Hey, squirt! Where's Chrom? I bet he had a rough time out there without ol' Teach and his trusty axe!
— Vaike

Vaike (Japanese: ヴェイク Wyck) is a character in Fire Emblem Awakening. He is a fighter. He is a member of Chrom's vigilante forces, and is a childhood friend of Chrom's, causing them to have a strong bond.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

Vaike first appears in the Shepherds garrison, introduced to Robin by Lissa. Maribelle makes fun of Vaike after he burps and calls him a "baseborn oaf", though Robin does not seem to mind Vaike's behavior. In Chapter 2: Shepherds, Vaike loses his axe at the start of the battle and goes the first turn without a weapon until Miriel finds it on the second turn and returns it. He accompanies The Shepherds throughout the game.

Personality and character

Vaike is an overconfident fighter who constantly refers to himself in the third person, using "The Vaike" and his alias "Teach". Vaike is also shown to make rash decisions and tends to lose his weapons often, and can be a little slow to recognize subtle jabs at him. He sees Chrom as a rival and student, challenging him any chance he can get, even if it is in the midst of a battle. In fact, Vaike tends to take the rest of his allies under his wing, wanting to train them to their full potential. Because of this, his allies have called his headstrong behavior commendable and he does truly care for his friends, even if he has a strange way of showing it.

Endings

Vaike, Zero to Hero (single ending)
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero. His unflinching self-assurance was the perfect medicine for the town's postwar squabbles, earning him the nickname "Brother Vaike."

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Robin, High Deliverer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Vaike, above all else.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Lissa, Sprightly Cleric
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was no match for Lissa, who fit in with the people instantly despite her royal upbringing.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Sully, Crimson Knight
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was no match for Sully, who dragged her poor husband on countless missions in the name of Ylisse.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. He lived out his days with Miriel, whose sharp mind and tongue refused to be dulled by any change of scenery.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. But people were fonder still of Maribelle, who worked tirelessly to win them equal rights in the eyes of the law.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Panne, Proud Taguel
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, the people were even fonder of Panne—and she, in turn, grew to love the town's wild and woolly nature.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Cordelia, Knight Paragon
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was never a match for Cordelia, whose shining talents and beauty tended to make her husband look dull.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Nowi, Eternal Youth
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, the children were even fonder of his wife, Nowi, who played with them every day and never seemed to age.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Tharja, Grim Stalker
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was no match for Tharja, whose frequent curse slinging put her husband in an understandably foul mood.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Olivia, Shrinking Violet
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, he was no match for his wife, Olivia, whose modest but mesmerizing dances made her more popular by far.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Cherche, Wyvern Friend
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. Still, the children were fonder of Cherche, who spent her time feeding and clothing orphans everywhere.
