* SupernaturallyYoungParent: All of the first-generation characters are in their early 20's at most, and due to time travel, they can meet their children who are in their late teens. If the Avatar marries any of the children, they take it further by being young ''grandparents''; it should also be noted that [[spoiler:Lissa, Cordelia, and Olivia can become this by the time of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' as their children can have children of their own in that game. They could potentially even be ''great''-grandparents.]]

[[folder:Lissa (Liz)]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Liz_891.jpg]]

-->''"I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve!"''

Chrom's tomboyish little sister, the Princess of Ylisse. With nary an ounce of snobbery in her nature, she is among the most likeable and approachable of the Shepherds. The girl most likely to snort. Her birthday is March 6th.

->'''Class:''' Cleric
->'''Voiced by:''' KanaAsumi (Japanese), Creator/KateHiggins (English)
----
* AnimeHair
* ApologeticAttacker: One of her post-fight quotes is a very [[BlatantLies innocent-sounding]] "Sorry!"
* {{Badass}}: After promoting.
** BadassAdorable
** BadassPrincess
* BattleBallgown
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* [[BigBrotherWorship Big Sister Worship]]: She idolizes Emmeryn and desires to be a ProperLady just like her.
** Her battle model as a sage is even the same color scheme as Emmeryn's robes.
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: The Mark of Naga... supposedly. [[spoiler:It turns out she doesn't have one, and it was implied that she feared that she's a bastard child until her son was born with the mark.]]
* BodyguardCrush: If paired with Lon'qu or Frederick. In Frederick's supports, she mentions that he was her first crush.
* CharacterDevelopment: Somewhat. She goes from complaining about having to camp outside in the beginning to a battle hardened warrior near the end.
* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments.
* FirstGirlWins: If paired with the Male Avatar.
* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: She can wield axes as a War Cleric.
* TheHeart: According to Chrom and Lon'qu, her greatest asset to the Shepherds is her ability to keep the army in high spirits.
* LethalChef: Her "rainbow" filling pie caused Kellam to faint.
* MagikarpPower: If she promotes to Sage she can become one of the most powerful magic users in the entire game. Sure, it doesn't look as unique as the [[MemeticMutation NUNSWITHAXES]] thing, but still she kicks some ass.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Her supports with Frederick pretty much revolve around butting into his routine and then getting him to loosen up a bit.
* ModestRoyalty
* NaiveNewcomer
* NiceHat: ''Buttons.''
** The party hat in the Harvest Scramble DLC map. She gets to keep it during the remainder of the map during conversations AND battle model, which doubles as GameplayAndStoryIntegration.
* HeroicLineage
* PluckyGirl
* ThePrankster: Gets into pranking the Avatar in their supports. They get back at her in the A support
** {{Loving Bully}}: If she reaches [[RelationshipUpgrade S Rank]] with a Male Avatar, she reveals that she likes him and was doing it to get his attention.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"You asked for it!"''\\
''"This one might hurt!"''\\
''"This might surprise you!"''\\
''"Clear a path everyone!"''
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Maribelle.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SpoiledSweet
* SquishyWizard: Her stat modifiers lean towards this, getting good magic and resistance, but low strength and defense, complementing the Sage class very well.
* {{Tomboy}}
** TomboyPrincess
** TomboyAndGirlyGirl: {{Tomboy}} to Maribelle's GirlyGirl.
* UptownGirl: If paired with Donnel or Vaike.
* WhiteMagicianGirl
** StaffChick: What she starts out as.
** AnAxeToGrind: Unbelieveably, she can be an ''axe-wielder'' if you promote her to War Cleric!
*** CombatMedic
*** GirlWithPsychoWeapon
*** MagicKnight
*** MusclesAreMeaningless: The only explanation as to HOW she's able to even carry an axe, given her figure. However her strength growth is shown to be rather low.
* PaletteSwap: Her sage's robe is yellow and green - in fact, it's nearly identical to Emmeryn's outfit.
* RedMage: If you promote her to Sage, she can use tomes along with staves.
* SleepCute: With Henry in her A-Support.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She fears ghosts, bugs, snakes and amphibians, darkness, long finger nails, and... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking lemons]].

[[folder:Frederick]]
[[quoteright:228:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Frederick_6978.jpg]]

-->''"For victory."''

Chrom's lieutnant, an Ylissean knight who is sincere to a fault. He tends to demand tremendous effort for seemingly trivial things, and prefaces such exercises with a grin. The fondest of starting fires. His birthday is August 26.

->'''Class:''' Great Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' DaisukeOno (Japanese), KyleHebert (English)
----
* AffectionateNickname: Chrom and Lissa deem him "Frederick the Wary", a title he wears with pride.
** EmbarrassingNickname: The male Avatar calls him "Fredericson" and the female one "Freddy-Bear" in their supports, which he immediately dislikes.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna.
* {{Badass}}: One of the biggest in the game, and that's saying something:
** BadassInANiceSuit: Wears a suit underneath his armor. WordOfGod said his suit was based off [[BattleButler a butler's]]. It was lampshaded in his support with Maribelle.
** CulturedWarrior
** FourStarBadass
* BattleButler
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick: Unlike most Great Knights, Frederick specializes in Lances instead of Axes, though he can still use them and Swords as well.
* CharacterSelectForcing: He is essentially your only answer for doing the early stages of Lunatic and Lunatic+ mode. The early stages of Lunatic and Lunatic+ runs are affectionately called [[FanNickname Frederick Emblem]] with good reason.
* TheComicallySerious
* CrutchCharacter: Though of the Oifey archetype, meaning he remains viable well past the early stages of the game. The pair up system makes him very useful without stealing too much XP from your low level characters. Along with Anna he plays this role.
** MagikarpPower: Post-game: His slower Exp gain rate will have him behind early on, but he is one of the few characters who naturally gains access to the [[DamageReduction Pavise/Aegis]] combo (and he's one of the few guys with a Defense modifier who doesn't suffer a hit in Resistance), which along with his high Skill stat and Luna skill, makes him a good tank and a good damage dealer. His access to the Wyvern Rider class set also makes him a good choice for ferrying units around if he's in a mobile class, once he gets Deliverer (alternatively, you can make Frederick into a [[StoneWall Gen]][[MightyGlacier eral]] and make him into a somewhat more mobile foot tank when paired up).
* CustomUniform: Frederick, as a Great Knight, wears slightly different, lighter armor than the generic armor worn by others of the same class.
* DeadpanSnarker: At times. His short bio even states he's the "stern and sarcastic second-in-command".
* DoesNotLikeSpam: He hates wild game meat, especially bear meat.
* [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]]: If you have him paired up with Lissa.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Not with his enemies, nor his allies, as his trainees can vouch for.
* TheLancer
* LargeHam: While he's usually calm and composed, he tends to lose all restraint if he encounters something he ''really'' doesn't like.
* LoveHurts [=/=] UnwantedSpouse: If paired with [[spoiler:Cordelia]], he enters into the marriage knowing full well that her heart belongs to [[spoiler:Chrom]], but hoping that she'll eventually come to love him as he loves her.
* TheMentor: He prefers to guide others.
* MightyGlacier: A mobile one in his starting class. His modifiers also lean him towards this.
* NervesOfSteel: Lampshaded by Avatar regarding the jokes he gets from Chrom and Lissa. Although he claims to get it all out of his system when there aren't people looking.
* NotSoAboveItAll: His supports with Avatar reveal that he [[spoiler:can't stand bear meat himself, despite chiding Lissa for refusing to eat it]].
** Also, his supports with Henry reveals that [[spoiler:he doesn't actually like training as much as people thinks he does]].
* NumberTwo: He's Chrom's second in command.
* OfficerAndAGentleman
* OneManArmy: Just like other Jagen characters, he gets to be this at the beginning of the game. Although thanks to the game's new class-change system, he still can maintain the status if the player plays it right.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Pick a god and pray!"''\\
''"Farewell!"''\\
''"Your last breath approaches."''\\
"''Now!''"
* ProperlyParanoid: He's in charge of his country's prince and princess. He ''has'' to be.
* {{Pyromaniac}}: Downplayed, as he's only fond of starting ''camp''fires.
* RealMenWearPink: One of his solo barracks conversations allows you to catch him muttering to himself about ''knitting everyone matching gloves'' and wondering what color to make them.
* ScheduleFanatic
* TheSpartanWay: His way of training his troops. Although instead of being a DrillSergeantNasty, he always keeps smiling while being polite...which his trainees find even [[OhCrap MORE scary]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Just like other characters, he got a odd alternate spelling in the [=NoJ=] stuff, in this case, "Fredrick" (no second "e").
* StopHelpingMe: [[invoked]] Frederick's attempts to help someone sometimes backfire horribly. Of particular note is his C support with Chrom, where he tries to raise troop morale by sticking posters of Chrom '''naked''' in every tent.
** It gets worse. When told to tone down the helping, he has a small psychological breakdown, and ends up trying to dust the Avatar when they are trying to have a meeting with Chrom.
* TrainingFromHell: His training session for the army dubbed "[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Frederick's Fanatical Fitness]] Hour."
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Ylisse Royal Family.
* VeteranInstructor
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Wolves?]]: Due to nearly getting killed by a wolf when he was younger, Frederick is terrified of wolves or anything that looks like a wolf, like a [[KillerRabbit taguel]].
* {{Workaholic}}: Frederick takes his duties as a knight ''very'' seriously, to the point that some of his support conversations imply he doesn't even know how to relax.

[[folder:Sully (Soiree)]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sully_FE_A_4403.jpg]]

-->''"Turns out the business end of my sword is '''me'''!"''

A no-nonsense, capable Shepherd with a mouth that would make brigands blush. Ylissean women admire her strength and call her "The Woman to End All Men". The last one you want cooking. Her birthday is December 5th.

->'''Class:''' Cavalier
->'''Voiced by:''' Momoko Ohara (Japanese), Amanda C. Miller (English)
----
* AllAmazonsWantHercules
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna if she goes Great Knight.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassNormal
** BadassPrincess: If she marries Chrom.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Basilio [[spoiler:and the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick: Focuses on lances more than [[CoolSword swords]], which is reversed for a Cain archetype.
** Can gain [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] as well if she promotes to Great Knight.
* BlueOniRedOni: The Red Oni to Stahl's Blue.
* {{Bokukko}}: Also the first ever female member of the [[RedOniBlueOni Red Knight/Green Knight duo]].
* BoyishShortHair
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: If paired with Chrom.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Red, which is present in her Paladin and Great Knight class models.
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against bows, tomes, and dragonstones if she goes Paladin.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer
* FieryRedhead
* FirstGirlWins: If paired with Chrom, due to ChildhoodFriendRomance.
* FragileSpeedster[=/=]JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers lean her towards a mix of this, especially if you go the Paladin route with her. And while she'd supposedly be a MightyGlacier as a Great Knight, her growths means she will still lean towards this.
* HotBlooded
* TheLadette: Claims to feel indifferent about it, but some of her supports do have her worry about her femininity.
* LethalChef: To the point where her husband learns to cook on his own ''just to not die''.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The masculine girl to, well, just about any guy is a feminine boy compared to her.
* MeaningfulName: Sully is an adjective and a synonym for "dirty", which could apply to her athletic pursuits and her cooking.
* MentorShip: If paired with Frederick.
* OneOfTheBoys: Lampshaded during some of her supports.
* OppositesAttract: In her supports with Libra.
* PreMortemOneLiner
--> ''"Where should I stab ya!?"''\\
''"I'll kill you twice!"''\\
''"So long, chump!"''\\
''"To hell with you!"''
* SharedFamilyQuirks: She acts very unwomanly-like because she grew up in a home where she had two rowdy older brothers. [[spoiler:It became even more serious for her to be like them when they were knights and were killed off by bandits away from home. Because of this, she wants to uphold their legacy as a strong knight in the Ylissel order.]]
* ShesGotLegs: Virion describes her as having shapely legs.
* SirSwearsALot: Good luck finding a scene she's in where she doesn't swear at least once. Her in-game description even describes her as being foul-mouthed.
* TalkToTheFist
* {{Tomboy}}
* TomboyishName: Her localized name, obviously. Specially considering that gamers usually think of another character from [[{{Uncharted}} another famous video game series]] when they hear that name.
** {{Irony}}: Her Japanese name. An English (French) word for an event where you're ''not'' likely to find her by her choice.
* ZettaiRyouiki: For all intents and purposes, Grade A.

[[folder:Virion (Viole/Viaur)]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Viaur_Artwork_730.jpg]]

-->''"Am I not a thing of beauty?"''

A secretive noble from some land or another. While many would brand him a buffoon or a braggart, his boasts are often founded. He is swift to propose to anything female. The most prolonged primper. His birthday is December 10th.

->'''Class:''' Archer
->'''Voiced by:''' Hiromichi Kogami (Japanese)
----
* TheAce: Practically all of his boasting turns out to be just ''him stating simple facts.''
* AgentPeacock
* TheArcher: Specifically, "The Archest of Archers." Also, can be promoted to Sniper, which can gain Bowfaire.
** BowAndSwordInAccord: If promoted to a [[HorseArcher Bow Knight]].
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* {{Bishonen}}
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* CasanovaWannabe
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Played with. He speaks with a marked French accent... but at the same time, he had perfectly valid reasons for retreating.
* ChivalrousPervert
* ClassyCravat: And proud of it too, as he becomes quite insulted when the Avatar calls it a bib in their B support.
* CulturedBadass: Tea and chess are his hobbies.
* DirtyCoward: How the majority of the world sees him after abandoning his province of Rosanne to Walhart.
* EngagingConversation: Virion's fond of pulling these.
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench
* FanNickname: Edgey, for his pronounced resemblance to [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]].
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Rosanne is apparently French.
* TheFightingNarcissist
* GenreSavvy: Why he actually doesn't ''lead'' armies. (See HiddenDepths)
* HiddenDepths: Though he combines this with CassandraTruth, constantly telling people how amazing he is, only to have them write him off as just a boaster. [[{{Badass}} Then he goes and proves it.]]
** He also is able to beat the Avatar at chess (or something similar to it). However, in his B support with the him/her, he points out that even though the Avatar can't beat him, Virion [[PyrrhicVictory wins with extreme cost]] and that if he did lead a real army like that, he would have a ZeroPercentApprovalRating.
** His fortune telling, as revealed in his supports with Miriel, is actually somewhat of a social science to him.
** During the S rank Scene with Sully it shows that despite all his Large Ham tendencies he is actually quite shy.
* LadykillerInLove: If paired.
* LargeHam: Especially when he's around women.
* PreMortemOneLiner:
--> ''"Die! With magnificence!"''\\
''"Adieu!"''\\
''"Shall I make you famous?"''\\
''"One for the bards!"''
* PyrrhicVictory: The reason why, despite being a skilled tactician, he never tries to take the Avatar's role. He gets too many of his men killed achieving any specific objective, as opposed to the Avatar's (and likely the player's) reluctance to sacrifice so much as a single unit.
* SelfDeprecation: During the S rank scene with Sully he can't actually believe that she would actually want to marry him.
* SerialRomeo
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Though, shockingly to everyone, his strategy is that of TheCombatPragmatist.
* WeakButSkilled: While his strength is nothing to sneeze at, what Virion brings to the table is his good speed and phenomenal skill, though his defenses do leave much to be desired.
* [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Teal Blue Haired Pretty Boy]]

[[folder:Stahl (Sort/Sol)]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Stahl_Fire_Emblem_Awakening_365.jpg]]

-->''"Just look at me go!"''

A surprisingly normal Shepherd with a big heart and perpetual cowlick. He has a good head on his shoulders, but the rest of him often has trouble keeping up. The most eager to clean a plate. His birthday is June 16.

->'''Class:''' Cavalier
->'''Voiced by:''' Tarusuke Shingaki (Japanese), SamRiegel (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Very apparent in his romantic supports.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna if he goes Great Knight.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As kindhearted as he is, he was a knight who was personally [[TrainingFromHell trained by Frederick]] alongside Sully, and can become a deadly unit gameplay-wise.
* BigEater: Upon picking up an item on the battlefield, he gives us this gem:
-->''What's this? [[IsItSomethingYouEat Is it edible?]] I haven't eaten in minutes.''
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Kellam (Big) and Donnel (Short). Stahl serves as the Thin member.
* BlueOniRedOni: The Blue to Sully's Red.
* ButtMonkey: Stahl tends to wind up in a lot of unfortunate situations, the thing is, it's usually [[ExtremeDoormat his own fault.]]
* CanNotTellALie: In the supports, Tharja curses him with a spell that, if he lies to her in any way, he will die a painful death. If he reaches a rank S, he uses the curse as proof that his feelings are true. [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue Tharja explaining him that she lifted the curse a long time ago]].]]
* CoolSword: Focuses on swords more than [[BladeOnAStick lances]]. Which is unusually reversed for an Abel archetype.
** Can gain [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] as well if he promotes to Great Knight.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Green, and like Sully, it is also present in his Paladin and Great Knight class models.
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against bows, tomes, and dragonstones if he goes Paladin.
* ExtremeDoormat: "No" does not seem to be a part of [[NiceGuy Stahl]]'s vocabulary.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''"Ungh... If only... I'd trained harder... Made myself... stronger..."''
* HairColorDissonance: His hair in official art is green, but in-game the more neutral tone makes it hard to tell whether it's is gray, green, brown, or any combination of the three.
* HiddenDepths: He has a talent for being able to read others easily and knowing what they want before they even ask. Not that he even takes advantage of it, instead it supplements his considerate and thoughtful nature.
* LetsGetDangerous: Listen to his battle quotes and it's hard to believe that he's so easygoing off the battlefield.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The feminine boy to Sully's masculine girl. He's not ''that'' feminine, really, but anyone would come off as feminine when compared to [[TheLadette her.]]
* MeaningfulName: ''Stahl'' means "steel" in German. ''Sol'' and ''Sort'' mean "sun" and "fate", the latter fitting well with Sully's original French-derived name.
* MessyHair
* MightyGlacier[=/=]JackOfAllStats: His modifiers lend him to be a mix of this, with bonuses to strength, defense and skill at the cost of luck and resistance. Promotion to the balanced Paladin Class with the Aegis skill exemplifies this, halving tome, arrow, and Dragonstone damage. His speed cap is actually decent, but the mediocre growth rate can hamper it.
* NiceGuy: To the point where various characters either tell him that he doesn't give himself enough credit or don't believe he has no ulterior motives for being so nice. The Avatar in their A Support has them assuring that they will always look out for him like he does for everyone else.
* OnlySaneMan: His supports with some of the more eccentric characters come off this way. His short bio even says that he's the most reasonable of the Shepherds.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Ready?"''\\
''"I love this part!"''\\
''"You are so dead!"''\\
''"Get ready!"''
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: According to his B support with Miriel, he is in the exact median for any and all performance data of everyone in the camp. She is amazed by just how incredibly unoutstanding he is. Although it's played with later on. [[spoiler: It's noted that he's improved significantly during Miriel's tests. Because everyone ''knows'' that Stahl is ridiculously average, they perceive him catching up to them as their own skills atrophying, and push themselves to improve in turn. He's basically the baseline for the entire army, and by improving himself he makes the whole thing better.]]
* TalkingToHimself: He has a support with Donnel, who shares his voice actor.
* [[ThroughHisStomach Through Her Stomach]]: He tries to win over Panne looking for dishes that she and the rest of the group can like so she joins the group during meals, instead of isolating herself. This is because Panne, being a Taguel, can't digest some of the human food, such as potatoes (Stahl discovers this last bit the hard way).
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Fried fig cakes, according to his support with the Avatar.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Against Stahl's low expectations in himself, Chrom says he's one of the Shepherds' best knights, and Sully tells him that he's the better rider out of the two of them.
** [[spoiler:In a similar case to Sumia, it's actually to his benefit that he thinks that way: he fights every battle like it would be his last and thus he does his best.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Greenish-gray Hair]]

[[folder:Vaike (Wyck)]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Wyck_4714.jpg]]

->''"Looks like the Vaike just got Vaiker!"''

A rough-hewn Shepherd with a loud personality and far more confidence than his ability warrants. He sees himself as exemplary and reverently refers to himself in the third person. The best at misplacing things. His birthday is December 26th.

->'''Class:''' Fighter
->'''Voiced by:''' Daisuke Endo (Japanese), Michael Sorich (English)
----
* AnAxeToGrind
** Can gain a CoolSword (Hero) or [[TheArcher bows]] (Warrior) depending on his promotion route.
* BadassTeacher: Or so he claims.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BloodKnight
* BoisterousBruiser
** BruiserWithASoftCenter: Lissa thinks he has one for Chrom. [[spoiler: He later develops one for Lissa herself if they S Support.]]
* ChainedByFashion: Sports some chains hanging from his collar protector.[[note]]This is standard garb for the Fighter class.[[/note]]
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* DumbMuscle: Vaike isn't exactly the sharpest axe in the armory, but he can be surprisingly clever when he wants to be.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“GAR! Vaike the Mighty...falls at last...C-Chrom...take up the torch...”''
* ForgetfulJones: He forgets his own weapon in his first chapter.
** RunningGag: He ends up misplacing it again at the end of the game ''and'' during the Summer Scramble DLC.
* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: He knows that he's TheBigGuy ''at best'' in terms of his role in the plot but he still insists on challenging Chrom and acting like his [[TheLancer Lancer]] because he figures that the only way he can become the best warrior in the army is to keep challenging the one who currently holds that title.]]
* GoalInLife: [[spoiler: To become a great warrior and role model for the children of his hometown, hoping to improve the next generation and bridge the gap between the high and low classes.]]
* HotBlooded
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: It's 'vake,' not 'vike.'
* LargeHam
* LifeDrain: Sol, which he can learn if classed into Hero.
* PaperRam: The Charger type. Plenty of [[MeatShield health]], [[GlassCannon strength and decent speed]], but his poor defenses, especially resistance, will make those hit points vanish quickly if his enemy manages to survive his onslaught.
* ThePeepingTom: His supports with the Avatar chronicle his attempts to peep on the ladies bathing.
** BadLiar: He ''tries'' to lie his way out of it when the Avatar catches him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Looks like Teach just got tenure!"''\\
''"That's enough back talk!"''\\
''"Just you and me!"''\\
''"You want some?"''
* RedOniBlueOni: In his supports with Lon'qu. Take a guess who's who.
* TheRival: Deliberately acts this way towards Chrom because it's the only thing Vaike knows would make them equals.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He calls himself Ore-sama (The Great Me) in the Japanese version.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: "Enter the Vaike!"
* ThirdPersonPerson: Very frequently. Lissa thinks he has to, otherwise he would [[ForgetfulJones forget his own name]].
* VitriolicBestBuddies: His relationship with Chrom, from which Vaike will outright deny it's anything friendlier than rivalry even if it's proven otherwise.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Played straight with his portrait, but zig-zags depending on his promotion route.

-->''"I am a staunch believer in amelioration."''

A grandiloquent but fastidious Shepherd who waxes wroth if so much as a single arrow sits askew in its quiver. She adores research and obsesses over her object of study. The most superfluous packer. Her birthday is February 12th.

->'''Class:''' Mage
->'''Voiced by:''' Yurika Aizawa (Japanese), TaraPlatt (English)
----
* BadassBookworm
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BlackMage
** RedMage: If promoted to Sage.
** MagicKnight: Mounted version if promoted to a Dark Knight.
* BrainySpecs
** AdjustingYourGlasses: By the sides.
* CreepyGood: Not quite to the extent of Tharja, but Miriel is not above threatening to [[BodyHorror fuse weapons to people's arms]] so they won't forget them, or taking rather extreme measures in her study of magic (see ForScience below)
* ElementalPowers - Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire: Starts with a Fire tome.
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe
* {{Expy}}: Her ForScience attitude, single-minded pursuit for her study, and her confusion when her love interests propose to her make the fans liken her to [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Lute]].
* ForScience: She considers dissecting [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Lilina]] to study the source of her magic, for one...
* GlassCannon: A magical one thanks to her modifiers. Great magic and decent skill and speed at the cost of defense and strength (the latter of which won't matter much to her).
* HotWitch
* InHarmsWay: In her supports with Lon'qu, she ''never'' tries to avoid the dangers that she's exposed to, if she even notices them at all. Partly because she knows that he will save her, but mostly because [[ForScience she wants to study the effects of his gynophobia]].
* TheLabRat
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if she promotes to Dark Knight.
* MayDecemberRomance: If she marries [[TeacherStudentRomance Ricken or Donnel.]]
* {{Meganekko}}
* MysteryOfTheWeek: The general theme of her supports. Most of the supposed mysteries are Miriel just overthinking things.
* NiceHat: Minerva even thinks so, according to Miriel's support with Cherche.
* [[spoiler: NeverFoundTheBody: In her conversation with Laurent in Future Past 3 he reveals that her body was never found and he kept hoping that one day he'd find her. Seeing Present!Miriel will allow him to let go and move on.]]

An absent-minded, klutzy Shepherd with a shocking lack of self-worth. However, she exhibits one-of-a-kind talent when it comes to working with animals. The best at tripping over nothing. Her birthday is November 24th.

