Yen'fay was a good man once, but he is my brother no more! If we meet on the battlefield, I would cut him down, same as any other imperial.
— Say'ri, on Yen'fay's betrayal

Yen'fay (Japanese: レンハ, Lenha) is an antagonist, and later playable character, in Fire Emblem Awakening. He was the prince of the nation of Chon'sin, on the continent of Valm, before the Valmese Empire led by Walhart conquered his nation, and forced him into their service, in exchange for sparing his sister Say'ri's life.

Main article: Yen'fay/Supports

As with the other characters obtained via the SpotPass paralogues, Yen'fay can only support with Robin, and Morgan, if a female Avatar marries Yen'fay. Despite his sister Say'ri being a playable character, he cannot support with her.


Yen'fay - Blade Legend
Yen'fay vanished like the mist, never to be seen again. Some say he returned to the Outrealm from whence he came, but none were able to witness the great swordsman's departure.

Yen'fay - Blade Legend & Robin (F) - High Deliverer
Many wrote of Avatar's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone — she loved her husband, Yen'fay, above all else.

Battle quotes

As the boss of Chapter 18

Yen'fay: I am Yen'fay of Chon'sin. That is all you need know before you die.

Against Chrom in Chapter 18

Chrom: General Yen'fay.
Yen'fay: Aye, that is my name. What would you have of me, Ylissean?
Chrom: I would ask why a famed swordmaster would sell his honour to Walhart.
Yen'fay: ...That is not your concern.
Chrom: ...Are you truly your sister's brother? She is a principled woman. Even knowing Walhart's strength, she has fought on valiantly. Are you so deluded as to genuinely consider her your enemy? Or are you simply afraid of your master?
Yen'fay: Afraid...? Yes, fear plays it's part, that I cannot deny.
Chrom: ...You admit it, then? You are craven!
Yen'fay: I did not say it was fear for my life. That my reasons exist is not cause to explain them all to strangers.
Chrom: If there's honour left in you, say it now. You could still join us...
Yen'fay: The bones have been thrown, lad. All that remains is to see where they fall.
Chrom: So be it.

If defeated by Chrom

Yen'fay: Hrrgh! Nngh...
Chrom: Whatever your reasons for joining them, there must have been another answer...
Yen'fay: Some quandaries in this world... have... no... proper answer...

Against Say'ri in Chapter 18

Say'ri: Brother. I won't ask you why... We are well beyond that point now. I will speak it plain: I cannot forgive you, and neither can I let you live.
Yen'fay: I've asked you for nothing, Sister, least of all your forgiveness.
Say'ri: But you will have my justice, like it or no! You, who stood by in silence while everyone around you suffered! While villages were razed and fields burned, you watched but said nothing... When Father and Mother were murdered — you said nothing! Nothing, before you ran to the arms of the one man responsible for all of it! Your silence was deafening. Maddening. Even now...have you nothing to say?!
Yen'fay: ...
Say'ri: Damn you, Yen'fay! Then I will make your sword answer for you! Draw your blade, and let it sing your final words!

If defeated by Say'ri

Yen'fay: Say'ri... You have grown... so strong...
Say'ri: ...Do... do you mock me? I have seen your best swordplay... that was not it. You went easy on me... but why?
Yen'fay: What I could not tell you in life... I say with my death...
Say'ri: But, Yen'fay...
Yen'fay: You have found... strong comrades... I no longer need fear for you... ...I die... in peace...
Say'ri: Yen'fay, wait! What do you mean? Why?! Don't leave me with more silence - not this time! Yen'fay!

Endgame: Grima quotes

...... ...Robin!
— Yen'fay
...Robin. 'Twas a life lived grandly. ...... But was it lived to its end? I trow you are yet meant for more...
— Yen'fay, if Robin sacrifices him/herself to kill Grima.
Say'ri, your strength has led this world back to light.
— Yen'fay, if Chrom lands the final blow on Grima.
I know how it feels to believe one's life is worth sacrificing. But was it not you who taught me the error of that thinking?
— Yen'fay, if Chrom lands the final blow on Grima, and if he is married to Robin.

Against Horace in Lost Bloodlines 2

Horace: Surrender now! You will receive no mercy while you still hold a weapon.
Yen'fay: Nay, sir. While far from perfect, I am no craven. Strike me down if you can!

Against Horace in Lost Bloodlines 3

Horace: I will not retreat. My traitor's life belongs to these—my comrades!
Yen'fay: Well spoken, sir. If only I did not feel the same...

Against Zephiel in Smash Brethren 2

Zephiel: Are you mad? Challenging me is tantamount to suicide.
Yen'fay: ...Alas, death is one thing I do not fear. I will earn this second chance of mine through battle. By defeating you!

Against Zephiel in Smash Brethren 3

Yen'fay: I was a ghost of a man when my comrades found me... But by striking down their foes, I can atone for my errors!
Zephiel: Atone? Aren't you a sad sight. A strong man does not lament the past. He makes the future!

Against Alm in Rogues & Redeemers 2

Alm: I won't yield this land to you. I don't care what it costs me!
Yen'fay: Then let us hope your determination can stop steel, boy.

Against Alm in Rogues & Redeemers 3

Yen'fay: Yield, Sir.
Alm: You'll have to kill me first. This is our land, not yours!
Yen'fay: Then let us see if your heart of fire can prevail over my heart of stone.

DLC battle quotes

What was stolen can be returned. Were that stolen life worked the same... But I prattle on. My name is Yen'fay of Chon'sin, and I will be the end of you.
— Yen'fay, in The Golden Gaffe.
So, you are the dogs responsible. No crime is graver then eating another man's lettuce. Aye, may the weight of your crimes crush you in your dying breath.
— Yen'fay, in EXPonential Growth.
Wherefore do you continue this fight? Will you press on, undying and unremembered, so long as fate bids it? Yes, 'tis a sad fate, the one we share. But for you, I shall end it.
— Yen'fay, in Infinite Regalia.
'Tis a dark fate indeed to end one's existence as something less than human... I haven't the power to restore your humanity, but I can at least grant you rest. Please, Say'ri, guide these poor souls to the eternal peace you have found.
— Yen'fay, in Death's Embrace.
According to Say'ri, the Yen'fay of her time met his death in a place like this. How did it feel to fall in this dreadful heat? What final thoughts crossed his mind? Perhaps fighting here now will bring me closer to the answers I seek...
— Yen'fay, in Five-Anna Firefight.
A man believed dead seemingly walks the earth still... Needless to say, knowledge such as this should remain hidden for all time. Lest the roster fall into the wrong hands, I must put an end to you here and now...
— Yen'fay, in Roster Rescue.
You stand before the mighty Yen'fay and yet you do not withdraw? Either you're skilled enough to be confident or too green to realize you're outmatched. Looking at you, I suspect it's the latter...but I shall have my answer soon enough!
— Yen'fay, in Summer Scramble.
Ah, volcanic hot springs... 'Tis truly one of nature's greatest gifts. Prized both in the present and the past, and likely just as beloved in the future... Perhaps I shall indulge in a bath myself. But first, there is work to be done...
— Yen'fay, in Hot-Spring Scramble.
