“If they think we'll sit by and let them join forces with the Aurelians, then they have another thing coming. With this ridersbane, I'll litter the lea with their cavalry!”
—Bentheon, upon sighting the Altean army

Bentheon is a cavalier from Macedon who appears as a boss of Chapter 4 in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. He was omitted in Fire Emblem: Mystery Of The Emblem with having his chapter skipped, but returns in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon maintaining his same role.

Profile

Bentheon senses Marth and his forces arriving momentarily towards his location, and readies his troops for battle. He had Matthis forced to fight in his ranks, but later turns as Lena was able to sway him to Marth's forces. Bentheon continues to fight to ensure Altea's forces does not form the alliance Aurelis. Unfortunate for him, the ensuring battle sees his efforts being for naught and he is killed in battle.

Personality

Owing to his personal status as boss unit for one chapter in a much larger plot, Bentheon's personality is not very well developed. Based on the few interactions that he engages in, however, one can still determine defining traits that form his character. For one, Bentheon displays a great deal of pride. A fact shown when praising the deadly Ridersbane he carries in hand, believing it's power will easily rid of Altea's cavalry despite the odds against him. His prideful manner with commanding a portion of Macedon's powerful troops, also displays his judgement towards Marth's small army attempting to form an alliance with Aurelis, and calls them as "his band of lickspittles".

Overall

Bentheon is a formidable foe because of the devastating Ridersbane he carries. Because this chapter takes place early in the game, he will most likely eliminate any of your horseback riders in one turn if you accidently leave one next to his space to attack. His stats are even more menacing on higher difficulties. However, he is a stationary boss with no range weapons, so it is safe to attack him with any ranged weapons.
