Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Moulder (モルダ, Moruda) is a priest of Frelia who appears in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He first appears in the end of Chapter 1, where King Hayden of Frelia sends him with Eirika's army, along with Gilliam and Vanessa. As a priest, he is quite serious and righteous.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones


Moulder first appears in the end of Chapter 1. After Eirika decides to go into Grado territory, Hayden sadly states that he cannot spare soldiers to help[1]. However, he does send three Frelian vassals to help, namely Moulder, Gilliam, and Vanessa. From this point on, Moulder stays with Eirika's army until the end.

Personality and character

Moulder is a wise, righteous priest. He is always willing to help others in many situations. For example, he coaches Colm on self-righteousness and reflection on one's actions[2]. As a priest, he has come in contact with many people, and he can determine what sort of person someone is very well[3]. He cares a lot about those around him and acts as a sort of father. However, he takes his duty so seriously that he even forgets about his own birthday[4].

Little is known about Moulder's life. He says that Vanessa reminds him of himself twenty years ago. Also, he was present at King Hayden's coronation ceremony, carrying the king's crown[5]. He was quite nervous when someone shouted, "Get ahold of yourself, man!" This caused Moulder to almost drop the crown[6]. The next day, he and Gilliam met and became close friends[7], and have been for a "decade and a half"[8]. This places the beginning of Gilliam's service at fifteen years before the start of the game, in year 788, with the game starting in the year 803.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Moulder Usually a last name, one of many surnames named after trades, such as "Smith" or "Baker". "Moulder" is not a word used today, however; a "moulder" was a skilled mason. It is also spelled "Mulder" or "Molder". It can also be a verb meaning "to rot and decompose"; this is probably not an intended meaning of the character.
Japanese モルダ Officially romanized as Mulder.
Spanish Moulder
