Samuel (サムトー Samuto, Samto in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and its remake. He is a mercenary who poses as the infamous Navarre. He is hired by General Lang, who believes Samuel to be Navarre, as a means to defeat the Altean army. He can be recruited by Caeda, who at first believes him to be Navarre, but quickly realises that is not the case. Samuel explains that he's just a humble mercenary, but he looks so much like Navarre that he thought he'd let people continue mistaking him. If he is recruited by Ogma, Ogma mentions he's disappointed with Navarre joining the enemy yet again, but understands the two would have to duel eventually. Samuel panics and confesses his true identity. Originally he was a gladiator, but he and his friends were saved by Ogma, who distracted the keepers and ended up getting caught and punished. After the war ends, Samuel disappears, although there are rumors that he continues masquerading as Navarre. If Navarre died before the end, Samuel trains himself in order to succeed him.
Sword - C
Samuel is a rather disappointing unit, unlike Radd and Navarre. His skill is average, his luck is rather low, and he's unlikely to cap his strength. Consider passing him up for either Radd or Navarre.
New Mystery of the EmblemEdit
"Samuel vanished after the war. Rumors say that he continued to impersonate Navarre..."
- Although he does not make any appearances, Samuel's exploits are alluded to in Navarre's ending for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. His ending mentions there are other impostors than just Samuel.
