I don't remember much of my mother. But I do remember that she always seemed so sad...
— Linda

(Japanese: リンダ Linda) is a noblewoman of Grannvale's Friege family, and is the daughter of the late Lady Ethnia. Following her mother's demise, Linda reluctantly served her uncle Bloom as a warrior fighting on the behalf of the Grannvale Empire in the Manster District, but defected upon meeting her long-lost brother Amid and joined Seliph's liberation army.

Linda is Teeny's substitute character, filling her role in the story and gameplay if Tailtiu died or failed to be married in the course of the first generation.

Biography

Linda was born during Ethnia's exile in Silesse following the events of the Battle of Belhalla, and for a short time she lived there in hiding with her mother and her elder brother, Amid. However, when Linda was still very young, Ethnia's elder brother Bloom arrived in Silesse and found them, abducting Ethnia and Linda while inadvertently leaving Amid behind.[1] The two were taken to Alster, the seat of Bloom's rule over the Manster District, and imprisoned in the castle, where they were subjected to years of constant abuse and torment from Bloom's wife Hilda. Following her mother's demise, Linda was left with a single pendant as a memento of her.

By Grann 777, long after Ethnia's death, Linda had entered Bloom's employ as one of his chief fighters in the Manster District. However, despite her service to Bloom, she frequently broke rank to assist the villagers suppressed by Bloom's rule.[2] Late in the siege of Leonster following its recapture by Leif, Bloom deployed Linda as the leader of a small unit of mages to launch an attack on the western Fort Melgen, which had recently been captured by Seliph. During this skirmish she encountered Amid, who upon spotting her pendant identified her as his sister and convinced her to join him on Seliph's side. She continued to serve under Seliph for the rest of the war, eventually pitting herself against both Bloom and Hilda in the name of avenging her mother.

Personality and character

As a result of the years of abuse she suffered, Linda was initially very meek and submissive, obeying Bloom's commands and shrugging off his taunts to avoid further torment.[3] After meeting Amid and joining Seliph, while still timid and quiet, she quickly became more assertive and determined to right the wrongs she and her family had inflicted upon the world by properly helping its people.[4] While still initially terrified of Bloom and Hilda, she nonetheless worked past this out of sheer determination to avenge Ethnia. She also, however, maintained that most of her family was not evil even when Amid still lusted for vengeance, insisting that Bloom, Ishtore and Ishtar were always decent to her and that she didn't wish to fight the latter.[5] She quickly developed an extremely close bond with and respect for Amid upon meeting him.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Linda is currently featured on two cards in Fire Emblem Cipher. These cards and other Japanese Cipher parlance denote her name as (リンダ(ユグドラル) Linda (Jugdral)) in order to differentiate her from Linde, who character-wise is identically-named in Japanese; English-language fandom parlance has no need to make such a distinction.

I found out just recently that it was King Blume who took them from me. I also found out that my mother had passed away but that my sister was still alive! YOU are my sister! I've come all the way from Silesia for you!" — Amid, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  2. "Bloom has some fierce warriors backing him up. There's the 3 sisters, Banba, Fotla, and Eriu, and also a mage named Linda. But Linda has a good heart... even if she is Bloom's niece.
