***********************************************************************
Hey, Eaichu250 speakin here.
I'm attemping to write a complete guide(this guide covers weapons) for Fire 
Emblem 3, since it is on major demand, plus the fact that it is one of my 
favorite games of all time.
This guide is meant to give you the idea of which characters are useful, and 
which ones are as useful as a broken plane.
This guide will also cover each class, what each class can equip, use, and 
general base stats.

Fire Emblem 3 is 100% Japanese. No verisons of this game were released in 
the states. It's one of the best Strategy-RPG's ever made(IMHO) and that 
fact alone wants me to write an FAQ for this.

I hope this FAQ will answer all the questions and such you have, if you have 
any more questions, don't be afraid to nail me at -
lowlyeaichu@hotmail.com

Now, on with the FAQ!

3: Character Guide -

Summary -

Okay, the purpose of this guide is to give you information on each 
character's strengths, and weaknesses. Most characters are pretty good, but 
some are just plain disasters.

This guide will be covering all of the characters in Book 1 and 2.


Leveling up Tips -

Hoshi Orb - These are orbs you receive throughout some locations in the 
game. These are VERY helpful items, giving you special effects in battle, 
and making your stat gains go straight through the roof. Give these to a 
character if you want some insane gains!

Power Levelling(or that's what they call it... :O) - This is when you go to 
an arena and try to gain as many levels as humanly possible. Basically, once 
you find an arena surronded by some shops, you can gain tons of gold, and 
keep making the character enter the arena and winning battles and gaining 
experince. However, if it looks like yer character is going to die in the 
heat of battle, you better jam the B button or you'll have a dead unit!


                                     Book One Character Guide



Heh, okay. Let's get on with this crazy guide, shall we?


Book 1 characters:


******
[Lord]
******


Marth:
Marth is the Prince of Alitia, and a descendant of the Hero who had slain 
Medeus over 1000 years ago, he carries the blood of Anri, and has the 
ability to use the sacred sword, Falchion.

This is the main character of the game. He has very low stats for most 
throughout the game, and he has some pretty weak stat gains too, however, he 
CAN use the Rapier weapon, which is quite a useful weapon, and Marth can 
also equip the Falchion, which is useful for trying to defeat the last boss, 
otherwise, he's somewhat poor as a fighting unit, and should always be 
protected.

Class Change - None. Maxes out after 20 levels.
Rating for Marth - 5/10
Stat Growth -
[HP - Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Weapon Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
90% -   50%   - 40% -  50% -70% -   40%       -  20%  -   3%
Looks - He has blue hair and wears a tiara. He aint a hard character to 
miss.
How you get him - ...
Support Effect - Katua(10% Supported) Sheeda(10% recieved), Ellis(10% 
recieved)

***************************
[-Social Knights-Paladins-]
***************************

Abel:
Abel is a Social Knight companion to Marth, he is loyal to his Lord, and is 
the younger brother of Kain.

This is one of the first Social Knights you get in the game. He sports green 
hair, and starts out faster, but a bit weaker than his counterpart, Kain. 
Abel is one of the better units in the game, he gets decent level ups. And 
when he's maxed out, he has quite amazing stats. He's a bit faster than 
Kain, but weaker on the offense.

Class Change - Paladin.
Rating for Abel - 8/10
Stat Growth -
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
70%-  40%   - 50% -  50%- 40% -  70%   -  20% -     3%
Looks - Abel is wearing green armor, and has green hair.
How you get him - He starts out with Marth.
Support Effect - Est(10% supported)


Kain:
Kain is a Knight under the command of Marth, he is very loyal to his Lord, 
and will do anything to protect him and help him within his ability.

This is one of the first Social Knights you get in the game. He sports red 
hair, instead of green. He starts out stronger, yet somewhat slower than his 
counterpart, Abel.
Kain gets quite amazing stats for just a Social Knight, he gets somewhat 
better levels than Abel, and ends up being one of the best members in the 
force. I think he's a bit better than Abel, and ends up maxing a TON of 
stats. He's stronger than Abel, but is somewhat slower until both of them 
max out.
He also gets pretty high defense for some reason.

