  • In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Personality and character

Like many characters in Gaiden he has little dialogue and characterization. He appears to be fairly relaxed, and is happy to join Celica on her journey after she helps him and Valbar.


(If Jesey is alive at the end of the game)
Together with Jesey’s group he works hard towards patching up the new country.

(If Jesey is dead at the end of the game)
In the former territory of Geyse, he built a new country. Afterwards, he became known as the Desert Mercenary.

Death quote

Gah. Jeez, I'm such an idiot.
