[[folder: Main Characters]]

!!Prince Leif of Leonster
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leif776_2018.png
->'''Class:''' Lord
The main character of the game. Son of Quan and Ethlyn and Prince of Leonster.
----
* CantCatchUp: He is brought down by both his mediocre base stats, and relatively low stats growth. And it is really easy to get him to level 20 thanks to the limited amount of units in the early stages, and his late arrival promotion bonus is mediocre. However, his massive amount of support bonuses and ability to ignore the fatigue mechanic means he can be very useful in his own right.
* DiscOneNuke: If you give him the shield, life, and speed rings that you acquired during the first three chapters, Leif will become the strongest unit in the team during Manster, and is essentially a CrutchCharacter in his own right, thanks to the Res hitting Light Sword, and is a capable unit up until his promotion. This is quite a solid investment, since you don't have access to your CrutchCharacter (except Eyvel for a very short time) and Manster is arguably the toughest part of the game.
* TheHero
** HumbleHero
* KingIncognito: He's been forced to spend most of his life in hiding, because neither Travant nor Grannvale would be happy with the legitimate heir threatening their control of the Thracian peninsula.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Has some self-worth problems, which are understandable considering his backstory.
* ManInWhite
* RedBaron: Sage-Lord

!!Finn
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fin776_5882.png
->'''Class:''' Lance Knight

A Knight of Leonster who once served Quan and is Leif's guardian.
----
* {{Badass}}
* DiscOneNuke: Good base stats and Brave Lance turns him into a good capturing unit and a deadly fighter during outdoor chapters, he has a nice HP to boot to fight against the fatigue mechanic, and he has decent enough weapon rank to use some of the better swords during indoor chapters, AND he has a Leadership Star. The only reason he is not that good late game is because the late game chapters are filled by Status Staves and Magic users, and even then he can contribute by having a Leadership Star.
** CrutchCharacter: Interesting to note that he is as close as you can get to a Jeigan Archetype if not for being unpromoted and his decent stats progression.
* FragileSpeedster: His Prayer ability increases his evasion when he is low on health, and his personal weapon, the Brave Lance, allows him to Double Attack, and increases his luck by 10. He also has a Leadership Star. Coupled with supports from Leif and Nanna (which increase his evasion further) and he can be almost unkillable, even at base stats.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Leif.
* OlderAndWiser: Has grown quite a bit from his Seisen days.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Lampshaded by Selfina and Leif. She reprimands him for being much colder than he used to be, but Leif later says he's just forgotten how to cry after all the shit that hit the fan.
* TeamDad

!!Orsin
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/othin776_7255.png
->'''Class:''' Axe Fighter

A hot-blooded member of the Fiana Militia. Best-friends with Halvan.
----
* AnAxeToGrind: He gets a unique one in the first map, the [[{{GameBreaker}} gamebreaking]] Pugi!
* BoisterousBruiser: Hot headed in contrast to Halvan.
* DiscOneNuke: Three words. Chapter 1 Pugi.
* LightningBruiser: Unlike most Fighters in the series, he has high HP, acceptable defense, high STR, and an almost overkill based speed with a solid speed growth. Add in Wrath and Pugi and...
* SlapSlapKiss: With Tanya.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Halvan. Halvan's laidback and calm personality contrasts with Orsin's wild and hotheaded nature.

!!Halvan
->'''Class:''' Axe Fighter

A calm and cool member of the Fiana Militia. Best-friends with Orsin.
---
* ContinuityNod: He can acquire a Brave Axe from his sister, who claimed to get it from a woman near a lake.
* DiscOneNuke: He gets the Brave Axe, which is acquired in Chapter 1.
* LightningBruiser: Despite being a slightly worse Orsin (or maybe because he is a slightly worse Orsin), he is still one of the best characters in the game.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He is essentially Orsin without Pugi and Ambush instead of Wrath, an overall worse growth than Orsin but relatively better base stats, and the Brave Axe is not a personal weapon, which means you can give it to Orsin as well. Still a good character in his own right.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Is kinda this with Orsin.

