Quan (JP) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the son of King Calf and Queen Alfiona of Leonster. He is the husband of Ethlyn and therefore the brother-in-law of Sigurd. He is also the father of Altena and Leif. Being a direct descendant of Crusader Noba, he has the ability to wield the Gáe Bolg. His life-long dream is to unite the war-torn Thracia Peninsula into one nation.
Prior to the storyline, Quan trained at the Royal Academy of Belhalla alongside Sigurd and Eldigan. During that time, the three of them became close friends and vowed to always aid each other in times of trouble.
At the beginning of the game, Quan and Ethlyn hear about the war between Grannvale and Verdane and rush to Sigurd's aid with Finn in tow. During Chapter 1, Quan tutors Finn, whom he strongly trusts, despite his lack of experience. He also meets Ayra and learns that her father, King Mananan of Isaach, is not responsible for the invasion of Darna. During Chapter 2, Quan gives the Brave Lance to Finn, which later becomes the latter's personal weapon in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. Near the end of Chapter 3, Quan receives the Gáe Bolg from Ethlyn, who held onto it earlier without giving it to him because she heard about its curse. However, he does not seem to believe in the curse and expresses confidence with the Gáe Bolg in his possession. After hiding in Silesse with Sigurd for one year, Quan leaves his army alongside Ethlyn and Finn to bring back reinforcements.
Quan and Ethlyn appear once again when travel through the Yied Desert to reunite with Sigurd. Despite Quan's opposition, Ethlyn brings along a three-year-old Altena. When he discovers that they are being followed by King Travant of Thracia and his Dragon Knights, he tells Ethlyn to escape with their young daughter, but she refuses and instead gives him hope that they can win the battle. If Ethlyn dies first, Quan will be forced to surrender the Gáe Bolg to Travant once he uses Altena as a hostage. Whether or not this occurs, he will perish in the battle, which later becomes known as the Yied Massacre.
