“I see. Lana, we need to do our best out here for mother and our missing father. Someday we'll be able to return with mother to her hometown of Jungby.”

Lester is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the son of Edain and the older brother of Lana. He and his sister were initially living in Isaach, but later decide to assist in Seliph's liberation army. Lester fights with a bow, which is typical of characters from House Jungby. His substitute character is Deimne.

Story Edit


Lester is responsible and cool-headed, and cares very much for his friends, especially so for Lana. While many of his lines are somewhat generic, he will reveal a slightly more playful side if he falls in love wih his cousin Patty, as he teases her about her insecurities.

If you choose a pairing that is not in Lester's favor, he may end up being terrible for quite a while, especially if his father was not a bow user. (In contrast with his sister Lana, who will always be a decent staff user and support unit.) The only fathers that allow him to obtain the Hero Bow that he badly needs to counter this are either Midir or Jamke: these two possible fathers will pass down several advantages to Lester, with Midir allowing him to inherit the Pursuit skill and Jamke blessing him with solid and better growth rates.

It is thus highly recommended to pair Edain with either Midir or Jamke in order to ensure Lester's competency for the tough skirmishes fought in Generation 2. However, if his father is Jamke, ensure that Jamke attains the Pursuit and/or Skill Rings before the end of Generation 1. By doing so, Lester will be able to iron out some of the weaknesses that he inherits from his father (mainly, the lack of the Pursuit skill) and achieve his full potential.


In Chapter 6, Lester may speak to Lana, and she will gain one point of luck.

In Chapter 10, if neither Lester nor Patty has a lover, he may speak to her, and she will gain three points of HP and 100 love points with him.

In the Final Chapter, if Patty and Lester are lovers, she can speak to him, and he will gain three points of HP and three points of speed.

Love GrowthsEdit

Original characters and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.
