— Amelia in Chapter 9
Amelia (Japanese: アメリア Amelia) is an orphan who appears in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. She joins the Grado army to serve her country, but is inexperienced in combat. The turmoils of war lead her to question her allegiance.
In Eirika's route, Amelia appears again in Chapter 9, where she is among a group of Grado soldiers sent to arrest Eirika. If Eirika or Franz talks to her, Amelia realizes that Eirika is a caring individual, and defects to her side. She then accompanies Eirika for the rest of the journey. If no one talks to her and she survives, Amelia will leave the battlefield after a set number of turns.
In Ephraim's route, Amelia appears in Chapter 9, serving at Fort Rigwald under the command of general Gheb. When she hears Gheb insulting some of his soldiers, she speaks out, and gets put on the front lines as punishment. If either Ephraim or Franz speaks to Amelia, they comment the fact that she is a new soldier and convince her to join their side. She then joins Ephraim's party and accompanies him for the rest of the journey.
Amelia is one of three trainee characters who starts out very weak, but ends up very strong due to high growth rates and a long time to train. Trainee characters are weak at first but gain experience quickly, and upon reaching level 10 can choose between two classes. After this, they can promote again starting at level 10. This means that they have 10 extra levels to gain stats, and coupled with high growth rates, they make very good units. These are exclusive to The Sacred Stones; the other two trainees are Ross and Ewan.

Promotion stat gains
- Note: Recruit (2) refers to the promotion option that is unlocked after beating both Eirika's and Ephraim's routes; this promotion option is named "Recruit" and keeps the qualities of the Recruit class.
|General||+3||+2||+3||+2||+0||+3||+3||+1||+1||Great Shield||E, +40, E|
|Great Knight||+3||+1||+1||+2||+0||+2||+2||+0||+2||--||E, D|
From Recruit (2)
As a trainee unit, Amelia has very low base stats regardless of the route she's recruited in, and also has mediocre growth rates. As a result, Amelia would often get doubled or even killed in one hit by normal enemies as a result of her low stats. Amelia also has low constitution, only being able to use the Slim Lance without suffering any speed penalties.
However, since Amelia is a Trainee unit, she gains more experience than most other units. Amelia also automatically promotes at the beginning of the next map once she reaches level 10. Allowing her to promote into one or three different classes: the Cavalier, Knight, or the Super Trainee (after both Eirika and Ephraim's routes have been completed).
Promoting her into a Cavalier gives her a significant +3 in movement along with +2 in speed and con. Amelia also gains the ability to use swords. With these promotion gains, Amelia is able to use iron weapons unimpeded as well as having access to Canto. Upon a second promotion, Amelia is able to promote into either Great Knight or Paladin. Both classes have good promotion bonuses, with the Great Knight class even allowing her to wield Axes. Some people prefer promoting her in to a Paladin due to her gaining +1 movement, but both options are equally worth considering.
As a Knight, Amelia gains no movement, but does get +4 in con, along with +2 in HP and defense. However, Amelia can only use lances and could still get doubled easily. Upon promoting from Knight, Amelia could promote into General or Great Knight. Compared to a Great Knight, Amelia gains higher stat bonuses, but has less movement than the Great Knight and lacks Canto. Some prefer Great Knight for that reason.
Overall, Amelia is one of the weaker units in The Sacred Stones due to her horrible bases making it hard for players to use her without grinding. While her higher experience gain makes training her quick, there are still better units that could be used instead of her.

Personality and character
Amelia is a cheerful new soldier who does her best while fighting. As a new soldier, she sometimes trips and often shows signs of a poor fighting stance, but she tries to practice whenever she can. According to her conversations with Neimi, she became a soldier because she wanted to become stronger, instead of having others always defending her. To Franz, she says she decided to fight because she was alone and wanted to protect those she cared about. She is very truthful and honest, stating what she believes is true and her inner feelings to others. Amelia believes that the soldiers of armies are people and not just slaves and pawns. Overall, she is quite friendly and optimistic.
Amelia is a girl from the town of Silva, in Grado. Her father died or left when Amelia was very young; she has no memories of him. She has no siblings or other family. When she was a child, her mother, named Melina, was captured by bandits as Amelia, able to do nothing, hid from them. This motivated her to become a soldier, along with a desire to honor General Duessel and the country. In the village in Chapter 5, she declares that she will become the finest soldier of Grado. She has pride in her country, but when she is recruited in either route, she realizes that her superiors have been lying to her.
In her conversations with Duessel, he states that she looks very familiar. This is because of her mother, Melina. Duessel found Amelia's mother as an amnesiac captive of a group of bandits. They rescued her and placed her in a quite village to help her restore her health. After regaining her health, she began to remember her old life, but when they went to Silva, Amelia had already left. Amelia's mother is still alive in the game's present time, and presumably, after the war is over they reunite.
