Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

No, I'm staying. There's bound to be more injuries further along. I want to help others in the service of the Lord.
— Adean, to Sigurd

(Japanese: エーディン Adean) is a nun and noblewoman from Grannvale's Jungby dukedom, a descendant of the Crusader Ulir, the daughter of Lord Ring and the sister of Briggid and Andorey. While the bulk of Grannvale's army was off to war in Isaach, Verdane launched a small-scale invasion, successfully seizing Castle Jungby and kidnapping Adean, with the kingdom's Prince Gandolf taking her back to Verdane. While her childhood friend Sigurd led his few remaining knights into Verdane to rescue her, she was released from their imprisonment by Prince Jamke to travel to meet up with Sigurd's forces, with which she remains throughout Sigurd's troubles with Grannvale until the Battle of Belhalla, which she survived.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Despite their determination to protect Adean when the forces of Verdane surrounded Castle Jungby, Midayle and the other Jungby knights fell to Prince Gandolf and his army. Gandolf took Adean with him back to Jungby, mentioning to his subordinate Gerrard that he intended to marry her. Adean was imprisoned in Castle Marpha, Gandolf's castle, awaiting his attention following the suppression of the invading Chalphy forces; during her imprisonment, she met Deirdre and told her about Sigurd[1]. Prince Jamke came to Marpha to free her, along with the arrested thief Dew at her request; he instructed the two to flee while he returned to the capital to attempt to persuade his father, King Batou, to stop the conflict[2].

Upon reuniting with Sigurd, she refused his request to head back to Jungby, determined to help others with her healing abilities. She mentioned that she was motivated to join the nunnery to help her find her lost twin sister Briggid and give her, the major-blooded descendant of Ulir, the Yewfelle to wield. The two did indeed eventually reunite during the fight with the pirates of Orgahill which Briggid had led until very recently; while Briggid initially disbelieved her, Adean confirmed her identity by giving her the Yewfelle and having her successfully attempt to use it[3].

Adean was one of the few known survivors of the Battle of Belhalla. At some point after the battle, she travelled to Tirnanog, a village in Isaach, and became an abbess at its convent[4]. There, she helped Oifey and Shanan raise Seliph, Larcei, Ulster and Delmud, acting as a surrogate mother to the four; she also had her own children, Lana and Lester.

  1. "Sigurd: Er? You know who I am?
    Deirdre: Yes, I met a woman here in the castle a little while ago named Adean.
    Sigurd: Adean said something about me?
    Deirdre: She did. You're just how I imagined you to be.
    " - Sigurd and Deirdre, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  2. "Jamke: Adean, grab the kid and get out of here! Gandolf is going to find you guys. Now move it!
    Adean: Prince Jamke, you're not joining us?
    Jamke: No. I can't go against my father... even with all the mayhem my brothers are causing. I'm going to Verdane to see my father. I have to get him to see the wrong in all this.
    " - Jamke and Adean, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  3. "Adean: Hey, you're... Yes, I knew it! Briggid! I'm your sister, Adean! Please, try to remember!
    Briggid: How come you know my name? ...Wow, you look just like me. ...Adean, you say? Actually does sound kinda familiar...
    Adean: Yes! I'm your twin sister! You were taken by pirates when you were just 5 years old! I've been looking for you for such a long time.
    Briggid: I don't know. You're going to have to prove this to me somehow.
    Adean: Okay. Take this bow. Then draw.
    Briggid: Hm? Wow! Now that's a nice bow! Just draw it, right? Whoa! W, what is going on! Some strange power is bubbling up inside me. I... I have some recollection... Ah... my heart is burning... Adean. Your are my sister, Adean!
    Adean: Wonderful! You remember! That bow is the holy Yewfelle... It's been handed down through our family for generations. It is said that only one direct descendant of a crusader is able to handle their divine weapon. And in our family, that appears to be you! Now is that enough proof for you?
    " - Adean and Briggid, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
