“I’m Julian! One of the bad guys! A Soothsire. Oh! Well, except I’m not anymore. See, now I’m a good guy! Lena gave me a reason to- well, let’s just say I’ve had a change of heart.”
—Julian to Marth in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Julian (ジュリアン Jurian, translated Jurian in the Japanese versions) is a playable character from the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem. A former member of the Soothsire band of thieves, Julian, upon falling in love with the sister Lena, makes the resolution to abandon his thieving ways. Thereafter referring to himself as an "Ally of Justice", he aids Prince Marth's army in their entourages in both wars. Julian is also acquainted with Rickard, who affectionately refers to him as "Chief".

In the Fire Emblem OVA, Julian is voiced by Yamaguchi Kappei (山口 光雄) in the Japanese version and Brett Weaver in the English version.

ProfileEdit

War of ShadowsEdit

Julian makes his first appearance in Chapter 3 of Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, where he betrays the Soothsires by rescuing Lena from their stronghold within the domains of the Samsooth Mountains. Aware that Marth's army is approaching the foot of the mountain range from the southeast, Julian guides her to them accordingly after hastily brushing aside her attempt to return to the stronghold to retrieve her misplaced Mend staff. After entrusting Lena into Marth's custody, Julian surrenders to him, and is thereafter granted the opportunity to atone for the crimes that he had committed during his tenure with the Soothsires by joining the army's ranks. Julian will then assist Marth in bringing the War of Shadows to a conclusion, before swearing off thievery and moving to Macedon to make a living through honest means.

War of HeroesEdit

Julian returns in Chapter 3 of Book 2 in Mystery of the Emblem, where it is revealed that following the end of the War of Darkness, he had taken up residence in a Macedonian village with Lena, caring for orphans in a convent. When urged to lead Lena to the safety of Marth's approaching army by Palla, Julian reveals that Lena had disappeared under mysterious circumstances, before returning to the village to source for information on her whereabouts. When Marth later pays a visit to this village, Julian appears to greet him, where he explains that Lena had most likely been abducted by a "strange priest". Julian then agrees to join Marth's entourage on Marth's behest, proving to be instrumental in convincing Matthis to defect from Macedon's army in the same chapter.

Later in Chapter 24, Julian is permitted to join the battle against Medeus, where he proves to be instrumental in rousing Lena from the reverie that she had been placed under. Medeus is felled by Marth shortly after all four noble priestesses are rescued, and following the termination of the War of Heroes, Julian formally weds Lena and thereafter leads a life of serenity with her in Macedon, caring for orphans in a convent.

PersonalityEdit

Despite the fact that he, as a former member of the Soothsires, once engaged in the wicked, deceitful act of thievery, Julian evidently possesses a heart of gold, one that is catalytically triggered when he first meets Lena and falls in love with her, spurring him into resolving to abandon his past and lead a life of honesty for her sake.

Julian has been portrayed as a very devoted lover, a fact that sees him expending every ounce of his free time during the War of Heroes investigating Lena's disappearance. His love for Lena is further explicated in his base conversations with the Avatar in Shin Monshō no Nazo, where he, blaming his weak combat skills for having been responsible for his inability to protect Lena, requests for the Avatar to train him in this regard. Though crude in his mannerisms and speech, Julian has nevertheless been portrayed as quite the romantic, as can be observed through his conversation with Lena in Chapter 24 of Book 2 in Mystery of the Emblem, where he expresses joy at seeing her smile and hearing her voice.

Through his base conversations with Rickard, Julian is also portrayed to be an individual who can be sly and cunning when he chooses to be, as he constantly employs reverse psychology on Rickard in order to guilt-trip him into confessing to succumbing to the temptation of thievery.

OverallEdit

In Shadow Dragon, Julian starts out relatively weak when he first joins, but when compared to Rickard, he is evidently the superior, complete with higher HP, Skill, Luck, and Defence. He requires a good number of level ups in order to become strong enough to survive on his own, however; if he proves to be too weak to inflict damage, it is recommended for an Iron Sword with high might to be forged for him until he is able to wield a Steel Sword. Doing this should aid him in killing weaker enemy units and healers in order to gain experience. Once he starts gaining levels, his Speed and Luck stat will begin to stand out, giving him one of the highest avoid rates out of all the characters available in the army.

In Shin Monshō no Nazo, although Julian is a thief, he possesses higher Strength growths than even Bord, Cord, Darros, and Draug, who being fighters, berserkers, and knights respectively, are acclaimed for their high attack power. He also possesses higher Defence growths than Draug and Lorenz from Shadow Dragon, who (being a knight and a general respectively) are supposed to be specialists in the Defence department. Julian will often cap his Strength and Speed with balanced stats across the board, not including his non-existent Resistance. Using Talismans on him will fix this problem of his, although it may not be entirely necessary due to his proficiency at evading hostile magical attacks.
