Sully is first introduced as a member of Chrom's volunteer army, The Shepherds, appearing in Chapter 1: Unwelcome Change. Much to her surprise - and chagrin - she is followed by Virion, who upon their meeting immediately begins to flirt with her.
Sully's main story presence begins and ends during Chapter 1; though, if she is married and Paralogue 8: A Duel Disgraced occurs, Sully and Kjelle meet during the battle against Cassius. Afterwards the two, as is mostly typical of parent-child pairs in Awakening, compare their rings and Sully realizes that Kjelle is her daughter, one of the children from the future that returned with Lucina, and welcomes her to her side.

Personality and character
Sully is a capable, rude, no-nonsense cavalier with a tongue as sharp as the weapons she wields. She takes great pride in her strength, becoming dismayed when Frederick beats her as witnessed in a sparring session in a support conversation. The last one you want cooking.
- Main article: Sully/Supports
Sully, Crimson Knight (single ending)
Sully continued her knightly duties and soon became a trusted leader on the field and off. Her dashing figure and significant skills made her a hero to women everywhere.
Chrom, Newly Exalted & Sully, Crimson Knight
After Grima's defeat, Chrom was officially welcomed as Ylisse's new exalt. Queen Sully rode far and wide on his behalf, her gallant and radiant figure the envy of women everywhere.
Robin, High Deliverer & Sully, Crimson Knight
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, Sully, above all else.
Frederick, Cold Lieutenant & Sully, Crimson Knight
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Sully, assisted him, becoming an object of admiration for strong women the world round.
Virion, Archest Archer & Sully, Crimson Knight
Virion returned home to Rosanne, where he was labeled a traitor and a coward, or else ignored entirely. But in time he was forgiven, largely thanks to the bold (and slightly terrifying) nature of his wife, Sully.
Stahl, Viridian Knight & Sully, Crimson Knight
Sully and Stahl became the left and right arms of Ylisse and conducted crucial missions across the realm. Their red-and-green banners soon became known everywhere as a symbol of justice and strength.
Vaike, Zero to Hero & Sully, Crimson Knight
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was no match for Sully, who dragged her poor husband on countless missions in the name of Ylisse.
Kellam, Oft Forgotten & Sully, Crimson Knight
Sully continued her knightly duties and led vital missions, soon becoming a role model for women everywhere. Her husband's name has been lost to history.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Sully, Crimson Knight
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. He and Sully carried out countless missions together, and the latter became close friends with another outspoken woman—Flavia.
Ricken, Upcoming Mage & Sully, Crimson Knight
While continuing to study magic, Ricken realized how childish some of his actions had been. Sully made for a strict, but fair, companion, and the couple thrived together.
Gaius, Candy Stealer & Sully, Crimson Knight
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Sully disapproved and was said to pester her husband to take the examination for Ylissean knighthood instead.
Gregor, Swell Sword & Sully, Crimson Knight
After the war, Gregor briefly sank into a life of excess. Sully pestered her husband to take the Ylissean knighthood examination, but he instead continued his mercenary work on the sly.
Libra, Fetching Friar & Sully, Crimson Knight
Many an unfortunate child found joy in the small orphanage Libra and his wife built after the war. To this day, the children call Libra "Mother" and Sully "Boss."
Henry, Twisted Mind & Sully, Crimson Knight
Henry settled down with Sully and turned out to be a surprisingly good father. Sully trained their newborn daughter hard in the art of war, and the girl rose to every expectation.
Donnel, Village Hero & Sully, Crimson Knight
Donnel returned to his tiny village and built a happy life with his mother and his wife, Sully. The latter established a militia much like the Shepherds to arm the villagers against the threat of brigands.
