Eda (エダ) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is a twenty-one year old Dragon Knight from Thracia and the younger sister of Dean. She aids her brother in protecting Linoan under the orders of Arion. She is shown to be reckless, as seen when she asks Dean if she may derange the enemy lines by herself. She also informs Linoan about the sacrifices that Areone has made to protect her.

Despite coming with a great weapon rank, Eda's strength comes from her flying utility in outdoor chapters. This gives her a niche of ferrying around less mobile units and visiting faraway villages if warp uses are being used elsewhere. Outside this niche, her combat while mounted is decent as her B rank in lances enables her to use every lance in the game at base aside from the master lance. However, like all mounted units, she must dismount indoors in which she must deal with lowered stats and her D rank in swords. In all, her combat is superfluous compared to her flying utility.

“I promise I'll do better next time!”
—Eda's escape quote
Dean: The full-scale attack has begun... Well, what do we do, Glade?
Glade: We're far outnumbered. Our defeat will only be a matter of time.
Eda: Shall I go derange the enemy lines? It should buy some time for us.
Dean: No, that won't do. The enemies have ballistas. You'll just be a perfect target if you go out alone. The basics of fighting from dragon-back are to run in for a surprise hit, and then immediately retreat. You must never rush, Eda.
Eda: Yes, my brother.
Glade: I will send out my knights.
Dean: Will that be enough? The mercenaries all fled.
Glade: Hm... What about Prince Shanan? If he is a direct descendant of the Sword Saint Odo, he must have power far greater than ours. Why does he refuse to help?
Dean: Oh...him. He apparently has no interest in battles in lower places.
Glade: Hmph, and he spends his time playing with the women, eh? ...We have no choice. We will have to fight on our own.
Dean: Be careful. This is only the beginning. ...The worst still has yet to come.
Glade: I know.
Eda: Lady Linoan, the attack has begun.
Linoan: The Empire's full-scale attack... What is Lord Leaf doing?
Eda: The prince is having a meeting with the other commanders.
Linoan: I see... Is Dean with them?
Eda: Dean is watching the south gate because he doesn't feel comfortable at meetings... My brother can be difficult at times.
Linoan: No, I would never have survived without him. After my father was killed, our mansion was taken away, and for two years I was unable to even go outdoors freely. The cruel surrogate would constantly threaten me to tell him where the prince was. The thought of that abuse still sends shivers down my spine... But then...Dean rescued me from that nightmare. He protected me from assassins from the Empire, and always cheered me up when I was about to break down. He always laughed it off, but I was sure he was a well-known mercenary. I never knew he working under Lord Arion...
Eda: Prince Arion knew about the danger Tahra was in, so he secretly ordered my brother to rescue you. Dean was so pleased at the trust the prince was putting in him that he abandoned the army to fulfill the prince's commands.
Linoan: Lord Arion...went through that much...?
Eda: He couldn't leave the country, but then again, he couldn't let you, his fiancee, die... I can only imagine how troubled he was. Anyway, please don't worry, Lady Linoan. Your kindness has not gone unnoticed by Dain and Noba. You must believe in our victory. Now, I must go out and fight as well!
