Guess I'd rather write a story about an epic quest than be on one myself. Though I imagine being left out would feel even worse...
— Genny

Genny (Japanese: ジェニー Jenny) is a cleric and a follower of Mila appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden. She is a friend of Celica.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Genny is the first healing unit, a cleric, to join Celica's group.

Genny stayed at the Novis monastery with Celica and Nomah. She accompanies Celica on her journey to the Mila Temple in the north.

  • In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


Genny, like in Gaiden has lived in the priory for most of her life and is familiar with Celica. She was left at the priory some years ago by her mother. She is an optional recruit, and Celica can opt to not bring her along. Either way, her story role is minimal past her recruitment.

Personality and character

In the original Gaiden, Genny had little characterization. Having only two lines of dialogue, when recruited she states she is happy to travel with Celica and heal the group's injuries.

Her personality was expanded a fair bit in the remake. She is a soft spoken girl, and was initially quite frightened of traveling across Valentia with Celica.[1] Genny seems to have a fondness of men older than her, she states that this is due to a feeling of being taken care of that an older man gives her.[2]

Genny has a dislike of her mother for abandoning her at the priory, it is possible this abandonment is what has led to her desire to feel taken care of. She is uncomfortable and nervous around people that remind her of her mother.[3] She tries to not let this affect her friendships with women that look similar to her mother, though she has some difficulty with speaking around them.[4]

One of Genny's hobbies is writing stories.[5] In particular, she has plans to write a story about a princess who finds her father.[6]


Main article: Genny/Supports



Though no one could have possibly dreamed of it happening, it's said that she fell in love with one of her companions. Who in the world could that person be? Her only answer is a smile.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

After falling in a most unlikely love, Genny wed a man no one would ever expect. As for whom she married, exactly, no one can say—whenever her friends asked, she replied only with a smile and an enigmatic laugh.

  1. "Mae and Boey seem excited to have left the Priory to travel, but to be honest, I'm more than a little afraid. I've always been the type to stay home and read rather than go on adventures." — Genny to Celica, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  2. "He's around your age, isn't he? Mmm. That wouldn't work for me. I'd prefer to be with someone older. That way you feel like they're really taking care of you. Hee hee." — Genny to Celica, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  3. "I said what I did because... you remind me of my mother." — Genny to Sonya in a support conversation, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  4. "Genny: N-no! You didn't! It's just... I don't really handle people like you very well.
    Sonya: Well, that's certainly ominous. Care to expand a little?
    Genny: ......
    Sonya: All right, then! Sorry I said anything. I'll keep my distance from now on, okay?
    Genny: N-no, I...
    " — Genny and Sonya in a support conversation, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  5. "Guess I'd rather write a story about an epic quest than be on one myself." — Genny to Celica, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  6. "It's the story of a plucky princess who overcomes tremendous obstacles. A long-lost princess who is reunited with her long-lost father in the end. All her life, she's carried a pendant— a memento of her departed mother. But it turns out that pendant was a gift from the princess's father, the king! In the end, the king tracks the pendant down in order to find his lost child. ...What do you think? Isn't it great? I'm already brainstorming the sequel!" — Genny to Celica, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
