“Ah! What?! It can't be… Have those children broken through the seal?! Ngh… Leif, you heathen… You're an impudent brat standing in the way of the divine! I'll send you to oblivion to meet your parents—but not before you spend a century or two decorating my altar as a petrified statue!”
—Veld

Veld is the final boss in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a dark bishop of the Loptr Church, the administrator of all of the cult's activities in the Munster District, and the wielder of Petrify, a rare form of dark magic capable of petrifying its victims. He was responsible for the Aed Massacre by informing King Travant of the movements and vulnerability of Quan and Ethlyn as they traveled through the Aed Desert, using the assassination of Quan as a means to turn North and South Thracia against each other. During the Grannvale occupation of the Munster District, Veld acts as a benefactor to Duke Raydrik of Munster, providing him with the Loptous Sword and the support of the Loptrian forces.

Profile[]

Shortly after Raydrik's arrest of Leif, Veld is present in the Munster Castle arena with Raydrik, watching Eyvel and Nanna fight against gladiators set upon them by Raydrik. When Eyvel is able to defeat most of the enemies and resist Mareeta's attempts to kill her, Veld casts Petrify upon her and turns her to stone, then leaves with Raydrik, allowing Leif to escape.

Later, when Leif's army returns to Munster for their final battle with Raydrik, Veld expresses his disgust with Raydrik's failures and threatens to cut his support, but nonetheless gives Raydrik a small unit of the Bergrosen to use against Leif. Following Raydrik's defeat, Veld turns him into the Deadlord Mus and sets him up to guard the Munster Loptrian temple against Leif's assault. To assist him in battle, Manfroy entrusts Veld with five more Deadlords. Ultimately, Leif's army defeats the Deadlords, unlocks Veld's chamber, and defeats Veld.

Personality[]

Amoral and manipulative, Veld holds his reverence and fear for his god above all else. He lives with a Machiavellian philosophy that any act, no matter how cruel — child hunts, burning entire villages to the ground in displays of power — is justified so long as it is in service to Loptous. All of existence belongs to his beloved god, and his life's work reflects this. The people he commands are mere pawns, as shown when he spares no sympathy for Raydrik's demise. He carries his mad obsession to his god to his very dying breath, confident that Loptous and his empire will thrive once more.

Compared to all other final bosses, Veld is by far one of the easiest, but getting to him is the hard part. Use the Kia Staff to remove the Stone condition on your units, but if you do not have that, kill Veld as soon as possible, because if he manages to inflict Stone on Leif, you essentially lose. Galzus or Ced are characters that can take Veld down with fairly little effort.

Or, because the Throne he stands on does not grant +10 Magic, you could easily boost Tina's magic by having her stand on a magic floor and/or raise her magic power with a Barrier Staff and, with the Thief Staff, steal his Petrify tome. You can either kill him without risk of Petrify from there, or steal his other weapons and Capture him, instantly neutralizing him.

Veld has high stats, but that is not a new threat to the player. Due to its weight, Veld only has a 6% chance of activating Adept when he is equipped Jormugandr, and has a very slow Attack Speed as a result. However, if it does activate, it could deal high damage to units with low Magic; The use of Pure Water may be helpful, as will the Nihil skill. As Veld will not move from his throne, a simple strategy is to surround him with powerful units and any relevant supports and give them a Scroll to nullify Veld's potential chance to cause a critical hit.

Etymology[]

Literally, veld means "field," and is akin to "feld," the Old English predecessor of "field."

Trivia[]

  • Veld is one of the three final bosses whose defeat does not result in an instant victory, as the player still has to seize the throne afterwards. Others are Medeus (Mystery of the Emblem only) and Julius.
  • Among the final bosses in the Fire Emblem series, Veld is unique in that he is a normal human acting under his own will, as opposed to a dragon, a god, a demon, or a human that has been possessed or controlled by a dragon or other evil entity. Ashnard of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance is similar, though he becomes empowered by Lehran's Medallion on the game's hardest difficulty setting.
  • Veld is the only final boss in the series who can be defeated without reducing his HP to zero or even damaging him at all, as his middling Constitution notably does not prevent high-Constitution units such as Dagdar or Galzus from capturing him if you steal his weapons beforehand.
  • Veld shares his English voice actor, Edward Bosco, with Líf, Gustav, Luke, and Klein.
  • Veld is one of two final bosses in the series to not have their own unique class, the other being Takumi.
    • Veld and Takumi are also the only two final bosses whose classes are playable, with Takumi's class, Sniper, being a recurring playable class throughout the series and Veld's class, Dark Bishop, eventually becoming playable in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
      • Veld is the only final boss to have their class eventually become playable.
