Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright / Conquest - Marriage and Children Guide

By Edited Feb 20, 2016 0 0

Back from Fire Emblem: Awakening, players can yet again test out their eugenics skills by breeding their favorite fighters in hopes to have more competent children. While the basic concept from Awakening is left the same, they have made some slight tweaks to the system this time around in Fire Emblem: Fates.

Throughout both versions of Fire Emblem: Fates, there are 21 children (5 version-neutral, 8 in Birthright, 8 in Conquest) that you can recruit through the same Hocus Pocus F*cking Plot Magic (HPFPM, if you will)  similar to Fire Emblem: Awakening. Like Chrom from Awakening, Corrin and Azura also have the option to have two children. However, unlike in the previous game where the paralogues to recruit the children were often locked behind a plot wall, in Fates, you can recruit the children almost as soon as you can get the characters to do their bedroom business.

Characters are married the exact same way. You raise their support levels in battle, and if they can achieve an S-rank with a character, the first person they do so with, they can marry. After building up the support and watching the marriage cutscene, and completing the first six chapters of the game (which are the version-neutral chapters) the child's chapter will be unlocked right away with difficulty scaling depending on game completion, making story progression no longer an issue.

However, one of the biggest changes to the child mechanic comes from how their character design is decided. In Fire Emblem: Awakening, the child's general look was dependent on the mother, while the father only decided it's hair color. In Fire Emblem Fates, the exact opposite is true. The Fathers now decide the all around look, while the mother's lend their hair color.

Unique to Fire Emblem: Fates, the main character can also have select same-sex relationships. If Male, Corrin can have a relationship with Niles, while the female version can have a same-sex relationship with Rhajat. However, these relationships will not result in children.

For those looking for information on the parents with the potential to make each child like, you know, how to recruit them, be sure to check out the Fire Emblem: Fates character recruitment guide.

Child Inheritance

When it comes to children, they get something from each parent that makes them a powerful hybrid class that can fit with each player's individual play style. This inheritance also makes it worthwhile to pair some characters together over others.

Each child will get:

  • Their Mother's hair color (except the male Kana)
  • One class from each parent
  • One skill from each parent (usually the one in the first slot)

This means that alongside the two classes they get from their parents, the child will also have their own class that they can level as. If the child and the parent have the same class, they will only have two classes available. It is also worth noting that the Songstress class cannot be passed down.

After being recruited, unlike in Fire Emblem: Awakening, the child will start at C-Rank support with each parent as well as any siblings if they have them. Children will also be unpromoted, but will have their level match your current completion of the game. So if you recruit them near the end of the game, they will be of a comparable level to the rest of your party.
