“Joshua... My...dear, sweet child...”
—Ismaire shortly before dying

Ismaire (イシュメア, Ishumea, Ishumare in the Japanese version) is a character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.


Ismaire is the just, beautiful, and beloved queen of Jehanna, known as the 'Queen of White Dunes'. She took the throne in accordance with her dying husband's wish; and since she became busy with matters of governance, she could not make enough time for her son who then left the country. During the events of The Sacred Stones she is killed by Caellach because of her refusal to give up Jehanna's Sacred Stone. It is revealed, shortly before Ismaire draws her last breath, that the missing heir is in fact the sword fighter Joshua.

At the end of Chapter 14, whether Joshua is alive or not, the player will receive the Sacred Twins Audhulma and Excalibur from her.

If her stats are viewed before she leaves the map in Chapter 14: Queen of White Dunes, Ismaire has an A rank in swords. This is because she was taught how to use them by Carlyle. He was a vassal who was eventually led astray by his love for her, indirectly resulting in both their deaths.

In GameEdit


She is not playable in the main story, but can be recruited in the Creature Campaign by completing the Tower of Valni. She is a Swordmaster, and comes with the only normally obtainable Wind Sword in the game.

Ismaire has better growths than most of the secret characters, and comes at a lower starting level. However, her starting stats, compared to the other possible swordmasters, leave something to be desired. She will have decent HP (usually around the low 40's), decent strength (about the same as Marisa's), good skill (close to maxing), decent luck (close to Joshua's luck), great resistance, and poor defense. She is the only secret character able to cap a stat on her own—speed—although the occurrence is quite rare. She also gives you the exclusive Wind Sword, one of the lightest and quickest swords in the game. Ismaire is one of the better secret characters, but still falls short in comparison to your other units; particularly in the Lagdou Ruins, where durability is all that matters.
