Quotes

Death quote

In-battle conversation

Too inexperienced... I'll never reach my brother now...
— Karla

Post-battle conversation

Hector: Oswin! What happened to that female swordfighter? Karla, wasn't it?
Oswin: It seems she was hurt in that last skirmish. She left without telling a soul.
Hector: Is that so? Well, that’s that then.

Final Chapter: Light quote

I’ve lived long enough. I’ve no regrets…
— Karla

Battle History quotes

...Admirable. So, you do have some worth.
— Karla, with S or A rank
Hm. You've improved, haven't you?
— Karla, with B or C rank
...You're not ready.
— Karla, with D or E rank

Tactician quotes

You are Mark... This army's general, right? What? A tactician? Well, either way. Don't be shy, if you need work done, use me. I do not enjoy battle... but I have my skills.
— Karla in Hector's tale, Chapter 32: Victory or Death

Other appearances

Trivia

  • Karla is arguably the most difficult character to recruit in the entire game. Despite this, she is widely considered to be inferior to her brother Karel, and isn't a particularly impressive unit in general.
  • Karla's dark affinity is tied with the light affinity for being the rarest affinity in Fire Emblem, both having four carriers. The other three carriers of the dark affinity are Rath, Merlinus, and Isadora.
  • Karla's paired ending with Bartre can be read to imply that Bartre committed suicide after Karla's death. This does not make sense, as Bartre appears alive and well in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade after her death. Bartre "joining" Karla is not said or implied in the Japanese version and is a translation error.[1]

Etymology and other languages

That [camaraderie] naturally turned into deep love, and the two were wed. Afterward, it is said that wife Karla, who was struck down by illness, clutched husband Bartre’s hand, entrusted the daughter she left behind to her estranged [older] brother, and quietly breathed her last." — Amielleon, Fire Emblem (according to Japan), fe-according-to-japan.tumblr.com, Published: August 19th, 2014, Retrieved: February 9th, 2017
