“Go, my children! Make your master proud! And do it quickly. I am needed elsewhere... But I promise to linger long enough to see them suffer... Heh heh...”
—Algol to his Risen army in Death's Embrace
Algol (アルゴル Arugoru, Argo in the Japanese version) is an enemy boss character from Fire Emblem: Awakening.
He appears in Chapter 21, where he is tasked by Validar to prevent Chrom and his forces from escaping Plegia Castle. Despite the numerous traps set in place, Algol fights them and is killed in battle.
Algol also appears in the DLC Death's Embrace. In this DLC, Algol was responsible for destroying villages and capturing the strongest of its inhabitants before turning them into Risen for his own gains. This shows that he has some knowledge of magic, as there are no human enemies encountered in the chapter as he calls the Risen his "minions".
He shares the same portrait with Morristan.

Algol is the name of a trinary star system in Perseus. It is Arabic for 'winking demon', and is named for the fact that β Persei B regularly eclipses β Persei A, so that the star appears to periodically brighten and dim.
- Algol's pre-battle quote may be a reference to the game Impossible: Mission. When the player first starts the game, the villain says "Another visitor. Stay awhile. Stay forever!"