!!Eyvel
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evaylefe5_7559.png
->'''Class:''' Swordmaster

Leader of the town of Fiana and its militia: Fiana's Freeblades. [[spoiler:Is actually Briggid of Jungby]].
----
* ActionGirl
* CrutchCharacter
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: [[spoiler:As Briggid, she wore her RapunzelHair loose and with a MartialArtsHeadband. As Eyvel, her hair is shorter and in a ponytail).]]
* [[spoiler: TraumaInducedAmnesia]]: [[spoiler: As said above, she's Princess Briggid of Jungby but at some point she arrived to Fiana without any memories. Some years after the end of ''Thracia 776'', she recovers her memories and is reunited with the now adult Patty and Faval.]]
** Even more: [[spoiler:if you save her from being petrified and Finn is still alive, this triggers a conversation in which Finn ''does'' recognize her as Briggid and tells her so. However, Eyvel herself is still amnesiac and denies this.]]
* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: If you don't restore her? Have the Deadlord Draco attacking you in the Last chapter.]]
** {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:The other five Deadlords in Thracia 776 all share a class with the characters they're created from (or the second-tier class of said characters in the case of Canis and Porcus), but Draco is a ''Sniper'', not a Swordmaster.]]
* LadyOfWar
* MamaBear: Eyvel found young Mareeta locked inside a cage in a slave market; she was so pissed off to see a little girl subjected to slavery that she slaughtered all the traders and guards and promptly adopted her as her own.
* PlotArmor: [[spoiler:Until she is turned to stone in Chapter 5]], Eyvel cannot be killed. To this end, the game will cheat for you and make any attack that would kill her miss instead.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She is the leader of the small village where Nanna, Mareeta, and Leif live.
* [[spoiler:TakenForGranite: She's turned to stone in Chapter 5 and stays that way until Chapter 24x.]]
* TeamMom: For the group, specially Mareeta and Nanna.

!!Dagda
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagdarfe5_2534.png
->'''Class:''' Warrior

The leader of the Purple Dragon Mountain Bandits, albeit reformed thanks to Eyvel.
----
* BoisterousBruiser
* CrutchCharacter: Another one, his growth is almost as bad as Eyvel, but unlike Eyvel, he stays longer and is better able to capture units.
* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: Careful! Don't skip chapter 8X of he'll become Deadlord Tigris.]]
* MightyGlacier: 9 Speed is not that high, but a base of 43 HP and 10 Defense right gtom chapter 1 is MASSIVE. As a comparison, the only recruitable character who comes close to match, or outright beat his base durability are Eyrios(an optional, route locked character), Xavier(a ThatOneSidequest), and Galzus(an EleventhHourRanger). Thankfully, his speed is enough to double the majority of the underpowered enemies in this game.

!!Tanya
:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tanya776_4085.png
->'''Class:''' Bow Fighter

Dagda's daughter. Quarrels with Orsin often.
----
* ActionGirl
* {{Bokukko}}
* RaisedByDudes: Her father Dagda is a brigand and works with other brigands, so she's lived with men all of her life.
* {{Shorttank}}
* {{Tsundere}}: To Orsin.

!!Marty
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marty776_6980.png
->'''Class:''' Brigand

A member of the Purple Dragon Mountain Bandits.
----
* GentleGiant: Marty has one of the constitutions in the game and his ending even mentions his gentle nature.
* StoneWall: Marty's defense, build, and hp are really, really good. On the flipside, his Skill and speed are really, really poor.

!!Ronan
:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ronan776_1597.png
->'''Class:''' Bow Fighter

A hunter from the village of Iss. Joins the party when defending it from Pirates.
----
* {{Bishonen}}
* NaiveNewcomer
* MageKiller: Magic power and magic resistance run on the same stat in this game, so his seemingly ill-suited growth rates for his class actually make him a good anti-magic unit. Does not stop him from being hated for the most part.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Safy
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saphy_6438.png
->'''Class:''' Priest

