Lon'qu previously served as Basilio's champion in Ferox's inter-khan tournament, but was defeated and replaced by Marth. Following Chrom's victory in the tournament as Flavia's champion, Basilio assigned Lon'qu to serve with Chrom, as "West Ferox's contribution" to Ylisse's defense.

Personality and character
Lon'qu is typically silent and unsociable, speaking only when necessary, but he has no idea how to interact with women: he gets flustered in their presence and tries to make a red-faced getaway as soon as they get near. His gynophobia is caused by a traumatic childhood incident in which his childhood friend Ke'ri was killed by bandits despite his best efforts to protect her. As a result, he vowed to never let anyone get close enough to him to be hurt by him in such a way; while he tries to avoid people of both genders, he has a far stronger adverse reaction to women. If Lon'qu is forced to interact with a woman, he will instruct her to keep her distance from him. For some reason, the only woman who does not trigger Lon'qu's gynophobia at first sight is Nowi, likely due to her resembling a young girl even though she is significantly older than most of the women in Awakening.
Despite his difficulty with interacting with women, Lon'qu practices to try to get better at talking to them. In battle, Lon'qu is able to suppress his gynophobia in the face of danger, whenever he fights alongside or against women. Once Lon'qu spends enough time with a woman and potentially marries her, his gynophobia is suppressed in her presence. Should Lon'qu have a daughter, his gynophobia will not trigger.
Aside from his gynophobia, Lon'qu is stoic and takes his swordsmanship very seriously, up to the point that he gets irritated when his technique is under question. He also admires Basilio's strength and strives to become as good a warrior as he is. Basilio, in turn, holds Lon'qu's skills in high regard.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe (single ending)
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Later, he apparently challenged the West-Khan to a duel, though no record remains of why it was fought or who emerged the victor.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Robin, High Deliverer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Lon'qu, above all else.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Lissa, Sprightly Cleric
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Lissa decided to leave Ylisstol and join her husband, strengthening the bond between the realms even further.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Sully, Crimson Knight
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. He and Sully carried out countless missions together, and the latter became close friends with another outspoken woman—Flavia.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Miriel went with him and focused her studies on Ferox's unusual weather conditions.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Maribelle, for her part, could not stand her new home's nonsensical laws and eventually guided both khans to an era of reform.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Panne, Proud Taguel
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Panne had no problems with the cold winters and would often forage for rare snow herbs used in steaming pots of tea.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Cordelia, Knight Paragon
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Cordelia exhibited her usual resilience toward Ferox's cold winters and enjoyed a peaceful, happy life with her husband.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Nowi, Eternal Youth
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. His wife, Nowi, disliked the cold Feroxi winters and used her gift for theatrics to secure everything from fur coats to long tropical holidays.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Tharja, Grim Stalker
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. The cold Feroxi winters proved too much for Tharja, who left time and again in search of heat more in line with a Plegian desert.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Olivia, Shrinking Violet
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. When the West-Khan sent Olivia on errands across the globe, Lon'qu accompanied her without fail and ensured her safety.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Cherche, Wyvern Friend
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Cherche knit many wool caps to shield her husband from the bitter Feroxi winters—and, of course, a cap for her dear wyvern, Minerva.

- "I met Ke'ri's parents. A while back, when I was in Regna Ferox with Minerva. I saved them from a pack of bandits outside the town. They told me that their daughter had been killed by the very same outlaws. Later I heard a young boy named Lon'qu was with her at the time. ...And that he fought like a demon in a vain attempt to protect her. Naturally, when I was introduced to you, I started thinking-" — Cherche, Fire Emblem Awakening
- "Ke'ri died because she was my friend. Never again shall I repeat that mistake. I vowed that I would let no one get close enough to be hurt by me again." — Lon'qu, Fire Emblem Awakening
- "Maribelle: PAW?! Why, you inbred, foul-tempered, low-born gutter rat! Are you so truly averse to women that you must insult them at every turn?
Lon'qu: I... do not function well around them. The closer they get, the worse it is. I beg of you, keep your distance." — Maribelle and Lon'qu, Fire Emblem Awakening
- "Besides...everyone knows I have a crippling fear of women. ...And yet, why do I not feel that fear around her? I must learn why!" — Lon'qu, Fire Emblem Awakening
- "Sully: Well, I won't pry. Everybody's got their secrets. ...Wait. Does this happen to you on the battlefield, too?
Lon'qu: I manage to suppress it in instinctual, life-and-death situations." — Sully and Lon'qu, Fire Emblem Awakening
- "It's strange... When I'm with my own daughter, I don't feel any aversion to women at all. All I feel is...happiness." — Lon'qu, if Nah is his daughter, Fire Emblem Awakening
