“Papa/Mama, I have to say one more thing before we leave. ...Rrrgh rawrggh rrh! That's dragon for "I love you!"”
—Kana joining the Avatar's army in Paralogue 2

Kana (カンナ, Kanna in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Fates. Either he or she is the child of the Avatar as well as the grandchild of Mikoto. Kana's in-game gender is the opposite of the Avatar's gender.

ProfileEdit

Kana is the child of the Avatar and the grandchild of Mikoto. If the Male Avatar is married to Azura, Kana becomes Shigure's sister. Any other mother will leave Female Kana an only child. Male Kana can be the brother of all possible children in the game except for Shigure. According to Male Kana's supports with his sibling, he is the youngest of all the child units in Fates.

Shortly after being born, Kana was placed in the Deeprealms for their safety so they could be raised free from the war between Hoshido and Nohr. From time to time, the Avatar and their spouse would come over and visit to make sure that Kana was okay. After several years in the Deeprealms, Kana grew excited when they learned that the Avatar was going to pay them a visit on one particular day.

In Kana's Paralogue, their excitement for the Avatar's visit is cut short by a sudden attack by invisible invaders. However, as fate would have it, the Avatar arrives just in time to save them. The Avatar tells them to flee to safety, but the enemy invaders are too much for them to handle. Kana refuses to leave and, in their rage of seeing the Avatar hurt, degenerates into a Feral Dragon, revealing that they inherited the Avatar's transformation ability. However, the Avatar is not given much time to recover from the news as more reinforcements show up. The Avatar and their forces quickly defeat the enemy invaders before Kana could fully degenerate. If the player does not clear the Invisible forces by Turn 8, the Bandit Twins, Lloyd and Llewelyn, appear on the battlefield seeking to capture Kana as a pet. The Avatar and their forces deal with the Bandit Twins and clear the enemy forces.

With the enemies dispatched, Azura helps to calm down Kana thanks to her special song, reverting them to their human form. Though afraid that the Avatar will be upset by their sudden rage, the Avatar is more proud than upset. However they warn Kana that without a Dragonstone, which Azura crafted one for them, they could lose themselves once more. Although the Avatar does not want them to come along because of their tender-young age, Kana's fear of them never returning again if trouble occurs again convinces the Avatar to allow them to join them on their journey.

In their default ending, "the divine Kana" becomes worshiped as a god-like entity in later generations.

Heirs of FateEdit

In the DLC Heirs of Fate, both versions of Kana appear as separate individuals and playable main characters alongside Shigure. Both of them wield different forms of Yato. In the first chapter, the Female Kana joins with the Hoshidan children to fight Invaders, while the male one takes dragon form and joins the Nohr children to escape Invaders in the second.

In the first Xenologue, Female Kana cries because she was not strong enough to fight alongside her father, and fears that he may have been killed. She bumps into Mitama and Selkie, who are experiencing the same problems as her. In a conversation, the three are ambushed by invisible soldiers and decide to retreat, since they are outmatched. They soon find Kiragi and Hisame fighting off two more of the invaders.

The three then converse with them. Suddenly, the Fujin Yumi starts reacting with the Yato, which turns into the Noble Yato. With it, Female Kana is able to fight back against the invaders. After the battle, one Invader flees from the battlefield, and Kana starts to chase them when a spirit appears before her, telling her not to. Kana, Mitama and Selkie somewhat recognize the spirit, but they are unable to identify it. The spirit notices Kana's Yato and explains the several forms of the Yato to her. When the spirit asks Kana if she has transformed into a dragon before, she says that is not the case. The spirit gives a Dragonstone to Kana and explains its uses before leaving.

Meanwhile, Dwyer and Sophie attempt to calm down Male Kana, who has transformed into a dragon, to no avail. Forrest, Nina, and Ophelia are wandering when they hear Kana's dragon roar and find several invisible soldiers surrounding him. During the resulting battle, the group manages to escape from a Vallite ambush, and Kana returns to his human form. Kana reveals that invisible soldiers attacked his parents, similarly to those of the other children. Kana's Yato reacts with Forrest's Brynhildr and becomes the Grim Yato. Suddenly, all of the children forget who Kana is, much to his confusion. However, Kana notices Azura's spirit, who gives him a Dragonstone to control his impulses.

Kiragi and Female Kana later join Shiro's group and block the enemy attacks. Afterwards, the Hoshidan children retreat to a safer location. During this time, Shiro's Raijinto reacts with Kana's Noble Yato and turns into the Blazing Yato.

