Nailah (Japanese: ニケ Nike) is the queen of the wolves of the kingdom of Hatari and a playable character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Nailah first appears as a playable unit in Part I, Chapter 8 along with Rafiel; she returns in the Endgame of Part I. In all of her Part I appearances, her death results in a Game Over.

She does not return again until she appears as an NPC in Part III, Chapter 13, carrying Rafiel. She will attempt to reach Micaiah, but the turn limit will expire before then.

In Part IV, Nailah is assigned to the Greil Army. If Volug is alive and assigned to the Greil Army, it unlocks a base conversation which discusses Volug's silence and grants an Elixir.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Nailah is a laguz royal that is available in chapter 1-8 and 1-E, and is forced into Ike's group in Part IV. She has formshift which allows her to stay transformed without relying on items. Nailah can easily one-round every Part I enemy unit, and she is bulky and very dodgy so she will never be at risk of dying. She has the highest mobility of the available units in 1-8 and 1-E, having 9 move and no or little movement penalties through indoors, thickets, and ledges. She can also rescue many units, including the Black Knight, can shove many non-mounted units, and can use Glare on units to allow babying weaker units. Her only weakness in Part I is her lack of 2-range, which especially hurts her in 1-8 as there are many 2-range enemy units near her.

When Nailah is available in Part IV, her stats are still high enough to one-round most enemy units, only struggling against generals on hard mode if she doesn't crit or activate Savage. She still has the durability and avoid to be exposed to extensive enemy phases, only being weak to fire magic if it hits. She still is limited to 1-range, so she cannot counterattack 2-range units. In endgame, she will double all enemy units except for Ashera's auras; she will not have enough power to one-round endgame generals on higher difficulties. She has a respectable resistance base for a laguz unit, so she will not be as vulnerable to endgame magic. Her growths are poor all around, only having a high luck growth; however, on average at level 40, she gains just enough strength and speed to fix her endgame offensive issues, doubling auras.

Nailah has Glare and Guard, both extremely situational skills that do not benefit her much. Guard in particular is unreliable and is better off removed and sold. Her mastery skill, Savage, will have a high activation rate due to her high skill, though her extreme biorhythm cycle will noticeably impact her activation rates. She is the best recipient of Part I's Pass skill, because with her high movement, it allows her to bypass all the ledge enemies in 1-E, creating a valuable shortcut for other units to access. However, this means her pass skill will not be available to reassign until 4-1. She can also make good use of Savior as she has the highest mobility of all of her available chapters before endgame, due to no indoor movement penalties for 1-E and 4-4.

Nailah has a wind affinity which gives a light accuracy and avoid boost. As her stats alone provide overkill accuracy and avoid until endgame, this is mostly unnecessary for her. Units that give an attack or avoid boost and are on Ike's Part IV team benefit her, particularly units with earth, fire, and dark affinities. It is worth noting that her bond support with Rafiel gives her a crit and crit avoid boost, and they share the same availability, so Rafiel makes a solid supporting unit for Nailah.

Nailah appears as an equippable Bond Ring. She can be summoned using Micaiah's Emblem Ring.

While Nailah has the pride, air, and manners of a queen, she can be distant, serious, and blunt. She is very quick to form bonds with others, be they Laguz, Beorc, or even Branded, forming a lasting friendship with Rafiel and a fast friendship with Micaiah.

Battle quotes

Being outnumbered isn't such a bad thing. At the very least, I'll get a good workout.
— Nailah, as an enemy in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
The laguz of the west. I've been itching to test your mettle.
— Nailah, when fighting any laguz in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Ike: Hold on a second! When did you decide to side with them?
Nailah: I spoke to Micaiah. She made me see her side of the conflict. Besides, she needed the extra help.
Ike: She must be an amazing talker. What did she say?
Nailah: I could tell you, but you wouldn't really understand. The situation is quite complicated. But Daein has no way out. One side or the other will be sacrificed.
Ike: Queen Nailah...
Nailah: Don't worry your pretty head about it, beorc hero. You and I are warriors–you of the sword and I of the fang. We understand what to do now.
Ike: Are you...enjoying yourself?
Nailah: If we can't avoid fighting, we might as well enjoy it, agreed? Besides, I've been curious about your swordsmanship. You seem strong, for a beorc. Show me what you can do.
Ike: How could I say no to that? Ready when you are, Your Majesty.

