Maijin is a boss character from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. He is a Knight of Daein sent to patrol the roadside of Crimea and serves as the boss of Chapter 4. At the sight of the Greil Mercenaries, he orders them to put down their weapons. When the group does not comply, Maijin orders his men to kill them. Eventually, Ike and Soren manage to kill Maijin.


Maijin appears to be very impatient. When his group encounters the Greil Mercenaries, he orders that they throw down their weapons. When the mercenaries hesitate for just a moment, Maijin orders his soldiers to kill them. They may have ended up fighting anyway, but Maijin's impatience essentially started the battle that caused his death.

“Grrr! Blasted mercenaries. They're better than I expected. Even so, they'll not prove a match for Daein's finest!”
—Maijin's battle quote

Battle Conversations[]

vs Titania[]

  • Maijin: I've fought the Crimean army before. The Royal Guard has some skill, but the rest are a poor joke. Which will you prove to be? Hmm? Perhaps you'll offer me some entertainment after all.
  • Titania: If you attacked us because you thought we were with the Crimean army, you made a mistake. I left my post years ago. Now, I'm nothing more than a common mercenary.
  • Maijin: That means nothing to me. You're not of Daein, you're armed, and you're here: It's our job to destroy you. Simple, wouldn't you say? Come, dog! Prepare yourself!
  • Titania: I'd just as soon avoid this bloodshed, but that seems unlikely. If that's the way it is, I'll not hold back!

vs Ike[]

  • Maijin: Bah! You're nothing more than a bunch of ragtag sellswords. Who are you to oppose Daein? You are so terribly ignorant of your position in this world.
  • Ike: You refused to listen to us, and then you attacked without provocation! Is this the way of the Daein army?
  • Maijin: You're a cheeky little monkey, aren't you? Once you're dead, you'll regret sassing me!

vs Soren[]

  • Maijin: A mage, eh? I'll have to keep my guard up around you, no matter how young you look.
  • Soren: You forced this combat. We cannot allow you to return home. Are you ready to die?

Death Quote[]

“Gwaa haa... Wretched curs... You will regret your decision to oppose Daein...”
—Maijin's death quote


  • Despite being of the Knight class, the armor shown in his portrait does not seem to be consistent with the game's armor knight design, especially when compared to other Daein armor knight bosses like Dakova and Kamura. If anything, he resembles an enemy from the Cavalier classline.
