“Aw, thanks, man. You saved me. Name's Jesse. Just some cheap merc. I got caught trying to help out a girl captured in Grieth's fortress. Cute kid from some foreign land. Grieth probably intends to make her a slave.”
—Jesse when being recruited

Jesse (ジェシー Jeshī, Jesey in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is 24 years old.


Jesse attempted to save Est from Grieth, but was captured, and imprisoned at the Desert Fortress. Celica's party rescued him, and he joined them. After the war, he made his own nation in Grieth's land, and was joined by Saber and Kamui. He became known as the "Desert Mercenary King".

In Echoes, it is revealed that several years before the game's events he rescued Silque from bandits.

Personality Edit

Jesse is a superficial individual who enjoys life without restrictions. He is very flirtatious and often smooth talks women in Celica's army and often Celica herself.

Overall Edit

In Celica's route, she gains access to three Mercenary units: Jesse, Saber, and Kamui. When considering the three Mercenary units that Celica can obtain, they can generally be simplified into 3 types. Saber is the durable, defensive Mercenary, Kamui is the all-rounder Mercenary with even stats, and Jesse is the late recruit with the best base stats and growths making him the most dangerous. An optional, Pre-Promoted Myrmidon, Deen, is also available to recruit. Deen is best described as fragile and aggressive.

Jesse can be considered a quasi Est Archetype, in that he joins a ways into the game and comes to you below your average party level. However, unlike Est, Jesse actually starts with better stats for his level than other characters of the same class. While Jesse's growths are very high, they are not quite as explosively high as Est's (Jesse having 190% total growth, and Est having 250% total in a game where the average is roughly 150%), but they are high enough where he will outshine characters of the same class. His starting level and stats should only be a little behind your current party, so giving him a sword and catching him up is perfectly feasible without any grinding. He is, overall, one of the strongest units available to Celica.
