Shadow Dragon

What? Grr, enough of this! The League will be here soon. Take your positions! We’ll deal with them first and cut that giant down to size later.
— Larissa

Larissa (Japanese: ラリッサ Rarissa) is the leader of a band of remnant Grustian, and Dolhrian soldiers and the boss of chapter 20x of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon; he is a new addition to the plot of the War of Shadows that did not appear in Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light or its first remake, Book 1 of Mystery of the Emblem. Larissa and his band of soldiers, among the few survivors from the events that saw the Sable Order defeated, take a village hostage in an attempt to keep the Archanean League at bay, an attempt that would end in failure.
