“It is my charge. It is my hope. Sir Orson... Prepare yourself.”
—Seth, before fighting Orson in The Sacred Stones

Seth is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a calm, brave, and clever soldier of Renais who harbors feelings for Eirika. He is better known as the Silver Knight.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Seth is General of the Knights of Renais, the elite cavalry force of the Renais Kingdom. Following the brutal invasion by the overwhelming forces of the Grado Empire, he, on Fado's orders, flees from the country in order to protect Princess Eirika, by conducting her to safety at the Kingdom of Frelia. He serves as protector and advisor to Eirika and Ephraim. He is also the man who Fado entrusted the secret of the bracelets to.

He is a very dedicated knight; the fact that he faces the fierce General Valter and continued to follow his orders shows how skilled and devoted he was to his country. Seth is also concerned with the situations of others and watches over the welfare of everyone.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Seth is best described as a 'duty comes first' man. He is stoic, honorable, polite, calm, and usually expressionless. Despite his seemingly cold outside, he is just and fair. He sometimes loosens up when talking to others, such as Franz and Natasha.

Seth lets his duties come before his feelings, as seen in his A Support with Eirika, where he has difficulties expressing his feelings to people that have a higher social status, showing a great deal of humility and honor.

Overall[edit | edit source]

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.

Seth is arguably among the strongest units in the entire series. His starting stats are noteworthy for being on par with those of a legitimately promoted cavalier, with the fairly competent Franz only matching him around level 15/1. Shockingly, despite his outstanding start, Seth possesses solid growths across the board, a grand total of 325%, with Luck as his only 'weakness'. Seth typically has lower HP and higher resistance to all of the other cavaliers, with his other stats averaging between those of Kyle and Forde.

Seth starts with an A rank in both swords and lances, allowing him early command of the weapon triangle, and his high 8 move allows him to charge into enemy lines and put his good stats to use. Seth also possesses the Anima affinity which, thanks to the enemy's generally abysmal evasion rates, is at its strongest in this title. He easily fosters Support with Eirika, and can also support Franz relatively easily.

All in all, Seth is among one of the more consistent units in the game. He starts out strong and can hold his own up to the end of the game. While other Cavaliers, particularly Franz, will eventually be able to match or even surpass him, this only materializes later in the game, if at all. Seth lacks the critical flaw (low long-term potential) that holds most early-game pre-promotes in check, and the enemies, even very late in the game, simply are not strong enough to catch up to him, so he will be able to consistently stay ahead of them for the duration of the campaign. He can practically solo the game - in fact, doing so is widely considered easier than using other units besides him.