Class Change - Paladin.
Rating for Kain - 9.5/10
Stat Growth -
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
60%-  30%   - 60% -  60%- 50% -  90%   -  20% -     3%
Looks - Kain is wearing red armor, and is sporting red hair.
How you get him - He starts out with Marth.
Support Effect - None


Jeigan:
Jeigan is an old Paladin that is trying to protect his Lord, no matter what.

This is the starter of the trend called "Jeigan Character", or a character 
that starts out somewhat strong, but ends up being complete crap by the end 
of the game. Jeigan starts out a little strong, thanks to the Silver Spear 
he's holding, but he isnt really much, due to the fact his stat growth is 
almost nothing... However, he can give his Silver Spear to Sheeda, since she 
needs it more then this putz does.

Class Change - None, he starts out promoted.
Rating for Jeigan - 0.5/10
Stat Growth -
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
10%-  10%   - 10% -  10%- 0% -   0%   -    0% -     3%
Looks - Jeigan has white hair, and is wearing purple armor that has spikes 
in it.
How you get him - He starts out with Marth.
Support Effect - None


Hardain -
Hardain is the brother of the King of Orleans, Hardain is a man who refuses 
to give up to the Empire, and is known as the "Wolf of Orleans", he will 
continue fighting against the empire for his state, until he no longer can.

Hardain's another Social Knight, but unlike the band of idiots that start 
with him, he's actually quite powerful. He gets good stat gains, and starts 
out pretty strong. Really high strength, and his defense becomes amazingly 
good, he always maxes a ton of stats in my files.

Class Change - Paladin
Rating for Hardin - 9.5/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
50%-  30%   - 50% -  60%- 30% -  70%   -  20% -     3%
Looks - Hardain is wearing a white turban, and has a moustache, also has 
brown hair.
How you get him - Hardain starts out on the left side of the map on Chapter 
4.
Support Effect - None


Roshe -
Roshe is the leader of a group of four that is protecting Hardain under 
Princess Nina's order, he will protect his King, no matter what.

Roshe is an excellent unit, he dosent look too promising at first, but soon 
he will get extremely high Strength, Skill and Speed, his defense will be 
quite high, going higher then your other Social Knights or Paladins, and is 
a very balanced character with no faults. Just beware that he has a low 
Weapon Skill growth, but a manual or two will fix this small problem.

Class Change - Paladin
Rating for Roshe - 8/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
80%-  40%   - 50% -  40%- 50% -  30%   -  30% -     3%
Looks - Roshe has purple/pinkish type hair, he is also wearing a suit of 
purple armor.
How you get him - Roshe starts out with Hardain in Chapter 4.
Support Effect - None


Villuck -
Villuck is a Knight under Hardain and Roshe's command.

Villuck.. is another Social Knight. Unlike Roshe, Marchis, and Hardain, this 
very Social Knight that joins with Hardain, is complete trash. Villuck will 
boast high Weapon Skill, and maybe decent HP, however, his skill, speed, and 
luck gains suffer badly, and his Strength rarely rises up to damage his 
usefulness even more.
Villuck is a poor unit, and shouldn't be used for anything.

Class Change - Paladin
Rating for Villuck - 1.5/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
50%-  30%   - 10% -  20%- 10% -  70%   -  10% -     3%
Looks - Villuck has red hair, and has a suit of blue armor. Also note the 
fact, that Villuck is looking straight at you.
How you get him - Starts with Hardin.
Support Effect - None


Marchis -
Marchis is the brother of the High Priestess of Macedonia, Lenna. Marchis 
was forced by Prince Micheal to fight for his country, Marchis hates 
fighting, but he feared the punishment he would receive if he did not fight 
for Prince Micheal.

Marchis is another Social Knight, while he dosent seem too promising at 
first, like Roshe, he can grow into a small powerhouse if trained up. 
However, Marchis still suffers from the fact that he is terribly outclassed, 
and can be passed up by other Social Knights. Use Marchis if you really want 
another Social Knight.

Class Change - Paladin
Rating for Marchis - 5/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
50%-  40%   - 30% -  20%- 20% -  70%   -  20% -     3%
Looks - Marchis has red hair, also wearing blue armor, like Villuck, looks a 
bit dumb, for lack of a better word.
How you get him - Have Renna speak to Marchis in Chapter 4.
Support Effect - None


Medea -
Medea is a stubborn Paladin, that has been captured and locked in the prison 
of Bares. Medea is a long time friend of Astoria.

