Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Athos is the last unit to join the player's army in The Blazing Blade, in the final chapter of the game and as such is a part of the Gotoh archetpye. Athos comes at level 20 with high bases in every area, besides maybe his somewhat mediocre speed and HP, along with an S rank in all types of magic and an S rank in staves as well, not to mention the powerful Aureola and Forblaze tomes. Athos' main weakness is the heavy weight of endgame tomes, combined with his low constitution and average speed, making it difficult for him to double enemies and getting him doubled by some of the faster ones as well. As such, Athos is best used for finishing off foes along with another unit or as a support unit thanks to being able to use any staff in the game, in particular he makes great use of the Fortify staff. Athos can also be given 2 speedwing or 2 body rings to fix his speed issues and allowing him to one round the fire dragon with a Luna tome. Athos is also the only unit, along with Canas, able to one shot the fire dragon with a critical hit from a Luna and a Filla's Might from Nils.

Overall, Athos is a great unit for the final chapter, who will be able to carry even the weakest teams to victory with just a bit of help from stat boosting items and boosts from Nils.
