Starting class



The Binding Blade

Heh. Even Eliwood, the greatest knight in Lycia, is no match for an illness, it seems.
— Damas

Damas (Japanese: ダマス Damasu) is the leader of a group of bandits from Mount Bolm during the onset of the Disturbance of Bern.[1] A lowly bandit from Lycia, he and his band decide to take advantage of Pherae's low defenses, attacking the castle and the adjacent villages.[2]

He manages to strike a village before Roy's group arrives; however, instead of running away, Damas refuses to pass up this opportunity of making gold, and orders his men to attack the reinforcements; resulting in his defeat by Roy's forces.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade


Damas is the boss of Chapter 1.

Screenshot from a July 2001 Famitsu preview
  • Damas has an unused color scheme for his battle sprites that is never seen in normal gameplay, as it is incorrectly assigned to be used as a promoted unit.[4]
  • A prerelease screenshot showed that Damas was originally in the Brigand class, before it was changed to the Fighter class in the final game.

  2. "Bandit: Boss! They've all hidden themselves inside the castle!
    Damas: Heh. Even Eliwood, the greatest knight in Lycia, is no match for an illness, it seems.
    Bandit: Hee hee hee... You were right when you said there wouldn't be many soldiers. They're all getting reading to defend against Bern!
    Damas: Of course I was right, I'm always right, you fool. But reinforcements could be here any minute. All right, you curs, listen up! Kill everyone in the castle while we still got time! Then we can waltz outta here with all the loot.
