Prince of Verdane

Starting class



Hah, relax! Won’t be long, an’ I’ll be bringin’ Cimbaeth’s lot along for the fun. When I do, all Grannvale’s our oyster. Even Belhalla oughta be easy pickings with nuthin’ around to stop us!
— Munnir, to Gerrard

Munnir (Japanese: ガンドルフ Gandolf) was a belligerent prince of Verdane, the eldest son of King Batu, and the ruler of Marpha Castle in the country's south-east.


On his father's orders, in Grann 757, Munnir led the Verdane army on a raid of neighboring Grannvale, in an attempt to prevent Grannvale from invading Verdane first. Munnir's army besieged and conquered Yngvi Castle, with Munnir personally almost killing Midir to end the siege, then he abducted its stewardess Lady Edain to be a trophy wife, taking her back to Verdane and leaving the Grannvale raid in the hands of his subordinates, intending to return later with his brother Cimbaeth to pillage the country further. Back at Marpha Castle, upon realizing that his brother Jamke had released Edain from her imprisonment in the castle, he deployed his army to retrieve her and Dew and to fight Sigurd's impending invasion force. He was defeated and slain in this battle.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Munnir is the second boss of Chapter 1, guarding Marpha Castle. He also appears as the boss of the Prologue in its first turn, but he leaves the map at the start of the first turn's enemy phase after seizing Yngvi.

Personality and character

Munnir was a brutal man in every respect, viewing the invasion of Grannvale and the ransacking of its commoners as a fun activity. He was easily frustrated by things not going as he liked, such as when his army took so long to seize Yngvi or when Jamke released Edain and Dew. He was particularly misogynistic in his treatment of Edain, and by extension the rest of the women of Grannvale, planning to force her to marry him and talking about her as if she was little more than a mindless object when talking about her to Gerrard.[1] Like his father and Cimbaeth, Munnir was easily misled by Sandima and willingly did anything asked of him by the sorcerer.[2]
