In Fire Emblem Engage, Jade is a royal knight from the nation of Brodia, a militaristic kingdom led by the character Morion the Conquerer. Jade is a retainer to Diamant, Brodia’s crown prince and one of Fire Emblem Engage‘s Lord-class characters. Jade is described as calm and level-headed, taking her duties seriously. Her general reticence makes people think she’s cold-hearted, but she enjoys cheery things and good humor. Jade meditates when confronted with a problem.

Check out a clip from Fire Emblem Engage of Jade in conversation with Amber, who was introduced earlier.

In the clip, Jade asks Amber to tell her more stories, as she intends to use them as a reference for a novel that she’s writing. Amber obliges, boasting about his prowess riding alpacas. Unfortunately, a live demonstration isn’t possible, as alpacas don’t live in the current area.

Jade starts the game in the fortified “Axe Armor” class. The Axe Armor is described as a “heavily armored infantry unit that wields an axe.” Axe Armors have high defense ratings, but are vulnerable to magical damage. The demo clip shows Jade in heavy armor, with a shield and one-handed battle axe.

Fire Emblem Engage launches on the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023. Pre-orders are open.
