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

Sin appears in Chapter 9 as an enemy and can be recruited by Sue. As a Nomad, Sin has access to bows, as well as having one of the best aid/con distributions in the game and lesser penalties in forests than regular mounted units. His 7 Con makes him lose two points of Speed while using Steel Bows before promotion, but unlike Sue, he does not lose Speed from using Killer Bows, though both units have a good Speed growth, making their Con problems very insignificant. His main disadvantage is the lack of 1-2 range, as well as bad defensive stats, but he shares this trait with all archers. He starts with 7 defense (8 in Hard Mode) as well as 0 Resistance (1 in Hard Mode) and 24 HP (29 in Hard Mode, but his HP growth is very solid with 75%), though his base Speed of 10 (14 in Hard Mode) as well as a 50% growth on the stat may make him very dodgy against inaccurate weapons like axes and some lances. His combat is decent against most non-armored units, as he is very frequently able to double most non-fast units such as fighters, archers and magic users, but one may want to give him a better bow than the Short Bow (he performs well with the Killer Bow, since its good Hit and Might can help taking down some enemies, along with its good crit chance). His offensive growths and bases are very good, with 7 Strength, 8 Skill and 10 Speed (9, 11 and 14 on Hard Mode), 45% Strength and 50% Skill and Speed. His Luck is also low, so he may face crit against some more skilled enemies and considerable chances against Killer weapons.

Since Nomads tend to have lower Con than other mounted units, Sin can carry pretty much any character in the game (except for Merlinus for obvious reasons), even some promoted units which are hard to carry with flying units such as Gonzalez (as a curious fact, Sin can carry a promoted Barthe as an unpromoted Nomad).

His Ice Affinity is a defensive one, and he can be paired with Sue, as she has the Wind affinity, giving him some attack, accuracy, critical and critical evade, though it takes them 15 turns together in order to get to C rank. His support with Dayan is faster, but Dayan joins later and may not join your team if you are going to Ilia, and grants him similar attack, in addition to avoid and critical dodge. His other Supports are slower, and since Fir and Dorothy are both foot-locked units, it may take some time before their Support grow and it may hamper Sin's usefulness. His Support with Zeiss is also very slow but it can give good avoid and critical chance, though Zeiss, as a flying unit, tends to go into places which are hard to reach by mounted units.

His promotion to Nomadic Trooper gives him E Swords, giving him a way to attack with 1 range, but bear in mind that it will take quite some time before he starts to use better swords such as Killing Edges. His most notable promotion gain is a +5 to HP, which really helps his bad defensive stats a little, and he also receives boosts to his offensive stats.

In Hard Mode, Sin's bases are a lot better. His boosts aren't quite as insane as Miledy's or Rutger's, but they give him a nice head start over the other bow units, as his superior bases make him better than both Wolt and Dorothy, who suffer from bad movement and bad base stats.

It is worth noting that if Sue and Sin have more combined experience than Shanna and Thea, the player will proceed to Sacae for chapters 17-20, while if Shanna and Thea have more experience, the player will proceed to Ilia. One doesn't need to necessarily train both units in order to go Sacae; they only need to make sure that Sin and Sue's summed up level are bigger than Shanna and Thea's.

Overall, Sin is a good combat unit, even better on Hard Mode because of the bonuses, and his Aid can really help some of the bigger guys. He is pretty frail in the beginning, but his HP growth will eventually give him decent bulk along with good avoid because of his Speed, and he will be a good candidate for the Mulagir in the endgame.
