Munnir (Gandolf in the Trading Card Game, Gandlf in the Fire Emblem Museum) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is one of the three sons of the king of Verdane, and the lord of Marpha Castle. Manipulated by Sandima and seemingly devoid of any morals, Munnir attacks Jungby Castle in Grannvale and captures Lady Edain. His younger brother, Jamke, later frees her, however, with Sigurd's army arriving shortly to defeat him thereafter.
