Hey, Eaichu250 speakin' here.
This is a guide for the Japanese-only game, Fire Emblem 5, one of my all time
favorite Strategy games. This guide is meant to help out the high demand for
acomplete FAQ/Walkthrough for this game, and it'll help many people out with
this game.

Fire Emblem 5 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 mail me at -
lowlyeaichu@hotmail.com

Now, on with the FAQ!

-- Eaichu250


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** I. - VERISON HISTORY - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.0 - Initial release of this FAQ.

2.0-5.4 - Mostly updates for the main walkthrough section.

5.5(10/6/02) - Revamping the update, fixing a couple more things; thanks to
alextansac on the GameFAQs boards for a couple of suggestions. I also added
some more summary for a couple of chapters, but haven't added any detailed
walkthrough. I hope this helps, though!

5.6(10/8/02) - Just adding a couple more chapters, complete with
information.Nothing done on the current walkthrough yet, but if you need some
help, there
will be some stated in the chapter information sections for the chapters. I
also fixed up the Shop lists for all the chapters so far. Enjoy! ^_~

5.7(10/9/02) - Adding more chapters, no walkthrough progres done, but there's
more information for each chapter. Fixed up more shop lists, email me if I made
any more mistakes. Chapter 19 is now done!

6.0(10/12/02) - All chapter information is complete, aside from the East route
for Chapter 15. There is more then enough information to help anybody complete
the game now. Enjoy! I will be working on the main walkthrough a bit more later
on, but the progress of this walkthrough really has become great. Expect me to
be done in a week or two.

6.1(10/20/02) - Added the FAQ section. Lord Alvein is now helping out with the
translations and everything, progress is going 10x smoother then it used to,
and everything is normal again. Sorry for a small update and everything.

6.2(10/22/02) - Added more total walkthrough to the guide. Progress is going
smooth--cleared up more information, added more boss names and weaponry. Going
to start working on some of the Misc. guides soon..

6.3(3/1/03) - Haven't updated in quite a while, have I? I was thinking of
giving
the FAQ to somebody else, since I could hardly work on it, but I decided to
take it back. Once again, I should be updating frequently for this guide, and I
might be able to finish it in some time.

I have corrected a few errors that have been made in the FAQ, and completed the
scrolls in the scroll guide. There has been no total progress to the
walkthrough, but many errors have been fixed before. There are also new tidbits
to the first few stories of the chapters, so if you would like to get a scoop
in the story... there you go! Major thanks to TerrangimaFreak of FESS forums
for
translating.

6.4(3/2/03) -

Everything is going quite smoothly for now. I now have Iris Amergin as a
proofreader for this guide, which means there will hardly be any grammar
mistakes at all. I owe so much credit to her for offering; major thanks to her.
^^

Other than that, I have added a bit of work into the total walkthrough, and
revised a few parts. I added some more boss parameter stats, which might help a
few people. Salem has also been added to the character list. I apologize to
everybody that has been bothered by not having him on there.

6.5 (3/19/03) Ė

The guide now looks a little nicer now, doesnít it? Itís all been proofread and
most grammar and spelling mistakes and have been elminated from the face of
earth, so have no worry.

Also, I fixed up most of the boss parameters, and added some new ones. Hum de
dum..

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** 2 - GAME BASICS - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Fire Emblem 5 is a turn-based strategy game. It uses the similar engine from
all the other Fire Emblem games, while having a few new twists thrown in here
and there.

Fire Emblem 5 is mostly like Fire Emblem 4, but with a couple new twists
and some brand new spanking options to make it a really fresh and new game.

Unlike in Fire Emblem 4, you can now transfer items with other characters.
Another different thing: there are now several new types of maps, which have
different goals. I will explain the each different goals right here -


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Type 1 (Conquer the castle) -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the most simple kind of map, which appears in most of the Fire Emblem
games to date. The goal is simple: you just kill the boss, and have Leaf
conquer the base of the castle. Quite easy, no? Be careful, since the boss gets
a high boost from sitting on the throne.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Type 2 (Escape) -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a new kind of map. The goal of this map is to get everybody to the red
arrow. However, it wont be too easy, since there are a bunch of reinforcements
and really powerful enemies guarding the arrows.
Another thing: you have to have Leaf leave before your other units, or the
units that are left behind will be considered captured and taken away.

When your units are captured, they will be sent to Chapter 21: Gaiden, and you
will not be able to get the units back until that paticular chapter.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Type 3 (Defend!) -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is another new map. The goal is simple to hear, but it can be a real pain
once you actually try it out. The map has simply been changed around from Type
1. Now Leaf or whoever you plopped on the throne has to guard the area for a
certain amount of turns. Sounds simple? It ain't--there are usually loads of
reinforcements flooding the map, and you have to keep the perfect defensive
posiiton, or you'll be screwed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Type 4 (Pick a way out) -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

There's only one of these type of maps. The goal is simple: you have two arrows
on the map, you have to put everybody on one arrow, and then have Leaf leave.
Depending on which arrow you choose, the following chapters will be different.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
MENUS SYSTEM
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

When starting up the game for the first time, there will only be one menu...
and
that would be the menu that allows you to start a new game. After having a save
file and completing certain tasks, you will be able to access more menus.

New Game - Automatic appearance; simply allows you to start a new game.
Continue - Appears after you start a new game; allows you to start and play
FE5.
Delete - Appears after you start a new game; deletes your save file.
Copy - Appears after you start a new game; copies one save file and puts it on
another.
Elite Mode - Appears after entering a certain key combo in the New Game
selection screen; gives all units 2x experience, new game effect.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** - I. WEAPON SYSTEMS  - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, there is a plethora of weapons for your units to use, ranging from axes,
swords, bows, magic and spears. Every weapon has a certain number of uses on
it--every time you hit an enemy with a weapon, the
durability will decrease by one. Once the number completely depletes, the
weapon will turn into a broken weapon.
There's only one way to repair a weapon, and that is to use the Repair Staff,
which only has 5 uses.

Weapons will have a weight count on them. If you have, say, a BLD of 3, and you
equip a weapon that has a weight of 8, your speed will be brought down by 4,
because your BLD is 4 points lower than the weight of the weapon. Keep this in
mind, and always try to equip weapons that aren't too heavy.

Magic will always lower your speed, so if you equip a Light Magic book with
weight of 13, and your BLD is 20, it won't matter. Your speed will always
decrease by 13 points.

Also, some other weapons will give certain bonuses to stats or have special
effects. Once I have a weapon guide up, you will be able to view the special
status effects of the weapons.

Depending on how much you use a weapon, a unit's weapon skill will rise. When a
unit's weapon skill rises, he/she will be able to use weapons that he/she
could not use before. Each weapon has a level to it.
The level for weapon skill ranges from A-E.

Another thing: Bows will always have a tripled attack power against flying
units.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** II.  - DEFENSE AND DODGE BOOSTING AREAS- **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Many areas in Fire Emblem 5 will give a boost to dodge and defense. You should
always try to take advantage of this, and put your units on the spots that will
give boosts to your characters.

Here are the boosts that I currently know -

Throne -
10 DEF. 30%+ Dodge

Forest -
2 DEF. 20%+ Dodge

Moutain
4 DEF. 25%+ Dodge


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** III. - CAPTURING  - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Another new thing to Fire Emblem 5 is the capturing command.
The basic of the capturing command is that you can capture and hold enemies
that
have a
lower BLD then your units. When capturing units, you
will have to knock their HP down to zero, and then you will get them. Units
that don't have any weapons will automatically be captured.

When capturing enemies, your stats will decrease by half, and until you drop
the person, this effect will stay on the unit.

Also, your units can also capture your other units, except you don't have to
knock them down to zero HP. The unit that is trying to capture the other
unit must have higher BLD then the unit that is to be captured. Keep this in
mind.

Units that have been turned into stone can be automatically captured, although
you will never usually have the Stone spell in your hands, anyway.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** IV. - STATUS SYSTEM - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 I'll explain how each stat will affect the characters, and which ones you
should try to raise and keep an eye out for...


 Strength - Affects total damage done to enemies. Strength + Weapon Power -
Defense of enemy = Total damage done to enemy.
 Magic - Acts as magic power and magic defense. Magic + Book Power - Magic of
enemy = Total damage done to enemy.
 Skill - Adds to hit rate, CLT, Wrath Rate, and raises the chance of other
skills activating.
 Speed - Adds to dodge rate; +2 to dodge for every speed point that a unit
contains.
 Luck - Adds to dodge rate; +1 to dodge for every luck point that a unit
contains.
 Defense - Defense protects against physical attacks. Defense - Total attack
power of enemy = Damage done to unit.
 Build - Adds to build. This determines the subtraction of a weapon's total
reduction from speed, and the ability to capture other units or be captured.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** V - MISC. STUFF - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 A new option that activates after Chapter 7 is the fatigue option. Every
character except for Leaf will have a fatigue level. Basically, every time you
attack an enemy, the unit's fatigue will rise, and when the unit's fatigue has
risen past the unit's max HP, the unit will not be able to join another map.
You can give them a stamina bag to restore their fatigue. Once a unit skips
entering a chapter, their fatigue level will return to zero.


 Another option is Leadership. Some units will have leadership stars, which
give a boost to other units. Characters like Cyas will have a load of a
leadership stars, which add boosts to hit & dodge.

I heard that you can raise Leaf's leadership by finishing chapters faster then
normal.


 When a unit reaches Lv. 10 or higher, they will be able to promote using a
item called the Knight's Proof. Leaf and Linonan are the only exceptions to
this rule--they can ONLY promote through a certain event in chapters. It's
highly suggested that you wait until your units are a higher level then 10
until promoting them, however.


 Another new thing is the Fog of War, which will cloud a unit's sight in some
maps. Units will have a 3 square sight surrounding them, and torches or certain
staves will be able to increase sight in these chapters.



- Okay, that's a bunch of stuff that you might want to know about the game. I
might get some more stuff covered in the next verisons of this FAQ, but let's
get on with the walkthrough now, okay?




-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** 3. - WALKTHROUGH + FAQ- **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the main walkthrough for the game. I will be describing the storyline
output for each chapter, the shops, and the conversations that can be done in a
chapter.

Also, if you have any questions, feel free to email them to me. If it's a
common
one, it might just pop up in the FAQ. : P


FAQ -

Q: The game is too hard! How do I access Elite Mode?

A: The game is meant to be hard; it's more of a harder game then
anything else. You can access Elite Mode by going to the New Game selection,
highlighting an empty save file slot, then pressing these directions on the
directional pad.

right - left - right - left - right - left - right - right - right - left -
right
- left - right - left - right - right

If you did this correctly, you should hear a chime.

Elite Mode will appear at the bottom of the screen after pressing B. Choose
that, and you will be able to play the game with all characters possessing a
hidden
elite skill. It certainly makes the game much easier!

Q: How do I recruit this character?

A: Look at my character guide, which is one of the sections of my
FAQ/Walkthrough. It tells you how to recruit every character. If you still have
problems, email me, and I will explain it in more detail.

Q: Xavier is too troublesome to recruit! How do I find a way to get him more
easily?

A: Exactly, most people would have trouble with Xavier. I will write a
comprehensive walkthrough on how to get him and the member card when I get the
walkthrough bumpin' up to Chapter 18. Until then, just keep trying!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** I. CHAPTER ONE - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Prologue -

As ages passed and the 12 Crusaders
became the talk of legends, a great
rebellion arose and spread throughout
the Land of Jugdral.

