“We must put an end to this conflict... We must defend those who cannot defend themselves...”
—Perceval to Cecilia in a support conversation in The Binding Blade
He is forced to fight for Bern when Etrurian deserters capture King Mordred and force him to switch alliances. Despite his actions, he remains extremely loyal to Prince Mildain and King Mordred of Etruria. Upon seeing Elffin, he is shocked to discover that Prince Mildain is alive and well and chooses to abandon the corrupt leaders of the Bern military, joining the Lycian League for the good of Etruria. He can also be recruited with Larum, since she has proof that Prince Mildain is alive.
Description: The Knight General of Etruria. An imposing man of great potential.

*Chapter 15 only
- See also: Perceval/Supports
Perceval has very good base stats for his level. In Hard Mode, his bases get quite the boost, having stats Alen and Lance will not reach for a while. All of his stats will be very good, including his Resistance. Noticeably, he has some of the highest bases in HP, Strength, Skill, and Speed in the game. He also has decent growths in his already high HP and Speed stats. And to top it all off he is in one of the best classes and has an A rank in Lances and Swords and a C rank in Axes.This allows Perceval to use a large variety of weapons, and he could easily use the Durandal, Maltet, and/or Armads in a short amount of time. It is heavily recommened to recruit Perceval on Chapter 15, otherwise he will not get his Hard Mode boost. Chapter 14 is a desert chapter, so he would not be too useful there anyway.
Perceval has many supports that can boost his accuracy, avoid, and critical, fixing his somewhat average Skill and Luck. His supports with Klein, Cecilia, Elffin, and Douglas are noticeably fast, although Cecilia may be the only one who can keep up with him. Overall, Perceval is a solid unit, with his only weak points being his somewhat late join time and inability to fly. He can easily fill in for any Paladin and will most likely do their job better as well. His sword and lance rank are something Lance and Alan won't get unless you grind swords, and his potential for and S rank in axes is something any other paladin won't reach without grinding in bulk
