“As a child, I loved riding on my father’s boat. I respected my father, whom everyone called master. But one day, I ventured into the hold of the ship. I saw those broken men rowing, like lost souls in hell. I saw...children...who were my age...”
—Geitz in a support conversation with Fiora

Geitz is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is a tough-as-nails warrior embarrassed by his past and wishes to make his own destiny. He can be recruited by Dart and has a brother named Geese.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Geitz was born to a merchant in Bulgar. He and his family helped the people of Ilia when their crops died during the winter. As a child, he ventured into the hull on his father's ships to see children and slaves rowing the boat. Ever since then, he hated his father and broke all ties with his family.

After Nergal's death, it is unknown if Geitz reconciled with his family. If he has an A support with Dart, he will join him on his pirate ship.

Secret Book (Artwork).png
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.

Geitz is a great unit who is unfortunately locked behind a steep wall. In order to access his chapter and recruit him, your Lords must have a combined level of 50, which means that one must not only be using all three characters but invest heavily into them (having their levels be around 16-18).

Other than that, Geitz is generally up to the standards of Blazing Blade's strong prepromotes. He has great base stats, an excellent weapon type, and has access to strong weapons due to his high weapon ranks. He is comparable in many respects to Hawkeye, being a sturdy prepromoted axe-wielder who shows up in the midgame. Though he's not quite as tanky as Hawkeye, and lacks the benefits of Hawkeye's Berserker class, Geitz compensates in his own ways: his 13-14 Speed is sufficient to double nearly anything that isn't a boss, and he even has a decent growth in the stat. He also has B-rank bows at base level, and though bows are generally held in low regard in Blazing Blade, Geitz is one of the best users of them, given his great Strength and Speed and his ability to use strong bows at base. He can one-round Wyvern enemies with even the more common bows, and with a Brave Bow and Filla's Might, he can actually take down some bosses. Overall, Geitz when obtained is a very solid prepromote, and should be made use of.

Character Ending[edit | edit source]
