As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of time…so if feeling generous, than please consider donating! It helps fund future projects. : )
Class: Sniper > Marksman
A Sniper who is part of the Greil Mercenaries.
He had been a part of the group since Greil first formed it. He is quite sarcastic, with a pointed attitude toward everything. However, a rare exception to this was the former commander, Greil –who he held in high regard and had deep faith in due to his unparalleled strength. For that reason, Shinon had quit the group in protest after Greil’s death. He saw Greil’s hereditary successor Ike as inexperienced and lacking all the qualities that Greil had. However, he rejoined the group later on after recognizing Ike had grown much stronger.
After the Mad King’s War, he continued to polish his bow skill. During the Crimean Rebellion, Lucia had gotten captured and faced execution by hanging. Right at the moment she was to be hanged, Shinon showed off his skill when he shot an arrow to cut the rope right above her head with great precision from atop a faraway tree.
He is not just a master of using the bow, but in making bows too. He recognizes Rolf as his pupil as he sees great talent in him –and, in turn, Rolf looks up to Shinon and his remarkable ability for guidance.
