—Maios talking to himself in Chapter 4 regarding Sigurd and his army.
Maios is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the Duke of Thove Castle, and the youngest brother of Duke Daccar and the late King of Silesse, the uncle of Prince Lewyn, and brother-in-law to Queen Rahna.
Maios is first mentioned in chapter 2 by Lewyn where it is revealed that he and his brother have been a constant critic of their nephew, Lewyn.
When Daccar led a coup against Rahna and Lewyn 4, Maios joined in due to his refusal to allow Prince Lewyn to ascend the throne. Maios commands an army to attack Sigurd's army, relying on his trusted commander Deet'var supported by Cuvuli's mage brigade.
He is later killed by Sigurd's army. After his death, the village elder in Thove was appointed the governor until a proper replacement could be found.
Maios is later revealed to have been a pawn of his elder brother, Daccar, who used Maios assault in his task to distracting Rahna's forces from Duke Daccar laying siege to Silesse Castle.
Maos was described as a greedy ruler, he viewed Sigurd's arrival in Silesia as a chance to claim the bounty on the now wanted Grannvale noble. Maios viewed Lewyn as too young and foolish to rule Silesse. While Maos got well with his subordinates, the elder of Thove says most citizens supported Rahna over Maos.

Maios is one of the many barons who are fought in this game. As he possesses the Tornado tome, any unit without good resistance stands a good chance of sustaining serious damage when attempting to fight him.

Battle Conversations Edit
- Maios: Hmph. If isn't Queen Rahna's idiot son. So you've come back.
- Lewyn: Sorry, uncle, but for Silesse's sake, I must kill you.
—Maios's death quote
- As Maios's older brother (Lewyn's father) is stated to have carried Major Forseti Blood in the Fire Emblem 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia artbook, Maios and Daccar should have at least Minor blood, but for some reason, neither of them do. This is perhaps due to the game engine of FE4, creating generic and minor bosses with minimal resources, preventing them from having holy blood, nor luck or personal skills.
- Maios's in-game portrait is a recolor of Elliot, a prior boss who appears to be much younger then Maos.
