“Sacrilege? I am Glass! The gods fear my name! My swordplay is peerless! And if I want this sword, this sword I shall have! Now, get out of my way!”
Glass is a Sacaen swordsman and the boss of Chapter 2 in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken. He only makes an appearance in the chapter because he wants to steal Sacae's most famous sword, the Mani Katti. Upon threatening the priest charged with protecting the Mani Katti, the priest puts a spell on it to make sure Glass cannot remove it. Glass is a level 3 Mercenary. Being a mercenary, Glass has fairly balanced stats. He can be defeated most easily using Kent or Sain. Glass is the first mercenary boss fought, the next being Beyard, in Chapter 7x.
He is the first enemy unit of Lyn's route to drop an item, a Vulnerary, when defeated.
Like many other bosses, he shares a character portrait - in this case, with Igor.

* Drops when defeated
Glass's stats are slightly atypical for a mercenary. While his Strength and HP are appropriate for his level, his Skill, Speed, and Defense are all impossibly low for his class. Furthermore, perhaps as a result of divine retribution over his decision to sack a temple, Glass has an abysmal 0 luck.
The throne on which Glass stands largely makes up for his poor evasion, but he is still no match for even one of the units he faces. So long as the player doesn't decide to attack him with injured characters, Glass should go down with as little effort as his name might suggest.
As a precaution, players should ensure that the unit who kills Glass has 4 or less items in his or her inventory, as they will be forced to discard one upon killing him otherwise. Also, the player should ensure that Lyn has 4 or less items before seizing the throne on which Glass sits, as the Mani Katti will be thrust into her inventory.
