Fire Emblem – Know Your Hero: Tailtiu

knowyourhero

Hello everyone, I am ChrisX and… well, this is something new.

As you might have mentioned in my old countdowns, Fire Emblem pops up quite a lot of time in my countdowns. What can I say, I love the series. It houses a lot of memorable and interesting characters, though some of them may be a miss. It was enough that back in the old days of the old Chaos Theatre forums, I made a list of favorite characters from the game… that are not Lords. For the sake of variety and making sure the Lords did not oversaturate the spotlight.

One of the creeds of the series is ‘Together We Ride’. Which means that you can’t fight your battles alone. Sometimes, a one-man army can be produced, but without a strong support from other capable fighters, the whole army will crumble. And amongst these armies are colorful individuals that I think can be REALLY interesting to look into.

So here we are. Time to talk about characters from Fire Emblem, what they’re like in the game, be it personality or performance… and my opinion on them. Yeah, regardless of the title, this is just a writing based on my opinion. But I hope my opinion can be enlightening.

And for our first subject of talking… Let’s take a look of one of the characters that just made it to Fire Emblem Heroes, the Thunder Noble, Tailtiu.

Top 10 Video Game Wind Masters

Hello everyone, it’s ChrisX in another countdown about the elements. Well, I already did my favorite element. So… let’s see what’s next… Ah yes. A blizzard is a common usage of the element of ice, a storm of snows. By that, it’s not formed with solely just ice. Another element is in use of that, and it’s called the Wind.

One of the four cardinal elements in many stories, the Wind give a great emphasis on speed and freedom, those who wield the element of winds are either someone who can’t be kept down while they zip around the field with ease. In addition of that, there are grace to be found within manipulations of winds. But that is not to be underestimated, the wind contain enough great power to even shape the land itself. Want proof? Try near on a tornado and see if you can stand your ground.

(P.S: I’m only joking on the tornado. Don’t ever try this!)

Unlike most other elements, the wind is formless and with it, it can take on many forms which can be used to protect or strike the enemies, usually by sending them aside or upwards, or sometimes used in conjunction of storms to devastate their enemies. This is the list of the 10 masters of wind in video games that I think utilizes the best of the element in addition of having enough sense of freedom to embody the spirit of wind.

Yes, 10. It isn’t my birthday and it isn’t my favorite element.

That said, same rules apply. Only from games I played and only one per franchise. Welp, time to breeze through the list! This is…
