- INTRODUCTION -

 Welcome. Fire Emblem (a.k.a. Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken) for the Gameboy
 Advance is the first from its series to be released in the US; although
 the earliest game on the NES, in fact introduced the strategy RPG genre.

 Note that the character support system itself will not be explained here.
 Instead, this is essentially a database listing, for the number of turns
 that a pair of characters need to stand next to each other, in order for
 support conversations to become available.

v 2.15 NOTICE
-------------
- Rearranged by order of appearance in Hector's more complete story.
   (No favoritism on main characters is being suggested.)

- In response to comments and queries via e-mail, the listings now display the
  number of turns needed for each level of support to become available, with a
  tally of the cumulative number of turns in brackets as well.

- Affinities added next to each character's name:
    I - Ice
    F - Fire
    W - Wind
    T - Thunder
    D - Dark
    L - Light
    A - Anima
