“Where the hell do you get off!? Okay, I'll fight you... only to shut you up! You ready?”
—Tristan to Dalvin

Tristan (トリスタン Torisutan) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the substitute character of Diarmuid if Lachesis was not paired up. He is the brother of Jeanne.

He also shares a conversation with Dalvin in Chapter 7, after Melgen is captured.

ProfileEdit

Tristan's father was Eve, one of the Agustrian knights assigned to protect Lachesis. Both he and Jeanne were eventually taken in by Sigurd's army. However, the two of them were separated some time later. Tristan was raised in Isaach along with Seliph and the younger initial members of the Liberation Army, while Jeanne was adopted by a traveling merchant, who took her to Leonster. After Jeanne's adoptive father was murdered by the Grannvale Empire, she was raised in hiding by Finn alongside Leif. Tristan and Jeanne are finally reunited in Chapter 7 and they vow never to be separated again.

OverviewEdit

As with most substitute units, Tristan is unable to match up with Diarmuid's potential. Diarmuid's growths will, across the board, far surpass Tristan's no matter who his father is. Even if Diarmuid inherits no skills from his father, he will still likely wind up more useful than Tristan due to his Charm skill. With a good father, Diarmuid will turn out vastly superior.

When compared to other substitute characters, Tristan starts out quite poorly. Although he possesses excellent base stats for a level 3 unit, his lack of Pursuit and decent weaponry will make it extremely difficult for him to deal damage early on, as his chance of activating his Critical skill is very low at first. This means that Tristan will need to steal kills, as he will have a hard time defeating even Axe wielding units on his own due to his poor offense. Unfortunately, Tristan is unlikely to improve much until he promotes as his lack of skills only allow him one swing at an enemy, and his growths, while being high overall for a replacement unit, are stacked heavily toward HP and are otherwise mediocre or poor. After Promotion, Tristan's usability rises substantially. His Skill will nearly cap which will allow his Critical skill to activate much more frequently. His Speed will rise considerably, and he will gain the Adept skill which he desperately needs to improve his offense.

Tristan will ultimately wind up being one of your tougher units due to his strong base stats and high HP growth, but even after Promotion he will struggle to offensively keep up with your units that have Pursuit as both Adept and Critical are unreliable.

ConversationsEdit

In Chapter 7, if Oifey speaks to Tristan, Tristan will gain one point of strength, one point of skill, and one point of defense.

In Chapter 7, after Melgan is captured, if Tristan is positioned adjacent to Dalvin and they are both below Level 10, he will gain two points of strength, one point of speed, and one point of defense, while Dalvin will gain two points of strength, one point of skill, and one point of defense.

In Chapter 7, if Tristan speaks to Jeanne, she will gain one point of luck.

Love GrowthsEdit

Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.

EtymologyEdit

TriviaEdit

  • In chapter 3, there is a girl in a village to the east who proudly states that her boyfriend is one of the cross knights under Eldigan. However, if you visit this village after capturing Silvail, she'll inform you that her boyfriend died in the war against Grannvale. It's likely that Tristan and Jeanne are the children of these two unnamed individuals.
