Grado cannot afford to lose a brilliant tactician of my stature! No one will blink if any of you worthless toads dies. But if I die-- You should be happy to fight, kill, and die in my service!
— Gheb

Gheb (Japanese: ゲブ Geb) is a boss appearing in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a Grado commander and strategist tasked with guarding the Grado-Frelia border fortress known as Rigwald.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones


Gheb is the boss of Chapter 9 of Ephraim's route.

He is the commander leading the defense of the strategic Fort Rigwald. Shortly before the arrival of Ephraim's invading forces he captures Tana. After Tana's capture, several of his subordinates, including Amelia, voice their disapproval of the war between Grado and the rest of Magvel, but Gheb quashes the dissent with threats. Later, he intends to spend the evening "interrogating" Tana[1] but his plans are thrown askew when Ephraim launches his full assault on the fortress.

Despite his confidence in his abilities, he ends up losing Fort Rigwald and is slain by Ephraim's forces.

Gheb is an extremely arrogant and self-absorbed leader who openly does not care at all for the lives of his subordinates; when one of his soldiers questioned the war, Gheb threatened the soldier that, if he didn't follow orders, he would be burned at the stake.[2] Gheb is under the impression that he is a valued brilliant tactician of Grado,[3] though it is unclear how highly ranked he actually is.

Alteration of the Japanese name, as below.



Referred to in the internal files as "GEB". May be a play on the Japanese デブ debu "fat", which is the character's most distinct design trait.[4]

  1. "Heh heh... I like her. Throw her in a cell. I'll spend the evening giving her a thorough interrogation. Heh heh heh..." — Gheb, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  2. "Gheb: Yeah, I heard you. Talking about not fighting, are you? Losing your nerve? The punishment for treason is harsh. You'll burn at the stake.
    Soldier: B-but-- It's not just me! Even General Duessel is opposed to this war!
    Gheb: Duessel? You'd side with that washed-up coward? And who is your commanding officer? Is it Duessel? Come on, out with it!
    Soldier: Y-you are, Sir Gheb.
    Gheb: That's right. So that should make it clear whose orders you follow, eh? You got that, dolts? If you do, then shut up and get in formation. No one cares whether you minnows live or die anyway. Got it?
    " — Gheb and a Soldier, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  3. "Grrr! Stinking interruptions... Form up, you useless worms. Don't let those dogs near the throne. Grado cannot afford to lose a brilliant tactician of my stature! No one will blink if any of you worthless toads dies. But if I die-- You should be happy to fight, kill, and die in my service!" — Gheb and a Grado soldier, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  4. "One thing I've noticed with the characters Debias and Gheb is that, as fat characters, their names seem to be warpings of the Japanese word for fat (debu). It would have probably been more accurate in the English version, actually, to change their names to something that gives that impression to an English-speaker." — gringe, FE6 Localization Patch v1.0 - Seriously, we did something, Serenes Forest Forums, Published: July 11, 2015, Retrieved: August 1, 2015
