Fire Emblem Engage Recruitment Guide

Fire Emblem Engage Recruitment Guide Screenshot

Recruitment in Fire Emblem Engage is far less complicated when compared with Fire Emblem: Three Houses. With no branching paths, stat or skill requirements, there are hardly any missable characters to recruit in what is a largely linear entry in the long-running tactical role-playing series.

You will recruit most characters through normal story progression, but what you will want to look out for is any Paralogues as they become available and any temporary allies that Alear will need to speak to mid-battle.

We found that there were five characters that we are led to believe are missable – Jean, Anna, Jade, Lindon and Saphir – if you don’t complete their respective Paralogues. You can see where these first become available in the list below, as well as the story battles in which Alear must talk to Jade, Lindon and Saphir to recruit them.

You needn’t worry about the 12 Emblem Ring characters, as these are unmissable and will all be obtained from your continued progression through the game’s storyline.

Warning: Please be aware that the list below will contain story-related spoilers and the characters that you can recruit, and therefore carries the risk that it could ruin Fire Emblem Engage’s many twists and turns if you are still on your first playthrough.
