Each ending offers a different way Sylvain helps Foldan, and really, none of them outshine the other; they are just different. Paired endings are more than just shipping tools. Dorothea and Sylvain may be similar in how they were desired, but Mercedes and Sylvain are similar in how they suffered. So, her BL ending wins here. Sorry if I offend but the whole Ingrid is racist thing is completely stupid to me. Of the C supports, Sylvain is the only friend who Dimitri is actively antagonistic towards; Dimitri attempts to be kind to Felix with very limited success and his relationship with Ingrid is generally amicable, though they have deeper disagreements that later conversations discuss. Without reconciling with her family, the writing seems to punish her betrayal by making sure she never sees knighthood, although there are a few really great alternatives (looking at you, Warrior Queen!). Why is it, out of all the childhood friends, is he the only one that 1) doesn't have an A support with Dimitri and 2) seems to be the least affected by leaving Dimitri's side? Here they actually get married, but it's a rough start. He shows his true self to her pretty quickly, and says the things in his heart. C. Felix: I don't like the Felix endings for Ingrid. They may be at odds, but ultimately he's still very important to her. I'm also not a fan of Claude telling her to smile more or to stop being so uptight. Without the Goddess Tower conversation, the romance comes out of left field, and the A support ends with Sylvain just brushing off his issues with women and then in the S support resolving that by having found one woman he trusts to want him for more than his Crest. Not too bad, if I do say so myself! Without her king's house to serve as a knight, she simply returns to her territory, like Sylvain, and works hard to restore it. It suggests that if paired with Sylvain, Mercedes would have taken up a more general role instead of a primarily military one when it came to ruling. How you ask? Both bring about prosperity to their territories. Ingrid: Hm. She cares about her father. It's hard to tell from how it's worded. Fundamentally not much different than his VD and SS routes, although with some twists. also YES his support with Mercedes is freakin' amazing. Tenacity vs Guidance. This ending is more about duty but duty is something Ingrid understands well from knightly times during the war. I think the endings are connected with the support conversations somehow. BUT DAMMIT, I LOVE HER AND SYLVAIN TOGETHER *slams fist on table*, I honestly wasn't all that crazy about Ingrid marrying Claude either but damn, the Ending itself has me deceased. The chemistry between the two is very solid although I read it as purely platonic. The pair fought side by side on countless occasions, and were known to be inseparable on the battlefield. That's just who he is. Tenacity implies Ingrid took a more active role while Mercedes chose to use more oversight. But to me, the fact Ingrid gave up everything she loved for a man... Well, that's a pretty tough pill to swallow. "Warrior Queen?" And she follows! But before we really get into that, let's rank these endings! I've pondered about Sylvain for a while. Hopefully she doesn't get jealous that he's a knight and she's not in that ending :), well they still marry so I guess they worked it out ;). A very noble cause indeed. Sylvain is one of the more well written characters in the game and I like how he's actually self-aware of his own actions/personality. It's one of the reasons why she connects well with Dimitri- they both believe they are plagues upon the world. It’s hard to say. Though he went down in history as an extraordinary lord, he could not have done so without the constant support and counsel of his wife, Ingrid, whose wisdom and tenacity ensured that the people would prosper. Felix changed her mind. No mention of what he did as a Margrave. In this route, she says "Now that I have parted ways with my father, there is nothing stopping me from pursing my dream". Sylvain: Fine, I promise I'll try to change. He is just unable to connect deep enough with other people. He took a wound for her that resulted in losing his arm. J: Sylvain: Ingrid gets completely overshadowed in this ending. No matter what paths these two take, no matter if they have to turn their backs on their families and betray everything they knew, they still have the exact same ending. They are both people who suffered by the very same tragedy, and lost one person they share that they cared about. She was free to pursue her dream as a knight without her father around, but never actually sees it come into fruition. Sylvain might consider Felix his best friend, but Felix’s best friend (at his heart of hearts, since he would deny outwardly that he has a best friend) is Dimitri. Gotta admire the guy; he doesn't shy away from responsibility, but also doesn't give in to tradition either. After more than 10 proposals, Dorothea finally relented and agreed to marry Sylvain. Ingrid is one of the few female supports that Sylvain doesn't ask if she is interested in him for his Crest or status because he already knows that she cares for him regardless of those things. Let's start with Mercedes. So, I actually had to do a bit of extra research for this one (ie grind my supports until I got A with her on my BL file) because I noticed that her A support with Byleth differs depending on route.
