Appearance(s)

Seth (Japanese: ゼト Seth) is a character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is under the player's control at the very start of the game, in the prologue. After the fall of Renais, he takes Eirika to safety and becomes her most trusted knight.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Role

In the beginning of the game, King Fado of Renais is in the throne room with Eirika, Seth, and several guards. A messenger comes stating that the castle is under attack by Grado, and so he commands Seth to take Eirika out of the castle. Although she is safe, the two then encounter some enemies. Seth remains as Eirika's trusted knight for the rest of the story, and plays a role as a kind of tactician, similar to Marcus of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade or Malledus of Shadow Dragon.

Analysis

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

Seth is widely considered to be the most powerful unit in the entire Fire Emblem series. His only real competition for this title is Sigurd from Genealogy of the Holy War, who lacks a reliable option for fighting at range and is permanently removed from the player's control at the end of Chapter 5 of that game. Seth has very high base stats; 30 HP, 14 Str, 12 Spd, 11 Def, 8 Res, and A ranks in both lances and swords allow him to dominate the early portions of the game. His growths are serviceable enough to keep him relevant throughout the entirety of the game; while he will end up slightly inferior to the other cavalry at 20/20, the rest of your army will be all the stronger for the experience the player doesn't have to invest in him. Seth also has a mount, allowing him to traverse the battlefield with little issues and rescue units in danger. Other positives include his near-perfect availability (only missing out on Chapter 5x) and his supports with important and valuable units such as Eirika and Cormag.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

Seth is playable as a SpotPass character, released in the The Sacred Stones character set. Seth is also present as an enemy in the second and third installments of the Smash Brethren DLC series.

Personality and character

Seth is a truly loyal knight to the main characters of the story. He serves Eirika and Ephraim willingly and protects them on their journeys. In the beginning of the game, he is ordered by King Fado to take Eirika out of the palace. He acts as something of a guide or mentor for the protagonists throughout the game.

In his C-Support conversation with Eirika, it is revealed that he deliberately ignores pain and injury he suffers during battle to keep her mind at rest.

Endings

Seth, the Silver Knight
Seth returned to Renais with Ephraim and his fellow knights. His dedicated service made him the most trusted of the new king and queen's guardsmen, as well as the most famous of knights in all of Renais.

Eirika and Seth
Upon their return to Renais, Eirika and Seth were wed, with the blessings of Ephraim and all of the Knights of Renais. The tale of the love that grew between a princess and her loyal knight became a beloved romance in Renais.

Seth and Natasha
Natasha returned to Renais with Seth, where the two were wed. The reconstruction of Renais kept them busy, but when all the work was done, they settled down to live their days in peace and happiness.