Medea starts out as a promoted Paladin, she's one of the few female Social 
Knights in Fire Emblem history.
Medea gets decent gains, she's pretty well rounded, her strength stat stays 
somewhat low, however, and she isnt powerful enough to match up to the 
better Social Knights, if you're already using Roshe/Kain/Abel/Hardain, and 
want ANOTHER Paladin, take her along.

Alan's also a bit better then Medea, although, they could be treated as 
equals in some aspects.

Class Change - Starts out promoted.
Rating for Medea - 6/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
80%-  30%   - 50% -  50%- 10% -  50%   -  20% -     3%
Looks - Medea has blue hair, and is wearing purple armor.
How you get her - She joins automatically in Chapter 10.


Alan -
Alan is the retired, Captain of the Knights, of Alitia. Alan joins Marth in 
hoping to make a difference, and help out his country. Although, his 
neighbor has quite a grudge against him.

Alan is an excellent unit, he gets decent gains, and he's the most well 
rounded Paladin out of the choices, although he dosent excel in any stat, 
all of stats will stay at a averagly high level, making Alan a useful unit 
for any situation.

Alan also starts with high stats, adding on to this.

Class Change - He's already promoted.
Rating for Alan - 7/10
Stat Growth:
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
50%-  50%   - 30% -  40%- 40% -  50%   -  10% -     3%
Looks - Alan has blond hair, purple armor with some spikes in it, also looks 
a little scary or such.
How you get him - In Chapter 13, he's in one of the two houses. You have to 
choose between him and Samson.


**********************
[Armor Knight-General]
**********************


Doga:
Doga is a Knight under Marth's command.

Doga is easily one of the best armors in the game. His stat growth isnt too 
good, but he gets MASSIVE defense. After a while of leveling, Doga seems to 
stat to get quite fast, get stronger, and get much better gains than when he 
started. He has massive defense, strength, and gets somewhat fast. His skill 
is somewhat low, though.

Class Change - General.
Rating for Doga - 9.5/10
Stat Growth -
[HP-Strength-Skill-Speed-Luck-Wpn Skill-Defense-Mgc Defense]
60%-  20%   - 40% -  40%- 20% -  20%   -  10% -     3%
Looks - Doga has green hair, and is covered up by thick blue armor.
How you get him - He starts out with Marth.
Support Effect - None


Michelan -
Michelan is a captured Knight of Bares.

Michelan gets.. really bad gains, it's almost sickening to see such a 
horrible sight. Michelan is far outclassed by Toms, Doga, and Lawrence. Do 
not bother using Michelan, for he is quite weak, and can only be used as an 
effective wall.

Toms -
Toms is another captured Knight of Bares.

Toms is a lot better then his partner, Michelan, with decent gains, and a 
pretty good fighting ability, Toms can be treated as another Doga. Use him 
along with Doga and Lawrence for an excellent wall of defense.

Lawrence -
Lawrence is an old General, who is refusing to give up the fight for his 
country, Grunia, no matter what.

Lawrence is the BEST armor in the game! Lawrence starts out promoted, and 
with somewhat low stats, but with a several level ups, you will see that his 
gains FAR outclass Doga's in every single way, and will soon become better 
then Doga when trained up for a bit.

Lawrence is an excellent partner for Doga.

Sheeda:
Sheeda is the Princess of Talis, she's kind and sweet, and also has a bit of 
a crush on Marth.

Sheeda is one of the best flying characters in the game, period. She starts 
out with amazing stats, and gets very good stat gains. Sheeda's strength 
stays somewhat low for a while, but it starts to raise like crazy after a 
while. Sheeda's only problem is that she gets somewhat low HP, but when she 
promotes, she'll have enough defense to cover that poor part easily.

Minerva -
Minerva is the Princess of Macedonia, brother of King Micheal. Minerva 
fights for her country as a General of her own army.

She's a decent Dragon Knight. I don't really like using her, though. She's 
gets good stats, and has a very high defense. She's also one of the few 
characters that gets a different face sprite when speaking to other people.

Class Change - Already class changed, starts as Dragon Knight.

How you get her - In Chapter 8, after you free Maria, have Marth speak to 
her. She wont attack you, so don't worry.
Support Effect - Maria(10% sisters)


Katua -
Katua is the second eldest Pegasus Sister, and a fighter for Minvera's army.

