Fire Emblem: Engage is less than 10 days from its release date, but Nintendo is continuing its various character introductions. The latest character introduced for Fire Emblem Engage is Goldmary (or Goldmari). She’s voiced by Natsumi Takamori, who also played Hibana in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Miku Maekawa in [email protected] Cinderella Girls, and Raiha in The Quintessential Quintuplets.

Goldmary is a Royal Knight of Elusia, a kingdom in Fire Emblem Engage‘s world of Elyos. It is ruled by King Hyacinth and the first Princess Ivy, who appeared in an earlier trailer mounting an attack on Brodia. Goldmary is a retainer to Elusia’s second Princess, Hortensia. She’s described as “shy” and somewhat timid in manner, but in speech can be quite assertive, showing no lack of self-confidence. This is demonstrated in a brief conversation with fellow retainer Rosado.

In the clip, Rosado declares to Goldmary that between the two of them, Rosado’s “clearly” the cuter, but still stands to lose on grounds of Goldmary’s superior cooking. Thus, Rosado demands that Goldmary teach him, the better to improve his skills. Goldmary responds that she thinks she’s the cuter one, frankly. Rosado offers to concede if she’ll agree to give some cooking lessons. Goldmary remarks that the attitude Rosado displays is unbecoming of someone in need of help, but decides to teach him anyway, “as a friend.”

In Fire Emblem Engage, Goldmary starts as part of the Hero (or “Brave Hero”) class. An evolved form of the Mercenary class, Heroes are typically strong physical infantry units that specialize in using Axes and Swords in combat. However, a clip demonstrating Goldmary’s combat prowess in Fire Emblem Engage shows her throwing a lance at range to take out an enemy standing atop a tower. The description states that Hero units take advantage of their battlefield prowess to dominate the front lines “with a variety of weapons.”

Fire Emblem Engage launches for the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023. Check out Siliconera’s preview of the game.
