Analysis

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


Reyson is a heron laguz who acts as the dancer unit of the game, and can allow other units to move again. This is extremely valuable as it allows another unit to attack again, move farther, use a staff again, rescue/take/drop again, and so on. Furthermore, his Blessing skill lets him heal all adjacent units at the start of each turn. He starts every battle untransformed and takes 5 turns to transform. Untransformed he has a low 5 move and can refresh one unit. When transformed, he becomes a flying unit with 8 move and can refresh four adjacent units. He also gains a stat boost when transformed, though it is only helpful for more avoid and boosted Blessing healing; this will also deplete his laguz gauge. He is also one of the best users of the few laguz stones in the game (note that he cannot equip the Demi Band).

Reyson has a respectable speed and luck base, so his base avoid is above average and he does not get doubled by many units. His strength and skill are poor but do not matter as he cannot attack. His resistance base makes him an decent magic tank if necessary (especially from siege tomes) and an unlikely target for status staves, but he is physically frail and frequently dies in 2 hits, so he must be kept safe. He has 10 magic at base which is enough to contribute to healing via Blessing. All of his growths complement this, amplifying his avoid, magic, and resistance, but having poor physical stats.

As nobody else can replicate Reyson's utility, it is important to make as much use of his abilities as possible. When untransformed, he has poor movement, so it is easy for him to fall behind. This can be compensated through rescue-dropping but it is important to ensure he is not being carried by anyone by the end of a turn or else he cannot act the next turn. Most unmounted units can shove Reyson too due to his low weight, which helps. When transformed, he can keep up with mobile units; it is valuable to position your units such that as many units can get refreshed as possible. Mounted units make this easier as they have canto and can reposition themselves to take advantage of this.

Reyson has a fire affinity which gives an attack and accuracy boost. As he has no offensive capabilities at all, these boosts are useless for him, but can benefit a partner. Tormod gains the benefits of double fire, gaining +3 attack and +15 accuracy with an A support. He is a magic unit with staff utility and celerity, so he is very flexible as an offensive and support unit. Ike and Tanith both have earth supports which gives pure avoid, helping Reyson's avoid; they also benefit from the extra attack boost. Ike is the Lord and is frequently needed up front to seize, so he can be a decent partner. Tanith is extremely mobile and has canto as well.

Analysis

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

Reyson is one of three laguz herons available, and has the ability to let other units move again. He is the most flexible heron, having flight, canto, and the highest movement. Untransformed, he can only refresh one unit at a time, compared to Leanne and Rafiel who can refresh two and four respectively. However, when transformed, Reyson can refresh four adjacent units, making him a powerful support unit after a few turns. As he has 8 transformed move and canto, this also gives him massive flexibility, being able to move into a dangerous area, refresh several units, then canto into safety. Reyson has the highest base level of the three herons and is the only one who already knows Bliss. This can be situationally useful for units with predictable biorhythm curves. Most notably, manipulating any thief to Best biorhythm guarantees a 100% chance of finding a hidden item with them. Comparing Reyson with other herons is only applicable for endgame, where the player can choose a heron to bring; Reyson is most valuable for slower-paced players, but if the player wants to be able to refresh multiple units on the first few turns, Reyson should not be picked.

Reyson has a high base luck and resistance but his other stats are low. He has enough transformed speed to avoid getting doubled on easier difficulties and will rarely get crit on, but he is otherwise extremely frail and rarely survives one round of combat, so he must be kept out of danger (this is mitigated by his mobility and canto). His only strong growth is luck, so he will continue to be extremely frail. The only practical benefit to leveling him is to learn more Chant abilities, especially Valor which fills a unit's laguz gauge, but reaching the necessary levels is not practical without significant grinding or bonus experience.

Reyson has the Blessing skill which heals adjacent units at the start of each turn. This is valuable as it helps free up other stave-users' turns. As Reyson cannot fight, offensive skills are useless. Miracle and Shade are skills that help him survive should the player make a mistake.

Reyson has a fire affinity which gives a useful attack and accuracy boost. As Reyson is incapable of any offense, this is an affinity that purely benefits his partner. As he is forced onto Tibarn's team for part 4, he should partner with units on Ike's team in part 3 that have the freedom to move to Tibarn's team and complement his affinity. In particular, part 3 combat units with a fire affinity can significantly benefit such as Boyd, Mia, and Marcia.

Personality and character

He has picked up may traits from the Hawk laguz, as he lived among them for many years. He also has a rather fiery temper. He wishes to be more like Tibarn.

Battle quotes

I’ll go on ahead. Sorry for not being able to help...
— An unused quote intended to be Reyson's escape quote in Path of Radiance.
I have something to ask you. Were you the one who stole the medallion and my sister, Lillia, from Serenes Forest? [...] If the dark god is awakened, the world will once again be flooded. And this time, even our continent will fall. You will not survive that event... Do you truly desire such an end? [...] Are you saying that the lives of those without strength have no value? [...] ...Life proffered to me by your hand is something I would never accept!
— Reyson, when fighting Ashnard in the final chapter of Path of Radiance.
Ugh... I’ve done all I can to help you... Sorry, but...I’ve got to leave the battlefield...

Despicable butcher! This forsaken place will be your tomb, and it won’t be soon enough.
— Reyson, when fighting Izuka in part 4 chapter 5 of Radiant Dawn.
I was born this way, and mere birth is not praiseworthy. Praise me instead for my strength. What I look like is irrelevant, so long as I have the power to protect my friends.

Evil... You are pure evil. I hear it in your heart. How do you even survive?
