Starting class


No one enters the lair of the Pirate King and starts squawkin' orders but me!
— Barth, to Celica.

Barth (Japanese: ダッハ Dahha) is a brigand and minor boss in Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is a boss appearing in Act 2, and is the only boss in that chapter. He is a subordinate of Grieth, and his actions have drawn the ire of many people, including Valbar, Kamui, and Leon. He and his fellow pirates have been terrorizing Zofia after the disappearance of the goddess Mila.

He is, quite simply, stated to be a mean man,[1] he is specifically responsible for the deaths of Valbar's, Kamui's and Leon's families.[2]

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Barth is the first boss of Act 2.
