“Despite what you may think, I shoot much better than I dance or sing. I believe I can be of some small assistance.”
—Louise talking to Eliwood
Louise is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. She is the wife of Pent, Count of Reglay of Etruria, while also being the distant cousin and close friend of Queen Hellene of Bern, making her a distant relative of Zephiel.
Louise was actually not born a high noblewoman, rather a girl from low nobility. In order to get Pent to choose her as his wife, she gained his admiration by vowing to protect him with her bow, with which she possessed deadly skill, rather than singing and dancing like the other girls who had been summoned to meet with Pent so he could choose a bride from them.
Despite being an aristocrat, Louise is not arrogant. She is instead gentle and well mannered, albeit somewhat childlike in nature, but can be overprotective as well, as her supports with her adoptive son Erk prove. Though her beautiful appearance is popular with her male companions, her feelings toward Pent are never swayed.
Description: The wife of Marquess Reglay. A lethal beauty.

Before looking at anything else, Louise looks like a unit that would not often be used. Her base stats in Skill, Speed and Luck are quite good, although they are hampered by her mediocre defenses and strength, and, most importantly, her foot lock, and lack of 1 range, due to being a Sniper.
While she's not amazing at fighting by herself, she can one-round fliers reliably with a Silver Bow, and Pent helps raise her offense quite a bit. Her support with Pent is actually the factor which makes her a unit you'll usually see in most playthroughs, as she makes Pent's combat even better, allowing him to survive more hits, and one-round almost every generic unit.
While Louise herself may not be amazing, she's a passable unit for flier killing, and she can buff Pent quite a bit, although she still needs to make sure that she's out of range of enemies which she cannot counter while supporting.
Louise: Forgive me, my love...
Pent: Louise! This is too dangerous. Let's return home.
Louise: But everyone...
Pent: You are my most important responsibility. Here, lean on my shoulder.

Eliwood: How is Lady Louise?
Lyn: Lord Pent is escorting her home to Etruria.
Hector: I see...
Lyn: Her life is not in danger. She said she'll be fine and that we shouldn't worry. Lady Louise is more concerned for our safety than her own.
Eliwood: Lady Louise...
