The prince of Altea, Marth. After defeating the evil sorcerer Gharnef and the dark dragon Medeus, Marth returned to his homeland where he was praised as the Hero-King. He later married his love Caeda and ruled over Altea. Marth first appeared in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light as well as Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, which were only released in Japan.
The western audience first found out about Marth from his inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and he has since stayed as a veteran fighter. He is very agile which makes his air game quite deadly if you underestimate him. Wielding the divine blade Falchion, Marth is a fast swordfighter, placing most of his strength into the tip of his sword, which makes him a dangerous fighter for those at a distance.
