Elincia and Lucia in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Elincia and Lucia are two playable characters in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. They have a very close bond, as Lucia serves as Elincia’s adviser after the events of Path of Radiance. In Radiant Dawn, Lucia’s generic ending has the following text:

Tireless Advisor (女王の姉妹 Joō no shimai, lit. Sister of the Queen)

Where the queen went, Lucia followed. Their love was fabled to be stronger than even most blood sisters.

Fans have read this queerly, and we are unaware of what the original Japanese text says, so if you know, please feel free to contact us. However, because of their deep bond and the usage of “love” in Lucia’s ending, as well as the fact that Lucia can also have a paired ending with Bastian, we have classified Lucia as Bisexual Implicit and Elincia as Lesbian Implicit.
