“Thank you, I'll do my best. By the way, what's your name?”
Laylea (レイリア Reiria, Leylia in fan translations) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the substitute character of Leen if Sylvia was not paired up. She is the sister of Sharlow, despite not having any knowledge of it. Laylea is able to initiate a unique conversation of her own, which will result in her acquiring the Barrier Sword.
Laylea shares similar character traits with Leen, as the major part of their dialogues are shared. She's honest, sometimes cynical, caring towards her friends and abhorring the idea of abandonment. She is also slightly more sultry than Leen is, as can be seen from her adult-like design, complete with a curvy body, large breasts, and a mature face.

Laylea may be easier to use than Leen is, due to the fact that she possesses Charm, a skill that Leen will never learn. As Dancers are generally not made for combat, stat growths are thus irrelevant in that regard. The only advantages that Leen has over Laylea is that she is able to inherit the Leg Ring and Knight Ring from her mother, alongside superior defensive abilities and the Miracle skill. Laylea, on the other hand, will have to buy the two rings in order to really be useful as a Dancer.
It is ultimately up to the player's discretion as to whom to select as their dancer unit in Generation 2. Laylea would be the better choice of the two, should the player opt to have their dancer unit play both a supportive and defensive role.
In Chapter 7, Laylea can talk to Seliph, but nothing will happen.
In Chapter 9, Laylea can talk to Sharlow, resulting in him gaining one point of luck.
Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.
