Eirika/L'Arachel, also known as Eirichel, is a femslash pairing between Eirika and L'Arachel in the Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones fandom.


Eirika and L'Arachel are princesses from nabouring countries, Renais and Rausten, though L'Arachel keeps her title a secret for a time. They first meet when L'Arachel witnesses Eirika fighting off monsters in Za'ha Woods and attempts to aid her. While Eirika is somewhat bewildered by L'Arachel's manner, they form a lasting connection all the same. In their supports, L'Arachel gives Eirika a ruby that has been in Rausten for generations as a sign of their friendship. Though Eirika is flustered that she does not have anything to give in return, L'Arachel suggests that once the fighting is over that Eirika should invite her to Renais and has her promise not to die in battle before then, to which Eirika happily agrees.


Eirika/L'Arachel has a small but dedicated fanbase within the Fire Emblem fandom. It gained more popularity in the years following Sacred Stones release, with fan events such as Eirichel Week running since 2017, partly due to newer Fire Emblem games bringing more femslash fans to the fandom, which typically had more het and slash. Some fans have even joked or speculated that L'Arachel's gift of a ruby was an engagement present, often used in fics.

They are often shipped alongside Ephraim/Lyon.
