Personally, I consider Lekain to be the main villain of the game. He's directly responsible for the atrocities in Daein which leads to the events in part one. He has no relevance in part two except for the Begnion dracoknights going into Crimea which wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the corruption of Begnion's Senate. In part three, he's the reason everything bad happens such as the Laguz being provoked, the blood pacts, the coup, Valtome being appointed as leader and provoking Crimea. In part 4, he no longer has as much relevance but he still has more screen time until his death. All Sephiran does in part 3 is get captured and later on conducts an uprising. In part one, he sends the Black Knight to protect Micaiah. He does end up convincing Ashera to pass her judgement but Ashera really didn't need convincing. I don't think Ashera constitutes as the main villain because she only becomes relevant in part 4 and wasn't even the cause of all the calamities.
People have complained that Ike is the only one who can finish off Ashera. Lately, I've been of the same opinion and my argument was this: 1. Ike has a lesser connection to Ashera compared to several other characters so it might be more fitting to see someone like Micaiah also get the final kill as well since she's the Apostle and the other main character. 2. Most bosses in other FE games can be killed by any unit you desire which is more fun because it can allow an underdog unit to get the kill. After all this is an RPG so you should be able to play the game in the way you desire. However after thinking about it logically, it makes perfect sense that Ike is the one who gets the kill. Portrayal wise, Ike is the strongest forced deployed character in the tower. There is a reason why Ike is known as the Strongest Hero. Power is basically his shtick, more so than the other FE lords, especially Micaiah. Yune recognizes this and gives Ike her full power so that he can deliver the final blow because the one who has the highest chance of victory is the one who is strongest. One can argue why doesn't she just distribute her power evenly. The problem with this idea is that she's splitting her power which diminishes the gains each character gets and it makes more logical sense to enhance the strongest character power than to enhance everyone unless Ike can do a fancy collaboration attack with the others but its unlikely everyone can hit Ashera at the exact same time for this to work.
Right before Radiant Dawn ends, it gives Ike credit for various heroic deeds but one thing I don't understand is the following. Final words In days long past, a young man strode the lands of Tellius. He was simple yet true, his deeds brave and noble. He reunited two races long at war, and healed the heart of a goddess long gone mad. Ask any you meet be they young or old, beorc or laguz, of a hero named Ike and you’ll receive a warm smile and a tale or two of faith, courage, and honesty. Fin Is it talking about Ashera, Ashunera or Yune? He doesn't change Ashera other than defeating her. Ashunera's heart is only healed because Yune merges with Ashera, not because Ike healed her. Also, Yune didn't change as a result of Ike's actions unless I'm missing something. Anyhow, it is ironic that the apostle, who has an actual connection with Yune, and by extension Ashera and Ashunera, doesn't get credit for this.
