Homasa appears in Chapter 19 where he is ordered by Petrine to stop the Crimean Army from progressing, with aid of the Raven tribe. His weapon of choice is a Sonic Sword. He bears a striking resemblance to Stefan and even has a special battle conversation with him. He also has a conversation with Zihark, the other male swordmaster, and as well as Ike. The ensuring battle sees the raven laguz deserting Homasa and he is killed.
Homasa was also taught swordplay by his father, as revealed in his battle conversation with Ike.
Despite playing such a minor role, Homasa has an ideal of following the path of the sword, as to most swordmasters in the Fire Emblem titles. He takes pride in his skill with the blade, believing that his enemies won't be able to follow up with its dance. Homasa also takes interest in others who possess a skill with the blade, (likely those he deems worthy of his match), and will put his duty aside for a duel and prove to them he is superior in level of skill. A fact is shown with Zihark, Stefan, and Ike, as he is amused of the men's swordstyle, and will approach them for a duel without allowing them to refuse; in Zihark's case. In Ike's case, he finds his style a bit awkward, strong, and unique compared to what he's experienced, and equals their levels when discovering Ike was taught swordplay by his father, due to Homasa being taught the same way. In Stefan's case, it is revealed Homasa holds a tone of jealousy when realizing there are individuals having skills beyond his reach. This is shown when he mocks Stefan's swordstyle, and even ranks him as a fencer. When told by Stefan that he doesn't possess enough skill to challenge him, and suggest he put his blade aside to keep his life, this angers Homasa greatly, causing him to brashfully charge at Stefan, and lose his life in the process.

Homasa: My sword is lightning! Do you think you can follow its dance?
Homasa: Your fighting style is...unique. It is rough and awkward, yet terribly strong. Who was your teacher?
Ike: My father.
Homasa: Really? Then we are same. My father taught me to wield a sword as well. Neither of us can afford to lose.
Homasa: You are a swordsman as well. And, it appears, quite skilled! May I ask for a duel?
Zihark: I dislike contests with strangers, but I don't think I can refuse. Can I?
Homasa: "It seems you're quite a fencer. Shall I teach you something?"
Stefan: "Sheathe your blade. If that's all the skill you possess, you're not ready to challenge me."
Homasa: "What?! Have at you!"
Homasa: "I've fought many of your kind before, and I know all of your techniques. Will you challenge me even so?"
—Homasa's Death Quote
- Though his base animation and character looks no different than most Swordmasters in Path of Radiance, he wears no head gear, and his over coat is colored black with red flames. This gives him a more distinguished appearance from most other Swordmasters in the game.
