When a villager asks Gerome for help he refuses, but Chrom and the Shepherds show up and decide to help. At the beginning of the battle Gerome is right next to Chrom's party so it is easy for Cherche/Chrom to talk to him. He is reluctant to fight at first, and he asserts that "no man can stop fate," but Cherche or Chrom eventually convinces him to fight, even if just for this battle. Afterwards Cherche notices that her Minerva and his wyvern look similar, and then he shows her the wedding ring and reveals he his her son.
Later it is found out that he didn't originally want to find Chrom and the Shepherds but instead he came back in time so he could release his Minerva in a peaceful realm. Despite his original goal he ends up aiding the Shepherds in defeating Grima regardless.

Personality and character
Gerome is a very distant person, choosing to interact with few people, even pushing his mother away. Gerome, like many of the children characters, did not know his parents well before they died.
Gerome is also a person who takes on much responsibility. He has Laurent report to him on all manner of things, from the health of his fellow soldiers to stocking the appropriate weapons. After some discussion with Laurent Gerome comes to the conclusion that he should interact with the people he is managing.
Gerome, Masked Rider (single ending)
Gerome and Minerva set out for Wyvern Valley. Many saw the rider and mount through the years, though most described the man as distant and contemplative.

Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Gerome, above all else.
Gerome, Masked Rider & Lucina, Foreseer
Gerome and Lucina were married and settled down near Wyvern Valley. While her husband never minced the few words he had to say, Lucina understood, and the two built a happy life.

- As with the other children characters of Awakening, Gerome's birthday matches the Japanese release date of a Fire Emblem series game: September 1st was the release date of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 in 1999.
