“A word of advice, friend. Never sneak up on a man unfolding a treasure map!! Or...are you offering to come with me? That’s why you’re here, right?”
— Dart talking to Geitz in a support conversation

Dart is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is foulmouthed, but kind and extremely loyal to those he puts his trust in.

History[edit | edit source]

Although never fully revealed to be true, Dart was most likely born as Rebecca's brother Dan. Years ago, he and Wil left the village on a journey. The two were separated in Badon and Wil never found him. Dan wound up washed up on the shore, but none of the villagers would go near him as it was a religious holiday in which it was taboo to touch blood.

Finally, Captain Fargus and his crew picked him up. He became an amnesiac, and was given the name Dart, and soon became Fargus's most trusted mate.

In Game[edit | edit source]

Description: One of Fargus's corsairs. Foulmouthed, but kind.

Overall[edit | edit source]

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.

Dart is a decent growth unit with high base level, HP and strength along with good offensive growths. He might have trouble with dodgier units considering his low skill and luck. Unfortunately, his promotional item arrives more than 5-6 chapters later than he does. In addition to, it comes a opportunity cost of promoting Dart or selling it for 25000 gold.

However, if the player does commit to using Dart, which may still require some investment, they will be rewarded with a fast, high-power offensive asset who will contribute much on both phases, especially when equipped with ranged weapons like the Hand Axe or Tomahawk on the enemy phase. The critical bonus of the Berserker class also improves his performance by raising his crit chance usually above 20%, even with the standard Iron Axe.

Quotes

“I'm Dart, brave crewman of Fargus's pirates, and I fear nothing!”
—Quote at Light, the final chapter

Possible Endings[edit | edit source]

Dart - Badon's Commando

Dart took a grave wound protecting Fargus in a skirmish. He vanished at sea, but rumors claim he might be in Pherae.

Farina and Dart

Farina’s love for Dart compelled her to stay in Lycia. She visited Badon often and flirted with Dart at every chance. He never knew how serious she was when she told him that a female pirate would be quite profitable!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although they are the same person, Dan and Dart do have similar names. Looking closely at the name, the rt in Dart can look like an n. This could also explain how he got the name of Dart. The same thing can also be said for his Japanese name ダーツ (Dart) and ダン (Dan) due to the similarity between katakana ツ and ン
