Alva (Japanese: アルバ Alva) is a playable lance knight in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Role

Alva joins Selphina in the defense of Hannibal's mansion during Chapter 9. Alva does not have a single line of dialogue outside of his death and retreat quotes.

Alva accompanies Leif's liberation army until at least the liberation of Munster. His involvement, if any, with the war after Leif's forces merged with Seliph's is unknown, as he does not appear in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War.

Analysis

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

Alva joins in Chapter 9 and is extremely underleveled for his join time. With only level 2, putting him far away from promotion, and abysmal base stats for his join time, Alva requires significant investment to catch up with other units. He can only use lances outdoors and only swords indoors, preventing him from manipulating the weapon triangle. His weapon ranks are also very low; outdoors, he can use E rank lances, but indoors, he is restricted to D rank swords. This prevents him from using stronger weapons to circumvent his low stats, making it even harder to train him.

If Alva receives the significant investment he needs, he can grow into a competent combat unit. However, he requires more work than most other units in the game. Without favoritism, he is extremely underwhelming and typically benched at the first opportunity.

Personality and character

Alva is nondescript, and given no explicit personality traits. His ending indicates that he has a "jovial and friendly nature".

Endings

Alva, Lance of Leonster
At his own request, Alva was reassigned by Leif and Altena to a post in the former region of South Thracia. There, he strived to quell the area's civil unrest, and restore order to the war-torn land. At first, the locals treated him with distrust, referring to him only as "the Northerner." Yet his jovial and friendly nature eventually won over the people's hearts, and they treated him as one of their own.
