Appearance(s)

Eirika (pronounced /ˈɛəɹɪkə/?[1]; Japanese: エイリーク Eirik) is the princess of Renais, daughter of King Fado and twin sister of Crown Prince Ephraim. Exiled from her kingdom during Grado's initial onslaught of Renais, she was a leader of the effort to defeat Grado and protect the Sacred Stones it sought to destroy.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Role

Eirika is one of the two main characters of the game. In the beginning of the game, she escapes Renais as it is invaded by Grado, accompanied by Seth. At the time, her twin brother Ephraim has been fighting in Grado and is missing. She gathers many companions on her journey, and after arriving at Frelia and meeting her friend Tana, she decides to travel to Grado and find her brother.

After a reunion, the two return to Frelia to plan for their next course of action. At this point, the player can choose either Eirika's route or Ephraim's route, two different possible ways that the story can go. Either way, Eirika goes to Jehanna with Innes with the purpose of warning Jehanna of the war. The two soon reunite, and go to Renais to receive the two sacred weapons. Eirika receives the sacred sword Sieglinde. Together, the twins manage to defeat the Demon King, Fomortiis.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

Eirika makes several appearances in the downloadable content of Fire Emblem Awakening. In Champions of Yore 1 and 3, she is an enemy, while in the second chapter, she appears as an allied NPC unit with Lyn and Celica. She returns as an enemy in Smash Brethren 2, where, after completing the chapter, she introduces the player to the Bride class, and rewards them with the Wedding Bouquet. She reverts to her SpotPass appearance as an enemy in Smash Brethren 3, Rogues & Redeemers 2, and Rogues & Redeemers 3.

As with several other legacy characters in Awakening, there is a unique weapon named for Eirika available through the Barracks or event tiles: Eirika's Blade.

Personality and character

Throughout the game, Eirika is shown to care for others, especially the ones precious to her. She dislikes fighting, but accepts that in the times of the game it is a necessity for stopping war and bringing peace. Her brother Ephraim is very important to her, and the two share a very close bond as twins. Lyon, her childhood friend is also important to her, even after he becomes evil.

Endings

Eirika, Restoration Queen
Eirika returned to Renais and began the reconstruction effort with her brother, Ephraim. Seeing peace return to the lives of her people filled her with happiness. Her smile became a symbol of her people's joy.

Eirika and Ephraim
Busy days awaited Eirika and Ephraim as they struggled to rebuild Renais. Their work gave new hope to those ravaged by the war, and with Eirika's constant help, Ephraim grew to be a trusted and honorable king.

Eirika and Seth
Upon their return to Renais, Eirika and Seth were wed, with the blessings of Ephraim and all of the Knights of Renais. The tale of the love that grew between a princess and her loyal knight became a beloved romance in Renais.

Eirika and Saleh
After the war, Eirika and Saleh returned to their respective homes. Eirika visited Caer Pelyn when she could. Eventually, she left Renais in the care of her brother and wed Saleh. Their daughter resembles the legendary Nada Kuya.

Eirika and Tana
Following the war, Tana and Eirika remained the best of friends. They visited one another when time permitted, and as they grew older, their children shared a bond of friendship as close as Eirika and Tana themselves did.

Innes and Eirika
After the reconstruction of Renais, Innes challenged Ephraim to a duel. The match ended in a tie. After the fight, Eirika acknowledged her love for Innes, and the two were wed with Ephraim's blessings.

Eirika and Forde
After the war, Eirika and Forde returned to Renais. Eirika spent her days toiling in the reconstruction of Renais, and he was her faithful supporter. His portrait of Eirika captured the smile he had thought lost forever.

Etymology

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Eirika Derived from "Erika" or "Erica", feminine versions of "Eric" or "Erik", Scandinavian for "honorable ruler" or "eternal ruler". Erica is also the genus of the flower known commonly as heather.
Japanese エイリーク Officially romanized as Eirik. Variation on "Eric" or "Erik", as aforementioned, from the Old Norse Eiríkr.
Spanish Eirika
French Eirika
German Eirika
Italian Erika A significantly more common spelling, as aforementioned

Trivia

  • The spelling "Eirika" is very rare outside of Fire Emblem.
  • Eirika is the third of few female main characters of the series, after Celica of Fire Emblem Gaiden and Lyn of Fire Emblem.
  • When promoted as a Great Lord, Erika's critical hit animation loses the usual red flash every other unit has (besides magic units)
