Not to be confused with a similarly named Fire Emblem Gaiden character, Jerowm.

“I'm not fit to fight for anyone.”
—Gerome in Paralogue 11

Gerome (ジェローム Jerōmu, Jerowm in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening. He is Cherche's son from the future. Gerome can potentially be the brother of Morgan. His birthday is September 1. He is voiced by Orion Acaba in the English version and Tarusuke Shingaki in the Japanese version.


Gerome was once a happy, but somewhat shy child. He had pride in his parents and bonded well with Minerva, but his parents were often off fighting Risen to protect their country. Gerome eventually lost his father, and later his mother. After Cherche's death, Minerva flew back to Gerome and stayed with him for the rest of his life. He also received Cherche's wedding ring and has worn it ever since. Eventually, Gerome receives word from Lucina that she and the other children will return to the past to prevent the ruinous future. Gerome, however, felt that no matter how hard they try, destiny cannot be changed. While he believes that the past cannot be changed, he accompanies them anyways so that he can release Minerva into the wild, as most of the wyverns in his time had been killed.

In Gerome's paralogue, the bandit Morristan entered the Valmese Wyvern Valley, so he could catch and sell the some wyverns that inhabit the area. Gerome is approached by a local villager to help, but he refuses. However, Chrom's army arrives to help the villagers. Cherche enters the battlefield and the two eventually talk. Athough Gerome initially refuses to fight, Cherche manages to convince him to at least fight for this battle. After the battle, Cherche talks to Gerome to introduce Minerva to his wyvern mount. As Cherche compares Minerva to his wyvern, she discovers that the two are identical; in fact, they are the same wyvern. Gerome shows her his ring, which is the same as the one Cherche is wearing. He then says he wishes that the two never encountered each other, as he only came back in time to release Minerva back into the wild. When Cherche asks why, Gerome admits that he does not want to lose his parents a second time. Cherche commends him for being so strong despite all he's been through. Gerome eventually decides, for the time being, to join Chrom's army.

In his parents' supports, he initially refuses to interact with them. With Cherche, she tries to make him warm up to her by asking him to train her to ride Minerva better. He relents after much persuasion, and as a result of their time together he is finally comfortable enough to admit the reason he is staying in the army. He wants to ensure that she survives the war this time, as his childhood self was not capable enough to prevent her death. In his support with his father, his tough facade slips to reveal his tenderness regarding Minerva, which his father teases him about, making him flustered and angry. In the final support he is finally fed up with his father's teasing and tells Minerva to eat him. However the wyvern refuses to eat his father since she accepts that he is her family. Gerome understands to stop being as hostile and calls him Father, although only for that one instance.

As a member of the Shepherds, he tends to keep his distance from everyone in the camp, especially those in the current timeline. Gerome does not want to meddle with the past as it could cause unforseeable changes to the future, even though the rest of the future children are rather relaxed about doing what they wanted to in the past timeline. In his supports, he often pushes people away when they try to get to know him. However, he will eventually relent if the person is persistent enough, or if he thinks things through. Although he gives off an air of not wanting anything to do with the people in the army, he actually cares about them, and often does things in the background, or watches from a distance. In his supports with Laurent, it is revealed that although Gerome himself does not interact with the soldiers, he would ask Laurent about the health of the army, and do inventory checkups with him, often making suggestions. In their A support, he finally asks Laurent to go with him to do the checkups, as he felt that he was being a coward for refusing to talk to the troops face-to-face and using Laurent as a proxy.

Gerome's mask is a matter of curiosity for many of the Shepherds, often with them bugging him about why he wears it, much to his annoyance. The usual reason that he gives for wearing the mask is to prevent his enemies from reading his next move, but this is not the ultimate reason. In a support conversation with Severa, he eventually admits that he wears the mask to distance himself from people. Cherche in the Future Past DLC also comments that he uses it to hide the sadness he feels. It is also implied he uses it to mask his emotions, as he is actually rather shy and gets flustered easily, despite his outward curt persona. In his supports with Lucina it is revealed he lent her the mask that she used to hide her identity.

When Grima is defeated, Gerome realizes that he was wrong to assume that destiny cannot change. Afterwards, he settles in Wyvern Valley. People saw him as distant and contemplative.


Gerome thinks meddling with the past is not a great idea and that destiny cannot be changed. However, he ends up joining Chrom's army anyways, perhaps still holding onto a sliver of hope that they can avert the apocalyptic future that he lived in.

He is a serious individual and tends to speak in a formal manner, and is always training hard to become stronger. He dislikes wasting time, and feels that the others should know their priorities when it comes to winning the war. He does not like to engage in idle conversations with other members of the army, usually keeping his distance. When prodded to do so, he can give insightful suggestions and has more to say than he seems.

He refuses to accept that the present versions of his parents are the same as his own. Gerome will always refer to them by their first names, though he will occasionally call them "Mother" and "Father" in their supports and during certain event tile quotes. Like Cherche, Gerome shares a close bond with Minerva, and has inherited the ability to understand what Minerva is feeling by her shrieks. He affectionately nicknames her "Minervykins", but gets embarrassed when caught and teased about this.

His supports reveal that he is actually overly shy and at times sensitive, and thus wears a mask to conceal it. He passes this off as a method to prevent enemies from reading his thoughts. Although he tries to distance himself from others and refuses to form ties with people from the past era, he tends to get lonely as a result.

Among the Shepherds, Gerome is somehow the last to fall asleep on a regular basis.
