“Pirn: You haven't changed at all since you were a kid, have you? Have you at least learned not to wet your bed?!
- Lifis: C-Come on, Pirn... That was a long time ago.”
—Pirn and Lifis talking
Lifis (リフィス Rifisu) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is the 25 year old leader of the Lifis Pirates, a group of pirates who wreak havoc on the eastern coasts of Thracia. Leif, if he has managed to save all the villages in Chapter 2, decides to investigate Lifis and his gang, resulting in an assault on his hideout. Leif can either kill Lifis, an action which his mentor Eyvel strangely condemns, take him prisoner and then release him, or capture him and seize Lifis's hideout. For Lifis to join Leif, Leif must choose the last option.
Lifis grew up in the same village as Pirn, who was among the first of the villagers to mock Lifis for such things as his bedwetting habit. Though masked by his bravado and genuine skill, even as a grown man and leader of a pirate gang, Lifis hides a cowardly heart. He lies to protect himself, to keep himself out of battle, and to win the affections of Safy, the girl he lusts after (but claims he is not willing to reform for). If Lifis dies or isn't recruited, he will become the Deadlord Porcus.
It seems quite odd that Lifis would join the player, as it is mentioned by August that Lifis kills innocents unnecessarily among other things, altough his joining may be because of Safy's pleading for his forgiveness, or Lifis realizing he could make money off of turning Leif into the empire. He may have stayed because of Safy, or after he was rescued in Chapter 4 and had a change of heart.

Lifis is the main thief that you get, and in this game, it is important to get him high build, thus it is best to wait to obtain the Neir Scroll before leveling him too much. He is not a great combat unit with a pursuit critical coefficient of 0 and with terrible luck growth, so do not expect him to annihilate hordes of enemies.

“Hehe... That was close.”

—Lifis's opening lines in battle
“Guess I'll have to start over again. See ya, idiots!”
—Lifis's quote if released after capture
- (If deployed in Chapter 12x)
Leif: What's the matter, Lifis? You don't look well.
Lifis: Hey, prince... Could you switch me with someone else? I really don't want to...
August: You said you were living around here when you were a child. Do you know some of the thieves?
Lifis: Well... There's this one guy I really don't want to meet, and...
August: Don't be ridiculous. Now go to your post!
Lifis: Come on, please! Just this once!
August: No. It's the prince's orders!
Talk with PirnEdit
- In Chapter 12x
Pirn: Hm? ...Are you Lifis? Hey, long time no see!
Lifis: Y-Yeah... Hi...Pirn...
Pirn: You haven't changed at all since you were a kid, have you? Have you at least learned not to wet your bed?
Lifis: C-Come on, Pirn... That was a long time ago.
Pirn: Really? You were biggest crybaby in the village, and you were always being bullied by the other guys... It seems like it was yesterday.
Lifis ...You were the one who always picked on me first...
Pirn: Hm? Did you say something?
Lifis: No, nothing...
Pirn: Oh, okay. Hey, you're working for the Liberation Army now, right? Sounds like fun. Yeah, I think I'll join. Where's your leader?
Pirn: What! You got a problem?
Pirn: Let's have fun again, like the old days! What do you say?
Lifis: ...I'm gonna be stuck with this asshole again...?
Pirn: Hey, you all right? You look a little pale.
Lifis: Huh? D-D-Do I? M-Maybe I caught a cold or something! Ah, ahahaha...
(If Trewd hasn't been killed/captured)
Lifis: Oh, Pirn. Can you do something about that mercenary? We're having trouble with him...
Pirn: Mercenary? You mean Trewd? Sure, he's a good friend of mine. I'll talk to him.
Lifis - The Shy Thief (シャイな盗賊 Shaina tōzoku)
After the war, Lifis earned a government post and remained in office for several years. During that time period, the surrounding pirate outposts were decimated by the Kelves Garrison Forces. He disappeared after that, and no one has seen him ever since.
- It is never explained as to how Lifis became a Dark Warlord. See more on this page.
