Navarre (known outside North America as Nabarl) is a character from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. He is dubbed the Crimson Fencer and infamous for wielding the Killing Edge weapon serving as a mercenary for bandits.


During the War of Shadows, as documented in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Lightand Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, he was told to pursue Lena and Julian, but reconsiders when Caeda asked him to join Marth's cause, partly due to his policy not to hit women or children, which stemmed from a nightmare portrayed in the Fire Emblem OVA, where a woman is shown to be killed. He vanishes and returns to banditry after War of Shadows is over.

During the War of Heroes, as documented in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, Navarre reappears and returns as a mercenary to bandits where he runs to dancer Phina. After witnessing the Altean army's approach, Navarre once again joins Marth's cause out of respect for Marth from the previous war. He once again vanishes after the War of Heroes is over with Phina following him.

Navarre jump started an archetype of swordfighters, which would later evolve to Myrmidons and Swordmasters, traditionally as a lethal enemy who normally appears early in the campaign, called a "book" in the Fire Emblem series, and can be recruited and holds something that boosts Critical hit rate, such as Killing Edge. Most fans believe that members of this archetype are worth of the effort of recruiting, viewing them as assets to the player's army. The Navarre archetype rivals the Ogma archetype in terms of popularity alongside a few other characters in their respective games. Lorewise, they may have a relationship with their respective members of the either the Lena or Julian archetype. They are usually courageous and have a warrior's spirit, have some policy in mind, and are risk takers. Before being recruited to the player's army, they may have served as a hired sword for bandits or as a gladiator.