->'''Class:''' Pegasus Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Ayano Yamamoto (Japanese), DanielleJudovits (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* ApologeticAttacker: Occasionally when she Dual Strikes.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassAdorable
** BadassBookworm
** BadassPrincess: If she marries Chrom.
** HiddenBadass: Don't let her klutziness deceive you. Once she gets on her pegasus, this girl can pack quite a punch.
** SubmissiveBadass: Sweet, kind and unassuming. Unless she's fighting.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with Male Avatar, Chrom, Frederick, Gaius, and Henry.
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BeYourself: In her A rank support conversation, the Avatar said that she's fine the way she is and need not to emulate and behave like the heroines in the novels that she reads. This however leads her to believe that [[ComicallyMissingThePoint the next novel she reads should be about a heroine who's as clumsy and plain as she is.]] Although in her S rank conversation with a male Avatar shows that she thought about it and realized he was right.
* BladeOnAStick
** MagicKnight: A flying version if promoted to Dark Flier. Is a flying CombatMedic version instead if promoted to Falcon Knight.
* CuteBookworm: Her support with Avatar shows she LOVES to read novels. Although in her case it's more for escaping reality.
** CanonWelding: One of the books she reads is called "[[spoiler:The Genealogy of the Holy War]]". The English version hilariously changed this to the "[[spoiler:Ribald Tales of the Faith War]]" instead.
* CuteClumsyGirl: She gets better later in the game, though. Especially after she gets married.
* DiscOneNuke: In difficulties other than Lunatic and Lunatic+. Sumia's has a high speed that is enough to double attack anything short of bosses even without Pair Up during the time where every other unit might have problem at doubling enemies. This, combined with Flying capability means Sumia Paired Up with Frederick is likely your best unit for the first half of the game.
* DorkKnight
* {{Escapism}}: The reason why reading is one of her hobbies is because of she can pretend to be the protagonist of the novel instead of her usual clumsy self. Her S rank support with a male Avatar has her admit it and decide to stop in order to better herself.
* FragileSpeedster: Her modifiers lean her towards this, getting good skill and great speed, at the cost of defense and strength. As she is not hit in magic however, she can become a speedy [[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]] as a Dark Flier.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She has an uncanny ability for communicating with animals.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Tries to do this to Chrom, with an ArmorPiercingSlap, but accidentally ''punches'' him instead.
* [[GoodIsNotDumb Good Is Neither Dumb]] [[GoodIsNotSoft Nor Soft]]
* GirlyBruiser: Although her demure demeanor would suggest otherwise, Sumia has no problem kicking ass with the rest.
* GoshDangItToHeck: "Oh, HORSE PLOP!"
* GracefulInTheirElement: A disaster on land, but get her on her pegasus...
* HairDecorations: Beaded hairbands and wings for her ponytail.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: She finds out in her supports with Cynthia that she is a legendary pegasus knight in the future, known for violently destroying friend and foe alike. She resolves to tread carefully with any historians she happens to meet from then on.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even though she's arguably one of the best Pegasus Knights in the game, she still has a severe inferiority complex due to her blatant klutziness.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cordelia.
* InstantExpert: Although it's likely Sumia already possessed equestrian skills from the beginning, almost immediately after meeting and befriending her pegasus, she was somehow able to expertly ride it.
** She did mention Philia saying that pegasi are very weak to arrows and wind magic, so it's possible that she was previously interested in riding them and took some private lessons.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: Played with. Sumia is an avid practitioner of flower fortunes.
** LovesMeNot: She likes to use flower fortunes to predict whether she survives the next battle or not. Even if she gets a bad fortune, she just repeats it until she gets a good one. In some of her endings her fortunes actually become well-known as a bringers of good luck.
** HiddenDepths: In her A rank support with Cordelia she affirms that, in fact, she doesn't care whether her flower fortunes are correct or not. She just uses them to motivate herself to create the best possible future. Cordelia responds saying that's "[[ICantBelieveImSayingThis the most reasonable nonsense she's ever heard]]".
* TheMillstone: In her Supports with Gaius, she screws up his attempts at finding honey. Later, she generously helps him get honey... by giving him a beehive while the bees are still chasing her.
* OfficialCouple: With Chrom, unless the player gives him a higher support level with another girl [[spoiler:or keeps him from supporting with the girls until after chapter 11]].
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"For Ylisse!"''\\
''"Begone!"''\\
''"Here goes!"''\\
''"I'll end this now!"''
* RapunzelHair: Waist long wavy hair plus OjouRinglets to boot.
** LongHairIsFeminine
* RescueRomance: If Chrom is not paired with another girl, their cutscene in chapter 3 has shades of this. In an interesting twist, [[DistressedDude it's Sumia doing the rescuing!]]
* ShipTease: She gets a lot of this with Chrom, almost from her very first appearance. Heck, even ''her pegasus'' appears to be a ShipperOnDeck!
* SilkHidingSteel: Sweet and unassuming out of battle. Hyper-competent in battle.
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Name With A U]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: GirlyGirl to Cordellia's {{Tomboy}}
* ThroughHisStomach: She bakes Chrom a pie at Rank B with this intent.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early trailers indicate she was planned to have Cavalier as a reclass option.
* YouMeddlingKids: Parodied and ultimately subverted. In the Summer Scramble DLC, Miriel assumes that Sumia's klutzy attitude is nothing but a trap for Sumia to attract the attention of men. Sumia denies this until Miriel brings decisive evidence during her entire observation process. Then, Sumia [[spoiler:''laughs maniacally and admits that she's truly is acting like a klutz to get attention'' (saying a variation of this trope), and then she decides to silence Miriel '''forever''' so that nobody else finds out about her secret. ''[[SubvertedTrope However]]'', it turns out to have been just a big [[AllJustADream heatstroke-induced delusion]] on Miriel's part due to the warmth of the beach exhausting her.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

-->''"Hey, did you see how...Oh, no one's looking."''

A laconic, blank-faced Shepherd whose infamous lack of presence causes him to pass by others as if invisible. Despite his protests, he is actually quite proud of that. The tallest while seated. His birthday is June 24th.

->'''Class:''' Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Manabu Sakamaki (Japanese), Orion Acaba (English)
----
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Stahl (Thin) and Donnel (Short). Kellam serves as the Big member.
* BladeOnAStick
** AnAxeToGrind: Regardless of which class he promotes to.
** CoolSword: If promoted to Great Knight.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* ButtMonkey: His first appearance in an issue of Famitsu was spent demonstrating different ''death quotes'' between classic and casual mode. Poor guy. Heck, his face is obscured by Chrom's ''knee'' on the game's boxart!
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against swords, lances, axes, and beaststones if he goes General.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[FireEmblemJugdral Arden]], who also had difficulites getting attention in his game. Their situation is so similar the Lost Bloodlines DLC makes a RunningGag out of it!
--> '''Kellam''': Fight me! ...I mean, just look at us. It was meant to happen.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* TheGenericGuy: In fact, he's so generic to the point of his family barely knows he exist. He also capable of pulling some serious StealthHiBye even though he's the largest person in the army.
** He's so generic that [[spoiler:every one of his marriage endings is his wife's solo ending with the line "Her husband's name has been lost to history" tagged on at the end.]]
* FailedASpotCheck: Seriously, he wears that much armor and ''still'' barely gets noticed! In fact, it's so bad that despite being the tallest person at the table according to his bio, for ages the rest of the army was baffled by an extra cup at the table, and assumed the place was haunted!
** It becomes a RunningGag whenever he appears. In his supports with Tharja for example, she somehow misses him ''[[BangingPotsAndPans clanging two pans together to get her attention]]!''
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“I-I'm done for... I wonder if...anyone will notice...I'm gone...”''
* GenreSavvy: Kellam is fully aware of how unnoticeable he is and apparently knows how to "disappear" at will.
** Becomes something of FridgeBrilliance when one notices that one of two other classes he can change into with a Second Seal is the Thief class.
* GentleGiant: He's the tallest of the shepherds sitting up, and is an incredibly NiceGuy.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: For a certain value of "cool", but certainly "impossible".
** Though it's actually more practical than it looks (for a certain value of 'practical' anyway). The large part above the torso is actually a detachable ShouldersOfDoom.
* MightyGlacier[=/=]StoneWall: His class, and his modifiers. He gets decent strength, and has a great defense modifier, but his speed and luck modifiers are poor.
* MysteriousProtector: But not by choice!
* NiceGuy: Poor Kellam doesn't even have it in him to be angry for being ignored all the time. He's just happy whenever someone actually notices him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"It's my big moment!"''\\
''"Don't miss this!"''\\
''"They've gotta notice this!"''\\
''"Come on, look at me!"''
* RunningGag: Read the rest of his tropes and take a wild guess...
* TheQuietOne: Literally. One of the reasons most people don't realize his presence is that he doesn't say anything nor makes any sounds (despite wearing that bulky armor everywhere!) when entering a room.
** People probably mistake him as a mannequin in a decorative display armor back at the Shepherd's HQ.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Caeda and Lilina notice him in a few DLC chapters. In addition, if he has a child s/he will see him with no troubles.
* TwentyFourHourArmor: His supports with Maribelle show that he wears his armor most of the time because it's his most the comfortable clothing for him.
* WalkingTheEarth: [[spoiler:His solo ending. After the events of the game, he leaves Ylisse to go on a long journey. Of course, its not until years later before anyone even notices his absence.]]
* WhoIsThisGuyAgain: Holee...

A villager from a remote corner of Ylisse who came to fight with little more than farming experience. However, he is eager to learn and shows a great deal of promise. The one with the curliest hair. His birthday is June 4th.

->'''Class:''' Villager
->'''Voiced by:''' MitsuhiroIchiki (Japanese), SamRiegel (English)
----
* BadassAdorable
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Stahl (Thin) and Kellam (Big). Donnel serves as the Short member.
* BladeOnAStick: Weirdly, his class change options are [[CoolSword Mercenary]] and [[AnAxeToGrind Fighter]], making his promoted options [[CoolSword He]][[AnAxeToGrind ro]], [[AnAxeToGrind Warr]][[TheArcher ior]], and [[BowAndSwordInAccord Bow]] [[HorseArcher Knight]]. None of those classes have lances as an option, meaning he has to discard his lance rank altogether.
* BlueWithShock: One of his character portraits.
* BucketHelmet: He wears it throughout the game, even after changing classes. Which can be odd when he's wearing full plate armor and still has a bucket as helmet.
* ComingOfAgeStory: The plot of his sidequest is basically this.
* CountryMouse
* DareToBeBadass: Chrom gives him one.
* DisappearedDad: His father died when he was a kid.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Unnngh...I-I did m'best...Made the village proud...”''
* FarmBoy
* GeniusDitz: In some supports, such as the one with Maribelle, Donnel reveals that he is in fact much smarter than he seems to be. He also has the [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Skill "Aptitude"]] which increases his growths across the board.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has an X scar on his left cheek.
** XMarksTheHero
* HerosJourney: Donny rises to the [[CallToAdventure call]], fights the good fight, and in the end, [[spoiler: he returns to the peaceful farming village he knows so well.]]
* InSeriesNickname: "Donny".
* JokeItem: Seen fighting with a Wooden Stick. Really. (Looks more like a log.)
* LightningBruiser: He will '''always''' become one of these.
** JackOfAllStats[=/=]MasterOfNone: His Cap modifiers keep him from being too special once the children come into play and your other units begin to catch up to him, his only outstanding stat being luck, with only decent strength and defense and being poor in everything else. Whether he is one or the other depends on you though.
* MagikarpPower: He has pitiful starting stats but comes with a skill, Aptitude, that increases ALL of his growth rates by 20% with no penalty. He's extremely difficult to train as a Villager, but can become ''incredibly'' powerful. And unlike many other cases in the series, this is actually built into his character too; the sidequest you get him in focuses on him overcoming his fears of being useless, and ''getting him to level up at least once'' is how you recruit him.
** CrutchCharacter: Post-game, if you trained him up, he will act like this thanks to his mostly middling modifiers and not having anything to contribute but fighting, while everyone else is beginning to catch up to him stat-wise and skill-wise, or possess classes that are able to contribute with other things along with fighting.
* MeaningfulName: "Donnel" is a Gaelic name for "brave" and "dark haired one".
* MessyHair: [[spoiler:This is the main reason why he wears a pot all the time. His hair underneath that resembles an ox in his words, and he was never able to tame it.]]
* NiceGuy
* OlderThanTheyLook: In a support, Donny claims to be the same age as Lissa -- who is in her mid teens.
* PhotographicMemory: He memorizes a DoorStopper about Ylissean law that Maribelle lends to him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Yeeeeee-haw!"''\\
''"Get ready!"''\\
''"How 'bout this?"''\\
''"C'mon, Donny!"''
* ShoutOut: He'll shout "Let's [[LarryTheCableGuy get 'er done]]!" in battle sometimes.
* SouthernFriedGenius: Becomes one after Miriel teaches him in their support conversations.
* SuperIntelligence: [[HiddenDepths Surprisingly enough]], he's shown to have an exceptional memory.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: His reaction when Kellam guesses that his pot helmet is a lucky charm. [[spoiler:It isn't. See MessyHair above.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Wild game meat, particularly boar meat.
* TragicKeepsake: A small rock from his late father.
* UptownGirl: His relationship with his wife if paired with Lissa or Maribelle.

A swordsman raised in Regna Ferox, where Khan Basilio has vouched for his skill. While cool and curt around most people, the very sight of a woman turns him beetroot red. The deftest potato peeler. His birthday is October 10th.

->'''Class:''' Myrmidon
->'''Voiced by:''' TakehitoKoyasu (Japanese), TravisWillingham (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Easily seen when he's on an event tile with his family or a female unit, where he loses most of his usual composure. [[spoiler:His confession scene is this incarnate.]]
* AllergicToLove: Though only at first.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Subverted; certain characters will call it gynophobia. [[spoiler:However, the circumstances behind why he has it and physical symptoms he suffers make it sound very much like PTSD.]]
* AntiHero: Type II.
* {{Badass}}: One of the game's biggest.
** BadassLongcoat
** BadassBaritone: In the English dub, his voice is ridiculously deep like Basilio.
* BashBrothers: Potentially, with Vaike, Gregor, and Male Avatar.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** [[spoiler:SecondLove: Since his childhood sweetheart was killed, his potential wife is this.]]
* BodyguardCrush: If paired with Lissa.
* ButtMonkey: His early supports with female units can definitely come off like this.
* [[spoiler:CartwrightCurse:]] [[spoiler:Believes he has this. See below.]]
* CannotTalkToWomen: Despite this, he can be paired with any first generation female, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]]. See [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Women?]] below.
** DoesNotLikeWomen: Due to his [[TheStoic stoic]] demeanor, this is how he comes across to the rest of the characters at first.
* CoolSword: Can become an [[BowAndSwordInAccord archer]] if promoted to Assassin.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:He spent his childhood as an orphan growing up in the Chon'sin slums. The reason for his fear of women is that his first friend was a young girl his age, Ke'ri. She would be killed by bandits, and he developed gynophobia because of his inability to do anything to help her, always believing that any woman who gets close to him is bound to be killed.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Can learn Astra through Swordmaster.
* DubNameChange: He's called "Lon'zu" in the Non-English European versions.
* [[spoiler:FailureToSaveMurder: He was on the receiving end of this by Ke'ri's parents after she was killed. It's revealed later that that they forgave him when they learn about how much he meant to their daughter.]]
* FamousLastWords
--> "''So... This is how it ends...''"
* FantasticallyIndifferent: When he gains a "bad" level (0-1 stats):
-->''"... Hmph."''
* [[spoiler:TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: The real reason for his fear of women.]]
* FragileSpeedster[=/=][[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]]: His modifiers lean him towards this. Specifically, he gets great skill (tied with [[spoiler:Gangrel]] for best default non-Avatar modifier in the game in fact) and speed, at the cost of defense and resistance.
* FriendToBugs: In the ''Summer of Bonds'' DLC, he reveals to Gaius that he liked to catch them as a kid and finds them fascinating.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Inverted, actually. Despite his gynophobia, he functions just fine in Pair Up and Supports with women because they're life-or-death situations.[[spoiler:It becomes GameplayAndStoryIntegration when you learn he would very much prefer if anyone, male or female didn't die when he is able to do something about it.]]
* HeirToTheDojo: Said to be groomed as Basilio's heir for Western Ferox, but he doesn't seem to really believe in his own ability after losing his position as Western Ferox's representative to Masked Marth.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Despite his irritable and stern nature, he doesn't have a hateful bone in his body and refuses to hold grudges. [[spoiler: Concerning his family when he marries, he's a surprisingly attentive father and husband.]]
* IAintGotTimeToBleed: In his A Support with Lissa, Lon'qu gets hit with an arrow and slaughters several would-be assassins without batting an eyelash.
* MeaningfulName: ''Lon'' is Gaelic for blackbird, a symbol of unluckiness. [[spoiler:His past makes it tragically fitting.]] The second part comes from the Chinese ''qù'', which can be translated as quiet, alone, distance, or departure.
* MistakenForGay: In the Harvest Scramble, Vaike assumes he is due to his rampant gynophobia and word quickly spreads around the army. Lon'qu is not amused.
* [[spoiler:MyGreatestFailure: His inability to save his childhood friend when she died protecting him from bandits. Her parents (initially) blamed him for her death, so he left Chon'sin. Many supports bring up how he's haunted by nightmares of that.]]
* NoodleIncident: If his potential children ask about his past, he tells them he's done unsavory things to earn his meals, before promising he'll be a better father to look up to.
* OneHitKill: Can learn Lethality if he goes Assassin.
* ParentalAbandonment: Unsurprising, but his supports with Nowi playing house definitely hint at this, since he has no idea what a family is like.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"No hard feelings."''\\
''"I'll make this quick."''\\
"''How well will you die?''"\\
''"Be silent!"''
* TheQuietOne
* RedOniBlueOni: Forms a classic pair with Vaike as the red to Lon'qu's blue.
* TheStoic[=/=]NotSoStoic: Apart from his gynophobia, this guy seems to be cold as ice most of the time.
* SuddenlyShouting: It seems to be a reflex of his anxiety when a woman tries to approach him.
* TrainingFromHell: Having him as a sparring partner is supposedly brutal, according to his support with the male Avatar and event tiles with his children. Sully and the female Avatar are rather offended when he can't spar with them at the level he normally would be due to his gynophobia.
* TwiceShy: With Olivia.
* WhenHeSmiles: His support with the Female Avatar has her making it a goal to try and make him laugh.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Notably with the Female Avatar, as their clashing of personalities has some effect on distracting him from his phobia. [[spoiler:S-Rank proves it to be [[LoveEpiphany more effective than either of them anticipated]].]]
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Women?]]: He suffers gynophobia due to a traumatic event in his youth. Although eventually he makes an exception with the female character he marries. An exception is also made for his daughter if the resulting child is female.
** {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:He was set to be Basilio's champion, until the masked Marth came along [[CurbStompBattle and beat him effortlessly.]] Basilio even wonders why Lon'qu lost so easily despite easily beating every other opponent. After a [[SamusIsAGirl certain reveal]], the reason should be obvious.]]

* RobeAndWizardHat
* SquishyWizard: His modifiers. Notably, he gets the best Magic modifier out of all the male units (that aren't Avatar). Downplayed though in that there are magical units that are squishier than him, and his growths allow him to be a magical JackOfAllStats.
* TakingTheHeat: In their support, Ricken covers for Nowi, which, coincidentally, was for setting a tent on fire.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Some of his S Supports. No necessarily because the girls are terribly tall, it's just that Ricken is so young.
* TokenMiniMoe: He's the youngest member of the Shepherds.
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Averted, his C Support with Lissa reveals he hates the concept of killing (to the point he believes he's been holding back) and is only killing to avoid dying himself.

Lissa's best friend. A proud and sharp-tongued noble from one of Ylisse's most well-to-do houses. She is cold to strangers, particularly commoners, but warms quickly. The most likely to toss in her sleep. Her birthday is April 14th.

->'''Class:''' Troubadour
->'''Voiced by:''' Hiromi Igarashi (Japanese), MelissaFahn (English)
----
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Surprisingly for a socially elite character such as her -- Growing up, Maribelle was disliked by her peers due to her sharp tongue and critical manner. Lissa was the first person to actually become friends with her.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: A rare non-sexual example -- in the Golden Gaffe DLC Map, most of the playable characters have a line of dialogue spoken to the Risen chastising them for stealing their gold. Maribelle, on the other hand, complains that the Risen ''didn't'' rob her. "Do I look poor to you?!"
* ASpotOfTea
* {{Badass}}: After promoting.

* ChildhoodFriendRomance: If paired with Chrom.
* ClingyJealousGirl: In "Harvest Scramble", after Lissa tries to talk to Maribelle into making more friends, Maribelle calls Lissa "MINE and mine alone" and that she is sick and tired of sharing her. Though she is later a bit ashamed of saying that out loud.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In her C support with her son Brady, when he asks "Who did you piss off?", she is horrified... because it would be more correct to say "[[InsistentTerminology WHOM]] did you piss off?"
* DistressBall: See TheScapegoat.
* {{Expy}}: Seems to be one to [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Clarine]].
* FriendlessBackground: Before meeting Lissa. The main reason why she's so overprotective of her and her brother.
* FreudianSlip: In her [[RelationshipUpgrade S Rank]] with Chrom she wonders if he'll ever find a place for her in his heart. While he's right there.
-->''"...Wait. DidIJustSayThatOutLoud"''
* HairDecorations: Two white bows for her pigtails.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Even if she hides the "Heart of Gold" part at first.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: She tends to freely use the terms "lowborn" and "unwashed masses" without realizing how insulting she is being.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She can be cold to be people, but she tends to warm up in good time.
* LuminescentBlush: While every character has it at one point or another, special mention goes to her [[RelationshipUpgrade S Rank]] support with Chrom, where after the above mentioned FreudianSlip, her ''[[UpToEleven entire face]]'' turns completely red.
* TheOjou
* OjouRinglets
* ParasolOfPrettiness: Carries it with her at all times in her official artwork and in her dialogue portrait.

* RescueRomance: Possible, if paired with Ricken.
* RichBitch: At times. She's mostly SpoiledSweet.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Lissa.
* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler:Gangrel captures her early on in the game and accuses her of trespassing in Plegian territory and assaulting Plegian soldiers. This is used as justification for starting the war with Ylisse.]]
** [[spoiler:She reveals in a support conversation that she went there herself to convince them from advancing, and then they held her hostage.]]
* SlobsVersusSnobs: Downplayed, but has this dynamic with Vaike.
* SpoiledSweet: Because she comes off as [[SugarAndIcePersonality cold and snobbish]], many think that she's a RichBitch. Those who get past her frosty facade will have her eternal loyalty.
* SquishyWizard: Her modifiers. She has a great spread of positive modifiers in Magic, Skill, Luck and Resistance, but she has the lowest possible modifiers for Strength and Defense.

-->''"My strength is that of all Taguel!"''

A nationless shapeshifter and the last of the taguel. While cool and sensible by natire, she shows little interest in finding a partner and remedying the fate of her race. The fastest at wolfing down a meal. Her birthday is November 8.

->'''Class:''' Taguel
->'''Voiced by:''' YukiMasuda (Japanese), Jessica Gee (English)
----
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** InterspeciesRomance: Will always be the case, [[LastOfHisKind for obvious reasons.]]
* BizarreTasteInFood: She's one of the few characters who actually ''likes'' [[LethalChef the Avatar's cooking.]] She even loved the batch of [[TrademarkFavouriteFood carrot stew]] the others said ''tasted like dishwater.''
* BraidsOfAction: A unique variant with her hair entwined around her Taguel ears.
* ContinuityNod: Her supports imply she belongs to a subspecies of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Laguz]]. (Except her offspring are full Taguel rather than [[HalfHumanHybrid Branded]]). Her support with Ricken particularly underline this by revealing that there were "Taguel" who could transform into lions, amongst other things - implying that the Taguel as a whole may be what the Laguz evolved into.
** As a ShoutOut, one of the Taguel attack animations is identical to one of the Wolf Laguz attack animations.
* DoesNotLikeShoes
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Her supports with Stahl reveal that Taguel can't eat potatoes.
** TruthInTelevision: Potatoes are actually harmful to rabbits.
* DubNameChange: She's called "Palne" in the Non-English European versions.
* [[HairDecorations Ear Decorations]]: The metal bands around her ears, which [[MorphicResonance remain when she transforms]].
* FacialMarkings
* FantasticSlur: "Man-spawn." She also mentions a few humans used to call her race in the past when she first joins, but they don't come up often in-game.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When transformed.
* HeyYou
* IceQueen [=/=] {{Jerkass}}: She starts off very haughty and abrasive and is quite dismissive of anyone who isn't the Avatar in her Supports. [[FreudianExcuse True, she has her reasons]], but she's quite the jerk to people who just want to know her better.
** DefrostingIceQueen [=/=] JerkWithAHeartOfGold: What she ultimately develops into.
* IsItSomethingYouEat: Her S Support with the Avatar has him assume that she doesn't know what a human marriage is. However, her S supports with Gaius, Kellam, and Lon'qu reveal otherwise.
* KillerRabbit: Quite literally so.
* LastOfHerKind: Though she isn't too concerned with the survival of her species.
* LightningBruiser: Her modifiers lean her towards this, her only true flaws being that she lacks magic and resistance. However, because of the Taguel's lowish caps and the stat bonuses of the Beaststones, she leans more towards being a FragileSpeedster or a GlassCannon.
* LittleBitBeastly
** UnusualEars
* MeaningfulName[=/=]StealthPun: ''Literature/TheVelveteenRabbit''.
** BilingualBonus: Panné is a type of crushed velvet.
* MsFanservice: She is already getting declared this, though she's also the LastOfTheirKind and so has a bit more depth than that.
** InnocentFanserviceGirl: Shows up in supports occasionally, due to ValuesDissonance between human and Taugel culture. For example, in a support with Stahl she sees nothing wrong with cleaning fruit off his face by licking it off.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: She wears purple-pink armor in contrast to Yarne who wears dark blue armor.
* PowerEchoes: Like all transforming characters, she gets a reverb in her voice when in beast form.

''"The Taguel do not play!"''\\
''"I smell your fear."''\\
''"For the warren!"''
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: She talks to Cordelia's pegasus off screen.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Because she's "different" from the rest and because humans are the one who drove her kind to extinction. Even though she says that she doesn't hold grudge, she still has a hard time trusting humans.
** RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: Emmeryn manages this.
* [[SuperSenses Super Hearing]]: She can hear people's ''heartbeats''.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Carrot stew, according to her supports with Avatar.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter
** MagicPants: Her clothes seem to adapt to whichever form she is currently in.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade B, more apparent because she DoesNotLikeShoes.

->'''Voiced by:''' Shinobu Matsumoto (Japanese), GideonEmery (English)
----
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:His supports with Maribelle reveal that he once tried to ruin her father's good name, and tried sneaking into the royal treasury to frame him and have her father put on trial, though he later reveals that he was set up to do it and that if he didn't, his employer would potentially make an attempt on Maribelle's life.]]
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Discussed with Libra. Gaius acknowledges that morally questionable deeds must be committed for the army to succeed and sees himself as the only one suited for the job.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BigEater: When it comes to sweets. He ''never'' stops snacking, even while in the middle of battle.
* CoolSword
** Can gain [[BowAndSwordInAccord a bow]] if promoted to [[ProfessionalKiller Assassin]], or [[CombatMedic staves]] if promoted to [[MagicKnight Trickster]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Probably the snarkiest member of the army.
* DeclarationOfProtection: In his supports towards Maribelle. Can potentially develop into BodyguardCrush if they reach S rank.
* [[DistractedByTheShiny Distracted By the Sweetness]]: He's normally TheStoic... until candy is involved.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
-->'''Chrom:''' You'll risk your life for us if I give you...a bag of candy?
-->'''Gaius:''' I said "sweeten the deal", didn't I? Don't get me wrong, I'll take the gold too. Later. Unless you've got more of these. ...Have you got more of these?!
* EveryManHasHisPrice: See above.
** Gaius ''tries'' to invoke this on the Avatar, see WontTakeYesForAnAnswer.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Nngh... Damn and double damn... I hate when things...go sour...”''
-->''“Didn't see...that coming...No more...sweets for me...”''
* {{Fanservice}}: Gets a swimsuit scene in the "Summer of Bonds" DLC chapter.
** InformedFlaw: For all his protests to the female Avatar that he's usually in much better shape, his swimsuit scene makes it pretty clear that he doesn't have anything to be embarrassed of.
* HairDecorations: His black headband tied to the side.
* HeelFaceTurn: Over a bag of candy, no less!
** NotWhatISignedOnFor: He had no idea Validar's men were planning to ''kill'' Emmeryn, he just joined for the looting. Once he finds out he immediately states that while he'd rob the exalt blind, he'd ''never'' harm her.
* HiddenDepths: The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} reveals that the profit from all of the items that he habitually scrounges up to sell does ''not'', in fact, go to funding his candy addiction. He uses the money to anonymously ''fund the army''. [[spoiler:He's also very irritated with Frederick for revealing this to the Avatar]].
* HonorAmongThieves: Make no mistake, Gaius is a hardened crook through and through. He just also happens to be very noble.
* HouseHusband: General housework, embroidery, jewelry, making his own sweets.
* HurricaneOfPuns: All of his Japanese battle quotes use the word, "amai." This word means both sweet (as in taste, since he loves candy) and also describes someone who isn't trying very hard (so, it's used a lot in taunts which mean something like "Is that all?" or "You should've tried harder!") His English ones are in a similar mold, with lines like "What a cupcake!" and "Like candy from a babe!" Some are [[StealthPun much more subtle]], like when he levels up, he sometimes says "Sweet".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LoveableRogue
* LuckySeven: Can gain this as a skill if he goes Trickster. It gives him +20 Hit and Avoid for 7 turns at the start, but he has to rely on his own skill afterwards.
* TheNicknamer: He likes to give the other characters friendly nicknames, like "Bubbles" for Avatar, or "[[CuteClumsyGirl Stumbles]]" for Sumia, or "Twinkles" for Maribelle.
** He gets his own [[InSeriesNickname nickname]] from Sully, "Chuckles".
* OneHitKill: Can learn Lethality if he goes Assassin.
* PaperRam: Makes for an ideal Dodger. As a Thief, Gaius boasts fantastic [[FragileSpeedster speed and skill]] and surprisingly [[GlassCannon impressive strength]], too. His luck and defenses, however, are severely lacking.
* ThePigPen: His supports with Cordelia reveal he's quite a slob.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"What a cupcake!"''\\

* StreetSmart
* SweetTooth: Good lord, does he have one. It's a wonder he isn't diabetic.
* TattooedCrook: He hides a tattoo on his forearm that marks him a convicted criminal.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sweets of all kinds, of course. But he really seems to have a thing for honey.
* WontTakeYesForAnAnswer: In his supports with the Avatars, he insists on trying to bribe them so they won't tell anyone about his tattoo, even after repeated assurances that they won't tell anyone.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Bugs:]] He's terrified of insects, who often are attracted to his sweets.

