088 Canas

A scholar full of intellectual curiosity
A practitioner of ancient magic who met Eliwood’s party at the Port of Badon. He is the type who would even face the dangers of the “Dread Isle” in the pursuit of knowledge. Though Canas sees dark magic as harmless compared to other dark mages, it is actually because he is the “Mountain Hermit” Niime’s fourth son, and her expected heir.

Profile
Gender——————————————-Male
Estimated Age————————————20s
Title————————Pursuer of Knowledge
Origin———————————————-Ilia
Status——Successor of the “Mountain Hermit”
Weapon————————Dark Magic / Staff

Shamans who are masters of the ancient dark arts usually have a scary demeanor, but Canas has a gentle, good-natured demeanor. He does not think too much of the fact he is the successor to the great sorceress Niime. In a support conversation with Pent, it is interesting to see how well the “two great personalities” get along.
His tendency to read books in the midst of battle to satiate his intellectual curiosity at his own pace frequently irritates the short tempered Vaida.

088 Canas

知的探究心が豊富な学者肌
港町バドンでエルウッドたちが出会った、古代魔法使い。研究のために、危険な「間の島」へまで渡ろうとするほどの学究肌だ。闇魔道士の割りに暗い部分を感じさせず、人畜無害にも思えるカナスだが、実は「山の隠者」ニイメの四男であり、後継者としてニイメに期待されているのだ。

プロフィール
性別・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・男
推定年齢・・・・・・・・・・・・20代
称号・・・・・・・・・・・知識の探求者
出身・・・・・・・・・・・・イリア地方
身分・・・・・・・「山の隠者」の後継者
武器・・・・・・・・・・・・闇魔法・杖

古代の闇魔道を使いこなすシャーマン、というと何やら恐ろしいイメージがあるが、カナスは物腰柔らかな好人物だ。偉大な魔道使いニイメの跡継ぎであることにはあまり自覚がないようで、パントの支援会話では、お互いに「すごい人物に出会った」と喜んでいるのが面白い。
戦場でも常に本を読み、知的欲求を満たしている程のマイペースぶりで、短気なヴァイダをイラつかせることもしばしば。
