The Lords Of Fire Emblem

Fire Emblem MarthFire Emblem Sigurd Fire Emblem Seliph Fire Emblem Leif Fire Emblem Roy Fire Emblem Eliwood Fire Emblem Hector Fire Emblem Lyn Fire Emblem Eirika Fire Emblem Ephraim Fire Emblem Ike Fire Emblem Chrom Fire Emblem Lucina

So ok, looks like I’ll be making a feature of all the various classes in Fire Emblem. I’ll attempt to cover some of the traditional ones, the new ones, and some that has not been seen in forever. What are classes? Well you should know that already! They’re specialized units with certain abilities and able to wield certain weapons. But let’s get this all in detail, and also share some of the many in that specialized class. So all that said, it only makes sense for me to start with the Lord class. After all, you do play as a Lord in the games.

…Or do you?

Lords

The Lords are obviously the most important people in the Fire Emblem series. They’re usually the main characters, that is why. If they die, it is game over. So naturally, these characters will have the most development (generally) out of every character in the franchise. They also are one of your strongest characters. Usually. In doing some research, some Lords are pretty useless. The problem is, you have to train them to be good, because you can’t rest them in battle. So whether you hate them or not, Lords are a key factor when it comes to strategy and beating the game.

Now, generally most Lords are of noble ability. There is one character who becomes a Lord due to various events in their respective games. They also happen to have their main weapon be swords. Of course, that usually is the general weapon of choice, to wield a mythical blade. And out of all the FE games, a lot of them have sword-wielding characters. When they are able to change their class, they can wield a new weapon, but…I’ll get to a post on Promoted Lords some other time. Yes, that’s right, I’m devoting these class posts to one class and not their evolutions! Now, here are all the Lords in Fire Emblem (accompanied by awesome art I found scouring the interwebs. If it is yours, let me know!)

Marth

Fire Emblem Marth

Games He’s a Lord: Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi, Monshou No Nazo, Shadow Dragon, Shin Monshou No Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyuu

Who Is Marth: He is the central protagonist and Lord-class character of the original game, Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, as well as their respective remakes. Although Marth’s Fire Emblem titles were released only in Japan at the time, he has acquired more widespread international attention through his appearance in the Nintendo brawler, Super Smash Bros. Melee. The appearance of Marth and Roy sparked a greater level of Western interest in the Fire Emblem series, and it was in part because of this that Nintendo began releasing the games internationally beginning with Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, the seventh title in the series.

Fun Fact About Marth: He is the only Lord character who cannot change his class. So A)this means you won’t see him in the Great Lord write up and B)He is the only Lord to be able to go past LV.20…in the remake games at least.
