Xavier Geitz

Like many gamers in America, Xavier's introduction to the Fire Emblem series came by Marth and Roy's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Melee. As a Marth main, he felt compelled to try out the source material. He did so by playing Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade. Fire Emblem quickly became his favorite tactical role-playing game franchise of all time. When he isn't writing about or playing Fire Emblem, you can find him playing The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (The GBA version) and Onimusha Tactics.

Fire Emblem Wyvern Rider

Intro There are two iconic flying base classes in Fire Emblem: the Pegasus Knight and the Wyvern Rider. Pegasus Knights and Wyvern Riders have been franchise staples since the beginning, with unique advantages and disadvantages over the other. You can always find healthy debates about which is the better of the two.  But let’s face …

Fire Emblem Assassin

Intro The plots of many Fire Emblem games center around the main character and co going up against immeasurable odds. Typically, an empire suddenly declares war on the world and strikes at countries in every direction.

Fire Emblem Wyvern Lord

Intro We’ve covered Wyvern Riders, so now it’s time to delve into the history of their older siblings, the Wyvern Lords.  Wyvern Riders have received quite a few promotion options over the years, but the Wyvern Lord class is the only option that has stuck around. And I can see why Intelligent Systems got attached …

Fire Emblem Valkyrie

Intro Magic-based classes are some of the most useful units in Fire Emblem. Whether it’s providing invaluable utility as Staff users or raining down arcane destruction on your foes, magical characters have a lot of upsides.  One of those upsides, however, is rarely mobility. Most magical characters are infantry units and suffer from pretty mediocre …

Fire Emblem Monk

Intro When you think of monks in video games, you think of bald guys in brown robes that are good at martial arts. That’s not how they work in Fire Emblem. Think of monks in Fire Emblem as sort of like the magical equivalent of John Wick. The villains of their worlds grind their gears, …

Fire Emblem Bishop

Who says Bishops are only good for delivering sermons, baptizing babies, and spreading the gospel? Not Intelligent Systems, that’s for sure. When these holy men and women need to get down in the trenches with the rest of your army, they’re far from helpless. Bishops are one of many magical classes in Fire Emblem, and …

Fire Emblem Priest

Intro The Priest is one of several base classes in Fire Emblem that is of the more holy being variety. The other classes are the Monk and the Cleric, and players routinely mix them up. An understandable mistake, considering how similar they are all.  While it’s true that there are some dominant offensive classes in …

Fire Emblem Paladin

The Paladin is probably my favorite archetype in Western entertainment mediums. A gallant figure clad in shiny armor, often on horseback, riding into battle against the forces of evil. Or just people from an opposing country because that’s how war works, but you get what I mean.  Amongst all the promoted units that have appeared …

Fire Emblem Mage

I’ve spent quite a lot of time here on FEFanatics covering units that use Swords, Lances, and Axes. It’s high time we delved into the world of magic, and what better way to start than with the Mage class? There are three primary types of magic in Fire Emblem: Anima, Light, and Dark. Mages specialize …
