“I have. I sent some of our men to follow the princess as she fled Serafew. They tell me Eirika and her friends will be coming this way shortly. Our ambush is ready and waiting. There's no way they can escape. Like rats in a sack, as they say. Heh heh heh...”
Novala is an enemy character that appears in Chapter 6 of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is the first Shaman boss and Riev's aide. He was sent to get Eirika's bracelet, doing so by threatening to feed Renais Civilians to the local Baels. He appears to be one of Grado's Royal Mages, due to his outfit being similar to Knoll's. He is also ambitious and dislikes Riev, claiming that he will someday replace him at the Emperor's side. Novala is quite easy to beat, as he has extremely low defense. A good light user like Artur and some high strength units should do the trick and kill Novala easily.
