“I was sent here to protect the villagers. To fulfill my mission, I will hereby join the Lycia Alliance Army.”
—Klein when recruited by Clarine.
Klein (クレイン Kurein) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is the older brother of Clarine and the son of Pent and Louise from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. In his support conversations with Dieck, he is revealed to be nineteen years old.
He makes a brief cameo appearance in chapter 17 of the Hasha no Tsurugi manga.
Klein is the leader of a mercenary group from Etruria. He hired Thea and her squad of pegasus knights. His troop is stationed in the Western Isles when Roy's army arrives there. Klein receives orders to enter a battle against Roy to protect the villagers. However, he is persuaded to switch sides by either Roy or Clarine, and then convinces Thea to do the same. He is very fond of his younger sister, but still considers her to be young and inexperienced, and does not hesitate to scold her when he thinks that it is needed.
After the war, Klein becomes an ambassador of Etruria.

Klein is a typical pre-promoted unit with lower base stats than if a non pre-promote was trained. However, in Hard Mode, his stats will start out higher, giving him a little more consistency. A Hard Mode Klein will have higher Luck and Resistance than Wolt, but lower HP and Skill. In Normal Mode, Klein's stats will be lower than Igrene's, the other pre-promote sniper, except in luck; however, Klein has some good supports that grow at a quicker pace than Igrene's (in Hard Mode, their stats will be the same, except Klein having much higher luck). Klein has fairly high growths for a pre-promote, and combined with his stat boost in Hard Mode and high weapon rank he will be competent throughout the entire game. He may be a more favorable bow user than Wolt and Dorothy since his bases are less problematic to deal with, and he is slightly better than Igrene thanks to his higher growths and earlier join time. He is very good at slaying flying units since he tends to kill them in one hit with a Silver Bow. Klein has many supports that can fix his low defense, as well as a few that can increase his avoid.
