Death feeds me. Death pleases me. I am the essence I consume.
— Nergal to Eliwood

Nergal (Japanese: ネルガル, Nergal) was a sorceror and a former friend of the Archsage Athos. His studies with Athos in Arcadia led him to delve deep into the dark arts surrounding the use of the quintessence of living creatures.

Fire Emblem

Role

Nergal is the primary antagonist of Fire Emblem, leading to the events of the game. He and Athos became friends and found themselves in Arcadia. Nergal found the dragon's research into Morphs and wished to use the knowledge for his own gain, after a conflict with the village elders and Athos, Nergal vanished. Hundreds of years later, he started creating Morphs and used them to seize control of the Black Fang assassin guild, using both to try to incite conflict on such a wide scale that it would generate large amounts of quintessence to facilitate his ultimate aim: to open the Dragon's Gate, seize the quintessence of a dragon, and gain unparalleled power. Though he succeeded in opening the Dragon's Gate and releasing several dragons, he was killed by Eliwood of Pherae and his army before he could execute his plan.

What Nergal never realizes is that his true goal behind opening the gate was to regain his children, he only questioned his desire for power in his dying moments.

Death quote

Why? Why must I lose? Gaa... Not like this... I will not die...like this. With my last breath... tremble...and...despair. Hwah ha ha... Ha... ha ha ha...
— Nergal's default quote
Why? Why must I lose? More power... I must be...stronger... I... Why? Why did I... want power? Gaa... Not like this... I will not die...like this. With my last breath... tremble...and...despair. Hwah ha ha... Ha... ha ha ha...
— Nergal's death quote if two Kishuna chapters are visited and Kishuna is defeated
Why? Why must I lose? More power... I must be...stronger... I... Why? Why did I... want power? ......Quintessence*? ...Don't...under...stand... but... Gaa... Not like this... I will not die...like this. With my last breath... tremble...and...despair. Hwah ha ha... Ha...ha ha ha...
— Nergal's death quote if all Kishuna chapters are visited and Kishuna is defeated

* This is a translation error, he is supposed to be asking about Aenir.

Battle quotes

So you're here, Eliwood. I thought losing Ninian might distract you. Have you forgotten her so quickly? How heartless.
— Against Eliwood in Eliwood's story.
So you've come, Hector of Ostia. Your existence itself was my greatest miscalculation. If it had only been Eliwood, this could have been over. So, my little miscalculation, I will erase you. And leave no trace remaining.
— Against Hector in Eliwood's story.
Did you know, Eliwood? What happened to your friend Hector? What he was thinking as he fought by your side?
— Against Eliwood in Hector's story.
I cannot understand you, Hector of Ostia. Why would you do all this for Eliwood? Is this miserable thing called friendship worth dying for?
— Against Hector in Hector's story.
Little girl from Sacae... You'd do well to vanish. One such as you is no match for me.
— Against Lyn.
Now, I see... You're Sonia's...
— Against Nino.
Hmph... It's you, Jaffar? Turning your sword against me, your master? Do you forget who raised you? You are worthless.
— Against Jaffar.
Heh heh... Athos... Take a good look at me! At my tremendous power!
— Against Athos.
Just an empty vessel... Isn't that what you wanted? You desired to bring back your dead friend. You were my experiment, and I completed my morph. I'm grateful, Renault. Thanks to you, I gained power.
— Against Renault.
