|“||If that pile of pudding was your master, I'd advise you to just keep walking.||”|

Normal Hard Lunatic
Personality and character
Cassius is known to play dirty, as he took a hostage when killing Kjelle's master, and is said to never fight an honest duel. Despite his constant use of underhanded tactics he is confident in his own abilities on an even playing field.
|“||Most people think a man who fights dirty is too weak to win otherwise. Heh heh... Suits me just fine. A cocky fool is an easy target!||”|
— Cassius's battle quote in Paralogue 8
|“||Kjelle: If you believe in gods, you'd better pray to them now!
Cassius: My, my. Aren't we confident?
Kjelle: I don't fear you, coward!
Cassius: Aye, I suppose not. Most fools assume that liars and sneaks like me are weak. They want us to be weak, see? They NEED it. It lets them hold on to the fantasy that right prevails in the end. Heh... They can think what they want. A cocky fool is an easy target. Truth is, in the end, it's the clever ones who always survive.
Kjelle: A man who takes hostages in order to win a duel has no claim to cleverness. Even an animal would not stoop so low! But enough. I've no more words to waste on the likes of you. My master will have vengeance!
Cassius: Wrong, girl. Your master will have COMPANY!
