Frederick for Gerome!

This is Bad Advice and shouldn't be followed.

TC:
Brady: Ricken but you have him listed twice, so really: Someone who has magic
Gerome: Vaike is the better of those two. Henry is the other choice for Gerome.
Owain: Ricken, but see Brady.

Fred is a low tier father for Gerome and offers nothing that plays towards his strengths.

Telling someone to take a bad option is bad advice.

Out of those options:

Brady should get Ricken, but anyone else who has magic or speed (and doesn't gimp magic) is a good choice. So aside from Ricken, there's also Lon'qu, Henry, Libra and Virion.

Gerome is good with either. Both give Axefaire, which is what really matters. Vaike is slightly better for giving more Strength and Speed, but imo it makes very little difference in the end.

Owain should get Ricken. Lissa and Vaike cancel each other out with their mods, you end up getting very mediocre strength and poor magic (I can confirm that it's s***, and I would never do it again). Aside from Ricken, there's also Libra or Henry, with one of those he's guaranteed to have at least Luna or Vengeance + good magic.

I remember when Fred was considered a good choice for Gerome, but those days have passed. Fred on paper gives good mods, but misses out on the Barbarian class, which is very key for Gerome to have considering he wants to put all that strength behind axes.

Those days were stupid. The GDL days were stupid as s***-- only the neo Dark Ages [Post Release, just before Apoth dropped] were dumber. f*** the Dark Ages [just before and after release] had a smarter fanbase.

Fred!Gerome was only ever praised during the GDL days, but much like everything else in the GDL days, it was because people weren't looking at a picture beyond "Give everyone these skills" [which lead to dumb s*** like "Male Robin is best and needs be paired with Nowi because that's the only way to give Gale, Dual Guard+ and Luna to Nah."] It was forgetting that Pair Up exists, and by time you have the kids that you were optimizing for you were exclusively using it with S-supports amongst other really bad ideas from that era.

Frederick!Gerome isn't a bad idea depending on how you build Gerome. If you build him as Wyvern Lord, he'll have some nice Strength and Defense. A pair up with his father can make him a tanking god. You can also slap Luna, Pavise, and Aegis on him, so there's that.
Not saying he's better than Vaike, but is he a bad option? Not at all.

Physical Tanks are worthless. Simple as that.

Worthless on a unit that never is on the frontline. Two of the mentioned skills are worthless period.
