“Being family allows you to forgive some things you couldn’t otherwise. Though I understand it also makes other things unforgivable.”
—Palla in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Palla (Paula in the Italian version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem Gaiden, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and their remakes. She is 23 years old in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

ProfileEdit

Palla is the eldest sister of Catria and Est, and raised them after their parents died. Loyal to Princess Minerva of Macedon, she was part of the Whitewings, an elite Pegasus squad from Macedon. The Whitewings wanted to join the Altean army alongside Minerva, but when Prince Michalis heard this, he locked his and Minerva's younger sister Maria, in jail to prevent Minerva and the sisters from turning on him. When Marth eventually rescued Maria, Palla and her sister Catria set off to look for Marth and Minerva. When they found them, they joined the Altean army. During the war, Palla developed a crush on Abel.

In Fire Emblem Gaiden, Palla and Catria journeyed to Zofia in search of the kidnapped Est, eventually joining with Celica's army to help them save Est and to aid Celica on her journey.

In Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, a rebellion against Minerva's rule broke out in Macedon and Palla was forced to flee, meeting up with Julian and learning that Lena and Maria were captured by Gharnef. She joined Marth's army in order to save Minerva and Maria. After the war, she pushed aside her feelings for Abel and continued serving Macedon.

PersonalityEdit

As the elder sister of the three Whitewings from Archanea, Palla is mild-mannered and down to earth, always caring about her sisters. However, she also has a stubborn side and absolutely will not budge after a decision is made.

Palla has lingering feelings for Abel, and as such, refuses to find another lover on the request of Est with the excuse that the happiness of her sister (and to an extent, Abel) comes first, and also states in a base conversation that she refuses to admit her true feelings for this reason.

OverallEdit

Palla, and her sisters Catria and Est, are all Pegasus Knights recruited in Celica's route. When considering all of the Pegasus Knights in Gaiden, Palla is strong and durable but slow for a Pegasus Knight. Catria and Est are both strong all rounders whose balance between Speed and Strength usually makes them the most offensively potent, and Clair is very agile but fragile.

Although all 3 Pegasus Knight sisters are good units, Palla will likely wind up the weakest of the three if you choose to level all of them. Palla joins at the same time as Catria, and although she starts 3 levels above her sister, Catria actually starts out significantly stronger in most stats. When she closes the 3 level gap, the only stat Palla is likely to have more of is HP, and it is the only stat she is likely to beat her sisters at in the long run. By the late game, she will end up with a few more points of Strength and Defense than Catria, but Catria will blow her away in every other stat. While Est will statistically beat Palla in everything but HP, she does have the drawback of late recruitment and starting at a low level, meaning that Palla's early availability may prove to be of more use than Est's statistical superiority. Palla unfortunately has no way to fix her very poor Speed, which is the main thing that holds her back. Her Promotion to Falcon Knight doesn't fix the problem as the class has a low base speed of 5.

In all, Palla is still a good unit. She can tank decently well, still benefits from great mobility that ignores terrain, and does good damage due to her high Strength. However, where her sisters will probably Double Attack everything they encounter, Palla will have a lot more trouble doing so, particularly later in the game.

(Palla will leave the party if the player moves towards the Earth Mother's Shrine, however can be recruited again in the mountain village.)

Overall Edit

Palla has some of the highest base stats of any unit in the entire game, despite joining as obscenely early as Chapter 3. She also joins at level 10, ripe for an immediate promotion into the Dracoknight, which is almost indisputably the best class in the entire game. Although many people choose not to use her because of her low speed growth, they often fail to take into account that she is only 4 points away from the speed cap at base, and will average capped speed naturally as a Dracoknight even if promoted immediately (and this is not taking into account the potential she has for starshard abuse). Her base weapon level means that at join time, she'll be able to wield virtually every single lance in the game, and in conjunction with her 10 flying movement on promotion, she'll prove to be easily one of your strongest units.

OverallEdit

Palla has stiff competition with her younger sister Catria, who has a higher growth rate in speed, as a considerably higher growth rate in luck, and no shabby stats across the board. However, Palla is has higher base stats and weapon ranks out of the gate, which is extremely important when it comes to fast paced play. As such, on extremely high paced play, Palla is generally better than Catria. In addition, since Caeda's effectiveness is greatly neutered in LTC and zero growth runs, Palla will be an excellent addition to your team. If you are playing at a more modest pace though (anything less than an extreme pace or a zero growth run), Catria and most other possible Pegasus Knights or Dracoknights will generally do better in the long run. She also generally does not have an overflow of speed, and thus does not have to worry about the low speed cap of the Dracoknight class, whereas Catria or Caeda would rather reclass into a Paladin, Swordmaster, or Sniper for that higher speed cap if required.

Overall, Palla has some key disadvantages over her younger sister Catria, but has enough to distinguish herself as a Dracoknight in regular play. However, in fast paced and zero growth runs, Palla will be a near essential flier in the mid to end game that will perform very well.

Palla joins as one of the strongest units in the game. Starting in Chapter 3, she is capable of wielding Silver Lances and easily makes ruin of most enemies early on in the game. She also joins at level 10 in a chapter which contains a Master Seal, making her a prime candidate for an optional early promotion. While on the game's higher difficulties, she'll often find herself slightly less capable than Catria in the near endgame due to the low speed growth she possesses, her amazing base speed prevents this from being too much of an issue (and even then, this is excluding just how many statboosters the player receives in New Mystery). Overall, Palla's fantastic base stats, solid growth rates, and early access to Silver Lances make her a standout unit on any difficulty.

Overall Edit

Palla is an extremely polarizing unit in Echoes. She has some good bases for her join time, with higher strength than Catria but with slightly lower speed. Also, her growths are extremely different than what is normal for a Pegasus Knight. With 60% strength, she will hit very hard and utterly destroy monsters, and with 45% defense, she will start to become a monster tank, but will not be able to tank much else, thanks to her base 6 defense. However, her speed growth is a mediocre 30%. This means she will not be doubling much at all, perhaps even monsters. But, this means she will be a great user of the Saunion and weapon arts, which is usually overlooked due to the fact weapon arts cannot double (aside from a select few). As such, Palla fills a very niche role as a potential ranged physical nuke or a weapon arts abuser. She is very effective at this, and this is not even including the fact that she has the Triangle Attack with her sisters, Catria and Est, as well as get support bonuses from them. Of course, you could just throw on a Blessed Lance and call it a day. However, you would be sacrificing her specialty, and she will be inferior than all other Pegasus Knights if you do so. In the end, Palla requires some investment to use properly, but can be very effective at her specific niche.
