    2.     Version History
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Version number: 0.01
    The ultimate in bare-bones. I just got the ASCII art at the beginning of this
    guide, wrote the Table of Contents, and stopped working on it for the day.
    
    Version number: 0.30
    Okay, I got a little further than last time.
    
    Version number: 0.90
    Everyone is added except Lyon. This is the first version submitted to GameFAQs.
    
    Version number: 1.10
    I added in everyone's max stats, and growth rates, even Lyon, who I now have the
    info for. This guide is pretty much complete, I would think. I'm not going into
    strategies for the Tower and Ruins, but I might add in better overviews of the
    characters.
    
    Version number: 1.50
    It's complete. I added in the average stats at level 20 for all of the
    characters, and I added in their Affinities. Some minor formatting changes may
    occur.
    
    Version number: 2.00
    Everything is done. I don't expect to be adding anything in from now on,
    however I may, which is why I'm not labeling this version as final.
    
    Version number: Final
    I've gotten everything I can think of right here, which was basically a few
    minor changes from the last version. There's next to no chance of any more
    updates, so don't hold your breath.

    3.    Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ###############################################################################
    ##################################IMPORTANT!###################################
    ###############################################################################
    
    This guide will contain spoilers (descriptions of plot events) for the game Fire
    Emblem: The Sacred Stones. If you have not completed the game and do not want to
    find out the story in advance, don't read on.
    
    When you complete the Final Chapter of the game, you unlock the Creature
    Campaign and the Map mode for the completed file. After these are available, you
    can continue fighting your way through the Tower of Valni, the Lagdou Ruins,
    and the monsters that randomly appear on certain map areas. For completing
    certain
    areas, certain characters that were enemies or neutral units in the game will
    join your team and will be available to use the next time you enter an area with
    monsters in it. Unfortunately these characters can't be used in the game's
    multiplayer Link Arena and have no dialogue (no Support conversations or death
    quotes). However most of these come with useful items. I am writing this guide
    to describe the characters and how to recruit them.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.     Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Question: I've done what you've explained in the methods of recruiting these
    secret characters but I can't use them! What's going on?
    Answer: You either haven't finished the Final Chapter on the save you used to
    recruit these characters or you haven't entered another level of the Tower/Ruins
    or another random skirmish with monsters.
    
    Question: Why can't the secret characters be used in the Link Arena?
    Answer: I really have no idea. Except for one (Lyon), these characters are the
    exact same classes and have the same potential maximum stats the characters you
    use in the story and in Link Arena.
    
    Question: What's the reason for doing Creature Campaign and unlocking these
    hidden characters?
    Answer: One reason is for completion's sake. Another is for unlocking said
    characters. You can also buy stat-enhancement items to max out your units' stats
    and level them all up to 20, the maximum level.
    
    Question: What is a growth rate?
    Answer: Say a character has a growth rate of 50% for their Speed stat. This
    means that every time the character levels up, they have a 50% chance of gaining
    a point in Speed.
    
    Question: I got character X after clearing area Y, and your guide said X was
    supposed to be recruited after completing area Z! What gives?
    Question: This happens sometimes, I hear. I don't know why, but one theory is
    that when secret characters are unlocked is determined by how many monsters you
    kill in the Tower or Ruins.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5.     Secret Character Information
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here's where the main information you'll be looking for in the guide will be.
    I list the information on each secret character in a specific way, followed by
    my opinion on him or her. Here is the format I'll use.
    
    Name: The character's name.
    Appearance: A description of the unit's portrait.
    Description: The character's description, found by pressing R on the Profile
    screen for the character and moving the cursor over his or her name.
    Introduced in: What chapter the character made his or her first appearance in.
    Class: The character's class. All of them are promoted and therefore they can't
    change their class.
    Affinity: A character's affinity determines the stat boosts the character gets
    from Supporting with other characters. However, the secret characters can't
    Support. I added this in anyway, just for completion's sake.
    Level: The level the unit is when it joins you.
    Base Stats: The character's stats when they are recruited.
         HP: Hit Points. These decrease on each successful (read: that doesn't miss,
    do zero damage, or get blocked by Great Shield) attack you suffer and when this
    number reaches 0, the character dies/retreats from the battle and cannot ever be
    used again.
         Str: Physical strength. It is interchangeable with Mag, which is used for
    magic-using characters.
         Skill: The stat which controls the unit's chance of making a critical or
    hitting their target.
         Spd: Speed. Having at least four points higher speed than your opponent
    (calculated after weapon weight penalties) allows you to attack your opponent
    twice. It also factors in on a unit's dodging ability.
         Luck: Along with Speed, Luck determines a unit's chance of dodging an
    attack. Also, it determines a unit's chance of hitting, alongside Skill.
         Def: Physical defense which reduces the amount of damage you take from a
    physical attack.
         Res: Magic resistance. It works like defense, but with magical attacks.
         Move: How many spaces the unit can move in one turn.
         Con: Constitution or physical size. The number determines the highest
    weight you can use for weapons without losing speed on an attack.
    Maximum stats: The highest the character's stats can go, determined by class.
         HP: This is always maxed out at 60.
         Str:
         Skill:
         Spd:
         Luck: This is always maxed out at 30.
         Def:
         Res:
         Move: This is always maxed out at 15.
         Con: It either maxes out at 20 or 25 depending on the character's class.
    It only increases on promotions or with special items, and you won't need to max
    it, either.
    Growth rates: The chance, expressed in a percentage, that a certain stat will
    increase upon leveling up. Determined by the RNG, but I'm not going into it here
    so you'll have to check out another guide for that.
    Average stats at Level 20: What a character's stats will be on average at Level
    20. Determined by growth rates and how many levels the character can gain.
    Held items: What the unit has when joining your force. A description accompanies
    each item.
    Weapon level: The character's proficiency with each weapon type it can wield.
    Ranges from E to S, E being the worst and S being the greatest. Besides Lyon,
    a character can only get an S-level in one weapon type.
    
