"Fight and get stronger, he says... Guess it can't hurt to try. I sure hope I don't get in the way! Gosh, that would be just awful..."

Awakening was my first Fire Emblem game, so it has a special place in my heart already. Donnel's story of wanting to protect his village, and as the first paralogue character, helped me to really get invested in the fact that every character has their own motives and story - in a way, he helped to make Awakening as memorable of a game as it was to me!
