“Show the enemy the wrath of the Ostian knights!”
—Bath to Wendy in a support conversation
Bath (バース Bāsu, translated Barth in the fan translations) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. Bath is a well respected and well revered knight of Ostia. Bath has possibly been employed the longest out of all of Ostia's knights. Bath although not related to Wendy 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.

Bath 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 Barth will have troubles hitting or avoiding enemies. While he does have the Triangle attack option with Bors and Wendy, their low movement ratings make it difficult to set up. If you do decide that you want to use Bath, 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.
Bath - Knight of Justice (剛直なる重騎士 Gōchokunaru jū kishi)
- After returning home, Bath was put in charge of the Ostian military. Although devastated from the tragedies of Hector's death and the rebellion, Bath's strict but fair leadership led the Ostian Armor Knights to glory once again.
