Yelena (Japanese: ユアナ Yuana) is the queen of Aytolis and an unplayable character originating from Fire Emblem Warriors. She is the mother of Lianna and Rowan. She began ruling Aytolis due to the king, her husband, passing away from illness.
Yelena appears at the start of the game when Aytolis is attacked by monsters. Lianna, Rowan, and Darios are unfortunately forced to leave her behind to escape with their lives and the Shield of Flame. Yelena's ultimate fate is unknown at the time, though her survival is thought unlikely.
When Lianna and Rowan eventually return to retake Aytolis, they find that Yelena has survived, but king Oscar plans to sacrifice her to revive Velezark. Oskar's plan is thwarted and Yelena is rescued by the twins. Yelena is then sent to the rear lines to recover for the rest of the battle.
After the defeat of Velezark and the restoration of peace to the continent, Yelena appears in the ending to perform a crowning ceremony for Lianna and Rowan among the ruins of castle Aytolis.
Personality and character
Yelena is a kind and just ruler who cares for both her children. The fact that both her children are disinterested in inheriting their birthright, Aytolis, worries her.
- Yelena is one of only three parents of a Fire Emblem lord to appear onscreen and survive to the end of the game, the others being Eliwood and Eleanora.
