“Yeah, I'm just fine. I want to join Sir Seliph's liberation army, father. Thracia is not like it used to be... I want to fight for the people!”
—Coirpre, to Hannibal in Genealogy of the Holy War.

Coirpre is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War who has minor appearances in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is the son of Sylvia and the younger brother of Lene. His substitute character is Charlot.


After Coirpre was abandoned by his mother at an orphanage in Darna, he was adopted by Hannibal, who raised him in Thracia. In Chapter 9, he is taken as a hostage by Travant to force Hannibal into battle against Seliph's army. After Disler's defeat and Luthecia is seized, he joins Seliph's army, and can convince Hannibal to do the same. He also meets Lene for the first time, but neither of them ever discover that they are siblings, even after the defeat of the Grannvale Empire.

Coirpre makes a few cameos in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. In his first one, he can be rescued in by Leif during Chapter 3 after being captured in the child hunts. He later appears at the end of Chapter 7, whereby Leif receives a Warp from him if he was rescued earlier.

Coirpre, sadly enough, comes extremely under-leveled and rather late in the game. This very fact thus causes many players to bench him. His replacement Charlot comes with the Elite skill and can obtain the Berserk Staff, making him somewhat easier to use.

Nevertheless, Coirpre should not be neglected, as he will be able to fulfill the Est archetype qualities fairly well, should his mother be paired up with a competent father. He also has a high staff level upon joining no matter who his father is, meaning he can handle powerful staves right from the start.

The preferred father options are Claud (who passes major Bragi blood and the Valkyrie Staff on to him), and Alec (who gives him Nihil and Pursuit). Lewyn is also a strong choice, as Coirpre will gain excellent speed, allowing him to dodge attacks easily. He will also be able to use Forseti after promotion, significantly improving his combat abilities. To counter his problem with level the player can give Coirpre the Fortify Staff and make him use it every time someone is injured, this will give him a large amount of experience points every time and will let him gain levels often.


In Chapter 9, Coirpre can recruit Hannibal by speaking to him.

In Chapter 9, Patty may speak to Coirpre, and he will gain three points of Hp and 100 love points with Patty.

In Chapter 9, after Hannibal is recruited, Lene may speak to Coirpre, and he will gain one point of luck.

In Chapter 10, after Miletos Castle is captured, Coirpre may speak to Altena, and she will gain five points of resistance.

Love GrowthsEdit

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

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


Coirpre (Cairbre, Cairpre) was an Ulster warrior. Coirpre's name is also shared by Ogma's son, and several legendary kings.


  • If Hannibal is killed before capturing Luthecia castle, Coirpre cannot be recruited; he is stated to have disappeared upon learning of Hannibal's death.
  • Coirpre's appearance varies slightly in his artworks: in some of his artwork he has blue eyes instead of brown eyes and in other artworks his hair is light green instead of blond. 
  • Coirpre, Lester, and Lana are the only children in the second generation that do not share their hair color with their mother.
