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.
- Paralogue 10: Ambivalence
Recruiting Severa will not be as easy as recruiting all the other optional characters. To unlock Paralogue 10 you will have to give Cordelia a Support relationship of S and talk to Severa with either Chrom or Cordelia. Once this is done, you will have to let Severa speak to Holland and this may prove to be quite difficult: if you let her go alone she’s obviously going to die so you will have to escort her with a couple strong allies. You may want to use some units having a good mix of attack, defense and movement range since things can get bad quite easily: this is even more true if you’re playing the game in Classic Mode. However all the trouble will be worth it since Severa is quite a good character, coming with the Armsthrift skill which prevents weapons to get damaged and destroyed after being used for a set amount of time. You may want to give Severa a rare strong weapon and you can be sure that the weapon will never break.
