This was all part of our dream to resurrect Lord Loptyr. And now, we've gotten our wish.
— Manfroy, revealing the completion of his plan to Seliph

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

Biography

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 Loptyrians until encountering Leif.

Prior to Grann 757, Manfroy initiated his plan to resurrect Loptyr. 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 Loptyr holy blood and the culmination of Manfroy's ambition. After giving the Book of Loptyr to Julius and instigating Loptyr'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 Loptyrian priests as officials of the state, and aided its slow perversion into the darker activities of the ancient Loptyr Empire he sought to restore.

In Grann 776, Manfroy made two visits to the Manster District to confer with Veld, a subordinate overseeing Loptyrian operations in the region. The first time he visited for a conference in the bowels of Manster 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 Loptyrian 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 was killed in this battle, freeing Julia from his control.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

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.

  1. "Loptyrian 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.

  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!
