========================================
1. Introduction
========================================

Hello. In case you don't go to the GameFAQ Boards and haven't seen my 
contributor info or Fire Emblem 6 Support FAQ, I am Juigi, elder half of the 
Kario Brothers, who are ripoffs of the Mario Brothers (from the Mario 
series). My email address is juigikario@yahoo.com . (Yep, it's changed. Don't 
bother sending emails to figaro_brothers@hotmail.com or juigi@lycos.co.uk .) 
But enough of that.

Fire Emblem is a Strategy RPG series that has yet to be in America. So why 
are Marth (from Fire Emblem 1 and 3) and Roy (from Fire Emblem 6) in Super 
Smash Bros. Melee? Because SSBM was made in Japan. Both characters were the 
Lord/Leader of an army in their respective games, so they needed to survive 
for you to avoid Game Over.

In any case, this FAQ is actually a sub-FAQ for my main FAQ/Walkthrough. It 
will already be big enough with the Walkthrough alone. The things I was 
planning to include, one of which being the Character lists, would make the 
thing too big. So I'm reducing the size of the main FAQ. Besides, if I put up 
several Fire Emblem FAQs at once, Fire Emblem should become more popular. :D

Oh yeah, about me:

*RN: Not publically disclosed

*How to contact me:

*Major GameFAQ contributions: Fire Emblem 1 FAQs (3-part Walkthrough, Basic 
and Mechanics FAQ, Character FAQ, Class FAQ, Item/Weapon FAQ, Shop/Arena FAQ, 
and Talis Quest Walkthrough) and FE6 Support FAQ

And by the way, DO NOT SEND THE FOLLOWING TO MY EMAIL ADDY OR IM ME WITH THE 
FOLLOWING:

*Anything over half a Megabyte without me approving of it first. My box is 
getting spam often enough as it stands.
*Flames. They will not be tolerated. You will instead get counterflamed AND 
blocked.
*Criticism unless it is good enough. Since it is harsh enough on its own, it 
won't be tolerated either, but you'll just be blocked.
*Spam. I get enough of it already. You'll be counterspammed, flamed, AND 
blocked all at once, and if you think of blocking me first, I'll report you 
to your email service if you do this.
*Prejudice. Yes, I am listing this and I'm sick of it to no end. Long story. 
If you decide to be prejudiced, you'll be reported.
*Any information I find/know to be false. You will be malleted as a warning, 
and if you continue, you'll be blocked as well.
*Any unreasonable attempts to be funny. This includes but is not limited to 
"I can't get in the FAQ. Get in it for me, Juigi", "I have a suggestion: 
EVERYBODY dies", and such. None of that is funny, and instead, you will be 
blocked on the spot if you even try.

Excuse me if I'm being harsh; I just don't want any trouble. Strict? That I 
have no problem with. If you want to report anything though, do so, but be 
nice about it. Now, without further ado, onto the FAQ!

Japanese text addition notes: all Japanese characters are assumed to be 2 
characters long. In addition, I'm using "tu", "ti", and "si" in place of 
"tsu", "chi", and "shi" respectively in case you're confused. Small vowels 
are abbreviated as they would be in Romanji, so "jiyo" with "yo" being a 
small vowel becomes "jo." FYI, this applies only with "shi", "ji", and "chi" 
because they're the only convertable ones.

========================================
2. Version notes
========================================

*Version 0.97 (9/11/2004) - Put all starting stats and growths onto tables. 
Removed estimates. Also added a couple of my comments. Still missing some. 
Since it's been 3 years exactly since the 9/11 incident, don't forget to 
think of the people who died in said indicent.

*Version 0.92 (8/4/2003) - Some growth rates added. New section added and 
very incomplete. Personal info added.

*Version 0.91 (4/24/2003) - Navigation made slightly easier.

*Version 0.9 (4/22/2003) - Starting Items done. Now only growth rates and 
final stat estimations are missing.

*Version 0.61 (4/10/2003) - Items for Maria and Minerva added. Mistakes in 
estimations haven't been bothered with yet.