A priestess from the Free City of Tahra.
----
* AwesomeButImpractical: A variation. Despite being a WhiteMagicianGirl, her strength is comparable to Othin's. Of course, being a Priest, she can't actually use that strength for any purpose whatsoever.
* PluckyGirl
* ProperLady: Very softspoken, but with a will of iron.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Repair Staff allows you to repair any weapon to its base condition. Essentially, it's a weapon that can turn into any weapon in the game five times.
* WhiteMagicianGirl

!!Lifis
->'''Class:''' Thief

The leader of a band of pirates who attacks villages on the coasts of eastern Thracia. A bit of a sleazeball.
----
* ButtMonkey: When talking to Salem or Pahn. Lifis [[KickTheSonOfABitch does deserve it though]].
* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: If you don't recruit him, or you get him killed? Have the Deadlord Porcus after you.]]
* JerkAss: Maybe he becomes a JerkWithAHeartofGold later, maybe....
* FragileSpeedster
* {{Pirate}}: Definitely type 2 in the beginning. Though Lifis is not of the pirate class.
* RapePillageAndBurn: You stop his men from doing this in the second chapter.
* TokenEvilTeammate -- VillainProtagonist: One of the more crooked recruitable characters.
* VillainousCrush: Lifis fancies Safy, but not enough to risk his life fighting TheEmpire.
** IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Kidnaps Safy and forces her to become his lover. The pirate says he'll fight for the people in exchange for a personal "favor" from her (hinted to be sexual), but later admits to a {{Mook}} that [[ILied he's lying]] just to get her to do his [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "favor"]].

!!Machyua
->'''Class:''' Sword Fighter

A member of the Magi Squad, an anti-Empire rebellion group.
----
* ActionGirl
* AnAxeToGrind: When a Hero.
* BattleCouple: With Brighton.
* {{Tomboy}}: Has a more masculine looking appearance compared to the other female swordfighters, and is the only one that can promote to Hero, which is typically a male-only class, and is the 2nd one of only 7/9 females in the series to use axes.

!!Brighton
->'''Class:''' Axe Knight

Another member of the Magi Squad, was formerly a Manster Knight before joining.
----
* AnAxeToGrind
* BattleCouple: Implied with Machyua, as they marry in their endings.
* CrutchCharacter: He is ''the'' guy who keeps your team alive in Manster. Post-Manster, he is still solid, but not as necessary as before.
* DefectorFromDecadence: He was once a knight of Manster, but he deserted and joined [[LaResistance the Magi Squad]] in order to change things for the better.
* MightyGlacier: Has especially high HP and Build. And with Wrath, he is really good at taking hits and dealing it in the opponent's turn.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: According to the official site, he is 23. He looks as if he was in his 30's.

!!Lara
->'''Class:''' Thief

A member of the Magi Squad, has ties to Pahn of the Dandylions.
----
* ActionGirl: To a lesser degree, as people prefer to have her as a Dancer rather than a Thief/Thief Fighter.
* FragileSpeedster
* IOweYouMyLife: To Pahn, who rescued her from being a child slave.
* MadeASlave: And hinted to have been a SexSlave as well.
* ShesGotLegs: Remarked on by the artwork.
* SpoonyBard: Can be promoted from Thief to Dancer.

!!Fergus
->'''Class:''' Free Knight

A wandering Mercenary.
----
* HeroicBastard: Beowulf's illegitimate son.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LightningBruiser: A mounted unit with swords as his main weapon, with solid stats and a Pursuit Critical Coefficient of 5 which means he can score TONS of critical hits. And later on, he can also wield the powerful Beo Sword.
* PunchClockHero
* TheDulcineaEffect: Is thrown into jail for beating up a guard who was bothering Karin.

!!Karin
->'''Class:''' Pegasus Rider

A Knight of Silesia looking for its missing prince.
----
* ActionGirl
* BladeOnAStick: Not when dismounted.
* FragileSpeedster: As a Pegasus Knight.
* SlapSlapKiss: Hinted to like Fergus despite yelling at him a lot.

