Personality[edit | edit source]
Passionate and quick to anger, Edea is a tomboy with a strong sense of justice. Her "black and white" world view leads her to condemn those she considers evil. Raised in the duchy and its anti-crystalist views, Edea spent most of her time training under Kamiizumi who taught her respect and honor when dealing with allies and foes alike. When Edea witnesses the atrocities committed by the Sky Knights she wants to see the truth of the world with her own eyes. By Bravely Second, Edea has matured. Edea loves food, especially sweets, but the food she cooks tends to be unorthodox.
Story[edit | edit source]
Edea was born around the time that her father led the Anti-Crystalists against the Crystal Orthodoxy and established the Duchy of Eternia. She was trained by Nobutsuna Kamiizumi in the way of combat and attempted to win her father's respect. At age 10, Edea and Alternis Dim attempted to hunt down an "abominable snowman", which was revealed to be a runaway Golem, and nearly got herself killed. She was saved by Barras Lehr who teased her for fainting at the sight of his face. When she came to at a camp he took the kids to spend a night before returning them home.
Receiving her katana Ise-no-Kami from Kamiizumi as his way of blessing her new status, Edea is deployed as a member of the Sky Knights to head to Caldisla to capture the wind vestal Agnès Oblige. While accompanying Ominas Crowe Edea is disgusted with the Sky Knights' conduct in harming innocents to achieve their goal. When Ominas is willing to kill their own men to kill Agnès, Tiz Arrior, and Ringabel Edea chooses to aid the trio and wins their trust while dealing with Ringabel's advances.
Once her betrayal is brought to light, Edea continues to fight her fellow countrymen despite Alternis making attempts to secure her. While in Eternia she confronts her father and the ensuing fight results in Braev Lee being wounded to the point he would no longer be able to use a sword. After the crystals are awakened, the group battles Alternis who attempts to stop them from "destroying the world" under Braev's orders. After the party defeated him, Edea is shocked to witness Alternis's exposed face being identical to Ringabel's before he fell over the railings of Grandship.
After restoring the crystals in several worlds, Edea learns Ringabel is the Alternis of another world who ended up in her original home after being knocked off Grandship while it was stationed in the Holy Pillar. Ringabel later offers to take her to a restaurant in Florem for a romantic dinner, but she turns him down. When he affirms his offer is genuine, she responds that she knows it and appreciates it because it was genuine, but still turned him down.
After Ouroboros's defeat Edea returns to Eternia and is reunited with her parents while hugging a healthy Mahzer. She arrives to the chamber of the Council of Six, vowing to make her father's ideals come true as she is promoted to captain of the ducal guard.
Edea became good friends with Agnès and Tiz when they saved the world together in their last adventure. Edea may be hot-tempered, but she has a heart of gold.
In the aftermath of Ouroboros's destruction, while carrying Ringabel's journal on her person, Edea helps rebuild her country as the knights-captain of the Eternian Ducal Guard. She also works with Agnès in achieving peace between the Duchy and the Orthodoxy. Upon hearing of Agnès's kidnapping, she heads off on her own to the various towns of Eternia in the hopes of learning more about the situation. She comes across Yew Geneolgia being attacked by Bella, saving him. The two are later joined by Magnolia Arch and Tiz to rescue Agnès from the Glanz Empire.
Edea and the others use the SP Hourglass to stop Denys Geneolgia from kidnapping Agnès as well as the threat posed by the Glanz Empire. Afterward she is approached by her father who wishes her to succeed him as Grand Marshall of the duchy by testing what she considers to be the best traits of a leader. Once Edea passes the test, Braev retires to the Yulyana Woods Needleworks while Edea oversees the peace between the Orthodoxy and the duchy.
In one reality of Luxendarc affected by Airy accessing the Holy Pillar, Edea's search for a missing Agnès resulted in her being transported 200 years into a future where Luxendarc is no more with the continent Crystalica in its place. Taking on her friend's surname, Edea Lee Oblige becomes the wind vestal for the country of Windian in hopes to find her friend.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Edea has balanced stats yet leans towards physical classes as her high strength and defense make her perfect for Knight, Monk or Templar. She suffers from poor magic stats and agility, but her MP is fairly good and her HP is tied with Ringabel.

English[edit | edit source]
- Ah..On that day, a baby bird flapped its wings.
- 『lalalalalalala… lalalalalalala…』
- When have I believed? As a mere child without a doubt in the world.
- Why do I love? - Because of those dear who raised me.
- For the first time I kicked off from the ground towards the sky, I trembled alone.
- Black or White? What is the right thing to do? I want to ascertain it for myself
- Where was I bound? In a shell I could not break on my own.
- What I am looking for? Something to believe in despite the pain.
- I looked behind I home I've left, seeing the wind dancing in a sky while trembling with freedom.
- Black or White? Who is in the right? I want to seek for myself.
- I understand that justice overflows in the world yet the conflicted repeatedly battle each other.
- Black or White...Not just one thing...yet still indivisible.
- Yet, I want to choose my own path in even a world of pure grey.
- Black or White? No matter how long the nights are, I will never give up.
- Black and White, Right now I'll live for the now.
- Because I want to protect the world, I'll amass all my Bravery and fight!
- It was that day when a baby bird flapped her wings towards the endless sky.
- With the wind flowing under her wings, she now heads towards the unseen horizon.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
"Edea" is a female name with French and Australian origins. It may also be derived from Greek mythology, specifically from "Medeia" (Latinised as "Medea") who was a sorceress; her name also means "cunning".
Lee is an English name derived from Old English leah for "clearing; meadow". Li is the pinyin and Wade–Giles romanization (spelled Lí, Lǐ, or Lì when pinyin tone diacritics are used) of several distinct Chinese surnames that are written with different characters in Chinese. Lee is also the typical romanization of the common South Korean surname I (Hangul 이) and North Korean surname Ri (리).
In Bravely Default, Edea's name is word play on "Ideally".
