Starting class

Gold Knight

If I smell even a whiff of betrayal, you know what will happen.
— Jerome, to Zeke.

Jerome (Japanese: ジェローム Jerowm) is a Gold Knight and boss in Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is unpopular among Rigelian villagers and even his subordinate knights for his cruelty and extortion of Rigelian people.[1] He controls Zeke, who disagrees with Rigel's attack of Zofia, by imprisoning Tatiana at Nuibaba's manor.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


Jerome appears as a boss early in Alm's portion of Act 4. If Alm did not rescue Tatiana, he fights alongside Zeke against Alm's forces.

If Alm rescues Tatiana, Zeke turns on him.