!!Asvel
->'''Class:''' Mage

A mage whose grandfather was a Bishop from Frest.
----
* BlowYouAway - RazorWind: Grafcalibur
* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: To Leif.
* GlassCannon: Acceptable magic growth, massive speed growth, but he takes physical hits as well as a wet paper bag. However, not many opponents can survive his magical assault, especially with Grafcalibur.
* [[MagicalGirlWarrior Magical Boy Warrior]]
* MagikarpPower

!!Princess Nanna of Nordion
->'''Class:''' Troubadour

The Princess of Nordion, and daughter of Raquesis and Finn.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: She has blue eyes in this game instead of the brown eyes she had in ''Genealogy'', reflecting the fact that Finn is her father in this iteration of the story.
* DistressBall: What sets the action off is her and Mareeta's kidnapping. In episode 3 [[IHaveYourWife she is used as a hostage by the enemy]] so Leif will let the imperial forces take him, [[DefiantCaptive even when Nanna tells him not to do so.]]
* [[spoiler:TheHighQueen: If she makes it to the end.]]
* LadyOfWar: If well trained, after promotion.
* PluckyGirl
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to her friend Mareeta's tomboy.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: To Leif, if she makes it to the end.

A Knight of Manster with a strong love for his child.
----

* WhatTheHellPlayer: Calls the player out and doesn't join if you didn't rescue his son Maphy.

!!Shiva
->'''Class:''' Sword Fighter

A mercenary hired by Lifis' pirates.
----
* LightningBruiser: The combination of Sol, 4 PCC, base stats, and growth turns him into a good damage dealer with quite an amazing durability.
* KnightInShiningArmor: To Safy, whom he protects from Lifis's lechery.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TheStoic: Well, he follows the Navarre/Nabarl archetype after all.
* OlderSideKick: At thirty, Shiva is older than the twenty-year-old Lifis.
** TokenGoodTeammate: He's also the most moral associate of the Lifis Pirates.

!!Carrion
->'''Class:''' Social Knight

A Knight of Leonster.
----
* BladeOnAStick: Though he mainly prefers swords.
* CoolSword: And he's ''really'' good at using them. Not to mention he can get the nice Elite Sword...
** [[spoiler:TragicKeepsake: Said Sword, if he gets it from Selfina? It turns out to be the one that belonged to his DisappearedDad.]]
* KnightInShiningArmor
* MagikarpPower: Started at level 1, when your other characters have survived the Manster Prison Break. Thankfully, he can get the Elite Sword, and he has good stats, alongside a high Pursuit Critical Coefficient.
* NiceGuy
* ParentalAbandonment: Dad died in the war, mother died some time after Hannibal saved them.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Hannibal, who helped him and his mom in the war.

!!Selfina
->'''Class:''' Arch Knight

A Knight of Leonster, and the daughter of Dorias and wife of Glade.
----
* ActionGirl
* BattleCouple: With Glade.
* HorseArcher
* LadyOfWar
* TheOjou
* [[spoiler:ParentalSubstitute: Her ending mentions that she made her BigFancyHouse a refuge and training center for orphan children. That would make her known as "Mother of Thracia".]]
* SheIsAllGrownUp
-->'''Finn''': ...Well... So this is that little girl with the braids...
-->'''Selfina:''' Ten years can make a big difference. I'm now married to Glade.
* SilkHidingSteel: Very sweet and kind, but being polite doesn't make her less outspoken.
* WhatTheHellHero: To [[spoiler:Finn, in regards to Raquesis.]]
* WomanInWhite

!!Kein
->'''Class:''' Lance Knight

Another Knight of Leonster. Both of his parents died in battle.
----
* BladeOnAStick: Course, he has to switch to swords when dismounted...
* HeterosexualLifePartners and ThoseTwoGuys: With Alva.
* OrphansOrdeal
* OutOfFocus: His only lines are his escape quote and his death quote, making it possible to play through the entire game without hearing a single word out of him.

!!Alva
->'''Class:''' Lance Knight

A Knight of Leonster. Friends with Kein.
----
* BladeOnAStick: Even though he's a lance knight, he curiously has a higher rank in swords, which… ...he can only use dismounted...
* HeterosexualLifePartners and ThoseTwoGuys: With Kein
* OutOfFocus: His only lines are his escape quote and his death quote, making it possible to play through the entire game without hearing a single word out of him.