An Ylissean pegasus knight who has been friends with Sumia since childhood. Her beauty, skill, and record are surpassed by few, but she cannot seem to win Chrom's heart. The deepest, most frequent sigher. Her birthday is July 7th.

->'''Class:''' Pegasus Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Eimi Okada (Japanese), JulieAnnTaylor (English)
----
* TheAce
** ThePerfectionist: Deconstructed, really. Her perfectionist nature make her quite disliked by the rest of the Ylisse Pegasus Knights for seemingly looking down upon the others, even though she only becomes that way because she seeks her seniors' approval. [[spoiler:And then her A support with Avatar reveals that despite their teasing, the other pegasus knights really did admire her, to the point that they were willing to give up their lives for her. Being called a genius reminds her of their sacrifice, which is why she dislikes being called one.]]
** BrokenAce
* ACupAngst: Roster Rescue and Summer Scramble.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: This is actually enforced as it is totally impossible to pair her up with her crush, Chrom leading to...
** LoveTriangle: She'll end up in one of these along with Chrom and whoever he marries by default. Potentially upgraded to love square if she marries and continues to pine for Chrom while her own husband pines for her, especially if she marries Frederick. Depending on the husband though, it's possible for her to get over Chrom altogether. See SecondLove just below.
** SecondLove: By default, any of her potential husbands is this. This is especially present in her supports with Avatar (in which she vows to love him above all others, without even a mention of Chrom), Stahl (in which she tells him with complete honesty that he's replaced Chrom in her heart), Kellam (in which she happily accepts his proposal, also without a mention of Chrom) and Gregor (in which ''she'' proposes to ''him''!) Naturally, this [[StatusQuoIsGod won't prevent]] her solo event tiles, levelups, Scramble Conversations etc. from [[GameplayAndStorySegregation having her fawning over Chrom, neither does it affect her support conversations where her love for him is also brought up frequently.]]
* BadassAngster: She's got the most reasons to be angsty out of everyone in the army, though she remains strong, and can kick ass with the rest of them.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except her first crush Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick
* DontYouDarePityMe: She hates being pitied, as it makes her feel that she has lost.
* {{Fanservice}}: Gets a swimsuit scene in the "Summer of Bonds" DLC chapter.
* FieryRedhead
* HairDecorations: A pair of wing-shaped clips.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sumia.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even more so than Sumia.
* HumbleHero: Despite being talented in many different fields (e.g. fighting, music, smithing, etc.), Cordelia doesn't consider herself exceptional, and insists that people do not call her a genius. [[spoiler:Her A support with Avatar provides one reason why she's like this.]]
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Of Chrom.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Her conversations with Chrom in the Summer Scramble DLC has her go into high gear, letting her fantasies take the better of her.
* LightningBruiser: Her modifiers lean her towards a physical GlassCannon variant as she gets decent strength and good skill and speed, without suffering anything in defense. Her magic and resistance stats are somewhat poor in exchange though. However, [[FragileSpeedster both Falcon Knight and Dark Flier has a low strength and defense cap]].
* LoveHurts
* LuckySeven: She was born on July 7th. July is the seventh month of the year and [[CaptainObvious the 7th is the 7th day of the month.]]
* MagicKnight: A flying version if promoted to Dark Flier. Is a flying CombatMedic version instead if promoted to Falcon Knight.
* MeaningfulRename: Cordelia is a feminine given name, popularly associated with Latin cor (genitive cordis) "heart". It was born by the tragic heroine of Shakespeare's Theatre/KingLear. In the play, the character is unwilling to profess her love to her father, stating "Love, and be silent", reflected in Cordelia's [[AllLoveIsUnrequited situation]] with Chrom.
** Even her original name, Tiamo, is meaningful, since it is the Italian phrase "Ti amo", for "I love you" without the space, which also reflects her situation with Chrom.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Quite enough!"''\\
''"Now you've angered me!"''\\

''"That's quite enough!"''
* RapunzelHair: Hands down the longest in the entire game. ''It's THIGHS long!''
* SurvivorGuilt: Lost her whole squad to a Plegian ambush, and hates herself for fleeing while they fought and died. This is despite the fact they told her to run so she could warn the Shepherds about an ambush.
* TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: She is initially hurting over Chrom, and initially believes she will never love again.
** It's also revealed that [[spoiler:in the BadFuture timeline, her daughter [[CallingTheOldManOut called her out on it]]... [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye and that was the last conversation they had before Cordelia died.]]]]
* ThrowTheDogABone: She ''finally'' gets ''an actual conversation'' with Chrom in the Summer of Bonds DLC.
** Assuming, of course, Cordelia has yet to marry anyone.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Sumia's girly girl.
* TraumaCongaLine: LoveHurts ''AND'' SurvivorGuilt? And that's only her introduction...
* UnrequitedTragicMaiden: She's in love with Chrom and is hurting badly over it, but will never say anything because she's sure it'll never work out. The game mechanics don't even let you pair them!

->'''Class:''' Manakete
->'''Voiced by:''' Kumi Tanaka (Japanese), Hunter Mackenzie Austin (English)
----
* BadassAdorable: She can ''turn into a dragon'' and lay waste to the enemy. Not only that, but when she joins your party, she comes equipped with a dragonstone, meaning it's the first attack you see her execute. One hell of an introduction.
* BareYourMidriff
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** InterspeciesRomance: All her pairings are this by default due to the [[LastOfHisKind rarity of manaketes.]]
* ChainmailBikini: Seems to be composed of scales, and likely her own.
* CloudCuckooLander: Has more than a few elements of this, to the point where Nah wonders what her dad saw in her.
-->'''Nah''': What do you like about her, anyway? You're so serious and responsible, and she runs around like a headless chicken!
* GenkiGirl
* GiantWaistRibbon: One on both sides.
* HiddenDepths: When she bothers to show her mature side.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: With the aid of a [[TransformationTrinket Dragonstone]] she can take on her Dragon form, allowing her to beat the crap out of most enemies with ease.
* [[LastOfHisKind One of the Last of Her Kind]]: While not as extreme the Taguel, Manaketes are really rare in Ylisse. Before Nowi's appearance, Tiki was even thought to be the last Divine Dragon able to assume Dragon form.
* LightIsGood: Appears to be of the Divine Dragon Tribe.
* MadeASlave: Prior to being recruited, Nowi was sold into slavery, where she was forced to transform and do other "tricks".
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: In her supports with Libra.
* MightyGlacier[=/=]StoneWall: Her modifiers are very much geared towards this, more than even Frederick and Kellam.
* MundaneUtility: In Nowi's A support with the Avatar, Nowi uses her Dragonstone to attack a snake. By ''throwing it at the snake''. She didn't know it was her Dragonstone until she'd already thrown it, but still. Needless to say, the Avatar and her then have to find it.
* NeverGrewUp: Physically, and maybe even mentally too, except...
** ObfuscatingStupidity: She looks and acts like a little girl pretty much all the time, but more than a few of her supports (particularly with Nah) will remind you that she really is over a thousand years old.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Errrr...rage!"''\\
''"You stupid bully!"''\\
''"I'm gonna crush you!"''\\
''"Who do you think I am?"''
* PunnyName: Nowi sounds like "no way".
* Really700YearsOld: She is a dragon after all.
* RescueRomance: If paired with Gregor.
** HugeGuyTinyGirl
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She has the most revealing outfit in the game (Clearly she hasn't changed her outfit since the last time she was enslaved). It would be even more AgeInappropriateDress [[LegalJailbait if it weren't for her being several hundred years old.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: In the Japanese version. Averted in the English dub.
* TomboyishPonytail
* TricksterMentor: From stealing Nah's dragonstone to demanding she play with her rather than allowing her to study, it seems at first that Nowi's just being her usual childish self. In actuality, she eventually points out that Nah was overusing her dragonstone and was risking wearing herself out due to her (for a Manakete) young age, and that doing nothing but studying had given her poor stamina.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter
** ScaledUp
** MagicPants
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Nowi occasionally shows resentment toward her long life span, since virtually everyone she befriends will end up dying long before her.
** MayflyDecemberRomance: Crosses into this if she marries someone.

* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].

* [[spoiler:DeadPersonImpersonation]]: [[spoiler:Sort of. His A support with Tharja reveals that Gregor is actually his brother's name, which he adopted out of respect after he failed to save him from bandits.]]
* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Gregor is actually an intelligent, well-rounded individual, despite his... [[TheAhnold impediments]] to effective communication.
* FaceOfAThug: He's a pretty friendly guy, but his appearance often leads to... misunderstandings. See NotWhatItLooksLike below.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Easy come...easy go...It was...a good ride”''
* FieryRedhead
* FunnyForeigner: Implied to be this, which explains his broken English.
-->'''Gregor:''' "''Is just, how you say, flatulence? No, wait. ...Flippery? ...Flatness? ...Gregor does not remember. Is that word when people say lies to make other person feel better.''"
* GeniusBruiser: While big and muscular, Gregor is shown to be pretty intelligent. He claims that if you aren't smart, then you can't survive as mercenary. Part of this is shown in his knowledge of health and diseases.
* GentleGiant
* HulkSpeak: Which, again, does nothing to help his case.
* HuskyRusskie: His broken English makes him sound like this.
* MatchmakerCrush: [[spoiler:Gets one on Cordelia while trying to help her with Chrom.]]
* MayDecemberRomance: Most of his pairings due to the young age of the cast.
* JackOfAllStats[=/=]MightyGlacier: His modifiers. Good strength and skill, offset by a somewhat low luck modifier and a poor resistance modifier.
* LifeDrain: Through Sol, if he goes Hero.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: He's first seen chasing after Nowi after the latter has run away from him. Due to FaceOfAThug above, Chrom instantly assumes he's just a bad guy attacking her. Of course, ItMakesSenseInContext.
* OldMaster: In their supports, Gregor becomes a mentor to Lon'qu.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Subverted. Gregor initially jokes his paycheck is his main motivation, but it soon becomes apparent he's gained [[FireForgedFriends another reason]] for fighting.

Male Avatar claims he's been having weird dreams about Gregor after drinking one of his health drinks where he dreamt that he was sleeping with his head on Gregor's lap. Ever since then he's been afraid to go to bed. [[spoiler:Turns out, Male Avatar had contracted some kind of disease after being bitten by an insect.]]

-->''"O wise Naga, guide us to safety and victory..." ''

An Ylissean priest with a calming mien. So lovely are his features that strangers often mistake him for a woman. His one flaw is a tendency to get caught up in details. The one with the scabbiest knees. His birthday is July 1st.

->'''Class:''' War Monk
->'''Voiced by:''' Megumi Yamato (Japanese), CindyRobinson (English)
----
* ApologeticAttacker: Just see his critical hit quotes.
* AnAxeToGrind: Like Lissa, he can use Axes as a War Monk.
* BadassPreacher: Heck, one of his [[PreMortemOneLiner critical quotes]] is "Repent, sinner!"
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* {{Bishonen}}
* CombatMedic
* CrossDressingVoices: Voiced by ladies in both dubs.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As a child, his [[ParentalAbandonment parents abandoned]] him because they believed he was under DemonicPossession and he wandered his life bitter and alone until he joined the priesthood.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: And ''sounds'' like one too!
* EvenTheGuysWantHim / [[StupidSexyFlanders Stupid Sexy Libra]]: Even after he tells Virion he's a man, Virion continues to flatter him for his looks and tells Libra he's "like a rose". Libra thinks he's funny, but Virion has to remind himself that Libra's still a dude.
-->'''Virion:''' Oh... even though I saw his pure male side... [[IfItsYouItsOkay he still moves me]].
* {{Expy}}: An androgynous Monk who is often mistaken for a girl? [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Now where have I heard that before...]] But this time it's even more convincing due to the addition of voice acting.
** He even has a lot of [[HoYay suspect dialogue]] with a former noble whose possessions were forcefully removed, though Virion is more happy-go-lucky than Raven, and it's mostly one-sided on his part.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Gods... I beg of you... Take me... but do not forsake... my friends...”''
* GenderReveal: Normally PlayedForLaughs in the UnsettlingGenderReveal category, but there are also a couple of "normal" reveals.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has one on the back of his neck. [[spoiler:It's from his mother pulling Libra off of her when she abandoned him, clawing his neck in the process.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: The guy is an angel. Libra wouldn't hurt a fly. He'd axe a mook, but NEVER a fly.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Libra doesn't consider himself morally superior to anyone else despite his religious background.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* JackOfAllStats: A magical one, as his modifiers are not that impressive, save for one point in magic in a game where most males either have it unchanged or have a bad one. He does have the best resistance out of the male first-gen characters (Male Avatar excepted).
* MagicKnight: CombatMedic version.
* NamesTheSame: Perhaps by more than coincidence, Libra shares his English name for the Japanese name for the Physic Staff, which was translated Libra in most scanlations of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Holy War]]''.
* OppositesAttract: In his supports with Sully.
* [[spoiler: ParentalAbandonment:]] In his supports with Tharja, you find out that [[spoiler: as a child, his parents thought that he was possessed by a demon and abandoned him. He wandered aimlessly, homeless, until he found the faith.]] It was so unpleasant that he was willing to be a test subject for Tharja's experimental memory potion just so he could forget about it.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Repent, sinner!"''\\
''"Gods forgive me."''\\
''"Rest in peace!"''\\
''"I am your omega!"''
* RunningGag: "''[[UnsettlingGenderReveal I'm a man...]]''"
* SexyPriest
* StepfordSmiler: Type B.
* ShockAndAwe: He's pictured with a Bolt Axe, a ranged and magic-based weapon.
* VocalDissonance: As mentioned above, he has a ''very'' feminine voice.

-->''"I can feel the darkness growing ever stronger..."''

A mopey Plegian dark mage with a jealous streak. She usually keeps to herself and chants disturbing hexes, but openly stalks the Avatar (aka you - the player), in whom she has an unhealthy interest. The one with the darkest thoughts. Her birthday is April 2nd.

->'''Class:''' Dark Mage
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KanaAkutsu (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (English)
----
* [[AntiHero Anti Heroine]]: Oh, so very much.
* [[BadPowersGoodPeople Bad Powers, Weird but not so Bad People]]: In her support with Donnel she more or less ridicules him, and his hometown, for believing in this, wondering how it hasn't been burned down yet. In the following support however it turns out the entire group became incredibly ill and she was the one to cure them, by aiming a curse at the illness. [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain She orders him to never let anyone know it was her.]]
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BirdsOfAFeather: If paired with Henry.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Her 0-1 stat-up quote when leveling up is "You'd better not hold this against me...", which appears to be addressed at the player themself. Doubles as TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou given her [[CuteAndPsycho nature.]]
* BrutalHonesty: She seems to have next to no brain-to-mouth filter.
* BornUnlucky: Has the lowest Luck of the first-generation women, both modifier-wise, and growth-wise.
* CreepyGood: Joins Chrom's party for a somewhat egotistical reason, openly stalks the Avatar, proficient in curses, possesses extreme jealousy[[spoiler:, uses her daughter Noire as a guinea pig for said curses and neglects her]]... she is definitely this.
* {{Curse}}: As her description states, she enjoys practicing these when left to her own devices.
* CleavageWindow: When promoted to Sorcerer. As if she didn't tick enough FetishFuel boxes already...
* [[spoiler:[[CrusadingWidower Crusading Widow]]: After losing her husband, Future Tharja [[DespairEventHorizon lost her mind]] and began a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, up to the moment where she sacrificed herself to ensure her daughter's survival.]]
* CycleOfRevenge: Her reason for leaving Plegia and joining Ylisse is that she has no interest in being drawn into Plegia's feud with Ylisse. This isn't because she thinks vengeance is wrong, but because she herself has no personal grudge against Ylisse and doesn't like the fact that she's fighting because of other people's need for revenge.
* [[DarkIsEvil Dark Is Bad]]: Pretty much the same case as Henry. [[spoiler:Tharja is aware of how dangerous a curse can be, however, and Present Tharja speculates that her future self didn't teach her daughter any of her curses for this reason.]]
** [[spoiler: [[ParentalNeglect Neglectful Parent]]: How much is uncertain, but Future Tharja is revealed to have had shades of this, having neglected Noire somewhat to study more methods of destroying enemies. Her support with Morgan if Tharja is the mother shows this side of her as well.]]
*** [[spoiler:Tharja's supports with Noire however, indicate that Future Tharja, deep down, really did care about her daughter. In fact, it is revealed in Tharja and Noire's The Future Past conversation that Future Tharja actually went MamaBear and performed a HeroicSacrifice to save Noire.]]
** [[spoiler:[[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]]: Future Tharja had a habit of practicing her curses on Noire, and even Present Tharja does it. Noire's father eventually resorts to taking away the tools she uses for cursing to try to stop her.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: "Yay, danger."
* ElementalPowers: Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe: Comes with an Elthunder tome.
** CastingAShadow: Since Dark Mage and Sorcerer have access to [[BlackMagic Dark Magic]].
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Very pale, very pretty... and can be creepy as Hell.
* EvilLaugh: Unlike the others, she isn't very loud with it, but the result is even more creepy.
* FlatJoy
* {{Gainaxing}}: According to Nowi:
--> ''Nowi'': You're the boingiest of them all. ...Trust me.
* GoodIsNotNice: Well, mostly weird, but still not very nice.
* HeelFaceTurn: Has to be recruited from the Plegian army.
* HiddenDepths: Several of her supports show she ''does'' have a... less creepy side. Her supports with Kellam show she cares about her family, for one.
** HeroicComedicSociopath
* {{Jerkass}}: Dark minded and not particularly nice. She even was neglectful to [[spoiler: her future daughter, Noire, by using her as a guinea pig for her hexes]].
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold[=/=]HiddenHeartOfGold: A ''very'' well-hidden one, mind.
* LadyOfBlackMagic
* LiesToChildren: She ''tries'' to lie to [[Really700YearsOld Nowi]] by saying her parents are not dead and are simply in a "[[NeverSayDie far away place]]". When it doesn't work, she just goes along with Nowi's poor [[SandInMyEyes attempt to not cry]].
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if she promotes to Dark Knight.
* MsFanservice: Actually acknowledged in the Japanese version, where her unique "trait" was "nicest body in the army".
* [[spoiler:MoralityChain: Her husband becomes one to her, if somewhat unsuccessfully. Though, he's more successful than the Future version of him.]]
* NoSocialSkills: In her B Support with the Avatar, she actually tries to be normal. Unfortunately, the [[OutOfCharacterMoment display]] freaks out the Avatar, because he/she had gotten [[WeWantOurJerkBack used to Tharja being her old creepy self.]]
* NotSoStoic: Listen to her two voice clips on the official site. The first is her sounding like a typical LadyOfBlackMagic, the second is her laughing gleefully.
** CuteButPsycho[=/=]BloodKnight: She laughs when using her ''Vengeance'' skill/Critical.
* OrgasmicCombat: Her attacking VoiceGrunting sounds...suggestive.
* PaperRam[=/=]GlassCannon: An odd mix, with the Paper Ram qualities leaning towards Charger. Tharja gets fantastic magic, and good Speed, and also gets a positive Defense modifier as well... but her Skill and Luck modifiers blow, making her inaccurate, and her Resistance is not that great either. Her Defense and Speed stats, while decent, are also not as good as she'd like them to be, meaning that she will have problems surviving against both physical and magical attacks latter on.
** Her poor accuracy can be supplemented by reclassing as a Sniper and learning the [[BoringButPractical Hit Rate +20 skill]].
* PerpetualFrowner: With a few exceptions outside of giving a {{Psychotic Smirk}}, she's always frowning.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"[[YouAreAlreadyDead You're already dead...]]"''\\
''"Do you like darkness?"''\\
''"Die now."''\\
''"[[EvilLaugh Mmmh-mmmh-mmmh-mmmh...]]"''
* PunchClockHero: Unusual for recruitable dark magic users in Fire Emblem history. Nevertheless, she is far more interested in pursuing her own interests than fighting for a cause, which is what allows her to be recruited.
* RapunzelHair
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: Future Tharja sacrificed herself to protect Noire, which may have been her way of atoning for the abuse she put her through.]]
* RedMage: In an unusual way. Her Dark Mage and Sorcerer classes combine standard magic with... BlackMagic!
** MagicKnight: Becomes a mounted version if promoted to Dark Knight, but that means she is no longer a RedMage.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In her C Support with Noire it's revealed that [[spoiler:part of the reason Future Tharja was so neglectful to her daughter was because Noire's father was killed first in the apocalyptic future, prompting this sort of behavior until Future Tharja was killed herself.]]
* SceneryCensor: In her swimsuit scene for the American version, a random cloak blocks her butt as she adjusts her bikini. Funnily enough, many note that the censor ''[[ThisTropeIsBleep actually ramps up the suggestiveness of the shot]]'' as it ''almost'' looks like she's GoingCommando instead.
* SensualSpandex
* SingleTargetSexuality[=/=]IfItsYouItsOkay: Her StalkerWithACrush relationship towards the Avatar doesn't change regardless of their gender.
** SecondLove: Even if she falls for someone else, the Avatar will be her first and foremost love. However she ''is'' clearly smitten by some men, in particular [[spoiler:Donnel]], of whom she doesn't mention the Avatar whatsoever in their supports (even S-rank) and ''she'' is actually the one who proposes to him.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS
* StalkerWithACrush: Her relationship with the Avatar to begin with. Even if he marries her, she keeps some elements of this with him. (Hell, even if she marries ''someone else'' she keeps those elements! See her [[BrutalHonesty straightforward warnings]] towards [[DudeLooksLikeALady Libra]] and [[HeroicComedicSociopath Henry]] about this whole deal before they decide to get married in their S support.)
* StrangeGirl: Most of the cast finds her at least slightly creepy at first. In her S Support with Henry, she even admits that their proposal was probably the strangest engagement ever, then decides that it's fitting [[BirdsOfAFeather because they're not exactly normal people.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her outfit doesn't leave much to the imagination, though her portrait happens to have her tome and arms blocking most of her outfit.
** Although it isn't ''that'' special since it's the standard garb of Dark Mages, both [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/8/8c/Dark_Mage_Male.jpg male]] and [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/e/e9/Dark_Mage_Female_1.jpg female]]. She just doesn't wear the headdress.
* [[spoiler:WarriorTherapist: In her supports, when she's not obsessing over hexes or the Avatar, she's willing to lend an unjudging ear to the problems of others. Subverted in cases where her ear-lending is done to advance an experiment, or happens because she's advancing an agenda of her own.]]
* {{Yandere}}: For the Avatar. During their S Support, she says, "I can’t believe you made me love you! Course, if you back out… I’ll murder you in your sleep."
** Tharja apparently has (heavily implied to be erotic) dreams about Avatar after Tharja falls in love with him/her. Tharja also expects Avatar to live up to the promise that the ''dream'' of him/her made.

----

* BattleCouple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BornLucky: Her main statistical asset is a truly ''incredible'' Luck growth.
* ChristmasCake
* CrutchCharacter: Zig-Zagged, along with Frederick, she plays this role. Early game she can dodge almost anything that comes her way. However, mid-game, unless you get a few lucky finds and get a bunch of Levin Swords (or buy them from Spotpass characters), she tapers off a little bit. Late game she plays as more of a support character, being able to unlock doors and chests, and can heal and rescue units with a staff. (Given she has a high magic base, she'll always heal a decent amount, and possess decent range for Rescue.)
* DerailingLoveInterests: Averted. She's a romance option for the Avatar, which led to doubts about her relationship with Jake. As it turns out, however, [[{{Expy}} this is a different Anna entirely]], so it's all cool.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Attempted in her support conversation with Tiki. She tries to exploit the Valmese people's worship of the "Voice of the Divine Dragon" and said dragon's innocent nature to get rich quick... and almost gets eaten once Tiki figures it out.
** [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud She would have gotten away with it if she had just kept her mouth shut.]]
* DoubleEntendre

* FamousLastWords:
-->''“It's true...what they say... In the end, material possessions mean nothing...”''
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: She has a miniature teddy bear ''attached to the hilt of her sword''.
* HurricaneOfPuns: In a similar manner to Gaius and his sweets, the majority of her battle quotes are related to her profession.
* JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers lean her towards this, her only speciality being her excellent luck. Her starting class is more of a FragileSpeedster though.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Her supports in general.
* LuckySeven: Can learn this naturally. through her starting class. It raises Hit and Avoid by 20 for 7 turns at the start, but she has to rely on her own skill afterwards.
* MagicKnight: However, her offensive magic comes from magic-casting weapons.
** CombatMedic
** CoolSword
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Combines with UncannyFamilyResemblance, InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals, and NamesTheSame, akin to [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Nurse Joy]]. When confronted by the fact that there are those Annas running through the Outrealm Gate to the other ''Fire Emblem'' time periods, she says that they are her sisters.
* MemeticHandGesture: Resting her index finger on her face, like her sisters.
* MoneyFetish: She ''loves'' money above all else. [[spoiler:Although during her confession, she says that if the Avatar keeps it up that she'll love him more than money. One of her event tile conversations with the Avatar as her husband does indeed have her tell him that she loves him more than money.]]

