“The power of Daein's king has filled me with despair... It is more than I'd imagined... I beg your leave... I must...tell the king...”
—Giffca's retreat quote from Path of Radiance

Giffca (ジフカ Jifuka) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is a very close friend of the Gallian King Caineghis; he is so often in the king's company that he is dubbed the king's shadow. Very taciturn, he is one of the three powerful laguz you have to choose from in the Path of Radiance endgame (due to other affairs occupying the true Caineghis' time, Giffca was sent in his place as the beast king's shadow). After the last battle, as in their youth, Giffca continues to stay at his king's side as his loyal shadow. In Radiant Dawn, despite not actually being a Royal Laguz, he has stats equivalent to the Laguz Kings. Also, he gets a Laguz Gem to account for the fact that he does not have the capability to shift forms at will and has initial stats only slightly below Caineghis. Because of his Laguz Gem, he is somewhat like a clone of Caineghis without Formshift.

OverallEdit

Between the three Laguz that can be selected from in the final chapter of Path of Radiance, Giffca has the highest strength, and can inflict noticeably greater damage against enemy Dragon laguz and Ashnard when compared to Tibarn and Naesala. This distinguishes him from them, as he can deal greater damage to these opponents, which tend to be difficult to inflict damage against. In addition, Giffca does not suffer from low stats elsewhere, making his abilities as a raw damage dealer rather consistent.

EpilogueEdit

  • Lion King's Shadow (獅子王の隻影 Shishiō no sekiei)

Since their youth, Giffca had been ever at Caineghis's side as his loyal shadow. He died proud of how he spent his life.

TriviaEdit

  • Oddly, in the American and PAL versions of Radiant Dawn, Giffca's transformed class was named "Giffca" instead of the normal "Lion". The class description is unique to him as well. His non-transformed class is still "Lion," as it should be.