Katua is one of the three Pegasus Sisters, while her sisters start out much 
stronger then she does, Katua will end up as one of your best units in no 
time. Katua gets the Skill and Defense of the Pegasus Sisters, along with 
good HP growth.

Perfect for any team.

her!(Chapter12)


Paola -
Paola is the eldest Pegasus Sister, and also a fighter for Minerva's army.
Paola is another Pegasus Sister, Paola is the strongest STARTING Pegasus 
Sister, but she gets soon outclassed by the other ones(Sheeda, Katua, Est), 
Paola gets the highest Strength out of all the Pegasus Sisters, though, so 
don't be too afraid to take her along, her Speed and Luck are so generally 
pathetic, though.

Also, keep Paola around for the Triangle Attack! Whoo! Killer attack!

Est -
Est is the youngest Pegasus Sister, and also another fighter of Minreva's 
army.

She's the third Pegasus sister, and easily the strongest one. Est gets 
AMAZING stat gains, and can be one of your most powerful characters when 
given enough leveling. Another great thing about Est, is that she comes with 
the Miracle Sword, and if you have the other two Pegasus sisters, you can 
surrond an enemy with all three, and perform an attack that does TRIPLE 
damage. Do NOT attempt to miss Est, she's easily one of the best, and coming 
with the Miracle Sword makes it all even better.

Gordon:
Gordon is a friend of Marth, and also another fighter in his army.

Gordon is one of the better archers in the game. He starts out with somewhat 
low stats, but he soon gets great stats if given enough leveling. He gets 
good stats all around, and maxes quite a few. His only problem is his 
pathetic lack of defensive powers, so keep him WELL protected.

Kasahim -
Kasahim is a man that joined the Garda pirates in order to get Medicine for 
his mother, who is ill.

Kasahim's a another bow user. He's just like Gordon, except he has better 
stat growth than Gordon for a while, but in the end, Gordon will end up 
having higher stats than Kasahim. Netherless, Kasahim is a pretty good bow 
user, and is a worthy addition for a team.

How you get him - Have Sheeda speak to him, he's one of the enemy archers in 
Chapter 2.
Support Effect - None


Zaggaro -
Zaggaro is the elder brother of Thomas, and a Horseman in Roshe's group.

Zaggaro starts out as a promoted Horseman, he starts with extremely low 
stats for such a unit(bad news) and he wont be able to max any of his stats, 
unless you buff him up with items that increase strength, Zaggaro will be a 
useless unit, and not be capable of anything. If you need a real Horseman, 
look to Kasahim.

Ulf -
Ulf is another Horseman in Roshe's group.

Ulf's a bit better than Zaggaro, but his gains are still extremely low, 
quite a problem... as said before, Kasahim is better, so you wont need to 
bother with this guy.

George -
George is the Captain of Archers of Akaneia, and joins Marth to help him in 
a righteous cause.

George isnt actually all that bad, he's weaker then a promoted Gordan, and 
can be matched up to a promoted Kasahim, and easily beats most other 
archers. George starts with blazing high stats, and his gains arent really 
too amazing, he can be pretty good with a couple of stat boosting items, as 
he only needs one or two to be an awesome unit.
George works extremely well with a promoted Thomas/Gordan, so don't be 
afraid to use him.

Thomas -
Thomas is the younger brother of Zaggaro, and is a captive in the castle of 
Bares.
Thomas is decent, while he does get pretty low gains, he's still a bit of a 
powerhouse when promoted, and can work extremely well with George or a 
promoted Gordan. Thomas is an excellent choice if you need another archer, 
and already have taken George, Kasahim or Gordan.

Oguma:
Oguma is a former slave of the Dolunan Empire, and is the leader of a small 
army in Talis, Oguma tries to protect Sheeda and Marth to the best of his 
ability.

Oguma is the first swordfighter of all time, and of course, he rules. He 
gets amazing stats for every single stat, his stat growth is excellent. And 
he's so strong and powerful, train this guy as much as possible, and when 
it's time, he's going to get a Miracle Sword. ;]

Navvare -
Navvare is a well known Sword Fighter throughout the land, and has joined 
the bandits for reasons unknown.
Another sword fighter. He's almost the same as Oguma, except he has slower 
gains, but is still a very worthy addition. He starts out with a Kill Sword, 
and pretty good stats. He's one of the best fighters in the game, and 
shouldn't be thrown into the trash heap.

troops have gathered to the north, he asks to join Marth, with his comrade, 
Raddy.

