I see. Lana, we need to do our best out here for mother and our missing father. Someday we'll be able to return with mother to her hometown of Jungby.
— Lester

(Japanese: レスター Lester) is the eldest child of Lady Adean of Jungby. Along with his sister, Lana, he was born and raised in hiding in the Isaachian village of Tirnanog in the aftermath of the Battle of Belhalla, alongside Seliph of Chalphy and under the care of his mother, Oifey and Shanan. He was later one of the first members of Seliph's liberation army in Grann 777.

If Adean was not married in the course of the first generation, Lester's role is filled by Dimna.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

Lester was on a scouting mission outside of Isaach with Oifey and Delmud/Tristan when the Dozel army launched an assault on Tirnanog, but arrived early on in the battle to assist Seliph in combating the occupation.

Trivia

  • Lester bears a resemblance to the Dozel nobleman Lex. If the player pairs up Adean with Lex during the first generation, he can actually be Lester's father.
    • This is due to the fact that, early in Genealogy of the Holy War's development, children were intended be determined in-part by their father as well as their mother; this was scrapped due to memory limitations.[1]

  1. "Although the children are determined by their mothers in the final game, the initial plan was to decide each pairing’s children based on both the father and mother. However, we couldn’t implement that no matter how hard we tried due to capacity limitations, and so it ended up the way it is right now. Since some of the children were taken from those we had originally created before having to cut them down, you might find that some children actually resemble someone else." — Shouzou Kaga, translated by garmmy, Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War Fan Special: Roundtable Discussion, https://garmtranslations.wordpress.com/, Published: June, 1996, translated Feb. 13, 2019, Retrieved: Feb. 23, 2019
