Nephenee is a supporting playable character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. She is a shy woman from the Crimean countryside that is never seen without her helmet on. Due to her thick country accent, she doesn't like talking to people from the city out of fear that they'll make fun of her, though this shyness mostly wears away in the three years between the events of Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
Nephenee is introduced in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance as a member of a Crimean militia unit that had been captured and imprisoned by Daein forces. Once freed, she follows Ike, Elincia, and the Greil Mercenaries on their journey to drive Daein out of Crimea and restore Princess Elincia to the throne. She joins as a spear-wielding soldier class unit with the potential to promote to the halberdier class, and is the first potential halberdier that the player receives. Nephenee also begins with the skill Wrath, which increases her chances of landing critical hits in combat when her Hit Points are below fifty percent. This trait, along with the combination of potentially high attack and defense that she can gain if leveled up and promoted, makes her a solid choice as a regular member of the active character roster.
Three years later, in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Nephenee is reintroduced in the second chapter of Part 2. Having discovered that someone is plotting a rebellion in a nearby Crimean village, she pulls fellow countryside resident Brom back into battle to stop the local uprising before it can start. Afterwards, she, Brom, and the rogue Heather travel to the Crimean capital to warn Queen Elincia about the rebellion and join in the fight to stop the rebel leader, Duke Ludveck. After the rebellion is put down for good, Nephenee eventually returns again in Part 3 and follows Ike and the Greil Mercenaries to assist the Laguz Alliance in the war against Begnion.
In Radiant Dawn, Nephenee begins the game as a halberdier with the potential to promote to sentinel. As in Path of Radiance, she maintains good all-around statistics that make her ideal as a regular character to bring into battle and remains so up through the end of the game.
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Nephenee can form support relationships with the knight Brom, fellow halberdier Devdan, and the sage Calill.
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
As with all other characters in Radiant Dawn, Nephenee can form a support relationship with any other playable character.
Fire Emblem: Awakening
Like many other past Fire Emblem characters, Nephenee is available as a SpotPass character in Fire Emblem: Awakening. Her starting class has been changed to knight, as Awakening does not feature the halberdier or sentinel classes. Like other DLC characters, Nephenee is unable to form support relationships.
