Trec (Japanese: トレック Trec) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He first appears in Chapter 7. He is a lax Ilian mercenary who, alongside Noah, is part of Lord Zelot's squad.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Role

Trec is a simple mercenary from Ilia, working in Lord Zelot's squad. Some time before the game's events, he is chosen to accompany his captain to Ostia, where they are to fight for Lycia against Bern. However, once they reach the march, they discover that the Ostian leader has died and a rebellion aims to surrender the city -and Lycia's remaining forces- to Bern. They refuse to work for the rebels; once Roy's army reaches the city, Zelot and Trec immediately enter the battlefield to help them, being accepted by Roy after talking to the young lord. Together with his captain and his friend Noah, Trec works for Roy during the whole campaign.

After Bern is defeated and the war is over, Trec keeps working -and falling asleep whenever possible- in Zelot's mercenary group. Although he does not talk about his performance as a mercenary, the stories about his prowess are well known.

Analysis

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

Trec joins in Chapter 7 as a level 4 Cavalier. His class is his greatest advantage. Cavalier is among the best unpromoted classes in The Binding Blade. With high movement, Canto, rescue-drop utility and access to two weapon types, it is both mobile and versatile.

Trec's greatest issue is mediocrity. While there is rarely a downside to deploying more mounted units, Trec has no advantages over his peers. His stats will be comparable to or worse than Alen and Lance's, and mediocre by themselves. Trec's standout stat is defense, but it is only 1 higher than Noah's and 2 higher than Alen and Lance's. He is also too slow to double enemies and faster foes will double him instead.

Trec's base weapon ranks are terrible - E-rank swords and D-rank lances. Alen and Lance joined with these weapon ranks in Chapter 1, and Trec joins in chapter 7. Noah, who joins in the same chapter as Trec, has a base C-rank in swords and D-rank in lances. Having a good sword rank is helpful in the Western Isles, and Trec does not have it.

Trec also joins at a low base level of 4, and once again compares poorly to his peers in that aspect. Noah's base level is higher by 3, and a trained Alen/Lance will also be closer to promotion. This is important, because the Paladin promotion is among the best promotions in the game. It grants +1 weapon rank in swords and lances, +1 movement, significant increases to all stats, and E-rank axes. This promotion improves Trec's mediocre stats, making him a much better unit, but getting him there is time-consuming, because he must gain at least 6 levels.

Even if Trec reaches level 10, he may remain unpromoted. The Knight Crest is among the most competitive promotion items in the game. Alen, Lance, and Noah all gain a lot from promoting, and they all have advantages over Trec. This leaves Trec in a poor spot. There are few Knight Crests available early on, and all three other Cavaliers are better candidates for promotion. Their stats and weapon ranks are better, and they reach level 10 more easily.

With that all said, Trec is still a solid filler combat unit. Despite his disadvantages compared to his peers, he is still a better deployment choice than many other units by merit of his class alone. He has movement higher than infantry, and having two weapon types allows him to manipulate the weapon triangle. He does not even have to fight to be useful, because he has rescue-drop utility - he can carry Roy to the seize point, for instance.
