“Ofttimes when I am caught in the gazes of our people, I am struck with fear. Their eyes are so heavy with expectation, and there are so many of them... I feel I must be nothing less than perfect in their eyes. And this vexes me. ”
—Siegbert speaking to his father

Siegbert (ジークベルト Jīkuberuto) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Fates. He is voiced by Kengo Kawanishi in the Japanese version.


Siegbert is the son of Xander and the cousin of Forrest. Like the other children of Fates, Siegbert was placed in the Deeprealms to keep him safe from the war. Siegbert became particularly close to his father and would spend his days learning all he could from swordsmanship to penmanship in an attempt to impress his father whenever he would visit. He also would regularly receive news of his father's efforts in the war.

In his Paralogue, Xander pays his Deeprealm a visit. Although Siegbert is happy to see his father, Xander's visit is interrupted by invisible forces that have been invading his realm constantly as of late. Siegbert rushes off to battle the enemies as Xander follows close behind. Xander notices that they appear from the water pools around the forest which the invaders are coming from. After utilizing all Dragon Veins in the forest to stop the invasion and routing those already present, Xander notices that this is not the first time Siegbert's Deeprealm has been attacked and asks why he did not notify him. Siegbert tells Xander that he believed that by fighting off the invaders on his own, he could prove that he was worthy of being Xander's son. Xander is proud that Siegbert took on the responsibility to fight off the invaders without Xander having to teach him to do so. Xander asks that Siegbert be comfortable with telling him anything on his mind. Siegbert asks if he can join Xander's army, stating that he can now fight alongside him to help Nohr. Xander warns Siegbert that the enemies on the battlefield will be much more dangerous then the ones they had just dispatched, and allows him to stay in his Deeprealm if he wants to. Siegbert is unfazed by Xander's grim message and readily joins the army.

Heirs of Fate

After being defeated by some of the Hoshidan children, Siegbert and his group decide to stop and rest for a while. After persuasion by Soleil, Siegbert decides to enter another battle.

Elsewhere in a Deeprealm swamp, a group of Vallite soldiers decide to retreat and pursue Forrest's group. As his group is leaving, Forrest spots Siegbert, but hopes that he can fend off the soldiers. Siegbert thinks that he also saw Forrest, but due to uncertainty if his eyes were playing tricks on him, he decides to press on.

At the Great Wall of Suzanoh, Siegbert and his group fight the Vallites when Forrest's group arrives. The two work together to question the invaders and eventually defeat them in battle.

Reaching a standstill, Siegbert offers his assistance to Kana, whose Grim Yato reacts to his Siegfried and transforms into the Shadow Yato. When both Kanas turn into dragons, Siegbert and Forrest attempt to calm down the male one, but they are stopped when Shigure intervenes.

After they join forces, Siegbert and Shiro comment on the war. Siegbert is surprised when Shiro says that the Hoshidans won the war and Xander and Elise died, and shocks him in turn by mentioning that the Nohrians won and both Ryoma and Takumi died. This leads to both of them agreeing it is best to act separately.


He is kind, serious, straightforward, and a culturally refined elite. The stress of being Xander's son weighs heavily on him, and he frequently feels inadequate and useless in comparison. The weight of the expectations from not only others but himself scares him, and he tries very hard to exceed the expectations of both his father and the people of Nohr as a future king. He constantly compares himself to his father, believing him to be the end-all-be-all role model. However, his efforts are far from good for his mental health, as he berates himself and refuses to be seen as weak in the eyes of others. He regards having hobbies and things he enjoys outside of princely duties as weaknesses, and will hide these things from everyone but the ones he deeply trusts. He cares very much about the people around him, and will go out of his way to ensure they're doing well and are safe.

His birthday is on May 28 and he has the whitest teeth in the entire army.

Base Class Set

Siegbert starts off as a Cavalier, a class he is well suited to due to his balance of power and overall bulk. He also starts out with a C Rank in both Swords and Lances. On recruitment he will already have Elbow Room, a useful skill for the endgame in Fates due to the final chapters taking place indoors. Both of Cavalier's promotions offer useful skills for Siegbert to learn: Great Knight offers Luna, a solid attacking skill that helps in taking down bulkier enemies. It also offers Armored Blow, which can make Siegbert very difficult to bring down when he initiates the attack. Paladin offers Defender, a moderately useful skill in the early to mid game, although it falls off later. Aegis can help him shave off indirect damage, and can also help patch up his low resistance. Siegbert can do well in either of his base promotions, and it's largely up to player choice depending on whether you prefer the Great Knight's power and bulk or the Paladin's Speed and mobility.


