Last week, it was revealed that Fire Emblem Fates will allow you to enter into same-sex marriages. Little was known at the time, other than your ability to do so with be limited by your choice of game. In Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, a female avatar can marry one of the female characters, while in Conquest, a male avatar can marry one of the male characters. We now know, however, who these mysterious characters are and more about their personalities!
For those playing Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, your female avatar will be able to marry Shara. Shara is the child of Tsukiyomi, who first appears in Chapter 8. For those who have played Fire Emblem Awakening, Shara may seem familiar, as her personality and appearance resembles that of Tharja. She is very blunt and even turns to stalking those she thinks are compatible with her. Meanwhile, if Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest is more your style, your option for a same-sex marriage is Zero. A former thief, Zero is known for being sadistic and loves to see other people suffer. Zero is not the child of another unit.
In addition to being found in their respective games, both characters will be available to romance in the third, downloadable campaign. It’s also worth noting that Shara and Zero are bisexual, so they can still marry characters of the other gender. Will you be going for either of these romance options, or does another character catch you eye instead?
