— Opening narration of the Prologue

(Japanese: クロード Claud) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He was the lord of the Edda dukedom of Grannvale, a full-blooded descendant of Bragi of the Twelve Crusaders, and head of the Church of Edda. Gifted with divine foresight, he learned the reality of the chaos engulfing the noble houses of Grannvale, and was an ally of Sigurd following the false accusations laid against him about the death of Prince Kurth.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Six months into Sigurd's occupation of Agustria, Claud arrived at Madino Castle with Tailtiu in tow, warning Sigurd of the death of Kurth and the rumors implicating Sigurd in Kurth's murder. Afterward, Claud departed for Bragi Tower to pray and attempt to divine the truth of the conflict. He and Tailtiu emerged from the tower after Sigurd defeated Chagall at Silvail Castle, having learned the reality of Reptor and Langobalt being behind Kurth's death, and having found Valkyrie, long thought to be lost. He subsequently accompanied Sigurd in exile to Silesse, on the march back to Grannvale and in the Battle of Belhalla, in which he foresaw his own death.[2]

  2. "Claud: This war will end in our defeat. All that is important to us will be lost.
    Adean: ...What!?
    Claud: I, too, had a difficult time believing the Lord's words when I was at Bragi Tower. But this is how fate will have it. I also will not likely survive.
    " — Claud and Adean, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  3. "Sleuf: But I heard the voice in Bragi Tower. It said, "When the three pillars of light become one, the darkness in this world will vanish."
    Bishop: The late Bishop Claud's voice...
    Sleuf: Yes. He also said this... "Man of virtue, servant of Bragi... Be my eyes and witness the fate of this world..."