* BareYourMidriff
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Basilio [[spoiler:and the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BishieSparkle: It's an actual part of her Dancer class model.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: In her C-Support with Henry.
-->'''Olivia:''' I know you! You're that creepy kid who likes blood and magic and... blood magic!
* TheChick
* CoolSword: The first Dancer in an internationally-released Fire Emblem to be able to ''effectively'' fight back.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If Olivia has 18 Support Points or more with Chrom by the end of Chapter 11, and none of the other candidates have initiated a C Support with him, she will have the highest marriage priority with Chrom (otherwise, she will be the lowest priority). A clever decision, considering how you only have one chapter to build up their support points before Chrom's marriage.
* FragileSpeedster: Downplayed in regards to her modifiers where she's more like a JackOfAllStats, but played straight in regards to her classes.
* {{Irony}}: She's a ShrinkingViolet whose passion is [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl sensual dancing in front of a public.]]
* LastGirlWins: UpToEleven if paired with Chrom. She joins in ''the very chapter'' Chrom is forced to marry someone, meaning you have to pretty much keep them glued to each other the entire mission, you can't initiate any romantic support conversation until Chrom's marriage (or make sure all of his other potential love interests are already paired up with other men), in order to pair them.
** StrangledByTheRedString: If you manage to pull this off, they'll be married ''[[WhatTheHellPlayer before they even have a chance to support!]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And the game Lampshades the hell out of it.]]
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Lissa]]''': "Turn my back one minute and you're married. The next minute? A baby!"
* LuminescentBlush: Hell, she blushes even in her SuperMovePortraitAttack.
* MagicDance
* MagikarpPower: Her stat growths as a Swordmaster point to this. She'll end up maxing (or nearly maxing) skill and speed and will get ''surprisingly'' high strength (for someone who starts as a Dancer).
** TruthInTelevision: Professional dancers in real life are very skilled, generally are in great shape, and can be incredibly strong depending on their focus.
* MaleGaze: Most characters' official artwork has them viewed from the front. Olivia's picture up there... isn't.
* PerformanceAnxiety: Even though she's fine using her dance to give her allies an extra turn, she's extremely shy about putting on ''actual'' performances in front of others.

* RoseHairedGirl
* ShrinkingViolet: Not excessively so, but Olivia is quite shy. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] with her title in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue during the ending credits: [[ShapedLikeItself Shrinking Violet]].

->'''Class:''' Wyvern Rider

----
* AnAxeToGrind: And in her official art, she notably wields the [[spoiler:'''''[[InfinityPlusOneSword Helswath]]''''', one of Jugdral's twelve holy weapons]]!
** Can gain [[BladeOnAStick Lances]] if promoted to Wyvern Lord.
* {{Badass}}: She gained her vicious mount wyvern Minerva by defeating her and surviving her fire breath. She only got a burn scar on her shoulder (bald spot in the Japanese version) from the encounter. ''[[LittleMissBadass While nine years old.]]''
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As her profile says, she's the scariest to anger of all people in the army. Considering said army includes a {{Yandere}} and a thousand year old dragon who almost ''ate'' someone who got on her bad side, that's ''really'' saying something.
* BodyguardCrush: If paired with Virion.
* ChristmasCake: She believed she'd become this due to Minerva scaring off suitors.
* DeadpanSnarker: For such a sweet and ladylike YamatoNadeshiko, she's got a wicked sense of humor.
* DubNameChange: She's called "Zelcher" in the Non-English European versions.
* DragonRider
* FieryRedhead: Subverted, as she's usually very calm and tranquil unless you get on her bad side.
* FluffyTamer
* FriendToBugs
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Even if Cherche is promoted to a Griffon Rider, her conversations will still reference Minerva as her primary mount.
* GlassCannon[=/=]MightyGlacier: Of the physical variety. Has a great strength modifier, and a good defense modifier, but her skill and speed are low, and her resistance is poor, which, when combined with the Wyvern Rider class, means that she'd better get the first hit when facing a mage, especially if the mage happens to be packing a [[AchillesHeel wind tome]].
* GirlyBruiser: And how! In battle, she's one of the toughest females in the game. But her hobbies consist of classic housewife traits like sewing and cooking, and she has a very caring personality. It makes sense when you consider that she originally trained to be a cleric but became a wyvern rider instead due to her relationship with Minerva.
* HairDecorations: A hairband with dragon/wyvern wings on it.
* LadyOfWar: A lovely, classy lady who can kick all kind of ass and look good doing it.
* {{Meido}}: She was a servant to Virion and the House Rosanne
* NightmareFetishist: She generally dotes on her wyvern like she's a puppy dog and often reacts in surprise when Minerva almost attacked other people. Her standard reaction to anything abnormal is a soft, dreamy "Cute...".
* NinjaMaid: Although less on the ninja and more the axe-wielding type.

-->''"Do you think we could breed Risen in here? I love pets!" ''

A Plegian dark mage with a fetish for bloodshed and an indelible grin. While disarmingly optimistic, he shows a gruesome lack of mercy while on the battlefield. The one with the lowest heart rate. His birthday is November 13th.

->'''Class:''' Dark Mage
->'''Voiced by:''' AkemiOkamura (Japanese), BrycePapenbrook (English)
----
* AbusiveParents[=/=]ParentalNeglect: His parents mostly ignored him, and dumped him off in the woods alone to be RaisedByWolves. [[spoiler:The wolf tried to visit him when he returned home, and she was killed by the townsfolk for her trouble]]. ''Then'' his parents sent him to a BoardingSchoolOfHorrors, where he was abused when he did something wrong and nearly died on more than one occasion. Henry... did not come out of that childhood with his sanity completely intact.
* AffablyEvil: Though not exactly "evil", he's still a very friendly fellow. He can also be very sweet to his friends; unfortunately, this tends to result in him offering to do horrific and/or creepy things on their behalf.
* {{Asexual}}: Zigzagged. While he does confess his emotional love ([[BlackHumor in his own weird way]]), he doesn't really seem to "get" ''sexuality''; as shown in a few of his proposals. To Miriel, he asks her to marry and start a family with him ForScience. To Nowi, he suggests that they make babies purely so that she'll have some Manakete friends to play with.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BirdsOfAFeather: Him. Tharja. End of the story.
* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors: Was raised in WizardingSchool version one so his [[ParentalNeglect parents wouldn't have to take care of him]]. According to him, he has nearly died on multiple occasions while in said school because they would put him in a room filled with ''metal spikes'' as punishment whenever he "did something naughty". Implied to be why he turned out so... unhinged.
** In the Japanese version, they send him to an ''institution'' instead.
* BloodKnight: He joins Chrom because he loves war.
-->'''Henry''': ''"I don't care about politics. I just want to throw fireballs at the bad guys."''
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: To a degree. Henry genuinely doesn't seem to understand that what he's doing could be considered bad, just as long as it's helping the person he speaks to. Cherche comments that he needs to spend more time with people, whereas Panne describes him as a wild animal that needs to be taught humanity.
** CharacterDevelopment: The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} shows that he's beginning to comprehend just how divorced he is from "normal" people and conventional concepts of morality. He exhibits signs of trying to rectify this, which is likely a direct result of the amount of time he's spending with the Shepherds.
--->'''Henry (to Kellam):''' "When I was a kid, my only friends were wolves, so they ended up raising me. Thing is...that made it tough for me to learn about basic human warmth and affection... Like just now. I tried to be nice to you and show you that I care and stuff, right? But I got it all wrong and instead made you freak out. Sorry about that..."
* BodyHorror: His event tile and level up quotes reveal he's quite enthusiastic about this potentially happening to ''him!'' [[NightmareFetishist ... Meeeeeep.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: Often seems disconnected from all rhyme or reason save his own, although the clouds his head inhabits are black, ominous, and probably rain blood.
* CombatSadomasochist: And he does ''not'' use safe-words.
** Not ''entirely'' true. Just mostly. When [[spoiler:his child]] asks to train with them, he specifically tells them that a safe word is necessary, because [[BlackMagic his magic]] is pretty nasty. It's actually rather heartwarming. [[CreepyGood In a Henry sort of way]].
* ComedicSociopathy: Henry really gets a kick out of schadenfreude.
* CreepyGood: Like Tharja, he is definitely this, what with being a BloodKnight, being unnecessarily cruel, practicing curses, and doing it all with a smile!
* CriticalHit: Can get a really high Critical Hit rate on his own, thanks to his skills.
* CrossDressingVoices: Only in the Japanese version; it was averted in the English dub.
* {{Curse}}: His supports with Sumia indicate that he's also a practitioner.
** MercyKill: In his supports with Maribelle he mentions that he knows a curse that kills people the instant they are fatally wounded.
* CutsceneIncompetence: Due to the Father/Noire support being (more or less) the same regardless of father, Henry never removes Tharja's curses from either him or Noire, despite being so powerful that he can brush them off if he wanted to.
* [[DarkIsEvil Dark Is Bad]]: While not actually evil, Henry is [[TokenEvilTeammate more malicious]] than the other main characters. This is more prominent in the English version, where his PetTheDog moments are toned down.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Non-villainous example, he joins because he ''somehow'' knows he'll be able to fight more if he's with Chrom's party than with Plegia.
* DissonantSerenity: It takes a special kind of insanity to be smiling whilst telling the person you hope includes you in his army that if he doesn't want you he can just kill you on the spot.
** DissonantLaughter: Hell, his ''death cry'' is a laugh, though noticeably weaker than his usual cackles.
* ElementalPowers - Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire: Comes with an Elfire tome.
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe
** CastingAShadow: Since Dark Mage and Sorcerer have access to BlackMagic.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Henry Has Standards]]: In a conversation with the Einherjar [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Legion]], Henry chides him for assuming that they are similiar, stating that he does have morals and a code of honor, even if they are "a little messed up" as stated in his own words, compared to Legion just doing what he's told. It is also stated in his paired endings that he became a surprisingly good father to whoever child he has.
* EvilLaugh: He laughs like a madman when he defeats enemies.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Even during his Confession! He's like [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Oscar]] that way, though there's one of his portrait (panicked) that has him opened his eyes. [[spoiler:They're black.]]
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Argh, this is the end for me... So dark... So quiet... So beautiful..."''
* FreakyFridayFlip: Uses magic to do this with Sumia in their supports.
* FreudianExcuse: His parents completely neglected him and his only friend and substitute parent was [[spoiler:a wolf near the town he was born in.]] Then [[spoiler:the townspeople proceeded to kill the wolf and afterwards, he was sent to an institution / wizard school where there were several rather nasty and deadly experiments done to and by the others. This also included being locked in a room filled with metal spikes as one of their punishments.]] Doubles as a DarkAndTroubledPast, as in his supports it's implied that [[spoiler: he genuinely ''doesn't'' understand human empathy at all, and it's ''only'' in his time with the Shepherds that he's starting to comprehend it.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Crows are quite fond of him. Implied that he gets along great with any animal, including [[DevilInPlainSight Cherche's wyvern Minerva]].
* [[GladHesOnOurSide Glad He's On Our Side]]: He engenders this reaction from quite a few people, and [[BloodKnight with]] [[SociopathicHero good]] [[TokenEvilTeammate reason]].
** In fact, he used to be one of Gangrel's subordinates, but was incapacitated before he could go head to head with the party. Glad he's on our side, indeed.
* [[spoiler: [[GoodParents Good Father]]: In all of his paired endings[[note]]With the exception of the Avatar's, which is always the same[[/note]], it's stated that he turns out to be a surprisingly good father. In fact, upon meeting his future child, he immediately shows his own [[CreepyGood unique]] brand of fatherly devotion:]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Henry (when asked about his life):''' "I mostly just sling curses and hang out with crows. But I'm not about to add deadbeat dad to my list of hobbies! I'll take care of you. Even if I die a horrible death, I'll protect you from the... [[InnocentlyInsensitive Hey, why the long face?]]"]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: His more unhinged tendencies are mostly played for ([[GallowsHumor dark]]) laughs.
** SociopathicHero: His creepier moments (and he has quite a few) land him in this territory.
--->'''Ricken:''' "Henry, it's my job to kill Plegian soldiers... So I have to believe that they deserve to die. [[WhatMeasureIsAMook But now you've reminded me that they aren't faceless blobs with axes]]. [[EvenMooksHaveLovedOnes They have friends, and families, and...]] H-how am I going to fight them if I know that? What if I hesitate?"
--->'''Henry:''' "You're weird. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday I don't see the problem here at all.]]"
* {{Irony}}: He was born on the 13th, and appears in chapter 13, the number typically associated with bad luck and misfortune. However, he has pretty good Luck and November 13th is World Kindness Day.
* JackOfAllStats[=/=]MightyGlacier: His modifiers. He has the same magic modifier as Libra, but gets good skill as well as decent defense for a mage. However, though he is not hit in speed, he has bad luck (but not as bad as Tharja) and a bad Speed base which mitigates his avoid somewhat, though he can lean towards a hard-hitting LightningBruiser with some Speedwings and training (and Pair-Ups), and his skills can give him a very high crit rate. He also gets a point in Strength, which makes him one of the best {{Magic Knight}}s out of the first-gen characters if you decide to go with such a class.
* {{Keet}}: A somewhat creepy example.
* LargeHam: Almost never, but he does have one shining moment in his A-Support with Olivia:
-->'''Henry:''' "[[BigNo NOOOOO]]! [[SayMyName OLIVIAAAAAA]]! [[PleaseWakeUp Come back to me, Olivia]]! [[GoIntoTheLight Stay out of the light]]! [[SuddenlyShouting STAY OUT OF THE LIIIIIIGHT!]]"
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if he promotes to Dark Knight.
* LighterAndSofter: In a backstory sense: In the original Japanese script, Henry was raised in an abusive orphanage where he was subject to torture. In the English localization, he was sent to an elite magic school by his unloving parents. In general, Henry's dialogue and motivations were changed to be less dark than in the original script; see the Pet the Dog example below.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Played with. Henry's already unhinged, but the things he'll offer to do to help one of his love interests is... pretty frightening.
* MercyKill: Offers to do this in the ''Golden Gaffe'' {{DLC}} after Risen steal his things. Considering what those things probably are...
-->'''Henry:''' "Are you the one who stole my bag? Because the stuff in there'll probably kill you slowly and painfully. Just saying. Aw, but I'm a nice guy, so come here. I'll finish you off quickly. Hold still..."
* MundaneUtility: His supports reveal that he has hexes and curses for a large variety of non-combat situations, including curses that help one sleep and curses that can "cure" having fallen in love.
** When he temporarily fixes some dishes that [[CuteClumsyGirl Sumia had broken upon tripping while carrying them]], he explains to her that using curses for daily stuff is actually a well-spread practice among Dark Mages.
* NiceGuy: While the way he tends to act can freak people out, he genuinely likes helping people. Even if the way he goes about it is completely misguided and a little... unorthodox.
** Unlike Tharja, the only time he places hexes on his fellow Shepherds is if they ask him to do so.
** A support with Miriel has Henry saying that he would like to make a hex that makes life easier on pregnant women.
* NightmareFetishist: See BodyHorror for one. And his response when asked about his dreams?
-->"I want to die a horrible, bloody death that's completely painless. ...I don't like ouchies."
** There's also his mildly terrifying response to fighting one of the Deadlords.
--->'''Henry:''' "Dang! That's quite a nasty curse someone put on you. So if I strike you down, you'll come back as strong as before? Sounds like an eternity of agony... Where do I sign up?"
* NoodleIncident: He was apparently incapacitated and therefore unable to assist Gangrel during his final fight against Chrom, but it's never made clear exactly what happened to render him unable to fight.
* ObliviouslyEvil: What do you mean killing birds so Lissa can sleep is a bad thing?
** In his A Support with Panne, he offers to murder Chrom in order to plunge humanity into unprecedented levels of chaos and bloodshed, all in the name of making a friend happy. He ''does not understand'' what's wrong with doing so if the end result would be Panne feeling better.
* OddFriendship: With anyone, really, but his supports with Frederick stand out the most.
* PerkyGoth: Sully says he's awfully sunny for a dark mage.
* PerpetualSmiler: Whether it's a goofy smile, an [[TheUnSmile UnSmile]], or a SlasherSmile, he always has some form of a smile on his face.
* PetTheDog: Surprisingly, when Olivia thinks she is going to stop him from [[MercyKill mercy killing]] an injured puppy in their C support, he calls her crazy because [[HeroesLoveDogs he loves dogs]]. He seems to have a soft spot for animals in general, actually.
** In the original Japanese text, he does offer to kill it -- but as a mercy, because its injuries are so severe.
** His paired endings say that, for all his flaws, he can be a pretty decent dad for his kids.
** The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} is pretty much nothing ''but'' PetTheDog moments for Henry, to the point that it seems that he's genuinely beginning to gain some sort of understanding of human emotion and empathy. Libra notes that Henry has been deliberately risking his life to save civilians and his comrades; when Henry tries to laugh it off, Libra points out that he's ''seen'' Henry observing the battlefield and moving to help those in danger. Henry's response to this is a very telling VisibleSilence.
* ThePollyanna: Revealed in supports. An interesting example though, as he is quite unhinged.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Have some death!"''\\
''"Special delivery!"''\\
''"[[EvilLaugh Hahahahaha!]]"''\\
''"I'm gonna kill you!"''
* PungeonMaster: He loves puns. [[HurricaneOfPuns His recruitment is probably the best example]], but he even sneaks a few into his level up quotes.
* PunchClockHero: Similiar to Tharja. Though, he joins because he figured he'll last longer with them than against them.
* PureIsNotGood: Tharja says that his power derives from his purity. He is kinda crazy.
* [[RaisedByWolves Raised By A Wolf]]: [[spoiler:And then his fellow townsmen killed her.]]
* RavensAndCrows: He comes to the map where he can be recruited with an entire flock of them. Tharja's support implies that they are his pagan that protect his identity from everyone prior that.
* RedMage: In an unusual way. His Dark Mage and Sorcerer classes combine standard magic with... BlackMagic!
** MagicKnight: Becomes a mounted version if promoted to Dark Knight, but that means he is no longer a RedMage.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In his supports with Ricken, Ricken notes that Henry didn't care at all that his fellow Plegians were killed by the Shepherds, and asks Henry if he'd care at all if Ricken were killed. Surprisingly, Henry tells Ricken that he'd actually be very sad and ''angry'', and would hunt down the person responsible. And kill them. Bloodily. ...Oh yes. There would be blood.
** It's strongly implied that he went on one of these after [[spoiler:his wolf friend was murdered; he all but says that he bloodily slaughtered all of the people responsible for her death]]. He was [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior just a kid at the time]].
* SexEqualsLove: In his S support with Nowi. [[spoiler:Throughout the support, Nowi gets sad that she has no Manakete friends - so Henry makes an illusion for her. The problem is, she doesn't like it because it's not real, so he goes away and has a think about what to do. When he returns, he says that, if they have lots of kids, she'll have plenty of Manakete friends to play with]]. Yes, really.
* SleepCute: In his A-Support with Lissa, Lissa ends up falling asleep on him.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: And flower. And insect. In fact, as long as it's alive, Henry can have a conversation with it.
* StepfordSmiler: In the Japanese version he's a straight Type A pretending to be a Type C. The English version is rather unclear on the issue, though it seems to lean more toward Henry genuinely being exactly as cheerful as he says he is with a side order of crazy along for the ride.
* StoryBreakerPower: An InformedAbility restricted to his support conversations, but according to those, he has a few hexes that have rather large potential, including the ability to kill people from huge distances with just a hair, switch bodies with others and even to temporarily reverse time. He is also a master at dispelling enemy magic and can even return it straight to the sender.
** His supports with the Avatar also reveal he eventually learns how to summon Risen (albeit without control over them) and send them against their enemies. Sadly, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation he can't do this in actual combat]]. Of course, the Avatar specifically orders him not to, considering the Risen would eventually start tearing into nearby towns.
* [[StrangeGirl Strange Guy]]: ... You have to ask?
* {{Stripperific}}: Averted; the generic Dark Mage outfit (which Tharja happens to wear) is mostly made of SensualSpandex and has some cloth reserved for the crotch area. Henry's outfit (which is used in-game) is much more modest.
* ThirteenIsUnlucky: His birthday is on 13th of November, and he joins in Chapter 13.
* TokenEvilTeammate: More so in the English version than in the Japanese version, though.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: ''Very'' troubling. When he was a kid, he [[spoiler:made sure that the people who killed his wolf friend paid ''in blood'']].
* TheUnsmile: His "angry" portrait.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy
** WhiteHairBlackHeart: Henry might not be ''evil'', but he's not exactly ''good'', either.

-->''"Every sword must be tempered in its time."''

The upright and dignified princess of the Chon'sin dynasty. Her old-fashioned speech and manners set her apart from the Ylisseans. She loves her brother Yen'fay fiercely, but is currently his enemy for some reason. [[spoiler:It was for her sake that her brother joined Walhart's army. She found out about this after his death. She died in the BadFuture timeline.]] The most talented skin diver. Her birthday is January 11th.

->'''Class:''' Swordmaster
->'''Voiced by:''' SeikoYoshida (Japanese), Stacy Okada (English)
----
* AntiquatedLinguistics: She has a very formal and old-fashioned manner of speech that makes her sound almost like a character from Shakespeare at times, possibly as a result of AccentAdaptation during the game's dubbing process.
* BadassPrincess
* BattleCouple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BigBrotherWorship
* {{Chickification}}: Subverted hard. Excellus ''thinks'' that [[spoiler:revealing why her brother sacrificed himself]] will completely break her but, ultimately, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge it just pisses her off enough to come after him]] and, if you let her, [[LaserGuidedKarma chop his filthy head off]]. This subversion doesn't count as {{Xenafication}}, though; as she's a {{Badass}} to begin with.
* CoolSword
** KatanasAreJustBetter: She's depicted as wielding one in her artwork.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Can learn Astra.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Tiki. Their supports have them gradually evolve into HeterosexualLifePartners.
* HeroicBSOD: She had one before the game began, watching Chon'sin burn before Walhart's forces. She has another one [[spoiler:After Yen'fay's death]].
* HimeCut
* JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers. Her classes lets her mostly be a FragileSpeedster otherwise.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: In the BadFuture timeline, which is why Yen'fay from that timeline eventually time traveled to the past.]]
* LadyOfWar
* MasterSwordsman: Her initial class is a Swordmaster.
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Her reaction upon learning the truth about Yen'fay.]]
* OneWomanArmy: Since we never see anyone else from Chon'sin rebelling against Walhart, the implication is that she ''is it''. In-gameplay, she doesn't start as one but can be developed into one.

* {{Wutai}}: Her supports with the Avatar seem to indicate that Chon'sin is one. Specifically, she mentions the cherry blossoms in her hometown, and that their traditional diet consists mostly of fish and rice. Her C support with a female Avatar reveals that she wears {{sarashi}}, and her official art depicts her wielding a [[KatanasAreJustBetter Katana-like weapon.]] Oddly, though, her accent sounds more French than anything.

->''"Let's give these kettleheads a taste of our barbarian roots!"''

The West-Khan of the militant nation of Ferox, he respects those with valor. He often acts and speaks in a silly way, but he is deceptively quick-witted and definitely possesses the strength befitting of his position. He acts as a fatherly protector of Chrom and co. and is both the rival and friend of the East-Khan Flavia. Has the biggest reactions among his companions. His birthday is August 13th.

* AffectionateNickname: Flavia calls him "oaf", but it's not always affectionate.
* TheArcher
* AmbidextrousSprite: His portrait gets mirrored when switching sides during conversations. This results in his eyepatch flip-flopping eyes. Oddly enough, his confession scene also has his right eye patched, when his official artwork and game model have his left eye patched.

* LateCharacterSyndrome: Suffers this on the easier two difficulties. His stat bonuses on the later two make him useful, however.
* LightningBruiser: His modifers lean him towards being a physical one, though magic can still do quite the damage against him, and his starting stats and class makes him somewhat of a GlassCannon (albeit a not too fragile one).
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules / GameplayAndStorySegregation: Pulls a critical during his scripted fight with Walhart, despite having a 0% crit rate.

* LateCharacterSyndrome: Suffers this on the first two difficulties. Subverted on the latter two, since the bonuses given in those modes mostly make up for it.
* LifeDrain: Sol.
* ModestRoyalty: Both of Ferox's kings are explicitly making sure that they prefer to address both themselves and their guests in the way that they most comfortable of, but Flavia is the first of the two who Chrom meets and says it right on his face.

->'''Class:''' Hero
->'''Voiced by:''' DaisukeOno (Japanese), JamiesonPrice (English)
----
* AFatherToHisMen
* AnAxeToGrind: Not half bad with an Axe, and starts with a B rank.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Starts with Luna. Which he can't get through his reclass options.
* {{Badass}}: Considering he's got a massive army under his command and is nearly capped in all stats at base...
** As if that wasn't enough, just look at his skills: [[UpToEleven Swordbreaker, Axebreaker, Lancebreaker, Luna AND Sol!!]]
* BadassBaritone
* BattleCouple Possibly with Female Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BashBrothers: With the Male Avatar, if A support is reached.
* BloodKnight
* BoringButPractical: The strategy he uses against you in his Spotpass chapter. [[spoiler:He's in the middle of a massive enemy force (50 units) [[TheWarSequence that all come charging after you]] in one overwhelming ZergRush. Priam is of course the strongest enemy on the field, and given his dangerous skillset and the number of other enemies you're trying to deal with, it's easy for him to get the drop on you in a crowd.]]
* BraggingRightsReward: As the final [=SpotPass=] bonus unit, by time you can unlock him, he's... kinda worthless.
** This is subverted hard as of the second batch of DLC. With the Ultimate Trials and the ones focusing on the BadFuture, and the enemies being quite the step up from the main story (where they were already more competent and powerful than your usual Fire Emblem enemy unit), you are going to need him.
* CanonWelding: [[spoiler:He claims to be a descendant of Ike. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Yes, that Ike]].]]
* CoolSword: [[spoiler:Ragnell]]
** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: [[spoiler:Ragnell]] can be used as a ranged attack in this style.
* DeadpanSnarker: Infrequently, but his wit is no duller than [[spoiler: Ike's]].
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Exactly how you recruit him. Priam apparently amassed his former army by employing this method himself.
* ExcaliburInTheRust: His [[spoiler:Ragnell]] is visibly dull, full of cracks, and its very brittle hilt is crudely wrapped in bandage just so it won't fall apart. Not as awesome as when [[spoiler:Ike]] wields it, but still an awesome rank A sword nevertheless.
* EleventhHourRanger: He's as eleventh-hour as it gets - Priam is neither seen nor heard of any time during the story, and like the other spotpass paralogues his chapter only comes up right before the Endgame.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Well, his Sword Rank is better than his Axe rank, and he wields [[spoiler:Ragnell]], so...
* HeroicLineage: [[spoiler:Among other things, he loves to eat meat, just like Ike. Curiously, he has not inherited Aether, Ike's trademark skill, though he does have the 2 skills that make up Aether: Sol and Luna.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Before being recruited, he lead his own BadassCrew.
* LifeDrain: Sol.
* LightningBruiser: A physical variant. Starts with all stats (except magic and resistance) capped or close to capped depending on the difficulty. His modifiers lean him more towards a physical MightyGlacier though.
* MasterOfYourDomain: A major part of his training regime is harnessing and utilizing his LifeEnergy, or chi.

-->''"I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve!"''

Chrom's tomboyish little sister, the Princess of Ylisse. With nary an ounce of snobbery in her nature, she is among the most likeable and approachable of the Shepherds. The girl most likely to snort. Her birthday is March 6th.