!!Robert
->'''Class:''' Arch Knight

Yet another Knight of Leonster.
----
* HorseArcher
* MagikarpPower: If well-trained.
* NamesTheSame: Shares the same name (and even a similar class) with another character from FireEmblemAkaneia.
* OutOfFocus: His only lines are his escape quote and his death quote, making it possible to play through the entire game without hearing a single word out of him.
* ShrinkingViolet: Off battle. [[{{Moe}} Girls seem to like it, according to his ending.]]

!!Fred
->'''Class:''' Paladin

A Knight of Freege and Olwen's right-hand man.
----
* BladeOnAStick / CoolSword: Being a Paladin.
* BodyguardCrush ''and'' MayDecemberRomance: With Olwen. He's "only" seven years older than her, but his ending mentions that some people made fun of him because of the age difference.
* JackOfAllStats

!!Olwen
->'''Class:''' Mage Knight

Leader of a band of Knights from Freege. Younger sister of Reinhardt.
----
* ActionGirl ''and'' LadyOfBlackMagic: She can use both Swords ''and'' Offensive Magic.
* BerserkButton: Never ''ever'' insult her older brother Reinhardt! [[spoiler:[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Kempf]] deliberately used this to give her and Fred a DistressBall.]]
* GlassCannon: Not many can survive her Daim Thunder or Holy Sword, and with Ambush, she can attack before the enemy, which is especially useful combined with Pure Waters. On the other hand, one miss and a few hits is all it take to bring her HP to zero, and Daim Thunder is EXTREMELY heavy.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Has one, the Holy Sword, which she can get by talking to Reinhardt in Chapter 22. The requirement is MUCH easier said than done.
* MagicKnight: Can use both swords and magic, as mentioned above; but contrary to Eyrios, the other recruitable character of this class, she's less balanced and more of a mounted SquishyWizard.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The poor girl has a ''severe'' HeroicBSOD like this when [[spoiler:she learns that the Freege army is conducting the child hunts.]]
-->"This... This is [[spoiler:the child hunting]]? I heard rumors, but I never thought they were actually doing it... This is terrible... Is this... Is this what my country has been doing!?"
* NaiveNewcomer: Is mocked by Kempf for being a fresh recruit in the Freege army.
* ShockAndAwe: Daim Thunder.

!!Mareeta
->'''Class:''' Sword Fighter

Eyvel's adopted daughter. The unwilling owner of the Darkness Blade.
----
* ActionGirl
* BerserkerTears: [[spoiler:When under the curse of the Darkness Blade.]]
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Via an EvilWeapon. Once she's snapped out of it, though, with some help from Saias, she "tames" the sword and makes it her WeaponOfChoice.]]
* CuteBruiser
* [[spoiler:DeathByChildbirth: What happened to her biological mom.]]
* DistressBall: What sets the action off is her and Nanna's kidnapping.
* [[spoiler:FallenPrincess: Her father Galzus was the prince of Rivough, a small kingdom invaded by Isaac.]]
* GlassCannon: Even when underlevelled, her offense is ridiculous thanks to her personal weapon.
* GoodScarsEvilscars: [[spoiler:She and Galzus have marks of Odo on their backs.]]
* ICallItVera: [[spoiler:Her non-evil anymore "Mareeta's sword".]]
* [[spoiler:LukeYouAreMyFather: How she manages to recruit Galzus in chapter 24.]]
* MagikarpPower: It takes a couple of levels to bring her up to par without relying on her personal weapon. Thankfully, she has nice stats growth.
* PluckyGirl
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Leif/Nanna, and if the three are alive by the time the Final Battle hits, she'll encourage Nanna to tell him her feelings.
-->'''Mareeta:''' "Go on, Lady Nanna! Just say it!"
-->'''Nanna:''' "B-But..."
-->'''Mareeta:''' "You'll regret it forever if you don't say it now. Or do you just want to stay as his 'cute little sister'?"
-->'''Nanna:''' "But Mareeta..."
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to her friend Nanna's girly girl.
* [[spoiler:WalkingTheEarth: In her ending.]]

