“I wondered what manner of ignoramus would mislay their weapon. Now I know.”
—Miriel bringing Vaike's axe in Chapter 2

Miriel (ミリエル Mirieru, Myriel in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Awakening.

According to the official Japanese website, she is voiced by Yurika Aizawa.[1] In the English version she is voiced by Tara Platt.


Miriel is a member of Chrom's Shepherds. She is the mother of Laurent and a potential mother of Morgan. Her birthday is February 12.

In Chapter 2, Miriel arrives at the Northroad shortly after the Shepherds engage a group of Risen soldiers. Upon entering the fray, Miriel stumbles upon a lost axe on the ground and decides to hold onto it until she could find its owner. Upon learning that the owner is none other than Vaike, she proceeds to chastise him before returning him his axe, where she warns him to keep track of his belongings or risk having it forcefully attached to his hands by magic.

In Paralogue 14, Miriel and the Shepherds arrive at the Desert Oasis after hearing about the supposed "Mirage Villages." Piquing Miriel's interest, if she visits the southwestern mirage village, Miriel will encounter Laurent, who recognizes her even though she does not remember any sort of meeting between the two. Laurent offers to accompany her during her research of the villages, which she accepts. After the map is cleared, Miriel is approached by Laurent once more, who asks her about his performance in battle. Though she bluntly points out his flaws, he makes up for it from skill developed through hard work. Appreciative for her praise, Laurent calls her mother and shows her a carbon copy of her ring that he had received from her in the future. Though Miriel claims that the possibility lies that the ring is inconclusive proof as Laurent may be a thief who may have stolen it from from her said child, Miriel does not deny that Laurent is possibly her son. Miriel, for the time being, accepts that he is possibly her son and wishes to inquire whether or not he truly is her son, together.

After the war, Miriel will continue with her studies, often disappearing for days upon her latest discoveries. In her final years, her research cumulates with an invention of extreme importance, though the said invention is not made clear to the player.


Miriel is a perfectionist who cannot stand having even a single book out of place in the Shepherd's garrison. She is especially harsh when berating anyone who behaves thoughtlessly. An embodiment of efficiency, Miriel keeps track of everything in the army, making sure everything is up to code. In fact, she is efficient enough to keep her own possessions in order, even though she has the most possessions out of everyone in the army. More so, Miriel is an intellectual individual with a vast array of eloquent vocabulary which leaves most of the Shepherds, more often than not, confused or sometimes even annoyed. Miriel tends to be interested only in the theoretical and discovery of the inner workings of the world. If something interests her, such as Frederick's sword parry techniques or the Avatar's tactical brilliance despite their amnesia, Miriel stops at nothing to gather as much knowledge as possible as her role as a scholar.

Miriel's personality during her romantic S-Supports are starkly different from other character's S-Supports. While most openly will declare their love, Miriel admits her affections in a scientific and clinical manner, usually saying that she had "developed feelings" for them at best. Still Miriel becomes a loving wife and fully supports her husband throughout the war, but still retains her scientific way of stating her love for him in her romantic Event Tile quotes.

Base ClassEdit

Miriel is a very capable Mage unit and the first magic user recruited in the game, save the Avatar. Her Magic, Speed, and Skill grow at very steady rates, making her able to inflict more damage, launch more attacks, and better perform critical attacks in battle. Such strengths are, however, offset by her low Defence growth, making it imperative for her to avoid as much strength-based damage as possible. Compared to the other playable Mage hailing from the parent generation, Ricken, Miriel is magically stronger and has better growth rates in Skill, Speed, and Resistance.

As a Sage, Miriel gains the ability to wield staves, and a rather potent one at that - As her high Magic stat (second only to Emmeryn) in this class makes her a far more competent healer than both Lissa and Maribelle in any of their stave-wielding classes. Apart from this, Miriel's high Magic also makes her double as an incredible offensive magic unit, a fact that is bolstered by the Tomefaire skill, one that will further strengthen said stat when tomes are equipped. As a Dark Knight, however, Miriel's low Strength makes her the weakest Dark Knight when equipped with a sword. On the contrary, when her high Magic stat is exploited through the heavy usage of tomes, Miriel may thence be considered the most powerful Dark Knight, magic-wise. This, coupled with the tendency for enemies to possess low Resistance, renders the Lifetaker skill a splendid one for Miriel to learn, as she can readily recover copious amounts of HP with each kill that she chalks up.


Miriel's two reclassing options are the Troubadour and Dark Mage lines. Both function very well, as they harness Miriel's strengths in Magic, Speed and Skill. As a Troubadour, Miriel's growths are slightly better than Maribelle's in nearly all stats, save for Luck and Resistance. She will also gain some weapon experience in staff mastery, which will be useful in many of 3 of her 5 promoted class options. In spite of this, she also suffers from the exact same low defense problems that Maribelle faces. As a Valkyrie, her defenses may still hinder her, but only slightly; As her high Skill and Speed, alongside her ability to wield tomes once again, will be more than sufficient to ward off any threats that are made against her life. Yet another benefit that the Valkyrie class provides is the Dual Support+ skill, which gives her or her partner a significant boost in Pair Up situations, especially so when she is paired up with her husband. As a War Cleric, Miriel's caps will be more balanced, although her Strength and Defence will still leave a lot to be desired. Miriel may encounter difficulties killing enemies because of this handicap, but with proper Axe training or at least two Arms Scrolls, Miriel can thence utilize Bolt Axes to rectify this problem. Renewal is a great skill for her to possess as well, especially after she has been subjected to a bad enemy turn. Stacked with the Lifetaker skill, Miriel can thus recover a massive 80% of her health in one turn.

