You humans are incomprehensible to us at times. Do you expect your will alone to win you victory?
— Jahn, to Brunnya

(Japanese: ヤアン Jahn) was a dragon who fought in The Scouring, the last remaining natural dragon in Elibe. Shortly after being forced to become a Manakete in response to the effects of the Ending Winter, he was gravely wounded by one of the Eight Legends and retreated to the Dragon Sanctuary, where he spent the next millennium in hiding, slowly healing his injuries. When King Zephiel of Bern unsealed the imprisoned Idenn at the end of the thousand years, Jahn sought him out, confirmed his intentions to surrender Elibe back to dragonkind, and entered an uneasy alliance with him, working to eliminate mankind in the Disturbance of Bern.

The Binding Blade

Role

Following the downfall of Bern, Brunnya arrived at the Dragon Sanctuary to entrust Idenn to the care of Jahn, while she attempted to defend the Sanctuary from the outside. Jahn noted that he couldn't understand what it was which drove Brunnya and her army to be so determined to fight an inevitably losing battle, but nonetheless complied.

When Roy and a small group of his warriors entered the Sanctuary after defeat Brunnya's army, Jahn appeared before them in illusion form and introduced himself as the last natural dragon, explaining the nature of the War Dragons so far exclusively fought by Roy's forces and Idenn's status as an "object" and not a leader. As Roy asked to learn more, Jahn offered Roy a challenge: to storm the Dragon Sanctuary and defeat its War Dragons, in exchange for Jahn slowly telling him more. As Roy progressed through the Sanctuary and seized certain points, Jahn slowly told him the story of Idenn's transformation into the Demon Dragon, the origins of the War Dragons, the creation of the Divine Weapons and the formation of the Eight Legends, the true nature of the Ending Winter and its cause, the transformation of dragons into manaketes, Hartmut's confrontation and sealing of Idenn, and how he himself came into alliance with Zephiel. In turn, he learned of the existence of Arcadia, but dismissed the idea of peaceful coexistence of the two races as nonsense; this opinion and Idenn's origin would soon prove to be troubling news to Fae. Near the sanctuary's peak, he challenged Roy's group, confident of his abilities in the face of his regeneration, but failed and was killed, clearing the way to Idenn herself.

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade

Jahn projects an illusion to visit Zephiel

Role

Fifteen years after Nergal's defeat, following Zephiel unsealing Idenn, Jahn became aware of the action as his power started returning; once it fully recovered, from within the Dragon Sanctuary, he began projecting an illusion out into Elibe to search for Idenn's liberator. Eventually, he identified the man as Zephiel, and projected himself into Bern Keep late at night. He asked Zephiel why he had awakened Idenn and identified himself as a dragon, and Zephiel informed Jahn of his intentions to surrender the world to dragonkind.[1]

Personality and character

Jahn seems devoted to the idea that dragons and humans cannot live together and that one race must be driven out of Elibe for the other to survive. When Roy mentions the existence of Arcadia, a place where dragons and humans live together in harmony, he refused to believe Roy, calling such a place absurd.[2]

  1. "Jahn: After I recovered, I sought the person who had broken the seal. I used my illusions to seek him out and ask his intentions. With you humans ruling the world, I couldn't go in my true form.
    Roy: Wait... I thought that dragons lose most of their power in human form. How do you have the power to create illusions like this?
    Jahn: This sanctuary is the only place that dragons maintain some power in human form. I am also a relatively powerful dragon. Even in human form, as long as I am in this sanctuary, illusions are a simple task. I lack the power to create war dragons like the demon dragon can, however.
    Roy: Your search led you to Zephiel?
    Jahn: Yes. I located Zephiel by following the energy emitted by the demon dragon. I remember the exact words in the conversation we had. "For what reason have you awakened a demon dragon?" I asked him. He was a strange one. With a bored look on his face, he simply asked, "Who are you?" to which I answered, "Dragon." To that, a smile crept onto his face. It was then he told me that he wanted to give the world to the dragons."

  2. "Jahn: Allow me to tell you one more thing. No matter how you may want it, dragons and humans will never be able to live in harmony. The difference between our two species are simply too great.
    Roy: That's not true! I know of a village where dragons and humans live in peace! I know a greater peace is possible with effort!
    Jahn: Humans and dragons living together? Stop your lies. I will not humor such an obvious falsehood.
