“So we'll decide with a battle. That'll let us know who's got the skill to be commander.”
—Roderick in Prologue II New Mystery of the Emblem
Roderick (ロディ Rodi, Rody in fan translations) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. He is a member of the Altean knights who joined after the War of Shadows, alongside Luke, Katarina, and the Avatar as part of the 7th platoon. In the end, he continued working under Marth and became a Paladin.
According to the Takayashiki Hideo's Mystery of the Emblem novel adaptation, Roderick is 18 years old. 
Little is known about Roderick's life prior to enlisting in the Altean army, other than his friendship and rivalry with Luke. When they begin their training together, he keeps cool despite others getting nervous (like Katarina) or even cocky (like Luke). During his training, he strikes friendships with the other members of the 7th Platoon, which Luke is also a part of. He sees Prince Marth to his victory over Hardin and Medeus, and after the war becomes a Paladin of Altea.
Roderick tries his best to impress Prince Marth not only with his lance but with his attitude, which would lead to his chivalrous and overly loyal personality. During the Grustian expedition, he continues to follow Marth while seemingly making Luke look like a lesser knight in terms of composure and attitude. It is implied in his death quote and base conversations that he has feelings for Cecil.

Roderick is an incredibly well-balanced cavalier. While he does not focus on strength and defense as much as Luke does, he is more balanced for the fact that his growths are halfway in between Luke's high strength and defense and Cecil's high speed and skill. Overall, he will end up being a good mounted unit of all due to his well-balanced and good growths. He can make a good Myrmidon upon reclassing.
