“I've heard rumors… Bramimond, one of the eight legends, devoted himself entirely to the dark. All emotion, all memory… dissolved in a river of dark. That is how he received the power to best dragons…”
Bramimond the Enigma, who is shown to sleep beneath the Shrine of Seals in Bern, was one of the Eight Legends who fought in The Scouring, wielding his tome of Silencing Darkness, Apocalypse. Bramimond is associated with Valor, The Dread Isle, where he perfected dark powers to best dragons by sacrificing his humanity. Alongside the Archsage Athos, Bramimond is one of only two legendary heroes alive during the events of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, and is presumably deceased during the events of Fire Emblem: Binding Blade, as implied during the epilogue just before Athos' death.
As it appears in Rekka no Ken, Bramimond is of no existing class, but internal game data has him listed as a class named after himself and resembling a Druid. His sprite, as seen in the last level when he resurrects Ninian, is clearly that of a unique class but can be said to bear some resemblance to a Dark Druid.
Though Bramimond was originally male, due to his perfect mastery of dark magic, he no longer has any specific gender or personality, instead mirroring the personality and voice of the person speaking to it. Because of this, the Bramimond that is seen in his picture is how the Tactician views him. With Eliwood, he is reserved, with Lyndis, he is resolute, and with Hector, he is impatient. With Athos, he comes across as wise and concerned. Teodor's explanation of Bramimond strongly hints he was born a normal human being like others, but his dark magic skills turned him into what he is today.

Bramimond was the name of the queen of the Saracens and wife of King Marsile in the medieval epic poem The Song of Roland. Medieval poetry is infamous for grossly misrepresenting Islam; the poem The Song of Roland reveals a belief that Muslims worshiped three gods and refers to them as 'pagans' and inferior to the Frankish Christian knights. During the course of the poem, when the Saracen forces are wiped out by a much smaller Frankish Christian group lead by Roland and his companions Turpin and Olivier, Bramimonde comes to the 'realization' that Christianity is the true religion. At the end of the poem, after Roland and company have died heroically in battle against enormous odds, Charlemagne brings Bramimonde back to his capital city of Aix-la-Chapelle where she is baptized and takes the name Juliana.
