A senior member of the Black Fang, known as the Soaring Hawk. Very just.







Starting class

Nomadic Trooper


The Blazing Blade

Holding a woman hostage during battle is shameful. You, too, are of Sacae, and I've a mind to show you mercy. I will let you die with a sword in your hands. But rest assured... I will kill you all here. But be of good cheer! In dying, you shall all be spared the calamity that is to come!
— Uhai

Uhai (Japanese: ウハイ Uhai) is a boss appearing in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is a member of the Black Fang, codenamed the Soaring Hawk, who defected from his native Sacae due to his beliefs of Brendan Reed's ideology.

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade


During chapter 18 (19 Hector), he is sent by the Black Fang to retrieve the escaped Ninian and as such ambushes the army led by Eliwood, Hector, and fellow Sacaean Lyn, despite knowing the Black Fang was no longer what it once was due to Nergal now being in charge. Upon first appearing, he initially takes Lyn captive, but ultimately lets her go because he wishes for her to die in a more honorable fashion in battle. Uhai is defeated in the battle, but not before giving his opponents directions to the Dragon's Gate, after which the lords all wonder what would have happened had they met him under different circumstances. Sometime afterward, Uhai's quintessence is harvested and brought to Nergal.

Uhai is one of the bosses remanifested as morphs by Nergal in the final chapter; his morph is paired with two generic Sniper morphs in the southeastern room, the first one opened; the player's army eventually defeat Uhai's morph as well as all of the other remanifested morphs in their quest to defeat Nergal, finally putting him to rest.

Uhai holds respect for fellow Sacaens, like Lyn. Like many other Black Fang members, Uhai does not trust Nergal or the changes he has brought to the Fang. Despite his misgivings, he served the Fang to the end, even if he did give Eliwood's group crucial information against the Fang upon his death.

While Uhai himself makes no mention of it, Aion and Teodor appear to have seen Uhai as a rival, or at least an obstacle in their progress as Black Fang members.[1][2]


Battle quote

I am Uhai! I am the Soaring Hawk! Come!
— Uhai, in chapter 18 (19 Hector) Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.
Eliwood: I'm searching for my father. If you are determined to block our progress... Then you shall be moved!!
Uhai: Do your worst!

— Against Eliwood.
Hector: ...Are you the one responsible for Leila's death?
Uhai: ......And if I were? What would you do?
Hector: I'm not entirely sure... But I do know that you would not draw another breath!

— Against Hector.
Lyn: ...How can a proud man like you live as an assassin?
Uhai: ...I sympathize with Brendan Reed's ideology. He wants to help the weak, to break the overly proud... Discussing this philosophy with Brendan and his sons, training together, getting stronger together... For me, the Black Fang was the first place...that felt like home.
Lyn: "Felt"? Is that feeling gone?
Uhai: The Black Fang has changed. Nergal sent that woman......But it's too late for me to change now.
Lyn: Why? Talk to us, we may be able to help.
Uhai: Expect no quarter merely because we are both nomads. Prepare yourself!

— Against Lyn.
Uhai: Oh... So, you're from Sacae, too, are you?
Guy: I am Guy of the Kutolah!
Uhai: Kutolah... The Silver Wolf, Dayan's tribe! They're said to be the strongest on the plains. But you're still a child. Do you fight like one?
Guy: No!
Uhai: Then show me. Come!

— Against Guy.
— The Uhai morph, in the Final Chapter of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

Death quote

Guuu... Well...done...... You are...stronger...stronger than I expected. Out of respect... ...a final gift from me... From here, go south. ...Turn at the rotted tree. Head...west. There lies the path to the... ...Dragon's Gate... Unnh...
— Uhai, in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

Portrait thoril fe06.png
  • Uhai's portrait is based off the Sacaen portrait used by several bosses in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade; primarily the clothing is reused with different coloration and he received a unique head.
  • Uhai gains an extra point of constitution, and as a mounted unit loses one point of aid, as a morph in the final chapter, a trait no other non-generic morph in the chapter possesses.
  • Uhai has a battle quote with Rath in the two prototypes, suggesting Rath may have initially been planned to join Eliwood's party earlier at some point in development.[3]
  • In the NTSC English version of The Blazing Blade, the weapon that Uhai drops in the final chapter, Rienfleche, has an erroneous help text description: "Can strike consecutively". As it has no such effect; this was changed in the PAL English version to match that of the other S-rank weapons: "For experienced units only." This error is not present in Rienfleche's Japanese description.

  1. "Hmph... Uhai must have failed after all. I'm not surprised. We're talking about the shallow wisdom of a Sacaen nomad, after all." — Aion, Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade
  2. "Uhai and Aion's deaths were convenient..." — Teodor, Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade
  3. "Uhai: Oh... so you're from the plains?
    Rath: ... I'm Rath of the Kutolah.
    Uhai: Kutolah... the "Silver Wolf"'s tribe. It's said they're the strongest on the plains... excellent. Rath of the Kutolah! Come without reserve, for I challenge you!!"
