One of the main focuses of recent Fire Emblem games is the possibility to recruit a lot of characters for your army. Fire Emblem: Awakening is not so different in this regard, with a lot of characters available for recruitment. As always, many of the characters can join you automatically but for some others you will have to take specific steps to make them join like deploying a specific character and make them talk with the possible recruit. With the many advanced classes available in the game you may want to recruit as many characters as possible to create the most diverse army: some classes are only useful in specific situations and that’s where the many characters of the game will come in. In this guide we will be listing all the characters available, both automatic recruitments and optionals, with small descriptions for each character: a lot of the automatically recruited characters often have something they’re really good at and I always recommend to not change their class to a different type. You will have plenty of occasions to do so with the optional characters: unlike the story ones, they have some more average features and are perfect to experiment with customization. So save your seals for these characters.
- Chapter 12: The Seacomers
Cherche is recruited autmatically during the chapter so don’t worry about bringing some specific characters in the battle to talk to her. Cherche is probably the best aerial mounted character you will have met up to this point: she has great movement, as do all the characters with her same class and she’s a quite competent fighter since she can use axes and comes with an already high proficiency for them. If you are looking for a reliable winged axe user, she’s your woman: there are also some slight customization possibilities for her by changing her class to some pure offensive one which uses axes. By doing this you will increase her proficiency as well as obtaining some nice strength bonuses. As a support she’s just as good, improving mobility, strength and defense. An overall solid unit, best suited for maps without archers if she’s still in an aerial mounted class type.
