Characters in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Fire Emblem 6 has a massive cast of 54 playable characters. It truly is meant to be iron-manned, considering the game throws a few new units at you every couple of chapters. Since it takes place 20 years after the events of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade (FE7), there are quite a few recurring units, even some that were previously playable in FE7 such as Marcus and Bartre.

This page lists all playable characters along with some basic information, sorted in order of join time. Click into each character's page to see detailed game data.
