— Halcyon to Celica
Celica comes to him for information and help; when Halcyon is spoken to he promotes Alm.
Like his role in Gaiden, Halcyon is a non-playable character who appears in Sage's Hamlet. He is revealed to have been Conrad's caretaker after it was believed he perished in the fire that killed many of his siblings. Halcyon was the former high priest of Duma, having lost his role when he was overthrown by Jedah.
When spoken to by Celica, he informs Celica about her and Alm's brand, uses his magic to allow Celica to commune with Alm, as well as gives him the ability to promote.
Personality and character
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.
- His portrait in Gaiden is a recolored version of Nomah's.
- Halcyon has the dubious honor of having finished in last place of the 774 characters from across the Fire Emblem series featured in the fourth Choose Your Legends poll for Fire Emblem Heroes, with a total of 11 votes; he is tied for this placing with Hayden and Roddlevan.
