Interesting. But I've little interest in following someone else's orders. ...Unless they're handed down by a man who can fight for himself.
— Priam

Priam (Japanese: パリス Paris) is a world-travelling warrior in the era of Ylisse and a descendant of Ike, the legendary Radiant Hero.

Fire Emblem Awakening


The Shepards learn of the existence of a Hidden Village, where the descendant of the Radiant Hero resides. Chrom reluctant to believe such, has the Shepards go to recruit the individual for the fight against Grima. As they get closer to the village, Priam suddenly appears. Chrom states his offer, after being questioned by Priam. Priam thought the offer interesting, but wouldn't accept until he knew the orders, "Unless they're handed down by a man who can fight for himself." A battle insures to test Chrom's army.

After the Chrom's army had won the battle. They learn that everyone in Priam's army were once people that had challenged Priam to battle. People from Ylisse, Valm, Ferox, and even Plegia were in the army. After one soldier asks for a final match against Priam, it can be assumed that he challenged them all for the final time. Priam joins the Shepards.

Personality and character

Priam is notably similar to Ike in many respects: he is not the greatest thinker there is, but he is as talented a swordsman as they come. He is very sociable and easy to get along with, and is fond of telling stories from his travels. In his travels across the world, he pursues power and to further develop himself as a warrior, and so enjoys fighting aginst those who are stronger than him.


Main article: Priam/Supports

As with the other characters obtained via SpotPass, Priam can only support with Robin.


Priam, Radiant Hero (single ending)
Priam vanished like a breath on the wind. Did his pursuit of true power lead him to a quiet corner of the map? Or did he move to another continent—one where the Radiant Hero's legend held more meaning?

Priam, Radiant Hero & Robin, High Deliverer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Priam, above all else.

Flavor text

Game Text
Awakening Scion of a legendary hero.
He seeks only greater power.


The earliest known screenshot of Path of Radiance, wherein Ike appears with the name パリス, Paris.
  • Priam's Japanese name, Paris, is likely named as a reference to the early stages of the development of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance; his ancestor, Ike, was named "Paris" in a very early pre-release image of Path of Radiance.[1] Before Priam was formally unveiled with the SpotPass release of his paralogue, the presence of this name in the game's credits and support listings for Robin led to much speculation about him being connected in some way to Ike.
  • Priam shares his Japanese voice actor with Frederick.
  • To further Priam's connection with Ike, he possesses both Sol and Luna, the skills that make up Aether, which was Ike's signature skill in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
  • Three of Priam's starting skills are Swordbreaker, Lancebreaker, and Luna, which can be learned by the Wyvern Lord, Griffon Rider, and Great Knight classes; these classes are inaccessible to Priam.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes


From the Ancient Greek Πριαμος (Priamos), possibly meaning "redeemed". In Greek legend Priam was the king of Troy during the Trojan War and the father of many children including Hector and Paris.[2]



Officially romanized as Paris. While the name "Paris" is commonly associated with the capital city of France, it is more probable that in this context he is named in reference to the mythological Paris, a Trojan prince and hero in Greek mythology.