While on the march through the Yied
Desert, Cuan and Ethlin are
suddenly attacked by the Thracian army and
die far from their homeland.

Though King Lenster fights valiantly
while grieving the loss of his sons
he, too, meets a bitter end betrayed by
his allies the Conote army.

The entire army of Thracia seizes upon this chance
and assaults Lenster's Castle.

As Lenster's army fights bravely in the face of merciless
defeat one young knight, Finn, escapes
with Prince Leaf, Lenster's infant grandson.

As Leaf gazes up at the castle cradled in Fin's arms can
he even begin to understand the
terrible sight that meets his eyes?

13 years later...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter summary -

After Lenster was conquered by Thracia and Grandbell, Fin fled with Leaf and
Nana to other places. They stayed in Tahra, Alster, and finally Fiana. Fiana
was a small village led by Eyvale. Fiana used to be a hideout for bandits,
until Eyval beat the hell out of them and took it over. She gathered the
villages' strong young warriors and formed a little band to protect other
villages from bandits and pirates. When Leaf arrived at Fiana, Eyva happily
welcomed them. Leaf respected Eyval a lot. He was also making friends with the
people of the village. And so Leaf settled in living in Fiana and slowly
maturing. Then, in the year Grand 776, Leaf was discovered by Grandbell.
Lederick and his men invaded the village to try and capture Leaf, but Leaf was
away with Eyvale's Fiana Braves fighting pirates. Unfortunately, Mareeta and
Nana stayed behind in the village and were captured. Lederick took them both
with him back to Manster while the others stayed behind to wait for Leaf to
return. When they did return, Eyval noticed that something was wrong and told
Othin to check it out. Othin came back and told them that the Empire has
finally discovered them. Eyvale told Leaf to flee while she keeps them busy,
but Leaf refused to leave without Nana. He decided to stay and fight. Of
course,
Fin goes wherever Leaf goes, so they all stayed to fight off the soldiers. When
Dagudar heard the news, he quickly came to help. Eyval revealed to Dagudar that
Leaf was really the Prince Of Lenster and apologizes for not telling Dagudar
sooner. Dagudar was willing to fight for Leaf as well. Othin also got into a
little argument with Tanya, saying he doesn't need her help. When they finally
defeated all of the enemies, they learned that Nana and Mareeta were taken away
to Manster, so they all followed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information -
This is the first chapter of the game, and of course, it looks and is pretty
easy. The main idea is to get most of the equipment from the soliders by using
the Capturing command, and get you used to the basics of the game.

Characters -
Leaf - Joins automatically. Lord.
Eyval - Joins automatically. Sword Master.
Othin - Joins automatically. Axe Fighter.
Halvan - Joins automatically. Axe Fighter.
Finn - Joins automatically. Lance Knight.
Dagudar - Joins on turn 3. Warrior.
Marty - Joins on turn 3. Mountain Thief.
Tanya - Joins on turn 3. Bow Fighter.

Villages -
House outside of town - Send Othin to this house, and he will receive the
Puche.

House - Life Ring.

House most south and right to the down - Send Halvan to this house, and he will
receive the Yuusha No Ano (Hero's Axe).

House - Iron Sword.

House - Medicine.

Shop -
Medicine 600G.


Conversations -

Eyval -> Dagudar. Eyval will speak to Dagudar, small talk.
Oushin -> Tanya. Oushin and Tanya will have a small chat.

Walkthrough:

This is a rather easy chapter. Your main goals should be sending Halvan and
Othin to their respective houses to get the Pugi and Hero Axes, and try to have
Fin capture most of the enemies--his Hero Spear allows him two hits in
a row, and he has high stats for a starting character.

Try to spread levels for the units that you want to use. Tanya can become
really powerful. Try not to have Eyval and Dagudar kill most of the
enemies, because they are rather poor characters.

The Soliders are really weak and they have poor AI, so you can usually just
sneak up on them and attack them. Leaf can use his Light Sword to heal his HP
if he gets hurt too much.

Dagudar and Marty are rather skilled at capturing (same with Fin). Use your
other units to weaken the enemies, and then have one of the characters I
mentioned try to capture some of the enemies. TRY TO CAPTURE THE ENEMIES THAT
ARE
HOLDING MEDICINE.

Also, a good trick for Tanya to get experience is to attack Weissman from a
distance with arrows. She will gain some pretty high EXP for a while, so try
doing this for a little bit.

To beat the boss, the simple way is to have Dagudar attack Weissman with the
Hammer Axe, or have Eyval attack from a distance with her Flame Sword (I would
not suggest this one, though).

You can try capturing the boss if you want his stuff, but it's a rather hard
thing to do, since the boss has a high dodge rate and defense.

Before you conquer the castle, make sure that you have Leaf use the Life Ring
you can find in one of the villages. He will need this item to help himself
survive.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** II. - CHAPTER 2 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Storyline information -

Leaf doesn't want to sacrifice others just so he can live on, so he and
Eyval continue to chase after Lederick to save Nana and Mareeta.
Meanwhile, some pirates attack Iss when Eyval and Leaf are too busy
fighting with the empire. It turns out that they're part of Lifis' gang
and they're the ones who told Lederick about where Leaf was hiding.
Of course, they got this info from some villager that they captured.
It appears that August is somehow using those pirates to help him.
His true motive was to find Leaf. He tried to stop the leader of the
pirates to stop killing all the poor villagers, but he wouldn't listen.
So when August hears about Prince Leaf, he decides to ditch these
pirates to help Leaf. When Leaf and gang arrived at the village of Iss,
they saw the Lifis' men attacking the village, so they decided to
help. Some of the villagers didn't want them there. They feared that if
Leaf saved them, Lifis would come back to kill them all once they leave.
Rolan, on the other hand, was tired of constantly being helpless and couldn't
stand it anymore, so he left his mother to join the Fiana Braves. After
they defeated all the pirates, Leaf met August. Leaf wanted to help
the villagers by destroying Lifis' gang for good and also to rescue a
captured priestess. August was willing to help Leaf and lead him to Lifis'
hideout.


Chapter information -
This is another rather easy chapter. This level is mostly populated by pirates
equipped with rather poor axes. Your characters won't get attacked too much.
There are some reinforcements, which appear in a set number of turns.
Some enemies have medicine bags, so try to capture them. It's not really all
that hard, since pirates have really low defense...

Walkthrough: This chapter begins with several pirates spread around on the
map. None of them pose a big threat, so don't worry too much about the safety
of your units.

For the first move, you should try having Fin move up and try to capture the
pirate with his Hero Spear. Fin should most likely kill the pirate.

Send everybody up, and put one of your weaker characters (preferably Leaf or
Marty) in the front so that
they can get attacked and deal some damage to the
pirates that are attacking the units in the front.

On the next turn, most of the pirates should be rather beat up, so try to
capture them. It shouldn't be too hard. Give all the axes to the axe guys, and
spread the medicine around with your other units. Most units aside from Eyval
and Dagudar should have a medicine bag. If there isn't enough, give the
medicine
bags to the characters that have low defense.

Try to get to the villages quickly, because there are reinforcement pirates
that
will
attempt to get to the villages and tear 'em down. Some reinforcements appear at
the bottom of the map, so be prepared for them.

You can get Ronan, a Bow Fighter from one of the villages. He's pretty weak
compared to Tanya, but he has high movement stars and gets unusually high
magic, so you can go ahead and use him if you like.

Make sure that you keep all the villages intact and visit every one of them
so that you can go to Chapter 2: Gaiden.

When trying to beat the boss, use Eyval and attack Baha from a distance with
her Flame Sword. She usually kills him pretty easily this way. If Baha
survives,
you can try having another character, such as Fin, finish him off.

If you managed to keep all the villages intact, and visited 'em, you will go to
Chapter 2: Gaiden. If not, you will go straight to Chapter 3 instead. However,
I really hope that you go to Chapter 2G, since you can get a really imporatant
member in that chapter.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** III. - CHAPTER 2: GAIDEN - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Storyline Information:

Chapter 2 G starts with Saphy trying to convince Lifis to help her. Saphy was
on a mission to find people who are willing to fight for Tahra. The children
there are being taken away as sacrifices to Loptos. Saphy was willing to do
anything
as long as Lifis' willing to help. Lifis just wants Saphy to be his woman (or
something like that).
He agrees to talk to his men first about helping Tahra--if Saphy is willing to
do as Lifis says. When Leaf finally arrives at Lifis' hideout, the sun has
already set. August says that all they need is a torch. Once they have it, the
battle won't be as tough. Leaf is worried, but Eyval says there's nothing to
worry about.
All they have to do is capture Lifis and take him back to Iss to let the
villagers decide on how they should punish him for his crimes. Meanwhile,
Lifis'
men aren't willing to go fight with the empire, but Lifis doesn't want to fight
either. He's just trying to trick Saphy.  When his men spot Leaf and
gang coming this way, Lifis orders them to capture them. When the battle is
finally over, Leaf meets with Saphy and is told of what was happening at
Tahra. After the lord of Tahra was dead, the empire sent their own officers to
govern the place. Soon things turned bad as the empire officals started taking
the
children there as sacrifices. The people were very unhappy, so they all elected
Linoan, the former lord's daughter, as their leader to fight back.  They hired
mercenaries to help them fight and they started bribing those officals to stop
taking their children away as sacrifices. When Blume found out about what was
going on, he sent his troops to surround Tahra. Most of the mercenaries they
hired were quickly scared away. Linoan sent out Saphy to look for anyone who's
willing to help them fight off Blume. Leaf is shocked to find out what's going
on and he decides to go with Saphy to help Tahra. After all, the lord of Tahra
kept Leaf hidden in Tahra for 5 years, so now Leaf wants to repay them. Then
Lifis
comes to beg for mercy and Saphy also says he wasn't such a bad guy and tells
Leaf not to kill him. And so Leaf takes Lifis with them to save Nana and
Mareeta, not to mention Tahra.

Chapter information:
This is a fog of war map, meaning you have limited vision on this court and
can't see everything unless you start moving your units around and expanding
the vision around 'em. You should split some characters into two groups, one to
go on the left path, and the other on the right. Also, there's a torch in this
level, which increases vision for Fog of War maps.

Characters -


Rivis. Doesn't join in chapter; will join in the next chapter if you capture
him. Thief.
Shiva. Doesn't join in chapter. Sword Fighter.

This chapter starts out different from the two other chapters that you
progressed through. For starters, the map is now completely blackened out,
except for 3-square sight around each of your units.

This chapter is pretty straight-forward. There aren't too many enemies around,
and most of them are weak. Watch out for a couple of warriors along the path,
and there are some Sword Fighters from the northwest part of the map guarding
the castle.

There's a torch in one of the two fortresses (they are next to each other) on
one part of the map. Try to get this and hold on to it.

Around turns 10-14, reinforcements will start to appear from the hidden forts
on the bottom of the map; however, they will take a while to get from the forts
to the mainland, so you shouldn't worry too much about them.

Try to capture all the enemies you find in your path. It isn't too hard, since
most enemies are still quite weak in this area, making kills easy.

Rivis and Shiva are the ending bosses. Rivis is stationed on the castle, while
Shiva is on the fort somewhere close to the castle. Don't attack either of
them! Capture Rivis with nearly any unit, he has low BLD and isn't armed, so
don't worry about it. Hold on to him and don't take his equipment.

Leave Shiva alone. You will be able to recruit him later on, so right now,
don't
worry about him.


Have Leaf conquer the castle when you're finished and everything.

