More about Corrin:
Corrin was born to Queen Mikoto and King Sumeragi of the Hoshidan royal family. They are the half-sibling to the prominent characters like Takumi, Sakura, Ryoma, and Hinoka, sharing a father but having different mothers. In their early childhood, due to a ploy by king Garron, Sumeragi was murdered, and Corrin kidnapped and spirited away to the Kingdom of Nohr, where they were raised as a child of the royal family alongside their adopted siblings Camilla, Xander, Elise, and Leo.
Corrin was all but a prisoner at the Northern Fortress, unable to set foot outside until king Garron considered them worthy. They were doted upon by all the siblings, by Camilla most of all. Xander taught them how to fight, and others also frequently visited them in the Fortress.
This status quo would soon change when an inevitable war between Hoshido and Nohr would require Corrin to make a tough choice between his birthright or the family that raised them. Or maybe, they can remain neutral to try to avert the greater calamity looming over their heads.
Corrin, of royal lineage by birth, possesses the blood of the First Dragons and therefore is able to use the ability called Dragon Vein. This powerful skill allows them not only to alter the whole landscape of the map but also to transfigure themselves into a mighty dragon. Previously, this transformation was thought to be exclusive to those of a Manakete class.
Personality-wise, Corrin is extremely kind, if somewhat naïve and trusting. The former makes them very likable and gain them allies, while the latter almost costs them their life, as the Fire Emblem Fates is chock full of characters waiting to exploit others naïveté.
Much like Fire Emblem Awakening protagonist Robin, Corrin made their debut in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (albeit via a DLC), where they were considered a high-tier character. They’ve been heavily nerfed with the release of Ultimate, but the subsequent patches allowed them to gain some ground. Overall, Corrin has decent airspeed and a good arsenal of moves but lacks mobility and recovery options.
