Pretty much every character is interesting and none of them are cliche, not even Chrom (who I was actually expecting to be the stereotypical "heroic 'can't let anyone fall in battle' nonlogical' character, and he completely averted that trope).
Yeah, that was my problem with Radiant Dawn. Gameplay was fun and all, but with such a huge cast they settled for this generic support system. So a lot of the new character's background, personalities, and so on were pretty much left in the dark. I feel like this game got it right for the most part though I'm realizing the conversations between siblings and the variable father are all the same, it's not that big of a deal for me.
