“My name is Etzel. I am a traveling sorcerer. Those Grustian cowards stole a ring from me, and were it not for you, I might never have seen it again.”
— Etzel to Marth

Etzel (エッツェル, Ettseru) is a Sorcerer and is one of the exclusive characters in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He had a wife named Ursula, who died in one of many attacks that Doluna launched, and all that is left of her is her ring. During his travels, Etzel was captured by Dactyl, who uses the ring as leverage to make Etzel fight Marth. After Marth defeats Dactyl, Etzel regains his ring and joins Marth intending to end the war.

OverallEdit

In FE12, Etzel has both a great personal base defense and a great personal defense growth. He arrives in time for Chapter 11 and has a high enough tome level to use Excalibur and a decent staff rank. His bulk can make him hard to kill and very useful, even in Lunatic Mode.

QuotesEdit

“Wait for me, Ursula!”
—Etzel's death quote

“Sorry. I mean you no harm, but neither have I any wish to die here.”
—Etzels battle quote upon fighting him.

EndingsEdit

Shadow DragonEdit

Etzel: Spell Slinger

The spell slinger Etzel vanished after the war as quickly as he came. His wanderings took him around the world for years to come.

EtymologyEdit

Etzel's name could come from the Israeli organization, Igrun, whose acronym was 'Etzel'. Or it can be the German translation of Attila the Hun's name, Etzel again. Also, a mountain in the Swiss Alps is called by the same name.

TriviaEdit

  • Etzel is the only recruitable character of the Sorcerer class, excluding reclassed characters.
  • Etzel's late wife shares the same name as Ursula from Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, who is also a Magic User and at the game's end, deceased.
  • Etzel bears great resemblance to Canas from Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, who is also a married dark magic user with a monocle.
