I’ve just completed a thorough revision and expansion of my character guide for Fire Emblem: Awakening. This has proven to be one of the more popular posts on the blog, so I thought I should go back and make it as good as it can be. I’ve recently been doing another exhaustive playthrough of this awesome game, so it seemed like a good time to return to the article in the hope of making it do justice to the game itself. It also feels like a good way for me to take stock of my thoughts about Awakening before I embark on the Fire Emblem Fates trilogy.

At 8000 words, it’s comfortably the longest piece I’ve written for the blog. If you’re a fan of Awakening, or even the Fire Emblem series more broadly, take a look and maybe let me know what you think!
