'''Fire Emblem: The Sword of Seals'''

The sixth game in the ''FireEmblem'' series, the first one in the [[FireEmblemElibe Elibe]] time, it was the first one for the GBA and [[NoExportForYou not released in the west]]. This game takes place chronologically after The Blazing Sword. Features an even larger playable cast than The Blazing Sword and was the first Fire Emblem to introduce the popular [[RelationshipValues support conversations]].

[[folder: Main characters]]

!!Roy

* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* KidAnova: Thany, Lilina, Sue, Lalum, Cecilia, Sophia...
* NiceGuy
* ObliviousToLove: Okay, so he ''does'' know Lilina since they were both kids so it may be a little weird for him to see her as more than his best friend at first, but he still has no real excuse in regards to the other girls.
* RedHeadedHero
* TheHero ''[[GuileHero and]]'' TheSmartGuy: For his young age and lack of experience, Roy ''is'' pretty cunning in regards to politics. I.e.: [[spoiler: he discovers almost by himself that Elphin was the missing Prince Mildain under a SpoonyBard disguise.]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: The very fact that Roy is promoted near the end of the game makes lots of people think of him is one of the worst lords in the Fire Emblem series.
** Although there is a few who think of him as {{Badass}} due to the fact that he can have up ''six potential wives'', the most that a lord can have in any Fire Emblem game.

* KnightInShiningArmour: To Lilina

->''"What...what impudence! Our army isn't so lenient that we would just take along some useless girl!"''

* HiddenDepths - JerkAssWoobie ([[spoiler: in her and Klein's A support, Clarine expresses fears that when she goes home, she'll just end up as "a doll who won't see the outer world". After speaking to her brother, she decides to become Mage General like Cecilia to avoid this.]])

'''Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword'''

The seventh game in the ''FireEmblem'' series, the second one in the [[FireEmblemElibe Elibe]] timeline, the first released in the West, and arguably the most popular of them all, ''FireEmblem: The Blazing Blade'' features a massive cast of heroes to cheer for, allies to make, [[TheWoobie Woobies]] to gush over, and villains to both [[WorthyOpponent understand]] and [[CompleteMonster be revolted by]].
----

[[folder: The Lords]]

!!Eliwood Pherae
The young son of Lord Elbert, Marquess Pherae, Eliwood grew up surrounded by the complex politics of the Lycian League. Under the watchful eye of his parents, OldRetainer Marcus and his father's close friends among the lords, he became an even-tempered and compassionate man, self-conscious and aware of the world despite his stable upbringing. He met Lyn during her travels and provided her with crucial political aid which enabled her to unite with her grandfather. When his father disappeared a year later, he chose to search him out with the aid of a few trusted soldiers - and subsequently discovered evidence of a terrible plot that threatened the stability of not only Elibe, but of the entire world.

In the sequel/prequel "The Sword Of Seals", he's the father of Roy, that game's protagonist. [[spoiler: His dead mom can be either Ninian, Fiora, or Lyndis.]]

* BadassNormal: He's never even been on the battlefield before, and yet can hold his own against enemies while ''still'' appearing graceful in combat.
* BlueEyes
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling The Old Woman Out]]: Not his own, but in what is probably his ''greatest'' display of Badassery, he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome calls out *Queen Hellene of Bern* on her exploitative treatment of her son Prince Zephiel, even though they require her aid]]. For what it's worth, Pent and Louise both agree with him.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood or NeutralGood
* DisappearedDad: The whole deal with him is kickstarted when Elbert disappears...
* EarlyBirdCameo: When he [[spoiler: rescues Ninian and then helps out Lyn]] in Lyn's Tale.
* FragileSpeedster
** LightningBruiser: If raised properly and/or the CPU doesn't fuck you up.
* FutureBadass: Becomes ruler of Pherae and a well-respected voice in the Lycian League
* TheHero
* HeroesPreferSwords
** RoyalRapier
* HeroicBSOD: Has two: one when [[spoiler: his father dies]], and another when [[spoiler: he's accidentally killed Ninian while she was in dragon form]]. To his everlasting credit, he does ''not'' allow his grief to consume him, and recovers quickly enough to rejoin the fight. In fact, in Hector's story mode, the chapter immediately following his first BSOD actually ''makes'' you use him to drive the point home. The man might be sensitive, but don't you ''dare'' accuse him of {{Wangst}}.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Hector
** HoYay: If you want more...
* HonourBeforeReason
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: When you can [[spoiler: stare down a ruthless mass murderer - one who has NoEmpathy for others; who has mocked you for accidentally killing a young girl you grew close to/fell in love with; and who actively shoot down his former best friend by scoffing at the importance of friendship - and ''still'' declare that you do not hate him for what he's done, but pity him instead]], then you ''know'' you're at least on the ''way'' towards this trope.
* KnightInShiningArmour: He seems to be one in the early stages of the game (though a less naive one than usual). As he bears witness to the more ruthless aspects of humanity during his journey, however, he becomes more of a ...
** KnightInSourArmour, instead. He doesn't go to the extreme, thankfully.
* NiceGuy
* RedHeadedHero
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Hector.
* ReluctantWarrior: He'll fight for the sake of justice and peace, but he doesn't particularly enjoy it - especially when innocents get involved in the "foolish politics" of nobles.
* [[spoiler: RescueRomance: if he has an A Support with Ninian]].
* RousseauWasRight: He seems to believe this, even after meeting many evil or unstable people on his journey. [[spoiler: At the end of the game he expresses his belief - towards the more [[JadeColouredGlasses jaded Nils and Ninian]] - that the day will eventually come when humans and dragons can together live in peace once more]].
* SayMyName
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The sensitive guy to Hector's more manly man.
* TheScrappy: A number of people consider him this, resulting in poor treatment within the fandom. As he doesn't have any particularly negative qualities, it's most likely a result of him being a 'less interesting' character than Hector and Lyn (and by extension, a good portion of the playable and supporting cast). That, and bcause his stats aren't spectacular. For the remainder of the fandom, he's considered a decent character in his own right and nonetheless has his fans.
* TenderTears
* TheWisePrince: A textbook example.
* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Oh, FanDumb...

!!Hector Ostia

The third lord of the group and younger brother to Uther, the Marquess of Ostia. His parents died of illness when he was a young boy, so his brother is more of a father figure to him. Hector is restless, hot-blooded, and loyal to a fault; thus, as soon as he hears word about Elbert's disappearance, he appeals to Uther and tells him to do something about it. When Uther refuses, he and the spy Matthew run away from the castle, and are ambushed by the Black Fang; once that's dealt with, they're joined by the knight Oswin and the cleric Serra, and Hector fully throws himself in the huge mess that's about to happen.


In the sequel/prequel "The Sword Of Seals", he's the leader of the Lycian Aliiance and the father of MagicalGirl Lilina. [[spoiler: Her dead mom can be either Lyndis, Florina, or Farina.]]

* AnAxeToGrind
* {{Badass}}: And HOW.
* BadassBeard: In the WhereAretheyNowEpilogue
* BigBrotherInstinct: Acts as one towards Nils.
* TheBigGuy
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood
* EnsembleDarkhorse: He's a main character, but still ... Well, the creators claim that he's one of the series' most popular characters, prompting them to model Ike in "Path of Radiance" off him (in terms of both personality and relative appearance). He's certainly the most popular of the Lords. Probably helps that he has such a complex personality and is seen as more intriguing that the more straight-good Eliwood and Lyn (though they also have character flaws).
* {{Expy}}: Once you look into it, you'll realize he has a lot of similarities to Lex from the 4th game. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Blue hair]]? check. AnAxeToGrind? check. HotBlooded? check. LeeroyJenkins? check.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Him and Eliwood.
* HotBlooded
* KnightInSourArmour: He knows the world's a pretty messed-up place, but damn if he's going to stand by idly and let terrible things just happen!
* LeeroyJenkins: Hector isn't big on the whole planning thing most of the time, but not to the point of endangering the rest of the group.
** Lampshaded by Athos: "Your recklessness may one day be your undoing..."
* MightyGlacier: If the CPU screws you up.
** LightningBruiser: If it doesn't.
* OverprotectiveDad: Read his and Eli's B support and you'll know why. [[spoiler: Sadly, doesn't prevent his death by Zephiel in Fuuin. his FamousLastWords are a plea for Roy to help Lilina out.]]
* PapaWolf: Never ''ever'' slight one of his friends. And this doesn't only extend to Eliwood or Lyn, either. After all, he straightforwardly tells [[spoiler: Jaffar]] that he hasn't forgiven his killing of [[spoiler: Leila]], and says he'll kill him with his own hands if he steps out of line.
* ParentalAbandonment: His parents died of tuberculosis when he was a child, so his brother became a surrogate parent to him. [[spoiler: Uther later dies from the same illness]].
* PetTheDog: Decides to give Nils a ride on his shoulders when he sees the boy struggling to get through Nabata. Though the boy was sort of reluctant and surprised, remember that Hector is wearing loud, heavy, ''sweaty'' armour in the desert, and giving someone a piggyback is ''not'' going to make movement easier.
* PrecisionFStrike: Never lets loose any major swear words, but he curses quiet a lot in the story and is pretty creative with insults.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Eliwood, Oswin ''and'' Uther.
* SiblingYinYang: Hector is HotBlooded, his older brother Uther is stoic and snarky.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The manly man to Eliwood's sensitive guy.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Nergal himself admits Hector's existence ruined his plans, just by helping Eliwood.
* VitriolicBestBuds: If him and Lyn aren't romantically inclined, then they are definitely this - later in the story they seem to regard their arguments as a game.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Lyndis "Lyn" Caelin

Daughter of Madelyn, princess of Caelin, and Hassan, chief of the nomadic Lorca tribe, Lyn grew up without a care in the world on the plains of her father's homeland, Sacae. All of that changed when her home was pillaged by a brutal group of bandits, the Taliver, who left fewer than ten people alive. Forced to survive on her own, Lyn's life changes for the better when she comes across a [[NonEntityGeneral certain strategist]], and before she knows it she is caught up in a game of war and political intrigue once she learns of her royal heritage. A life of ease as the last remaining heir of the aging Marquess of Caelin awaits her... if she can survive the ambitions of her EvilUncle, Lord, Lundgren, that is!

* ActionGirl
* {{Badass}}
* {{BFS}}: The Sol Katti, her ultimate weapon.
* {{Bokukko}}
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Lycian, half-Sacaean.
* CaptainObvious: Why yes, my dear girl, 1000 years ''is'' a very long time!
* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood.
* TheChosenOne: At least when it comes to sacred swords…
* ForcedTutorial: Her entire "claim her inheritance" quest was created out of wholecloth to explain the game to the Western market. Veteran Japanese fans were ''not'' amused.
* FragileSpeedster: Can end up as this, depending on how good the RandomNumberGod is to you.
* TheHero (in her quest), TheLancer (in Eliwood's)
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Florina, if there's no romance involved.
** LesYay: With Florina, if you like them as a couple.
* HotAmazon
* HotChickWithASword
* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Girl]]
* RebelliousPrincess: Somewhat. She does make an effort to please the Caelin court but ultimately can't let go of her Sacaen instincts.
* RescueRomance: If you pair her and Rath.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Wants to massacre the malicious Taliver bandits in retribution for the deaths of her family and fellow tribespeople. [[spoiler: In her A Support with Wallace, he reveals he's already done this so that she won't have to, and urges her to be happy they are dead, even if she didn't kill them personally]].
* SlapSlapKiss: Her relationship with Hector, which can evolve into romance if she has an A Support with him.
* StoicWoobie: Refuses to cry even when she wants to.
** Actually, there ''are'' times when poor Lyn sheds TenderTears, [[IronWoobie and ALL of them are very justified.]] First, when she tells Mark her experiences, later stopping herself and vowing to not do so. Second, when [[spoiler: she meets Hausen just as he's about to succumb to DeathByDespair]]. Third, in Hector's route, when [[spoiler: she explains her tragic backstory to him, telling him the massacre of the Lorca in detail]]. And lastly, also in Hector's route, [[spoiler: when [[HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim she offers to cry instead of him]] because of Uther's demise.]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Florina and Ninian's Girly Girls.
* VitriolicBestBuds: If her and Hector aren't romantically inclined, then they are definitely this - later in the story they seem to regard their arguments as a game.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: what Wallace says, word by word, upon seeing her. Followed by this:
--> '''Wallace''': I've been a knight for 30 years, and there's one thing I learned. A person with eyes as bright and true as yours is no deceiver.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dark green hair.

[[folder: Characters Introduced During Lyn's Story]]

!!Sain
->''“May I have the pleasure of your name? Or better yet, your company!”''
-->-- '''Sain'''

The first and undeniably the oddest person Lyn meets on her journey, Sain is a gallant cavalier in service to House Caelin, full of "passion and fire," beloved of the populace who sends women swooning... or so he would have you believe. In reality, he amounts to little more than a skirt-chaser. Considered lazy and foolish by his comrades in Caelin's knights, Sain desperately ''wants'' to be a hero (mostly so he can get chicks), it’s just that he isn’t very good at it, at least at first.

* TheBigGuy: Being the most physically powerful of Lyn's core group of five, he fits this role best in "Lyndis' Legions"
* BladeOnAStick: It is, as we all know, the most heroic of ''all'' weapons.
* ButtMonkey: To ''the game engine itself''. He spends a good slice of the tutorial screwing up, so that Kent can instruct the player on what ''not'' to do.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood. He's not shy about bitching out those who slight Lyn or Hausen, and his solo ending says that he becomes a freelance knight upon Hausen's death and Lyn leaving Caelin while Kent stays as its steward.
* ChivalrousPervert: MostTriumphantExample? Maybe!
* CrazyAwesome
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: A good percentage of his dialogue.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kent.
** HoYay: If you like 'em as more, ladies.
* IncomingHam: Often heard before he's seen, followed by his chat head dashing into view.
* KnightInShiningArmor: He tries, bless him..
* MatchmakerCrush: His and Kent's B support suggests strongly that he has feelings for Lyn too, but would rather let Kent take the lead.
-->'''Sain:''' Oh, get over it! You can admit it, can't you?! I mean, she is beautiful, and she is kind... How could anyone not have feelings for her? (...) But I guess I will have to let you take the lead here, since that is truly the knightly thing to do for one's partner...
* MrExposition: He and Kent know more than a little about Caelin politics.
* LargeHam
* ShooOutTheClowns: Declines in importance as the game increases in seriousness, to the point that, as far as the plot is concerned, he's almost a non-entity following the DiscOneFinalBoss.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Kent, again.
* TheWoobie: His supports with Rebecca and Priscilla give some insight into the psyche of a guy like him. [[DeconstructedTrope It's not pretty.]]

!!Kent
->''“Our territory may be small, but our knights are among the bravest!”''
-->-- '''Kent''' to '''Heath''' in a support conversation

San's associate, who evidently does the thinking for both of them, Kent is another of the knights sent by Caelin to retrieve Lyn. Kent has a good head on his shoulders and a fair knowledge of battle tactics, which he will gladly explain to you during the ForcedTutorial. He is totally devoted to Lyn's service, something that may simply be duty or may be, as Sain suspects, a sign of attraction.

* BodyguardCrush: Well, Sain says so, at least.
** Confirmed if he and Lyn get an A support, since she sets off to Sacae with him after they leave Caelin in Hector's care.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood.
* FanPreferredCouple: A good deal of people like to ship him with Lyn, though that's not to say Fiora doesn't have her supporters, either.
* TheGenericGuy: Outside his support conversations at least, his main personality trait is essentially "not Sain."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sain.
** HoYay: If you want them as more.
* KnightInShiningArmor: And how.
* TheLancer: In Lyn's core group, though he's less prone to being argumentative than most Lancers (tending to fight with TheBigGuy instead).
* TheMario: The most balanced of all of the mounted units, but the only one that doesn't excel in anything, either.
* MrExposition: Through the fourth wall!
* TheStoic: To a fault. Sain lampshades it once when he comments that Kent will age too quickly considering how much he worries.
** {{Kuudere}}: Comes as this with Lyn, and later with Fiora.

