Radiant Dawn


  • Alder is the only antagonist in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn that you never fight in battle, because he is killed by the Black Knight before you could fight him.
  • Judging from his illustrated and map appearance, he is likely some type of tier 1 armored knight, but it is not revealed to the player what type he is, as he is never seen holding a weapon on any of his map appearances. However, by exploring the internal data from Alder's map appearances, it can be seen that he has the data of an Armor Sword.
  • In the Choose Your Legends Round 5 event, Alder, alongside Dolth from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, placed in 500th place, making them the two least voted for characters in the event.
