The Blazing Blade

Igor (Japanese: イーゴリ Igor) is a minor character in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and a member of the Black Fang; he only appears in a cutscene in Linus's version of Chapter 23E/24H.


While in a village in Bern, Lloyd and Linus Reed spot Eliwood and company, and Lloyd leaves to report to Brendan Reed, ordering Linus to await his return before engaging them. Once Lloyd has left, Linus orders Igor to begin fighting Eliwood without endangering any of the villagers. Igor is hesitant to disobey Lloyd's order, but acquiesces; Igor approaches Eliwood and initiates battle between him and the Black Fang.

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade


Igor appears in the opening cutscene of Linus's version of Chapter 23E/24H. He is not a designated unit in Chapter 23E/24H, and neither appears nor is mentioned again after the opening cutscene.


Igor appears to be loyal to Lloyd and is hesitant to disobey his orders, but is willing, if begrudgingly, to follow contradictory orders from Linus.[1] He also appears confident in Linus's fighting abilities.[2]
