Have you heard, Horace? I am told the rebels just recaptured the palace. That accursed Archanean wench! To hell with Camus’s pleas. We should have put her to the sword with the rest of them...
— Dejanira

Dejanira (Japanese: デジャニラ Dejanira) is the leader of a Dolhrian faction attacking western Archanea, and the boss of chapter 12x of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon; he is a new addition to the plot of the War of Shadows that did not appear in Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light or its first remake, Book 1 of Mystery of the Emblem. Dejanira is the commander pulling the strings behind the so-called "traitor" Horace, threating many Archanean deaths should Horace not cooperate. Dejanira is eventually defeated by the Archanean League, after which Horace tells his surviving underlings to drop their arms.
