What? The dregs of Archanea have come to challenge my kingdom? Ha ha ha... Really, do they think people have not tried before?
— Gharnef

Gharnef (Japanese: ガーネフ Garnef) was a powerful sorcerer known as the Dark Pontifex who played a crucial role in orchestrating the resurrection of Medeus and the two resulting wars. Formerly a student of the White Sage Gotoh, wrath and jealousy eventually spurred him to rebel and abandon Gotoh, stealing a dark artifact which twisted him into a malevolent figure who sought to condemn the world to ruin. In the War of Shadows, now acting as the ruler of Khadein, he allied with Medeus and his Dolhr Empire and bent many other nations to serve Dolhr, and owing to the sinister magic at his command, he was long thought invulnerable.

Although Gharnef was ultimately defeated late in the War of Shadows, when Marth's Archanean League used the Starlight spell to pierce his dark invulnerability, he was resurrected within three years. He was responsible for corrupting the once honorable Hardin, emperor of Archanea, into a vicious despot, and under the cover of Hardin's lust for the conquest of the rest of Archanea he set about resurrecting Medeus for a second time in his "true and darkest form".

Biography

Origins

An unspecified amount of time before the revival of Medeus, Gharnef was once a student of Gotoh, and studied under him in the city of Khadein. Along with Miloah, who would later be appointed a pontifex of Khadein, Gharnef was one of Gotoh's two best pupils. Despite his considerable talents, Gotoh grew wary of Gharnef's wrathful and compassion-less nature, and instead chose to appoint Miloah as his heir. Gharnef was outraged and overcome by jealousy on hearing this decision, and as an act of vengeance he stole the Darksphere from Gotoh's safe-keeping and fled Khadein. He used the power of the Darksphere to forge a new, powerful tome of his own: Imhullu. However, in the process of creating the tome, Gharnef's soul was sealed within the Darksphere itself, cementing his descent into malevolent madness.[2]

Pontifex

Eventually after this, Gharnef succeeded in reviving Medeus as part of his plans to avenge himself upon all of Archanea, and forged an alliance with the dragon. Following the reconstitution of the Dolhr Empire and its army, the combined might of the two brought ruin to countless kingdoms, starting with the Holy Kingdom of Archanea.[3] Soon after the war began, Gharnef engaged Miloah in a battle and murdered him, seizing control of Khadein.[4] Gharnef's leadership dragged Khadein into the thick of the war, putting its magical prowess to brutal use, while Gharnef himself effortlessly supressed countless attempts to stage coups against him.[5] By the time the war ended, his rule had caused immense damage to the city and wiped out all of its other ruling pontifices.[6] Even at this point, he was well aware of the threat which could be posed to him should Starlight ever be created, so to prevent this from happening, he captured and hypnotized Tiki and had her defend the Fane of Raman, where the necessary materials were being held.[7]

It was Gharnef who convinced King Jiol to have Gra betray Altea and ally with Dolhr,[8], and as part of his efforts to blackmail the Grust's King Ludwik into allying with Dolhr, Gharnef abducted its young twin prince and princess, Yubello and Yumina, and imprisoned them in a pitch-black room in Khadein. The two would eventually be rescued by Wendell.[9] Following Altea's betrayal and defeat at Menedy River, Gharnef took possession of Falchion to properly safeguard it from being used against Medeus,[10] and he abducted Altea's Princess Elice and took her to his hideout in Thabes, planning to take advantage of her ability to use Aum for an unknown purpose.[11]

Gharnef's influence looms over Thabes.

Four years into the war, the tides had turned with the rise of Prince Marth of Altea and his united resistance army, the Archanean League. Following his defeat of Gra, Marth travelled to Khadein in search of Falchion, having deduced it to be in Gharnef's possession. Gharnef briefly emerged to attack them, fully aware they were incapable of being a serious threat to him at the time but eventually he grew bored and left. After this, Marth was tasked by Gotoh with forging Starlight to defeat Gharnef.

In the closing acts of the war, after both Grust and Macedon had been defeated, Marth's army was sent by Gotoh to Thabes, in order to defeat Gharnef, retrieve Falchion and rescue Elice. With Marth's army now bearing the power of Starlight, the dark protection of Imhullu was pierced and Gharnef was slain.

Puppetmaster

Gharnef offers the Darksphere to a distraught Hardin.

