“... I've lived in Darkling Woods ever since I was a child. I think that I shall spend the rest of my life there.”
—Myrrh talking to Ephraim in a support conversation
Myrrh (ミルラ Mirura) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She is the adopted daughter of Morva who lives with him in the Darkling Woods. In Caer Pelyn, she is known as the Great Dragon. She acts as a companion to Ephraim, whom she addresses as "Brother" in their supports.
Myrrh appears as a Sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Myrrh first appears when Eirika and Ephraim reunite in Frelia after Chapter 8. Ephraim states that he found Myrrh in captivity within Grado territory. She reveals that she sensed a great evil coming from Grado and traveled there, but she ended up being captured and losing her dragonstone.
During Eirika's route, the Caer Pelyn elder, Dara, reveals that Myrrh is actually the Great Dragon from the legends who saved Magvel from the Demon King. Regardless of the route chosen by the player, she accompanies Ephraim on his quest, although she does not enter any battles before the twins' reunion. During Ephraim's route, she runs away from his group once they arrive at Taizel after their ship journey, with her reason being that she senses her dragonstone. She is eventually captured by Selena, whom she attempts to convince that Grado's cause is unjust. However, Selena refuses to believe her words and releases her. Before Ephraim's army begins clashing with Selena, Myrrh rejoins her former companions. After the battle, she obtains her dragonstone, although she is saddened by Selena's death.
Before the battle to retake Renais Castle begins, Myrrh decides to join Ephraim and Eirika on the battlefield. In Chapter 20, she hopes to reunite with Morva when the army arrives at the Darkling Woods. However, Morva is forcibly transformed into a Draco Zombie by Lyon. After her father is slain by the twins' army, she cries over his death, but continues to fight against the Demon King and his minions.
In the ending, Myrrh returns to the Darkling Woods. If she has an A support with Ephraim, she will develop a stronger bond with him, although she never leaves her home again. Alternatively, if she has an A support with her guardian Saleh, she will eventually move to Caer Pelyn, where she was treated as a normal girl.
Myrrh is a shy and humble girl who is often lonely. Much of her dialogue is expressing concern for whomever she is speaking to, and she rarely talks otherwise. While she seems to prefer solitude, she actually longs for close companions.
On the stats with over 100%, she will always get +1 on the stat, and sometimes +2 if the RNG is under the number that is produced by subtracting 100 from the growth rate. For example, in HP, she will always get at least +1 (since the RNG can't go above 100) but if the second RN is under 30, she will get +2 to HP.

Myrrh, like most Manaketes, is a useful character, capable of killing most enemies with ease. Her Dragonstone does 3 times the damage to monsters, making her useful against Draco Zombies and other creatures.
Her initial stats are not much, but after leveling her up, she will prove to be very useful. However, the Dragonstone cannot be repaired by the Hammerne staff, so the player should try to save it for important battles.
A useful training technique is to have her go through the Tower of Valni and kill nothing but Entombeds. This gets her a huge amount of experience per kill and uses very few uses of her Dragonstone.
Something to take note of however is Myrrh is treated as a flying unit in The Sacred Stones. She may cross over terrain with no movement penalty, but is also susceptible to taking effective damage from enemy bowmen like Sniper and Bonewalker/Wight archers. But given her high defensive growths, this should prove less of a problem later on. She could alternatively be given the Fili Shield to negate this weakness, entirely.
“... I'm so sorry... I can't help you any longer.”
- Myrrh, the Great Dragon (無垢なる竜人 Mukunaru ryū-jin)
After bidding her farewells to Ephraim, she returned to Darkling Woods. She lived a long and full life, served by the people of Caer Pelyn and comforted by the memories of her dear friends.
- (A Support with Saleh)
Myrrh returned to Darkling Woods, but at Saleh's request, she eventually moved to Caer Pelyn, In time, the townsfolk learned to treat her not as the Great Dragon but rather as a normal girl, and she was happy.
- (A Support with Ephraim)
After the war, Ephraim returned to Renais and Myrrh to Darkling Woods. They both turned their attention to their respective duties but never forgot one another. Though Myrrh never again left Darkling Woods, Ephraim often visited her.
It is possible to have Myrrh use a monster's weapon (such as a Revenant's claw, a Bael's talon, a Mauthe Doog's fang, etc.) via the Enemy Control Glitch. Acquiring a Draco Zombie's weapon, Wretched Air, in this manner will result in the stat enhancements of the weapon being activated. Also, if the Demon Light and Ravager weapons are taken from Fomortiis via the Enemy Control Glitch, Myrrh can use them, but Nightmare can only be used by Fomortiis.
You can also restore her Dragonstone in this manner. See more details on this page.

'Myrrh' possibly takes her name from the reddish-brown resinous material collected from the dried sap of certain trees, which can be related to her origins from Darkling Woods. The name is derived from the Greek myth of Myrrha, the mother of Adonis who was turned into a tree by the gods as punishment for seducing her father.
- Using the Enemy Control Glitch you can gain the enemy only monster weapons. Myrrh can use them, but no animation is displayed. Monsters can also use her with Dragonstone with no animation as well.
- Myrrh is the first playable female manakete to not be a Divine Dragon.
- Myrrh and Morva's species of Manakete is unexplained and seems to be entirely unique. Her Dragonstone is different from all other manaketes in the GBA series.
- In the beta she seems to have had purple eyes instead of crimson.
