 Did We Really Need Another Cavalier?
Vyland is another one of the 163 cavaliers that joins Marth’s group in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He shows up along with his prince Hardin and continues to follow Marth until the game ends or he dies. He, like Wolf, Sedgar, and Roshea, is completely silent for the whole game, although his actions suggest he has an undying loyalty for his leader Hardin and his country.
 Strengths and Talents
Vyland’s major strength is speed, due to a reasonable growth and a fairly decent base stat for his level. Other than that, he doesn’t shine in any other areas. Excluding speed, his other stats are inferior to most of the characters in the game, and most players prefer to either leave him unused or kill him in order to recruit the characters in the Gaiden chapters. Avoid using him if you can, but he's certainly preferable to units like Jagen or Arron.
