...Bah. I suppose you want some kind of congratulations now, right? Well, too bad. You're a snot-nosed whelp, and I'm still better than you. Don't ever forget that.
— Shinon to Ike

Shinon is a pre-promoted sniper who appears early on in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. He also appears in Part 3 in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He does not believe Ike could lead the Greil Mercenaries after Greil's death, and left the group afterwards. He also dislikes the Laguz, calling them "sub-humans".

Personality and character

Shinon is rather stubborn and self-centered. He also makes rather sarcastic comments, and does not get along with Ike very well, constantly reminding him that he should change the name of the mercenaries. He shows dislike for laguz, and appears to have a drinking problem, as demonstrated in a base conversation in Path of Radiance, where he rants at Ike before throwing up.

He seems to have some respect for Rolf however, as Shinon was the one who taught Rolf to use a bow and arrow.

Death quotes

Urgh… Pah. What a stupid way to live…
— Shinon, in Path of Radiance.
Unnhh… Curses… [...] What’re you planning? D-do it…now… Finish me. [...] …Ha… Idiot…
— Shinon, in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance if spoken to with Rolf and defeated by Ike.
Unnnh… Curses… [...] I told you… No crying… [...] …This is…for the best… I…can…
— Shinon, in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance if spoken to with Rolf and defeated by someone other than Ike.
Unh……… Messed that up, didn’t I… Man…what a…lousy life…that was…
— Shinon, in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance if not spoken to with Rolf.
Ugh… This is…such a crock… What a…boring way to die. Co…Commander…Greil… I… I… I’m…
— Shinon, in Radiant Dawn.
Why do these softheads keep fighting?! There’s no chance they’ll ever win this battle! I’m pulling back for now. I’m not wasting my arrows on these fools!
— Shinon's retreat quote in part 3 chapter 13 of Radiant Dawn.

Battle quotes

Hah! You think I would die in such a place, ME?
— An unused quote intended to be Shinon's escape quote in Path of Radiance.
Haven’t changed a bit, have you? You’re still a mouthy piece of work. Listen up! Daein’s a great place to work right now. The pay’s great, and strength at arms is the only thing that determines class standing. You want to join me? [...] Well then, only one thing to do. Out of the goodness of my heart, I’ll teach you how adults fight. And a far as payment goes… I’ll take your life. How’s that sound?
— Shinon, when fighting Boyd in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Come on, Gatrie. You can’t be worried about me forever. You’re a mercenary. All you need to do is worry about your own skin. You got it?
— Shinon, when fighting Gatrie in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Heh. I always knew it would come to this, Ike. [...] Watch yourself!
— Shinon, when fighting Ike in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Shut your mouth, Rhys! I don’t have the patience for one of your little sermons. Besides, you should be worried about your own life instead of mine.
— Shinon, when fighting Rhys in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
This is war. It’s all terrible. Tears mean nothing in the heat of battle. Remember that.
— Shinon, when fighting Mist in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Ha! Why would I want to go to work for a bunch of stiff-necked bluestockings? I’m a commoner. No matter how good I am, I would never rise above a middling commission. It’s different in Daein. If you’re a skilled fighter, you can rise all the way to the top. [...] It’s everything. All right, enough with the pleasantries. You ready to go?
— Shinon, when fighting Oscar in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Well, well, lookee here. The little boy plays soldier… How sweet. Your job’s always been just to use that big brain of yours. That’s why you spend your time hiding behind Ike’s apron. Isn’t it, Soren? [...] Hah! You’re still a snotty little whelp, aren’t you? Get ready to die, little man.
— Shinon, when fighting Soren in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Long time, no see, Captain. You know, we didn’t always see eye to eye, but… I never once minded taking orders from you. [...] Yes, I think that’s best. So in the end, we finally agree on something, eh?
— Shinon, when fighting Titania in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Wipe that pathetic look off your face. Come on, ready your bow. On the battlefield, emotion ain’t worth spit. I taught you that, didn’t I?
— Shinon, when fighting Rolf in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