Male Kana later joins up with the rest of the Nohrian children and tries to fight, but the Grim Yato is not strong enough to match Female Kana's Blazing Yato. Siegbert offers his assistance to Kana, and the Grim Yato turns into the Shadow Yato after it reacts with Siegfried. Kana uses it to attack Female Kana, and for a few seconds, it shows the true identity of both sides. This confuses and surprises them before the illusion resets.

Afterwards, both Kanas transform into dragons. Siegbert and Forrest attempt to calm Male Kana down, but are stopped when Shigure intervenes.

After the two groups become isolated from one another, both Kanas despair over the divide because the Fire Emblem cannot be forged from either version of the Yato, making defeating Anankos seemingly an impossible task. Once they finally reach Anankos' palace, the two Kanas attempt to turn their respective Yatos into the Fire Emblem. Shigure uses his song to sap the group's strength, declaring that the Yatos' final form will not be needed and teleports them away.

While they are facing Anankos, the two Kanas forge the Fire Emblems. Following this, they enter a battle against Anankos and resurrected forms of each child's parents.

A final scene shows the two Kanas sitting together, and Shigure using the arranged greeting.

PersonalityEdit

In general, Kana's personality is most comparable to that of most children; constantly cheerful, has a big imagination and is extremely enthusiastic however they tend to get really emotional and they hate being referred to as a child and the thought of growing up. Kana absolutely adores the Avatar and aspires to be like them and, just like the Avatar, Kana walks around barefoot, is perpetually optimistic, and may apologize after attacking. They are also more clever than they let on, just like the Avatar, and isn't above using people's preconceived notions of their ditziness to hide it, although this is only revealed in Female Kana's S-support with Dwyer. Although they are naturally cheerful, happy and frank, they really have a dislike of being alone.

Their personalities are somewhat different depending on gender.

Male Kana feels more of a need to prove himself, though still tries to help in anyway he can. Male Kana often feels annoyed because he feels that his mother treats him like a child even though he wants to help her, as seen in his Supports with his father. He seems to have inherited some of her traits as well, such as having a way with animals, as he manages to tame Avel and get along with Ace in his Supports with Sophie and Percy, while having some talents of his own, such as drawing, in his Supports with Shiro.

Female Kana loves to help others in anyway she can, especially around her father. She is particularly prone to crying in an instant. Female Kana's loneliness is actually crippling enough that she cries whenever she's alone, as shown in her supports with Forrest, but she nonetheless tries to keep up a cheerful demeanor in front of the rest of the army.

Their birthday is April 19.

Overall Edit

Base ClassEdit

Kana has the most variety in their stat growths and caps depending on the Boon and Bane stat determined for the player's Avatar at the start of the game, alongside their ability to S-Support any opposite gender characters, including non-marriagable first generation units and other children characters. Unless the player wants to create a Kana to fulfill a specific role, the overall end result of any Kana is rather mixed. Kana always inherits and starts off as a Nohr Prince/ss, starting them off with both Nobility to boost their experience gain and Dragon Fang for a solid attacking skill. Kana, upon recruitment already comes with a Dragonstone on their own which carries the same benefits and risks the Avatar has when using it. However, Kana gains an extra incentive to use their dragonstone as their personal skill, Draconic Heir, grants them a 15% HP regen whenever they have it equipped at the start of the player's turn. Due to this skill, and with other HP regeneration skills, they can recover upwards to 95% of their maximum HP per turn, making them a powerful option for a tank unit that can fully recover almost all of their health if they are not killed. Like the Avatar, Kana needs to be cautious of Wyrmslayer and Dragon Spirit-wielding units as they deal effective damage against them, regardless of their current class. If the Avatar is married to Kaden, Keaton, Velouria or Selkie, Kana will also need to be wary of Beast Killer, Hunter's Knife and Beastbane using units regardless of their current class.

The Nohr Prince/ss has two promotions; Nohr Noble and Hoshido Noble. Nohr Noble is only accessible in the Conquest and Revelation route. It gives them access to tomes/scrolls for a ranged magical option. The class' skills revolve around offensive presence with Draconic Hex to reduce the stats of enemies that engage them and Nohrian Trust, giving them access to their partner's skills during battle. Hoshido Noble is only accessible in the Birthright and Revelation route and focuses on supportive tactics highlighted by their new usage of Staves and Rods. Dragon Ward gives adjacent allies the chance to shave off damage and Hoshidan Unity helps boost their skill activation rates. While playing Conquest and Birthright cements them into a particular role due to the route exclusivity of their promotions, Revelation allows the player to decide their ultimate final class to suit whatever playstyle they desire from them.

