In the battles ahead, one mistake could lead to our doom. I must pay heed to every aspect of battle for Lord Roy.
— Lance to Wolt in a support conversation.

Lance (Japanese: ランス Lance) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He first appears in Chapter 1. A serene, serious cavalier of Pherae, Lance serves as a foil to his partner Alen's reckless bravery.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Role

Some time before the time of the story, Lance left his previous work and went to Pherae, where he became a trusted knight under Marcus's tutelage.

When Marcus went to Ostia to bring Roy back, he stayed in Pherae, guarding Lord Eliwood and the castle. Lance joins Roy's party after he escapes the castle, attempting to reach his young lord and ask for help against the bandits' attack. Once the castle and its inhabitants are saved, he stays in Roy's army for the rest of the story.

After Bern is defeated and the war is over, he returns to Pherae and works on its restoration.

Personality and character

Lance is a very serious, loyal knight of Pherae who is very respectful and calm in all situations. He reads many books on war strategy and tactics, and often shares his knowledge with others.[1] In battle, he even records every move of the soldiers in the army and the enemies in order to help with the battle.[2] He is quite skilled at the Fire Emblem universe's version of chess, using Fire Emblem classes such as armor knights and swordmasters.[3] He has very sophisticated manners, and does deeply care for the others in the army. When he can, Lance does his best to help the others in the army.

Lance is a knight serving Pherae, and a loyal supporter of Roy. He has been a partner knight with Alen since he came to Pherae, and although they are very different, the two are very good friends. According to Lance, he is not from Pherae, having been there for a short time.[4] Little else is known about his past, and his hometown is unknown. Because of this, Lance tends to belittle himself, a bad habit that Alen[5] and Marcus[6] try to remedy.

    Lance: I see. I wondered the same thing before. I found the answer after going through several books on tactics.

  2. "Lance: Ah, Wolt. I am keeping a record of this battle.
    Wolt: A record?
    Lance: Oh, yes. There is a quote from one of my favorite books. "Information is the most powerful weapon in any battle." And so, I keep track of our allies and enemies and what goes on where.

    Lance: Yes, Sir Marcus. Everyone has been very good to me despite the fact that I'm an outsider...

  5. "Lance: Yes. ...If it ever looks like defeat is certain, I want you to take Lord Roy and retreat. I will act as a decoy for the enemy and buy you time.
    Alen: What? But what about you?
    Lance: If it has to be one of us, it may as well be me. I've served House Pherae the shortest, so-
    Alen: Have you lost your mind?!

  6. "Lance: I cannot see what those experiences are. I am but a young knight. I think you see more in me than there actually is.
    Marcus: I think not.
    Lance: I will use what experience I have, but I don't know that I can help especially. I served a different lord until just recently, after all...
    Marcus: And that is it.
    Lance: Sorry?
    Marcus: That is the experience the others do not have.
