||Ah, yes. My spell book seems to be missing. I need you to go find it.
— Alphand to a soldier
(Japanese: アルファン Alphand) is one of the bosses of Chapter 23 of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a Loptyrian priest tasked with the defense of Manster castle by Raydrik.
Alphand is situated on the gate of Manster castle upon Raydrik's request. During the battle he mentions to an underling that he has misplaced his Poison Tome and requests assistance in searching for it. On turn 5 he is successful in locating it, thus allowing him to commence long-range attacks.
It is likely that he will be slain by Ced during the events of the chapter; though it is possible for Leif's forces to engage and capture or kill him if they are swift.
Personality and character
Alphand appears to have recurring issues with misplacing his spell books; the soldier assisting him in searching for his Poison Tome is exasperated when Alphand mentions he has lost it yet again. Alphand's underling is clearly annoyed by his bad bookkeeping but Alphand seems to either pay it no mind or is oblivious. He is, notably, one of the only Loptyrian priests to be openly thankful if he is captured and released by Leif's forces.
||H-How did you get all the way here...
||Alphand: Who are you!?
Ced: I am Ced of the Magi Squad. We have taken control of Manster, leaving only a small section of the castle. Now, if you would surrender peacefully, I can guarantee your life...
Alphand: Silence! You can't fool me with such nonsense!

||Gah... I don't...want to die...yet...
— Alphand when killed
||You're releasing me! Thank you...
— Alphand when captured and released
