I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
Initially dispatched by her father—the Grand Marshal of the Eternian Forces—to capture Agnès, Edea eventually joins Tiz's party in their quest to seek the truth and restore balance to the world.
Edea Lee is a playable character in Bravely Default and Bravely Second: End Layer, and also appears in Bravely Default: Praying Brage. Initially a member of the Eternian Sky Knights sent to capture the wind vestal Agnès Oblige, she soon grows opposed to the ruthless acts they commit and allies with Agnès instead. Over the course of the party's journey, Edea must now confront her fellow countrymen as a traitor.
D's Journal entries Edit
A beautiful girl who served under the black mage when Caldisla was set alight. Unable to forgive the duchy's brutality, she switched allegiance to the vestal.
An eighteen-year-old girl hailing from Eternia. On first impression, she appears to be a spoiled princess type. However, while strong-willed and opinionated, she is also kind and filled with a sense of justice. She never shies away from a conflict.
- Likes: REALLY sweet things
- Dislikes: Cooking, hassle, insects
Edea has long blonde hair with a black and red bow, and marine-colored eyes. She normally wears a short high-collar red dress with a mail-plated skirt. Her sleeves are black and her collar is white. She wears white tights and thigh-high black boots and black gloves.
In Bravely Second, Edea's hairstyle is slightly altered and she now wears a white and aqua bow. She wears a short aqua dress with plate-mail on each side. She wears silver gauntlets and silver armor-plated boots. The artbook indicates her outfit is designed from Ringabel's Bravely Default Freelancer costume.

Edea has several alternate outfits released as part of downloadable content in the Japanese release, which can be obtained in-game in the Western release. Defeating Fiore DeRosa in Chapter 5/6 unlocks the Bravo Bikini. Military Cadet-in is unavailable in the Western release and Bravo Bikini is censored.
Edea's Garb is a tight, black form-fitting outfit with armor-plated chest piece, sleeves, and boots. She has platemail on her hips and a decorative hairpin under her bow. The Plain Tunic is simply her Freelancer outfit. The Bravo Bikini consists of a white tube top with a black bow and black bikini shorts. In the Japanese release, she wears a skimpy white bikini top and black bottoms. Two long pieces of cloth hang down on each side and are adorned with black bows. She wears long black gloves and black and white boots. The Military Cadet-in outfit consists of a short black dress with white stripes and a white shrug around her shoulders. She wears white tights and black boots with a brown bag hanging around her left shoulder.
Alternate outfits also appear in Bravely Second and can be purchased at various locations.

Her hair is kept in the hood, except for two strands which stick out on each side. The Washcloth outfit is simply a towel wrapped around her. She wears her hair in a high bun with a white band and is barefoot. The Freelancer Garb is simply her default outfit. Her default outfit from Bravely Default returns under the name Sky Knight Garb.
Edea shares a few outfits with Agnès from Bravely Default. The first is the Bravo Bunny outfit which is a skimpy white one piece teddy. She has black gloves with a white bows on the side and black thigh-high boots with a white bow on the back of each. She wears a white rabbit ear headband with black markings on the tips with a black bow with white lining on the left side. The second is the Knight's Tunic outfit where she wears white corset-like one piece outfit with a black center and gold accents. Her "shorts" are black with red and gold stripes.

She wears silver high-heels with black legwarmers and a red ribbon tied around her ankles and armor knee braces. Her headband is silver with a black bow sticking off the right side.
Passionate and quick to anger (just like her father), Edea is a tomboy with a strong sense of justice and basic "black and white" views that leads to condemn those she considers evil. Raised in the duchy and its anticrystalist views, Edea spent most of her time training under Kamiizumi who taught her respect and honor when dealing with allies and foes alike. It when Edea witnesses the atrocities committed by the Sky Knights going to all lengths to capture the wind vestal, Edea sought to see the truth of the world with her own eyes. By Bravely Second, Edea slightly matured from her first adventure while having feelings for Ringabel. Edea is at times cognizant of romantic moments, such as Magnolia and Yew sharing an umbrella and dragging Tiz and Yōko away from the two so they can spend time alone.
Edea loves food, especially sweets. In the Party Chat "Ancheim's Gourmand" soon after they obtained the Eschalot Edea asks Agnès about the sweets she had in Ancheim. Agnès said it was 'ice-cream that stretched'. Edea thinks the ice cream being stretchy is weird, but is eager to have it. She has an unusual sense of taste, having once cooked something that turned out so vile Sage Yulyana gave it to a dog who "gave it to a cat who proceeded to give it to a crow". Edea's cooking skills slightly improve from her time in the ducal-guard despite her food being still unorthodox.
Edea was born around the time that her father lead the Anti-Crystalists against the Crystal Orthodoxy and established the Duchy of Eternia. Throughout her childhood, trained by Nobutsuna Kamiizumi in the way of combat, Edea attempted to win her father's respect. At age 10, she and Alternis Dim once attempted to hunt down an "abominable snowman", revealed to be a runaway Golem, running wild in the Eternian outskirts and nearly got herself killed. But she is saved by Barras Lehr, though he 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.
Eventually, 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. But while accompanying Ominas Crowe to capture Agnès, Edea is disgusted with the Sky Knights' conduct in harming innocents to achieve their goal. It was only when Ominas killed their own men in an attempt in the lives of Agnès, Tiz Arrior, and Ringabel that Edea choose to aid them and eventually won their trust while dealing with Ringabel's advances.
Once her betrayal is brought to light, Edea coups with fighting her fellow countrymen despite Alternis making attempts to secure her safety. It was only while in Eternia that Edea confronts her father, their opposing views led to the fight that results in Braev wounded to the point where he would no longer being able to use a sword. After the Crystals are awakened, the group battle Alternis when he attempts to stop them from 'destroying the world' under Braev's orders. After the party defeated him, Edea is shocked to see Alternis's exposed face identical to Ringabel's before he fell over railings of Grandship.
After restoring the crystals in several worlds, Edea learned that Ringabel is actually the Alternis of another world that ended up in her original home after he was knocked off Grandship while it was stationed in the Holy Pillar. This leads to Edea being more understanding towards Ringabel, as shown in one party chat where Ringabel offered to take her to a well known restaurant in Florem for a romantic dinner, but she turned him down. When he said that he was being genuine in his offer, she responded that she knew by now that he was and appreciated 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 later 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, carrying Ringabel's journal on her person, helps rebuild her country as knights-captain of Eternian Ducal Guard while working with Agnès to 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 at hand. Edea eventually comes across Yew Geneolgia as he was being attacked by Bella, saving him as the two are later joined by Magnolia Arch and Tiz to rescue Agnès from the Glanz Empire.
Eventually, after she and the others use the SP Hourglass to stop Denys Geneolgia from kidnapping Agnès and stopping the threat posed by the Glanz Empire, Edea is approached by her father as he wishes her to succeed him as Grand Marshall of the duchy by testing what she consider is the best traits of a leader. Once Edea passed his 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.
Like her allies, Edea is balanced fairly in her stats to ensure usage will not suffer in other classes. Despite this, Edea leans heavily towards physical classes as her high strength and defense make her perfect for classes such as the 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.

- 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.
