Prince of Ylisse Chrom, as you can probably predict from his oversized sword and foppish blue hairdo, arrives from tactical RPG series Fire Emblem, one of three protagonists in the 3DS' Fire Emblem Awakening.
Chrom, like his daughter Lucina, is the 'echo' of Smash Bros. Melee original Marth, and as with all the Fire Emblem brawlers in Smash Bros., is indistinguishable from the rest. Not terribly exciting.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