!!Salem (Seiram)
->'''Class:''' Lopto Mage

A former member of the Lopto Sect. Also, the first-ever playable character in the FireEmblem series to use dark magic.
----
* EvilRedhead: Pre-HeelFaceTurn
* DarkIsNotEvil: Or better said, in his case, [[DarkIsEvil it used to be.]]
* DefectorFromDecadence: He was a former member of the Lopto church. [[spoiler:He gets better, and he writes a book about how much the Lopto church sucked in his ending.]]
* IOweYouMyLife: Pahn saved Salem's life when he was badly injured after escaping from the Lopto cult for his "treason".
* JackOfAllTrades: As far as a Magician goes, he is decent at both attacking with spell tomes and using staves.
* MeaningfulName: He's the first playable dark magic user and shares a name with a town known for {{Witch Hunt}}s.
* PoisonedWeapons: His tome Yotsmungand poisons you if it hits.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: What he told to the Lopto Church people at some point. They didn't take it well and almost killed him.

!!Pahn (Pirn)
->'''Class:''' Thief Fighter

Leader of the Dandelion Gang out of Dakia Forest.
----
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo: In his ending.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* JustLikeRobinHood
* {{Lolicon}}: Averted in his and Lara's backstory. When he realized how young Lara was, he felt very awkward upon her having to dance for him by orders of her master, and did what he could to free her.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: If he is recruited by [[TokenEvilTeammate Lifis]], then he does this to him. Seeing as how he terrorized a town, he had it coming.

!!Trewd
->'''Class:''' Sword Fighter

A member of the Dandylions.
----
* NumberTwo: To Pahn.
* PunchClockHero

!!Tina
->'''Class:''' Priest

Safy's younger sister. Was caught by Pahn and forced to stay with them.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Safy.
* MagikarpPower
* PluckyComicRelief
* SwissArmyWeapon: Thief Staff. If she has high enough magic, she can steal almost every item in the game. In practice, this translates into a weapon that can become another weapon, and a death sentence to Mooks and Bosses alike. Stock up Holy Waters and M Up Staves and you're set.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The unruly tomboy to her sister Safy's girly girl.
* [[spoiler:WalkingTheEarth: In her ending.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Or in her case, bugs.

!!Glade
->'''Class:''' Duke Knight

A Knight of Leonster and husband of Selfina and friend of Finn.
----
* BladeOnAStick: Though sadly nerfed by [[ScrappyMechanic dismounting]].
* BattleCouple and HappilyMarried: with Selfina.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Selfina, him, and Finn are a grown version of this.

!!Dean
->'''Class:''' Dragon Knight

A dragon rider from Thracia sent by Areone to protect Linoan.
----
* BodyguardCrush: He seems to have feelings for his master's fiancee Linoan, who he was entrusted to guard. She seems to like him back, [[spoiler:but they don't stay together.]]
* BladeOnAStick: Is given a unique lance, the Dragon Spear, by [[spoiler:his master Areone]].
** VendorTrash: The Dragonspear is reduced to this in the later chapters due to dismounting.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Eda, a fellow Dragon Rider, is also his little sister.
* DragonRider: The first recruitable Male Dragon Knight in the series.
* LightningBruiser: Even without the Dragon Lance, Dean has amazing stats and flies. With the Dragon Lance, he is basically a flying counterpart to Finn. And he's not bad with swords either thanks to his A rank swords.
* HumbleHero: Makes ''many'' sacrifices for his ideals and refuses to stand out among others. Lampshaded by Eda and Linoan.
* KnightInShiningArmor: To Linoan
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There was a scene planned where [[spoiler:Areone kills Dean for his relationship with Linoan]].

