“We are knights... If the king orders an attack, we must oblige.”
—Douglas in a support conversation with Igrene

Douglas is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. He is the Great General of Etruria, and is very loyal to his country. Douglas is also the adoptive father of Lalum. He first appears as an enemy, but if he is left alone he will become a playable character in the next chapter, and you will access the gaiden chapter for that level. Douglas was the first person to know that Elphin was truly prince Mildain and helped him escape to the western Isles with Lalum, on the ship owned by Geese. After the war, he retired to live a peaceful life, with Perceval succeeding him as Great General.

In Chapter 16, the enemy Douglas will not attack Lalum or Elphin. Either can talk with him, but he will remain an enemy.

Douglas can be a decent wall if Barth, Bors, or Wendy were not used. Despite having low movement, a trait typical of the General class, he is probably best known for going the distance, no matter how far. He has extremely weak growths in everything but HP, but has a strong starting strength and defense with a high HP, so he can be almost as good of a wall as Perceval can. A good chunk of the enemies in Sacae and Ilia cannot even hurt him. He will have a tough time against magic users though. His hit rate can be lacking at times, as well as his speed. Douglas has fast supports with Elphin, Perceval, Cecilia, and Lalum, and those supports can give him a much needed boost in avoid and critical. If you did not want to deal with Bors and Wendy's weak starts and want someone like Barth but with better accuracy, Douglas can prove to be useful. 


  • According to a Japanese gaming news website, Douglas landed 57th place on the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: Binding Blade.
