“End of…the road…”
—Radd’s death quote in Shadow Dragon

Radd is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Book 1 of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He is the second mercenary from the harbor town, Port Warren, who joins the Archanean League along with his partner Caesar. After fighting off the Grustian soldiers that surround the town of Warren in Chapter 8, Radd continues to offer his service to Marth until the War of Shadows is brought to an end.

Afterward, his ending states that he fell in love with an unnamed woman during the war and renounced his swordsmanship to focus on winning over her heart, who appears to be Caesar's missing sister. Although it is unclear whether he succeeded or not, Radd does not appear again for the second half of Mystery of the Emblem though (like other characters absent from book 2) he does appear in the remake.

OverviewEdit

In Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, Radd starts at level one with poor base stats. He has decent growths and can become a good combat unit, but he requires a lot of investment. He will usually end up having similar stats to Navarre if trained, with high skill and speed as well as average strength and bulk. Unfortunately, he will not be able to use good 1-2 range weapons unless he is reclassed. If one chooses to take the time to train him, use the arena located directly to the right of him, or let him finish off some of the reinforcements in the north, especially the Horsemen if possible.

In Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, his bases are rather low, but his decent growths will make up for that. He has higher strength, skill, and luck than Samuel, without the expense of having any lower stats, but he has lower defense, and much lower luck than Navarre. Regardless, he is still a fairly decent unit, despite joining under-leveled.
