Xaizor (サイゾー Saizō) is an enemy boss character from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. A Rigelian soldier, he hinders Alm's progress while in the Rigelian Forest. In the original Gaiden, Xaizor has no dialogue or even a portrait.
Xaizor appears as the second boss of Chapter 4: The Land of Sorrow during Alm's route, where he impedes the hero's progress with a small group of witches and myrmidons. He and his soldiers are ultimately defeated and Alm's group presses on further into Rigel.
Xaizor has no dialogue in his original appearance and still does not speak much in the remake. With the small amount of dialogue he gives, he is very brief like a few other bosses, but unlike others he shows no malice towards Alm's party outside of having to kill them on his master's orders.
“My name is Xaizor, and I'm afraid your path ends here. While I bear you no grudge, my master's orders are absolute.”
—Xaizor's pre-battle quote. “I can serve you...no longer...Forgive me...Emperor...Rudolf...”
—Xaizor's defeat quote.
- Xaizor's attire differs between his official artwork and his in-game battle model in Echoes: his in-game battle model is the same one that Kliff uses as a Dread Fighter minus the halo structure on the back.
- Xaizor in Echoes bears a passing physical resemblance to Saizo. Incidentally, both men's original Japanese names are pronounced the same and are nearly identical in spelling (there is one different character at the end of each name). Xaizor's redesign may have been derived from Saizo's design.
- Additionally, he mentions his liege when he's defeated, like Saizo.
