Hey now! I think the, ah... willingness on both sides led to our little surprise, don't you?
— Alec, to Silvia

Alec (Japanese: アレク Alec) was a knight in the service of House Chalphy in Grannvale, and the friend and rival of fellow Chalphy knight Naoise. When the Grannvale army went to war with Isaach, Alec was one of its few knights left behind, remaining in Chalphy with Sigurd.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

Alec was present in Chalphy when they received word of the Verdane attack on Yngvi Castle. When Sigurd tried to instruct his soldiers to remain at Chalphy while he examined the situation, Alec joined Naoise on insisted on accompanying Sigurd into battle, and passed on Oifey's advice of village defense and recommended Arden for guard duty at the castle. Alec 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.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

As his stats show, Alec is a more speed/skill-focused cavalier compared to Naoise. Since Genealogy is a game dominated by mounted units, Alec having a mount from the start allows him to contribute throughout the game. Not only do mounted units traverse the game's massive maps more quickly, but they can also take advantage of movement-boosting road tiles. They also have access to the best version of Canto in the series. In Genealogy, Canto allows mounted units to move and swap their weapons even after attacking, making them inherently flexible and powerful.

Alec's coveted Follow-Up skill lets him perform decently in combat because he can double enemies slower than him. The first two chapters of the game, Prologue and Chapter 1, are filled with axe-wielding enemies and occasional bow users. Alec uses swords, which are much lighter than axes, thanks to which he will double every enemy in these chapters without issues. He is also naturally fast enough to double bow users and continues to do so throughout the game.

Alec also has Nihil, which protects against critical hits and effective weaponry on top of offensive sword skills. There are few enemies in the first generation with skills blocked by Nihil, but having the skill comes in handy while recruiting Ayra in Chapter 1. The player has no access to any other units with Nihil before recruiting Ayra, making Alec the best candidate for baiting Ayra. As long as he is fast enough, he will survive a round of combat against Ayra without killing her on retaliation, making the recruitment much easier. Alec is usually fast enough to do this with his natural growths; still, if he struggles, he can be given the Speed Ring obtained from one of the Prologue villages.

Alec's combat will lag behind most other mounted units after the first couple of chapters unless given proper investment. Alec's primary combat-related issue is low damage output. Still, it can be partially alleviated by giving him a better sword. The Iron Sword Alec joins with is very weak, and a better sword, the Slim Sword, can be purchased as soon as Chapter 1. For additional improvement, Alec can also be given the most powerful swords in the game, such as the Brave Sword. However, these are much more competitive. The player should always keep in mind whether investing in Alec over other units is worth it. As a mounted unit, even without investment, Alec can still contribute somehow; in contrast, other units may need investment to be useful.

Alec is not the best father within the first generation because he does not pass down Holy Blood or many useful skills. Supposing one insists on pairing up Alec despite that, arguably his best pairing is with Erinys, because he passes down Nihil to Fee. Since Fee is a Pegasus Knight, she benefits from having Nihil more than Alec does because it negates her arrow weakness. However, he is a terrible father for magic-oriented children since he is in a physical class.

Personality and character

In contrast to Naoise's steadfast ways, Alec was wilder and more relaxed, but nonetheless a loyal and apt knight. He was a something of a flirt and philanderer, quickly talking to Silvia after she joined their army and being very forthright about his opinion of her.[1] He had a recurring tendency to tease Arden about his different abilities and physical traits.[2]
