“So long as Grust continues to support Dolhr's ambitions, it does not matter what I know or think. I am a knight; I have a duty to fight for my motherland's glory till the very end.”
—Camus to Nyna in Chapter 20 of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.

Camus, later known under the aliases Zeke and Sirius, is a character who appears throughout the Archanea Series. He is the leader of the Sable Knights of Grust. His king decides to ally with Dolhr, and despite his sense of honor and integrity, he obeys his country and fights against Marth. He is said to be the most able warrior alive. He is 29 years old according to unused internal data in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Profile[edit | edit source]

War of Shadows[edit | edit source]

When Grust forged an alliance with Dolhr, he did not protest, unlike General Lorenz. When Nyna was sent into the Sable Order's custody, and when Dolhr ordered for her execution, Camus took her to Aurelis so that Hardin could protect her. When Archanea was looted, one of the Three Regalia, Gradivus, was given to Camus. Unfortunately, for incurring the wrath of Medeus by helping Nyna escape, he was put on a short leash. When Nyna explained all these events to Marth, he knew Nyna wished for Camus to be spared should they ever face him in battle. Camus eventually faced Marth's army where Marth attempted to persuade Camus into joining his cause. Despite Camus knowing that Marth's army was the just ones in the battle, his unwavering loyalty to his country prevented him from leaving his position. Even with Nyna's protests to convince Camus to fight against Dolhr, Camus reluctantly continues to remain loyal to his country to the bitter end. In the end, Camus is seemingly killed in battle, much to Marth and Nyna's regret.

Gaiden/Echoes: Shadows of Valentia[edit | edit source]

In reality, he survived the battle and was washed ashore to Rigel in Valentia two years before the game's events. Without any memories of his past life, he was nursed back to health by Tatiana, a Rigelian saint whom he would later fall in love with. He was named "Ezekiel", Zeke for short by King Rudolf, and forged a common trust with the King and rose to become a high ranking general in the Rigelian army due to his sheer strength in battle. Before the war started, Rudolf told Zeke to look for a boy with a mark on his hand. He ordered Zeke to follow this boy as the boy would be destined to save all of Valentia. He opposed the war with Zofia but nevertheless followed orders. When fellow Rigelian commander, Jerome, disobeyed the King's orders by committing raids against villages, such as Rigel Village, Zeke attempted to stop him. However, this led to Tatiana being captured by Jerome's fellow traitor, Nuibaba, in order to force him to fight for them.

Should Alm's army kill Nuibaba, Tatiana is rescued and brought into his forces. Upon seeing Tatiana among Alm's forces, Camus immediately turns on Jerome's army. Zeke thanks Alm for saving his beloved, but states that he refuses to fight against Rudolf whom he owes a great debt to. However, when Zeke noticed a mark on Alm's left hand, he leaves the Rigel army and joins Alm's army. After the war, Zeke lived a happy life with Tatiana. He recovered all of his memories as Camus, but he chose to keep this revelation to himself and vowed never to tell her of his own dark past.

War of Heroes[edit | edit source]

However, his happy life was put on hold when he received news of Hardin's ascension to the throne, subsequent fall to madness, and the appointment of the corrupt General Lang to rule over the occupied Grust. Donning a mask from Conrad and going under the alias of Sirius, he returned to Archanea to stop the madness. He first appeared to Ogma when the latter was protecting the Grustian royal children Yuliya and Jubelo from Macedon's Vikings, and is asked to join the Altean army fighting Lang. While he notes that he is not promising anything, he joins the army once the Vikings are defeated. During the war, when confronted by Belf, a former Sable Knight, who saw through the guise and identified Sirius as Camus. He explains his reasoning for hiding his identity: The revelation that he survived would incite an insurrection of Grust, with him serving as its symbol, which would be unaffordable in the war effort.

