    The Outsiders 

The Outsiders are people from our world, who have been relocated by the mysterious 'The Old Man' to change something about the events of Fire Emblem Awakening. Upon their arrival, they are physically and mentally changed to be better able to survive in their new environment, granting them actual combat skills and on occasion powerful items.

Tropes applicable to them as a group:

Cameron

Well, I guess this cinches it. I'm in lunatic mode. I'm screwed.

The first Outsider to arrive, and the main character of the story. He's the only POV character until the start of the Timeskip arc. Prone to swearing quite a lot.

  • Badass: Eventually manages to duel General Mustafa and win, as well as last a few seconds against King Gangrel, but he's still lagging behind the Shepherds proper.
  • Brave Scot: Downplayed from the stereotype, and he's rather snarky along the way, but... yes. Definitely yes.
  • Class Change Level Reset: Appears to have become a Dread Fighter after spending a period of time in Daydreams And Nightmares following the destruction of his shield.
  • Catch Phrase: Fuck.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Well, duh.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Determinator
  • Disappeared Dad: In the bad future.
  • For Want of a Nail: Thanks to Lucina's interference in the timeline, Cameron was not crippled in the first onslaught of Risen, making him more combat-worthy and able to induce change. For better or for worse.
  • Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: Cameron's main weapon. An extremely sturdy one at that.
    • This doesn't last
  • Official Couple: With Anna. Who becomes The Lost Lenore for him after she dies.
  • Only Sane Man: After his rendezvous with Jaclyn and recruitment of Cynthia, Cameron is certainly feeling like this. Also, of the three Outsiders he's the only one who knew right from the get-go that being in FE:A was not going to be an easy feat (though Julian caught up pretty quickly).
  • Papa Wolf: Shades of this when Eiryss/Fire revealed that she had to fight her Alternate.
    • Following this he reams out Tom, brutalising him without letting him explain the exact circumstances of her arrival and why he brought her, and basically told him to stop interfering with his life for good - he's fed up with playing the games of gods and their unfair rules, no matter their motives... And with one child that hates him, another that was taken by Lucien, and an alternate counterpart of the latter who barely defeated her none-too-empowered-but-still-strong Alternate (along with a dead fiancée), it's hard to completely blame him for it.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Robin/Lucina. Admits that this is his One True Pairing.
  • Shout-Out: He does this frequently.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: His response to Chrom and Robin asking him what Chrom can do about Cordelia:
    Chrom: <slumps down in a chair with a moan> "Gods, how do I deal with this?"
    Cameron: <glares at Robin> "Oh no, you are NOT leaving me alone to deal with your best friend."
    Robin: <sighs and grudgingly sits back down> "I'm not exactly experienced in this, either. He's got a point - you are the only one in a secure relationship type...thing."
    Cameron: "Wonderful."
  • Took a Level in Badass: Following a few months in the D&N-verse, he seems to have become a Dread Fighter.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Happens after Anna's death, though since he met Eiryss it's become a bit more tempered out.
  • Younger than They Look: The stress of being Trapped in Another World, dealing with Lucien, and having his fiancée die has not been very kind on him - Maugen was shocked to learn that Cameron is only twenty-one, and when Cam looks directly into a mirror for the first time since coming to Ylisse...

Julian and Kylar

Julian

You lucky, lucky bastard...you know what? Fine, have your 'Sorry for almost dying' sex, I'm gonna go see if a man can get drunk out in the desert.

Arrived shortly after Cameron on the wrong side of the continent, joined up with Gregor and wandered around for a while.

  • Badass: Still not to the same level as the other Shepherds, but rapidly catching up.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: More sedate than some, but he's still a little... quirky.
  • Catch Phrase: "Evidently."
  • Celibate Hero: Being in what is - for the most part - a World Of Straight, this is practically a given.
  • Determinator
  • For the Lulz: According to Tom, this was the reason he gave for saving Emmeryn.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: He formed a close-knit bond with Gregor during the time they spent together as travelling mercenaries. Gregor later pulled a Taking the Bullet Heroic Sacrifice to save Julian during the final confrontation with Gangrel's army, which left him feeling more down in the dumps than he'd ever have expected.
  • Only Sane Man: Being The Kirk can be for the better, since he's got a much more level head on his shoulders than Cameron or Jaclyn: compared to the former, he lets out his emotions more freely, which enables him to keep his cool and not get so easily set off; compared to the latter, he has more common sense and thinks about his actions and consequences more, but also would be less likely to fall into a slump by overthinking. He has a much more balanced temperament than either of the other Outsiders, so while he's not strictly the most logical or emotional, he's also the least emotionally fragile of the trio.
  • Straight Gay

Kylar

Skree.

