Kaze. A Hoshidan ninja. In stark contrast to his older twin brother, Saizou, he’s a composed and polite young man. He firmly believes in choosing his own master and is strongly loyal, even going as far to sacrifice his own life. The most popular amongst the army.
[spoiler=Marriage/Buddy Seals]
Spoiler (Marriage/Buddy Seals)

A Marriage/Buddy seal allows a unit to reclass into one of the select class trees of his spouse (S support) or buddy (A+ support). A unit may only achieve an S support with units of the opposite gender (exc. Kamui, Syalla, Zero), and may only achieve an A+ support with units of the same gender.

(The credit for the following information goes to Gayserbeam, as I copied the wording of his explanation. Check out the Class Changing and Inheritance Thread for more information.

  • If the users Primary Class is different than their Spouses/Buddys Primary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddys Primary Class, even if the user has that class as a Secondary Class already.
  • If the users Primary Class is the same as their Spouses/Buddys Primary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddys Secondary Class.
  • If the user is married or buddied with a unit who has an unlearnable class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddys Secondary Class.
    • An unlearnable class is a class that may be unique to a character or their children. The following units have unlearnable classes: Nishiki (Fox Spirit), Flannel (Garou), Azura (Singer), Mozume (Villager).
  • If the user is married or buddied with a unit who has an unlearnable class, and their Primary Class is the same as their Spouses/Buddys Secondary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddys Substitute Class.
    • A Substitute Class is simply a select class a character with an unlearnable class passes down under certain circumstances. The following units have Substitute Classes: Nishiki (Herb Merchant), Flannel (Outlaw), Azura (Rod Knight), Mozume (Herb Merchant).


If you're still confused, let me use Kaze as an example to try and clarify matters!

  • Kaze/Rinkah: Kaze's Primary Class is Ninja, and Rinkah's is Oni Savage. Therefore, Kaze would Marriage Seal into Oni Savage.
    • Kaze/Hana: Kaze's Primary Class is Ninja, and Hana's is Samurai. Therefore, Kaze would Marriage Seal into Samurai. As Kaze's Secondary Class is Samurai, he would not receive a new class tree from Hana.
  • Kaze/Kagerou: Kaze's Primary Class is Cavalier, and Kagerou's is Cavalier. Therefore, Kaze would Marriage Seal into Kagerou's Secondary Class-- Spellcaster.
  • Kaze/Azura: As Azura's Primary Class is Singer, an unlearnable class, Kaze would Marriage Seal into her Secondary Class-- Pegasus Warrior.
  • Kaze/Ninja!Avatar: Avatar's Primary Class is Nohr Princess, an unlearnable class. Kaze's Primary Class is Ninja, and Avatar's Secondary Class is Ninja. Therefore, Kaze would Marriage Seal into his Substitute Class-- Knight.

Yeah, it sucks that we can only have up to five questions. Riku stated that in her/his polls when the forum requested for Blarth. You can help me though. I won't be able to post anything within 36 hours. Just click the classes tag on the top and find your reference.

Back to the topic, I'm using him as a Dread Fighter and will switch back to Jonin after Lv. 35. Though he doesn't need DLC classes to be honest since his strength can easily be patched with either Attack Stance or +Str pair-ups, which are plenty in Nohr.

Puppet Master is also a practical choice because of high movement and workable strength.

I heard that he performs pretty well in the Samurai line as well, however I don't have any intention in trying that, since I have many sword users already.

Kaze has pretty decent natural STR base and growth, but Ninja tanks it and keeps his LUC pretty atrocious. Switching over to Samurai fixes these problems, but then he has to grind up Sword rank and loses Hidden Weapons. Puppeteer is kind of a compromise (and he'll get bows, which is kind of cool because even a Bronze Bow is going to mess fliers up, plus Copycat Puppet,) but then he has to suffer Ninja's bad STR AND grind up a second weapon.

It's kind of a matter of what you want Kaze to do most. Nohr, the answer is probably "be the Ninja, debuff all the things," but Hoshido, you might decide you want an early Trueblade who can actually have decent HP (hi Hana) and SPD (hi Hinata) at the same time, considering how many Ninjas Hoshido throws at you.

Well, I think he's the only person in the army aside from Arthur who needs Goddess Icons anyway (even -LCK Kamui isn't that bad), so you safely can dump those on him (each giving +4 instead of +2 is also a huge help).

I don't recall Hoshido having many ninjas, aside from chapter 10 and paralogues. Nohr, why can't you be like this?

Best Class (Hoshido): Elite Ninja

Best Class (Nohr): Trueblade

Trueblade is probably his best option needed for the +30 avoid skill that he needs for his natural bad defense!

Making Kaze a Samurai at any point is a terrible decision because E Swords and losing debuffs isn't cool. Since he has 1-2 range, he really doesn't need Flowing Strike on player phase. It's pretty easy to keep his offense competent via forges, pair up, and kitchen (I've had him ORKO Lancers in N20, for instance). Effective weaponry also goes a long way with him, then once he gets his faire he's set for life.

Things get much harder for him in IK, though.
