|When I fight for my father, no matter how terrible the foe, or how powerful... I know that I have no choice. I simply cannot lose."|
— Lucina, to the maleRobin
Lucina (Japanese: ルキナ Lucina) is a princess of Ylisse, the daughter of Prince Chrom and a distant descendant of the legendary Hero-King Marth. After her world fell to ruin at the hands of the Fell Dragon Grima in the future, she travelled back in time to save her father's life and avert the disastrous future whence she came. For a time she cloaked her identity as a traveller from the future under the guise of a mysterious warrior known only to others as Marth, taking the name from her famous ancestor, but later discarded this guise when she revealed her true nature to Chrom and joined his army, assisting him in conflicts with the Valmese Empire and the Grimleal.Lucina is one of three protagonists of Fire Emblem Awakening, alongside Chrom and Robin. She is also a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as one of six representatives of the Fire Emblem series.
