Sacae (サカ Saka) is home to nomadic tribes in both Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade and Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. They are famed swordsmen, as well as horse riders who usually fight from horseback.
Saceans are also known to never lie, and to always keep to their word. This makes common people trust Saceans, as Lyn trusts the word of Uhai, her enemy. On the other hand, some Lycian nobles exhibit racist behavior towards them, like Lundgren who believes Lyn to be unfit of claiming the throne of Caelin due to being half-Sacaean, or the Marquess of Araphen who openly belittles Lyn's heritage and loses Rath's trust because of such behavior.
Of all of the characters from Sacae, most of them are of the Nomad, Nomadic Trooper, Myrmidon, or in Lyn's case something similar to one, or a Swordmaster classes. The exception is the Mercenary Glass, fought in Lyn's story. Although in The Binding Blade, some nomads appear as druids.
It appears that green hair is common among Saceans, as five of the Sacaeans shown have green hair.

Sacae is the Latinized version of Saka (the pronunciation which is kept in the Japanese version). It refers to the Persian name of an ancient Iranian people who founded the Indo-Scythian kingdom in modern-day India and Pakistan. The Saka were a horse-riding people of the Central Asian steppes similar to the in-game nomads of Sacae.
