Dayan (Japanese: ダヤン Dayan) is the chieftain of the Kutolah tribe of Sacae, known by the epithet "The Silver Wolf" and renowned as the greatest warrior in all of Sacae. In the Disturbance of Bern, even in the face of a crushing defeat, Dayan successfully continued to lead a guerrilla resistance against the Bern occupation of Sacae.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Role

At Roartz's manor on the outskirts of Bulgar, Dayan arrived partway through Roy's final battle for Sacae against Roartz, seeking to continue the fight against Bern even though none of his comrades remained. He approached Roy and thanked him for his assistance in liberating Sacae, then allied with him.

Personality and character

Dayan is a calm, measured and wise leader, excelling in counselling and reading other people. He has a strong sense of honor as a Sacaen warrior, despising underhanded tactics and trickery in combat,[2] and lamented that the circumstances of resistance against Bern required him and other rebels to resort to the underhanded practices of guerrilla warfare rather than an honorable head-on confrontation.[3] In the face of the overwhelming odds against him, he had resolved to keep fighting until his inevitable death, until he met Roy and allied with him.[4]

Dayan's experiences with fighting Bern and other invaders have taught him of the risks of foreign armies having a presence in Sacae and the potential threat of authoritarian rule over Sacae by even an initially benevolent force.[5] He maintains a strong adherence to the mythology and faiths of Sacae, and is initially wary of Jodel out of concerns that the latter would try to force the Elimine faith on him;[6] instead, the two end up bonding over discussing the similarities and differences of their religions, indicating Dayan's interest in the subject. Indeed, his "Silver Wolf" title was inspired by Sacaen mythology attesting that humans are descended from wolves.[7]

  3. "My clan was always fighting against Bern and the clans that submitted to them. We were forced to reside to guerilla warfare instead of going up against them honorably, face to face." — Dayan, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  4. "Good, the mansion is in chaos. I shall fight those Bern troops alone, to the death!" — Dayan, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  5. "Dayan: But I want to ask you one thing. Once this battle is over, do you intend to withdraw your troops right away?
    Roy: After this battle?
    Dayan: Yes. Sacae belongs to us Sacaens. If authoritarian rule by Bern is only to be replaced by Etrurian rule, then we would have to fight you next.

  6. "Dayan: Do you need something from me? If you wish to preach, I already have a deity to worship.
    Jodel: No, I did not come to preach.
    Dayan: ...Are you sure? Do you not have to serve your god?
    Jodel: Of course, my mission is to guide those in need of direction. But you Sacaens already have the sky and earth to worship. God would not approve of me pushing my beliefs on to you.
    Dayan: ...I see.
