“My hometown? Well... It was just an ordinary village. We were poor... The reason I came all the way out to the city was to make money to feed my younger brothers...”
—Ogier to Lilina in a support conversation

Ogier is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is a Mercenary from Lycia hired by Ostia. He can be promoted to a Hero during the game, depending on the player’s preferences.


Ogier joins a band of Ostian soldiers in order to pay for his impoverished family’s meals. However, because his physique and ability was incompatible with being part of the heavy knights, he instead chose the path of a mercenary. He joins Roy's party alongside Gwendolyn and Barthe, aiming to save Lilina and defeat Leygance in order to hand the Ostian throne to its rightful owner.

After the war with Bern, he traveled the world as a mercenary.


A somewhat reserved person, Ogier often comes off as shy and respectful to others, considering them to be of higher status than himself as he came from a dirt poor family, though Bors comments that while that sort of mundane reason to fight is usually looked down upon, it was still also a legitimate reason to fight.

Ogier is also greatly motivated to train himself in order to protect everyone else, as he and Gwendolyn train to become stronger than the other in their supports as they work tirelessly to bring an end to the war.

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.

Ogier is essentially a weaker version of Dieck due to his later join time and far inferior base stats. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since Dieck is one of the strongest early game units. However, Ogier's growths are better. His HP and Skill are worse than Dieck's, but they're still well above average, but his Speed and Luck are much higher. Ogier does suffer from lower constitution, but he suffers little trouble from wielding most swords barring the Steel Blade. Overall, Ogier is harder to train than Dieck, but due to his join time being just before the Western Isles, he can be brought up to speed with relative ease. However, he does compete with Rutger and Dieck for the Hero Crest, so they might be prefered compared to Ogier.

Character Ending

Ogier - The Little Hero (小さな『勇者』 Chiisana “Yūsha”)
"Ogier continued to travel around the world as a mercenary, and his name gradually spread across the continent as a great warrior. Even in his fame, he kept the utmost respect for his comrades in the war, saying that he never would have gotten as far as he did without their help."
