“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 (ルイーズ Ruīzu) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken. She is the beautiful wife of Pent, Count of Reglay of Etruria. She is also the distant cousin and close friend of Queen Hellene of Bern. She is somewhat child-like in nature, but can be overprotective as well, as her supports with her adoptive son Erk prove.
Louise is actually not 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 possesses 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. Ironically, she grows up into such a gorgeous and elegant woman that Rebecca, in their supports, begs her to help her become a true lady. Louise then explains how she and Pent met and married, telling her that her "secret" is being strong-willed and focused. However, in a support conversation with Erk, she is described as sweet and childlike.
Louise is the mother of Klein and Clarine of Fire Emblem: Fūin no Tsurugi, as well as a relative of Queen Hellene of Bern. As the fight with the Black Fang unfolds, she finds out that she is already pregnant with Klein. If Louise falls in battle, she and her husband, Pent, will both leave the party.
She 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's 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.
Louise: Forgive me, my love...
Final chapter: Light Quote
“No matter what happens, I'll be at Lord Pent's side.”
Pent - Mage General and Louise - Lady of Violets
When Athos died, Pent took over his research. To focus on his studies, Pent resigned as Mage General of Etruria. This action set the palace in an uproar, but Pent and Louise endured.
