  • In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary—the "x" value shown in the table—to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Role

Forsyth reprises his role in the remake. He is also featured in a Memory Prism, where he and Python first join the Deliverance.

Personality and character

Forsyth had very little characterization in Gaiden, owing to his minimal dialogue. He was given an expanded personality in Shadows of Valentia, where he has a straightforward attitude, being very passionate about fighting in the Deliverance. As a result, he is unable to understand apathy in other people, especially his childhood friend Python.

Ending

Gaiden

As one of the knights of the kingdom, he works towards the restoration of Valentia.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If Python and Clive survived
Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war, working hard to bring order back to the land. Time took off some of his more caustic edges, and he served many years alongside Clive as a poised and thoughtful lieutenant.

If Clive died
Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war, and he lived his life for them as the late Clive would have wanted. Time took off some of Forsyth's more caustic edges, giving him a poised and thoughtful demeanor that reminded many of his old commander.

If Python died
Forsyth joined the One Kingdom's knights after the war. The loss of Python left him empty, which is perhaps why he volunteered to go to the borderlands to bring the king's peace. He met and wed a woman from the area, and the two never returned to the capital.
