I said "sweeten the deal", didn't I? Don't get me wrong, I'll take the gold, too. Later. Unless you've got more of these. ...Have you got more of these?!
— Gaius, to Chrom

Gaius (Japanese: ガイア Guire) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening. He 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.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

He appears as an enemy in Chapter 6 with Validar's forces. While most of the others under Validar's command entered Ylisstol to assassinate Emmeryn, Gaius was only told that they were going to rob a vault.[1] Gaius, having no intention of harming Emmeryn, even calling her as a "sweet lady",[2] is then easily persuaded to switch sides by Chrom and Lissa's bag of sweets after a brief conversation.

Despite not being a legacy character, there is a unique item named for Gaius available through the Barracks or event tiles: Gaius's Confect.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

There are two different variations of Gaius available to Heroes, both of which are tied to his storyline appearance in Awakening. The normal variation of Gaius is one of the characters available to be summoned by players from the game's initial launch. A summer variation of Gaius was made available between the period of June 30, 2017 through August 1, 2017 as part of the summoning event surrounding the launch of the Ylissean Summer update.

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.

Endings

Gaius - Candy Stealer (single ending)
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Tales of Sticky-Fingers Gaius are still told in taverns everywhere.

Gaius and Robin
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Gaius, above all else.

Gaius and Lissa
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Lissa always insisted on going along, and the two survived many a comically dire predicament together.

Gaius and Sully
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Sully disapproved and was said to pester her husband to take the examination for Ylissean knighthood instead.

Gaius and Miriel
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Miriel soon began researching new and more-powerful sweeteners for her husband to enjoy.

Gaius and Sumia
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. His wife, Sumia, raised pegasi, and her flower-petal readings were said to bring good luck to all.

Gaius and Maribelle
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Having studied to become a magistrate, Maribelle feared the day she would meet her own husband in court.

Gaius and Panne
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Amazingly, Panne dirtied her hands right along with her husband, using her keen night vision to expedite jobs.

Gaius and Cordelia
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. As his wife, Cordelia was in charge of keeping law and order, Gaius dreaded the thought of seeing her on the job.

Gaius and Nowi
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Nowi found her husband's work intriguing and was said to often come along and help out.

Gaius and Tharja
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Meanwhile, his wife, Tharja, set up shop and hexed people for a living. The pair were said to get many odd looks.

Gaius and Olivia
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. His wife, Olivia, wandered down more than one dark alley just to make sure he was safe and sound.

Gaius and Cherche
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. When her work in Rosanne was done, Cherche would return home and cook for her husband, much to his delight.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Gaius appears as a collectible trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Gaius
SSB3DS Trophy Gaius.png Here's a man who really would take candy from a baby. This Ylissean thief is the cool, collected sort, willing to do any kind of job if the price is right. That said, he's got quite a sweet tooth, and keeping up a cool image is really hard if you're always eating lollipops and hoarding sweets. His silly nicknames for people don't help much either... Random

Trivia

Gaius's swimsuit CG from Summer Scramble.
  • Gaius placed fourth in the men's bracket on the official Awakening website's character popularity poll.[3] Like the other high ranking characters in said poll he received a swimsuit graphic in the Scramble series of Awakening's DLC; specifically in Summer Scramble.
  • In Gaius's swimsuit graphic, he has a piece of cloth tied around his left forearm. It is possible, and heavily implied by Gaius's conversation with Anna,[4] that this is meant to cover up his convict's tattoo mentioned in his support conversation with Robin.[5]
    • The cloth around his arm also appears in the artwork for his Thief Exposed variant in Heroes.
