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

Douglas is a prepromoted general that joins you in chapter 16x, he has a fairly annoying recruitement condition because of his often times suicidal attacks in chapter 16, so it's recommended to save a sleep staff to use on him. Douglas joins in a terrible chapter for him because of the many enemy magic users that target his low resistance and even more enemy status staves that will prioritise him because he's the last unit deployed on said map. His low movement doesn't do him any favours either thanks to the large size of most maps in The Binding Blade, now this could be fixed by rescuing him, but because of his huge 17 constitution it's impossible for any unit besides an unpromoted Sin to rescue him. His bases are rather extreme, he has excellent defense, strength and HP, average luck and skill, but terrible resistance and speed, he also has fairly low growth rates, which is normal for prepromotes in The Binding Blade. Douglas' speed is particularly problematic which stops him from doubling any enemy on hard mode and instead makes him get doubled by almost every enemy instead. This is luckely not a problem for him as long as the enemies aren't using magic or armor effective weaponry as Douglas is excellent at tanking phisycal attacks, but can potentially get overwhelmed by too many enemies. Douglas still does great damage thanks to his high strength and A rank in both axes and lances, but he may struggle hitting the enemies because of his average skill and shaky hit rates of most weapons in the game.

Overall, Douglas is a fairly mediocre unit that can be useful as a filler tank for the army, but his poor movement and the high number of magic using enemies in the game stop him from being escaping said mediocrity.
