|~ Castor to Rickard|
Castor (カシム Kashim) is a minor protagonist in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and their respective remakes Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. He is a supporting protagonist in the prequel Fire Emblem: Archanea Saga and its remake, the New Archanea Saga DLC of New Mystery of the Emblem. Born to a poor family, Castor constantly seeks money to help his many siblings and ailing mother. He is voiced by Hori Hideyuki, who also voices Hardin.
Castor is a young man with short azure hair. He wears a short-sleeved blue shirt, dark blue pants with a brown belt, and matching blue boots. Across his upper body, Castor wears a brown quiver and one pauldron on his left shoulder.
Castor presents himself as a timid person, but his seeming lack of confidence belies a calculating and opportunistic character. Upon noticing Rickard cry to earn Lena's sympathy, Castor recognizes this as an act and begins to record Rickard's manipulative tactics to use in the future. Castor is also willing to pledge fealty to anyone who offers him a sufficient amount of gold regardless of moral scruples. However, Castor's motivation for his swindling is ultimately altruistic, as he deeply cares about his impoverished family. He also has a genuine friendship with Princess Caeda, and his defection to the Archanean League is motivated by the guilt of betraying Talys as it is the gold she offers him to support his mother.
Born in Talys, Castor grew up the eldest of eight siblings. His family was not a wealthy one, and one day his father abandoned them for the port town of Galder. With his departure, his wife and their children were left to fend for themselves. Circumstances became more dire when Castor's mother struggled to gave birth to her ninth child. While her pregnancy was ultimately successful, the compilations from labor left her dangerously sick. With her life in the balance and the threat of starvation looming over his other siblings, Castor left Talys for the Archanean mainland to make a living and provide for the others.
War of Shadows
Unfortunately for Castor, his travels in Archanea occurred as Dolhr, galvanized by the resurrection of Emperor Medeus, launched a conquest of the continent. By the time Castor reached the Holy Kingdom of Archanea, the nation crumbled at the hands of Dolhr and its ally Grust. A thirsty Castor reached Archanea's Millennium Court, where he encountered the thief Rickard and his canteen. After conning Rickard into giving him water by exaggerating his dehydration, Castor notified him of his troubles. In turn, Rickard explained that he was collaborating with the cleric Lena to break into the Dolhr-occupied palace and steal its riches to aid the poor. Excited at the prospect of receiving a vast amount of gold, Castor agreed to join Rickard in his heist. The two rendezvoused with Lena and the mercenary Navarre at a local inn and finalized their plans. The next morning, the group began their heist in earnest, but were surprised to encounter another band of thieves within.
