— Celica

Celica (pronounced /ˈsɛlɪkə/?[1]; Japanese: セリカ Cellica) is a priestess to the goddess Mila, serving at the Novis Monastery under Bishop Nomah. Her true identity is Anteze (Japanese: アンテーサ), the errant princess of Zofia and sole survivor of its royal family.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Celica is one of the protagonists of Gaiden, along side Alm. She is a Priest, a class capable of using swords and both black magic and white magic. She and her recruited units are available for Chapter 2: Celica's Leave, Chapter 3: Liberty War, Chapter 4: Dismal Nation, and a partial portion of Chapter 5: Reunion, Yet.... She is not available in Chapter 1: To Zofia! as that chapter focuses exclusively on Alm's exploits, similarly to how Chapter 2 focuses exclusively on Celica.

Before the events of Gaiden Celica was spirited away by the Zofian knight Mycen to protect her from General Dozer, and so spent her early years living in the village of Ram with Alm, the other child under Mycen's care. When this proved too dangerous,[2] she was sent to the Novis Monastery, where she remained for an undisclosed number of years. Celica is aware of her status as the princess of Zofia and stays at the monastery willingly.

Eventually the Valentian liberation wars break out and a liberation army forms to stand against Dozer. At this time, Celica departs the monastery with a small retinue of fellow mages to finally investigate the crop failures occurring the consecutive three years prior.[3]

The first challenge Celica must overcome on her way north are numerous pirate ships, which attack Celica relentlessly. Celica eventually makes her way through the sea and to the Valentian mainland, also having gained some new allies. Celica meets a pair of pegasus knights at the port, who are looking for their abducted sister, though Celica does not help them as of yet.

Celica detours to Zofia castle and encounters Mycen and the residents of the castle, who are still celebrating that Dozer is gone. She is surprised to see Mycen there, and greets him. Celica clarifies that her goal is to go to the Temple of Mila to ask Mila why crops have failed for the past three years. Mycen is not surprised at this, and tells her that someone she may be interested in seeing is upstairs. Celica realizes that the leader of the Liberation army is Alm, and upstairs Celica and Alm reunite. They are happy to see each other after their years apart.

However, their reminiscing is cut short when Celica asks Alm to consider a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Alm says there is none; Rigel has already begun an invasion and there is no way that Emperor Rudlf would hear any negotiations. Celica disagrees, and says that perhaps Rudlf is not the evil man he is made out to be. She asks if Alm is interested in becoming King of Zofia. Alm is insulted by this, and says he only wishes to restore the Zofian throne to the missing Zofian princess, so he can return to Ram. Celica, who is aware that she is indeed the princess of Zofia, is frustrated that Alm does not wish to negotiate, and states she is leaving for the Temple of Mila.

Upon departing Zofia castle Celica is cut off from western Zofia by a landslide. Celica begins her journey north again, and encounters Palla and Catria embroiled in battle with pirates. Celica combines forces with the pegasus knights and continues her journey. Celica also meets Atlas and rescues Jesey, two locals that have had relatives kidnapped by the pirate overlord Geyse, who join her. Eventually, Celica reaches Geyse's headquarters, and rescues Est as well as a Mila priestess that had been kidnapped. The Mila priestess, recognizing Celica due to her close resemblance to her mother gives Celica her mother's royal circlet.

Celica eventually arrives at the Temple of Mila, which she finds under the control of a priest of Duma, Michael. After the defeat of Michael, Celica enters the Temple of Mila and finds Mila absent. The temple priestesses tell Celica that Rigel attacked the temple and Emperor Rudlf sealed Mila away. Exploring the temple, Celica finds Nomah, who had managed to fall down deeper in the temple. Nomah was worried about Celica, and had tried to follow her. Celica lowers the eastern floodgate, having the authority and recognition to do so granted by her circlet, and continues north into Rigel to press her investigations.

Shortly into Rigel Celica runs into countless monsters and Duma's priests. Celica also encounters Hark the former high priest of Duma, now cast-out by Juda. Hark tells Celica that Mila is sealed in a sword under the Tower of Duma, and that Juda, the current high priest of Duma, will not allow her to draw near. Hark apologizes, and asks her if there is anything he can do. Celica only wonders if there is anything she can to to help Alm, to which Hark responds by blessing Alm with new power.

Celica continues north, and encounters Juda, as well as a mogall, in person for the first time. After Celica's group kills his mogalls Juda is somewhat disappointed his monsters did not fare well, and warps away. Celica, not far from the tower of Duma, enters it, and after several skirmishes, encounters Juda at its peak. Celica requests Juda release Mila. Juda does not particularly care about her request and instead directs Celica's attention to Alm. Through a scrying crystal, Celica sees Alm trapped and under seige by numerous Dracozombies at Dragon Mountain in Rigel. Juda is amused by Celica's panic, and offers her a deal: offer herself to Duma as a sacrifice, and Alm will be able to escape Dragon mountain. Celica agrees to these conditions and enters into the deeper reaches of the tower.

Celica and her party are trapped in Duma's Altar for some time as Alm continues his conquest of Rigel, though, eventually, Alm descends into the depths of Rigel Castle. In the treasury, Alm finds the sword responsible for sealing Mila, Falchion, and takes it. He encounters many of Juda's forces and finally makes his way to Duma's Altar. Celica apologizes to Alm for leaving him at Zofia castle, Alm accepts her apology and their combined forces overwhelm Juda and Alm finishes Duma with Falchion, ending the war once and for all.

Afterwards, Alm and Celica become the rulers of the united nation of Valentia as husband and wife.

Fire Emblem Awakening


In the Outrealms, Celica is one of the Einherjar belonging to Old Hubba. In the Champions of Yore series, her card, and those of other legendary women from throughout the series, was stolen by Aversa and summoned to attack Chrom and Prince Marth's combined forces. After her card was reclaimed by Old Hubba, he summoned her to assist Chrom in defeating an army of male heroes led by another form of Marth. Unfortunately, Aversa conned Old Hubba into giving her the Einherjar again, forcing Chrom and the Shepherds to face off against Celica and the other legendary heroes once again. Celica reappears in Lost Bloodlines 2, assisting Alm on the enemy side. She again features as an enemy in Rogues & Redeemers 2 and 3, and upon completion of Rogues & Redeemers 2, she will join the player's army as a playable unit.

Another version of Celica is playable as a bonus SpotPass character, as part of the Gaiden character set.

Celica also has a magic tome named for her: Celica's Gale. This tome, which acts as a brave weapon, is purchased using Renown points.

Personality and character

This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

Though fully aware of her status as the Zofian princess, Celica generally refused to acknowledge this fact outside of the Novis Monastery, sharply rebuking Alm for suggesting that a Zofian princess even still lives.[4]


Afterwards, she and Alm joined together to become the founding king and queen of Valentia.
Her kindness and wisdom helped the young king establish the foundations of the Kingdom of Valentia.
The people believed that she was the reincarnation of Mila. It is said that they never ceased to love her from the very depths of their hearts.
