—Macellan's death quote in Shadow Dragon
Macellan is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Book 1 of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and their remakes. He is found imprisoned with Dolph, Midia, Boah and Tomas in Castle Archanea. He also bears a striking similarity to his fellow knight Dolph, which is mentioned in their ending titles. In his ending he settles near the border and forms a band of watchmen.
Macellan's earliest in-universe appearance is in Fire Emblem: Archanea Saga, where he, Nyna, and the rest of Midia's knights attempt to get Nyna and Boah out of the Dolhr-occupied palace. However, they are ultimately captured by Camus.
By the time the Archanean League reaches the palace, Dolhr has decided to execute Macellan and the others, however together with Dolph, Macellan acted as a shield for the other prisoners, giving enough time for a rescue by the league. Macellan leaves the army at the war's end.
While Macellan is absent in Book 2 of the original Mystery of the Emblem, he is added in the remake, and automatically joins in chapter 16. By the end of war, he forms a group of watchmen which his comrades Tomas, and Dolph join.
In the remake, Macellan is shown to be a gourmet who enjoys cooking.
- Note: Macellan only appears in Book 1.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
While Macellan's base stats look meager on paper, he has excellent growth rates that bring all of his stats, sans Magic and Resistance, up rather nicely. His 100% growth rate in HP ensures that his HP will always end at 54 as a General, and his strength and defense growth rates bring the two stats up rather quickly. Furthermore, his skill/speed/luck ratio is not too shabby, as he can still hit the opponent and avoid inaccurate attacks. However, he has some competition with Draug, whose stats will be the same or better in every category, except for resistance. Draug also joins much earlier, and can be at a higher level than when Macellan joins. Despite this, do not overlook Macellan, as he is still a formidable unit that can be very useful. However, Macellan's usefulness as a tank (especially as a General) dwindles the harder the difficulty as his speed often results in him being doubled, especially egregious on Lunatic where he will come under attack by early forged weapons.
Macellan left the Archanean army without a word of explanation. He settled near the border and formed a band of watchmen.
New Mystery of the EmblemEdit
"The people wished for Macellan to return to the Archanean army, but he had other ideas, forming a band of watchmen near the border."
