Appearance(s)

Caellach (Japanese: ケセルダ Cethelreda) is a character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is one of Grado's Imperial Generals, though he originates from Jehanna. He is power-hungry and ruthless, which makes his ascension in the Grado army quick. Once promoted by Vigarde, he sets out destroying each of Magvel's Sacred Stones. Though he is a boss in the main story, he can be recruited as a special character in the game's Creature Campaign feature.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Role

Caellach makes his first appearance at the end of Chapter 3, when the emperor Vigarde calls the generals of Grado together for a meeting. The three original leaders Glen, Selena, and Duessel are introduced to three newcomers: Caellach, Riev, and Valter. Caellach, having been a mercenary of Jehanna, is ordered to join together with Selena and destroy the Sacred Stone of Frelia. The three veteran generals regard the new arrivals, as well as the emperor's recent behavior, with suspicion. Later, during the story sequence Another Journey, which takes place after Chapter 8, he and Selena are shown to have successfully conquered Frelia; they stand at the top of the Tower of Valni. Without hesitation, he destroys the country's Sacred Stone.

Here the story of the game diverges into two paths, each led by one of the twin lords Eirika and Ephraim. In both stories, he is sent by Vigarde to Jehanna, where he plays a major role in Eirika's story, but only a minor part in Ephraim's.

Eirika's route

During the beginning of Chapter 13, Caellach appears to advise his subordinate Aias on the upcoming battle. The two had been mercenaries together, and Caellach urges him not to lose. However, at the end of the chapter, after Eirika has torn through his army, Caellach ruthlessly kills Aias, without any care for his former partner.

He then creates the conflict of Chapter 14 by taking the queen Ismaire hostage. Carlyle, the former general of Jehanna, is in love with the queen; he is bribed by Grado to betray his country with the reward of Ismaire as a bride. Caellach, accompanied by the sickly crown prince Lyon, takes Ismaire. At the end of the chapter, after the queen refuses to hand over the Sacred Stone of Jehanna, he kills her despite Lyon's weak protests. He then destroys the Sacred Stone, and goes on to command an army against the two twins of Renais.

Ephraim's route

At the start of Chapter 12, Caellach appears as the map's boss. After a turn, Riev appears and persuades him to go to Jehanna, where Eirika is causing trouble. He promptly leaves to take care of the situation.

Eirika and Ephraim united

As Eirika and Ephraim finally meet after their respective journeys, in Chapter 15 they are hit by an assault by two separate armies, led by Caellach and Valter. In Ephraim's route only, a small dialogue happens between Lyon and Caellach. He mentions Joshua as having been a partner of his as a mercenary, and makes a show of ambition by vowing to serve Grado well. This conversation compensates for his minor role in Ephraim's story; in Eirika's version of the chapter, a short talk between Riev and Valter is shown instead.

At the chapter's end, he is defeated (if the player is successful), bemoaning his death and inability to rise to fame and power.

Personality and character

As a general of Grado, Caellach is fierce and has an unscrupulous sense of ambition. Many times he states a wish to attain power and fame, possibly a result of his roots. He originated as a mercenary, working in the same group as Joshua and Aias, but became a military leader of Grado after the emperor Vigarde had a suspicious change in character. He shows little mercy for others, killing a Frelian soldier and Aias without hesitation, as well as destroying two Sacred Stones without a second thought to the safety of the world. His desire for power outweighs any morality he may have, and in the story he plays a villainous role, by antagonizing the characters in battles as well as doing evil for Grado behind the scenes.

You're a stepping-stone... And I'm moving up. Don't take it personally.

I've always wanted to show you who's better, Joshua. And I'm even stronger than I used to be. I'm gonna wipe that smug look off your face for good!

I'm stronger than I used to be. No offence, but you're not in my league anymore. Don't hate me, Joshua.

Bla... Blast... A bit more, and...a crown... would have been...mine...
