“Larcei, you're crazy! Prince Shannan is still at Yied Shrine, and Oifey hasn't made it back either. It's just us! How do you expect us to take them on!?”
—Ulster in Genealogy of the Holy War.

Ulster (スカサハ Sukasaha, Scathach; romanized as Skasaher in the Fire Emblem Museum) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is a sword fighter hailing from the Kingdom of Isaach, the son of Ayra, and the twin brother of Larcei. After Seliph's army defeats the Grannvale Empire, Ulster will return to Isaach with his lover (provided he does not inherit his father's homeland). If his cousin Shannan is dead, he will assume the Isaachian throne. His substitute character is Dalvin.

PersonalityEdit

Like most of the other characters from the second generation, Ulster has very generic lines as a result of sharing conversations with his counterpart. However, from his lovers' conversation with Lana in the final Chapter, it can be gathered that he is a kind-hearted young man, as well as adopting a well-tempered and cautious nature.

OverviewEdit

Ulster is virtually identical to his sister, Larcei, but has growth rates that more closely resemble those of his father. Thanks to his Od holy blood, his Skill and HP will always be fairly good. His Strength and Defense tend to be slightly better unless his father was a magic user, but the difference is for the most part insignificant and all of his stats tend to be good. Like Larcei, he has incredibly competent stats and amazing skills regardless of his parentage, but is held back by his lack of a mount, legendary weapon, or plausible way of attacking at a distance, making him somewhat inadequate, most obviously in comparison to Shannan. This is not to say that Ulster is a bad unit, but he certainly has his weaknesses.

Unlike Larcei, he does not promote into a Swordmaster, but instead promotes to a Hero. In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Heroes are essentially inferior to Swordmasters aside from their better Magic stat, so this essentially ensures that Larcei will outperform her brother once both are at level 20 and that she will eventually hit higher caps than he does. Also unlike Larcei, there is no guarantee that he will be able to inherit any weapons at all.

Ultimately, despite his slight disadvantages against Larcei, Ulster fulfills a virtually identical function. If the player is playing at anything less than a strenuous pace, Ulster is an excellent way to dispose of enemies without resorting to legendary weapons.

ConversationsEdit

In Chapter 6, Ulster may speak to Larcei, and she will gain one point of luck.

In the Final Chapter, if Ulster is in love with Lana, she may speak to him, and he will gain three points of resistance.

Love GrowthsEdit

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

EtymologyEdit

Skasaher is a corruption of Scáthach, a figure in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. Scáthach was known for training the hero Cú Chulainn, and her name means "shadowy".

Ulster is one of the four provinces of Ireland; it includes the area currently known as Northern Ireland. It also lends its name to the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology, in which Scáthach features.