Julian's mount, a Griffon, given to him by Tom as part of the transition.—-

Jaclyn

Who wouldn't want to live in a world with magic and dragons and...

The third Outsider, appearing in the middle of the ocean - near where Cameron was. Like Julian, she got herself a mount as part of the deal - in her case, a Pegasus.

    The Alternates 

PS: Have fun figuring out who I am without your memories.
PPS: Power comes with a cost, you idiot. Prepare to pay it.
Lucien, Log Entry #3

The Alternates - as the name implies - represent an alternate version of the Outsiders. Because the Outsiders originally did not exist in the FE world, they needed a sort of ultimate enemy to fight. Thus, the Alternates were created - different and opposite to the Outsiders in many ways, representing their most hated qualities.

  • Balance Between Good and Evil: To bring an Outsider, Tom and the other members of the pantheon need to create an Alternate to keep the world in balance.
  • Enemy Without: They are everything their respective Outsiders hate about themselves.
  • Evil Counterpart
  • Hero Killer: All of them are extraodinarily dangerous - ironically, the only one we've yet met, Lucien, might be weaker than Julian and Jaclyn's (since said Outsiders got themselves mounts and such), but this is unconfirmed.
    • If Cameron and Cynthia hadn't been walking by, Fire/Eyriss' alternate would have killed her due to a massive gut wound.
    • If we believe Eiryss, Lucien is the most dangerous - while the other two possess brute force and power, Lucien is the most dangerous because he's a lot more cunning. The fact that his future self had the foresight to try and interfere with Cameron's note left for Mal, which led to Fire being abducted, is living proof of this.
  • Outside-Context Villain: For the Shepherds and the Outsiders both.
  • Power at a Price: The more powerful an Outsider makes themselves, the more powerful their respective Alternate becomes. And since Julian and Jaclyn gave themselves mounts and Cameron cured his dyspraxia... Lucien directly invokes this trope when contacting Cameron (prior to their face-to-face meeting).
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: For each of their counterparts.
  • Younger than They Look: Technically they're only as old as the amount of time their respective Outsider has been in the Awakening-verse.

Lucien L'Allier

"Luckily for you...I'm not going to do that. No, I'm going to wait two years, then kill you at your strongest and prove that you were never good enough for anything, even with all the little changes you made. So, to make sure you don't just cheat and kill yourself or something like that, here's the deal – I'm not going to kill all the shepherds, just the next three people to come down this hall."

Cameron's Alternate.

  • {Anti-Magic}}: His sword is made of antimagic, a material capable of killing the setting's true gods. Grima wants it, it destroyed Cameron's shield, and if it ever touches Falchion Bad Things (tm) will happen.
  • Archenemy: To Cameron.
  • Ax-Crazy: Somewhat. Just look at the quote.
  • Big Bad: Of the Alternates, given that he is - while not strictly the most powerful - the most dangerous, active, and personal foe in the narrative.
  • Evil Is Petty
  • Hero Killer: The more flaws an Outsider removes from their self, the more powerful their Alternate becomes. Lucien is already deathly-strong - strong enough that he killed two Pegasus knights easily, maimed the third, weakened Validar for nearly "kill-stealing" said third, finishing her off, and still being confident enough that he'll be strong enough to kill Cameron in two years no matter how much the latter may Level Grind.
  • Narcissist: This is probably his Fatal Flaw, too...
  • One-Man Army: Considering that he managed to pull a "one-man 'fuck you gangrel' mission" and succeed, yeah.
  • Psychological Horror: Unlike the other Alternates, who are more Implacable Men, Lucien is describled by Fire/Eiryss as being able to torment people psychologically, and is able to communicate mentally with Cameron.
  • The Sociopath: Cruel, calculating, he treats everything as a game (including his kills), psychologically (and physically) abuses his young apprentice, is incredibly vain and perfectionistic (to the point he cannot conceive the idea that Cameron might defeat him - see the above quote), a complete narcissist who hates having anyone interfere with him and his plans (judging by his response to Henry constantly finding and hurting him)... need we go on?
  • Spanner in the Works: He interfers with Gangrel after the Rescue Mission succeeds, setting alight Plegia Castle. Though this makes ending the war a little easier for the Shepherds, he does this not out of nobility but to help ensure that Cameron survives long enough so he can kill him.
  • Villain Ball: Not killing Cameron might be this, but then again he is an egomaniac - he wants to prove that Cameron is so inferior to him that he will never catch up even with the Time Skip to boost his stats.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Facing Tom in the bad future and promptly receiving a Curb-Stomp Battle resulted in this
  • Wild Card: He works separate from the key powers in Ylisse/Valm and merely follows his own agenda. He seems to know Julian's Alternate, but is not directly aligned with her.

