“You think I'm stupid!? The Balmung is not some stupid shield! And Prince Shannan is more handsome than you could ever hope to be!”
—Hermina to a Shannan impersonator.
Hermina (フェミナ Femina) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the substitute character for Fee if Erinys was not paired up. She is the sister of Hawk, and is supposedly a 'fangirl' of the deceased Erinys and Sigurd, prompting her to join the Silessean Pegasus Squad. Her portrait appears as unused data in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

While Hermina is able to hold well on her own, the character she replaces, Fee, will always hold distinct advantages over her. Fee will always possess the Pursuit skill, while the only skill Hermina will ever possess is that of Adept. As Pegasus Knights in Genealogy of the Holy War gain the Adept skill upon promotion, Hermina starting off with said skill is essentially redundant. However, Hermina is still a good unit that can be relied on.
In Chapter 6, Hermina may speak to Seliph, but nothing will result from the conversation.
In Chapter 8, if Hermina speaks to Hawk, she will gain one point of luck.
In Chapter 9, if Hermina visits one of the northwest villages, she may initiate a conversation with a fake Shannan, whereupon she will gain three points of defense.
In the Final Chapter, after Freege is captured, if Hermina is in love with either Seliph, Arthur, or Amid, she may speak to her lover in question. This will result in said lover gaining three points of skill.
Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.
