Jill and Mist are two characters from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Both characters are given possible supports with men that are romantic in nature, as one person who emailed us pointed out, but during their A-rank conversation (the usual max of support conversation ranks for non-romantic relationships), the two exchange dialogue that could be perceived as a potential WLW relationship (found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86NMRWU9EVQ):
“Mist… You make all of my worries go away when you’re near me… The world is hard. Hard and cold and… terrible. Even so, you make me… You make me want to keep going.”
As the person who emailed us also mentioned, it’s worth noting that it’s possible for Jill to defect to the enemy forces to join her father if she speaks to him in one chapter; however, this defection won’t be possible if she’s had her A rank support with Mist (or reached a B rank support with Lethe in which she is taught the history of oppression of laguz people by the Daein army her father fights for). Additionally, the sequel expands a previously mostly-unused mechanic called Support Bonds, which act as a pre-existing relationship between characters. Generally speaking, characters will have 10% support bonds with family, and 5% with people they are otherwise close to. One of Mist’s three 5% supports is Jill.
In the sequel to Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, in Chapter 3-7, Jill does not attack Haar (her possible romance in the game), but also will not attack Mist if their A-rank Support is imported and vice-versa.
