“Your Majesty, how many times must I tell you? This battle is futile. Only a cease-fire with the liberation army will allow us the time to strengthen internally. Siding with the empire was an absurd idea. And the populace is now in jeopardy as a result!”
—Hannibal, in a conversation with Travant in Genealogy of the Holy War

Hannibal (ハンニバル Hannibaru) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War who has minor appearances in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a loyal general known as "The Shield of Thracia" and the adoptive father of Coirpre.


Having spent his entire adulthood on the battlefield, Hannibal is considered to be one of Thracia's top generals. Some time before the events of Thracia 776, he found Carrion and his mother, both of whom he invited to live in his mansion. When Leif flees to Thracia after escaping from Manster, Hannibal decides to provide some assistance to him. He also gives Leif access to his mansion, where Dorias, Selfina, and several of their inexperienced knights are residing.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, Hannibal speaks out against Travant's decision to engage Seliph's liberation army in battle because only a cease-fire would give Thracia the time to strengthen internally. He also opposes Travant's alliance with the Grannvale Empire. In Chapter 9, he is forced to fight against his will after Travant takes Coirpre as a hostage to ensure his loyalty. However, he enlists in Seliph's army following Travant's death and aids in fighting against the Grannvale Empire.

After the liberation war ends, Hannibal is promoted to a higher rank in the army of the New Kingdom of Thracia.

Being a General is a major down factor, as the low movement of this class essentially hampers Hannibal's mobility as a unit. Combined with the fact that he lacks the Pursuit skill and has lackluster stat growths, Hannibal may be overlooked in favor of other units. He is probably only useful for guarding one of the castles captured in Chapter 9 against Arion's final assault, but he loses this usefulness after said chapter's end.

Unlike the early characters Iuchar/Iucharba, Hannibal's powerful army will not become Ally Units and will simply disappear without explanation upon his recruitment.


In Chapter 9, if Coirpre/Charlot speaks to Hannibal, he will be recruited into the army.

In Chapter 9, after Grutia Castle is captured, position Charlot adjacent to Hannibal to trigger a conversation. This conversation will essentially allow Charlot to obtain the Berserk Staff.

In Chapter 9, Seliph may speak to Hannibal, but nothing will result of it.

In Chapter 9, if Hannibal speaks to Altena, she will gain three points of HP.


Hannibal is unable to fall in love with any of the other characters, as he is, in the words of a random villager, "married to Thracia".
