Kent & Sain

Kent and Sain are knights in the service of Caelin; Lyndis’ home country. Kent is the more serious of the two, why Sain is more relaxed and regards himself as something of a lady’s man. They fit the Cain and Abel archetype seen in so many Fire Emblem games. The archtype being that many fire emblem games give you two cavaliers that are usually very close friends and have differing statistical growths. Cain and Able were the names of the first of this group of characters in one of the earlier Fire Emblem games.

The two of them are opposites in every aspect of the word, they even have different growths with Kent focusing on power and Sain focusing on agility. While the two of them quite different they sort of fit together as one entity, one isn’t complete without the other. They are a great comedic foil. A knight is seen as honorable and loyal yet charming and flirtatious. Sain and Kent together makes a full knight while separate they are only half of one. In a support conversation they share together you can watch as they teach each other the aspect they lack. Kent learns to lighten up and Sain learns to be more serious. Kent: I’ll grant you, talking to women has never been my strong suit. Sain: Right, then! Shut your mouth and open your ears! Your lessons will begin with basic flattery! Sain: Why, when we get back to Caelin, we should gather all the lovely lasses we know and have one big, magnificent–Kent: Don’t start with that again, Sain. This is no time for gaiety. There is still much fighting ahead of us. Either one of us could fall in the battle to come.

    Being a fan of Fire Emblem, I must say this brought me good memories…I love Linus and Lloyd as characters…for Sacred Stones, I’d like to see Lyon, Joshua and Cormag, those are the ones that I remember being very well developed

    • Lyon is a given. He’s the most well developed character in the game. We’ll take a look at the others.

    The first Fire Emblem I played was on the Game Boy Advance (First FE translated ever, I think its the 7th entry). I fell in Love with the game within the first minutes!! My most loved character are: Raven (red haired merceneray turning into a bad ass Hero later), Priscilla the troubadour (Raven sister, turning into a beautiful Valkyrie later) and Jaffar (a silent and murdrous assasin that shows rare affection toward Nino, a little girl mage).
    I wish Nintendo woul keep on making more FE and can’t wait for the one on 3DS to get localized!

    • My favorites are Guy, Karel and Lyn, I love the swordmasters.

  • This is what’s so great about Fire Emblem. The characters have so much depth and you have to play through multiple times to get to know them fully.

    • Natural Harmonia

      This was made five years ago. I wonder how you feel today about Fire Emblem…

  • Honorable mention: Karel. Goes from psycho killer in 7 to peaceful swordmonk in 6.
