Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mist with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Fire Emblem

Ike's upbeat, bubbly sister, Mist is a main character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and returns in its sequel, Radiant Dawn. Always sunny, she works as a cleric in order to keep Ike and his fellow Greil Mercenaries healthy, out of a strong desire to protect the family she loves.

Even though the acting in Path of Radiance was a bit rough, they had the right idea with Elsbeth here. The voice itself natural, doesn't sound too exaggerated or tropey, so at the end of the day it sounds believable. Though Mist's role in Radiant Dawn was smaller and Lani's talents were spread across several characters (so convenience might have played a part), it's a shame she didn't get a chance to come back and potentially improve herself like Jason Adkins did for Ike. Personally I don't really feel Sarah Williams in this role too much since the voice sounds a bit put-on in comparison. Ultimately I think that warts and all, Elsbeth's take is the most natural here.

Sarah Anne Williams sounds so earnest and sweet.

Elsbeth Nathanson has a very good voice but acting wise she really falls flat and Lani Minella sounds too whispery and forced.

Sarah Williams for me. While Elsbeth Nathanson does have the more realistic voice for Mist; Sarah wins me over for giving a stronger performance, along with maintaining a youthful voice.

I think Elsbeth has a good voice but isn't a very good actress and falls very flat in the scenes she's in. Sarah gets a bit more of that uncertain yet tenacious nature across in the few lines she has, which fits more with Mist's character.

Ultimately, I'll go with Sarah, Elsbeth, and Lani as a distant third.

Here's how I'll rank the VAs here after listening to her voice in Heroes:

1. Elsbeth Nathanson
2. Sarah Anne Williams
3. Lani Minella

Elsbeth's take on Mist has more controlled acting and delivery, so I'm going with her here.

Lani's delivery as Misty is a tad too whispery and forced, even though the pitch is appropriate.

I voted for Elsbeth. Very natural and believable. Lani's pretty good too, but her performance sounds a smidge more stilted in comparison. Still, an impressive show of Lani's range as always.

Elsbeth has more lines than Lani did for Mist, I'm putting my vote for Elsbeth.

Couldn't wait until she's added to Heroes? (I mean she most likely will be at some time) No? No? Impatient aren't you.

Why do any voice compare when any future VA is possible?

@PeachesDaisy If she does come up in Heroes, it's no big deal. All the staff have to do is just update the VC with the additional VA. No harm, no foul.

Elsbeth Nathanson's voice is definitely a lot more fitting for Mist really. Fits the design rather well too! My only complaint is that her delivery is kinda off at times, but aside from that she's easily the one I'm voting for here.

Lani Minella does get to show her range for what it's worth. And the acting isn't particularly bad but... it's such a forced and unnatural voice that doesn't sound believable for the character at all sadly. Perhaps if she had more material to work with she'd be better? Either way she's a lot better as Micaiah that's for sure.

... eh kinda unfair since i think one of them had more material to work with , but i must say voice wise both work rather well , once again Lani demostrates her great range even in this small snip , however just judging from what we have here i must say Elsbeth's delivery is more natural and has a better fit on it for the character. My vote goes to Elsbeth.

@Swiftie Muggle

Two different actors with speaking lines = eligible to be compaared. That's all. By definition no comparison of two different things is ever going to be completely "fair".

@NCZ That was not the point i was trying to make. What i thought while posting was that Lani ironically got another FE role with few lines apparently (talking about Lyn) and i would have liked to hear more of her with more material considering she is a great voice actress, that's basically what it is.