*Version 0.6 (3/2/2003) - FAQ started. Missing growth rates for people 
obtained past Chapter 8 as well as final estimation for most characters.

========================================
3. Characters
========================================

----------------------------------------
Marth (マルス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Prince of Altea and leader of the revolt against the Dark Dragon.
*Class: Lord
*My comments: Marth is the one Lord in the whole game. I have no personal 
comments so see Lord protection advice in my Class FAQ.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Kain (カイン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Loyal Social Knight lackey of Marth. Relies a bit on power.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: Kain is the first of the Kain characters. He's semi powerful 
but somewhat slow so have him use light weapons and don't worry about 
strength.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Abel (アベル)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Another loyal Social Knight lackey of Marth, also Kain's 
brother. Relies a bit on Speed.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: Abel is the first of the Abel characters. He is the opposite of 
Kain because his speed is good but his strength is inferior. He'll have less 
of a problem with using Spears or other powerful weapons because weight and 
hit rate are both less of a problem.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Jeigan (ジェイガン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Marth's toughest starting ally and also his second-in-command. 
Old man so his growth rates aren't exactly good......
*Class: Paladin
*My comments: Jeigan is the first of the Jeigan characters. Jeigan characters 
are pretty good at the start but in the long run, their usefulness is 
just....yuck. Don't rely on Jeigan too much; I wouldn't and certainly a lot 
of people wouldn't.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Doga (ドーガ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Armored troop of Marth's.
*Class: Armor Knight 
*My comments: Doga is somewhat like Jeigan, but at least he's fairly better. 
He's better as a roadblock though. Again, don't rely on him too much, but 
feel free to rely on him a bit.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Gordan (ゴードン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Archer ally of Marth's.
*Class: Archer
*My comments: Gordan is lousy until he promotes. He'll have a job doing 
damage like Kashim can. Keep him safe from melee attacks.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Sheeda (シーダ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Princess of Talis. The one who warns Marth about the Garuda 
Pirates.
*Class: Pegasus Knight
*My comments: Sheeda's somewhat lopsided. Speed, Skill, and Luck should 
SERIOUSLY expect to be maxed out, and Defense and Strength become decent at 
promotion. Just worry about Strength, HP, and her weakness vs. Bow attacks.
*Obtained by: You start with her during Chapter 1

----------------------------------------
Riff (リフ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Healer from Talis island's west village.
*Class: Cleric
*My comments: I thought before he was a Jeigan. But in fact, he's the best 
candidate for promoting a Magic user the first time when you think about it. 
His HP growth is part of the reason......
*Obtained by: Visiting the west village on Talis Island (Chapter 1)

----------------------------------------
Oguma (オグマ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Captain of the guards in Talis.
*Class: Mercenary
*My comments: This guy is NOT a Jeigan, even though his starting stats will 
probably make you drool considering how far you are when you get him. In 
fact, he's the first of the Ogumas, who start great and stay great to the 
bitter end, and Oguma, being the original, is NO exception to this. I'd love 
to see Marth EVER catch up with Oguma in Skill OR Speed without item help, 
even if Ogy doesn't promote. Oguma will still have problems with Physical 
Defense and Strength, but once he's promoted, he'll be a battlefield behemoth.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 2

----------------------------------------
Saji (サジ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Strongest of the Axe brothers. Loyal to Oguma like his brothers.
*Class: Axeman
*My comments: While this loyal lackey of Oguma's can't exactly crush Dolua, 
he can still crush a whole army of Armor Knights, although he'd still need 
some help doing so.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 2

----------------------------------------
Maji (マジ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Fastest of the Axe brothers. Loyal to Oguma like his brothers.
*Class: Axeman
*My comments: Just make sure this second loyal lackey of Oguma's doesn't let 
multipe melee weapon using enemys strike him because often he'll just strike 
them down letting even more enemies smack him around until he dies. You'd 
have to be careful when using him, but at least he'll gain 1 HP on each level 
up.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 2

----------------------------------------
Barts (バーツ)
----------------------------------------

