— Amid, to Jake

Amid (Japanese: アミッド Amid) is a scion of Grannvale's House Friege, and the son of its late Lady Ethnia. He was raised in Silesse, left behind when his uncle Bloom came to abduct his mother and his sister Linda, eventually setting out to travel south upon hearing rumors of Linda's presence in Ulster. Travelling with the Pegasus Knight Fee/Hermina, he joined Seliph's liberation army in Isaach while en route to Ulster.

Amid is Arthur's substitute character, filling Arthur's role in the story and gameplay if Tailtiu died or failed to be married in the course of the first generation.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

During their journey to Ulster, Amid and Fee/Hermina made a stop to give her pegasus a rest near Isaach Castle in the middle of the fight between Seliph's group and Danann's army. When Fee/Hermina told him her story of wanting to join Seliph's army, he volunteered to join it too.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Amid joins in Chapter 6 as a level 2 Wind Mage. His base stats are better than Arthur's average stats. The difference is especially visible in speed, but also in defensive stats. Amid also has Adept, giving him a chance to attack twice in a row based on his attack speed. Since he wields a Wind tome, the lightest basic tome in Genealogy, his attack speed will be solid, giving him a decent activation rate. However, Amid does not have Follow-Up, so he cannot double enemies reliably.

Amid's growths will always be worse than Arthur's. Like many other substitute units, he requires more resources to keep up and be good at combat. Unlike Arthur, he also never becomes mounted, since he promotes to War Mage and not Mage Knight. While War Mage has better statistical bonuses, the movement disparity makes it inferior.

Since Amid lacks Follow-Up, giving it to him through the Follow-Up Ring significantly improves his combat performance. As long as he uses lightweight tomes, he will be able to double most enemies. He can use the Leg Ring to keep up with mounted units, but it is a very competitive item. Amid can also use other rings to improve his stats, but they are limited resources. Since Amid will not face much combat due to being unmounted, giving him rings is usually suboptimal.

Without investment, Amid is a mediocre, foot-locked combat unit with no utility. Even among substitute units, he is average. With investment, he can become competent at combat, but will never do amazing things.

Personality and character

Though others easily get the opposite impression as a result of his sarcastic tendencies, Amid is kind and helpful even to complete strangers, as evidence by his asssistance of Jake when he encountered him lost in the Munster District.[1] He possesses a strong disdain for the Friege family as a whole for their abduction of Ethnia and Linda.[2]