Julia

Julian's Alternate. Confirmed to be Female thanks to some of his insecurities related to his sexuality. Not yet seen very clearly. Her name might be Julia, following Eiryss's inner thoughts. Her name was revealed in Eiryss' first chapter.

  • The Archer: Seen wielding a crossbow.
  • Badass: She very nearly killed Cameron and Julian when they tried to save Emm.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Dragon Rider: Atop a massive wyvern-like creature, at that. Lucien refers to her as a "Drake Rider".
  • Gender Bender: Unlike Lucien, she's the opposite sex of her Good Counterpart. Julian admits he's not surprised by this.
    Julian: "My parents are how conservative?"
    Cameron: "Well, the one time I met them they were screaming about your return home two hours later than you said you would, so...greatly?"
    Julian: "Yes. I'm a gay guy with ultra-conservative parents. Do you see how this might manifest as an insecurity for my sexuality?"
    Cameron: "Well, that's your alternate explained." <shrugs> "No big deal."
    Julian: "Yeah, yeah." <sighs, glances at Anna> "...please don't tell anyone else about this yet."
  • Spanner in the Works: Attempted this for the Rescue Mission, and she nearly succeeded.

Lambda

Jaclyn's Alternate, not yet seen due to her being a fresh arrival in Ylisse. Her name might be Lambda, following Eiryss's inner thoughts. Her name was revealed in Eiryss' first chapter.

Giomatti

An Alternate created when Eiryss enters the main timeline.

  • An Axe to Grind
  • Bald of Evil
  • Eye Scream: How Eiryss kills him.
  • Flat Character: Being an alternate aside, he's just a big ugly brute there to be killed by Eiryss. And to piss off Cameron enough that he refuses to communicate with Tom anymore.
  • Gonk
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Eiryss actually has preexisting combat skill and did not augment herself, so Giomatti is the weakest of all the Alternates - strong, but not supernaturally so like the rest. There's also the fact that Eiryss is a Kid from the Future (albeit from a different future than the one the others originate from).

    Others 

Other major characters that are original to the story but don't exactly fit into any the above two categories.

Malcolm "Mal" Yriel

I swear to Naga, if Inigo's crashed my ship I'm killing him.

Captain of the ship "Serenity", which Severa, Inigo, Brady, Noire and Gerome are part of. Cameron and Anna's son from the future.

Fire

I thought there were no poets in the bitter business.

Lucien's apprentice/niece. She is Mal's sister, who was seized by Lucien.

  • Anti-Villain: She doesn't appear to actually enjoy the acts that Lucien commits (and forces her to commit in turn) - she only follows him out of an as-yet-unexplained loyalty. Seems to involve indoctrination, as he kidnapped her some amount of time before Mal and the rest time-travelled.
  • The Archer
  • Brave Scot: Subverted, thanks to the trauma she's endured.
  • Broken Bird
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Deadpan Snarker: See her quote.
  • Self-Made Orphan: At Lucien's orders, she killed Anna, her mother-to-be, with an arrow to the eye to Make It Look Like an Accident (or rather, so that she'd look like just another random casualty). Why did she do it? Because Lucien stopped torturing her and gave her a proper meal for the first time in six years in exchange for the deed.
  • Shout-Out: Her name is a reference to the quote "Fire, walk with me". Cameron is left wondering what exactly his future self was thinking, naming his daughter after a quote of all things.
    • It turns out that it was Julian who chose the name.

Noel

"Rukina-sama!"

Jaclyn's daughter with a man named Rufure from the future. Briefly mentioned by Cynthia.