As a Dark Mage, Miriel gains only one new promotion class: Sorcerer. In this class line, Miriel can keep pace with Henry and Tharja, the other two Dark Mages; Her Magic growth, for one, is exactly the same as Tharja's, while her Speed matches Henry's. Her Defence growth is, however, markedly lower than both of theirs. Most of her other stats will fall somewhere between the two, allowing her to assume the role of the median Dark Mage/Sorcerer unit. As a Sorcerer, Miriel can learn Vengeance, the only attack skill that she can possibly pick up. Given her high Skill, Miriel can activate this skill fairly frequently after sustaining a few well-placed physical hits, allowing her resultant damage output to reach dangerous levels. Also, the Tomebreaker skill can make her an anti-mage unit, allowing her to avoid Magic-based attacks while piling damage upon the perpetrators in question.

A grandiloquent but fastidious Shepherd who waxes wroth if so much as a single arrow sits askew in its quiver. She adores research and obsesses over her object of study. The most superfluous packer. Born on February 12th.

Help DescriptionEdit

A meticulous, methodical Shepherd with high standards.


“What rapture... to have an astute significant other with whom to scrutinize this world's illimitable mysteries!”
—Miriel's Confession quote.

Final ChapterEdit

“Arise from your hypnopompic state! You are sorely needed here!”
—Miriel's final chapter quote.

“Let the scholars remember: there is no weapon more proficuous than the heart!”
—Miriel's quote after Grima was defeated by Chrom

“Avatar, just having you close transforms night into day. You wouldn't deny me that, would you?”
—Miriel reassuring the Avatar for their choice if she is his wife.

“While statistically unsubstantiated, I have what laymen might call a "hunch." This hunch corroborates most of the statements made thus far.”
—Miriel's quote after the Avatar's sacrifice of killing Grima

DLC Pre-BattleEdit

The Golden Gaffe Pre-BattleEdit

“I am far too organized to fall victim to larceny. However, the thought of you ransacking the belongings of others disquiets me. Think of the mess you make in the process! You simply must perish.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

EXPonential Growth Pre-BattleEdit

“Well, aren't you an edifying specimen. You resemble closely the mummified dead of our world, but I see potential. Killing you ought to yield ample rewards both for myself and science in general.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Infinite Regalia Pre-BattleEdit

“A corpse turned lord, is it? Fascinating. Who fashioned you from what, and why? Do you still function as it did in life? Are your memories intact? Perhaps the greatest treasure is the knowledge I may yet wrest from you...”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Death's Embrace Pre-BattleEdit

“These Risen lack vim - even as dead things go. They wear a plaintive look, as if death could not take them soon enough. But... despair is a human emotion... Do these walking corpses still retain a modicum of humanity? ...This tinge of sympathy I feel is most distressing and highly unproductive.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Five-Anna Firefight Pre-BattleEdit

“I find lava simply riveting. How does it retain its heat? What chemical changes occur, and how quickly? Could its power be harnessed? ...Ah, a Risen. I'd nearly forgotten I was in battle! Hold still while I slay you.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Roster Rescue Pre-BattleEdit

“How opprobrious of me to overlook a book while cataloguing our library. And how utterly vexing that YOU be privy to its knowledge and not me! Once we have recovered this "roster," I intend to see it managed more carefully.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Summer Scramble Pre-BattleEdit

“How utterly deplorable. Beneath this detritus of rogues and unclaimed rubbish lay a natural marvel. Clearly I must purge this panorama of its pollution posthaste.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Hot-Spring Scramble Pre-BattleEdit

“Hmm. These springs all derive from the same mountain... And yet olfactory analysis reveals that each pool comprises different minerals. How is it that one water source yields such disparate boons to the body? Visual corroboration must wait until I clear the steam off my glasses. ...Again.”
—Miriel's pre-battle quote.

Possible EndingsEdit

Miriel - Rapier Intellect
Miriel remained in Ylisse but would vanish for days at a time when her discoveries prompted further inquiry. In her final years, these excursions culminated in a historic invention of supreme import.
Miriel and the Avatar
Many wrote of Avatar's legendary exploits, but accounts of his origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—he loved his wife, Miriel, above all else.
Miriel and Frederick
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Alas, his wife, Miriel, would often vanish for weeks at a time as she pursued her studies.
Miriel and Virion
Virion returned home to Rosanne, where he was labeled a traitor and a coward, or else ignored entirely. But Miriel's discoveries improved their quality of life, and they soon came to love him once more.
Miriel and Stahl
Stahl continued his service as an Ylissean knight and led crucial missions across the realm. His scatterbrained gaffes were met with criticism from Miriel, but the two still built a happy life together.
Miriel and Vaike
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. He lived out his days with Miriel, whose sharp mind and tongue refused to be dulled by any change of scenery.
Miriel and Kellam
Miriel remained in Ylisse but would vanish for days at a time to pursue her studies. In her final years, this research led to a historic invention. Her husband's name has been lost to history.
Miriel and Lon'qu
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Miriel went with him and focused her studies on Ferox's unusual weather conditions.
