“Show the enemy the wrath of the Ostian knights!”
—Barthe to Gwendolyn in a support conversation
Barthe (バース Bāsu, translated Barth in the fan translations) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. Barthe is a well respected and well revered knight of Ostia. Barthe has possibly been employed the longest out of all of Ostia's knights. Barthe, although not related to Gwendolyn or Bors, has the ability to use the Triangle Attack with them. After the war, he rebuilt Ostia's army.
He makes a brief cameo appearance in chapter 18 of the Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi manga.

Barthe starts out very powerful as a level 9 knight, excelling in HP, attack, and defense, but his other stats are rather low, and can be problematic, since Barthe will have troubles hitting or avoiding enemies. While he does have the Triangle attack option with Bors and Gwendolyn, their low movement ratings make it difficult to set up. If you do decide that you want to use Barthe, he is best used primarily as a full-out tank against physical attackers, since he has such high HP and defense (but not magical attackers, due to his 2% growth rate in resistance). Otherwise, Bors is a more well-rounded option.

- After returning home, Barthe was put in charge of the Ostian military. Although devastated from the tragedies of Hector's death and the rebellion, Barthe's strict but fair leadership led the Ostian Armor Knights to glory once again.
- According to a Japanese gaming news website, Barthe landed 62nd place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.