* LethalChef: Her "rainbow" filling pie caused Kellam to faint.
* MagikarpPower: If she promotes to Sage she can become one of the most powerful magic users in the entire game. Sure, it doesn't look as unique as the [[MemeticMutation NUNSWITHAXES]] thing, but still she kicks some ass.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Her supports with Frederick pretty much revolve around butting into his routine and then getting him to loosen up a bit.

[[folder:Frederick]]
[[quoteright:228:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Frederick_6978.jpg]]

-->''"For victory."''

Chrom's lieutnant, an Ylissean knight who is sincere to a fault. He tends to demand tremendous effort for seemingly trivial things, and prefaces such exercises with a grin. The fondest of starting fires. His birthday is August 26.

->'''Class:''' Great Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' DaisukeOno (Japanese), KyleHebert (English)
----
* AffectionateNickname: Chrom and Lissa deem him "Frederick the Wary", a title he wears with pride.
** EmbarrassingNickname: The male Avatar calls him "Fredericson" and the female one "Freddy-Bear" in their supports, which he immediately dislikes.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna.
* {{Badass}}: One of the biggest in the game, and that's saying something:
** BadassInANiceSuit: Wears a suit underneath his armor. WordOfGod said his suit was based off [[BattleButler a butler's]]. It was lampshaded in his support with Maribelle.
** CulturedWarrior
** FourStarBadass
* BattleButler
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick: Unlike most Great Knights, Frederick specializes in Lances instead of Axes, though he can still use them and Swords as well.
* CharacterSelectForcing: He is essentially your only answer for doing the early stages of Lunatic and Lunatic+ mode. The early stages of Lunatic and Lunatic+ runs are affectionately called [[FanNickname Frederick Emblem]] with good reason.
* TheComicallySerious
* CrutchCharacter: Though of the Oifey archetype, meaning he remains viable well past the early stages of the game. The pair up system makes him very useful without stealing too much XP from your low level characters. Along with Anna he plays this role.
** MagikarpPower: Post-game: His slower Exp gain rate will have him behind early on, but he is one of the few characters who naturally gains access to the [[DamageReduction Pavise/Aegis]] combo (and he's one of the few guys with a Defense modifier who doesn't suffer a hit in Resistance), which along with his high Skill stat and Luna skill, makes him a good tank and a good damage dealer. His access to the Wyvern Rider class set also makes him a good choice for ferrying units around if he's in a mobile class, once he gets Deliverer (alternatively, you can make Frederick into a [[StoneWall Gen]][[MightyGlacier eral]] and make him into a somewhat more mobile foot tank when paired up).
* CustomUniform: Frederick, as a Great Knight, wears slightly different, lighter armor than the generic armor worn by others of the same class.
* DeadpanSnarker: At times. His short bio even states he's the "stern and sarcastic second-in-command".
* DoesNotLikeSpam: He hates wild game meat, especially bear meat.
* [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]]: If you have him paired up with Lissa.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Not with his enemies, nor his allies, as his trainees can vouch for.
* TheLancer
* LargeHam: While he's usually calm and composed, he tends to lose all restraint if he encounters something he ''really'' doesn't like.
* LoveHurts [=/=] UnwantedSpouse: If paired with [[spoiler:Cordelia]], he enters into the marriage knowing full well that her heart belongs to [[spoiler:Chrom]], but hoping that she'll eventually come to love him as he loves her.
* TheMentor: He prefers to guide others.
* MightyGlacier: A mobile one in his starting class. His modifiers also lean him towards this.
* NervesOfSteel: Lampshaded by Avatar regarding the jokes he gets from Chrom and Lissa. Although he claims to get it all out of his system when there aren't people looking.
* NotSoAboveItAll: His supports with Avatar reveal that he [[spoiler:can't stand bear meat himself, despite chiding Lissa for refusing to eat it]].
** Also, his supports with Henry reveals that [[spoiler:he doesn't actually like training as much as people thinks he does]].
* NumberTwo: He's Chrom's second in command.
* OfficerAndAGentleman
* OneManArmy: Just like other Jagen characters, he gets to be this at the beginning of the game. Although thanks to the game's new class-change system, he still can maintain the status if the player plays it right.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Pick a god and pray!"''\\
''"Farewell!"''\\
''"Your last breath approaches."''\\
"''Now!''"
* ProperlyParanoid: He's in charge of his country's prince and princess. He ''has'' to be.
* {{Pyromaniac}}: Downplayed, as he's only fond of starting ''camp''fires.
* RealMenWearPink: One of his solo barracks conversations allows you to catch him muttering to himself about ''knitting everyone matching gloves'' and wondering what color to make them.
* ScheduleFanatic
* TheSpartanWay: His way of training his troops. Although instead of being a DrillSergeantNasty, he always keeps smiling while being polite...which his trainees find even [[OhCrap MORE scary]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Just like other characters, he got a odd alternate spelling in the [=NoJ=] stuff, in this case, "Fredrick" (no second "e").
* StopHelpingMe: [[invoked]] Frederick's attempts to help someone sometimes backfire horribly. Of particular note is his C support with Chrom, where he tries to raise troop morale by sticking posters of Chrom '''naked''' in every tent.
** It gets worse. When told to tone down the helping, he has a small psychological breakdown, and ends up trying to dust the Avatar when they are trying to have a meeting with Chrom.
* TrainingFromHell: His training session for the army dubbed "[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Frederick's Fanatical Fitness]] Hour."
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Ylisse Royal Family.
* VeteranInstructor
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Wolves?]]: Due to nearly getting killed by a wolf when he was younger, Frederick is terrified of wolves or anything that looks like a wolf, like a [[KillerRabbit taguel]].
* {{Workaholic}}: Frederick takes his duties as a knight ''very'' seriously, to the point that some of his support conversations imply he doesn't even know how to relax.

* AllAmazonsWantHercules
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna if she goes Great Knight.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassNormal
** BadassPrincess: If she marries Chrom.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Basilio [[spoiler:and the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick: Focuses on lances more than [[CoolSword swords]], which is reversed for a Cain archetype.
** Can gain [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] as well if she promotes to Great Knight.
* BlueOniRedOni: The Red Oni to Stahl's Blue.
* {{Bokukko}}: Also the first ever female member of the [[RedOniBlueOni Red Knight/Green Knight duo]].
* BoyishShortHair
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: If paired with Chrom.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Red, which is present in her Paladin and Great Knight class models.
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against bows, tomes, and dragonstones if she goes Paladin.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer
* FieryRedhead
* FirstGirlWins: If paired with Chrom, due to ChildhoodFriendRomance.
* FragileSpeedster[=/=]JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers lean her towards a mix of this, especially if you go the Paladin route with her. And while she'd supposedly be a MightyGlacier as a Great Knight, her growths means she will still lean towards this.
* HotBlooded
* TheLadette: Claims to feel indifferent about it, but some of her supports do have her worry about her femininity.
* LethalChef: To the point where her husband learns to cook on his own ''just to not die''.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The masculine girl to, well, just about any guy is a feminine boy compared to her.
* MeaningfulName: Sully is an adjective and a synonym for "dirty", which could apply to her athletic pursuits and her cooking.
* MentorShip: If paired with Frederick.
* OneOfTheBoys: Lampshaded during some of her supports.
* OppositesAttract: In her supports with Libra.
* PreMortemOneLiner
--> ''"Where should I stab ya!?"''\\
''"I'll kill you twice!"''\\
''"So long, chump!"''\\
''"To hell with you!"''
* SharedFamilyQuirks: She acts very unwomanly-like because she grew up in a home where she had two rowdy older brothers. [[spoiler:It became even more serious for her to be like them when they were knights and were killed off by bandits away from home. Because of this, she wants to uphold their legacy as a strong knight in the Ylissel order.]]
* ShesGotLegs: Virion describes her as having shapely legs.
* SirSwearsALot: Good luck finding a scene she's in where she doesn't swear at least once. Her in-game description even describes her as being foul-mouthed.
* TalkToTheFist
* {{Tomboy}}
* TomboyishName: Her localized name, obviously. Specially considering that gamers usually think of another character from [[{{Uncharted}} another famous video game series]] when they hear that name.
** {{Irony}}: Her Japanese name. An English (French) word for an event where you're ''not'' likely to find her by her choice.
* ZettaiRyouiki: For all intents and purposes, Grade A.

-->''"Am I not a thing of beauty?"''

A secretive noble from some land or another. While many would brand him a buffoon or a braggart, his boasts are often founded. He is swift to propose to anything female. The most prolonged primper. His birthday is December 10th.

->'''Class:''' Archer
->'''Voiced by:''' Hiromichi Kogami (Japanese)
----
* TheAce: Practically all of his boasting turns out to be just ''him stating simple facts.''
* AgentPeacock
* TheArcher: Specifically, "The Archest of Archers." Also, can be promoted to Sniper, which can gain Bowfaire.
** BowAndSwordInAccord: If promoted to a [[HorseArcher Bow Knight]].
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* {{Bishonen}}
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* CasanovaWannabe
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Played with. He speaks with a marked French accent... but at the same time, he had perfectly valid reasons for retreating.
* ChivalrousPervert
* ClassyCravat: And proud of it too, as he becomes quite insulted when the Avatar calls it a bib in their B support.
* CulturedBadass: Tea and chess are his hobbies.
* DirtyCoward: How the majority of the world sees him after abandoning his province of Rosanne to Walhart.
* EngagingConversation: Virion's fond of pulling these.
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench
* FanNickname: Edgey, for his pronounced resemblance to [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]].
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Rosanne is apparently French.
* TheFightingNarcissist
* GenreSavvy: Why he actually doesn't ''lead'' armies. (See HiddenDepths)
* HiddenDepths: Though he combines this with CassandraTruth, constantly telling people how amazing he is, only to have them write him off as just a boaster. [[{{Badass}} Then he goes and proves it.]]
** He also is able to beat the Avatar at chess (or something similar to it). However, in his B support with the him/her, he points out that even though the Avatar can't beat him, Virion [[PyrrhicVictory wins with extreme cost]] and that if he did lead a real army like that, he would have a ZeroPercentApprovalRating.
** His fortune telling, as revealed in his supports with Miriel, is actually somewhat of a social science to him.
** During the S rank Scene with Sully it shows that despite all his Large Ham tendencies he is actually quite shy.
* LadykillerInLove: If paired.
* LargeHam: Especially when he's around women.
* PreMortemOneLiner:
--> ''"Die! With magnificence!"''\\
''"Adieu!"''\\
''"Shall I make you famous?"''\\
''"One for the bards!"''
* PyrrhicVictory: The reason why, despite being a skilled tactician, he never tries to take the Avatar's role. He gets too many of his men killed achieving any specific objective, as opposed to the Avatar's (and likely the player's) reluctance to sacrifice so much as a single unit.
* SelfDeprecation: During the S rank scene with Sully he can't actually believe that she would actually want to marry him.
* SerialRomeo
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Though, shockingly to everyone, his strategy is that of TheCombatPragmatist.
* WeakButSkilled: While his strength is nothing to sneeze at, what Virion brings to the table is his good speed and phenomenal skill, though his defenses do leave much to be desired.
* [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Teal Blue Haired Pretty Boy]]

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Stahl_Fire_Emblem_Awakening_365.jpg]]

-->''"Just look at me go!"''

A surprisingly normal Shepherd with a big heart and perpetual cowlick. He has a good head on his shoulders, but the rest of him often has trouble keeping up. The most eager to clean a plate. His birthday is June 16.

->'''Class:''' Cavalier
->'''Voiced by:''' Tarusuke Shingaki (Japanese), SamRiegel (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Very apparent in his romantic supports.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Can get Luna if he goes Great Knight.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As kindhearted as he is, he was a knight who was personally [[TrainingFromHell trained by Frederick]] alongside Sully, and can become a deadly unit gameplay-wise.
* BigEater: Upon picking up an item on the battlefield, he gives us this gem:
-->''What's this? [[IsItSomethingYouEat Is it edible?]] I haven't eaten in minutes.''
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Kellam (Big) and Donnel (Short). Stahl serves as the Thin member.
* BlueOniRedOni: The Blue to Sully's Red.
* ButtMonkey: Stahl tends to wind up in a lot of unfortunate situations, the thing is, it's usually [[ExtremeDoormat his own fault.]]
* CanNotTellALie: In the supports, Tharja curses him with a spell that, if he lies to her in any way, he will die a painful death. If he reaches a rank S, he uses the curse as proof that his feelings are true. [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue Tharja explaining him that she lifted the curse a long time ago]].]]
* CoolSword: Focuses on swords more than [[BladeOnAStick lances]]. Which is unusually reversed for an Abel archetype.
** Can gain [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] as well if he promotes to Great Knight.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Green, and like Sully, it is also present in his Paladin and Great Knight class models.
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against bows, tomes, and dragonstones if he goes Paladin.
* ExtremeDoormat: "No" does not seem to be a part of [[NiceGuy Stahl]]'s vocabulary.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''"Ungh... If only... I'd trained harder... Made myself... stronger..."''
* HairColorDissonance: His hair in official art is green, but in-game the more neutral tone makes it hard to tell whether it's is gray, green, brown, or any combination of the three.
* HiddenDepths: He has a talent for being able to read others easily and knowing what they want before they even ask. Not that he even takes advantage of it, instead it supplements his considerate and thoughtful nature.
* LetsGetDangerous: Listen to his battle quotes and it's hard to believe that he's so easygoing off the battlefield.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The feminine boy to Sully's masculine girl. He's not ''that'' feminine, really, but anyone would come off as feminine when compared to [[TheLadette her.]]
* MeaningfulName: ''Stahl'' means "steel" in German. ''Sol'' and ''Sort'' mean "sun" and "fate", the latter fitting well with Sully's original French-derived name.
* MessyHair
* MightyGlacier[=/=]JackOfAllStats: His modifiers lend him to be a mix of this, with bonuses to strength, defense and skill at the cost of luck and resistance. Promotion to the balanced Paladin Class with the Aegis skill exemplifies this, halving tome, arrow, and Dragonstone damage. His speed cap is actually decent, but the mediocre growth rate can hamper it.
* NiceGuy: To the point where various characters either tell him that he doesn't give himself enough credit or don't believe he has no ulterior motives for being so nice. The Avatar in their A Support has them assuring that they will always look out for him like he does for everyone else.
* OnlySaneMan: His supports with some of the more eccentric characters come off this way. His short bio even says that he's the most reasonable of the Shepherds.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Ready?"''\\
''"I love this part!"''\\
''"You are so dead!"''\\
''"Get ready!"''
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: According to his B support with Miriel, he is in the exact median for any and all performance data of everyone in the camp. She is amazed by just how incredibly unoutstanding he is. Although it's played with later on. [[spoiler: It's noted that he's improved significantly during Miriel's tests. Because everyone ''knows'' that Stahl is ridiculously average, they perceive him catching up to them as their own skills atrophying, and push themselves to improve in turn. He's basically the baseline for the entire army, and by improving himself he makes the whole thing better.]]
* TalkingToHimself: He has a support with Donnel, who shares his voice actor.
* [[ThroughHisStomach Through Her Stomach]]: He tries to win over Panne looking for dishes that she and the rest of the group can like so she joins the group during meals, instead of isolating herself. This is because Panne, being a Taguel, can't digest some of the human food, such as potatoes (Stahl discovers this last bit the hard way).
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Fried fig cakes, according to his support with the Avatar.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Against Stahl's low expectations in himself, Chrom says he's one of the Shepherds' best knights, and Sully tells him that he's the better rider out of the two of them.
** [[spoiler:In a similar case to Sumia, it's actually to his benefit that he thinks that way: he fights every battle like it would be his last and thus he does his best.]]

* BloodKnight
* BoisterousBruiser
** BruiserWithASoftCenter: Lissa thinks he has one for Chrom. [[spoiler: He later develops one for Lissa herself if they S Support.]]
* ChainedByFashion: Sports some chains hanging from his collar protector.[[note]]This is standard garb for the Fighter class.[[/note]]
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* DumbMuscle: Vaike isn't exactly the sharpest axe in the armory, but he can be surprisingly clever when he wants to be.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“GAR! Vaike the Mighty...falls at last...C-Chrom...take up the torch...”''
* ForgetfulJones: He forgets his own weapon in his first chapter.
** RunningGag: He ends up misplacing it again at the end of the game ''and'' during the Summer Scramble DLC.
* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: He knows that he's TheBigGuy ''at best'' in terms of his role in the plot but he still insists on challenging Chrom and acting like his [[TheLancer Lancer]] because he figures that the only way he can become the best warrior in the army is to keep challenging the one who currently holds that title.]]
* GoalInLife: [[spoiler: To become a great warrior and role model for the children of his hometown, hoping to improve the next generation and bridge the gap between the high and low classes.]]
* HotBlooded
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: It's 'vake,' not 'vike.'
* LargeHam
* LifeDrain: Sol, which he can learn if classed into Hero.
* PaperRam: The Charger type. Plenty of [[MeatShield health]], [[GlassCannon strength and decent speed]], but his poor defenses, especially resistance, will make those hit points vanish quickly if his enemy manages to survive his onslaught.
* ThePeepingTom: His supports with the Avatar chronicle his attempts to peep on the ladies bathing.
** BadLiar: He ''tries'' to lie his way out of it when the Avatar catches him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Looks like Teach just got tenure!"''\\
''"That's enough back talk!"''\\
''"Just you and me!"''\\
''"You want some?"''
* RedOniBlueOni: In his supports with Lon'qu. Take a guess who's who.
* TheRival: Deliberately acts this way towards Chrom because it's the only thing Vaike knows would make them equals.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He calls himself Ore-sama (The Great Me) in the Japanese version.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: "Enter the Vaike!"
* ThirdPersonPerson: Very frequently. Lissa thinks he has to, otherwise he would [[ForgetfulJones forget his own name]].
* VitriolicBestBuddies: His relationship with Chrom, from which Vaike will outright deny it's anything friendlier than rivalry even if it's proven otherwise.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Played straight with his portrait, but zig-zags depending on his promotion route.

* BrainySpecs
** AdjustingYourGlasses: By the sides.

* ElementalPowers - Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire: Starts with a Fire tome.
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe
* {{Expy}}: Her ForScience attitude, single-minded pursuit for her study, and her confusion when her love interests propose to her make the fans liken her to [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Lute]].
* ForScience: She considers dissecting [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Lilina]] to study the source of her magic, for one...
* GlassCannon: A magical one thanks to her modifiers. Great magic and decent skill and speed at the cost of defense and strength (the latter of which won't matter much to her).
* HotWitch
* InHarmsWay: In her supports with Lon'qu, she ''never'' tries to avoid the dangers that she's exposed to, if she even notices them at all. Partly because she knows that he will save her, but mostly because [[ForScience she wants to study the effects of his gynophobia]].
* TheLabRat

-->''"Look at all that you can accomplish if you try."''

An absent-minded, klutzy Shepherd with a shocking lack of self-worth. However, she exhibits one-of-a-kind talent when it comes to working with animals. The best at tripping over nothing. Her birthday is November 24th.

->'''Class:''' Pegasus Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Ayano Yamamoto (Japanese), DanielleJudovits (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* ApologeticAttacker: Occasionally when she Dual Strikes.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassAdorable
** BadassBookworm
** BadassPrincess: If she marries Chrom.
** HiddenBadass: Don't let her klutziness deceive you. Once she gets on her pegasus, this girl can pack quite a punch.
** SubmissiveBadass: Sweet, kind and unassuming. Unless she's fighting.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with Male Avatar, Chrom, Frederick, Gaius, and Henry.
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BeYourself: In her A rank support conversation, the Avatar said that she's fine the way she is and need not to emulate and behave like the heroines in the novels that she reads. This however leads her to believe that [[ComicallyMissingThePoint the next novel she reads should be about a heroine who's as clumsy and plain as she is.]] Although in her S rank conversation with a male Avatar shows that she thought about it and realized he was right.
* BladeOnAStick
** MagicKnight: A flying version if promoted to Dark Flier. Is a flying CombatMedic version instead if promoted to Falcon Knight.
* CuteBookworm: Her support with Avatar shows she LOVES to read novels. Although in her case it's more for escaping reality.
** CanonWelding: One of the books she reads is called "[[spoiler:The Genealogy of the Holy War]]". The English version hilariously changed this to the "[[spoiler:Ribald Tales of the Faith War]]" instead.
* CuteClumsyGirl: She gets better later in the game, though. Especially after she gets married.
* DiscOneNuke: In difficulties other than Lunatic and Lunatic+. Sumia's has a high speed that is enough to double attack anything short of bosses even without Pair Up during the time where every other unit might have problem at doubling enemies. This, combined with Flying capability means Sumia Paired Up with Frederick is likely your best unit for the first half of the game.
* DorkKnight
* {{Escapism}}: The reason why reading is one of her hobbies is because of she can pretend to be the protagonist of the novel instead of her usual clumsy self. Her S rank support with a male Avatar has her admit it and decide to stop in order to better herself.
* FragileSpeedster: Her modifiers lean her towards this, getting good skill and great speed, at the cost of defense and strength. As she is not hit in magic however, she can become a speedy [[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]] as a Dark Flier.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She has an uncanny ability for communicating with animals.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Tries to do this to Chrom, with an ArmorPiercingSlap, but accidentally ''punches'' him instead.
* [[GoodIsNotDumb Good Is Neither Dumb]] [[GoodIsNotSoft Nor Soft]]
* GirlyBruiser: Although her demure demeanor would suggest otherwise, Sumia has no problem kicking ass with the rest.
* GoshDangItToHeck: "Oh, HORSE PLOP!"
* GracefulInTheirElement: A disaster on land, but get her on her pegasus...
* HairDecorations: Beaded hairbands and wings for her ponytail.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: She finds out in her supports with Cynthia that she is a legendary pegasus knight in the future, known for violently destroying friend and foe alike. She resolves to tread carefully with any historians she happens to meet from then on.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even though she's arguably one of the best Pegasus Knights in the game, she still has a severe inferiority complex due to her blatant klutziness.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cordelia.
* InstantExpert: Although it's likely Sumia already possessed equestrian skills from the beginning, almost immediately after meeting and befriending her pegasus, she was somehow able to expertly ride it.
** She did mention Philia saying that pegasi are very weak to arrows and wind magic, so it's possible that she was previously interested in riding them and took some private lessons.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: Played with. Sumia is an avid practitioner of flower fortunes.
** LovesMeNot: She likes to use flower fortunes to predict whether she survives the next battle or not. Even if she gets a bad fortune, she just repeats it until she gets a good one. In some of her endings her fortunes actually become well-known as a bringers of good luck.
** HiddenDepths: In her A rank support with Cordelia she affirms that, in fact, she doesn't care whether her flower fortunes are correct or not. She just uses them to motivate herself to create the best possible future. Cordelia responds saying that's "[[ICantBelieveImSayingThis the most reasonable nonsense she's ever heard]]".
* TheMillstone: In her Supports with Gaius, she screws up his attempts at finding honey. Later, she generously helps him get honey... by giving him a beehive while the bees are still chasing her.
* OfficialCouple: With Chrom, unless the player gives him a higher support level with another girl [[spoiler:or keeps him from supporting with the girls until after chapter 11]].
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"For Ylisse!"''\\
''"Begone!"''\\
''"Here goes!"''\\
''"I'll end this now!"''
* RapunzelHair: Waist long wavy hair plus OjouRinglets to boot.
** LongHairIsFeminine
* RescueRomance: If Chrom is not paired with another girl, their cutscene in chapter 3 has shades of this. In an interesting twist, [[DistressedDude it's Sumia doing the rescuing!]]
* ShipTease: She gets a lot of this with Chrom, almost from her very first appearance. Heck, even ''her pegasus'' appears to be a ShipperOnDeck!
* SilkHidingSteel: Sweet and unassuming out of battle. Hyper-competent in battle.
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Name With A U]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: GirlyGirl to Cordellia's {{Tomboy}}
* ThroughHisStomach: She bakes Chrom a pie at Rank B with this intent.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early trailers indicate she was planned to have Cavalier as a reclass option.
* YouMeddlingKids: Parodied and ultimately subverted. In the Summer Scramble DLC, Miriel assumes that Sumia's klutzy attitude is nothing but a trap for Sumia to attract the attention of men. Sumia denies this until Miriel brings decisive evidence during her entire observation process. Then, Sumia [[spoiler:''laughs maniacally and admits that she's truly is acting like a klutz to get attention'' (saying a variation of this trope), and then she decides to silence Miriel '''forever''' so that nobody else finds out about her secret. ''[[SubvertedTrope However]]'', it turns out to have been just a big [[AllJustADream heatstroke-induced delusion]] on Miriel's part due to the warmth of the beach exhausting her.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Callum_8830.jpg]]

-->''"Hey, did you see how...Oh, no one's looking."''

A laconic, blank-faced Shepherd whose infamous lack of presence causes him to pass by others as if invisible. Despite his protests, he is actually quite proud of that. The tallest while seated. His birthday is June 24th.

->'''Class:''' Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Manabu Sakamaki (Japanese), Orion Acaba (English)
----
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Stahl (Thin) and Donnel (Short). Kellam serves as the Big member.
* BladeOnAStick
** AnAxeToGrind: Regardless of which class he promotes to.
** CoolSword: If promoted to Great Knight.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* ButtMonkey: His first appearance in an issue of Famitsu was spent demonstrating different ''death quotes'' between classic and casual mode. Poor guy. Heck, his face is obscured by Chrom's ''knee'' on the game's boxart!
* DamageReduction: Can gain this against swords, lances, axes, and beaststones if he goes General.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[FireEmblemJugdral Arden]], who also had difficulites getting attention in his game. Their situation is so similar the Lost Bloodlines DLC makes a RunningGag out of it!
--> '''Kellam''': Fight me! ...I mean, just look at us. It was meant to happen.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* TheGenericGuy: In fact, he's so generic to the point of his family barely knows he exist. He also capable of pulling some serious StealthHiBye even though he's the largest person in the army.
** He's so generic that [[spoiler:every one of his marriage endings is his wife's solo ending with the line "Her husband's name has been lost to history" tagged on at the end.]]
* FailedASpotCheck: Seriously, he wears that much armor and ''still'' barely gets noticed! In fact, it's so bad that despite being the tallest person at the table according to his bio, for ages the rest of the army was baffled by an extra cup at the table, and assumed the place was haunted!
** It becomes a RunningGag whenever he appears. In his supports with Tharja for example, she somehow misses him ''[[BangingPotsAndPans clanging two pans together to get her attention]]!''
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“I-I'm done for... I wonder if...anyone will notice...I'm gone...”''
* GenreSavvy: Kellam is fully aware of how unnoticeable he is and apparently knows how to "disappear" at will.
** Becomes something of FridgeBrilliance when one notices that one of two other classes he can change into with a Second Seal is the Thief class.
* GentleGiant: He's the tallest of the shepherds sitting up, and is an incredibly NiceGuy.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: For a certain value of "cool", but certainly "impossible".
** Though it's actually more practical than it looks (for a certain value of 'practical' anyway). The large part above the torso is actually a detachable ShouldersOfDoom.
* MightyGlacier[=/=]StoneWall: His class, and his modifiers. He gets decent strength, and has a great defense modifier, but his speed and luck modifiers are poor.
* MysteriousProtector: But not by choice!
* NiceGuy: Poor Kellam doesn't even have it in him to be angry for being ignored all the time. He's just happy whenever someone actually notices him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"It's my big moment!"''\\
''"Don't miss this!"''\\
''"They've gotta notice this!"''\\
''"Come on, look at me!"''
* RunningGag: Read the rest of his tropes and take a wild guess...
* TheQuietOne: Literally. One of the reasons most people don't realize his presence is that he doesn't say anything nor makes any sounds (despite wearing that bulky armor everywhere!) when entering a room.
** People probably mistake him as a mannequin in a decorative display armor back at the Shepherd's HQ.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Caeda and Lilina notice him in a few DLC chapters. In addition, if he has a child s/he will see him with no troubles.
* TwentyFourHourArmor: His supports with Maribelle show that he wears his armor most of the time because it's his most the comfortable clothing for him.
* WalkingTheEarth: [[spoiler:His solo ending. After the events of the game, he leaves Ylisse to go on a long journey. Of course, its not until years later before anyone even notices his absence.]]
* WhoIsThisGuyAgain: Holee...

