“Eh, where's everyone going? What? We're finally marching on Zofia Castle? Then I'm going too. Let's go for it -- for the liberation of Zofia!”
—Python in Gaiden

Python (パイソン, Paison in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem Gaiden. He is 25 years old. His Japanese voice is provided by Shinji Kawada.


Python was born in a local town and he was encouraged by a childhood friend to join the army. As a member of the Deliverance he guards the Deliverance camp headquarters, and works directly under Clive. After the war, he became the leader of a vigilante group and protected villages from bandits.


Python tends to view the world from a cynical angle, but he can be surprisingly serious and performs his duties with diligence.

In GameEdit

Fire Emblem GaidenEdit


The player first meets Python at the entrance of the Deliverance Hideout, but must fight your way though the army of the undead within the building to talk with Clive and Forsyth first. On your way out, if you talk to Python again, he will join you.

Python is a glass cannon. He is the only Archer you can recruit in Alm's route unless you promote one of the Villagers to Archer. Archers in Gaiden are great units since they can not only shoot 3 spaces away (or 5 with a weapon equipped), but they can counterattack units next to them or at their max distance. The good news is that Python has high Strength and will be able to dish out huge physical damage from far away. The bad news is that his Speed starts out very low and his Speed growth is average, which means it is doubtful that he will be Double Attacking often which, hurts his offensive capability. If Python were just a little faster, he would be one of the most dangerous units. As it is, he still makes up a solid part of the team and will round out your team well as long as you keep him well protected.

The only other non-Villager Archer in the game, Leon, is not as good as Python. Leon has significantly lower Strength and even worse Speed. He has better Defense and HP, but this is not very useful as Archer is mostly a ranged offensive class that should not be getting physically hit or counterattacked that often.

Fire Emblem GaidenEdit

"In order to protect villages from plundering bandits, he put all his effort into serving as the captain of a vigilante group."

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of ValentiaEdit

  • (If Forsyth lives)

"Instead of becoming a knight of Valentia, he became the head of a militia in order to protect towns and villages from bandits and thieves. He lived a carefree life in the countryside. It is said that sometimes an old friend would come to drink the night away with him."

  • (If Forsyth dies)'

"Python became a knight of Valentia. Perhaps because of Forsyth's dying wish, Python was like a new man: he was energetic in action. However, after a few years he was injured in a war meant to suppress rebellion, and died young."
