Not to be confused with the Light Magic from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Thani.

“Yeah. I'm on a pegasus, see? I have a different movement pace than the others, so it's easier to fight on my own...”
—Shanna talking to Dieck in a support conversation.

Shanna (シャニー Shanī, Thany in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is a Pegasus Knight from Ilia and the younger sister of Juno and Thea. While her sisters are full-fledged Pegasus Knights, she is still in training. She joined Dieck's mercenary crew as part of her training. She used to address Dieck as "Chief", but he did not like that. She thinks that Lot has a crush on her, although he only cares about her as a little sister. Because of this, she calls him "Big Brother". She is also kinder to Lot than she is to Wade because she fights with the latter in their supports conversations.

She makes a brief cameo appearance in chapters 16 and 17 of the Hasha no Tsurugi manga.

In 聖火降魔錄英雄雲集, she is voiced by Nao Shiroki in the Japanese version and Marisha Ray in the English version.

Shanna is the player's first flying unit and thus is very useful for rescuing others and carrying them around the map. She has very high Skill, Speed, and Luck, but her HP, Defense, and Strength are quite lacking. Combined with her very low Con, her combat can be quite shaky, since she might be unable to deal much damage with Slim or Iron Lances, while using stronger lances may hamper her ability to double and dodge. As such, Shanna serves better as a utility unit than as a fighter. She can still be of use at taking out enemy sword users, and later axe users when she promotes. Her decent resistance makes her a better mage killer than most. Gant's Lance can be useful to her while leveling, due to its good might to weight ratio. Due to her low durability, bow users can often kill her in one hit, even late-game.

Thea is subjectively a better combat unit, especially in Hard Mode due to her stat boosts and more balanced growths. However, Shanna still has advantages of being recruited earlier and at a lower starting level, and having better Avoid. It is not a bad idea to use both, since having two fliers is useful for rescue chains and they can both support each other. Shanna supporting with Roy is also feasible if she rescues him often. This support could give her a much needed boost in attack and critical, though their differing Move hampers the usefulness of this pairing. Supporting with Dieck gives her a nice boost in Defense and critical.
