“Ah, I get it... So THESE folks are the liberators I've been hearin' so much about. I thought their morale was too high fer them to be Imperial troops. So yer joinin' up with 'em, huh? Looks fun enough, I s'pose. Why don't I come with you? We men of the Dandelion gotta stick together, right?”
—Troude to Perne.

Troude is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. 28 years of age, he is member of the Dandelion Bandits, and despite being a mercenary, is very loyal to Perne.

Profile

Troude first appears in Chapter 12x, where he first notices that someone has broken into the Dandelion Bandits's hideout. After a brief exchange with Perne, he sets off to search for Salem and meet the enemy in battle. The enemy turns out to be Leif's army, and after Perne is recruited into its ranks, he can speak to Troude to get him to join its cause.

Troude then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He disappears thereafter, and rumours state that he most likely returns to being a mercenary.

Personality

Troude is presented as a quiet and serious individual, who has a staunch loyalty to Perne and the Dandelion Bandits. Due to his skill with a blade Perne relies on him as a right-hand man, and Troude seemingly serves him without question or hesitation. Salem comments that Troude would only stop fighting Leif's army if given express orders from Perne to do so.

Despite describing him as "stubborn as a mule", Perne relies heavily on Troude and has been working alongside him for a long time, to such an extent that he's perfectly fine with ditching the rest of the Dandelion Bandits so long as he still has Troude working for him as he's "one of his best men". Ultimately, Troude is an introverted, silent and stern fighter who places loyalty to his employer above all else.

Overall

Secret Book (Artwork).png
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.

Troude comes with decent bases and growth rates. Like Shiva, he has a skill that boosts his durability: Nihil.

Troude's FCM is only 1, while all the other sword fighters have a FCM of at least 3. He does, however, have a base Sword rank of B, which lets him use many powerful swords, including magic swords. This helps to remedy his poor FCM to a small extent.

Troude is a satisfactory unit overall, and a decent addition to your army should you choose to add more sword users to it.
