“Well, my mother fought with the liberation army. After the war we all fled to Silesse. But my mother and baby sister were taken from me, and this pendant is all I have left of her. I found out just recently that it was King Bloom who took them from me. I also found out that my mother had passed away but that my sister was still alive! YOU are my sister! I've come all the way from Silesse for you!”
—Arthur, talking to Tine in her recruitment conversation

Arthur is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the son of Tailtiu and the brother of Tine.

His substitute character is Amid, who is incidentally his cousin.

ProfileEdit

Separated from his mother and sister from a young age, Arthur perpetually grew up in Silesse alone, mastering the art of Wind Magic. He later meets and travels with Fee to search for Tine, who at the time is in Alster, which leads to the events of Chapter 6. He initially holds a grudge towards his uncle, Bloom, for wrenching his family away from him, but later develops a deep hatred for his aunt, Hilda, as well, as he learns from Tine that she is directly responsible for inflicting the most amount of pain, abuse, and suffering to his mother and sister.

PersonalityEdit

Arthur seems to be rude and harsh on the outside, but is, in actuality, a kind and sensitive individual on the inside, shown in a battle conversation with Fee. Arthur is also cool-headed, logical and sharp in his responses to quips made towards him by Fee.

Arthur's vulnerable side is revealed upon his learning of his mother Tailtiu's tragic fate and the suffering his surviving sister Tine endured. This results in him being concerned, and protective over Tine, as he resolves to never be separated from her ever again.

OverallEdit

Secret Book (Artwork)
Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Arthur is a very competent mage if his father is a magic user paired along with his Wrath skill. Claud will provide him with great growths due to passing down Major Bragi blood, however, he will not gain any new skills or any tomes. Lewyn can make Arthur a huge asset in the beginning of the game by immediately obtaining Forseti, most of the time being able activate Adept. Tine will not be able to call on Adept as much as her brother initially, but can still make it due to the skillset given to her. Lastly, Azelle passes down Fjalar blood and Pursuit allowing him to double enemies and have high magic. However, this will hold him back defensively, not keeping up with Claud's Luck and Resistance or Lewyn's speed.

The best paring for Arthur is Lewyn, as Arthur will inherit Forseti from the start of the game and will be a consistent powerhouse for most of the second generation thanks to Forseti's natural power and his high Speed growth. While he will lack Pursuit and will not double as consistently, he still will be one of the most solid generation two characters. A Pursuit Ring should be considered, but is ultimately optional. The second best father to pick for him is Azelle, due to letting him have Minor Fjalar and Thrud blood together, which will grant him high Skill and Magic. He will also have a good skill combo, Pursuit and Wrath, which will allow him to plow through enemies, due to being able to attack twice with Wrath, something Tailtiu could not do due to her lack of Pursuit

In Chapter 6, Arthur may speak to Seliph, but nothing will result of it.

In Chapter 7, Arthur can recruit Tine by speaking to her.

In Chapter 8, Arthur may speak to Fee, and she will gain three points of HP and 100 love points with him.

In the Final Chapter, if neither Arthur nor Tine has a lover, he may speak to her, and she will gain one point of luck.

In the Final Chapter, after Freege is captured, if Arthur and Fee are lovers, she may speak to him, and she will gain three points of skill.

Love GrowthsEdit

Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.

EtymologyEdit

Arthur was a mythical king of England who wielded the Excalibur and was aided by his Knights of the Round Table, as well as Merlin and his wife Guinivere. He met a morbid end, due to wounds suffered from his nephew/son Mordred.

TriviaEdit

  • Since Tailtiu arrives in the game together with Claud, they are often paired together by beginner players. While this will lead to Arthur joining Seliph's army with the Valkyrie Staff in his inventory, he will be unable to use it due to class restrictions. This phenomenon has been adapted into a running gag amongst the creators of the Fire Emblem: 4-koma Manga, where Arthur's attempts to call upon the powers of the staff often result in him either utilising it in an unskillful manner, or even harming his allies with offensive magic.
  • Arthur was one of the scrapped characters in Thracia 776. His in-game portrait can still be seen.
  • The notes from Shouzou Kaga expanded a bit on Arthur's childhood. After being separated from Tailtiu and Tine, Arthur was fortunate that a kind old woman from a neighboring village adopted him and gave him shelter. A traveling merchant (actually Lewyn) later visited him and Arthur learned Wind magic from him before eventually departing to Manster.[1]
