Mirage (class)

The Wellspring's reflection of one who stands before it.





The Mirage (Japanese: 真実の泉 Fountain of Truth) is an enemy-exclusive class exclusive to Fire Emblem Awakening. Mirages only appear in the leadup to the action of Paralogue 22; they act as stand-ins during the preparations phase in place of whatever characters the player may choose to deploy for the chapter itself.

All Mirages inherently bear the name ???, with the help text "Shadows of the self reflected in the Wellspring of Truth." Each Mirage has the same portrait, a silhouette, which does not display a battle animation when selected. Mirages are placeholders use to hide their true function, copying player units, from the player until the map is begun.

Determining inventory

Once a Mirage has transformed itself into its target, it will inherit most of the properties of its target; however, its available weapon ranks will default to B/A, and its inventory will be allocated in the following manner:

Target's weapon type Mirage's given items
Sword Silver Sword
Lance Silver Lance, Spear
Axe Silver Axe, Tomahawk
Bow (Non-archer classes) Silver Bow
Bow (Archer classes) Silver Bow, Longbow
Tome* Bolganone, Thoron
Dark tome* Bolganone, Thoron, Waste
Staff Recover, Physic
Beaststone Beaststone+
Dragonstone Dragonstone+

If a target has more than one weapon type available, they will be given the weapons of all of their available weapon types. For example, if the target is a Cavalier, they will be given the allocations of both swords and lances.