** IV. -  CHAPTER 3 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Storyline information -

After sweeping away the pirates by the sea areas, Leaf continued on the path to
Manster. Leaf hurried on the path to get to Manster as fast as possible, and
happened to come by a small fortress..


Chapter information:
This is another straightforward chapter. There are units put all over the areas
of the map, and there are hardly any reinforcements in the level. The castle
has some pretty bad defense, and most of the units don't put up much of a
fight. Your new thief, Rivis, can now steal from other enemies to render them
useless! Keep this in mind, and have Rivis steal Medicine Bags and any other
weapons that he can manage to steal from other enemies. Don't be afraid to
level Rivis either.

Saphy - Joins automatically. Priest.
Rivis - Joins if you captured him in previous chapter. Thief.

This is a rather easy chapter compared to the other few. Most enemies are high
leveled, but have somewhat low stats, and the only real threat are the armors
stationed in the main castle. Eyval can usually tear 'em up.

First off, you should try to get Rivis up a couple of levels. This is rather
important, as he can actually become a bit strong with a couple of levels.
IF you got Rivis, he can steal from enemies, but only if his BLD is higher than
the weapon of the enemy he is stealing from.

There is a fire mage in this map, so have Rivis steal the fire book from him.

Just use simple tactics to defeat the enemies outside the castle. Most of them
are weak and usually miss a lot. Remember, steal the fire book from the Mage.

And as always, capture the enemies. You can also use Rivis to steal
items/staves and such. It's important that you do this, as it REALLY helps!

You should try to remember to keep a couple of strong fighters near the
entrance of the village. Put Othin and maybe Rivis near the left areas of the
map, as reinforcements will start spilling from this area. Take this chance to
get experience from the enemies, but don't go far enough to actually break your
weapons fending them off. If you DON'T want to get levels fighting these
enemies, then you can simply have units stepping on the spots where the
reinforcments will re-appear. Keep this in mind, as it will help in later
levels.

There's a Bishop inside the castle that will randomly(?) open the door around
the north part of the map and grab the Meteo and Armor Cutter from the chests.
If he DOESN'T go up and unlock the door, have a unit rush and capture him. If
he
does, you will have to carefully capture the Bishop, which is a problem, since
he is equipped with a Elfire spell as well.

The boss is easy. Have Eyval use the Fire Sword from a distance and attack him.
The fight will be over in one round, and you should know who the winner is! ^_~

BEFORE you leave, have Eyval put all her equipment in the storage area, or give
it to either Leaf or Rivis. This is important! Have Leaf|Rivis get the Baldo
scroll, and have them equipped with powerful swords before they go anywhere.
Once you're done preparing, have Leaf conquer the throne.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** V. - CHAPTER 4 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Storyline information:

Anyway, Leafy boy's in the slammer and Eyval was taken away with Lederick. He
promises to let Eyval see Mareeta. Meanwhile, Leaf makes friends with Felgus
and
Karin while he's in the slammer. Felgus was thrown in 'cause he beat up this
soldier who was being impolite to some girl (not sure if it's Karin), and I
think Karin got dragged in trying to stop Felgus. Lifis makes friends with
those bandit guys. He tricks them into helping him. Now the Magi Squad busts
into the slammer. Sety and Asvel split up with the others to save other people
while Brighton, Machua, and Lara save Leaf. They team up and break out the
other people as well. They bump into Dalshein and tell him that his kids were
taken away by the Empire as sacrifices, but Leaf saved them. He thanks Leaf and
decides to join up with them. When they leave, we get to see the big 4 having a
little chat. Manfloy (doesn't look like him is you ask me) asks how the
children
gathering is going. Beldo says everything is going according to plan. Ishutal
isn't happy with this, though. Yurius says the children are taken away to be
the
future of the new Loptos empire.

Chapter information:
This takes place inside a prison. You lost Othin, Halvan, Dagudar, Marty and
Ronan, but don't worry about them too much. You'll get them back at another
time.
You will get several new members. Although they start off a bit weak, most
of the new characters you get have potential to become powerful. Another
thing: this chapter is probably one of the hardest in the game, because there
are MANY reinforcements, and the enemies are actually rather strong,
especially towards the end.

Also, this is a new kind of map--you must now get ALL the units to the red
arrow on the map! HAVE LEAF ENTER THE ARROW LAST, OR ALL UNITS THAT DID NOT
ENTER THE ARROW WILL BE LOST!

D'oh...sorry to all those that noticed my mistake and believed it. Leaf
actually
has to enter the arrow last, not first. Uck.

 Okay, this is a REALLY tricky chapter, and it's rather hard to explain too
throughly. However, you must get everybody to the red arrow at the top of the
map. Four units--Rivis, Leaf, Karin, Felgus--are all trapped inside cells, and
they are unarmed. There are also three big guys that are armed and are in the
same cell with Rivis. They will fight for you if you free them.

 First off, have Lara set her sights on the treasure cell directly south. This
holds some treasure, and there could be a couple useful swords in there!
 Another thing: you should move Machyua up to the nearest Solider and have her
attack him. This should kill the Solider if she gets a critcal hit (which is
often), or else she will damage him badly.
Brighton should follow the group, and everybody should stick together.

 Have Lara open up the cell that has Rivis in it next. This is very important:
have Rivis either take Machyua's chest key or have Brighton do this (I wouldn't
suggest this), then have Rivis (or Brighty) be heading to open up the chests in
the area that Lara opened up.

 Have Machyua and the rest of the people head towards Leaf's cell. Send two
slightly weaker units to block the south stairway after you open up Leaf's
cell. When you free Leaf, give the group some equipment, and have Leaf and
Karin block the left stairway.

 Now, the south and left stairways should be blocked. Have whoever is remaining
head north and start unlocking some cells. Be sure you have Rivis and Lara in
that group, because they have the ability to open up stuff like this. Felgus
should hang around with the thieves, because he can fight pretty well with a
good sword.

 The armors in the north SHOULD be already eliminated by the three axe fighters
that were with Rivis. If not, Felgus should be able to finish them off with a
halfway decent sword.

 Don't open up any of the cells with neutral units in them until you are sure
that it's safe. Reinforcements will be spilling out of the right stairway by
now, so be really careful. Felgus should be able to take most of the
reinforcements, however... just give him a decent (and light) sword.

 When the reinforcements pause for a bit and you have all the treasure chests
unlocked, you should free the civilians and block the right stairway while they
escape. This will make sure that no reinforcements will come and take them
away.

 When the reinforcements pause for a couple of turns, have everybody head up to
the north door, where the red arrow is, and be stationed there. Have Felgus
stand up by the door equipped with a light sword, and have Rivis unlock the
door. After that, have Felgus pick Rivis up, and then have a unit south of
Felgus take Rivis and drop him off somewhere, so that Felgus won't be weakened.
 Then have Leaf stand where Rivis was standing, and be sure he's equipped with
the Hikari
No Ken.

 On the next turn, you'll take a couple of blows, but if everybody was in good
condition, you shouldn't have taken too much damage. Leaf should have
really beat up some of the armors in the room. Dalshein should be in either
Felgus or Leaf's face, so have Leaf try to speak to Dalshein as soon as he can.
After that, Dalshein will join you.

Okay, if you think you're lucky, send everybody into the room, but I wouldn't
suggest this. You should have Leaf and Dalshein block everybody until there's
only a few units left, as Leaf and Dalshein can do quite a bit of damage if
they are equipped with good weapons (Leaf should have Hikari No Ken equipped).

 Once most of the enemies are depleted, send in some units and finish them off.
Steal a staff from the priest and then flee the map, having Leaf go into the
red arrow BEFORE ANY OTHER UNITS! Remember this!

 If you saved all the civilians, you will go straight to Chapter 4: Gaiden. If
not, you will go to Chapter 5 instead.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** VI. - CHAPTER 4: GAIDEN - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information:
 Another fog of war map. Don't worry about the odds too much, as this map ain't
too much of a pain to win, anyway.

 This area takes place inside the same prison cell. Asvel (Young mage
apprentice
of Sety) and Sety are somewhere around the top areas of the map, and they are
both neutral units. On the south side is where you will start. The units in
this map aren't too powerful, and the reinforcements won't be coming for a
while,
so you should just quickly do what you can, and get out of the chapter quick!


Characters -

Sety. Neutral unit, doesn't join. Sage.
Asvel. Neutral unit, will join if Leaf speaks to him or if he speaks to Leaf.
Mage.

Villages - None

Shops - None

Conversations:

Karin -> Sety. Karin will receive the Sety scroll.
Leaf <-> Asvel. Asvel will join the party.

Boss: Dur: Bishop.
Equipment:
Difficulty: Pathetically Easy
Weapon Skill: ?


  This is a rather simple chapter. You will be surrounded an all angles by
somewhat weak mages and armors, along with some soldiers. None of the enemies
are a problem.

  Simply move your stronger units to stand in the front and have the weaker
ones stand behind, so they won't get attacked. In a few turns, most of the
enemies will be killed, and only a few enemies will most likely remain. If
there are ANY armors that are still around, have Leaf use the Hikari No Ken's
long range attack. He will usually kill them in one round.

  Have Rivis steal a book from one of the mages, and then have the rest of your
guys wipe out the mages. They shouldn't be any problem, as most of the
characters you have are powerful. Karin has good magic defense, too, so it
all works out well.

  Free all the children and then have Rivis or Lara unlock the north door.
Then have Leaf recruit Asvel while you have Karin speak to Sety to receive the
Sety Scroll.

  Don't worry about any reinforcements. Sety will take care of the job for you.
Unlock the door going into the deeper chambers, where the red arrow is, and
have all your party members travel in one group. Sety will kill most of the
enemies in the chambers, but you should try to snatch some kills, as experience
is VERY important. There's some treasure in the chambers, so look around
and try not to miss it.

  If you're lucky as heck, Dalshein should be able to capture an Armor Knight
that is holding a Devil's Axe, although I wouldn't try putting my money on it.

  After a few turns, get rid of the remaining enemies in the chambers, and then
have everybody escape. Don't worry about Sety; he'll be able to take care of
himself.

** VII. - CHAPTER 5 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information:
This area takes place inside Manster castle(?). There are many units spread
around the map, and it seems that you are quite outnumbered. Not only that, but
it appears that Eyval and Nanna are in an arena in the middle of the chapter,
going up against three big guys.
The main strategy for this place is to run away again. Just get everybody to
the red arrow.

  Okay, this chapter starts off with a real big bang. Eyval and Nanna are up
against three guys in the arena, and your other group is in the south area, on
the higher quarters of the castle. Leidrick and Beldo are watching Eyval and
Nanna fight the three guys.

  Your FIRST priority is to move Nanna as far right as she can go, and then
move
Eyval next to Nanna, standing to her left. This will give Eyval a small 10% h&d
boost, and it'll help.

  Move your group to the door of the arena as fast as you can, keep a
good defense, and send one of your characters armed with a good weapon to kill
the armors. Asvel can usually kill the Armors in two hits, so you
shouldn't worry too much about 'em.

  On the next turn, Eyval should be attacked by the General in the arena. She
will either tear him up really bad and also dodge his attack, or kill him...but
that doesn't
usually happen. If she DOES kill the General, you'll be having a much easier
time.

  Your group shouldn't have any problems. If you get hurt too much, just use a
potion or two. Make sure that you don't get ganged up on by those Mages
that are heading towards your group.

