Hicks is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a knight of Munster who joins Leif after hearing about their efforts in rescuing children who were captured in the Child Hunts. He has a son named Murphy.
Hicks first appears in Chapter 6, where he waits any member of Leif's army to visit his home. If Leif's army had saved his son Murphy in Chapter 4x, Hicks will pledge his loyalty to them, vowing to teach Raydrik a lesson.
Hicks then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He returns home to his family thereafter, where he keeps his axe at the ready to fend off any potential aggressors.
Due to Hicks' limited characterisation in Thracia 776, not much is known about him. But from what little screen-time he is given, it can be surmised that he is family-oriented, placing the needs of his family above that of his country. This can be seen in his choice to defect to Leif's army the moment he learns that it has rescued his son Murphy.
