“Alm. Your shock is understandable... It's true that you are Emperor Rudolf's only son. And now you have also become the only remaining heir of the royal family of Rigel.”
—Mycen explaining to Alm about Rudolf in Gaiden.
Mycen (マイセン Maisen, Maisen in the Japanese version and Misen in some of the fan translations) is from Fire Emblem Gaiden.
He is Alm and Celica's adoptive grandfather and a reputable former soldier. Originally a high ranking Zofian general, Mycen discovered that Dozah was killing off the heirs to the throne as they were born. He was framed for the crime and banished, but not before he saved Princess Anteze from Dozah. Around this time, he was approached by King Rudolf of Rigel, who entrusted his son Alpine to him, and explaining that the over-involvement of the gods Mila and Duma were leading the people of Valentia to ruin, and that he intended to become a "destroyer" in order to provoke the rise of Valentia's true heroes, even if it meant having to die at the hands of his own son. Upon realizing that Rudolf was willingly consigning himself to hell for this greater good, Mycen could not refuse him.
Mycen dubbed his adopted children "Alm" and "Celica" and initially raised them both in Ram Village, but later sent Celica away to keep her safe from Dozah. He spent the later days teaching Alm his old techniques in the peace of their village. Originally, the rebellion movement wanted Mycen to join them but he refused, claiming he wants no more part in war. Alm and his friends join in Mycen's place. Mycen then meets up with Alm at Zofia Castle, encouraging him to follow the path he believes in and hints that Celica would soon be joining them in the castle, saying that both of them will free the land from its fate. When she arrives, he encourages her to speak to Alm, but leaves afterwords.
He later appears at Rigel Castle after the death of Rudolf, and explains Rudolf's motives for the war. He then joins Alm's army and encourages him to hurry to Doma's Alter in order to save Celica and end the war. After the war he became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Valentia and served as Alm's right hand man, putting all his effort into reconstructing the land.
In Chapter 4, talk to him at Rigel Castle (needed to progress).
