“We'll desert the army. That way, we won't bring trouble to our motherland, Grust”
—Robert talking to Camus in Archanea Saga
Robert (ロベルト Roberuto, Roberto in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Archanea Saga and Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~. He is a Sable Knight of Grust.
Robert left the Grust Army to assist Camus in delivering Nyna to Hardin during the War of Shadows. He was the only Horseman in the group. As a pre-promoted unit he has the lowest growth rates of the Sable Knights but they're still quite good. What happened to Robert after Nyna is taken to safety and Camus is captured by Doluna isn't revealed.
Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~ reveals Robert managed to avoid Doluna's wrath and he joins along with Belf and Reiden before the original game's chapter 13.
Base Stats Edit
Compared with Warren, Robert suffers more in HP, Str and Def, but excels better in other stats. He is a worthy substitute for both Warren and Castor if the player decides not to use either for a Horseman. The Hero class is recommended for Robert, as the only things he loses are the bow rank and 2 movement; otherwise, his stats either stay the same or improve upon said reclassing, the one exception being Sorcerer.
Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~Edit
"Robert wandered the land, helping the weak. One time, he passed through Grust, aiding the reconstruction effort."
- He has the same name as Robert from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, and even starts out as a similar class to him.
- How Robert managed to avoid retribution from Doluna is unknown. Its likely he was in hiding after delivering Nyna to Aurelis.
