“Send word to all the troops: we're launching an all-out assault on Castle Leonster! There will be no retreat! Fight with all your soul if you want to live!”

Baráth is a boss character encountered in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. A general of Friege, he is seen leading an army to retake Leonster from Leif's forces in Chapter 20. He is among Bloom's most capable officers, and is genuinely concerned about the fate of the empire. Out of desperation, Baráth has his otherwise well-managed force issue a reckless charge towards Leif's unit, a mistake that ultimately costs him his life.

Despite being the boss of a Defense map, Baráth must be defeated (and Turn 15 must be reached) before the chapter ends.

Oddly enough, Baráth is statistically identical to Wolf, the boss fought in the preceding chapter, right down to his Level, Leadership stars and Weapon Ranks. However, he does have radically different weapons. His Master Axe, running off of a maxed 20 Strength, is as deadly as they come, and his Thrud Scroll lends him immunity to Critical hits, at least temporarily. His starting position is much weaker than that of Wolf at first, but Baráth will benefit from all manner of same-turn reinforcements, including numerous Ballistae, multiple siege Mages with Meteor, and over 30 Armors.

Due to Baráth being extremely strong, it's recommended that one unit uses the Sleep Staff on him to prevent him from counterattacking. Perne with a Body Ring can steal his Thrud Scroll, making him easier to kill. Once the player has done these two things, Baráth is relatively easy to kill with either a strong Magic user or an Armorslayer user.

After Turn 15, in a sure sign of desperation, Baráth will begin to move. At this point, the player can retreat from any remaining siege units and utilize chokepoint tactics to whittle away the remnants of Baráth's forces. It would be advisable to steal the Thrud Scroll from him if at all possible, but with only a handful of chapters remaining (and most likely a sizable collection of Crusader Scrolls already in the player's inventory) failing to do so would not be a significant loss.


“You nuisances have cost me my rank!”

“Ugh… So this is… where…”

  • Baráth has an unused captured quote. In the final game, Baráth's high build makes him uncapturable.
  • In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Chapter 7 features the same raid featured in Chapter 20 of Thracia 776. The force is indeed commanded by an unnamed axe-wielding General. Baráth could potentially be based off of this character, though he is a Baron rather than a General and the force he commands in Thracia 776 is far more competent than the one seen in Genealogy.
