Tine, no one's ever going to lay a hand on you again. You've got my word!
— Arthur to Tine, as they approach Friege.

Arthur (Japanese: アーサー Arthur) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He first appears in Chapter 6.

A mage of the Thrud bloodline, Arthur was separated from his mother and sister years ago. When he hears word of his family's whereabouts, he leaves Silesse, bringing with him a pendant as the only proof of his heritage. In his travel towards Alster, he meets and befriends Fee, a soldier in training from Silesse. The two ultimately end up fighting alongside Seliph and his liberation army.

Should Tailtiu have survived the first generation without getting married, or remained deceased by the end of it, Arthur's cousin, Amid, fills in for the role left behind.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Arthur is a noble of House Friege, who are descendants of the crusader Thrud. His mother, Tailtiu, fought alongside Sigurd. After having been ambushed and defeated at Belhalla, Tailtiu hid in Silesse together with her son. However, a few years after this, she was found and taken back to her family's lands. Arthur, by unknown reasons, was left in Silesse. During his years living alone, he specialized in wind magic.

Several years later, he learns that his sister is still alive in Alster. He immediately leaves for Alster, and at some point of his travel, he meets Fee, a pegasus knight in training, who offers to take him to Grannvale.

Once they reach Sophara, they meet Seliph's army, which is Fee's destination. He thanks her for the ride, stating that he can walk from there to Alster. In view of Fee's surprised reaction, he explains his motives to her, and Fee replies she is in a similar situation, as she is looking for her older brother. A few jabs later, his travel partner asks for his plans; Arthur, thankful for Fee's help, decides to pay her back in the form of company in Seliph's army.

As the army approaches Alster, they are confronted by Friege's elite troops - and among them, a girl with a pendant indentical to his. Overjoyed, Arthur presents himself to the girl as her brother and explains their story, managing to convince her to join the Liberation Army. Later, they face Bloom and Hilda, and Arthur can finally avenge his destroyed family.

After the Grannvale Empire is defeated, Arthur goes to his father's house to rule it. If his father was not a nobleman, he inherits House Friege.

Other appearances

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Portrait arthur fe05.png

Among the unused data of the game, there are portraits for several characters from Genealogy of the Holy War but in the style of Thracia 776 - one of them is for Arthur. This could mean that he was planned to appear in the game.

Fire Emblem: Hikari o Tsugumono

Arthur attacking Castle Alster in Hikari o Tsugumono.

In this manga adaptation done by Nea Fuyuki, Arthur is first seen in Chapter 6, trying to wake up an unconscious Fee, who had been shot down by Febail and his Yewfelle. When the Liberation Army comes to them, Arthur asks them to help his friend, and later both of them join Seliph's group.

When the Liberation Army attempts to free Alster, Arthur is deployed in Leif's group, the one in charge of storming the castle. Once inside the castle, they encounter a shy female mage, whom Arthur recognizes as his little sister Tine. However, before he can truly explain himself, Tine ends up as a hostage, so that Reptor can defeat the rebels. With the help of Shannan, Arthur manages to explain the situation and convince Tine to defect; her sudden change of heart gives Leif an opening to defeat Leptor.

In this incarnation, Arthur is boisterous and a bit disrespectful, acting most of the time as a comic relief.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Arthur is currently featured on three cards in Fire Emblem Cipher.

As both this Arthur and a Fates character with an identical English name have both featured in Cipher, there are a number of schemes devised among the fandom in order to differentiate the two. As this Arthur first appeared in Cipher after the Fates Arthur did, the full card names in the below box will treat this Arthur's name as "Arthur (Jugdral)", in line with how Japanese Cipher parlance differentiates Gray from Asugi, Deen from Deen, and Linda* from Linde.

One of the below cards' epithets is still in raw, untranslated Japanese; it needs translation.
