Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright


Nathan Garvin

Devoted Servant.

A multitalented Nohrian butler who serves Corrin at home and on the battlefield. While generally cool toward others, he took a vow of absolute loyalty to Corrin. Not a morning person.

Butler Troubadour, Cavalier

Similar to Felicia, Jakob is useful if you are female Corrin, but will feel rather redundant if you are male Corrin since you already have Felicia.

Jakob is more physically oriented than Felicia. He has enough Magic to get by, but is unlikely to be fulfilling enough to be your primary healer due to his lackluster Magic. He does fulfill the Butler role better than Felicia as a Maid due to his higher Strength, meaning he can actually get in kills and defend himself with his Daggers.