!!Florina
->''“W-Well, what was I supposed to do? All those bees came flying out at me! I was so frightened...”''
-->-- '''Florina''' to '''Lyn''' in a support conversation

A childhood friend of Lyn's from Ilia. The first Pegasus Knight to join the group, she pledges her support to Lyn due to their friendship. After helping her against Lundgren, she stays with Lyn until Nergal rises up. As Castle Caelin is under attack, Florina manages to escape and reach for Eliwood's crew.

* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood
* TheChick: In Lyn's core five - doesn't stop her from being an efficient fighter though.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Seem rather intimidated by them, [[CharacterDevelopment at first]]. Even the choice of the Tactician's gender will influence her dialogue with him/her.
** Heck, the RunningGag is so strong that her three supports with Hector are about Florina trying to thank him for helping her out and not being able to spit it out.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: If she's not shipped with Lyn, then this is how their relationship is interpreted.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The 'tiny girl' half with Hector, if they are shipped.
* LesYay: One of her common ships is with Lyn, and they have a dual ending that can be seen very easily as Florina becoming her VictoriousChildhoodFriend if you like the couple.
** She has RomanticTwoGirlFriendship vibes with Serra and/or Nino, too.
* LoveInterest: She may become one of Hector's, and is her other common ship.
* {{Moe}}: Oh so much
* MoeCouplet: Her supports with Lyn, Serra, and Nino not only multiply her own {{Moe}}, they help share it with the other girl. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming The results are often spectacular.]]
* PluckyGirl
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Lyn, Serra, and Nino.
* ShrinkingViolet: Mostly because she's been [[RaisedByDudes raised by ladies]] and the Pegasi Knight units are all-female squads for obvious reasons.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Lyn's Tomboy.
** And Farina's and Fiora's, too.
* WeaponOfChoice
** BladeOnAStick: Default for Pegasi Knights.
** HotChickWithASword: Upgraded to one upon becoming a Falcon Knight.

!!Wil
->''Rath: “But… Wil… You are still… strange.”''
->''Wil: “Huh? W-Why? Nonsense. I’m normal! I might as well be Normal Archer number three!”''
->''Rath: “…Number three? Why three?”''
->''Wil: “Well… No reason, I guess. It just seemed…pretty normal.”''
-->-- '''Wil''' and '''Rath''' in a support conversation

A young archer from Pherae, he left his village a few years ago to earn his fortune. Met Lyn in a squabble with some bandits in Bern, and after defeating them he joined her retinue - even coining the name 'Lyndis' Legions'. [[spoiler: He's the childhood friend of Rebecca and her brother Dan, the latter of whom he left with before they were separated.]]

* TheArcher
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Develops into one in his supports with Raven.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood
* TheDitz: Especially emphasised in his supports with Raven, though it may just be that he's contrasted with one of the game's most unhappy characters.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Some of his Supports reveal he's quite unsure of himself and really lacking confidence. Nonetheless this also gives him vibes of ...
** TheDeterminator: In his Supports with Rath, he strives to learn to shoot horseback despite struggling to do so. In his Supports with Wallace, he strives to train despite the immense regimen the former General puts him through (it also gives him a sense for his own limits.
* HoYay: With Rath, in their Supports. [[YourMileageMayVary For some]], anyway.
* [[spoiler: MyGreatestFailure: He's so ashamed of having left his family without warning and not even fulfilling his motivations for doing so, that he hasn't made contact with them in five years - even though he told Lyn he'd send word. Finally does so with some persuasion from Lyn, in their A Support]].
* NiceGuy: One of the most stable and all-around 'normal' characters in the game. He's even implied to get along fairly well with Florina, even though they don't exactly fall on the right end of the Weapon's spectrum ...
* SempaiKouhai: Tries to develop this with Raven. It doesn't work.
* TheSmartGuy: He's pretty world-wise, anyway, and so sort of fits this role in Lyn's group.
* [[spoiler: VictoriousChildhoodFriend: With Rebecca, if they get an A Support]].
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Rebecca calls him out for leaving his home behind and never making contact with her or his family. It works]].
** Also called out by Lyn on that.

!!Dorcas
A quiet but kind man from Bern, who joins a band of brigands to make money for his IllGirl wife, Natalie. Has a change of heart after meeting Lyn and joins her group. In Eliwood's story, he joins early on, still making money to help his wife.

* AnAxeToGrind
* TheBigGuy: In the early stages of both Lyn and Eliwood's stories.
* CharacterAlignment: Neutral Good
* GentleGiant
* HeelFaceTurn
* HonourBeforeReason: In his Supports with [[spoiler: Farina, he insists on making enough money to pay her back for her charity, even those she's initially willing to let him be]].
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Implied, with his wife Natalie.
* IWillProtectHer: Builds his entire character around this trope.
* {{Narm}}: Many people will admit to cracking up when they first heard his name.
* NiceGuy
* PapaWolf: Is initially willing to do anything, no matter how bad, to help his wife. Lyn only snaps him out of it by persuading him that his wife would not forgive him for it. Even then, he [[spoiler: declines an offer by Oswin to join Ostia's knights, stating that he fights only for his wife.]]
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Bartre's Manly Man.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Him and Bartre.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: At first - he almost became a KnightTemplar over it. Lyn managed to talk him out of it, though.

!!Serra
A loud, seemingly obnoxious priestess in service to Ostia who hired Erk to be her escort. They met Lyn and joined her party after dealing with a band of bandits near the Bern border. She joins Eliwood's party by extension of joining Hector on his quest first. Although she seems intolerable on the outside, she has pains within that she hides from the world ...

* [[spoiler: BrokenBird]]
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood
* CryCute: Many of her A supports involve her breaking down in tears [[TearJerker and making us cry with her]]
* [[spoiler: FallenPrincess: If the Etrurian parents who abandoned her in a convent when she was a little girl ''were'' noblemen from a fallen clan.]]
* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: If paired up with the MightyGlacier Oswin.
** Doubles as MayDecemberRomance because she's 16 and he's in his 30's.
* JerkassWoobie: Haughty, childish, blunt... and very pitiful once you know her backstory.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Her Supports with Lucius cement her status as this.
** Also her supports with Florina, where she helps her open up.
* {{Nakama}}: Her relationship with Hector, as [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming seen in their A Support]].
* OddFriendship: Despite her noisy and boisterous ways, Serra can become good friends with Florina, to the point of RomanticTwoGirlFriendship.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[FreudianExcuse It causes her a lot of angst and is the source her irritable personality.]]
* RoseHairedGirl
* TheScrappy: Had something of a HateDom in the early years, though it has since calmed down.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: For those who get certain supports, she becomes a ''much'' more likeable character once her past is revealed. Especially her supports with [[TearJerker Hector, Oswin and Lucius]]...
* ShipperOnDeck: Her supports with Sain show her as vying for a LoveTriangle between Hector, Eliwood and Lyndis.
* StaffChick
** MagicalGirlWarrior
* TedBaxter: Acts like one, but it's a bit more complicated than that.
** StepfordSmiler: A type A. She appears cheery and bitchy, but is more insecure than she'd like you to know.
* {{Tsundere}}: Particularly towards Erk and Matthew.
* WellDoneSonGuy: The person whose approval she most desperately yearns for is Oswin. In their B support, when he harshly scolds her, her self-esteem is shattered and it takes her almost their whole A support to regain it.
--> '''Serra''': ...I want to talk to you, but... all you ever do is tell me everything I'm doing wrong... You don't like anything I do, right? So... So... ... ... ... ... ......sniff...
* WellExcuseMePrincess
* TheWoobie

!!Erk
A young studying mage, the only student of the Mage General of Etruria, Lord Pent. First appears as Serra's escort, helping Lyn's party thereafter. While escorting Priscilla, they end up stuck in Laus due to its corrupt Marquess being infatuated with his employer. He and Priscilla join Eliwood's party in exchange for their assistance, also hoping that it may help her in finding her missing family. He's often quite uptight, but mellows around people he's closer towards.

* BodyguardCrush: Sort of inverted example with Priscilla, though he eventually catches on as well.
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Serra annoys him a lot, but he likes her a lot more than he lets on.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Lord]]
* FanPreferredCouple: With Priscilla. It helps that [[spoiler: theirs is Priscilla's ''only'' happy romantic ending.]]
* {{Kuudere}}: A male varient
* ParentalSubstitute: Pent and Louise are essentially his adoptive parents, and they treat him as such. Especially Louise, who actively dotes over him.
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Serra is particularly good at pushing his buttons.
* WellDoneSonGuy: To Pent, oh God.

!!Rath
The son of Dayan, tribal leader of the Kutolah Tribe in Sacae. He was [[spoiler: sent away from his tribe as a child due to a prophecy stating that he would play an important role in saving the world]]. Eventually became Captain of the Palace Guard at Araphen, where he met Lyn during a attack by Lundgren. He joined her party after witnessing the extent of his liege lord's bigotry, and disappeared after her defeat of Lundgren - before re-emerging as a mercenary and rejoining the group on her behalf.

* TheArcher
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[spoiler: When his tribe's diviner saw a dark omen in the stars, Rath, as the Chiefton's son, was required to leave so that he would help prevent it coming to pass. Needless to say, he does.]].
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood --> NeutralGood
* TheChiefsDaughter: Genderflipped
* DefectorFromDecadence: Of a sort - he served as Captain of the Guard at Araphen until he realised his liege-lord would never see Sacaens as equals
* [[spoiler: ParentalAbandonment: He was sent out of his tribe - before he was even ''four'' - because as the Chiefton's son he had a duty to prevent the world's destruction]].
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* RescueRomance: With Lyn, if they have an A Support
* SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler: If Rath stays in the main party until the story's end, he returns to his tribe to recieve a warm welcome from his fellow tribemen, particularly his father]].
* TheStoic
** {{Kuudere}}: Towards Lyn in particular. Also shows his ''dere'' side to [[HoYay Will, in their Supports]].


!!Matthew

A mischievous and sly young man, good at catching info and stealing things. He's actually one of the top spies of Ostia, who first aids Lyndis and tells his lords about what happened, then pledges his loyalty to Hector and joins him in his quest.

* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood
* TheCombatPragmatist: Much to Guy's irritation, Matthew accepted a challenge and then ambushed Guy while he was asleep to teach him that he won't last long if he expects people in war to fight fair.
* FragileSpeedster: As with all thieves.
** MagikarpPower: If you're patient...
* [[spoiler: ILetGwenStacyDie]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity
* {{Revenge}}: A huge theme in his supports, specially those with Jaffar... [[spoiler: the guy who killed his girlfriend Leila.]]
* {{Trickster}}: Specially obvious in his supports with Hector.
* TheWoobie: You'll ''really'' want to hug him once [[spoiler: you learn what happened to Leila.]]

!!Lucius

A quiet, kind, but also very stubborn monk from the Saint Elimine Order, whom we meet as he joins Lyundis's group after seeing Nils being mistreated by scared townspeople. Later we meet him again as the travel companion of a troubled man named Raven.

* {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheCutie: His backstory, in which [[spoiler: his dad dies in front of him, his IllGirl mom dies few later, he's sent to an OrphanageOfFear and is bullied there, then is employed by the Cornwells but loses them too and can only watch as Raymond is consumed by bitterness...]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* {{Determinator}}: He manages to pull through all the crap life has thrown at him, and his B support with Raven is about [[spoiler: finally calling him out on his purposes and refusing to take it anymore. So much that Raven actually has to drop his JerkAss attitude and pretty much apologize to him for pushing him away.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: AND HOLY SHIT HOW.
** DroppedABridgetOnHim: Or better said, on Serra.
* HoYay: With Raven, so much.
* GayOption: Generally considered to serve as one for Raven. Implied to have a straight option with Serra based on their A support, but no special ending.
* GlassCannon: Likely to end up as this, since his Defense and HP tend to be low while his Magic and Skill stand out.
* TheWoobie: His backstory makes him this. So much.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Male example.

!!Nils

A young and cute ministrel who works as a travelling performer with his beautiful older sister, Ninian. They seem to have ''really'' lousy luck, however, as a mysterious group is hell-bent into capturing them for Gods-know-what purposes. After they rescue Ninian, they stay with the group until Lyndis reclaims her place in Caelin, then they leave quietly... and are soon back to their runaway status, due to their mysterious past and link to the group, named Black Fang.

[[spoiler: Said past is what follows: Nils and Ninian are the offspring of a dragon woman and a human man. During The Scouring, their mother Aenir was taken away and their dad went missing in search of her, so they crossed the Dragons's Gate with their people. However, they were summoned back by a mysterious man - Nergal, the lead of the organization that wants them.]]

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* CuteShotaroBoy
** [[spoiler: ReallySevenHundredYearsOld]]
* BreakTheCutie
* DistressedDude: Not his fault, he's just a kid [[spoiler: and his dragon energy was all sapped away when he and his sister Ninian came to this world.]]
* FragileSpeedster: His resistence to direct hits isn't exactly the best. On the other hand, he's got such high Speed and Luck that it's VERY hard to hit him.
* [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrids (His and Ninian's mom was Aenir, a dragon woman. Their dad was a human shaman... Nergal.]]
* [[spoiler: IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight (to the BrainwashedAndCrazy Ninian. Easily the boy's CrowningMomentOfAwesome)]]
* IllBoy: In ''Kinship's Bond'', he has a huge seizure and must be protected.
* [[spoiler: [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Shaman's Cute Son.]] ]]
* SpoonyBard: His MagicMusic lets you have an extra turn.
** StatusBuff: Once he [[spoiler: replaces Ninian]], he gets to use some spiffy rings to enhance your statuses.
* TheWoobie: Poor, ''poor'' kid.

!!Wallace

A loud, brash, and very strong knight who was the long-time commander of the Caelin Knights. He retired some time ago to work on his farm, but Lundgren tried to rope him into serving him and killing Lyn. Upon meeting her, though, he decides to do the right thing and stay with her crew...

* TheBigGuy
* BadassBoast: "AHAHAHAHAHA! Look! A giant walks among you! Come on! Break your weapons against me!"
* BaldOfAwesome
* BloodKnight: A heroic version.
* BoisterousBruiser
* CallToAgriculture
* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood, as seen in his supports with Lyn and Kent. According to these convos he used to be LawfulGood, until [[spoiler: he chose to let Madelyn elope with Hassar rather than tearing both of their hearts by forcibly taking her back to Caelin.]]
* FourStarBadass
* LargeHam
* LightningBruiser
* NoSenseOfDirection
* RetiredBadass: Had left the Caelin military to live peacefully in the countryside, then joined Lyn's group.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Why he's more Neutral than Lawful, but undeniably Good.
* TenMinuteRetirement: Lyn's actions called him back into service, and he found then that he still enjoyed fighting. He spent another year looking for fights before he finally settled down for good after Nergal's defeat.
* TookALevelInBadass: According to his supports with [[spoiler: Renault]], he was a CuteShotaroBoy as a kid and even bullied because of that. And 30 years later, he's a HUGE Badass.
* ThreeAmigos: With [[spoiler: Lyn's parents, in his backstory]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: His supports with [[spoiler: Renault]] say he's just 40! Really!

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Pathologically so.

* {{Shorttank}}
* TeamChef [[ChefOfIron Of Iron]]

!!Bartre

* AnAxeToGrind
* BoisterousBruiser
* BookDumb
* CharacterExaggeration: Has something of a reputation for it in fanfiction, unfortunately - while Bartre's not the brightest character, he's not as stupid as some people would [[FlanderiSation make him out to be]]. It's pretty jarring to see him unable to speak in complete sentences when it's clear that he's able to do so.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Him and Dorcas
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LoveAtFirstPunch: With Karla.
* TheRedBaron: "Bartre the Brave".

* MightyGlacier
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Is pretty flustered when Serra cries in front of him, and also dislikes it when Hector calls him "Old Man"
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler: Was trusted by Uther to keep his failing health and eventual death a secret from Hector until after the conflict was over. It didn't take, though he kept it for quite a while - and it took Hector a few chapters to forgive him for it]].
** His support with [[spoiler: Priscilla]] also reveals he was also trusted with information regarding [[spoiler: the deaths of Marquess Cornwell and his wife]], including that [[spoiler:they were DrivenToSuicide, and not slaughtered by Ostia for their land as Raven believes.]]
* TeamDad: More so in Hector's path.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: And how.

