“It does my heart good to see you all here safely within our castle walls. ...Would that we had more time for pleasantries, but...let us hear your news.”

Hayden (ヘイデン, Heiden) is a supporting character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is the king of Frelia and the father of Innes and Tana. Due to his friendship with King Fado, he grants Princess Eirika shelter in Frelia's capital, but later ends up lending Eirika's troupe some help in her cause to find her brother Ephraim. Sometime during the war, Hayden sent his elder son, Innes, to lead the fight against Grado. After the twins of Renais are reunited and Grado's true goal is revealed, he is last seen giving the party advice and supplies, then sends Innes and Eirika to warn Jehanna and Rausten, while Ephraim plans to march towards Grado's capital directly.

After meeting him for the first time in the game, King Hayden will provide the party with 5,000 gold, adds Vanessa, Gilliam and Moulder to the ranks, and the convoy to manage your items.

As a Ranger, he can be gained through the Creature Campaign. Coincidentally, he is the only unlockable character who does not die during the story.

The game describes him as the venerable Sage King, suggesting that he is wise and honorable, rather than referring to the class he is playable as.

Hayden's stats will not be too shabby once he starts leveling up, though his Skill and Speed appear to be a bit low for a Ranger. However, these low stats are offset by good Luck and Constitution ratings, allowing him to avoid being weighed down by heavy weapons. His stats, in the end, are nothing special; but they are not that bad either. Chances are, in the Creature Campaign, other bow and sword users are already well-trained, but after leveling, Hayden should be up to par.

The name 'Hayden' means 'hay valley', coming from the Old English words 'heg' meaning 'hay' and 'denu' meaning 'valley'.
