Look, all that fightin' stuff's beyond me.
— Tailtiu, on her father's actions

Tailtiu (ティルテュ Tailto) was the middle child of Duke Reptor of the Friege dukedom of Grannvale. Uninterested in her father's avaricious schemes and opposition to the Chalphy family, she accompanied Duke Claud of Edda to Agustria as a bodyguard, and with him joined the army of Sigurd of Chalphy in fighting the Orgahil pirates, in exile to Silesse and in their ill-fated march on Grannvale to clear Sigurd's name.

Tailtiu survived the Battle of Belhalla, after which she fled to Silesse with her children, Arthur and Teeny. Though she successfully spent years in hiding there, she and Teeny were eventually discovered and captured by her brother Bloom, leaving Arthur behind[2]; Tailtiu and Teeny were imprisoned and subjected to the care of Bloom's wife Hilda, whose years of constant abuse resulted in Tailtiu's death.[3][4]

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Six months into Sigurd's occupation of Agustria, Tailtiu accompanied Claud to Agustria to confer with Sigurd, where she expressed her disinterest in her father's behavior. She then followed Claud to Blagi Tower, and the two emerged from it after Sigurd defeated Chagall at Silvail Castle. With the Orgahil pirates running rampant in the area, she protected Claud until the two could return to Sigurd's group.

Personality and character

Prior to her incarceration, Tailtiu was upbeat, flighty, loud-mouthed, slightly short-tempered and blunt, willing to express her opinion on matters without caring for tact, particularly when bored.[5] Despite her exterior, she was easily concerned about the opinions others held about her, particularly in the context of her father's status as the nemesis of her allies in Sigurd's army.[6] She and Azel of Velthomer were close friends since their childhood.[7]
