I just... I could never use him. I h8 base class archers. They do nothing but contribute supporting damage to other characters but never seem to get any kills, which just makes them really bad in the long run... :/
Objectively speaking, I dunno, though.

Tie for virion and ricken, Noire starts out as a lv 10 archer and her stats were all at least. 10+ better than my low leveled virion sniper. Ricken was good at first, but his stats didn't keep up, so I benched him.
Ricken, despite him sucks as a physical unit, at least gets access to Luna.
Cherche has Renewal, a pretty nice skill to net from War Cleric. Considering her mods, despite having highest female Str mod but -1 Spd and Skl sorta hurts but eh, she didn't think it's really crucial anyway.
Virion at least could grant some nice skills(-breaker skills and Deliverer). And I haven't played the game yet but people say Snipers are pretty crucial in Lunatic. Plus, I like him personally.
Since I don't have the game yet I couldn't give my full opinion but I don't think there's the worst unit, just not so great like others.
OP tomes, high Res, and skills be damned; I won't use Sorcs. O furious and insane gods! Send me ten-nay, TWENTY of your finest cakes!
If were talking max stats and a selection of any skills from their pool, I doubt there can really be one 'worst' unit. Just a bunch of units who are all outclassed by some of the children, Chrom, Avatar, etc.
Ricken on the other hand is underlevelled when he joins, and you already have a better mage by then (Miriel has better growths in the stats that count) so he's doesnt really fill as much of a gap.
So out of those 2, Id say Ricken is worse!
