Biography

Augustine's profile
“ An aristocrat of unknown sex, with a stunning attack to which all surviving enemies will attest. ”

Augustine is a man from the former Scarlet Moon Empire who loves nobility as well as elegance of beauty. Six years ago, Augustine was also a recipient of a Rose Brooch, an award at Vincent de Boule's beauty contest and the two became "true friends". He had then set out on a journey of sorts, giving the world the privilege of witnessing his stylish swordplay and attention-grabbing outfit.

During the War of the Champions, Augustine joined the Fire Bringer after they recovered the prized Rose Brooch he had misplaced during his travels. His elegant and artistic sword skills lend themselves well to the cause, as did his Red Rose Rune. He was very proud of his appearance and had a slight obsession with removing split ends. Augustine was also very fond of the suggestion box, writing several letters to the Flame Champion offering his fashion advice, invites for afternoon, or asking opinions on flowers to be delivered to the castle.

Following the war, Augustine would travel to the Toran Republic after hearing rumours of a beautiful palace there.

Recruiting

Augustine can be found looking at the sea in Vinay del Zexay. Speak to him there for a scene. This triggers the appearance of the Rose Brooch at the Iksay Village item shop's Rare Items list. Go there and purchase it (8,000 potch or so) and return it to him, now you two will be "true friends". Can be done in Chris' Chapter 2, or during Thomas' chapters. If you are going to do Thomas' segment, pick him up, he is great early on.

Trivia

  • Considering he is already a "true friend" of Vincent de Boule and a stems from the Scarlet Moon Empire, one would think he already visited the Toran Republic. His ending, however, implies he has never been there before. His ending might be a reference to the home of Milich Oppenheimer in Gregminster.
  • Augustine's weapon upgrades as Manyola (マニョーリャ Manyōrya) to Orchide (オルキデ Orukide). The first one, Margrit (マルグリット Maruguritto), cannot be used without a cheating device.
  • Augustine can reach S level in his unique Parry skill.
  • Augustine shows questionable taste in his letter about Kenji having some sort of skill that he too must pursue.
  • Augustine is the first user of the Red Rose Rune in the chronology of released titles, however, in the in-game chronology, he is the last known user.
