“That Boey's just a kid who can't use anything but fire magic. As for me, Lady Celica, I can use thunder magic as well. Please count on me, 'kay?”

Mae (メイ Mei, May in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. She is 17 years old.

She is voiced by Eri Inagawa in the Japanese version and by Cherami Leigh in the English version.


She is a young yet skilled mage who joins Celica's group not only to watch out for her, but also to keep an eye on Boey, who has sworn to protect Celica despite the fact his skill is quite lacking compared to his eagerness. Her role is Celica's servant, however, the two are very close friends. She accompanies Celica on her journey towards the Mila Temple.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

After the war, Mae continues to work with Boey at the church of Zofia. The two are eventually wed and bore children, though their feuding never ceased.

Spoilers end here.


Mae is an adept mage who is well aware of her talent. She is constantly in pursuit of self-improvement and is a prime example of a "type A" personality. She has an intense rivalry with Boey, whom she frequently tries to outdo at everything and teases about his insecurities. Often seeking approval from others, she desires to be viewed as a highly dependable person. Mae is very enthusiastic, and it is evidently contagious. She also generally speaks in an exuberant, confident, and even arrogant manner. She is further known to end her sentences with an "...or what?." She longs for a carefree lifestyle after the war and has a fondness of the ocean.

She and Celica are extremely close; additionally, Mae is extremely attached to her. As a result of this, she is extremely apprehensive when Celica talks to other men for extended periods of time during story dialogue. Celica states that Mae has always cheered her up when she was sad or lonely, and Mae continues to support Celica and others in this way during the war.


Fire Emblem GaidenEdit


In Chapter 2, talk to her at the Novis Monastery (needed to progress).

Mae is an average Mage. She has a typical glass canon build with high Strength and low HP/Defense, but lacks the Speed to be truly dangerous which is exactly what keeps her from being a great unit. Her low Speed also makes her very vulnerable to being Double Attacked. She has somewhat high Resistance for a Magic unit, which makes her decent at fighting other Magic units. Unfortunately, she has the lowest starting HP and HP growth of all Mages. It is worth noting that Mae has the lowest overall growths in the game (excluding Pre-Promoted units), though this does not hurt her capabilities that much when comparing her to other Mages.

When you first get her, she is the best attacker in your group, outdoing even Celica initially. She starts with Thunder, which makes her the only 3 range unit that Celica starts with. Unfortunately, there is a rather large level gap between Mae's new spells. However, her spell list is actually quite balanced. She will learn Aura, which is a very powerful single hit spell, as well as Angel which is very effective at defeating monsters.

All in all, Mae is an okay Mage unit. Most Mage units in Gaiden suffer her same low Speed problem, but she hits hard enough to be reasonably useful and comes with some nice abilities. She will usually wind up better than Boey simply due to her spell list, but not by much. Her low Speed really hurts her offense and survivability and her low HP reserve makes consistent spellcasting dangerous.
