— Johan, on Larcei/Radney

(Japanese: ヨハン Johan) is the middle son of Duke Danan of Dozel. Along with his younger brother Johalva, he served his father in the Grannvale occupation of Isaach, presiding over Isaach Castle. He came into conflict with his family over the rise of Seliph's liberation army in Isaach, or rather over Larcei/Radney, one of its warriors.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

When Seliph commenced his fight to liberate Isaach, at first Johan and his axe cavalry unit remained stationed as a defensive perimeter surrounding Isaach Castle; once Ganeishire fell to Seliph, the order came through from Danan for both him and Johalva to attack, to which Johan agreed despite his misgivings about fighting Larcei/Radney. Upon encountering Larcei/Radney, he was swayed to side with Seliph's army, provoking Johalva; otherwise, when Johalva was recruited to Seliph's side, Johan was provoked by him getting to Larcei/Radney first, and died in battle with Seliph's army.

Before recruitment, Johan is the boss of Isaach Castle. He starts the chapter as a neutral unit who doesn't move, and becomes an enemy and launches an attack once Ganeishire Castle has been seized. The player has a choice of recruiting either him or Johalva; the brother not recruited remains a boss and must still be fought. If recruited, Isaach Castle becomes a partner castle, and any surviving members of the Isaach Castle army become partner units.

Personality and character

Johan presented himself as something of a romantic, constantly speaking in floral prose, especially when talking to or about Larcei/Radney, an ongoing object of affection for him.[1] He believed that constantly hovering her them was a way to express his love and to protect them, even though it actually greatly frustrated her.[2] A decent person unlike his father, he refused to follow through on performing the more heinous activities of the Grannvale occupation such as the child hunts.[3] For much of his life, Johan held a rivalry with Johalva and the two constantly quarreled, fuelled partially by their mutual interest in Larcei/Radney;[4] their rivalry ultimately resulted in the two going head to head as enemies.[5]
