Trec (Japanese: トレック Trec) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He first appears in Chapter 7. He is a lax Ilian mercenary knight who, alongside Noah, is part of Lord Zelot' squad.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade


Trec is a simple mercenary from Ilia, working in Lord Zelot' squad. Some time before the game's events, he is chosen to accompany his captain to Ostia, where they are to fight for Lycia against Bern. However, once they reach the march, they discover that the Ostian leader has died and a rebellion aims to surrender the city -and Lycia's remaining forces- to Bern. They refuse to work for the rebels; once Roy's army reaches the city, Zelot and Trec immediately enter the battlefield to help them, being accepted by Roy after talking to the young lord. Together with his captain and his friend Noah, Trec works for Roy during the whole campaign.

After Bern is defeated and the war is over, Trec keeps working -and falling asleep whenever possible- in Zelot' mercenary group. Although he does not talk about his performance as a mercenary, the stories about his prowess are well known.

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

Trec is the third cavalier you get in The Binding Blade and joins alongside Zelot as a green unit. Trec is in a rather unfortunate position, as he joins in chapter 7 which is arguably the hardest chapter in the game, while being underleveled and coming with bad bases and weapon levels. He can die very easily and it's quite risky to get to him, so he's often the reason why so many players find chapter 7 to be RNG based, though it is possible to rescue chain Roy to Zelot by turn 2 and safely recruit both of them. It's almost cruel to compare him to Alen and Lance as his bases aren't even that much better than theirs and their growths are pretty equal overall, Trec mostly focusing on defense. Trec does have better growths than Noah, but he lacks Noah's C rank in swords and higher bases which gives Noah at least some kind of niche over the Christmas cavaliers. His weapon levels are horrible too, joining with the same weapon levels as the Christmas cavs, despite both of them likely having reached D rank in swords and C rank in lances by this point. Another problem with Trec is his mediocre speed and skill, it will take a while for him to start doubling consistently and the low hit rates of weapons in The Binding Blade make his 30% skill growth a notable flaw. Still, Trec does have to offer valuable mounted utility, which is quite useful in the large maps of The Binding Blade, however many much better units such as the Christmas cavs, Shanna, Zelot, Clarine, Noah and even Sue posses a mount, while also offering better combat or some other form of utility over Trec. If the player is determined to use Trec, he benefits greatly from an early promotion, allowing him to function as a more defense oriented paladin, although he we mostly be a filler combat unit and there's little reason to give him the first Knight Crest and stat-boosting items instead of giving it to better candidates.

Treck, Peaceful Knight
Short: Continued life as a mercenary knight.

Long: Trec remained in Zelot's group, where he continued to fight as a mercenary. Although he always was sleeping half the time, in battle, he would demolish all those who dared stand in his path. Trec himself never talked about his performance, but stories about him reached the ears of many.