[[folder:Donnel/"Donny" (Denis)]]

-->''"I can fight too!"''

A villager from a remote corner of Ylisse who came to fight with little more than farming experience. However, he is eager to learn and shows a great deal of promise. The one with the curliest hair. His birthday is June 4th.

->'''Class:''' Villager
->'''Voiced by:''' MitsuhiroIchiki (Japanese), SamRiegel (English)
----
* BadassAdorable
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BigThinShortTrio: Forms one with Stahl (Thin) and Kellam (Big). Donnel serves as the Short member.
* BladeOnAStick: Weirdly, his class change options are [[CoolSword Mercenary]] and [[AnAxeToGrind Fighter]], making his promoted options [[CoolSword He]][[AnAxeToGrind ro]], [[AnAxeToGrind Warr]][[TheArcher ior]], and [[BowAndSwordInAccord Bow]] [[HorseArcher Knight]]. None of those classes have lances as an option, meaning he has to discard his lance rank altogether.
* BlueWithShock: One of his character portraits.
* BucketHelmet: He wears it throughout the game, even after changing classes. Which can be odd when he's wearing full plate armor and still has a bucket as helmet.
* ComingOfAgeStory: The plot of his sidequest is basically this.
* CountryMouse
* DareToBeBadass: Chrom gives him one.
* DisappearedDad: His father died when he was a kid.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Unnngh...I-I did m'best...Made the village proud...”''
* FarmBoy
* GeniusDitz: In some supports, such as the one with Maribelle, Donnel reveals that he is in fact much smarter than he seems to be. He also has the [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Skill "Aptitude"]] which increases his growths across the board.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has an X scar on his left cheek.
** XMarksTheHero
* HerosJourney: Donny rises to the [[CallToAdventure call]], fights the good fight, and in the end, [[spoiler: he returns to the peaceful farming village he knows so well.]]
* InSeriesNickname: "Donny".
* JokeItem: Seen fighting with a Wooden Stick. Really. (Looks more like a log.)
* LightningBruiser: He will '''always''' become one of these.
** JackOfAllStats[=/=]MasterOfNone: His Cap modifiers keep him from being too special once the children come into play and your other units begin to catch up to him, his only outstanding stat being luck, with only decent strength and defense and being poor in everything else. Whether he is one or the other depends on you though.
* MagikarpPower: He has pitiful starting stats but comes with a skill, Aptitude, that increases ALL of his growth rates by 20% with no penalty. He's extremely difficult to train as a Villager, but can become ''incredibly'' powerful. And unlike many other cases in the series, this is actually built into his character too; the sidequest you get him in focuses on him overcoming his fears of being useless, and ''getting him to level up at least once'' is how you recruit him.
** CrutchCharacter: Post-game, if you trained him up, he will act like this thanks to his mostly middling modifiers and not having anything to contribute but fighting, while everyone else is beginning to catch up to him stat-wise and skill-wise, or possess classes that are able to contribute with other things along with fighting.
* MeaningfulName: "Donnel" is a Gaelic name for "brave" and "dark haired one".
* MessyHair: [[spoiler:This is the main reason why he wears a pot all the time. His hair underneath that resembles an ox in his words, and he was never able to tame it.]]
* NiceGuy
* OlderThanTheyLook: In a support, Donny claims to be the same age as Lissa -- who is in her mid teens.
* PhotographicMemory: He memorizes a DoorStopper about Ylissean law that Maribelle lends to him.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Yeeeeee-haw!"''\\
''"Get ready!"''\\
''"How 'bout this?"''\\
''"C'mon, Donny!"''
* ShoutOut: He'll shout "Let's [[LarryTheCableGuy get 'er done]]!" in battle sometimes.
* SouthernFriedGenius: Becomes one after Miriel teaches him in their support conversations.
* SuperIntelligence: [[HiddenDepths Surprisingly enough]], he's shown to have an exceptional memory.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: His reaction when Kellam guesses that his pot helmet is a lucky charm. [[spoiler:It isn't. See MessyHair above.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Wild game meat, particularly boar meat.
* TragicKeepsake: A small rock from his late father.
* UptownGirl: His relationship with his wife if paired with Lissa or Maribelle.

-->''"...Hmph."''

A swordsman raised in Regna Ferox, where Khan Basilio has vouched for his skill. While cool and curt around most people, the very sight of a woman turns him beetroot red. The deftest potato peeler. His birthday is October 10th.

->'''Class:''' Myrmidon
->'''Voiced by:''' TakehitoKoyasu (Japanese), TravisWillingham (English)
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Easily seen when he's on an event tile with his family or a female unit, where he loses most of his usual composure. [[spoiler:His confession scene is this incarnate.]]
* AllergicToLove: Though only at first.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Subverted; certain characters will call it gynophobia. [[spoiler:However, the circumstances behind why he has it and physical symptoms he suffers make it sound very much like PTSD.]]
* AntiHero: Type II.
* {{Badass}}: One of the game's biggest.
** BadassLongcoat
** BadassBaritone: In the English dub, his voice is ridiculously deep like Basilio.
* BashBrothers: Potentially, with Vaike, Gregor, and Male Avatar.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** [[spoiler:SecondLove: Since his childhood sweetheart was killed, his potential wife is this.]]
* BodyguardCrush: If paired with Lissa.
* ButtMonkey: His early supports with female units can definitely come off like this.
* [[spoiler:CartwrightCurse:]] [[spoiler:Believes he has this. See below.]]
* CannotTalkToWomen: Despite this, he can be paired with any first generation female, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]]. See [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Women?]] below.
** DoesNotLikeWomen: Due to his [[TheStoic stoic]] demeanor, this is how he comes across to the rest of the characters at first.
* CoolSword: Can become an [[BowAndSwordInAccord archer]] if promoted to Assassin.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:He spent his childhood as an orphan growing up in the Chon'sin slums. The reason for his fear of women is that his first friend was a young girl his age, Ke'ri. She would be killed by bandits, and he developed gynophobia because of his inability to do anything to help her, always believing that any woman who gets close to him is bound to be killed.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Can learn Astra through Swordmaster.
* DubNameChange: He's called "Lon'zu" in the Non-English European versions.
* [[spoiler:FailureToSaveMurder: He was on the receiving end of this by Ke'ri's parents after she was killed. It's revealed later that that they forgave him when they learn about how much he meant to their daughter.]]
* FamousLastWords
--> "''So... This is how it ends...''"
* FantasticallyIndifferent: When he gains a "bad" level (0-1 stats):
-->''"... Hmph."''
* [[spoiler:TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: The real reason for his fear of women.]]
* FragileSpeedster[=/=][[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]]: His modifiers lean him towards this. Specifically, he gets great skill (tied with [[spoiler:Gangrel]] for best default non-Avatar modifier in the game in fact) and speed, at the cost of defense and resistance.
* FriendToBugs: In the ''Summer of Bonds'' DLC, he reveals to Gaius that he liked to catch them as a kid and finds them fascinating.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Inverted, actually. Despite his gynophobia, he functions just fine in Pair Up and Supports with women because they're life-or-death situations.[[spoiler:It becomes GameplayAndStoryIntegration when you learn he would very much prefer if anyone, male or female didn't die when he is able to do something about it.]]
* HeirToTheDojo: Said to be groomed as Basilio's heir for Western Ferox, but he doesn't seem to really believe in his own ability after losing his position as Western Ferox's representative to Masked Marth.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Despite his irritable and stern nature, he doesn't have a hateful bone in his body and refuses to hold grudges. [[spoiler: Concerning his family when he marries, he's a surprisingly attentive father and husband.]]
* IAintGotTimeToBleed: In his A Support with Lissa, Lon'qu gets hit with an arrow and slaughters several would-be assassins without batting an eyelash.
* MeaningfulName: ''Lon'' is Gaelic for blackbird, a symbol of unluckiness. [[spoiler:His past makes it tragically fitting.]] The second part comes from the Chinese ''qù'', which can be translated as quiet, alone, distance, or departure.
* MistakenForGay: In the Harvest Scramble, Vaike assumes he is due to his rampant gynophobia and word quickly spreads around the army. Lon'qu is not amused.
* [[spoiler:MyGreatestFailure: His inability to save his childhood friend when she died protecting him from bandits. Her parents (initially) blamed him for her death, so he left Chon'sin. Many supports bring up how he's haunted by nightmares of that.]]
* NoodleIncident: If his potential children ask about his past, he tells them he's done unsavory things to earn his meals, before promising he'll be a better father to look up to.
* OneHitKill: Can learn Lethality if he goes Assassin.
* ParentalAbandonment: Unsurprising, but his supports with Nowi playing house definitely hint at this, since he has no idea what a family is like.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"No hard feelings."''\\
''"I'll make this quick."''\\
"''How well will you die?''"\\
''"Be silent!"''
* TheQuietOne
* RedOniBlueOni: Forms a classic pair with Vaike as the red to Lon'qu's blue.
* TheStoic[=/=]NotSoStoic: Apart from his gynophobia, this guy seems to be cold as ice most of the time.
* SuddenlyShouting: It seems to be a reflex of his anxiety when a woman tries to approach him.
* TrainingFromHell: Having him as a sparring partner is supposedly brutal, according to his support with the male Avatar and event tiles with his children. Sully and the female Avatar are rather offended when he can't spar with them at the level he normally would be due to his gynophobia.
* TwiceShy: With Olivia.
* WhenHeSmiles: His support with the Female Avatar has her making it a goal to try and make him laugh.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Notably with the Female Avatar, as their clashing of personalities has some effect on distracting him from his phobia. [[spoiler:S-Rank proves it to be [[LoveEpiphany more effective than either of them anticipated]].]]
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Women?]]: He suffers gynophobia due to a traumatic event in his youth. Although eventually he makes an exception with the female character he marries. An exception is also made for his daughter if the resulting child is female.
** {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:He was set to be Basilio's champion, until the masked Marth came along [[CurbStompBattle and beat him effortlessly.]] Basilio even wonders why Lon'qu lost so easily despite easily beating every other opponent. After a [[SamusIsAGirl certain reveal]], the reason should be obvious.]]

* BlackMage
** RedMage: If promoted to Sage.

* ElementalPowers: Able to wield magic tomes.

* JustAKid: Hates getting this kind of treatment.
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if he promotes to Dark Knight.
* TheNapoleon: He's a nice kid, but his desire to be treated as an equal causes him to be quite stubborn at times, and he's self-conscious about his height.
* NiceHat: That's much too big for him.
* NoRespectGuy: As studious and skilled as he is, young Ricken is always looking up to others and ''never'' the other way around.
** In the ''Future Past'' DLC, most of the children, if he fathered any of them, will comment on how shrimpy he is if he talks to them.
* PrecociousCrush: He admitted he's had a crush on Maribelle since the first time they met in their S support.
** LikesOlderWomen: Any pairing involving him will inevitably lead to this.

* RescueRomance: If paired with Maribelle. Their S Support reveals he always liked her right from the start.
* RobeAndWizardHat
* SquishyWizard: His modifiers. Notably, he gets the best Magic modifier out of all the male units (that aren't Avatar). Downplayed though in that there are magical units that are squishier than him, and his growths allow him to be a magical JackOfAllStats.
* TakingTheHeat: In their support, Ricken covers for Nowi, which, coincidentally, was for setting a tent on fire.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Some of his S Supports. No necessarily because the girls are terribly tall, it's just that Ricken is so young.
* TokenMiniMoe: He's the youngest member of the Shepherds.
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Averted, his C Support with Lissa reveals he hates the concept of killing (to the point he believes he's been holding back) and is only killing to avoid dying himself.

->'''Class:''' Troubadour
->'''Voiced by:''' Hiromi Igarashi (Japanese), MelissaFahn (English)
----
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Surprisingly for a socially elite character such as her -- Growing up, Maribelle was disliked by her peers due to her sharp tongue and critical manner. Lissa was the first person to actually become friends with her.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: A rare non-sexual example -- in the Golden Gaffe DLC Map, most of the playable characters have a line of dialogue spoken to the Risen chastising them for stealing their gold. Maribelle, on the other hand, complains that the Risen ''didn't'' rob her. "Do I look poor to you?!"
* ASpotOfTea

* ChildhoodFriendRomance: If paired with Chrom.
* ClingyJealousGirl: In "Harvest Scramble", after Lissa tries to talk to Maribelle into making more friends, Maribelle calls Lissa "MINE and mine alone" and that she is sick and tired of sharing her. Though she is later a bit ashamed of saying that out loud.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In her C support with her son Brady, when he asks "Who did you piss off?", she is horrified... because it would be more correct to say "[[InsistentTerminology WHOM]] did you piss off?"
* DistressBall: See TheScapegoat.
* {{Expy}}: Seems to be one to [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Clarine]].
* FriendlessBackground: Before meeting Lissa. The main reason why she's so overprotective of her and her brother.
* FreudianSlip: In her [[RelationshipUpgrade S Rank]] with Chrom she wonders if he'll ever find a place for her in his heart. While he's right there.
-->''"...Wait. DidIJustSayThatOutLoud"''
* HairDecorations: Two white bows for her pigtails.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She can be cold to be people, but she tends to warm up in good time.
* LuminescentBlush: While every character has it at one point or another, special mention goes to her [[RelationshipUpgrade S Rank]] support with Chrom, where after the above mentioned FreudianSlip, her ''[[UpToEleven entire face]]'' turns completely red.

* SlobsVersusSnobs: Downplayed, but has this dynamic with Vaike.
* SpoiledSweet: Because she comes off as [[SugarAndIcePersonality cold and snobbish]], many think that she's a RichBitch. Those who get past her frosty facade will have her eternal loyalty.
* SquishyWizard: Her modifiers. She has a great spread of positive modifiers in Magic, Skill, Luck and Resistance, but she has the lowest possible modifiers for Strength and Defense.

-->''"My strength is that of all Taguel!"''

A nationless shapeshifter and the last of the taguel. While cool and sensible by natire, she shows little interest in finding a partner and remedying the fate of her race. The fastest at wolfing down a meal. Her birthday is November 8.

->'''Class:''' Taguel
->'''Voiced by:''' YukiMasuda (Japanese), Jessica Gee (English)
----
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** InterspeciesRomance: Will always be the case, [[LastOfHisKind for obvious reasons.]]
* BizarreTasteInFood: She's one of the few characters who actually ''likes'' [[LethalChef the Avatar's cooking.]] She even loved the batch of [[TrademarkFavouriteFood carrot stew]] the others said ''tasted like dishwater.''
* BraidsOfAction: A unique variant with her hair entwined around her Taguel ears.
* ContinuityNod: Her supports imply she belongs to a subspecies of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Laguz]]. (Except her offspring are full Taguel rather than [[HalfHumanHybrid Branded]]). Her support with Ricken particularly underline this by revealing that there were "Taguel" who could transform into lions, amongst other things - implying that the Taguel as a whole may be what the Laguz evolved into.
** As a ShoutOut, one of the Taguel attack animations is identical to one of the Wolf Laguz attack animations.
* DoesNotLikeShoes
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Her supports with Stahl reveal that Taguel can't eat potatoes.
** TruthInTelevision: Potatoes are actually harmful to rabbits.
* DubNameChange: She's called "Palne" in the Non-English European versions.
* [[HairDecorations Ear Decorations]]: The metal bands around her ears, which [[MorphicResonance remain when she transforms]].
* FacialMarkings
* FantasticSlur: "Man-spawn." She also mentions a few humans used to call her race in the past when she first joins, but they don't come up often in-game.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When transformed.
* HeyYou
* IceQueen [=/=] {{Jerkass}}: She starts off very haughty and abrasive and is quite dismissive of anyone who isn't the Avatar in her Supports. [[FreudianExcuse True, she has her reasons]], but she's quite the jerk to people who just want to know her better.
** DefrostingIceQueen [=/=] JerkWithAHeartOfGold: What she ultimately develops into.
* IsItSomethingYouEat: Her S Support with the Avatar has him assume that she doesn't know what a human marriage is. However, her S supports with Gaius, Kellam, and Lon'qu reveal otherwise.
* KillerRabbit: Quite literally so.
* LastOfHerKind: Though she isn't too concerned with the survival of her species.
* LightningBruiser: Her modifiers lean her towards this, her only true flaws being that she lacks magic and resistance. However, because of the Taguel's lowish caps and the stat bonuses of the Beaststones, she leans more towards being a FragileSpeedster or a GlassCannon.
* LittleBitBeastly
** UnusualEars
* MeaningfulName[=/=]StealthPun: ''Literature/TheVelveteenRabbit''.
** BilingualBonus: Panné is a type of crushed velvet.
* MsFanservice: She is already getting declared this, though she's also the LastOfTheirKind and so has a bit more depth than that.
** InnocentFanserviceGirl: Shows up in supports occasionally, due to ValuesDissonance between human and Taugel culture. For example, in a support with Stahl she sees nothing wrong with cleaning fruit off his face by licking it off.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: She wears purple-pink armor in contrast to Yarne who wears dark blue armor.
* PowerEchoes: Like all transforming characters, she gets a reverb in her voice when in beast form.
* PreMortemOneLiner

''"The Taguel do not play!"''\\
''"I smell your fear."''\\
''"For the warren!"''
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: She talks to Cordelia's pegasus off screen.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Because she's "different" from the rest and because humans are the one who drove her kind to extinction. Even though she says that she doesn't hold grudge, she still has a hard time trusting humans.
** RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: Emmeryn manages this.
* [[SuperSenses Super Hearing]]: She can hear people's ''heartbeats''.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Carrot stew, according to her supports with Avatar.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter
** MagicPants: Her clothes seem to adapt to whichever form she is currently in.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade B, more apparent because she DoesNotLikeShoes.

A cool and capable Ylissean thief who will take any job for the right price. He is absolutely obsessed with sweets and hides 50 varieties of "emergency snacks" in his cloak. The most frequent nosebleeder. His birthday is January 2nd.

->'''Class:''' Thief
->'''Voiced by:''' Shinobu Matsumoto (Japanese), GideonEmery (English)
----
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:His supports with Maribelle reveal that he once tried to ruin her father's good name, and tried sneaking into the royal treasury to frame him and have her father put on trial, though he later reveals that he was set up to do it and that if he didn't, his employer would potentially make an attempt on Maribelle's life.]]
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Discussed with Libra. Gaius acknowledges that morally questionable deeds must be committed for the army to succeed and sees himself as the only one suited for the job.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BigEater: When it comes to sweets. He ''never'' stops snacking, even while in the middle of battle.
* CoolSword
** Can gain [[BowAndSwordInAccord a bow]] if promoted to [[ProfessionalKiller Assassin]], or [[CombatMedic staves]] if promoted to [[MagicKnight Trickster]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Probably the snarkiest member of the army.
* DeclarationOfProtection: In his supports towards Maribelle. Can potentially develop into BodyguardCrush if they reach S rank.
* [[DistractedByTheShiny Distracted By the Sweetness]]: He's normally TheStoic... until candy is involved.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
-->'''Chrom:''' You'll risk your life for us if I give you...a bag of candy?
-->'''Gaius:''' I said "sweeten the deal", didn't I? Don't get me wrong, I'll take the gold too. Later. Unless you've got more of these. ...Have you got more of these?!
* EveryManHasHisPrice: See above.
** Gaius ''tries'' to invoke this on the Avatar, see WontTakeYesForAnAnswer.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Nngh... Damn and double damn... I hate when things...go sour...”''
-->''“Didn't see...that coming...No more...sweets for me...”''
* {{Fanservice}}: Gets a swimsuit scene in the "Summer of Bonds" DLC chapter.
** InformedFlaw: For all his protests to the female Avatar that he's usually in much better shape, his swimsuit scene makes it pretty clear that he doesn't have anything to be embarrassed of.
* HairDecorations: His black headband tied to the side.
* HeelFaceTurn: Over a bag of candy, no less!
** NotWhatISignedOnFor: He had no idea Validar's men were planning to ''kill'' Emmeryn, he just joined for the looting. Once he finds out he immediately states that while he'd rob the exalt blind, he'd ''never'' harm her.
* HiddenDepths: The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} reveals that the profit from all of the items that he habitually scrounges up to sell does ''not'', in fact, go to funding his candy addiction. He uses the money to anonymously ''fund the army''. [[spoiler:He's also very irritated with Frederick for revealing this to the Avatar]].
* HonorAmongThieves: Make no mistake, Gaius is a hardened crook through and through. He just also happens to be very noble.
* HouseHusband: General housework, embroidery, jewelry, making his own sweets.
* HurricaneOfPuns: All of his Japanese battle quotes use the word, "amai." This word means both sweet (as in taste, since he loves candy) and also describes someone who isn't trying very hard (so, it's used a lot in taunts which mean something like "Is that all?" or "You should've tried harder!") His English ones are in a similar mold, with lines like "What a cupcake!" and "Like candy from a babe!" Some are [[StealthPun much more subtle]], like when he levels up, he sometimes says "Sweet".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LoveableRogue
* LuckySeven: Can gain this as a skill if he goes Trickster. It gives him +20 Hit and Avoid for 7 turns at the start, but he has to rely on his own skill afterwards.
* TheNicknamer: He likes to give the other characters friendly nicknames, like "Bubbles" for Avatar, or "[[CuteClumsyGirl Stumbles]]" for Sumia, or "Twinkles" for Maribelle.
** He gets his own [[InSeriesNickname nickname]] from Sully, "Chuckles".
* OneHitKill: Can learn Lethality if he goes Assassin.
* PaperRam: Makes for an ideal Dodger. As a Thief, Gaius boasts fantastic [[FragileSpeedster speed and skill]] and surprisingly [[GlassCannon impressive strength]], too. His luck and defenses, however, are severely lacking.
* ThePigPen: His supports with Cordelia reveal he's quite a slob.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"What a cupcake!"''\\
''"So long, sucker!"''\\

* StreetSmart
* SweetTooth: Good lord, does he have one. It's a wonder he isn't diabetic.
* TattooedCrook: He hides a tattoo on his forearm that marks him a convicted criminal.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sweets of all kinds, of course. But he really seems to have a thing for honey.
* WontTakeYesForAnAnswer: In his supports with the Avatars, he insists on trying to bribe them so they won't tell anyone about his tattoo, even after repeated assurances that they won't tell anyone.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Bugs:]] He's terrified of insects, who often are attracted to his sweets.

-->''"I am yours to mold as you see fit."''

An Ylissean pegasus knight who has been friends with Sumia since childhood. Her beauty, skill, and record are surpassed by few, but she cannot seem to win Chrom's heart. The deepest, most frequent sigher. Her birthday is July 7th.

->'''Class:''' Pegasus Knight
->'''Voiced by:''' Eimi Okada (Japanese), JulieAnnTaylor (English)
----
* TheAce
** ThePerfectionist: Deconstructed, really. Her perfectionist nature make her quite disliked by the rest of the Ylisse Pegasus Knights for seemingly looking down upon the others, even though she only becomes that way because she seeks her seniors' approval. [[spoiler:And then her A support with Avatar reveals that despite their teasing, the other pegasus knights really did admire her, to the point that they were willing to give up their lives for her. Being called a genius reminds her of their sacrifice, which is why she dislikes being called one.]]
** BrokenAce
* ACupAngst: Roster Rescue and Summer Scramble.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: This is actually enforced as it is totally impossible to pair her up with her crush, Chrom leading to...
** LoveTriangle: She'll end up in one of these along with Chrom and whoever he marries by default. Potentially upgraded to love square if she marries and continues to pine for Chrom while her own husband pines for her, especially if she marries Frederick. Depending on the husband though, it's possible for her to get over Chrom altogether. See SecondLove just below.
** SecondLove: By default, any of her potential husbands is this. This is especially present in her supports with Avatar (in which she vows to love him above all others, without even a mention of Chrom), Stahl (in which she tells him with complete honesty that he's replaced Chrom in her heart), Kellam (in which she happily accepts his proposal, also without a mention of Chrom) and Gregor (in which ''she'' proposes to ''him''!) Naturally, this [[StatusQuoIsGod won't prevent]] her solo event tiles, levelups, Scramble Conversations etc. from [[GameplayAndStorySegregation having her fawning over Chrom, neither does it affect her support conversations where her love for him is also brought up frequently.]]
* BadassAngster: She's got the most reasons to be angsty out of everyone in the army, though she remains strong, and can kick ass with the rest of them.
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except her first crush Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BladeOnAStick
* DontYouDarePityMe: She hates being pitied, as it makes her feel that she has lost.
* {{Fanservice}}: Gets a swimsuit scene in the "Summer of Bonds" DLC chapter.
* FieryRedhead
* HairDecorations: A pair of wing-shaped clips.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sumia.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even more so than Sumia.
* HumbleHero: Despite being talented in many different fields (e.g. fighting, music, smithing, etc.), Cordelia doesn't consider herself exceptional, and insists that people do not call her a genius. [[spoiler:Her A support with Avatar provides one reason why she's like this.]]
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Of Chrom.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Her conversations with Chrom in the Summer Scramble DLC has her go into high gear, letting her fantasies take the better of her.
* LightningBruiser: Her modifiers lean her towards a physical GlassCannon variant as she gets decent strength and good skill and speed, without suffering anything in defense. Her magic and resistance stats are somewhat poor in exchange though. However, [[FragileSpeedster both Falcon Knight and Dark Flier has a low strength and defense cap]].
* LoveHurts
* LuckySeven: She was born on July 7th. July is the seventh month of the year and [[CaptainObvious the 7th is the 7th day of the month.]]
* MagicKnight: A flying version if promoted to Dark Flier. Is a flying CombatMedic version instead if promoted to Falcon Knight.
* MeaningfulRename: Cordelia is a feminine given name, popularly associated with Latin cor (genitive cordis) "heart". It was born by the tragic heroine of Shakespeare's Theatre/KingLear. In the play, the character is unwilling to profess her love to her father, stating "Love, and be silent", reflected in Cordelia's [[AllLoveIsUnrequited situation]] with Chrom.
** Even her original name, Tiamo, is meaningful, since it is the Italian phrase "Ti amo", for "I love you" without the space, which also reflects her situation with Chrom.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Quite enough!"''\\
''"Now you've angered me!"''\\
''"Out of my sight!"''\\
''"That's quite enough!"''
* RapunzelHair: Hands down the longest in the entire game. ''It's THIGHS long!''
* SurvivorGuilt: Lost her whole squad to a Plegian ambush, and hates herself for fleeing while they fought and died. This is despite the fact they told her to run so she could warn the Shepherds about an ambush.
* TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: She is initially hurting over Chrom, and initially believes she will never love again.
** It's also revealed that [[spoiler:in the BadFuture timeline, her daughter [[CallingTheOldManOut called her out on it]]... [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye and that was the last conversation they had before Cordelia died.]]]]
* ThrowTheDogABone: She ''finally'' gets ''an actual conversation'' with Chrom in the Summer of Bonds DLC.
** Assuming, of course, Cordelia has yet to marry anyone.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Sumia's girly girl.
* TraumaCongaLine: LoveHurts ''AND'' SurvivorGuilt? And that's only her introduction...
* UnrequitedTragicMaiden: She's in love with Chrom and is hurting badly over it, but will never say anything because she's sure it'll never work out. The game mechanics don't even let you pair them!
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A

A manakete from no land in particular. While she looks young and likes to play outside with children, she is actually over 1,000 years and counting. The biggest oversleeper. Her birthday is September 21st.

