“I, Díthorba, am one of the four Angelic Knights of Silesse. It's such a shame, but you're going to die!”
—Díthorba's battle quote

Díthorba is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is one of the Four Angelic Knights of Silesse.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Despite being a royal knight of Silesse, Díthorba was one of several knights to betray the queen Rahna. Working under Duke Maios of Thove, Díthorba took part in the coup against the queen and her returning son, Prince Lewyn.

Díthorba commanded the pegasus troop of Maios during the civil war in Silesse in Chapter 4, leading it into battle against Sigurd's army with support from Cuvuli's Wind Mages. She eventually falls in battle, ultimately failing in her mission.

In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, Díthorba is stated to be the mother of Misha, a playable character.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Díthorba's dialogue within the game indicates her stake in the rebellion was motivated by power and status. When talking with Maios, Díthorba remarked that Sigurd will fetch a fine bounty from Grannvale. Díthorba viewed Erinys as her inferior, taunting her as weak and said that she would take Eriny's severed head as a trophy.

Despite her treacherous actions, Misha did have some love for Díthorba as a maternal figure, indicating a softer side for family. She was well thought among Maios troops for her skill.

Compared to Pamela, Díthorba has less HP and doesn't have the advantages given by the Shield Ring, but can still manage to be fairly troublesome if she manages to attack Sigurd's troops. This is especially so if said army is bogged down in a forest, as Díthorba and her Falcon Knight squadron are all fliers.

Vs Erinys

  • Díthorba: Heheheh, Erinys... This is a fine meeting... I'll present your head to Duke Maios as a souvenir!
  • Erinys: No way, Díthorba! I'm not the Erinys you once knew. I won't lose!
  • Díthorba: Heh. Erinys, you crybaby. You're all talk. Don't make me laugh!!

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Dithorba was a king from Irish and Celtic mythology. According to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, Áed Rúad, son of Badarn, Díthorba, son of Deman, and Cimbaeth, son of Fintan, three grandsons of Airgetmar, were High Kings of Ireland who ruled in rotation, seven years at a time. They each ruled for three seven-year stints. Áed died at the end of his third stint, by drowning in a waterfall which was named Eas Ruaid, "the red's waterfall" (Assaroe Falls, Ballyshannon, County Donegal), after him; previously the waterfall had been called Ess Duinn, the "Rapid of Donn", and his death is described as a miracle of sea and mighty wind. Díthorba and Cimbáeth then took their turn, after which Áed's daughter, Macha Mong Ruad, demanded to rule in her father's place. Díthorba and Cimbáeth refused, and battle ensued. Díthorba was killed. Macha forced Díthorba's sons to build her a palace at Emain Macha. She married Cimbáeth and the pair ruled for a further seven years, at the end of which Cimbáeth died of plague, and Macha became the only queen in the List of High Kings of Ireland.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like Pamela, all artwork of Díthorba depicts her wearing white, which is contrary to her portrait wearing a black uniform.
