|“||What we’re after is a little revenge. We want the redhead and her pups. And that’d be you boys.||”|
Ikanau (Japanese: イカナウ Ikanau) is the boss of Chapter 2 of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and the leader of the bandits who kidnapped Mist and Rolf. He continually hurls insults at the mercenaries, especially Titania, who he calls "a snobby, red-haired wench". His flawed self-confidence and underestimation of the capabilities of Ike and his company lead to his downfall.
He and his fellow bandits wanted revenge for what the Greil Mercenaries did to their comrades at Caldea, so they took the young ones hostage and locked them in a shack at the back of their stronghold. He sends a ransom note to the mercenaries' fort, hoping to draw them into bandit territory. His plan works, and the mercenaries show up, demanding that Mist and Rolf be set free. Ikanau tempts the band of mercenaries, telling them that he will set the pair free when Titania arrives, then calls out his troops, ordering them to take out Ike and company while they don't have Titania to protect them.

— Ikanau to Oscar, Boyd or Rhys
|“||Ikanau: Heh heh heh. I’ve been waiting for you, you red-haired demoness. You are going to hurt—and hurt bad. This is for my mates who fell before you in Caldea!
Titania: No matter your motives, you’ve taken helpless innocents as hostages. You’re not fit to be called human. May the blessings of the goddess be kept from you for all eternity!
— Ikanau and Titania
|“||Ike: Will you let the two of them go now?
Ikanau: Sure, you can have ‘em both. If you can beat me, that is!
