“Oh, sod it all. I'm not as bright as I'd like to think I am, so, uh...count me in!”
—Gray giving in on Alm's request to join the Deliverance

Gray (グレイ Gurei) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is 18 years old.


A Villager from Ram Village and one of Alm's childhood friends, he joins the liberation effort after Lukas tells them that General Desaix took over Zofia Castle. After the war, he marries Clair, although only after having to fight his friend, Tobin, over her.


Gray has an easygoing, chatty, and sometimes aloof personality. He comes from a merchant family and therefore is knowledgeable of the world outside of Ram. He does not have much self-awareness, often barging into conversations and being unconscious of how his own words come off as to other people. Gray asserts himself as the tacit "leader" of the villagers and is very confident in his abilities. In battle, he adopts a gung-ho personality which is evident in his quotes and animations. Gray has also been shown to non-maliciously make fun of Alm at times.

Of Alm's 3 Villager friends, Gray is in the middle, suffering primarily from a horrendous speed growth. Luckily, this can be mitigated by promoting him from Villager to Mercenary, which will give him a tremendous boost in Speed and allow you to take advantage of his relatively high Strength growth. Another bonus to this is that Alm cannot recruit any Mercenary units, so making one of your Villager units a Mercenary is a decent idea, and Gray is a prime candidate for that promotion.

The Soldier class is also a decent option for Gray, as they eventually promote to Armor, a class that is the least hampered by low Speed. However, Alm's route has 2 Soldier units (Lukas and Forsyth) that you obtain early in Chapter 1, both of whom are as good as or better than Gray, so you will wind up with some redundancy issues. Promoting Gray to Archer also works out well for him. While Python will wind up better than him as an Archer, this is not much of an issue since Archers act as support units with very little chance of being harmed if used properly, as their range of 3-5 spaces means they will not clutter your front line or need to be near danger, so characters with lower growths like Gray can use the class to still be useful to the team without risking death.

Early on, Gray will likely start off as one of your most powerful damage dealers. This is particularly true since he is a prime candidate for an early game Thunder Sword, assuming you promoted him to Mercenary. Unfortunately, due to unimpressive starting stats and low growths, he will quickly begin to lose out to other, more statistically impressive units.

Passive Supports


Gray has the highest strength growth of all the three male Villagers in Alm's route; given that solid strength tends to be very important in order for characters to deal a lot of damage, Gray's solid strength growth allows him to stand out. This, in particular, makes Gray very effective in the Mercenary class line, as no Mercenaries are recruitable in Alm's route and Gray's skill and speed tend to be solid enough for him to be solid offensively. As opposed to Tobin and Kliff, Gray's strength growth can give him the ability to push his strength past the bases of the Myrmidon and Dread Fighter classes before he promotes; given that the Dread Fighter strength base is not particularly solid, having such a solid strength growth is very useful and puts Gray well ahead of other characters. This trait is also useful if Gray promotes into an Archer, but Python is a recruitable Archer in Alm's route with that exact trait, as well as a solid speed growth (but a terrible base) to support it. Gray's stats tend to be average elsewhere, though his low Luck and resistance can be problematic, the latter at least if he is not in the Dread Fighter class.

Compared to Tobin, Gray will have better strength, noticeably worse skill, similar speed and defense, and lower luck and resistance; compared to Kliff, Gray will have better HP and strength but lower defense and resistance, alongside having much worse luck, though is mostly due to bases as Gray's luck growth is higher than Kliff's. Compared to Faye, a female Villager exclusive to Echoes, Gray will have similar strength, skill, and speed and higher HP, but lower defense and resistance.

Possible EndingsEdit


(If both Tobin and Clair are alive)
"He fought with Tobin over Clair, and won her heart splendidly. 'For a man, it's not the face that matters, but the heart!' Or so he declared."
(If Tobin is dead)
"Due to his grief over Tobin's death in battle, he drowns himself in alcohol every day. When will a smile ever return to his face...?"
(If Tobin is alive but Clair is dead)
"Having lost the one he loved, never to meet her again, he set off on a journey by himself."

Echoes: Shadows of ValentiaEdit

(If both Tobin and Clair are alive)
As a member of the One Kingdom's Brotherhood of Knights, Gray worked diligently at restoring the continent. He applied himself equally to winning Clair's heart, and beat Tobin out in the end. As he was heard to say, "Pick the guy with the big heart, not the pretty face."
(If Clair is alive but Tobin is dead)
Devastated by Tobin's death, Gray was nearly lost to the demon drink until Clair convinced him to clean up. After declining knighthoods in the One Kingdom, the two married and lived out quiet lives. Gray was especially fond of his son, whom he named after his friend.
(If Tobin is alive but Clair is dead)
Having lost the woman he loved, Gray surprised even himself by embracing the life of a vagabond and setting off for parts unknown. His friends spared no effort in attempting to track him down, but it was to no avail.

Trivia Edit

  • Gray is among the few characters in Gaiden to have his hair color changed in Echoes, shifting from green to black.
  • Gray has two older sisters.
  • Gray shares his English voice actor, Max Mittelman, with Fates' Leo, Forrest, and Kaden.
