Katerina (エカテリーナ Ekaterīna, Ekaterina in the Japanese version) is a character mentioned in Fire Emblem Fates.
Queen Katerina was the first wife of the king of Nohr, Garon. She later gave birth to Xander, who was the first of the Nohrian royal siblings to be born. She died some time before the start of Fates when the Nohrian children were extremely young and was replaced by Arete, King Garon's second wife. Cassita, Elise's nanny, talked about her to the Avatar in the Birthright route and describes Katerina as a very beautiful woman, who was also very well loved in Nohr. Camilla, the eldest daughter of Nohrian royal family, also talked about her and Azura's past to the Avatar in the Revelation route. Xander was kept away from talking to his step-sister, Azura (whom he really wanted to spend time with, as much as Camilla and Leo).
Katerina and Ecatarina are variants of the name Catherine. The name originated from the Greek Αἰκατερίνα or Αἰκατερίνη (Aikaterina, Aikaterinē), which is of unknown etymology. The name subsequently came to be associated with the Greek adjective καθαρός (katharos), meaning "pure".
Katerina's Japanese name, Ekaterina, is a feminine name that is the Bulgarian and Macedonian form of Katherine, and a variant of the Russian transliteration of the name Yekaterina (Екатерина), which means "pure".
