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

As expected from a prepromote joining your army during the last few chapters, Vaida comes with amazing base stats, with her rather low speed and resistance stats as well as her terrible Aid and mediocre avoid being the only flaws to criticize (aside from her poor availability of course). Her base HP, strength and defense on the other hand can most likely keep up with your most durable units, while flying movement gives her an additional mobility advantage over them. She also comes with A-weapon-ranks in both swords and lances, both weapon types offering her a powerful arsenal she can most likely use without minding weapon weight due to her high constitution. Considering the following chapters will throw groups of units with high strength and durability like Generals and Wyvern Riders at you, a unit like Vaida with high movement who can also take multiple attacks while doing decent damage back is a well-welcomed addition to your army.

While her statspread might suggest that she cannot deal well with magic wielding units, her huge pool of hitpoints actually allows her to face some mages if you want her to, especially if her resistance gets further increased by using a Pure Water or Barrier Staff. Otherwise she can also avoid most magic users during Sands of Time and Victory or Death regardless. Her speed is a bigger issue, since it also affects her combat against enemies with physical attacks. While it is high enough to avoid getting doubled by most enemies and double the slower ones, Vaida will usually lack the speed to double bosses or some stronger enemies, and she can get doubled by some enemies during the final chapter Light. Having a high weapon level helps her out in that regard, since she can always equip brave weapons to get an additional hit on her opponents to maximize her damage output or oneround them.

Like other fliers, Vaida can move freely around the map, but receives additional damage from bows. However, thanks to her high defense stat, she doesn't mind the effective damage from bows too much. Instead, her high constitution and therefore low Aid troubles her, making Vaida a very bad ferry unit compared to your other fliers. Since her combat is good, this usually isn't much of an issue, but it should be kept in mind if you need to decide between her and one of your trained fliers for a deployment slot.

Personality and character

Vaida is arrogant, brash, and unsympathetic. She shows no concern for those arround her, even when Heath volunteers to follow her to her death or when Harken states his admiration and respect for her.

Vaida is quick tempered and belligerent—challenging both Karla and Wallace to a duel during their support conversations. During her supports with Karla, Vaida becomes infuriated when Karla seemingly disrespects her strength as a fighter and her rank as a wyvern general of Bern. Vaida quickly challenges Karla to a duel after feeling insulted and mocked. During her supports with Wallace, Vaida is eager to engage in a duel with the general and even taunts Wallace by calling him a coward after he refuses. When meeting Dorcas for the first time in person, her first instinct is to ask him whether he is looking for a beating.

She is coarse when addressing others, whether it be referring to Canas as "worm-bait", describing Wallace as a "shiny little teapot", or suggesting that Hector's armor may have "rusted his brain". During her recruitment conversations, Vaida addresses Eliwood/Hector as "boy" and describes his army as his "little playmates".

Vaida seems to find pleasure in tormenting others—going so far as to take Canas's prized tome and feed it to her wyvern Umbriel for entertainment.

Despite her callous demeanor, Vaida shows undying loyalty to Bern and prince Zephiel. This loyalty is most evident when she joins Eliwood's army purely because he saved prince Zephiel from assassination and felt it neccesarry to repay her debt. In a conversation with Heath, Vaida asserts that her top priority is the safety of Zephiel and the success of Bern and that she would gladly give her life in order to uphold these endeavors.

Vaida, Flying Fang
Some rumors say that Vaida died at the hands of Bern forces. Others say she now serves Bern's Prince Zephiel.

Heath and Vaida
After paying her debt to Eliwood, Vaida returned to Bern. Though no longer an official knight, she sought to aid the prince from the shadows. Heath followed her home to Bern to support her.

Harken and Vaida
Though both desired to be together, they could not bring themselves to end their service to their lords, and so they parted ways. That was the last time Harken ever heard Vaida's voice.


Death quote

I'm... not well... ...... Oh, Prince... Zephiel...
— Vaida

Battle quotes

Ha ha... Such a pleasant expression. That settles it. I'll start with you.
— Vaida as a boss in Chapter 24 in Eliwood's Tale or Chapter 26 in Hector's Tale
Prepare yourself, Heath!! You were a novice when you reneged on your vows. Have you improved much since you turned your coat?
— Vaida as a boss, if Heath battles her in Chapter 24 in Eliwood's Tale or Chapter 26 in Hector's Tale
What are you worried about? With me here, we can't lose!
— In the final chapter.
