“Ilyana: Thank you, Mordecai... I don't know what to say... You're like an angel.
Mordecai: Me? No...stop. You embarrass me.
—Mordecai and Ilyana at B support in Path of Radiance

Mordecai (モゥディ Mudi, Mordy in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, and is a warrior of Gallia. Alongside Lethe, he is stationed in Crimea to offer support and to foster relations between the two nations.

In Path of Radiance, it is interesting to note that Mordecai is rather agile even in his human form, as he is able to perform back flips whenever he dodges attacks.

PersonalityEdit

Mordecai is portrayed as one of the more peace-loving and innocent beast laguz characters, and appears to bear no ill will towards the Beorc race. This may be observed through his interactions with Ilyana, where he treats her with kindness and offers her money to purchase food for herself. Mordecai's tender heart has lead him to close his eyes before attacking his enemies, as he has no wish to see them getting torn into shreds.

As can be observed through a base conversation between several Crimean villagers, Mordecai loves children tremendously, where he not just he helped rebuild their village and how the children liked to play with him. His gentle nature shows when he meets Mist, as he admits being afraid that he will scare her with his appearance. He even showed generosity toward Beorc like Ilyana to fill her constant desire for food.

Although Mordecai is Lethe's subordinate, he often reprimands her for her violent and hostile behavior towards the beorc in Path of Radiance. In spite of this, however, he has been shown to be unable to back his rage when he is once referred to as a sub-human by Soren. Apart from this one incident, Mordecai has never displayed any other fits of blind rage, garnering the adoration of several beorc individuals with his tranquil nature.

OverallEdit

Mordecai becomes a lot like a physical tank, having high HP, strength, and defense. Thus, he can literally take a hit and fire back. However, Mordecai is limited by a transformation gauge, which will force him to revert to regular form after at most 5 turns. In addition, Mordecai is plagued with low resistance, which leaves him susceptible to magic attacks, especially Fire magic. As a result of these shortcomings, Mordecai is not as consistent as one might hope him to be. Despite these flaws, Mordecai is still a very powerful unit that cannot be ignored.

Recruit Conversation with ZiharkEdit

Mordecai: You, I know...
Zihark: Mordecai... I never expected us to meet like this, on opposite sides...
Mordecai: Ah! Zee...eehark! Hm... No, that not it. Sorry. Mordecai says your name not right. Not right yet.
Zihark: But...
Mordecai: Zeehork? Zeehar-ack? Zi...hark? Ahh! That is good! Zi-hark!
Zihark: Mordecai... Don't you understand? We're now--
Mordecai: I know. Mordecai is your friend. Allies we are. It does not matter who we fight for.
Zihark: But--
Mordecai: You have no fang or tail, but you are a beast brother, Zee-hark! Hmm... No. Mordecai forgets again. Sorry.
Zihark: Hey, don't worry about it. I've got it! I'll go with you. That way, you'll get my name right in no time.
Mordecai: Ah! Good idea! Mordecai likes this idea.

Mordecai: Graarr! What's wrong? My body. It grows...heavy.
Ike: Mordecai! No matter how strong you are, you can't take much more! We'll take over now! You must withdraw!
Mordecai: Grawr... I understand. I will do as you ask.
—Mordecai's defeat quote in Radiant Dawn

“Forgive, please... Mordecai can fight no longer... Mordecai must return home...to...Gallia...”

After returning to the forest, Mordecai avoided battle and lived all his days in peaceful harmony with the trees.

EtymologyEdit

Mordecai is a Persian name that means "servant of Marduk". Marduk is the Persian god who killed the dragon Tiamat and created the world out of her body. In the Old Testament, the book of Esther, Mordecai was one of the Jews living in Persia during one of the periods of Israel's captivity with his cousin Esther, with whom the Persian King Xerxes falls in love with. Esther and Mordecai succeeded in stopping the King's advisor Haman from killing all the Jews living in Persia.

Mordecai's relationship with Lethe in Fire Emblem is most probably a re-enactment of Mordecai and Esther's relationship in Persian mythology.
