...Consider your trust reciprocated then. That's the way of the Isaachian warrior. For now I consecrate my sword to thee.
— Ayra, to Sigurd

Ayra (アイラ Ira) was a princess of Isaach, a descendant of the crusader Odo, the daughter of King Mananan and the younger half-sister of Crown Prince Mariccle. At the height of Isaach's war with Grannvale, Ayra was tasked by Mariccle to flee Isaach with his young son Shanan, to ensure his survival and the future of the Isaach royal family. Their travels eventually took them to Verdane, where Ayra was eventually left with no choice but to work as a mercenary for Prince Kinbois, who imprisoned Shanan as leverage to ensure Ayra's full cooperation. With the death of Kinbois and the rescue of Shanan by Sigurd's forces, Ayra allied with Sigurd - if with reservations given the war between their countries - and spent the next few years serving in his forces until the Battle of Belhalla, in which she disappeared.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


When Kinbois departed Castle Genoa to attempt to retake Castle Evans to the north, he placed Ayra in charge of Genoa's defence, with only a small defence force serving under her. Determined to ensure Shanan's safety from both Kinbois and the impending army led by Sigurd - her enemy, being of Grannvale - Ayra actively and relentlessly engaged Sigurd's forces in combat. Sigurd got around her and seized Genoa, then freed Shanan from his imprisonment and, with his freedom, convinced Ayra to stand down and ally with his army. Ayra agreed, for Shanan's benefit, but reminded Sigurd that her country was still at war with Grannvale, that as such he was still technically her enemy, and that should the need one day arise she would not hesitate to treat him as such.

During the war, if she married, Ayra gave birth to twin children: Larcei and Ulster. Following the defeat of Langobalt and Sigurd's capture of Castle Lubeck, the two were sent away along with the infant Seliph to the outskirts of Isaach, under the protection of Shanan and Oifey; though Sigurd wanted her to go with them, she stayed with his forces, telling him that she intends to finish the war and that Shanan can now look after himself.[1]

Ayra was present at the Battle of Belhalla, in which Sigurd's army was executed by the mages of Velthomer, but her ultimate fate in its aftermath - whereas other female members of Sigurd's army survived it, if temporarily - remains unknown, both in-universe and otherwise. Larcei, for her part, firmly believed that Ayra was still alive seventeen years later, and fiercely rebuked Ulster for suggesting otherwise.[2]

Fire Emblem Awakening

"I am Ayra. I'm a swordfighter from Isaach."

Ayra is playable as a SpotPass bonus character, released in the Genealogy of the Holy War first-generation character set. Along with Innes of The Sacred Stones and Clair of Gaiden, Ayra was one of the first three characters to be revealed to a "returning character" on March 14th, 2012, in a video released by Nintendo on the Wii's Nintendo Channel service which which they later also placed on the official Japanese website for Awakening. This video confirmed the game's use of SpotPass functionality to deliver bonus playable characters returning from earlier games in the Fire Emblem series.[3]

Ayra also appears as an enemy unit in two DLC episodes - Lost Bloodlines 1 and Lost Bloodlines 3 - and as a NPC in a further one episode, Lost Bloodlines 2.

  1. "Sigurd: Ayra!? I thought I told you to go back to Isaach with Shanan.
    Ayra: Thanks, but it wouldn't be right if I left now. I'm finishing this war with you.
    Sigurd: Huh? You were entrusted with Shanan's protection, but he's in Isaach and you're here!
    Ayra: Ah, you're talking about the promise to my late brother. My job is finished with Shanan. He's old enough to look after himself now.
    Sigurd: Yeah, but...
    Ayra: I will return to Isaach as soon as this war is finished. And when that day comes, Sir, you too will be able to return to your homeland.

  2. "Larcei: Ayra... Yeah, I have no memories of her whatsoever. How about you, Ulster?
    Ulster: Of course I don't remember anything! You forget we're twins or something? We weren't even two years old yet at the time. We fled to Isaac with Oifey. But she never showed up. Maybe she didn't survive the Battle of Belhalla after all...
    Larcei: Ulster! You promised you'd never say that! She is alive!! Don't you ever let me catch you saying that again!
