Saber is the first recruitable [[Mercenary]] available on Celica's route. He is also the first physical unit that Celica acquires, giving him an important role in the early game as one of the strongest and most durable fighter in Celica's army until the player recruits [[Valbar]] and [[Kamui]]. In the long term, his growth rates are very unusual for a mercenary, as he has notably high HP and defense growths, with mediocre skill and speed and only average strength. As Gaiden's promotion system lets your units jump straight into next class' base stats, this will not trouble him much as his promotions to [[Hero (class)|Myrmidon]] and [[Dread Fighter]] will compensate for his low speed and skill growths with their high speed and skill bases. His high defensive growths will also make him one of the more durable members of Celica's team. Overall, his good stats, powerful class, and his great availability mean he will have little difficulty reaching his promotion thresholds before any other mercenaries in Celica's team, making him the earliest Myrmidon and Dread Fighter on her team.

Saber's growths have been improved significantly, having much better growths in the 3DS remake than in the original NES game. Like in the original, Saber is the first recruitable melee unit in Celica's route, and with his solid HP and defense growth rates, he can, with a couple of levels, quickly become an important defensive unit early in the game. However, due to his improved growths in this game, when more melee characters are recruited, Saber's growths are high enough that he can stand out easier, especially since he can be a couple of levels higher by the time the next Mercenary, Kamui, is recruited.

*In Saber's ending, he marries a woman whose name is not mentioned. In Katsuyuki Ozaki's illustration, it is said that [[Genny]] develops feelings for him at some point, due to her fondness of older men. In Genny's ending, it is stated that she marries a man no one would expect, hinting at the possibility of Genny being that unnamed woman whom Saber marries. However, no further evidence to support this pairing exists and their endings do not change if the other is killed, casting doubt on this theory.

*His in-game portrait depicts him in a stance very similar to the battle models of [[Myrmidon|Myrmidons]] and [[Swordmaster|Swordmasters]] in ''[[Fire Emblem Awakening|Awakening]]'' and ''[[Fire Emblem Fates|Fates]]'', though his in-game model does not reflect this.

**This is a actual Medieval swordfighting stance called an Ox Guard.
