Fiona (フリーダ, Furīda lit. Frida in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. She is the daughter of Lanvega, who was one of Daein's Great Four Riders. She is the ruler of the independent Marado territory in Daein. At first, she sides with the Begnion Occupational Army, but later joins the Daein Liberation Army after seeing what kind of monstrous acts the Occupation Army does to her people. After the last battle, because she is the lady of Marado, she watched over her beloved people and would protect them until the autumn of her years.

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.
If you intend to utilize Fiona, make sure you use her in part 1 endgame. Give her a forged iron lance with 2 mt and as much wt as possible. After killing all the other threats, or leaving a few units to protect Fiona, make her attack the first priest holding a physic staff repeatedly. Her abysmal damage and speed works to her advantage by allowing her to safely gain exp.
“Lady Micaiah... Daein's light...I give you... everything...”
