“The castle's in your hands, Ayra. You best not let me down while I'm gone, you follow? You pull any stunts and that little brat's history!”
—Cimbaeth using Shannan as a hostage
Cimbaeth (キンボイス Kinboisu, Kinbois in the Japanese version) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the eldest of the three princes of Verdane and the ruler of Genoa Castle. Much like his father and his brother, Munnir, Cimbaeth is tricked by Sandima into attacking Grannvale while Duke Byron of Chalphy is away from the region.
When Sigurd's army draws close to Genoa Castle, Cimbaeth leaves the swordswoman Ayra in charge of defending said castle, holding her half-nephew, Shannan, hostage to ensure that she does not betray him. He then marches forth to face Sigurd, and falls to them eventually.
