Rubicus[edit | edit source]

Once a cadet and now a tribune, Emina works as a commanding officer in Akademeia--even though she does not currently lead a class of her own. She excels in both the military and scholastic arts, and her bright, friendly demeanor has won her the admiration of both men and women around Akademeia. (Her gorgeous good looks have also earned her a considerable amount of unwanted attention from men all over the dominion.) Rumor has it she is an avid connoisseur of bikinis, but none have ever seen her wearing any of the swimsuits in her allegedly enormous collection.

As an officer she wears a military uniform with shoulder, wrist and leg guards, and a cape. As a teacher, she wears a white blouse, brown worker's gloves, and high-waist black trousers and riding boots. According to the Rubicus, Emina is 25 years old and 5'6" tall. She is said to collect swimsuits, although nobody has seen her in one, but via the model viewer the player can view Emina in different swimwear; these scenes reveal she has a tattoo on her shoulder blade. In her concept art her bikini is pink with purple polka-dots, while in the game it's black.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Emina is an officer in command of the Agito Cadets at the Akademeia, and is popular among the students due to her bright and cheerful personality.

Final Fantasy Type-0[edit | edit source]

Emina teasing to take her clothes off to prove that she doesn't have an imperial tattoo.

Emina was a student of Akademeia, and was both a friend and classmate of Kurasame Susaya and Kazusa Futahito. After Kurasame's death, Emina and Kazusa use a device that lets people view memories of the past and those who have died. They witness themselves with Kurasame during their school days, but when Kazusa asks her who the third person is, Emina doesn't know.

Emina was a Militesi spy, indicated by a mark on her body, and everything about her is actually a front. Her original mission required her to infiltrate Rubrum to act as an assassin when called upon. However, her experiences at Akademeia caused her to give up her mission and the few officials from the Militesi Empire who were aware of the plan deemed it a failure when few disruptions appeared in Rubrum after several years.

Emina reveals her mysterious past.

When the truth behind her past is exposed, she thanks Class Zero. Soon afterward, in Caelusmens 842, Emina was captured under suspicion of being the Militesi spy and subject to the judgment of the military court. According to the Sorcery researcher, she returned to Milites and agreed to never return. According to the Rubicus she disappeared from Akademia without a trace. According to Director Hajime Tabata, being suspected of espionage, Emina likely could not avoid capital punishment.[1]

In the game's alternate ending, Nine is throwing lances in frustration because he was rejected by Emina, who is in a relationship with Izana.

Spoilers end here.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Emina is a rare feminine given name in Japan, meaning "eminent." The word emina also is a Latin word meaning "beloved," and is also a Turkish variation of the Arabic feminine given name Amina, which means "truthful" or "trustworthy."

Hanaharu derives from the Japanese words: (, hana?, lit. flower) and (, haru?, lit. spring season).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During her swimsuit events the player can hear Emina humming the game's main theme.
  • Emina was wearing a yellow-green mantle in the picture with Kazusa and Kurasame, suggesting that she was a member of Class Fifth while an Akademeia cadet.
