Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright


Nathan Garvin

Raw Talent.

Ryoma’s son, raised in the Deeprealms. Thinks of his father as both role model and rival. Friendly, but intensely competitive. Sometimes gets in over his head. Great at arm wrestling.

Spear Fighter Samurai

Shiro most definitely inherited Ryoma’s great stat distribution. In exchange for having absolutely zero magic, he gets to have fantastic health and strength, average speed, and great defenses despite his great strength! There is no reason not to use Shiro. Having Samurai as his innate secondary class is really great too. Shiro is a great self-contained unit who innately already has every tool necessary to excel, just like his father. The only thing his father can on-up him on is the fact that he has the Rajinto and Shiro doesn’t!

Shiro requires very little work to get off the ground and will be very relevant to your army as the only other automatic Spear Fighter aside from Oboro. He is one of the best child units and will serve you well.
