“I will not rest until every woman in the realm swoons at just hearing my name!”
—Inigo talking to his father.
Inigo (アズール, Azūru, Azur in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Awakening. He is the son of Olivia, and a character from the future. He can be the brother of Lucina or Morgan, depending on if Olivia marries Chrom or the Male Avatar. Otherwise, he will be an only child. His birthday is on August 7th. His English voice is provided by Liam O'Brien and his Japanese voice by Ryūichi Kijima.
In the future, Inigo was shy, much like his mother, Olivia. However, Olivia wished to help him overcome his shyness by having him talk to girls. Unfortunately, this made him a womanizer in the long run. Olivia also trained Inigo to dance and fueled his desire to become a dancer himself. Olivia began teaching Inigo her favorite dance but was killed after only teaching him half of the it. Inigo received Olivia's wedding ring and wore it from then on. Inigo helped to battle the Risen while furthering his dancing skill by improvising the ending. He often would practice in front of her grave and wondered what she would think about the dance. Inigo soon joined Lucina and the other children to return to the past to prevent the ruinous future.
In his Paralogue, Inigo tirelessly fought off bandits to protect a local village near the Great Gate, or more specifically, a local village girl. Chrom's army arrives to deal with the bandits and encounter Inigo. Olivia manages to catch up to him and Inigo is flustered by his mother's sudden appearance. He leaves to return to killing the bandits in hopes of scoring a date from the village girl from earlier. After defeating all the bandits, Inigo approaches his mother and tries introducing himself, but finds himself unable to do so, so he shows Olivia his ring: the same ring she is wearing. Since returning from the future, Inigo had been searching for his mother by locating as many dancers as he could until he finally found her. Inigo tells her that he can dance too but when Olivia asks him to show her, he becomes flustered and asks his mother to dance instead, which she reciprocates his earlier feeling. Inigo prepares to head back to the village for "tea-time" but Chrom tells him to either come with them or get left behind. With no choice, Inigo abandons his original intention and joins Chrom's army.
After the war, Inigo traveled the world, solving other people's problems as a mercenary or entertaining others by dancing. Many people were grateful for his services.
In Inigo's support with Olivia, Olivia overhears that Inigo has been seen, on rare occasions by other members of the army, dancing in a secluded place in the middle of the night. Inigo is embarrassed by this and grows uncomfortable as Olivia tries her best to see him dance. Finally Olivia manages to see him practicing her favorite dance, but with a different ending. Inigo tells her that this was the last dance she taught him, but was only half taught because she died before he could learn the rest. Olivia loved Inigo's ending and promises to teach him the final part. Inigo's support with his father, his father is upset with Inigo's priorities with women over saving the future. Inigo then reveals that he could not show weakness and just kept fighting with a smile on his face while acting like nothing was wrong, even though both his mother and father were dead. He tells him that he wants to make a future where everyone can smile. The two later reconcile after the fight and his father tells Inigo to come and talk to him for help rather than shouldering his burden all by himself.
The Future PastEdit
In an alternate future, where Grima manages to take over the land, Inigo is seen with Owain, Yarne, and Brady, running from a swarm of Risen that has began to chase them. Owain manages to persuade Yarne and Brady to run ahead to deliver the Gemstones to Lucina. Inigo stays behind with Owain and cuts the bridge to prevent the Risen from crossing. If all the children manage to survive at the end of the battle, Inigo and Owain will meet up with Brady and Yarne and safely return to Ylisse with the Gemstones in tow.
Half a year later, Inigo has stopped his womanizing habits for the most part and has begun dancing for a living with Brady accompanying him as his musician.
Inigo originally was as shy and withdrawn as his mother. However due to the advice she gave him to talk to girls, he became outgoing and likes to socialize. Unfortunately this also causes Inigo to flirt with every girl he comes across, though most end up slapping and rejecting him. He has a tendency to cry and become extremely depressed when nothing goes the way he planned. Inigo dreams of becoming a dancer much like his mother, but is embarrassed to do so, even in front of Olivia.

