|“||But you have to read it. You don't want Father MacGregor to discipline you again.||”|
— Lyon to Ephraim
Years before the events of the game, Father MacGregor was one of Lyon's, Eirika's and Ephraim's teachers in Grado. While both Eirika and Lyon were dutiful students, Ephraim's mind often wandered, and was thus frequently scolded. MacGregor guided the trio throughout the years, and was one of the people aware of Lyon's magical studies involving the Sacred Stone of Grado. Lyon hoped to eventually persuade and relieve MacGregors worries by demonstrating the immense power of the stone and its uses for the greater good.
Personality and character
Ephraim appears to have not really liked MacGregor, primarily due to the harsh reactions he would receive from negelcting his studies. MacGregor seems to have taught a wide range of subjects, from court courtesy to history.
