“Lester, if I were you I'd be a bit more concerned about your sister. Lana might be out here fighting for all you know.”
—Diarmuid in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Diarmuid is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is the son of Lachesis and the older brother of Nanna, and is possibly the half-brother of Fergus. In Thracia 776, Diarmuid's ability to wield the Beo Sword hints that his canonical father is Beowolf.

Diarmuid's substitute character is Tristan in Genealogy of the Holy War.

ProfileEdit

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy WarEdit

Diarmuid first appears in Chapter 6, where he, Oifey, and Lester emerge from the west of Tirnanog and rush to Seliph's aid when the hideout of the rebels is discovered by the surrounding subjugation forces.

After Seliph's army successfully fights through the enemy forces in the Yied Desert in Chapter 7, it manages to reach Leonster to provide aid to Leif, Finn, and Nanna, who are surrounded by hostile forces commanded by Bloom. It is at this point that Diamuid is reunited with Nanna. The conversation they share reveal that their mother Lachesis has gone missing while attempting to cross the Yied Desert to get to her son.

Diarmuid then goes on to continue aiding Seliph in prevailing over the Grannvale Empire.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776Edit

Diarmuid first appears in Chapter 21, where he joins Leif's liberation army after Seliph succeeds in capturing Alster from Bloom's forces. His first mission with Leif's army is to charge Fort Danzhi.

Diarmuid then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He accompanies his cousin Ares to Agustria thereafter, where they work together to unite the country and bring it to prosperity.

PersonalityEdit

Diarmuid's characterisation is limited in both games he appears in, but from what little screen-time he is given, it can be discerned that he is a man with a strong sense of justice and honour, fighting for what he believes is right and just.

OverallEdit

Coming with the Charm skill, Diarmuid will always be able to support your other units, but if his father does not pass down the Pursuit skill, he will not be an ideal fighter.

Beowolf, Azelle, and Finn are considered to be the best fathers for Diarmuid, but he will do just fine as long as he inherits the Pursuit skill. Despite the fact that Azelle is of the Mage class, Diarmuid's Strength will not suffer any repercussions, as this is thankfully offset by Lachesis' Minor Hezul Holy Blood. Additionally, Azelle's Minor Fjalar Holy Blood will enable Diarmuid to be a formidable unit with any Magic Sword he wields.

Dew can make a good father, bestowing great Strength, other great growths, and good base stats. However he may not be able to pass down the Pursuit skill even if he is promoted. There would also not be much point to passing down the Bargain skill to Diarmuid because money should not be a problem for him. Alec can provide similar stats, but will not be as good.

Lex is another candidate who can make a good father, since Paragon makes many characters powerful in a short amount of time and Diarmuid joins early. If this is pursued then Diarmuid will have much of the same niche as Lex, having great strength and defense alongside an overall good speed stat. The biggest downsides is that Pursuit will not be passed down to him, and Lex does not wield swords, but these can be abated through the Pursuit Ring and having Lex kill enemies such as Chagall who do have swords that he can pass down to Diarmuid.

Midir can also make a good father, passing down the same skills as Beowolf and a better Speed growth. However Diarmuid's HP, Strength, Skill, and Luck will suffer, although the Strength loss will not matter much because he will most likely cap it anyway.

OverviewEdit

Think of Diarmuid as a weaker, more support-oriented version of Fergus. He has higher Movement and stats almost comparable to Fergus at similar levels. Regardless, Diarmuid still makes for a useful unit, with slightly above average stats for his level. He will end up being an above-average fighter, and when coupled with the Beo Sword, will be capable of taking out quite a number of enemies on his own. Furthermore, he will be able to provide noticeable bonuses to other units within two spaces, further enhancing his usefulness as a unit on the battlefield.

QuotesEdit

“Nngh... Good luck, Lord Seliph...”
—Diarmuid's death quote in Genealogy of the Holy War.
“Lord Leif... Please take care...of Nanna...”
—Diarmuid's death quote in Thracia 776.

Possible EndingsEdit

Diarmuid - The Charismatic Knight (カリスマの騎士 Karisuma no kishi)
"After the war, Diarmuid accompanied his cousin Ares to Agustria. With their hard work, Agustria was united and led to prosperity."

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

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

EtymologyEdit

Diarmuid was a warrior of Fianna in Irish mythology.

TriviaEdit

  • There is a minor script error that occurs in Genealogy of the Holy War during the conversation between Oifey and Diarmuid in Chapter 7 if Finn is Diarmuid's father. While discussing Nanna, Diarmuid says "I heard she was with a knight of Leonster named Finn", implying that Diarmuid is unfamiliar with Finn or the fact that Finn is his father. Given that Lewyn explains Lachesis' actions following the Belhalla Massacre to Diarmuid, it seems odd that neither he nor Oifey (who knows Finn) would tell Diarmuid that Finn is his father, particularly since they are both presumably aware that he is alive.
