“I, Fiona, Steward of Marado, do gladly swear allegiance to your Liberation Army. I and my men bind ourselves to your fate. Use my army as best you see fit.”
—Fiona to Micaiah in Raise the Standard in Radiant Dawn
Fiona (フリーダ Furīda, Frieda in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. She is the daughter of Lanvega, one of Daein's Great Four Riders. She is also the ruler of the independent Marado territory in Daein.
After The Mad King's War ended and her father died, Fiona continued his legacy and sought to maintain her country's safety. Initially, she sides with the Begnion Occupational Army, though Jarod does not trust her. After seeing the Begnion Occupational Army hold civilians as hostages to make the Dawn Brigade surrender, Fiona defects and joins Micaiah's side. From this point on, she aids Micaiah in the liberation of Daein and remains as one of her soldiers during the war against the Laguz Alliance. Following this, she joins the heroes in their mission to defeat Ashera.
After the war, Fiona returns to Marado and continues to watch over her beloved people, protecting them until the autumn of her years.
While Fiona is young, she is a mature, level-headed and considerate leader, making wise choices to protect her people no matter the cost. She is a true warrior at heart who believes in Micaiah's cause and takes pride in fighting as a knight of Daein. She is an honorable knight and opposes cruelty towards civilians, which lead her to betray the Begnion Occupational Army.

Fiona has incredible growths. Between her, Titania, Oscar, and Geoffrey, Fiona is able to survive more hits (both physical and magical), and is more likely to attack twice in a single round. However, despite her unrivaled potential, she arrives at a low level with absolutely pitiful base stats. But if the player is willing to invest their early bonus experience in her and she gets some lucky boosts, she can overcome her unfortunate start. Even then, she can only be deployed in two chapters in Part 1 and is stuck with the pressing Dawn Brigade chapters of Part 3, so raising Fiona to her true potential is much easier said than done.
“Lady Micaiah... Daein's light...I give you... everything...”
