Colm has surprisingly high growths for a thief, but his low bases and swordlock mean that using him in combat tends to be tricky at best. He can take or dodge a few hits, but he needs quite a bit of leveling to become remotely self-sufficient when taking out enemies. Despite Colm's weak combat, he is still useful for a time because of his [[Thief]] utility, since he is the first [[Thief]] in the game and will probably stay that way for some time. His lack of combat skill doesn't really matter, since he tends to be running around picking locks instead of fighting. However, Colm's usefulness in this regard becomes somewhat obsolete once Chest Keys become available for purchase in the Overworld. Colm is still useful mid-game, helping out in Fog of War battles and in the desert chapter to help search for items in the sand, and while he is inferior as a combat unit compared to others, he is still capable of holding his own with training and investment.

Colm has two promotions, [[Assassin]] and [[Rogue]], both of which give him nearly identical stat bonuses. As an [[Assassin]], Colm gains the [[Lethality|Silencer]] skill and a boost to his sword rank, but he also loses his ability to steal items from enemies. As a Rogue, Colm can pick doors and chests without needing Lockpicks and can retain his steal ability. However, there is only one Ocean Seal that can be obtained without purchasing in a Secret Shop or finding in the Creature Campaign. Other units in the army are better candidates for its usage before using it on him. Furthermore, neither promotion tends to be especially useful; the Silencer skill is unhelpful when a critical will probably kill the opponent anyway, and Pick tends to be redundant when it's not hard to have a good supply of lockpicks and keys for Colm to use. Unless the player is planning to turn Colm into a full-time combat unit, he can be safely left unpromoted, leaving the Ocean Seal for someone else.

===Overall===
 
Colm is surprisingly good. He may not have as much skill as the others, but his luck and speed makes up for it. Colm should hold his own in combat with good Hit Chance, attack, and a decent chance to use critical hits even in his Thief job. In Fog Of War battles, he is useful as a scouting unit. In terms of promotion, Assassin has its advantages, while there are other characters that can get that promotion (i.e. [[Joshua]], [[Marisa]]). Rogue is really the best path to go, though, because when Rennac finally arrives, Colm can already be in a decent level.

“You need anything stolen, I'm your man. 'Course, my blade's no joke either.”
—Colm at the second attack on Renvall

Colm is a playable character in the game Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He first appears after Chapter 2 and can be recruited in Chapter 3 by having Neimi talk to him inside the bandit's hideout. They can automatically have a support conversation. Before being recruited he will appear as a neutral unit and will walk around opening doors and treasure chests in the hideout.

Profile

A chivalrous thief from Renais and a childhood friend of Neimi, Colm managed to steal Eirika's bracelet while 'walking by'. Colm used his abilities as a thief to keep himself, and later Neimi alive. He would steal items of value from people that seemed wealthy to pay for necessities for himself and Neimi.

During Chapter 3, Colm infiltrated a bandit hideout to find Neimi's lost handmirror, stolen by bandits. Neimi, who was worried for Colm's safety, found Eirika and convinced her group to go with her the Bandit's Hideout and find Colm.

Colm is rather snide and arrogant, but genuinely cares for Neimi. He is also quite proud of his thieving prowess. It is often hard to tell if Colm is exhibiting his uncaring for others or if he is simply clumsy. In a conversation with Moulder it is revealed he had burned a pack filled with Moulder's belongings twice, Moulder then says he is 'concerned about the condition of Colm's soul.'

Colm has a weakness for Neimi being sad or crying, which she does quite often. He will often try to pretend he doesn't care or pester her about being a "crybaby". If the two obtain an A Support, Colm will be unable to keep up his facade and comfort Neimi.

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.

Colm has surprisingly high growths for a thief, but his low bases and swordlock mean that using him in combat tends to be tricky at best. He can take or dodge a few hits, but he needs quite a bit of leveling to become remotely self-sufficient when taking out enemies. Despite Colm's weak combat, he is still useful for a time because of his Thief utility, since he is the first Thief in the game and will probably stay that way for some time. His lack of combat skill doesn't really matter, since he tends to be running around picking locks instead of fighting. However, Colm's usefulness in this regard becomes somewhat obsolete once Chest Keys become available for purchase in the Overworld. Colm is still useful mid-game, helping out in Fog of War battles and in the desert chapter to help search for items in the sand, and while he is inferior as a combat unit compared to others, he is still capable of holding his own with training and investment.

Colm has two promotions, Assassin and Rogue, both of which give him nearly identical stat bonuses. As an Assassin, Colm gains the Silencer skill and a boost to his sword rank, but he also loses his ability to steal items from enemies. As a Rogue, Colm can pick doors and chests without needing Lockpicks and can retain his steal ability. However, there is only one Ocean Seal that can be obtained without purchasing in a Secret Shop or finding in the Creature Campaign.

Furthermore, neither promotion tends to be especially useful; the Silencer skill is unhelpful when a critical will probably kill the opponent anyway, and Pick tends to be redundant when it's not hard to have a good supply of lockpicks and keys for Colm to use. Unless the player is planning to turn Colm into a full-time combat unit, he can be safely left unpromoted, leaving the Ocean Seal for someone else.
