Fire Emblem Engage: Cramme Tidbits via Twitter

Okay, it seems like the official Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter isn’t doing daily Fire Emblem Engage Twitter posts, but weekly ones instead.

This week, they’re showcasing Cramme, the young mage boy who seems to join near the start of the game.

His profile:

Cramme (Kōhei Amasaki) is a 33rd generation Dragon Guardian, protecting the Divine Dragon at the Land of Lythos, alongside Vander. He is Framme’s older twin brother and was by Alear’s side when they awoke. A gentle priest who serves–and is also a fan of–Alear.

For the record, we don’t know what his English name is. In the Japanese version, his name is Kuran (Clan etc.). But considering his sister was renamed from Furan (Fran) to Framme, I tried to do something similar.

Here’s a video of Cramme performing a critical hit in battle, using the Fire spell.

Judging from the background, this seems to be the same map where Framme was fighting an Elusian Soldier in the reveal trailer. The enemy that Cramme is fighting (some kind of armoured knight) is also labelled as an Elusian Soldier.

Here’s a look at the moments before Cramme enters battle.

Cramme is a Mage (Mystical category) equipped with Fire, a wind tome(?) and a Vulnerary. He has a similar skill to Vander, icon-wise (but more green-ish in colour). This skill also seems to trigger when adjacent to Alear (or any unit?).

The mini-map is interesting, showing breakable walls and chests near the north-west corner and a door separating the southern hall from the north-east section. (Breakable walls also appeared in a defense chapter, in the reveal trailer.)

I’m not terribly confident but the map seems to occur at sunset, hence the brown/orange tones. Initially I thought it occured in the desert region, but it could be anywhere now.

The carpets and flags are green and the flag has a five-pointed flower or star. The Elusian troops also wear green so is this their home turf? However, the characters are low level, so it’d be pretty strange to be invading the enemy at such an early point in time. Although I guess it could be a lowly fortress or something.

The characters on the map include Alear (with Marth), Alfred (with Sigurd), Céline (with Celica), Chloé, Framme, Cramme, Etie, Louis and the unknown brown haired axe wielder.

This is the exact same party as in the verdant nation map from the reveal trailer, as shown by the above screenshots. Note that Alear is also Level 4 here, just like Cramme. Hmm, does the sunset battle occur in the verdant nation or somewhere nearby? Alfred and Céline appear to be nobility/royalty from the verdant nation though. Although it’s possible there’s a civil war or those two are “traitors” etc.

Actually, there’s another possibility. Maybe the green carpets/flags are actually blue. If so, this increases the chance that the fortress belongs to the verdant nation. However, there are a couple of assumptions. Namely that Alfred is from the verdant nation and that him wearing blue is important (Céline doesn’t seem to wear blue, even though I’d place her in that nation).

It would make a bit more sense, especially if the flag is supposed to be a flower (although it looks a bit too pointy to me). Furthermore, during the Framme battle scene, you can get a better look at the door, which has a floral-like design.

Okay, that’s probably enough theorycrafting. Here’s the combat forecast for Cramme. He can perform a follow-up attack, decimating his armoured opponent. Curiously, Cramme does not lose HP for casting Fire, unlike when Céline casted Celica’s Ragnarok.

Finally, we have Cramme’s self-introduction.

Nothing out of the ordinary here, but like mentioned in his profile, he’s a 33rd generation Dragon Guardian, compared to Vander, who’s a 32nd. Presumably Framme is also from the 33rd generation.