  On the next turn, look at how far Nanna can walk, put Eyval just ONE step out
of
Nanna's max movement range, and then have Nanna walk up to that spot and heal
Eyval if she got hurt. Make sure that you don't move Nanna to any spots where
the enemy could attack her.
 For your group, keep your defense, be healed, and keep heading towards the
door.

 On the next turn, Eyval should be attacked, and she will most likely kill the
enemies that are attacking her. Don't worry about it if she doesn't.
Your group should be completely fine.

 On this turn or the next one, Malitia will come out onto the arena, along with
a Sword Master.

 On this turn, move Eyval up to the door, and have Nanna stand right behind
her. This way, Nanna will be protected, and Eyval will also receive the
Charisma boost from Nanna. Heal Eyval if she's hurt and you shouldn't have any
problems at all.

 Keep your group in a defensive position right near the door, and when the
mages get near, have your units with the highest magic take some blows. Then
attack the mages with all your units, aside from your weaker ones.

 If Malitia came out, don't worry about her. If she attacks Eyval, Eyval will
not retaliate, so Malitia wont get killed. However, DON'T have Eyval attack
Malitia.

 You shouldn't have any problems with the mages. When you've killed all of
them,
lure out the soliders near the north door and kill them. After that, free
Eyval.

 By the way, if Galzus came out, don't attack him either, but always heal Eyval
if she gets hurt.

 When you open the door with Eyval and Nanna, Eyval will be warped to Beldo's
location and turned to stone. There is no way to avoid this, but
you will have another chance to get Eyval back in the later stages. Nanna will
not be turned to stone and will join your team.

 For the rest of the chapter, lure out the enemies and strike at them. Use
Dalshein for most luring, but don't use him to lure out any mages, and be
careful not to overestimate him.

 There's also a Meteo bishop in the stage. Have either Karin or Asvel slowly
wear out his Meteo spell, and then lure out the enemies.

 By the end of the chapter, capture the Bishop and take his stuff. Watch
out for the Yotsumung Mages. They can poison you if they hit you with their
Yotsmung spells. Don't forget to get the treasure!
When leaving the chapter, send everybody out before Leaf.

** VIII. - CHAPTER 6 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: This area takes outside Manster castle, from the direct
front entrance. There are many villages spread around, and you can still see

Okay, you're back outside once again. Don't worry too much about the odds here.
As LONG as you still have a Thief and a Thief's Key, or several Key Doors,
you shouldn't really be having any problems with this chapter. Also, have all
your units get mounted...well, the ones that can mount, at least.

Don't go near the pile of armors|archers|mages to the left. Just hang to the
right, unlock the doors, and go straight into the town. Have your Pegasus
Knight
swoop by a couple of houses and get the items inside. She shouldn't have any
problems doing this, since Karin is REALLY fast.

Have your group unlock the door to the south. Keep unlocking these doors and
then bust through the town, try to grab all the houses, and don't worry too
much about the odds. The Armors will charge at you, but they are too slow to
catch up to you. Have your Pegasus Knight get all the
houses to the far left. Take a defensive approach when getting those houses,
'cause those armors have a chance to kill her.

Keep going through the town. If the Armors get too close, use Dalshein to hold
them off for a turn or two. KEEP RUNNING, get to the red-arrow exit, and gather
your entire party there before going anywhere. Have Nanna heal any wounded
units, and just keep a strong defense. When all your units get back, quickly
have everybody escape the chapter.

If you have problems keeping defense, get everybody to the small outside area
of the exterior of the castle. There's a one-spot entrance; have Dalshein or
another unit just simply block this hole, and you shouldn't really have any
problems defending this area.

Try not to take all day in this chapter, either. There's a bunch of
reinforcements that will start spilling out of the east and west areas in the
interiors of the castle, and Galzus will soon go on a killing spree if you take
long enough. The Social Knights are nothing to
worry too much about, but Galzus is DEFINITELY 100% danger--he can total about
every single one of your troops, so play this area quickly.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XI. - CHAPTER 7  - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information:
This area takes place outside Manster, on a path leading south. This chapter is
another run-away type, and there appear to be quite a few enemies
blocking your path, but look! Shiva is in the area, along with many other sword
fighters on the left side. There are a bunch of axe fighters stationed in a
forest area.

This chapter has many reinforcements, and you will get flooded like heck
unless you have a unit proceed into the castle at the south or kill the
Paladin that will appear in the chapter.

Ugh, this is a really annoying chapter, due to the fact that getting Shiva can
be a royal pain in itself. But aside from that, there's nothing you really need
to worry about. The units that are flooding from the north will stop coming if
you either kill the Paladin that appears on the forest area near the mountain,
or just have a unit enter Hannibal's castle.

Now, for your first move, have your weak but fast people guard the area to the
south, and have Felgus and Dalshein proceed a bit to the north. Prepare for
that Paladin to come out, and when he does, kick his ass with Felgus and
Dalshein.

Now, in the next few turns, Finn and Salphy will come out of hiding. Have them
proceed straight to the castle, have your Pegasus Knight (Karin) pick up
Salphy,
and then try to sneak up on Shiva's group. Be quick, and play smart--try to
stall the
Sword Fighters, not kill them.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** X. - CHAPTER 8 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Storyline Information: The members of the Fiana Braves were reunited once
again. Hannibal gave information about a knight named Carrion. Leaf's squad
soon approached a mountain thief base of Dagudar.

Chapter information: This is a really easy chapter. Most of the enemies have
really low skill and are equipped with axes, so they miss most of the time.
This
is a GREAT area to have Carrion gain levels, as he is one of the most powerful
units in the entire game. Marty is also around, but he ain't on your side, so
have
Othin or Halvan speak to Marty to recruit the poor guy.

Remember, you have to capture the boss before 20 turns if you want to go to the
Gaiden chapter. If the turns go past 20, the boss will get on his Dragon, and
you won't be able to capture him. Don't release the boss either!

go through the halls with a ranged weapon, and most of the enemies will be
killed. The boss with have a long-range attack spell, but it shouldn't be too
dangerous. Be sure to heal when some units are weakened.

Chapter information: Pretty much a standard map. There are many weak axe
wielders spread around, and there isn't much of a threat. You should try to
get Leaf to the church as soon as possible... use Dean|Eda|Karin to carry him
over there. Also, you can carry over some other troops to help fend off the
barbarians.

Ralf and Amalda will fight most of them off for you.

Also, there are two routes to escape this chapter from. You should get
Leaf to the church, and then choose which route you want to take.

If you want an easy trip, go the east route. It's a much easier trip, and you
can still get some pretty sweet items out of it. Go this route IF you have
Oruen with you.

If you want a somewhat harder trip, go the west route. This is slightly harder,
but there are some better items to get and better characters. Also, there is a
Mage Knight named Eyrios that will join you if you don't have Oruen with you in
this route.

now, I will cover everything in the east route.
Now, this is a rather annoying chapter. There are mostly weak enemies and a
REALLY annoying boss. This isn't too hard if you have a decent healer and a
rest
staff. Keep your group together, and you can get Shanam by having Homer speak
to him.
To escape the map, go through the red-arrow on the right-top area of the map.

** XVI. - CHAPTER 18 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: A ROYAL PAIN. There are many enemies in this chapter,
along with many armors and a General guarding the throne. Most of the enemies
outside the throne are weak, but you shouldn't kill them for certain reasons.

To get the Member Card, you must keep ALL Lenstar Allied units alive, this is
MUCH harder then it seems. If you use the Warp Staff, it ain't a problem...
but you don't get Xavier.

You can kill the Friege allied units if you want, but try to keep the Lenstar
allied ones alive.

Characters -

Xavier. Enemy unit, will join if you have all the civilians in the chapter
speak
to each Armor that has a face potrait, and then have all the Armors escape from
the chapter...THEN have Leaf speak to Xavier and Xavier will willingly join.

** XVII. - CHAPTER 19 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: Not a hard chapter at all...but if you want to get either
Conomore|Amalda, then the chapter is a bit of a pain. If you went the west
route, Seluf will be able to convince Amalda to join. If you went the east
route, Miranda will be able to convince Conomore to join. This is quite hard,
since the enemies are in huge packs, and unless you already promoted Miranda
and got her speed & luck to a good level, this will be a complete pain.

Reinforcement enemies will come and wreck havoc. These are mostly Mountain
Thief(2)'s and Thieves--easy to kill, and they don't attack you either.
However,
the reinforcements at the bottom side of the map NEVER stop coming, and are
quite strong.

First off, make sure that you bring a lot of fast moving units. I really do
mean it. And be prepared to lose Sleuf in this chapter if you went the east
route, because he's a Priest... and unless you promoted him, he's most likely
going to get captured and taken away.

First off, you have one group sitting by the castle... don't move them. If you
really want to, you can send some of them down to try and help out your other
group, but I seriously do not suggest it, because that is one DANGEROUS move.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XVIII. - CHAPTER 20 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: This stage is a really big defense stage. You will start
out with each of your units being set in certain places. The goal of this stage
is to last 20 full turns AND KILL THE BOSS. This isnt as hard as it looks;
just know what you're doing, and you shouldn't have any problems at all.
There're
some treasure chests in the level, and the boss is also holding the Toroddo
Scroll, so you might want to catch that while you're here.

Note: This chapter has loads of reinforcements, so be prepared for them and be
prepared hard. Try to steal loads of stuff from the Priests; it WILL HELP
GREATLY in later chapters. Just keep small 1-spot defenses in most of the
places and keep the throne from being taken to win this chapter.

Difficulty: Mediocre (depends on your characters strength)

This is another one of the defense chapters in the game. The goal is very
simple, yet rather hard to pull off. You must have the throne protected from
all of the enemy units in 20 turns. Sounds simple? Depending on how powerful
your characters are, it might or might not be.

First off, bring all your most powerful characters. Don't bring any characters
that could be downed in around one or two hits... they will constantly get
killed and stress the living hell out of you.

When the chapter starts, most of your characters should be locked up inside the
castle and be on defense. You should move most of your characters so that
they will be able to keep any enemy units from getting inside the castle; it
does help quite a bit. Have healers be protected, too, since you will need
them.

Throughout the following turns, more enemy reinforcements will continue popping
out... such as Bishops, Long Arches, Armor Knights... all sorts of nasty
predicaments. You must keep your characters in their prime states at all times,
and make sure that not too many enemies manage to get inside the castle.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XVIIII. - CHAPTER 21 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: A really boring stage. There are loads of reinforcements
that spill out from the right side of the map in a several turns, and there are
Soldiers popping out in the two forts next to each other in the south. By that
area, there are some Roputo Mages that also come out. These guys will be
flooding the map like heck, but they aren't too hard to defeat.

There are some Dragon Knights positioned to the south. They aren't hard at all;
just lure them out and strike them with group tatics.

If you have had a unit captured before Chapter 19, then you will go to Chapter
20: Gaiden, an odd chapter where you can rescue your units from entrapment.

I honestly think that you should have each unit get a level or two here in the
arena, just press B if your units look like they might die. BE VERY AFRAID; you
should have more then enough money to pull this off.
Delmud is the MAN in the arena! Give him some scrolls to make his growth go
nuts, then ship him in. He's nearly invincible! If his HP hits below half, send
him out, but he rarely gets hit and usually kills the enemy in one-two blows.

He has a long-range spell, and he isn't too bad of a fighter up close, either.
Remember to use the Rescue Staff to rescue whatever unit you left behind.

