“You know that Silessean royalty claims direct lineage with the Wind God Forseti. That means you are the only one capable of succession. Only you can preserve the Silessean lineage. And the people wish it of you as well. Lewyn, the queen was in tears when I left. Please... Sniff... just come back with me.”
—Erinys in Genealogy of the Holy War.
Erinys (フュリー Fyurī, translated Ferry in the Japanese version, Fury in the Super Tactics Book, and Erin in fan translation) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is one of the Four Angelic Knights of Silesse, and is the younger sister of the squad's captain, Annand. Both Erinys and her sister are childhood friends and retainers to the wayward Prince Lewyn of Silesse. She leads a squad towards Sigurd's army while searching for Lewyn, having been deceived that Lewyn had been kidnapped by Sigurd.
Erinys is the only playable female character in Sigurd's tale who is not of noble heritage or holy crusader descent. When paired up, Erinys's children will be Fee and Ced. According to the events of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, she is canonically wed to Lewyn.
After the Battle of Belhalla, Erinys will be crowned queen of Silesse after Rahna's death. She reigns as best she can while awaiting her husband's return to the country, but will eventually succumb to an unknown illness.
Erinys sports a sweet, polite and honest personality, also appearing oblivious towards her suitors. This can be seen when she is paired up with Lewyn, when he mentions that he feels that she is better looking than her sister is. This essentially means that Lewyn is in love with her, but Erinys appears to be rather oblivious to his affections, and only realises this very fact when he confesses directly to her.
In the second generation of Genealogy of the Holy War, Ced will mention that Fee resembles her mother, suggesting that Erinys "[never] could turn a blind eye when somebody was in trouble."

Erinys appears in Chapter 2 with a battlion of her own soldiers near the castle of Agusty, searching for leads to Prince Lewyn's whereabouts. Chagall, the king of Agustria, lies to her, telling her Lewyn has been captured by the Grannvale army and faces execution. This leads to Erinys immediately leading her squadron towards the direction of Sigurd's army in a bid to rescue Lewyn, expressing no hesitation to attack any Grannvale soldier she comes across.
However, Erinys can be recruited into Sigurd's army by speaking to her with Lewyn, in which he chastises her for her foolishness in putting her trust into Chagall. It is recommended to transfer Finn's Brave Lance over to her inventory when Chapter 3 is reaching its closure, as he will leave for Leonster at the beginning of the preceding chapter.
Erinys is also the only flying unit in the first generation, making her extremely useful for covering long distances at one turn. She can also be used to attract the attention of Reptor's army, forcing them to make their move as early as possible.
Erinys is best paired up with either Lewyn or Claud. Claud will be able to pass the Valkyrie Staff down onto Ced, alongside drastically increasing his Resistance growth, and will allow Fee to use B-level staves after promoting to Falcon Knight. Lewyn, on the other hand, will pass the Forseti down onto Ced, alongside blessing him with one go.
In Chapter 2, if Lewyn speaks to Erinys, he can recruit her.
In Chapter 2, Erinys may speak to Sigurd, but nothing will result of it.
In Chapter 4, before Thove Castle is captured, if neither Sylvia, Lewyn, nor Erinys has a lover, position Sylvia adjacent to Erinys. This will trigger the occurrence of a conversation, in which Sylvia will gain 50 love points with Lewyn, and Erinys gaining 25 love points with him.
In Chapter 4, if neither Erinys nor Lewyn has a lover, after Silesse Castle is captured, Lewyn may speak to Erinys, resulting in them falling in love instantly.
