“Where the hell do you get off!? Okay, I'll fight you... only to shut you up! You ready?”
—Tristan to Dalvin

Tristan (トリスタン Torisutan) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the substitute character of Diarmuid if Lachesis was not paired up. He is the brother of Jeanne.

He also shares a conversation with Dalvin in Chapter 7, after Melgen is captured.


Tristan's father was Eve, one of the Agustrian knights assigned to protect Lachesis. Both he and Jeanne were eventually taken in by Sigurd's army. However, the two of them were separated some time later. Tristan was raised in Isaach along with Seliph and the younger initial members of the Liberation Army, while Jeanne was adopted by a traveling merchant, who took her to Leonster. After Jeanne's adoptive father was murdered by the Grannvale Empire, she was raised in hiding by Finn alongside Leif. Tristan and Jeanne are finally reunited in Chapter 7 and they vow never to be separated again.

In short, Tristan is unable to match up with Diarmuid as his substitute. As a result of possessing minor Hezul holy blood, Diarmuid will thus always have higher strength than Tristan. This is made worse by the fact that Tristan possesses neither the Pursuit nor the Charm skills. However, he still can be a nice unit, with decent base stats and large promotion gains.


In Chapter 7, if Oifey speaks to Tristan, Tristan will gain one point of strength, one point of skill, and one point of defense.

In Chapter 7, after Melgan is captured, if Tristan is positioned adjacent to Dalvin and they are both below Level 10, he will gain two points of strength, one point of speed, and one point of defense, while Dalvin will gain two points of strength, one point of skill, and one point of defense.

In Chapter 7, if Tristan speaks to Jeanne, she will gain one point of luck.

Love GrowthsEdit

Original and replacement characters have the same love growths, unless stated otherwise.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

Tristan is illustrated in the trading card game with the following cards:


Tristan was one of the Knights of the Round Table in Arthurian mythology.


  • In chapter 3, there is a girl in a village to the east who proudly states that her boyfriend is one of the cross knights under Eldigan. However, if you visit this village after capturing Silvail, she'll inform you that her boyfriend died in the war against Grannvale. It's likely that Tristan and Jeanne are the children of these two unnamed individuals.
