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.

Lon’Qu will join your army right after the end of the battle. He’s truly a great addition to your team since he’s really good in damage dealing and comes with the Killing Edge weapon, which increases critical hits chances. Lon Qu is best used as a frontline unit so you can can consider developing him as a sword user and any improvements on his basic class are enough. Also consider pairing with someone who can incresy his already high speed and attack power: during counterattacks he can become even more deadly than he already is.

Getting Prince Marth is a good reason to play the DLC maps of the game. Marth is not the best unit you can find, but he’s pretty good at dealing damage and he’s also proficient with swords. The original Fire Emblem hero will be a decent addition to your team, even though supports won’t improve his performance too much. If you’re into that nostalgic feeling, by all means use him since he’s not too bad.
