Hugh is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. Hugh is a mercenary mage; he is the grandson of Niime, the son of Canas, and cousin of Nino. He was raised by his extremely strict grandmother and holds a grudge towards her about it. When the Etrurian defectors abandoned their fort, he is so worried about not getting his pay that he goes over to Roy's army for a job. Hugh is portrayed as very naive to the point of being called childish by younger characters like Chad and Raigh, but he is sincere and good at heart.
Hugh must be paid a large sum of money to be recruited. The player has the option of paying him 10,000 gold, but can decline the offer and choose to pay him a lower sum; if the last offer (5000G) is declined, he refuses to join the party. Each time the player declines his offer, his starting stats decrease.