->'''Class:''' Manakete
->'''Voiced by:''' Kumi Tanaka (Japanese), Hunter Mackenzie Austin (English)
----
* BadassAdorable: She can ''turn into a dragon'' and lay waste to the enemy. Not only that, but when she joins your party, she comes equipped with a dragonstone, meaning it's the first attack you see her execute. One hell of an introduction.
* BareYourMidriff
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
** InterspeciesRomance: All her pairings are this by default due to the [[LastOfHisKind rarity of manaketes.]]
* ChainmailBikini: Seems to be composed of scales, and likely her own.
* CloudCuckooLander: Has more than a few elements of this, to the point where Nah wonders what her dad saw in her.
-->'''Nah''': What do you like about her, anyway? You're so serious and responsible, and she runs around like a headless chicken!
* GenkiGirl
* GiantWaistRibbon: One on both sides.
* HiddenDepths: When she bothers to show her mature side.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: With the aid of a [[TransformationTrinket Dragonstone]] she can take on her Dragon form, allowing her to beat the crap out of most enemies with ease.
* [[LastOfHisKind One of the Last of Her Kind]]: While not as extreme the Taguel, Manaketes are really rare in Ylisse. Before Nowi's appearance, Tiki was even thought to be the last Divine Dragon able to assume Dragon form.
* LightIsGood: Appears to be of the Divine Dragon Tribe.
* MadeASlave: Prior to being recruited, Nowi was sold into slavery, where she was forced to transform and do other "tricks".
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: In her supports with Libra.
* MightyGlacier[=/=]StoneWall: Her modifiers are very much geared towards this, more than even Frederick and Kellam.
* MundaneUtility: In Nowi's A support with the Avatar, Nowi uses her Dragonstone to attack a snake. By ''throwing it at the snake''. She didn't know it was her Dragonstone until she'd already thrown it, but still. Needless to say, the Avatar and her then have to find it.
* NeverGrewUp: Physically, and maybe even mentally too, except...
** ObfuscatingStupidity: She looks and acts like a little girl pretty much all the time, but more than a few of her supports (particularly with Nah) will remind you that she really is over a thousand years old.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Errrr...rage!"''\\
''"You stupid bully!"''\\
''"I'm gonna crush you!"''\\
''"Who do you think I am?"''
* PunnyName: Nowi sounds like "no way".
* Really700YearsOld: She is a dragon after all.
* RescueRomance: If paired with Gregor.
** HugeGuyTinyGirl
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She has the most revealing outfit in the game (Clearly she hasn't changed her outfit since the last time she was enslaved). It would be even more AgeInappropriateDress [[LegalJailbait if it weren't for her being several hundred years old.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: In the Japanese version. Averted in the English dub.
* TomboyishPonytail
* TricksterMentor: From stealing Nah's dragonstone to demanding she play with her rather than allowing her to study, it seems at first that Nowi's just being her usual childish self. In actuality, she eventually points out that Nah was overusing her dragonstone and was risking wearing herself out due to her (for a Manakete) young age, and that doing nothing but studying had given her poor stamina.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter
** ScaledUp
** MagicPants
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Nowi occasionally shows resentment toward her long life span, since virtually everyone she befriends will end up dying long before her.
** MayflyDecemberRomance: Crosses into this if she marries someone.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A

* TheAhnold
* BadassNormal: Aside from being TheAhnold, he doesn't really have any defining character traits. He can't use magic, he's not related to royalty in any way, and he doesn't have a dark and mysterious past. He's just there to kick some ass.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BluntMetaphorsTrauma
* ChivalrousPervert: Quite a few of his supports with females involve him teasing them about having crushes on him, though tries to serve as a matchmaker for Cordelia.
** In his support with the Avatar, Gregor suggests ways for him/her to keep up his/her health... such as [[IntimateHealing sharing body heat with him in bed.]]
* CoolOldGuy
* CoolSword
** Can gain either an [[AnAxeToGrind Axe]] or [[BowAndSwordInAccord Bow]] depending his promotion.
* [[spoiler:DeadPersonImpersonation]]: [[spoiler:Sort of. His A support with Tharja reveals that Gregor is actually his brother's name, which he adopted out of respect after he failed to save him from bandits.]]
* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Gregor is actually an intelligent, well-rounded individual, despite his... [[TheAhnold impediments]] to effective communication.
* FaceOfAThug: He's a pretty friendly guy, but his appearance often leads to... misunderstandings. See NotWhatItLooksLike below.
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Easy come...easy go...It was...a good ride”''
* FieryRedhead
* FunnyForeigner: Implied to be this, which explains his broken English.
-->'''Gregor:''' "''Is just, how you say, flatulence? No, wait. ...Flippery? ...Flatness? ...Gregor does not remember. Is that word when people say lies to make other person feel better.''"
* GeniusBruiser: While big and muscular, Gregor is shown to be pretty intelligent. He claims that if you aren't smart, then you can't survive as mercenary. Part of this is shown in his knowledge of health and diseases.
* GentleGiant
* HulkSpeak: Which, again, does nothing to help his case.
* HuskyRusskie: His broken English makes him sound like this.
* MatchmakerCrush: [[spoiler:Gets one on Cordelia while trying to help her with Chrom.]]
* MayDecemberRomance: Most of his pairings due to the young age of the cast.
* JackOfAllStats[=/=]MightyGlacier: His modifiers. Good strength and skill, offset by a somewhat low luck modifier and a poor resistance modifier.
* LifeDrain: Through Sol, if he goes Hero.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: He's first seen chasing after Nowi after the latter has run away from him. Due to FaceOfAThug above, Chrom instantly assumes he's just a bad guy attacking her. Of course, ItMakesSenseInContext.
* OldMaster: In their supports, Gregor becomes a mentor to Lon'qu.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Subverted. Gregor initially jokes his paycheck is his main motivation, but it soon becomes apparent he's gained [[FireForgedFriends another reason]] for fighting.
* OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe: Says this to the Deadlords during Infinite Regalia.

* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Sumia, Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* {{Bishonen}}
* CombatMedic
* CrossDressingVoices: Voiced by ladies in both dubs.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As a child, his [[ParentalAbandonment parents abandoned]] him because they believed he was under DemonicPossession and he wandered his life bitter and alone until he joined the priesthood.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: And ''sounds'' like one too!
* EvenTheGuysWantHim / [[StupidSexyFlanders Stupid Sexy Libra]]: Even after he tells Virion he's a man, Virion continues to flatter him for his looks and tells Libra he's "like a rose". Libra thinks he's funny, but Virion has to remind himself that Libra's still a dude.
-->'''Virion:''' Oh... even though I saw his pure male side... [[IfItsYouItsOkay he still moves me]].
* {{Expy}}: An androgynous Monk who is often mistaken for a girl? [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Now where have I heard that before...]] But this time it's even more convincing due to the addition of voice acting.
** He even has a lot of [[HoYay suspect dialogue]] with a former noble whose possessions were forcefully removed, though Virion is more happy-go-lucky than Raven, and it's mostly one-sided on his part.

-->''“Gods... I beg of you... Take me... but do not forsake... my friends...”''
* GenderReveal: Normally PlayedForLaughs in the UnsettlingGenderReveal category, but there are also a couple of "normal" reveals.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has one on the back of his neck. [[spoiler:It's from his mother pulling Libra off of her when she abandoned him, clawing his neck in the process.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: The guy is an angel. Libra wouldn't hurt a fly. He'd axe a mook, but NEVER a fly.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Libra doesn't consider himself morally superior to anyone else despite his religious background.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* JackOfAllStats: A magical one, as his modifiers are not that impressive, save for one point in magic in a game where most males either have it unchanged or have a bad one. He does have the best resistance out of the male first-gen characters (Male Avatar excepted).
* MagicKnight: CombatMedic version.
* NamesTheSame: Perhaps by more than coincidence, Libra shares his English name for the Japanese name for the Physic Staff, which was translated Libra in most scanlations of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Holy War]]''.
* OppositesAttract: In his supports with Sully.
* [[spoiler: ParentalAbandonment:]] In his supports with Tharja, you find out that [[spoiler: as a child, his parents thought that he was possessed by a demon and abandoned him.

-->''"I can feel the darkness growing ever stronger..."''

A mopey Plegian dark mage with a jealous streak. She usually keeps to herself and chants disturbing hexes, but openly stalks the Avatar (aka you - the player), in whom she has an unhealthy interest. The one with the darkest thoughts. Her birthday is April 2nd.

->'''Class:''' Dark Mage
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KanaAkutsu (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (English)
----
* [[AntiHero Anti Heroine]]: Oh, so very much.
* [[BadPowersGoodPeople Bad Powers, Weird but not so Bad People]]: In her support with Donnel she more or less ridicules him, and his hometown, for believing in this, wondering how it hasn't been burned down yet. In the following support however it turns out the entire group became incredibly ill and she was the one to cure them, by aiming a curse at the illness. [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain She orders him to never let anyone know it was her.]]
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BirdsOfAFeather: If paired with Henry.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Her 0-1 stat-up quote when leveling up is "You'd better not hold this against me...", which appears to be addressed at the player themself. Doubles as TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou given her [[CuteAndPsycho nature.]]
* BrutalHonesty: She seems to have next to no brain-to-mouth filter.
* BornUnlucky: Has the lowest Luck of the first-generation women, both modifier-wise, and growth-wise.
* CreepyGood: Joins Chrom's party for a somewhat egotistical reason, openly stalks the Avatar, proficient in curses, possesses extreme jealousy[[spoiler:, uses her daughter Noire as a guinea pig for said curses and neglects her]]... she is definitely this.
* {{Curse}}: As her description states, she enjoys practicing these when left to her own devices.
* CleavageWindow: When promoted to Sorcerer. As if she didn't tick enough FetishFuel boxes already...
* [[spoiler:[[CrusadingWidower Crusading Widow]]: After losing her husband, Future Tharja [[DespairEventHorizon lost her mind]] and began a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, up to the moment where she sacrificed herself to ensure her daughter's survival.]]
* CycleOfRevenge: Her reason for leaving Plegia and joining Ylisse is that she has no interest in being drawn into Plegia's feud with Ylisse. This isn't because she thinks vengeance is wrong, but because she herself has no personal grudge against Ylisse and doesn't like the fact that she's fighting because of other people's need for revenge.
* [[DarkIsEvil Dark Is Bad]]: Pretty much the same case as Henry. [[spoiler:Tharja is aware of how dangerous a curse can be, however, and Present Tharja speculates that her future self didn't teach her daughter any of her curses for this reason.]]
** [[spoiler: [[ParentalNeglect Neglectful Parent]]: How much is uncertain, but Future Tharja is revealed to have had shades of this, having neglected Noire somewhat to study more methods of destroying enemies. Her support with Morgan if Tharja is the mother shows this side of her as well.]]
*** [[spoiler:Tharja's supports with Noire however, indicate that Future Tharja, deep down, really did care about her daughter. In fact, it is revealed in Tharja and Noire's The Future Past conversation that Future Tharja actually went MamaBear and performed a HeroicSacrifice to save Noire.]]
** [[spoiler:[[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]]: Future Tharja had a habit of practicing her curses on Noire, and even Present Tharja does it. Noire's father eventually resorts to taking away the tools she uses for cursing to try to stop her.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: "Yay, danger."
* ElementalPowers: Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe: Comes with an Elthunder tome.
** CastingAShadow: Since Dark Mage and Sorcerer have access to [[BlackMagic Dark Magic]].
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Very pale, very pretty... and can be creepy as Hell.
* EvilLaugh: Unlike the others, she isn't very loud with it, but the result is even more creepy.
* FlatJoy
* {{Gainaxing}}: According to Nowi:
--> ''Nowi'': You're the boingiest of them all. ...Trust me.
* GoodIsNotNice: Well, mostly weird, but still not very nice.
* HeelFaceTurn: Has to be recruited from the Plegian army.
* HiddenDepths: Several of her supports show she ''does'' have a... less creepy side. Her supports with Kellam show she cares about her family, for one.
** HeroicComedicSociopath
* {{Jerkass}}: Dark minded and not particularly nice. She even was neglectful to [[spoiler: her future daughter, Noire, by using her as a guinea pig for her hexes]].
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold[=/=]HiddenHeartOfGold: A ''very'' well-hidden one, mind.
* LadyOfBlackMagic
* LiesToChildren: She ''tries'' to lie to [[Really700YearsOld Nowi]] by saying her parents are not dead and are simply in a "[[NeverSayDie far away place]]". When it doesn't work, she just goes along with Nowi's poor [[SandInMyEyes attempt to not cry]].
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if she promotes to Dark Knight.
* MsFanservice: Actually acknowledged in the Japanese version, where her unique "trait" was "nicest body in the army".
* [[spoiler:MoralityChain: Her husband becomes one to her, if somewhat unsuccessfully. Though, he's more successful than the Future version of him.]]
* NoSocialSkills: In her B Support with the Avatar, she actually tries to be normal. Unfortunately, the [[OutOfCharacterMoment display]] freaks out the Avatar, because he/she had gotten [[WeWantOurJerkBack used to Tharja being her old creepy self.]]
* NotSoStoic: Listen to her two voice clips on the official site. The first is her sounding like a typical LadyOfBlackMagic, the second is her laughing gleefully.
** CuteButPsycho[=/=]BloodKnight: She laughs when using her ''Vengeance'' skill/Critical.
* OrgasmicCombat: Her attacking VoiceGrunting sounds...suggestive.
* PaperRam[=/=]GlassCannon: An odd mix, with the Paper Ram qualities leaning towards Charger. Tharja gets fantastic magic, and good Speed, and also gets a positive Defense modifier as well... but her Skill and Luck modifiers blow, making her inaccurate, and her Resistance is not that great either. Her Defense and Speed stats, while decent, are also not as good as she'd like them to be, meaning that she will have problems surviving against both physical and magical attacks latter on.
** Her poor accuracy can be supplemented by reclassing as a Sniper and learning the [[BoringButPractical Hit Rate +20 skill]].
* PerpetualFrowner: With a few exceptions outside of giving a {{Psychotic Smirk}}, she's always frowning.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"[[YouAreAlreadyDead You're already dead...]]"''\\
''"Do you like darkness?"''\\
''"Die now."''\\
''"[[EvilLaugh Mmmh-mmmh-mmmh-mmmh...]]"''
* PunchClockHero: Unusual for recruitable dark magic users in Fire Emblem history. Nevertheless, she is far more interested in pursuing her own interests than fighting for a cause, which is what allows her to be recruited.
* RapunzelHair
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: Future Tharja sacrificed herself to protect Noire, which may have been her way of atoning for the abuse she put her through.]]
* RedMage: In an unusual way. Her Dark Mage and Sorcerer classes combine standard magic with... BlackMagic!
** MagicKnight: Becomes a mounted version if promoted to Dark Knight, but that means she is no longer a RedMage.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In her C Support with Noire it's revealed that [[spoiler:part of the reason Future Tharja was so neglectful to her daughter was because Noire's father was killed first in the apocalyptic future, prompting this sort of behavior until Future Tharja was killed herself.]]
* SceneryCensor: In her swimsuit scene for the American version, a random cloak blocks her butt as she adjusts her bikini. Funnily enough, many note that the censor ''[[ThisTropeIsBleep actually ramps up the suggestiveness of the shot]]'' as it ''almost'' looks like she's GoingCommando instead.
* SensualSpandex
* SingleTargetSexuality[=/=]IfItsYouItsOkay: Her StalkerWithACrush relationship towards the Avatar doesn't change regardless of their gender.
** SecondLove: Even if she falls for someone else, the Avatar will be her first and foremost love. However she ''is'' clearly smitten by some men, in particular [[spoiler:Donnel]], of whom she doesn't mention the Avatar whatsoever in their supports (even S-rank) and ''she'' is actually the one who proposes to him.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS
* StalkerWithACrush: Her relationship with the Avatar to begin with. Even if he marries her, she keeps some elements of this with him. (Hell, even if she marries ''someone else'' she keeps those elements! See her [[BrutalHonesty straightforward warnings]] towards [[DudeLooksLikeALady Libra]] and [[HeroicComedicSociopath Henry]] about this whole deal before they decide to get married in their S support.)
* StrangeGirl: Most of the cast finds her at least slightly creepy at first. In her S Support with Henry, she even admits that their proposal was probably the strangest engagement ever, then decides that it's fitting [[BirdsOfAFeather because they're not exactly normal people.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her outfit doesn't leave much to the imagination, though her portrait happens to have her tome and arms blocking most of her outfit.
** Although it isn't ''that'' special since it's the standard garb of Dark Mages, both [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/8/8c/Dark_Mage_Male.jpg male]] and [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/e/e9/Dark_Mage_Female_1.jpg female]]. She just doesn't wear the headdress.
* [[spoiler:WarriorTherapist: In her supports, when she's not obsessing over hexes or the Avatar, she's willing to lend an unjudging ear to the problems of others. Subverted in cases where her ear-lending is done to advance an experiment, or happens because she's advancing an agenda of her own.]]
* {{Yandere}}: For the Avatar. During their S Support, she says, "I can’t believe you made me love you! Course, if you back out… I’ll murder you in your sleep."
** Tharja apparently has (heavily implied to be erotic) dreams about Avatar after Tharja falls in love with him/her. Tharja also expects Avatar to live up to the promise that the ''dream'' of him/her made.

-->''"Another happy customer."''

An enigmatic merchant with a bevy of identical sisters - more than she can count. Like most merchants, she is a smooth-talker who loves both gold and rich customers. The one with the fattest nest egg. Her birthday is June 11th.

Tropes about ''Awakening'' Anna goes here, while tropes about Anna in general goes [[Characters/FireEmblem here]].

->'''Class:''' Trickster
->'''Voiced by:''' Saori Seto (Japanese), KarenStrassman (English)
----

* BattleCouple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BornLucky: Her main statistical asset is a truly ''incredible'' Luck growth.
* ChristmasCake
* CrutchCharacter: Zig-Zagged, along with Frederick, she plays this role. Early game she can dodge almost anything that comes her way. However, mid-game, unless you get a few lucky finds and get a bunch of Levin Swords (or buy them from Spotpass characters), she tapers off a little bit. Late game she plays as more of a support character, being able to unlock doors and chests, and can heal and rescue units with a staff. (Given she has a high magic base, she'll always heal a decent amount, and possess decent range for Rescue.)
* DerailingLoveInterests: Averted. She's a romance option for the Avatar, which led to doubts about her relationship with Jake. As it turns out, however, [[{{Expy}} this is a different Anna entirely]], so it's all cool.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Attempted in her support conversation with Tiki. She tries to exploit the Valmese people's worship of the "Voice of the Divine Dragon" and said dragon's innocent nature to get rich quick... and almost gets eaten once Tiki figures it out.
** [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud She would have gotten away with it if she had just kept her mouth shut.]]
* DoubleEntendre
-->''"Thanks, baby. I love you too. Want to go in the back room and...count gold?"''
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“It's true...what they say... In the end, material possessions mean nothing...”''
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: She has a miniature teddy bear ''attached to the hilt of her sword''.
* HurricaneOfPuns: In a similar manner to Gaius and his sweets, the majority of her battle quotes are related to her profession.
* JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers lean her towards this, her only speciality being her excellent luck. Her starting class is more of a FragileSpeedster though.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Her supports in general.
* LuckySeven: Can learn this naturally. through her starting class. It raises Hit and Avoid by 20 for 7 turns at the start, but she has to rely on her own skill afterwards.
* MagicKnight: However, her offensive magic comes from magic-casting weapons.
** CombatMedic
** CoolSword
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Combines with UncannyFamilyResemblance, InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals, and NamesTheSame, akin to [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Nurse Joy]]. When confronted by the fact that there are those Annas running through the Outrealm Gate to the other ''Fire Emblem'' time periods, she says that they are her sisters.
* MemeticHandGesture: Resting her index finger on her face, like her sisters.
* MoneyFetish: She ''loves'' money above all else. [[spoiler:Although during her confession, she says that if the Avatar keeps it up that she'll love him more than money. One of her event tile conversations with the Avatar as her husband does indeed have her tell him that she loves him more than money.]]

-->''"Everyone's staring! How embarassing..."''

A shy, introverted caravan dancer who goes above and beyond to help others. Despite her stage fright, she is unparalleled in her craft and has admirers around the world. The most mesmerising singer. Her birthday is August 20th.

-> '''Class:''' Dancer
->'''Voiced by:''' Rei Matsuzaki (Japanese), KarenStrassman (English)
----
* AfterActionPatchUp: With Henry.
* ApologisesALot: To the point that Vaike tells her in their A support to ''stop'' apologizing so they can have an actual conversation.
* BareYourMidriff
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Basilio [[spoiler:and the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BishieSparkle: It's an actual part of her Dancer class model.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: In her C-Support with Henry.
-->'''Olivia:''' I know you! You're that creepy kid who likes blood and magic and... blood magic!
* TheChick
* CoolSword: The first Dancer in an internationally-released Fire Emblem to be able to ''effectively'' fight back.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If Olivia has 18 Support Points or more with Chrom by the end of Chapter 11, and none of the other candidates have initiated a C Support with him, she will have the highest marriage priority with Chrom (otherwise, she will be the lowest priority). A clever decision, considering how you only have one chapter to build up their support points before Chrom's marriage.
* FragileSpeedster: Downplayed in regards to her modifiers where she's more like a JackOfAllStats, but played straight in regards to her classes.
* {{Irony}}: She's a ShrinkingViolet whose passion is [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl sensual dancing in front of a public.]]
* LastGirlWins: UpToEleven if paired with Chrom. She joins in ''the very chapter'' Chrom is forced to marry someone, meaning you have to pretty much keep them glued to each other the entire mission, you can't initiate any romantic support conversation until Chrom's marriage (or make sure all of his other potential love interests are already paired up with other men), in order to pair them.
** StrangledByTheRedString: If you manage to pull this off, they'll be married ''[[WhatTheHellPlayer before they even have a chance to support!]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And the game Lampshades the hell out of it.]]
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Lissa]]''': "Turn my back one minute and you're married. The next minute? A baby!"
* LuminescentBlush: Hell, she blushes even in her SuperMovePortraitAttack.
* MagicDance
* MagikarpPower: Her stat growths as a Swordmaster point to this. She'll end up maxing (or nearly maxing) skill and speed and will get ''surprisingly'' high strength (for someone who starts as a Dancer).
** TruthInTelevision: Professional dancers in real life are very skilled, generally are in great shape, and can be incredibly strong depending on their focus.
* MaleGaze: Most characters' official artwork has them viewed from the front. Olivia's picture up there... isn't.
* PerformanceAnxiety: Even though she's fine using her dance to give her allies an extra turn, she's extremely shy about putting on ''actual'' performances in front of others.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"I can fight too!''"\\
''"Stop staring!"''\\
''"Oh, let this be over!"''\\
''"I didn't want to do this!"''
* RapunzelHair: In a ponytail with two braids as sidetails.
* ReluctantWarrior: It's quite apparent that Olivia is a dancer first and foremost, and really wants nothing to do with all the violence around her.
* RoseHairedGirl
* ShrinkingViolet: Not excessively so, but Olivia is quite shy. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] with her title in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue during the ending credits: [[ShapedLikeItself Shrinking Violet]].
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Tries to stalk her son Inigo in order to see him dance.
* StatusBuff: Her dances, and her main role. Made even better through a skill of hers.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She seems to be wearing scarves.
* SuperReflexes: Thanks to her high speed and luck (both caps and growths), she'll dodge a lot of attacks thrown her way.
* TwiceShy: With Lon'qu.

-->''"All in a day's work."''

A wyvern rider in the service of House Virion. She was raised with simple values and likes to cook and sew, but loves her "sweet, adorable" wyvern Minerva even more. The most terrifying when angry. Her birthday is October 17th.

->'''Class:''' Wyvern Rider
->'''Voiced by:''' Kana Akutsu (Japanese), Amanda C. Miller (English)
----
* AnAxeToGrind: And in her official art, she notably wields the [[spoiler:'''''[[InfinityPlusOneSword Helswath]]''''', one of Jugdral's twelve holy weapons]]!
** Can gain [[BladeOnAStick Lances]] if promoted to Wyvern Lord.
* {{Badass}}: She gained her vicious mount wyvern Minerva by defeating her and surviving her fire breath. She only got a burn scar on her shoulder (bald spot in the Japanese version) from the encounter. ''[[LittleMissBadass While nine years old.]]''
* BattleCouple: She can be paired with any first generation character, except Chrom and Basilio [[spoiler:as well as the male [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As her profile says, she's the scariest to anger of all people in the army. Considering said army includes a {{Yandere}} and a thousand year old dragon who almost ''ate'' someone who got on her bad side, that's ''really'' saying something.
* BodyguardCrush: If paired with Virion.
* ChristmasCake: She believed she'd become this due to Minerva scaring off suitors.
* DeadpanSnarker: For such a sweet and ladylike YamatoNadeshiko, she's got a wicked sense of humor.
* DubNameChange: She's called "Zelcher" in the Non-English European versions.
* DragonRider
* FieryRedhead: Subverted, as she's usually very calm and tranquil unless you get on her bad side.
* FluffyTamer
* FriendToBugs
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Even if Cherche is promoted to a Griffon Rider, her conversations will still reference Minerva as her primary mount.
* GlassCannon[=/=]MightyGlacier: Of the physical variety. Has a great strength modifier, and a good defense modifier, but her skill and speed are low, and her resistance is poor, which, when combined with the Wyvern Rider class, means that she'd better get the first hit when facing a mage, especially if the mage happens to be packing a [[AchillesHeel wind tome]].
* GirlyBruiser: And how! In battle, she's one of the toughest females in the game. But her hobbies consist of classic housewife traits like sewing and cooking, and she has a very caring personality. It makes sense when you consider that she originally trained to be a cleric but became a wyvern rider instead due to her relationship with Minerva.
* HairDecorations: A hairband with dragon/wyvern wings on it.
* LadyOfWar: A lovely, classy lady who can kick all kind of ass and look good doing it.
* {{Meido}}: She was a servant to Virion and the House Rosanne
* NightmareFetishist: She generally dotes on her wyvern like she's a puppy dog and often reacts in surprise when Minerva almost attacked other people. Her standard reaction to anything abnormal is a soft, dreamy "Cute...".
* NinjaMaid: Although less on the ninja and more the axe-wielding type.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Rest in pieces!"''\\

''"I bid you farewell!"''\\
''"It has been a pleasure!"''

