“Yes, indeed. This war has gone on long enough. Prince Jamke, you're our only hope. Do your best to persuade the king to end this war.”
Adean (エーディン, Ēdin, also known as Aideen, Edain or Edin in fan translations) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is a princess of Jungby, the daughter of Lord Ring, the younger sister of Briggid, and older half-sister of Andorey. The game's events start off with her being taken away by Prince Gandolf after Jungby is conquered by Verdane troops. Sigurd, being an old friend of Adean, will embark on a mission to rescue her. She is freed in Chapter 1 by Prince Jamke with Dew, and is then promptly placed under the player's. If paired up, Adean will be the mother of Lester and Lana.
After the Battle of Belhalla, Adean is known to flee to Isaach. In Isaach, she becomes an abbess and not only raises her two children, but acts as a surrogate mother to the refugee children who had fled with Shanan and Oifey, including Seliph, Delmud/Tristan, Larcei/Radney and Ulster/Roddlevan.

Being of the Lena Archetype, Adean makes an extremely competent healer unit. However, as a result of possessing no skills, she will, indefinitely, struggle with combat. It is recommended for her to purchase the Libro staff from Chapter 2 as soon as possible, which will enhance her effectiveness as a healer. This is due to the fact that her movement range is low, which will limit her usefulness to healing injured allies in time. Despite being of the Priest class, Adean has a decent Strength growth of 20%.
If the player decides to pair Adean with a possible suitor, he/she will have to bear in mind that while Lana will be relatively good regardless of the identity of her father, Lester can easily fall to destitution, should he be unable to wield any decent weapons in the beginning.
- In order to ensure that Lester will start out well, it is highly recommended to pair Adean with either Midayle or Jamke and make them fall in love by Chapter 4. This will result in her lover in question being able to receive the Brave Bow from her, a weapon which will eventually be passed on to Lester.
- If the player prefers to ensure the stability of Lana's usability, Adean should thus be paired with either Azel or Claud, as this will result in her receiving the highly-acclaimed Return Staff. Furthermore, Lana will benefit from the high Magic if fathered by Azel, or the ability to wield a wider range of staves, should her dad be Claud.
