I don't want to sit idly by and wait for you to return from battle. I want to be a great knight, just like you.
— Gwendolyn to Bors.

Gwendolyn (Japanese: ウェンディ Wendy) is a playable character first appearing in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is a proud newly-knighted[1] knight of Ostia and the younger sister of Bors.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade


Gwendolyn, alongside Bath, is one of the first Knights recruited after Bors in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She appears in Ostia keep during Chapter 8: Reunion, with Ogier and Bath searching for their charge, Lilina. After her initial appearance Gwendolyn has no primary story role for the rest of The Binding Blade.

Only one variation of Gwendolyn is currently available in Heroes, based on her The Binding Blade incarnation.

Personality and character

Gwendolyn is resolute on her path as a knight of Ostia, even in the face of some resistance from her brother, Bors, who is concerned with her safety. While Gwendolyn is a full fledged knight, she still has some slight insecurity about her prowess, as she seeks advice from Bath, while Bath insists that as a full knight she should be able to self-critique effectively.[2] Gwendolyn's dedication to her knighthood has resulted in her having yet to seek out suitors, though she is not particularly concerned with such matters.[3]

Gwendolyn attends her task of protecting Lilina dutifully,[4] and is concerned when Lilina speaks to her on equal terms. She outright rejects Lilina's offer of friendship to preserve the vassal-liege hierarchy.[5]

  • "Gwendolyn" exceeds Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade's name space limits in several menus. This is only a problem for fan translations, as The Binding Blade was never localized, and Gwendolyn's first localized appearance is in Fire Emblem Heroes.
    • The way Gwendolyn's name exceeds space limits is due to its overall width, not number of characters; Priscilla from the game's prequel has the same number of characters (nine) as Gwendolyn, but her name is thinner overall due to a number of the letters in her name not occuping as much width as Gwendolyn's name would.
  • Gwendolyn placed 28th in the official Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade character poll on the official Japanese website.[6]

  1. "Bors: Wha...!? What...what's that you're wearing?! Did you join up with the Ostian knights?
    Gwendolyn: Ah... Actually, yes. I was knighted just yesterday.
    " — Gwendolyn to Bors in Chapter 8: Reunion, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  2. "Gwendolyn: I'm sure there is something I could improve in...
    Bath: No. You must critique yourself now.
    Gwendolyn: But...
    Bath: What's the matter? Why do you look so discouraged?
    " — Gwendolyn and Bath, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  3. "Gwendolyn: Yes, milady. I am a knight of Ostia and I serve--
    Lilina: No, I know that... I meant more interesting things. For example, are there any men you fancy?
    Lilina: That's right.
    Gwendolyn: I...don't really know.
    Lilina: What?
    Gwendolyn: I've always been focused on becoming strong like my brother, so... I've never really thought about things like that...
    Lilina: Really...? Let's talk about something else then.
    " — Lilina and Gwendolyn, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  4. "Gwendolyn: Lady Lilina... Please stay close to me. I shall protect you with my life." — Gwendolyn to Lilina, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  5. "Gwendolyn: F-friends? I don't think that would be appropriate, milady... You are my mistress!
    Lilina: That doesn't matter. You're the only girl around my age from Ostia. Let's not worry about positions like mistress or vassal...
    Gwendolyn: Lady Lilina! You carry Ostia's future on your shoulders. You are different from us. You do understand that, don't you?
    Lilina: ...So we can't be friends?
    Gwendolyn: I'm sorry, though I am very grateful for your consideration. Perhaps we cannot be friends, but I would enjoy chatting with you once in a while as before.
