“I was once a slave. The nobleman who was my master made me sharpen his blades for him. I was quite adept at it. He would bring them to me unannounced. If I did not have the proper materials to sharpen his swords, he would beat me. I still do not feel comfortable unless I have these materials near me.”
—Muarim talking to Zihark in a support conversation
Muarim (ムワリム Muwarimu, Mwarim in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is a Tiger Laguz, and is a former slave of the Beorc race. Muarim acts as a father-figure and best friend to Tormod, and fight the Begnion Occupational Army to liberate enslaved laguz.
Prior to the occurrence of Chapter 15, Begnion labels Muarim and Tormod as errant bandits, whereupon Ike's forces are sent to eliminate them. When Ike's forces later encounter the pair in the Grann Desert, Muarim jumps into action to protect both Tormod and his stronghold. It is later revealed that Sanaki is actually trying to expose the senators' crimes of enslaving laguz, and sends Ike's forces to the desert in order to make contact with the Laguz Emancipation Army, spearheaded by Muarim and Tormod.
Muarim will then remain with Ike's forces until the game reaches its conclusion.
Returning with Tormod and Vika, Muarim assists Micaiah and Sothe in freeing imprisoned Daein soldiers in Part 1 Chapter 7, ultimately playing major roles in liberating Daein from Begnion's rule. During the course of these events, Izuka uses him as an experiment subject for turning laguz into Feral Ones. Just as Muarim is about to reach breaking point of his sanity, Rafiel sings the Galdr of Rebirth to calm his enraged soul. This ultimately prompts him to promptly return to Gallia upon Part 1's conclusion.
Muarim later returns in Part 4 with Tormod and Vika, encountering and battling Oliver's forces alongside Ike's army. He may be brought into the Tower of Guidance, where he will work to defeat Ashera and free the continent of Tellius from her cold judgment.
Muarim is an honorable individual, as he constantly seeks to protect other people around him, one of whom is Tormod. He tends to be quick in accepting punishment when he feels he has spoken or acted out of turn, apologizing profusely for his mistakes. This could be an after-effect of his days in slavery.