InheritanceEdit

In essence, due to the Avatar's ability to befriend all other units, marry whatever opposite-gendered spouse they desire to make Kana, and choose any non-special class as their secondary, Kana has a wide range of classes to either finish as or access to nearly every skill in the game with some help from either the player's own marriage, friendship seal set ups, or through help from the Unit Logbook. It should be noted however that access to the Kitsune class requires the Avatar to marry Kaden or Selkie, Wolfskin class requires their marriage to either Keaton or Velouria, and Female Kana has direct access to Villager class from Mozu. Azura can pass down any of her Songstress skills except for Inspiring Song either directly to Female Kana as her daughter or through Shigure and any of his potential siblings depending on what skill they inherited from her to pass down to both genders of Kana. Overall, Kana can make a great taskmaster, though some player manipulations may be required to achieve a certain result.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

Kana is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:

Etymology Edit

Kanna can have multiple meanings in Japanese depending on the characters used, such as, Kanna (鉋), meaning "Japanese Plane" or Kanna (環奈) meaning "Ringing Beauty" or "A Beautiful Ring" which could be a reference to their sweet, gentle and kind nature, as well as their cry in their dragon form or call to their parents.

It also may be based on a Canna, which is a type of flower that grows in the summer.

Another origin for Kanna's name is that the name as well as Japanese name of Kanna's parent, Kamui, is a nod to Kanna Kamuy, a dragon-based Ainu god of thunder and storm.

TriviaEdit

  • Kana's birthday is the same day that Fire Emblem Awakening was first released in Japan.
  • Male Kana is the third playable male character who can use Dragonstones after the Male Avatar and Bantu.
  • Kana is the second dragon-blooded character that can freely shapeshift parts of their body into their dragon forms, including changing their body parts in different ways like shifting their hand into a sharp spear or a dragon like mouth that they can shoot their dragonbreath. The Avatar is the first to possess this ability.
  • Both Kanas share their Japanese voice actors, Nobunaga Shimazaki and Satomi Sato, with Fates' Avatar.
    • Female Kana shares her English voice actress, Danielle Judovits, with Mitama as well as one of the female Avatar's voice sets.
  • Kana was voted as the 32nd most popular male character and the 34th most popular female character on Nintendo's official Fates character poll.
  • In the English version, Kana's S-supports may end platonically, rather than romantically, likely due to their young age, (with the exception of Selkie). Their platonic S supports include: Rhajat, Shiro, Velouria, Caeldori, Sophie and Hisame. However, the Hubba Tester and Compatibility will still retain the marriage lines.
  • The Avatar's and Kana's dragon roars are changed in the international release to generic dragon roars (specifically the sounds that, Minerva, Cherche's wyvern, makes in some of her supports).
  • Though Kana's support dialogue with their mother is the same regardless of gender, the flowers shown to her mother differs in colour depending on who her mother is and what hair colour, special trait or important role they may have, with one of the exceptions being Sakura, as she is shown her namesake flower.
    • Another case is when Male Kana shows the Avatar a white flower field, which is based on her default hair color, regardless of what the player has chosen.
  • Female Kana is unable to unequip a Bath Towel in the international version of Fire Emblem Fates. However, it is optional in the Japanese version.
  • In the Heirs of Fate DLC, Kana inherits Yato from the Avatar.
  • Both genders of Kana are capable of learning or inheriting the most amount of skills in Fates with 107 out of 108 non-DLC skills. However, this is impossible in a single playthrough without the assistance of the Unit Logbook.
    • Male Kana has the most amount of learnable skills out of all characters in Fates with a grand total of 139 skills when DLC skills are included. Female Kana has the second with 134 learnable skills when including DLC skills.
  • If the Avatar achieves an S-support with Kaden, Keaton, Selkie, or Velouria, then the resulting Kana will be able to use both Dragonstones and Beaststones (albeit in different classes). They are one of the four units in the game to possibly have this ability, along with Selkie and Velouria.
  • Male Kana is one of two male characters voiced by a woman in the English version of a Fire Emblem game. The other is Awakening's Libra (who, unlike Kana, was played by a woman in both the Japanese and English versions).
    • This makes Male Kana is the only playable male character to be voiced by a female in the English version of Fates (Anthony, an NPC from the Revelation route was also voiced by a female).
      • This also makes Male Kana is the only children unit to be voiced by a female in the English version of Fates.
        • And this also makes the only instance where a male character was originally voiced by a male voice actor in the Japanese version, but played by a female voice actress in the English version (unlike Morgan, who was voiced by a male voice actor in both the Japanese and English versions of Awakening).
