Genealogy of the Holy War

Ares, why would you of all people get wrapped up in a girl like that?
— Javarro

Javarro (Japanese: ジャバロー Jabarro) is a boss appearing in Chapter 7 of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the leader of a mercenary group and has raised Ares since the death of his parents.[1] During the events of Genealogy of the Holy War he is under the employ of Bramsel and is stationed at Dahna.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Javarro and Ares begin Chapter 7 stationed at Dahna; Bramsel, their employer, expresses interest in defeating Seliph, who has a large bounty on his head. The plan of attack is to wait for Seliph's forces to tire themselves out and to head south. Shortly before deploying, Ares gets in a minor altercation with Bramsel over the latter's conduct with either Lene or Laylea, a dancer providing entertainment.

Once Seliph's forces take Melgen Javarro and Ares enter the battlefield. While riding to intercept Seliph's army, Javarro questions Ares on why he cares so much about some dancer and Ares asks Javarro what his point is. Javarro then vaguely says that Bramsel is likely doing as he likes with the girl now that Ares has left. Ares, furious that Javarro deliberately waited until they had left to say this, breaks off from the mercenary troop to ride back to Dahna. Javarro tells Ares that mercenaries should only have casual relationships with women but this does not convince Ares in the slightest. Javarro thinks Ares's disobedience is unacceptable and tells Ares as such, though Ares does not care and declares that he is severing all ties to the group.

During the battle Javarro is killed by Seliph's forces, possibly by Ares himself depending on the player's actions.
