— Dalsin

Dalsin (Japanese: ダルシン Dalsin) is a knight of Munster, and the eldest of three children from a village near Fort Kelbeth. Formerly serving Raydrik as a guard in Munster Castle's dungeon, he defected from Munster to ally with Leif upon learning that his youngest sibling, Jubel, had been abducted in the child hunts.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Role

Dalsin was stationed as the captain of the Munster dungeon guard during Leif and Lifis's time in captivity there, and was entrusted with ensuring Leif's continued captivity until people from Conote came to collect him. When the Magi led a raid on the dungeon and freed Leif, Dalsin initially commanded the guard in opposing them and demanded they return to their cells, but had a change of heart upon learning of Jubel's capture in the child hunts and chose to defect and ally with Leif, assisting in his escape.

Analysis

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

Dalsin joins near the end of Chapter 4 and his most standout trait at base is a high defense stat, allowing him to tank physical enemies. However, the Battle Axe he joins with is a poor weapon and should be replaced with a better axe as soon as possible. The best axe Dalsin can be given is the Brave Axe if the player wishes to bring it into Munster; it gives him much better accuracy and allows him to hit enemies twice, which is something he cannot do by himself due to his low speed. This notably increases Dalsin's offensive potential and makes him a much better unit.

Dalsin has another flaw, that being his high constitution. While it allows him to wield most weapons without being weighed down, it also makes him harder to rescue, since he will give his rescuer movement penalties. This is especially problematic considering Dalsin's low movement; he could be rescued by a mounted unit to get him somewhere faster, but because of his high constitution, it becomes difficult to move him around the map. It is not as impactful indoors, where mounted units must dismount and most units have closer movement, but on outdoor maps, it is very easy to notice.

If one desires to use Dalsin long-term, he should be equipped with the Ced Scroll to gain a massive 30% speed growth boost. His promotion to General allows him to use lances indoors, a trait unique to him and Xavier.

Because Dalsin has short-term benefits (good defense and Brave Axe utility) and long-term issues (low movement + high constitution), he is best used for a short time after he joins. Since the maps are indoor at the time, it is easier to make use of Dalsin's assets then, and his flaws are less problematic. Players frequently leave him behind in Munster in Chapter 6, as doing this unlocks Chapter 21x and prevents him from becoming a liability later. If he is used past that point, he can still contribute, but the player must be prepared to face his inevitable shortcomings.

Personality and character

Dalsin was primarily concerned by the ongoing survival of his siblings, Diana and Jubel, and was motivated in his work to ensure their happiness; when he learned of Jubel's abduction in child hunts, he felt he could no longer serve Munster.

Endings

Thracia 776

Dalsin, Knight of Unwavering Resolve
Determined to protect everyday folk from bandits, Dalsin relocated to Kerberos' Gate, near where his siblings lived. He maintained a round-the-clock watch, fighting off brigands every day and night. For a time, his life was a cycle of battle. But before long, the bandit gangs that had long plagued the area around the fort were all but wiped out. Once said to be a place "more terrible than Hell itself," the fort was now called "more safe than the gates of Heaven."