Later on, due to his true identity, he was able to snap Nyna out of her mind control from Medeus despite denying to her that he is Camus. She protests, but he states that she is tired and should return to Marth's side, followed by an apology which she overhears. After the end of the war, Camus left Archanea without another word to anyone except for Nyna, whom he told that he was returning to someone across the sea who was awaiting his return.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Camus is the highest example of a knight. He is unwaveringly honorable, righteous, and loyal to his nation. Even when knowing that his nation is wrong in its motivations during war, Camus always stays true to his code as a knight until the bitter end, even if it results in his own death. Such loyalty often works to his own detriment, however, as he is not necessarily happy to wage war against Zofia in Echoes, but feels too indebted to Rudolf to go against his orders. At the same time, his loyalty to Rudolf also causes some confusion and conflict as the person who bore the mark he was ordered to fight for ironically led him to fighting against Rudolf himself.

As Zeke, Camus loses all of his memories, but retains his honorable personality. While he does want to regain his lost memories, he is plagued by the idea that they may be ones of darkness and pain. As the story progresses, he slowly regains his memories. While painful, he chooses to bear these in secret for the sake of his new lover in Valentia, Tatiana.

Deep down, Camus is a very caring individual to those he has grown close with. This is best shown in his relationships with Nyna and Tatiana. Camus assisted Nyna in escaping the Dolhrian Empire's execution, thus betraying his country for the first time—and the only time (under his original identity). During his battle against Marth, Camus refused to betray his country, despite Nyna's protests and attempts to get him to fight for her cause. Nevertheless, he bids her farewell before the fight and recalls his time with her fondly. It is also due to her life being put in danger by Medeus that spurs him to return to Archanea later. He turns her down once more as he is in love with Tatiana.

Tatiana is the person who he values above all others. She later becomes Zeke's Achilles heel as when she was captured, the threat of her own demise forced Camus to fight alongside Jerome, whom he despised for his actions. With her rescue, he promptly betrays Jerome and joins Alm's cause under Rudolf's orders to follow a man bearing the Brand. In his supports with Tatiana, he assures her that he would never leave her, even if his memories return and is highly receptive to her insecurities regarding him regaining his memories. While he eventually does regain them, he keeps his past a secret. Even when he returns to Archanea to save Nyna, he returns back to Tatiana.

Zeke is a high-end Pre-Promoted unit that Alm can recruit near the end of his route. He starts with average to above average stats in everything but Luck and Resistance, and has excellent growth in everything except for Strength, which is average(and is offset by the fact that he starts with high base Strength). If choosing to level Zeke up, he will wind up very close to Mathilda in overall power. He is one of the best characters in the game, and he can hold his own as soon as the player recruit him.

Sirius is a prepromoted unit. Despite prepromoted units being known for having low growths and low bases compared to their starting level, Sirius' base stats will still be considerably higher than most of your other units at the time of his joining chapter, and his growths rival or are even better than other cavaliers / paladins. He is useful with no investment required and remains useful later in the game with his high weapon ranks and will usually end up with considerable HP and Strength and will have a lot of Skill and Defense for a Paladin. His base luck is poor, but at higher difficulties, this allows him to draw enemy aggression away from weaker allies. Keep in mind that he is also needed during the Final Chapter to recruit Nyna.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Camus is one of the earliest Lance Cavalry units who was also a Grand Hero Battle, making him an easily accessible unit with a strong weapon for his time, but has fallen out of relevance with time. His statline is mostly balanced with a decent offensive statline and physical bulk. Unfortunately, his Res is low which causes problems with the ability of his lance. While he does have some situations where he is at least decent, nothing about him at the current moment has brought him on level with the scores of heroes released long after him.

Gradivus is a strong lance whose only effect is that is grants him a Distant Counter effect. While this means he can bait Bow and Dagger units, he is not suited to take Mages due to his low magical bulk. In its current state, it is his best weapon but it still is not enough to make him standout over other lance cavalry units out there.

