“Look at them... making themselves at home in MY country!”
Chagall (シャガール Shagāru, translated Shagaal and Shagall in fan translations) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the arrogant and foolish king of Agustria during the first generation of the game's events.
As the last in line of Agustrian royalty and a descendant of Hezul, Chagall is blessed with the utmost loyalty of Eldigan, whose ancestors swore to protect the royal family. Sadly enough, Chagall is later manipulated by Manfroy into killing his own father, the much loved King Imuka, between Chapters 1 and 2 in order to seize the throne for himself. As he attempts to move in to invade Grannvale, he is stopped in his tracks by Sigurd's army.
Chagall is saved by Eldigan, and lies low for six months until he decides to try to force Sigurd out of the country in a fit of the utmost indignance. However, he fails once again, resulting in his eventual death at the hands of Sigurd's army. If Lachesis manages to convince Eldigan to negotiate a truce with Chagall, he will promptly order for Eldigan's execution.

*Dropped when defeated
Chagall is not a particularly difficult combatant in either of his appearances, as his overall stats are rather mediocre and he has low accuracy with the Silver Blade. It may take a few turns to defeat him since he has high HP and Defense, but he poses little threat to your units.
“Grr... Don’t underestimate me! Do you really think you can defeat me!?”
—Chagall's Battle quote
Chagall: Hey, aren’t you Eldigan’s sister? How dare you rise up against me!
Lachesis: You’re not MY king! Return my brother to me this instant!
Chagall: Mwahaha, it’s you... Finally realized the truth, did you? You stupid woman.
Ferry: Chagall! You lied to me… I cannot forgive you! Prepare yourself!
“What... How dare you!? I am the king of Agustria, you disrespectful maggots! Crap... I'll make you pay for this!!”
Chagall: Sigurd, you've made a fool of me far too long.
Sigurd: King Chagall, you've killed so many innocent people. And Eldigan... You're a despicable person!
Chagall: Idiot! You don't know what you're talking about! Die, Sigurd!!
Chagall: Heheheh... you're too late. Eldigan's already dead.
Lachesis: It's your fault that my brother... This is unforgivable...
“Uuh... W, wait... ...spare my life...”

“M, my... Agustriaaa...”
—Chagall's defeat quote in Chapter 3
- Despite being stated to be a direct descendant of Hezul, Chagall does not possess Hezul's holy blood. The lack of Major makes sense, as Edain states only the firstborn of a generation can have Major Holy blood, but the lack of minor is still unexplained; it is unknown if there is a reason he lacks it or if it's a hard/software issue.
- In the Mitsuki Oosawa manga adaptation, Chagall behaves in a more cowardly manner, expressing his fear of death. He is later shown to commit suicide by leaping off the top of his castle when Sigurd's army arrives to battle him.
