Don't worry. I'll crush these bastards.
~ Alm to Celica

My station doesn’t matter, Celica. I’m here because I was called. I have a duty to perform, and I’ll perform it. No more, and no less.
~ Alm to Celica


Alm is the main protagonist of Fire Emblem: Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Having been raised in a backwater town known as Ram Village, Alm's true identity was concealed by his adoptive grandfather, Sir Mycen. As a boy, Alm was introduced to a girl named Celica, and was quickly drawn to her. The two shared similar birthmarks on their hands, which seemed to bind them by fate.

This dropdown contains the synopsis of Alm’s story. Read at your own risk as you may be spoiled otherwise!

As Alm grew older, he was forced to say goodbye to Celica for reasons he was unaware of. Eager to leave Ram Village and set out for something bigger, Alm trained in swordplay with his grandfather every single day until he reached 17 years old. A man named Lukas arrived in the village, claiming that the Kingdom of Zofia had been overrun by the Rigel Empire. In a rash decision, Alm took his friends and joined the Deliverance army to oppose Rigel.

Alm quickly rose through the ranks of the Deliverance, eventually being made leader of the entire operation. He was able to reunite with Celica, and the two were bound together just as strongly as they had when they were kids. With the war coming to a close, Alm was able to kill Rigel's emperor, Rudolf, after a hard-fought battle. He was soon to tragically find, however, that Rudolf was his father.

Heartbroken by having been forced to kill his own father, and finding out about his royal heritage, Alm turned his sights to the gods, who had incurred the wars that had transpired. In particular, the divine dragon Duma had grown insane after maintaining his dragon form for countless years. Able to take up the divine sword, Falchion, Alm led his party into battle and was able to slay Duma for good.

With the gods, Duma and Mila, both gone, Alm turned the two countries of Rigel and Zofia, into the one-kingdom of Valentia. Here, Alm served as the first king of Valentia, Saint-King Alm I, alongside his newly-wed wife, Celica. Trouble would begin to briefly stir once more, with Alm being drawn into Thabes Labyrinth. At the end of the maze was a horrific dragon known as The Creation, later known as Grima, who attacked. Alm was able to defeat Grima, seemingly for good, although this would not be the end of the fell dragon.

Alm returned to his position as Saint-King of Valentia, where he ruled for several years as a benevolent and fair ruler. Countless years following Alm's rule, he was so beloved and revered that Valentia was later renamed to Valm in respect of him.

  • Royal Sword: A broadsword that served as a gift sent to the Kingdom of Zofia by the Rigalian Empire. A special enchantment was placed upon this blade, so that it can only be wielded by those who possess the blood of royalty. This sword ended up in the hands of Alm after the defeat of General Desaix, which he wielded up until he acquired the Falchion. For every turn that Alm wields the sword, he has a small amount of health restored by it.
  • Falchion: An extremely powerful blade created out of the divine dragon Naga's fang during an incursion she faced against her children, Duma and Mila. When Naga's fang splintered, blades were formed known as the Falchion. One of these Falchion ended up in the hands of Duma, who gifted it to a man named Emperor Rudolf. This blade can seal away the power of dragons, heal the wounds of others, and ended up possessing the spirit of Mila within it. Following Act 4, Alm came into possession of this blade, and used it to unify Valentia.

  • Mila's Turnwheel: A small circular clock-like object that contains some of the powers of the goddess, Mila. This turnwheel is extremely powerful, capable of granting Alm visions of possible futures, summoning Phantom copies of legendary warriors to fight alongside Alm, or allowing for him to reverse time in order to redo failed endeavors.
  • Memory Prism: Yellow star-shaped prisms that Alm can collect, which he places into Mila's Turnwheel. These allow for Mila's Turnwheel to recollect memories of the past, so that Alm may watch them and essentially experience them for himself.
