Adrah is the founder of the Kingdom of Akaneia. Originally he was a thief who stole the Shield of Seals from the Fane of Raman, took the gemstones off it and sold them, making it much weaker. Using the funds gained from selling the orbs, Adrah rose an army and used it as well as three stolen weapons, the lance Gradivus, the sword Mercurius, and the bow Parthia, to conquer the world and found the kingdom of Akaneia. Since the shield had given him such good fortune, he made it the emblem of the royal family and it was renamed the Fire Emblem. It may have been because of Adrah's actions that the Fire Emblem became cursed.