!!Eda
->'''Class:''' Dragon Rider

Dean's younger sister and fellow dragon rider.
----
* ActionGirl
* BladeOnAStick: Switches to swords dismounted.
* BrotherSisterTeam: She and Dean.
* DragonRider
* FragileSpeedster: She is comparable to Karin in this regard.
* UndyingLoyalty: To her lady in liege [[spoiler:Altenna]].
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Homeros (Homer)
->'''Class:''' Bard

A wandering bard who is a bit of a womanizer and lush.
----
* HandsomeLech: Nanna recruits him by ''slapping'' him when he offers her a drink.
* HealingHands: Upon promotion.
* LightEmUp: His main weapons are light tomes. But since there are few of these in Jugdral...
** BlowYouAway: If you give him Wind tomes instead, he will use them to quite the benefit of the group.
* MagikarpPower: Thankfully, he is a Mage with Elite and having Sage as his promotion. Many considered him a prime example of how to be an underlevelled character and get away with it.
* TheAlcoholic: Heavily implied, at least in his dialogue with Nanna.
* TheStoryteller and WanderingMinstrel: In his ending, which makes him famous in Jugdral.

!!Duchess Linoan of Tahra
->'''Class:''' Sister

The young woman who's in charge of the free city of Tahra. [[spoiler:Also a descendant of Heim, thus in-story she has minor Naga blood.]]
----
* ArrangedMarriage: To [[spoiler:Travant's son and Dean's master]] Areone.
* BodyguardCrush: On Dean.
* LightEmUp: She can use these, including the Resire tome, right from the start.
* NiceGirl
* MagicalGirlWarrior
* [[spoiler:MarriedToTheJob: She "never married, despite her beauty" and spent all of her time devoting herself to rebuild her hometown of Tahra.]]
* TheOjou: Type 1: kind and sweet
** SilkHidingSteel: And she's both mentally strong and powerful in the battlefield.
* WomanInWhite

!!Ralph
->'''Class:''' Hero

A mercenary against the Empire.
----
* PunchClockHero / NotInThisForYourRevolution: Joins Leif's fight against the Empire because he can't stand their tyranny.
* TheGenericGuy: Nothing is really notable about him. Despite, this he actually has dialogue during cut scenes which a couple of other characters don't even get (e.g Kein, Alva, Robert).
* WeHelpTheHelpless: The vilagers helped him and took him in, he aids them in return.

!!Eyrios
->'''Class:''' Mage Knight

A Knight of Freege. Dreams of becoming a noble.
----
* AmbitionisEvil: In his case, it's more like "Ambition makes you a JerkAss sometimes".
* BerserkButton: Hates when Karin calls him "Olson".
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Combined with DontYouDarePityMe in his recruitment conversation, in regards to his low birth.
* LightningBruiser: His stats are so massive, sometime you wonder ''why''' exactly he has to feel inferior. To clarify, he can wield any kind of swords and thunder tomes (including [[DeathFromAbove the Bolting]]), has solid offense (which can be augmented with Holy Water and Magic Swords), high speed, solid growth rate, and his defensive parameter is almost twice the durability of Olwen. And to make it better, he has the ''very'' sought after Sol and Prayer as his default skills. Put simply, having Staff is the only thing he missed from everything that make a good unit in this game.
* ShockAndAwe: Is a (really powerful) MagicKnight and his speciality is Thunder Magic.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Especially in his ending.

!!Sleuf
->'''Class:''' Priest

A priest from Edda, known as the "Eyes of Claud".
----
* {{Bishonen}}
* HolyHandGrenade
* ManInWhite
* SilkHidingSteel: RareMaleExample
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor: He has Clauds's spiit as this.]]
* WhiteMage

!!Misha
->'''Class:''' Pegasus Knight

A mercenary from Silesia who fights to earn money for orphans.
----
* ActionGirl
* DefectorFromDecadence: Joins the Army despite knowing it's not a good one, since she's taking care of the kids in an orphanage.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother Like Daughter]]: Averted. She's the daughter of [[spoiler:Deet'var]], but makes a point about how her mom's death at the hands of [[spoiler:Sigurd's group]] has nothing to do with her motivations.
* WhatTheHellHero: Is told this by Karin and August for putting the Silesian kids's needs over the whole world, though to be fair she didn't know about [[spoiler:the child hunts]].
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Sara
->'''Class:''' Sister

