“No... Prince Marth! You are our leader! Stand up! Sire!”
—Quote if Marth is defeated when Shiida, Jagen, and Nyna are all absent, but Malledus is present.
Malledus (モロドフ, Morodof, Morodof in the Japanese version) is a non-playable character from Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. He is Marth's elderly tactician and the first tactician to appear in the Fire Emblem series. Malledus was also the former confidant to Marth's late father, King Cornelius. During the game, he explains to Marth the events of the war where Marth's ancestor, Anri, fought Medeus. Throughout the game, Malledus remains unplayable.