Note: On turn 30, a several Dark Mages will come out of hiding and are equipped
with Fenrir spells. Be wary, and flee immediately when they come out, for they
will just pick off your characters!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: Hardest chapter in the game, period! There are tons of
enemies all about. Although they don't look like tough guys, due to a certain
unit being on the map, this chapter will be a pain. Cyas gives out around 50+
hit and dodge bonuses to ALL units on the map, making the enemies 10x harder
than they should be. Keep everything safe; just hold off the front area with
all you got and make sure you bring a couple of Rest Staves along.

After like... 70 turns, Cyas will leave the map. Take your FULL
OFFENSE, and go straight for the castle.

Also, when crossing the bridge, it will close up after one turn. Make sure you
get all the units to pass it before having anybody cross it.

Also, if you cross the bridge, Cyas will automatically leave, but I doubt you
can get that far without having at least ONE unit get killed...

This chapter is absoutley INSANE. You will always need to be on your toes when
trying to do anything. First off, bring your STRONGEST units, and only your
strongest. Bring SEVERAL healers. You will need them; I am dead serious.

When the chapter starts, have everybody group up, and then have a couple of
your strongest/defensive units build a small wall to block off your group.
Then just sit there. Cyas and the Boss will slowly start making several
attacks on your group with Staves, so use Rest Staves to heal whatever bad
conditions have been inflicted on your units.

After a while, more reinforcements will start popping out. Do NOT take them
lightly. Despite horrible stats, these guys will tear your units to shreds
because of the lone fact that they have a 40+ to Hit and Dodge, making them
stronger then they seem. Be careful; use your stronger units to block the paths
from them, and take them out carefully.

Wait... around...70 turns. Cyas will soon leave, and then you can just charge
like a raving lunatic right at the enemy. Keep your toes covered, and slowly
snipe out any Long Arches/Ranged Magic fighters, or just wear them out with
fast units.

Once you get rid of all the Arches, before crossing the bridge, try to buy some
stuff in
the towns. If you need money, send Delmud into the arena for easy cash... but
be
wary, 'cause it must have taken all day for Cyas to leave the area. After
you're
prepared, line your units up before the first bridge, and then on the next
turn, charge EVERYBODY past the bridge.
On the next turn, the bridge will fall, and you now should just keep a strong
defense, wear out all the Long Archs, and then finally encounter Reinhardet's
army.

If you have Oruen with you, have her speak with Reinhardet to get a pretty damn
good sword, and then take careful measures to take out Reinhardet. He is TOUGH,
because of his insane skills and the Daim Thunder spell. By the way, don't
have Oruen stand next to him, 'cause he gets a support effect from her.. and he
won't attack Oruen either.

The boss royally sucks. Send a fast unit up there to just take him out, and
then conquer the castle.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XVVVII. - CHAPTER 23 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: Not all that hard of a chapter. There're quite a few
Dark Mages running around as reinforcements after a couple of turns, but that's
all you really need to worry about. The boss, Lance, isn't really all that hard
to beat (the Paladin boss), but you should watch out for the Roputo Mage
guarding the castle, as he has the Poison Spell, which can hit from a long
distance and has good range.

Other then that, go for it! Cyas will automatically join on this chapter, and
when you have Leaf approach the castle, Sety will automatically kill the boss
and join as a neutral unit!

with you, because most enemies are aiming to use poison + offense tactics in
this stage.

Don't bother with the houses; most of them are just information... nothing too
much to worry about. Simply stay in a group and move downwards. Have Cyas run
away as fast as he possibly can; due to his high movement stars, he might have
a good chance of moving twice on a turn. His leadership bonus apparently
affects his progress too... but it doesn't affect your troops in this stage,
just
keep note of that.

If you have any Silence Staves, this is the time to use them. Use the Silence
Staff on the Mages that are equipped with status affecting spells.. just be
wary that the Silence Staff doesn't affect the boss. Damn.

If you want the advantages of a leadership bonus (and don't like Sety for some
strange reason), go and finish this chapter in one turn with the Warp Staff,
because that is the only way to keep Cyas on your team. Don't say I didn't warn
ya, though, 'cause Sety is an AWESOME, WOW, OHMIGOSH kind of fighter.

Keep going. Try to be wary of the Dark Mage reinforcements and take them out
as soon as possible. The boss will find a Poison Fenrir type spell in several
turns, so be VERY careful, and bring any poison medicine bags that you might
have.

Soon enough, Cyas should eventually reunite with your group, and you should
notice a large pack of Dragon Knight reinforcements just sitting on the
mountain and doing nothing. They WILL attack, but not until you get near the
castle. Have Cyas speak to Leaf and get the Blaggi No Ken. After that, build a
wall with your most powerful characters and wait for Lance's group of Knights
to
come to your party. They aren't too powerful, but Lance might make a ranged
attack with his Flame Sword, so be wary.

After you take care of Lance's army, have a good fraction of your group stand
right near the Dragon Knights on the mountain. Heal the units that are by that
area, and then have Leaf's other group slowly move up to the castle. Soon
enough, you should capture those two Dark Mages, take their Sleep Staves, and
then get rid of them... you can only do this if you silenced them, however.

When Leaf is near the castle, Sety will attack the boss from inside and kill
him in a single blow. Sety will now guard the castle as a neutral unit, and the
Dragon Knights will quickly charge at your group. Pick off whatever Dragon
Knights while having Leaf rush to Sety, and then have Leaf speak to Sety. Sety
will join, and you will be able to finish the chapter.

NOTE: There is NO way to attack Althena, or even recruit her, so don't email me
about it.

** XVVVII. - CHAPTER 24 - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: A really, really, easy chapter... this is really pathetic.
Just have your units go straight to Leidrick, bring Malitia along with you for
the long haul, and keep your cool throughout the whole level.

Malitia can speak to Galzus to make him join. Also, for the group all the way
to the left, they should try to kill the Dark Mages and get the children to
escape. This is VERY important, as you should try to get the Stone Staff. One
of the kids will be able to open the door to the north, and you can get the
Stone Staff in that chest. Only Sara can use it.

To go to Chapter 24: Gaiden, simply get the Stone Staff.


Characters -

Cyas. Joins automatically if you completed previous chapter in one turn. High
Priest.
Sety(!). Joins automatically if he joined in previous chapter. Sage.
Galzus(!). Joins when Mareeta speaks to him. Mercenary.

Villages -

None, no more after this point.

Shops -

Note: To access this shop, you should have the Member Card from Chapter 18 with
a character. Unlock the door to the north that is surrounded by black mist, and
have a character step on the spot with the Member Card where the door
previously was.

Speed Ring 8000G
HP Ring 8000G
Skill Ring 8000G
Power Ring 8000G
Defense Ring 8000G

Conversations -

Maritia -> Galzus. Galzus will join the party.

Boss:

Leidrick: Baron
Equipment: Roputo No Ken(E)
Parameter: STR: 16, MGC: 28, SKL: 12, SPD: 9, LUK: 6, DEF: 16, BLD: 20
Difficulty: Hard

Galzus: Mercinary
Equipment: Master Sword(E), Flame Sword, Master Axe, Medicine, Medicine
Parameter:
Difficulty: Hard (Suggested that you do not kill if Mareeta is on your squad)



This chapter is rather easy. You don't need to have too much help on it. First
off, gather all your characters, bring a good bunch, and then see who gets
placed where. Then reload your file and give some characters some appropriate
items.

Characters on the left side, inside a cell: have them carry at least 2-3 keys,
and one Treasure Chest key.

Characters on the right side: one key, some decent weapons.

Characters on the main side: powerful weapons, key if it's needed.

If Mareeta is not with the main group, you will need a person with the Warp
Staff or have a Rescue Staff at hand. Both Sety and Cyas can use any Rod they
want, so give them some powerful magic rods and then continue on.


Now, hopefully you have Mareeta with the main group (The group that will be
able
to attack Leidrick head on). First off, you shouldn't try to make things too
hasty. Have a unit with a Silence Staff use it on one of the Dark Mages in the
cell to the right... use it on the one with a Rest Staff. Now, following up,
have your other Priests/Sages use their Silence/Sleep staves on the Dark Mages
in the cell... only attack the Dark Mages that have a good staff. It's
suggested
you attack the ones with Sleep, Silence, and Berserk Staves. Don't worry about
wasting the uses of these staves; you should be able to get a new round.

After that, have the group in the left cell unlock the door. Gather the units
outside the following door, and don't open the door just yet.

For the right side, have everybody slowly proceed down, and carefully lure out

the Dark Mages. This is important--you don't want your units to get poisoned by
any of their Yotsmung spells.

After a turn has passed, hopefully you have attacked some of the Dark Mages in
the large right cell and kept them from being able to do anything to harm your
troops. You might suffer a couple things here and there, but if you have a Rest
Staff, it shouldn't be the biggest problem.

Now, it should once again be your phase. Have Cyas/Sety unlock the door for the
main group and carefully move everybody into a defensive position. This is
important, since Galzus' group will have several powerful Mercenaries, and
you don't want to lose any troops in this map.

For the left group, unlock the following door and carefully kill any Dark
Mages that have captured any children. Try to block any other neutral units
that are still around, and do your best to make sure that ALL of the neutral
units are not captured. Keep defensive, and just slowly kill all the Dark Mages
so that the neutral units can escape. This is important!

For the right group, just kill as many Dark Mages as you can. Carefully attack
the Mercenary that is guarding the door. Use a powerful and fast unit
against the Mercenary, because he has a Sword that can inflict nasty status
effects. After that, have one of your characters unlock the door! Don't worry
about the Dark Mages inside the cells; they can hardly do anything. For the
following turns, have the units inside the right area capture all the Dark
Mages and take their items... this is important, since they have very useful
staves.

That should be all for this turn. On the following phase for the enemy,
Galzus' group will immediately start moving down. Remember... they are
DANGEROUS! Don't underestimate them, or you could have quite a few dead units
on your hands.

Once again, it's your phase. Let's keep moving on this kind of direction from
now on..

For the main group, if you have Sety, have him be at the front--but not within
Galzus' range. Have Mareeta move rather close, because once she talks to
Galzus, she will be able to recruit him. For the rest of your group, just
carefully move them up, and keep them out of the range of the Mercenaries.

For the left group, continue guarding the children, kill all the Dark Mages,
and have the neutral units escape. Have all your units continue unlocking the
doors to the north once the Dark Mages have been killed, and make sure that
NONE of the neutral units die in battle. Once you have successfully managed to
have all of the neutral units escape, one of them will open up the door to the
Stone Staff. Have two units inside the room with the Stone Staff block the
reinforcement areas (staircases) and unlock the chest... what do you get? The
Stone Staff! Only Sara can use this item, but you will need it in the few
following chapters, so it's important that you get it.

For the right group, there's nothing special here. Just block the reinforcement
areas and continue capturing all the Dark Mages in the cell and taking their
items. There's nothing that you really have to do here. After you're done, just
leave the group alone, since they have nothing else to do.


Now, with that information... this is how the following turns should be played
out. Have your main group slowly move up and attack Galzus' group. Once he is
close enough, have Mareeta recruit Galzus by moving her up to him and having
them initate a conversation.  After that, kill all the members of Galzus'
group and continue moving your groups together.

Fighting Leidrick is no problem in the least. Simply have Leif, Felgus, Nanna
or Delmud equipped with the Blagi No Ken. Attack Leidrick and he should go down
in a couple rounds. After you have retrieved the Stone Staff, it's suggested
you capture the two Bishops that are by Leidrick's throne and take their Rest
Staves. After you're done doing everything, move Leif to the throne and conquer
it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XVVVIII. - CHAPTER 24: Gaiden - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter information: Quite a hard chapter. Many mages will be berserking and
doing other status effects to your units, so you should bring along several
Rest Staves and some Holy Water to keep these guys from harming you too much.

