I am the wings of despair. I am the breath of ruin. I am the fell dragon, Grima...
~ Grima introducing himself to Validar

Grima is the main antagonist of the video game Fire Emblem Awakening. He is the powerful fell dragon that destroyed Lucina's family in the future.


Apparently around Around 1,000 years in the past, Grima made a blood pact with a man in which the man would surrender his body to Grima, but gain some of the dragon's power. Grima then tried to take over Ylisse, but was stopped by a Nameless Hero with a pact with Naga. In the time that would follow, the man's descendants spent their time trying to breed a child which would be able to act as Grima's vessel, eventually leading to Validar, and Robin.

In the Future timeline, Grima succeeded in possessing Robin, and conquered the continent of Ylisse. However Lucina got away, and time-traveled to the past.

To follow Lucina, Grima time-traveled into the present in order to keep Lucina from preventing the ritual that would already awaken the Grima of the past. It was shown that he revived with Validar. When he first interacted with Chrom and Avatar, he appeared in the body of the Robin of the future. Later on, after Validar's defeat, the fell dragon was awakened and Grima began to stir in chaos. After the final battle, if Chrom delivers the final blow, he would go back to his slumber; but if the Avatar delivers the final blow, both he/she and Grima would die. Either way, he was defeated in the end.