Growing Thunder allows him to damage enemies in a specific pattern calculated between his Atk and the Def of each individual enemy in the area of effect. Unfortunately, his Atk is not exactly the highest, meaning that he is not quite as explosive when using this skill. Grani's Shield is an exclusive Skill A to Camus that removes his Cavalry weakness. While this may remove the bonus damage of certain units like Gray which saves him, perhaps one of the most notable Cavalry counters, Micaiah and her various forms, does not require the bonus damage to at least deal critical damage. It is decent to consider running as its there, but it is far from the strongest option that he can run when Skill Inheritance exists. Goad Cavalry helps boost the Atk/Spd of his fellow Cavalry allies by 4 during combat so long as they are within two spaces of them when they are in combat. The boost is useful in most situations and is worth maintaining if keeping him exclusively on a Cavalry team where he too is most likely at his strongest.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Bulky greens like Surtr and Hector easily can take a hit from him with little trouble then retaliate through their own sheer strength while fast greens like Raven can easily double him. Even some blue units can do this too under the same prerequisites. As mentioned, his low Res is easily exploited by the common Blue and Green mages that flooded the earliest and later releases of Heroes. With staff users later receiving Wrathful Staff, they too also can deal huge damage to him. Finally, Cavalry effective weapons, if not running Grani's Shield, exploits his status.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]

Reposition is the go to Special for him as its ability to move allies out of danger and put himself in front can save an ally from danger, especially if he can stay out of the range or position him between an ally and an enemy that he can counter through color advantage. Bonfire is a much stronger special as it takes advantage of his decent Def for damage fuel.

Stance skills like Fierce Stance, Steady Stance, and/or Warding Stance works well by focusing on defensive builds and baiting units. The latter can decrease the number of mages that he can survive and retaliate, while the two capitalizes on his core strongest stats. Vantage is a long running early option to ensure he can deal with his foes before they can to either secure a kill or soften them for an ally to retaliate. Goad Cavalry is useful, but Hone Cavalry/Fortify Cavalry can be considered as well.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Sirius, aka Masked Camus, is a far superior version of his unmasked, normal version despite not innately having Distant Counter on his weapon. His offensive stats are stronger than before and his physical bulk remains workable, but his magical resistance is still quite low. Nonetheless, his stats are strong enough to easily be put to work with moderate success and being a cavalry unit with his stats and base kit allows him to charge the enemy with dispatch them with ease.

Sable Lance decreases his Special Cooldown by 1, allowing him to charge it faster. When he is not adjacent to an ally, he gains +4 to his core stats, making him far stronger than he seems. It also can be strengthened by other skills that rely on a unit to be alone, such as his innate Attack Speed Solo, which further increases his Atk/Spd by 6 when alone, meaning that when alone, he has +10 Atk/Spd and +4 Def/Res. He is a solo unit meant to begin combat and should avoid staying close to allies to make the most of these two skills.

Luna is his Special and with his weapon's effect, he has the same cooldown as Moonbow, but instead ignores 50% of his opponent's Def rather than just 30 for the same cooldown as Moonbow's base. Lull Attack Speed inflicts -3 Atk/Spd to his opponent and if they have any visible buff to those two stats, they are also negated, allowing him to hit harder and score some doubles on more units than before.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Sirius still is quite weak to mages and Wrathful Staff units as he still has poor Res even if Sable Lance's Res boost is active, though that may help more towards wall Mages. While his cavalry status does give him mobility, it still makes him weak to Horseslayer units and especially Micaiah who is notorious as a Cavalry killer. Finally, some Greens are able to withstand his attacks even with all of his skills active and can deal moderate damage through color advantage.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]
Reposition is an excellent positioning skill for his Support to give him better synergy on just about any team though that ally needs to move away so he can have his weapon active. Shove or Smite can also be considered just to move them away out of danger and himself. Bonfire is a great Special as it has more consistency in damage output than Luna and the accelerated cooldown means that he can activate it more often. Galeforce is also with considering as his sheer damage output can easily allow him to activate it and continue rampaging through his enemy. Attack Smoke or Defense Smoke are perhaps his best Skill C just to help him soften their attacks or defenses respectively to increase his damage output. Goad Cavalry or Ward Cavalry allows him to help his teammates even when distancing himself just enough to not be adjacent to an ally, but still give his Cavalry allies some help.
