“That's okay. I'm just happy to have a brother! Tristan, we must make certain we never get separated again!”
Janne (ジャンヌ Janne, alternatively translated as Jeanne in some of the fan translations) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the younger sister of Tristan and the daughter of Eve, a knight of Nordion. She is the substitute character of Nanna and thus will fill her role in the story if Raquesis was not paired up.
She has a special conversation with a fake Shanan (possibly Shanam) if she visits a certain northwestern village in Chapter 9. She will gain three points of Defense from this. It is important to note that this scene can be triggered by Femina instead.
After her father's death, Janne and Tristan were taken in by Sigurd's army. After the events of Chapter 5, they fled to Isaach with Shanan, Oifey, and Seliph. However, she was eventually separated from the others and found by a traveling merchant, who took her in as his daughter. When she was seven years old, the merchant was murdered by a soldier of the Grannvale Empire and she was thereafter adopted by Finn, who raised her in hiding alongside Leif. In Chapter 7, she fights alongside Leif and Finn to defend Leonster from Bloom's army.
Janne has a very similar personality to Nanna, being a kind and hardworking girl and dedicated to her goals. When she reunites with Tristan, she does not recognize him, and while she initially thinks that he is joking, she begins to believe his claim that he is her brother after he explains his backstory. She also harbors a desire to help others, as seen in her lover conversation with Leif in the Final Chapter, in which she persuades him to let her heal the army despite his refusal to allow her to fight.
|Starting Class||Holy Blood|
Janne is your average mounted healer, and is, like other substitute characters in the game, has disadvantages over the character she replaces. For one, Janne lacks the Pursuit skill, which Nanna will be able to learn, should her mother be paired with either Azel, Beowulf, or Finn. Janne also lacks the ever-useful Charm skill, which Nanna will always have as a prerequisite skill. While her magic is superior to the average Nanna, it's still somewhat low.
In Chapter 7, if Tristan talks to Janne, Janne will gain one point of luck.
In Chapter 9, if Janne visits a village in the northwest, Janne will have a conversation with a fake Shanan (Shanam?) and she will gain three points of defense.
In Chapter 10, if neither Janne nor Leif have a lover, Janne can talk to Leif, and Janne will gain three points of HP and 100 love points with Leif.
In the Final Chapter, if Janne and Leif are in love, Janne can talk to Leif after Edda is captured and Leif will gain three points of HP.
In the Final Chapter, if Janne and Seliph are in love, Janne can talk to Seliph and Seliph will gain three points of HP.
Original replacement characters have the same love growth rates, unless said otherwise.
