“Heh, these old bones are still good for something. Farewell, my prince. Live, and grow strong…”
—Jagen if he was made the decoy in Prologue IV of Shadow Dragon

Jagen is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.

Being a veteran knight of Altea, Jagen acts as Marth's guardian and advisor. He is often one of the people Marth turns to for guidance.

According to the Takayashiki Hideo's Mystery of the Emblem novel adaptation, Jagen is 58 years old.

ProfileEdit

He steps out off the battlefield in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem but still stays by Marth's side as an advisor. Afterwards, he dies and his position is given to Cain. In Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, he only takes to the field once just to train with Kris.

PersonalityEdit

Like most other characters in the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem, Jagen's personality is not very well-developed, with much emphasis having been placed on his functionality as a combat unit on the battlefield. That aside, like most other knights appearing in the series, Jagen has been portrayed to be an individual who is fiercely patriotic to the country whom he has pledged his allegiance to (Altea), participating in many battles under its banner for decades. His devotion to his country is especially evident in the Prologue of Shadow Dragon, where he is one of few units who can be selected to act as the decoy to ensure that Marth and the rest of his retainers succeed in fleeing Altea. Should he be chosen, Jagen's parting words are ones that are gallantly courageous, where he, in spite of the dire state of his situation, ironically muses over the suitability of his age being a deciding factor in him being chosen as the sacrifice.

More dimensions to Jagen's character are introduced with the onset of New Mystery of the Emblem, where he frequently engages Kris in preambling discussions before the onset of each battle. Through these interactions, one can deduce Jagen to be both wise and prudent, as he constantly imparts sound advice to Kris to ensure that they form effective tactical decisions.

Overall Edit

As his Archetype suggests, Jagen starts out with good stats, but has very low growth rates in most stats. His base stats are actually not as high as the likes of Marcus, but he will still be very strong in the early game, as he is durable, has very high hit rates, and can either use his iron sword to chip enemies, or his silver lance to deal a lot of damage, especially to bosses. Thanks to his high skill, he can also use javelins well. If Jagen gets a lucky level or two, he can hold up throughout the midgame. However, he will be outclassed by Cain, Abel, and Hardin. Due to his high lance rank, he can still use a forged Ridersbane or Dragonpike and kill most cavaliers/manaketes with it. Jagen can be reclassed to a Dracoknight if the player desires another flier, as he can still put his lance rank to good use. Late game, there are so many better fighters that he can not be realistically be considered a good combat unit, and in fact, he can be doubled on high difficulties. Until then, however, he has served his purpose well.

OverallEdit

Secret Book (Artwork)
Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.

In Heroes, Jagen, true to his archetype is good when summoned early and falls behind in later levels. If summoned at 4*, his attack is decent with his Silver Lance and can two hit K.O most enemies in the early game of story mode (although most units can do the same thing). His Defense, Attack and Speed are all terrible at max level and his only good stat is his Resistance, being comparable to Niles, who ranks 5th in Resistance. Therefore, Jagen is fine for the early chapters if summoned early, but due to his slow and frail all around stats, Jagen would most likely be sacrificed for Fury and Fortify Cavalry to other heroes.

Quotes Edit

“Sire... Fight for Altea...”
—Jagen's death quote in Shadow Dragon
“Prove to me that you are worthy!”

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

Jagen is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Edit

Jagen appears in Chapter 6 during the second trial to acquire the Opera of Light: Fire Emblem as one of three boss Mirages. He fights alongside Ogma and Palla.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Edit

Jagen appears as a collectible Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using his artwork from the original TCG.

EtymologyEdit

"Jagen" means "to hunt" in German.

Trivia Edit

  • During the production of the original Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Jagen was originally intended to be killed during the storyline, to provide a tragic coming of age moment where Marth would be forced to face the fact that he lost the adult he relied on. This sequence was scrapped from the final game and storyline, likely due to technical constraints or the inconvenience of removing a unit from the player's use.
