Kellam (カラム, Karamu) is a character in Fire Emblem Awakening. He is a knight in Chrom's vigilante force, serving as an unnoticed shoulder of defense for his allies. He was revealed in a section in the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, showing off different death quotes in casual and traditional modes.

Fire Emblem Awakening


Kellam first appears in Chapter 2:Shepherds, when he volunteers to go to Ferox with the others, though no one hears his words, nor do they see him. He travels to Ferox with the other Shepherds (though he remains unnoticed) and stands in front of the Longfort, trying to attract attention. Eventually, Chrom finds Kellam, and Kellam accompanies him and the Shepherds for the rest of the game.

DLC battle quotes

If you lot have been stealing from everyone, why'd you leave my gold? It's sitting right in my tent! In a bag with the word "GOLD" on the side! Gosh, even my wallet lacks presence.
— Kellam, in The Golden Gaffe.
All this talk of troublemakers in the fields reminds me of home. We certainly got our share on the farm, what with no men to guard the land. Well, I was there, but the ravagers acted like they never even saw me...
— Kellam, in EXPonential Growth.
How can someone dead be so imposing? I'm the one people treat like a ghost, after all. Hmm. If I defeat you, do you think folks might finally notice me?

You MUST be qualified assassins if you've managed to notice me... Normally, I'd be thrilled...but this is just wrong. All wrong. Sleep now, and dance for your "master" nevermore...

Anna's not the only one with lots of siblings, you know... And there's nothing sadder than an empty chair at the dinner table. That's it. I don't care if it goes unnoticed. I'm going to fight doubly hard today!

This place looks like fun. Another kiss of death to my chances of being noticed. Who has time for poor Kellam with all these thrilling distractions? I'll probably get mistaken for driftwood. Do I look like driftwood to you? Hello?
— Kellam, in Summer Scramble.
What's with all this steam? I can't see 10 paces ahead of me... Is that an enemy over there? Hello? Everything is a blur... If this is what I look like to the others, that's really distressing...
