“Blast! You made it through this snow... Curse that useless woman!”
—Martel

Martel is the boss of Chapter 18A: The Frozen River (Ilia) in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He captured Niime to cast a spell which is said to have been lost centuries ago to cause rainfall in snowy Ilia and confuse Roy's army. Niime ironically casts another spell that made the rivers freeze over, allowing Roy's army to advance more quickly.

His sprite is a recolor of Oro's. He shares this trait with another boss, Windam.
