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 9: Noble Lineage
To unlock Paralogue 9 you’ll need to give Sumia a support relationship of S. To get her to join get close to her with Chrom or Sumia during the battle and talk to her: once the dialogue is over, she’ll join your side during the battle itself. Her starting class if the Pegasus Knight but unlike Owain she has a better spear proficiency. She can still use swords and you may want to let her proficiency increase in that weapon category since they’re overall stronger than spears. Her speed is pretty good and movement range is just as nice. She’s not too different from other ground mounted character classes so you may want to switch them out to allow her to participate in battle. She can also be customized with a few basic classes: if you want to do so, make sure you pick up classes who can use spears or swords and that can benefit from her speed stat bonuses. She can be used as soon as you get her to join as well.
