What if’s FE7 had their own Roach

So I like Fire Emblem 6 Project Ember maybe not the best rom hack I seen but definitely a very interesting one. But one of it’s new attention that really fascinated me was a brand new character Roach.
For those unaware Roach was a exclusive character to Project Ember and wasn’t in the original Binding Blade. He was Douglas subordinate and that was pretty much yet. One thing that was interesting about Roach was he reuse Raeth and Teck portrait two boss character and you all should know i a big fan of the boss portrait throughout the series. So what if’s Fire Emblem the Blazing Blade the prequel to Binding Blade have their own Roach. Unlike Roach I want to go more in-depth with this character then just make him playable but also given him a class a backstory and recruitment conversations and boss conversations. So with out further to due let me introduce you to Jack
Jack is a skilled mercenary and a former Black Fang. He was taken in the Black Fang at a very young age and he work his way to become a high ranking member. He was giving the codename the Fierce Crocodile. But once corruption enter the Black Fang Jack leave and so became a bounty hunter for hired.

Jack the Fierce Crocodile
After the final battle Jack continued to do some more job offers. But he eventually give up on being a bounty hunter. So he travel all around Lycia to protect people from criminals and bandits. People now referred to Jack as the Protective Lion.

Well that take longer then I was expecting. But it’s was fun for me. So what did you think of it.


Got to say, it feels unique and original as well. Jack is basically Roach, but with an actual backstory and being well-written.

Jack alright kid. No delaying it any further. I’m going to tell you about my backstory.
Hector finally.
Jack just take a seat there.
Hector alright.
Jack ok. Before I tell you about how i was born. I need to tell you about my father Count Rist. My father was originally a tax collector. Until he met my mother Lady Patricia. She was a noble from Bern and toke controlled most of Bern Territory’s. Both of them fell in love with each other and my father became a count because of her. My mother soon give birth to me but unfortunately for her she died couple of days after i was born. After her death my father toke over all of her territory’s. Rist was a greedy and power hungry man he toke over more of Bern territory’s and do everything in his power to milk every single money out of its.
Hector okay so your dad was a very terrible count. But he got to be a loving father to you right?
Jack nope! He was very terrible to me. He would never spent any time with me. And when he does he usually send his royal guards to beat me up every chance he has.
Hector that terrible! What kind of father would send his soldiers to beat up his own son! Let alone his only child!
Jack One night our palace was raided by the Black Fang. The one leading this attack was it’s leader at the time Brendan Reed. Brendan and my father duel with each other and i set there watching them fight it out. Father was able to disarm Brendan Reed and about to kill him but i grab a knife from a nearby table and stab my father.
Hector you killed your own father. But why?
Jack i i just Couldn’t hold it in anymore. The amount of pain and misery my father brought upon to me. So Brendan Reed was about to leave but he couldn’t just leave me all alone so he toke me along. While the both of us fleeing the palace i noticed that the royal guards were knock out unconscious no casualties. And when we arrived at the base Brendan let me join the Black Fang.
Hector so that how you became part of the Black Fang. You rejected your noble life.
Jack that right. I didn’t want to became a rich noble. I wanted to help people who can’t defend themselves. And killed corrupt nobles like Rist Lundgren and Darin. Until Nergal and Sonia toke over. But i think you Heard quite enough of it don’t you kid.
Hector yeah i think that enough.
Jack good.
Hector you know Jack. After hearing all of that. The abuse the rejection and your reason to be part of the Black Fang. I can’t help but have respect and appreciation toward you. No wander my brother hired you to help us.

Lyn: the Sacaen we encountered back at the dread isle. Why?
Jack: he’s codename was the Soaring Hawk.
Hector: what about that Lloyd guy to?
Jack: he’s is the White Wolf. The Black Fang were originally a group of mercenary set out the kill corrupt nobles and protect the weak.
Eliwood: oh i see. That why some of them like Uhai have a sense of honor.
Hector: but i don’t get it. Why were the Black Fang helping Darin out? He clearly mad with power. And why are they associating themselves with Nergel?
Jack: that because he and Sonia toke control and twisted the Black Fang. That why you encounter criminals like Pascal Grentzer and Jerme within the Fangs.
Eliwood: what up between you and that madman?
Lyn: yeah. It’s seem the two of you have some sort of a history together. Why is that?
Jack: … he is the reason why i left the Black Fang.

Lyn: ……
Eliwood: … Jack… i… i don’t know what to say about that. Am so sorry what happen.
Jack: … don’t say it. It’s not necessary for you to say that.
Hector: didn’t Brandon Reed do anything about this?
Jack: he did. He had Jerme lock up in prison for this. But that didn’t stop Sonia from releasing him so he can continue to kill more innocent people. And that why i left the Black Fang.
Eliwood: so the Black Fang was never evil. It’s was both Nergel and Sonia that corrupt it.
Hector: okay now that we know about the true history about the Black Fang. Let hurry to the palace!
Lyn: right.
Jack: kids one more thing.
Eliwood: what is it?
Jack: i just wanted to say……
