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 7: Noble Lineage
To unlock the Paralogue 7 extra mission you will have to give Maribelle a support relationship of S. Of course you will have to take her into the battle and use her or Chrom to recruit Brady. Once you have talked to him with either of these character, he’ll join during the battle. Brady starts with the Warrior Monk advanced class which is an offensive/support hybrid: this class can wield both axes and staves but it’s not excellent in either of those fields. I personally don’t use Warrior Monks because their defense stat is truly pitiful. Also their mobility is not too great: there are better healers with higher mobility than him. If you want to try him out make sure you train him enough before sending him into story battles. You can also chose to customize him with another class, either healer or axe user. If you use him as he comes, prepare to lose him as soon as he is attacked.