    ...............................................................................
    .1 Caellach
    ...............................................................................
    
    Name: Caellach
    Appearance: Dark red, almost brown, slicked back hair, with an angry or smug
    grin across his face and wearing some sort of jacket, possibly a trench coat.
    Description: An ambitious general in Grado's army. He's better known as Tiger
    Eye.
    Introduced in: Chapter 3.
    Unlocked by: Clearing Floor 3 of the Tower.
    Class: Hero
    Affinity: Thunder
    Level: 12
    Base Stats:
         HP: 47
         Str: 19

         HP: 85
         Str: 50
         Skill: 45
         Spd: 45
         Luck: 20
         Def: 30
         Res: 20
    Average Stats at Level 20:
         HP: 54
         Str: 23
         Skill: 18
         Spd: 17
         Luck: 16
         Def: 18
         Res: 15
    Held items:
    Silver Axe (Durability 20, A-rank Axe, 1 range, 12 weight, 15 might, 70 hit,
    0 crit)
    Tomahawk (Durability 15, A-rank Axe, 1-2 range, 14 weight, 13 might, 65 hit,
    0 crit)
    Hoplon Guard (A unit holding it cannot be hit by a Critical hit)
    Weapon level: A Swords, A Axes
    
    He's... all right, I guess. The second Hoplon Guard is nice to have, and his
    stats aren't too awful, but why use him when you can use Gerik or someone
    better? Unfortunately, this is the case with most of the secret characters.
    Max him out on stat boosters if you're a completionist, otherwise just give
    the secondary Hoplon Guard to someone who has horrible Luck.
    
    ...............................................................................
    .2 Orson
    ...............................................................................
    
    Name: Orson
    Appearance: Brown slicked back hair along with a green cape.
    Description: A cavalier or Renais. He's a devoted husband and a serene and
    quiet man.
    Introduced in: Chapter 5x
    Unlocked by: Clearing Floor 6 of the Tower.
    Class: Paladin
    Affinity: Darkness
    Level: 13
    Base Stats:
         HP: 48

         Spd: 18
         Luck: 8
         Def: 21
         Res: 12
    Held items:
    Runesword(Durability 15, A-rank Sword, 1-2 range, 11 weight, 12 might, 65 hit,
    0 crit, drains HP from attack target)
    Silver Lance (Durability 20, A-rank Lance, 1 range, 10 weight, 14 might, 75 hit,
    0 crit)
    Red Gem (no use, can be sold for 2,500 gold)
    Weapon level: A Swords, A Lances
    
    Nice Defense, otherwise not very good at all. If you want a Paladin, use any of
    the other ones, unless you really, really, really like Orson for some reason.
    
    ...............................................................................
    .3 Riev
    ...............................................................................
    
    Name: Riev
    Appearance: Creepy. Receding hairline, slicked-back reddish-purple hair, sunken
    eyes and yellowish skin.
    Description: A heretic and traitor in Grado's army. He's also known as Blood
    Beryl.
    Introduced in: Chapter 3.
    Unlocked by: Clearing Floor 7 of the Tower.
    Class: Bishop
    Affinity: Darkness
    Level: 16
    Base Stats:
         HP: 49
         Mag: 14
         Skill: 21

         Luck: 15
         Def: 30
         Res: 45
    Average Stats at Level 20:
         HP: 52
         Mag: 16
         Skill: 23
         Spd: 21
         Luck: 10
         Def: 17
         Res: 20
    Held items:
    Aura(Durability 20, A-rank Light tome, 1-2 range, 15 weight, 12 might, 85 hit,
    15 crit)
    Purge (Durability 5, B-rank Light tome, 3-10 range, 20 weight, 10 might 75 hit,
    5 crit)
    Blue Gem (no use, can be sold for 5,000 gold)
    Weapon level: S Light Magic, A Staves
    
    Riev can be pretty useful in Creature Campaign, as his fairly low Mag is
    easily cancelled out by the triple might given by Slayer against monsters
    (incredibly useful in CC as the only enemies are monsters, except for a very
    small amount of Thieves in the Ruins who will run for any treasure chest before
    you can get it). He can take hits better than your other potential Bishops as
    well, looking at that beastly Def. Just give him some lower weight tomes and
    he'll be pretty good. Easily the best secret character.
    
