—Battle Quote with Seliph
Danann is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the son of Lombard, the half-brother of Lex, the father of Brian, Iuchar, and Iucharba, and the King of Isaach for the period of time from the Battle of Belhalla to Seliph's uprising in Isaach.
Danann is mentioned by Lombard in Chapter 5, who refers to him as being useless, as he is unable to quash a small uprising in Isaach. Danann eventually ascends the throne, whereupon he rules with an oppressive hand, going so far as to lower the social class of the Issacian people to that of slaves. When Seliph initiates the liberation of Isaach in Chapter 6, Danann attempts to stop him. Unfortunately for Danann, the mighty Helswath is in Brian's capable hands at the time. Without his mighty axe to support him, Danann perishes at the hands of Seliph's army.

Although he possesses high physical offenses and bulk, he has poor attack speed, avoid and resistance. A Seliph with Sigurd's silver sword and rings or a magic user can easily roll over him and end the chapter.
(Facing Seliph in battle)
Danann: Y, you're the son of that Sigurd! C, crap! My father's grudge... I will have his revenge!
Seliph: King Danann... Under your rule, many people have suffered and died. Now you must face the consequences.
(Facing Iuchar in battle)
Danann: I, Iuchar... That woman has turned you against me!?
Iuchar: Sigh... I pledged my life for her love. Forgive me, father...
Danann: Y, you fool...
(Facing Iucharba in battle)
Danann: Iucharba, you...! How dare you rise up against your father!!
Iucharba: Sorry... I don't want anything more to do with your evil deeds. It's nothing personal.
Danann: D, damn it...! Iucharba!
