Opinion

He has balanced growths by default, but he may be benched by the time you get him, as you will have other useful characters to use. If you do train him, he sometimes does incredibly well, and sometimes not so great. It can be a manner of preference.

He has a rather limited range of classes and skills to acquire, so you may want to consider this too when it comes to children and inheritance. He has a few interesting support conversations, though.

Join Chrom, brother to Ylisse’s empress and commander of its forces, in a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. It’s your duty to guide a team of Ylisse’s finest soldiers - knights, mages, archers, and more - against the marauding Plegian bandits. To succeed, you will need to carefully choose the units you take into battle. As you lead your team through battles across maps that span entire kingdoms, your army will grow. Some characters are willing to join you quickly, while others may need more persuasion. Each character earns experience in battle, leveling up and gaining strength and abilities as they do so. It’s up to you to guide their moves, choose their weapons, and direct their attacks.
