— Limstella to Nergal

Limstella (Japanese: リムステラ Limstella) was a powerful morph and sage appearing in Fire Emblem, she was created by Nergal. Nergal claimed that she was his masterpiece, and his most powerful morph.

Fire Emblem

Role

Limstella is a major antagonist appearing sparingly throughout Fire Emblem's entirety. Serving under Nergal, she collects the quintessence of various Black Fang leaders killed by Eliwood's party.

She also kills Lloyd or Linus, due to them catching on to Nergal's and Sonia's treachery within the Black Fang's leadership.

Her final appearance is in Chapter 30E/32H: Victory or Death, where she is killed, despite being granted with immense power by Nergal shortly beforehand,[1] by Eliwood's, Hector's, and Lyn's combined forces.

Limstella is erroneously assigned the normal Sage class, instead of the morph variant, in Eliwood and Hector hard modes, this is why her defensive stats are lower in those modes, as they are hitting the class' defensive stat caps.

Personality and character

Limstella, like most other known morphs, is cold, calculating, and eternally loyal to master and creator Nergal. She does not outwardly express any emotions, and follows Nergal's every command.

However, as speculated by Canas and Renault,[2] as well as her dying words,[3] she seems to have some emotional capability. In particular, she expresses sorrow during her death. While it is technically ambiguous as to what she is sorrowful about, one assumption could be is that she wishes she could have served Nergal longer. Otherwise, Sonia seems to have been the only person to come anywhere close to provoking a reaction from Limstella. As Sonia lay dying, Limstella makes a comment that "Puppets have no essence to harvest.", "puppet" is a rather informal word for Limstella to use, though it is a word Sonia herself would use often when berating Limsetlla.[4]

Trivia

  • Limstella is one of only two bosses in Fire Emblem whose stats differ between the Normal and Hard difficulties in Eliwood's tale, the other being Fargus. In Limstella's case, this is presumably due to an internal oversight in assigning her class.
  • In the two leaked Fire Emblem prototypes, 0205 and 0219, Limstella has a Fortify staff in her inventory alongside her Bolting and Fimbulvetr tomes in her boss appearance.
  • Limstella is the first character in Fire Emblem Cipher to be genderless, owing to her nature as a morph.
