“W-Well, what was I supposed to do? All those bees came flying out at me! I was so frightened...”
—Florina to Lyn in a support conversation
Florina (romanized as Flolina in the Fire Emblem Museum) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. She is the younger sister of Fiora and Farina as well as a close friend of Lyn. Her pegasus steed is named Huey.
Florina is a Pegasus Knight-in-training from Ilia. One time when she was in Sacae, she fell off her pegasus and landed in a tree. She was found by Lyn caught in the tree when she was being attacked by a swarm of bees. Lyn helped her down, and the two became fast friends.
In Lyn's Story, Florina begins a search for Lyn after she learns about her departure for Caelin. She accidentally lands Huey on Migal, the leader of a band of Ganelon Bandits. They are about to capture her when Lyn and her party rescue her. She joins up with Lyn and goes with her to Caelin. After Lundgren's defeat, Florina is made a knight of Caelin.
In Eliwood's Story, Florina joins the army alongside Lyn when Eliwood aids them in retaking Caelin. In her default ending, she returns to Ilia and becomes a full-fledged Pegasus Knight. Her alternate endings include retiring to the Sacaen plains with Lyn or marrying Hector and living with him in Ostia, which would make her the mother of Lilina.
Florina is very shy around the other characters, especially men and archers. In her support conversations with Serra, it is noted she is reserved even when talking to women. Despite her general disposition, she is a very different person when she is at a festival and "starts coming out of her shell", as revealed in her supports with Farina. It is also revealed she used to cry herself to sleep every night. Farina could also make her cry at every practice. She hopes to become like Fiora, whom she really loves. Florina realizes that she will never become her own person if she keeps relying on Fiora to protect her. Despite her general fear of most men, she seems to have a small crush on Hector after he saves her from falling. However, she has trouble thanking him for it because of her timidness.
Throughout the game there are several inconsistencies in the information given during various support conversations about her Pegasus due to errors in the English translation process.
Although it is Huey who lands on Migal, Florina responds to Migal when he speaks of selling the pegasus, "Don't you touch her!". Huey is also called a mare (female horse) in Florina's C support with Nino. These are translation errors of the English script writers since Hurt is male in the Japanese version.

While flying movement and early jointime in all story modes already gives her great utility, Florina's usefulness is greatly determined by whether the player chooses to play Lyn's Story or if they decide to skip it.
During Lyn's Story, Florina can gain enough experience for multiple level-ups, which allows her to take advantage of her decent strength and speed growths. This way she can start contributing in combat right after joining in Hector's or Eliwood's Story, and it gives her the opportunity to promote before reaching the Dread Isle. Thus she can start off as a decent flier without having much trouble, and grow into one of your best mounted units during mid- and lategame.
If Lyn's Story is skipped, Florina will join at level 3 with slightly higher stats compared to her level 1 bases, but will usually be a lot weaker than she would coming from Lyn's Story. In this case, her relatively low base strength and defensive stats combined with her low constitution makes it hard for her to win a lot of fights on higher difficulties as Hector Hard Mode, so she might have trouble getting enough experience to grow. Despite that, she can still be quite useful by carrying your slower infantry units towards their destination point, even if you decide that training her at this point causes more trouble than it's worth.
Her Resistance is solid, despite being lower than Fiora's and Farina's Resistance stats, which proves to be useful when fighting against lategame mages with long range tomes and status staffs. However, Florina has very low Defense and HP growths, so archers can easily take her down or leave her vulnerable to the next enemy attack, especially before promotion. Her Constitution is too low to effectively use heavier lances (even after a Body Ring, even though it will be useful), but after Promotion she can use swords without suffering from the heavy speed penalties of lances.
She can be a fantastic counter to Wyvern Lords, should she get a C-rank in swords, due to the Wyrmslayer's extremely low weight, which allows her to wield it without speed penalties. It's the most powerful of the 4 weapons she can wield without a speed penalty, as the others have very low might, where as the Wyrmslayer's might is quite high, at 10, or 20 (30 in the Japanese version), should she be fighting a Dragon. As a flier, she can easily reach them, and possibly triangle attack, should her sisters be nearby.

Defeat quote in Lyn's storyEdit
Florina: Lyn, I'm sorry. I... I can't go on...
Lyn: Tactician! Take care of her! Get her to safety!
Florina: I'm... I'm sorry.
“I-I'm sorry.....I'm always....such trouble...”
—Florina's Death Quote
At the start of Chapter 16Edit
Florina: Uh...Tactician... Um... It's me... Florina. Um...I'm... I'm over here.
Final Chapter: Light quoteEdit
“I… I… I'll do my best!”
—Florina in the final chapter
Florina and her two sisters, Farina and Fiora, are able to perform a special attack known as a Triangle Attack if positioned correctly before engaging in combat. The picture on the right shows you how to do it:
The three sisters do not have to be in that exact position. As long as all of them are adjacent to the enemy, the Triangle Attack will occur. This attack has 100% accuracy and a 100% critical chance, making it very useful against bosses that the player is having a hard time killing. Note that the triangle attack does not modify the Mt of the attack; it only changes the accuracy and critical hit chance. Therefore, it is most effective to initiate the attack with the sister that has the highest Strength stat. Be careful, as no matter what speed the player has, she will only perform the triangle attack once. In addition, you may only perform a triangle attack if you initiate the battle; it will not occur when counterattacking enemies. The attacking character will also say something to the other two, and a special attacking animation featuring all three of the sisters will play.
- Florina - Pegasus Knight (Default)
After Lyn abdicated rule of Caelin, Florina returned to Ilia. She remained shy, but this shyness has made her strong within.
- Florina and Lyn
When her grandfather died, Lyn asked that Caelin be taken under Ostian protection. She set out for Sacae with her friend Florina. Though Florina returned to Ilia, their friendship lasted forever.
- Florina and Hector
Hector succeeded his brother as the marquess of Ostia, but the pain of his brother’s death weighed heavily on him. His beloved Florina gave him comfort and helped him become an enlightened leader.
Florina is illustrated in the trading card game with the following cards:
Florina is a Romanian girl's name and a combination of Latin word "Fiore", which means "Flower" and the diminutive suffix "-ina" which means "Little", and can be translated as "Little Flower". It also shows a connection to Lilina, who's name means "Little Lily", as one of her three possible mothers, if she marries Hector.
The name also has origins in geography; Florina is a prefecture in northwestern Greece, along the Macedonian border.
'Huey' is a nickname for 'Hugh,' a Germanic name which means 'heart, mind or spirit'.
"Huey" is also the nickname of the popular UH-1 Iroquois helicopter used by the U.S. military.
- Florina lands Huey on two people (Migal and Hector) during the events of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.
- Florina is notable for having only one male support option in Hector.