Background: Toughest of the Axe brothers. Loyal to Oguma like his brothers.
Class: Axeman
*My comments: Few people like Oguma's lackeys at all, and suggest that this 
second-in-command of Oguma's troops is the only one that should be used 
should any of them be used at all. I, however, find them all useful because 
they can use Hammers and also dish out AND take heavy damage anyway. The 
problem is the bad hit rate AND the high weight of the Axes. Barts's stats 
are decent, yes, and his growth rate makes his chances of keeping up with 
Arena pests in EVERY area higher than about anybody else's. Benching both 
Saji and Maji without test runs is still not a good idea though.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 2

----------------------------------------
Daros (ダロス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Leader of a group of pirates. Waits for Marth to let him clean 
up his soul.
*Class: Pirate
*My comments: ANOTHER Jeigan. Geez. Everybody in the whole game seems to be a 
Jeigan. Well, Daros's stats are far from impressive at the get-go but he can 
walk across the seas. Not a useful ability it seems but nobody really plays 
strategically these days or else AW's Olaf would be more liked. Daros's 
growth rates make things worse. No Skill growth will give him serious 
problems in hitting his target.
*Obtained by: Letting him talk to Marth, he's in Garuda Port (Chapter 2)

----------------------------------------
Kashim (カシム)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Hunter hailing from Talis who helps the Garuda Pirates just to 
help his sick mother by getting needed money.
*Class: Hunter
*My comments: Although this poor guy is nothing compared to a promoted Gordon 
or maybe a promoted Thomas, Kashim is still great. Question his Strength 
growth at all or his Skill and Speed growths compared to fellow bow users and 
you may find yourself regretting it. He's even exceptional with his defense 
capabilities, though only judging by Hunter standards; if he's at L20 and you 
give him a Dragon Shield, most likely he can survive against a Critical L3 
Hand Spear Paladin hit, an L7 Horseman Steel Bow strike, and an L5 Horseman 
Steel Bow strike. Nothing impressive, but it proves that he, like all other 
units from Talis, can be VERY useful.
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Sheeda, he's in Garuda Port (Chapter 2)

----------------------------------------
Julian (ジュリアン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Theif who tries to help Rena escape Navarre and his group as 
your army comes around. Has a crush on Rena.
*Class: Theif
*My comments: This is the first of the Julians. Julians are Theives who are 
horrible at first but they become fairly impressive. Julian, however, fails 
to impress me like FE6's Chad did at all, despite being the original.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 3, he's trying to run away 
from Navarre

----------------------------------------
Rena (レナ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Healer from Macedonia who was trying to heal sick people in the 
Devil Mountains and got captured, but escaped with help from Julian, who she 
has a crush on.
*Class: Cleric
*My comments: Well, well. At least she's better than Riff except for her 
inability to get HPs on any level ups, but there's one problem: her only two 
real strengths over Riff are her higher Luck and Speed and her ability to use 
the Hammerne Wand. She's still more reliable though, but I wouldn't count 
Riff out for anything.....
*Obtained by: You start with her during Chapter 3, she's trying to run away 
from Navarre

----------------------------------------
Navarre (ナバール)
----------------------------------------

Background: Leader of a group of Theives in the Devil Mountains. Doesn't like 
to attack women or children.....
Class: Mercenary
*My comments: He's the first of the Navarres, who are the rivals of the 
Ogumas. This doesn't mean that Navarre will start and stay great but he does 
anyway, and since he's the original, why shouldn't he?
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Sheeda, he's in the 
Devil Mountains (Chapter 3)

----------------------------------------
Matis (マチス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Front line knight of Macedonia. Rena's older sister.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: He's not somebody many people who play FE like at all. Heck, 
he'll only be average in usefulness at best. Still, you have another Social 
Knight to command, so don't complain to me saying that Matis sucks.
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Rena, he's in the 
Orleans Prarie (Chapter 4)

----------------------------------------
Maric (マリク)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Magician who is friends with Marth and in love with Marth's 
sister, Ellis.
*Class: Magician
*My comments: Ah ha ha! Now you have somebody who can fire enemies, and when 
I say fire enemies, I mean fire enemies. Even Generals have only HPs to fight 
off magic with, since few units, let alone enemies, have a speck of Magic 
Defense.
*Obtained by: Visiting the north village in the Orleans Prarie (Chapter 4)

