Dark Bishop


Everything I've done has led to this moment: the revival of my lord Loptous. And at long last, it is so!
— Manfroy, revealing the completion of his plan to Seliph

Manfroy (Japanese: マンフロイ Manfroy) was the Archbishop of the Loptr Church, the cult descended from the remnants of the Loptrian Empire. Manfroy was the chief architect of the cult's plot to resurrect their dark god, Loptous, and under his direction the Loptrians plunged the kingdom of Grannvale into war with the other nations and its transformation into the Grannvale Empire under Emperor Arvis. When the Loptous-possessed Prince Julius wrested control of Grannvale from his father, Manfroy acted as an advisor and confidante to the prince.


Schemes across Jugdral

At some point in his life, Manfroy had a daughter. This daughter married a man of whom Manfroy disapproved, and so Manfroy killed him. The child from this marrage—his granddaughter—was Sara, who thoroughly despises Manfroy for killing her father; nonetheless, she lived most of her life with the Loptrians until encountering Leif.

Prior to Grann 757, Manfroy initiated his plan to resurrect Loptous. Having learned of Arvis's status as a descendant of Maera, he blackmailed him into complying with his plans, although he never informed Arvis of much of its detail.[1] He also manipulated Prince Chagall of Agustria into killing his father Imca, ascending the throne himself and declaring war on Grannvale, with the promise of power over the entire world.[2] During the latter part of the Grannvale war with Agustria, Manfroy located and abducted Deirdre, wiped her memory and left her to be found by Arvis, eventually leading to the two's marriage according to his plans. Manfroy was also present at the Battle of Belhalla, and in it personally killed Prince Lewyn of Silesse.

Rise of Julius

The aftermath of the Battle of Belhalla left everything according to Manfroy's plan: almost the entirety of Jugdral was now under the control of Grannvale, itself under Arvis's rule, and Arvis and Deirdre gave birth to Julius, a bearer of major Loptous holy blood and the culmination of Manfroy's ambition. After giving the Book of Loptous to Julius and instigating Loptous's possession of him, Manfroy became something of an advisor to the prince and assisted with the facilitation of the business of running the Grannvale Empire, appointing Loptrian priests as officials of the state, and aided its slow perversion into the darker activities of the ancient Loptrian Empire he sought to restore.

In Grann 776, Manfroy made two visits to the Munster District to confer with Veld, a subordinate overseeing Loptrian operations in the region. The first time he visited for a conference in the bowels of Munster Castle's dungeon, along with Julius and his fiancée Ishtar, unknowingly during Leif's escape from imprisonment there. In the second time, he visited the hidden Loptrian temple in the region to scold Veld for his failures against Leif's liberation army near his war's conclusion, entrusting him with five Deadlords he created himself in a final bid to defeat Leif.

Near the end of Seliph's liberation war, Manfroy travelled to Peruluke Castle in Miletos and abducted Julia, Julius's twin sister and the sole power capable of defeating Julius. Despite Julius's wishes to have her killed outright, Manfroy instead brainwashed her into fighting under his command during the final battle against Seliph in Grannvale, where Manfroy guarded Velthomer Castle. Manfroy can possibly be killed in this battle, freeing Julia feom his control. If Manfroy is not killed, he will die upon Julius's death due to Loptous's power leaving the world.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Manfroy is a boss in the Endgame of Genealogy of the Holy War, acting as the guardian of Velthomer Castle. While his defeat is technically optional, doing so allows Julia to be re-recruited and thus drastically simplifies defeating Julius at Belhalla.

Battle quotes

You fools! How dare you... All my life I've toiled for this moment... I'll show you no mercy!
— Manfroy, in the Endgame of Genealogy of the Holy War.
Manfroy: Kehehe... You've come at last! I've been awaiting you for a long time.
Seliph: Manfroy! It was you who cursed Julia, was it not?
Manfroy: So I did. And so long as I live, my puppet she shall remain! Hee hee hee! She's every bit as helpless before my magic as her mother was...
Seliph: I should have known. If not for you, Mother... Gah! All of this misery... All these agonizing years... It was all your doing from the outset!
Manfroy: Heh... You've realized at long last. Everything I've done has led to this moment: the revival of my lord Loptous. And at long last, it is so! Loptous's advent in the form of Prince Julius is complete, and darkness shall soon engulf the world. You cannot prevent it. Nobody can...
Seliph: Manfroy, you... Father's grief... Mother's despair... If not for you and your foul ambitions, none of this would have ever happened... Damn you, Manfroy! I cannot allow you to win... I will not... You'll NEVER know mercy for your crimes!

— Manfroy, fighting Seliph in the Endgame of Genealogy of the Holy War.

Death quotes

Lord Julius... The Loptrian Empire...is yours...

Officially romanized as Manfroy. Romanized instead as Manfloy in the Super Tactics Book.













Traditional Chinese


Manfroy or Manfloy



  1. "Loptrian priest: What of Duke Arvis, Your Excellency? Is he in agreement with you plan?
    Manfroy: Why, of course. As a bearer of the Dark God’s blood, what choice does he have? Not even one of Arvis’s stature can afford the wider world learning this, lest he be burned at the stake as a “heretic”. Granted, whether one as arrogant as Arvis could keep quiet on this, I cannot say.
    " — A Loptrian priest and Manfroy, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  2. "Manfroy: Prince Chagall... No, KING Chagall now. Clearly you’ve made your decision.
    Chagall: Manfroy? Yes, just as we agreed. Nobody suspects I was behind my father’s death. ...There’s no going back now, but even so, I still don’t know if we even stand a chance.
    Manfroy: Remember, Grannvale still adheres to that tawdry old peace treaty with you, and their entire army is distracted in Isaach. Strike now, and you could not possibly fail.
    Chagall: Hmm, you’re right. The downfall of Grannvale will mark the rise of Agustria as Jugdral’s new leading power!
    " — Manfroy and Chagall, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  3. "Granddaughter of Lord Manfroy, archbishop and great priest of the Loptr Church." — help text description of Sara: Lady of Loptr, Fire Emblem Heroes
