Grima (pronounced /ˈɡrimə/?[1]; ギムレー Gimurei) is an antagonistic Earth Dragon, who in ancient times sought to conquer the continent of Archanea/Ylisse. He is reviled in most of the world as the "Fell Dragon", but the Grimleal in Plegia worship Grima as their god.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

Approximately 1000 years before the events of Fire Emblem Awakening, Grima attempted to conquer the continent by blood-bonding with and possessing humans, with the support of a cult of followers, |the Grimleal. Grima was stopped by a man with whom Naga had blood-bonded and who wielded the Falchion (and therefore very probably a descendant of Marth); in his defeat, Grima was slain and is in the modern era considered to be "sleeping". The man then went on to become the first Exalt of Ylisse.

The remainder of the Grimleal after Grima's defeat founded the nation of Plegia, and the cult waited for a child to be born with pure enough blood of Grima to be his vessel, thereby facilitating his return. To ensure that the past would fall into disarray, the future Grima traveled back in time with the body of Robin of his timeline and attempted to possess Robin. However, after being weakened by the time travel, he was unable to fully possess them, weakening him further and leaving Robin with amnesia.

After Validar's failure to assassinate Emmeryn, and his subsequent death, he is revived by Grima to complete the mission of reviving Grima at his full power. Validar becomes the king of Plegia after Gangrel's defeat, and he introduces Grima in Future Robin's body to Chrom and Robin as the Hierophant. To their shock, they realize the Hierophant resembles Robin (due to being the body of the Robin of the future).

Validar is defeated by the Shepherds again after stealing the Fire Emblem from Chrom. Despite this, the Hierophant approaches them and reveals that they look like Robin because they are Robin from the ruined future, who was successfully possessed by Grima and killed Chrom. The Hierophant succeeds in reviving the Fell Dragon by their own hand.

Chrom quickly sets out to perform the Awakening ritual to receive Naga's power and defeat Grima. He and Robin battle the fell dragon and severely wound him, leading to two possible outcomes. If Chrom deals the final blow, Grima is sealed away for another thousand years, and Robin expresses their regret at not being able to stop him permanently. If Robin deals the final blow, s/he permanently destroys Grima with his own power at the cost of his/her own life. However, the bonds Robin made with the rest of the Shepherds eventually brings them back to life.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Role

Some time before the events of the game, a Thabean alchemist named Forneus sought to create the "perfect life". During his studies, he learned how to make an army of the dead, which would become known as the Risen. Using divine dragon blood, Forneus was able to create a powerful fell dragon named Grima. Grima started off small until Forneus gave it his own blood, which increased its size. Overtime, Forneus started to hear Grima's voice in his head, until he was driven to insanity.

During the post game of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Alm, Celica and company explore the Thabean ruins after crossing the seas to Archanea. On the tenth basement floor, they encounter a fell dragon known as "The Creation". This fell dragon is thought to either be a prototype version of Grima or just Grima in a weakened state.

Personality and character
