Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Gaius Is A Thief With A Sweet Tooth

By Ishaan . January 27, 2013 . 12:30pm

Another three character profiles from Fire Emblem: Awakening are available via Nintendo’s 3DS Facebook page. These highlight Donnel, Panne and Gaius.


A villager from a remote corner of Ylisse, Donnel came to the fight with just his farming experience but he is eager to learn and shows a great deal of promise.


Panne from Fire Emblem Awakening is a nationless shape-shifter and the last of the taguel, a race that can communicate with animals.


Gaius is our Fire Emblem Awakening character spotlight for today. He is a cool and capable Ylissean the thief who will take any job for the right price. He’s also absolutely obsessed with sweets.


Fire Emblem: Awakening will be released on February 4th in the U.S. and in April in Europe.

    He’s got an ice cream truck armed to the teeth with firepower? Oh. You mean sweet tooth, not Sweet Tooth. :P.

  • Panne is one hot doggy~ Also Gaius what happened to you since Xillia 2?!

    • Prinnydoom

      She’s a rabbit…….or maybe a hare i cant remember which one.

      • Makes things not less awesome. Hot Bunny Penne~

        • Nintendo is throwing in bunny girls in their games now? Oh my…

          • Arrei

            Are we in the Twilight Zone?

          • ragingmerifes

            It’s okay to be Takei.

    • Gaius reminds me more of Battle Star Galatica than Xillia man.

      • Davide Costa

        Just wait “Merlin” then and oldhood can change things pretty radically.

  • One more week!

    • AnimusVox

      I know X3
      I’m getting the system too. February is going to be a good month for me just getting this game and system <3

      • Oh cool! You’re so lucky to be getting that beautiful FE 3DS! I really wanted one but I had a 3ds prior to hearing about the Fire Emblem Special Edition :(

        Oh well… I’ll just have to settle with a great game and visual arts book :D

        • AnimusVox

          Thank you :>
          I almost got the standard bluish one but the day before I was going to purchase it this was announced.

        • AnimusVox

          And must you mock me for not getting the art book? Sir or madam you wound me ;n;

          • LoL
            You should definitely be getting the Art Book if you pre-ordered. At least that is what I thought was going on(?)

          • AnimusVox

            That’d be awesome if I am getting it. I’m a sucker for artbooks and I love Kozaki’s work.

  • Ayaka

    The villager is somehow… intriguing.

    Can’t wait to try this game, hope it will be “God I want to smash the console with all of my repressed rage” in the same way all the Fire Emblem titles were.

    • Ethan_Twain

      Well it won’t be that way necessarily…

      It’s your choice. Do you want to choose “units killed stay dead forever” and want to smash your 3DS with all your repressed rage, or do you want to choose “units killed come back after the battle” and bring shame to your ancestors?

      No pressure. It’s your choice, really.

  • riceisnice

    Is Panne wearing pants?

  • ragingmerifes

    I’m so glad I can have Waifus in-game, because I just picked one!

    • JustThisOne

      Totally! Gaius will fit in nicely in my harem.

  • Gaius remids me of those smokers from games and animes who are turned sweet-addicts so localization teams can pretend they are always sucking a lollipop instead of puffing a cigar…

    This one seems legit though. ;-)

    • Davide Costa

      So he chews lollypops so hard to make the stick smoke just like Gintama?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Panne…..can become waifu?

    • Herok♞

      I think she can.

      • Ronald Bixler

        She can.

  • JustThisOne

    I love thieves! And I love candy! He’s going in my main party for sure now. (Unless he’s complete poop.)

  • fireemblembeast

    I’m marrying either Gaia or Krom :3

  • AnimusVox

    Watch out Viera there’s a new furry in town.

  • Izzy Miyake

    Panne? Last of her kind? Know that that means?
    Time to repopulate XD

  • why am i counting down the days for a game on a system i dont own :3

    • s07195

      I find myself doing this a lot too.

  • Barrylocke89

    Gaius: I’ll help your group sneak into the enemy fortress, but it’s gonna cost you.

    Chrom: I’ll give you a bag of Skittles.

    Gaius: …ok, deal!

    • DualCell

      Better candy than cigs, those things will kill you!!! x(

  • GuyAlpha

    I was never good at leveling thieves. I wonder what Villagers will be like.

  • brian

    Hnnnnnngggg, dat furry.

  • Hyli

    Obsessed with sweets? Gaius, a man after my own heart…helps that his outfit is way cool, too.

  • That Panne character is the most recognizably Yusuke Kozaki-ish design I’ve seen from this game thus far.

  • Kitestwinblades

    Fire Emblem still have assassins, right? So…
    That sweets addicted Thief has the potential to one hit kill anyone later on? XD