— Nailah, when fighting Ike in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: Hm. I'd always assumed that you cats were weak, but I was wrong. I've been watching you fight this battle. You're really very good.
Ranulf: Queen Nailah, while I'm honored to receive praise from you, I'd really rather not fight you. I think I'd much rather run away with my tail tucked firmly between my legs, to be honest.
Nailah: Don't be so modest, Ranulf. You'll be a good challenge, I'm sure, and those are rare for me. Ready?
Ranulf: Thrown around by Skrimir, cornered by General Zelgius, and now this. Can someone tell me why I always seem to pull the short straw?

— Nailah, when fighting Ranulf in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: ...I must confess, I've wanted this since I first laid eyes on you. I can hardly hold myself back right now.
Tibarn: Lady, the feeling is mutual. Why do you think I winged my way over here? It looks to me like we can have a nice, private time right here. No interruptions. Just you and me.
Nailah: Hawk King Tibarn. I think that a few more scars on your face will complete that rugged look you're going for.
Tibarn: For a beautiful woman like you, I'll gladly offer my head. Of course you'll have to bring me down to the ground first.
Nailah: Challenge accepted. I think you'll regret it once I add your feathers to my necklace, though. Oh, and let's not tell Rafiel about this, agreed? He wouldn't understand these urges of ours.

— Nailah, when fighting Tibarn in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: Ah, the lion prince! You'll give me the challenge I'm craving, won't you? I'm having trouble finding decent enemies.
Skrimir: Gladly, Queen Nailah. I've wanted to fight a wolf ever since I heard the legends of your people as a cub. Let me show you why I am the heir to the lion king. You'd better hope you eastern laguz heal as well as we do.

— Nailah, when fighting Skrimir in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Ilyana: Wolf Queen...
Nailah: Ilyana. I am not familiar with beorc magic. You might actually stand a chance, if you strike quickly.
Ilyana: Um, OK... But... Queen Nailah? Would you promise me something? If we both live through this, will you take me for some good Hatari cooking?

— Nailah, when fighting Ilyana in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: Zihark... You used to fight for Micaiah.
Zihark: Queen Nailah. Do you fight for Daein now?
Nailah: Well, let's say I've replaced some of the deserters.
Zihark: That's right, I'm a deserter. I don't have to defend my decision. I made the right choice.
Nailah: Zihark, I don't care. These are beorc problems. What I'm interested in is you and your blade. Shall we get started? I remember you as a skilled swordsman. I'm excited to see your work up close.
Zihark: I don't know if my blade can match your jaws, Queen Nailah, but I'm honored to face you. At your ready.

— Nailah, when fighting Zihark in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Jill: Queen Nailah! You're fighting for Daein now?
Nailah: To tell you the truth, I'm interested in fighting you, Jill. An armed beorc trained to fight from the back of a wyvern... Now, that's what I call a challenge!
Jill: Very well, Queen Nailah. I don't know why you've switched sides, but if it's a fight you want, you've found one!

— Nailah, when fighting Jill in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Oliver: S-sub-human! A hideous sub-human is attacking me! Help! Someone help me! I'm much too lovely for this!
Nailah: What a strangely shaped creature... Is this some rare subspecies of beorc?

— Nailah, when fighting Oliver in Part IV, Chapter 4 of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: So you're Hetzel, huh? Rafiel told me about you.
Hetzel: That's right... Yes... I'm... I'm the one who saved his life. He's still alive because of me!
Nailah: Ancient history doesn't change the fact that you're fighting against him now. And if fight him, you fight me.

