“It is my charge. It is my hope. Sir Orson... Prepare yourself.”
—Seth, before fighting Orson in The Sacred Stones

Seth (ゼト Zeto) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a calm, brave, clever soldier of Renais that harbors feelings for Eirika. He is better known as the Silver Knight.


Seth is General of the Knights of Renais, the elite cavalry force of the Renais Kingdom. Following the brutal invasion by the overwhelming forces of the Grado Empire, he, on Fado's orders, flees from the country in order to protect Princess Eirika, by conducting her to safety at the Kingdom of Frelia. He serves as protector and advisor to Eirika and Ephraim. He is also the man who Fado entrusted the secret of the bracelets to.

He is a very dedicated knight; the fact that he faces the fierce General Valter and continued to follow his orders shows how skilled and devoted he was to his country. Seth is also concerned with the situations of others and watches over the welfare of everyone.


Seth is best described as a 'duty comes first' man. He is stoic, honorable, polite, calm, and usually expressionless. Despite his seemingly cold outside, he is just and fair, and sometimes loosens up when talking to others, such as Franz and Natasha.

Seth also let his duties come first before his feelings, which can be seen in his A Support with Eirika, where he has difficulties expressing his feelings more to people that have a higher social status, showing a great deal of humility and honor.

Seth's starting stats are noteworthy for being on par with those of a legitimately promoted cavalier. Shockingly, despite his outstanding start, Seth actually possesses solid growths across the board, a grand total of 325%, with Luck as his only 'weakness.' Seth typically has inferior HP and superior resistance to all of the other cavaliers, with his other stats ending up around the rough average of those of Kyle and Forde.

Seth starts with an A rank in both swords and lances, allowing him early command of the weapon triangle, This is further supplemented by his 8 move, which allows him to charge into enemy lines and put his good stats to use. Seth also possesses the Anima affinity which, thanks to overall abysmal enemy evasion rates, is at its strongest in this title. He has an extremely easy to foster Support with Eirika, and can also support with Franz relatively easily as well.

All in all, Seth is among the best units in the game, reminiscent of Sigurd in overall power aside from his inability to seize thrones. He starts out strong and winds up even stronger. While other Cavaliers,particularly Franz, will eventually be able to match or even surpass Seth, they all require a substantial EXP investment to rival him. Seth lacks the critical flaw that holds earlygame prepromotes in check, so he'll be able to consistently stay ahead of enemies for the duration of the campaign. If given the chance, Seth can break the game outright.

  • Seth, the Silver Knight (真銀の聖騎士 Ma gin no Seikishi)

Seth returned to Renais with Ephraim and his fellow knights. His dedicated service made him the most trusted of the new king and queen's guardsmen, as well as the most famous of knights in all of Renais.

Upon their return to Renais, Eirika and Seth were wed, with the blessings of Ephraim and all of the Knights of Renais. The tale of the love that grew between a princess and her loyal knight became a beloved romance in Renais.

Natasha returned to Renais with Seth, where the two were wed. The reconstruction of Renais kept them busy, but when all the work was done, they settled down to live their days in peace and happiness.
