“Arrgh... urr... urg... In the name... of the empire... Cleanse... my shame...”
—Kotaff's Death quote
Kotaff is a General of Daein, and like most Daein generals, is racist towards Laguz, calling them "sub-humans". He is a Halberdier and the boss of Chapter 9 in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. He takes great pride in Daein, hoping to "erase [the] shame" of Daein's early defeats against the Greil Mercenaries.

*Dropped upon defeat
Kotaff: Death to the rogues who defy Daein! Defend our brethren! Erase their shame!
- Vs Ike
Kotaff: So, you are the new commander... Tell me, boy, what cowardly tactics did you employ to fell our brothers? You must have deceived them. There's no way rabble like you could defeat Daein troops in a fair fight.
Ike: From the very beginning, every last one of you underestimated us. Will you never learn? Your refusal to recognize our strength will forever keep victory at arm's length.
Kotaff: Silence! Silence, you idiot child!
Ike: You're right. No more talk.
- Vs. Lethe
Kotaff: Bah! So the sub-humans have come crawling out of their dens, eh?
Lethe: Beorc maggot! Those who call us by that hateful name shall earn a swift and merciless death!
- Vs. Mordecai
Kotaff: At last we meet, sub-human! I will exterminate you with my own two hands! My HUMAN hands!
Mordecai: Sub... Sub-human? Grrraaaaaa!
