Artwork of Travant from Fire Emblem: Treasure.
Travant (トラバント, Torabanto, Trabant in the Japanese version), is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the King of the Kingdom of Thracia, the descendant of Dain, the father of Areone, and the foster father of Altena. Travant is directly responsible for several atrocities which took place in the Jugdral Chronology, including the Yied Massacre and the invasion of the Manster District following the Battle of River Thracia.
According to the designer's notes, although Travant appeared to be indifferent to his reputation as a villain, he was in reality an extremely passionate man, willing to go to any lengths and tarnish his own reputation for his beloved Thracia. He was not a bloodthirsty person by nature, but the harsh circumstances around him forced him to become the person that he was. If he was not born in Thracia, he would have been a true hero.
Travant is portrayed to be a ruthless and uncaring individual, a result of growing up in the harsh conditions of Southern Thracia. Although he comes off as being despicable and cunning, his lifelong dream is for his people to be able to live prosperous and peaceful lives, going so far as to commit several unforgivable crimes to achieve this end result.
Travant first appears in Chapter 3 aiding King Chagall after Chagall hired Thracian mercenaries. Thus, the Dragon Knight Papilion leads an assault on Sigurd's army. After this fails, Travant abandons Chagall to his demise.
In Chapter 5 of the game, he leads a troop of Dragon Knights wielding Horseslayers into the Yied Desert, in pursuit of Quan, Ethlyn, Altena, and their Knight Squadron, who are headed north of the desert to join up with Sigurd's army. Making use of the fact that the horse riders' movements are severely impeded by the desert terrain, he succeeds in ambushing them, slaying the entire platoon of knights and thus gaining control of the Thracian peninsula.
After the massacre, Travant picks up Altena and the Gáe Bolg before returning to his country. He then raises Altena as his surrogate daughter, with his main intention that of being able to recruit an invaluable user of the holy Gáe Bolg lance into his ranks. It is, however, insinuated that he cares for her because of his guilt from killing her mother Ethlyn. Additionally, he educated her to become to a ruler because he knows her importance to the future of the Thracian peninsula.
In Generation 2, Travant has his trusted confidant Disler ransom the son of his General Hannibal (who was starting to have second thoughts) and reveals to Altena the truth of her parentage when asked. Reflecting that he is the one that Seliph's invading Liberation Army is after and that he has "grown tired" of warfare and politics, he passes the Kingdom of Thracia and the Heaven Lance Gungnir on to Areone, telling his son that his only wish is to "see an end to the people's suffering". Knowing that he will likely be defeated, he enters his final battle with Seliph's army alongside a squad of Dragon Knights, and is slain in the process.

Instead, he will be fought in Chapter 9. As he lacks the holy Gungnir lance, he should fall fairly quickly to the hands of any magic user. The player should keep a wary eye on a powerful group of Dragon Knights accompanying Travant under his 4-star leadership, alongside Hannibal's group taking charge at the same time.

*Enemy only, joins unequipped
Travant: Heheheh, so you're Quan's son. Bloom should've taken care of you while he had the chance.
Leif: Travant, we meet at last... I... I've waited so long for this day to arrive... I've dreamed of killing you with my bare hands, and I've lived to carry it out!!
Travant: Hmph... you fool... You can't even use the Gáe Bolg, and you think you can defeat me!? Die, you little brat! I'll do to you what I did to Quan!
Travant: Finn, isn't it? It's been a while. So you're still alive...how stubborn of you.
Finn: King Travant, today I will take revenge for what you did to my lord!
Travant: Hahaha, don't make me laugh. What do you think you can do to me!? You're the one who's gonna die!!
“Thracia… My beautiful kingdom... cough...”
—Travant's death quote
Trabant is a German word that means 'comrade', which reflects the fact that despite being king, he is very close to the ordinary people of Thracia.