Eyval is in this chapter. You should have the Stone Staff, so you can heal her
status, but I wouldn't really suggest using her too much.

Characters -
Eyval. Joins if spoken to by Leaf or Mareeta, must be recovered. Sword Master.

Conversations -

Leaf -> Eyval. Eyval joins the party.
Mareeta -> Eyval. Eyval joins the party.

Boss:

?: Dark Mage
Equipment: Berserk Staff, Yotsmung

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** XVVVIIII. - Final Chapter - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter information: This is it, the final chapter in the game. Most of your
units should be really powerful by now, and you shouldn't have too many weak
units anymore. This chapter isn't too hard compared to the previous ones that
you have faced, but it isn't too much of a pushover, either. You should play
through it
for one time, and then restart when things get hard. Block all the
reinforcement areas, keep your cool, and take out the areas one by one.

Note: You must have 8 units standing in the middle of each Warp Stone in each
pillar. That's how you can open up the throne in the middle of the room.

Characters -

None

Conversations -

None -

Boss:

Beldo: Dark Sage
Equipment: Stone, Yotsmung, Medicine
Parameter: LV: 20
HP: 80/80, STR: 5, MGC: 20, SKL: 19, SPD: 20, LUK: 12, DEF: 15, BLD: 11
Difficulty: Hard, donít be frightened by his high speed, since the Yotsmung and
Fenrir spells bring it all the way down. Just send your fast and most skilled
hitters up against him, heís not a hard foe.


This chapter should have heavy caution in it. For the first time going through,
you will probably have quite a few troubles getting through things. It's
suggested that you bring every single one of your most powerful units and have
them be equipped with several Door Keys. Bring your Thieves, too.

In this chapter, you will have around 2-3 of your characters be right by a
pillar, which has a locked door blocking it. Basically, you should just unlock
the doors to each of the pillars and kill the units standing inside of them.
Then place a character on the warp-stone inside the pillar and leave them
there. After you have accomplished this for every pillar, have ALL of the
characters stand inside the pillar. Have Leif and some other powerful fighters
stand outside the large-castle in the center of the map, and Beldo will appear.

Simply have your most powerful units attack Beldo--this should be Galzus, Sety,
and other characters. He should go down rather easily, depending on how
powerful your characters are. Have Leif conquer the throne.

** 4. CLASS GUIDE - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary -

Okay, I decided to make a Character Guide for Fire Emblem 5, since there aren't
many around, and the game needs a couple more guides and such.
When a mounted unit dismounts from a horse, the unit will be forced to use
swords. When you are entering interior areas, units must dismount and fight
off-horse.

***********************************************************************


------
Lord -

Only the main character uses this class, and the base stats for this class are
generally quite low. The other problem is that the character using this class
also gets some pretty low base stats, making a bad combination...yet this class
must be used in every battle, so just protect him to the point of disaster.

Arch Knights excel at using bows. Most of their stats are well spread around

Pegasus Riders are agile fighters, possessing extremely high Speed, Skill, and
Luck that makes them quite a pain to hit. Strength will stay rather low, and
Defense

** 5 - 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.


Leveling up Tips -

Scrolls - These scrolls are thrown throughout the chapters in Fire Emblem 5.
These mystical scrolls can boost your stat gains when they are equipped. They
can be very useful when you give a person a several scrolls and power level in
the Arena.

Power Leveling (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, winning battles and gaining experience.
However, if it looks like your character is going to die in the heat of battle,
you better jam the B button or you'll have a dead unit!


                    Fire Emblem: Tharcia 776 Character Guide



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


*************
[Lord-Prince]
*************


Leaf:
Leaf is the prince of Lenstar, the son of Cuan and Ethlin, and Althena's
younger brother.
Both of his parents were killed on the Yied desert by the horrid ambush of
Torrabant.
Leaf inherits the blood of Noba as well of the holy warrior Baldo.
Leaf is struggling to regain his land from the Tharcian forces, which have
dominated almost all the land in the Tharcian continent.

Leif is the main character for the game, and while he's not too much of a
fighter at first, he can still hold his own pretty well. Leif has his own
personal
weapon, the Hikari No Tsurugi, which when used at a distance can cast a
Lightning Spell, and can be an average-strength weapon up close. It also has
the ability to heal his HP to max.  Once Leif has been promoted, he has the
potentinal to get high stats if you manage to bring him to Lv. 20 afterwards.
It's suggested to not have him fight too frequently, but try to bring up a few
levels and give him stat-boosting items when you need to.

All in all, Leaf still isn't much of a fighter, but you're forced to use him on
every map.

How you get him - Starts out as the leader on the first map.
Starting Skills - Continue
Support Effect - Finn, Nanna


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


Carrion:
Carrion is a Lenster Knight that has pledged to serve Leaf and support him.
Carrion has a strong sense of responsibiltiy and is quite gentle.

Carrion is one of the very few Social Knights that can be recruited in the

game. Starting out quite weak, with only below average stats at the area that
he joins in, most people would shrug him off and not bother using him. However,
Carrion has rather powerful growth rates and can be a formidable fighter once
brought up in levels for a little while. After promotion, Carrion can pretty
much be the most powerful character in the game, with extremely high growth and
powerful stats. Carrion can use swords and spears while being mounted, which
adds to his usefulness, since he can often have a nice variety of weapons and
an advantage against other units.

Looks - Carrion has brown hair, and is wearing blue clothing.
How you get him - Joins automatically in Chapter 8.
Starting Skills - None.
Support Effect -


Fred:
Fred is a Paladin that is Oreun's aide. He is an honest knight who owes
absolute loyalty to only Oreun.

Fred is the first Paladin you get, and he's not exactly what you call a
powerhouse. Fred gets pretty decent gains, but he starts out promoted, and with
such horrible base stats too. Fred can be a decent fighter when his levels are
maxed out, but he just can't stand up to your stronger units, so it isn't too
wise to use this poor Paladin.

Class Change - Already promoted.

How you get him - Have Leaf speak to him in Chapter 11, and then have Fred
survive. He will join in Chapter 11: Gaiden.
Starting Skills - None.
Support Effect - Olwen


Conomore:
Conomore is a knight of Alster. He is warmhearted and kind, but takes matters
seriously.

Conomore is another one of those late Paladins. Conomore starts out with quite
good stats, with his skill being quite high.
Conomore gets pretty decent gains, but he has some problems maxing some of his
more important stats, and in the end Conomore will just be decent compared to
your stronger units.

Class Change - Already promoted.

How you get him - Have Miranda speak to him in Chapter 19.
Starting Skills - Continue
Support Effect - Miranda


*******************
[Trobadour-Paladin]
*******************


Nanna:
The Nodian princess, Nanna, is the supposed daughter of Finn. She also has a
crush
on Leaf.

Nanna is the Troubadour that you will have to stick with for quite a long time.
She joins with rather low base stats... and has a few problems with her growth
rates. Nanna won't grow to be anything powerful, and can't really be used as a
powerful fighter until after promotion. Her Earth Sword gives her a heavy
advantage against other units... since attacking an enemy and successfully
hitting it will give her an amount of HP returned to her. Otherwise, without
the Earth Sword she won't be able to match up too well. Arm her with a light
and efficient sword, and keep her as a support unit for the most part until
promotion.

Class Change - Paladin

Looks - Nanna has blond hair with a feather in it.
How you get her - Joins automatically in Chapter 5.
Starting Skills - Charisma
Support Effect - Leaf, Finn


Amalda:
Amalda is a knight under Friege's command.

Amalda is the other female Paladin that can be recruited in the game, and she
manages to end up beating Nanna in quite a few areas. Amalda has far superior
growth and average starting stats for a promoted unit... she will probably
excel and beat Nanna in quite a few areas, and manages to have high sword and
rod growth. I suggest using her if you don't like Nanna and you would like to
have a efficient physical fighting unit that can also heal.

Class Change - Already promoted
Rating for Amalda - 8/10

Looks - Amalda has grey hair.
How you get her - Have Sleuf speak to her in Chapter 20.
Starting Skills - Continue
Support Effect - Sleuf


****************************
[Free Knight-Forrest Knight]
****************************


Felgus:
Felgus is an unknown Knight that was captured by Manster and held captive. He
fell
in love with Karen while he was held hostage. Felgus is usually cheerful, but
he has a quick temper. He seems to have connections with Beowulf and the
Hezul royal house.

Felgus is one of the strongest units in the entire game. He starts out with
pretty neat starting stats... and will be a rather efficient fighter most of
the
time. Felgus' growth is also quite average, which means he will continue
getting stronger and manages to have a good balance of stats after promotion...
he will probably end up maxing several stats, and is one of the most
efficient sword-using units in the game. Later in the game, Felgus will be
able to equip the Beo No Ken... which makes him only so much more useful.

Class Change - Forrest Knight.

Looks - Felgus has blond hair.
How you get him - Joins automatically in Chapter 4.
Starting Skills -
Suppport Effect - Karen


Delmud:
Delmud is the son of Lachesis, and is brother to Nanna.

Delmud starts out promoted in a rather late chapter, along with only average
stats and a low level. However, if you put work into Delmud and bring his
levels up, you will be quite surprised with the results... unless you use
scrolls, Delmud probably wouldn't be able to match up with Felgus, but he can
also equip the Beo No Ken and has a rather useful skill.

Delmud also seems to have a very high fighting skill in the arena when not
mounted, which means that he can get to Lv. 20 far easier then any other units.

Class Change - Already promoted.

Chapter 21.
Starting Skills - Charisma
Support Effect - Nanna



**********************
[Axe Armors-General]
**********************


Dalshein:
Dalshein is a powerful Axe Armor forced to work for Leidrick. When his little
brother was kidnapped, Dalshein had no choice but to obey Leidrick's commands.

Dalshein is a powerful unit, starting out with good base stats and rather
average growth... he can kick around most units in the starting chapters, with
his far superior defense and build. He will continue getting more powerful, but
unless you use scrolls on him... he will suffer badly in quite a few areas.
It's
suggested that you work around him, growing his weapon skill after promotion,
because that will make him VERY efficient in interior areas, where most units
can't even use Spears or Axes. Keep Dalshein leveled and on par with your
units,
and you will be surprised with the results.


Class Change - General
Rating for Dalshein - 8/10

60% -   50%   - 5% -  40% - 25% - 25% -  20%  -25%- 1%
Looks - Dalshein has brown hair, and is wearing blue/green armor.
How you get him - Save the children in Chapter 3, and then have Leaf speak to
him in Chapter 4.
Starting Skills - Wrath
Support Effect -


Xavier -
Xavier is forced to work for the Freege army against his own will.
His true loyalty lies as a Lenster General.

Xavier is the other General, but he has quite a few problems. Xavier is a
rather hard character to get, which is why most people refuse to even bother
trying to recruit him, but he can still manage to be a good character. Xavier
has average base stats, with most things being averaged out, aside from a few
stats... but, if you decide to put work into him and level him up... you will
be
happy with the results, as Xavier has nice, balanced growth rates. However, he
still has problems comparing to Dalshein. The advantages that Xavier has
are the fact that he has far higher magic defense, better growth, and several
skills. Depending on which one you want to use, you'll just have to see which
one ends up better.

