Nowi is a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening.
A Manakete from no land in particular. While she looks young and likes to play outside with children, She is actually over 1000 years old and counting. The biggest oversleeper.
Born on September 21st.
Born on another continent "across the ocean and way to the left," Nowi had been kidnapped right after she was born, and was separated from her parents. It is unknown what happened during the majority of her life, but at one point, she once met and befriended a wise, old Manakete that taught her several things.
Prior to the events of Awakening, she had been captured and sold as a slave from an auction block to some very despicable men, who made her transform for their entertainment, making her perform tricks. She was eventually targeted by the Grimleal, who sought to offer her as a sacrifice for Grima. However, she was saved by Gregor, who turned against his employers, though Nowi misinterpreted his attempts to help her and believed he was trying to kill her.
As she ran from him and her captors through the Border Sands, she and Gregor were found by Chrom and the Shepherds, who were marching to Plegia to rescue the captured Exalt Emmeryn. Upon seeing her in battle for the first time, the Avatar and Chrom are surprised when she shifts into her Manakete form. After dealing with the Grimleal and protecting them, Nowi and Gregor decide to join Chrom's army.
After the war, if Nowi is not married, she will try to live away from humans, but longed for their company so she embarked on a journey to find her old comrades. If she is married, people often whisper that her husband continued to age while she remained youthful.
