The Copy Cat Mercenaries.
Posted July 22, 2007on:
within the series of fire emblem there are many different look alike,or sometimes act alike characters.the most note able of these would be the griel mercenaries and the gerik mercenaries.
…what? no I don’t think their the same cause their both mercenaries! don’t be ridiculous! its because they both have shoulder pads =p .but if that’s not proof enough to call them look alikes,which it should be mind you,look at some of the other evidence.
first of all,gerik and griel have a very strong resemblance as far as looks go.they are both very strong looking,and are both well known for being powerful warriors.both have similar colors as far as their clothing and armor go as well,showing that perhaps one leached off of the other (hint hint).in addition,they are both the leaders of a mercenary guild…something that isnt exactly easy to brush off as coincidence.and lastly,consider how similar their names are to each other 😉 .I would say sir griel wants to copy gerik.or is it perhaps that gerik entrusted his last wish with griel of becoming a famous mercenary 😕 ? either way its kind of suspicious.
next lets look in the assistants department,starting with gerik.he did, by all accounts, start the mercenary thing first.so who is gerik’s right hand man? who among his group is the closest to him? I mean that literally,too! who is often seen clinging to him!? that would be the red haired dancer with the screwed up character portrait,tethys.she is pretty much the second in command in the gerik’s mercenaries since she is always by geriks side,more then anybody.odds are she helps gerik make a few desicions too.that,at least in my opinion,sounds like a second in comand.now for griel,same questions; whose his right hand man? ,whose the closest to him? ,and whose often seen clinging to him? well…no one if you count that last on 😦 .but ignoring it, who would the person be? it would be the red haired paladin with the screwed up face,titania! now for some comparisons;they both have red hair,they both wear white,they both dance,they are both closest to their respective mercenary guilds leader,they both have a crush on their respective mercenary guilds leader,they can both fly,and they both start with a “T” . …ok,I threw in a few fillers,but the resemblance in uncanny,no 😉 ? again,I would say titania is copying tethys…or perhaps tethys always wanted a horse…? :
with that,it is possible that nintendo liked the whole mercenary theme invented in sacred stones,but decided that sacred stones didn’t give it the attention it deserved.to solve their problem they made the greil mercenaries,and this time devoted most of a game to them.
so is griel guilty of copy-right infragment? is titania a dancer in training? well…the first ones probably true anyways.but this begs an even greater question…is gerik guilty of copying anybody??? eh…lets leave that for another time.
