Opinion

Tharja seems to be the end-all-be-all of units, popular up there with Lucina and Cordelia, even.

As a Dark Mage and Sorcerer, her Defense will be on the rise along with her Magic and Speed, making her a very capable armor-killer unit, and surprisingly weak against magic due to low Resistance that comes with it.

Henry, the other dark mage, actually worked out better for me in playthroughs, so it may come down to which Dark Mage you prefer to use.

Her personality can be creepy, but it seems her attachment to your Avatar and rather odd nature makes her oddly popular.

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.