Despite the death of his physical body at Thabes, Gharnef's soul lived on in the Darksphere, and with it he was eventually revived by his heretic disciples.[12] Still determined to cause the end of the world, he sought to engineer Medeus's revival for a second time, this time hatching a two-part plan involving using noble-born Clerics as sacrifices. As part of this, Gharnef encountered Eremiya, a bishop in charge of an orphanage who had lost many of her orphans to war, and cast a spell on her to turn her into his minion. Under Gharnef's influence, Eremiya started training orphans to become assassins to serve Gharnef's ends behind the scenes, including an assassination attempt on Marth one year after the end of the War of Shadows.[13]

In order to achieve this plan, Gharnef needed to use Hardin, now the emperor of Archanea. Hardin had since spiralled into a deep depression over his unrequited love for his wife Nyna, and Gharnef seized upon this opportunity and appeared before Hardin, giving him the Darksphere. Hardin's heart was instantly twisted by the Darksphere, turning him into a malevolent conqueror, and he willingly handed Nyna over to Gharnef for use as the first of the sacrifies.[14] In the confusion of Hardin's reign upon the rest of the continent, Gharnef stole Falchion from Altea Castle during its downfall and had Eremiya's assassins capture three more clerics - Maria, Elice and Lena - for use in the rites of Medeus's revival.[15] He also took possession of Starlight, to prevent it from being used against him ever again, but late in the conflict it was stolen back from him by Michalis.[16]

Gharnef's actions directly caused the War of Heroes, pitting Hardin and the Archanean Empire against Marth and the remnants of Altea, which was swiftly conquered by Hardin. Eventually, when Marth returned and slew Hardin, Gharnef and three of his heretic bishops appeared before him disguised as the four clerics. However, the light of the newly-restored Binding Shield repelled him and revealed their true forms, and as he fled to retreat to the Dragon's Table, Gharnef left him with a cryptic warning of Medeus's impending return. Soon after, Marth's army found and defeated Eremiya, and following her defeat Gharnef appeared before her and revealed how he had brainwashed her into raising assassins, delighting in her suffering as she died.

On Gotoh's counsel it wasn't long before Marth and his army pursued Gharnef to the Dragon's Table. In the Table's penultimate chamber, Gharnef confronted Marth and warned him that Medeus was now unstoppable and that the clerics' souls had broken to the point of being unsalvageable, and engaged him in a battle to kill Marth before he reached Medeus.[17] However, having received Starlight from Michalis, Marth's army prevailed over Gharnef and killed him again. He is not known to have resurfaced ever since.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Role

Gharnef is the boss of Chapter 23. He wields Imhullu and thus can only be defeated if the player has obtained Starlight; his defeat is necessary in order to obtain Falchion. If the player lacks Starlight, it is possible to clear the chapter by seizing the throne, since he is not posted on top of it. In addition to the real Gharnef, three false duplicates of him are present in different parts of the map, which have the same stats as the real Gharnef but lack Imhullu and are not invincible or as powerful.

Gharnef also appears in Chapter 15 as an enemy, situated well away from the goal. He cannot be defeated here and must be simply fended off or avoided, and he will automatically leave of his own accord after several turns.

Personality and character

Originally Gharnef was thoroughly a man of justice and good intentions, despite lacking compassion and love, and was a highly competent student of Gotoh. However, this changed when Gotoh decided to designate Miloah as the successor of Khadein and the Aura tome, owing to his lack of compassion: Gharnef was twisted by jealousy and rage, which prompted him to steal the Darksphere. The creation of the Imhullu tome sealed his soul in the Darksphere, corrupting him even further into the Dark Pontifex.[2]

From then on, Gharnef was characterised by an almost fanatical devotion to despair and vengeance upon humanity, seeking their end through the revival of Medeus. His preferred method of operation was to remain in the shadows while manipulating other people into his service, such as Jiol, Ludwik, Michalis and Eremiya; in the latter case he even threw it in her face as she died and was released from his control.[13] He delighted in the suffering of others, regardless of who they were, and rumours abounded that he had no intention of remaining subservient to Medeus in the long run, plotting instead to slay and usurp him.

Other appearances

Gharnef in the OVA.

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem (anime)

Gharnef appears in a flashback in the first episode, Prince of Aritia. Following Gra's betrayal of Altea at Fort Menedy and the decimation of its army by both Gra and Grust, Gharnef appeared before King Cornelius and offered him the safety of the Altean people (albeit in slavery) in exchange for Cornelius's surrender. Cornelius refused and attempted to attack Gharnef using Falchion, but was easily killed by a single blast of Gharnef's Imhullu.

    Wendell: Elrean, listen to me... Gharnef, along with Pontifex Miloah, were Lord Gotoh's best pupils. But Lord Gotoh saw Gharnef's weakness, and so he left Khadein and the Aura tome to Pontifex Miloah. Gharnef, overcome by jealousy, stole the Darksphere from Lord Gotoh, and created the Imhullu tome. As a result... His heart was trapped within the Darksphere for all eternity. Wrath and envy led him to ruin. Do you understand now, Elrean...?

    Gharnef: Yes, don't you remember? But of course. Poor, poor Eremiah. My spell stole that memory as well. Once upon a time, you felt grief. The corpses of the orphans killed in the war haunted your very existence. You wondered what you could have done so that they might have survived...
    Eremiah: I... never wanted... to let those children die...
    Gharnef: And then, I told you. You had to make the children stronger. Twisted, yes, but they became stronger so they wouldn't die, just as you wanted. Well? Have you remembered now?

    Gharnef: Heh heh... Hypocrites like you and Marth disgust me. Despairing over the orphans' deaths, you fell all too easily under my spell.
