Your Majesty, I don’t know what’s happened. All I know is that my friends are hurting each other. If that means I have to stop you to save them, then I’m going to try.
— Ilyana, to Pelleas

Ilyana (Japanese: イレース Elaice) is a traveling mage from Tellius. She travels the world with Muston's merchant caravan, and through her journeys, she met both Ike and Micaiah and aided them in the fights for the liberation of Crimea and Daein, respectively.

Biography

Early life

Ilyana was born and grew up in a town somewhere in Tellius, but around the year 641 (four years prior to the Mad King's War), she left home to travel. She quickly found that she had trouble surviving without the support of friends and family, and one day passed out on the side of a road, where she was found by Muston and the other merchants. She joined their caravan as a companion to their travels across Tellius. On several occasions she accompanied the merchants on sailing journeys on ships, where she would always get seasick.[3]

The Mad King's War

When the Mad King's War broke out in 645, Ilyana and the caravan were in Gallia, and during a rainstorm Ilyana was separated from the rest of the caravan. She tried to find shelter from the rain in a fort where, unknown to her, Ike and the Greil Mercenaries were taking shelter, but she was caught by Daein soldiers who were preparing to raid the fort and was forced into their service with the threat of execution.[4] In the middle of the attack on the fort, she was stopped by Ike after he noticed how ill she looked, and she joined forces with him when he realized that he was protecting the same merchants from whom Ilyana had been separated.

After the battle, Ike and Soren hired the merchant caravan to join them on their mission to protect Elincia, and Ilyana accompanied them and became a fighter in Ike's service. She continued to fight with the Greil Mercenaries, and later the Crimean army, for the year through the rest of the war, and after it ended she left to continue traveling with the merchant caravan.

Daein and the Laguz Alliance

In the summer of 648, two years after Ashnard's defeat, Ilyana and the caravan were passing through Daein again when she and Aimee were separated from the rest of the caravan and arrested by Begnion soldiers.[5] They were taken to Glaive Prison, where they met Micaiah, Laura, and "Kurth". The five were soon released from prison by Sothe and Ilyana assisted Micaiah in fighting their way out through the soldiers, with Ilyana desiring "vengeance" for the poor quality of the prison food. After escaping and reuniting with Muston and the others, the caravan chose to accompany Micaiah and the Dawn Brigade on their mission to oppose the Begnion occupation, and so Ilyana fought as one of the Dawn Brigade and, later, the Daein Liberation Army.

After the last victory at Nevassa, Ilyana left Daein with the rest of the caravan. She and the caravan were hired again by Ike in the laguz-Begnion war, after he was hired by Ranulf, and she fought with his army again. As the war continued, she joined the Apostle's Army under Ike, along with the rest of the Greil Mercenaries, and when Daein's army relentlessly tried to stop them, Ilyana was forced to confront her old friends from Daein on the battlefield. She later participated in the battles against the Disciples of Order. After Ashera's defeat, she continued to travel with the merchants.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Ilyana is a mage specializing with thunder tomes that joins in Chapter 8 as a passive enemy unit, and can be recruited by Ike. Upon joining, she can deal reasonable damage with her thunder tomes but has low base speed for her join time. Her physical durability is very bad (slightly alleviated by Shade). She is the only unpromoted player mage that starts with a higher thunder rank than E rank, which is the best magic type in the game, so she can access higher-level thunder tomes more quickly than her peers, Soren and Tormod.

Her good magic, skill, and luck growths ensure she can do good accurate magic damage through most of the game, but her speed growth is very low, so she will likely have doubling issues for much of the game unless she is given some speedwings or rigged levels. Compared to Soren, who has better magic, skill, and speed growths and earlier availability and Adept, Ilyana has a higher strength and luck growth; so typcally, Soren will be a more powerful and useful long-term mage than Ilyana. However, she can still be useful as another mage, especially after promotion as she can use staves.

Ilyana starts with the Shade skill which is recommended to keep on her due to her terrible durability; note that it is not a very reliable skill and should not be counted on. Adept will help alleviate her doubling issues, and she has respectable skill to take advantage of it, though there are better recipients for it.

