Y-yes, sire.
— Debias when faced with Legance's outbursts.

Debias (Japanese: デビアス Debias) is the boss of the seventh chapter of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is an Ostian lieutenant who works for Legance, and one of the heads of the rebellion against Hector.

When the remnants of the Lycian Army reach the city, Legance leaves the castle gates to Debias, whose only hope lies in the incoming reinforcements from Bern. Despite being doubtful about the situation and Legance's little trust in him, Debias is absolutely loyal to his general, which costs him his life.

  2. "One thing I've noticed with the characters Debias and Gheb is that, as fat characters, their names seem to be warpings of the Japanese word for fat (debu). It would have probably been more accurate in the English version, actually, to change their names to something that gives that impression to an English-speaker." — gringe, FE6 Localization Patch v1.0 - Seriously, we did something, Serenes Forest Forums, Published: 2015-07-11, Retrieved: 2015-08-01
