— Ronan

(Japanese: ロナン Ronan) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a fisherman from Iss, a coastal Thracian village. He has taken up the bow to fight against Lifis's pirates.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776


Ronan joins the Fiana Freeblades with the goal of wiping out Lifis and his bandits, who have attacked the village of Iss. He does this despite never having entered battle before.[2]

Ronan accompanies Leif's liberation army until at least the liberation of Manster. 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.

As with most of the rest of Leif's party, Ronan is forced to temporarily leave after Chapter 3, if he is still alive and has not been captured at that point. He automatically rejoins the party at the beginning of Chapter 8.

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

Ronan is your second archer, and also one of the strangest units in the game. He has a respectable speed base and high skill and speed growths. However, his strength growth is extremely low, at a mere 15%, while his magic growth is unusually high at 55%. Unfortunately, his high magic is mostly useless with its only utility being that it can help him take better hits from mages. Ronan's poor strength growth, low strength base, and unimpressive PCC means he will have trouble reliably killing enemies. Furthermore, he is bowlocked, which means he cannot counter enemies at 1 range or capture enemies. Because of this, he is arguably one of the worst combat units in the game.

Still, Ronan does have some redeemable qualities in combat. He has the Adept skill, which gives him a chance to attack consecutively, as well as a relatively high number of movement stars at 3. Ronan will also have slightly better base stats than Tanya when you recruit him. This makes him useful for doing chip damage in the earlygame chapters to help units such as Leif get kills.

Aside from this, Ronan has a high movement base of 7 and 3 action stars, giving him a 15% chance to take a second turn. This makes him useful in indoor chapters where a unit with high movement can quickly rescue characters or grab chests, such as in Chapter 3 or Chapter 24. If the player decides to deploy him for his movement abilities, they should be careful to keep him out of harm's way, as his bad HP and Defense means he can be easily killed by enemies.

If the player is willing to use Ronan as a combat unit, they may give him scrolls that improve his strength, like the Hezul scroll. Unfortunately, the Njörun scroll, which would benefit him the most, comes far too late to be of any use.

Personality and character

Ronan has very few lines of dialogue, but he is frustrated with the raids of Lifis and his pirates enough to join the Fiana Freeblades. Judging from his death and escape quotes, he also seems to care about his fellow soldiers and his mother.

Curiously, if Lifis joins Leif's group Ronan never comments on this. This appears to be due to a lack of dialogue written for Ronan, and not that he no longer hates Lifis.
