This might be me being oversensitive and there isn't really a lot of information to read from, but I don't see any mention of being able to choose a class for My Unit and I'm starting to wonder if they axed this option. Of course, given you could in FE12 and the nature of a customisable FE unit, you'd think choosing a class would be a given.

However, in the latest scan, it shows 4 categories for My Unit's creation. It's hard to make out the text due to the scan being unclear, but the categories appear to be Gender, Appearance, Profile and ???. In FE12, Class is chosen between Gender and Appearance and it seems odd that it's not there--where it would make the most sense. Although it's possible that it's an option under Profile or the last mystery category.

Additionally, I've looked through a lot of images and footage and I keep seeing this curious Mage character who's either ash-haired (Jase) or dark-haired (Reflet) and they're always around, but never both at the same time. If you consider My Unit and Jase sport the exact same clothes and face, but have slightly different eyes and hair, it's obvious that Jase is My Unit.

Left: Jase, Right: My Unit

Reflet has the same map sprite/battle model, but with darker hair and apparently has a A support with Krom, which suggests they may be an alternative My Unit.

So, assuming My Unit has a fixed class, it looks like he/she may be a Mage of some sort. I'm hoping I'm wrong though : P

They don't have the exact same face, just almost identical ones :P

Anyway, I'd be fine if the class is fixed if it's a unique class and plays a role in the story, but if it's some generic class I'd be :(:

That said, I do hope they make class chooseable, but have it be unique variations on the generic classes, like Lyn was for myrm.

Prehaps class is based in background choice ("Profile")?

Like Micaiah and Sothe?

I hope to be able to choose My Unit class, I mean, I think that's what "My Unit" means, making your own character not only in hair/eyes/type etc., but also in personality and class...

I believe that class selection wasn't on the same screen as anything else in FE12, so it's entirely possible you've already chosen the class by the time you get to that screen, or you choose it after that screen. Although, if My Unit is a mage I wouldn't be too pissed off, because mages are awesome.

We should keep in mind that a lot of these early screens may not even wind up in the game; remember Micaiah fighting Caineghis?

Remember how those scans were from months and months, a year before the game was released?

Remember how this game needs to be completely finished by the end of march to get every produced and shipped for it's April release?

You're not considering the difference of time involved.

Even though it's impossible to have Micaiah fight Caineghis, the HP bars/stat box/Micaiah and Caineghis' models were exactly what they were when the game was released so I don't know what your point is.

I assume he means the character in the image that was meant to be on the left, but they were shifted to different rows, so it turned out as the top image. It's clear that the actual character he's referring to is the one Krom is talking to.

If MyUnit's fixed as a mage, I'm ok. I can always picture him/her as the studious theorycrafting tactician while he/she lets others do the REAL fighting in the frontlines. 8]

My Unit in FE12 was a Mage, so I wish it not just mages in FE13 :/:

I should have chose another class xD

So apparently My Unit has a fixed class similar to Mage Fighter. Myself, I'm pretty disappointed.

Given the mention of promotion in the preview, wonder if MU has anything special for promotion.

I think it's cool that he's a mage fighter. I wonder if they'll give the player the choice to focus on his physical combat (making him stronger and more durable) or his magical combat.

Yeah, that would be interesting. It notes that class specifically as where he starts, and notably excludes any explanations about where he goes from there.

Well, I don't care that he's a magefighter (I'll have Mu focus on magic...imagine how weird that battle model would look physical fighting o_0) but I do hope they do like in New Mystery. You get to choose their "destiny" (past, present and future). I know they won't let us choose personality (probably) since they already have speech bubbles as we've seen in some scans.

Imagine how broken he could be if this is similar to other FEs. You could just focus on magic and defense, and neglect strength and res, and finally have a ridiculously tanky mage.
