“Either obey, or accept the consequences. Your little sister, Maria, is still our ward, is she not? What a shame it would be, if we decided we could no longer care for her...”
—Harmein, threatening Minerva.
Harmein (ハーマイン Hāmain, Harmein In the Japanese version) is the boss of Chapter 7 in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He is a general that is put in charge of Minerva and her Whitewings to prevent Marth's army from progressing any further towards Archanea's palace. He insists that his tactics are superior to Minerva's (which Minerva calls 'cat and mouse') and easily resorts to threatening her with the well being of her little sister Maria, who is being held hostage to keep Minerva in line. Minerva and her Whitewings refuse to fight, however, and leave Harmein to be defeated by Marth's army.
* Dropped upon defeat

- A portrait identical to Harmein was used along with variations of Jiol and Mannu's portraits to depict every minor boss including pirates in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. Ironically the only character who would retain this appearance, Harmein, did not use this portrait in FE1, instead being an alteration of Jiol's.
- Even in Monshō no Nazo the "Harmein" portrait is reused again, two bosses in Book 1 using it, and a weak shooter boss is the last character to have it.
