|“||Why... Why did you lie to me, Father? I've had to endure so much pain... I wish I'd known the truth from the start. My father lied to me, Mist. He lied to build me into a heartless warrior, a soldier worthy of Daein.||”|
— Jill to Mist in their A support
Jill Fizzart (Japanese: ジル Jill) is a wyvern rider from Talrega, the daughter of Daein general Shiharam. She joins the army during the Mad King's War, but ends up fighting for the other side. In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, she returns to Daein to help rebuild her struggling country. She joins the Greil Mercenaries whilst they are aboard Nasir's ship and fighting the raven laguz as she had followed the troop from land. She originally joined them to help destroy the "sub-humans", but ended up staying with them throughout the war.

Starting stats and growth rates
Promotion stat gains
Jill is the first wyvern knight and second flier to join the party. She has decent base strength, skill, and defense, and mediocre base speed. In her join chapter, she is doubled by the raven laguz but she also has a laguzguard equipped so she is bulky enough to contribute immediately. As a wyvern knight, she has high movement, can fly, and has canto, which are all immensely useful immediately and through the entire game, especially over the next few chapters which have water and desert. She uses lances, giving her 1-2 range combat, and can immediately use steel lances. It is recommended to give Jill some levels of BEXP immediately, since she has excellent long-term payoff thanks to her class and growths.
Jill has decent growths across strength, skill, and speed, so she will quickly grow into a strong offensive unit. This is complemented by her promotion, which lets her use axes; while she starts with E rank axes, she can still use hand and steel axes immediately. It is recommended to prioritize using axes, though lances are still useful because she'll have a higher lance rank and are better against sword-users. Her defense and resistance growths are about average; since she has a decent defense base and bad resistance base, she will continue to be physically bulky enough but weak to magic.
Jill has no base skills, but as a flier, she is flexible to work with most skills. Adept and Guard have decent activation rates thanks to her good skill. Savior is an invaluable skill on her if she is to regularly face combat while ferrying units like Ike. It is not recommended to teach her Stun with an Occult as stunning enemy units is rarely useful.
Jill has a thunder affinity which gives a defense and avoid boost, both useful for her survival. Mist has a water affinity which gives Jill +3 defense at A support, which is extremely useful for Jill but not as useful for Mist since she is a healer. They will have similar mobility when Mist promotes, though Mist does not fly. Lethe has a heaven affinity which gives only accuracy, which Jill appreciates when using axes, but her skill and forges often make it unnecessary. Haar has a wind affinity which gives light accuracy and avoid, complementing Jill's thunder affinity; furthermore, he is the same class as her, but he joins extremely late in the game.

Starting stats and growth rates
- Note: The above stats are Jill's default stats. If a Radiant Dawn game was started via a data transfer from Path of Radiance, any stat Jill capped in Path of Radiance will result in a boost to her base in the stat in question in Radiant Dawn.
Promotion stat gains
Jill is a dracoknight and the first and only permanent flier of Micaiah's team. As the only unit on the team with canto, high movement, and flight, she has the most important niche and role on the team despite being tier 1. Unlike pegasus knights, she is not weak to bows nor wind magic, and only vulnerable to thunder magic which is very rare. She has average bases in strength and skill, and good bases in speed, luck, and defense. While she is usable for combat, she is weighed down by most axes. Her accuracy is low due to axes and average skill. She is not as durable as one would expect, due to her low health and resistance bases. She is a unit that immediately improves drastically with a few levels of bonus experience, statboosters (especially the energy drop and dracoshield), an early promotion, or Path of Radiance transfers, so some combination of these is highly recommended immediately because of her irreplaceable role in her team. Note that an average PoR Jill only caps skill, but is a few points away from capping strength, speed, and defense, so PoR Jill needs a bit of good luck or some bands to hit these caps. It is also recommended to give Jill forges, especially in 1-E to prepare for part 3.
Jill has excellent growths in speed and luck, and enough growths in strength, skill, and resistance. She will easily cap speed and luck in tier 2 and on, giving her plenty of opportunities to patch her weaker growths. After promotion, she will quickly become the most powerful and important unit on the team. She is the only unit who has full mobility over ledges and swamps, terrain present in almost every chapter of Micaiah's team. Jill is the best user of the 3-6 Brave Axe; the only other user is Nolan who has the Tarvos. She is the best recipient of the 3-12 boots due to her class. As she is so important for Micaiah's team, it is not recommended to recruit her to Ike's team in part 3; to note, there is no loss in recruiting Jill in 3-E since she can contribute to Ike's team and is no longer committed to Micaiah's team in part 4. When promoted to tier 2, she can use lances, which can be nice for sword-users but are generally not necessary outside of the occasional Horseslayer use in part 4.
Jill works on any team in part 4 thanks to her amazing class, though she may be underlevelled and wants some BEXP or Paragon. As most units do not perform well on the desert, Jill works best on Micaiah's team, especially due to the abundance of crossbow users. However, she still performs extremely well on Ike's and Tibarn's team, so it is up to the player's discretion to decide if another dracoknight is needed on Micaiah's team or not. Jill is an excellent candidate for endgame thanks to hammer and urvan access, good speed cap, and flight and canto.
Jill has no skills upon joining, but as a flier, almost any skill benefits her significantly. She unfortunately does not have the capacity for any useful skills until she promotes to tier 2. She is the best user of Paragon, as she has the best long-term payoff out of Micaiah's entire team; keep in mind she is not available on chapter 1-8, so it is wise to assign Paragon to a different unit just for that chapter. Beastfoe is extremely helpful through part 3, though admittedly a bit overkill with a properly trained Jill. Jill can put Tauroneo's Resolve and Zihark's Adept to good use thanks to her excellent speed. She can put Fiona's Savior to good use too, though that skill is often better off passed to Ike's team due to lack of seize chapters for Micaiah's team after part 1. Tormod's Celerity is an excellent skill that amplifies her mobility even further, though it may be overkill since she can get the boots in part 3 anyways. Jill is such a pivotal versatile unit, that almost any other skill one can think of, she can use very well, so feel free to be creative!
Jill has a thunder affinity which boosts her defense and avoid. Earth affinity users like Nolan, Zihark, Volug, and Fiona all give more avoid, turning her into a better dodgetank, and also appreciate the light defense boost from her, though all of these earth affinity users benefit more from supporting each other than Jill. Micaiah herself gives Jill a small attack boost and more avoid, giving her +2 attack, +2 defense, and +15 avoid at A support. Unfortunately there are no other permanent fliers on Micaiah's team, so there is no unit that can fully keep up with her until part 4, where Jill has more options with good mounted fliers like Haar and Tanith.
Personality and character
Jill is first introduced as being highly prejudiced towards the Laguz race, as can be observed through her frequent articulation of the demeaning term "sub-human" when referring to members of the race. She reveals that she has been raised to believe that laguz are evil, where they are referred to as nothing more than "sub-humans" in the schools she once attended. Jill then expresses a desire to remain with the army for a longer period of time, all in order to gain a better understanding of the laguz.

- "Jill: Do you know the first thing we're taught in Daein schools? Sub-humans are evil. Sub-humans are the enemy. Sub-humans must be eradicated. The army stages periodic sub-human hunts. We'd find refugees from Begnion hiding in our mountains and forests...
Ike: You participated?
Jill: You don't get it! That's just how things are in Daein! No one taught me the word laguz! No one taught me that sub-humans could be...could be like this. No one cared." — Jill and Ike in a base conversation, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
