Looking for a tactical RPG that's very close to Fire Emblem

Hi Guys, long time lurker first time poster. I was wondering if there are any games out there that closely resemble the Fire Emblem series in gameplay. I am looking for something that's similar but most importantly it would feature:

-Unique Characters (no nameless "cavalry" unit).
-Some ability to level these characters up and maybe promote them,
-Ability to recruit new units over the course of the campaign.
-Preferably set in a swords and magic type era,rather than futuristic.

Any help would be appreciated as I am going out of town and wanted to find something to try when I found a spare minute.

It's not a fire emblem but its more advance wars and more complete then others.

It has some unique mechanics, but I think the game you are looking for is Ravenmark.

Seconded. Ravenmark is the closest and best game like Fire Emblem on iOS. (Mecha Wars is more like Advanced wars, and just a decent one at that.)

If you're into Strategy RPG but without the recruiting of units, you might be interested in what I am currently making
