Fire Emblem Engage – Emblem Introduction: Micaiah (Emblem of Dawn)

Fire Emblem Engage features various characters from past Fire Emblem games, who are called Emblems. They appear in the form of Emblem Rings that Units can equip in order to get a stats boost, but also gain access to special skills and abilities. And in this post, we’re going to take a look at Micaiah, who is known as the Emblem of Dawn!

Here’s a video showcasing this Emblem in action:

The video above also shows part of a scene where Micaiah is seen talking with Vander and patiently listening to his worries.

Micaiah (voiced by Natsuko Kuwatani in Japanese) possesses mysterious powers: she can heal people, but also predict the future. Her magic and healing powers are without pair. Any Units equipping her Emblem Ring will be able to use Staves, regardless of their Fighting Style. This Emblem’s specialty: support and healing!

Her weapon, skills, and abilities are as follows:

  • Sync Skill: Staff User*. Allows Unit to use Staves regardless of their Fighting Style. Combined with Units with high mobility, like Cavalry, this Sync Skill will allow you to get access to some excellent healers.
  • Engage Weapon: Shine. After using Light magic, brightly illuminates your surroundings.
  • Engage Skill: Amplify*. Amplifies the range and effectiveness of Staves. Pretty useful for Units on support duty, as it allows them to heal allies from afar, but also block the movements of distant enemies.
  • Engage Attack: Great Healing Touch*. Unit exchanges some of their HP in order to completely heal nearby allies. Using it causes the Unit’s HP to drop to 1, so you need to be extra careful when using it… unless they have the “Dragon” Fighting Style, in which case they will be left with 30% of their HP!
