Lot's cute little sister!" - Shanna and Lot's A support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
- ↑ "Shanna: Hey, Captain!
Deke: Shanna, please. Not 'Captain.'
Shanna: Why? Back in Ilia, we always call our leader the captain.
Deke: It doesn't suit me.
Shanna: All right, um... Okay, then I'll call you Bro, like Lot and Ward do.
Shanna: Shoot, can't use that, either?" - Shanna and Deke's C support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Shanna: How come you're always so concerned about me? Oh wait, I get it. Aww, I never knew you felt that way about me!

- ↑ "Roy: Then everything's fine, then.
Shanna: I'll look foward to going.
Roy: Sure. If you like it, you can stay as long as you want.
Shanna: Master Roy is so nice... Inviting a mercenary like me to his hometown, and saying that I can stay as long as I want... Wait...does that mean...? No no, don't get cocky... But still...hmm..." - Roy and Shanna's A support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
- ↑ "Sigune: You... You're Juno's youngest sister. You would fight me?

- ↑ "Juno: While you were away, we had a baby girl.
Shanna: What!? A baby between you and Zelots!? Where, where? I want to carry her...
Juno: I can't bring her to the battlefield, Shanna. I entrusted her to the nannies back home. You can see her when we go home.
Shanna: Yay! Juno's baby...she must be so cute! Oh, I really want to see her." - Shanna and Juno's A support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
- ↑ "Thite: Shanna... ...Um...
Shanna: W-What the!? What did you just do!?
Thite: Juno, she... She used to pet our heads like this, right? I'm your big sister too, so... I thought I should make you feel better...
Thite: Shanna, I'm sorry... I can't be kind like Juno, can I...
Shanna: Thite... ...Did you hit your head or something?
Thite: ...... This child... All right, I don't care anymore. You can fend for yourself from now on!
Shanna: Hey, wait! Sorry! I just had to say it..." - Shanna and Thite's B support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
