“No. I can't go against my father... even with all the mayhem my brothers are causing. I'm going to Verdane to see my father. I have to get him to see the wrong in all this.”
—Jamke in Genealogy of the Holy War
Jamke (ジャムカ, Jamuka, Jamka in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the youngest prince of Verdane, the son/grandson of King Batou and the brother/nephew of Prince Kinbois and Prince Gandolf. He is the Verdane royal who is seen to actively resist the changes Sandima and the Lopto Sect are attempting to bring about in the country.
He will eventually fall in the Battle of Belhalla, alongside many of his fellow comrades.

Jamke is a powerful unit and is arguably one of the better characters of the first generation. He comes with the Pursuit, Continue and Charge skills, all of which are highly versatile and extremely useful to the wielder in question. However, as a result of his low skill growth and inability to pass down the Pursuit skill, it is thus fairly difficult to pair him up with any other female character. If he is paired up with Adean, ensure that he falls in love with her by Chapter 4, as this will unlock a secret conversation, in which he will receive a Brave Bow.
As afore-mentioned, it is possible to pair Jamke with Adean. As a result of not passing down the Pursuit skill, Lester's offense may suffer repercussions, a problem which may be solved through the passing down of the Brave Bow. Jamke may also be paired with Briggid, but this pairing will result in a relatively poor Skill growth for Faval, and also increase the difficulty level of training Patty to her promotional level. Another option is pairing him with Ayra, which will give the children their highest strength growth as well as Continue and Charge, making them powerful fighters.
In Chapter 1, Adean can recruit Jamke by speaking to him.
In Chapter 4, if Adean and Jamke are lovers, she may speak to him, resulting in him receiving a Brave Bow.
In Chapter 5, after Lubeck Castle is captured, Dew may speak to Jamke, but nothing will result of it.
In Chapter 5, after Phinora Castle is captured, if Jamke is in love with Briggid, she may speak to him, but nothing will result of it.

*Enemy only, joins unequipped
Adean: Prince Jamke! Wait!!
Jamke: Adean, is that you?
Adean: I thought you went to talk to your father! Now you're fighting? What is going on!?
Jamke: I don't know. Something was real odd about him. He just won't listen to me. Everything's been upside-down since that Sandima showed up. My father and brothers have done anything he has asked them to.
Adean: So why does that bring you into battle? Please, Jamke, don't do this! Let's return to Verdane and speak with the king once more. We're stopping this war! Sir Sigurd did not come here to invade your country. He was merely fighting to rescue me. Please, Jamke, listen to reason!
Jamke: Alright, let's give it one more try. And I'm exposing that traitor once and for all. But no one lays a finger on my father. That's my one condition.
Adean: I'll see to it no one does. Thank you, Jamke. You really are a good person.
Jamke: Adean ...

“Urgh... I`m already done for?...<Jamke's mate>”
—Jamke's death quote if he has a lover in Genealogy of the Holy War.
Jamke is a corruption of Jamukha, a Mongolian political and military leader who was a rival to Genghis Khan. Jamke's father, Batou, also derives his name from Mongolian history.
- Jamke is the only male member of Sigurd's army who is of royal heritage but not of crusader heritage.
- The Fire Emblem Treasure family tree revealed he was the son of Batou's first son, thus being the grandson of Batou. But in the game, Jamke calls Batou father, and Gandolf refers to him as his brother.
- Jamke was originally planned by Shouzou Kaga to be an Axe Fighter, much like his two brothers/uncles. However, as his character began to grow on Kaga, Jamke's class was subsequently changed to that of an archer.
