Gandolf (ガンドルフ Gandorufu, Gandlf in 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, Gandolf attacks Jungby Castle in Grannvale and captures Lady Adean. His younger brother, Jamke, later frees her, however, with Sigurd's army arriving shortly to defeat him thereafter.
|Starting Class||Holy Blood|
While Gandolf appears as a boss in the Prologue chapter, the player does not fight him until Chapter 1, as he leaves the battlefield on the first turn.
