You honestly don't remember? It's me, Silas! We were best friends as children.
— Silas, to Corrin

Silas (Japanese: サイラス Silas) is a character in Fire Emblem Fates. He is a cavalier from Nohr, who knew Corrin for a short time in their childhood. Silas accompanies Corrin regardless of their decision.



Silas first appears in Chapter 7, leading an assault on Fort Jinya on orders from King Garon. He is shocked to find Corrin leading the defense of the fort, but continues his attack despite this.

Ultimately, Silas and the Nohrians' attack is repelled. Defeated by Corrin, he states that he is ready to be executed, but Corrin refuses, wondering how the two know each other. Silas explained about their childhood together until his banishment. Corrin vaguely remembers him, but nonetheless decides to spare him and Silas decides to follow his best friend and joins the Hoshidan army and helps Corrin settle an age-old conflict shared between Hoshido and Nohr.


Silas first appears in Chapter 7, helping Corrin on their trial with Elise through the Woods of the Forlorn on Xander's orders. Silas subsequently aids Corrin's effort to put an end to the age-old conflict shared between Hoshido and Nohr.


Unlike the first two routes, Silas does not appear until later in Chapter 14, where like in Birthright, he was ordered by Garon to kill Corrin, but when crossing blades, Silas could not bring himself to kill his best friend and Corrin notices his hesitation. After the battle, after telling their childhood story of their picnic, Corrin suddenly remembers Silas. Needing all the help they can get, Corrin asks Silas to join their cause which he gladly accepts and helps Corrin to put an end to Anankos' machinations.

Fire Emblem Fates


Silas is a playable character in all three paths. He also appears as the boss in Chapters 7 of Birthright and 14 of Revelation.

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

Silas is a Cavalier, and one of few units that is available in all three routes of Fates; he joins in chapter 7 of both Birthright and Conquest, and chapter 14 of Revelation. His base stats vary significantly between each path, though in general, he has a balanced stat spread and growth rates, with below-average speed and an emphasis on strength and defense. Though his combat capabilities can be somewhat inconsistent, he can still be a very helpful unit thanks to his utility as a mounted unit.

Silas's below-average speed keeps him from reliably doubling for quite some time at base, though his combination of good strength and the skill Elbow Room allow him to deal strong enough damage to at least 2RKO a good number of enemies. His high movement is a great boon, allowing him to reach key points quickly, or to ferry other units to them. It also lets him easily position himself for Dual Strikes, which he can take advantage of to score ORKOs he might not otherwise achieve. Later on he will learn Shelter, a useful skill that can allow him to perform similar Rescue-drop strategies that were possible in earlier games. It can also allow for more risky strategies with Azura, as she can potentially sing for someone in attack range, then be protected by Silas's good defenses. Vow of Friendship is an interesting personal skill that greatly boosts both his offense and defense, though it is limited in that it requires Corrin to be below a specific HP threshold; if Corrin hasn't been reclassed, they can use the Dragonstone to raise their bulk and also chip enemies for the rest of your units, combining well with Silas' personal skill.

Silas will typically want to promote to Paladin instead of Great Knight for its enhanced mobility. In addition, its better speed bonus along with the skill Defender will allow Silas to hit doubling thresholds more reliably. While sending him into Great Knight may seem like a good option to obtain Luna, Luna is an unreliable chance to possibly kill an enemy, which could expose Silas or any allies near him to more enemies.

Silas's reclass tree, Mercenary, can provide several interesting options. It is not typically worth switching to completely as it has significantly lower strength and mobility, but its promotions and skills can be quite useful. Strong Riposte in particular boosts his damage even further on enemy phase, and Sol is a very good offensive skill that can greatly improve his survivability. Bow Knight can be a worthwhile alternative to Paladin, as it is notably faster and has more reliable ranged options in the form of bows, also giving him an advantage against enemy fliers. On the Conquest route, Bow Knight's Shurikenbreaker is also worth serious consideration due to the extremely dangerous dagger units wielding Inevitable End in Chapter 25 and the Endgame.

