“And I am Aimee, a vendor of...various goods. I have a wide variety of items for sale. I hope you'll stop by soon.”
—Aimee, introducing herself to Ike in Path of Radiance
Aimee (ララベル Larabel in the Japanese versions and the American version of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon) is a non-playable recurring character from the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. She usually appears as the item shopkeeper.
In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Aimee has a storyline role as a member of the Merchant Convoy, which travels with the Greil Mercenaries. In the Base Conversations across both games, she is shown to be in love with Ike and does not try to hide this, being very open about it. She frequently makes advances on Ike, but he always rejects her. She also dislikes Soren, but seems to slightly warm up to him after he tells her about the types of foods that Ike likes so that she can cook for him.
Alongside Ilyana and Kurthnaga, she appears as an ally unit in Chapter 3 of Radiant Dawn. In Part 3 Chapter 2, she gives the Silver Card to Soren as a temporary gift after he compliments her in hopes of earning a chance to buy items at a lower price. In Part 4 Chapter 1, she gives Rexcalibur to Ike so that he can give it to Soren, with her excuse being that she is attempting to get Ike's attention.
“What carelessness on my part! I'm injured. Go on without me. I don't want to be a burden. No, no I insist. I'll get away somehow. Until we meet again!”
—Aimee's Retreat quote in Radiant Dawn Part 1, Chapter 3.
- In previous American localizations that she appeared in she was also named Aimee, her appearing as Larabel could be seen as a translation oversight.
- While technically the same character, her appearance varies between games somewhat. The most notable being that she has black hair in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
- In Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, the shopkeeper of the accessory shop Carabia, appears to be based on Aimee.
