      "lucina is probably the best fire emblem awakening character in terms of depth and skill. seriously, leading a group of time traveling children to save their families in the future? she is also one of the strongest characters in the game! access to the pegasus knight class, a sword with infinite durability, AND she isn't a compulsory unit? YES PLEASE!"

      "okay, let me be straight here: she's an okay character with the right amount of cute stalker. my issue with her though is she doesn't have much of a backstory (not as deep as the other plegian dark mage) and her outfit. obviously the fanservice character that every japanese game has to have."
