“We abandoned Sir Sigurd's army right at the battle's peak. It's not something I'm proud of. But the mission awaiting us was a fate worse than death.”
—Oifey to Fee
Oifey (オイフェ, Oife, translated Oifaye and Aoife in fan translations) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He stands in as an NPC tactician in Sigurd's tale, but later becomes playable in Seliph's tale.
An experienced strategist who takes after his grandfather Lord Sesar, 14-year-old Oifey appears serving as his cousin Sigurd's adviser in Sigurd's tale, and later becomes Shanan's best friend. He also serves as Seliph's guardian on behalf of Sigurd after the fateful Battle of Belhalla, assisting Adean in raising him with the other children who managed to flee to Isaac. Additionally, Oifey trained Raquesis' son Delmud (or his substitute) in swordplay.

Unlike most other pre-promoted units from other titles in the series, Oifey starts out relatively strong, and eventually turns out to be a fairly competent unit after gaining in levels. Although there are stronger alternatives later in the game, Oifey can still hold his ground as a solid fighter nonetheless.
In Chapter 6, Oifey may speak to Seliph, but nothing will result.
In Chapter 10, after Chronos Castle is captured, Oifey may speak to Seliph, and he will gain three points of HP.
In the Final Chapter, if Oifey is in love with Fee, she may speak to him and he will gain three points of skill.
Original and replacement characters have the same love growths unless stated otherwise.
Oifey started the sub-category to the Jagen archetype. Like other Jagen characters, Oifey is a prepromoted unit. However, unlike the typical Jagen unit, Oifey's growths allow him to be usable in the later chapters of the game. Several characters in the later games of the series are known to follow after Oifey's footsteps, including Seth and Titania.
