Fire Emblem Engage Introduces Four Hounds Members Griss & Mauvier; Friendly Thief, Yunaka

The official Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter account has been introducing new characters for the recently announced Fire Emblem Engage, alongside sharing new gameplay clips. Today, characters Griss, Mauvier, and Yunaka were presented.

NOTE: Some names and terms might differ in the official English localization.

Griss is the third member of the Four Hounds we’ve been introduced to, with the other two being Zephia and Marni. He is a genuinely deranged magician, also unquestionably mad and violent. However, he appears to strike with even greater ferocity when battling foes with considerable power. Further, despite his awful traits, he seemingly has a semblance of loyalty since he trusts the Four Hounds’ leader, Zephia.

Mauvier is the final member of the Four Hounds, who greatly contrasts Griss, as he’s described as straightforward, faithful, and sincere. Still, can you really be level-headed when working within this troubling group?

Yunaka is a mysterious, strange girl players will meet throughout their travels. She’s cheerful, energetic, and bright, quickly getting along with people she meets, thanks to those traits. Plus, she’s looking for some manner of a lost item. Yunaka’s initial class is Thief, enabling her to pick locks and take foes by surprise due to her agility.

Additionally, users of this class utilize daggers, weapons capable of inflicting poison. Those afflicted with this status ailment take greater damage when physically struck, also enhancing the posion’s effectiveness. Antidotes and Restore Staves are the only stated items that can remedy this dangerous effect.

Griss and Mauvier have both received one conversation clip, while Yunaka has gotten one of those as well as a gameplay clip. You can view this newly revealed footage of Fire Emblem Engage below:
