Rafal was one of the many children Sombron fathered in an parallel Elyos. During the Fell Dragon War, he was friends with Nil—Nel's twin—and, upon the former's request in his dying breath, Rafal assumed his friend's identity and became Nel's adoptive brother. Sometime after, he and Nel defected from their father's side, met Alear, and sided with them in the ensuing conflict.

At the start of the Fell Xenologue, Rafal (under Nil's identity) and Nel summon Alear into their world and ask for their help, as all 3 venture into a quest where they recover the seven Emblem Bracelets to save their version of Elyos.

Fire Emblem Engage


Rafal is a playable unit during the Fell Xenologue under the identity of Nil up until Chapter 4, and acts as the boss of Chapter 5 and 6. He is also automatically recruited in the main story upon its completion under his true identity.

Atoning Dragon Rafal

Divine Dragon Alear & Atoning Dragon Rafal
Alear became the new Divine Dragon Monarch. His/Her bonds with the rulers of each nation resulted in lasting peace.
