—Boey in Gaiden
Boey (ボーイ Bōi, also translated Boowy in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is an eager young apprentice mage who is devoted to Celica's protection. He is like a younger brother to Mae, who constantly teases him but joins him out of concern for both her and Celica. After the war, he stays with Mae, finding happiness in their bickering.
As a unit, he suffers from very poor speed and is often doubled. He also suffers from learning magic at a very slow rate. He has good defense for a mage.
In Chapter 2, talk to him at the Novis Monastery (needed to progress).
Thunder (Lv 3)
Arrow (Lv 12)
Excalibur (Lv 18)
Boey, like Mae, is a unit that starts off usable when you get him at the beginning of Celica's route. He quickly learns the Thunder spell, making him a 3 range unit. However, Boey isn't even as good as Mae when you get him, and he only gets worse with time. He starts off with very low base Speed that will never get fixed due to his abysmal Speed growth. Boey has very high HP growth for a Mage, and extremely high Defense growth(tied with Cliff, Teeta, and Savor for the highest Defense growth in the game). Unfortunately, this perk is ruined by the fact that his Speed is so awful that virtually every enemy in the game will Double Attack Boey, and his base Defense is low enough that the high growth will not make his defense formidable enough to withstand physical attacks.
Boey isn't completely worthless. He is capable of strong single hit damage, particularly after obtaining Arrow. The problem is that just about every other character in Celica's route is better than Boey, so it's unlikely that you will want to use him much past Chapter 2.

*Enemy only, joins unequipped
- (If Mae is alive)
As always, he does nothing but bicker with Mae. Perhaps, for the two of them, that is true happiness?
- (If Mae is dead)
Now that Mae's gone before him, he realizes his own heart for the first time. However, time cannot be turned back.
“Lady Celica, don't get down on my account!”
—Boey's death quote in Gaiden
- Boey has red hair in his in-game portrait in Fire Emblem Gaiden and his artwork in The Complete. But, in the game's manual and in Fire Emblem: Awakening (probably due to the match from the game manual artwork), he has green hair instead of red.
