  • In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Personality and character

As with many characters in Gaiden, there is little characterization. Mae is a cheerful and relaxed girl, she loves to tease Boey. Despite her teasing she does seem to care about him, if he dies she is affected fairly significantly after the war.


Main article: Mae/Supports



If Boey survived
She works together with Boey in the Church of Zofia.

If Boey died
She still sustains a bit of shock from the loss of her bicker buddy Boey.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If Boey survived
Mae returned to Novis and resumed her work at the priory with Boey. The two bickered endlessly before—and after—their wedding, while managing to raise many children during the pauses between barbs. Both of them often remarked that they couldn't possibly be happier.

If Boey died
After the loss of her verbal sparring partner, Boey, Mae fell into a deep depression—but the encouragement of her friends eventually helped light return to her life. She spent her days helping others at the priory, where she was beloved for her kindness and wicked humor.


Death quote

Jeez! I messed up...
— Mae, in Gaiden

She also participates in the fight against Sonya and Deen. Otherwise she mostly appears as a background character with little dialogue.
