“...It appears that further conversation would only be a waste of time. Though even if His Majesty desires it not, I will remain and protect him. I cannot allow the legacy of Daein to end here!”
Bryce is one of both the Legendary Four Riders (also called the Great Riders) and Mad King Ashnard's Four Riders and wields the powerful lance Wishblade. He is also old friends with Greil when he was known as Gawain.
Bryce is extremely loyal to Daein and King Ashnard's predecessors. Even after Ashnard reveals to him it was him that killed the previous king, Bryce still believes the royal bloodline must be preserved.
Bryce is a man who has devoted his life to Daein. On many occasions, he is confused and somewhat insulted by the lack of care Ashnard and a few other Daein soldiers had when Daein lost a battle. This is seen if the player has Tauroneo fight him, during which he tells Tauroneo that he is fully aware that what Ashnard is doing is wrong, but believes that there is nothing he can do to stop his king. He is slain in Melior Castle's courtyard by the Crimean Army.
Hard Mode or higherEdit
Bryce: I am Bryce, general of Daein!
Bryce: So you're the enemy general, eh? You're much younger than I had imagined.
Ike: My age matters not. The palace will be ours this day.
Bryce: We will not relinquish it so easily. But allow me to introduce myself as befits a warrior. I am Bryce of Daein.
Ike: And I am Ike of the Greil Mercenaries. Now let us begin.
Bryce: Ena... You, too, have had your fate warped by the king. You should pray that you at least know peace in your final moments.
Bryce: Ah, Tauroneo... I see that you have found another path to follow. Perhaps you were inspired by my old friend Gawain.
Tauroneo: Tell me, Bryce. Beyond mountains of corpses, what do you see Ashnard bringing to the future of this place?
Bryce: ...I see nothing, save for a land of absolute darkness and terror.
Tauroneo: Then why fight by his side?
Bryce: Some men can change, Tauroneo. Others cannot... I am of the latter type. There is no other reason.
“...My strength...was not enough... I could not...protect...my homeland... Forgive me...Daein...”
—Bryce's Death Quote
Defeated by Ike
Ike: Your name was Bryce, was it not? You fought...a good fight.
Bryce: As...did you...Ike. I...commend you... Your style of fencing...is unique... Who was your teacher?
Ike: My father, Greil.
Bryce: I thought...I recognized that style. You truly are Gawain's... I see it...now... The resemblance...is strong...
Ike: Farewell, knight.
- Bryce is the only of the Four Riders to have a new polished portrait for Radiant Dawn which can be seen in the relationship chart. This could be due to the fact he is the only major enemy who does not have an official artwork of his own that most of the deceased Four Riders used in the relationship chart; or was possibly planned to have survived the Mad King's War and been a recruitable unit, but was scrapped.
