— Arden

Arden (アーダン Arden) was a knight in the service of Grannvale's House Chalphy. When the Grannvale army went to war with Isaach, Arden was one of its few knights left behind, remaining in Chalphy with Sigurd.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

Arden was present in Chalphy when they received word of the Verdane attack on Jungby Castle. At Alec's suggestion, Arden was tasked with remaining at Chalphy to guard the castle in this initial skirmish. Arden subsequently accompanied Sigurd's army on the campaigns in Verdane and Agustria, in exile in Silesse, and presumably in being executed by the mages of Velthomer in the Battle of Belhalla.

Personality and character

Arden is rather slow, both physically and mentally, but very strong and reliable. While these traits make him an ideal heavy-armored knight, they also earn him the mockery of his comrades, particularly Alec,[1] and he often laments that he is ill-suited for fighting out on the field like his fellow knights and as such is overlooked by Sigurd.[2] Despite the mockery, Arden nonetheless respects Alec and wishes he were more like him.[3] Upon marrying and having a child, Arden feels that their welfare is his top priority.[4] His Einherjar incarnation in the Outrealms states that he has a similar lack of presence problem to Kellam.[5]