Silas is additionally effective at supporting others, as he offers generally useful pair up bonuses, in strength and both defenses, and later movement. In addition, Cavalier is a valuable class line, making his status as one even more valuable, as it means he can pass it to other units via supports. Ryoma in particular can make great use of this class line, as it provides him more mobility and bulk, the only two areas that Ryoma is noticeably lacking in. Silas himself can also benefit from a support with Kaze; Kaze can improve Silas's speed through pair up to allow him to better take advantage of his high strength, and he can also pass down Ninja to him—this would have him trade off his mobility in favor of giving him reliable 1-2 range and better speed, also potentially improving his combat.

One great alternative class option is Master Ninja, which is accessed through his A+ support with Kaze. If paired with Sol, it can make Silas a reliable enemy phase tank. What sets Sol apart from other combat skills such as Astra is that it's significantly more reliable than them, and there is no potential drawback to it activating. Guard Stance has 10 increments, and every attack delivered or received fills it up by two. Once it's filled up to ten, Silas is guaranteed to not have to take a hit, meaning that if he's facing a horde of enemies, assuming he's doubling all of these enemies, he'll block every third attack. In those three rounds of combat, he'll make six attacks; assuming his skill stat is 30, on average, he will activate Sol on two of those six attacks, greatly increasing his survivability before accounting for any chances of the enemy missing their attack. If his defense, speed, skill, and strength are raised through tonics and pair-ups, the chances of him dying in many situations are astronomically low.

In Birthright, Silas is the only Cavalier available outside of reclassing; this additionally makes him the only unit capable of performing Shelter strategies. It also gives him a niche in helping with defeat the boss chapters, as he can take advantage of his high mobility to ferry stronger units to the bosses to kill them in few turns, though this is somewhat more limited when compared to Birthright's flying units. He starts with a C in swords and D in lances, granting him immediate access to Javelins and useful swords such as the Dual Katana. His high raw attack with the Steel Sword also allows him to OHKO frailer enemies early on. His earlygame performance in general is solid, being readily capable of eliminating enemies by taking advantage of Dual Strikes. Silas's combat will likely falter as the game goes on and enemy density becomes greater and greater, necessitating reliable 1-2 range that Silas lacks. Either way, Silas can always offer offer his mounted utility alongside good pair up bonuses for frontline units.

In Conquest, despite joining at the same level, he unusually has lower weapon levels than he does in Birthright, denying him use of the Javelin and utility swords at base. Despite this, he remains useful early on, as he is able to take good advantage of his movement to help with Conquest's more varied objective types. In chapter 8, he can easily reach the villages before reinforcements can be called from them, and has the bulk to survive a few physical blows on his way. His ability to take advantage of Dual Strikes can also be quite helpful in chapter 10, as it can allow him clean up more enemies by effectively extending the player phase of strong units like Effie and Camilla. Movement in general is a very handy facet to have in Conquest, as it features many objectives and side objectives that incentivize moving fast. Silas's lategame performance will likely falter, as his stats will not be enough to ORKO its enemies, though he can secure a strong midgame by promoting into Paladin early on. Later on, he can continue to be useful as more of a support unit.

Revelation is easily Silas's strongest outing. Here, he comes with massively increased stats, most notably his very high HP, great strength and defense, and capped weapon levels. His weapon levels mean he can immediately use the Silver Sword obtained in his join chapter, giving him some of the highest raw damage output at base of any unit in Revelation outside of the royals. It also allows him to use nearly any utility weapon he might want, such as the Armorslayer or Spear. Moreover, as he starts at level 18, he can immediately be promoted. With a promotion and a single Arms Scroll, Silas will already be capable of wielding the Brave Sword and Brave Lance, which greatly help mitigate his low speed and allow him to ORKO many enemies; however, this is limited by said weapons only becoming available around chapter 21. Though his join time is late compared to his other outings, here he is a very reliable combat unit that is useful immediately and will likely stay useful through the rest of the path.

Fire Emblem Heroes


Silas is one of the characters added to the game in the A Way Home update, and became available for summoning by players on September 14, 2018. Only one variation of Silas is currently available in Heroes, based on his Fates incarnation.