Ilyana has a light affinity, which gives defense and accuracy. The extra defense boost rarely helps her, as she often gets 2HKO'd anyways. Mordecai is a good partner with a water affinity; at max support, both units will gain +3 defense and a slight attack and accuracy boost. Zihark is another good partner with similar mobility that gives purely avoid, and benefits slightly from Ilyana's support bonus. Lucia also has an earth affinity and is the same class as Zihark, though she joins extremely late so it is hard to take advantage of supporting her with Ilyana.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Role

Ilyana is a playable unit. She first becomes available in Part 1 as part of Micaiah's party, and returns in early Part 3 to join Ike's party. She can be freely allocated to any of the three armies in Part 4.

If a Radiant Dawn game was started via a data transfer from Path of Radiance, any stat Ilyana maximized in Path of Radiance will result in a boost to her base in the stat in question in Radiant Dawn; her HP receives a +5 bonus under these conditions, while all other stats receive a +2 bonus. The below stats are Ilyana's default stats if no transfer is made or if she capped no stats in Path of Radiance.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Ilyana is the only thunder mage in the game and the first mage to join the dawn brigade, after Micaiah. She has decent offensive bases (especially with Path of Radiance transfers), letting her do significant magic damage from the backline. Her offense can be unreliable, however, since she primarily uses thunder tomes, which is very inaccurate without forges. She has terrible physical durability, so she is limited to player phase offense. Her magic, skill, and resistance growths are good, which helps compensate for thunder accuracy issues. Her speed growth is bad, so she will frequently have doubling issues through most of the game. This is mitigated by a strangely good 45% strength growth, meaning she will have less trouble lifting heavier and stronger tomes.

Ilyana is a unique character in that she's the only Dawn Brigade unit that joins Ike's party in part 3, and has the best availability in the entire game. If the player wants to transfer anything from part 1 to Ike's group (skills like Celerity and Savior, items like the Brave Sword or other expensive weapons, etc), giving them to Ilyana is the only way to do so. Ilyana also can have much more experience and combat through part 3 with Ike's group than Micaiah's group. However, if the player invested significant part 1 resources into Ilyana, other Dawn Brigade characters will likely struggle more through part 3 due to being more underleveled than without a trained Ilyana. Ilyana will also often perform worse than her peers, especially when compared to Rhys and Soren, other fragile magic-users who have healing or better offensive growths respectively.

If Ilyana is trained for part 4, she works best on Micaiah's team. The desert route chapter benefits Ilyana due to good mobility; as she is a thunder mage, she can also kill the various dragonknights on that chapter (though Sanaki is forced and can do the same). At endgame, Ilyana has the novelty of being the only user of the Rexbolt in the game, giving her a unique niche for Chapter 4-E-3 which is filled with dragon laguz. Keep in mind, her class caps limit her endgame potential significantly despite thisniche.

Ilyana starts with the Shade skill, which helps account for player mistakes with exposing her (albeit unreliable). As the only unit in the game available through both Micaiah's and Ike's parties, she has access to many, many skills. Resolve and Wrath amplify her offense significantly, which can be easy to set up due to having enough physical durability to take one but bad enough to have low enough health after one hit. Otherwise, it is hard to recommend specific skills for her such as Adept, due to her bad long-term speed.

As the only unit available in both Micaiah's and Ike's parties, Ilyana has many options for supports. Whoever Ilyana supports in part 1, she will often not benefit from that unit's availability until part 4, so it is best to consider supporting her with someone in part 1 then deleting it and re-supporting her with someone in part 3. She has a light affinity which gives defense and accuracy, the latter which she strongly appreciates. Leonardo is a backline offensive unit whose water affinity gives attack and defense, which Ilyana benefits from. Laura has a wind affinity which boosts Ilyana's avoid and accuracy too. In part 3, Ilyana benefits the most from a fire affinity unit with similar movement as her, including Boyd, Mia, and Rhys.

Personality and character

Ilyana is a ravenous eater, horrifying even Nailah.

