“Listen: I'm here by my king's order, and by his order alone. I'm well aware that we have diverse backgrounds and experiences. I don't care who I pair up with. You can't always have your own way. That's just how it works in Frelia.”
—Gilliam talking to Franz in a support conversation.

Gilliam (ギリアム Giliamu) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a quiet, yet dependable, armored knight of Frelia. He joins with Franz to rescue Princess Tana in Chapter 1, and later is appointed by King Hayden to be Eirika's escort along with the priest Moulder and the pegasus knight Vanessa. He is a long-time friend of Moulder and Vanessa's older sister, Syrene.

In his support conversations with Garcia, the two arm wrestle against each other to see which one of them is the strongest. Gilliam loses to Garcia in their first match, but in their second support conversation, Garcia notices that Gilliam fights with his lance in his left hand. They have a second match, this time with their left arms, and Gilliam is victorious, making them evenly matched in strength.

While Gilliam's base defense stat is a little low for a Knight, it will grow fairly quickly, as will his HP and strength. His skill growth is a bit low, but it will be high enough that he can hit most enemies consistently, with the exception of faster enemy units. However, his speed is quite low, and he will not be able to double attack most enemies. Despite this, Gilliam has a very high constitution, which allows him to wield most weapons without losing attack speed or avoid, especially as a General, where his constitution will be two points higher than if he is promoted to a Great Knight.

Gilliam has a number of support options that yield offensive support bonuses, such as Garcia and Neimi. While his Thunder Affinity limits the increased damage output he can receive from these bonuses, it does increase his critical rate, which can be stacked with Killer weapons to compensate for Gilliam's difficulties with double attacking most enemies.


  • Silent Gilliam (静かなる重壁 Shizukanaru jū kabe)

Gilliam returned to his home of Frelia, where he continued to serve the crown as a faithful knight. His imposing countenance was said to strike fear into the hearts of even the most arrogant and brash of Frelia's new recruits.

Gilliam and Syrene returned to Frelia, where they were married. All agreed they were a perfect match, and their union was blessed by the crown and the order of knights. The two continued their unwavering service together.


“I was prepared for... anything...”
—Gilliam's death quote


  • In a support conversation with Garcia, it is said that Gilliam is left-handed, although the animation for any of his potential classes, as well as his official artwork, hold their weapon in their right hand.
