He is an armor knight of Ostia and Gwendolyn's brother. He joins Roy's army by Lilina's wishes.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Role

At the beginning of the game, Bors is the only Ostian knight in Roy's escorting group; he has been entrusted with bringing Lilina safely to her home. Therefore, when seeing how Pherae is being attacked by bandits and learning that his lady is in danger, he joins the battle and helps defeat the brigands. Once Roy's group reaches the castle and Lord Eliwood sends his son to lead Pherae's troops in his stead, Lilina asks Bors to watch for Roy. Swearing to protect him with his life, Bors follows Roy during the whole campaign against Bern.

After Bern is defeated and the war is over, he goes back to Ostia and works to bring prosperity and harmony to it.

Personality and character

A loyal knight of Ostia, Bors cares about all members of the Ostian army in a gentle and quiet way. The only exception to this is his sister, Gwendolyn, whom he tends to fuss over. He finally comprehends she has grown up in their final support, but before, he showers her with nervous questions[1]. This contrast strongly with his behavior towards Lilina, whom he can reassure with little problem[2].

He is very understanding and does not judge on appearance, even considering Astore, who feels guilty of Hector's demise, to be part of Ostia's knights[3]. But norms and honor codes are very important to him, as he disapproves of Bath training in arenas, stating that such things are not becoming of a knight[4].

When it comes to fighting, Bors says he prefers the role of a shield[5]. He discusses this with his fellow knights Bath and Ogier. Bath seems to think the opposite, prompting Bors to suggest that they should become the strongest knights of Ostia, with Bath being the lance and Bors acting as the shield[6]. In the case of Ogier, Bors acts more like a mentor; he firmly believes that there must always be a reason behind the fighting.[7]
