That doesn't matter! If we don't do something, we'll always have to live in fear of Lifis. I just can't take it any more!.

The Lifis Pirates (Japanese: リフィス団 Lifis gang) are a band of pirates appearing in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. Their base of operations is an island just of the coast of Ives in the Munster District. They were infamous for preying on the people of Iz before they were dispatched by Leif.

Leif encounters the Lifis Pirates at Iz in the midst of a raid when perusing Raydrik after he kidnapped Nanna and Mareeta. Unbeknownst to Leif, it was actually Lifis himself who set the plot into motion by leaking Leif's whereabouts to the Grannvale Empire, against the advice of his tactician, August.[citation needed] Leif fends off the pirates and defeats their leader Bucks.

Depending on Leif's actions afterward, he may confront the pirates at the island they reside on, where he encounters Lifis. Lifis may be captured by Leif, but lies to Safy—a cleric the pirates had captured—who convinces Leif that he has changed; rather than turn Lifis in to Iz as a captive, he begins working for Leif's liberation army.
