“...Nay, I'll turn no blade of mine on a woman. If you're willing to pay for my services with your life, then consider yourself the high bidder. My sword is yours.”
—Navarre, when Caeda asks him to join Marth's cause in Shadow Dragon.

Navarre (Nabarl in the European version of Shadow Dragon, Nabaaru in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Navarl in the anime) is a character from the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem. A stoic mercenary who is also known by the alias "Crimson Fencer", Navarre is infamous for the dual-wielding fighting style that he employs with the eastern Killing Edge, alongside his inclination to work with bandits for unknown reasons.

Navarre appears as a Sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

A mercenary who is in his mid-twenties during the course of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Mystery of the Emblem, Navarre constantly travels around the continent of Archanea in search of an unnamed person. According to the designer's notes released for Mystery of the Emblem, this furtive search of his could possibly account for his inclination to remain silent when regarding young women in danger.

Archanea Saga[edit | edit source]

Shortly after the palace of Archanea falls to Dolhr, Navarre, while strolling through the streets of the palace town in Episode 3, stumbles upon Lena harassed by a lecherous bandit. After succeeding in chasing off the bandit by threatening him, Navarre turns to depart after quietly urging Lena to take care of herself. He is, however, halted by Lena, who persuades him to aid her and Rickard in their quest to raid the palace and obtain its riches for the sake of easing the suffering of the poor. Moved by her words, he agrees to lend his blade to her cause.

Rickard later returns with Castor, an injured Hunter whom he had earlier saved, in tow. After being briefly introduced to the two, Navarre warns them of his low tolerance for liars, threatening to slice off their tongues if he deems them guilty. The group of four then proceeds to rendezvous in a local inn, where they discuss the details of their plan to break into the palace.

The plan is executed the next morning, and while in the midst of looting the palace, the group chances upon Dice and Malice, a father-daughter treasure hunter pair who agree to aid them in exchange for a share of their spoils. As the group attempts to sneak back out of the palace, they are intercepted by General Camus. Princess Nyna of Archanea intercepts Camus in the nick of time, where she persuades him to grant Lena and her allies reprieve, just as he had done for her when he led the invasion of Archanea Palace in Episode 1. After formally granting the group permission to keep the looted treasures and distribute them to the needy, Nyna then urges Camus to lead the group to safety. Shortly after he is freed, Navarre silently departs from the group, later lending his elite services to the Soothsires.

War of Shadows[edit | edit source]

Navarre makes his debut in Chapter 3 of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, where he is assigned the task of chasing after Julian and Lena after they escape from the Soothsire stronghold located within the domains of the Samsooth Mountains. While in the midst of carrying out his mission, Navarre is interrupted by Caeda, who pleads with him to either defect to Marth's army or turn his blade against her. Due to his personal conviction to not harm women or children whom he encounters, he relents and agrees to aid Caeda's cause. He then helps Marth to bring the War of Shadows to an end, before vanishing without a trace. It is said that many impostors emerge in the wake of the war, attempting to profit from Navarre's reputation.

Some time after the conclusion of the war, upon learning that Caeda is engaged to Marth, several Talysian clans rise up in revolt, embroiling the country in a civil war. The events of Downloadable Episode 3 of New Mystery of the Emblem are then incited, where Navarre, desiring to settle a score with Ogma, allies himself with a group of bandits. In the midst of dueling with Ogma, Navarre is once again interrupted by Caeda, who swoops into the scene and puts an end to the fight, thereafter persuading him to aid her in her cause of defeating the bandits in the immediate vicinity. Upholding his policy of not harming women and children yet again, Navarre relents, muttering that neither he nor Ogma is capable of turning her down. After the battle concludes, Navarre vanishes without saying a word to his comrades.

War of Heroes[edit | edit source]

Navarre returns in Chapter 7 of Book 2 of Mystery of the Emblem, where it is apparent that he has once again resorted to banditry, this time lending his blade to Dahl's band of thieves, who are responsible for looting the Fane of Raman. Upon encountering the dancer Phina, however, he quickly decides to betray them, assuming the role of her bodyguard. Marth's army soon catches up with the pair, and Navarre will enlist in its ranks once again, helping it to end the War of Heroes. He vanishes thereafter, and against his wishes, Phina makes the decision to tag along.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Cold, calm and aloof, Navarre is depicted as the stereotypical lone wolf, where he has the tendency to work alone and entirely out of his own personal motivations. He has described himself as a killer, only utilizing his skills to improve his fighting abilities and is constantly seeking out stronger swordsmen on his quest for power. Thus he is not bound to any nation or cause except to the ones who will give him the biggest pay or will offer him the biggest challenge. He has not, however, completely abandoned his humanity, a fact that is evidenced through his resolve to not reign harm upon both women and children and instead seek to protect them. His actions in all the games that he appears in prove as much; In Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, he defects to Marth's army on Caeda's behest due to not wanting to harm her; in Book 2 of Mystery of the Emblem, he defects from Dahl's thief band to protect Phina; in Archanea Saga, he protects Lena from a bandit and lends his blade to her cause. In the end, Navarre does not fight for personal glory, merely to hone his skill with the blade, but will fight for what is right in situations.

Navarre is not one to display his emotions very readily, as his interactions with various characters prove; his speech is one that comprises of one-liners and short phrases, distinctly failing to betray any feelings that he may be experiencing when conversing with others. His base conversations with Phina in New Mystery of the Emblem, for one, sees him repeatedly rejecting her advances, using harsh, firm words in an attempt to dissuade her from continuing to hound him.

