“Your Highness, this is the only life I know. Please, you don't need to get so emotional.”
—Mahnya to Rahna before entering her final battle
Mahnya (マーニャ Mānya) is a non-playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the captain of the Silessean Pegasus Knights and the older sister of Ferry as well as the aunt of Ced and Fee. She is one of the Four Angelic Knights of Silesse and trained alongside Pamela. Lewyn states that he once had a crush on her.
Mahnya first appears at the end of Chapter 3 when she is sent as a messenger by Queen Rahna to offer asylum to Sigurd's army after they are declared as a traitors by Grannvale. At the start of Chapter 4, she almost reveals Ferry's true reasons for wanting to remain at Lewyn's side. After the fall of Thove Castle to Sigurd, Mahnya enters a battle against Pamela in defense of Silesse Castle. However, Pamela is reinforced by Andorey and his Beige Ritter, who quickly annihilate Mahnya and her squad. This causes shock and grief to Rahna, Lewyn, and Ferry.
Her niece, Fee, names her pegasus steed after Mahnya in memory of her.
Mahnya appears in Chapters 3 and 4 as an unrecruitable NPC unit.

As the leader of the Silessen Pegasus Knights, Mahnya has higher stats than any of the other four Angelic Knights of Silesse. Sadly enough, she is ill-equipped to fight against Pamela, and the unexpected arrival of Andorey and the Beige Ritter make matters worse.
“Ahh... Ferry... ...Lord Lewyn...”
