“I am strong. I am wise. I am lovely. And most importantly, I am right! ...Me! No one else! ”
—Narcian

Narcian (ナーシェン, Nashen, Nacien in the Japanese version and translated Narshen in the fan translation) is a boss character in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. He is one of the Three Dragon Generals of Bern, and an extremely ambitious officer. He was entrusted with the invasion of Lycia, and his lieutenant is Flaer. He is responsible for many actions during Roy's journey through Lycia and the Western Isles. He is a very narcissistic person, has a tendency to bear grudges, and will not hesitate to let his underlings die for him so that he can live, for example, his lieutenant Flaer was killed while holding Cecilia captive. Eventually, due to his constant failings, Zephiel demotes him, replacing him with Galle. He is given one last chance to redeem himself in the defense of Etruria's palace, but he fails and is killed during the battle.

In the Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi manga, he is killed by his subordinate Zeed as vengeance for Jemmie's death.

Boss OverviewEdit

Narcian is not an easy boss, as he has somewhat decent speed for a Wyvern Lord and he has a Runesword and the Delphi Shield, which can be problematic in defeating him. It is nearly imperative to use somebody who is resistant against the Runesword so it doesn't help him a lot and/or can evade the Runesword easily. The easiest way to defeat him is to steal his shield and gem, and proceed to unleash a barrage of arrows from any snipers/nomad troopers available. This will cause him to fall in one turn most likely, as the recovery effects of his sword won't be able to keep up with the critical damage he receives from bows. Another method is to switch to mages, especially if they wield light or dark magic to get the magic advantage; just be sure he or she can deal more damage then Narcian gets back. However, if his Delphi Shield was stolen, the Aircalibur tome is an ideal weapon to use on him, and Lilina/Lugh can kill him in one or two rounds with it.

Overall (Playable)Edit

Narcian's stats are rather average, except for that low speed. Galle can be more consistent in the Trial Maps if you did not train Milady or Zeiss, as Galle has higher stats than Narcian in everything except speed and luck.

EtymologyEdit

Narcian seems to be a corruption of Narcissistic, or Narcissism. Which fits him well, as the word comes from a Greek god, Narcissus, who fell in love with a reflection of himself.
