“Yes. We will go to your aid once we release the people here.”

Brighton is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. A former knight of Munster, he defects from his knighthood to join Ced's Magi Squad. According to the instruction manual for the game, Brighton was originally a knight of Munster due to his father being a retainer of Raydrik, although he later defected after being horrified at the way the regime treated civilians. Brighton is also Machyua's lover.


Brighton first appears in Chapter 4, where, under orders from Ced, he, along with Machyua and Lara, breaks into the Munster dungeons to rescue Leif after the prince is captured by Raydrik.

Brighton then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He returns home to Munster thereafter, working to restore it to its former prosperity and imparting swordsmanship skills to the people. Brighton also marries an unnamed woman, who is likely Machyua, and opens a small shop with her.


Due to his limited characterization, not much is known of Brighton. But from what little screen-time he has, it can be deduced that he has a strong sense of righteousness, one that motivated him to turn away from his homeland in order to join the rebellion.

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.

Brighton is a solid unit with average stats across the board. He also comes with respectable Build, and is also equipped with the ability to fight either mounted or unmounted. He also comes with the Wrath skill, meaning every initial attack performed during the enemy phase will be a critical hit.

Brighton is especially useful in Chapter 4. Although he is placed at a weapon disadvantage against the Soldier reinforcements due to being dismounted, he is able to capture most of them, inflict double attacks on some of them, and even perform critical strikes on any of them who approach him first.

Brighton becomes even more adept at capturing enemies while mounted, especially if he is armed with the Brave Axe.

To further amplify the accuracy of his Wrath hits, Brighton should be armed with the Skill and Luck Rings. Boosting his growth rates in these stats with Scrolls is also helpful. Keeping Machyua nearby will also help him benefit from support bonuses.