A strange young girl with ties to the Lopto Sect. [[spoiler:More exactly, she is the granddaughter and heir of... none other than Manfroy.]] She decides to side with Leif and his group instead.
----
* BrokenBird: One that instead of being bitter and cynical, is distracted and pretty much a...
* CloudCuckooLander:
-->Oh, are you from the Liberation Army? Did she say something to you? Please forget it. She mumbles strange things from time to time. She can be an odd girl at times.
* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: Make sure you recruit her and don't get her killed off. Or not only will you lose the chance to save Eyvel, but she'll end up as the Deadlord Canis, a MagicalGirlWarrior ''on the enemy's side'' that can pack quite the magical punch. (Okay, so you'll still fight Canis if this doesn't happen, but Sara!Canis is a lot more powerful than normal!Canis.)]]
* [[spoiler:[[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Arch Bishop's Beautiful Granddaughter]]: Manfloy is her gramps, and he killed Sara's father when her mom was pregnant with her. Sara ''despises'' him as a result.]]
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Considering she has three of the best skills in the game, she can become a deadly force in battle.
* MagikarpPower: Starts underlevelled... but with amazing staff rank, Elite, and a massive growth rate. And this is before you realize that she promotes into a Sage, one of the best classes in the game.
* MysticalWaif: She claims that she could hear Leif's voice in her mind and that's why she wants to join him.
* TheOjou: She's first seen talking to an enemy, who refers to her as "Lady Sara". This is because [[spoiler:Manfloy]] keeps her around due to her being his heir of sorts.
* SuperpowerLottery: Sorta. As said before, Sara has three skills that are ''extremely'' good when combined: Wrath (all attacks are {{Critical hit}}s when at Counter), Prayer (evades most lethal blows depending on luck), and Elite (gains double experience). She has the ability to use staves (which is a massive SuperpowerLottery when it comes to Thracia 776), and a high base staff rank. On top of it, she has VERY high Luck, Skill, Magic, and Speed, promotes into a Sage, [[spoiler:and only she can handle a '''very''' rare staff that will let you save Eyvel, and thus avert having her turned into a Dreadlord]]. [[GlassCannon If not for her low HP and Defense...]]
* WomanInWhite
* YouKilledMyFather: To [[spoiler:Manfloy]].

!!Princess Miranda of Alster
->'''Class:''' Mage

The Princess of Alster, who has led a very harsh life.
----
* ActionGirl
* ArrangedMarriage: Her advisors want one of these between her and Leif, but she doesn't like the idea since they tell her such things for being a girl. [[spoiler:Miranda ''does'' consider it [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan since Leif is a decent guy]], but tells him [[IWillWaitForYou to fight and finish the war first.]] And their endings say Leif married Nanna (or stayed single if she died) and Miranda married someone else (who may or may not be her loyal knight Connomore), anyway.]]
* BadassPrincess
* BrokenBird
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Averted: she's the princess of Alster, but still goes to lots of crap.
* FallenPrincess
* HotBlooded
* MagicalGirlWarrior --> LadyOfBlackMagic
* [[spoiler:MayDecemberRomance: In her ending, Miranda is said to have married "a certain knight". It's believed that said knight was Conomore, who ''is'' quite older than her.]]

* EvilRedhead: Averted like whoa, he starts as your enemy but is actually a sweet dude.
* HeroicBastard: [[spoiler:The illegitimate child of Emperor Arvis and one of his allies, [[LadyOfBlackMagic Aida]].]]
* HeroicLineage: [[spoiler:Arvis's son, nuff said. He was also speculated to be the one holding major Fala blood in the current generation, since his half-siblings Julius and Julia are major Lopt and major Naga, respectively. This was [[WordOfGod confirmed]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''.]]

->'''Class:''' Hero

The former prince of the Kingdom of Rivough, and a powerful mercenary.

* TheDreaded: So much so that even Ced with Forseti is weary of fighting him!
* EleventhHourRanger
* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: if you don't recruit him, have fun with Deadlord Bovis.]]
* [[spoiler:[[FallenPrincess Fallen Prince]]: Was the prince of Rivough, a small kingdom invaded by Isaac).]]
* GoodScarsEvilscars: [[spoiler:He and Mareeta have marks of Odo on their backs.]]
