Tana (Japanese: ターナ, Turner) is the lively princess of Frelia who appears in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is a friend of Eirika and Ephraim, the princess and prince of neighboring Renais, the sister of Innes, the prince of Frelia, and the daughter of Hayden, king of Frelia. She first appears in Chapter 1, but she is not playable until Chapter 9. Tana is a friendly, cheerful, and determined pegasus knight.
Tana first appears in Chapter 1, in which she stays at Border Mulan to help Eirika. However, she is held hostage instead of being able to help Eirika. Luckily, Eirika manages to rescue Tana.
Tana stays at Frelia's castle and does not appear again until A New Journey, the period between Chapters 8 and 9, where she greets Eirika and Ephraim at Frelia. She joins either Eirika or Ephraim in Chapter 9. In Eirika's route she flies over to Eirika and says that since Eirika, Ephraim, and Innes are all fighting, she will as well. She vows that she will not be left out. In Ephraim's route, she is captured by Grado troops yet again after trying to help Ephraim, but Ephraim rescues her. On both routes, she continues to fight with Eirika and Ephraim.

Personality and character
Tana is cheerful and friendly to all. She is very talkative, even when others are quiet, such as Marisa and sometimes Ephraim. She is quite sensitive, but she does do her best to support Eirika and Ephraim. She is often jealous of her older brother Innes, since he gets more attention than she does; Tana often fights with him, but they do love each other as siblings. Tana is willful and determined to do what she believes is right. She is friendly and often tells others not to call her "Princess".
Tana is the princess of Frelia, brother of Innes, and daughter of King Hayden. She is a good friend of Eirika and Ephraim, but it is unknown if she ever met Lyon. Her pegasus is named Achaeus. As the princess, she first met Eirika and Ephraim at a birthday celebration, but Ephraim does not seem to have paid much attention to her. She and Innes often fight, but they do seem to care for each other. Long ago, Tana lost the king's crown, and Hayden, of course, was furious. However, Innes found it and lied to Hayden, saying that he had taken it because he wanted to see what it looked like on his head. When she was a child, Syrene was like an older sister. In the present, Tana still admires Syrene. Although Tana is a princess, she is still a trained pegasus knight, as she trained alongside Vanessa and Syrene.
Tana, Winged Queen
Tana lived happily in the prosperous post-war Frelia. She flew to Renais often to visit her dear friend Eirika.
Eirika and Tana
Following the war, Tana and Eirika remained the best of friends. They visited one another when time permitted, and as they grew older, their children shared a bond of friendship as close as Eirika and Tana themselves did.
Ephraim and Tana
Once Renais was stable again, Ephraim and Tana were wed. Innes protested vocally, but when he saw how happy Tana was, he gave the marriage his blessings. Renais and Frelia are now bound by blood as well as friendship.
Cormag and Tana
Cormag returned to Grado to assist in the reconstruction of his country. Shortly after, he left to wander on his own. Tana spent years looking for him. In time, she found him and knighted him in Frelia's service.
