— Isaiya

Isaiya (Japanese: イサイヤ Isaiya) is a captain in Begnion's Imperial Occupation Army in Daein. He was part of an operation in Nevassa to prevent the Dawn Brigade from escaping the city, and he was the leader of the squad guarding the alleyway which Micaiah and the Brigade chose to break through to escape.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Isaiya is the boss of Part I, Chapter 1 and acts as the commander of the Occupying Army units in this chapter. In Easy Mode, the chapter's objective is to defeat Isaiya. In Normal and Hard Mode, the objective is to reach the escape points at the top of the map, one of which Isaiya stands upon, so it is possible to kill the other unit occupying them and end the chapter without fighting him.

Isaiya viewed the chance to be the one to bring down the Dawn Brigade as an opportunity for advancement in his career,[1] and was absolutely confident that he, a warrior in his prime, would be able to defeat them and achieve this.
