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 13: Rival Bands
To unlock Paralogue 13 you will have to give Panne a Support relationship of S. Recruting him, however is not so simple: he’ll consider your units as enemies and will attack whoever gets in his movement and attack range. It’s best to let Panne get close to him while in her transformed state: Yarne is quite strong and he may end up killing Chrom is he’s the one approaching him. Once the talking is done, he’ll join you. He’s a really great addition to your team: pair him up with Panne, let them transform and watch your enemies turn to dust, literally. All the beast allies are incredibly strong and don’t require any kind of training to be usable in story battles: if you need a strong tank capable of dishing some serious damage, he’s your man or rather, beast. In his untransformed form he’s kinda weak and may die if left on the front: always keep an eye on him and make him get way from the fighting when the transformation is about to wear off.