Navarre is not completely devoid of the ability to express his emotions, however; through his base conversations with Kris in New Mystery of the Emblem, for instance, while he does start out being rather inhospitable to them, he eventually relents and chuckles in response to their earnestness in attempting to convince him to walk the path of honesty. Yet another instance illustrating this takes place in Episode 3 of Archanea Saga, where Rickard teases Navarre by establishing that he has a soft spot for women with pleasing countenances, to which Navarre, visibly flustered, stutters in response.

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.

Navarre is a viable early-game unit, with his high Speed and Weapon Level, along with his access to swords, making him competent at base level. He will likely be among the few characters able to wield the Kill Sword. He also has rather high growth rates, meaning his effectiveness at handling enemies will only improve from his base level. Mercenary is a decent class, given its good weapon type and ability to promote, so it does not hold back Navarre much, even if he may suffer somewhat next to the Cavaliers. His only real weak point is that early on, his Strength will be mediocre, but his high growth will solve that before long. Navarre is often compared to his fellow Mercenary Ogma; Ogma has the better base stats while Navarre has the better growth rates, which roughly translates to Ogma having a slight lead at base level while Navarre has a slight lead in the lategame. Nonetheless, given that both are usable at base and both tend to hit their stat caps if leveled, it makes little difference which one the player favors.

Navarre's Book One Mystery incarnation is largely the same as his NES incarnation, while his Book Two version is a significant step up. Navarre joins at a rather high base level with the stats to match, making him a strong mid-game combat unit that is not hampered in the least by indoor maps. Most of his advantages remain intact, and the significantly higher power of Book Two's enemies make Navarre's edge in stats quite helpful. He is not the best character in the game, but as before, he is rather helpful upon joining and stays effective for the entire campaign.

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.

Navarre has lost much of his original luster in Shadow Dragon, owing to the game design having significantly changed around him. The main culprit is the Weapon Triangle, which combines very poorly with Shadow Dragon's lance-focused map design for a swordlocked character like Navarre. The Scarlet Swordsman will be fighting on unfavorable terms constantly outside of the first few chapters, nullifying his advantage of high sword rank. His low Strength has also become a significant issue, as not only have his growths taken some hits, reducing his offensive potential, but his base remains very poor--and, significantly, he actually loses a point of Speed when using his signature Killing Edge at base level. In fact, he can actually be doubled by Hyman when wielding it. Worse, Navarre's main stated advantage of high Speed is actually less true than one would think; in fact, Navarre's Speed owes entirely to his base class of Myrmidon, with his actual Speed base being 0. Any character reclassed to Myrmidon can match Navarre's Speed, and a Navarre reclassed to something like Cavalier will be downright sluggish at base. Ogma is superior as an early swordsman due to his better bases and equal sword rank, and by the time Navarre has caught up to Ogma, the player likely will not want to deploy a swordsman at all. Navarre is usable enough at fighting the few remaining early axe enemies, but offers few real advantages past that point.

The significant buffs to Navarre's signature Myrmidon class and significantly more diverse enemy layouts, along with his higher base stats from Mystery, allow the New Mystery version of Navarre to reclaim much of his old glory. He is usable at base level, and stays usable for most of the game, with his base promoted class of Swordmaster being seen as a great pick overall. Navarre's only real weakness is that he doesn't have many standout traits; C-rank swords is an easy benchmark for anyone able to become a Myrmidon (Luke can achieve it at base), and his stats are not particularly amazing on the whole.

Some light on Navarre's past is shed in the anime adaptation. A scene featuring him tormented by a nightmare that sees a woman being killed is enacted in Episode 2. It is highly likely that Navarre's policy on not killing women and children stems from this memory. Throughout the anime adaptation, Navarre appears to display few to no emotions.

Manga[edit | edit source]

In Volume 8 of the manga adaptation, it is revealed that Navarre was orphaned when he was a child, later becoming a swordsman after the church master who raised him was killed by bandits. Navarre would come to avenge this church master by personally slaying the bandits responsible for his death in return.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name "Navarre" is derived from the name of the Biblical character Nabal, meaning "foolish", "senseless", or figuratively "shamelessly improprietous." Nabal was the Calebite who was executed by God for defying King David.

Navarre is an autonomous community in Spain. Also, Naverre sounds similar to Javert, an antagonist in Victor Hugo's novel "Les Miserables", possibly referencing his relationship with Ogma, who might pursue him because he is a criminal.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Navarre's original appearances in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Mystery of the Emblem, his starting class is "Mercenary." His class concept was later formalized into the Myrmidon class, which became his new starting class beginning with the remake Shadow Dragon.
    • The only exception to this rule is Warriors where Navarre returns to his original role as a Mercenary.
  • Navarre's English name in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is "Nabaaru." It is the only official instance in which this spelling is used.
  • In Fire Emblem Heroes, Navarre's Grand Hero Battle is based on a portion of Shadow Dragon Chapter 3
  • Navarre's right arm in Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE resembles to the arms of the fighters from ARMS, another game franchise made by Nintendo.
  • Navarre shares his Japanese voice actor, Takehito Koyasu (one of the known recurring voice actors in the series) with Awakening's Lon'qu and Validar, Fates' Niles, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's Saber, and Three Houses' Seteth.
    • Incidentally, along with Marth's Japanese voice actor, Hikaru Midorikawa, he likewise has reprised the role of the character in almost every game he appears in since the OVA, except Fire Emblem: Archanea Saga.
  • Despite Navarre stating that he will not attack a woman, he can attack Lena as an enemy without a problem in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Mystery of the Emblem, and Shadow Dragon. This is due to there being no code that stops Navarre from attacking female units.
