“Well, I'm just some guy Mister Valbar hired, so I'm fine with joining y'all. Except for the Draco Zombie. If we're going up against that, count me out. Unless you use Angel magic, there's no way you can defeat that thing.”
—Kamui's recruitment conversation in Pirate's Fortress

Kamui (カムイ) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is 28 years old.

He is voiced by Shuhei Matsuda in the Japanese version.


A Mercenary from a distant nation hired by Valbar, Kamui used to live with his family and worked with grazing animals. However, they got into a scuffle with another tribe and lost, which led them to settle in a town.

After Dahha is defeated, he joins Celica's party. After the war, he joins Jesse in building their own country in the lands that once belonged to Grieth. If Jessie is dead, he founds the country in his place.


He has a carefree and easy-going personality and is a freedom-loving drifter who hates being tied down.


Fire Emblem Gaiden Edit


In Chapter 2, if he survived the previous battle, talk to him at the Pirate's Fortress.

In Celica's route, she gains access to three Mercenary units: Kamui, Saber, and Jesse. When considering the three Mercenary units that Celica can obtain, they can generally be simplified into 3 types. Kamui is the all-rounder Mercenary with even stats, Saber is the durable, defensive Mercenary, and Jesse is the late recruit with the best base stats and growths making him the most dangerous. An optional, Pre-Promoted Sword Fighter, Deen, is also available to recruit. Deen is best described as fragile and aggressive.

Kamui is one of the better units in Celica's route. He has average or above average growth in every stat. He has good starting stats other than his Luck and Resistance. His Resistance will be fixed in later promotions as the Dread Fighter class gets some of the highest Resistance in the game. He will also get increased Move as he promotes to Sword Fighter, and then Dread Fighter. He has excellent Speed growth and will wind up as one of your fastest units, Double Attacking virtually every enemy. His only real downside is that his Strength is somewhat low, as is common of his class. This can easily be offset with a good Weapon, though. He's useful from the time you get him all the way until the end of the game.

Death Quote Edit

“Gah. Geez, I'm such an idiot~”
—Kamui's Death Quote in Gaiden

“Ah, does it end here? That's matter the place we all just return to the earth...”
—Kamui's death quote in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


Gaiden Edit

  • (If Jesse is alive)

Together with Jesse's group he works hard towards patching up the new country.

  • (If Jesse is dead)

In the former territory of Grieth, he built a new country. Afterwards, he became known as the Desert Mercenary.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Edit

  • (If Jesse is alive)

"Kamui helped establish Jesse's mercenary kingdom and for a short while he stayed there. Perhaps his wanderer's blood began to ache, but one day he suddenly disappeared. From then on his whereabouts were completely unknown."

  • (If Jesse is dead)

"Kamui built a new kingdom in the formerly occupied territory of Grieth using mercenaries. The new kingdom and unified Valentia had a favorable relationship such that the mercenary kingdom would come running to help whenever the Valentian King had an emergency. After a while, Kamui became known as the Desert Mercenary King based on his achievements."


Kamui, or kamuy, is the word for a spiritual or divine being in Ainu mythology and is similar in concept to the Japanese Kami, or god.


  • Kamui showed up in an April Fools gag in the official site which claimed a new Fire Emblem game in the style of the 8bit originals would be made. This fake game would star Leon, Valbar, and Kamui in a setting based on medieval Japan.
