Reyson and Tibarn are two playable characters in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. They also appear in Fire Emblem Heroes. They have been read by fans as queer for sleeping together in the same tent and acting like a couple at times. This blog post goes into detail about their relationship and the possibility of them being gay. Additionally, Tibarn has some suggestive dialogue with Nailah, that suggests them possibly being sexually interested with each other (seen here).
Because of this, we have classified Reyson as Gay Implicit and Tibarn as Bisexual Implicit.
