“I am Gel. Behold my blade...as I swing it for the last time.”
Gel, or sometimes known as Kel, is the boss of Chapter 19B: Battle in Bulgar (Sacae) in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is defending the city of Bulgar in Sacae under orders from Brunya, and is most likely Brunnya's lieutenant. While he is charged with the defense of Bulgar itself, Roartz is put in charge of Bulgar Keep. Compared to Roartz, Gel is brave and not afraid of death. He is very loyal to his superior, Brunya.
Gel's evasion is nothing short of astranomical, especially on hard mode. Even units who specialize in skill will find themselves dealing with a shaky hitrate. Some axe users might not even be capable of hitting him. His evasion is complemented by a respectable strength stat and the notorious +30 critical boost that Swordmasters in his game come equipped with. He is outright immune to doubling in Hard Mode (though the player could theoretically double him with a Sniper or Nomadic Trooper armed with the Murgleis, if the player could actually access it at this point), and stands a very good chance of doubling most units regardless.
Thankfully, Gel's firepower is severely mitigated at a distance. Due to the mechanics of the Light Brand, he is completely incapable of landing Critical Hits at a distance, and his attacks deal a flat 10 damage. Furthermore, Anima magic is effective against the Light Brand, and extremely accurate Anima magic is readily available in the form of Fire and, should the player decide to use it, Forblaze. As long as Gel is left to an Anima mage or archer with sufficient accuracy and the slightest bit of healing aid, he should eventually go down.
“As a swordsman...this...is inevitable.”
