||I’ve been told she was a strong woman, beautiful and proud. She spoke with the voice of nature, and she lived at one with the earth.
Nada Kuya (Japanese: ナーダ クーヤ Nada Kuya) was a legendary figure in Caer Pelyn's history. Described as a "warrior princess" she defended the village from an unspecified invasion in the distant past.
Nada Kuya has no important role pertaining to the main plot, though Eirika does take inspiration from her if she speaks with Saleh.
Personality and character
Nada Kuya, being a historical figure and thus not present, has few known traits. She is said to be "one with the earth", but little else is mentioned.
- Nada Kuya's weapon, described as: "[...] a narrow sword made from a fang gifted to her by the dragonkin.", is incredibly similar to the story behind the creation of Archanea's Falchion.
- In Eirika's and Saleh's paired ending, their child is said to resemble Nada Kuya.