Ceazer is another sword fighter, he starts with decent stats, with techinque

Raddy is another Sword Fighter, and is pretty powerful to kick it off!
Raddy starts with somewhat low stats, but he quickly becomes more powerful

Astoria -
Astoria is a promoted Sword Fighter, forced to work for the Dolunan Empire 
and Gra, and is in love with Medea.

Astoria starts out promoted, gets good all around stat gains, and is a 
pretty decent unit dispite starting promoted, his only problem is that he's 
weaker than all the other sword fighters(Raddy, Oguma, Navvare) but he can 
still be a good unit.

Astoria is better then Samson, dispite what some people say, Astoria ends up 
stronger then Samson when given a couple of level ups, and Samson will 
struggle trying to match up to Astoria.

Medea speak to him.


Samson -
Samson is the known Sword Warrior of Aritia, he decides to help Marth out 
when Marth finds him in the village. He has a bit of a grudge against Alan, 
however.

Samson is another Sword Fighter, he starts out promoted and with pretty high 
stats too. However, the main problem is that Samson's gains completely blow, 
and he will quickly become weak in a matter of seconds. He's not TOO bad, 
though.

Saji & Maji:
Saji and Maji are Axe Fighters from Oguma's small army.
Both of them are axe fighters, they arent really too good. For the first few 
chapters of the game, they can be pretty powerful, getting high attack and 
defense(it goes up a lot) but they cant even class change, and will be left 
at a disadvantage by the end of the game. I don't really suggest using them, 
although they arent that bad.

Class Change - None

Looks - Brown haired guys.
How you get them - They start with Oguma.

Barts:
Barts is another fighter for Oguma's army.
Another axe fighter, he's stronger than the other two axe fighters you get. 
But still isnt too useful, he gets high strength, and his stats go up very 
well. Barts will get high defense and strength, and many of his other stats 
wont be too bad. Barts cannot class change either, which is quite a shame, 
because he is quite strong.

Julian -
Julian is a brave thief that has a crush on Renna, he helps her escape from 
her clutches in a bandit's fortress on Devil's Mountain, but they are 
quickly persued by Navvare.

Julian's a thief. He starts out with Renna trying to escape from a gang of 
bandits, he's a VERY useful person in the party. He can fight pretty well if 
given the level ups, and he's very useful for unlocking chests and the such.

Meric -
Meric is a mage in training of Khadein, when he heard about the war that was 
going to start, he fled to Orleans, and tried to find Marth and attempt to 
help him.

Meric is the first dude to make the trend that is the "Green Haired Insanely 
Overpowered Wind Mage of Death", actually I made that up, but it's still 
true.
Meric is your first ever mage, he gets decent stats at best, his strength 
and skill seem to stay rather low, which is kind of annoying in the later 
parts, where enemies get more magic defense than ever. Meric can become 
super-powerful if you buff him up with the items that increase strength, 
because he'll get 3x stronger each time.

He's a priest. Starts out promoted, and is pretty good for a while. He can

Minerva obey the Dolunan Empire.

Augh, she's nothing compared to Renna, and her power barely goes up, even

Linda is the daughter of the Miroa, the person who could use the powerful 
Rezizia, and Aura spells. Linda was sold as a slave into the slave market.

Ah, a rival for Meric. Linda's another mage, and gets amazingly high stats 
once you start training her. Many people don't bother using Linda because 
she starts off weak, but she is ONE of the best units in the game. She's the 
only mage that can use Rezizia and Aura, which means she can be VERY 
powerful. She can use staves when she promotes.

Boa -
I've tried him again, and my opinion still stands. Boa gets pathetic growth 
rates, and is almost completely useless. He starts out with semi decent 
stats for a healer/fighter, but isnt strong enough to be useful at neither.
Use Wendel if you REALLY need a guy like this.

Ellis -
Ellis is Marth's sister, she used her power to help Marth escape from the 
destruction of Alitia, and was soon captured by Garnef soon after, because 
of her special power to revive the dead.

