— Tailtiu, on her father's actions

Tailtiu (Japanese: 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

Role

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 Bragi 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.

Analysis

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

Tailtiu is a situational unit who relies on high-risk, high-reward strategies to be the most effective. Her most notable feature is the Wrath skill, which dramatically raises her critical rate when below half HP. When active, Tailtiu can one-shot most enemies, but setting it up requires that she remain one hit away from death. Tailtiu is also restricted to foot movement before and after promotion, limiting her range and usefulness. Still, Tailtiu can be useful in providing extra magic damage to the mostly low Resistance foes she will go against. For experience gain, Tailtiu can pick up the extra levels she needs by rescuing all or most of the villagers in Chapter 4, as the players other units might not need the help by that point.

As a mother, Tailtiu's two magical children can vary drastically in quality. Azel provides the most straightforward boost to both Arthur and Teeny, granting both children Pursuit and minor Fjalar blood. Combined with Tailtiu's minor Thrud blood, Arthur and Teeny will have very solid Magic, Skill, and Speed on top of improved Fire and Thunder ranks. Lewyn is the other good magical option, effectively giving up on Teeny while turning Arthur into a god. Arthur is arguably the best user of Forseti (over Ced and Coipre) because he joins almost from the start and eventually picks up a horse. He will not have Pursuit, but the Forseti blood and tome give him enough Speed to activate Adept reliably. Claud, while he shows up with Tailtiu and is magic oriented, does not make a good father for either child. Arthur cannot use staves and Teeny only gains access to them on promotion. The additional staff rank from Bragi blood gives her access to Rescue and Fortify, but she isn't the best user of either.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

Tailtiu is one of the characters added to the game in the World of Holy War update, and became available for summoning by players on October 16, 2017. Only one variation of Tailtiu is currently available in Heroes, based on her Genealogy of the Holy War incarnation.

Although initially available exclusively at five-star rarity when initially added to the game and added to the four-star summoning pool after the end of her initial New Heroes summoning event, a three-star variation of Tailtiu was distributed to players who cleared her themed Four Heroes event map; a rarity pool shake-up on April 5, 2019 made Tailtiu available in three-star rarity via normal summoning.

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]

  • In Chapter 5, if the two are lovers, Tailtiu can talk to Claud, Lex or Azel after Phinora Castle has been seized. This conversation yields no reward.
