“Our territory may be small, but our knights are among the bravest!”
—Kent to Heath in a support conversation

Kent is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is a knight of Caelin, one of the cantons of the Lycian League in Fire Emblem. He and his friend Sain were sent by the marquess to find his granddaughter for him on the plains of Sacae.


Lyn's Story

Trained as a knight of Caelin along with his friend Sain by General Eagler, the knight-commander of Caelin, the pair are deployed to Sacae on a mission from the Marquess of Caelin, Lord Hausen, to locate and bring back his granddaughter, Lyndis. While looking for information in Bulgar, the largest city in Sacae, the two knights have a chance meeting with Lyndis and the player. They escort her back to Caelin and help her defeat her granduncle Lundgren, who had been poisoning her grandfather in an attempt to seize the throne of Caelin. In the aftermath of the attempted usurping, Kent is promoted to knight-commander of Caelin.

Eliwood and Hector's Story

Kent is present during the siege of Caelin by Laus' forces. One of the few retainers who flee Castle Caelin with Lyn to plan an assault, Kent eventually joins up with Eliwood and Hector's army and succeeds in reclaiming the castle.

Following the successful retaking of Castle Caelin, Kent joins Lyn in her decision to accompany Eliwood and Hector on their journey. At the end of this journey, Kent stepped up to the role of steward to Ostia when Caelin's rule is ceded to it. Depending on his supports, Kent can be wed to Lyn, Fiora or Farina.


Kent is a stern, uptight knight who always follows the rules. Harbouring a strict no-nonsense attitude, he is known to keep Sain's flirtatious tendencies in check, forcing the latter to regain focus of the missions and tasks they are to perform at hand. He is also staunchly loyal to his country, dedicated to safeguarding both its sovereignty and its peace.

Despite Kent's dedication as a knight, he is ultimately human, with a support conversation shared with Sain revealing that he has a crush on Lyn. If the player so chooses to raise his support rank with Lyn, the pair will wed at the end of the game.

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.

Kent's selling points are his high Skill and Speed, which allow him to have an easier time doubling opponents. He also has higher defensive stats than Sain, with 5% more HP, Defense, and Resistance growths, even though his defense base is lower. However, his Luck stat is rather low, and his Strength growth rate is rather inconsistent, which can give him issues with enemies wielding Killer weapons, as well as issues finishing off opponents. However, Kent possesses an Anima affinity, and can support either Sain or Fiora, two units with similar movement that can increase Kent's Strength and Critical Evade.

Compared to Kent's counterpart, Sain, Kent possesses higher Skill and Speed, whereas Sain has higher Luck and a significantly higher growth rate in Strength. Although speed is not much needed in FE7 due to enemies' low AS, it is reccomended you use both since a cavalier has high movement and good rescuing capabilities.
