Appearance(s)
Honestly, I really don’t care one way or another about the kingdom. I don’t have the kind of direction you do. It’s more like I just have a nagging desire to do SOMETHING. So I thought if I joined the Deliverance, I might figure out what that is.
— Gray

Gray (Japanese: グレイ Gray) is a Zofian villager appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is from Ram and is one of the first people to accompany Alm.

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Role

He is one of the first characters recruited in the game. He does not have any story presence aside from the start of the game, where he agrees to preemptively attack Desaix before Ram became a target.[2]

  • 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

Gray reprises his role in the remake, where he is recruited automatically and has a much larger role interacting with Alm. He's willing to join Alm from the get-go, wanting to do something bigger with his life. He remains by Alm's side as his trusting friend, and frequently comments on the ongoing events, either with Alm himself, or Tobin.

Analysis

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


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Gray is unable to excel anywhere except as a Mercenary. However, he makes a very good Mercenary, since his Attack growth is good and his lackluster Skill and Speed are repaired by the Mercenary line's high bases.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

Gray is one of the characters added to the game in the Bitter Enemies update, and became available for summoning by players on July 13, 2017. Only one variation of Gray is currently available in Heroes, based on his Echoes: Shadows of Valentia incarnation.

Starting stats

Gray: Wry Comrade is only available at 5★ rarity.

Personality and character

Gray seems to be fairly laid back, and speaks as such. Even saying "let’s go beat up that Desaix or whatever first.", seemingly not being entirely familiar with who Desaix is. If Tobin dies he does not take it well and turns to alcoholism, indicating that he may not be good at handling loss. As with nearly every character in Gaiden, there is not much characterization due to limited dialogue.

Shadows of Valentia adds more depth to his personality. Apart from being easygoing, chatty, and sometimes aloof, Gray is shown to have more knowledge of the world outside the village than his friends, as he comes from a merchant family.[3] He is confident in his abilities as shown in battle.

Endings

Gaiden

If both Tobin and Clair survived
He fought with Tobin over Clair, and won her heart splendidly.
‘For a man, it’s not the face that matters, but the heart!’ Or so he declared.

If Tobin died
Due to his grief over Tobin’s death in battle, he drowns himself in alcohol every day.
When will a smile ever return to his face...?

If Clair died
Having lost the one he loved, never to meet her again, he set off on a journey by himself.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If both Tobin and Clair survived
As a member of the One Kingdom's Brotherhood of Knights, Gray worked diligently at restoring the continent. He applied himself equally to winning Clair's heart, and beat Tobin out in the end. As he was heard to say, "Pick the guy with the big heart, not the pretty face."

If Tobin died
Devastated by Tobin's death, Gray was nearly lost to the demon drink until Clair convinced him to clean up. After declining knighthoods in the One Kingdom, the two married and lived out quiet lives. Gray was especially fond of his son, whom he named after his friend.

If Clair died
Having lost the woman he loved, Gray surprised even himself by embracing the life of a vagabond and setting off for parts unknown. His friends spared no effort in attempting to track him down, but it was to no avail.

Gray only appears in Gaiden and its remake.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Gray is currently featured on three cards in Fire Emblem Cipher. These cards and other Japanese Cipher parlance denote his name as (グレイ(バレンシア) Gray (Valentia)) in order to differentiate him from Asugi, who character-wise is identically-named in Japanese; English-language fandom parlance has no need to make such a distinction.

One of the below cards' quotes is still in raw, untranslated Japanese; it needs translation.
