Fire Emblem Engage was revealed only a scant couple months ago, and now has only a scant couple months until release. While much of the game remains unknown until release, information has been trickling out through the official Fire Emblem Twitter account (translated by the folks at Serenes Forest), including a handful of characters. Let’s go over everybody we know about so far, shall we?

First is our protagonist, Alear, affectionately(?) dubbed “Toothpaste-chan/kun” or “Bepis” by swaths of the internet due to their striking dual red/blue color combo. Like many FE protags of the past decade, you can choose Alear’s gender and name. They’re a divine dragon who’s slept for 1,000 years and lost their memory. Y’know, it happens. Their voice actors are Hiro Shimono and Aya Endo.



Alear’s sentinel and “Jeigan Archetype” of the game looks to be Vander, a 32nd generation “Dragon Guardian” who protects them with utmost duty and loyalty. He’s stern and straightlaced. He’s voiced by Youji Ueda.



Cramme (tentatively named) and Framme are also Guardians, twins who faithfully guard Alear with Vander. The two of them are at Alear’s side when they awaken. Cramme is gentle and kind while Framme is more outgoing and impassioned, though both view Alear devoutly. Cramme is voiced by Kouhei Amasaki and Framme is voiced by Sayaka Senbongi.



And then we have Marth, prince of Altea, savior of Archanea, and the Emblem of Beginnings (voiced in Japanese by Hikaru Midorikawa as always). He’s the first featured character from past Fire Emblems you can summon. He’s been keeping watch over Alear as they sleep. You know Marth, you (presumably) love him, he’s here to help you out.



Alfred and Céline are nobles and siblings, the first prince and princess of the Firenese Kingdom. Alfred’s the typical aristocratic type: mannered, kind, and “brisk.” He also loves flowers. Céline is a philanthropist who seeks peace above all else, but isn’t afraid to use force to achieve it. Alfred is voiced by Ryouhei Kimura and Céline is voiced by Akari Kitou.



Another familiar face — Celica (voiced once again by Nao Toyama) is the Emblem of Echoes, princess of Zofia who grew up as a priestess in secret after her family was slaughtered. While we haven’t seen her hubby Alm yet, she’ll represent the continent of Valencia and provide another helping hand.



From the kingdom of Firene (Alfred and Céline’s land) comes Louis, an armor knight and gentle giant. He’s very concerned with his friends’ wellbeing and is content to see them at peace. He’s voiced by Haruki Ishiya.



A Firenese Pegasus Knight, Chloé is a lax adjutant who adores Céline (her charge). She has a fancy for nice scenery and fairy tales, looking for places where the two lend themselves to one another. She’s voiced by Saori Hayami.



This face may be less familiar to non-hardcore Emblemiers — Sigurd, knight of Chalphy and inheritor of the divine Tyrfing, stands as the Emblem of the Holy War. Voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa, he’s a dutiful knight who’s inherited the blood of the crusader Baldr in his quest to bring glory to Grannvale. And now he lends you his own power!



Etie is yet another knight from Firene, a noble lady brimming with liveliness who devotes all her time to body-building (though her frilly and non-muscular character design don’t quite suggest that). She exudes elegance. Etie is voiced by Tomomi Mineuchi.



That’s all the characters introduced so far. Check back later as more come to light! Fire Emblem Engage launches on January 20th, 2023.
