School has been quite the fickle mistress this past month, and I’ve felt bad for leaving you guys in the dark for a while. So to make up for it, I decided to dust off the photos I’ve had saved for a while and bring another addition of looking into roles voice actors of Fire Emblem characters have done.
And what better way to do so than to look at the woman who gave the voice of the iconic and lovely Lucina, laura Bailey.
Laura Bailey has made quite the resume for herself, lending her voice to some of gamings and animes most well known characters.
For starters she’s lent her voice to two characters in the most famous anime to exist, Dragonball Z.
Trunks and Gotenks.
It’s enough to voice just one Dragonball character, but two? Now that is some major bragging rights.
And her run in anime doesn’t stop there. She also voiced
a young Suzaku in Code Geass and
Mako from Soul Eater.
And as if that’s not enough, she also voiced
Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist.
Young boys, young girls and full grown woman- that’s quite the vocal range for one person.
And she’s also garnered herself quite the lineup of video game roles.
Catwoman from Batman the Telltale Series, who is the last person I expected to voice.
And another role I didn’t know she did was
Chiyo from Fragile Dreams Farewell Ruins to the Moon. You know, the little ghost girl who kept asking you to get her sh*t?
And in Blazblue she voiced
Platinum the Trinity.
She also voiced
Serah from Final Fantasy 13, but I’m not sure how much rejuvination that earns given the games reputation.
Now these last four are especially special, as these characters are well beloved not only in their series, but in gaming in general.
Those four being
Blaze the cat from the Sonic series
Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4 (and I’m not aware if she also voices her in the anime, I haven’t gotten around to watching it)
Chun Li from Street Fighter
and Catherine from, well, Catherine.
Can I just say how much i was shocked to find this out? The same person who voices a caring yet fragile princess from the future also voices a succubus whose working with a demonic force to seduce men into cheating so they can torment them with nightmares until they die? I know it’s been a while since I played Catherine, but I never noticed this at any point. I swear, these things just know how to surprise me.
I can’t blame Laura Bailey for being so well known, especially given the line up I’ve listed, along the many others I couldn’t get around to.
And hopefully she can continue to keep her mark in the world of voice acting.
Giriko states that he passed his soul down through his offspring which he implied he made stronger each generation. This means he was selectively breeding for stronger and healthier children to take over with his own soul. Because he would have been an adult (or at the least, a teenager) before making the giant golem Arachne’s soul was hiding in, this meant that sometime around 1204, he had already figured out the basics of modern genetics, over six hundred and fifty years before Gregor Mendell did.
That’s in addition to him not only being the first Demon Weapon, but how he was also the inventor of golems, and staying hidden from the DWMA for 800 years. During those 800 years he became a master of hand to hand combat and incredibly competent fighter even against those trained to specifically deal with threats like him all while protecting Lady Arachne’s soul in the golem from unavoidable threats like plague and the World Wars that wrecked havoc on and around the area they lived in.
While he’s a violent drunk, misogynistic pig, and not the most clever socially, Giriko is a fucking genius.