!!Guy

* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood
* TheDulcineaEffect: He tells [[spoiler: Priscilla]] that he can't help worry for a girl when she needs a helping hand.
--> '''Guy:''' When I see a woman in need, I just want to help. That’s the way we are, back in Sacae!
* [[spoiler: FridgeHorror: In his supports with Karel, he says they'll have one last fight after everything is over, and Guy's ending says that he went on to be known as the Saint Of Swords. But in ''Fuuin'', Karel appears, clearly changed by some dramatic event...and carrying Guy's title... OUCH!]]
* GlassCannon: Due to his low defense... look at him wrong and he falls dead. But if he looks at ''you'' wrong, expect a Critical and for ''you'' to fall dead.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Matthew
* {{Keet}}: A more subdued version.
* OddFriendship: He becomes friends with Rath in their supports, despite his upbeat nature contrasting massively with Rath's stoicism. Also, he's scared of horses.

!!Merlinus

* ButtMonkey
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* DistressedDude
* LargeHam: To a degree, as whenever he cries he's ''very'' expressive.

!!Lady Priscilla of Carleon [[spoiler: Alias Lady Priscilla of Cornwell.]]

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise: Before leaving home with the Carleons as a little girl, her brother Raymond gave her this. Since she hero-worships him, she intended to make him fulfill it.
** BrotherSisterIncest: More straight-up example in the Elibe saga.
* DamselInDistress: In the beginning, she and Erk were locked in a Laus village when she turned Darin's marriage proposal down. Erk manages to escape and you can recruit him with Serra, then you have to go down to the village to get her.
** BadassDamsel: She kept turning the proposals down once and again, and as soon as you meet her she immediately offers to use her staves handling skills to help the group in exchange for safety.
* DieForOurShip ''and'' RealWomenNeverWearDresses: A girly girl? A female KidAnova? She wanted to marry her brother and still kinda wants so? OMG HOW DARE SHE.
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: A white feather
* GreenEyedRedhead
* LeprechaunColourScheme

** MagicalGirlWarrior: When promoted to Valkyrie.
* TheOjou: Sweet, soft-spoken, polite, level-headed...
** [[spoiler: FallenPrincess (the Cornwell clan was destituted and destroyed around the time she was adopted by the Carleons.]]
** StarCrossedLovers: All the guys that develop crushes on her have to leave her because of her ultra high status. [[spoiler: Except for Erk, who bypasses it thanks to his links to Pent and Louise]]
* PluckyGirl: Very, ''very'' stubborn when an idea gets into her head.
--> [[spoiler: '''Raven''' ]]: You...were always like this, though, weren’t you? So gentle at most times, until you got an idea in your head -- then you wouldn’t budge, no matter what people said.
* SpoiledSweet: Really hates it when people avoid her because of her status, and insists to be treated like a normal person.
--> '''Priscilla ''' (to [[spoiler: Heath]]): You promised! You said you’d come visit me whenever you were hurt! Are you someone who so easily breaks a promise? Claiming you did not know my rank is no excuse! What...What about my feelings...? ...
* TenderTears
* WomanInWhite
* TheWoobie: The poor girl is a ''magnet'' for melancholy.

!!Raven [[spoiler: alias Lord Raymond of Cornwell]]

* {{Badass}}
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticNeutral --> ChaoticGood
* DeadpanSnarker

* KnightInSourArmor
* JerkAss --> JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[spoiler: LongLostSibling: To Priscilla]]
* NotInThisForYourRevolution

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* DarkIsNotEvil
* [[DeadLittleSister Dead Three Older Brothers]]: They're not ''dead'', but well... see FateWorseThanDeath.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: To a lesser extent than some, but Canas is still remembered fondly by many fans of the game for his atypical personality and usefulness on the battlefield.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Canas has lost most of his family to the practice of dark magic: His older brothers have all been rendered {{EmptyShell}}s by going too far into it.
* GameBreaker: On his own, he's a powerful mage. But since he's the only character besides Athos that can use the devastatingly powerful Luna Tome...
* [[spoiler: [[HotDad Hot]] DisappearedDad]]
* HighClassGlass
* InsistentTerminology: One of the few who points out that it's ''ancient'' magic, thank you very much.

* [[spoiler: [[LongLostRelative Nino, I think I'm your uncle]].]]
* NiceGuy

!!Dart

* BoisterousBruiser: His introduction before joining the group says all!
--> "I'm Dart! Leader of Captain Fargus's Suicide Squad! (...) Now who do you want me to take care of?!"
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood
* HotBlooded
* GlassCannon: Shitty defense and magic resistence, alongside absurdly high strength and crit ratio. Promote him and give him nice supports, and he becomes a OneManArmy.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Fargus, his Captain and boss.
* [[spoiler: LongLostSibling: To Rebecca.]]
* {{Pirate}}: Type 2
* [[spoiler: TraumaGuidedAmnesia]]

!!Fiora

* ActionGirl
* BigSisterInstinct: Is a borderline MyBelovedSmother to her baby sister Florina.
* BirdsOfAFeather: One of Kent's two love interests, and noted by fans and her sisters to be almost exactly like him in personality.
** OppositesAttract: On the other hand, Fiora can also be one of the few women Sain gets together with for real.
* BladeOnAStick
** HotChickWithASword: Upon promotion
* BrokenBird: Due to her guilt upon losing her wingmates and her bad relationship with Farina. She gets better, fortunately.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* LadyOfWar
* FailureKnight: Lost all of her wingmates in a mission, then became a borderline DeathSeeker. Florina manges to talk her out, though she still feels guilty; Pent and Eliwood have to reassure her about it.

* BiTheWay: Possibly, if his supports with Heath are an indication
** Let's not forget what he says to [[spoiler: Morph!Lloyd]]:
--> '''Legault''': "Huh, even as a monster, you are a handsome one, [[spoiler: Lloyd]]"
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral --> ChaoticGood
* DeadpanSnarker: If he's not bisexual as noted above, then he's ''very'' sarcastic.
--> '''Legault:''' So now I’m your new hobby, is that it? You falling for me?
--> '''Matthew:''' I’m not in the mood for your jokes.
* [[spoiler: DefectorFromDecadence: Was a witness to the Black Fang's downfall ''and'' was very unhappy after being forced to ShootTheDog, thus he decided to loot them and run away. That's when you find it and get him.]]
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* [[spoiler: ShootTheDog: In his supports with Matthew, he tells him about having to kill a Black Fang ActionGirl named Aesha when she was injured and crippled. That crossed his GodzillaThreshold, and soon he left the Fang.]]
* StarCrossedLovers: If he supports up with Isadora, it's mentioned in their ending that their next meeting after the war was as enemies.
* StoicWoobie: He looks like an easygoing dude, but his supports with people like Matthew, Jaffar, Isadora and Nino give a huge insight on the broken man he is underneath.
* TroubledButCute

!!Ninian

** SpoonyBard: When she fully joins in, her dances lets you have an extra turn.
*** StatusBuff: She also gets to use some spiffy rings to enhance your statuses.
* FragileSpeedster: Her resistence to direct hits isn't exactly the best. On the other hand, she's got such high Speed and Luck that it's VERY hard to hit her.
* [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrids (Her and Nils's mom was Aenir, a dragon woman. Their dad was a human shaman... Nergal.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice (Telling Nergal "TakeMeInstead!" to protect Nils equals as this because of the ''fatal'' consequences.)]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Blames herself because of [[spoiler: Elbert's death]], and the fact that she's [[spoiler: half dragon ''and'' has a crush on Elbert's son]] doesn't help either.
* [[spoiler: [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Shaman's Beautiful Daughter.]] ]]
* MeaningfulName: "Ninian" is one of the most popular names given to the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian myths (Others being "Vivian" and "Nimue").
* MysteriousWaif

* PromotionToParent: In regards to Nils, since [[spoiler: their dragon mom was kidnapped and never heard of again, and their human dad is... [[BigBad well]]...]]

!!Heath

* MoneyDearBoy: Her main interest is to have lots of bucks [[spoiler: to pay for the debt Fiora got because of her.]]
* OppositesAttract: While two of her endings put her with more HotBlooded guys, she can also end up with Kent...even though Kent is almost exactly like the big sister she just can't seem to get along with despite her best efforts.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Kent, Dart and Hector.

!!Pent

* BattleCouple ''and'' HappilyMarried: To Louise
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* ModestRoyalty: Upon meeting the tactician, he'll immediately tell them to not care for his status as the Mage General of Etruria.
* OneManArmy: On "The Living Legend", Pent appears as an NPC and fights the enemies on the map. If left to his own devices, Pent will ''demolish'' everything in his way, including the bosses. He's still good when he joins you for real too.

* HeroicSacrifice: Was not only willing to get himself killed to let Nino escape from the Black Fang, but [[spoiler: when Matthew (falsely) tells him that he's got Nino as a hostage, he decides to let him go through his {{Revenge}} for Leila if it meant Nino would be safe. Matt ultimately backs off.]]
* {{Kuudere}}: Thanks to Nino.
* IWillProtectHer: For Nino, he will die and kill. Lampshaded by Legault and himself:
-->'''Legault:''' You’ve gotten soft, Angel of Death. If someone held Nino hostage, you’d throw down your sword. You were the strongest assassin around. Now, you have a fatal chink in your armor. You’ve become human, but that makes you less perfect. Someday...you’ll die. No doubt trying to protect the girl.

!!Renault

* TheAtoner
* BadassGrandpa

* [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Grandpa What Massive Hotness You Have]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler: the death of his partner and best friend pushed him over the edge.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Hates himself throughly for all of his terrible sins, like [[spoiler: having killed Lucius's dad and collaborating with Nergal's research.]]
* [[spoiler: ReallySevenhundredYearsOld]]
* [[spoiler: StarCrossedLovers: With Isadora, if they A support. Their paired ending says that she left knighthood and became an Elimine cleric while searching for him.]]
* TierInducedScrappy: People dislike how "weak" the character is, given that his magic stat is astoundingly low compared to Serra or Lucius's by that point in the game. His equipment is useful, though.

!!Athos

* BadassGrandpa: Most powerful magic user in the game, and [[spoiler: more than 1000 years old as one of the two surviving heroes of the legends.]]
* [[spoiler: CainAndAbel (with Negal.)]]

* [[spoiler: DiedInYourArmsTonight (Hector's)]]
* WizardBeard: A truly impressive one.

!!Mark

!!Nergal
->''“I am who I am. The pain of others, I do not feel. The sorrow of others does not touch me. Death feeds me. Death pleases me. I am the essence I consume. You fools will become corpses here, because I wish it to be.”''
-->-- '''Nergal'''

This [[EvilSorcerer Dark Druid]] is the ''de facto'' head of the Black Fang, the [[TheManBehindTheMan puppetmaster behind the scenes]] keeping all the other villains in line. About as mysterious as they come and just as powerful, Nergal has grand ambitions [[spoiler: to bind Dragons to his control]], but to realize them, he needs vast amounts of "[[LifeEnergy Quintessence]]," and to gain that, he intends to cause vast amounts of death and destruction. Striking up an alliance with the mad Lord Darin of Laus, and accompanied at all times by his creations, the [[HumanoidAbomination Morphs]], he has set the stage for a war that will provide him with all the quintessence he needs.

Fairly generic BigBad fare, right? If the player is willing to go hunting for some things off the beaten path, however [[spoiler: a new picture of the Dark Druid will come into focus, that of a tragic and deeply disturbed man who believes he is serving a greater purpose...]]

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: Make sure you get those bonus chapters...]]
* AnticlimaxBoss: {{YMMV}}, but by the time you've found a way around his StoryBreakerPower, you'll have a weapon capable of killing him in two hits. He ''is'' also killing ''you'' in two hits, though, so watch out!
* [[spoiler: ArchnemesisDad]]: ''Maaaaaaaay''be...
* BigBad
* CainAndAbel: With [[spoiler: Athos, though they were simply good friends.]]
* CharacterAlignment: NeutralEvil
* DarkIsEvil
* [[spoiler: TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Athos.
* EvilSorcerer
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn]]
* [[spoiler: LoveMakesYouEvil]]
* MadScientist: A magical variation.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: He [[HannibalLecture verbally beats and pressures]] his forgotten daughter Ninian until she can't withstand it anymore and returns to her dragon form, lets her leave so that she'll return to Eliwood - who unwillingly ''kills her'' with Durandal, and then appears just so he can gloat as she dies]]. ''Ouch''!
* [[spoiler: [[LukeIAmYourFather Ninian And Nils I Am Your Father]]]]: Never outright said but heavily implied.
* StoryBreakerPower: Actually a plot point.
* [[spoiler: TragicMonster]]

!!Brendan Reed

The founder of the Black Fang and its ''de jure'' leader, Brendan, though an assassin, is a noble man who until recently targeted only corrupt nobles, and was seen as a friend to the populace of the country of Bern at large. A widower with two adult sons, he has recently married a woman much younger than himself, Sonia, and with her arrival came a certain corrupting influence in his organization, though whether he realizes it at all is anyone's guess.

* AnAxeToGrind: Signature weapon.
* AntiVillain
* BadassFamily: A patriarch thereof.
* BenevolentBoss
* BumblingDad: A very BadAss variation, but when it comes to his children, he can be quite the scatterbrain.
* AFatherToHisMen: So it's implied, if Uhai's words to Lyn are anything to go by
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has good scars across his eye and neck.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: He definitely ''seems'' much larger than Sonia, though there's no direct comparison.
* MayDecemberRomance: With Sonia [[spoiler: though it turns out she hated it.]]
* NobleDemon: Let's face it, the guy kills people for a living, but [[EvenEvilHasStandards only if they really,]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards really]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards deserve it.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Nino, so much that she called him 'Father' even though he only was through marriage to Sonia [[spoiler: and even then, he wasn't]].
* UglyGuyHotWife: Again, with Sonia. It's made readily apparent to the player that they're as different as night and day.
** Noteworthy in that ''he's'' the more moral individual of the two - usually it's depicted the other way around (if at all).
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought: As a human, anyway ...]]
* UnwittingPawn
* WorthyOpponent
* [[spoiler: YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Sonia does this to him]].

!!Sonia Reed

Called "[[BadassNickname The Queen of the Four Fangs]]," Sonia is Brendan's second wife, [[MayDecemberRomance almost disturbingly younger than he]]. This is, in fact, among the ''least'' disturbing things about this woman, for she is actually one of Nergal's dark servants, and the go-between between the Dark Druid and the Fang proper. She is a skilled manipulator and an even better magician, and rumors say she holds more power over the Fang than even Brendan himself...

At the time she married Brendan, Sonia already had a daughter of her own, Nino, who idolizes her mother and [[WellDoneSonGuy ceaselessly tries to make her proud]].

