Appearance(s)

Volke (Japanese: フォルカ Volke), also known as Fireman, is an assassin who appears in both Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He has worked for multiple employers, including Ike, Greil, and Bastian. After Greil touched Lehran's Medallion and killed Elena, he hired Volke to kill him if he ever went mad again. For Ike, Volke appeared as a common thief with information. He appeared saying he had information, and was going to give it to Ike in exchange for Gold. Later on in Path of Radiance, Ike learned the truth and found that Volke was really an assassin. In Radiant Dawn, Bastian hired Volke to help hunt down Izuka, the scientist who created drugs that turned Laguz into Feral Ones, among other unspecified jobs.

Even though both him and Sothe begin as thieves, Sothe becomes a whisper while Volke becomes an assassin.
