Cynthia is an excitable Pegasus Knight in Fire Emblem: Awakening and the future daughter of Sumia. Like her mother, she is extraordinarily clumsy and prone to tripping over nothing. She's also filled with bravado and dreams of being an epic hero like her mother, though the tales of her mother's exploits she was apparently raised on horrify Sumia as they hardly match her personality at all.
Because Chrom and Sumia can marry, Cynthia can be Lucina's younger sister. During their support conversations together, it is revealed that Cynthia is frightened by bugs; a trait that Lucina scolds her for until she too sees the bug that Cynthia ran from, at which point they both begin to panic.
Later, Lucina finds Cynthia using Falchion to slice an apple and scolds her again, this time for using the sacred blade for such a menial purpose. But then she begins to wonder if Cynthia might have the ability to wield Falchion as well, and proposes testing her skill with it. Her reasoning is that if she dies, then Cynthia might be able to take up the sword in her place. Cynthia, however, becomes upset at the idea of wielding the sword if Lucina dies and runs off in a huff.
Cynthia eventually returns after thinking the matter over and asks if she can try Falchion. Lucina agrees to let her try and sets up a simple test. If Cynthia's exalted blood has granted her the ability to wield Falchion, then she should be able to split a log in two with it. But if not, then she won't be able to even damage the bark. Cynthia takes a swing, but fails to cut the log. Lucina moves to console Cynthia, but Cynthia begins to laugh; she had missed the log completely. The sisters both have a good laugh at this, as they had become so worked up by the thought of Cynthia taking up Falchion if Lucina died that they had lost sight of the simpler things, like freaking out over large bugs.
After Lucina wanders off, Cynthia decides to take another swing, but once again fails to cut the log. Having failed the test, she decides not to worry about it any longer and wanders off. But some time later, Chrom walks by and notices the log. When he examines it, he marvels, having never seen a log cut so cleanly in two before.
She has the preassigned skills, Speed + 2 and Relief.
