Altena is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War who makes several minor appearances in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is the daughter of Quan and Ethlyn, as well as the older sister of Leif. Being a direct descendant of Crusader Njörun, she inherited the ability to wield the Gáe Bolg from Quan. She is also a descendant of Crusader Baldr from her mother's side. In addition, she is the granddaughter of Calf, Alfiona, and Byron, the niece of Sigurd, and a cousin of Seliph. Altena is a kindhearted and strong-willed woman who shares her mother's brazen nature. Unlike Arion, she is unwilling to go to any length to fulfill Travant's orders and instead openly opposes him at times. Coruta describes Altena as being "too soft". It is stated that she has always been there for Coirpre like a mother. She shares a close bond with Arion, and is very reluctant to fight against him, even after learning the truth about her heritage. In her conversation with Finn in Chapter 9, it is revealed that Altena always desired to have his attention during her early childhood.
