At the beginning of the game, players create a playable Avatar ("My
Unit" in the Japanese version), who serves as one of the game's main
characters alongside Chrom.
Choice between Male or Female. Affects your Avatar's appearance and
determines which characters they can marry.
For each gender, you can choose from 3 builds, 5 faces (per build),
5 hairstyles (per build), 20 hair colours and 3 voices. The
appearance options are reflected in your Avatar's 2D portrait, map
sprite and 3D battle model; for some sample Avatar appearances,
please check this page.
Your Avatar's voice is used to determine their voice during combat,
as well as their manner of speech in the dialogue. (In the Japanese
version, there are 5 voices, including a "silent" option--picking
this reduces your Avatar to a classic silent protagonist.)
You can decide your Avatar's name (default name is "Robin"), birth
month, birth day, Asset (best stat) and Flaw (worst stat).
Your Avatar always begins as a Tactician, but they can use a Second Seal to change to
almost every regular class.
Tactician, Cavalier, Knight, Myrmidon, Mercenary, Fighter (male
only), Barbarian (male only), Archer, Thief, Pegasus Knight (female
only), Wyvern Rider, Mage, Dark Mage, Priest/Cleric, Troubadour
(female only) and the corresponding promoted classes, when at the
Support and marriage
Your Avatar can supportevery playable
character (except the legacy characters from SpotPass and DLC) and
marry any playable character of the opposite gender upon reaching an
"S" support level.
You can recruit other player's Avatar via StreetPass. Additionally, you
can register your Avatars in the "Avatar Logbook" and summon them to
other save files. These Guest Avatars are treated as bonus
characters, like the legacy characters, and thus cannot support. (Last updated: 24th May 2013)
