"Please... Please wait. I'm sorry... Please forgive me... I was just following the Emperor's orders. I also hate what I have done, but I had no choice. So... So... Please... Help me... Please... just let me explain. Yes... That's right... Like that... You let your guard down... Idiot... Die!!"
- Lang's battle quote in Chapter 6 of Mystery of the Emblem
Lang (ラング Rangu) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and its remake, Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. He is a general of the Archanean Empire and the Marquess of Adria.
During the War of Shadows, Lang betrayed his nation to the Dragon Empire of Dolhr so he could rob from his own people. When Dolhr started losing, Lang defected back to Archanea. Taking advantage of the Emperor's despair, Lang gets himself appointed as Overseer of Grust, a defeated nation that in the previous war allied with Dolhr. The sadistic Lang commits various atrocities on Grust, including killing people that could oppose him, capturing young girls to rape and pimp, ordering the massacre of family members of those who participated in the rebellion, and executing the preteen heirs of Grust. When confronted over his actions, Lang tries to put the blame for his action on the Emperor so he could trick his foes into letting their guard down.
Lang is a vicious psychopath, loyal to no one, and willing to do anything to satisfy his own greed and sadism.
