|“||I am a taguel. The... The last taguel. We are shape-shifters. Most of your kind calls us "beast" or "coney" in the midst of their hunt. I only helped because my warren owes Ylisse a debt. Do not think us friends, you and I!||”|
Panne (Japanese: ベルベット Velvet) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening. She is the last survivor of a race of shapeshifters called the Taguel. In battle, through the use of a Beaststone, she is able to take on the form of a powerful beast resembling a rabbit. She joins the Shepherds after trying to stop an attempt on Emmeryn's life.

Panne first appears in chapter 6, at the end of turn 1. She joins to assist the player in protecting Emmeryn, in order to pay back the Taguel's debt to the Exalt of Ylisse. After the battle, Emmeryn recognizes that she is a taguel, and is shocked to learn that the rest of Panne's people were killed. Panne is skeptical at first, but she accepts Emmeryn's sympathy upon realizing that Emmeryn truly saw the death of the Taguel as a tragedy. Panne then becomes a regular member of the player's army.

Personality and character
At first, Panne comes across as cold and unkind. She is wary of humans due to their troubled history with the Taguel, referring to them as "man-spawn" even to their faces. However, Emmeryn's kindness and genuine compassion surprises her—it is thanks to this, and not just the taguel's collective debt to the exalt, that she joins the Shepherds. That being said, she takes that debt very seriously. Despite the fact that no other taguel live to hold her accountable, she still traveled to Ylisse all the way from Plegia to try and save Emmeryn's life.
Her initial bluntness is due in part to her being in isolation for so long—many aspects of human culture are totally foreign to her. Through conversations with various characters, she eventually grows more trusting of the humans around her. Even though memories of her massacred people are painful to recall, she enjoys sharing them with others. Despite the weight of her past and her serious, dutiful nature, she still jokes with and teases people close to her. Eventually, Panne comes to see the Shepherds as her new warren—her new home, after many years spent alone.
She is the fastest eater in the army. As her rabbit form might suggest, she quite enjoys carrots, and has hearing far superior to that of humans.
- Main article: Panne/Supports
Panne, Proud Taguel (single ending)
Once the fighting was done, Panne vanished. Some say she returned to live in her warren alone; others claim she eventually found fellow taguel survivors.
Robin, High Deliverer & Panne, Proud Taguel
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of his origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—he loved his wife, Panne, above all else.
Frederick, Cold Lieutenant & Panne, Proud Taguel
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Panne, showed no interest in his work but gradually learned to enjoy human life.
Virion, Archest Archer & Panne, Proud Taguel
Virion returned home to Rosanne, where he was labeled a traitor and a coward, or else ignored entirely. But his wife Panne's dedication did much to bring him back into good standing among his people.
Stahl, Viridian Knight & Panne, Proud Taguel
Stahl continued his service as an Ylissean knight and led crucial missions across the realm. His scatterbrained gaffes sometimes got on Panne's nerves, but the two still made a happy life together.
Vaike, Zero to Hero & Panne, Proud Taguel
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, the people were even fonder of Panne—and she, in turn, grew to love the town's wild and woolly nature.
Kellam, Oft Forgotten & Panne, Proud Taguel
Once the fighting was done, Panne vanished. Some say she returned to her warren alone; others claim she found fellow taguel survivors. Her husband's name has been lost to history.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Panne, Proud Taguel
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Panne had no problems with the cold winters and would often forage for rare snow herbs used in steaming pots of tea.
Ricken, Upcoming Mage & Panne, Proud Taguel
While continuing to study magic, Ricken realized how childish some of his actions had been. Panne took him to the wilds, reminding him he was a small part of a greater plan.
Gaius, Candy Stealer & Panne, Proud Taguel
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Amazingly, Panne dirtied her hands right along with her husband, using her keen night vision to expedite jobs.
Gregor, Swell Sword & Panne, Proud Taguel
After the war, Gregor briefly sank into a life of excess. It was his wife, Panne, who broke the cycle and invited him to see her warren, after which the two traveled from land to land as mercenaries.
Libra, Fetching Friar & Panne, Proud Taguel
Many an unfortunate child found joy in the small orphanage Libra and his wife built after the war. The children loved Libra like a mother and often pestered Panne to transform and give them bunny rides.
Henry, Twisted Mind & Panne, Proud Taguel
Henry settled down with Panne and turned out to be a surprisingly good father. Their newborn son was far more taguel than human and would come to be known as his dying race's last hope.
Donnel, Village Hero & Panne, Proud Taguel
Donnel returned to his tiny village and built a happy life with his mother and his wife, Panne. This new "warren" had more than enough nature to please any taguel, and her heart found a home at last.

- Panne's writing shows some inconsistency as to the timeline of her warren's massacre. She mentions her mother having raised her, and talks about her brother in a support with Henry, and says to Olivia that she reminded her of a taguel girl she used to be friends with. This, along with her knowledge of Taguel culture exemplified in her dialogue with Virion, all seem to suggest that she was at least a teenager by the time her home was destroyed. However, in her supports with her son Yarne, she says she knows nothing of Taguel culture and that she never knew her mother. This would suggest that the destruction of her warren happened when she was an infant, but is clearly not the case.
