Franz is a Paladin while Forde and Kyle are GK's.

Franz must be like Seth!!!!!!!!!

Agreed...except i make Amelia a Super Trainee..

While it's personal preference, the only Super Trainee worth anything is Ewan, and he sucks anyway.

Super Trainee Amelia is a Swordmaster that uses spears. She's actually pretty awesome.

GK has better promotion bonuses
+1 HP, Str, Spd
+2 Con
-2 Mov
+ Axes

And better caps
+3 Str
-2 Skl (useless; FE8 enemies can't dodge anything)
+4 Def

As for actually reaching the caps, only Franz manages to cap Spd before endgame (20/12 as GK, 20/14 as Paladin) while everyone else will cap one or two stats by 20/16 or above (Amelia caps Spd, Kyle caps Str, GK Forde caps Skl and Spd, Paladin Forde caps nothing).

So, yeah, both in story mode and post game, GK is the better option.
If you want the +2 Mov so badly, use Seth or one of the flyers.

Pally. Weapon Triangle is overrated in this game.

GK >>>> Paladin, but it really doesn't matter in this game.

Pally. Weapon Triangle is overrated in this game.

But the GK still gets better stats when promoted...
