“Fear not, my lady. This senile old bird would gladly trade his life for your protection.”
— Nealuchi to Leanne.
Nealuchi (ニアルチ, Niaruchi) is a character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. An elderly raven chamberlain and advisor to Naesala, Nealuchi fights to defeat Duke Ludveck's rebellion in Crimea. He is assigned to guard the Serenes Princess, Leanne, on behalf of his King and Prince Reyson. He is very fond of the heron siblings. He calls Naesala "nestling" (much to the latter's chagrin), as he was the raven king's caretaker when he was a child. After the game's end, when the bird tribes are united into one nation, he works to cleanse the severely-damaged reputation of the raven clan.

NPC Stats (Unused)Edit
|Part 1||Part 2||Part 3||Part 4||Endgame|
◎=Forced ○=Available □=Available for selected
Strike - A
Nealuchi is a solid unit through and through, although he has some availability issues due to the fact you can use him in part 2, but cannot use him again until part 4. Unfortunately, he will still only have an A rank Strikes when laguz will need at least a S in strike to do proper damage. However, through proper training he can become a moderate unit, maybe coming up to par with Naesala.
Nealuchi: No, this won't do at all! If we fall, who will take care of the nestling? I hate it, but I have to pull back!
Nealuchi: I've...lived a long life... I think about the decades that I watched over the nestling... It makes me feel so fulfilled. Ahh... I had so much fun...
Nealuchi: Slain by beorc warriors... How...disappointing... Lady Leanne... Watch over the nestling...
Leanne: (Stop! You can't die, Nealuchi!)
Wise Old Crow (鴉の古老)
Despite his age, Nealuchi worked hard to restore the name of the raven clan. Every year he set a new age record.
- Curiously, in his unused NPC appearance in Path of Radiance, Nelauchi has higher stats than Naesala, despite being 7 levels lower on top of not being a royal.
- Strangely, Nealuchi is completely blind in the Fog of War (as in, doesn't reveal even adjacent tiles) when transformed.
