“Yes. I suppose even I have someone I want to send a letter to when I die. If I die, I want you to read my letter.”
—Noah to Zelot in The Binding Blade.
Noah (ノア Noa) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. Noah is a member of the Illian mercenaries who were hired by Lord Hector shortly before his death in The Binding Blade. Noah is best friends with Trec and trained Fir in the arena. Noah is generally a very friendly person. He states in their supports that he fell in love with Fir at first sight. He is also close to his liege lady Juno. He set out to test his strength when the war ended.
He makes a brief cameo appearance in chapter 18 of the Hasha no Tsurugi manga.

Unlike many cavaliers in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, Noah starts off with a higher weapon rank in Swords than in Lances. In addition, Noah ties with Perceval for having the highest Constitution among the playable Paladins; this allows him to not suffer an attack speed penalty while using a Steel Sword, which can be very useful during the Western Isles chapters. After promotion, his constitution will be high enough that he can wield Durandal without losing attack speed. Statwise, Noah is a well-rounded cavalier with high HP, skill, and decent luck, which makes him very accurate and have a better chance to land a critical hit. His strength can wind up a little low, but a support with Fir or Trec can alleviate that.
Noah - Vagrant Knight (流浪の傭兵騎士 Rurō no yōhei kishi)
- Wanting to test his ability, Noah left Zelot's group and traveled the world as a lone mercenary knight. Although several nations offered him positions in their militaries, he turned them all down. Many people have been inspired by his strength to live life by just being himself...
Noah is a Hebrew name meaning "rest, comfort". In the Book of Genesis, Noah had formed a covenant with God where he took his whole family and at least two of each animal onto a boat, while God flooded the world to punish all of those who had done evil. After the flood, a rainbow forms to show Noah that God did not forget him.
Noah is also a female name, for she was the daughter of Zelophehad, in Numbers 26:33 in the Bible.
- According to a Japanese gaming news website, Noah landed 39th place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.
- Noah, Zelot, and Trec all share the exact same Defense growth, and almost exactly the same HP growth. (with Trec being the exception with 10% more in the growth)
