If some of you read my posts before, you would know that I don’t give a crap about stats and bases and focuses more on the overall character of my army. So I ask to the wide community of FE, which fire emblem character do you like the most as a character. For me, well, I only played two fire emblem games, that being Three Houses and Sacred Stones (haven’t finished them either). For all I can say, I’ll delve deeper into Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ characters but as of now, my favourite character has always been Amelia.
Why this character specifically? To be honest, I didn’t know myself when I first encountered her in Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones. What they introduced in that game was ‘trainee’ units, units below the normal classes and are needed to be level 10 to promote into one. I always found this to be a good touch in Sacred Stones because I would delve into their character and make them strong. One of these units was Amelia, who is regarded to be one of the worst units in the game (I didn’t even use tower of Valni and she was still good). When I first encountered her on Ephraim’s route, I didn’t know how to recruit her. I looked at the support menu to see who she has a support with and I tried Neimi since they were both clumsy. That didn’t work so I tried Natasha without thinking, that didn’t work either. Evantually I looked up how to recruit her and found out that could use Ephraim or Franz. I sent out Franz to talk to her and… I honestly enjoyed the conversation. It was then I saw my OTP of the game. While progressing through the game, I grew fond of the younger cast of the game, especially Amelia. Just seeing them grow into warriors was satisfactory for me. Then, I decided to dive deeper into Amelia’s character. I went onto the fandom website read her background information and BOY did I spoil myself. Seeing that she’s fighting so she can protect those she loves was inspiring and the fact that she knew that fighting against the army of Renais was wrong and chose their side showed her caring heart and good will. She’s the reason why I don’t give a crap about stats and more on character. I’ve taken a liking to her and wish to do most I can with my units if it means developing their characters.