----------------------------------------
Hardin (ハーディン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Social Knight leader of the Orleans Soldier Team.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: This guy is, ability wise, a Social Knight version of Oguma. 
Don't raise him first though; he starts at a higher level than his lackeys, 
which hurts his usefulness.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 5, he's across the river west 
of your troops

----------------------------------------
Roshi (ロシェ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Hardin's toughest lackey, member of the Orleans Soldier Team.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: This guy can surpass his own leader, but he's still no Oguma. 
Good to have around though.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 5, he's across the river west 
of your troops

----------------------------------------
Birak (ビラク)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Other Social Knight of the Orleans Soldier Team.
*Class: Social Knight
*My comments: Birak won't be as great as Roshi, but a Social Knight is a 
Social Knight. If you want to use him, that's your choice.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 5, he's across the river west 
of your troops

----------------------------------------
Wolf (ウルフ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Tougher of the two Bow Knights of the Orleans Soldier Team.
*Class: Bow Knight
*My comments: This bow user cannot promote so use him while he's still useful. 
He'll likely be surpassed by Gordan eventually.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 5, he's across the river west 
of your troops

----------------------------------------
Zagaro (ザガロ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Other Bow Knight of the Orleans Soldier Team.
*Class: Bow Knight
*My comments: Use this Bow Knight carefully; Uluf will likely keep ahead of 
him, and Zagaro also cannot promote.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 5, he's across the river west 
of your troops

----------------------------------------
Wendel (ウェンデル)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Maric's teacher. Wants Garnef overthrown more than Marth would.
*Class: Priest
*My comments: YET ANOTHER Jeigan. Stats aren't bad but the problem is he's 
already promoted, and may find himself being surpassed by his own student.
*Obtained by: Letting him talk to Marth or Maric, he's in the 
Orleans Kingdom (Chapter 5)

----------------------------------------
Ricard (リカード)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Julian's Godbrother, jailed by Macedonia for attempting stealing.
*Class: Theif
*My comments: This guy is not as good as his Godbrother. Still, you have 
another Theif so don't complain about his stats. If you grow tired of his low 
Weapon Level, just give him the Manual......
*Obtained by: Letting him talk to Marth or having Julian talk to him, he's in 
the cell in Orleans Castle (Chapter 6)

----------------------------------------
Banut (バネトゥ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Mamkute traveling to find his granddaughter Tiki
*Class: Mamkute
*My comments: And here's another Jeigan. However, he's still VERY useful 
because of the insane defense he'll have when he's armed with a Fire Dragon 
Stone, that and he also does heavy damage with it. If you want, though, go 
ahead and bench him once you get Tiki.
*Obtained by: Visiting the village in Lefcandy (Chapter 7)

----------------------------------------
Shiza (シーザ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: One of the two guards of Warren. Shiza is tough, but has 
somewhat low potential.
*Class: Mercenary
*My comments: A part Jeigan, Shiza starts out better than Raddy but Raddy 
will pass him up guaranteed.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 8, he's just within Warren.

----------------------------------------
Raddy (ラディ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: The other guard of Warren. Raddy is not as tough as Shiza at 
first but he has more potential.
*Class: Mercenary
*My comments: This guy can match Oguma. But I'd still go for Oguma because 
you likely have already leveled him up by now and he can max out all stats 
except Defense and Luck which he beats Raddy at anyway. Still, beef him up 
and keep him around if you want.
*Obtained by: You start with him during Chapter 8, he's just within Warren.

