Lyndis (Japanese: リンディス, Lindis), more commonly known as Lyn (Japanese: リン, Lin), is one of the Lorca tribe of Sacae, the sole survivor of a massacre of the tribe by the bandits of Taliver. She is the daughter of Hassar, the Lorca chieftain, and Madelyn, the daughter of Lord Hausen of Caelin, and she was named for her late grandmother, Hausen's wife; both of her parents perished in the Taliver assault. Some months after the demise of her tribe, she was embroiled in an inheritance dispute spearheaded by her granduncle Lundgren after learning of her Caelin heritage, and a year afterward joined Eliwood and Hector in their investigations into the Black Fang and the activities of Nergal.

Lyn is one of the three lord characters of Fire Emblem, along with Eliwood and Hector; unlike her co-stars, she was created specifically for Fire Emblem, as was the territory of Caelin, and as such her ultimate fate is not even hinted at in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, the chronological successor game. She is one of the small few female lords in the series, alongside Celica, Eirika, and Micaiah.

Lyn's tale

Months after the death of her parents and the rest of her tribe, living alone in some corner of Sacae, Lyn found a tactician on the ground. She asked to travel with him so she could seek to avenge her dead parents. In Bulgar, she met Sain and Kent, knights of Caelin who were tasked with finding and informing her of her true heritage: that she is the granddaughter of Hausen, Caelin's marquess. From there, her journey changed to travelling to Caelin to to meet her grandfather. Early on, they stopped at a Sacaen shrine and acquire the Mani Katti, a sacred sword that only Lyn can use.

As her journey progressed, it arose that Lundgren, Hausen's younger brother, sought to end her life to ensure his succession to the rule of Caelin by dispatching mercenaries and bandits after her. All the same, Lyn met many companions that joined her in her journey, including Eliwood, the son of the marquess of Pherae, who assisted her from behind the scenes late in her journey. Ultimately, she reached Castle Caelin and slew Lundgren in battle. She was then taken to meet her grandfather, almost dead from the extensive poisoning by Lundgren, who was relieved to at least meet her before his death; she convinced him that he still has much living to do, and he quickly recovered. Still, due to his illness, Lyn took on many of his duties.

Eliwood/Hector's tale

One year later, with Caelin still largely under her care, the army of Laus came to Caelin while fleeing Laus itself and attacked the castle. On Hausen's orders, she fled the castle with Sain, Kent, Florina and Wil, leaving him trapped within under the Laus occupation. She dispatched Florina to quickly fly away to find help while the rest of the group stayed put in the dense, movement-hindering forests; Florina found that Eliwood and Hector's group were approaching, and so the two groups eventually united and worked together to free Caelin, with Lyn meeting Eliwood again. After the suppression of the Bern occupation, they found Hausen in the back rooms of the castle, injured by knife-wound from Ephidel but still alive, and first learned of the involvement of the Black Fang in Laus's insurrection. After ensuring that Caelin and her grandfather would be looked after, Lyn set out to accompany Eliwood and Hector for the remainder of their quest; traveling through Bern and to Valor. Along the way, she frequently provided advice and ideas to Eliwood and Hector, acting as a voice of restraint to Hector's brash ways.

Personality and character

Lyn is a friendly, determined character who tries hard to reach her goals. She is quite positive and believes that she can achieve her goals. She has pride in her Sacae heritage, and is not willing to tolerate when that is insulted. As a lady of the Sacae plains, she never lies. She is strong and often slightly offended when anyone underestimates her because of her gender. Additionally, since she was brought up outside of the palaces of Lycia, she knows little of noble manners and customs. This does not mean she is savage, though, and Lyn is very friendly and polite to those around her. She has a strong sense of justice and is very persistent.

Lyn is the daughter of Hassar, the chieftain of the Lorca tribe, and Madelyn, the daughter of Lord Hausen of Caelin. Because she was raised in the Lorca tribe, she does not know of her mother's origins, nor her own noble blood.

As a child, she learned the ways of the plains and grew up happily with her parents. To most she was known as Lyn, but her real name is Lyndis, which her parents called her when they were alone. She learned the ways of the sword from her father during this time. In addition, sometime during her life on the plains, she met Florina, a pegasus knight in-training, who had fallen from her pegasus after being chased by bees. After Lyn helped her, they became good friends.

A few months before the events of her story in the game, Taliver bandits massacred the tribe, leaving Lyn as the only survivor. Afterwards, the game's story begins.

Lyn's story

Lyn, the Swordfighter from Sacae
Lyn now lives with her grandfather as Lady Lyndis of Castle Caelin. Under her loving care, Lord Hausen recovers, and now the two of them go for many walks in the Caelin gardens.

On clear, dry nights, Lyn can be seen high atop a hill near the castle. Perhaps she is remembering the home of her youth, the plains of Sacae.

Eliwood/Hector's story

Lyn, Noblewoman of Sacae
Lyn entrusted Caelin's rule to Ostia and returned to the plains of her birth. She often thinks fondly on the people of Caelin.

Rath and Lyn
When her grandfather died, Lyn asked that Caelin be taken under Ostian protection. She set out for Sacae, where she was reunited with Rath of the Kutolah. They had a daughter and lived happily in the plains.

Lyn and Florina
When her grandfather died, Lyn asked that Caelin be taken under Ostian protection. She set out for Sacae with her friend Florina. Though Florina returned to Ilia, their friendship lasted forever.

Kent and Lyn
When her grandfather died, Lyn asked that Caelin be taken under Ostian protection. She set out for Sacae with her former vassal and new love, Kent. The people of Caelin gave them their blessings.

Hector and Lyn
Hector succeeded his brother as the marquess of Ostia, but the pain of his brother's death weighed heavily on him. His beloved Lyn gave him comfort and helped him become an enlightened leader.

Eliwood and Lyn
The marquess of Pherae and the princess of Caelin were wed after the conflict. All of Lycia was in an uproar, but none could sunder their bond of love. They have a son named Roy, who will become a great hero.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

This article or section is a short summary of Lyn.
SmashWiki features a more in-depth article.
SSBB Lyn.png

Lyn appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as an Assist Trophy. After appearing, she will crouch, saying, "I'll handle this." or "Prepare yourself." After a few seconds, she attacks, quick as lightning, saying, "Taste my blade!" She is nearly impossible to dodge and almost always results in dealing a one-hit KO. Because of this, she is regarded as one of the best Assist Trophies in the game.

Lyn also appears as both a collectible trophy and a collectible sticker (in Brawl only).