Class Change - General
Rating for Xavier: 7/10
Stat Growth:

50% -   40%   - 45% -  55% - 50%- 70% -  15%  -10%- 1%
Looks - Brown hair all around, bearded.
How you get him - Do not attack any Lenstar allied people, and then release all
the neutral civilians in the cell. Have each of them talk to the Armors in the
throne room, and then after doing all that, have Leaf talk to Xavier.
Starting Skills - Rapid Hit, Duel, Big Shield.
Support Effect -



******************************
[Pegasus Rider-Pegasus Knight]
******************************


Karin:
Karin is a Silesian Pegasus Rider in search of Sety, as ordered by the Queen of
Silesia.

Karin starts out with average stats, with her speed and luck being quite high
for that point in the game. She also has average growth, but suffers from a
couple problems. Unless you decide to give scrolls to her, she will have
pathetically low strength, defense, and BLD.. which will hurt her usefulness,
since she is a Pegasus Knight. Her HP isn't too hot, either, and her skill has
a couple problems... but she's the best Pegasus Knight that you can find, so if
you want to use one, this is your woman.

Class Change - Dragon Knight

Looks - Karin has green hair.
How you get her - Karin joins automatically in Chapter 4
Starting Skills - None
Support Effect - Felgus, Misha


Misha -
Misha is the daughter of Detvar, and joined the Manster army in order to get
food for the starving country of Silesia.

Misha's a pretty decent character, although it's rather hard to make her match
up with Karin. She has very excellent gains, and can be a very helpful
character when revved up. Misha is overshadowed by Karin and Eda, who have
much more potential then Misha does to become a very powerful character. If you
have already blown off Karin and Eda and decided not to use both, then you can
go with Misha, who'll gain levels quicker then normal and comes smack with a
Wind Sword.

Class Change - Already promoted.
Rating for Misha - 7/10
Stat Growth:

65% -   55%   - 15% - 65% - 80% - 40% -  20%  - 5%- 1%
Looks - Misha has green hair, hair's a bit messy.
How you get her - In Chapter 17, have Karin speak to Misha, then put Misha to
sleep, and then capture her, in the next chapter she will join automatically.
Starting Skills - None
Support Effect - Karin


****************************
[Dragon Rider-Dragon Knight]
****************************


Dean:
Dean is the older brother of Eda, and a Tharcian Dragon Knight under Arion's
command.

Dean's mostly an average character. Dean starts out with average stats,
everything being balanced out in a good direction... and his growth ain't too
bad, but he has a few problems comparing to some other Dragon/Pegasus Knights
that can level far more then he can. It's suggested that you should only use
him if you decide to get the Dragon Lance, which, being his personal weapon,
makes him a very powerful fighter.

Class Change - Already promoted
Rating for Dean - 7/10
Stat Growth:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
75% -   55%   - 5% -  50% - 30% - 40% -  30%  - 30%- 1%
Looks - Dean has grey hair.
How you get him - Joins automatically in Chapter 14.
Starting Skills - None
Support Effect - Eda


Eda:
Eda is the younger sister of Dean.

Eda can become quite a powerful character, depending on how you use her. At
first, she appears not able to do too much... since she has low base stats at
the point she joins in--but her growth is alright, being balanced out. If you
put enough work into her, she'll be an average character until promotion,
whereas she will end up maxing most of her stats and being an awesome character
when mounted. Not only that, but her weapon skill seems to grow quite well,
meaning she can use most of the big-boys swords in no time.

Class Change - Dragon Knight
Rating for Eda - 8/10

Starting Skills - ?

****************************************
[Archer/Arch Knight - Sniper/Bow Knight]
****************************************


Tanya:
Tanya is the daughter of Dagudar and has a relationship with Othin.

Tanya is the first archer in the entire game, and as usual... most people end
up using her when you need an archer. She's actually a pretty good character,
being quite speedy but weak when she first joins. After putting some work into
her, she will most likely max her luck and speed without a problem, and
everything else will be average. She's the best foot archer in the entire game,
but compared to Robert, she's not really worth it, so unless you plan on using
both Tanya and Robert, I suggest only using her for the first few areas.

Class Change - Sniper
Rating for Tanya - 7/10
Stat Growth -

Looks - Tanya has brown hair, wearing green.
How you get her - Joins on the third turn in Chapter 1. Later on, she reappears
in Chapter 8: Gaiden.
Starting Skills - None
Support Effect - Othin


Ronan -
Ronan is a bowfighter in the village of Iss.

Ronan is rather lopsided. He starts out with rather low stats and can't really
compare to your units... after a couple levels, he'll still have problems
trying to catch up. Ronan does have a few powerful points. He manages to have
high magic and speed, along with skill being average.. but all his other stats
are pathetic. To be quite honest, unless you like having an archer that has a
good chance of being able to move again, Ronan just isn't worth it. He'll
always be slowed down by the best bows, and can hardly do any damage to begin
with.

Class Change - Sniper

Looks - Ronan has blue hair.
How you get him - Enter his village in Chapter 2.
Starting Skills - Continue
Support Effect -


Selfina -
Selfina is the Co-Leader of Lenstar, also the wife of Glade.
Selfina is also the daughter of Dorias.

Selfina starts out a little strong, but her gains are by far inferior compared
to her partner Robert, so she will soon be passed up by him. While Selfina
isn't actually all that bad, she just isn't worth it for some missions. She is
frail, and her stats rarely increase.

Unless you need another Arch Knight, I would seriously suggest against Selfina.
Her only true purpose is for a couple of items she can retrieve and giving a
leadership bonus to her troops.

How you get him - Joins automatically in Chapter 9.
Support Effect - Glade, Kein, Avel, Robert
Starting Skills - Duel


Robert -
Robert is a Arch Knight under Selfina's command.

Robert is the best Archer in the entire game, seriously. Robert starts out with
rather low stats, and will need some work put into him if you really want to
use him... but after raising him a couple levels, you will see amazing results!
Robert's stats increase quite often and are very balanced, the only exception
being magic. After promotion, Robert will show that he's the best of the best.
In fact, his only bad point is slow weapon skill growth... he moves quite fast
when mounted, and is more efficient then the other archers.

[Axe Knight-Great Knight]

Brighton:
Brighton is the second in command of the Magi Squad.

Brighton is the first Axe Knight that joins your team. His starting stats
aren't too bad, while not being anything amazing, either... his growth is
merely average, and there's nothing really special about him. I really suggest
using Hicks over this guy, unless you want the Wrath skill... but it's just not
really useful for Brighton in the first place.

Hicks -
Hicks' is a Manstor revolutinary. He's waiting for his chance to rebel against
Leidrick, but he just can't find the perfect chance..

Hicks' is the other Axe Knight that joins your team. Hicks' does have rather
average starting stats, nothing too amazing. But Hicks grows quite well... he
will end up with very high HP, luck, skill, defense, and BLD. Which is great
for an Axe Knight. After promotion, Hicks will probably have pretty good stats,
and ends up to probably be the best Axe Knight in the game. I suggest using him
if you want to use one--but if you don't want one, then don't go with Hicks,
since Axe Knights aren't really all that great to begin with.

[Axe Fighter|Sword Fighter - Mercenary]

Othin:
Othin is a member of the Fiana Braves, and is often known for his great axe
skills. He is the "moodmaker" of the Fiana Braves.

Othin is a bloody powerhouse, getting extremely high all around stats and being
quite a powerful fighter. Othin has his custom Pugi axe, which makes him almost
invincible when going up against an entire group of enemies. When he promotes,
he has the ability to use Swords for extreme destruction.

Halvan:
Halvan is the other Fiana brave member. He is Eyvel's righthand man and a close
friend (and rival) of Othin.

Halvan is the other Axe Fighter. While not as powerful or speedy as Othin,
Halvan will excel in high build and defense, along with a greater skill score.
His Hero Axe can be a powerful weapon when it is wielded in his hands, and he
is a great partner for Othin.

Machyua -
Machyua is a member of the Magi Squad (A Manster Resistance Force). She is
bright and intelligent with a strong spirit, although she is a bit bossy.

Machyua is a great unit. She gets amazing speed, and her strength and body
scores get amazingly high, allowing her to use the better swords without being
affected by the weight. She will become a great fighter after promotion, with
the ability to use axes.

Ralf is.. a mercenary from an unknown village.

Ralf isn't actually too bad. He comes with really good skill with Swords for a

really suggest this guy too much.

Galzus -
Galzus is a slave for Leidrick, and a Mercenary with Odo Blood that is seeking,
to find Maritia.

Galzus is amazing, seriously. Galzus will start out with several maxed stats,
and being incredibly high in the stats that aren't maxed... although he can't
gain any levels, he doesn't need it at all. Galzus can kill most enemies
without a problem. His incredible strength, combined with the fact that he has
the Moonlight and Shooting Star Hit skills, makes him nearly invincible... he
has weak-leadership and high movement stars, which allows him to move twice
often. There's no reason not to use him; he's one of the most powerful
characters in the game, period!

Eyval:
Eyval is the leader of the Fiana Braves. She is a descendant of Ulir,
although she took role of a swordswoman rather than using a bow. She and her
group are aiding Leaf in his quest.

Eyval could be another Jeigan for this game, but she still actually manages to
be somewhat good. Eyval starts out with a nearly maxed skill stat, and her
speed stat is already maxed. All of her other stats are pretty much average,
and she can only have a few levels... her skill usually manages to max out, and
her luck gets high enough to have her dodging several hits. You don't have her
for long, though, so try not to put too much work into her. She can still hold
her own pretty well by the end of the game.

Shiva:
Shiva is the best friend of Rivis, and helped him form his own gang. He is also
madly in love with Saphy.

Shiva is a Navaare clone from Monshou No Nazo. Shiva starts out with good stats
and has good growth... he grows into a powerful character, and always manages
to stay at top for a long time. After promotion, he will be able to tear every
single enemy in two, and has no problem maxing any of his stats at all. I
highly suggest using this character, since he is the most dangerous with a
Killer Sword. Shiva has incredible lasting in enemy-group situations, since he
has the Sun Hit skill... which gives him HP-restored equal to the damage dealt
to the enemy!

Mareeta:
Mareeta is the adopted daughter of Eyval. She bears a strange birthmark and has
Odo blood running in her veins.

Mareeta is one of the powerhouse characters of the game. She starts out with
average stats, but has amazing growth. After giving her a few levels, you will
see that she can become very powerful after a few levels, and after promotion
she can take any enemy on without a problem. Mareeta will be able to get the
Shooting Star Hit and Moonlight Hit skills, which makes her nearly invincible.
Throw a couple other skills onto her, and she will be awesome.  Not only that,
but Mareeta has her own personal sword which gives her an Awareness skill when
equipped, allows her to attack twice in a row, AND is incredibly light. How
cheap is that? Always use Mareeta, because if you don't, you're insane.

Trewd:
Trewd is a member of the Dandylion gang.

Trewd is actually a pretty good character. He starts out with rather average
stats and has good growth rates. Trewd will end up with amazing hit points,
skill, luck, and defense... and he will stay powerful, even before promotion. I
suggest using him if you don't have any good Sword Fighters. His Awareness
skill lowers the chance of enemies ever being able to have an advantage or

Shanam:
Shanam is a guy who runs around impersonating Shannan.

