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.