Fire/Eiryss

My name is EIRYSS my name is EIRYSS my name is EIRYSS

Fire from an alternate dimension where Mal was captured by Lucien instead. Became an outsider from that dimension to this one.

  • Alternate Self: A version of Fire who wasn't indoctrinated by Lucien.
  • The Archer
  • Brave Scot: Her determination and courage is a trait she gets from her father, Cameron.
  • Daddy's Girl: Not that she doesn't love her mother, but she's quite attached to her father. Her reaction to learning Anna died is to comfort her grieving father and have them grieve together, whereas Mal unjustly blamed him for something he couldn't prevent. And she chews out Mal for being a dick about it when they meet for the first time.
  • Determinator: She sets out to kill her Alternate without hesitation, despite still reeling emotionally, because of the threat to nearby civilians that would take place if she doesn't.
  • Walking Spoiler: Hoo boy.

Mark

"I found Noel, though. Unfortunately, she's still..."
"Still Noel?"
"Still Noel."

Briefly mentioned by Eiryss/Fire. Jaclyn's son, and Noel's older brother.—-

    Non-Original Characters 

Characters who exist within the established canon of the FE universe. Until further notice, only those who are different from canon should be listed.

Listed by section, in order of appearance.

The Shepherds

Chrom

The Captain of the Shepherds and Prince of Ylisse.

  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Subverted - with his big sister still alive he's actually better off than in canon. Mentioned by Cameron, who notes that he's aged far more than Chrom (visibly) because he's suffered far more and has less tress overall, at least for the moment.
  • Asexuality: He is technically attracted to women but, as Cameron points out, Chrom appears to lack any form of sex drive in general let alone a need to satisfy it. Neither Chrom nor Robin argue this point.
  • Badass: Heck, he very nearly killed Lucien at one point, albeit as part of Robin's strategy to deal with him. He would have succeeded too, except that Lucien had by this point discovered Anti-Magic - which could have destroyed Falchion if it made contact with him - and so Cameron had to throw himself and Lucien off the roof of the building to ensure this wouldn't happen, since they'd be rather screwed without Falchion once Grima is awoken.
  • Oblivious to Love: To the point that he had no idea that Cordelia was in love with him. When she finally confesses to him, he (calmly) takes it in until he can consult Robin and Cameron, at which point it's clear that he's freaking out inside.
    • He also didn't seem aware that people thought he and Sumia were an item - she was actually seeking out his help in trying out her pies because she wanted to impress Frederick.

Robin

The Shepherds' tactician and strategist, recruited shortly before Cameron.

Frederick

Lissa

Maribelle

Lissa's best friend and one of the Shepherds. She and Cameron don't get along due to her impatience with him not being more genteel, and his disliking her general manner.

  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She does warm to people slowly as in canon, but bonus points for the fact that she and Cameron are at each other's throats for a long time. The first time we see her showing actual concern for him as a person is after Anna's death sends him into a depression.
  • Romantic False Lead: In-Universe, as people were hedging bets early on that her testy relationship with Cameron was a case of Belligerent Sexual Tension. Being Maribelle, it's not shocking that this isn't the case.

Anna

Cordelia

Gregor

A kind-hearted, seasoned mercenary who the Shepherds meet when facing the Grimleal in the desert. He met up with Cameron's friend Julian a couple months before this, and they worked together as partners.

Future Children

Lucina

Chrom's Kid from the Future, her mother is Cordelia and she has one sibling: her sister, Severa.

  • Insistent Terminology/Last Name Basis: Calling Cameron "Lord Yriel" after the assumed surname he took in Ylisse.
  • Knight Templar Big Sister: Her reaction to learning that Mal - who she dislikes on principle - is dating Severa is for her to prepare to kill the perpetrator - or commit maiming at the very least.
  • Running Gag: Cameron keeps telling her to talk to Robin, much to her bemusement.
  • Screw Destiny: Along with her general attitude, she uses Falchion to cure Cameron of his crippling (from the first Risen attack). He finally properly

Severa

Daughter of Cordelia and Chrom - making her Lucina's younger sister and a Princess of Ylisse. She is first seen travelling with Mal on his ship "Serenity".

