Organization Overview

You persist in your ignorance of Duma's teachings at your own peril!
~ Jamil
Oh, dear. Such naughty children, lashing out at Lord Duma so! You've earned quite the punishment...
~ Marla
Why do you refuse Duma's truth? It is incomprehensible...
~ Hestia

The Duma Faithful (Duma Faith in Japanese), also called "The Faithful" and, by their detractors, the Cult of Duma, are a religious organization in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. True to its name, the Faithful is dedicated to the will of Lord Duma, who its followers refer to as the War Father. The Duma Faithful are the state church and sole religion of Rigel.

Biography

The Duma Faithful was founded along with the country of Rigel in the Year 1989 of the Valentian Calendar by Duma himself. The War Father desired to implement his beliefs for the benefit of humanity, chiefly that power and military might are what provides the ideal path forward. The Duma Faithful held such teachings dear, which caused conflict between them and the Mila Faithful, a sect of worshipers of Duma's peaceful sister Mila.

After thousands of years, Duma began to succumb to dragon degeneration, and his church underwent a drastic upheaval. Lord Halcyon, High Priest of the Duma Faithful, was one of the few members who questioned Duma’s sudden desire to conquer Valentia. For this, Halcyon excommunicated and fled to the Lost Treescape. With Duma's support, Lord Jedah, became the new High Priest and transformed the Duma Faithful into a more militaristic organization.

Under Jedah's guidance, the Duma Faithful began to research Terrors (various undead and supernatural monsters) and how to conjure them into the world. In addition, many of its members offered their souls or the souls of others as sacrifices to Duma, giving them unearthly power, but reducing them to mindless shells.

Trivia

  • In the original game, the majority of the Duma Faithful bosses had uttered the same final quote upon defeat and death in a hypnotic tone: "May the blessings of Duma--". In the remake, they have different last quotes, with the exception of Jamil, who now utters "Duma's blessings...be upon us...".
