“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.

Louise is very useful when you first get her, but she falls behind Rebecca at later levels. Nonetheless, if Rebecca and/or Wil dies, or they were not trained, she can serve as an excellent replacement for them, boosted significantly by the fact that she is at support Level A with Pent. Pair her up with Pent to bring out her abilities to their fullest extent. You may want to use her remaining 2 support conversations with a good backline unit, like Erk or Rebecca.
Statwise, Louise is very much aligned to be a mage killer: her strength is a bit below average, but also has a solid resistance stat that is bolstered by her Light affinity and her A support with her husband Pent. However, her HP and con are a little low, and her average speed can be a bit underwhelming against boss magic users, but she can still pick off most magic users. Afa's Drops or some stat boosters are not a bad idea, as they help her bring her stats up to even better levels, especially her HP, skill, and speed. Overall, Louise tends to fall behind a bit as the game progresses, but she can still be a passable unit, and her A support with Pent also increases her utility.
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...
