Appearance(s)
Lady Liprica's beauty caught his eye, and she was stolen away in the night. He took her to his castle and forced her to join his seraglio of countless brides. Despite the luxury, I expect life in the castle proved most difficult for her.
— Irma on Liprica

Liprica (Japanese: リプリカ Liprica) was the late Queen of Zofia and former priestess of Mila[1] mentioned in Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Biography

Years before the Zofia-Rigel war Liprica was a priestess at the temple of Mila. She spent her tenure at the temple of Mila while Mila herself was there; her activities during this time are not deeply elaborated.

As is typical of the Zofian royal family, Lima IV made visits to the temple to seek Mila's guidance. During one of these visits her beauty attracted Lima IV's attention, and he had her kidnapped from its grounds[2] and obligated her to marry him. She died shortly after giving birth to Celica from an illness she supposedly contracted after the stress of participating in the royal court.[3]

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Role

Liprica is a background character that died before the events of the game, so her role is fairly minimal. Though her tragic story is an example of the corruption that plagued Zofia before the war with Rigel. She never appears in-person in Gaiden.

She does provide a royal family circlet to the priestess of the temple, which one of the priestesses gives to Celica allowing her to promote.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Role

Her role remains mostly the same as it did in Gaiden, though an illustration of her does appear in the game.

She and Lima IV have placeholder portraits in the game data, suggesting that the pair were going to appear in a standard dialogue scene at some point, possibly in a Memory Prism or another flashback-type scene.

Personality and character

Not much is known about Liprica, but her motherly love for Celica was not dulled by her contempt for Lima IV. She also did not openly hold any ill will to Celica's Rigelian-descended half-brother Conrad, unlike Lima's other concubines[4]

Liprica, after giving birth to Celica, swore that she would never allow her daughter to stand before Mila.[5] It technically is not elaborated on why she said this, though it could be presumed that she detested the corrupt and hedonistic state that Mila allowed Zofia to fall into. It is also possible that she distrusted Mila for doing nothing about the fact that the Zofian King was free to kidnap her servants with seemingly no repercussions.
