​Aran ​is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He was initially a Soldier fighting with the Begnion Occupational Army in Daein, but later joins the Dawn Brigade and the Daein Liberation Army.


Aran is a childhood friend of Laura, having lived in Kisca with her for a good part of his early life. He was orphaned in Daein as a child, and was afterwards adopted by a merchant family who lived in Begnion. Aran eventually joined the Begnion Army to express his gratitude towards the country that had given him refuge.

Aran was initially posted as a guard at Glaive Prison, one of the Begnion-controlled prisons in Daein. However, when Laura is taken prisoner by Begnion's forces, Aran secretly allows the Dawn Brigade to sneak into the prison to rescue both Laura and Micaiah.

In the following battle that ensues between the Dawn Brigade and the Begnion Guards, Aran appears as part of the enemy forces. When he is later confronted by Laura, Aran decides to enlist into the Dawn Brigade, which will later become part of the Daein Liberation Army.

In the game's epilogue, Aran, hailed as the Loyal Halberdier, will serve as a lookout for his hometown for many years. He is said to be largely relied upon, in spite of his clumsy work.
