“...I'm sorry. I searched for a long, long time, but you never turned up... Besides, with the man I am now... with all the blood I've got on my hands... I figured it was better if you didn't have anything to do with me, wherever you were.”
—Galzus to his daughter Mareeta

Galzus is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is the prince of the fallen Kingdom of Rivough, the father of Mareeta, and the cousin of Prince Shannan of Isaach.


Galzus seeks revenge against the Kingdom of Isaach, after Rivough was invaded by King Mananan following Rivough's massacre of Darna. It appears he later decides to abandon the idea of revenge after Manster Castle is retaken. He also decides to leave Mareeta with Eyvel, who would not have allowed otherwise, though he promises to visit Mareeta once a year.

If Galzus dies or is not recruited, he will become the Deadlord Bovis.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Galzus has several capped stats, an abnormally high 8 move, 5 movement stars , a solid Pursuit Critical Coefficient of 3, and two deadly skills in the form of Luna and Astra. Even his Magic stat is well above par for his class. With such a wide variety of power, he could be considered to be of the Gotoh archetype, and a rare non-magical example, at that. When he joins, he will likely be your strongest fighter, other than Ced.

On top of all of that, Galzus has a stronger-than-normal support with Mareeta, an already extremely potent unit on her own right.

As an enemy, Galzus appears when the player's forces are practically at their weakest, with ludicrously high stats all around. Though it is possibly to defeat him by tricking him into capturing an unarmed unit, the player's best recourse is to simply run from him at full speed.

After liberating Manster, Galzus disappeared. There are no records, legends, or even rumors about his life thereafter.

  • Strangely, even though Galzus cannot level up, he still has growth rates, which have the same values as several other characters such as Olwen, Ilios and Xavier.
