Appearance(s)
Manster had a great number of children seized and sent to the shrine in Miletos. I was unable to prevent it... I'm no hero, sir. I'm a coward if anything.
— Ced, on Seliph's praise of his efforts

Ced (Japanese: セティ Sety) is the prince of Silesse, the son of the errant King Lewyn and the late Queen Ferry, and a full-blooded descendant of the Wind Crusader for whom he was named. Raised in Silesse during its occupation by the Grannvale Empire, when his mother fell gravely ill he departed Silesse to find his missing father, to bring him to see her before she died. His way took him through Manster, where he witnessed the suffering of the people and swore to do what he could to help. He joined the Magi, a then-struggling band of warriors devoted to fighting the oppression and helping the people, and led them to greater success in opposing the Manster occupation and in saving children from the child hunts. He was later involved in the liberation armies of both Leif and Seliph.

In his appearance in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, if Ferry was not married in the course of the first generation, Ced's role is filled by Hawk.

Biography

Note: This biography adheres to the canon defined by Thracia 776, which dictates that Lewyn was Ced and Fee's father, and all references to his parentage are in accordance with this. In the gameplay of Genealogy, although the game's events still encourage that Lewyn be married to Ferry, this choice - and thus Ced's parentage - remain entirely at the player's discretion, and any stated relation to and interaction with Lewyn does not happen. Beyond his interactions with Lewyn, Genealogy itself is non-specific about his father's identity, although certain elements, such as his father having disappeared and left Ferry behind, remain true in all cases.

As certain details of the events of the Thracian siege of Manster differ between Genealogy and Thracia 776, the Thracia 776 version is given here, since its take on the battle is the more in-depth of the two.

Search for his father

Ced and his sister, Fee, grew up in Silesse during its occupation by the forces of the Grannvale Empire. The royal family spent the occupation living in the remote Thove Castle in Silesse's far north, under the protection of Silessean rebels opposing the Empire.[1] Lewyn was present for at least part of their childhood, but eventually disappeared for reasons unknown to his family.[2] After several years, Ferry suffered a terminal illness which slowly killed her. Believing Lewyn to be the only one able to heal Ferry, Ced left Silesse on a mission to find his father, leaving Fee behind.[3]

During his search, Ced entered the city of Manster to follow up a rumor that Lewyn had been there within half a year prior. He was deeply moved by the plight of Manster's people under Raydrik's rule and refused to let their suffering continue, and so put off his search for Lewyn to aid them.[4] He encountered and became involved with the Magi, a rebel band which had recently suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Grannvale's forces, and became its leader and single-handedly turned its fortunes around, turning them into a force capable of successfully resisting the Empire.[5] During his time at the helm of the Magi, he took one of its members, Asvel, as his apprentice and taught him wind magic.

Hero of Manster

In Grann 776, around the time that Leif had been captured by Raydrik, Ced led a Magi invasion of the Manster palace dungeon. He tasked Brighton, Machyua and Lara with rescuing those imprisoned on the dungeon floor, while he and searched for imprisoned children. He instructed Asvel with, once confirming the children were safe, finding and assisting Leif. During this time he was approached by Karin, deployed to find him, who informed him of Ferry's death two months prior. He nonetheless declined Karin's request to return to Silesse, but instead entrusted her with the Ced Scroll. Shortly afterward, he led a small team of reinforcements to aid Leif's escape through the streets of Manster.

Over six months later, Leif returned to Manster at the helm of the new Leonster liberation army, on a mission to bring it down once and for all while his cousin Seliph fought in Conote. News of Leif's approach provoked one last attempt to flee by the citizens of Manster, which Ced and the Magi assisted by fighting countless skirmishes with the Manster army throughout the city.[6] During the battles he was approached by Saias, who offered to escort the people to safety; though initially unsure of Saias's intent, he accepted and entrusted Saias with the Blagi Sword to give to Leif. As Leif's army drew closer, Ced and the Magi successfully seized control of almost the entire city of Manster, with only a portion of the castle remaining under Raydrik's control,[7] and he prepared to personally fend off an incoming attack by a Thracian unit led by Coruta.

In the late stages of this battle he met with Leif for the first time, and the latter thanked him for his efforts in the Manster prison. When Leif lamented his inability to compare to Ced or Seliph, Ced reassured him about his worthiness to the Noba bloodline, then joined his forces. Ced participated in the final battles against Raydrik and Veld, and later accompanied Leif in joining Seliph's larger liberation army in their campaigns in Thracia and beyond. Soon after, Ced noticed Lewyn staying close to Seliph. He confronted Lewyn about his actions and abandonment of his family, and was enraged by Lewyn's seemingly unconcerned attitude about Ferry and her death.

Following the final battle against Julius in Belhalla, Ced returned to Silesse and was formally crowned as the King of Silesse.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Ced is a playable character late in the game, playing a similar role as in Genealogy. In Chapter 23, he will appear as a NPC once a member of the player's party approaches Manster Castle, so long as the boss Alphan has yet to be killed; once Ced's appearance is triggered, he will kill Alphan automatically in a cutscene. Should Ced die before being recruited (unlikely as it is, given his use of Forseti, it is an automatic Game Over. In each playthrough the player is required to choose between taking Ced and Saias to the game's final chapters. If the player recruits Ced, then Saias will leave the party at the end of Chapter 23.

Long prior to Chapter 23, Ced can appear as a NPC on two different occasions (though only once per playthrough). If the player enters the sidequest Chapter 4x, Ced will be present as an unrecruitable NPC who will move around the map's upper half and attack enemies; Karin can talk to him here to receive the Ced Scroll. If Chapter 4x is skipped, Ced will appear in Chapter 6 from turn 5 onward, leading nine Magi reinforcements. Ced and his subordinates will attack Truman's army to buy Leif time to escape, and will leave in turn 9. Karin will not be able to talk to Ced and receive the Ced Scroll in this chapter. In both NPC appearances, Ced's Forseti will have infinite durability, which is not retained when he is recruited later.

Personality and character

Ced possesses a strong devotion to the welfare of others, and despite having no stake in the fight for Manster he gave up on his search for his father in order to help the Manster people.[8] Even so, he is exceptionally hard on himself, as despite fighting his best he still considers himself a failure for being unable to save everyone.[9]

Endings

Genealogy of the Holy War

If Lewyn was his father

In Silesse, which was for a long time under the control of the Empire, Ced, who returned to his country, succeeded to the throne, and devoted himself with all his strength to the reconstruction of the devastated country.
At his side,
His sweetheart, <wife>,
The Pegasus Knight Fee,
Smiled at him, filled with hope.
A beautiful land, and people who loved peace.
The Kingdom of Silesse, which Lewyn protected at the risk of his life, finally came here to completion.

Thracia 776

Ced - Wind Crusader
Upon returning to Silesse, Ced gave in to his people's yearning for his leadership and took the throne. Thanks to his hard work and unbending will, the trampled land of Silesse slowly, but surely, began to regain its former beauty.

  3. "Karin: She tries hard to hold back her tears in front of the others, but she cries and cries when she's alone with me... You're so cruel, Lord Ced. You push everything on little Lady Fee and go running off to a place like this... It's natural to be called a hero when you take after Forseti. But you're letting that get to your head and abandoning your mother and sister. And you call yourself the prince of Silesse!
    Ced: Karin... You're right. But my father was the only one who cure my mother's illness. Even if I stayed by her side, there was nothing I could do except watch her fade away... That's why I wanted to find my father no matter what.
