Ss fe10 lucia trueblade.png
Lucia as a Trueblade in Radiant Dawn.

Peerless swordsmen whose total mastery of the blade fascinates all. They employ the skill Astra.




Shove, Critical +20, Astra

The Trueblade (Japanese: 剣聖ソードエスカトス Sword Eschatos) is an advanced sword-using class which debuted in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a rare third-tier promoted class and the final stage of the Myrmidon class, promoting from the Swordmaster class.

Being an advanced Swordmaster, the Trueblade continues the Myrmidon line's traditional stat build and takes it to its extreme conclusion. While their raw damage output is lower than the average due to their lesser strength, their skill and speed are immense and among the highest of any class, giving them great accuracy and a very high chance of double-attacking their foes and making them very efficient fighters. As a result of their high skill and their possession of a skill which grants them a significant critical bonus, Trueblades also inflict critical hits very frequently. They also make near-exclusive use of the iconic Astra skill, allowing them to land five consecutive blows on their target when the skill activates.

However, Trueblades are held back by their frailty, as their maximum HP, defense and resistance are all fairly low compared to other infantry classes. In addition, their sword-exclusive nature greatly limits their options for long-range attack. As with Swordmasters, Trueblades are most effective when their faults are mitigated through tactical use of terrain benefits to bolster their defenses and increase their avoid.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Trueblade --
Japanese 剣聖ソードエスカトス Officially romanized as Sword Eschatos in Radiant Dawn; literally translates as "sword saint". In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 剣聖), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. ソードエスカトス) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
In feudal Japanese culture, kensei (剣聖) was a title given to a swordfighter (剣士) of legendary skill. It is even higher in prestige than the title kengō (剣豪), which was bestowed upon great swordfighters.
The Radiant Dawn furigana/romanized name, Sword Eschatos, is taken from the Greek έσχατος eskhatos, "furthest" or "extreme", implying the class is the "greatest swordsman".
