“Our territory may be small, but our knights are among the bravest!”
—Kent to Heath in a support conversation
Kent is a stern, uptight knight who always follows the rules. He was trained as a knight of Caelin, along with his friend Sain, by General Eagler, the knight-commander of Caelin.
As knights, he and Sain were sent to Sacae to locate the marquess's granddaughter and to escort her safely back to Caelin. While in Bulgar, the largest city in Sacae, they meet the granddaughter, Lyn, and join up with her and her friend, the player. They escort her back to Caelin and help her to defeat her great-uncle Lundgren to reclaim the throne for the marquess, Lord Hausen. In gratitude for his actions, Kent is promoted to the rank of knight-commander of Caelin.
It should be noted that Kent and Sain are a reverse of the traditional red and green social knight Fire Emblem trope, where the red one is reckless and the green one is modest. In a support conversation between the two, it is revealed that Kent has a crush on Lyndis; Sain encourages him to make such feelings known to her, despite also claiming to have similar thoughts on her.

Unlike Sain, Kent gets more Skill and Speed, but on the downside, his low Luck is a serious problem against enemies holding Killer weapons. His critical evade problem can be solved by equipping an Iron Rune, but his Avoid remains average. He will have no trouble hitting and doubling enemies, but early on his strength is not yet sufficiently developed to one-round most enemies.
Chapter 19: Dragon's GateEdit
“[Tactician],let me take the point.I will break through,even though it may cost my life. If something happens to me, [Tactician]...Lady Lyndis...Please watch over her.”
Final Chapter: Light quoteEdit
“I will gladly volunteer to protect Lycia with my life.”
Defeat quote in Lyn's storyEdit
“Lady Lyndis, [Tactician]. I'm no good to you in this condition. My apologies, but I must withdraw.”
Possible Endings Edit
Kent- Knight of Lycia
For his bravery in fulfilling his command, Kent is named Knight Commander of Caelin. It is a high honor for one so young, but no one denies his worth.
Kent- The Crimson Shield
After Caelin was placed under Ostian rule, Kent became its steward. His dedication earned him the love of his people.
Kent and Lyn
When her grandfather died, Lyn asked that Caelin be taken under Ostian protection. She set out for Sacae with her former vassal and new love, Kent. The people of Caelin gave them their blessings.
Kent and Fiora
Although they returned to their respective countries, they visited one another often and their relationship bloomed. When Lyn abdicated Caelin’s rule to Ostia, Kent resigned, moved to Ilia, and married Fiora.
Kent and Farina
Farina stayed in Caelin as a mercenary, hoping to stay close to Kent. When Lyn abdicated Caelin's rule to Ostia, Kent resigned his commission and served at Farina's side as a mercenary in Ilia.
Other Supports Edit
Kent is probably named after the character Kent in Shakespeare's 'King Lear,' the only of Lear's knights to remain loyal to him.
