When Emelia joined her fellow men in arms, she was among the first to break through the enemy line. She had indeed become a powerful warrior, and her allies' spirits were kindled by the sight of the graceful swings of her massive halberd. Once one who could only be protected, she was now a skilled fighter and leader, and her kingdom expanded greatly as a result.
See Emelia, War Maiden.
