“Thul, I always taught you as I would my own son, had I any. This breaks my heart. Tell me your story, and I will judge if I can allow you to live.”
—Lysander to Thul, Winnowing

Lysander (ライサンダー Raisandā) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Unbound. He is the former general of the imperial army, but defected because of his loyalty to Thul.


Lysander is the general of the Tsuunic army. He was formerly Thul's mentor, but after the usurpation he was promoted to the rank of general and his forces were sent to tighten the new regime's grasp on the land. During this time, he was a approached by Thul. He initially attempted to slay the young lord, having heard the new regime's accusations, but found that it was not in his heart to do so and instead listened to his former protégé's explanation of events. Having heard them, he turned his back on the new regime, taking with him as many soldiers as were loyal to him, and fought his way through the rest.


Lysander is said to have an old soul, for while he is in fact not very old, he often acts as though he was. He regularly makes statements about retiring after the war is over, though it has been speculated that he does not mean these truthfully. He is also fond of poetry and claims to be writing his memoirs. Times of trouble bring forth a stoic, reserved side of him, which is in fact his way of never giving in to despair.
