On December 4, , Marth's original Famicom game and the first installment in the Fire Emblem series was localized and released outside of Japan for the first time to commemorate the franchise's 30th anniversary. According to Kaga, though Marth takes a prominent role in the story, he is not technically the main protagonist. Due to hardware limitations, this and other similar scenes needed to be cut. The staff's main aim for the redesign was to make the character look and feel fresh while not straying too far from what fans had come to expect. This, along with other character redesigns featured in the game's DLC, was dubbed an "underworld" design.
Official artwork of Lucina from Fire Emblem Warriors. She is a distant descendant of Marth , and is the daughter of fellow protagonist Chrom. Lucina is a princess of the kingdom of Ylisse , the successor state to the now-ancient kingdom of Archanea, and is Chrom's daughter. She bears the holy bloodline of Ylisse's rulers, the exalts, who carry the power of the legendary dragon Naga and her holy gifts to humanity: the Fire Emblem and the blade Falchion ; this power is signified by the presence of a distinctive Brand on their bodies, with Lucina's being located in the iris of her left eye. The adult Lucina the game primarily features is a time-traveller from an alternate future, who travels back to the current timeline in Fire Emblem Awakening due to the fell dragon Grima and his legions of Risen zombies bringing her own world to ruin.
