People die from much lesser things you know. It's no laughing matter! What if you scare me and I trip and fall and cut my head open? What then?!
— Yarne, to Chrom

Yarne (Japanese: シャンブレー Chambray) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem Awakening. He is the timid son of Panne and a member of the Taguel race.

Fire Emblem Awakening


Yarne is one of three possible Taguel appearing in Awakening; the other two are his mother, Panne, and his possible sibling Morgan, if Robin marries Panne.

Like the other child characters Yarne traveled to the past with Lucina and was separated upon arrival. Finding himself alone and greatly afraid for his life, he eventually ends up working with the Stonewall Knights, a mercenary group. During Paralogue 13 he enters battle with the Stonewall Knights against a rival group known as the Riders of Dawn. The battle can play out several ways depending on the Robin's choices, Robin can choose to align with the Stonewall Knights, the Riders of Dawn, or choose to fight both groups, thus aligning with neither. During the battle Yarne is approached by either Panne or Chrom who convinces him to join the Shepherds.

Personality and character

Yarne both prides and is tortured by his status as a Taguel. As the last known Taguel in existence, aside from his mother, who is deceased in the future he arrived from, he is terrified to the point of paranoia of death. His paranoia sometimes leads to cowardice, which disappoints his mother, Panne. As a result of his paranoia he constantly checks his own physical condition.[1] He also will instinctively make up, obviously false, excuses to avoid battle.[2] He sometimes flees fights, to the great annoyance of his allies.[3] Yarne is not oblivious to his behavior and feels embarrassed about it at times.[4] Yarne is also worried about being abandoned by his father in particular; his father was killed in battle after promising to return. In the present, this leads to him being paranoid of his father abandoning Panne, resulting in his birth never occuring.

Upon their initial meeting in Paralogue 13, Panne is disappointed and angered that Yarne would hide behind the Stonewall Knights, a band of common Human thugs, for survival.[5] Later after Panne has calmed down and come to an understanding that his fear comes from being the last Taguel, the two discuss that neither of them know what a traditional Taguel family is like, as both of them had lost their parents before they were of age to remember.[6] The two initially begin by imitating human traditions, such as singing lullabys, but find this awkward.[7] They both agree that imitating humans is not the path to reviving Taguel culture and decide to make their own new traditions based on what their hearts tell them to do.


Main article: Yarne/Supports


Yarne, Timid Taguel (single ending)
Yarne traveled the world in search of a safer haven, a journey that was ironically fraught with danger. Nevertheless, he is said to have beaten his fears and lived to a ripe old age.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Robin, High Deliverer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Yarne, above all else.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Lucina, Foreseer
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger—especially since Lucina was quick to dash to the rescue of every stranger.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Kjelle, Fair Fighter
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger—especially as Kjelle insisted on facing every foe to better herself as a warrior.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Cynthia, Hero Chaser
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger—especially as Cynthia wouldn't stop challenging brigands in the name of justice.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Severa, Secret Dreamer
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger—especially as Severa continued to take on dangerous jobs to make ends meet.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Morgan, Gift from Afar
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done. While Morgan's memory never returned, she didn't really seem to miss it, and the two lived out their days happily.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Noire, Miss Personality
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger...despite Noire's best attempts to steer them out of trouble.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Nah, Little Miss
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done. While Nah endeavored to steer them clear of trouble, they soon realized the best place was Ylisse, where their journey began.

  • As with the other children characters of Awakening, Yarne's birthday matches the Japanese release date of a Fire Emblem series game: March 14th was the release date of Fire Emblem Gaiden in 1992.
  • Yarne is the only one of the children characters who inherits a gender-specific class tree in place of a gender-neutral class tree from his mother. All other class tree swaps on children characters involve a gender-specific class on the parent, basically the reverse of what Yarne does. It is unknown why Yarne inherits the Barbarian tree in place of the Wyvern Rider tree.
  • Yarne shares his English voice actor with Robin (Male 3), Reinhardt, Legion, Seth, and Slayde.

  1. "...Pulse? Check. ...Arms? Check. ...Legs? Check! Whew! Looks like I'm all here. Ugh. Why do I keep fighting if I'm going to be such a coward about it?!" — Yarne in his support conversation with Lucina, Fire Emblem Awakening
  2. "Yarne: Yeaah, I'd love to go, but my, uh... My stomach is just killing me!
    Laurent: Then why are you clutching your head?
    Yarne: I meant head!
    Laurent: If you're going to malinger, put some effort into it. Now come along.
    " — Yarne to Laurent in a support conversation, Fire Emblem Awakening
  3. "Severa: Don't you "what's wrong" me! What do you call that last battle?! We'd only been on the field a minute when you turned tail and ran!
    Yarne: N-not true! I saw it through to the end! ...Er, from a safe distance.
    Severa: Pah! What a lame excuse!
    Yarne: Look, it's just... It's not like you really needed me there. Our foe was way weaker than us.
    " — Yarne to Severa, Fire Emblem Awakening
  4. "...Oh, what am I doing?! Gods, why not just ask her to babysit you, you big coward?! This is a new low, even for me..." — Yarne in a support conversation with Lucina, Fire Emblem Awakening
  5. "Yarne: Huh? H-hey, I didn't have a choice in the matter! You were nowhere to be found, and roaming around alone is a recipe for...extinction. I figured I'd be safe if I took up with some strong allies, and so I... Wait, are you angry? Because you look kind of ang—
    Panne: OF COURSE I AM ANGRY! No son of mine will survive by taking the path of the coward! You're coming with me. I'm going to teach you some taguel pride, starting right now!
    " — Yarne and Panne, Fire Emblem Awakening
  6. "Yarne: The mother in my future died when I was still young. Before I could remember. I don't know what it's like to...have a mother. Especially a taguel mother.
    Panne:' Neither do I. I have no idea how taguel mothers and children interact with each other. My friends and kin were taken from me by humans when I was still an infant.
    Yarne: have no idea how you're supposed to act either?
    Panne: I do not, but does it matter? We can forge a new tradition of what it means to be a taguel mother and son.
    " — Yarne and Panne, Fire Emblem Awakening
  7. "Panne: Sleep tonight and good night. ♪ You are thy mother's delight. ♪
    Yarne: Erm, Mother? I know you're just trying to imitate human mothers, but...I don't think it's working.
    Panne: Well, that's a relief. I was feeling very foolish. I thought perhaps human customs might be similar enough to work for taguel. But it seems perhaps I was mistaken...