Ilyana is shy and meek, mostly keeping to herself and not going out of her way to introduce herself to others,[6] and she takes a while to realize when people are trying to get her attention, unless food is involved.[7] Even so, she greatly values the friends she does make, and was gravely upset when the war between the laguz and Begnion meant that her friends had to fight each other. She is fairly straightforward to the point of naivety, believing that the fights between her friends in both the Laguz Alliance and Daein were completely pointless and were hurting everone involved for no reason at all,[8] and particularly lamented how the war forced the likes of Zihark to neglect the principles which she once admired in them.[9]

Most of Ilyana's life revolves around food, as she is always hungry to the point of illness. She has a voracious appetite which needs to be constantly fed, or she will be overcome with dizziness and, in cases of extreme hunger, will faint. To get through this she eats much more food than her frail stature would suggest, normally enough to feed five people.[10] Part of her problem is that she rarely has enough gold to afford all the food she needs, forcing her to starve and faint instead.[11] Her need for food drives her to the point of desperate behavior described by Zihark as "feral", often stealing food from others and (possibly inadvertently) tricking her comrades into buying her dinner.[12] In cases of extreme hunger, she will even resort to blearily trying to eat things which are not food.[13] She makes a point of remembering people who she knows can provide good food for her.[14] As far as Ilyana knows, her constant hunger is not the result of an illness.[15] According to Lucia, the amount Ilyana eats is actually comparable to that of a laguz.[16]

Battle quotes

Whew... Made it. I wasn’t sure I would, but... I’m going on ahead.
— Ilyana's escape quote in Path of Radiance.
...I don’t know how... but we made it. Please allow me to go ahead.
— Ilyana's escape quote in Radiant Dawn.

Against Sothe in Part 3 Chapter 7

Ilyana: Hello, Sothe...
Sothe: If you’re here with the Greil Mercenaries, does that mean the caravan is with you, too?
Ilyana: Yes. Everyone is back together. Why don’t you join us? You should bring Micaiah, of course. Everyone is worried about you two...
Sothe: I’m sorry, I can’t...
Ilyana: I see... I’m sorry, Sothe.

Against Zihark in Part 3 Chapter 7

Ilyana: Hello, Sir Zihark.
Zihark: Ilyana... You’re on their side, too?
Ilyana: And you stand with the enemy...
Zihark: I don’t know why, but it feels like you’ve been in my life longer than the others. I couldn’t handle it if you got hurt. Ilyana, please pull back before something awful happens. I beg of you.
Ilyana: Oh, Zihark...

Against Jill in Part 3 Chapter 7

Jill: Ilyana? You’re with the Laguz Alliance? No, I mean the Greil Mercenaries?
Ilyana: Yes. Muston and the others are with me, too.
Jill: I see... We fought together in Ashnard’s War, and in the war to liberate Daein. We didn’t spend much time together, but you were a trustworthy comrade.
Ilyana: Thank you... I wonder why we’re here. Why is Daein attacking us?
Jill: I don’t know. The occupation soldiers left Daein. But Daein still cannot refuse a request from Begnion. Liberation was only a dream.
Ilyana: Yet you continue to stay with the Daein army? Why do you do that to yourself?
Jill: Because I can’t abandon my comrades.

Against Sothe in the Part 3 Endgame

Ilyana: Hello, Sothe. Shall we get started?
Sothe: Uh, I thought you’d hesitate to fight me. I’m... a little surprised.
Ilyana: You’ve made your choice, Sothe, and I’ve made mine. It’s really that simple, isn’t it? Anyway, I’m starving. If I don’t eat something soon, I think I’ll pass out...
Sothe: Well, we can’t have that. Ready when you are, Ilyana.

Against Tauroneo in the Part 3 Endgame

Ilyana: ...Sigh.
Tauroneo: Taking a break on the battlefield? Things don’t seem to rattle you, Ilyana.
Ilyana: I’m not taking a break. I’m just sad I have to fight against you, General. Well, that, and I’m really, really hungry right now...
Tauroneo: I should’ve known. Let’s get this over with so you can get back and have something to eat.
Ilyana: ...General Tauroneo, I hope we can meet again under different circumstances.
Tauroneo: I hope so as well, Ilyana. We’ll have to see what happens.

Against Nailah in the Part 3 Endgame

Ilyana: Wolf Queen...
Nailah: Ilyana. I am not familiar with beorc magic. You might actually stand a chance, if you strike quickly.
Ilyana: Um, OK... But... Queen Nailah? Would you promise me something? If we both live through this, will you take me for some good Hatari cooking?

Against Pelleas in the Part 3 Endgame

Pelleas: Ilyana... I’m sorry. If I were a better king, this wouldn’t have happened. I’m sorry...
Ilyana: Your Majesty, I don’t know what’s happened. All I know is that my friends are hurting each other. If that means I have to stop you to save them, then I’m going to try. I’m sorry...

