Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

I am Valter, the Moonstone, Grado’s finest general! And you’re just a corpse who does not know he is dead.
— Valter to Seth

Valter (Japanese: ヴァルター, Walter) is a boss character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is one of Grado's Imperial Generals, known as the Moonstone. Having been stripped of his rank before the events of the game, he is reinstated and charged with destroying the Sacred Stone of Renais. Valter is a ruthless warrior and a relentless adversary, and destroys anyone threatening his plans.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Role

Valter is a prominent antagonist through the first three-fourths of The Sacred Stones. He appears in the Prologue: The Fall of Renais and wounds Seth in a cutscene.

After this he remains a looming, but not direct, threat for the next 14 chapters. Valter acts in the background, instigating several parties. In particular, he kills fellow imperial general Glen and commands Selena back to the Grado capital on treason charges.[1]

Finally, he appears in Chapter 15: Scorched Sand as one of the two bosses of the chapter, alongside Caellach. Along with Caellach he is killed by Eirika and Ephraim's combined forces.

In the Creature Campaign Valter can be recruited as a bonus unit. In this appearance, and like all other Creature Campaign characters, he has no dialogue or support conversations with other characters.

Personality and character

Valter is a cruel, violent man in Grado's army. He eagerly seeks out violence at any available opportunity, even blatantly stating that he wished for endless war after he murders Glen.[2] He also has an expressed interest in 'taming' Eirika, and seeks to break her and make her his.[3]

However, his extreme tendencies do have a source. Duessel mentions to Cormag an incident with Valter and a cursed lance. Duessel states that Valter, while not a 'gentle lamb', was not a unreasonably violent madman before using the lance. Valter's newfound bloodlust had him exiled from Grado entirely,[4] further fueling Valter's bloodlust with hatred, causing him to hold a grudge against Glen and Grado's old command as a whole.[5]

Quotes

Battle quotes

I've no use for these bloodless minnows... Give me prey that will sate my bloodlust... I hunger!
— Valter
Valter: What now, Cormag? Have you betrayed your oaths and your emperor?
Cormag: I have. I can no longer serve Grado. But I must know the truth, Valter, and you will tell me. You're the one who murdered my brother aren't you?
Valter: ...Hmph. No reason for lies, seeing as you're nothing but a traitor. You're right, Cormag! I was the one who cut your brother down. He was just like you, a weak, pitiful fool.
Cormag: ...... Ha... Ha ha ha...
Valter: Why do you laugh, dolt?
Cormag: How can I not? I've dreamt of revenge, chased it for days... And now it's here before me. Oh, Valter... Your death will be slow and agonizing.

— Valter to Cormag in Chapter 15: Scorched Sand, Eirika route
Valter: Is that you, Cormag? Even you have turned your back on your emperor?
Cormag: .......
Valter: Don't tell me you stand there thinking you can beat me. You're not strong enough. You know this to be true.
Cormag: .......
Valter: If you swear fealty to Grado again, I may let you live. You don't want to die an oath breaker, do you? Well? Will you crawl before me and beg for forgiveness?
Cormag: ...Yes, I have broken my vows, Valter. And yes, it may be I who falls when we tilt lances... But a dog like you will never see me crawl.
Valter: Brave words from a traitor. Let's see if your lance is as sharp as your tongue.

— Valter to Cormag in Chapter 15: Scorched Sand, Ephraim route
Valter: Mmm... I've been waiting for you, Eirika!
Eirika: Who are you?
Valter: Have you forgotten? We met once at Castle Renais. No? Look closely, Eirika. Do you not remember the face of he who will master you?
Eirika: Wha–!?
Valter: Yes, resist. It’s much more fun for me that way. Come, Eirika. I should like to tame you.
Eirika:I am here on a mission. One that I swore to my brother I would fulfill. I will not be stopped by the likes of you!

— Valter to Eirika in Chapter 15: Scorched Sand
Valter: Hello Ephraim, I let you flee once, but this time, there’s no escape.
Ephraim: Escape? I'm not going anywhere. I came here for you. I came here to defeat you.
Valter: What's this? A scurrying little mouse that roars like a lion? Are you saying this time will be different than the last? Will you finally provide me with some amusement?
Ephraim: I'll do far more than that. I'll provide you with a sorry end to your messy life.

— Valter to Ephraim in Chapter 15: Scorched Sand
