Starting class



The hour is come for the world of man to return to the gods' control! It is the dawn of an age of fear and chaos, cradled in Duma's shadow!
— Jedah

Jedah (Japanese: ジュダ Juda) is a cantor and major antagonist in Fire Emblem Gaiden. He became the highest ranking follower of Duma after ousting Halcyon, the previous high priest.[1]

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Jedah is one of the major antagonists of Gaiden's plot. His children, Marla and Hestia are also followers of Duma, though his youngest daughter, Sonya rejected the faith and fled to Zofia, and became associated with Grieth's pirates some time before the events of the game. Also before the events of the game, Jedah ousted the previous high priest, Halcyon.

Jedah is fought twice during the events of Gaiden, though he is only intended to be defeated in the final chapter. The first time he appears, in Act 4, is merely to taunt Celica, as well as to show off his ability to summon Mogall.[2]

His next appearance is in the final battle of the game. Jedah fights alongside Marla, Hestia, Gharn, and Duma himself against Alm and Celica.

In both appearances, Jedah is protected by a powerful spell that makes him mostly immune to enemy attacks.[3]

Jedah reprises his role as a major antagonist in the remake. Once again, he is fought twice and will only be defeated in the final chapter.

He also retains his spell that nullifies enemy attacks, which manifests in the Duma's Gift skill.

Personality and character

Jedah, while twisted, is apparently devout in his faith to Duma; he is willing to offer his daughters as sacrifices as a gift to Duma, being rewarded via empowerment.[4] He also seems to have legitimate concern for Duma's well-being.[5] He has a somewhat arrogant personality, appearing before Celica to flaunt his power and his ability to summon Mogalls. He also persuades Celica into offering herself as a sacrifice for Alm's passage though the necrodragon infested mountains of Rigel.


Battle quotes

Jedah does not have any battle quotes in Gaiden.

I've no use for any of you save Anthiese. Now begone!
— Jedah in act 4
Sonya: Jedah!
Jedah: Well, if it isn't Sonya.
Sonya: You've no idea how long I've waited for this day. You stole the lives of my sisters and cursed them to become witches! I will avenge them with your blood!
Jedah: Their souls were offered to Duma freely, and both received endless bliss in turn. Only a fool would refuse to see a truth so plain. You are a burden to your wise sisters, and I shall relieve them of it now!

— Jedah to Sonya in act 4
Bow before Duma's eminence! Kneel before his awesome power!
— Jedah in act 5

  • Despite the presence of other major antagonists from Fire Emblem Gaiden like Rudolf, Grieth, and Desaix, Jedah was excluded from the character list comprising the 2017 Choose Your Legends popularity poll, meaning votes could not be cast for him. The reason for his exclusion from the poll is unknown; though he appears on the ballot in Choose Your Legends: Round 2.
