Fighter (Path of Radiance)
Warrior (Radiant Dawn)


Boyd (Japanese: ボーレ Bole) is a member of the Greil Mercenaries. His brash character contrasts that of his brothers, Oscar and Rolf. He carries a friendly rivalry with Ike, and is a valuable fighter and ally. Boyd often makes poor choices, but is a loving brother and friend. His relationship with Mist is confusing, but he seems to have special feelings for her.

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance


Boyd first appears in Mercenaries, the prologue chapter of Path of Radiance as one of the Greil Mercenaries. Greil suggests that Boyd be Ike's sparring partner. In the chapter, to explain the gameplay of the Fire Emblem series, Ike is pitted against Boyd with a trainer sword. After Boyd is defeated, he leaves the map and Greil comes instead. When the battle ends, Boyd refuses to admit that he lost fairly.

Boyd comes with Ike in Chapters 1 and 2, helping as a sort of rival to Ike, along with his calm brother Oscar, a lance knight. In Chapter 5, he votes in favor of keeping Princess Elincia safe. If he is still alive by Chapter 9, he scolds his brother Rolf for trying to fight when he is only a child. Still, Rolf resists and joins as an archer.

In Chapter 13, Boyd, Oscar, and Rolf discuss a new technique in an info conversation. They try to plan out a new powerful attack that they can do together, but their meeting does not seem to be very productive. Later in the same chapter, Boyd can recruit Gatrie.

In Chapter 19, in another info conversation, if Boyd and Oscar are promoted and Oscar chose to use bows as his weapon, then they continue planning their special attack. However, Ike comes over and they try to keep it a secret. After this conversation, the three brothers can perform a Triangle Attack.

Radiant Dawn

Boyd, Mighty Soldier
Boyd trained day in and day out, so as not to lose his spot to “some stupid rookie”. He never did, either.

Boyd, Mighty Soldier (A support with Mist)
Boyd trained daily, so as not to lose his spot to “some stupid rookie”. Mist humored her husband’s insecurities.

Death quote

Blast! I’m not… I’m not supposed to… Oscar… Rolf… Forgive…me.
— Boyd, in Path of Radiance.
No! I’m… This isn’t… Big brother… Rolf… I’m…so sorry…
— Boyd, in Radiant Dawn.
Ugh! They hit me good. I hate to say it, but I have to pull back!
— Boyd's retreat quote in part 3 chapter 13 of Radiant Dawn.

Battle quotes

Are you sure you don’t need me to stay behind and watch your back?
— Boyd's escape quote in Path of Radiance.
Shinon! I couldn’t care less who you decide to work for… Heck, I’d hoped you were dead! But even so, Daein? You couldn’t find anything better than this? What were you thinking? [...] Don’t be ridiculous! [...] Keep talking, Shinon! I’m gonna beat the obnoxious clean out of you.
— Boyd, when fighting Shinon in chapter 18 of Path of Radiance.
Uh... Are you sure I shouldn’t be stationed in the rear?
— Boyd's escape quote in Radiant Dawn.
