Can I say 'Starting(Ch.1) Boss Union' ?

I can't really decide between the Greil Mercenaries and the Ram Villagers. I personally despise Shinon, but otherwise, the rest of the guys definitely have that "co-worker family" feel. I like the bit of competitiveness between Ike and Boyd, and I like Titania's role as second-in-charge.

On the other hand, Ram Village has a nice group too; while Faye is sorta "ehh" for me as a deconstruction of an obsessive crusher, you can also tell these guys are long-time buds. Gray is a definite favorite with his personality and his conversations with Alm and Tobin.

Huh, funny; both groups have a character voiced by Kyle McCarley. :P

The Greil Mercenaries, The Shepherds

I went with the Knights of Chalphy, mainly because I really like Sigurd, Lex, and Quan, Finn and Ethlyn. Not that the others are all that bad either. I kinda wish the Rebellion of Isaach was an option, because that's pretty much my true favorite, since everyone plays off each other rather well, and the selection of characters are amongst my favorites in Gen 2.

I voted for the Knights of Chalphy. The prologue in FE4 is one of my favorite chapters and the music really fits a bunch of knights performing their duty. I felt like there was a lot of fun in getting all the knights together for the first mission and how some of them came to help from their own countries.

Definitely the Greil Mercenaries. Titania, Oscar, Ike, Boyd, Soren, Shinon, and Gatrie? I'm sold, Oscar is my cinnamon roll and Titania is my favorite pre-promote ever (Frederick almost beats her). Although a close second would be the Shepherds. I enjoyed how they didn't make each other angry even though a lot of them had directly contrasting personalities. If I was Miriel, I would have lit Vaike on fire by now -_-

Mother Lukas taking care of the ram kids is my pick. Childhood buddies always gets to me. I've only watched playthroughs of 9/10 so I didn't get attached to the characters but I do like their dynamic.

Fates' changes depending on the game. In Conquest... there's basically no one except Corrin and one of his retainers, though it could be argued that Silas, Elise, and her retainers are part of the starting group. Birthright has Kaze, Sakura, and Rinkah.

But my favorite would be the Ram villagers. They're fun, funny, and I enjoy most all of their characters. Shout out to Tobin and Grey's relationship, as well as Lukas himself.

It's probably just from playing echoes recently, but I really enjoyed the characters of Ram Village, as well as the quartet of Novis, especially Mae and boey

I chose the villagers but I almost picked the Knights of Chalphy. Even though I love Sigurd and his knights (and Cuan, Lex, Finn and Ethlyn!) there's something very charming about a group of villagers who fight for their country.
