“Lukas keeps talking about kings and politics, but that does little for me. I’m actually just in it for the gold. I have a family to feed, after all. Well, that and I’m not about to let you outshine me!”
—Tobin to Alm in Echoes.

Tobin (ロビン, Robin in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is 17 years old.


He is a Villager from Ram Village and one of Alm's childhood friends. He joins the Deliverance in order to travel the continent, gaining money to support his family. After the war, he joins the knighthood of Valentia and seeks Clair's hand in marriage, only to lose to his friend, Gray.


Tobin has a serious and direct personality. Additionally, he is very poor at reading other people's emotions. Being the eldest of his family, his mentality and overall demeanor carry over to his enlistment in the Deliverance. He acts like an older brother figure to Alm and company.




Talk to him before you leave Ram Village.

Of Alm's 3 Villager friends, Tobin is the weakest, as he suffers from critical flaws that inhibit him from any form of consistency. No matter what path you set him on, he winds up weaker than other characters of that same class. Tobin's entire problem is that he excels in the two supportive, secondary stats (Skill and Luck) at the cost of having low stats in the primary stats (Speed and Strength). A character needs to be at least decent in Speed and Strength in order for Skill and Luck to really matter. It does not matter how accurate a character is or how likely they are to land a Critical hit if their attacks cannot do much damage or Double Attack. Additionally, having terrible Speed and Defense growth makes him one of the most vulnerable units in the game, meaning not only will he be unable to inflict much damage, but he is also an easy target.

If you intend to use Tobin, he will likely do best as an Archer, where his low growths and starting stats will present fewer problems. Archers in Gaiden have an amazing attack range of 3 without a weapon equipped and 5 with a weapon equipped. This allows Tobin to be useful to the team without really putting himself in harm's way or becoming a liability. Other promotions simply leave him too fragile to fulfill his role well. Though it also may be a good idea to simply let Tobin die or leave him in the back in each map in order to spread Experience to other more potent units.

Possible EndingsEdit


"As one of the knights of the kingdom, he works towards the restoration of Valentia."

Echoes: Shadows of ValentiaEdit

(if Gray is alive)
As one of the most scrupulous knights in the One Kingdom's Brotherhood, Tobin spent his life serving his friend King Alm. The king, in turn, placed a great deal of trust in Tobin, eventually granting him both a title and his own castle.
(If Gray is dead)
Unable to move past Gray's death, Tobin abruptly vanished before reappearing just as suddenly several years later. At King Alm's suggestion, he joined the One Kingdom's Brotherhood of Knights. The talkative, playful Tobin of old, however, was gone forever.


  • Tobin is among the few characters in Gaiden to have his hair color changed in Echoes, shifting from purple to brown.
  • Tobin's official English name was changed from Robin to differentiate it from the default English name of the Avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening.
  • In the Japanese prologue of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Tobin uses "ore" as a personal pronoun (generally used to sound masculine) in front of a crying Kliff and Faye to sound more mature, but then switches back to "boku" after the battle, and then switches to "ore" again to look cool in front of Gray.
