“Back, evildoer! Return to whatever dark hole of naughtiness you crawled out of!”
—Percy in his paralogue.

Percy is a playable child character in Fire Emblem Fates. He is the son of Arthur.

Profile[]

Percy is the son of Arthur. Like the other children of Fates, he was placed in the Deeprealms to protect him from the war. Arthur did not want Percy to be lonely in his Deeprealm so he found him a wyvern to keep him company, who Percy named him Ace.

In his Paralogue, fed up with waiting for his father, Percy decides to disobey his father's order to stay in his Deeprealm and ride out of it on Ace, his wyvern. However, Arthur had come to his Deeprealm to visit his son but Percy is upset that he has not visited in a while. Percy labels him a villain and calls a group of mercenaries to take him out. Arthur attempts to persuade them that Percy is his son, but they do not believe him because he made Percy cry and apparently resembles Gazak. Though Arthur continues to try and convince them of his identity, Percy comes in and coldly calls him Gazak, causing the mercenaries to attack him.

After either scaring away or defeating all the mercenaries, Percy has a heart-to-heart with his father, where Arthur apologizes for not visiting more often. Arthur invites Percy to be his sidekick or perhaps allow him to be his sidekick. Though confused if that meant that Arthur would be staying in his Deeprealm, Arthur clarifies by allowing Percy to join the army if he wants to, an offer he readily accepts. Unfortunately, Ace nearly bites Arthur until Percy explains that he is now happy to be a duo of great justice with his father.

After the war, Percy joins the Nohrian army and is placed in charge of a wyvern squad. If he marries Female Corrin in Revelation if she is not his mother, he will become the king of Valla.

Personality[]

Percy inherited his father's heroic spirit and is eager to be his father's "Ally of Justice." He looks forward to any opportunity to work along side him and is protective of his mother, wanting to become strong enough to protect her. Deep down, he is still young, wincing and complaining about pain when his mother tends to his cuts, but he will put on a brave face to show her that he can handle himself. He also is an eager eater, looking forward to his mother's cooking the most. Like Arthur, Percy is willing to help out anyone in need and often looks for opportunities to assist the common citizen.

Unlike his father who is plagued with abnormally bad luck, Percy is blessed with astronomically good luck. In his support with his mother, Percy falls off of a cliff known to kill people, only to walk away with only a minor cut to his knee, a testament to his natural-born luck. Even in a simple race such as with Sophie, many sudden external circumstances allow Percy to win. As a result, he dislikes his superior luck as it removes any need for him to work hard to be successful. Inversely, this also makes him adore his father more as he admires Arthur's perseverance to help others despite his unfortunate circumstances.

He shares a strong bond with his wyvern Ace, whom Arthur found to keep him company when he did not have the time to visit him.

Base Class[]

Percy is the third Wyvern Rider recruited in Fates, and while he faces stiff competition from Camilla and Beruka, he still has enough to set himself apart from them, and justify his use. Unlike his father, Percy has very high Luck growths, and combined with his high Skill means he will have much less of an issue using the often inaccurate axes than other units. Percy starts out as a Wyvern Rider, with both of its skills already learnt. Strength +2 gives him a small boost in the beginning, but will likely fall off later. Lunge can be useful to help set up an enemy.

Wyvern Rider can promote to either Wyvern Lord or Malig Knight. If an Offspring Seal is provided, it is recommended to promote him to Wyvern Lord first, so he will be comfortable in any lance-using classes if reclassed into one. The player can then reclass into a Malig Knight after learning all of Wyvern Lord's skills. From Wyvern Lord, the most notable skill Percy can learn is Swordbreaker to help him against sword-using enemies. From Malig Knight, he can learn Savage Blow to damage enemies near him and Trample to deal more damage against unmounted enemies.

Secondary Class[]

Percy has Fighter as his secondary. The class uses Axes, which he is naturally proficient in, so he will have no problems performing in this class. HP +5 is a useful skill to help him take hits better. Gamble helps him score critical hits more easily, although it will likely fall off later in favor of more reliable skills. Fighter promotes to either Berserker or Hero. The former sacrifices the durability of Wyvern Lord and Malig Knight for Speed and raw power. This class also lets him use the S Rank Axe Aurgelmir. Due to his high Skill and Luck, he'll face fewer issues hitting with axes than Berserkers like his father or Charlotte. Berserker offers Rally Strength, which isn't too useful for Percy as he's better off in an offensive role, and Axefaire, an extremely useful skill for him as all of his base classes use Axes. Hero trades some of the speed and power of Berserker for more bulk. Hero offers Sol, which recovers HP, helping Percy survive for longer. He should trigger it often with his high Skill. It also offers Axebreaker, which can help him take down Axe users.

