“You think I don't know that? I've been praying for this day to come, you know... My father's dying wish was to return peace to the Thracian Peninsula. And I'll do whatever is necessary to end King Bloom's reign.”
—Leif

Leif (リーフ Riifu, Leaf in the Japanese version), full name Leif Faris Claus (リーフ・ ファリス・クラウス Rīfu Farisu Kurausu), is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 and Fire Emblem: Awakening. He is the prince of Leonster, the son of Quan and Ethlyn, brother of Altena, the nephew of Sigurd, the cousin of Seliph, and the grandson of Vylon (Ethlyn's side of the family) and Calf (Quan's side of the family). He is the descendant of Noba on Quan's side and Baldo on Ethlyn's side.

After the fall of Leonster, he managed to flee, alongside Finn and Nanna. After hiding out at several cities such as that of Alster and Tahra, Leif finally settled down in a small village known as Fiana. He inherits the iconic Light Sword from his late mother, Ethlyn, which is, incidentally, his personal weapon in the events of Thracia 776.

Leif is revealed to be 15 years of age in the events of Thracia 776, and 16 in the events of Genealogy of the Holy War.

Overall

Leif may start out fairly weak, but evolves into a formidable unit after promotion. It is recommended to have the Pursuit Ring passed down to him, as he will be unable to perform double attacks otherwise. Leif will also come with the Light Sword, assuming that Ethlyn had received it from Dierdre in Generation 1.

He comes with the skills Continue and Critical, and gains the Pursuit skill after promotion.

Conversations

In Chapter 7, Leif may speak to Seliph, but nothing will result of it.

In Chapter 8, Finn may speak to Leif, and Leif will gain three points of strength.

In Chapter 9, if Finn is alive at the beginning of the chapter, Leif may speak to Altena, resulting in her taking her leave of the battlefield. This will essentially allow her to be recruited in a later chapter.

In Chapter 10, if neither Nanna nor Leif has a lover, she may speak to him, and she will gain three points of HP.

In Chapter 10, Leif may speak to Altena, and she will gain one point of luck.

In the Final Chapter, if Teeny is in love with Leif, she may speak to him, and he will gain three points of magic.

In the Final Chapter, after Edda Castle is captured, if Leif is in love with Nanna/Janne, she may speak to him, and he will gain three points of defense (Nanna) or HP (Janne).

Overall

Unlike his appearance in Genealogy of the Holy War, Leaf is much weaker in this game. It is recommended to scroll-abuse him in order to prevent him from becoming a liability to the army in the long run. He comes with the powerful Light Sword and the Continue skill, which contribute to his usefulness. Leif Promotes at the end of Chapter 18.

Ending

  • (If Nanna is alive)

Leif - The Prince of Leonster (レンスターの王子 Rensutā no ōji)

Leif led the Jugdral Liberation Wars along with Seliph. After securing Barhara, he continued to travel around the continent, liberating those under oppression. In the Gran Year 780, Leaf united Northern and Southern Thracia into the New Kingdom of Thracia, where he declared himself king. Along with his queen, Nanna, and his sister, Altena, he carried on the legacy of Dain and Noba, devoting his life to maintaining peace and prosperity in his nation. As long as history exists in Thracia, the legendary King Leif's name will never be forgotten...

  • (If Nanna is dead)

Leif - The Prince of Leonster (レンスターの王子 Rensutā no ōji)

Leif led the Jugdral Liberation Wars along with Seliph. After securing Barhara, he continued to travel around the continent, liberating those under oppression. In the Gran Year 780, Leif united Northern and Southern Thracia into the New Kingdom of Thracia, where he declared himself king. Along with his sister, Altena, he carried on the legacy of Dain and Noba, devoting his life to maintaining peace and prosperity in his nation. As long as history exists in Thracia, the legendary King Leaf's name will never be forgotten...

Etymology

Leif's name could be derived from 'Leif', a name of Scandinavian origin which befittingly means "heir" or "descendant". In Norse Mythology, Leif was also the name of the man who survived Ragnarok. Leif's name could also be a reference to Lugh, a deity from Irish mythology who was the son of Cian (Quan) and Ethnia (Ethlyn).

Trivia

  • Leif is the only lord character from the past Japanese exclusive games that his name wasn't mentioned in the official site for Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken in the History of Fire Emblem section.
