|“||Pegasus knights?! How am I supposed to stop the Lea- those REBELS with a handful of...of winged ponies! Send another messenger! Tell them we need Camus's Sable Order, or...or Michalis's Dragoons! Blast...I deserve the same protection as the rest of the Empire! Betraying Altea was Gharnef's idea! Let...let him fight the brat! Don't just stand there, DO something! I don't want to die!||„|
|~ Jiol after hearing of the Altean League's approach.|
Jiol (ジオル) is the king of Gra in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, its remake Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. He is also the father of Sheena, who he sired with his second wife.
Jiol is depicted as an elderly man with a beard and almost M-shaped eyebrows. He wears a black coat with matching cape, pants and boots. Jiol also wields a sword, which he keeps attached to his belt.
Jiol is a cowardly ruler primarily motivated by self-interest. When he believes he has the upper-hand in a situation, Jiol is an efficient commander with a bloodthirsty streak. When not in control, Jiol quickly breaks down in anger or panic.
In the beginning of the War of Shadows, while Altea's forces assisted Gra with repelling an invasion by Grust, Gharnef persuades Jiol to betray Altea. The resulting attack by Gra's soldiers claims many lives including that of King Cornelius, Marth's father. Afterwords, Gra and Grust launch a joint attack on Castle Altea, Jiol himself leading a squad of knights to hunt down Marth. However, the cavalier Frey disguises himself and successfully leads the knights away from the real Marth. Years later, the Altean League, led by Marth, storms Gra and kills Jiol. He is succeeded by Sheena.

|“||Grrr... Altean rabble! I should have killed you stragglers back when I had the chance!||„|
