— Scipio

Scipio (Japanese: スコピオ Scopio) was the Duke of Grannvale's House Yngvi, and the successor of his late father Andrey. While the rest of his surviving family allied with Seliph's revolution, he remained loyal to the Grannvale Empire and fought on behalf of Prince Julius against Seliph.


Scipio assumed rule of House Yngvi at some point following Andrey's demise in the prelude to the Battle of Belhalla. In the final confrontation between Seliph's liberation army and Grannvale, he worked in concert with Duchess Hilda of Friege to trap Seliph en route to Friege Castle, ambushing them with the Beige Ritter as they passed a thick forest, but he failed and was slain.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Scipio is a minor boss in the Endgame, appearing following the seizure of Dozel. He and 17 Beige Ritter subordinates appear in the south-east corner of the map once at least one player unit crosses near the forest en route to Friege.

Personality and character

Scipio holds a zealous belief in the dogma of the Empire, in that he considers his aunts Edain and Brigid to be traitors whose children deserve to be killed. He sought to avenge his father's death at the hands of Sigurd's army by defeating Seliph's army.


Battle quotes

I'll take this opportunity to avenge my father, Andrey!
— Scipio, in the Endgame of Genealogy of the Holy War.
Scipio: And what are you supposed to be?
Febail/Lester: The name's Febail/Lester, son of Brigid/Edain.
Scipio: What? As in my dear aunt Brigid/Edain?! Well, then... The traitor's spawn shows his disgusting face at last! I certainly won't object. After all, I get to kill you, here and now!
Febail/Lester: Heh, took the words right out of my mouth!

— Scipio, when fighting Febail/Lester, in the Endgame of Genealogy of the Holy War.
