Personality and character


Main article: Gangrel/Supports

As with the other characters obtained via the SpotPass paralogues, Gangrel can only support with the Avatar.


Gangrel - Mad King
With the slaughter done, Gangrel retired to obscurity. While some claim he found another kingdom to rule and ruin, others insist he ended in the gutter. All agree he was dead within a matter of years.

Gangrel - Mad King & Avatar (F) - High Deliverer
Many wrote of Avatar's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone — she loved her husband, Gangrel, above all else.

Battle quotes

Victory quotes

As the boss of Chapter 11

Gangrel: Clinging to each other won't save you maggots when the boot falls!

Against Chrom in Chapter 11

Gangrel: Come, princeling! I've sharpened my sword just for you!
Chrom: My sister wished for our people to know peace, Gangrel. But as long as you draw breath, it can never come. For Ylisse!

DLC battle quotes

Other appearances


  • His title in the English version, the Mad King, is shared by Ashnard from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
  • His older concept art design seems to have been the basis of the generic Trickster class portraits.
  • There is a minor inconsistency in Gangrel's design between different art assets. In his regular portrait, he has long sharp fingernails; in his confession and official art, he has shorter, less sharp fingernails.
  • During the preparation phase of Chapter 9, Gangrel is temporarily on-screen. Selecting his name on the lower screen lists his information as "The cruel and fatalistic former king of Plegia", his description from Paralogue 18. In Chapter 11, his information correctly displays as "The self-styled 'Mad King of Plegia'."