-->''"Do you think we could breed Risen in here? I love pets!" ''

A Plegian dark mage with a fetish for bloodshed and an indelible grin. While disarmingly optimistic, he shows a gruesome lack of mercy while on the battlefield. The one with the lowest heart rate. His birthday is November 13th.

->'''Class:''' Dark Mage
->'''Voiced by:''' AkemiOkamura (Japanese), BrycePapenbrook (English)
----
* AbusiveParents[=/=]ParentalNeglect: His parents mostly ignored him, and dumped him off in the woods alone to be RaisedByWolves. [[spoiler:The wolf tried to visit him when he returned home, and she was killed by the townsfolk for her trouble]]. ''Then'' his parents sent him to a BoardingSchoolOfHorrors, where he was abused when he did something wrong and nearly died on more than one occasion. Henry... did not come out of that childhood with his sanity completely intact.
* AffablyEvil: Though not exactly "evil", he's still a very friendly fellow. He can also be very sweet to his friends; unfortunately, this tends to result in him offering to do horrific and/or creepy things on their behalf.
* {{Asexual}}: Zigzagged. While he does confess his emotional love ([[BlackHumor in his own weird way]]), he doesn't really seem to "get" ''sexuality''; as shown in a few of his proposals. To Miriel, he asks her to marry and start a family with him ForScience. To Nowi, he suggests that they make babies purely so that she'll have some Manakete friends to play with.
* BattleCouple: Can be paired with any female first generation character, except Anna, Say'ri, Tiki, and Flavia[[spoiler:, as well as the female [[SecretCharacter SpotPass characters]]]].
* BirdsOfAFeather: Him. Tharja. End of the story.
* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors: Was raised in WizardingSchool version one so his [[ParentalNeglect parents wouldn't have to take care of him]]. According to him, he has nearly died on multiple occasions while in said school because they would put him in a room filled with ''metal spikes'' as punishment whenever he "did something naughty". Implied to be why he turned out so... unhinged.
** In the Japanese version, they send him to an ''institution'' instead.
* BloodKnight: He joins Chrom because he loves war.
-->'''Henry''': ''"I don't care about politics. I just want to throw fireballs at the bad guys."''
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: To a degree. Henry genuinely doesn't seem to understand that what he's doing could be considered bad, just as long as it's helping the person he speaks to. Cherche comments that he needs to spend more time with people, whereas Panne describes him as a wild animal that needs to be taught humanity.
** CharacterDevelopment: The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} shows that he's beginning to comprehend just how divorced he is from "normal" people and conventional concepts of morality. He exhibits signs of trying to rectify this, which is likely a direct result of the amount of time he's spending with the Shepherds.
--->'''Henry (to Kellam):''' "When I was a kid, my only friends were wolves, so they ended up raising me. Thing is...that made it tough for me to learn about basic human warmth and affection... Like just now. I tried to be nice to you and show you that I care and stuff, right? But I got it all wrong and instead made you freak out. Sorry about that..."
* BodyHorror: His event tile and level up quotes reveal he's quite enthusiastic about this potentially happening to ''him!'' [[NightmareFetishist ... Meeeeeep.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: Often seems disconnected from all rhyme or reason save his own, although the clouds his head inhabits are black, ominous, and probably rain blood.
* CombatSadomasochist: And he does ''not'' use safe-words.
** Not ''entirely'' true. Just mostly. When [[spoiler:his child]] asks to train with them, he specifically tells them that a safe word is necessary, because [[BlackMagic his magic]] is pretty nasty. It's actually rather heartwarming. [[CreepyGood In a Henry sort of way]].
* ComedicSociopathy: Henry really gets a kick out of schadenfreude.
* CreepyGood: Like Tharja, he is definitely this, what with being a BloodKnight, being unnecessarily cruel, practicing curses, and doing it all with a smile!
* CriticalHit: Can get a really high Critical Hit rate on his own, thanks to his skills.
* CrossDressingVoices: Only in the Japanese version; it was averted in the English dub.
* {{Curse}}: His supports with Sumia indicate that he's also a practitioner.
** MercyKill: In his supports with Maribelle he mentions that he knows a curse that kills people the instant they are fatally wounded.
* CutsceneIncompetence: Due to the Father/Noire support being (more or less) the same regardless of father, Henry never removes Tharja's curses from either him or Noire, despite being so powerful that he can brush them off if he wanted to.
* [[DarkIsEvil Dark Is Bad]]: While not actually evil, Henry is [[TokenEvilTeammate more malicious]] than the other main characters. This is more prominent in the English version, where his PetTheDog moments are toned down.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Non-villainous example, he joins because he ''somehow'' knows he'll be able to fight more if he's with Chrom's party than with Plegia.
* DissonantSerenity: It takes a special kind of insanity to be smiling whilst telling the person you hope includes you in his army that if he doesn't want you he can just kill you on the spot.
** DissonantLaughter: Hell, his ''death cry'' is a laugh, though noticeably weaker than his usual cackles.
* ElementalPowers - Able to wield magic tomes.
** PlayingWithFire: Comes with an Elfire tome.
** BlowYouAway
** ShockAndAwe
** CastingAShadow: Since Dark Mage and Sorcerer have access to BlackMagic.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Henry Has Standards]]: In a conversation with the Einherjar [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Legion]], Henry chides him for assuming that they are similiar, stating that he does have morals and a code of honor, even if they are "a little messed up" as stated in his own words, compared to Legion just doing what he's told. It is also stated in his paired endings that he became a surprisingly good father to whoever child he has.
* EvilLaugh: He laughs like a madman when he defeats enemies.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Even during his Confession! He's like [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Oscar]] that way, though there's one of his portrait (panicked) that has him opened his eyes. [[spoiler:They're black.]]
* FamousLastWords:
-->''“Argh, this is the end for me... So dark... So quiet... So beautiful..."''
* FreakyFridayFlip: Uses magic to do this with Sumia in their supports.
* FreudianExcuse: His parents completely neglected him and his only friend and substitute parent was [[spoiler:a wolf near the town he was born in.]] Then [[spoiler:the townspeople proceeded to kill the wolf and afterwards, he was sent to an institution / wizard school where there were several rather nasty and deadly experiments done to and by the others. This also included being locked in a room filled with metal spikes as one of their punishments.]] Doubles as a DarkAndTroubledPast, as in his supports it's implied that [[spoiler: he genuinely ''doesn't'' understand human empathy at all, and it's ''only'' in his time with the Shepherds that he's starting to comprehend it.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Crows are quite fond of him. Implied that he gets along great with any animal, including [[DevilInPlainSight Cherche's wyvern Minerva]].
* [[GladHesOnOurSide Glad He's On Our Side]]: He engenders this reaction from quite a few people, and [[BloodKnight with]] [[SociopathicHero good]] [[TokenEvilTeammate reason]].
** In fact, he used to be one of Gangrel's subordinates, but was incapacitated before he could go head to head with the party. Glad he's on our side, indeed.
* [[spoiler: [[GoodParents Good Father]]: In all of his paired endings[[note]]With the exception of the Avatar's, which is always the same[[/note]], it's stated that he turns out to be a surprisingly good father. In fact, upon meeting his future child, he immediately shows his own [[CreepyGood unique]] brand of fatherly devotion:]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Henry (when asked about his life):''' "I mostly just sling curses and hang out with crows. But I'm not about to add deadbeat dad to my list of hobbies! I'll take care of you. Even if I die a horrible death, I'll protect you from the... [[InnocentlyInsensitive Hey, why the long face?]]"]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: His more unhinged tendencies are mostly played for ([[GallowsHumor dark]]) laughs.
** SociopathicHero: His creepier moments (and he has quite a few) land him in this territory.
--->'''Ricken:''' "Henry, it's my job to kill Plegian soldiers... So I have to believe that they deserve to die. [[WhatMeasureIsAMook But now you've reminded me that they aren't faceless blobs with axes]]. [[EvenMooksHaveLovedOnes They have friends, and families, and...]] H-how am I going to fight them if I know that? What if I hesitate?"
--->'''Henry:''' "You're weird. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday I don't see the problem here at all.]]"
* {{Irony}}: He was born on the 13th, and appears in chapter 13, the number typically associated with bad luck and misfortune. However, he has pretty good Luck and November 13th is World Kindness Day.
* JackOfAllStats[=/=]MightyGlacier: His modifiers. He has the same magic modifier as Libra, but gets good skill as well as decent defense for a mage. However, though he is not hit in speed, he has bad luck (but not as bad as Tharja) and a bad Speed base which mitigates his avoid somewhat, though he can lean towards a hard-hitting LightningBruiser with some Speedwings and training (and Pair-Ups), and his skills can give him a very high crit rate. He also gets a point in Strength, which makes him one of the best {{Magic Knight}}s out of the first-gen characters if you decide to go with such a class.
* {{Keet}}: A somewhat creepy example.
* LargeHam: Almost never, but he does have one shining moment in his A-Support with Olivia:
-->'''Henry:''' "[[BigNo NOOOOO]]! [[SayMyName OLIVIAAAAAA]]! [[PleaseWakeUp Come back to me, Olivia]]! [[GoIntoTheLight Stay out of the light]]! [[SuddenlyShouting STAY OUT OF THE LIIIIIIGHT!]]"
* LifeDrain: Through Life Absorb, if he promotes to Dark Knight.
* LighterAndSofter: In a backstory sense: In the original Japanese script, Henry was raised in an abusive orphanage where he was subject to torture. In the English localization, he was sent to an elite magic school by his unloving parents. In general, Henry's dialogue and motivations were changed to be less dark than in the original script; see the Pet the Dog example below.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Played with. Henry's already unhinged, but the things he'll offer to do to help one of his love interests is... pretty frightening.
* MercyKill: Offers to do this in the ''Golden Gaffe'' {{DLC}} after Risen steal his things. Considering what those things probably are...
-->'''Henry:''' "Are you the one who stole my bag? Because the stuff in there'll probably kill you slowly and painfully. Just saying. Aw, but I'm a nice guy, so come here. I'll finish you off quickly. Hold still..."
* MundaneUtility: His supports reveal that he has hexes and curses for a large variety of non-combat situations, including curses that help one sleep and curses that can "cure" having fallen in love.
** When he temporarily fixes some dishes that [[CuteClumsyGirl Sumia had broken upon tripping while carrying them]], he explains to her that using curses for daily stuff is actually a well-spread practice among Dark Mages.
* NiceGuy: While the way he tends to act can freak people out, he genuinely likes helping people. Even if the way he goes about it is completely misguided and a little... unorthodox.
** Unlike Tharja, the only time he places hexes on his fellow Shepherds is if they ask him to do so.
** A support with Miriel has Henry saying that he would like to make a hex that makes life easier on pregnant women.
* NightmareFetishist: See BodyHorror for one. And his response when asked about his dreams?
-->"I want to die a horrible, bloody death that's completely painless. ...I don't like ouchies."
** There's also his mildly terrifying response to fighting one of the Deadlords.
--->'''Henry:''' "Dang! That's quite a nasty curse someone put on you. So if I strike you down, you'll come back as strong as before? Sounds like an eternity of agony... Where do I sign up?"
* NoodleIncident: He was apparently incapacitated and therefore unable to assist Gangrel during his final fight against Chrom, but it's never made clear exactly what happened to render him unable to fight.
* ObliviouslyEvil: What do you mean killing birds so Lissa can sleep is a bad thing?
** In his A Support with Panne, he offers to murder Chrom in order to plunge humanity into unprecedented levels of chaos and bloodshed, all in the name of making a friend happy. He ''does not understand'' what's wrong with doing so if the end result would be Panne feeling better.
* OddFriendship: With anyone, really, but his supports with Frederick stand out the most.
* PerkyGoth: Sully says he's awfully sunny for a dark mage.
* PerpetualSmiler: Whether it's a goofy smile, an [[TheUnSmile UnSmile]], or a SlasherSmile, he always has some form of a smile on his face.
* PetTheDog: Surprisingly, when Olivia thinks she is going to stop him from [[MercyKill mercy killing]] an injured puppy in their C support, he calls her crazy because [[HeroesLoveDogs he loves dogs]]. He seems to have a soft spot for animals in general, actually.
** In the original Japanese text, he does offer to kill it -- but as a mercy, because its injuries are so severe.
** His paired endings say that, for all his flaws, he can be a pretty decent dad for his kids.
** The ''Summer Scramble'' {{DLC}} is pretty much nothing ''but'' PetTheDog moments for Henry, to the point that it seems that he's genuinely beginning to gain some sort of understanding of human emotion and empathy. Libra notes that Henry has been deliberately risking his life to save civilians and his comrades; when Henry tries to laugh it off, Libra points out that he's ''seen'' Henry observing the battlefield and moving to help those in danger. Henry's response to this is a very telling VisibleSilence.
* ThePollyanna: Revealed in supports. An interesting example though, as he is quite unhinged.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Have some death!"''\\
''"Special delivery!"''\\
''"[[EvilLaugh Hahahahaha!]]"''\\
''"I'm gonna kill you!"''
* PungeonMaster: He loves puns. [[HurricaneOfPuns His recruitment is probably the best example]], but he even sneaks a few into his level up quotes.
* PunchClockHero: Similiar to Tharja. Though, he joins because he figured he'll last longer with them than against them.
* PureIsNotGood: Tharja says that his power derives from his purity. He is kinda crazy.
* [[RaisedByWolves Raised By A Wolf]]: [[spoiler:And then his fellow townsmen killed her.]]
* RavensAndCrows: He comes to the map where he can be recruited with an entire flock of them. Tharja's support implies that they are his pagan that protect his identity from everyone prior that.
* RedMage: In an unusual way. His Dark Mage and Sorcerer classes combine standard magic with... BlackMagic!
** MagicKnight: Becomes a mounted version if promoted to Dark Knight, but that means he is no longer a RedMage.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In his supports with Ricken, Ricken notes that Henry didn't care at all that his fellow Plegians were killed by the Shepherds, and asks Henry if he'd care at all if Ricken were killed. Surprisingly, Henry tells Ricken that he'd actually be very sad and ''angry'', and would hunt down the person responsible. And kill them. Bloodily. ...Oh yes. There would be blood.
** It's strongly implied that he went on one of these after [[spoiler:his wolf friend was murdered; he all but says that he bloodily slaughtered all of the people responsible for her death]]. He was [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior just a kid at the time]].
* SexEqualsLove: In his S support with Nowi. [[spoiler:Throughout the support, Nowi gets sad that she has no Manakete friends - so Henry makes an illusion for her. The problem is, she doesn't like it because it's not real, so he goes away and has a think about what to do. When he returns, he says that, if they have lots of kids, she'll have plenty of Manakete friends to play with]]. Yes, really.
* SleepCute: In his A-Support with Lissa, Lissa ends up falling asleep on him.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: And flower. And insect. In fact, as long as it's alive, Henry can have a conversation with it.
* StepfordSmiler: In the Japanese version he's a straight Type A pretending to be a Type C. The English version is rather unclear on the issue, though it seems to lean more toward Henry genuinely being exactly as cheerful as he says he is with a side order of crazy along for the ride.
* StoryBreakerPower: An InformedAbility restricted to his support conversations, but according to those, he has a few hexes that have rather large potential, including the ability to kill people from huge distances with just a hair, switch bodies with others and even to temporarily reverse time. He is also a master at dispelling enemy magic and can even return it straight to the sender.
** His supports with the Avatar also reveal he eventually learns how to summon Risen (albeit without control over them) and send them against their enemies. Sadly, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation he can't do this in actual combat]]. Of course, the Avatar specifically orders him not to, considering the Risen would eventually start tearing into nearby towns.
* [[StrangeGirl Strange Guy]]: ... You have to ask?
* {{Stripperific}}: Averted; the generic Dark Mage outfit (which Tharja happens to wear) is mostly made of SensualSpandex and has some cloth reserved for the crotch area. Henry's outfit (which is used in-game) is much more modest.
* ThirteenIsUnlucky: His birthday is on 13th of November, and he joins in Chapter 13.
* TokenEvilTeammate: More so in the English version than in the Japanese version, though.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: ''Very'' troubling. When he was a kid, he [[spoiler:made sure that the people who killed his wolf friend paid ''in blood'']].
* TheUnsmile: His "angry" portrait.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy
** WhiteHairBlackHeart: Henry might not be ''evil'', but he's not exactly ''good'', either.

-->''"Every sword must be tempered in its time."''

The upright and dignified princess of the Chon'sin dynasty. Her old-fashioned speech and manners set her apart from the Ylisseans. She loves her brother Yen'fay fiercely, but is currently his enemy for some reason. [[spoiler:It was for her sake that her brother joined Walhart's army. She found out about this after his death. She died in the BadFuture timeline.]] The most talented skin diver. Her birthday is January 11th.

->'''Class:''' Swordmaster
->'''Voiced by:''' SeikoYoshida (Japanese), Stacy Okada (English)
----
* AntiquatedLinguistics: She has a very formal and old-fashioned manner of speech that makes her sound almost like a character from Shakespeare at times, possibly as a result of AccentAdaptation during the game's dubbing process.
* BadassPrincess
* BattleCouple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BigBrotherWorship
* {{Chickification}}: Subverted hard. Excellus ''thinks'' that [[spoiler:revealing why her brother sacrificed himself]] will completely break her but, ultimately, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge it just pisses her off enough to come after him]] and, if you let her, [[LaserGuidedKarma chop his filthy head off]]. This subversion doesn't count as {{Xenafication}}, though; as she's a {{Badass}} to begin with.
* CoolSword
** KatanasAreJustBetter: She's depicted as wielding one in her artwork.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Can learn Astra.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Tiki. Their supports have them gradually evolve into HeterosexualLifePartners.
* HeroicBSOD: She had one before the game began, watching Chon'sin burn before Walhart's forces. She has another one [[spoiler:After Yen'fay's death]].
* HimeCut
* JackOfAllStats: Her modifiers. Her classes lets her mostly be a FragileSpeedster otherwise.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: In the BadFuture timeline, which is why Yen'fay from that timeline eventually time traveled to the past.]]
* LadyOfWar
* MasterSwordsman: Her initial class is a Swordmaster.
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Her reaction upon learning the truth about Yen'fay.]]
* OneWomanArmy: Since we never see anyone else from Chon'sin rebelling against Walhart, the implication is that she ''is it''. In-gameplay, she doesn't start as one but can be developed into one.
* PreMortemOneLiner
-->''"Submit!"''\\
''"Now!"''\\
''"Guide me!"''\\
''"Die!"''
* RebelLeader
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* [[spoiler:TragicKeepsake: Yen'fay's sword, Amatsu.]]
* {{Wutai}}: Her supports with the Avatar seem to indicate that Chon'sin is one. Specifically, she mentions the cherry blossoms in her hometown, and that their traditional diet consists mostly of fish and rice. Her C support with a female Avatar reveals that she wears {{sarashi}}, and her official art depicts her wielding a [[KatanasAreJustBetter Katana-like weapon.]] Oddly, though, her accent sounds more French than anything.

->''"Let's give these kettleheads a taste of our barbarian roots!"''

The West-Khan of the militant nation of Ferox, he respects those with valor. He often acts and speaks in a silly way, but he is deceptively quick-witted and definitely possesses the strength befitting of his position. He acts as a fatherly protector of Chrom and co. and is both the rival and friend of the East-Khan Flavia. Has the biggest reactions among his companions. His birthday is August 13th.

->'''Class:''' Warrior
->'''Voiced by:''' MasakiTerasoma (Japanese), PatrickSeitz (English)
----
* AffectionateNickname: Flavia calls him "oaf", but it's not always affectionate.
* TheArcher
* AmbidextrousSprite: His portrait gets mirrored when switching sides during conversations. This results in his eyepatch flip-flopping eyes. Oddly enough, his confession scene also has his right eye patched, when his official artwork and game model have his left eye patched.
* AnAxeToGrind
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking

* LargeAndInCharge: Ruler of West Regna Ferox, he's also the biggest playable character. [[spoiler:Unless we count Walhart.]]
* LateCharacterSyndrome: Suffers this on the easier two difficulties. His stat bonuses on the later two make him useful, however.
* LightningBruiser: His modifers lean him towards being a physical one, though magic can still do quite the damage against him, and his starting stats and class makes him somewhat of a GlassCannon (albeit a not too fragile one).
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules / GameplayAndStorySegregation: Pulls a critical during his scripted fight with Walhart, despite having a 0% crit rate.
* NoodleIncident: He promises to tell the male Avatar a funny story involving a cat and a sandbag.
* OhCrap: His reaction word-for-word when he meets [[OneManArmy Walhart.]]
* {{Pirate}}: According to his conversation with Morgan, if he's Morgan's father, Basilio used to be one, before becoming Regna Ferox's West-Khan.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
** HonorBeforeReason: He tries to take on Walhart, even after he gets critically injured by him. It didn't go well.[[spoiler:.. in the BadFuture, as that is what killed him there. In the present however, Lucina's words causes him to realize that [[KnowWhenToFoldEm Walhart is way too strong even for him]], and he [[PlayingPossum plays dead instead]], allowing him to swap the stones in the Fire Emblem with forgeries when Validar wasn't watching, and pull off a BigDamnHeroes moment later on.]]

** PlatonicLifePartners: They're unique in the sense that they are the only two characters of opposite sex who aren't related and yet they cannot marry each other ([[FanPreferredCouple as much as some players would want to]]). Hence, they can only get up to an A rank support.
* TheWorfEffect: Naturally being both {{Badass}} and FamedInStory, he's the game's go-to guy for this trope.
** After Chapter 12, you find out Basilio and his army took a devastating blow from the Valmese forces off screen. The characters explicitly comment on how "they must be tough if they beat his forces".
** The second time, [[spoiler:he's going up against Walhart himself, and gets his ass handed to him in proper fashion to show off how much of a beast Walhart is in combat]]. That said, [[spoiler:it also ends up being a huge fake-out, as Basilio fakes being dead thanks to Lucina's warning so he can come back and be a [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Hero]] later on]].

Basilio's counterpart, the East-Khan of Ferox. A brave, heroic and strong-minded woman who yields to no man. She dislikes formalities and treats her opponents equally no matter whom, but also has a side to her that pays attention to her surroundings and an attention to detail. She and Basilio are rivals, but also good friends. Likes doing push ups the most out of the whole army. Her birthday is October 28th.

->'''Class:''' Hero
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AtsukoTanaka (Japanese), TaraPlatt (English)
----
* AnAxeToGrind
* BattleCouple: Possibly with Male Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* CoolBigSis: Has the vibes. In Female Avatar's support with her, she says she wants to adopt the Avatar because she looks so lonely even in the midst of the army. But [[ThatCameOutWrong the proposal ends up sounding]] [[MistakenForGay a lot like a love confession;]] [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]] [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday ensues]].
* CoolSword
* DarkSkinnedBlond: She looks to be actually black.
* [[spoiler:EleventhHourRanger]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills: From what was likely several hundred yards away, Flavia somehow sniped Emmeryn's executioner with a ''throwing axe''.
* JackOfAllStats: A somewhat physical one thanks to her modifiers. Also starts in the Hero class, which tends towards this.
* LateCharacterSyndrome: Suffers this on the first two difficulties. Subverted on the latter two, since the bonuses given in those modes mostly make up for it.
* LifeDrain: Sol.
* ModestRoyalty: Both of Ferox's kings are explicitly making sure that they prefer to address both themselves and their guests in the way that they most comfortable of, but Flavia is the first of the two who Chrom meets and says it right on his face.

->'''Class:''' Hero
->'''Voiced by:''' DaisukeOno (Japanese), JamiesonPrice (English)
----
* AFatherToHisMen
* AnAxeToGrind: Not half bad with an Axe, and starts with a B rank.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Starts with Luna. Which he can't get through his reclass options.
* {{Badass}}: Considering he's got a massive army under his command and is nearly capped in all stats at base...
** As if that wasn't enough, just look at his skills: [[UpToEleven Swordbreaker, Axebreaker, Lancebreaker, Luna AND Sol!!]]
* BadassBaritone
* BattleCouple Possibly with Female Avatar if S Support is achieved.
* BashBrothers: With the Male Avatar, if A support is reached.
* BloodKnight
* BoringButPractical: The strategy he uses against you in his Spotpass chapter. [[spoiler:He's in the middle of a massive enemy force (50 units) [[TheWarSequence that all come charging after you]] in one overwhelming ZergRush. Priam is of course the strongest enemy on the field, and given his dangerous skillset and the number of other enemies you're trying to deal with, it's easy for him to get the drop on you in a crowd.]]
* BraggingRightsReward: As the final [=SpotPass=] bonus unit, by time you can unlock him, he's... kinda worthless.
** This is subverted hard as of the second batch of DLC. With the Ultimate Trials and the ones focusing on the BadFuture, and the enemies being quite the step up from the main story (where they were already more competent and powerful than your usual Fire Emblem enemy unit), you are going to need him.
* CanonWelding: [[spoiler:He claims to be a descendant of Ike. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Yes, that Ike]].]]
* CoolSword: [[spoiler:Ragnell]]
** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: [[spoiler:Ragnell]] can be used as a ranged attack in this style.
* DeadpanSnarker: Infrequently, but his wit is no duller than [[spoiler: Ike's]].
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Exactly how you recruit him. Priam apparently amassed his former army by employing this method himself.
* ExcaliburInTheRust: His [[spoiler:Ragnell]] is visibly dull, full of cracks, and its very brittle hilt is crudely wrapped in bandage just so it won't fall apart. Not as awesome as when [[spoiler:Ike]] wields it, but still an awesome rank A sword nevertheless.
* EleventhHourRanger: He's as eleventh-hour as it gets - Priam is neither seen nor heard of any time during the story, and like the other spotpass paralogues his chapter only comes up right before the Endgame.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Well, his Sword Rank is better than his Axe rank, and he wields [[spoiler:Ragnell]], so...
* HeroicLineage: [[spoiler:Among other things, he loves to eat meat, just like Ike. Curiously, he has not inherited Aether, Ike's trademark skill, though he does have the 2 skills that make up Aether: Sol and Luna.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Before being recruited, he lead his own BadassCrew.
* LifeDrain: Sol.
* LightningBruiser: A physical variant. Starts with all stats (except magic and resistance) capped or close to capped depending on the difficulty. His modifiers lean him more towards a physical MightyGlacier though.
* MasterOfYourDomain: A major part of his training regime is harnessing and utilizing his LifeEnergy, or chi.
* MotorMouth: Get him on a subject he likes, and he'll ramble on and on.
** LargeHam: When he ''really'' gets into his rambles.
--> ''"Fail to perform maintenance, and it may well cost you... EVERYTHING!"''

* SecretCharacter: Even more so than the other [=SpotPass=] characters! [[spoiler: While the other Spotpass characters have roles in the main story, Priam is only found through the chapter he's recruited from, and his presence was only hinted by the fact that his voice actor was credited in the credits and that he could support with the Avatar and Male Morgan (if he is the father).]]
* ShroudedInMyth
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Meat, [[spoiler:just like Ike]].
