Interesting. But I've little interest in following someone else's orders. ...Unless they're handed down by a man who can fight for himself.

Personality and character

Priam is notably similar to Ike in many respects: he is not the greatest thinker there is, but he is as talented a swordsman as they come. He is very sociable and easy to get along with, and is fond of telling stories from his travels. In his travels across the world, he pursues power and to further develop himself as a warrior, and so enjoys fighting aginst those who are stronger than him.


Main article: Priam/Supports

As with the other characters obtained via the SpotPass paralogues, Priam can only support with Robin.


Priam - Radiant Hero
Priam vanished like a breath on the wind. Did his pursuit of true power lead him to a quiet corner of the map? Or did he move to another continent — one where the Radiant Hero's legend held more meaning?

Priam - Radiant Hero & Robin* - High Deliverer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone — she loved her husband, Priam, above all else.

DLC battle quotes

I don't give a rat's tail about gold, but Risen are another story. Do you fight like your brethren back in my world, I wonder? Try to be as informative as you can while I prod at you. It'll be over quick.
— Priam, in The Golden Gaffe.
I can tell already you'll make me stronger. Good. I'm more than happy to take your life to better mine.
— Priam, in EXPonential Growth.
Thirty-six generals, and every last one a menace. One slipup will cost me my life, or perhaps more... Excellent! This is one Outrealm well worth the journey.
— Priam, in Infinite Regalia.
I've always believed that strength alone brings victory, but perhaps I was wrong. On a battlefield like this, to rely purely on strength would be a fatal mistake. In any case, you and yours were dealt a cruel hand... I hope I can offer you rest.
— Priam, in Death's Embrace.
The heat here is fierce. It'll sap your strength and warp your vision... But if one could master fighting here, battling elsewhere would be a breeze. Next time I set off on a training journey, I know where to start...
— Priam, in Five-Anna Firefight.
So you're the ones responsible for taking our roster? As a new recruit, I was hoping to use it to learn more about my companions. ...Why am I wasting my breath explaining this to you? Let the fighting commence!
— Priam, in Roster Rescue.
When I heard you laid siege to this land, I was prepared for an immense battle... Then I found out it was just a beach. And you were just...well, you. Let's just say I regret having prepared so thoroughly... I suppose I can only pray that you're far mightier than you appear to be.
— Priam, in Summer Scramble.
These hot springs seem like a fine place for a warrior to rest and recover. But as a man who strives for strength, being here is somewhat disheartening... A moment's respite may be too long. A soul's edge must never be dulled!
— Priam, in Hot-Spring Scramble.

Other appearances


  • Priam's Japanese name, Paris, is likely named as a reference to the early stages of the development of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance: his ancestor, Ike, was named "Paris" in a very early pre-release image of Path of Radiance[1]. Before Priam was formally unveiled with the SpotPass release of his sidequest, the presence of this name in the game's credits and support listings for Robin led to much speculation about him being connected in some way to Ike.
  • Priam shares his Japanese voice actor with Frederick.
  • To further Priam's connection with Ike, he possesses both Sol and Luna, the skills that make up Aether, which was Ike's signature skill in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
  • Three of Priam's starting skills are Swordbreaker, Lancebreaker, and Luna, which can be learned by the Wyvern Lord, Griffon Rider, and Great Knight classes; these classes are inaccessible to Priam.
