If you're staying, then I will as well. I won't allow you to go off alone and commit suicide.
— Alen to Lance in a support conversation.

Alen (アレン, Aren), also translated as Alan and Allen, is a cavalier in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade who first appears in Chapter 1.

He is a daring cavalier of Pherae, who fights with Roy throughout the whole game, and a friend of the cavalier Lance, a much calmer knight.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade


Alen first appears in Chapter 1, when he is escorting Roy back to Pherae from Ostia. Unexpectedly, the castle of Pherae is being attacked by bandits. Along with Lance, Marcus, Bors, and Wolt, he helps Roy to defeat the bandits and save those trapped in the castle: Lilina, Eliwood, Roy's ill father, and Merlinus. He continues to loyally fight for Roy throughout the rest of the game.

Personality and character

Alen is a reckless knight with a fiery personality. His fighting style is often to charge into the enemy with brute force. To Thea, he explains that it is because as a cavalier of the army, he must show his strength to the enemy[1]. However, Marcus advises him not to be so rash when fighting[2]. Although he is so daring, he takes his job as a knight very seriously. He is very devoted to protecting the other soldiers, especially Roy. He trains very hard to get stronger, even on the battlefield, in order to help Roy.

Alen says little about his past in his support conversations. He is a very good friend of Lance and as a Pheraean knight, his job is to protect Roy.

  1. "Thea: Anyway, what I wanted to say was, why don't you be more careful when you fight?
    Alen: I understand what you're saying. But I can't pull back.
    Thea: You're still saying that? But the way you fight...
    Alen: In battle, the first ones to match blades with the enemy are us, the knights. The enemy will judge the entire army's strength by looking at how we fight. That's why I have to show them our power.
    " - Alen and Thea's B support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  2. "Marcus: Your courage is not a bad thing. Rather, it should be praised. However, I am worried that you might go berserk and go rushing in, leaving Master Roy behind.
    Alen: Yes...
    Marcus: A true knight must think about what he must do at a given moment and change his style accordingly. Charging is not always the best way.
    " - Marcus and Alen's B support, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
