— Limstella to Nergal

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

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade


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 and constitution are lower in those modes, as they are hitting the class' defensive stat caps.

Personality and character

Limstella, like most other known morphs, is distant, calculating, and eternally loyal to master and creator Nergal. She does not outwardly express any emotions, and follows Nergal's every command without question.

Limsella conducts interactions with subordinates in a formal and impersonal manner. She keeps her tone neutral and states things plainly even when informing others of their failures.[2][3] Sonia seems to have been the only person to come anywhere close to provoking a reaction from Limstella. If Limstella is present to witness Sonia's death in the conclusion of Night of Farewells, 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 morphs.[4]

Limstella may possess some unintended emotional capacity, which can be gleaned from speculation stated by Canas and Renault,[5] as well as her dying words.[6] In particular, she expresses sorrow during her death. While it is technically ambiguous as to what she is sorrowful about, it is likely to be die to her time in service to Nergal has ended.

    Canas: ...... Before... I would have said that I do not know... But now, perhaps I do... Morphs... do have souls... That is what I believe...
    Renault: ...That is not a bad answer.
