“So...you've made it through the blizzard. Congratulations. Unfortunately, the only prize that awaits you is death.”
Sigune (alternatively translated Sigurne and Sigurney in the fan translations), is the boss of Chapter 19A: Bitter Cold in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is the flightleader of the Pegasus Knights who have turned to Bern, and plans to use Ilia's harsh climate to ambush Roy and attack him. According to an Ilian villager in Carrhae, she is known as "The White Devil." If she fights Thea or Shanna, she will not go easy on them as said in the Ilian knightly code.
Sigune's stats are extremely well rounded and her weapon is potent, but a combination of factors make her far too easy to defeat. Her impressive movement and flight are wasted on a stationary boss, and her flight prevents her from taking full advantage of the gate on which she is stationed. Like most of Ilia's Pegasus Knights and Falcon Knights, she rides into battle over-encumbered, her spear slowing down her attack speed by a full three points. Most well-trained bow units will have no trouble plowing right through her, especially if they are armed with a Brave Bow or have enough speed to double her, though doubling her might be a difficult prospect on hard mode.
Sigune: You... You're Juno's youngest sister. You would fight me?
Sigune: By the honor of an Ilian knight... I won't go easy on you. All right?
Sigune: Thea? What are you doing here? Oh...you've joined the Etrurian side.
Thea: Captain Sigune...
Sigune: You know the Ilian knightly code. I won't go easy on you.
“...Dear me... I didn't anticipate perishing here... But perhaps...I was already dead... Perhaps I died..a long...time ago...”
