“Just when I've finally found some work, now I have to throw it all away. This is all your fault!”
—Guy to Matthew when first recruited by him.
Guy (ギィ Gyi) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is a confused swordsman from Sacae's Kutolah tribe who wishes only to be the greatest sword wielder in the world. He will do what he has to do to survive. Guy is very jumpy and stutters often as denoted in his supports with Matthew and Rath. He also looks up to Karel and wishes to become Karel's apprentice so he can become the greatest sword wielder in the world.
Guy appears as a Sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
While living in the village of his tribe, Guy had heard stories of the village leader's son, Rath, but he had left the village sometime before. Three years prior to Eliwood's journey, Guy left Sacae on a journey to become the greatest sword wielder. It is revealed in one of his Support Conversations with Rath that he left due to him not being able to use a bow well nor hunt, but was told by the leader of his tribe that he had a good sword arm.
Two years later, Guy found himself in Caelin without any money or food. He collapsed, but was saved by a thief named Matthew, who fed him four pieces of meat. Guy thanked him and promised he would repay him. Matthew never forgot his promise. Ironically, Guy said he owed Matthew his life, then took it back. In a support conversation with Matthew, he even wrote down he owed Matthew his life on an oathpaper.
One year later, Guy found himself penniless again, but joined a group of mercenaries so he would not go hungry again. He starts as an enemy against the player in Chapter 13 in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, however, the player can recruit him by having Matthew talk to him in the Player Phase.
In his ending, it is said that by perfecting his form he gained the title of "Saint of Swords", which, presumably by coincidence, would also be the new title of his potential teacher, Karel.
Guy is not seen by his teacher's side during the War on Bern, though it is possible he may have died fighting for Sacae or stayed away from engaging in the war like Karel. A possibility suggested by Guy's last support conversation with Karel, and by the latter's survival into the next war that Guy may have perished in a duel with his former Master.
If Guy gets an A support with Karel, it is to be noted they agreed to fight one year later. However, it was also implied that Karel was reluctant to kill those he developed a strong relationship with even if they are stronger or ready as shown in his support conversation with Karla.

Guy proves to be a very fast and accurate unit, with an acceptable 50% Skill growth and a whopping 70% Speed, and his Critical Hit Rate will get a severe boost once he promotes. Unfortunately, his Constitution (being the lowest of all the Swordmasters in The Blazing Blade) and Strength tend to remain fairly low (though his low strength can be pulled up with support bonuses, such as from Matthew or Priscilla). His Defense and Resistance do not raise much either, and his other stats are just above average. Avoid giving Guy heavier weapons until properly trained, since they would only be a waste considering Guy's strength.
Despite that, Guy is a fairly strong unit. He can be a reliable fighter once he is promoted. It is advised to train him thoroughly in any Arena found throughout the game, so as to progress his growth faster. Once he turns into a Swordmaster, his stats change drastically. He more than often maxes his Skill and Speed, allowing him to dodge very well. His HP can get pretty high too due to a high HP growth rate, which compensates for his meager defenses.
As a Swordmaster, Guy's critical rate is increased by 15%, and combined with his good skill and support options, he can have a devastatingly high critical rate, that allows him to deal massive to an opposing target, especially when equipped with a Killing Edge. Such criticals can also compensate for his meager strength, allowing him to deal more damage to sturdier targets.
Guy receives Hector Hard Mode bonuses to his stats because he is a recruitable enemy. The most noticeable boosts are to his HP and strength most of the time, which, in the long run, help Guy considerably.
“I will be... the best... swordsman in all of Sacae...”
“Let me show you how much my blade has matured!”
—Final Battle Quote
Uhai: Oh... so you are from Sacae.
Guy: I am Guy of the Kutolah!
Uhai: Kutolah... the Silver Wolf, Dayan's tribe! They're said to be the strongest on the plains. But you're still a child. Do you fight like one?
Uhai: Then show me. Come!
At the beginning of Chapter 17
Guy: Ohhh... I'm going to be sick. Doesn't this bother you? This ship moves too much...- I... I can still fight, though. My sword arm's fine!
Guy - Mounted Swordsman
Guy continued in his quest to be the finest swordsman in all of Sacae. His form was so perfected that all called him the Saint of Swords.
They fell in love amidst conflict, but Priscilla was a noble and Guy was but a mercenary nomad. Guy rode way before her tears could stain the earth, but Priscilla's bright smile remained in Guy's memory forever.

- Guy shares his title with the swordmaster, Karel. This is due to a translation error for Guy's epilogue, as in the original Japanese he was said only to be able to match "The Sword Saint" in strength, rather than becoming the Sword Saint himself: "The Sacaen swordsman followed his dream and continued his journey to perfect his sword. Eventually, he was said to be able to rival the “Sword Saint” himself."
