Gaius is a thief living in Ylisse and will do any job if paid the right price. He loves sweets and has candy hidden all over his body. His birthday is January 2nd.
He appears in Chapter 6 hired by Validar to help in his assault on Ylisstol to kill Emmeryn. However, Gaius was tricked into believing they were only stealing from the vault. Since this goings against his morals, he can be recruited by Chrom or recruit himself after selling his services for candy Lissa gave her brother.

Personality and character
Gaius is a cool and collected individual. Although he is a professional thief, he is loyal to his morals, refusing to participate in Validar's assassination attempt on Emmeryn. This is further proved when he stays loyal to the group, while understanding some of the Shepherd's view on him, shrugging them off immediately and reassuring them his loyalty. Another example is when he refused to harm Maribelle in the past and tried to help out Chrom and Lissa with stuff he believed was a must be for anyone, regardless of their social standing. Gaius is also a slob; he does not see any problems with wearing the same clothes for an extended amount of time until Cordelia convinced him to tidy himself up. His hobbies include honey collecting, sewing, card tricks, and making his own confections.
He is aloof and tends to give other people nicknames, giving one to everyone he can support, the only exceptions being Sully, who gives him one instead: Chuckles, as well as Cordelia, Cherche, and any of his potential children. He loves sweets and candies, to a degree it is implied he gets paid with them instead of gold. His in-game expressions are references to this, with him saying things like "Piece of cake" or "Sweet" when he levels up or receives help from an ally.
He gets the most nosebleeds in the army.
