Making his debut in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Ike became leader of the Crimean Liberation Army.  He returned in Radiant Dawn to share the spotlight with Micaiah.

Game Appearances:
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Ike brings mastery of a two-handed sword, which he can apparently use with just one hand.  His sword might be tough, but he may not offer enough variety to make him a worthy adversary.
