Palmarch (Japanese: パルマーク Palmark) is an NPC in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War.


Palmarch is a former servant of the late Sigurd of Chalphy.[1] During the battles between Seliph's army and the Grannvale Empire in Miletos, Arvis entrusted Palmarch with the task of taking several captured children, including Julia, and escaping with them before the Loptyrian Order could find out. He also gave Tyrfing to Palmarch, to have it returned to its rightful owner, Seliph. However, Manfroy interfered and took Julia away, then sent Loptyrian mages after Palmarch and the remaining children to put an end to them. He and the children were saved by Seliph and his army. Palmarch then gave Tyrfing to Seliph, although he had sworn to Arvis that he would not reveal Arvis's hand in letting Seliph get the sword, and begged Seliph to retake Chalphy and Grannvale.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War


Palmarch appears as a NPC in Chapter 10, after Miletos Castle has been seized. He and five Civilians are stranded at the end of a cliff near Chalphy with several Dark Mages slowly closing in on them. Having Seliph talk to Palmarch gives him Tyrfing, so saving Palmarch from the Dark Mages is an important secondary goal of the final leg of the chapter.
