Atlas (Japanese: アトラス Atlas) is a villager appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden. His siblings were kidnapped and and enslaved by the pirate overlord Grieth.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Atlas is the only villager recruited by Celica's party in normal gameplay. He meets Celica in the Mountain Village and joins her when he learns that Celica is planning on opposing Grieth; Atlas's siblings have been kidnapped and he has been looking for a way to rescue them.

  • Note: In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.


This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Atlas's late join time and low level makes him hard to make useful. Generally, the effort put into catching him up to the rest of Celica's party yields low returns. Atlas does not fill any particular niches that are not already taken by units already in Celica's party.

At the very least, he does not need to be trained as a villager at all, as he comes above the required promotion level, and can be promoted to a more useful class right away. Of his base stats only his HP and strength are acceptable for his join time. His other base stats are abysmal, and his low speed growth means he gets doubled often and will be attacking less, blunting the usefulness of his decent base strength.

With promotion bonuses he can make a somewhat competent mercenary, though the player is likely to be using at least one of the four other better mercenaries available to Celica. He is the only unit that joins Celica's party by default that can become a Cavalier, without the Dread Fighter promotion loop, anyway. The usefulness of Cavalier is not particularly high due to the large amount of harsh terrain encountered in Celica's journey and Atlas being too slow and fragile. Atlas's spell selection is abysmal, and Celica has access to a wealth of mages that are much better. Atlas will be outperformed by Valbar as a defensive Knight. Atlas may have some hope as an archer, as he can simply stay away from enemies and do minor damage from afar. However, Leon is very likely to be higher level than Atlas and already perform better than him, so Atlas still needs to catch up before he can even dream of equaling or outperforming Leon.

Atlas can be used to replace someone that has died, though he will still need to be trained significantly in skirmishes.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


Atlas reprises his role as the only Villager in Celica's party.

Personality and character

As with many characters in Gaiden Atlas has minimal dialogue. He seems to care for his siblings, who were kidnapped by Grieth, and is willing to take up arms to rescue them. After the war Atlas returns to his village as a simple woodcutter.


Main article: Atlas/Supports

Base conversations

Main article: Atlas/Conversations



After locating his younger siblings, he returned with them to their mountain village. It’s said that he’s now returned to being a woodcutter like he used to be.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

After returning to the mountain home where his brothers waited, Atlas resumed life as a lumberjack—though his work defending the village from bandits continued to win him admiration. While retired from the army, he was always first to aid the queen in times of need.
