“Ah! So you're Sylvia... Pardon me for sayin' so, but you are fine!”
Alec (アレク Areku) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He, Noish, Arden are the first three units the player receives in the Prologue, and along with Noish are the first two Cavaliers in the game, and the only playable Cavaliers in the first generation of the game.
Alec is a knight from Chalphy, one of the six dukedoms in Grannvale, he directly serves under Sigurd along with his fellow knights Noish and Arden. Unlike Noish, who is a serious and proper knight, Alec has a playful personality, capable of being rather teasing, if not rude to some of his fellow knights like with Arden, but he is still just as loyal to Sigurd as the rest of his companions, and is best friends with his partner Noish.
Alec can also very flirtatious with women as shown with his talk with Sylvia and he had admitted that he like to see beautiful women as well, but he is devoted to the woman his married as shown in his lovers' conversation with Briggid in Chapter 5, and can show worry over their safety like with Sylvia in their lovers' conversations in the same chapter.
|Starting Class||Holy Blood|
As the Cain Archetype of Genealogy of the Holy War, Alec's stat growths are well rounded with a focus on Skill. As a cavalier, Alec is good at keeping up with the primary attack force, but he is not as strong as the other mounted units. Although he has the Pursuit skill, his Strength growth is average, he is not very durable and he cannot use A-level weapons even after he promotes. Nevertheless, he is a useful unit.
Father Overview Edit
Alec has evenly split growths aside from Magic and Resistance, meaning his children will wind up well rounded. His lack of Holy Blood means that none of his stat growths are above average and he can only pass on B-level weapons to his children. Alec is best paired with Sylvia, Raquesis, or Briggid. Adean and Ferry are okay as Alec's partners. Ayra and Tailto should be avoided.
In Sylvia's case, her children are both support units, so they don't benefit much from Alec's weaponry or Pursuit. They do, however, gain well rounded stats and Nihil, which prevents enemies from activating special skills.
Raquesis' children benefit from Alec's Pursuit and Nihil abilities, and Alec is a reasonably good father for Delmud, though there are better options.
Briggid doesn't have Pursuit, so her children benefit from both of Alec's skills. Adean also does not have Pursuit (or any skills for that matter), but her children are a Bow Knight and a Sister, so Alec can't pass any weapons to them and thus makes a somewhat bad fit.
Ayra and Tailto should be avoided because Alec offers both of them nothing of note. He cannot improve on the skills or weapons Ayra gives her children herself and both of Tailto's children are mages, which would cripple their damage output. If the player does choose to pair him with Ayra, its advisable for her to give him the Hero Sword and have her win the Silver Blade from Chagall for Larcei.
In Chapter 2, after Anphony Castle is captured, Alec may speak to Sylvia, and she will gain 100 love points with him.
In Chapter 5, if Sylvia/Briggid and Alec are lovers, she may speak to him, but nothing will result of it.
