“A beautiful voice... It's crying out for me. It's saying, 'Help, help...'”
Sara (サラ Sara) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is a twelve-year-old mysterious girl with the ability to use the Kia Staff. She despises her grandfather, Manfroy, because he murdered her father for loving her mother before she was born.
Regardless of the route chosen after Chapter 15, Sara is encountered by Leif's army in either Chapter 16B or Chapter 17A. In the former, she hears Leif's voice calling out for her and leaves her residence alone to search for him. During this chapter, Salem can speak to Sara while she is still an enemy, which will unlock support bonuses between them.
In the ending, Sara quietly disappears, although the legends say that she lives a peaceful life under Leif's protection.
Sara has an unusual personality and a childish mindset. She often says strange things for others who pass by her. Due to her heritage, she is generally treated with great respect by the priests of the Loptyrian Cult, though they also seem to regard her as too odd to engage in normal conversation.

Despite joining fairly late at a low level, Sara is still very useful of a unit when you first receive her, considering she is the only character able to use the Kia Staff. She easily maxes Magic, Skill, and Speed. Sara is also one of the few characters to have 5 movement stars, meaning she will get a 2nd turn 25% of the time. She is also gifted with probably one of the best skill combinations in the game. She has Wrath, which allows her to always get a critical on counterattacks; Prayer, which increases her chance of avoiding lethal blows; and Elite, which doubles her EXP. She also gains Adept upon promotion.
However, Sara is not without weaknesses. She has very low HP and defense. Her avoid is very high, but if she does not dodge or Miracle does not activate, she is almost guaranteed to die. In order to patch up her durability, the Dain Scroll and Hezul Scroll can be given to her. The player can also use the Blaggi Scroll to help boost her luck (and thus the activation rate of Miracle) as quickly as possible.
As a healer, Sara starts off with an extremely high Staff rank of B. Since her staff rank is raised by 1 level when she promotes, she can essentially use all the powerful staves such as Warp, Rewarp, and Rescue with little investment put into her aside from a Knight Proof. This allows her to be a very useful healer in the lategame chapters, where staves are at their most useful. Her excellent Magic stat also lets her avoid most of the status staves in those maps.
