“Who're you calling a kid!? You're the kid! Fine, I'm going. I never wanted to come here anyway. Hmph!”
—Tanya to Orsin
Tanya (タニア Tania) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is the eighteen-year-old daughter of Dagdar. She is a tomboy who grew up among brigands and talks as such. She regularly quarrels with Orsin, although they truly care about each other deeply. She also thinks that Orsin is overly mean towards her and becomes upset when he calls her a kid and an idiot. It is implied in both her and Orsin's endings that they marry each other and have many children together.

Tanya is the closest thing Thracia 776 has to a standard Archer. She competes with Ronan for the job of being the party's earlygame archer, and initially might seem to have less longterm potential than Ronan, due to his superior movement, build, and skillset. Tanya, however, has much more reasonable growths than Ronan does. Overall, Tanya has generally better stats and a mutual Orsin support, but Ronan has the Adept skill and three movement stars, so both of them have a reason to see use. Should the player elect to use neither, there are still two suitable replacement archers down the line. A mounted archer, Robert, will join the party during Chapter 9, and can potentially serve as a replacement to her if the player is willing to overlook his terrible weapon rank. Near the end of the game, the player might get Xavier, a general who starts with decent stats, has decent growths, and can wield A rank bows immediately. Xavier is notoriously difficult to recruit, however, so first time players might want to use Tanya for their archery needs.
Regardless of how Tanya turns out, however, she will always have an extremely useful support with Orsin, one of the units best equipped to benefit from such a boost. Tanya is the only unit, other than Eyvel, who can support Orsin, so Tanya's support is particularly invaluable to him. If the player has space in his or her roster, it might be worth it to field Tanya, just to make Orsin that much more effective.
