“This one is called the Altar of the Queen. Worshipped and admired, she used her wit and will to fell mighty adversaries. Only a maiden awakened to her royal heritage may receive this boon.”
—Hermit explaining the Rigain class.

Rigain (メイヴ Meivu, Maeve) is a class that first appears in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It is an Overclass and functions as the promotion for the Princess class.


As an Overclass for the Princess class, it is exclusive to Celica. Aside from stat cap and growth increases, its only main benefit is giving Celica the ability to use the Aura spell. Otherwise it is functionally similar to her Princess class.

Rígain, or rígan, is Old Irish for "queen". The name may also be a reference to the Morrígan, a figure from Irish mythology associated with fate.

The original Japanese name, Maeve, likely refers to Queen Medb from Irish mythology.
