Artwork of Rowan from Warriors.

A hero from the world of Fire Emblem Warriors. As prince of Aytolis, he seeks with his twin sister to use the Shield of Flames to stop the Chaos Dragon. He can be brash, but he has the strength and can-do attitude to pull through any situation. His father died when he was young, so now he longs to be a knight. He uses sword techniques inherited from both Aytolis and Gristonne--and wields his shield equally as well. He excels at knocking back his enemies.

Kings are weak -- it's as simple as that. They need others to protect them, and they can't do anything on their own. I'm gonna be a knight instead, strong enough to protect everyone.
— Rowan, to Marth.

Rowan (Japanese: シオン Shion) is a character originating from Fire Emblem Warriors and the prince of Aytolis. He is one of the kingdom's royal twins, being slightly younger than his sister Lianna and the more reckless of the two.

Fire Emblem Warriors

Upon starting the game the player chooses which of the twins to make their main character. For the first five chapters of the game the chosen twin is force-deployed and the unchosen twin is an assisting NPC. The choice has no long term ramifications past the initial few chapters where both can be freely chosen by the player.

Role

Rowan, Lianna, and Darios escape Aytolis castle.

Rowan first appears with Lianna at the start of the game arguing about who is going to take the Aytolisian throne; to Yelena's disappointment. The argument abruptly ends when a soldier walks in and announces that Darios, a friend of the twins, has arrived at the castle. Rowan runs off to meet him with Lianna protesting that Darios had promised to study with her, not spar with him. During the sparring rounds the castle is invaded by mysterious forces, the three are forced to leave Yelena behind but they are able to take the Shield of Flames with them. Yelena tells them to go to the temple as they escape.

Rowan appears in basically every story dialogue scene in the game with his sister Lianna. After convincing the Shepherds to join them and obtaining the first Gleamstone from Chrom, Rowan attempts to contact the Hoshidoian army while Lianna attempts to contact the clashing Nohrian army; each army thinks that the other has kidnapped Corrin. Rowan meets up with a lost Sakura and offers to help her find her siblings. The two attempt to convince the Hoshidans that they are allies and simply want to return Sakura to their care, but Hinoka, Takumi, and Ryoma all have to be fought before they bother listening to any conversation. He then reunites with Lianna, who had to do the same thing with Elise and the Nohrian siblings. After reuniting they locate Corrin, brainwashed by Iago, and free her, Xander, and Ryoma, by defeating Iago. The Gleamstones from Xander, Ryoma, and Corrin are also obtained.

Marth assists the twins in taking the Fortified Citadel.

Having gathered their forces, Rowan and Lianna make their way towards Gristonne's Fortified Citadel and fail to take it, having to leave Darios behind in enemy hands. As they retreat they are assisted by Marth, Caeda and Tiki. Rowan and Lianna head for the World Tree to obtain the Divine Dragon's power, the swords Facinna and Enliron. The group returns to the Fortified Citadel, rescue Darios, and complete the Shield of Flames with Marth's Gleamstone; unfortunately, Darios, now possessed by Velezark, steals the shield and returns to the Aytolis capital to sacrifice Yelena in a ritual.

Rowan and Lianna defeat Darios and rescue Yelena, but they are unable to prevent Velezark from being revived. Velezark then leaves Aytolis, making his way to the World Tree to destroy it. Rowan and Lianna chase after him and defeat him at the World Tree. The heroes are returned to their worlds and Rowan and Lianna return to Aytolis with Yelena. They both opt to take the crown, both becoming the rulers of Aytolis.

Personality and character

Like his sister, he is disinterested in ruling Aytolis when he becomes of age. He encourages Lianna to become queen instead, while at the same time his sister insists he become ruler, putting the two at an impasse.[2] Rowan is completely obsessed with becoming a powerful knight so he can protect the ones he loves. His desire to put Lianna on the throne stems from this obsession, as his father was a sickly man who died young; due to this, he believes that the stress of ruling weakens a king and prevents them from growing strong.[3]

[...] Shion’s (Rowan's) older twin sister. Clever and is understanding of her own faults, so she has no desire to inherit the throne. Rather, she encourages Shion to become king." — Jedi, Famitsu details on FE Warriors in depth, Serenesforest.net, Published: May 31 2017, Retrieved: December 26 2017

    Rowan: Not a chance. If my father taught me anything, it's that kings are weak. I won't end up like him, that's for sure! My sister may take the crown for all I care. I'm focused on the sword.
    Xander: Are you so sure about your father?
    Rowan: Of course I am. I've been told that he was often sick and could barely fight.

  4. "Yes indeed. Because there are many sword characters, there were talks during development to give an axe to the boy (Shion/Rowan) and a spear to the girl (Lianna). However, the twins are Lords, and while we were designing the game prologue, we wanted those who don’t really play action games to be able to properly play it too, so we wanted to create the right kind of tutorial. In that case, the enemy positions and gameplay experience would change, and it wouldn’t feel right if they would change based on the protagonists’ weapons. We want people to understand the weapon triangle starting from the sword. We want people who don’t even know about Fire Emblem to be able to grasp the rules, so we made [the tutorial] to stay the same regardless of the choices for the two."Fire Emblem Warriors devs – Chrom was made first, Lissa / Lucina / Frederick / Robin talk, much more, Nintendoeverything.com, Published: August 12th 2017, Retrieved: August 12th 2017
