Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Role

Elen and the princess Guinivere are on their way to Lycia to meet with the heads of the league and find a peaceful way to resolve the invasions. When they arrive at the border of Bern and Lycia, they are taken hostage by the leader of the fort, Ruud, who plans to sell Guinivere to Bern's enemies. Elen manages to escape from the fort, but she is attacked. At this time, Roy and his small group had arranged to meet a group of mercenaries at this location, and Elen happens to run into them before the castle guards catch up to her. She helps Roy defeat Ruud and free Guinivere. She then accompanies Roy throughout the rest of the story.

Once Bern is defeated and the war is over, she returned to her homeland to work on its restoration. Due to her hard work, she is given the title of "The Saint of Bern".

Personality and character

Elen is a very pious and good-willed lady. She is slightly shy, and is scared of men.[1] Still, she is very friendly, often trying to help others as well as she can, and concerned about the safety of both those in the army and non-fighters in need.[2] When talking to Lugh, she expresses her concern over seeing a child fighting in a war.[3] She truly believes in the good in people, seeing Saul not as a womanizer but as a priest trying to show the freedom of the Elimine Church.[4] As a priestess of Bern's Elimine Church, she is very religious and is eager to talk with Saul about the subject. Elen is also a skilled healer, even having knowledge with medicinal herbs.[5]

Elen comes from Bern, having lived in the same hometown as Zeiss,[6] and is very loyal to her mistress Guinivere, the princess of Bern. She also seems to know Milady, as both are from Bern and serve under Princess Guinivere. She knows that Bern started the war and understands when Chad is angry at her for being from the country.[7]

  4. "Elen: Oh, yes. You appear to be an impious womanizer. Hardly someone I would call a priest.
    Saul: ......
    Elen: But I finally realized that there is a reason for that. It is a character act. It is to show that the St. Elimine Church accepts even the lowest of men.
    Saul: Ah... I, uh... Hmm. OK.
    Elen: Acting as you do ruins your reputation and image... Everyone thinks you're lazy and only interested in women...
