9. Eirika the Princess of Renais
The twin sis of prince Ephraim, Eirika benefits from her association with her social climbing bro, and because with the right team, her ability to shift people around on the battlefield is invaluable. Otherwise, though, Eirika’s mournful pout is best observed from a distant remove. Her slot is usually much better filled by a more conventional support character. Also, there’s something mildly off-putting about a girl who wears such beautifully enameled armor with a tiny school girl skirt. It's as if she was getting dressed for her medieval history lecture and then got suddenly summoned to a raging battlefield with only moments to change. She does have a pretty sick sword, though.
