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 17 – The Threat Of Silence
To unlock Paralogue 17 you will just have to complete Chapter 18 in the main story. Tiki will be recruited automatically during the battle so don’t worry about bringing specifi units into this battle. Recruiting is indeed automatic but keeping her alive through the battle may not be so easy: she’s really weak in the beginning and you’ll have to defend her from enemy attacks. Over time, however, Tiki will become a great addition to the team with incredibly nice Luck, Speed and Skill growths. All the other stats can be boosted with tonics, making her a really good well rounded character. It really wouldn’t be a Fire Emblem game without Tiki and she’s in Awakening to become a mainstay of your army. Even if you get her late in the game, as the Paralogue are optional missions, you may still want to try her out in some optional battes: you’ll surely find her so good that you’ll include her in story missions too.
