Halcyon, despite worshiping Duma seems to be of a kind and wise disposition, as the villagers he seeks refuge with hold him in high regard, but resent Jedah[2][3].

Fire Emblem Gaiden (manga)

FEGM Halcyon 01.png

Halcyon appears in a similar role to his in Gaiden.

Halcyon appears before Celica in Lost Treescape, and saves her and her group from the forest's corruption; the roots and branches of the trees had attempted to engulf them. Hark tells Celica that the forest has become tainted, and he cannot leave it, as he is the only one preventing it from spreading.

Celica understands Halcyon cannot leave, and asks that Halcyon bless Alm. Halcyon complies with her request. Celica gets a vision of Alm fighting; Alm, suddenly empowered, beheads a Rigelian arcanist and causes the accompanying monsters to flee. Halcyon tells Celica it is time to continue her journey to the Duma Tower; however, Jedah casts a spell on Celica and she disappears. After a moment of panic, Halcyon tells Celica's companions that she is not yet dead, and she has been warped somewhere distant.

Trivia

  • His portrait in Gaiden is a recolored version of Nomah's.
