Beran (Japanese: ベルナ Berna) is a boss appearing in Ephraim's route of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a Grado squad commander ordered to relieve Selena of her duties.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones


Beran is the boss of Chapter 10 of Ephraim's route from the start of turn 2 player phase onward. He arrives in Bethroen with Valter, to relieve Selena of her duty on the emperor's belief that she was untrustworthy in the task of dealing with the traitorous Duessel. Considering Valter's comments after Selena departs it is somewhat questionable if the Emperor ever ordered her return.[1]

Beran is unable to complete Duessel's execution or prevent Ephraim's and Frelia's incursion into the area. He is either killed by Ephraim's forces or flees the battle after the tenth turn. If he flees, it is in fear of Valter returning and exacting punishment for his slowness of completing the task. His fate is unknown after his desertion; he is never seen again.

Beran is initially confident in his ability to execute Duessel and repel Ephraim's forces, though this does not last long. After Ephraim's forces rescue Duessel and continue to hold out, Beran becomes terrified that Valter will return and reprimand them extremely harshly and flees. He is absolutely sure that Valter's punishment will be horrible.


Battle quote

Prince Ephraim of Renais... The Obsidian Duessel... Two incredible trophies. Who could ask for more?
— Beran, in The Sacred Stones.

Death quote

Gwaa... Too... strong...
— Beran, in The Sacred Stones.

Retreat quote

Beran: Grrr... They're held on for too long. If this continues, General Valter will have me–– ...Prepare a ship. We must flee. Quickly!
Soldier: B-but General Valter... He'll be so angry...
Beran: We're doomed either way. General Valter will never forgive our failure here... And if we stay, we'll be devoured like those other fools... Our best bet is to give up and escape with our lives.
Soldier: Commander Beran! Wait!

— Beran, in The Sacred Stones, should he still be alive at the end of the final turn of Chapter 10 (Ephraim's route).