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: If you don't see her ultimate fate as delightfully ironic, you'll probably see it as this.]]
* AnIcePerson: Her signature spell, Fimbulvetr.
** PsychoElectro: Her ''other'' signature spell. [[DeathFromAbove GODDAMNED BOLTING!]]
* [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: No matter how hard she denies it.]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil.
* CompleteMonster: She has a quality or two that could be seen as, if not sympathetic, then somewhat pitiable, but she's at least on the brink of this.
* DarkMagicalGirl ''and'' DarkActionGirl
* EvilMatriarch
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: Is she ever!
** BuxomBabe: Only Vaida comes close.
** HotMom
** OfCorsetsSexy
** ShesGotLegs
** TallDarkAndBishoujo
** WomanInBlack
* {{Expy}}: Possibly, of Queen Hilda from [[FireEmblemJugdral Seisen No Keifu]]. They're both TallDarkAndBishoujo {{Dark Action Girl}}s who lust for power, have no regard for human lives, and are ''major'' bitches to innocent persons (Nino, in Sonia's case; [[spoiler: Tiltyu and Tinny, or Ethnia and Linda]], in Hilda's)
* [[spoiler: HumanoidAbomination]]
* MoralityPet: Nino. [[spoiler: Not.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: Her treatment of [[spoiler: Nino]], specially when she [[spoiler: bribes the girl into accepting a suicide mission by promising she'll give her a hug after all the years of neglect.]]
** And then we learn about [[spoiler: her and Nergal killing Nino's biological family all those years ago, especially since they'd ''already'' divulged their secrets to her.]]
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Well, she ''claims'' to have one...
* [[spoiler: OffingTheOffspring: Tries to pull the aforementioned Morality License as justification for this one. Jaffar (and presumably the player) don't buy it.]]
* TheScrappy: Her HateDom is large even considering she's a villain; {{Fanon}} tends to make her out as some sort of sexual deviant (which seems par the course fore Scrappies for this game.)
** Doesn't help that she constantly abuses button-cute little [[TheWoobie Nino]], not at all...
* SmugSnake: She ''is'' very manipulative and cool-headed, as well as a very powerful magic user... but her arrogance is such that, by metaphorically punting Nino around, she gains a powerful enemy in Nino's partner Jaffar, ''and'' her plans crumble systematically until [[spoiler: she's left to die by Limstella.]]
** Not to mention she continually insults Limstella herself, [[TooDumbToLive despite the fact Limstella is much more powerful than she is.]]
* [[spoiler: TomatoIntheMirror: Sonia didn't know she was a Morph, and Limstella swiftly tells her that before abandoning her to her luck.]]
* {{Ubermensch}}: What she sees herself as. [[spoiler: She's about as wrong as you can get.]]
* [[spoiler: WhatHappenedToTheMouse[=/=]BolivianArmyEnding: Last seen badly wounded and abandoned by her associates, nothing is ever developed beyond this, oddly.]]
** [[spoiler: Her fate is [[DeathByIrony very]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness clear]] however, if you skip the Gaiden mission you fight her in.]]
* [[spoiler: YouHaveFailedMeForTheLastTime: If the player skips the Gaiden mission she's fought in, Nergal kills her himself for being weak enough to take a serious wound at Brendan's hand, along with allowing the entire situation in Bern to collapse. If the player does not skip the mission and fights her, Limestella arrives in time to take the Quintessence that the badly wounded Sonia had collected, and then simply leaves her where she is to die.]]

!!Ephidel

Nergal's faithful retainer, [[EvilChancellor disguised as Lord Darin's faithful retainer]]. Ephidel is the architect of Nergal's scheme to engulf the country of Lycia in war and Gather all the resulting Quintessence for himself. In fact, Ephidel owes his very existence to the Quintessence, as he is a Morph, an ArtificialHuman created from Quintessence to do Nergal's dirty work. Ephidel largely keeps to the shadows, planting ideas in Darin's head and making sure all the pieces are set in place for the reckoning.

* AffablyEvil: The condescending, manipulative sort.
* ArtificialHuman
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* CompleteMonster: One, Two, Three, Four! Four! Four MoralEventHorizon crossings, [[SesameStreet ah ah ah!]]
* TheCorrupter: Corrupted Lord Darin, managed to make some leeway with Lord Helman ...
* EvilChancellor
* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Gold Eyes Take Warning]]: Lampshaded by Leila.
* [[spoiler: HoistByHisOwnPetard: He led the Dragon invocation, so when it fails thanks to Nils de-brainwashing Ninian, the dragon crumbles and kills Ephidel.]]
* HumanoidAbomination
* TheManBehindTheMan
* ManipulativeBastard
* MoralEventHorizon: If you don't hate him when he stabs Lord Helman, and you don't hate him when he stabs [[spoiler: Lord Hausen]], you'll ''definitely'' hate him when he [[spoiler: has poor Leila slaughtered, then has her mutilated corpse posed to look like it's still alive, ''just to mock you''.]]
* SmugSnake: At least Sonia is powerful and all, he doesn't even have that.
** [[spoiler: He could be, we just never got to see him in action.]]
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought: Much to the chagrin of players who wanted Matthew to gut him. He still gets his KarmicDeath, though.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Dishes these out in spades.

!!Limstella

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* ArtificialHuman
* AmbiguousGender: It was intended that Limstella be more androgynous to the point that there'd be no discernable gender, but the name and the "female Sage" sprite - among other things - has players generally accepting the character as female.
* DarkMagicalGirl
* EmotionlessGirl
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* KickTheDog: Poor [[spoiler: Lloyd and Linus]]
** KickTheSonOfABitch: But in [[spoiler: Sonia]]'s case...
* UndyingLoyalty: To Nergal.

!!The Four Fangs

The brotherhood's four best killers and ranking officers below Brendan and Sonia. The roster rotates depending on the skill of the members, but has at one time or another included:

!!!Jaffar

The Fang's "Angel of Death" and its single best assassin, a child Jaffar was found AtopAMountainOfCorpses by Negal, who raised him to know nothing else but killing. Throughout the story, he handles the Fang's dirtiest jobs and nastiest [[KickTheDog dog-puntings]], including [[spoiler: the murder of Leila]]. [[HitmanWithAHeart But is he all bad?]] See "Main characters" for the answer!

* BadAss: BIG TIME.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Angel of Death.

!!!Lloyd Reed

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* AntiVillain
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral
* [[spoiler: DeathSeeker: If fought in "Cog of Destiny" - his aim is to first kill the people he believes killed Linus, and then join his brother in death]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Though a lesser one, he still appears to be the most popular Fang in fandom.
* Foil: To Eliwood, in a sense.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: If fought in "Cog of Destiny", he's perfectly willing to die since he didn't want to continue living without his brother]].
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam (if Limstella kills him)]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother
* NobleDemon: Will not allow innocents to be harmed even while hunting his targets.
* RedOniBlueOni, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan ''and'' SiblingYinYang: With Linus

!!!Linus Reed

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* AntiVillain
* BadassNormal
* BloodKnight
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticNeutral
* Foil: To Hector, in a sense.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: If fought in "Cog of Destiny" - he wasn't seeking death but was still just glad to join Lloyd]].
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam (if Limstella kills him)]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold (Genuinely cares for his family, save for Sonia)
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Little Brother]]
* NobleDemon: Will not allow innocents to be harmed even while hunting his targets.
* RedOniBlueOni, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan ''and'' SiblingYinYang: With Lloyd
* [[spoiler: RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In "Cog of Destiny"]].

!!!Ursula

This woman, nicnkamed "the Blue Crow", is the only female among the four Fangs. She is a coldly-efficient magic user who is under the direct orders of Sonia Reed, whom she's very loyal to.

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: Even if she was a cold bitch, the fact that Ursula was still thinking of her lady of liege of sorts as she was about to die is somewhat touching for some.]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* DarkMagicalGirl
* EnemyMine: A very minor case, but Ursula doesn't like Vaida and gives you an incredibly useful staff on the promise you'll humiliate her. Which you do.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: If she isn't already beyond words from the heroes defeating her, Ursula calmly accepts her fate at Limstella's hands.
* FemmeFatale: Beautiful, well-endowed... and damn deadly.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Ursula appears to be unaware of the divide between Nergal's faction and the Reed's within the fang, and is implied to have been with the fang since before Sonia. She never questions it, however, since she worships Sonia.
* PlayingWithFire: Has an Elfire tome.
** PsychoElectro: And [[DeathFromAbove a GODDAMNED BOLTING!]]
** BlowYouAway: Replaces Elfire with Excalibur [[spoiler: as a Morph.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Sonia, arguably a SubordinateExcuse for some.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* WakeUpCallBoss: FUCKING BOOOOOOOOLTING!

!!!Jerme

The Fang's "Death Kite," he ''used'' to be the organization's single best assassin, before Jaffar's arrival cost him that lofty position and his Four Fangs title. Though still maintaining a high position in the Fang, his demotion has made him bitter, and he is eager to prove himself to the leadership by any means necessary. A bloodthirsty sociopath, he has an unhealthy obsession with cutting things, and his sword, the Light Brand, can deal death up close and from far away.

* AxCrazy: ''Knife'' crazy.
* BloodKnight: With very little emphasis on 'knight' and plenty more emphasis on 'blood'. Lots and ''lots'' of blood.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* CompleteMonster: What he says to Lyn upon first seeing her really clinches it.
-->'''Lyndis:''' Eliwood! There's no reason to treat with that mad man!! We must find the exit...
-->'''Jerme:''' You! Woman! You have beautiful skin. If I sliced you into lovely red ribbons with this, would the pieces be as soft and delicate as silk?
--->'''Lyndis:''' You...
* KnifeNut
* NightmareFuel
* OneSceneWonder: Despite only appearing in one chapter, he's very unsettling and unforgettable. [[spoiler: He ''does'' appear again in the final chapter, but as a silent morph]].
* {{Squick}}

!!!Pascal Grentzer
He was once part of the Four Fangs, known as the "Crazed Beast", but was imprisoned due to his ruthlessness. Sonia frees him and promises to restore him to his rank if he succeeds in killing the lords. He is known as the Crazed Beast because he once invited his entire city population into his castle, and proceeded to slaughter them all to ensure that one person was killed.

* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* CompleteMonster: He invited his ENTIRE city population just to ensure ONE person was killed and slaughtered them all.
* PaletteSwap: Of Bauker... who happens to be an AntiVillain.
* RedBaron: Known as the "Crazed Beast"

!!Heintz
The first ranking member of the Black Fang encountered by Lyn's party, Heintz is a Shaman sent to retrieve the wayward Nils, who had escaped Nergal's clutches with his sister. He seems to hold a very low opinion of the concept of heroism, deriding as stupidly idealistic any attempt to hinder his designs. He and his men are aware of Nergal's influence in the Fang, and appear to hold loyalty to him rather than Brendan.

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* DarkIsEvil
* GenreBlind: Is apparently quite unaware that he is in one of the more [[SlidingScaleofIdealismVersusCynicism idealistic]] Fire Emblem games.
* KilledMidSentence
* MemeticMutation: Insert your Ketchup jokes here.
* WakeUpCallBoss: While still rather simple (you're still on the tutorial, after all), he's noticeably more deadly than the mere bandits you've faced so far.

!!Beyard
The controller of the group sent to recapture Nils and Ninian following their first escape (and thus probably Heintz's supervisor), Beyard reports to Ursula of the Four Fangs. A deeply unhappy man, he lives in constant fear of [[YouHaveFailedMe failing the Fang]]. He confronts Lyn's group when they track Ninian's treasured ring to his fortress, and is given one last chance to kill them by Ursula.

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]
* TooDumbToLive: From a gameplay perspective. There is absolutely no reason he shouldn't move, but he doesn't.
* YouHaveFailedMe: His greatest fear. [[spoiler: He ends up doing this to ''himself''.]]

!!Wire
A member of the Black Fang in service to Nergal, he led a few troops in a failed attempt to assasinate Hector during his sneaking-out attempt at the start of Hector's story. Annoying at his theatrics, Hector dispatched him fairly quickly.

* BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* SmugSnake

!!Boies
The first member of the Black Fang Eliwood encounters on his quest, Boies is one of Ephidel's men and seems to enjoy his job a bit too much. His assignment is to stop Eliwood and company from reaching the city of Santaruz, a job he treats as a macabre game of cat and mouse. He is not above involving innocents in his conflicts, employing bandits to pillage the area surrounding Castle Santaruz.

* [[BaldOfEvil Bald]] ''and'' BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* EvilLaugh
** AnnoyingLaugh: "Gya ha ha!"
* JerkAss
* MightyGlacier
* ViolentGlaswegian: Not literally, obviously, but he talks like one, at least.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Probably the first Eliwood's story boss that's killing you in two hits. He can be a source of nasty surprises for new players.

!!Damian
->''“You're about to die. Scream if you must.”''
-->-- '''Damian'''

The Fang member sent to intercept Eliwood's group at Badon to prevent them from getting a boat to the Dread Isle, where Nergal is located. Damian is cold and doesn't display much personality, which makes him seem perhaps the most "assassin-like" of the minor Fang members.

* AlasPoorVillain: Arguably
* BeardOfEvil
* BonusBoss: Unless you're playing Hector's story, you don't actually have to fight him. The reward for beating him, however is access to [[GameBreaker the Arena...]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* PaletteSwap: Of Wire.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Are you ''sure'' you really need that Arena?

!!Zoldam
The Fang member sent to retrieve Ninian after she escapes from Nergal's clutches at the Dragon's Gate, Zoldam pursues Ninians small boat with two ships full of Black Fang members, boarding the ''Davros'', with the party aboard, after they pick up Ninian. Like many other Fang members, Zoldam is icy in personality, and coldly orders the death of everyone on the ship apart from Ninian.

* BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil, though more evil than lawful.
* DarkIsEvil
* GameBreaker: Carries the all-powerful Luna magic...
** BreatherBoss: ...though he's still simple if you go after him with physical attacks.

!!Uhai
->''“Holding a woman hostage during battle is shameful. You, too, are of Sacae, and I've a mind to show you mercy. I will let you die with a sword in your hands. But rest assured... I will kill you all here. But be of good cheer! In dying, you shall all be spared the calamity that is to come!”''
-->-- '''Uhai'''

An honorable, high-ranking member of the Fang, and one of the Fang members closest to Brendan Reed's ideology. He is one of the nomads of Sacae, and as such he is an honest person who only does evil when it is necessary. Upon attacking the party, he finds something of a kindred spirit in Lyn, whom he holds hostage to get Eliwood and Hector's attention, but then releases, as he finds threatening a woman to be against his code of honor. [[spoiler: Upon his defeat, he recognizes the party as [[WorthyOpponent worthy opponents]], and points them to the Dragon's Gate]].

* AntiVillain
* TheArcher
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* EvenEvilHasStandards: See his quote
* TheFatalist: The reason why he joined Black Fang.
* {{Nakama}}: He regarded the Black Fang as such before their corruption - Legault's support conversations imply Uhai was friends with him, as well as with the Reeds and Jan.
* NobleDemon: The best example in the Black Fang.
* RedBaron: "Soaring Hawk"
* WorthyOpponent: Regarded the opposition as such when they killed him, motivating him to [[spoiler: give them directions to the Dragon's Gate]]. Eliwood and Lyn considered him as such due to his honourable nature, as did Hector (though somewhat grudgingly so).
* WouldntHitAGirl: He would, but only if fighting against her.

!!Aion
The Black Fang's "Owl", tasked with guarding the entrance to the Dragon's Gate.

* [[spoiler: BroughtDownToNormal]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* TheChessmaster: Well, he tries to be this.
* FantasticRacism: Towards Sacaens, apparently. See PaletteSwap, below.
* PaletteSwap: Of Marquess Araphen. Many fans have theorised that he may in fact ''be'' the Marquess, considering their shared FantasticRacism - however, he has no battle conversations with Lyn, Kent or Sain, so this is somewhat in doubt.
* SmugSnake
* ThisCannotBe: His reaction when [[spoiler: Kishuna]] shows up.

!!Teodor

* EvilRedHead
* GracefulLoser: Accepts his death quite calmly.
* PaletteSwap
* TheQuietOne

!!Kenneth
The Fang's "Shrike", a man who gave up his faith in the gods - who he believes to be lies fabricated by mankind - to worship Nergal, who he considers the closest thing to a God the world has. Trusted by Sonia, he possessed the rare and powerful Light tome, Aura.

* AffablyEvil: Very courteous and polite. And an asshole.
* BaldOfEvil: Not fully bald, but he has a pretty big bald spot on his head.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* DefectorFromDecadence: Percieves ''himself'' as such.

* FlatEarthAtheist
* LightisNotGood
* SinisterMinister
* SmugSnake

!!Maxime

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* TheDragon: To Ursula
* FlatCharacter
* SuicidalOverconfidence: Tries to attack Jaffar immediately, and is very likely to die just as fast.
* TheWorfEffect: Technically we don't know whether or not he's actually all that badass, but he is a named, non-faceless Paladin (a fairly solid promoted class overall, more or less TheMario among class) who more or less serves the purpose of being ''destroyed'' by Jaffar, most likely to demonstrate that Jaffar can handle himself as long as his Killing Edge lasts.

!!Denning

* TheArcher
* BrokenRecord: "This is a message from Lord Nergal..."
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* EnsembleDarkhorse
* WakeUpCallBoss: The map is designed so it is difficult to bumrush him, and gives him an easy opportunity to snipe at you with impunity.
** WeaksauceWeakness: On the other hand, if you ''do'' manage to bumrush him and surround him, with nobody next to the people surrounding him, the battle is already decided with his defeat, provided you don't move.

