— Azel

(Japanese: アゼル Azel) was a nobleman of House Velthomer of Grannvale, and the younger half-brother of its Duke Arvis. In Grann 757, he set out to join Sigurd in repelling the Verdane invasion of Grannvale, having heard of the threat to Adean of Jungby by Verdane forces, along with his best friend, Lex of Dozel.

Biography

Azel was one of the many illegitimate children of Duke Victor of Velthomer, and his mother was a maidservant to Victor's wife, Cigyun, who was a plain woman who had had a difficult childhood; Azel was conceived as the result of drunken behavior by Victor, in what may have been a rape. When Victor learned of the maid's pregnancy, he violently attempted to drive the maid away, which Cigyun attempted to stop. Azel was born just before Victor committed suicide and Cigyun disappeared. When Victor's legitimate son Arvis took the Velthomer throne, although he had the rest of Victor's conquests and illegitimate children exiled, he took Azel and the maid in and treated them as his own family, although the maid died some ten years after this.[2]

Growing up among the nobility of Grannvale, Azel became close friends with Lex of Dozel and Tailto of Friege. Early in the Verdane raid on Grannvale, Azel and Lex arrived from the north to assist Sigurd in fighting the invasion in opposition to Arvis's wishes, though Lex teased Azel over how the latter may have actually been motivated to help by his infatuation with Adean.[3] Following the Verdane skirmish, he continued to fight with Sigurd in Agustria, Silesse and beyond until his presumed death in the Battle of Belhalla.

Personality and character

Though he hated fighting,[4] Azel was nonetheless driven to support Sigurd in repelling the Verdane invasion by the threat it posed to Adean's life, as a result of his ongoing romantic interest in Adean herself[3] which he developed upon first meeting her at a young age.[5] Despite holding a deep respect for him as both a brother and a father figure, Azel was terrified of Arvis[6] and believed that he considered him to be a nothing but a burden incapable of meeting his expectations.[7]

  2. "Also, Arvis exiled all but one of his father Victor’s mistresses. He ordered their children to be demoted to servants or exiled. The only mistress left was a girl who was his mother Cigyun’s maid servant. Although she went through a tough childhood and wasn’t beautiful, she had a kind heart and frequently took care of Arvis. Even Arvis could not be cruel towards her.
    Although Victor got his hands on the girl from the momentum of being drunk, when he knew the girl got pregnant he yelled, cursed, used violence, and tried to drive her away. The person who scolded at this was Cigyun, and the very child who this girl got pregnant with was in fact Azel. When Victor died, Azel was just born.
    Arvis hated (like truly hated) his father for making mother sad for immature thoughts. When that father commited suicide, and Cigyun ran away, a cold mask always floated around the young expression. But, he thought of that mistress and Azel as his own family.
    From there, the mistress was grateful for Arvis, and served him by taking care of the space around him, but she also died of disease around 10 years later.
    From then on, there was no sight of a woman around Arvis."

  3. 3.0 3.1 "Azel: Yeah, but with the military on engagement to Isaach, Grannvale's completely strapped! Sigurd and the few soldiers left in Chalphy are out here fighting for their lives! I can't just leave them hanging...
    Lex: Oh really... I'm not quite buying your story, Azel. What aren't you telling me?
    Azel: Wh...what're you talking about!?
    Lex: I'd surmise that you're all worked up about Lady Adean of Jungby. I know you like her.
    Azel: Y...you're nuts!
    Lex: A-ha! Face is getting red there, buddy! You little player you.
    Azel: Azel, knock it off! Now come on, let's get going.

  4. "Then why did you do such a silly thing? Besides, I thought you hated fighting." - Adean, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  5. "It's just that I always held you in such high regard. The first time I saw you my heart started beating so fast! I was just a kid, too! But ever since that day you were the only one for me." - Azel, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  6. "Azel: Boy, you're strong, Lex. I start to shake just when I'm around Arvis.
    Lex: I can't figure your brother out. I never thought of him as a bad guy. He was always kind to us.
    Azel: Yeah, he always meant more to me than my dad did. But sometimes I feel like I don't even know him. He can get pretty violent.
    " - Azel and Lex, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  7. "Sigurd: Geez, I could never ask you to fight. Does your brother, Lord Arvis, know that you're here?
    Azel: Er... no, I doubt it. He's back in Belhalla commanding the Royal Guard. Actually, he specifically forbade me from stepping outside the capital.
    Sigurd: I bet he did! Have you considered the consequences of leaving like you did?
    Azel: Yeah, but... I shouldn't say this, but Arvis scares the living hell out of me! I don't think I live up to his expectations. I... I feel like I'm just a burden on him.
