Desaix appears as a boss twice in Gaiden. In his first appearance, in chapter 1, he isn't really intended to be defeated, though it is possible to beat him if the player levels up their units on monster encounters. In the second encounter, in chapter 3, he is a normal fight.
Personality and character
|“||Worms of the rebel forces! You think you can defeat me? Slayder, command the cavalry to scatter those bastards!||”|
— Desaix, in act 1
|“||Could it be this is all you’ve got…? However, I, Desaix, won’t be defeated so easily!||”|
— Desaix, in act 3
|“||Hehehe... Foolish bastards. What you just defeated was Lord Desaix's double. Lord Desaix has already returned to his own lands. I’ll pay you back in full for this someday. Until next time!!||”|
— 'Desaix', appears if Desaix is 'killed' in act 1.
|“||Gr... Mycen, the bastard! Is he planning to sell out Zofia to Rudolf's -- the little brat -- ? That fucking traitor!!||”|
— Desaix, act 3
As the Gaiden manga skips the majority of chapters one and two, Desaix's first appearance in-person in the manga is at his fortress. Desaix plans to execute Mathilda, a Zofian knight with connections to the Deliverance, as an example.
Alm rushes to her aid and to defeat Desaix. During the battle Desaix lands a fatal blow on Kliff, enraging Alm. Initally, Desaix laughs off Alm's attacks, claiming that his armor has been made impenetrable by Duma. Alm, despite shattering his sword on Desaix's armor, is not daunted, and uses his broken sword to gouge out Desaix's eye.
Defeated, Desaix quickly changes his story, saying his armor had been cursed by Duma, and caused him to commit despicable acts. He thanks Alm for freeing him from the curse. Alm asks Clive what they should do with Desaix, and Clive says the answer is clear; but since Alm is the leader of the Deliverance, he should officially pass judgement. Alm sentences the traitor Desaix to death, and Desaix is executed.
