...Now I think about it, there’s been something amiss about everything ever since that wizard Sandima came here. My whole family is at his beck and call, and they just won’t hear a word against him.
— Jamke

Jamke (Japanese: ジャムカ Jamka) was a prince of Verdane, and the youngest of the three sons of King Bator. He alone remained suspicious of the influence of Sandima of the Loptyrians upon his father and brothers, and vocally opposed Bator's new-found aggression toward Grannvale. When his complaints fell on deaf ears, he was convinced by Adean of Jungby to fight back against Sandima with Sigurd's army.


When Adean was captured by Gandolf and locked in Castle Marpha, Jamke broke into it and released her and Dew from imprisonment, instructing them to return to Sigurd while he tried to convince his father to stand down. His attempts at negotiating with Bator and Sandima failed, and so after Marpha's fall to Sigurd he was forced to deploy to fight Sigurd's army. Adean convinced him to fight back against Sandima to save his father, which failed as Bator died just after Sandima's defeat. Afterward, Jamke continued to serve in Sigurd's army until his presumed demise in the Battle of Belhalla.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Jamke is first deployed as a sub-boss in Chapter 1, after both Marpha and Genoa have been seized. He can be recruited by Adean.

Personality and character

In stark contrast to his brutal elder brothers, Jamke is significantly kinder and less inclined toward senseless violence, very much in support of his father's pre-Sandima policies of peace and cessation of war-mongering against Grannvale. He was not fooled by Sandima's corrupting influence on his family and sought to expose him for the treasonous manipulator he was, and while he tried his best to convince his father to cease the conflict and not listen to Sandima, he nonetheless was resigned to fighting back against Sandima when this failed.[1] He remained protective of his father even in light of his mistakes, and allied with Sigurd on the sole condition that his father was not attacked or treated as an enemy by Sigurd's army.[2]

  • There is some inconsistency about Jamke's relation to the Verdane family. While Genealogy of the Holy War itself repeatedly states that Jamke is Bator's son and the brother of Kinbois and Gandolf, the Fire Emblem: Treasure artbook's family tree claims that Jamke is actually Bator's grandson through unidentified parents, and the nephew of Kinbois and Gandolf. [3]
  • At an earlier stage in the development of Genealogy, Jamke was an Axe Fighter possessing fewer skills than in the final version. His change to being a Bow Fighter with more skills was prompted by director Shouzou Kaga taking a liking to Jamke as a character and improving him in terms of gameplay as a result.[4]
