Miklan Anschutz Gautier[2] (pronounced /'mɪklɑn 'ɡɑtieɪ/[key]; Japanese: マイクラン=アンシュッツ=ゴーティエ Miklan Anchutz Gautier) is a character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is the older brother of Sylvain, and appears as the boss of Chapter 5.


Miklan was born as the eldest son of House Gautier, but was denied his inheritance by his family after learning that Sylvain, his younger brother, was born with a Crest. Since then, Miklan bullied Sylvain during their childhood because of this.

Some time before the events of Three Houses, Miklan became the leader of a group of bandits. In Chapter 5, he stole the Lance of Ruin from its hiding place in House Gautier. Archbishop Rhea assigned Byleth and their class to rout Miklan and his bandits and take the lance back. The group succeeded in defeating Miklan's bandits and weakening Miklan himself, but the Lance of Ruin suddenly transformed Miklan into a monster known as the Black Beast, causing most of his men to flee in terror. Byleth and their class defeated and killed Miklan for a second time and retrieved the lance.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Miklan is the boss of Chapter 5. Right after being defeated, he will transform into a Black Beast, warping every playable unit into the center of the map.

Personality and character

Miklan is defined by his jealousy and hatred of his younger brother Sylvain due to the latter being born with a Crest, resulting in his own disinheritance. Sylvain describes him as a bully who always went out of his way to make him miserable as a child. He also has a desperate desire to prove himself, to the point where he is willing to steal his family's Hero's Relic in order to do so.