  • [[spoiler:Badass Princess]
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Malcolm. They are implied to have consummated after he learned of his mother's death.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Her and Mal.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Genre Savvy: She needs only one look at Cameron's dead eyes to realise that Anna is dead - and with her, Mal's hopes of their reuniting again; she immediately goes to comfort him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She snarks at Mal well enough, but nonetheless she's very concerned for him after he learns of Anna's death.
  • The Lancer: Of Mal's crew.
  • Official Couple: With Mal - they're officially together as of his discovering Anna's death, with her comforting him over it.
  • Oh Crap: See above
  • Shout-Out: When General Pheros's fleet pulls them up, she pretends to be Mal's whore to avoid close inspection so they won't see the Brand of the Exalt on her shoulder/upper arm and deduce she is Ylissean royalty.
  • Tsundere: She is definitely this to Mal: one minute she's being quite sweet, and then she does a 180 when he tells her that playing the role of his whore suits her.

Cynthia

Daughter of Sumia and Frederick, she is discovered when Cameron lands on the continent of Valm (with the newly-found Jaclyn in tow), working for Maugan/Ruger as in canon. The two manage to convince her that she's been duped, and she helps them eliminate

  • Accidental Pervert: She found out that Malcolm and Severa were an item when she walked in on them, um... yeah. She'd been intending to yell at Mal for blaming his mother's death on Cameron.
  • Hero-Worshipper: She actually thinks Cameron is rather awesome, despite his son, Malcolm thinking he was a total bore. Cameron is pleasantly surprised by this.
  • I Choose to Stay: A variant, she elects to stay with Cameron and his group, even after Jaclyn left with Mal's group, rather than going to meet her parents.
  • Nice Gal: Cynthia is too kind by half. She even because she was worried about him, thought he needed support with one of his kids hating him, and genuinely wants to help him out in his quest.
  • Saying Too Much: Telling Lucina that Mal/Severa is a thing, apparently not aware that Lucina and Mal don't seem to get along. Lucina intends to maim him for it, convinced that he's manipulating her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist

Others

The Old Man (a.k.a "Tom")/Xane

Originally mistaken as Old Hubba, then as an old man Cameron knew called Eugene, The Old Man (TOM for short) is the one who created the whole Outsider/Alternate system to begin with and is just one of many people watching over assorted universes.

The first chapter from Emmeryn's POV reveals him to be Xane, from the Archanea games. For more on his character, see here.

  • Almighty Janitor: He's ridiculously powerful, capable of warping reality and pulling people across universes, but compared to the rest of the Pantheon members he's basically an Intern.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's really quite friendly for a Physical God Reality Warper.
  • Failed a Spot Check: He should have checked whether Emmeryn ever drinks alcohol - had he done so, then he wouldn't have needed to pull her from her realm into that of the Pantheon, precisely before they were about to have a meeting; this leads to her learning of their existence more comprehensively and some of their secrets, though not too much of them, more than they'd prefer. As Discworld Death puts it, he "done goofed".
  • Jerkass Gods: Subverted, at least by him. Old Hubba is another matter, though...
  • Loophole Abuse: Because Bad Future-Lucien - from a parallel universe - killed Tiki, he breaks part of the contract which requires that Tom not interfere directly. He proceeds to utterly decimate him, saving Alt-Fire and sending her to the mainstream Asleepverse.
  • Mission Control: Until Caeron cuts him off. Following this, the other Pantheon members tell him interfere directly anymore - though he still saves Cameron's hide by sending him to the Daydreams And Nightmares universe, where he can also Level Grind in a new fighting style.
  • Precision F-Strike: Lets out a "Shit" at the above Failed a Spot Check.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: One thing he can do at will. It foreshadows his true identity as Xane.

Emmeryn

The ruler of the Halidom of Ylisse.

  • Secret Keeper: For the Pantheon - because she was needlessly pulled into their Realm by Xane, she found of more about them than most mortals do but is required to keep it a secret.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: She does still go the Heroic Suicide route to spare Chrom the hard choice, but Cameron manages to save her.
  • What Is One Man's Life in Comparison?: Cameron ponders on this one, knowing that it's not just her speech to Plegia, but her very martyr-like death which helped break their resolve to keep fighting and ended the war much quicker. He wonders whether it would save more lives - and leave the country better-equipped to deal with Walhart - if he just lets her die. He saves her, but just as he predicted her survival causes more damage than her death would, though implicitly not as much as in the original timeline.

Phila

Commander of the Ylissean pegasus knights, and loyal to Emmeryn.

