As the title says, I've never played a Fire Emblem game.
I have played a few games in the past that allowed you to change the name of the main character, but for whatever reason there was a "real" name that everyone associated with the main character. Cloud from Final Fantasy VII is an example of what I mean.
I'm hoping to avoid renaming my character, and then having a dissonant experience from everyone else. I'd hate to be reading an article, or talking with a friend about the game, and have to constantly be reminding myself who everyone means when they say "Robin."
I started to google around about characters and names in Fire Emblem series, but there seem to be a good deal of them and I didn't want to spoil the experience of this one by reading too far into the character list and bios.
Any insight would be appreciated.
