— Midir, on defending Edain

Midir (Japanese: ミデェール Midayle) was a knight in the service of Grannvale's House Yngvi. He led the defense of Yngvi and its Lady Edain in the Verdane invasion in Grann 757, and while his efforts failed, he subsequently fought in Sigurd's army in its invasion of Verdane to rescue Edain and beyond until his presumed death in the Battle of Belhalla.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Role

Determined to protect Edain to the end even in the face of Verdane's overwhelming force, Midir was defeated and severely wounded by Prince Gandolf of Verdane, leaving Yngvi Castle open to the enemy and Edain to be abducted by Gandolf. When Sigurd recaptured Yngvi, he found Midir, who despite his injuries was determined to assist Sigurd in rescuing Edain.

Personality and character

Midir was devoted to Edain and determined to protect her even to the end,[1] if mostly because of an unrequited romantic interest he had long held in her.[2] Even after Edain's rescue, he chose to be indebted to Sigurd for his role in rescuing Edain and thus swore to continue serving him beyond Verdane.[3] It is possible, however, that his interest was born at least initially on a superficial level, as upon meeting Edain's sister Brigid for the first time he loudly voiced his interest in her appearance as being more beautiful than that of Edain.[4]