----------------------------------------
Roger (ロジャー)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Leader of an Armor Knight squad from Grunia who tries attacking 
Warren. He lost his parents, probably at an early age.....
*Class: Armor Knight
*My comments: And here's another Jeigan. He's a great roadblock, albeit not 
as good as Banut, but people are bound to surpass him in his own strength 
eventually.........
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Sheeda, he's leading the Grunian Armor 
Knight squad patrolling the area near Warren (Chapter 8)

----------------------------------------
George (ジョルジュ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Sniper from Akanea's armies. He's the resident of a village in 
Prady.
*Class: Sniper
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Visiting the village in Prady (Chapter 9)

----------------------------------------
Maria (マリア)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Sister of Minerva and brother of Michael. She is being held 
hostage so that Minerva must fight Altea.
*Class: Cleric
*My comments: Okay. She is more difficult to raise. It may not even be worth 
the effort either. While you have another Healer, once your other magic users 
are promoted, bench her.
*Obtained by: Letting her talk with Marth, she's in the cell in the fort of 
Deals (Chapter 10)

----------------------------------------
Minerva (ミネルバ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Brother of Michael, sister of Maria, and princess of Macedonia. 
She cares about her sister mostly.
*Class: Dragon Knight
*My comments: Your only Dragon Knight before the middle of Chapter 19, 
Minerva can be fairly handy in picking off enemies. Unfortunately, she's part 
Jeigan too. How many Jeigan-like people are in this game? Argh!
*Obtained by: Letting her talk with Marth, you have to get Maria on your side 
first, she appears in Lefcandy (Chapter 7) but retreats then, and reappears 
in Deal (Chapter 10) where you recruit her.

----------------------------------------
Linda (リンダ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Daughter of Miroa, one of Akanea's 3 Great Priests (the other 
two being Gato and Garnef). She ran away as her father was killed by Garnef, 
and was later captured in disguise of a boy by Norda's Slave Market.
*Class: Magician
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Visiting the "Village" in Bares (Chapter 11)

----------------------------------------
Jake (ジェイク)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Shooter following Grunia and in love with a girl named Anna......
*Class: Magician
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Sheeda, he's with the Grunian troops around 
Bares (Chapter 11)

----------------------------------------
Medea (ミディア)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Leader of a captured rebellion that tried to liberate Bares.
*Class: Paladin
*My comments:
*Obtained by: You start with her in Chapter 12, she's in the cell with her 
4 allies

----------------------------------------
Tomth (トムス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Medea's better Armor Knight and part of her captured rebellion.
*Class: Armor Knight
*My comments:
*Obtained by: You start with him in Chapter 12, he's one of Medea's 4 allies

----------------------------------------
Michelan (ミシェラン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Medea's other Armor Knight and part of her captured rebellion
*Class: Armor Knight
*My comments:
*Obtained by: You start with him in Chapter 12, he's one of Medea's 4 allies

----------------------------------------
Thomas (トームス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Medea's Archer ally and part of her captured rebellion
*Class: Archer
*My comments: Well, you already trained Gordan and probably are ready to 
promote him, but since you can't promote anybody else with the Orion's Bolt, 
you might as well use Thomas.
*Obtained by: You start with him in Chapter 12, he's one of Medea's 4 allies

----------------------------------------
Boa (ボア)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Medea's advisor and part of her captured rebellion
*Class: Priest
*My comments: FINALLY! The LAST of the dang Jeigans. Sadly, his growths are 
PATHETIC, and he'll only beat Wendel in Skill and Speed if anything unless 
you had suffered bad mojo with Wendel. Use him STRICTLY as backup if anything 
until your other magic users are up to pace.
*Obtained by: You start with him in Chapter 12, he's one of Medea's 4 allies

----------------------------------------
Beck (ベック)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Resident of a village near Gra
*Class: Shooter
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Visiting the village in Gra (Chapter 13)

----------------------------------------
Astoria (アストリア)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Swordsmaster helping Grunia's forces in Gra, has a relationship 
with Medea
*Class: Hero
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Medea, he's in Gra (Chapter 13)

----------------------------------------
Paola (パオラ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Eldest Pegasus Sister
*Class: Pegasus Knight
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Letting her talk with Marth when she appears just outside 
Gra Castle (Chapter 14)

----------------------------------------
Katua (カチュア)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Middle Pegasus Sister. 
*Class: Pegasus Knight
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Letting her talk with Marth when she appears just outside 
Gra Castle (Chapter 14)