!!Kishuna
A mysterious man in a red cloak who appears periodically should certain paths be taken throughout the game. He has the mysterious ability to negate all magic in a rather large vicinity of himself. He is actually [[spoiler: the first Morph created with emotions, who was rejected by Nergal, his creator.]]

* AlasPoorVillain
* [[spoiler: ArtificialHuman]]
* BonusBoss: Only appears on side chapters.
* CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral

[[folder:Laus]]

!!Lord Darin of Laus

* AGodAmI
* AlasPoorVillain: Even after all he's done, it's not hard to pity him when he's mortally wounded, in shock over his death and desperately calling for Ephidel to help him, trying to reassert his position. It becomes even easier when Nils reveals how Ephidel essentially corrupted him to his current actions.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* ClimaxBoss
* DirtyOldMan: Poor Priscilla...
* DrivenToMadness: He ''was'' [[JerkAss arrogant and unpleasant]], but loyal to Lycia prior to his involvement with the Fang. Erik confirms this when captured and interrogated.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Abandoning his son and heir Erik to his own luck, upon Ephidel's pressure. To his credit, Darin himself doesn't like it either, but he still does so.]]

* DistressedDude: To be fair, the poor guy had a really crappy health due to his extremely old age [[spoiler: and because Lundgren had been secretly poisoning him. He's still not fully recovered a year later, when [[ButtMonkey he gets stabbed by Ephidel]] and barely survives.]]

!!Lundgren

->''“Such a waste. An absolute waste. The things I'll do for gold. Ah, well. Time to die, darlin'! C'mon out, boys!”''
-->-- '''Zugu''' to '''Lyn'''

The boss of Lyn mode Chapter 1. He is a bandit sent by Lord Lundgren to kill Lyndis. Him calling Lyndis by her full name is what clues her in, in regards to Lundgren.

!!Glass
->''“I am Glass! The gods fear my name! My swordplay is peerless!”''
-->-- '''Glass'''

The boss of Lyn mode Chapter 2. He and his group of bandits try to steal the Mani Katti from its scabbard, but is stopped by Lyn and her companions.

* BadassBoast: See above
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Despite being a level 3 mercenary with bad stats, he's one of the most beloved characters in the game, mostly due to..

[[folder: The Eight Legends]]

1000 years ago, there was a huge war between humans and dragons known as the Scouring. Mankind won this battle, but mainly thanks to the efforts of eight warriors. These eight warriors became known as the "Eight Legends" (or "Eight Divine Generals" in the Japanese version) and their weapons became known as the "Divine General Weapons" (sometimes referred to as just "Divine Weapons").

!!Saint Elimine

Second magic user, and founder of Etruria as well as the St. Elimine Order. She wields Light magic and her tome is Aureola.

Third magic user of the band, and Anima Magic user [[spoiler: (originally)]]. After the war, he left to live in solitude in the Nabata Desert.

Seals]]
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* KidAnova: Thany, Lilina, Sue, Lalum, Cecilia, Sophia...
* NiceGuy
* ObliviousToLove: Okay, so he ''does'' know Lilina since they were both kids so it may be a little weird for him to see her as more than his best friend at first, but he still has no real excuse in regards to the other girls.
* RedHeadedHero
* TheHero ''[[GuileHero and]]'' TheSmartGuy: For his young age and lack of experience, Roy ''is'' pretty cunning in regards to politics. I.e.: [[spoiler: he discovers almost by himself that Elphin was the missing Prince Mildain under a SpoonyBard disguise.]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: The very fact that Roy is promoted near the end of the game makes lots of people think of him is one of the worst lords in the Fire Emblem series.
** Although there is a few who think of him as {{Badass}} due to the fact that he can have up ''six potential wives'', the most that a lord can have in any Fire Emblem game.

'''Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword'''

The seventh game in the ''FireEmblem'' series, the second one in the [[FireEmblemElibe Elibe]] timeline, the first released in the West, and arguably the most popular of them all, ''FireEmblem: The Blazing Blade'' features a massive cast of heroes to cheer for, allies to make, [[TheWoobie Woobies]] to gush over, and villains to both [[WorthyOpponent understand]] and [[CompleteMonster be revolted by]].
----

[[folder: The Lords]]

!!Eliwood Pherae
The young son of Lord Elbert, Marquess Pherae, Eliwood grew up surrounded by the complex politics of the Lycian League. Under the watchful eye of his parents, OldRetainer Marcus and his father's close friends among the lords, he became an even-tempered and compassionate man, self-conscious and aware of the world despite his stable upbringing. He met Lyn during her travels and provided her with crucial political aid which enabled her to unite with her grandfather. When his father disappeared a year later, he chose to search him out with the aid of a few trusted soldiers - and subsequently discovered evidence of a terrible plot that threatened the stability of not only Elibe, but of the entire world.

In the sequel/prequel "The Sword Of Seals", he's the father of Roy, that game's protagonist. [[spoiler: His dead mom can be either Ninian, Fiora, or Lyndis.]]

* BadassNormal: He's never even been on the battlefield before, and yet can hold his own against enemies while ''still'' appearing graceful in combat.
* BlueEyes
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling The Old Woman Out]]: Not his own, but in what is probably his ''greatest'' display of Badassery, he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome calls out *Queen Hellene of Bern* on her exploitative treatment of her son Prince Zephiel, even though they require her aid]]. For what it's worth, Pent and Louise both agree with him.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood or NeutralGood
* DisappearedDad: The whole deal with him is kickstarted when Elbert disappears...
* EarlyBirdCameo: When he [[spoiler: rescues Ninian and then helps out Lyn]] in Lyn's Tale.
* FragileSpeedster
** LightningBruiser: If raised properly and/or the CPU doesn't fuck you up.
* FutureBadass: Becomes ruler of Pherae and a well-respected voice in the Lycian League
* TheHero
* HeroesPreferSwords
** RoyalRapier
* HeroicBSOD: Has two: one when [[spoiler: his father dies]], and another when [[spoiler: he's accidentally killed Ninian while she was in dragon form]]. To his everlasting credit, he does ''not'' allow his grief to consume him, and recovers quickly enough to rejoin the fight. In fact, in Hector's story mode, the chapter immediately following his first BSOD actually ''makes'' you use him to drive the point home. The man might be sensitive, but don't you ''dare'' accuse him of {{Wangst}}.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Hector
** HoYay: If you want more...
* HonourBeforeReason
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: When you can [[spoiler: stare down a ruthless mass murderer - one who has NoEmpathy for others; who has mocked you for accidentally killing a young girl you grew close to/fell in love with; and who actively shoot down his former best friend by scoffing at the importance of friendship - and ''still'' declare that you do not hate him for what he's done, but pity him instead]], then you ''know'' you're at least on the ''way'' towards this trope.
* KnightInShiningArmour: He seems to be one in the early stages of the game (though a less naive one than usual). As he bears witness to the more ruthless aspects of humanity during his journey, however, he becomes more of a ...
** KnightInSourArmour, instead. He doesn't go to the extreme, thankfully.
* NiceGuy
* RedHeadedHero
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Hector.
* ReluctantWarrior: He'll fight for the sake of justice and peace, but he doesn't particularly enjoy it - especially when innocents get involved in the "foolish politics" of nobles.
* [[spoiler: RescueRomance: if he has an A Support with Ninian]].
* RousseauWasRight: He seems to believe this, even after meeting many evil or unstable people on his journey. [[spoiler: At the end of the game he expresses his belief - towards the more [[JadeColouredGlasses jaded Nils and Ninian]] - that the day will eventually come when humans and dragons can together live in peace once more]].
* SayMyName
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The sensitive guy to Hector's more manly man.
* TheScrappy: A number of people consider him this, resulting in poor treatment within the fandom. As he doesn't have any particularly negative qualities, it's most likely a result of him being a 'less interesting' character than Hector and Lyn (and by extension, a good portion of the playable and supporting cast). That, and bcause his stats aren't spectacular. For the remainder of the fandom, he's considered a decent character in his own right and nonetheless has his fans.
* TenderTears
* TheWisePrince: A textbook example.
* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Oh, FanDumb...

!!Hector Ostia

The third lord of the group and younger brother to Uther, the Marquess of Ostia. His parents died of illness when he was a young boy, so his brother is more of a father figure to him. Hector is restless, hot-blooded, and loyal to a fault; thus, as soon as he hears word about Elbert's disappearance, he appeals to Uther and tells him to do something about it. When Uther refuses, he and the spy Matthew run away from the castle, and are ambushed by the Black Fang; once that's dealt with, they're joined by the knight Oswin and the cleric Serra, and Hector fully throws himself in the huge mess that's about to happen.


In the sequel/prequel "The Sword Of Seals", he's the leader of the Lycian Aliiance and the father of MagicalGirl Lilina. [[spoiler: Her dead mom can be either Lyndis, Florina, or Farina.]]

* AnAxeToGrind
* {{Badass}}: And HOW.
* BadassBeard: In the WhereAretheyNowEpilogue
* BigBrotherInstinct: Acts as one towards Nils.
* TheBigGuy
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood
* EnsembleDarkhorse: He's a main character, but still ... Well, the creators claim that he's one of the series' most popular characters, prompting them to model Ike in "Path of Radiance" off him (in terms of both personality and relative appearance). He's certainly the most popular of the Lords. Probably helps that he has such a complex personality and is seen as more intriguing that the more straight-good Eliwood and Lyn (though they also have character flaws).
* {{Expy}}: Once you look into it, you'll realize he has a lot of similarities to Lex from the 4th game. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Blue hair]]? check. AnAxeToGrind? check. HotBlooded? check. LeeroyJenkins? check.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Him and Eliwood.
* HotBlooded
* KnightInSourArmour: He knows the world's a pretty messed-up place, but damn if he's going to stand by idly and let terrible things just happen!
* LeeroyJenkins: Hector isn't big on the whole planning thing most of the time, but not to the point of endangering the rest of the group.
** Lampshaded by Athos: "Your recklessness may one day be your undoing..."
* MightyGlacier: If the CPU screws you up.
** LightningBruiser: If it doesn't.
* OverprotectiveDad: Read his and Eli's B support and you'll know why. [[spoiler: Sadly, doesn't prevent his death by Zephiel in Fuuin. his FamousLastWords are a plea for Roy to help Lilina out.]]
* PapaWolf: Never ''ever'' slight one of his friends. And this doesn't only extend to Eliwood or Lyn, either. After all, he straightforwardly tells [[spoiler: Jaffar]] that he hasn't forgiven his killing of [[spoiler: Leila]], and says he'll kill him with his own hands if he steps out of line.
* ParentalAbandonment: His parents died of tuberculosis when he was a child, so his brother became a surrogate parent to him. [[spoiler: Uther later dies from the same illness]].
* PetTheDog: Decides to give Nils a ride on his shoulders when he sees the boy struggling to get through Nabata. Though the boy was sort of reluctant and surprised, remember that Hector is wearing loud, heavy, ''sweaty'' armour in the desert, and giving someone a piggyback is ''not'' going to make movement easier.
* PrecisionFStrike: Never lets loose any major swear words, but he curses quiet a lot in the story and is pretty creative with insults.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Eliwood, Oswin ''and'' Uther.
* SiblingYinYang: Hector is HotBlooded, his older brother Uther is stoic and snarky.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The manly man to Eliwood's sensitive guy.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Nergal himself admits Hector's existence ruined his plans, just by helping Eliwood.
* VitriolicBestBuds: If him and Lyn aren't romantically inclined, then they are definitely this - later in the story they seem to regard their arguments as a game.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Lyndis "Lyn" Caelin

Daughter of Madelyn, princess of Caelin, and Hassan, chief of the nomadic Lorca tribe, Lyn grew up without a care in the world on the plains of her father's homeland, Sacae. All of that changed when her home was pillaged by a brutal group of bandits, the Taliver, who left fewer than ten people alive. Forced to survive on her own, Lyn's life changes for the better when she comes across a [[NonEntityGeneral certain strategist]], and before she knows it she is caught up in a game of war and political intrigue once she learns of her royal heritage. A life of ease as the last remaining heir of the aging Marquess of Caelin awaits her... if she can survive the ambitions of her EvilUncle, Lord, Lundgren, that is!

Second, when [[spoiler: she meets Hausen just as he's about to succumb to DeathByDespair]]. Third, in Hector's route, when [[spoiler: she explains her tragic backstory to him, telling him the massacre of the Lorca in detail]]. And lastly, also in Hector's route, [[spoiler: when [[HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim she offers to cry instead of him]] because of Uther's demise.]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Florina and Ninian's Girly Girls.

--> '''Wallace''': I've been a knight for 30 years, and there's one thing I learned. A person with eyes as bright and true as yours is no deceiver.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Dark green hair.

[[folder: Characters Introduced During Lyn's Story]]

!!Sain
->''“May I have the pleasure of your name? Or better yet, your company!”''
-->-- '''Sain'''

The first and undeniably the oddest person Lyn meets on her journey, Sain is a gallant cavalier in service to House Caelin, full of "passion and fire," beloved of the populace who sends women swooning... or so he would have you believe. In reality, he amounts to little more than a skirt-chaser. Considered lazy and foolish by his comrades in Caelin's knights, Sain desperately ''wants'' to be a hero (mostly so he can get chicks), it’s just that he isn’t very good at it, at least at first.

* TheBigGuy: Being the most physically powerful of Lyn's core group of five, he fits this role best in "Lyndis' Legions"
* BladeOnAStick: It is, as we all know, the most heroic of ''all'' weapons.
* ButtMonkey: To ''the game engine itself''. He spends a good slice of the tutorial screwing up, so that Kent can instruct the player on what ''not'' to do.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood. He's not shy about bitching out those who slight Lyn or Hausen, and his solo ending says that he becomes a freelance knight upon Hausen's death and Lyn leaving Caelin while Kent stays as its steward.
* ChivalrousPervert: MostTriumphantExample? Maybe!
* CrazyAwesome
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: A good percentage of his dialogue.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kent.
** HoYay: If you like 'em as more, ladies.
* IncomingHam: Often heard before he's seen, followed by his chat head dashing into view.
* KnightInShiningArmor: He tries, bless him..
* MatchmakerCrush: His and Kent's B support suggests strongly that he has feelings for Lyn too, but would rather let Kent take the lead.
-->'''Sain:''' Oh, get over it! You can admit it, can't you?! I mean, she is beautiful, and she is kind... How could anyone not have feelings for her? (...) But I guess I will have to let you take the lead here, since that is truly the knightly thing to do for one's partner...
* MrExposition: He and Kent know more than a little about Caelin politics.
* LargeHam
* ShooOutTheClowns: Declines in importance as the game increases in seriousness, to the point that, as far as the plot is concerned, he's almost a non-entity following the DiscOneFinalBoss.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Kent, again.
* TheWoobie: His supports with Rebecca and Priscilla give some insight into the psyche of a guy like him. [[DeconstructedTrope It's not pretty.]]

!!Kent
->''“Our territory may be small, but our knights are among the bravest!”''
-->-- '''Kent''' to '''Heath''' in a support conversation

San's associate, who evidently does the thinking for both of them, Kent is another of the knights sent by Caelin to retrieve Lyn. Kent has a good head on his shoulders and a fair knowledge of battle tactics, which he will gladly explain to you during the ForcedTutorial. He is totally devoted to Lyn's service, something that may simply be duty or may be, as Sain suspects, a sign of attraction.

* BodyguardCrush: Well, Sain says so, at least.
** Confirmed if he and Lyn get an A support, since she sets off to Sacae with him after they leave Caelin in Hector's care.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood.
* FanPreferredCouple: A good deal of people like to ship him with Lyn, though that's not to say Fiora doesn't have her supporters, either.
* TheGenericGuy: Outside his support conversations at least, his main personality trait is essentially "not Sain."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sain.
** HoYay: If you want them as more.
* KnightInShiningArmor: And how.
* TheLancer: In Lyn's core group, though he's less prone to being argumentative than most Lancers (tending to fight with TheBigGuy instead).
* TheMario: The most balanced of all of the mounted units, but the only one that doesn't excel in anything, either.
* MrExposition: Through the fourth wall!
* TheStoic: To a fault. Sain lampshades it once when he comments that Kent will age too quickly considering how much he worries.
** {{Kuudere}}: Comes as this with Lyn, and later with Fiora.

