Haitaka (ハイタカ) is a capturable boss character who appears in Fire Emblem Fates on the Conquest route. He is voiced by Hidemitsu Shimizu in the Japanese version.

ProfileEdit

ConquestEdit

Haitaka is only encountered on the Conquest route, where he and a group of Hoshidans occupy Fort Dragonfall. His group has also captured Azura and planned to kill her, due to her origins in Nohr and Queen Mikoto's death which caused the majority of the Hoshidan population to look at her in suspicion.

Fortunately, the Avatar's army notices his group as they pass through the fortress on their way to Notre Sagesse under Garon's orders, and free Azura from Haitaka's men. In the ensuing battle, Haitaka is defeated and his fate is either fallen in battle or captured by the Nohrian army.

OverviewEdit

As a boss, Haitaka is surprisingly competent for an unpromoted foe, but he is not exceedingly menacing. It is advised to capture him regardless of the mode being played, as he starts out with Rally Defense in all modes, which is extremely useful in the Conquest route. Capturing him on Hard is highly recommended as he will also come with Strong Riposte, a very useful skill when enemy units attack him. He also comes with Seal Defense on Lunatic, but this simply avoids some grinding time as Haitaka can learn this skill normally.

Ideally, Niles should move in to capture Haitaka. Whittle his health down carefully, as an unexpected critical or offensive skill activation will most likely kill Haitaka. Have Niles deal the finishing blow with "Capture"; if Niles does not get Haitaka, heal him with Elise, use Azura's song to have him attack or retreat to safety, or have Silas use Shelter to bring Niles out of Haitaka's range, if he is going alone.

As a playable character, Haitaka may be recruited as soon as Chapter 10, provided that the player either patiently captures him in Chapter 9 or by visiting and battling other players. If the player has not yet completed Paralogue 1 and Invasion 1, they can also recruit Haitaka by persuading him after Chapter 9 or once after each of these two battles are fought. Recruiting Haitaka is highly recommended owing to his skillset, especially on Lunatic Mode where you will need the extra defense he can offer for the upcoming chapters. Once the player starts Chapter 23, Haitaka may be replaced by the "Rallyman" as the player's rally unit (given as soon as he is captured and persuaded), which can allow players to swap Haitaka into an offensive role due to his impressive growths and skills.

Haitaka's base class is the Spear Fighter, which branch out into the Spear Master and Basara classes. From the Spear Fighter class, Seal Speed works nicely alongside Seal Defense, and Lancefaire helps boost his damage output. Since Haitaka's normal classes have access to Lances and Naginata, Lancefaire therefore acts as a neat complement to his combat capabilities. From the Basara class, Haitaka can learn his only offensive skill, Rend Heaven, one that boosts his damage output depending on the Strength of his foes. Quixotic, conversely, helps increase his chances of activating Rend Heaven, allowing him to land increased damage on foes more consistently. Given these facts, it is thus advisable to raise Haitaka as a Basara first so that he will be more effective Spear Master once he has learned the Basara's skills.

Other Routes:Edit

Haitaka will be added the Unit Logbook as soon as he is recruited, allowing players to purchase and use him in other routes. His Rally Defense can still provide some usability in Birthright or Revelation, but he can easily become an offensive unit earlier in the routes. When compared to Oboro, his growths surpasses her in almost everything besides Magic and Luck, and falling a little below her on Defense. Giving him a Guard Naginata will help fix his Defense issue if it doesn't go too well. He can be used in favor over Oboro due to his impressive growths as a Spear Fighter and will arguably be overall, the better Spear Fighter in the game. He still cannot support, however, meaning he will not receive any bonuses from other units like Oboro does. The two of them also work well together if players wish train them both to increase their army's offenses.

QuotesEdit

“Hey there, Nohrian pawn. Care for a little lesson in Hoshidan combat?”
—Haitaka's pre-battle quote.

“How...mortifying...”
—Haitaka's defeat quote

Defeated by Player/EnemyEdit

“How did I...”

“What...?!”

EtymologyEdit

Haitaka is the Japanese name for the Eurasian sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus).

This bird-based naming convention is shared with Kumagera, another capturable Hoshidan general.

TriviaEdit
