Mae (Japanese: メイ May) is a mage and Mila priestess appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden. She is a friend of Celica and Boey.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Mae is one of the first characters to join Celica's group. She resides in Nomah's Mila Shrine with Celica. Aside from her initial recruitment, Mae has no other story role or dialogue.

  • 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.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


Mae, like Boey, acts as one of Celica's personal guards on her journey to the Temple of Mila, with her role being expanded upon greatly in comparison to Fire Emblem Gaiden. Throughout their journey, Mae acts as a sort of confidant to Celica. During the events of Act Four, Celica makes her intention of sacrificing herself known, and Mae quickly objects to this. After, Mae and the rest of Celica's party are warped away by Jedah, being forced to fight their way through Terrors. Mae, alongside the rest of the previously-lost party, reunites with Celica immediately before the final fight of Act Five, having been guided to her by the voice of Mila.

Personality and character

Mae is an upbeat and energetic girl who is implied to be Celica's closest friend from the priory. Despite their difference in background, with Celica being royalty and Mae being a commoner, Mae is completely relaxed and casual around Celica, calling her by name as opposed to Boey's more formal "milady." Both Mae and Celica share a close relationship, with each acting as a confidant for the other. During her final base conversation, Mae mentions to Celica that she's always there for her if Celica needs to get something off her chest. Likewise, in their support conversations, Mae confides in Celica her self-image issues. She worried that her personality might make her seem childish instead of womanly. In particular, she worries that Boey doesn't see her as a woman (though she doesn't confirm who she's talking about to Celica herself). Celica's opinion clearly matters to Mae, as she becomes at ease when Celica reassures her.

In her C Support with Boey, she mentions that she'd never thought she'd see combat, despite knowing that it was always a possibility if it meant protecting Celica. This once more showcases her more positive and optimistic nature, while also not compromising her duties to Celica. Mae is also shown to be slightly scatterbrained at times, as shown when discussing how the Masked Knight's personality seems to shift depending on whether or not he's wearing the mask, only for Boey to point out that that's the point of the disguise in the first place.

Mae's relationship with Boey is founded on rivalry, though it eventually blossoms into mutual romance. Mae is quick to remind Boey of his faults when he boasts, such as his fear of Terrors or his initial lack of magical aptitude, and often teases him throughout the story. In their A Support, the two of them come to realize their mutual feelings for one another, and in the epilogue it's revealed that the two got married and had many children at some point in time after the events of the game.


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.

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