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

Vander is a prepromoted, highly powerful early-game unit. He has high movement; solid bulk compared to other early-game units, who are typically defeated in two hits; and his offense is good enough to deal significant damage, but not so good as to one-shot (unless he crits), allowing him to reliably set up kills for other units. This spread of stats enables Vander to bait enemies while allowing other units gain experience; he makes the first five or six chapter much easier, at which point other units start to surpass him. Vander can typically still contribute enough to earn a deployment slot until Chapter 8.

Vander has two obstacles to effectively setting up kills. Firstly, his hit rates can be poor; this can be easily rectified with a hit bonus engrave on an axe, or by inheriting Hit +10 from Sigurd—most other units would benefit more from saving SP for better skills, but as Vander's long-term usefulness is limited, he is better served by a weaker, more immediately beneficial skill. Secondly, his personal skill, Alabaster Duty, makes him more likely to crit when next to Alear, which reduces how reliably Vander can set up kills for other units; though it is only a minor detriment if Vander kills a few units, continually doing so will inhibit other units' growths.

Vander has little long-term potential. While his growths are not bad, his high internal level limits his experience gain until the point were many other units have already surpassed him. Vander provides the most long-term benefit through non-combat utility—such as using staves—though there are many other units more capable at providing such utility.

Personality and character

Vander is serious and strict, and puts his role as guardian first.[2]


Holy Veteran Vander
After the Divine Dragon Monarch took the throne, Vander ceded his role as steward, choosing to live as a knight on the Somniel.
The new monarch and his/her friends visited Vander often. He always met the group with a smile, as he took great joy in remembering their journey.

Divine Dragon Alear & Holy Veteran Vander
Alear became the new Divine Dragon Monarch. His/Her bonds with the rulers of each nation resulted in lasting peace.
Though Vander ceded his post as steward after the war, his loyal, if rigid, way of watching over the Divine Dragon Monarch did not change for the rest of his days.

Battle quotes

Corrupted Luemra: It's been a little while, Vander.
Vander: Queen Lumera, I cannot believe we have a chance to speak once more. I apologize for failing in my duty as your protector. And I pray you'll forgive me for defeating you here.
Corrupted Lumera: Vander, you are my child's knight—you must fill that role as best you can. Attack me with all your might.
Vander: ...I wish we could returned to that day, before all of this. If we could go back there, to that courtyard, I would... No. Even if I might take that selfish moment, my duty stands. I must stop you here, today. Prepare yourself, Queen Lumera!

— Vander fighting Corrupted Lumera in Chapter 25.
Divine One... Should I fall here, know I am proud to die as your guardian knight.
— Vander in Chapter 26.
