Robert (Thracia 776)
Robert accompanies Leif's liberation army until at least the liberation of Munster. His involvement, if any, with the war after Leif's forces merged with Seliph's is unknown, as he does not appear in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War.

Robert joins as a level 1 Arch Knight with horrible base stats for his join time, except for passable speed. His weapon ranks are also horrible - he has an E-rank in bows in nothing else. As a level 1 unit, Robert is far away from promotion, and he has no skills, either. He compensates by having good growths, especially in the offensive department. However, when Robert joins, he cannot contribute very much.
Robert's class comes with some advantages. He has 2-range, so he can avoid counterattacks from enemies. Robert also has a mount outdoors, so his mobility vastly increases on outdoor maps. Outside of these benefits, Robert has a decent FCM of 3 and an action star. The latter gives him a 5% chance to move again after he completes his turn. It is unreliable, but it is something he has that several other units lack.
That said, Robert also has several disadvantages. Outside of his horrible base stats and growths, he cannot counter at 1-range, because he can only use bows. He receives severe dismount penalties indoors, decreasing his already poor stats. Indoor maps also cut into Robert's movement, removing one of his few advantages. As a bow user, Robert cannot capture enemies, either. While he would be a poor candidate for it anyway, because of his mediocre constitution, it is still a flaw. A consolation prize is that Robert keeps his main weapon type on indoor maps. Thanks to that, he can operate like a foot archer indoors.
Overall, Robert is a growth-reliant unit who can barely contribute at base level. Players who do not want to waste time on training units will bench him. Crusader Scrolls and the Paragon Manual can help Robert catch up, though. Once he is trained, he can contribute with 2-range combat, but without training, he will never do much of note.
Personality and character
Robert is nondescript, and given no explicit personality traits. His ending suggests that he is timid and sheepish. His profile on the Thracia 776 website mentions he is a war orphan and that he has an attachment to Selphina. His supports suggest he also has some connection to Glade though the game never elaborates on it.
Robert, Bow Knight of Leonster
After his strong requests, Robert was put in the new Kingdom of Thracia’s royal guard. Robert himself was probably trying his best to be a legendary warrior, but he never could fix his timidity. Apparently, more than a few of the female servants in the castle found his sheepish nature cute.