Inigo's starting class is Mercenary, which gives him the skill Armsthrift right away. His high luck growth ensures this won't be a wasted skill slot. Inigo can learn the skill Sol for some self preservation from the Hero class. Alternately, he can learn the skill Bowbreaker from the Bow Knight class. Inigo does better as a Hero than a Bow Knight due to having more balanced stats as a Hero. However, he shouldn't be left in either class without some skills from his other classes.
Olivia: As the only dancer in the game, she is the only one who can pass down the skill Luck +4 to her son. This gives Armsthrift even more use immediately upon recruitment. However, Olivia has access to other skills that are more favorable in the long run to Inigo, namely Galeforce. Olivia has a female only class: Pegasus Knight. Therefore, Inigo gains access to the Barbarian class. This gives him access to some useful skills such as Despoil (high luck), Gamble, and Counter. Finally, the dancing duo share the Myrmidon class. Inigo can make use of the skills Vantage, Astra, and Lethality. Since Inigo gains nice skill, speed, and luck growths from Olivia, the skill Lethality should activate a good amount of times. Pair Olivia up with a father with high skill growths such as Virion or Chrom to really make Lethality activate often.
Chrom: Chrom is the father that most closely mirrors Olivia's growths. This way, Inigo's skill, speed, and luck stats will be sky high. As a Lord, Chrom will pass down Rightful King. This makes skills such as Astra, Luna, Sol, Lethality, and Aegis activate nearly all the time. Additionally, Chrom passes down the Cavalier class. Discipline could be used to raise weapon ranks quickly, but time shouldn't be spent in this class just for that one skill which is useless in the long run. However, the skills Aegis, Luna, and Dual Guard+ can be learned by Inigo to increase his durability and damage output, especially coupled with Rightful King. Finally, Chrom passes down the Archer class. Since the Bow Knight class is repeated, Hit Rate +20 is the most useful skill from this class. However, Inigo's high skill rate from his parents will mean he will have always have a high hit rate so that's not as important. Just remember, when trying to have Chrom and Olivia S Support, Chrom shouldn't have any supports with any other possible wives before starting Chapter 11.
Avatar: The growth rates are dependent on the Avatar's asset and flaw. As with Morgan, Inigo will have access to all possible classes including the Tactician class. Since Inigo now has class and skill freedom, any combination of skills is possible depending on what you prefer. Some possible useful skill combinations are Vantage & Vengeance, Aegis & Counter, or all 5 -breaker skills at once.

The name "Inigo" likely comes from indigo, sixth color of the rainbow and a cross between blue and purple. In the Japanese version, "Azur" name likely comes from azure, meaning blue, possibly in reference to his armor.
Inigo's name could possibly be based on "Inigo Montoya," a character from the movie and book, "The Princess Bride", based on the famous quote "... you killed my father, prepare to die!" and how, in Inigo's timeline, his father is dead. In English speaking countries, "Inigo" is a variant of "Iñigo", which is a common Spanish name as English speaking countries does not use the "ñ" character.
- Inigo's birthday is the same day that Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon was first released in Japan.
- In the beginning of Paralogue 6, Inigo is seen saving a villager whom he calls "buttercup". This is a reference to the character Inigo Montoya from the movie "The Princess Bride" who similarly helps to save a Princess named Buttercup through the use of his gallant swordplay.
- Inigo's official artwork depicts him wielding a Silver Sword.
- Inigo is one of two children to have their official artwork depict themselves with a different hair color than their determinate parent. The other is Kjelle.
- If Chrom is Inigo's father, the latter will have the Mark of Naga in his right eye - opposite of his sister Lucina. He reveals this to Chrom in Inigo's paralogue if Chrom recruits him. Interestingly, the Mark does not appear in his critical cut-ins or confession scene. This is possibly because it would be extra artwork for a minor variation that would be difficult to see in the critical cut-ins.
- Inigo, Owain, and Lucina are the only child characters explicitly mentioned to have the Mark of Naga; it is never mentioned if Chrom and Lissa's other children have the Mark or not.
- There is a translation mistake in Inigo's EXPonential Growth battle quote. He calls the Entombed "Mummies", their Japanese name.
- If Inigo's sister is Morgan (female) or Lucina, his relationship event tile will be the same ask & reply for men.
