Men are weak. Our duty as gods is to make them strong. Our hands must be firm.
— Duma

Duma (Japanese: ドーマ Doma) is one of the two gods of Valentia, also known as the War Father (Japanese: 戦神 war god). He is the brother of the Earth Mother Mila, and the patron deity of the nation of Rigel. In ancient times, Valentia was split into two nations in a pact between the two conflicting gods, and Duma's beliefs in strength above all else shaped Rigel into a powerful and heartless empire.


Shaping Valentia

In Valentia's distant past, Duma once dwelled on the continent in exile along with Mila, but he grew to hate humanity's descent into corruption, and the two siblings came into conflict over their different views of an ideal world. Duma and Mila engaged in a long, violent struggle to determine whose ideals should shape Valentia, dragging Valentia into an age of darkness. The struggle eventually came to an end through a pact the two made, dividing the land in two, giving each sibling one half to rule as they saw fit. Duma took the northern half, which became the kingdom of Rigel, and his belief that power was everything guided it into becoming a harsh, militaristic empire with little room for kindness.[1]

Thousands of years later, in the year 604, Duma was involved in the instigation of an all-out war between Zofia and Rigel by providing Falchion to Rigel's Emperor Rudolf in order to imprison Mila. Following this, Zofia fell to a coup by its Chancellor Desaix, then to a successful invasion from Rigel. In response to these actions, Alm led a revolutionary army to defeat Rigel while Celica set out to find what happened to Mila.

Their efforts culminated with Alm leading an assault on Duma's Altar, in which Celica was being imprisoned by the priest Jedah. The two engaged Duma and his force of priests and monster servants in battle, which ended with Alm defeating Duma using Falchion. With this defeat, Duma entrusted the welfare of Valentia and its people to Alm and Celica, and bade them to rule more justly and balanced than he or Mila ever did.


Thousands of years after his defeat at Alm's hands, the site of Duma's resting place, somewhere in Valentia's south-west, became a volcano known as the Demon's Ingle, and was the site of Chrom's battle with Yen'fay. Notably, the Demon's Ingle is not anywhere near Duma's actual place of defeat. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's ending clarifies that Alm and Celica moved his and Mila's remains.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Duma is the final boss of Fire Emblem Gaiden, confronted at Duma's Altar in Act 5. All units are capable of fighting Duma until his HP has been reduced to 52 or less, after which point he cannot be damaged any further by anything except Alm's Falchion or the Nosferatu spell. After this point, units without these who attempt to attack him will do nothing at all and the battle text will say that "their attack was sealed", and leave themselves open to be counter-attacked by Duma.

Fire Emblem Awakening


While Duma himself does not appear, he is mentioned as part of the Demon's Ingle location, which is known in Japanese as Doma's Remains. Like with several other locations on Valentia that appear in Awakening, the location of the Demon's Ingle is not in the location of Duma's Altar, and thus the location of his actual defeat. Duma's name is also listed as one of many Fire Emblem locations a player can select as their home on their StreetPass profile card.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


Duma reprises his role as the final boss of Act 5.

He also appears in the final Memory Prism, which shows him and his sister ending the war between them and forging their divine accord.


Normal Hard

Note: In addition to black magic and white magic, Duma also has proficiency in FE15RankMonster.png Terror weapons.

Fire Emblem Heroes


Duma is the game's second Mythic Hero, and as such was added to the game in a dedicated Mythic Hero update, and was made available for summoning as part of a summoning event released on January 31, 2018. Only one variation of Duma is currently available in Heroes, based on his Echoes: Shadows of Valentia incarnation.

Personality and character

Despite his reputation as a fell god, Duma may not be inherently antagonistic, but he nonetheless came into conflict with his sister goddess Mila over their mutal conviction in their respective viewpoints. Duma strongly adhered to a philosophy of power and military prowess as being the ideal path for mankind, incompatible with Mila's devotion to pacifism.[2] This schism led to a truce in which they divided Valentia into two nations to rule as they each saw fit, and Duma's philosophy took root in his nation Rigel. However, Duma's heavy involvement in Rigel's direction led to the nation practicing his philosophy to an unhealthy extreme, soon becoming a strict and rigid militant regime.[3]

Duma appears to have been aware of the need to end his and Mila's influences on their nations and for Valentia to reach a more balanced state of life. It was he who provided Rigel's Emperor Rudolf with Falchion to seal Mila away,[4] an act which—as planned by Rudolf—led directly to Alm and Celica's uprising against Rigel and Duma and reunification of Valentia.


Battle Quote

Only power holds meaning. Only strength holds sway. Call to me. Thirst for me. Thirst for power!
— Duma, in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Death Quotes

Where...did mankind...find...such power...?
— Duma's defeat voice clip in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, if defeated with any means other than Alm's Falchion.
That should be enough... Hero Alm. I entrust everything to you. Inherit the will of us siblings and govern this land... Carrying both the strength of Duma as well as the love of Mila, guide the people justly... You must not repeat the same mistakes we committed. You must never again disturb our slumber...
— Duma, in Gaiden.
So be it, Alm. I leave Valentia's future to you, her hero. Take from us what lessons you will and shape her into a land to remember. Make her strong like Duma, and fill her with Mila's love. Let our grave mistakes be warnings of where not to tread as you lead her forth. Now, we shall sleep. And never shall you disturb our slumber.
— Duma, in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Game Text
Shadows of Valentia A divine dragon who founded the
Rigelian Empire.
Heroes God of Strength and brother of the goddess
Mila. He and Mila fought over the continent of
Valentia and split it in twain. Rigel, the north of
Valentia, is his domain. Appears in Fire Emblem
Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.
(登場:『ファイアーエムブレム Echoes』)


Gaiden's boxart.
  • Duma's human form design from Echoes: Shadows of Valentia appears to have been based on the unknown character standing in the back center of Fire Emblem Gaiden's boxart. It is possible that the character on the box art was intended to be Duma all along, but this is unknown, as no character appearing in Gaiden resemble the looming figure on Gaiden's boxart.
    • The Duma's Helm item also resembles the helmet worn by the character on Gaiden's cover. Further cementing the resemblance and connection, aside from the item's name, is that Duma is depicted wearing the helmet on the Duma statues in the Secret Shrine.
  • Duma has the highest raw single-bar HP of any character or boss in the entire Fire Emblem series, with 200 on Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's Hard difficulty. Although there are bosses in Three Houses with higher HP figures spread across multiple bars, the maximum HP in a single bar in Three Houses is 199.

Heroes artwork


  1. "Once, two siblings, Duma and Mila, lived on this remote island known as Valentia. Duma, obsessed with power, despised mankind's corruption, and fought with his younger sister Mila, who wished for peace. Eventually, the two agreed to split Valentia: the north ruled by Duma, The south by Mila... Centuries passed. The gods' domains gave rise to two kingdoms: Zofia, the southern realm, and Rigel, to the north." — Opening prologue, Fire Emblem Gaiden
  2. "Nonsense. A world without misery is not the same as a happy one. Misery shapes men throughout their lives. Hardship makes them strong. Smother them with blessings, and they will never learn what happiness is." — Duma in a Memory Prism, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  3. "It was due to the gods that this land Valentia came to be divided into North and South. And in doing so they mistakenly involved themselves too deeply with the concerns of mankind. As a result, the people of Zofia forgot the meaning of toil, and the people of Rigel forgot the meaning of leisure. As things were, we would all certainly come to ruin." — Mycen, Fire Emblem Gaiden
  4. "The fell god Duma was the one who provided Rudolf with the sword that sealed Mila." — A priestess, Fire Emblem Gaiden
