Analysis

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

Cain joins in Chapter 9 and is extremely underleveled for his join time. With only level 2, putting him far away from promotion, and abysmal base stats for his join time, Cain requires significant investment to catch up with other units. He can only use lances outdoors and only swords indoors, preventing him from manipulating the weapon triangle. His weapon ranks are also very low; outdoors, he can use D rank lances, but indoors, he is restricted to E rank swords. This prevents him from using stronger weapons to circumvent his low stats, making it even harder to train him.

If Cain receives the significant investment he needs, he can grow into a competent combat unit. However, he requires more work than most other units in the game. Without favoritism, he is extremely underwhelming and typically benched at the first opportunity.

Personality and character

Cain is nondescript, and given no explicit personality traits. His ending, where he becomes known as the "Taciturn Tactician", suggests that he is a man of few words.
