The strategist is a character that appears in Fire Emblem. A customizable character, the player chooses the strategist's name, birth month and gender at the game's start. (S)he is meant to represent the player; in particular, because Fire Emblem was the first game in the series to see a western release, the strategist's role in the story is to serve as someone to which the game's characters can explain the standard battle mechanics of the series.
The strategist does not participate directly in battle and has no character portrait or dialogue during story events. However, the strategist can influence some directions of the story by making decisions as key points, and certain characters will respond to him/her differently depending on the chosen gender.
Fire Emblem: Awakening
If the player clears Fire Emblem: Awakening's DLC map "Smash Brethren 3", the reward is an Einherjar card of Lyn, one of the Lords of Fire Emblem. During the post-battle conversation with the Lyn of this card, she will see a resemblance between the Avatar (the player created tactician character of Awakening) and the strategist she adventured with in her own world and era. She wonders if the Avatar might in fact be the tactician she once knew. If the Avatar responds affirmatively, Lyn will start crying with joy at having been reunited with her long-lost friend.
