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 14: Rival Bands
To unlock Paralogue 14 you will have to give Miriel a support relationship of S. To recruit him simply go to the lower left side of the village and talk to him using Chrom or Miriel: once the talking is done he’ll join you. Laurent is a really good mage coming with high proficiency for a lot of different magical tomes. Starting from his class you can customize him any way you want while keeping him strictly as a magic oriented class. Make him learn some good magic related skills and you will have one of the best mages at your disposal. Pair him up with other magic oriented characters to make him even more deadly or with any other character who manages to augment his movement range and speed: with a high enough speed stat you’ll be able to attack most enemies twice. Couple this with high magic power to defeat most foes in a single attack.
