War brings only sorrow...
— Mycen

Mycen (Japanese: マイセン, Maisen) is a former Zofian general of great renown, acclaimed by many as "Zofia's greatest hero". In his efforts to stop fellow general Dozer from murdering the children of the Zofian royal family, he was instead branded as the perpetrator and forced to flee to seclusion in Ram Village, taking with him the sole surviving princess of Zofia, Anteze.[1] During his exile, he was visited by the Emperor of Rigel, Rudlf, who entrusted Mycen with both his plans to save Valentia and with his newborn son, Prince Albyne.[2]

Years later, at the onset of war between Zofia and Rigel, Mycen declined to lead the Zofian resistance against Dozer's coup and Rigel, leaving Alm to lead the charge in his place; nonetheless, he soom emerged from Ram to watch over the rise of Alm and Celica as heroic figures in defense of both Zofia and Valentia as a whole.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


When Luka came to Ram seeking Mycen's participation in the Zofian resistance, he vehemently refused to do so or to allow Alm to join; even so, he later arrived at Zofia Castle to confer with both Alm and Celica as they set out on their journeys. Following Alm's defeat of Rudlf at Rigel Castle, Mycen related to him the story of Rudlf and his plans, then joined his army to assist in the fight against Duma.

Personality and character

Mycen's experiences with Dozer embittered him with the outside world, and in particular he opposed conflict and participating in it, though he would later relent and entrust Alm with the leadership of the Zofian liberation army;[3] others came to regard him as cowardly for his refusal to fight, despite this hardly being the case.[4] With respect to his meeting with Rudlf, he remarked that he was both shaken and impressed by Rudlf's resolve to condemn himself, motivating him to take a chance on fate with respect to Alm's role.[5]



Serves as the prime minister in the newly established government of Valentia.
As King Alm I's excellent right-hand man, he threw all his effort into the kingdom's reconstruction.
