The Wind Caller

Starting class

Lord of the Desert

I will not assist you. I have lived apart from the world of man, which disgusts me so. This war disgusts me also.
— The Wind Caller

Saint Macuil (pronounced /ˈmækjuˌɪl/[key][2]; Japanese: マクイル Macuil) was a significant figure in the history of Fódlan. He is one of the Four Saints who fought alongside Seiros in the battle against Nemesis. He is also known as the Wind Caller (Japanese: 風を呼ぶもの That which calls the wind).


Macuil is one of the Children of the Goddess. After the massacre perpetuated by Nemesis in Zanado, he joined forces with Seiros and the other surviving Nabateans, becoming one of the Four Saints; unlike his peers, Macuil refused to share his blood with his human allies due to despising their species for having one of their kind responsible for killing Sothis, merely limiting himself to crafting weapons he and his allies would use in the upcoming conflict with Nemesis. Macuil later participated in the War of Heroes and left to parts unknown once it came to a close, with some even speculating he had perished during it.

In Imperial year 1185-1186, Macuil can be found in a paralogue exclusive to the Verdant Wind route as Claude seeks some of his weapons hidden in a temple located in the Sreng Desert. Macuil attemps to drive Claude's army off but is then defeated and falls into a deep slumber. Claude the seizes the opportunity to look for any weapons located in the area, eventually finding the Sword of Begalta.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Macuil is the boss of Claude's paralogue, The Sleeping Sand Legend. As such, he can only be fought on Claude's route, Verdant Wind.

Personality and character

Macuil holds a great disdain for humanity, due to the crimes they committed against his brethren, the Children of the Goddess. As such, he refuses to participate in any current human wars and instead secludes himself in the desert. Because of this, there are no humans that are known to bear his Crest—as he was likely not willing to gift it to them like Seiros, Indech, Cichol, and Cethleann did, and House Nuvelle from Adrestia used magic to conceal their Crest of Noa as if it were of Macuil's—and there are no relics that are tied to his Crest either.

Hmmm... Those who stand before me... How long has it been? Hundreds of years? Thousands? You have the stink of Sothis upon you... Let us find out whether you share her power.

The Wind Caller: I smell those detestable 10 Elites... Who are you?
Claude: I'm the grandson of the grandson of the grandson of the elite Riegan. Now tell me who you are!
The Wind Caller: I am your family's enemy. If you carry the blood of the 10 Elites, you cannot be permitted to live.
Claude: What do you mean by that? And what's that Crest on your forehead?
The Wind Caller: No more talk. If you wish to survive, you must destroy me!