Ellis starts out as a unpromoted Priest, she gets good all around gains, if 
she actaully gains a level, but she is still very useless, she can use her 
Ohm staff in the level you get her in to revive a character, but that's all
she's really capable of.

He's a Mamcoot. He starts out pretty strong with his Dragon Stone, but is 
actually, one of the worst characters in the entire game. While he gets a 
POWERFUL attack, and is pretty invincible(defense is 14+) when he's 
transformed, he dosent get any stat gains at all, and his skill rating 
SUCKS. He NEVER hits any enemies, and he always usually blunders at his job.

Chiki -
Here we go, a mamcoot that actually can be super powerful. Chiki gets 
amazing stat ups, and gets INSANE stats when she transforms. She can use all 
the dragon stones, plus her OWN special dragon stone, which transforms her 
into a extremely powerful Dragon, with amazing stats. She must not be 
missed, for she is one of the best characters in the game, oh, did I note... 
she has anti-dragon breath, which allows her to take less damage from 
Dragons(only if she's transformed with her God Dragon Stone)

Chainy -
Chainey is... I don't have a bloody clue.

Chainey's a mimic! Chainey can mimic other people and mimic every stat for 
HP, give him a several HP boosting items and he could be an extremely 
powerful unit!
After saying all I said above, Chainey is an extremely useful unit if you 
transform into a strong unit. Give him the HP boosting items and he IS a 
powerful character.

Book 2 characters -


Marth -
Once again, Marth is back. He's still the leader of the time, but he's 
starts out quite strong, and stays strong for a while. He gets good gains, 
and ends up with good stats, even if he maxes only after twenty levels. This 
character is no fluke. Give Marth some Hoshi Orb fragments if you really 
want good stat gains with him...

Cecila -
Cecila is a Social Knight, she starts out stronger than the other starting 
Social Knights, but she dosent get too powerful, even with some work put 
into her, she's a good unit for the starting areas, but she starts to slow 
down pretty quick.

Roddle -
Roddle's a Social Knight. :p

I think I bashed this guy too much last time. Roddle can actually be pretty 
good if leveled up enough, he gets good all around stats, and his gains 
aren't too bad, he's one of the best Social Knights in the game, so he's a 
pretty good pick. It's just hard to power him up to the point where he's 
super powerful, as he starts out quite weak.

Luke -
Luke's another social knight, he DOES get pretty high skill and speed, 
that's a good thing I've seen from him so far, all his other stats seem to 
suffer like mad, however, but he isn't actually too bad.
Luke's also a lot better then Cecila, he just needs a bit of training to 
catch up.

Alan -
He's a Jeigan character. Alan starts out strong, and helps the team through 
their first battles. Unlike Jeigan, Alan can actually get some stat-ups, but 
the stat ups are usually dismal, and do not help at all. Try not to use this 
character too much, unless you need to catch a thief or something in the 
beginning stages.

Also, I hate the fact that they made one of my favorite characters in the 
starting book so weak in the second.
Poor Alan. Oh well, atleast he's BETTER then Jeigan..

Gordan -
He's pretty much the same exact clone of the first Gordan. He gets the same 
good levels, and ends up as a pretty strong character overall. He's much 
weaker compared to his younger brother, Ryan, though. But if you don't feel 
like building Ryan up, Gordan is your man.

Ryan -
He's FANTASTIC! He gets insane level ups, and insane stat gains. He turns 
out to be a complete tank and will be able to destroy everything in his path 
if leveled up like mad. Ryan is the best archer in the game, and is second 
to none, pretty sucky defense and total hit points, though.
He's also Gordan's little brother.

Doga -
I over rated this guy last time, Doga is your first armor knight, and pretty 
much the default armor knight throughout the game. Doga gets pretty low 
gains, due to the fact he has to be a tank, and be relient on defensive 
powers. Doga isn't actually the best armor knight in the game either, but he 
can be pretty good once revved up enough, just hope that his defense goes up 
once in a while.

Malissa -
Malissa gets the title of being the prime healer in this game. Malissa gets 
good stats gains, and ends up with pretty decent stats overall, she can heal 
other characters, and when she is promoted, she can fight aswell as heal.
Malissa gets a pretty high power score, although this isn't too much to 
notice, it's still quite scary.

