“Excuse me, sir!? We were born into the knighthood and are prepared to die fighting! We'd be a disgrace to let our master perish out there all alone. We're going with you.”
Noish (ノイッシュ Noisshu, Noische in the Super Tactics Book) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Alongside Alec, he is the first Cavalier unit the player receives in the course of the game. Noish boasts decent stats across the board, excelling in Strength and Defence, while having slightly lower Speed and Luck. He joins in the first turn of Chapter One alongside Sigurd, Alec, and Arden, and is the experienced, thoughtful foil to Alec. He is known to be calm and serious with a strong sense of honor, as noted from his immediate response to Sigurd, who attempts to leave for Jungby alone.

As the Abel Archetype of Genealogy of the Holy War, Noish specializes in HP, Strength and Defense. Despite sporting Critical and Charge, Noish lacks the Pursuit skill, making his offense abilities relatively unreliable, causing some of his pairings to be fairly problematic.
Noish can be paired with characters such as Ayra, as this will result in her children benefiting greatly from his skills and decent growths.
Noish is a corruption of Naoise, a knight from Irish mythology.
“Sir Sigurd......I am so sorry...stay strong...”
—Noish in Genealogy of the Holy War
- Apart from his dialogue in the prologue and the conversations he shares with his lovers, Noish has no other unique lines in the game.
- In the Oosawa Mitsuki manga, Noish and Alec lead a squad searching for Sandima, who attacks them with the Fenrir spell. Noish is among the victims of this fearsome attack and barely survives it, which greatly disturbs Sigurd.