  • Ascended Extra: She gets more screentime and development before her capture by Plegia and survives the Rescue Mission for Emmeryn.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: See below, in regards to Cameron (she does carry herself in a very professional manner in general).
  • Jerkass Realisation: She and a number of the high command of Ylisse suspect that Cameron is The Mole for Plegia and thus, she becomes cold to him. A segment at the end of a chapter in her POV, where she and her forces are captured, make her realise that he was sincere and she feels remorseful for not trusting him earlier.
  • Lady of War: Demonstrated by this skilled Falcon Knight more than in canon.
  • Running Gag: She never seems to get Cameron's name right!
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Thanks to Cam and Julian interfering in Emmeryn's Heroic Suicide, she and a number of her Pegasus Knights survive the Risen onslaught summoned by Aversa during the Rescue Mission/
  • Undying Loyalty: To Emmeryn, and by extension to all House Ylisse.

Matthew

A blonde-haired man who first appears during the Ylisse/Plegia War. Apparently in league with some assassins sent after Lissa, he quickly exposes the Hierarch as The Mole within the Ylissean forces, vindicating Cameron (whose warnings about Plegia's plans cast suspicion upon himself. He incapacitates the Hierarch before fleeing.

He returns during the Timeskip Arc, where his true identity is revealed: Matthew, one of the heroes of Eliwood's heroes army. Having fought to save Elibe twice, first from Nergal's schemes and years later against King Zephiel's invading armies, his efforts have rewarded him with becoming an Einherjar. Existing on the mortal plane on-off for the past few hundred years, he was sent by Tom/Xane to assist Cameron in his efforts to protect this part of the multiverse from Grima and Lucien.

  • The Bus Came Back: In the Timeskip Arc.
  • Good All Along: Helping stop the Hierarch when he attacks Cameron hints at it. His reappearance confirms it.
  • The Lancer: For Cameron's vigilante group, being of the opposite temperament and the one who knows most about what's fully going on. He also helps train Fire/Eiryss and Cynthia to become stronger fighters.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different
  • Perpetual Smiler: He's Matthew - this is to be expected.
  • Walking Spoiler: He is the Einherjar of the hero Matthew.

Maugan/Ruger

The bandit leader who impersonate Chrom within the Valmese continent, tricking Cynthia along the way. He turns out to be a skilled disguise artist - contrary to popular opinion - which convinces Cameron to spare his life when he has him at his mercy. He decides to use Maugan's skill as he sets out to [[spoiler:form a small band of vigilantes who will protect the common people from atrocities on ''all'' sides of the Valmese conflict.

  • Ascended Extra: Given he was a one-off villain in the game.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the games he's pretty much just a Dirty Coward who bullies villages, and his skill at truly disguising himself is never touched upon. Here, he's quite skilled at disguising himself, and while he did abuse a position as a bandit leader he's less cowardly - he's still an asshole and is helping Cameron through blackmail, but is more grudging that outright cowardice due to his self-preservation.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Subverted - Maugan is his real name, and Ruger was just one of many names he'd adopted as he drifted through life.
  • Anti-Hero
  • Cowardly Lion/Lovable Coward: Kind of. He's a dick, but he's not a completely detestable wimp like in canon.
  • The Drifter: Just goes through lives as he pleases, taking on new lives as he feels necessary (or just wishes to).
  • Heel-Face Turn: By force.
  • Hero of Another Story: Apparently, he served under Frederick as an apprenticeduring one of his many lives, and served under the bandit leader who searches for treasure in the area Owain is located at (for additional points, the two have a Palette Swap in the game).
  • I Have Many Names: Ruger being one of them - some eight in total, from what he says
  • Jerkass: Not the nicest or most selfless guy.
  • Master of Disguise: Good enough to make Cynthia not look like an idiot for believing him to be actually Chrom.
  • Oh Crap: When he hears about what Cameron is planning.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Since he probably feels he's got nothing to lose, he makes it clear he's just along for the ride and doesn't care for his new allies.
  • The Smart Guy: In Cameron's vigilante group, starting with the Time Skip arc.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: For anyone who plays through Cynthia's recruitment chapter or just considers all the Future Children (which would be pretty much everyone, of course, so it pretty much makes no difference.)
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's kind of an asshole (being a onetime bandit leader), and nobody in Cameron's group actually trusts him at all.
