“The might of Altea, ye say, now? Har! Ye sprogs look t'be a mite short o'mighty t'me.”
—Gazzak's Battle Quote

Gazzak (ガザック) is the boss of Chapter 1 of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and its remakes. He is both the very first boss that Marth faces in the game and the first boss to appear in the franchise.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Gazzak was a member of the Galder Pirates, a gigantic band of pirates who with their captain Gomer took over the harbor town of Galder and made it their hideout. Leading an army of pirates, Gazzak attacked the nearby Kingdom of Talys, taking over the castle and endangering King Mostyn.

Caeda informed Marth who had taken refuge in the island kingdom during his exile after Dolhr's takeover of Altea. Together with Caeda, Marth led his remaining knights to fight and eventually rout Gazzak and his forces.

Gazzak's actions would convince Marth he was finally ready to play his part in the War of Shadows.

Fates[edit | edit source]

There is a capturable boss character in Fire Emblem Fates that is named after, and heavily based on Gazzak. See the page for this Gazzak.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gazzak had a beard in Mystery of the Emblem and somewhat softer face. His portrait was re-colored and re-used by all the fighter, pirate, and thief bosses in the game.
  • In the original NES version, Gazzak had no portrait at all despite having a unique name.
  • Gazzak's name is similar (identical in Japanese) to that of the boss of Forrest's paralogue Abducted in Fire Emblem Fates.
