Since she’s a Mage, her base battle style will be Mystical, and mainly uses the Fire element. Read on through this guide to learn more about Citrinne, including her best class and skills.

How to recruit Citrinne in Fire Emblem Engage

Recruiting Citrinne in Fire Emblem Engage is a fairly simple process. You don’t really have to do anything for it, as she will be automatically recruited at one point in the game.

Citrinne will be recruited as part of your unit during the first battle of Chapter 7: Dark Emblem. At the start of this chapter, you will find yourself in Brodia. Whilst you are in this kingdom, you meet with Lapis, Alcryst, and Citrinne.

Alcryst first mistakes you for bandits, but realizes later on and apologizes. As you make your way along with the new trio, you will encounter Hortensia and battle against her.

Citrinne is automatically recruited to your roster after completing this battle. This cannot be missed as it’s part of the main storyline – so rest easy.

Best class

Citrinne is one of the two characters in Fire Emblem Engage with the Mage starting class – the other one being Clanne. She uses the fire element as her weapon of choice, and has a default class progression of the Sage class.

That said, the Sage class would be the best one for Citrinne in the long run as she has an S proficiency with this one. You can set up Citrinne as a Sage via the Master Seal.

Moreover, with the Sage class, Citrinne gains the Spell Harmony ability. With this ability, if one of your units starts an attack with a tome, it grants “Attack” equivalent to the number of adjacent allies with tomes.  

Personal skill

Being a Mage (with her base class), Citrinne is quite experienced with Magic. The ability to heal comes with her prowess in magic, as does her personal skill – Generosity Skill. This personal skill allows Citrinne to heal herself while also healing her allies with the same amount of HP in the process.