Against Zihark in the Part 3 Endgame

Zihark: Ilyana, we’ve no time for doubts now. This mess has to finish its course. Let’s get this over with.
Ilyana: Sir Zihark... I wish it didn’t have to be this way...

Against Jill in the Part 3 Endgame

Ilyana: War is always sad. It never changes. It is always cruel. Can’t we just pretend that it’s all over?
Jill: I know. No matter how many times you experience it, you can never get used to it. But no, Ilyana, we can’t. I’m sorry.

Trivia

Ss tmsfe ilyana waitress look alike.png
  • Ilyana is one of only two playable units who start both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn in a completely unpromoted base class, the other being Jill. All other returning characters in Radiant Dawn are in advanced classes (including Mist because, although she is still a Cleric, that class is an advanced class in Radiant Dawn).
  • Ilyana has the highest availability of any unit in Radiant Dawn, being available for 23 chapters in the game; two more than the main character, Micaiah.
  • In Radiant Dawn, Ilyana is the only unit capable of wielding Rexbolt. This makes her the only unit in the entire game who effectively has a non-personal SS-rank weapon entirely exclusive to them, since all other SS-rank weapons have at least two potential playable users.
    • Relatedly, Ilyana is the only playable character in the series capable of reaching SS-rank with thunder magic.
  • In Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, there is a waitress who looks somewhat like Ilyana.

    Ilyana: To be honest, I don’t know why I’m so hungry. I’m never full. I always get hungry as soon as I eat. Normally, I eat about as much food as five people. Today was tough because I only got enough food for three.

  11. "I would love to eat big meals... But I can’t. Because... well... I have no money... That’s why I faint all the time." — Ilyana, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  12. "Zihark: You’re hungry, though. I can tell from the feral look in your eyes.
    Ilyana: Feral?! Excuse me?
    Zihark: You’re a bit of a celebrity among the men in the unit. They say you lure them in with your cute face and then run off with their snacks.
    Ilyana: They do?
    Zihark: Oh, yes they do! You’re a beef jerky thief, aren’t you? I know about the apple pie incident, too. Yeah... I know your tricks. Is it true that you don’t remember their names, even after they buy you an expensive meal? That’s just terrible.
    Ilyana: No! It’s just that... I collapse into a coma when I get too hungry! That’s why I’ve got to accept everyone’s generous food offers.
    Zihark: Then at least remember their names! Even if you had ulterior motives, everyone likes... Er... Is kind to you.
    " — Zihark and Ilyana, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  13. "Ilyana: So...hungry. Please...if you have anything...
    Mia: Hold on a minute! Don’t tell me you’re always staggering around and fainting because you need a snack!
    Ilyana: Yes... As soon as I finish eating, I get hungry again. That’s why I faint.
    Mia: Well, I don’t have any food on me right now. I’ll go get you something right away, though. We can’t have you passed out on the ground like this!
    Ilyana: Please...don’t leave...
    Mia: Whoa there! Let go! Hey! Stop trying to eat my foot!
    Ilyana: Mmmm...so...tasty...
    Mia: No, no, no! I can’t have you feasting on my limbs! Somebody bring this girl some food! Anything, people! Old leather shoes, fruitcake...anything!
    " — Ilyana and Mia, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  14. "Ilyana: How interesting... Heather... Her name is Heather. I’ll have to remember her name. She likes to feed me.
    Ike: You still eating everything in sight?
    Ilyana: Ah... Hello, Ike. I haven’t seen you in a long time.
    Ike: Glad to see you remember me.
    Ilyana: Of course. I remember all of the mercenaries. Well, most of you, anyway. Oscar prepares such delicious meals. I remember that well enough. Oh, I can’t wait to eat his food again.
    Ike: Well, I can see you haven’t changed a bit.
    " — Ilyana and Ike, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  15. "Mia: But you look sickly and ill. Why don’t you go and see a priest?
    Ilyana: I’m quite all right. The last time I saw a priest, he said I wasn’t sick.
    Mia: Hmm... Are you sure you weren’t being bilked? Was he a real priest? You look like you’re about to keel over.
    " — Mia and Ilyana, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  16. "Lucia: How much do you usually eat?
    Ilyana: When I cook, I usually make... six or seven helpings...
    Lucia: Er... You’re not a laguz, are you?
    Ilyana: No...
