Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Syrene joins in Chapter 17 as a pre-promoted level 1 Falcon Knight. Her base stats are low for that point of the game, with a very low HP of 27. Syrene has high enough stats to fight one enemy per phase, but will likely die engaging more enemies than that. Syrene has an A rank in lances and a C rank in swords, allowing her to use plenty of weapons. However, by the time Syrene can be recruited, the player may have multiple units that completely eclipse Syrene's combat; particularly Seth, who has similar base stats but has significantly more chapters to gain experience, and Vanessa, Tana, and Cormag, other fliers who will likely have stronger combat and survivability.

As a Falcoknight, Syrene has flying utility, which can be useful in Chapter 20, where the player can move units across the difficult terrain straight to the boss, and in Chapter 18, where fliers can reach and destroy the Gorgon Eggs faster than other units; however, Syrene has no advantages there over other flying units available to the player.

Personality and character

Syrene is a caring, polite woman, friendly to all she interacts with. She always tries to care for others, but she likes to think of herself as a mother more than as a sister.[1] Still, she often tries to be a "hero"; Gilliam reminds her not to be so.[2] In her conversations, she is always friendly and polite, and prefers that Vanessa and Tana see her more as a sister than a superior. She seems to be a good cook, able to prepare traditional Frelian dishes.[3] Many look up to her, as a sort of older sister figure.

Syrene is the commander of the third battalion of Frelia's pegasus knights. She is a dedicated soldier, along with her younger sister Vanessa. Additionally, she acts as a supportive older figure for Tana, having been assigned to watch over her as her first mission.[4]
