Yeah... Well, I'd be lyin' if I said I didn't feel nothin'. But I tell you, it serves him right. He killed a lot of innocent people.
— Lex, on his father's death

(Japanese: レックス Lex) was the son of Duke Langobalt of Grannvale's House Dozel. He was persuaded by his friend, Azel of Velthomer, to come to the assistance of Sigurd of Chalphy in opposing the Verdane invasion of Grannvale, and in spite of his father's intense hatred for House Chalphy, he served with Sigurd in Agustria, Silesse and beyond until his presumed death in the Battle of Belhalla.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Early in the Verdane raid on Grannvale, Lex and Azel arrived from the north to assist Sigurd in fighting the invasion, though he teased Azel over how the latter may have actually been motivated to help by his infatuation with Adean.[2]

Personality and character

Dismissed by his father as "worthless", Lex was uninterested in Langobalt's ongoing feud with House Chalphy, though he still claimed to have only come to assist Sigurd as a result of Azel convincing him to do so.[3] Hotheaded and something of a rebel to his father's ways, he was blunt and exceptionally honest, resulting in him receiving a Brave Axe from a mysterious woman in Verdane as a test of his honesty.[4] In spite of his rough exterior, Lex got along well with most people, exemplified by his close friendship with Azel.

  2. "Azel: Yeah, but with the military on engagement to Isaach, Grannvale's completely strapped! Sigurd and the few soldiers left in Chalphy are out here fighting for their lives! I can't just leave them hanging...
    Lex: Oh really... I'm not quite buying your story, Azel. What aren't you telling me?
    Azel: Wh...what're you talking about!?
    Lex: I'd surmise that you're all worked up about Lady Adean of Jungby. I know you like her.
    Azel:'re nuts!
    Lex: A-ha! Face is getting red there, buddy! You little player you.
    Azel: Lex, knock it off! Now come on, let's get going.

  3. "Sir, just so you know... I'm not here for your little mission. Azel's just a good bud of mine." — Lex, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  4. "Lex: Damn! I dropped my axe!!
    Woman: Was the axe you dropped this gold axe? Or perhaps this silver one?
    Lex: Naw, it was nothing as nice as either of them. It was just an old iron axe.
    Woman: You are very honest! As a reward for your honesty I present you with the Brave Axe. Farewell, Lex...
