Largo (Thracia 776)
|“||Ah, Lady Olwen. Are you on surveillance again today? It must be hard coming all the way up to a dull place like this every day.||”|
— Largo greeting Olwen
Largo appears during Chapter 10 assigned to a border fortress in Noel Canyon for the Grannvale empire. Before Leif assaults the fortress, Olwen arrives for an update on the defense of the area. Largo comments that it always seems like Kempf sends her to boring places like his fortress. Olwen agrees, but also says getting away from Dandrum Fortress is worth menial missions. Largo and Olwen then have a conversation about Kempf being born into his position and having everything handed to him. Largo invites Olwen to stay at the fortress for a while and Olwen agrees.
When Leif's forces begin their assault Largo tells Olwen to report back to Kempf and request reinforcements, while he stays behind to hold the fortress. Olwen reluctantly departs shortly after.
Largo is either killed or captured by Leif's forces.
In the next chapter it is revealed that Olwen was successful in making her request for reinforcements, however, her superior, Kempf, says that Olwen did not gather enough information on the situation to warrant sending reinforcements; he also did not feel the need to waste them on an old commander like Largo.
Personality and character
Largo is an honorable soldier of Friege and also lends a sympathetic ear to Olwen. According to Dorias, Largo's honorable conduct is trained into every soldier of Friege, even its lowest ranking. Largo appears to have become something of friends with Olwen due to her daily visits, as their conversation upon her arrival is fairly casual. Judging by his comments when released it appears he would prefer an honorable death in combat over being captured.

Largo's portrait from Thracia 776
- "Olwen: I'm telling you, the fort at Noel Canyon was attacked! General Largo is in danger! He needs reinforcements. Please, General Kempf! Send out our army to his aid!
Kempf: You say the fort was attacked, but who exactly are the invaders? What was your mission, Olwen? Surveillance, wasn't it? You fail to even identify the enemy, and then you come running back demanding for reinforcements? I think not.
Olwen: We were caught off-guard, so we need more men! I decided to come back and report first...
Kempf: But what if this enemy that you speak of is merely a trap to lure us away from our post? Our 12 Legions are what make Dandrum the impregnable fortress that it is. There is no way I will send out troops without even knowing who the enemy is.
Olwen: But...what about General Largo! He is out there fighting as we speak...!
Kempf: An aged general or two is no big loss to our army. He would have died some time soon anyway. Now I dont have to worry about it." — Olwen and Kempf, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
- "Yes, the Friege family is a strict and respectable line of nobles, so they enforce honor even into their lowest ranking soldiers." — Dorias, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
