Levn (レヴィン, Revin?, translated Levin in fan translations) is the Prince of Silesia and the son of Queen Rahna and the late king of Silesia. He is a direct descendant of Sety, the founder of Silesia. Before Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu began, he ran away and went missing from home. During his travels, he met Sylvia, a dancer. He has the skills Critical and Continue. In Chapter 4, he goes back to Silesia Castle, and his mother Rahna gives him the legendary tome Holsety. His best suitor is arguably Ferry, who is confirmed as his wife in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. Only Ferry, Sylvia, and Tailto let him pass Holsety onto Celice's generation. After the battle of Barhara, Levn is killed by Manfroy (shown in the opening, after the game is finished several times), but Holsety resurrected him, at cost of several parts of his memories, which would explain his behavior in the second part of the game, where he serves as Celice's adviser. He is really protective of Yuria in the second half of the game.
In the first generation, Levn seemed to be very flirtatious. He is noticeably more mature in the second generation, as well as seemingly cold and distant from his family, such as when he was told of Ferry's death, he replied "Well, that's too bad". Whether this is due to him being older, his death and resurrection, or his possession by Holsety is unknown. The exception is if Levn was paired with Tailto. When Teeny told him how she suffered under Hilda's abuse, Levn ends up crying on her sad fate, but he quickly dismissed it as a mere 'sand in the eye'.
When recruiting Ferry, it is noted that he says he likes the freedom he has and he seems to hate responsibility, but when he says "You know who suffers then? The people" it may imply that he either doubts his ability to rule Silesia or possibly that he cares for the people that if he slips up the people will suffer- and he doesn't want that.
Despite the fact he doesn't have the Pursuit skill, Levn is very powerful. He specializes in Wind Magic, the best kind of magic that is the lightest, and combining that with his amazing speed due to his Holsety (Major) holy blood, Levn is a dodging machine. In Chapter 4, he gets Holsety if he enters Silesia Castle, and with this, he will get hit by like nothing, he will be activating Continue more often then not, and he'll hit extremely hard. Make sure he is paired with either Ferry, Tailto, or Sylvia to ensure that Holsety is passed down to someone who can use it.

edit New archetype: the Levn? I've noticed there's often a character posing as a simple traveler who joins early or mid-game, and is later revealed to be royalty, or otherwise of plot-critical heritage. Commonly, but not neccesarily, a bard.
Levn (FE4) Elphin (FE6) Nils and Ninian (FE7) Joshua (FE8) L'arachel (FE8) Kurth (FE10) Would this qualify as an archetype?
