A formless being of unidentifiable fluid. Even mere drops of it are harmful.

Unit type(s)






The Empty Vessel (Japanese: 水の眷属 Familiar) is a class exclusive to Fire Emblem Fates. It is one of three types of monster classes in the game. It is also one of Garon's personal classes, and like the Nohrian King, wields Axes. Its primary appearance is near the conclusion of the Conquest path, when Garon sits atop the Hoshidan throne, and the throne's magic reveals Garon's true form.
