“Kamui, Leo, don't slip up!! If Dahha is defeated, his henchmen should all run away. There! Bring down Dahha!!”
—Valbar in Chapter 2 on the opening in Pirate's Fortress

Valbar (バルボ Barubo, translated Valbo in the Japanese version and Baro in the fan translations) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is an Armor Knight who, with his sworn Brother Leo and Kamui the mercenary, fight against Dahha, a pirate boss who killed his family. Celica's party lands in the middle of their fight, so Valbar's party and Celica's party team up to beat Dahha. When the battle ends, his party joins Celica's party. After the war, he trains the young soldiers of the Kingdom of Valentia at Alm's request.

Valbar is an above average unit, and he fills an important role in Celica's route when you obtain him. Early in Celica's route, Savor will act as your tank to block off choke points since the rest of her party is filled with Mages. When you obtain Valbar, he takes over Savor's role and does a better job since the Armor class provides far superior base Defense, Strength, and HP when compared to the Mercenary class.

For a Soldier/Armor, Valbar's growths are actually quite good compared to Luka and Fols, as he winds up as a balanced Armor. He will prove useful as a tank for Celica's route, as her party is Mage and Mercenary heavy, but will have sometimes have trouble on the offensive unit due to his low Move, no one in Celica's group learns the Warp skill. Thus it is recommended to have the enemies come to Valbar instead, or to eventually send Valbar to Alm's party. Valbar will do well in desert maps, such as on the route to Geyse as all non flying units will be reduced to one movement, making his movement the same as the rest of the army.
