Holland is a boss character in Fire Emblem Awakening. He is a Villager forced to work for Nelson to provide for his family.


Holland is employed by Nelson to take the Fire Emblem from Chrom. However, he is rather reluctant to fight, preferring to obtain money the normal way rather than through blood.

Severa, who is disgusted with Nelson and sympathetic to Holland's cause, decides to defect and encounters Chrom's Shepherds outside the fortress. Severa tells them that she needs to speak with Holland, so Chrom and the Shepherds help clear a path to him for her. Upon being spoken to by her, Holland becomes terrified as Nelson would certainly kill her for sure; Severa manages to convince Holland to desert, telling him that she had lost her parents. He realizes that his child deserves better and promptly leaves the fortress to reunite with his wife.

If killed, Severa turns hostile and attacks Chrom's army. This, however, must be deliberately done by the player, since despite being an enemy Holland will not attack the cast even if they're in his range.
