I tried looking up a YouTube video on him and couldn't find any. I did see what the archer looks like but I still didn't answer my question. What is so special about a particular NPC archer?

lol joke topic lol

on the off chance that this is serious, he's the top left sniper manning the balistae on 3-13, and towards the end of the chapter, some laguz appear in the pit to the left of him. He goes down there and pwns the lot of them, and that's about it.

Sorry, I just haven't got to that far yet, so I didn't know the inside joke. >_>

odds are, when you get there, you won't notice him anyway. He doesn't stand out most of the time.

The 3-13 Archer is a popular NPC Archer in the 13th chapter of Part 3. He is first located on the map's upper left ballista. A ballista is a large device used for firing various projectiles. The earliest form of ballistae was developed from early Greek versions of crossbows, and were generally used to fire large darts or rounded stones. However, I am not here to discuss the ballista or its origins, just to tell you about the 3-13 Archer, so I will continue to write about the 3-13 Archer instead of the history of ballistae. Please excuse my wandering. Back to the point, the thing that makes the 3-13 Archer so unique is that, unlike most NPCs, he shows some semblance of AI. Around the eighth turn of Chapter 13 of Part 3, laguz appear, ready to kill the guards blocking the gap leading to the 3-13 Archer's ballista, which is now probably out of ammo. That was likely a run-on sentence, but I'm not going to bother to fix it. At this point, the 3-13 Archer leaves his ballista, jumps off of the ledge, and proceeds to kill, or attempt to kill, the laguz ready to maul the guards. He fights for his friends. Surprisingly enough, he manages to kill the 3 laguz, more often than not,before they kill him and he becomes an hero. This makes to 3-13 Acher, i mean Archer, or actually, I mean "I mean Archer"... um, where was I again? Oh, yes. This makes the 3-13 Archer a standout among NPCs, and is why I'm writing right now. Sorry for the confusion. However, on a more interesting note, the 3-13 Archer isn't really an archer, but a Sniper. That is to say, he is an archer, as in someone who fires a bow, but his official class title in the game is Sniper, as in someone who's really good with a bow, not someone standing in a window with a rifle trying to shoot the President. But it seems like of gone off topic yet again, and if it happens another time I give up with the writing. Anyways, most people's reasoning for the 3-13 Archer's title is either that "3-13 Sniper doesn't sound as good" or "I'm too much of a lazy ass to care". Thus, the 3-13 Sniper got his title as the 3-13 Archer, and continued to inspire me as I wrote this.
