Scipio is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the son of Andrey, the nephew of Brigid and Edain, the cousin of Lester, Lana, Febail, and Patty, and one of the grandsons of Ring. He is the duke of Yngvi in the second generation.


Scipio makes his appearance in the Final Chapter, carrying out the vengeance that his father asked of him in his final words. He eventually falls to the might of Seliph's liberation army while trying to halt their advance to Friege Castle.


While not much is seen of Scipio's personality, he appears to be rather arrogant and cruel, just like his father was. He also nurses a deep hatred for his cousins, whom he sees as traitors to House Yngvi who caused his father's death.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Scipio is extremely powerful, as he has high stats, three Leadership stars, deadly skills, and wields a Killer Bow. If he manages to perform a critical hit with his bow, the character whom he targets will most likely be either severely weakened or defeated on the spot. As such, it is thus recommended to utilize strong characters such as Ares, Shannan, and the army's Forseti user to bring him down. However, it is not advisable to attack him when he is positioned on a forest tile unless necessary, as he is capable of dodging attacks rather well. It would be a great idea not to use too many units to face off against Scipio, as the players still has to be aware of Hilda and the Gelben Ritter, who are positioned directly north of his Beige Ritter troops. As with all enemies that are only capable of wielding bows, Scipio will be completely powerless if the player manages to box him in with four units.

Scipio Africanus was a Roman general and consul who fought for his country during the Second Punic War. He is most well known for his victory over the Carthaginian general Hannibal, which caused him to be regarded as one of the greatest military commanders and strategists of all time.


  • Scipio's portrait is recolored from his father, Andrey.
  • Despite being of crusader lineage in lore, Scipio has no holy blood in-game.
    • Due to his father Andrey possessing minor Ullr holy blood, Scipio should likely have inherited the same.
