Starting class



Wolff (Japanese: ウォルフ Wolf) is a sniper and boss in Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is an underling of Grieth and a boss of Act 3.

Fire Emblem Gaiden


He works under Grieth, and appears in Celica's portion of Act 3; specifically at the Desert Fortress.

With the extra range granted by his Steel Bow he makes for a frustrating opponent, being able to attack from behind his units in relative safety. The desert terrain makes it difficult to approach him, as Celica's units come into his range of attack long before he does theirs.

Like many bosses in Gaiden, Wolff does not have a single line of dialogue.
