“You're a priestess, aye? Other of your kind have tried to cross this valley and seek Mila's blessing...but nary a one of them have completed their journey in one piece.”
—Blake talking to Celica in Echoes

Blake is an enemy boss in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He wields the dreaded Shadow Sword in both appearances.


Blake makes his appearance as the penultimate boss of War of Deliverance during Celica's route. There he threatens the priestess and her group with his band of myrmidons and a single witch (two Witches and an additional Archer on Hard Mode in Echoes) to keep them from reaching Mila's Temple. He is defeated by Celica's party before they move on to their ultimate destination though before he dies he tells them that they're too late with getting to Mila as she's already been taken by the Faithful.


Blake, like many other bosses in the game, is a cruel individual. He mocks the fates of his victims, taunting Celica and her group over the apparent fact that Mila is responsible for Zofia's suffering. As he dies, he continues to mock the heroes efforts to find Mila. He also has a minor habit of saying "aye" in the remake.

CYL Blake Portrait
Gaiden/Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


  • In Gaiden, Blake's portrait is a mirrored variant of Deen's. In the remake, Deen's appearance was completely reimagined, while Blake retained his original design with minor alterations; instead of a scarred right eye, he bears at least six scars on his face, with four of them patterned in an 'X' fashion in the corners of his face.
    • Furthering similarities between the two men are their weapons of choice in the remake: Deen's Brave Sword and Blake's Shadow Sword. Both weapons can evolve into one another at the Smithy.
  • Blake is the only enemy who hails from Rigel to appear as a boss in Celica's route.
  • Blake's voice clips in battle are shared with Wolff, Zakson, and Jerome.
  • Strangely, Blake's armor model is coded like a generic Myrmidon's, unlike most bosses who uses a unique color scheme, as it appears red when as an enemy, and if hacked to a playable unit, it takes the ally Myrmidon's color scheme.
  • Blake is among the few one-shot bosses to take part in the Choose Your Legends polls.