!!Florina
->''“W-Well, what was I supposed to do? All those bees came flying out at me! I was so frightened...”''
-->-- '''Florina''' to '''Lyn''' in a support conversation

A childhood friend of Lyn's from Ilia. The first Pegasus Knight to join the group, she pledges her support to Lyn due to their friendship. After helping her against Lundgren, she stays with Lyn until Nergal rises up. As Castle Caelin is under attack, Florina manages to escape and reach for Eliwood's crew.

* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood
* TheChick: In Lyn's core five - doesn't stop her from being an efficient fighter though.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Seem rather intimidated by them, [[CharacterDevelopment at first]]. Even the choice of the Tactician's gender will influence her dialogue with him/her.
** Heck, the RunningGag is so strong that her three supports with Hector are about Florina trying to thank him for helping her out and not being able to spit it out.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: If she's not shipped with Lyn, then this is how their relationship is interpreted.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The 'tiny girl' half with Hector, if they are shipped.
* LesYay: One of her common ships is with Lyn, and they have a dual ending that can be seen very easily as Florina becoming her VictoriousChildhoodFriend if you like the couple.
** She has RomanticTwoGirlFriendship vibes with Serra and/or Nino, too.
* LoveInterest: She may become one of Hector's, and is her other common ship.
* {{Moe}}: Oh so much
* MoeCouplet: Her supports with Lyn, Serra, and Nino not only multiply her own {{Moe}}, they help share it with the other girl. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming The results are often spectacular.]]
* PluckyGirl
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Lyn, Serra, and Nino.
* ShrinkingViolet: Mostly because she's been [[RaisedByDudes raised by ladies]] and the Pegasi Knight units are all-female squads for obvious reasons.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Lyn's Tomboy.
** And Farina's and Fiora's, too.
* WeaponOfChoice
** BladeOnAStick: Default for Pegasi Knights.
** HotChickWithASword: Upgraded to one upon becoming a Falcon Knight.

!!Wil
->''Rath: “But… Wil… You are still… strange.”''
->''Wil: “Huh? W-Why? Nonsense. I’m normal! I might as well be Normal Archer number three!”''
->''Rath: “…Number three? Why three?”''
->''Wil: “Well… No reason, I guess. It just seemed…pretty normal.”''
-->-- '''Wil''' and '''Rath''' in a support conversation

A young archer from Pherae, he left his village a few years ago to earn his fortune. Met Lyn in a squabble with some bandits in Bern, and after defeating them he joined her retinue - even coining the name 'Lyndis' Legions'. [[spoiler: He's the childhood friend of Rebecca and her brother Dan, the latter of whom he left with before they were separated.]]

* TheArcher
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Develops into one in his supports with Raven.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood
* TheDitz: Especially emphasised in his supports with Raven, though it may just be that he's contrasted with one of the game's most unhappy characters.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Some of his Supports reveal he's quite unsure of himself and really lacking confidence. Nonetheless this also gives him vibes of ...
** TheDeterminator: In his Supports with Rath, he strives to learn to shoot horseback despite struggling to do so. In his Supports with Wallace, he strives to train despite the immense regimen the former General puts him through (it also gives him a sense for his own limits.
* HoYay: With Rath, in their Supports. [[YourMileageMayVary For some]], anyway.
* [[spoiler: MyGreatestFailure: He's so ashamed of having left his family without warning and not even fulfilling his motivations for doing so, that he hasn't made contact with them in five years - even though he told Lyn he'd send word. Finally does so with some persuasion from Lyn, in their A Support]].
* NiceGuy: One of the most stable and all-around 'normal' characters in the game. He's even implied to get along fairly well with Florina, even though they don't exactly fall on the right end of the Weapon's spectrum ...
* SempaiKouhai: Tries to develop this with Raven. It doesn't work.
* TheSmartGuy: He's pretty world-wise, anyway, and so sort of fits this role in Lyn's group.
* [[spoiler: VictoriousChildhoodFriend: With Rebecca, if they get an A Support]].
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Rebecca calls him out for leaving his home behind and never making contact with her or his family. It works]].
** Also called out by Lyn on that.

!!Dorcas
A quiet but kind man from Bern, who joins a band of brigands to make money for his IllGirl wife, Natalie. Has a change of heart after meeting Lyn and joins her group. In Eliwood's story, he joins early on, still making money to help his wife.

* AnAxeToGrind
* TheBigGuy: In the early stages of both Lyn and Eliwood's stories.
* CharacterAlignment: Neutral Good
* GentleGiant
* HeelFaceTurn
* HonourBeforeReason: In his Supports with [[spoiler: Farina, he insists on making enough money to pay her back for her charity, even those she's initially willing to let him be]].
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Implied, with his wife Natalie.
* IWillProtectHer: Builds his entire character around this trope.
* {{Narm}}: Many people will admit to cracking up when they first heard his name.
* NiceGuy
* PapaWolf: Is initially willing to do anything, no matter how bad, to help his wife. Lyn only snaps him out of it by persuading him that his wife would not forgive him for it. Even then, he [[spoiler: declines an offer by Oswin to join Ostia's knights, stating that he fights only for his wife.]]
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Bartre's Manly Man.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Him and Bartre.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: At first - he almost became a KnightTemplar over it. Lyn managed to talk him out of it, though.

!!Serra
A loud, seemingly obnoxious priestess in service to Ostia who hired Erk to be her escort. They met Lyn and joined her party after dealing with a band of bandits near the Bern border. She joins Eliwood's party by extension of joining Hector on his quest first. Although she seems intolerable on the outside, she has pains within that she hides from the world ...

* [[spoiler: BrokenBird]]
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood
* CryCute: Many of her A supports involve her breaking down in tears [[TearJerker and making us cry with her]]
* [[spoiler: FallenPrincess: If the Etrurian parents who abandoned her in a convent when she was a little girl ''were'' noblemen from a fallen clan.]]
* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: If paired up with the MightyGlacier Oswin.
** Doubles as MayDecemberRomance because she's 16 and he's in his 30's.
* JerkassWoobie: Haughty, childish, blunt... and very pitiful once you know her backstory.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Her Supports with Lucius cement her status as this.
** Also her supports with Florina, where she helps her open up.
* {{Nakama}}: Her relationship with Hector, as [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming seen in their A Support]].
* OddFriendship: Despite her noisy and boisterous ways, Serra can become good friends with Florina, to the point of RomanticTwoGirlFriendship.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[FreudianExcuse It causes her a lot of angst and is the source her irritable personality.]]
* RoseHairedGirl
* TheScrappy: Had something of a HateDom in the early years, though it has since calmed down.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: For those who get certain supports, she becomes a ''much'' more likeable character once her past is revealed. Especially her supports with [[TearJerker Hector, Oswin and Lucius]]...
* ShipperOnDeck: Her supports with Sain show her as vying for a LoveTriangle between Hector, Eliwood and Lyndis.
* StaffChick
** MagicalGirlWarrior
* TedBaxter: Acts like one, but it's a bit more complicated than that.
** StepfordSmiler: A type A. She appears cheery and bitchy, but is more insecure than she'd like you to know.
* {{Tsundere}}: Particularly towards Erk and Matthew.
* WellDoneSonGuy: The person whose approval she most desperately yearns for is Oswin. In their B support, when he harshly scolds her, her self-esteem is shattered and it takes her almost their whole A support to regain it.
--> '''Serra''': ...I want to talk to you, but... all you ever do is tell me everything I'm doing wrong... You don't like anything I do, right? So... So... ... ... ... ... ......sniff...
* WellExcuseMePrincess
* TheWoobie

!!Erk
A young studying mage, the only student of the Mage General of Etruria, Lord Pent. First appears as Serra's escort, helping Lyn's party thereafter. While escorting Priscilla, they end up stuck in Laus due to its corrupt Marquess being infatuated with his employer. He and Priscilla join Eliwood's party in exchange for their assistance, also hoping that it may help her in finding her missing family. He's often quite uptight, but mellows around people he's closer towards.

* BodyguardCrush: Sort of inverted example with Priscilla, though he eventually catches on as well.
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Serra annoys him a lot, but he likes her a lot more than he lets on.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Lord]]
* FanPreferredCouple: With Priscilla. It helps that [[spoiler: theirs is Priscilla's ''only'' happy romantic ending.]]
* {{Kuudere}}: A male varient
* ParentalSubstitute: Pent and Louise are essentially his adoptive parents, and they treat him as such. Especially Louise, who actively dotes over him.
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Serra is particularly good at pushing his buttons.
* WellDoneSonGuy: To Pent, oh God.

!!Rath
The son of Dayan, tribal leader of the Kutolah Tribe in Sacae. He was [[spoiler: sent away from his tribe as a child due to a prophecy stating that he would play an important role in saving the world]]. Eventually became Captain of the Palace Guard at Araphen, where he met Lyn during a attack by Lundgren. He joined her party after witnessing the extent of his liege lord's bigotry, and disappeared after her defeat of Lundgren - before re-emerging as a mercenary and rejoining the group on her behalf.

* TheArcher
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[spoiler: When his tribe's diviner saw a dark omen in the stars, Rath, as the Chiefton's son, was required to leave so that he would help prevent it coming to pass. Needless to say, he does.]].
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood --> NeutralGood
* TheChiefsDaughter: Genderflipped
* DefectorFromDecadence: Of a sort - he served as Captain of the Guard at Araphen until he realised his liege-lord would never see Sacaens as equals
* [[spoiler: ParentalAbandonment: He was sent out of his tribe - before he was even ''four'' - because as the Chiefton's son he had a duty to prevent the world's destruction]].
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* RescueRomance: With Lyn, if they have an A Support
* SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler: If Rath stays in the main party until the story's end, he returns to his tribe to recieve a warm welcome from his fellow tribemen, particularly his father]].
* TheStoic
** {{Kuudere}}: Towards Lyn in particular. Also shows his ''dere'' side to [[HoYay Will, in their Supports]].


!!Matthew

A mischievous and sly young man, good at catching info and stealing things. He's actually one of the top spies of Ostia, who first aids Lyndis and tells his lords about what happened, then pledges his loyalty to Hector and joins him in his quest.

* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood
* TheCombatPragmatist: Much to Guy's irritation, Matthew accepted a challenge and then ambushed Guy while he was asleep to teach him that he won't last long if he expects people in war to fight fair.
* FragileSpeedster: As with all thieves.
** MagikarpPower: If you're patient...
* [[spoiler: ILetGwenStacyDie]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity
* {{Revenge}}: A huge theme in his supports, specially those with Jaffar... [[spoiler: the guy who killed his girlfriend Leila.]]
* {{Trickster}}: Specially obvious in his supports with Hector.
* TheWoobie: You'll ''really'' want to hug him once [[spoiler: you learn what happened to Leila.]]

!!Lucius

A quiet, kind, but also very stubborn monk from the Saint Elimine Order, whom we meet as he joins Lyundis's group after seeing Nils being mistreated by scared townspeople. Later we meet him again as the travel companion of a troubled man named Raven.

* {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheCutie: His backstory, in which [[spoiler: his dad dies in front of him, his IllGirl mom dies few later, he's sent to an OrphanageOfFear and is bullied there, then is employed by the Cornwells but loses them too and can only watch as Raymond is consumed by bitterness...]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* {{Determinator}}: He manages to pull through all the crap life has thrown at him, and his B support with Raven is about [[spoiler: finally calling him out on his purposes and refusing to take it anymore. So much that Raven actually has to drop his JerkAss attitude and pretty much apologize to him for pushing him away.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: AND HOLY SHIT HOW.
** DroppedABridgetOnHim: Or better said, on Serra.
* HoYay: With Raven, so much.
* GayOption: Generally considered to serve as one for Raven. Implied to have a straight option with Serra based on their A support, but no special ending.
* GlassCannon: Likely to end up as this, since his Defense and HP tend to be low while his Magic and Skill stand out.
* TheWoobie: His backstory makes him this. So much.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Male example.

!!Nils

A young and cute ministrel who works as a travelling performer with his beautiful older sister, Ninian. They seem to have ''really'' lousy luck, however, as a mysterious group is hell-bent into capturing them for Gods-know-what purposes. After they rescue Ninian, they stay with the group until Lyndis reclaims her place in Caelin, then they leave quietly... and are soon back to their runaway status, due to their mysterious past and link to the group, named Black Fang.

[[spoiler: Said past is what follows: Nils and Ninian are the offspring of a dragon woman and a human man. During The Scouring, their mother Aenir was taken away and their dad went missing in search of her, so they crossed the Dragons's Gate with their people. However, they were summoned back by a mysterious man - Nergal, the lead of the organization that wants them.]]

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* CuteShotaroBoy
** [[spoiler: ReallySevenHundredYearsOld]]
* BreakTheCutie
* DistressedDude: Not his fault, he's just a kid [[spoiler: and his dragon energy was all sapped away when he and his sister Ninian came to this world.]]
* FragileSpeedster: His resistence to direct hits isn't exactly the best. On the other hand, he's got such high Speed and Luck that it's VERY hard to hit him.
* [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrids (His and Ninian's mom was Aenir, a dragon woman. Their dad was a human shaman... Nergal.]]
* [[spoiler: IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight (to the BrainwashedAndCrazy Ninian. Easily the boy's CrowningMomentOfAwesome)]]
* IllBoy: In ''Kinship's Bond'', he has a huge seizure and must be protected.
* [[spoiler: [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Shaman's Cute Son.]] ]]
* SpoonyBard: His MagicMusic lets you have an extra turn.
** StatusBuff: Once he [[spoiler: replaces Ninian]], he gets to use some spiffy rings to enhance your statuses.
* TheWoobie: Poor, ''poor'' kid.

!!Wallace

A loud, brash, and very strong knight who was the long-time commander of the Caelin Knights. He retired some time ago to work on his farm, but Lundgren tried to rope him into serving him and killing Lyn. Upon meeting her, though, he decides to do the right thing and stay with her crew...

* TheBigGuy
* BadassBoast: "AHAHAHAHAHA! Look! A giant walks among you! Come on! Break your weapons against me!"
* BaldOfAwesome
* BloodKnight: A heroic version.
* BoisterousBruiser
* CallToAgriculture
* CharacterAlignment: NeutralGood, as seen in his supports with Lyn and Kent. According to these convos he used to be LawfulGood, until [[spoiler: he chose to let Madelyn elope with Hassar rather than tearing both of their hearts by forcibly taking her back to Caelin.]]
* FourStarBadass
* LargeHam
* LightningBruiser
* NoSenseOfDirection
* RetiredBadass: Had left the Caelin military to live peacefully in the countryside, then joined Lyn's group.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Why he's more Neutral than Lawful, but undeniably Good.
* TenMinuteRetirement: Lyn's actions called him back into service, and he found then that he still enjoyed fighting. He spent another year looking for fights before he finally settled down for good after Nergal's defeat.
* TookALevelInBadass: According to his supports with [[spoiler: Renault]], he was a CuteShotaroBoy as a kid and even bullied because of that. And 30 years later, he's a HUGE Badass.
* ThreeAmigos: With [[spoiler: Lyn's parents, in his backstory]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: His supports with [[spoiler: Renault]] say he's just 40! Really!

!!Bartre

* AnAxeToGrind
* BoisterousBruiser
* BookDumb
* CharacterExaggeration: Has something of a reputation for it in fanfiction, unfortunately - while Bartre's not the brightest character, he's not as stupid as some people would [[FlanderiSation make him out to be]].

--> '''Guy:''' When I see a woman in need, I just want to help. That’s the way we are, back in Sacae!
* [[spoiler: FridgeHorror: In his supports with Karel, he says they'll have one last fight after everything is over, and Guy's ending says that he went on to be known as the Saint Of Swords. But in ''Fuuin'', Karel appears, clearly changed by some dramatic event...and carrying Guy's title... OUCH!]]
* GlassCannon: Due to his low defense... look at him wrong and he falls dead. But if he looks at ''you'' wrong, expect a Critical and for ''you'' to fall dead.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Matthew
* {{Keet}}: A more subdued version.

