“I know I was all pumped up when we left Isaach, but now I'm... I'm scared. Just seeing everybody fighting and all... Well, one of us is gonna get killed sooner or later.”
—Mana to Seliph
Mana (マナ) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is the substitute character of Lana if Adean is not paired up. She is the sister of Dimna, and fulfills all the roles that Lana would have otherwise played.
In Chapter 8, after Conote is captured, if all the recruited characters in the second generation are alive, position Seliph next to Mana to trigger a conversation. This will result in Mana's luck rising by five points, but do note that this conversation will not occur if either Seliph or Mana already has a lover.
Mana and Lana share similar personalities: They are both kind, selfless, sometimes stubborn, and more than willing to provide assistance to those who need their help. However, Mana suffers from a lower self-esteem than Lana, mainly due to the fact that she is a mere commoner lacking Holy Blood. This causes her to feel inferior to practically every one else in the army, particularly Seliph, whom she harbors feelings for. This self-demeaning attitude of Mana is further reinforced in conversations shared with her older brother Dimna (who appears to be facing the same problem as well) and her possible lover Asaello.

As previously mentioned, Mana is the replacement character for Lana if Adean is not paired up by the end of Generation 1. She serves as a fairly decent healer; however, she will have lower stats than Lana, similar to that of most other substitute characters and their respective counterparts. In Mana's case, she will not have as much luck as Lana, due to lacking her counterpart's Ulir minor blood. She has no skills whatsoever and her growths in almost every area are extremely poor, totaling to 200%, actually lower than those of Adean. Furthermore, unlike Lana (who will likely start out with a variety of useful staves in her inventory), Mana starts out with nothing more than a basic Heal staff.
Her one advantage is her Resistance stat, which Lana can only beat if her father is Claude. Given Mana's horrendous HP and the prevalence of powerful tomes such as Yotsmungand during the second generation, however, this slight Resistance advantage is nearly useless. That being said, Mana can still do an okay job despite all of her flaws.
In Chapter 6, if Dimna talks to Mana, Mana will gain one point of luck.
In Chapter 6, if Seliph speaks to Mana after Sophara is captured, Mana will gain three points of HP and 100 love points with Seliph.
In the Final Chapter, if Mana is lovers with Asaello, she will be able to speak to him after Edda Castle is captured. This will result in Asaello gaining five points of HP.
In the Final Chapter, if Mana is lovers with either Seliph, Ulster, or Roddlevan, she will be able to speak to the lover in question after Dozel is captured. This will result in her lover gaining three points of magic defense.
Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.

- Her hair color differs in appearance. In her artwork from the first series of Treasure and the Fire Emblem: Trading Card Game (which reuses the Treasure art), her hair appears to be brown, but her ingame portrait, the Super Tactics Book and the second and third series Trading Card Game card artworks her hair appears to be black.