Maternal Inheritance and Tertiary Class[]

  • Female Corrin: Corrin passes down Nohr Prince, which provides Percy the use of swords and dragonstones. Nobility can help him gain extra experience if he is falling behind on levels and the offensive skill Dragon Fang, which can allow Percy deal extra damage to his enemies. Nohr Noble is available for him on Conquest and Revelation. As a Nohr Noble, he can get Draconic Hex to reduce his foes' stats by 4 and Nohrian Trust to use his supporting ally's skills in an Attack Stance or a Guard Stance. Hoshido Noble is only available in Revelation. This class can provide him Dragon Ward to reduce an adjacent ally's taken damage by half and Hoshidan Unity to increase his skills' activation rates by 10%.
  • Azura: Azura passes down Pegasus Knight, giving him good modifiers in both Skill (+5) and Speed (+4). This class and its promotions use Lances, which he is also able to use due to his Wyvern Lord base having access to Lances. From this class, Percy can learn Darting Blow for a temporary Speed increase to help compensate for the somewhat slow Nohrian classes. Camaraderie gives him some self-recovery when he is near an ally. Its promotions entail Falcon Knight and Kinshi Knight. Falcon Knight's Warding Blow helps him against magical units which can exploit his weakness to magical attacks whenever he starts a battle with a magic user. Kinshi Knight's Air Superiority allows him to battle other flying units effectively. Amaterasu can be a helpful skill as this can heal 20% of his allies health within a two-square radius.
  • Camilla/Nyx: Camilla and Nyx both pass down Dark Mage, but unfortunately, this cannot provide him much due to his poor Magic growth. However, Percy can get Heartseeker so he can reduce an adjacent foe's avoidance by 20, but Malefic Aura will not help much. When promoted to Dark Knight, he can get Seal Magic to lower magic-wielding foes' magic by 6 and Lifetaker to recover his health after he kills an enemy. Sorcerer can provide Vengeance to deal extra damage depending on how low Percy's HP is. Bowbreaker is helpful because it can help him easily avoid and defeat bow-wielding foes if he is in a flying-based class.
  • Beruka: Beruka offers him the greatest Skill modifier of +6, along with a Defense modifier of +4. As Percy has Beruka's primary class (Wyvern Rider) as his starting class and Arthur's secondary class (Fighter) as his secondary, he gets Hoshido's interpretation of fliers; Pegasus Knight (go to Azura's section above).
  • Effie: Effie passes down Knight. Along with Charlotte and Kagero, she provides him with the highest Strength modifier of +5. Knight gives Percy an increase in his Defense, but has no skill worth noting later on. Its promotions entail General and Great Knight. Percy should be comfortable in these classes as both of them use Axes and Lances. From General, he can learn Pavise to shave damage off physical attacks. From Great Knight, he can learn another offensive skill, Luna, and Armored Blow to increase his defense greatly when attacking.
  • Selena: Selena passes down Mercenary. As Percy's secondary is Fighter, he will learn Mercenarys' skills, Strong Riposte and Good Fortune. Strong Riposte gives him some extra power when counterattacking and Good Fortune goes well with his high luck. As he already has access to Hero from Fighter, the new class he has access to is Bow Knight. The most notable skill in this class is Shurikenbreaker to allow him to dodge shurikens/daggers more effectively, given that axes are strong against them.
  • Mozu: Mozu passes down Villager. From this class, Percy can learn Aptitude to help increase his overall growths, and Underdog to deal with any high-leveled enemies. Its promotions entail Master of Arms and Merchant. From Master of Arms, he can learn Seal Strength to weaken Strength-intense units such as Berserkers and Life and Death for extra damage at the cost of lower Defense. From Merchant, Percy can learn Profiteer to obtain gold bars, which should work well with his good luck. Spendthrift can be combined with Life and Death to deal even more damage and cancel out the lowered defense that Life and Death has.
  • Peri: Peri passes down Cavalier, and a decent increase in most of his stats. From this class, Percy can learn Elbow Room to deal extra damage out in the open and Shelter to give allied units some cover. Its promotions entail Paladin and Great Knight. Percy should be comfortable in these classes given their access to Axes and Lances, which he had access to in his Wyvern Lord base. From Paladin, he can learn Defender for a temporary boost when paired up with an allied unit and Aegis, which compliments his high skill. Refer to Effie's section above for Great Knight.
  • Felicia/Charlotte/Elise: Felicia, Charlotte, and Elise all pass down Troubadour. This class does not suit Percy, as his Magic is far too low to be an effective healer, but will let him aquire good skills. Butler offers Tomebreaker, a very useful skill to take down magic users. Strategist offers Inspiration, which can stack nicely with his personal skill. In Revelation, Charlotte can Friendship Seal with Rinkah and pass down Death Blow - as a Berserker, Percy will be able to achieve Critical Hits with almost every strike with a weapon like the Killer Axe or Great Club.
  • Setsuna: Setsuna passes down the Archer line. Quick Draw can help Percy inflict extra damage on his turn. Sniper offers Certain Blow, which nullifies the low accuracy of most axes. However, due to Percy's high Skill and Luck growths, this skill is less useful on him. Bowfaire should overall be ignored, as there is no class that uses axes and bows. For Kinshi Knight's skills, see Azura's section above.
  • Kagero: Kagero passes down Ninja. Locktouch can allow Percy to open chests and doors without the use of keys and Poison Strike to reduce the foes' HP if he had not defeated them after engaging combat. Master Ninja offers him Lethality to instantly kill enemies with one hit. Shurikenfaire can increase the damage he deals if he is wielding a shuriken/dagger, should the player have him in a shuriken-wielding class. Mechanist can provide him Golembane, which is rather useless to due a lack of Golems within Fates, and Replicate, which can allow him to create a replica of himself.