— Nailah, when fighting Hetzel in Part IV, Endgame (1) of Radiant Dawn.
Lekain: Ah, interesting! You're one of those sub-humans from the east that I've been hearing about.
Nailah: And you're one of the fat, corrupted pieces of filth that we're fighting.
Lekain: How dare you! I am Duke of Gaddos!
Nailah: Gaddos? Where's that? That name means nothing to me. How do beorc always get the idea that the place they're from is the center of everything?
Lekain: Silence, you loathsome cur! I'll ensure that your country is left in ruins!

— Nailah, when fighting Lekain in Part IV, Endgame (1) of Radiant Dawn.
Dheginsea: You... are of the wolf people?
Nailah: Yes. After the floods, we built our country to the east of the great desert.
Dheginsea: ...So we weren't the only ones to survive...
Nailah: Until we met Rafiel, we too thought ours were the only people left.
Dheginsea: In your country, are there only people of the wolf tribe?
Nailah: No, beorc live there, as well. There are also a number of what you call the "parentless." Children born of both laguz and beorc parents are still relatively few... but they live normally among us.
Dheginsea: Is that so?
Nailah: That's probably enough chatting. Do you still intend to block our path?
Dheginsea: ...I will not deny my goddess.
Nailah: And I won't deny my conscience. I will revive those turned to stone, and you cannot stop me.

— Nailah, when fighting Dheginsea in Part IV, Endgame (3) of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: Who would've guessed that a madman on the other side of the desert would somehow threaten Hatari?
Sephiran: Hatari. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to see it. The wolf tribe has survived all this time in the far corner of the world. Only the goddess could have known that.
Nailah: Perhaps even she didn't know it. Your goddess isn't perfect, you know. Does an imperfect goddess have the right to judge imperfect beings?
Sephiran: I see your point. Does the creator retain the right to destroy her creations when they are no longer what she envisioned? I imagine we could discuss this sometime... if only we had more time. I believe you alone might be able to sway my opinion on this, Lady Nailah, Queen of Wolves.
Nailah: You have too many opinions. I'm done talking.

— Nailah, when fighting Sephiran in Part IV, Endgame (4) of Radiant Dawn.

Death quotes

I am...defeated... ...Rafiel. Forgive me...
— Nailah, in Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: ... Maybe...I should not have been so cocky..
Rafiel: Queen?!
Nailah: Stop squawking, Rafiel, I'll be all right. ...It makes me happy that you worry for me as you do. But I'll have to retreat for now.

— Nailah's retreat quote in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: I...overestimated my limits...
Rafiel: Your Majesty, fall back. Don't fight any longer. I will take care of you, as you have done for me. Please... You must stop fighting.
Nailah: Rafiel...I will do as you say. I wouldn't want you out there dying without me.

— Nailah, in Part IV, Chapter 4 of Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: ...Maybe...I should not have been so cocky...
Rafiel: Queen...?!
Nailah: Stop squawking, Rafiel, I'll be all right. ...It makes me happy that you worry for me as you do. But I'll have to retreat for now.

The mysterious desert kingdom of Hatari lies in eastern Tellius, and many regard it as a land of mirages beyond the Desert of Death. But Hatari is very much real, and today I’ll be introducing you to its queen, Nailah! In addition to being Hatari’s monarch, Nailah is also the kingdom’s mightiest warrior. When she transforms into her wolf form, she’s unstoppable! She’s also the possessor of an evil eye that has the power to turn its victims to stone. This does make Nailah sound rather scary, especially the whole thing about having an evil eye, but she’s not coldhearted. Take her relationship with her husband, Rafiel, for example—she saved his life after he collapsed during a journey to his destroyed homeland. Nailah is many things: a stern, uncompromising queen, a fearless warrior, a devoted partner… And someone I can look up to!
