“You won’t catch me running home to be some bookworm like my sire. I’ve made a name for myself as a warrior. May as well take that to its logical conclusion and do some more warring.”
His father being a scholar who made a name for himself, Forsyth initially thought in following his father's footsteps, though he later decided to follow the path of a knight, eventually leading Python into joining the army as well.
After the war, he joined the knighthood of the newly formed Kingdom of Valentia.
He has a straight forward attitude and is very passionate about fighting in the Deliverance, not being able to understand apathy in other people, in particular Python.
Forsyth and Clive can be found at the end of the Deliverance Hideout. Defeat the undead monsters within, and talk to them both to have them join your party.
Forsyth is an average unit. No matter which Soldier/Armor/Baron unit you choose to use in Gaiden, they will wind up very similar. The Armor characters in Gaiden are more heavily impacted by their Promotions and strict class role as a defensive tank than they are by their stats or stat growth, as they will all have high Strength and Defense with low Speed.
Forsyth is in direct competition with Lukas, as they are both Soldiers that you obtain early in Chapter 1 of Alm's route. When picking between the two, Forsyth comes with some notable advantages. He starts with higher HP, and will likely retain that HP advantage. He will also end up with more Speed and Resistance than the other Armors, and he ends up with much higher Strength than Lukas or Valbar. Although Forsyth has bad Defense growth, all Armor units in Gaiden have similarly low Defense growth and enough base Defense to make Physical attacks do negligible damage anyways. His main notable weakness is his very low Skill, giving him the worst Accuracy among all Armor units.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Edit
- (If both Clive and Python are alive)
"Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war, working hard to bring order back to the land. Time took off some of his more caustic edges, and he served many years alongside Clive as a poised and thoughtful lieutenant."
- (If Clive dies)
"Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war, and he lived his life for them as the late Clive would have wanted. Time took off some of Forsyth's more caustic edges, giving him a poised and thoughtful demeanor that reminded many of his old commander."
- (If Python dies)
"Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war. The loss of Python left him empty, which is perhaps why he volunteered to go to the borderlands to bring the king's peace. He met and wed a woman from the area, and the two never returned to the capital."