----------------------------------------
Aran (アラン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Former Paladin captain of Altea. He's not in good terms with his 
neighbor Samson.
*Class: Paladin
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Visiting the west village in Altea (Chapter 16), this village 
automatically locks without Aran joining if you visit the east village 
instead

----------------------------------------
Samson (サムソン)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Heroic fighter for Altea. He's not in good terms with his 
neighbor Aran.
*Class: Hero
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Visiting the east village in Altea (Chapter 16), this village 
automatically locks without Samson joining if you visit the west village 
instead

----------------------------------------
Chainy (チェイニー)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Strange being captured by Grunians occupying Altea
*Class: Commando
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Letting him talk with Marth, he is in a prison in 
Altea (Chapter 16)

----------------------------------------
Est (エスト)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Youngest Pegasus Sister.
*Class: Pegasus Knight
*My comments: Her above average growth rates shouldn't be too surprising, 
because she comes in fairly late anyway, which limits her usefulness. 
*Obtained by: Letting her talk with Marth, she comes in the 
Rahman area (Chapter 18)

----------------------------------------
Tiki (チキ)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Granddaughter of Banut and princess of Narga. She loves her 
grandfather enough that she may break her hypnotism.....
*Class: Mamkute
*My comments: Thought Banut was good? Well Tiki is basically a small and 
female Ultra-Banut, making Banut himself look like a JOKE. She's one of the 
last troops to join your ranks though, but she might serve some usefulness.
*Obtained by: Talking to her with Banut, she guards the Throne in the Rahman 
Temple (Chapter 19)

----------------------------------------
Lawrence (ロレンス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Grunia General who hates the Dolua-Grunia alliance. He knows 
Talis's King.......
*Class: General
*My comments:
*Obtained by: Talking to him with Sheeda, he's in Grunia (Chapter 20)

----------------------------------------
Ellis (エリス)
----------------------------------------

*Background: Marth's sister. She was captured by Garnef to let Marth escape 
to Talis.
*Class: Cleric
*My comments: She comes in too late in the game to be of very much assistance.
However, if you manage to get her promoted, she'll be a nice addition for 
Chapter 25. Don't forget to have her use her Oum Wand at the altar in Chapter 
24 to bring back a long lost friend......
*Obtained by: You get her right at the end of Chapter 23

----------------------------------------
Gato (ガトー)
----------------------------------------

*Background: One of the 3 great Priests. He hates humans for their stupidity 
and weakness, but his hate could be driven out by Marth.......
*Class: Priest
*My comments: Unfortunately, you get this great old guy so late in the game 
that he's only useful if your army still stinks after a full 24 out of 25 
chapters. If that's the case, though, only Medeus and his Magic Mamkute guard 
will have nothing to fear from him, since anybody else who dares take him on 
will most likely get ripped apart. And don't forget to use his Reserve Wand 
if needed. BTW, Gato has the same growth ratings as Ellis if you didn't know. 
Not that it matters much at all.......
*Obtained by: You start with him on Chapter 25 (the final Chapter)

4. Credits
========================================

I must thank the members of the FESS Board at 
http://fessforum.proboards11.com/index.cgi for their help, especially the 
Fireemblem.net post.

I'd like to thank Fireemblem.net anyway, because they provide information, 
albeit in Japanese.

I'd like to thank Nintendo, and Intelligence Systems for this game AND SSBM, 
and anybody else involved in making SSBM, since SSBM is pretty much the 
reason why I even play Fire Emblem games in the first place.

I'd also like to thank http://www.solon.org/cgi-bin/j-e for helping me 
translate some of the things, and the Kana Books by James W. Heisig for 
letting me navigate through the Kana. I'd also like to thank Fire Emblem 3 
(the game) for helping me find out about the Red Dragon Stone among other 
things, and the FE3 FAQ writer for help on FE3 as well.

And give a good hand to AdamantNo1 for his Fire Emblem shrine at RPGC. The 
address of the shrine is http://tartarus.rpgclassics.com/~fe1/

This is copyright 2002 Juigi and any of the sources. If I find out you've
