Al (アル Aru; also known as Alle) is the main character of the Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi manga. He is a brave, but rash young boy who grew up in the mountains along with his foster father, Magough. The thought of giving up without trying does not exist in his mind. He always carries the titular Champion's Blade and eventually joins Roy's battle to defeat the invading Kingdom of Bern. The weapon Al's Sword from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade is a reference to him.
During his first battle with Zephiel at Missur, the Fire Emblem awakens Al's true power and he promotes to a Dragon Lord. This promotion changes his appearance, although he is unable to retain this form until later. He is not strong enough to survive, so his body was destroyed, but he is saved by Tiena and Athos. He then saves Tiena in his Dragon Lord form. Tiena cannot tell that it is Al until he starts to show some "personality" and seals the power in the dragon stone. However, Tiena does not seem shocked by what happens to Al (at least like Roy).
With the help of the mountain hermit Niime, Al discovers that he is the son of Hartmut, the leader of the Eight Heroes, and Melitha, a female dragon. Hartmut had sealed him and his mother away using the Binding Blade, but the seal was broken by those who wished to abuse the power of the Founding Dragons.
After the war with Bern is over, Al disappears for two years in which he is assumed dead. When he returns, Al is named Viscount Eldried and marries Tiena, the princess of Tania.
Al - Blue Champion
- After defeating Audamorze, he disappeared in the resulting light. Everyone thought he had lost his life, so a magnificent tomb was made in his honor. However, two years later, he reappeared as if nothing had happened. In recognition for his achievements in the war against Bern, he was given the title of "Viscount Eldreed." However it is unknown whether he is truly pleased with such a title. He suddenly and unexpectedly married Tiena, and together, they focused their efforts into building and maintaining world peace.
