“Certainly not. Turn your blade away from me if you wish to live. My Shooting Star Sword is not for slaying little girls like you.”
—Shanam talking to Mareeta in Chapter 15
Shanam (シャナム Shanamu) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is the mercenary of Silesse. He parades around impersonating Shanan. He accidentally "teaches" Mareeta the Shooting Star Sword skill, despite his "advice" was generic and made up on the spot, and he was surprised when she learned the skill. He is friends with Homer and can be recruited by him, although Homer notes he sounds nothing like Shanan.

Shanam has rather low base stats and growth rates, and his growths are not that great either, except for his strength, Speed, and HP. However, he does come with the Bargain skill, which allows him to buy any item at half price. Basically, he is just here to get you a discount on items.
Shanam - The Phony Prince (ホラふき剣 Hora fuki kenshi)
Instead of working for the New Kingdom of Thracia, Shanam returned to his hometown in Isaac. He then quit being a mercenary and lived a normal life.
“"Hmph... That was too easy."”
—-Shanam's escape quote
A fake Shanan also appears in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War during Chapter 9. If Femina or Janne enters the village, he attempts to flirt with her, but she sees through his impersonation, causing him to give her his Dracoshield, which he was trying to pass off as the Balmung. It is unknown whether or not Shanam was intended to be this person.
