Item (Equipment/Shield)

First game

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

The Rion Shield (Japanese: リオン家の盾 Lyon Family's Shield) is an accessory item in the shield category of equipment that debuted in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It is the target of the sub-quest "Taken Treasure: Desaix’s Vault", where it has been taken from its owner, Lord Rion, by Desaix and sold to Grieth. Returning it to Lord Rion in Zofia Castle earns the player a Pegasus Cheese and 300 renown. Alternatively, the player may keep it and use it in battle, where it offers modest boosts to both defenses and attack, as well as more combat arts than ordinary shields.


The Rion Shield is a family heirloom belonging to House Rion, one of the oldest noble houses in Zofia. It was originally a gift to the family from Queen Zofia I.[1] In the year 401, the current Lord Rion surrendered it to Desaix at his demand during the latter's coup d'etat.[1] Desaix then sold the shield off to Grieth.[2] Lord Rion commissioned Alm and the Deliverance to retrieve the shield from Desaix since he knew they were about to march on his fortress, but he did not know that by that point the shield was being held in Grieth's Desert Stronghold.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
The prized shield of
House Rion of Zofia.


  • The Rion Shield can also be presented to Lord Fugue in Zofia Harbor if the player does not have the Fugue Shield. The Fugue and Rion houses are enemies, so doing this will enrage Lord Fugue.[3]
  • Since the Rion Shield is found on Celica's route, completing the sub-quest requires that the player either send it to Alm using one of the traveling merchants or wait until Act 6.
  • Like the Fugue Shield, the Rion Shield is a recolored Silver Shield with a different pattern.

  1. 1.0 1.1 "I am the eldest son of the Rion family, one of Zofia's oldest houses. But that dog Desaix demanded we give him our greatest heirloom—a shield. The Rion Shield was a gift from Queen Zofia I, passed down ever since. If I can't find some way to recover it, my ancestors' legacy will be lost. The Deliverance is marching on Desaix's fortress, is it not? If you chance to find the Rion Shield, please see it returned to me. You will be rewarded handsomely, of course. I thank you in advance." — Lord Rion, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  2. "The Rion Shield? No, I ain't seen it. But I hear that Desaix sold off some of his plunder to Grieth." — A soldier, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  3. "By the gods! This shield bears the mark of our sworn enemies, the Rion clan! Pah! The very sight of it disgusts me! Take it away!" — Lord Fugue, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