* DistressedDude
* LargeHam: To a degree, as whenever he cries he's ''very'' expressive.

!!Lady Priscilla of Carleon [[spoiler: Alias Lady Priscilla of Cornwell.]]

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise: Before leaving home with the Carleons as a little girl, her brother Raymond gave her this. Since she hero-worships him, she intended to make him fulfill it.
** BrotherSisterIncest: More straight-up example in the Elibe saga.
* DamselInDistress: In the beginning, she and Erk were locked in a Laus village when she turned Darin's marriage proposal down. Erk manages to escape and you can recruit him with Serra, then you have to go down to the village to get her.
** BadassDamsel: She kept turning the proposals down once and again, and as soon as you meet her she immediately offers to use her staves handling skills to help the group in exchange for safety.
* DieForOurShip ''and'' RealWomenNeverWearDresses: A girly girl? A female KidAnova? She wanted to marry her brother and still kinda wants so? OMG HOW DARE SHE.
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: A white feather

* PluckyGirl: Very, ''very'' stubborn when an idea gets into her head.
--> [[spoiler: '''Raven''' ]]: You...were always like this, though, weren’t you? So gentle at most times, until you got an idea in your head -- then you wouldn’t budge, no matter what people said.
* SpoiledSweet: Really hates it when people avoid her because of her status, and insists to be treated like a normal person.
--> '''Priscilla ''' (to [[spoiler: Heath]]): You promised! You said you’d come visit me whenever you were hurt! Are you someone who so easily breaks a promise? Claiming you did not know my rank is no excuse! What...What about my feelings...? ...

* WomanInWhite
* TheWoobie: The poor girl is a ''magnet'' for melancholy.

!!Raven [[spoiler: alias Lord Raymond of Cornwell]]

* {{Badass}}
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticNeutral --> ChaoticGood

* JerkAss --> JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[spoiler: LongLostSibling: To Priscilla]]
* NotInThisForYourRevolution

!!Canas

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* DarkIsNotEvil
* [[DeadLittleSister Dead Three Older Brothers]]: They're not ''dead'', but well... see FateWorseThanDeath.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: To a lesser extent than some, but Canas is still remembered fondly by many fans of the game for his atypical personality and usefulness on the battlefield.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Canas has lost most of his family to the practice of dark magic: His older brothers have all been rendered {{EmptyShell}}s by going too far into it.
* GameBreaker: On his own, he's a powerful mage. But since he's the only character besides Athos that can use the devastatingly powerful Luna Tome...
* [[spoiler: [[HotDad Hot]] DisappearedDad]]
* HighClassGlass
* InsistentTerminology: One of the few who points out that it's ''ancient'' magic, thank you very much.

--> "I'm Dart! Leader of Captain Fargus's Suicide Squad! (...) Now who do you want me to take care of?!"
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood
* HotBlooded
* GlassCannon: Shitty defense and magic resistence, alongside absurdly high strength and crit ratio. Promote him and give him nice supports, and he becomes a OneManArmy.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Fargus, his Captain and boss.
* [[spoiler: LongLostSibling: To Rebecca.]]
* {{Pirate}}: Type 2
* [[spoiler: TraumaGuidedAmnesia]]

!!Fiora

* BigSisterInstinct: Is a borderline MyBelovedSmother to her baby sister Florina.
* BirdsOfAFeather: One of Kent's two love interests, and noted by fans and her sisters to be almost exactly like him in personality.
** OppositesAttract: On the other hand, Fiora can also be one of the few women Sain gets together with for real.
* BladeOnAStick
** HotChickWithASword: Upon promotion
* BrokenBird: Due to her guilt upon losing her wingmates and her bad relationship with Farina. She gets better, fortunately.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* LadyOfWar
* FailureKnight: Lost all of her wingmates in a mission, then became a borderline DeathSeeker. Florina manges to talk her out, though she still feels guilty; Pent and Eliwood have to reassure her about it.
* PromotiontoParent: Had to raise Farina and Florina.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Less obvious than in other cases, but still there in regards to her love and devotion to her sisters.
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Legault

* BiTheWay: Possibly, if his supports with Heath are an indication
** Let's not forget what he says to [[spoiler: Morph!Lloyd]]:
--> '''Legault''': "Huh, even as a monster, you are a handsome one, [[spoiler: Lloyd]]"
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral --> ChaoticGood
* DeadpanSnarker: If he's not bisexual as noted above, then he's ''very'' sarcastic.
--> '''Legault:''' So now I’m your new hobby, is that it? You falling for me?
--> '''Matthew:''' I’m not in the mood for your jokes.
* [[spoiler: DefectorFromDecadence: Was a witness to the Black Fang's downfall ''and'' was very unhappy after being forced to ShootTheDog, thus he decided to loot them and run away. That's when you find it and get him.]]
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* [[spoiler: ShootTheDog: In his supports with Matthew, he tells him about having to kill a Black Fang ActionGirl named Aesha when she was injured and crippled. That crossed his GodzillaThreshold, and soon he left the Fang.]]
* StarCrossedLovers: If he supports up with Isadora, it's mentioned in their ending that their next meeting after the war was as enemies.
* StoicWoobie: He looks like an easygoing dude, but his supports with people like Matthew, Jaffar, Isadora and Nino give a huge insight on the broken man he is underneath.
* TroubledButCute

!!Ninian

** SpoonyBard: When she fully joins in, her dances lets you have an extra turn.
*** StatusBuff: She also gets to use some spiffy rings to enhance your statuses.
* FragileSpeedster: Her resistence to direct hits isn't exactly the best. On the other hand, she's got such high Speed and Luck that it's VERY hard to hit her.
* [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrids (Her and Nils's mom was Aenir, a dragon woman. Their dad was a human shaman... Nergal.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice (Telling Nergal "TakeMeInstead!" to protect Nils equals as this because of the ''fatal'' consequences.)]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Blames herself because of [[spoiler: Elbert's death]], and the fact that she's [[spoiler: half dragon ''and'' has a crush on Elbert's son]] doesn't help either.
* [[spoiler: [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Shaman's Beautiful Daughter.]] ]]
* MeaningfulName: "Ninian" is one of the most popular names given to the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian myths (Others being "Vivian" and "Nimue").
* MysteriousWaif

* PromotionToParent: In regards to Nils, since [[spoiler: their dragon mom was kidnapped and never heard of again, and their human dad is... [[BigBad well]]...]]

!!Heath

* MoneyDearBoy: Her main interest is to have lots of bucks [[spoiler: to pay for the debt Fiora got because of her.]]
* OppositesAttract: While two of her endings put her with more HotBlooded guys, she can also end up with Kent...even though Kent is almost exactly like the big sister she just can't seem to get along with despite her best efforts.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Kent, Dart and Hector.

!!Pent

* BattleCouple ''and'' HappilyMarried: To Louise
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* ModestRoyalty: Upon meeting the tactician, he'll immediately tell them to not care for his status as the Mage General of Etruria.
* OneManArmy: On "The Living Legend", Pent appears as an NPC and fights the enemies on the map. If left to his own devices, Pent will ''demolish'' everything in his way, including the bosses. He's still good when he joins you for real too.

* HeroicSacrifice: Was not only willing to get himself killed to let Nino escape from the Black Fang, but [[spoiler: when Matthew (falsely) tells him that he's got Nino as a hostage, he decides to let him go through his {{Revenge}} for Leila if it meant Nino would be safe. Matt ultimately backs off.]]
* {{Kuudere}}: Thanks to Nino.
* IWillProtectHer: For Nino, he will die and kill. Lampshaded by Legault and himself:
-->'''Legault:''' You’ve gotten soft, Angel of Death. If someone held Nino hostage, you’d throw down your sword. You were the strongest assassin around. Now, you have a fatal chink in your armor. You’ve become human, but that makes you less perfect. Someday...you’ll die. No doubt trying to protect the girl.

!!Renault

* TheAtoner
* BadassGrandpa

* [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Grandpa What Massive Hotness You Have]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler: the death of his partner and best friend pushed him over the edge.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Hates himself throughly for all of his terrible sins, like [[spoiler: having killed Lucius's dad and collaborating with Nergal's research.]]
* [[spoiler: ReallySevenhundredYearsOld]]
* [[spoiler: StarCrossedLovers: With Isadora, if they A support. Their paired ending says that she left knighthood and became an Elimine cleric while searching for him.]]
* TierInducedScrappy: People dislike how "weak" the character is, given that his magic stat is astoundingly low compared to Serra or Lucius's by that point in the game. His equipment is useful, though.

!!Athos

* BadassGrandpa: Most powerful magic user in the game, and [[spoiler: more than 1000 years old as one of the two surviving heroes of the legends.]]
* [[spoiler: CainAndAbel (with Negal.)]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood
* [[spoiler: DiedInYourArmsTonight (Hector's)]]
* WizardBeard: A truly impressive one.

!!Mark
* AmbiguousGender: His sprite
* DemotedToExtra: Appears and is mentioned less and less nearly the middle and last quarter of the game, but lessened a bit at the very end. Yes, Fire Emblem managed to [[MindScrew render the]] ''[[MindScrew player him/herself]]'' [[MindScrew to be of minimal importance to the overall plot.]]

!!Nergal
->''“I am who I am. The pain of others, I do not feel. The sorrow of others does not touch me. Death feeds me. Death pleases me. I am the essence I consume. You fools will become corpses here, because I wish it to be.”''
-->-- '''Nergal'''

This [[EvilSorcerer Dark Druid]] is the ''de facto'' head of the Black Fang, the [[TheManBehindTheMan puppetmaster behind the scenes]] keeping all the other villains in line. About as mysterious as they come and just as powerful, Nergal has grand ambitions [[spoiler: to bind Dragons to his control]], but to realize them, he needs vast amounts of "[[LifeEnergy Quintessence]]," and to gain that, he intends to cause vast amounts of death and destruction. Striking up an alliance with the mad Lord Darin of Laus, and accompanied at all times by his creations, the [[HumanoidAbomination Morphs]], he has set the stage for a war that will provide him with all the quintessence he needs.

Fairly generic BigBad fare, right? If the player is willing to go hunting for some things off the beaten path, however [[spoiler: a new picture of the Dark Druid will come into focus, that of a tragic and deeply disturbed man who believes he is serving a greater purpose...]]

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: Make sure you get those bonus chapters...]]
* AnticlimaxBoss: {{YMMV}}, but by the time you've found a way around his StoryBreakerPower, you'll have a weapon capable of killing him in two hits. He ''is'' also killing ''you'' in two hits, though, so watch out!
* [[spoiler: ArchnemesisDad]]: ''Maaaaaaaay''be...
* BigBad
* CainAndAbel: With [[spoiler: Athos, though they were simply good friends.]]
* CharacterAlignment: NeutralEvil
* DarkIsEvil
* [[spoiler: TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Athos.
* EvilSorcerer
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn]]
* [[spoiler: LoveMakesYouEvil]]
* MadScientist: A magical variation.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: He [[HannibalLecture verbally beats and pressures]] his forgotten daughter Ninian until she can't withstand it anymore and returns to her dragon form, lets her leave so that she'll return to Eliwood - who unwillingly ''kills her'' with Durandal, and then appears just so he can gloat as she dies]]. ''Ouch''!
* [[spoiler: [[LukeIAmYourFather Ninian And Nils I Am Your Father]]]]: Never outright said but heavily implied.
* StoryBreakerPower: Actually a plot point.
* [[spoiler: TragicMonster]]

!!Brendan Reed

The founder of the Black Fang and its ''de jure'' leader, Brendan, though an assassin, is a noble man who until recently targeted only corrupt nobles, and was seen as a friend to the populace of the country of Bern at large. A widower with two adult sons, he has recently married a woman much younger than himself, Sonia, and with her arrival came a certain corrupting influence in his organization, though whether he realizes it at all is anyone's guess.

* AnAxeToGrind: Signature weapon.
* AntiVillain
* BadassFamily: A patriarch thereof.
* BenevolentBoss
* BumblingDad: A very BadAss variation, but when it comes to his children, he can be quite the scatterbrain.
* AFatherToHisMen: So it's implied, if Uhai's words to Lyn are anything to go by
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has good scars across his eye and neck.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: He definitely ''seems'' much larger than Sonia, though there's no direct comparison.
* MayDecemberRomance: With Sonia [[spoiler: though it turns out she hated it.]]
* NobleDemon: Let's face it, the guy kills people for a living, but [[EvenEvilHasStandards only if they really,]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards really]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards deserve it.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Nino, so much that she called him 'Father' even though he only was through marriage to Sonia [[spoiler: and even then, he wasn't]].
* UglyGuyHotWife: Again, with Sonia. It's made readily apparent to the player that they're as different as night and day.
** Noteworthy in that ''he's'' the more moral individual of the two - usually it's depicted the other way around (if at all).
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought: As a human, anyway ...]]
* UnwittingPawn
* WorthyOpponent
* [[spoiler: YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Sonia does this to him]].

!!Sonia Reed

Called "[[BadassNickname The Queen of the Four Fangs]]," Sonia is Brendan's second wife, [[MayDecemberRomance almost disturbingly younger than he]]. This is, in fact, among the ''least'' disturbing things about this woman, for she is actually one of Nergal's dark servants, and the go-between between the Dark Druid and the Fang proper. She is a skilled manipulator and an even better magician, and rumors say she holds more power over the Fang than even Brendan himself...

At the time she married Brendan, Sonia already had a daughter of her own, Nino, who idolizes her mother and [[WellDoneSonGuy ceaselessly tries to make her proud]].

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: If you don't see her ultimate fate as delightfully ironic, you'll probably see it as this.]]
* AnIcePerson: Her signature spell, Fimbulvetr.
** PsychoElectro: Her ''other'' signature spell. [[DeathFromAbove GODDAMNED BOLTING!]]
* [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: No matter how hard she denies it.]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil.
* CompleteMonster: She has a quality or two that could be seen as, if not sympathetic, then somewhat pitiable, but she's at least on the brink of this.
* DarkMagicalGirl ''and'' DarkActionGirl
* EvilMatriarch
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: Is she ever!
** BuxomBabe: Only Vaida comes close.
** HotMom
** OfCorsetsSexy
** ShesGotLegs
** TallDarkAndBishoujo
** WomanInBlack
* {{Expy}}: Possibly, of Queen Hilda from [[FireEmblemJugdral Seisen No Keifu]]. They're both TallDarkAndBishoujo {{Dark Action Girl}}s who lust for power, have no regard for human lives, and are ''major'' bitches to innocent persons (Nino, in Sonia's case; [[spoiler: Tiltyu and Tinny, or Ethnia and Linda]], in Hilda's)
* [[spoiler: HumanoidAbomination]]
* MoralityPet: Nino. [[spoiler: Not.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: Her treatment of [[spoiler: Nino]], specially when she [[spoiler: bribes the girl into accepting a suicide mission by promising she'll give her a hug after all the years of neglect.]]
** And then we learn about [[spoiler: her and Nergal killing Nino's biological family all those years ago, especially since they'd ''already'' divulged their secrets to her.]]
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Well, she ''claims'' to have one...
* [[spoiler: OffingTheOffspring: Tries to pull the aforementioned Morality License as justification for this one. Jaffar (and presumably the player) don't buy it.]]
* TheScrappy: Her HateDom is large even considering she's a villain; {{Fanon}} tends to make her out as some sort of sexual deviant (which seems par the course fore Scrappies for this game.)
** Doesn't help that she constantly abuses button-cute little [[TheWoobie Nino]], not at all...
* SmugSnake: She ''is'' very manipulative and cool-headed, as well as a very powerful magic user... but her arrogance is such that, by metaphorically punting Nino around, she gains a powerful enemy in Nino's partner Jaffar, ''and'' her plans crumble systematically until [[spoiler: she's left to die by Limstella.]]
** Not to mention she continually insults Limstella herself, [[TooDumbToLive despite the fact Limstella is much more powerful than she is.]]
* [[spoiler: TomatoIntheMirror: Sonia didn't know she was a Morph, and Limstella swiftly tells her that before abandoning her to her luck.]]
* {{Ubermensch}}: What she sees herself as. [[spoiler: She's about as wrong as you can get.]]
* [[spoiler: WhatHappenedToTheMouse[=/=]BolivianArmyEnding: Last seen badly wounded and abandoned by her associates, nothing is ever developed beyond this, oddly.]]
** [[spoiler: Her fate is [[DeathByIrony very]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness clear]] however, if you skip the Gaiden mission you fight her in.]]
* [[spoiler: YouHaveFailedMeForTheLastTime: If the player skips the Gaiden mission she's fought in, Nergal kills her himself for being weak enough to take a serious wound at Brendan's hand, along with allowing the entire situation in Bern to collapse. If the player does not skip the mission and fights her, Limestella arrives in time to take the Quintessence that the badly wounded Sonia had collected, and then simply leaves her where she is to die.]]

