“Oh, shaddaaap. Dun interrupt my drinkin'! Ha. Ha. Ha. Are you stupi--? Don't gooo. Y'all can't cross the sea by yourselves, can ya?”
—Saber in Gaiden.

Saber (セーバー Sēbā, Savor in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is 34 years old.

He is voiced by Takehito Koyasu in the Japanese version.

ProfileEdit

A former member of the Rigelian army, Saber is a Mercenary that Celica hires to protect her group during their seaborne journey. Ever since his employment, Saber more or less acts as Celica's advisor, albeit an unconventional one. After the war, he marries an unknown woman and joins Jesse's kingdom.

Personality Edit

Saber is a coarse seaman with a dry sense of humor. He acts very fatherly towards Celica and is very blunt and brutally honest with his speech mannerisms.

OverallEdit

Saber is a character that fills an important early role in Celica's route. He is the first melee unit that Celica can recruit, and will need to act as the group's protector for a while as he is the most agile and durable of the group at that point. Once Valbar is recruited, he becomes more of a backup tank since Valbar essentially can't be hurt by Physical attacks. Saber will be Double Attacking most enemies since he starts with a great level 1 Speed stat of 10, but his low Speed and Strength growth means he must rely on Promotions to remain relevant to your party.

In Celica's route, she gains access to three Mercenary units: Saber, Kamui and Jesse. When considering the three Mercenary units that Celica can obtain, they can generally be simplified into 3 types. Saber is the durable, defensive Mercenary, Kamui is the all-rounder Mercenary with even stats, and Jesse is the late recruit with the best base stats and growths making him the most dangerous. An optional, Pre-Promoted Sword Fighter, Deen, is also available to recruit. Deen is best described as fragile and aggressive.

Saber's weakness is that not only are there major redundancy issues with so many Mercenary recruits, but Mercenary units are generally offensively oriented, and the main stats he excels at are defensive. His defensive stats aren't so impressive that the other, more offensively capable Mercenary units cannot compete with him in a defensive role. They make up for the lower Defense and Resistance with their superior Speed and Evasion. On the flip side, he winds up struggling to deal comparable damage to the rest of the Mercenary units later in the game and is not as threatening.

Overall, Saber is important early in the game, but he loses out to his Mercenary companions later in the game.