Shanam is... really lopsided. He starts out with rather bad stats, and his
growth is only average. He really isn't the most useful character. If you do
level him up, you will have a mostly average character at best. If you give him
scrolls to fix his weak spots... then maybe he can become something useful. I
don't suggest putting too much work into him. Only use him for his Bargain

good character when it comes to capturing enemies, since he beats most other

can still pretty much hold his own against almost any enemy, and can be quite a
dangerous fighter with a Yuusha Sword or such. Rivis also has another perk
which makes him an awesome unit: depending on how high his BLD goes, he will be
able to take ANYTHING from an enemy.

wouldn't suggest putting too much work into her. She is allowed to have THREE
class changes, which gives her high potential, but she will not become a good

takes a lot of time. I suggest using Parn or Rivis over her.

Pahn is actually a rather useful character. Although he starts out as a

won't be able to steal items as often, but he can still be useful in that area.
His good skills and fighting ability make him a pretty good backup fighter,
too. If you need a Thief that can hold his own better then the others, then I
suggest using Parn... not to mention that this guy moves twice quite often.

Cyas appears to be a pretty weak character at the time you get him, and in

useful guy on the block. Thanks to Leadership and high movement, though, he CAN
be a VERY useful healer. Not too bad, but I still prefer Sety a bit.
If you can get him several level ups, he can prove to be a useful character.

him, and his growth rates are neatly balanced out. Not to mention, Asvel has
the powerful Grafucalibur spell... which means he can tear up many enemies

Homer is the only Bard in the entire game. When he starts out, he has rather
average stats and seems to excel in Light Magic. However, he gains levels
extremely fast, which helps him become powerful in a low amount of time, and
it's suggested that you have him use Wind Magic. His stats grow without a
problem, and he will actually have decent defense and HP for a Mage, not to
mention extremely high skill, speed, and luck. Only problem is that his magic
might be slightly lower then other mages, but after promotion, this is no

will suffer from quite a few problems. Her HP, defense and BLD will be pathetic
for the most part... and she is so pathetically frail she can die in quite a

Salem is the only Dark Mage you get in the entire game, and one of the very few
Mages in Fire Emblem history that can actually use Dark Magic. However, Salem

growth rates are nothing amazing, either. There's no real point in using him,
unless you want something evil running around on the map.

Sety -
Sety is the son of Prince Levin and Fury. He wields the holy blood of the holy
warrior, Sety, in his veins, and that gives him the ability to use the spell of
Holsety.

Sety is a powerhouse. Although his magic power will need to go up a little bit
as soon as you get him, he still isn't actually too bad. His speed and skill
are amazingly high due to the fact he has the Holsety spell, and he can take
out an entire group of enemies equipped with that spell alone. When given the
chance, immediately max out Sety's level, or you will be having some problems
in the Gaiden chapter, if you decide to go to it. It's VERY important, because

bad stats. However, she can grow into a powerful unit... her growth rates are
all above average, save HP, defense, and BLD, and she has awesome weapon
variety, which gives her an advantage against other units. It's suggested that
you try to have her excel in Wind and Thunder magic--her Daim Thunder spell
allows her to attack twice in a row, which is very useful. Olwen can also use
the Energy Sword, which gives her a nice boost to magic and a resistance
against most enemy mage attacks.

It's suggested that you use her if you would like a Mage Knight, although

of the two in your party.  Eyrios starts at a higher level, with average
stats... Olwen has a chance to have more potential, but Eyrios can actually
excel in a couple more stats, such as defense, BLD, and strength. He also has
the ever useful Sun Hit and Prayer skills. However, Eyrios won't be able to get
the Energy Sword (Which is very useful), and might have a few lower stats then
Olwen when at a maxed level.

Miranda -
Miranda is the Princess of Alster.

Miranda starts out unpromoted, with rather bad stats at the point she joins in.
However, if you decide to level her up, you will be very satisfied with the
results... Miranda excels in Fire Magic, but I strongly suggest that you have
her grow in Wind Magic. However, Miranda does have a very bad weak point.. her
BLD and strength will rarely grow, which means she will not be a good physical
fighter in the least, making her just as useful as any other Mage. If you
already have several other Mages in your party, I wouldn't suggest using her,
as she has somewhat less potential than a large number of Mages in the game.

I suggest using Eyrios or Olwen over her, since they are far more balanced. But
Miranda does have stronger points over both of them.. so you should decide
carefully.

Glade is the husband of Selfina. He is also a close friend of Finn.

Glade starts out as a promoted Duke Knight, with average stats for his level
and class. However, he has a rather hard time trying to grow into a more
powerful unit... his growth rates are only somewhat average, and not being able
to promote again hurts his chances badly. At most, he'll only be average. I
don't really suggest using him.

Class Change - Already promoted.
Rating for Glade - 5/10
Stat Growth:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
60% -   45%   - 5% -  35% -  35% -35% -  30%  - 15%- 1%
Looks - Glade has white hair.
How you get him - Joins automatically in Chapter 13.
Support Effect - Selfina, Leaf, Finn

Lance Soldier -
One of the Knights that join automatically with Glade.

Don't bother wasting your time with these. They do not stay in the squad
forever--only for one chapter--and cannot promote. Not to mention, they have
the worst growth rates in the game... just give their equipment to Glade and
watch them go down in honor.

Class Change - None

** 6. - SKILLS GUIDE - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Fire Emblem: Tharcia 776 has a special set of Skills for certain units. These
skills can allow your units to do special things on the map or inside battles.
  Skills can be very useful, due to the fact that your fighter can perform much
better in a battle if they have good skills. There are also books that allow
you to learn certain skills, which can be given to your better fighters so they
can fight better.
Most people reading this guide might be confused on what skills are, so I will
make a small manual telling the effects of each skill in this game.


Also, some final notes -

Skills such as Shooting Star Hit, Sun Hit and Moonlight Hit cannot be used at
the same exact time in a fight. You can have all these skills on one person,
but they will not activate at the same time in a fight.

Malitia can learn Shooting Star Hit through a conversation with Shanam in
Chapter 15. You must wait for Shanam to come out of the reinforcement area and
then have Malitia speak to him.

You cannot obtain the Life skill.
Only Xavier will obtain the Big Shield skill.

These following skills have manuals so you can learn them. Every other skill
cannot be learned by using a manual.

Continue
Wrath
Duel
Sun Hit
Awareness
Moonlight Hit
Elite

------
Now, I will explain how each skill works.

Skill List -


 Continue:
Allows the unit to perform a second attack after an attack. Effect is
random, so it doesn't always happen.


 Prayer:
When the unit is low on HP, their dodge rate will increase. Always in effect,
but the unit must be at low HP to activate the skill. Doesn't work as well as
it does in FE4.



 Charisma:
Charisma gives a 10% boost to hit and dodge rates within a 3 tile square
radius.
Always in effect.


 Pinch Strike:
Always allows a unit to go first in a battle, even if they are attacked by the
enemy.
Always in effect.


 Awareness:
Decreases an enemy's CLT by 7 points, and doesn't do too much else aside from
that.
Always in effect.


 Life:
Restores a small amount of HP at the start of a turn.
Always in effect.


 Duel:
When the unit is attacked, two rounds of combat will go on. Sometimes the
battle will continue for three rounds. Also, the skill will also work for
battles with no retaliation, meaning if you get attacked from a distance and
can't counter attack, the enemy will attack twice. Always in effect, but when
the unit with this skill is at half HP, the skill will no longer work.


 Elite:
Double experience to the unit which has this skill.
Always in effect.


 Dance:
Will allow a unit to use their turn again. Only affects one character.
Stand next to a unit that has ended their turn, and select the dance option.


 Steal:
Allows a unit to steal from another unit. If the weapon/item you are trying to
steal is less then the BLD of the unit that is stealing, it can be stolen. If
not, it cannot be stolen. Units with a higher speed than the thief cannot be
robbed.
Always in effect.


 Sun Hit:
When the skill is activated in a fight, the unit that initated the skill will
restore HP equal to the damage dealt to the opponent.
Random effect. Battle only.


 Moonlight Hit:
When attacking and this skill activates, the unit that is attacking will be
able to slice through the opponent's defense like a sharp blade going through
hot butter. Works with all weapons.
Random effect. Battle only.


 Shooting Star Hit:
Allows five extra attacks in a battle.
Random effect. Battle only.


 Big Shield:
Will negate the damage dealt if this skill activates in battle. The chance of
this skill activating depends on the unit's level; the higher the level of the
unit, the more this skill will activate.


 Grid:
Allows any unit to be able to walk through walls, and also gain the defense and
dodge bonuses.
Always in effect.

** 7. - ITEMS GUIDE - **

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
** I. - SCROLLS GUIDE - **
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Scrolls are items that increase growth rates for units. When the items are
given to a unit, they will have increased/decreased growth rates. Scrolls are
VERY helpful for revving up your unit or trying to nail out a certain weakness
some characters might have. In case you do not know which scrolls increase
certain growth for certain stats, I am making this section to help people out
with it.


I will explain the system of the scrolls -

Let's say you have a character that has around an 80% chance of gaining HP on
level up, around 40% of gaining a strength point, and 10% for Luck. Now, let's
give that character a Hezul scroll. The Hezul scroll gives you 30% extra chance
to gaining HP on a level up and 10% for Strength, but it decreases your luck
chance of going up by 10%--meaning if you gave that character a Hezul scroll,
his HP gain would be 110%, 50% for Strength, and 0% for Luck. Understand now?
Good!

I will cover the scrolls in the next section...as always, if I made any
mistakes, you can just email me at lowlyeaichu@hotmail.com

-Hezul Scroll-

Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
30% -   10%   -  0% -  0% -  0%- -10% -   0%  - 0%-  0%

How to obtain the scroll: Chapter 2: Gaiden - Rivis joins the party with it.

Notes: This is a rather nice scroll; it gives a good boost to HP and a small
boost to Strength, and since luck isn't really too important, the negative luck
gain isn't too much to worry about. ^_~

---

-Baldo Scroll-


Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
 5% -    5%   -  0% -  5% -  5% - 5% -   5%  -  0%- 0%

How to obtain the scroll: Return Romeo to his house in Chapter 3.

Notes: Quite a nice scroll. It gives a small boost to most of the good stats,
so it's a pretty welcome addition.

---

-Sety Scroll-

Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
-10% -   0%   - 10% - 0% -  30% - 0% -   0%  -  0%- 0%

How to obtain the scroll: Have Karin speak to Sety in Chapter 4: Gaiden.

Notes: Excellent for slow characters, and a bit good for getting some magic;
the negative HP gain can be rather annoying at times, however.

---

-Odo Scroll-

Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
 0% -    0%   -  0% - 30% -  0% - 0% -   0%  -  0%- 0%

How to obtain the scroll: Inside a house on the far left in Chapter 6.

Notes: Excellent scroll for characters with low skill, and since it dosent have
any bad points, it's a very useful scroll.

---

-Neir Scroll-

Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
10% -   10%   -  0% - -10% - 0% -0% -   10%  - 10%- 0%

How to obtain the scroll: Inside a treasure chest in Chapter 8: Gaiden.

Notes: Give this scroll to thieves! Combine it with an Odo scroll to get rid of
the negative Skill gains, and this will increase the chance of a thief gaining
BLD on a level up, which is extremely helpful!
Otherwise, give it to characters with low BLD.

---

-Fala Scroll-

Stat Boosts:
[HP - Strength-Magic-Skill-Speed-Luck -Defense-BLD-Move]
 0% -    5%   - 5% -  10% -  10% - 0% -  0%  - 0%-  0%

shops.

Notes: Well-rounded scroll, can be useful for any character.
