Personality and character

Frederick, albeit calm and collected, serves as Chrom's sarcastic lieutenant, who orders tremendous effort for trivial things (but prefaces those orders with a smile.) He's a bit of an overachiever, spending his free time doing several things around the camp. The fondest of starting fires.


Main article: Frederick/Supports


Frederick - Cold Lieutenant (single ending)
As Ylisse's new knight captian, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Few ever forgot his glowing smile and idle quips, even as he doled out tasks that would break a wyvern.

Frederick and Robin
Many wrote of Avatar's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Frederick, above all else.

Frederick and Lissa
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Lissa often visited his charges in town to report concerns, and transgressions, to her husband.

Frederick and Sully
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Sully, assisted him, becoming an object of admiration for strong women the world round.

Frederick and Miriel
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Alas, his wife, Miriel, would often vanish for weeks at a time as she pursued her studies.

Frederick and Sumia
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Sumia, traded her lance for a peaceful stretch of pasture and raised a happy group of pegasi.

Frederick and Maribelle
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Maribelle, did her own part for Ylisse by studying hard and becoming a respected magistrate.

Frederick and Panne
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Panne, showed no interest in his work but gradually learned to enjoy human life.

Frederick and Cordelia
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits with his wife. Teaching was hard for Cordelia, however, as she was forced to neglect her own gifts.

Frederick and Nowi
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Nowi, frequently came to the training yard to lend a hand or instill terror in a new charge.

Frederick and Tharja
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Tharja's rare appearances at the training yard sent terrified recruits screaming into the night.

Frederick and Olivia
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife Olivia's dances were said to keep his resolve strong and open the minds of his charges.

Frederick and Cherche
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits with his wife, Cherche. Students quickly learned to fear the couple's famously disarming smiles.

DLC battle quotes

Are you the Risen that's been doing the thieving? You stole from a princess, too! ...I cannot let this go unpunished. Prepare to be shaken down, knave!
— Frederick, in The Golden Gaffe.
An unusual enemy like this ought to yield ample experience. Perhaps these foes should be left to units with more room to grow than me. But that doesn't mean I'll hold back if they stand in my way!
— Frederick, in EXPonential Growth.
I sense it will take more than our usual tactics to defeat these Deadlords. I ought to learn what I can and report back to Robin. But first- a sample of what our adversaries can do!
— Frederick, in Infinite Regalia.
Never in my life have I weathered a battlefield so treacherous. What torture, to watch so helplessly as my comrades suffer at every step... Gods, give me the strength to tear up every one of these spikes at the root!
— Frederick, in Death's Embrace.
Some battlefield this is. The gravel is scorching, and the lava burns like wildfire! Once again, nature makes us little men seem so insignificant and powerless... I need to see those merchants and my friends through this, no matter what.
— Frederick, in Five-Anna Firefight.
I may have been sleeping, but still—the book was stolen on my watch. Perhaps had I not stayed up half the night sketching designs for Chrom's new poster... Nevertheless, the time for redemption has come. Prepare to hand over that roster!
— Frederick, in Roster Rescue.
This beach is a disaster! Who left all these sharp rocks in the sand? I must pick them all up before the others get hurt! And YOU are going to help me! ...If you're still breathing when I'm done.
— Frederick, in Summer Scramble.
Hmm... The rocks here are slippery from all the moisture... I'd better lay out some dry rags before milord and lady take an exalted spill.
— Frederick, in Hot-Spring Scramble.