Katua -
Katua is one of the three Pegasus sisters, and as always, she's one of the 
strongest units in the game. Katua gets great gains, and ends up being 
extremely powerful. She's quite fast when you first get her, so just level 
her up, and you'll have a great unit.

Warren -
Warren is the default Horseman for the team, he gets decent all around stat 
gains, and isn't too bad in any area, except he's somewhat weaker than 
Kasahim, which leaves him pretty useless compared to his rival. Warren is 
pretty good if you need another horseman, or don't want to use Kasahim.

Paola -
Paola is another Pegasus Knight, and she starts off insanely powerful, 
around 4x stronger than most of your troops at the point you get her, if you 
keep building her up, she'll stay pretty powerful too. Paola is an excellent 
unit, and she gets very good gains all around, aside from luck, but that 
isnt really needed too much.

Linda -
Linda's a mage, the only mage that can use Aura and Reziza. Linda gets 
amazing gains for all catergories, and will end up being one of your 
strongest units, and with the Aura in her hand, she will do AMAZING damage 
to any enemy. Linda should not be missed(she cant be missed, but I just have 
to say this ;)), and is easily one of the best characters in the game.

Julian -
Julian's a thief. Julian is still, one of the best units in the game, he 
gets amazing gains, starts with good stats, and can open any chest or door 
at will!
Julian should not be missed by any chance, or you will have a hard time with

Marchis -
Marchis is a Social Knight, he sucks and gets the same old bad gains he had 
in the first book. I honestly don't see the point of this annoying 
character, he just isnt worth it at all. Kill him or recruit him, I would 
rather kill him for experince, though...

Oguma -
Oguma is still super powerful. Oguma gets great gains, and stays extremely 
powerful for quite a while. Oguma could might as well be the strongest unit 
in the game, for he's REALLY strong and stays like that for throughout the 
whole game.

Yubello -
I bashed him a bit too much last time...
Yubello gets GREAT power stats for a magic class and he gets good decent all 
around gains for a small mage like himself, he starts out somewhat weak, but 
he can be a worthy rival to other mages when revved up.

Yummina -
She's a healer, and not a pretty good one. Yummina gets low overall stats, 
and isnt a really good healer. She however, is the exclusive user of the 
rescue staff, which brings a character from ANY spot on the map, right next 
to her. You'll her need for a couple of spots(Meric, Est, Medea), and such.

Kasahim -
I cant believe I said Kasahim was worse than Warren. Kasashim actually gets 
better gains for almost every stat, and is probably the strongest Horseman 
in the entire game. Kasahim is an excellent Archer unit, and is a worhy 
addition to your team, his power stat also rocks the kasba.

Sirius -
Sirius starts out as a promoted Paladin, so people might think he sucks, but 
Sirius is quite the opposite!
Sirius starts out with great stats, and is a good deal stronger than more of 
your troops, also, Sirius gets great stat gains, and is one of the strongest 
units in the game overall. I would NEVER ditch Sirius, as he always ends up 
as one of the strongest guys in the game for me...

You can also get Ricardo in Chapter 6 by attempting to catch him AGAIN.

Sheeda -
Sheeda's back, and she seems to have changed a lot since you have seen her 
in the first book, her strength dosent go TOO high, like it did in the first 
book, but her speed-skill and other stats will raise amazingly high, making 
her one of the best Pegasus Knights in the game.

Samuto -
Samuto is a sword fighter that looks just like Navvare, in order to fufill a 
promise or something to Navvare, even if he looks and fights like him, he's 
still quite weak and pathetic. Samuto gets bad gains, and has bad starting 
overall stats, he does come with a Kill Sword, though, which can be gladly 
given to Oguma or Sirius at this point.

Fina -
Fina's a dancer, which is one the most useful classes in the game, Fina can 
use her dance when she is next to another unit to give them another turn, 
aside from this, Fina gets AMAZING stat ups, she will clock in high stats, 
dispite not being able to promote, and will be able to defend herself very

Banetou is actually pretty useful in the second book this time around, he 
can be used for a couple certain chapters, since he gets a great attack 
boost against Ice Dragons, which are weak to fire. But for the love of

Minerva is a promoted Dragon Knight with massive defense. Minerva seems to

Looks - Has green hair.
How you get her - Open the rightmost door in Chapter 14.


