The legendary female knight, Mathilda --
That name shall surely be carved within the histories of Valentia for eternity.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If Clive survived
Mathilda cast her armor aside and wed Clive. She was rarely seen in public after that, having perhaps chosen to support her husband behind the scenes instead. However, her legendary exploits as a knight are sure to live on forever in Valentian history.

If Clive died
Clive's death forced Mathilda to carry on in his place as captain of the One Kingdom's Brotherhood of Knights. The grief in her heart steeled her, and she became a key figure in the kingdom's growth. Her legendary exploits are sure to live on forever in Valentian history.

FEGM Mathilda.png

Mathilda has a similar role to hers in Gaiden. She has been captured and set for execution by Desaix, and Alm's forces set out to rescue her.

During the rescue mission Kliff helps untie her. During this, Kliff being distracted with helping Mathilda, Desaix fatally impales Kliff. This horrifies Mathilda. After Desaix is killed by the Deliverance Mathilda makes no further appearances.

  1. "Alm, do you have any brothers or sisters? My little sisters back home have been writing me and clamoring for my return. I've started to wonder if all siblings are like that. Stranger yet, they're fully grown! You'd think they could get by without me. But when you consider how fond Clair is of Clive... Well, perhaps children just naturally look up to elder brothers and sisters. ...Hmm? How many sisters do I have? Four, actually. I love them, but they can be quite trying sometimes. For they tend to chatter like harpies whenever they want attention..." — Mathilda, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