Partner Class[]

  • Female Corrin/Female Kana: Corrin and Kana provide him with their secondary class, which can depend on the player's choice. Percy can get Spear Fighter and/or Oni Savage, two classes that he cannot regularly access. Oni Savage can provide him Seal Resistance to lower an enemy's Resistance, which can help Percy's magic-wielding allies, and Shove can allow him to push an ally in or out of an enemy's range. When promoted to Oni Chieftain, he can get Death Blow (refer to Charlotte's section above) and Counter to punish melee attackers. Blacksmith can provide Salvage Blow so Percy can farm for iron Hoshidan weapons, which can be helpful for skirmishes and to his good luck. Lancebreaker can help him avoid and take down any lance-wielding foes easily. Spear Fighter can provide Seal Defense to reduce an enemy's defense and Swap to switch places with an adjacent ally in or out of an enemy's range. Spear Master provides Seal Speed to reduce an enemy's Speed, also preventing them from doubling up on him. Lancefaire can be helpful to him as Wyvern Lord also provides lances. Basara provides the offensive skill Rend Heaven to deal half of the enemy's Strength as extra damage. Quixotic can increase his skill activation/hit rate by 15%/30%, but it can be a gamble as it also increases the foe's skill activation/hit rare as well.
  • Nina: Nina provides him with Outlaw, and its promotions, Bow Knight and Adventurer. For Locktouch, refer to Kagero's section above. Movement +1 can provide Percy an extra movement around the map by 1. For Bow Knight, refer to Selena's section above. When promoted to Adventurer, he can get Lucky Seven to increase his hit rate and avoidance for seven turns and Pass to go past enemy units, should he be in dangerous situations.
  • Mitama: Mitama provides him with Monk and its promotions, Onmyoji and Great Master. From this class, Percy can get Miracle to survive any fatal hits, which can be helpful due to his good Luck and Rally Luck to grant Luck +8 to his allies. Onmyoji will not help Percy much, but Great Master can. Great Master provides Renewal to recover his heath at the start of each turn and Countermagic to punish magic-wielding enemies.
  • Rhajat: Rhajat provides him with Diviner, which can't help him due to poor Magic growth. However, Future Sight can help Percy gain experience if falling behind, which can be helpful due to his good luck. For Basara, refer to Corrin/Kana's section above.
  • Sophie: Sophie will provide him with Cavalier. Refer to Peri's section above.
  • Velouria: This pairing will give no new classes to Percy since Velouria normally bestows Fighter to her partners and he already has access through his father (Though she'll still get Wyvern Knight from Percy). If the player still goes for it, they'll need to make according plans to mitigate this inconvenient (like a Buddy Support or some Inheritance-related reclasses).

Friendship Class[]

  • Male Kana: Like Female Corrin and Female Kana, Male Kana provides him with his secondary class - which can allow Percy to get classes that he'd never be able to access otherwise. Refer to Corrin/Kana's section above to see good options.
  • Hisame: Hisame is exclusive to Revelation and provides him with Samurai. With this class, Percy can learn Duelist's Blow to increase his avoidance whenever he initiates combat. Vantage can allow him to strike first if his health is low and when the enemy initiates combat. Swordmaster provides him Astra, an offensive skill that can allow him to deal five hits to the enemy. Swordfaire can increase the damage he deals if he is using a sword, should the player have him in a sword-wielding class. For Master of Arms, refer to Mozu's section above.
  • Dwyer: Dwyer provides him with Troubadour. Refer to Charlotte/Elise/Felicia's section above.
  • Ignatius: Ignatius provides him with Knight. Refer to Effie's section above.
