Caineghis (uncle)



Starting class



Radiant Dawn

Skrimir (Japanese: スクリミル, Skrimir) is the nephew and designated successor of Caineghis and a playable character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Skrimir appears as an unrecruitable NPC in the Part III, Prologue, in the southwest of the map, alongside his squad of cats and tigers. He will charge the Begnion soldiers and attempt to reach the arrival point. The goal of the chapter is for Skrimir to reach the arrival point, and as such his death is a Game Over. Skrimir next appears as an unrecruitable NPC in the Part III, Endgame, in the west of the map, again accompanied by some cats and tigers. He will move and attack enemies for the duration of the map, and his death is no longer a Game Over.

Skrimir joins at the end of the Part III, Endgame and is forced into the Silver Army. He is force-deployed in both the Prologue and Chapter 3.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Skrimir is a lion laguz unit who becomes playable starting from part 4 (and was an NPC for two chapters in part 3) and is forced onto Micaiah's team. His base stats are excellent all around, with most of his unshifted stats except magic and resistance being double digits, becoming high 20s to 30s when shifted. In particular, his defense base is high enough that he will outright receive zero damage if hit. His resistance, however, is extremely low, worsening his weakness against fire magic, like other beast tribe laguz.

Skrimir starts with the Provoke skill. It is situational at best, and detrimental at worst. Even though he can one round many enemies with relative ease while shifted, the same cannot be said for his unshifted state, who can die from a few good hits. His transformation gauge will also deplete faster due to most enemies targeting him. He also has innate Resolve, though his durability is high enough to prevent his HP from falling into range of triggering the skill, and is generally overkill when it does activate. His high weight can allow him to use Smite effectively. Quickclaw can give him a minor 2-range counterattack, though it is unreliable, and Skrimir (while shifted) is mostly dodgy enough to not allow him to get hit in the first place despite having decent enough speed to proc it. With his high speed, Skrimir can make versatile use of Adept.

Skrimir has a fire affinity which gives attack and accuracy, both of which are rather overkill, but still appreciated nonetheless.

Personality and character

When he is introduced, Skrimir is extremely reckless and bloodthirsty. He has little patience for higher planning, only cares about glorious battle, and believes that the beorc armies of Begnion will face him in honorable combat instead of making good use of their advantages. As the war progresses, he grows as an individual and leader. He comes to appreciate the wisdom of the beorc, and in particular develops a deep respect for the Branded tactician Soren. After the war, he becomes a much-beloved king of Gallia.

Battle quotes

Ugh! I shall concede this battle... Next time, victory shall be mine! Count on it!
— Skrimir's escape quote in Radiant Dawn.
Nailah: Ah, the lion prince! You'll give me the challenge I'm craving, won't you? I'm having trouble finding decent enemies.
Skrimir: Gladly, Queen Nailah. I've wanted to fight a wolf ever since I heard the legends of your people as a cub. Let me show you why I am the heir to the lion king. You'd better hope you eastern laguz heal as well as we do.

— Skrimir, when fighting Nailah in Part III, Endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Yuma: Death to the filthy sub-humans! Despicable, rabid beasts!
Skrimir: Yes! Feed my rage! Make me hate you. Give me reason to crush your bones in my jaws...

— Skrimir, when fighting Yuma in Part IV, Prologue of Radiant Dawn.
Numida: Ahhh! What a fearsome beast! Only the dark god could create such a monstrosity!
Skrimir: What’s wrong, little beorc? frightened? if you cannot look upon me, you cannot hope to defeat me!

— Skrimir, when fighting Numida in Part IV, Chapter 3 of Radiant Dawn.

Death quotes

Goddess Ashera... ...You gave me this life... And so it you...
— Skrimir, in Radiant Dawn.
Skrimir: Graarr! That stung! But it's nothing compared to that time–
Micaiah: General Skrimir! You must fall back! Don't waste your life here. If you were to die, so many would mourn your passing.
Skrimir: Hmm... I hear the truth in your words, maiden. I will do as you ask.

— Skrimir, in Part IV, Prologue of Radiant Dawn.
