Paulus's portrait from Thracia 776





Starting class



Thracia 776

I was never in favor of the attack on Tarrah. My hesitation has led to many soldiers to their deaths. ...It's my responsibility. Laugh at me, Baldack. Laugh at this old coward.
— Paulus to Baldack

Paulus (Japanese: パウルス Paulus) is a boss appearing in Chapter 14 of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He is a baron from the Empire and the commander of List and Baldack.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776


Paulus leads the second wave against Tarrah in Chapter 14 after the failure of List in the previous chapter. He appears to not support the invasion but goes through with it anyway out of a sense of duty.

It is possible that Paulus is killed by Leif's forces or that Leif's defend Tarrah without killing him.

As a minor boss Paulus has little dialogue and few obvious character traits. He seems to be unsure of the invasion of Tarrah and feels guilt at the death of his soldiers due to his uncertainty. If he is killed his last words are wishing for Bloom to reconsider the invasion.