!!Ephidel

Nergal's faithful retainer, [[EvilChancellor disguised as Lord Darin's faithful retainer]]. Ephidel is the architect of Nergal's scheme to engulf the country of Lycia in war and Gather all the resulting Quintessence for himself. In fact, Ephidel owes his very existence to the Quintessence, as he is a Morph, an ArtificialHuman created from Quintessence to do Nergal's dirty work. Ephidel largely keeps to the shadows, planting ideas in Darin's head and making sure all the pieces are set in place for the reckoning.

* AffablyEvil: The condescending, manipulative sort.
* ArtificialHuman
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* CompleteMonster: One, Two, Three, Four! Four! Four MoralEventHorizon crossings, [[SesameStreet ah ah ah!]]
* TheCorrupter: Corrupted Lord Darin, managed to make some leeway with Lord Helman ...
* EvilChancellor
* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Gold Eyes Take Warning]]: Lampshaded by Leila.
* [[spoiler: HoistByHisOwnPetard: He led the Dragon invocation, so when it fails thanks to Nils de-brainwashing Ninian, the dragon crumbles and kills Ephidel.]]
* HumanoidAbomination
* TheManBehindTheMan
* ManipulativeBastard
* MoralEventHorizon: If you don't hate him when he stabs Lord Helman, and you don't hate him when he stabs [[spoiler: Lord Hausen]], you'll ''definitely'' hate him when he [[spoiler: has poor Leila slaughtered, then has her mutilated corpse posed to look like it's still alive, ''just to mock you''.]]
* SmugSnake: At least Sonia is powerful and all, he doesn't even have that.
** [[spoiler: He could be, we just never got to see him in action.]]
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought: Much to the chagrin of players who wanted Matthew to gut him. He still gets his KarmicDeath, though.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Dishes these out in spades.

!!Limstella

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* ArtificialHuman
* AmbiguousGender: It was intended that Limstella be more androgynous to the point that there'd be no discernable gender, but the name and the "female Sage" sprite - among other things - has players generally accepting the character as female.
* DarkMagicalGirl
* EmotionlessGirl
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* KickTheDog: Poor [[spoiler: Lloyd and Linus]]
** KickTheSonOfABitch: But in [[spoiler: Sonia]]'s case...
* UndyingLoyalty: To Nergal.

!!The Four Fangs

The brotherhood's four best killers and ranking officers below Brendan and Sonia. The roster rotates depending on the skill of the members, but has at one time or another included:

!!!Jaffar

The Fang's "Angel of Death" and its single best assassin, a child Jaffar was found AtopAMountainOfCorpses by Negal, who raised him to know nothing else but killing. Throughout the story, he handles the Fang's dirtiest jobs and nastiest [[KickTheDog dog-puntings]], including [[spoiler: the murder of Leila]]. [[HitmanWithAHeart But is he all bad?]] See "Main characters" for the answer!

* BadAss: BIG TIME.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Angel of Death.

!!!Lloyd Reed

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* AntiVillain
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral
* [[spoiler: DeathSeeker: If fought in "Cog of Destiny" - his aim is to first kill the people he believes killed Linus, and then join his brother in death]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Though a lesser one, he still appears to be the most popular Fang in fandom.
* Foil: To Eliwood, in a sense.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: If fought in "Cog of Destiny", he's perfectly willing to die since he didn't want to continue living without his brother]].
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam (if Limstella kills him)]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother
* NobleDemon: Will not allow innocents to be harmed even while hunting his targets.
* RedOniBlueOni, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan ''and'' SiblingYinYang: With Linus
* TheStoic
* TranquilFury

!!!Linus Reed

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]
* AntiVillain
* BadassNormal
* BloodKnight
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticNeutral
* Foil: To Hector, in a sense.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: If fought in "Cog of Destiny" - he wasn't seeking death but was still just glad to join Lloyd]].
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceDoorSlam (if Limstella kills him)]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold (Genuinely cares for his family, save for Sonia)
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Little Brother]]
* NobleDemon: Will not allow innocents to be harmed even while hunting his targets.
* RedOniBlueOni, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan ''and'' SiblingYinYang: With Lloyd
* [[spoiler: RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In "Cog of Destiny"]].

!!!Ursula

This woman, nicnkamed "the Blue Crow", is the only female among the four Fangs. She is a coldly-efficient magic user who is under the direct orders of Sonia Reed, whom she's very loyal to.

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: Even if she was a cold bitch, the fact that Ursula was still thinking of her lady of liege of sorts as she was about to die is somewhat touching for some.]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* DarkMagicalGirl
* EnemyMine: A very minor case, but Ursula doesn't like Vaida and gives you an incredibly useful staff on the promise you'll humiliate her. Which you do.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: If she isn't already beyond words from the heroes defeating her, Ursula calmly accepts her fate at Limstella's hands.
* FemmeFatale: Beautiful, well-endowed... and damn deadly.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Ursula appears to be unaware of the divide between Nergal's faction and the Reed's within the fang, and is implied to have been with the fang since before Sonia. She never questions it, however, since she worships Sonia.
* PlayingWithFire: Has an Elfire tome.
** PsychoElectro: And [[DeathFromAbove a GODDAMNED BOLTING!]]
** BlowYouAway: Replaces Elfire with Excalibur [[spoiler: as a Morph.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Sonia, arguably a SubordinateExcuse for some.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* WakeUpCallBoss: FUCKING BOOOOOOOOLTING!

!!!Jerme

The Fang's "Death Kite," he ''used'' to be the organization's single best assassin, before Jaffar's arrival cost him that lofty position and his Four Fangs title. Though still maintaining a high position in the Fang, his demotion has made him bitter, and he is eager to prove himself to the leadership by any means necessary. A bloodthirsty sociopath, he has an unhealthy obsession with cutting things, and his sword, the Light Brand, can deal death up close and from far away.

* AxCrazy: ''Knife'' crazy.
* BloodKnight: With very little emphasis on 'knight' and plenty more emphasis on 'blood'. Lots and ''lots'' of blood.
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* CompleteMonster: What he says to Lyn upon first seeing her really clinches it.
-->'''Lyndis:''' Eliwood! There's no reason to treat with that mad man!! We must find the exit...
-->'''Jerme:''' You! Woman! You have beautiful skin. If I sliced you into lovely red ribbons with this, would the pieces be as soft and delicate as silk?
--->'''Lyndis:''' You...
* KnifeNut
* NightmareFuel
* OneSceneWonder: Despite only appearing in one chapter, he's very unsettling and unforgettable. [[spoiler: He ''does'' appear again in the final chapter, but as a silent morph]].
* {{Squick}}

!!!Pascal Grentzer
He was once part of the Four Fangs, known as the "Crazed Beast", but was imprisoned due to his ruthlessness. Sonia frees him and promises to restore him to his rank if he succeeds in killing the lords. He is known as the Crazed Beast because he once invited his entire city population into his castle, and proceeded to slaughter them all to ensure that one person was killed.

* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* CompleteMonster: He invited his ENTIRE city population just to ensure ONE person was killed and slaughtered them all.
* PaletteSwap: Of Bauker... who happens to be an AntiVillain.
* RedBaron: Known as the "Crazed Beast"

!!Heintz
The first ranking member of the Black Fang encountered by Lyn's party, Heintz is a Shaman sent to retrieve the wayward Nils, who had escaped Nergal's clutches with his sister. He seems to hold a very low opinion of the concept of heroism, deriding as stupidly idealistic any attempt to hinder his designs. He and his men are aware of Nergal's influence in the Fang, and appear to hold loyalty to him rather than Brendan.

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* DarkIsEvil
* GenreBlind: Is apparently quite unaware that he is in one of the more [[SlidingScaleofIdealismVersusCynicism idealistic]] Fire Emblem games.
* KilledMidSentence
* MemeticMutation: Insert your Ketchup jokes here.
* WakeUpCallBoss: While still rather simple (you're still on the tutorial, after all), he's noticeably more deadly than the mere bandits you've faced so far.

!!Beyard
The controller of the group sent to recapture Nils and Ninian following their first escape (and thus probably Heintz's supervisor), Beyard reports to Ursula of the Four Fangs. A deeply unhappy man, he lives in constant fear of [[YouHaveFailedMe failing the Fang]]. He confronts Lyn's group when they track Ninian's treasured ring to his fortress, and is given one last chance to kill them by Ursula.

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]
* TooDumbToLive: From a gameplay perspective. There is absolutely no reason he shouldn't move, but he doesn't.
* YouHaveFailedMe: His greatest fear. [[spoiler: He ends up doing this to ''himself''.]]

!!Wire
A member of the Black Fang in service to Nergal, he led a few troops in a failed attempt to assasinate Hector during his sneaking-out attempt at the start of Hector's story. Annoying at his theatrics, Hector dispatched him fairly quickly.

* BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* SmugSnake

!!Boies
The first member of the Black Fang Eliwood encounters on his quest, Boies is one of Ephidel's men and seems to enjoy his job a bit too much. His assignment is to stop Eliwood and company from reaching the city of Santaruz, a job he treats as a macabre game of cat and mouse. He is not above involving innocents in his conflicts, employing bandits to pillage the area surrounding Castle Santaruz.

* [[BaldOfEvil Bald]] ''and'' BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil
* EvilLaugh
** AnnoyingLaugh: "Gya ha ha!"
* JerkAss
* MightyGlacier
* ViolentGlaswegian: Not literally, obviously, but he talks like one, at least.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Probably the first Eliwood's story boss that's killing you in two hits. He can be a source of nasty surprises for new players.

!!Damian
->''“You're about to die. Scream if you must.”''
-->-- '''Damian'''

The Fang member sent to intercept Eliwood's group at Badon to prevent them from getting a boat to the Dread Isle, where Nergal is located. Damian is cold and doesn't display much personality, which makes him seem perhaps the most "assassin-like" of the minor Fang members.

* AlasPoorVillain: Arguably
* BeardOfEvil
* BonusBoss: Unless you're playing Hector's story, you don't actually have to fight him. The reward for beating him, however is access to [[GameBreaker the Arena...]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* PaletteSwap: Of Wire.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Are you ''sure'' you really need that Arena?

!!Zoldam
The Fang member sent to retrieve Ninian after she escapes from Nergal's clutches at the Dragon's Gate, Zoldam pursues Ninians small boat with two ships full of Black Fang members, boarding the ''Davros'', with the party aboard, after they pick up Ninian. Like many other Fang members, Zoldam is icy in personality, and coldly orders the death of everyone on the ship apart from Ninian.

* BeardOfEvil
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil, though more evil than lawful.
* DarkIsEvil
* GameBreaker: Carries the all-powerful Luna magic...
** BreatherBoss: ...though he's still simple if you go after him with physical attacks.

!!Uhai
->''“Holding a woman hostage during battle is shameful. You, too, are of Sacae, and I've a mind to show you mercy. I will let you die with a sword in your hands. But rest assured... I will kill you all here. But be of good cheer! In dying, you shall all be spared the calamity that is to come!”''
-->-- '''Uhai'''

An honorable, high-ranking member of the Fang, and one of the Fang members closest to Brendan Reed's ideology. He is one of the nomads of Sacae, and as such he is an honest person who only does evil when it is necessary. Upon attacking the party, he finds something of a kindred spirit in Lyn, whom he holds hostage to get Eliwood and Hector's attention, but then releases, as he finds threatening a woman to be against his code of honor. [[spoiler: Upon his defeat, he recognizes the party as [[WorthyOpponent worthy opponents]], and points them to the Dragon's Gate]].

* AntiVillain
* TheArcher
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* EvenEvilHasStandards: See his quote
* TheFatalist: The reason why he joined Black Fang.
* {{Nakama}}: He regarded the Black Fang as such before their corruption - Legault's support conversations imply Uhai was friends with him, as well as with the Reeds and Jan.
* NobleDemon: The best example in the Black Fang.
* RedBaron: "Soaring Hawk"
* WorthyOpponent: Regarded the opposition as such when they killed him, motivating him to [[spoiler: give them directions to the Dragon's Gate]]. Eliwood and Lyn considered him as such due to his honourable nature, as did Hector (though somewhat grudgingly so).
* WouldntHitAGirl: He would, but only if fighting against her.

!!Aion
The Black Fang's "Owl", tasked with guarding the entrance to the Dragon's Gate.

* [[spoiler: BroughtDownToNormal]]
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* TheChessmaster: Well, he tries to be this.
* FantasticRacism: Towards Sacaens, apparently. See PaletteSwap, below.
* PaletteSwap: Of Marquess Araphen. Many fans have theorised that he may in fact ''be'' the Marquess, considering their shared FantasticRacism - however, he has no battle conversations with Lyn, Kent or Sain, so this is somewhat in doubt.
* SmugSnake
* ThisCannotBe: His reaction when [[spoiler: Kishuna]] shows up.

!!Kenneth
The Fang's "Shrike", a man who gave up his faith in the gods - who he believes to be lies fabricated by mankind - to worship Nergal, who he considers the closest thing to a God the world has. Trusted by Sonia, he possessed the rare and powerful Light tome, Aura.

* AffablyEvil: Very courteous and polite. And an asshole.

!!Maxime

* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* TheDragon: To Ursula
* FlatCharacter
* SuicidalOverconfidence: Tries to attack Jaffar immediately, and is very likely to die just as fast.
* TheWorfEffect: Technically we don't know whether or not he's actually all that badass, but he is a named, non-faceless Paladin (a fairly solid promoted class overall, more or less TheMario among class) who more or less serves the purpose of being ''destroyed'' by Jaffar, most likely to demonstrate that Jaffar can handle himself as long as his Killing Edge lasts.

!!Denning

* TheArcher
* BrokenRecord: "This is a message from Lord Nergal..."
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* EnsembleDarkhorse
* WakeUpCallBoss: The map is designed so it is difficult to bumrush him, and gives him an easy opportunity to snipe at you with impunity.
** WeaksauceWeakness: On the other hand, if you ''do'' manage to bumrush him and surround him, with nobody next to the people surrounding him, the battle is already decided with his defeat, provided you don't move.

!!Kishuna
A mysterious man in a red cloak who appears periodically should certain paths be taken throughout the game. He has the mysterious ability to negate all magic in a rather large vicinity of himself. He is actually [[spoiler: the first Morph created with emotions, who was rejected by Nergal, his creator.]]

!!Lord Darin of Laus

* AGodAmI
* AlasPoorVillain: Even after all he's done, it's not hard to pity him when he's mortally wounded, in shock over his death and desperately calling for Ephidel to help him, trying to reassert his position. It becomes even easier when Nils reveals how Ephidel essentially corrupted him to his current actions.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulEvil
* ClimaxBoss
* DirtyOldMan: Poor Priscilla...
* DrivenToMadness: He ''was'' [[JerkAss arrogant and unpleasant]], but loyal to Lycia prior to his involvement with the Fang. Erik confirms this when captured and interrogated.

The boss of Lyn mode Chapter 1. He is a bandit sent by Lord Lundgren to kill Lyndis. Him calling Lyndis by her full name is what clues her in, in regards to Lundgren.

!!Glass
->''“I am Glass! The gods fear my name! My swordplay is peerless!”''
-->-- '''Glass'''

The boss of Lyn mode Chapter 2. He and his group of bandits try to steal the Mani Katti from its scabbard, but is stopped by Lyn and her companions.

[[folder: The Eight Legends]]

1000 years ago, there was a huge war between humans and dragons known as the Scouring. Mankind won this battle, but mainly thanks to the efforts of eight warriors.
