Ephraim and Eirika meeting Monica.





Orson (husband)


Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Darling. Darling. Darling...darling...darling...darling...
— Monica

Monica (Japanese: モニカ Monica) was the wife of Orson. Six months prior to the events of chapter 16 in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones Monica died, spurring her husband's slow descent into madness.[1]

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones


Monica is an unmentioned character until her significance is revealed later in the game by Orson's actions. Orson betrays his country by trying to kill its princess and siding with the invading Grado, all to restore his beloved to life. Orson's devotion to Monica is the driving motivation behind his betrayal. Though, of course, Monica is directly responsible for none of this.

Monica's reanimated corpse is present and has a speaking role in chapter 16, her appearance is never revealed to the player, though, judging by Ephraim not reacting in disgust until after she speaks may imply she was not too far decayed.[2] Seth offers to kill Monica, though Ephraim declines the offer and destroys the reanimated corpse himself, saying that she could not be considered truly alive anymore.

Personality and character

Monica is deceased before the events of the game, and her only appearance is as a reanimated corpse, resulting in little of her character being known, though Orson did love her very much. In her appearance she is shown to have little mental function, only being able to speak a single word, "darling".


  • While no actual date is given, Orson states that Monica's birthday is on the same day as the events of chapter 16.