Est -
Est is one of the three pegasus sisters, and the final one that you can get. 
Est gets amazing stat gains as always, and she ends up being one of the most 
powerful characters in your army if just trained up enough.
When you have all three Pegasus sisters surrond an enemy, and have one 
attack, they will do a triple damage attack that does MASSIVE damage, and 
usually kills the enemy I one hit.

Class Change - Dragon Knight
Rating for Est - 8.5/10

Looks - Has pink hair.
How you get her - Starts off in a cell in Chapter 15.


Abel -
Abel is one of the strongest units in the game if just trained up enough. By 
the time you get him, you'll have a couple of Hoshi Orbs, which give MASSIVE 
boosts to stats when a character is holding them, give Abel a couple, and 
he'll be up to bar with your other guys in no time.

Abel is still pretty good without the Hoshi Orbs too, he can match up Kain 
or Sirius in no time at all, just needs a little bit of training.

Class Change - Already promoted.

How you get him - Have Marus speak to him in Chapter 15.


Astoria -
Astoria starts out as a Hero, Astoria starts with good stats, and is an 
excellent unit for any situation, he just needs some level upping to catch 
up with some of the stronger units.

Astoria is better then Samson, give him a several level ups and Samson will 
have  a hell of time trying to catch up.
Class Change - Already promoted.

Looks - Has blond hair.
How you get him - Have George speak to him in Chapter 16.


Sheema -
Here we go! Sheema is easily one of the strongest, if not, the best armored 
unit in the game! Sheema gets amazing stat gains for a armored knight, and 
she will easily max out many of her stats, including speed. Not to mention 
she starts with an amazing defense score, which goes up rapidly when she 
gains some levels. Just save some enemies for her to beat up on, and she'll 
be super powerful in no time.

Class Change - Already promoted.

Looks - She has brown hair.
How you get her - Have Marus speak to her in Chapter 17. But do NOT kill 
Gra's soliders, or you will not be able to recruit her.


Samson -
Samson starts out with amazing stats, all of his stats are really high, and 
it only takes a couple of levels for him to max some stats, however, due to 
the fact he has such horrible gains, it will take him a while to max some of 
his stats.
Use him if you like, though, he's not too bad.

Class Change - Already promoted.

Villuck -
Villuck cannot be recruited, although it looks as if he can, Roshe is the 
only one that is willing to help the team this time around.

Villuck also sucks, I just had to add that in. And I always have Villuck die 
in the first book just to laugh. ._.

Class Change -
Rating for Villuck - -10/10
Stat Growth:
Looks - Red Hair

Roshe -
My god. Look what they did to Roshe! Just look what they did! *cries*
Roshe starts out as a promoted Paladin, with very low stats, although Roshe 
does get some pretty good gains, it's just not enough to save this guy from 
the pit of uselessnes.

Roshe still looks kickass, though, use him if you like, as he isnt too bad, 
but he wont be maxing any stats(except for Strength) and he does end up with 
quite a high Defense score.

Class Change - Already promoted.
Rating for Roshe - 4/10

Ulf and Zaggaro -
You cant recruit these guys.
Also, I would like to add, these guys disgrace Archers in every single way 
possible, please take tons of enjoyment in killing these two.

Class Change -
Rating for Ulf and Zaggaro -
Stat Growth:
Looks - Ulf has green hair. Zaggaro has purple.
How you get them -

Medea -
Medea comes around a bit too late to be too useful, but she isnt too bad, 
she can be pretty good if you need one more spot to be filled.

Class Change - Already promoted.
Rating for Medea - 5/10

Looks - Has blue hair.
How you get her - She joins automatically in Chapter 20.


Maria/Renna/Ellis/Nina -
Each one is a priest guarding the last boss in the last level. You'd best 
recruit them to your side and then just go fight the scarree boss.
If you don't recruit these sisters, Medeus can leech off them for HP, which 
is BAD.

Class Change - They're all promoted.
Rating for all of them - 2/10
Stat Growth: Maria has bad stat growth, Ellis/Renna and Nina have decent.
Looks - Maria is young with red hair, Renna looks older and has red hair, 
Ellis has blue hair, Nina has blond hair.
How you get 'em - Sirius talks to Nina, Minerva talks to Maria, Julian talks 
to Renna, and Maric talks to Ellis.
