Maurice (pronounced /moɹˈis/[key][1]; Japanese: モーリス Maurice) is a character who appears in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Historically, Maurice was one of the 10 Elites who fought alongside Nemesis. By the time of Three Houses, he has been erased from history due to transforming into a demonic beast. His monstrous form is known to mankind as the Wandering Beast (Japanese: 彷徨えし獣 Wandering beast).

Biography

Maurice was one of the Elites who aided Nemesis in his slaughter of the children of the goddess at Zanado. Like the other Elites, he consumed the blood of one of these victims, which manifested as a Crest; he also took that victim's bones and heart to fashion a Hero's Relic, the magical sword Blutgang. During the War of Heroes, he presumably fought alongside Nemesis against Seiros and her army, but lost. Despite losing, he and the other Elites were allowed to maintain power in Fódlan so that the truth of the Crests would not be known. Like the other Elites, he presumably started a family, which led to his bloodline, and thus his Crest, to continue persisting through Fódlan's history.

At some point, the power of his relic transformed him into a hideous monster, and began attacking and eating innocent people. As the Church of Seiros feared these incidents would reveal the true nature of Crests to Fódlan, they erased nearly all traces of Maurice and his life from historical texts, leading to Maurice being forgotten. Maurice's Crest, however, still persisted through his bloodline, and would become known as the "Crest of the Beast", a cursed Crest that would transform its bearers into demonic beasts.

By Imperial Year 1185, Maurice, now known as the "Wandering Beast", would continue stalking Edmund territory to slaughter innocent people during the night. One Crest scholar would soon theorize that the identity of this monster is Marianne, though Byleth quickly drives him off. Later on, the two would venture into Edmund territory to find Maurice himself, and they subsequently kill him. Thanking them for putting an end to his suffering, he then relinquishes Blutgang to Marianne before finally passing on.

Personality and character


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Maurice seems to have little control of his monster's bloodthirsty instincts, and holds a great disdain for the form, describing it as a "nightmare of a thousand years", and wishing to be liberated from it.