Siegbert can reclass into the Wyvern Rider line. While he will have to start at E Rank for Axes, it still has some useful skills. Strength +2 can be useful at the beginning, but loses its effectiveness down the line. Lunge can help set enemies up for a kill, but again it will likely fall off later down the line. Wyvern Rider's promotions, Wyvern Lord and Malig Knight, offer more useful skills. Wyvern Lord offers Rally Defense to help Siegbert out in a support role, and Swordbreaker to help him combat Sword users. That class also lets him use his favored Lances again. Malig Knight offers Savage Blow, a great skill to wear down surrounding enemies as well as make any enemies he can't eliminate in one attack an easier target. Trample increases his damage output when facing unmounted enemies. In the Conquest route, this skill is particularly useful due to the scarcity of opposing mounted units.


Paternal Inheritance
  • Xander passes down both his starting and secondary classes to Siegbert, which is unfortunately Siegbert's biggest problem. While he isn't a bad unit in any way, unfortunately he faces stiff competition from his father, who offers the exact same base classes, but will be higher levelled, and has his signature Siegfried sword. Therefore, when deciding on Siegbert's mother, try to pick someone who can give him a unique edge over his father. Trample is the skill Xander could pass, should the player wish to place Siegbert in an offensive role. Xander could also pass Replicate by Friendship Sealing with Kaze, which will allow Siegbert to operate in 2 places at once. Sol or Shurikenbreaker from Laslow could be useful for recovery and taking out Ninjas, respectively. If playing Revelation, Xander can Friendship Seal with Ryoma and pass down Swordfaire which can help him deal more damage with Swords. With the right mother, Siegbert can either surpass his father or take on an entirely different role.
Maternal Inheritance
  • Female Avatar. The female Avatar has the unique selling point of passing Siegbert down skills that no one else can, most notably some Hoshido exclusive skills in the Conquest route. Some of the more notable ones include Swordfaire from the Swordmaster class, which he'll be able to use in 3 out of his final 5 classes (4 out of 6 in Revelation). Lancefaire from Spear Master is another useful skill for him, as he can use Lances as a Paladin, Great Knight or Wyvern Lord. The Avatar also passes down the Nohr Prince line. Siegbert can jump right into this class due to his naturally good Sword rank, and it offers many useful skills for him. Nohr Prince offers Nobility to help him gain experience faster and Dragon Fang, a more potent attacking skill than Luna, albeit one that won't trigger as often. From Nohr Noble, he can learn Draconic Hex which reduces his enemy's stats after each battle. He can combine this with his native Savage Blow (and possibly Poison Strike) to make sure that any unit he can't take out will be easy prey. Nohrian Trust is a very useful skill that can be applied offensively and defensively. While his low Magic growth will make damaging with Tomes tricky, he can still inflict good magical damage with Dragonstones. In Revelation, he can also promote to Hoshido Noble. While he won't be able to heal especially well with Staves, it still offers useful skills for him. Dragon Ward can help protect adjacent allies, while Hoshidan Unity boosts his chances to trigger Luna, Aegis, Dragon Fang and Dragon Ward.
  • Azura. Azura gives Siegbert the highest Speed of all of his potential mothers, second only to a +Speed Avatar. However, she drops his defence and resistance a little in exchange. Azura passes him the Sky Knight line, which Siegbert can jump right into due to his naturally good Lance rank. Darting Blow helps him double enemies more easily, and goes hand in han with his buffed Speed. Falcon Knight offers Rally Speed, which could help him out in a support role, and Warding Blow, which nullifies his low resistance when Siegbert attacks. Kinshi Knight offers Air Superiority, which can combine nicely with Trample to make Siegbert deadly against a wide assortment of enemies. Later on it offers Amaterasu, a useful aura skill which increases his support capabilities. Even the weakness to bows can be circumvented by having Xander Friendship Seal with Leo and passing down Bowbreaker from Sorcerer. Azura can also pass a unique skill from her Songstress class. Voice of Peace is probably the most useful, to help shield allies. It combos nicely with Amaterasu and his rally skills. Overall, this Siegbert will make for a versatile and powerful unit, able to both support his allies and dish out plenty of damage.
  • Mozu. Mozu offers Siegbert good modifiers in Strength, Luck and Defence, although his resistance takes a hit, Aegis can somewhat mitigate that. Mozu offers Siegbert the Villager class line. He only has to take one level in this line to learn Aptitude, which improves his growth rates, enabling him to quickly catch up to his father. He makes a great Master of Arms due to already having C Rank in Swords and Lances. Seal Strength can help him soften up enemies; Life and Death is a risky skill that can make Siegbert extremely powerful, especially in combination with Trample. He can mitigate the damage gained from Life and Death with Armored Blow on the player's turn, or Spendthrift. If doing this pairing, consider having Mozu pass a skill from one of her Friendship Seal classes, as Siegbert can easily pick up Aptitude and besides Quick Draw and Amaterasu, none of the Archer skills are particularly helpful for him. Pavise from Friendship Sealing with Effie can make him extremely difficult to take down in conjunction with Aegis, and if playing Revelation, Lancefaire from Oboro is a solid choice to make him stronger when using Lances.
