Heh... Ain't met anybody in the whole world who can take me!
— Waltz

Waltz (Japanese: ヴォルツ Waltz) is one of the sub-bosses of Chapter 2 of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and a close friend of Beowolf.


Following the fall of Heirhein to Sigurd, Macbeth ordered Waltz's mercenary unit to deploy to fight Sigurd, but both Waltz and Beowolf held back until Sigurd's army drew close out of suspicion toward Macbeth.[1] During the skirmish, Waltz decided to fight Sigurd's forces as they drew close to Anphony but ultimetly died against them.

Personality and character

Even though he and Waltz were close friends and partners, both accepted that one day the two may be enemies to each other in the employ of conflicting parties, which ultimately happened in Agustria.[2]

  1. "Waltz: Hrmph. There's the order to move in. Guess we don't 'ave much of a choice now. Bet he's gonna send us in, then 'ave his men turn tail right when we need 'em. I'm stayin' put till I see how this all plays out. Oi, Beowulf, how 'bout you?
    Beowulf: Yeah, I ain't up for this at all, Waltz. That Macbeth swine really rubs me the wrong way. I'm this close to just walking off the job.
    " — Waltz and Beowolf, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  2. "Waltz: Well, do as you see fit. As a mercenary you're free to work for whomever you please. Strange how one day we're fighting side by side... the next day who knows.
    Beowolf: Sure is. I just hope I don't gotta face you ever. I wouldn't stand a chance.
