Julia is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the daughter of Arvis and Deirdre, the younger twin sister of Julius, and the younger half-sister of both Seliph and Saias. She is the descendant of Heim on her mother's side, Fjalar on her father's side, and Saint Maera on both sides. Cigyun, Kurth, and Victor are her grandparents.
Sometime before the second generation begins, Julius obtains the Loptous tome from Manfroy and is thus possessed, causing him to kill Deirdre. Before her death, however, Deirdre managed to warp Julia out of the castle to safety. As a result of the trauma she suffers from the incident, Julia ends up losing her memories. Julia is then found by Lewyn, who cares for her until Seliph chances upon them after retaking Ganeishire, whereupon Julia will join the liberation army. Seliph will then give her either the Nosferatu or Aura tome, who picks it up at the castle he conquers after her enlistment.
Julia is shown to harbor feelings for Seliph prior to learning of the fact that they are half-siblings.
In the beginning of Chapter 10, Julia is abducted by Manfroy and thereafter taken to Chalphy Castle. Her memories are restored here, and she will meet with her father Arvis momentarily before Manfroy takes her away once again. In the Final Chapter, after a short conversation with Julius, Manfroy brainwashes Julia to fight Seliph's army. She is later freed from the spell when Manfroy is slain and is spoken to by Seliph. Lewyn then reveals that Arvis swiped the Book of Naga from Belhalla and hid it in Velthomer. An enchantment is then placed over the tome, causing it to be unlockable by Deirdre's circlet, an item which Arvis entrusts to Julia prior to going to battle with Seliph.
After the war, Julia will reside in Grannvale and rule the country with Emperor Seliph.
When she first appears in Chapter 6, Julia seems to be shy and quiet, due to her losing memories of her family. But as the story progresses, she gains confidence in her magical abilities and the courage to fight. It is also noted that she is capable of selflessness by increasing Seliph's magic resistance despite the fact that the spell is known for taking a toll on the caster.
Once she recovers her memories in the Final Chapter, Julia immediately realizes that Julius is being possessed by the evil god Loptous, indicating that she can be quite perceptive. After Manfroy is killed, Seliph can talk to Julia and break her free of the spell controlling her. She then claims that she finally knows her purpose, and that it's to fight Julius with the power of Naga coursing through her veins.
Overall, Julia is a kind-hearted person with great inner-strength that she was able to develop during her journey with Seliph. She faces the ordeals ahead of her with unwavering will and will not hesitate to put her life on the line for everyone.

Statistically, Julia will always gain a point in magic upon leveling up, and will gain a point in resistance half the time. However, her atrocious skill and speed growths will most likely cause problems for her in the long run. This can be fixed by giving her the Nosferatu tome, which will help to offset any damage she may sustain during battles, and is a better choice over the heavy Aura tome.
As a result of her strong growths in Magic, Julia will always make an extremely competent healer, so ensure Lana/Muirne speaks to her in Chapter 6, after Ganeishire Castle is subjugated (This will result in her attaining a Mend Staff).
Another thing to note about Julia is her promotion. Her promotion gives her huge stat gains, but the most important ones being the +8 to Speed and the +5 to skill two stats that she has a poor growth in (although her good base in speed, makes up for the bad growth). Many times Julia will reach 19 to 23 speed on average after promotion, making her able to double many enemies, especially the ones wielding Axes and Lances. The +1 to movement also helps her get through Gen 2's huge maps, although she will still lag behind your mounted units.
When Julia is re-recruited in the final chapter, she will obtain the Book of Naga upon visiting Velthomer. At this stage in the game, she becomes extremely formidable, as this tome increases both her speed and skill by 20 points, her defense and resistance by 20 points, and has the ability to nullify the effects of the Loptous tome. Naga's usability still hinges moderately on the stats Julia possesses by that point in the game, though this should only be a cause for worry when facing off against the Dark Warlords.
In Chapter 9, after Grutia Castle is captured, Julia may speak to Seliph, and he will gain three points of magic defense.
In the Final Chapter, after Manfroy has been killed, Julia may be re-recruited if Seliph speaks to her. Nothing noteworthy will occur if she is spoken to before slaying Manfroy.
Julia is a unique character, in the sense that she possesses absolutely no love points or growths with anyone apart from Seliph, with whom she has a negative love growth, and their starting love points can be either 0 or 490, depending on certain obscure conditions. However, through exploitation of a bug caused by the Jealousy System with Lana/Muirne and Larcei/Creidne, it is possible to cause the duo to fall in love. Furthermore, she still gains love points with units she is placed next to normally, so she can still end up with another lover if kept by their side for 100 turns.
Theoretically, there is enough time for any unit except possibly Coirpre/Sharlow to fall in love with her by the end of the game, but realistically only units that are recruited in Chapter 6 stand a good chance. As the only male unit recruited in Chapter 6 who shares her pre-promotion movement rate, Arthur is the best choice.
Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.