    ...............................................................................
    .4 Ismaire
    ...............................................................................
    
    Name: Ismaire
    Appearance: Long red hair, somber expression on face.
    Description: The queen of Jehanna. She is known as the Queen of the White
    Dunes. It's not included in the game's description, but she is Joshua's mother.
    Introduced in: The introduction cinematic-thing. First truly introduced in
    Eirika's Chapter 14, and not at all in Ephraim's route.
    Unlocked by: Clearing the Tower.
    Class: Swordmaster
    Affinity: Wind
    Level: 9
    Base Stats:
         HP: 35
         Str: 16

         Def: 10
         Res: 18
    Held items:
    Shamshir (Durability 20, D-rank Sword, 1 range, 5 weight, 8 might, 75 hit,
    35 crit, can only be used by Eirika, Swordmasters, Assassins, and Myrmidons)
    Wind Sword (Durability 40, B-rank Sword, 1-2 range, 9 weight, 9 might, 70 hit,
    0 crit, effective on flying units)
    Master Seal (promotes any unpromoted unit level 10 or up, excluding those of the
    Lord, Manakete, or 1st-level Journeyman, Recruit or Pupil classes)
    Weapon level: A Sword
    
    She'll probably be killed very easily by everything, and only has one redeeming
    factor, the Wind Sword. Like most of the secret characters, she's not worth it
    without stat-ups.
    
    ...............................................................................
    .5 Selena
    ...............................................................................
    
    Name: Selena
    Appearance: Shoulder-length light-blonde hair, earrings, and some sort of
    (military?) uniform/jacket.
    Description: One of Grado's generals. She's also known by the name Fluorspar.
    Introduced in: Chapter 2
    Unlocked by: Clearing the Tower three times.
    Class: Mage Knight

    Bolting (B-rank Anima tome, 3-10 range, 20 weight, 12 might, 60 hit, 0 crit)
    Elfire (C-rank Anima tome, 1-2 range, 10 weight, 10 might, 85 hit, 0 crit)
    Recover (C-rank staff, range 1, fully heals one friendly unit in an adjacent
    space)
    Weapon level:
    A Anima Magic, B Staff
    
    Good HP for a magic-wielding unit, however the rest of her stats are awful. Use
    anyone over her, as she's pretty much the worse secret character. She's way too
    difficult to unlock as well. Pretty much the worst secret character, I'd say.
    Don't bother using her unless you really, really like her for some disturbing
    reason or absolutely need to have everyone at level 20 promoted with their
    stats maxed out.

    .6 Hayden
    ...............................................................................

    You'd really expect a Ranger to have better Speed than this guy. He's mediocre
    without any stat boosting items. Again, anyone else is quite a bit better than
    him. Use someone, anyone else for your bow user.

    He's not as great as Cormag, but he isn't too bad for a secret character.
    He has fairly good stats all-around, except for his Speed, Luck and
    Resistance. His low starting Resistance is what holds him back, as his
    40% growth in it isn't bad for a physical unit, much less a Wyvern Lord.
    Keep him away from magic and he should do fairly well.

    Moonstone.

    Spear (Durability 15, B-rank Lance, 1-2 range, 10 weight, 12 might, 70 hit,
    5 crit)
    Fili Shield (Protects flying units from the extra damage given to them by arrows
    and wind magic)
    Weapon level: S Lances
    
    Okay, I more or less hate Wyvern Knights (well, the ones that promoted from
    Wyvern Rider, because they can become the far superior Wyvern Lord class), so
    I may be biased against Valter here. But honestly, he's pretty bad. His Luck
    is horrid (lowest average in the game, lower than even Knoll), and his
    defensive stats (Def and Res) are crap. Even his Speed and Skill, which are
    supposed to be his strong points, are bad compared to the rest of your units.
    His Spear can be sold for a nice 4,500 Gold, and his Fili Shield is useful, but
    Valter  himself isn't as useful as his equipment. He starts out pretty
    pathetic for a Level 13 promoted unit, and doesn't get much better. Sure, he
    will get good with some stat-ups, but anyone will.

    Use another General. Really, his stats all-around should be far inferior to
    Gilliam or Amelia's, or, hell, anyone else's. The General's stat caps are
    beastly, but he's crap compared to your other characters unless you give him
    stat-boosters, at which point he can utilize the awesome General caps.
    Gilliam should be closer to his caps if he hasn't hit them already, so it'll
    cost less for you to max out Gilliam, so Fado's not needed unless you're a
    completionist.

    Lyon suffers from the curse of having horrible bases yet some of the greatest
    growths in the game. If you're going to use him, just max him out with stat
    boosters, at which point he'll kick ass. Don't forget to give him Body Rings
    until he has at least 18 Con, because of that damn heavy Naglfar tome. He can
    summon phantoms too, just like Knoll and Ewan if you make either of them the
    Summoner class, but his summons are superior to theirs, which is also
    noteworthy.
