Lyndis, also more commonly known as Lyn, is one of the three main characters of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, the first Fire Emblem game to go international. From her humble origins in the plains, Lyn has been noted as a deep, caring, and kind-hearted soul. She rarely thinks ill of others and, despite the circumstances, always believes on the best of things. Lyn did make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl but as an Assist Trophy but she was not an actual character. She wields both the Mani Katti and the Sol Katti, twin legendary katanas. Lyn wields her Sol Katti with her right hand and the Mani Katti with her left.
Lyn is a lightweight character who is about the same size as Marth. She cannot wall cling nor can she crawl. She is faster than Marth, in both movement and attacks, but she weaker than Marth, in both attack strength and defense.
Lyn pulls out her bow and fires an arrow. Charging this move will result in her spinning the arrow in the air above her. When the charge is released or when the attack reaches full charge she will fire the arrow. This attack can be angled. The longer the charge the more damage and knockback it does and the farther the arrow will travel.
: Mani Strike
This is a chargeable move. When charging Lyn pulls her Mani Katti behind her creating three images of herself. When holding the charge, Lyn will continue to pull her sword up from behind her until it is by her face and pointed forwards. She will not move her Sol Katti but keep it pointing up and in front of her. When the charge is released, Lyn disappears in a flash traveling in a straight line. If she hits an enemy she will strike the opponent from behind. After the strike her momentum will push her away from the opponent but towards her starting position and she will still be facing in the same direction of when she started the move. If performed on the ground she will slide back, with the distance determined by how long she was charging. In the air this attack can be used as a recovering technique, however this attack will exhaust her. If she strikes an opponent in the air, the momentum direction will still be the same (so be careful). Damage and knockback is determined by how long Lyn was charging. This attack fully charged will travel about half the distance of FD.
: Sol Slash
Lyn points her Sol Katti down and behind her then slashes it upwards. If an opponent is hit by the first strike he will be sent directly upwards. She then disappears and quickly reappears right above where she performed the move. If you hit a smash command before she reappears she will perform an aerial attack right as she appears. After the final attack she will be exhausted.
Lyn quickly bends down low in a slanted fighting position. Her Mani Katti is wielded backwards with the blade parallel with her arm which is slanted downwards. Lyn's Sol Katti is up by her face pointed forwards. She will flash green for a second. If she is dealt damage when she is flashing green, Lyn will strike with both swords in the direction of the attack.
: Critical Strike
Somewhat like the Sol Katti Critical Strike except she strikes with both swords. Lyn points her Sol Katti down at the ground. Lyn's Mani Katti will be wielded backwards. When she points the Sol Katti downwards her image is split into five. She then disappears and rushes forward in a blaze of light. If any opponent is hit by the attack she will slice them six times with both swords. While this is happening the camera starts to move to view her and the one she hit from above. On the sixth his she disappears and images of herself can be seen all around the opponent flashing in and out. On the final hit the opponent will be launched with extreme damage and knockback and Lyn will freeze her position facing away from the opponent and with her swords drawn like she completed a slash.
