—Sir Therius to Zael
|Voice Actor:|| Hiroki Takahashi (JP)|
Daniel Curshen (EN)
Sir Therius (タシャTasha; Tasha in the Japanese version) is General Asthar's disciple, who follows the Way of the Knight to the letter. Second only to the General in skill, he is headstrong and brash compared to his mentor. He looks down upon mercenaries, thinking that they are undisciplined and only fight for personal gain. Later, he begins to trust Zael on the basis that General Asthar also trusted him. He helps Zael and Calista to uncover some secrets about the Outsider's Power and the story behind it. When Lazulis Island is attacked he is one of the few Knights who stood and fought against the Gurak. He also stood in the way of the other Knights who tried to force Zael when he refused to swear Loyalty to Count Arganan stating that Zael has the features to be a true Knight. He admires Zael's integrity and skill, and is looking forward to battle with him when they have the opportunity.
Therius has wavy white hair that is braided down his back. His eyes are pale green, but are partially obscured by his hair. He wears several white earrings on both ears. Concept artwork shows Therius with a white marking above his left eyebrow, though this is difficult to see from his in-game render. He wears black under his white and gold armor. His shield is emblazoned with the image of an eagle. His white coat has a cross outlined on the back. He carries his Rapier in a black sheath.
Little is known about Therius' past, except for that he trained as an Empire Knight on the continent. He was the only person able to pass the Tower of Trials in many years. He joins General Asthar on his quest to learn the truth behind the land's decay.
Epilogue Duel Edit
During your duel against Therius, he will fight using 3 buffs :Power Strike, Advanced Full Counter, and Speed Strike. While he is using Advanced Full Counter, he will be able to freely attack and move while he counters every close range attack including counter attacks of your own so it is best to use AoE attacks like Gale, Vertical Slice, and Gathering Burst. To remove his barrier, strike down the flaming cans and diffuse the flame magic circles it creates so you can do Guard Break. Speed Strike grants Therius the ability to teleport away from your attacks, and also retaliates by thrusting his sword into you; to counter this, endure a couple blows from Therius while Gathering is activated, then release. He will also be able to use Jump Attack and Combo Slash, which is a 3-hit combo combined with a Slash at the end.
